“It is through a heart of love that everything can be accomplished for my glory. It is through a heart of tenderness that you can be effective for me. It is through your smile that you can bring refreshment to weary souls. It is by kindness and grace that I can move in and through you. You are not empty for I have put my Spirit in you. You have wisdom because you have me; you have grace because you have been given grace; you have love because of my great love for you.
My presence goes with you wherever you go, my peace is yours in every situation. Yet, sometimes you must choose to receive it because your spirit is not always in tune with mine — you must overcome your flesh. Responding in your flesh delays my response time. My Spirit waits for you to recognize that I am with you, desiring for you to allow me to be part of what you are doing. I am working in you to cultivate your senses. As you become more aware of my presence, your ability to sense me and respond to my Spirit at work in you will increase.
I am always only a breath away, that breath can be a whisper, a quick prayer, a gentle thought. Even in quietness, my considerable power is effective to break barriers and open doors to provide for the needs of the moment. Everything is possible with me. Abide in me always and you will see my extraordinary work in your life. Even simple things can become miracles that bring great joy, comfort, and peace to those who need it.
You are loved by the Great I AM, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. I reign in power and in truth, but I look for those whose hearts are contrite and open to my Spirit, those who abide in me, those who acknowledge my greatness and follow where I lead. I always make a way for my children, you will always receive my provision for your life. I will bless you and pour my Spirit out upon you so that you are able to do all that I have planned for you to do. Look to me and you will see what can be accomplished because of my great love for you through Christ Jesus, my Son.”
