I was sitting in my usual seat after breakfast, just looking out at the early morning stillness. The gum trees were standing still in the morning sun, the sky clear, promising a lovely day. In thanking God for His morning Glory, I realised also, that many, many parts of the world are in chaos, war, poverty, drought, flood and anarchy of many sorts. The pain in the lives of millions of innocent ones could have been avoided, but sadly the greed of others has not allowed that. And now some clouds have appeared. That earlier promise has made way for a change in the day. The promise is not forgotten, it has just been deferred. The sun will again shine in all its glory, on another day…….
And so, says God, My Son shall again shine in all His Glory. He awaits His time to return to the earth, to rule and to reign. I have promised it, and it is written, it shall happen. Jesus will return. My people must remain faithful and patient. They must not deviate off the path of righteousness. They must walk the straight line.
The enemy as always will try and divert you and trip you up. Keep your eyes open and always be alert. His ways are subtle, he cares not what pain he causes. He is filth, and he will lie to you, tell you not to worry about the little bit of leaven in your life. But I tell you, get rid of that leaven, it is death to your soul. Hang onto that little bit of leaven and you will pay a high price. How can you do the work of My Kingdom, if you hang onto the leaven? Get rid of it and so be wholly Mine.
Many of My Precious ones are going through trials and very hard times. You question My purposes in these trials. Yes, it has caused you pain, but I love you more than all the pain you have ever felt. I love you so much, that I am willing to risk that pain in your life, to bring you closer to Me. To purify you, to bring you closer and closer to Me, as never before. My children need to know, that no matter how distant you may think I am, I am in fact as close
as your next breath. I will NEVER leave you or forsake you. Your faith and trust in Me will bring immense reward and victory.
I am not a God who slaps you down and leaves you to get up by yourself. I am a God who in My love for you will hold you to Myself, who will soothe your pain and comfort you until you are strong enough to stand on your own. And even then, My outstretched hand is always there.
My love for My children, it cannot be measured. The deepest ocean, the highest mountain, the widest canyon, none of these can measure My love. I give it freely, I give it to you.
15 Hark, glad songs of victory in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the LORD does valiantly, 16 the right hand of the LORD is exalted, the right hand of the LORD does valiantly!” 17 I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the LORD. 18 The LORD has chastened me sorely, but he has not given me over to death. 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD; the righteous shall enter through it. 21 I thank thee that thou hast answered me and hast become my salvation.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed concerning the whole earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. 27 For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?
