“Thus says the Lord: Keep justice, and do righteousness, for soon my salvation will come, and my deliverance be revealed.”
“As a baby must grow and mature in order to comprehend who he is as a person, and who his parents are as his nurturers, so must a believer grow and mature to know who he is as an offspring of my Spirit, and who I am as the nurturer of his being.
Babies are inclined to get into all kinds of predicaments as they search for knowledge of the world and of themselves. Only the devotion of the parent keeps them from harm – or rescues them from their position of danger.
As the child grows, the more he is able to comprehend the love and devotion of the parent, the more he can understand the parent’s actions – even the actions which are not to his liking, such as denial of some of the child’s desires, and discipline for wrong-doing – then the more he can accept these with calmness and a lack of rebellion. In understanding and cooperating with the parent, the child creates a climate – a relationship – which enhances his maturity and furthers his growth into the character that is pleasing to both the parent and himself. With such a character, providing the parent is wise and knowledgeable, the child has what he needs to cope with all conditions he will meet in his life.
Be a perceptive believer – a perceptive child of mine. I will teach you the wisdom and knowledge which will enable you to cope with all conditions you will meet. I will not do this all ahead of time, however. You must trust me to know what to reveal to you before you have need for it, and what to reveal in the urgency of the moment.
You can remove fear and doubt from your life by trusting me, by believing in me and believing the communications which I give to you. Assume that everything which comes to light in my message to you – my lesson which you are to learn for your own immediate or future benefit.
If you will start to base all of your decisions on the premise that I am your loving Father actively guiding you into maturity and growth which will move you closer and closer to developing character which is like my character, you will release the power of the Spirit in your life as I have intended, and as Jesus demonstrated.
Truly accept my forgiveness of all that you have done which was not perfect in your sight or mine – as you forgive your children. Do not thwart the power of the Spirit by blocking it with guilt, unbelief, laziness or apathy.
The Spirit is released as you remove the blockage of the channel into which It desires to flow. As a physician through surgery clears clogged arteries so that blood may flow freely to give vitality of live, so do I clear your spirit when you place yourself before me, allowing me to operate – even if it is painful for a time.
Only as you believe in me, only as you trust me, only as you obey me, will you be free from fear and doubt, and find peace and fulfillment – wherever you are, whatever the circumstances may be, and whatever you are called upon to do.
I beckon to you – to love you.
I teach you – because I love you.
I need you – because I love you.
If I, who created you, am in such a state, what position are you in? Think, pray, be alert: Learn who you are, why you are, and what you are. When you recognize yourself as a part of me – and our mutual dependence upon one another, you will open yourself to the free flow of the Spirit and the possibilities of the kingdom now within you.
In the realm of the kingdom:
There is no fear nor doubt.
There is Love.
There is Beauty.
There is Service.
There is Satisfaction.
There is Peace.
There is Joy.
There is Hope.
There is Harmony.
There is the Fulfillment of all the longings of the heart.
Is this the place where you desire to live? Allow me to take you there. Believe I can. Trust I shall. Test Me! I have used every available means of encouraging you to do so, for how can I prove myself unless you give me opportunity to do so?”
