The Father’s Business

     I have said in My timing I will suddenly move on your behalf.  It is only suddenly in your view, My love, for I have planned and orchestrated since the foundations of the earth. Even as I proclaimed My coming to earth and such a great salvation to overtake the sins of man and provide a way to the Father, so to My words spoken to you, the promises I have sang over you and how I will use you, I will bring forth suddenly.

     Rejoice, for I rejoice over you. I rejoice even in your next steps.  I tell you the truth, it is I who have brought you here for such a time as this.  I will give you wisdom and knowledge into all that concerns you so that you might shed light on the darkness and clarify understanding, do I not know the workings of all things?

     I will give you all you need to fulfill My purposes. Do not bear this burden, only let Me flow through you, strengthen you to stand, and let My beauty radiate through even your vessel.  Do not fear, do not be overwhelmed, ask Me what you need and I will give it.

     Uplift all those I send you to, for they are desperate for Me, for My method of flowing through them.  Speak peace to them do not judge, for they are weary and do not even know the next steps. Protect them and cover them with My love, with My beauty, with My grace. Show them My love and power even through even the tedious tasks. I will cause even these to multiply and feed others. Even in the completing of this, the working through of it, show them My ways.

I Peter 1:3-25

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.

Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All people are like grass,  and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.
