From the Father’s Heart for you today:
I am the Alpha and Omega (Rev. 1:8), the beginning and the end (Rev. 22:13). I hold all time in My hands.
Look to Me.
I am around every corner.
I go before you so you need not fear “..though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea…” (Ps. 46:1,2,3 in other words you need not fear anything at any time).
I Am your refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.
Speak My truth. Know it and speak it in love. And as you focus on LOVE, don’t miss the directive to speak My truth (not yours or someone else’s if it does not line up with My truth).
I will meet you in those moments and guard your ways before and behind (Ps. 139:5).
Walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7). Don’t shrink back because of a lack of response.* Trust that I Am at work. Choose not to need or require visible results as a precursor for further obedience. I am always on the move (whether it is visible or invisible, immediate results or down the road). I am not static OR ineffective! So go take the risk.
You are My witness, My servant whom I have chosen so that you may know Me and believe Me (Is. 43:10).
Come. BE in My word. This is your personal invitation. Know Me, experientially, because you’ve been with Me and stepped out in obedience and proven that what I say is true.
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1,2
*Jeremiah’s example comes to mind. He obeyed and spoke forth all that God called him to and never saw any change in the circumstances or the people he spoke to. Yet he pressed on in that obedience for approximately 40 years.
