sailboat painting (1 of 1)

I want you to turn away from what you can do for Me. I want you to turn to the understanding that I Am! I know you think that you know what’s best for you, and you fear surrendering to Me. You want to know and to understand, but, your rest comes from TRUSTING ME, even when you don’t know or understand. I know that those in your past, who were supposed to be FOR you, have disappointed you, but I am not those people. I am Your Creator. Your Heavenly Father. I know you are tired of waiting and have grown weary in the process. I am calling you today to be careful for nothing, but to bring your requests to Me, to trust Me with them. As you give Me your requests, I will give you peace that passes understanding. I am asking you to believe that I know what is best for you. I am the Maker of miracles and I allow you to see them only when you realize that it is not you making them. For you are human and I am supernatural. Be still and know that I am God.

Hebrews 10:35,36 Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great reward. For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.

Philippians 4:6,7 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Titus 3:5,6 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost: Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our savior.

rest boat with verse2

I set before you life today. I have given you the right and ability to choose. You have chosen many things thinking they are life. Your choices have been characters you have worn as if you were in a play. The first character, the one where you recognized that you are a sinner in need of My mercy, was your true face. But you admired other characters that seemed to have it together. So you put on the clothes of becoming Christ-like and began a search for new studies and new ways to praise Me. I saw you lifting your hands and waving them to get My attention. I was beside you wanting you to come into My embrace. You determined that you must serve Me to please Me.  You wearied yourself and became angry because serving Me didn’t satisfy you the way you thought it would. You thought ‘if only they would acknowledge what I am doing then it would be good.’ I do not need you to please Me. I want you to believe Me. This is your choice today: to try to please Me or to trust Me. Take the faith you have in your service and place it on My Son. His service was sufficient for you. Sit at His feet awhile today and thank Him for His gift. ~God

Romans 4:5 (AMPC)But to one who, not working, trusts (believes fully) in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God.)

Romans 4:5 (CEV) But you cannot make God accept you because of something you do. God accepts sinners only because they have faith in Him.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him. for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
