"Listen To Me To Live Securely, And You Will Be At Ease From The Dread Of The Evil One..."
Allow Me To Tailor Make Your Plan.
Most times, people have their lives figured out and they know the direction they want to take, you may have gone to that school, gotten that career, and have your whole life ahead of you. At these times, you praise me and you view it as a favor in your life. There are paths that, however, seem bright and successful, they may lead you very far from my will, and they may keep you with undefined behavior. So when things seem to take a different course, that may be difficult to understand, know that I am shifting you to a place of being more of who you are. With the experiences, I bring in your life, let them teach you because they are intentionally made to draw you closer to a particular destiny. Even in this season of being tuned to your purpose, choose to be still and know that I am God, and let that give you the patience to allow my plans unfold for you, in a way that you will be happy and satisfied throughout life.
My child, how long can you go without a source of income? If you didn’t have a consistent job for a few months or a year would you still be able to trust that I am working everything together for your good? You may feel let down immediately when you lack or you struggle, and you may be quick to think I don’t know what you want but I know you do not look for small plans. With this big venture that you want me to set up in your life, you have to be prepared to pay the price, which is to trust me, and that too will come through the refinement of your character.
My dear one, all that happens to you is working for your good since you love me, but you have to agree to fit into my plans. I know what will work for you and what won’t, and I want to tailor-make what best fits you, trust the process, and do not lean on your own understanding. You do not have to live as everyone else does, while we can make a wonderful purposeful life out of your situation.
I Will Protect You From Shame.
My child, how often do you make bad choices? those that you make out of fear. A choice in which you willfully disregard and disobey me? It may have been a choice that left you ashamed, broken and humiliated. I know you have struggled with guilt and shame, because of some of the choices you have made, which you didn’t count how devastating or far-reaching that sinful choice may have taken you.
I cover you from shame and still pursue you in your sin, mercifully and graciously covering you from blame. Even though you may feel some consequences of these sins, my love for you will still never fail. Do not forget that I love you even at your worst. Why would you think that I am willing to throw you away when you fail me? That would be conditional love. Do not suffer in the isolation of shame or be trapped in your fear of rejection or condemnation. I am your good guardian, always near to you. Molding, reshaping, and transforming you into a treasured new creation.
