In You I Rest

Oh God, I sit before you, I quiet My day, still My hands, and wait before You for your life-giving and life-changing words. I lift My hands to you and worship You in spirit and truth – with all I am. I give My all to you: all weakness, strengths, passions, and thoughts. I offer Myself to You to use as You desire. I am Yours and You are mine. I come boldly before Your throne of grace for You are My righteousness, My desire, My beloved.

     I see each offering you make unto Me. I see each desire, hear each sigh, I know you My love and it honors Me and delights My heart that you still give your all to Me even when much loss surrounds you. Oh, so few will trust Me in both the land of plenty and want. These vessels who trust Me beyond their own strengths and desires are they whom I can refine and use for My higher purposes.

     Oh love, I will not disappoint. No eye has seen or heard what I have prepared for those who love Me. My riches are everlasting and limitless, come feast upon Me and let Me provide for you in all of your needs physically, mentally, spiritually, financially. Let contentment be the shroud you wear in all joy and peace for you know that I have you. No weapon forged against you will prosper, every tongue that rises up against you will cease.

     I Am your God. Do not forget this. Do not let your heart faint or be discouraged when all seems lost, when it looks as though the enemy has won and man has overcome you. I have overcome in this life and in eternity – just trust My methods, My ways, My heart.

And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”  Isaiah 54:16-17
  • “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:8-9
