“My Spirit is in you working to draw you ever closer to me. I love sweet fellowship with you each morning when you bring your requests and your praises to me. Your burdens become lighter as you lay your cares at my feet for you know that when you give them to me, your peace is not disrupted, and you can continue in the things you have to do.
There is so much freedom in knowing that you don’t walk alone; there is freedom in knowing that because I love you so much, I will always provide and care for you. Your needs are truly met in me.
As the light of my love surrounds you, your horizons are broadened, and you can see beyond what is right in front of you toward my greater purposes and plans. You are never limited by your perceived limitations as you walk with me. Take hold of the power within you so you can accomplish all that I have for you to do in this life.
There is a satisfaction that runs deep into your soul as you fulfill my will and purposes. This is the greatest experience my children can have, yet probably the hardest to obtain because it is spiritual in nature. It requires seeking and effort on your part. It is not something that simply happens. It comes as a result of your journey with me, it is found in me through faith.
You need to have eyes to see and the will to follow. My heavens are opened to all who do this, and you will see my glory in the land of the living. You will experience joy that sustains you, joy that carries you through good and bad times.
I am with you. I am for you, and I long for you to desire more of me. Trust me and I will show you these truths. I will become real to you in ways you never fathomed.”
- “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7: 7,8
- “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” Acts 17: 24 – 27
