When this is over, I will be glorified in many ways. My people will shine and give testimony to My love and grace. The people of this world are seeking answers. Most have never gone through a hard time or have faced death in this way before.
Who I am matters to God. He created Me for His purposes. God loves Me and He is good. This knowledge sustains me when I face hard times.
The reward of faithfulness is great. Trust is earned over time. Love is shown in big and small sacrifices for others. Love given away breeds love returned. Thankfulness encourages good deeds. Humility acknowledges God’s sovereignty and grace.
The heavens declare the glory of God. All that I have made shows My handiwork, My imprint. I made variety because it pleased Me. I made so many to show how majestic I AM. I made man to share these wonders with Me. I am the Source for all life.
Come unto Me all who labor, who are full of anxious thoughts, and I will transform your lives. My rest is satisfying to the soul.
I have given you this pause to allow you to rest, to think, to assess all that you are doing. What is important? What is good and pleasing to Me? A trial always brings out what is inside a man. Who does he trust in – himself or in Me? Can you repent if I show you your sins? Can you be winsome, friendly and pleasing and not judgmental, quiet and too focused, if I give you the grace to change? Your wife is not perfect, but she is a measuring tool to let you know how you are doing. If you can change before her, you can change for others as well. Love one another as I have loved you.
Be at peace. Rejoice and be glad for your name is written in My book. Many will come on that day trying to cross over to where I am, but they will be turned away. What they based their hope on was a lie from the enemy. They should have known the truth, but they refused to read My Word to discover the truth for themselves. Instead they followed others and believed a watered-down gospel of works and false teachings of this world and demons.
Who is watching you? Do you have a reputation, either good or bad? You are My witnesses, My light shining into the darkness. The spiritual world can see easily. Your light becomes brighter as you are following My Spirit, repenting from the ways of this world, putting on Christ.
