The power that works within you is faith in Me. Believe Me. Believe My Word. Abraham believed Me and it was credited to him as righteousness. And without faith it is impossible to please Me, for he who comes to Me must believe that I am God, and I am a rewarder of those who seek Me.
Walk by faith, not by sight. See Me first and everything else will be taken care of. Trust in Me with your whole heart and I will lead you in the way you should go. Delight yourself in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart. Submit to Me, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to profit you, to give you a future and a hope.
I am especially fond of you. There is nothing you can or can’t do to earn My love. When I see you I see the apple of My eye, My chosen one, My beloved bride. Rejoice My child. You are exceedingly and abundantly loved.
My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me was My cry on the cross when all sin was heaped on Me. I took all that sin on Myself so you could be free from it. I chose the cross so you would escape the death sentence that was given you. I conquered death so you could live. Live My child. Live free. Live the life I died for you to have. Rejoice and be glad in Me. Let praise and worship be ever present in your heart and on your lips. Be joyful and overflowing with thankfulness. Life is what I have created you for. It is what I died for. Choose life.
We watched the Passion of the Christ for the second time last night. It’s hard to watch, but very appropriate for this time of Year. Good Friday is tomorrow. When I was watching him being brutally beaten and then crucified, I asked, Why would you knowingly put yourself through this torture? I heard in my spirit, “Because I love you so much.” What a good way to remember His body broken for us and His blood shed on the cross because He loves us so much.
He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way. But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53
A house divided cannot stand. Neither can a divided mind.
My child, the things that you carry are burdensome. A load too heavy for your heart. Listen to Me, My child, even to your old age I will bear you. I have done it, and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4
My child, do not go after the things of this world. Do not get caught up in the culture. Those who love Me will stand for truth, even when the truth is not popular. My truth will set you free. My way will lead you to peace, joy, fulfillment and life. The world’s way ends in death.
My child, I am able to do the impossible. There is no impossible with Me. I created the Universe and I created you. Set your mind on things above. Let Me take care of the things below. I am your Father who loves you with everlasting love.
