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 have compassion on you. I see you as a sprout in the edge of the ocean trying to grow up under pounding waves. I have compassion on you. You are mine. I will scoop you up and carry you with me. I plan to plant you in a spacious place, where you can grow and become an Oak of Righteousness to display My splendor. I have compassion on you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Stand and see the deliverance I am bringing to you and be of good courage, for I am strengthening your heart. Don’t look to others or even to yourself, for I AM your saving strength. Be still and know that I AM God. The process of maturing will happen speedily as you let go of your own efforts and look only to Me. When you hear My voice, don’t harden your heart and resolve to solve your own problems. Don’t say “I think or I know” but rather, in all your ways, acknowledge Me, and I will direct your path.  I have compassion on you.

1 John 4:18 (AMPC)There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].

I see you come to Me in your desire for relief. I see you asking that I arrange your life to make you feel secure. You think you need these things to breathe, and you doubt Me. As you doubt me, you hold a tight fist and determine to do what needs doing! You then come to Me asking Me to give you energy and strength to do what you feel you have to do.  But I long for you to sit awhile with Me, to seek My heart for your day. I want you to spend time with me in a peace, knowing that I am good and believing that I can satisfy you. You don’t have a need for these things you so desperately seek. I want you to let me show you that I am enough. Be still and know Me. The things you say about me, are only true to you if they can be true for you in your pain.  I want you to come to know Me well enough to know that I am all you need.  You must believe that I Am and that I will reward you when you earnestly seek Me.

Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Release! Release! Release! Release your efforts to secure your position. Release your sacrificial service that you do to show yourself worthy of acceptance. You work to be needed for you fear being excluded. “Martha, Martha only one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.” Be still before Me and get to know Me. I have chosen you. I chose you in your sins, and I knew the plans I had for you, even then. I want you to release the responsibility of you, your house, your body-soul-spirit, your past-present-future, to Me, and receive My provisions. I have provided everything you need for a life of godliness. This provision comes through your knowledge of Me. Your salvation is in repentance and rest. In repentance and rest at My feet you receive the knowledge of Me. Receive today and believe and walk in faith for its out of faith, that you please Me.

2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything required for the life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.
