January 30

I have the answer you seek, beloved one.  

Do not be impatient. Trust Me. I am waiting for you to develop those two important traits: patience and trust. You may think you have achieved them, but you haven’t yet.  

There is a plan. I have not left you and I never will.

Keep going in the direction you are headed. Keep praying so that I will stay close to you. Trust in Me to guide and direct you.

Again, you have been assured that I answer all of your prayers and that I guide you, yet you are not feeling it now. If you really want to have a clearer knowledge of My guidance, fast and pray. This will allow you to have a stronger sense of My will for your life.

The answers are there……in Me. Only in Me.

Psalms 37:4-5 The Passion Translation:

“Find your delight and true pleasure in the Lord, and He will give you what you desire the most. Give God the right to direct your life, and as you trust Him along the way, you’ll find He pulled it off perfectly!”

Oh, my troubled child, there is so much on your mind this morning….things which should be laid at My feet and forgotten, knowing I will show you the way through each and every one of them.

Today, concentrate on My love. The love that follows you, surrounds you and guides you. 

How can I get through the hard shell you put around you? Why won’t you freely accept the greatest gift ever offered?

The shell you put up cripples you not only for happiness and peace here, but it inhibits your growth in Me. Letting go, laying your pain, insecurity and unbelief down frees you to openness and peace with Me.  

I see you as a child ready to fly, and so willing if you could just lose the shell that holds you down!  Lay it at My feet and come fly with Me to the adventure I have planned for you.  

How I love and adore you, My child!!

Just take a step towards Me. I will show you how. Lay your shell at the cross. True joy is waiting for you.

Ephesians 2:8 The Passion Translation:

“For by grace you have been saved by faith. Nothing you did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the love gift from God that brought us to Christ!”

January 28

Where is your faith, child? Do you doubt Me or My promises when I so lovingly say over and over again how I will take care of you and answer your prayers?  

I do not have the problems of the economy you are facing. I have the universe at My disposal.  Absolutely everything and anything is possible IF YOU BUT ASK. (you have not because you ask not…) Ask BELIEVING, and I will answer because I ALWAYS do. Why do I have to tell you that over and over?

Sometimes I get impatient at your unbelief when My daily miracles surround you. Large and small ones happen in your personal life every day.

I know what you need. Ask, believing, and then thank Me for the answer, showing your faith. Then you can rest peacefully as My carefree child who KNOWS they are so ardently loved and cared for.

Have faith, dear one. Just ask. 

Philippians 4:6-7 The Passion Translation:

“Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.”

January 27

Let Me overwhelm you today with My love. Let Me surround you with the intensity of it’s reality. It is real.  

How could I have possibly given up My Son to be horribly beaten and crucified if it were not for love so intense the world could not hold it?

Yet you wander around wondering how there could be a God that is capable of love when you hear of disasters where children are killed, or your own family member suffers and then is taken away from you.  

Where is that God of love then?  

I am beside you, at times carrying you, weeping along with you, showing you My love by allowing the scenario to play out.

I want all the pain and suffering to be over but there is an appointed time when all will come to see and know Good from evil. Then the plan will be complete. Then evil will never be able to raise its head again, and My love will shine over all. 

You can’t see what I see, or know what I know. I am just asking you to trust that, as hard as it seems, it is because of love you are where you are.

So just for today, just for this moment, lay your head on My shoulder, and let Me fill you with My overwhelming love.  

It will carry you through. I will carry you through.

Isaiah 46:4 New King James Version:

“Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you.”

January 26

Every time you close your eyes and think of Me, I am there, in your presence, answering the yearnings of your soul….the yearnings that only I am aware of.

I do not want you to be afraid of the future, to toss and turn, not knowing what to do. I will guide you, beloved. Do not fear.

There is a way mapped out for you and it is the way I have chosen for you to go.

Remember, I am interested in forming your character, not making you comfortable. What does that mean? This world will not be all rose-covered paths with everything and everyone you want. It will be a path, sometimes long and narrow, that leads you closer to Me. It’s only when you look away from Me that your road takes detours.

But you want the answers more clearly, you say? The answer is there in front of you. I will never let you down. Just put one foot in front of the other. Take My hand and trust that it’s securely in Mine, and that I am leading the way.

Come to Me often during the day. I will show you the answers. 

I AM THE ANSWER.

Deuteronomy 31:8 New King James Version:

“And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.””

January 25

Whether you are sick or whether you are well, I am always with you. You may not be able to sense My presence at all times, but I am always there. 

You see, I am in you, as well. Jesus’ prayer that we be one as He and I are one was fulfilled on the cross. That means I dwell in you at all times since you have accepted Me into your life.

When you are sick or don’t feel well, other feelings are in your body rather than My free-flowing ones. That is when you need to lean on My promises and go out in faith because you know. Not only because of the promises and stories in the Bible, but because of our history together. Yours and Mine.  

We have a relationship that will never die because Jesus made it possible.

Now go and rest your weary head and KNOW because you KNOW that I am with you and I will see you through this, too.  

All will be well, dear one. You are safely in My arms and all will be well.

John 17:22-23 The Passion Translation:

“For the very glory You have given to me I have given them so that they will be joined together as one and experience the same unity that We enjoy. You live fully in Me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity, and the world will be convinced that You have sent Me, for they will see that you love each one of them with the same passionate love that You have for Me.”

January 24

I am here, and I hear your plea. Your timing is right on target and I will answer you.  

Know that I always answer, you just may not be expecting the answer I give you.

Faith and the trust it brings are two very important things in our relationship. Faith that believes no matter what, faith that doesn’t question My answers but humbly submits to My way, and trust that comes in from the full belief  and acceptance to My way.

There is no other God than Me, beloved one, and I have your back, your front, your sides, your head and your toes! I created those toes. Every one of them is important to Me!

The road I have you on is your personal road to faith and trust that will build an everlasting bridge to Me. This bridge will be strong enough for others to walk on towards Me.

Have faith and trust in Me and the walk I have you on. Hang on firmly to Me as I am your Lifeline, now and forever.

Hebrews 10:22-23 The Passion Translation:

“We come closer to God and approach Him with an open heart, fully convinced that nothing will keep us at a distance from Him. For our hearts have been sprinkled with blood to remove impurity, and we have been freed from an accusing conscience. Now we are clean, unstained, and presentable to God inside and out! So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps his promises!”

January 23

I will not pass you by. I will not forget you. You are in My path.

My path leads to you, not by you. You are in the road I am traveling on. You are the reason I am traveling on the road.

Do not think you are mistakenly where you are. I know exactly why you are there. I am not a God of mistakes.

You have made mistakes which put you on a different, more difficult path than I would have chosen, but because you are Mine, all paths have led to Me.

Some times the path seems long and dark, but keep going. I am not only at the end of the tunnel bathed in light and love, I am beside you through the darkest, most treacherous valleys.

Even though you get discouraged sometimes, I have you in My will. Keep walking, beloved one. I am ever beside you on your path because I love you so much. I will never let you walk alone.

Know it in your soul.

Psalms 23:4 The Passion Translation:

“Even when Your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for You already have! Your authority is my strength and my peace. The comfort of Your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for You are near.”

January 22

Be ever watchful today, dear one. Stay connected to Me as you go about your day. There are those who would have you fall, who work against Me by working against you.

Stay connected. You have My power at your disposal. Do not go through life seeming to be a helpless child. I have blessed you with strength and power you have not even tapped into yet.  

When you face your foes, or your difficulties, if you but ask, you can arm yourself with My full coat of armor, protecting you from anything that is cast in your direction.

As My child, you have the ability to be a valiant soldier, but when you come to Me, there are no pretenses. Fold yourself into My loving arms, the more helpless the better, and I will hold you snug and secure.

These are our special times together where you gather that strength to face the world. Come to Me now, before the day gets away from you and let Me don your mighty armor.

To the world you are a strong warrior. To Me, you are My beloved and precious child.

Ephesians 6:13 The Passion Translation:

“Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.”

January 21

Do not be scared, My dear one. I am beside you. The walls seem to be rising up around you but that is only because you have built them up in your mind.

I don’t see walls. I see character-forming situations around you, situations I am waiting for you to draw closer to Me from.

Use this time and these problems to take steps towards Me, letting Me gather you into My arms.  Learn to face them with total surrender to My will. Yes, with the passion that I have given you to conquer them, as well. A pure passion formed by total surrender to My will.

Do not sigh with the heaviness of the situation. I have it in My hands. Nothing is ever as bad as you imagine it to be because I am with you. 

I want you to grow to that level of trust. Lose the binders that keep your vision on the problems.  See everything around you that I have blessed you with. There is SO MUCH, beloved, so very, very much.

“Thus Far” you have come. “Thus far”, I will carry you through.

Romans 5:3-4 The Passion Translation:

“But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope.”
