Do Not Shrink Back

     My child, know that I love you. No matter what man’s plans for you or actions toward you, know that I am in control. Just as I said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” So too you utter these words and your heart will change to compassion and give no place to hate or bitterness. Know, My love, that I have good plans for you. Man cannot thwart My purposes.

     Your heart is willing and obedient and this I will reward. Count it all joy, My love, to share in My sufferings. This suffering will produce a greater understanding of My heart for man even in his fallen state. I will raise you up at the appointed time to fulfill My purposes. Do not matter if it is for this or that job/task, but know that I use all things to work together for good to those who love Me, to those who are called for My purposes.

     Do not back down, but stand firm in My confidence, knowing that I will provide. You bless My heart at your confidence in Me. Now is not the time to fear or shrink back, but to stand firm in My promises. Bless Me at your reaction to all things.
