YOU CRY UNTO ME, “ABBA FATHER,” AND I ANSWER YOU AND GIVE YOU WHAT IS “BEST” FOR YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD! THE PROBLEM IS THAT MANY OF YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THE ONLY TRUE GOD AND SOURCE OF YOUR ETERNAL BEING. THIS IS A TIME OF THRESHING AND THE SEPARATION OF “GOOD AND EVIL” FROM THE SOULS OF MEN. “For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens, who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, who has established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited: ‘I am the LORD, and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, “Seek Me in vain;” I, the LORD, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right’” (ISA 45:18-19).
YOU, MY CHILDREN, FOOLISHLY CRY OUT IN FEAR AND BEWILDERMENT INSTEAD OF FAITH AND TRUST. YOU WANT ANSWERS AND YET IF I GAVE YOU THE BLUEPRINT OF YOUR FUTURE, YOU COULD NOT FULLY COMPREHEND WHAT I AM DOING. I AM WAGING WAR FOR THE SOULS OF MEN. “And He looked at them and said, ‘What then is this that is written: “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone?”’ Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder” (LUK 20:17-18).
MAN HAS BECOME HIS OWN GOD AND DEPENDENT ON THE WORLD FOR HIS PROVISION. THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN MY WORD THAT DECLARES: “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (ROM 8:5-6).
YOU WANT TO TRUST IN THE STRENGTH AND PROVISION OF GOVERNMENT, INSTITUTIONS, PEOPLE, AND THINGS AS YOU HAVE ALWAYS DONE. THERE IS ONLY “ONE” WHO YOU CAN TRUST. I AM PROVING TO YOU THAT I ALONE AM THE ONLY “ROCK” AND “FOUNDATION” ON WHICH YOU CAN BUILD YOUR LIFE AND FUTURE. I AM YOUR ONLY PLACE OF SAFETY. YOU CANNOT TRUST YOUR OWN WISDOM AND YOU CANNOT SET THE CALAMITIES AND SORROWS IN THE WORLD RIGHT IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH. MY WORD ALONE IS TRUTH AND MY SPIRIT DIRECTS YOU INTO ALL TRUTH AND BRINGS IT TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE. YOU ARE NOT MY CHILDREN UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN BORN OF MY SPIRIT. I AM CALLING EVERYONE TO TURN TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, MY SON, FOR ETERNAL LIFE AND THE RIGHT TO CALL ME “FATHER.” “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (HEB 4:16).
DO NOT ALLOW “REBELLION OR UNBELIEF” ROB YOU OF YOUR ETERNAL SOUL. For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief” (HEB 3:16-19).
THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT YOU THAT I DON’T KNOW. MY LOVE IS REACHING OUT TO YOU AND SAYING, “PEACE BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM YOUR SAVIOR.” WHEN YOU CALL OUT TO ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART, I WILL LEAD YOU TO GREEN PASTURES AND BY THE STILL WATERS. THROUGH YOUR SUFFERINGS AND TRIALS I AM YOUR CONSTANT COMPANION AND I WILL MAKE YOU EVERYTHING I HAVE CALLED YOU TO BE. IF YOU DESIRE SAFETY, YOU MUST FIRST BE IN MY HANDS, AND THEN NO ONE OR ANY THING CAN REMOVE YOU. ONLY IN THE LORD CAN YOU POSSESS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ONLY THROUGH MY STRENGTH CAN YOU STAND AGAINST THE ONSLAUGHT OF EVIL. “Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; the word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall take an oath. He shall say, ‘Surely in the LORD I have righteousness and strength. To Him men shall come, and all shall be ashamed who are incensed against Him’” (ISA 45:22-24).
MY WORD DECLARES: “Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him; but the just shall live by his faith” (HAB 2:4). MY CHILDREN, COME TO ME AND I WILL STRENGTHEN YOUR FAITH. I WILL MAKE YOU STAND WHILE THE WHOLE WORLD FALLS AROUND YOU. COME TO ME AND I WILL ENLARGE YOUR LOVE, FAITH AND TRUST IN ME. THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO IGNORE MY WORDS UNTO YOU. “For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: ‘For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my soul has no pleasure in him.’ But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul” (HEB 10:35-39).
Dear Lord, I see the works and results of sin all around me in the world, but I ask You to make my life flow with Your truth, wisdom, faith, and righteousness. Help me to be a solid rock in the time of storm. May I present Your truth in this time of deceit and lies. Help me exhibit overcoming faith in this hour of seeming defeat. Give me the strength to be an overcomer in all things. I love and trust in You. I find my strength in Your word. “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls — yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength; he will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills” (HAB 3:17-19). AMEN.
