Abba Father…an unwavering child-like trust is the all-prevailing attitude of my heart.  It is the framework out of which everything in my life is determined…every action I take, every response to the things that touch my life, every word I speak, and every thought I think and present.  Everything I am to do is filtered through an unwavering child-like trust in You, Father. [Ps 16:7; 42:8; 143:8]

**        **, 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, ** **?

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. [Isa 40:31]  Do you believe that I will renew your strength as you wait upon Me?  Are you weary, heavy laden, and losing heart?  Why, then, have you not sat before the Lord and waited upon Me; I have promised to renew your strength, haven’t I?

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us…they help us learn to be patient.  And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady. [Rom 5:3-4]  Do you believe that problems and trials are good for you, helping you to develop patience, character, and a deeper trust in God?  Then why haven’t you put aside your impatience and inquired of God as to what I would have you learn through your difficulties?  Why haven’t you learned to rejoice in your problems and trials, knowing that I am going to make those things work together for your good…that there is a blessing God has for you that can only be attained by going through the particular difficulty I have allowed to touch your life?

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.”
