** **, greatly beloved…are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from My knowledge and consent! I know the very number of hairs on your head…not one hair of your head will fall to the ground apart from My will! [Father God…Matt 10:29-30]
So why do you worry, why do you fret? Why are you anxious, afraid? Let the words of My Divine Son Jesus to His disciples on their boat, when they had lost all hope in the midst of a fierce storm, ring in your own heart: Why are you frightened? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by the cares, concerns, and responsibilities of life. Cast the whole of your care…all your anxieties and distress, all your fears and worries, all your concerns and burdens, once and for all…upon Me, for I care for you affectionately and care about you watchfully. [1 Pet 5:7]
My beloved child…Why do you become disappointed and discouraged, disheartened and disillusioned, over results, outcomes, and conclusions of the work you are doing? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by results, outcomes, conclusions. Results belong to Me; it is My work, not yours. And no one can thwart My plans, or hinder My purposes, or override My will!
Child of the Most High God! Why are you downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, distressed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by circumstances, events, and things that touch your life. There are no such things as random occurrences, accidental happenings, or incidental incidences. I have either Personally allowed them, or caused them, to touch your life…for My Own good purposes.
** **, why do you lament over the past; why are you anguished about the present, and agonize over the future? Do you still have no faith? Yesterday is gone; it is unchangeable, unalterable, irreversible. Remain undaunted by your sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections. I am well able to restore the years the locusts have eaten. Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before you, press on toward the mark for the prize of My high calling in Christ Jesus My Son. And do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Seek first My Kingdom and My Righteousness, and all necessary things will be provided for you as well. As for the present, My child…today is the day the Lord has made, so rejoice and be glad in it!
O My precious child…why are you angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, annoyed? Do you still have no faith? Remain undaunted by what people think or say or do. I, the Lord, am your helper; you needn’t be afraid. What can man do to you? Who shall separate you from the love of Christ My Son? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger or sword? No, in all these things you are more than a conqueror through Him Who loved you!
Have you not yet embraced My fathomless love for My children? Why do you become impatient, or grow weary of waiting? Do you still have no faith? I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do good works…works that I Myself have planned in advance for you to do. Every day of your life was recorded in My book before you were born…before you ever began to breathe. So be still, and know that I AM your Father and your God!
Abba Father…forgive me for my lack of faith, and enable me by the Power of Your enabling grace to trust in Your absolute Sovereignty over all Creation, and Your jealous love for Your child. You have placed me like a seal over Your heart, like a seal on Your arm; Your love for me is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns within You like blazing fire, like a mighty flame! Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls…yet will I rejoice in the Lord; I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage, enabling me to walk upon my high places…places of trouble and suffering and responsibility! Hallelujah!
My beloved child…abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence. If you will only just abide in My promised rest, you will be continually at rest in an unruffled child-like rest, and you will enjoy being with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy. ** **, it is unbelief that keeps you from entering into My promised rest, and prevents you from remaining in My promised rest! No matter how great your pressures and trials, how anxious your thoughts; no matter how hopeless your situation, how clouded your future; no matter how sad your loss, how deep the agony of your soul; no matter how weary or burdened…come to Me, you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest! Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly, gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. [Matt 11:28-30]
Friends, brothers and sisters in Christ…
Are you a child of the Most High God, born by means of a second birth into the Family of God? There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God.
While they were gazing intently into the sky as Jesus was ascending into Heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. Men of Galilee, they said, Why are you standing here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, Who was caught away and lifted up from among you into Heaven, will return in just this same way in which you saw Him go into Heaven. [Acts 1:10-11]
I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
Abide with me:
