Listen and you will hear truth from the Almighty. I am at work to restore all things to what I have intended them to be. Sin has damaged much. Can a man live righteously before Me? He can’t in his fallen state. Only with the substitution of My Son can He come before Me. Only with the sanctifying work of My Spirit, can he live free from the power of sin over him. I am not deterred. I will have My bride to surround My Son. He will be glorified in them.
Listen for clear direction, then act. Stand out from the crowd of unbelievers and sinners. Live as an example of faith. These times are rapidly approaching. Hardships will abound. I will take care of My own. I will be glorified here on earth. Stephen glorified Me in his death. Do not be afraid of death, for life is just around the corner. Even so, you will testify and glorify Me. People will take notice of the power and boldness of My people in that day.
Stand with Me. Stand for Me. Be on My side. Defend Me before others.
Be alert in the Spirit. Pray in tongues more to let it power you. Seek My wisdom for what you are doing. Give Me thanks and praise.
Come alive to live for Me and not for yourself. There is more to life than food and clothes. It is relationships that will count and have meaning. With people you love and care for, and with Me as your Maker.
Who do you want to care for you, to be concerned about you? Have you been sowing seeds of concern and love for others? They may see your integrity, but do they see your love? I am the One who brings favor. I raise up and I bring low. I will have mercy on whom I choose. I see the heart. I notice the one who is truly seeking Me for who I am, and not for what I can do for them.
There is a time and a place for everything. I have a time for people to call upon Me. I listen and I respond with wonderful changes in a person’s life. They become aware of My Spirit speaking to them in My Word, but also in that quiet inner voice. You have to train your spirit to hear that voice. You have to shut out the clamor of this world so that you hear better. The more you call upon Me and listen, the more we can grow in relationship. I like that.
Is My grace sufficient to cover sin? Can I not forgive the unforgivable? I died to save and redeem sinners. I died for you. I gave you life.
My grace is covering you. Don’t take this lightly. Be thankful and humble.
You can come before Me any time of day. I am here waiting. I am using this trial to awaken their spirits. Keep praying for them. The Lord sustains the righteous. He looks for the heart to see if there is faith in Him. Their plans will fail. My plans will succeed.
I will come when you call. I cherish our time together. I want this for all My people. You will be pleased and surprised at what I am doing in her. Be generous and loving.
A man of faith, who can find? Is that you? You believe, will your life reflect that belief? I will see to that as you follow Me. It’s not what they see, but what I see that counts. Humble yourself before men, deny yourself, and I will lift you up.
