Newness I speak to you. New ways to experience Me, new manifestations of My power. New levels of intimacy with Me. New understanding of My love. You will face all circumstances/situations with courage and hope, not fear and frustration. Portray this newness.
I have refined your character and readied you to serve in this role. Serve in this as unto Me. I will bless all that you touch, for it is I who have promoted you to this position. Get rid of any vain conceit, pettiness, speculation, gossip, and slander. Let your speech be sweet to Me, for I am listening to you My child, My beloved.
You have found favor with Me. Even as Ruth found favor with Boaz and Ester found favor with the King, so you too have found favor with Me and you will see men’s hearts change toward you because of this. I will direct the king’s heart wherever I please to promote you and use you as I desire, for you are willing.
When the naysayers come, have compassion on them, do not take offense, for they do not understand this favor. Walk in My blessing gracefully and bestow My grace on others. Do not judge them, for they struggle too. Only I know their hearts and the depth of their struggle. I see the secret places and I have compassion on them, so too should you.
Rejoice, for I walk with you and My eye is on you. Rejoice, for I do not desire to bring trials but I will use these to refine you even more and build you up. Rejoice I say, for I am your very great reward. I see where we are going and it is a very good land.
Ask Me and I will accomplish what you desire, for you ask not out of a selfish heart but a heart of compassion. I will trust you not to ask for what is not My will, but to seek My heart and ask according to My will for our intimacy will be palatable. Walk with Me as one. I miss this type of intimacy with My children, but I will show them through you what can be and what I desire to have. I will show them through our relationship what I desire to have with My beloveds.
- “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” II Corinthians 5:16-19
