As I approached the end of my honeymoon, my Heavenly Father gently asked, “Did I erase the horror of the old one, Beloved? Did I erase the old one?” And I was touched beyond measure. As I rendered my answer, it was with my heart crying tears of joy and thanksgiving…
“Yes, You did, Abba!” I said. “Thank You so much for giving me another honeymoon and erasing the chaos of the old. I love You.”
“The old is no more, daughter,” He said softly. “There is only the JOY of the new thing I’ve brought into your life, for I Am Faithful, and I love you.”
Saints, there is NO ONE – and I mean no one – like our Beloved Abba, Who makes the old yield to the new and renews wellsprings of Hope in our lives. He will “undo” what has been done of old and bring His new and glorious riches into any life who allows it – for indeed, He is Faithful. Amen.
God’s not going to force His shield on you. If you’re fighting it, He’ll withdraw. He will wait until your heart is open to Him, but in the interim – o, forceful one – where is your shield?
YIELD TO OUR MASTER, and receive His blessings and benefits in protection for you. Learn to receive. For, if you take the reins, it’s all on you, and you don’t know what you’re doing! Without Him, no one does…
God will call you out of one life into another; rest assured. Be not dismayed if your emotions are suddenly calmed and so is your circumstance. Trusting in God always pays off.
The Lord looks on the condition of our hearts as it pertains to our emotional well-being far more than we realize. He knows that, if we are afraid or discouraged or discomfited, we will have a very hard time coming into His destiny for us. He does not want us ignorant or devoid of His trust. He does not want us focusing on the ways of this world, either.
Children, don’t be discouraged if “the world” doesn’t know your name.
Seek to “be known” by Heaven rather than earth. The God of all flesh never forgets, will always forgive, and His knowing of you will be proclaimed before all when you pass from death into new life.
Seek to be known by God.
Let Him bring you, joyously, from this life into another; His call on you won’t be misunderstood by those who have tasted life eternal, for He has called them, too. He will bring you out of Egypt into the Promised land; rest assured. Be not dismayed when you must get your house in order to leave behind the places which no longer hold your focus. Leave and be grateful for what He’s given you. Let the sunshine of God’s future rest upon your face. Don’t be afraid, dear children…
Trusting in God always pays off.
