Do you hear Me when I whisper, “Trust Me and do not be afraid.”? Trials and challenges come from every direction, it’s true. Fear and discouragement are favorite tools of Our enemy. When you start to take your eyes off of Me, when you begin to succumb to your fear, affirm you faith by calling on My name and trusting My Word. Shout to the Lord with a loud voice, praise My Holy name. Compose yourself in My Presence, and walk boldly into your day.
In the morning when you rise, seek My face. Before you begin you day, ask Me to go with you. My joy will sustain you as surely as manna preserved the people of Israel in the desert for 40 years. Indeed, I Am more than enough to fulfill your dreams and satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.
Come, dear one. Allow My Spirit to strengthen you, energize you, motivate you to overcome any obstacle that the enemy throws into Our path. We are, after all, more than conquerers.
Take My hand, impetuous one, and focus on Me. Trust that I am leading you in the path you should take. When you look past Me you are missing My present direction and My present blessing. Yes, We must go into the valley, true; however We do not stay there.
Life lessons must be learned in the valleys, and the greatest blessings will not be missed when your eyes are on Me. You may feel isolated and alone, but you are planted and being nourished. Embrace your time of growth. Remember? I have plans for you….
Will you gather with My people today in the sanctuary so you can experience My unconditional love and know that you are completely understood? Through My eyes you are clothed in robes of My righteousness, cleansed by My blood.
Rejoice with others in My Presence as you experience My Spirit within you, holding you, loving you….changing you from glory to glory. Indeed, dance before Me in obedience to My Word.
Be encouraged, My child, as you struggle to stay focused on Me. I know that your heart’s desire is to remain aware of My Presence throughout your day – just pause and think about how far We have come in our personal relationship! Positive thinking will take you farther than the critical spirit you are tempted with each day.
Truly, this world is designed to distract you from My influence.
Rather than feeling guilty, allow your spirit to joyfully run back into My Presence. I AM here; I AM here! Find Me waiting for you…
