I had sinned. I was ashamed. I spoke to the Lord and asked His forgiveness. I saw Him, in my mind, sitting. He was holding a tiny white lamb. I felt His love for the lamb. It was very dear to Him. Jesus was wearing a long white robe, not a fancy robe, more like a Shepherd’s robe. He had a crimson, blood red, sash around His neck. As I looked, I saw that the sash had a golden glow about it. He turned the lamb around with His hands so that he could see into His eyes and I knew at that moment that I was that lamb. He took off His sash and tied it around my neck. And I knew. I knew in my heart what it meant. I was forgiven, because He had died in my place. I saw the Lamb with joy  in his face wearing the scarf, as a banner of love.~ Me, a sinner saved.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for the wrong things we did. He was crushed for the evil things we did. The punishment, which made us well, was given to him. And we are healed because of his wounds.

Philippians 3:14        I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

              I see some running through circumstances and hurdles. They have the end in sight and they put all their effort into completing their goals. But when they reach those goals and navigate through their circumstances and over the hurdles, their world turns over and the race begins again. It is the same race with different circumstances and hurdles. But some of My children have learned that they will not reach the end on Earth’s side. They have their eyes set on the things above and are learning to pace themselves to run the race with perseverance. Instead of competing to earn earth’s rewards, they understand they are not of this world. They have developed a strategy of spending time with Me. Living for Me is their goal. They have learned to come and take the living water from Me, to sit in My Presence and allow Me to love them. I supply all of there needs as they seek first My Kingdom.  I set before you this choice again today. Choose life that you may live.

Philippians 3:7 But everything that was gain to me, I have considered loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord. 

Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I feel you demanding that I pick you up, demanding to feel My Presence. I see your anger and feel your frustrations.  I see you child. Walk confidently beside Me. I have not left you and I never will. I am teaching you to walk by faith, not by what you feel or think. But to trust Me and put one foot in front of the other. It is one thing to believe Me, and another to trust Me. Trusting Me is doing what you believe. Be at peace here beside Me and know that I will help you walk. There is a place of choice in every moment. In this place of choice, there are two teachers, one teacher is your human nature. This teacher teaches you to rely on your emotions, feelings and thoughts and will bring about loss and death. The other Teacher is My Spirit, who teaches you to rise above these emotions, feelings and thoughts and to live according to My will by the provision of My Spirit in you. Today I want you to make a conscious choice to walk in the Spirit and reject thoughts of depression, self pity and anger. When you feel these things confess them as part of your sinful nature and I will give you life and direction from My Spirit in their place and allow you to have peace.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

Zechariah 4:6  Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
