Abba Father…in this all-prevailing, all-pervading, atmosphere of unwavering child-like trust, my soul is continually at rest in an unruffled child-like rest. Though the storms of life may be raging…a fierce tempest whipping the waves into a tumultuous, churning turmoil…beneath the surface, in the depths of God, all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled. [Mark 4:36-41]
** **, greatly beloved, the proof of faith is in living your life in accordance with, and in agreement with, what you say you believe. There are many hundreds of verses in My Word where I promise My sufficiency to meet every need you may encounter during your lifetime. It is faith alone that embraces these promises and makes them yours. It is faith alone that enables you to live a peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled life, always living in the Presence of the Lord. Do you believe what I Myself have promised, ** **?
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. [1 Cor 10:13 KJV] Beloved child, My Word spoken here does not mean just temptations to sin, but includes every kind of testings and trials. My intention is better expressed as follows: Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps His promise, and He will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, He will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out. [1 Cor 10:13] Do you believe that God is the Sovereign All-Ruler over all things, and that I will not allow you to be tested beyond your ability to deal with it? Then why do you feel so overwhelmed and depressed by the difficulties and pressures in your life? Why wouldn’t you look to Me to give you the strength to endure it as I have promised?
Do not be afraid…I will save you. I have called you by name…you are Mine. When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God Who saves you. therefore, let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He Who promised is faithful. [Isa 43:1-3; Heb 10:23] Do you believe My incredible assurances given you in these two Scriptures, and have you embraced them as your own? Then why are you despairing and giving up hope in your troubles and hard trials, and why are you so depressed? Why do you think God has abandoned you, and does not hear your prayers? Am I not the God Who saves you?
Friends, brothers and sisters…
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. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are 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.”
