I will adorn you with My beauty, My giftings, My salvation. I will not abandon you. Those these who walked with you and even used your talents for their own gain have turned their backs on you. My love, I do not do this. I Am here with you.
You doubt and wonder, “How can it be different this time, they have delayed and thwarted your plans before. I don’t know what to believe. I am hurt and frustrated and weak in faith.” My love, do not reason your worth to Me at how others treat you. For your worth to Me is far above the treasures of the earth.
My love, walk with Me, dwell with Me, even in times of frustration and when attacked. I Am with you. I will bring you forth. Not one ounce of energy you expend as unto Me is a waste. For these are gold, silver, and precious stones and will last throughout eternity.
I use even these fires to refine you, but these will not burn or overtake you. I will make your way in My timing. You do not see what you pour out while you stand and wait for Me. You do not even see how you can bless those in your path and show them My light.
Come into My presence and your response to these situations and times will be different, for it is I who change you and expand your heart and strength. Be at ease, My love, for I have you. Ask Me for wisdom, and I will give it. Let Me be your comfort and your inspiration. Know your worth in Me.
- “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy timbrels, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.” Jeremiah 31:3-5
- “The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames. Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours,whether Paul or Apollos or Cephasor the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.” I Corinthians 3:8-23
