In My Strength

     I desire to deal bountifully with thee. Even as you desire to deal bountifully with your little ones and not only meet every need, but bless them with abundance and give them what would enliven and enthrall their hearts, so I deal with My beloveds.

     Dearest tender reed, you share My heart for the places I put you to stand. When they reject you, they reject Me and all I want to offer them through you. Every word spoken over you I desire to bring forth. Thank you for stilling yourself before Me and listening to My heart and speaking forth, “thus saith the Lord.”

     For each word you spoke, wrote, delivered, each prayer you offered, every moment you stood and believed and took rejection, humiliation, misunderstanding, and rebuke I was with you. You were willing to stand even past your own strength and learn to rely on mine in these things. This is how you are to walk, relying on My strength. Be at ease, My love, for I have more for you to do.
