“O taste and see that the LORD is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”
From the Father’s Heart:
I am for you (Romans 8:31), not against you. You are My servant whom I have chosen (Isaiah 43:10).
I draw you near to hear Me.
Don’t allow the enemy to distract you and make you feel “less than” and steal “this” from you—this precious time with Me. Draw near and see. See Me for who I am—high and lifted up (Isaiah 52:13) and in control. And see yourself for who you are—My child. Draw near and partake of all you have for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Enter into My REST and know that you are BELOVED.
Beloved of God.
Rest in that love and take delight. Then do all out of that settled-ness of spirit and mind empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Behold, I make all things new (Revelation 21:3,4,5). Nothing is impossible for Me – not a thing (Luke 1:37), so behold the greatness and the glory of your God. Look full in My wonderful face and let all of earth fade away with its fears and considerations.
What matters for eternity?
This is the clarifying question, so come and seek. Come and rest (Matthew 11:28). Come for your assignment and follow Me (John 10:27)! I will lead you to lead others on the inexplicable, incomprehensible path of life laid out before you (Ephesians 3:20).
Step by step.
Take today’s step—the step right in front of you.
Listen and Write (spend some time in prayer with pen and paper asking the following questions):
-Lord, your sheep hear Your voice. I draw near. What do you want me to hear today?
-Lord, show me how I have been made to feel “less than” and have retreated so that I can combat those lies with the truth of Your Word. Remind me of the lies that I have taken to heart, and tell me Your truth.
-Remind me of what really matters for eternity; I choose to let this set my daily priorities.
-And show me today’s next step of obedience, the one that gets me closer to
Your desired destiny for my life.
Blessings to you,
