Be careful to surrender daily to Me. I am in your surrender. As you release your own efforts and worries and learn to rely on My Strength you will come to know that I AM FOR YOU!  It is dangerous for you to operate in your own strength because your enemy prowls around like a lion seeking whom he may devour. But I am the Good Shepherd and have laid down My life to protect you. In your surrender you come under My protection. The blood I shed speaks over you. You are My sheep and know My voice. You will not recognize the voice of a stranger. Faith, hope and love remain, but the love speaks the loudest and it never fails. It is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast or insist on having its own way. This is how you will recognize who My children are, because everyone who loves is born of Me.  I AM FOR YOU and no weapon formed against you shall prosper and you will refute every tongue that rises against you. This is your heritage as My servant, your vindication from Me. After the shots are fired and the foundations laid bare, and you think you have won, the GREATEST battle begins. It is the battle to love and forgive and live again!

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past.

Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

torch

I will bring you through and you will praise My name. I will not leave you in darkness. My Spirit is oil for the light of My word. Take time to soak in My Spirit- for you are a burning wick. As you spend time in My Presence, your being becomes saturated with the Oil of My Spirit and are able to behold My Glory. I want you to be with Me. You are a testimony of My eternal faithfulness, a light in the darkness. I want you to pull your affections away from the things on earth and seek Me above all else. Set your mind on things above. The earth shall pass and the wars will cease. My enemies will be thrown into the lake of fire. But I have a glorious reception for My chosen ones.
