ocean life 7

I saw you slip off the rock and into the river’s current. I was behind you and pulled you back. I am stronger than the current. I placed your feet back upon the Rock and I have held them there so you can regain your strength. I have made provision for you and will continue to supply My grace.  You can know peace as you rest in My sovereignty. You can know safety as you come under the shadow of My wings. And you can do all things through My strength for My grace is sufficient for you. My grace is not a blanket that you pull up over your head, but it is the actual power to accomplish what you are unable to accomplish in your own ability. I have pulled you out of the water and placed your feet on the Rock. Now, I am calling you to stand up! Lift up a shout of praise, even in your distress, because you are being delivered from your enemies. You will see My goodness in the land of the living! Don’t despise your brokenness, because it is beautiful to Me. The religious spirit that seeps into My churches will tell you that broken is wrong, that broke is ugly, but this is an absolute lie! Broken is beautiful to Me. A broken and contrite spirit I don’t despise!  Standing in your brokenness is your testimony of Me, of My faithfulness. I love you. ~Jesus

Psalm 51:17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.’ therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

1 John 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
