Fret not, My love. Let your trust in Me overtake your heart of fear. How easily your heart is entangled with the cares of this world. My love I’ve made you to love and pour out, not to worry and fret. Leave all to Me and do as I prompt. Let Me tender the hidden details. I love you, My child. Walk in newness and with a light step, for I Am.
Do you think I do not have it all? Know that I do. Whether awake or asleep, you are in Me. I see all that concerns you. My eye is not weary, My hands are not merciless, My arms are not too short to save. I orchestrate where you cannot see. I do what you cannot. Do what I prompt you to and leave the rest to Me. Watch what way I will make. Delight Me in your trust, your secured heart in Me. Were I to lead you in new ways, different paths, how needful this shaking of all that is familiar. In losing your life in Me you find it.
How solid and unflinching I’ve made you, though you do not see this even in yourself. I’ve made you with a heart to rest secure, with emotions that are in control, with a desire to be faithful to Me. When you are not walking in this way you feel out-of-sorts. You are not out-of-sorts, but you were created to be stable. Stable in word, deed, and character. How needful this is in your life and for those around you.
Others have seen you only in the natural and would even scoff that you could be stable in all your ways, but My love, I do not see in the natural but I speak of that which is true and bestowed from the supernatural. My redemption of you brings you back into order – all of you. Dwell with Me moment by moment and watch how My presence and the breath of My Spirit changes every fiber of your being into what I created you to be.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
II Corinthians 5:16-21
“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. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
