You are the one who I have gifted. You are the one who knows Me and carries My Spirit. I want you to realize that You are my gift to others. You have much to offer and are entirely valuable to Me. I have thought of You always. You are always on My mind. My eyes are always on you. I know your thoughts even before you think them.  I have watched you look to others to see what they can offer you. To see how they can make you better or more fulfilled. But you won’t find that in anyone, you are way beyond that. You were made for Me and I have given you abundantly of Myself.  I want you to change your perspective about others and begin to look at how you can share what I’ve put in you with them.  I want you to do this as you look to your friends and also My church. They will not fill you. They will never be able to do this because I intended you to come to Me for that.   I want you to surrender the idea of  “doing it your way..” Because I have plans to give you a hope and a future. Be still and know Me. Will you trust Me?

Colossians 2:9 For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ,  and you have been filled by Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

I am calling you to a deeper walk with Me. As the bonds that have bound you are broken, you will grieve. As the people who you have so trusted disappoint you in their human-ness, you will be broken-hearted and know sorrow. But I am maturing you and bringing you to a place where your dependence is only on Me. When people forsake you, know that I will take you up. And I will give you perfect love that casts out fear. And I will heal your broken heart. My redeemed will return and come with singing and everlasting joy shall be upon their head. They will have gladness and joy for sorrow and mourning will flee. I am Spirit and where My Spirit is there is freedom. As you look and contemplate on Me you will be transformed into My likeness with ever-increasing Glory.

2 Corinthians 3:17,18 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, this is from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Psalm 27:10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord cares for me.

Psalm 27:13-14 I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and courageous. Wait for the Lord.

Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.
