JESUS CALLING - November 23
As you sit quietly in My Presence, let Me fill your heart and mind with thankfulness. This is the most direct way to achieve a thankful stance. If your mind needs a focal point, gaze at My Love poured out for you on the cross. Remember that nothing in heaven or on earth can separate you from that Love. This remembrance builds a foundation of gratitude in you, a foundation that circumstances cannot shake.
As you go through this day, look for tiny treasures strategically placed along the way. I lovingly go before you and plant little pleasures to brighten your day. Look carefully for them, and pluck them one by one. When you reach the end of the day, you will have gathered a lovely bouquet. Offer it up to Me with a grateful heart. Receive My Peace as you lie down to sleep, with thankful thoughts playing a lullaby in your mind.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:38-39 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety." ~ Psalms 4:7-8

EARTH'S FURIESIn the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Then you may ask why have you, My children, to have tribulation if I have overcome the world.
My overcoming was never, you know, for Myself, but for you, for My children. Each temptation, each difficulty, I overcame as it presented itself.
The powers of evil were strained to their utmost to devise means to break Me. They failed, but how they failed was known only to Me, and to My Father, who could read My undaunted spirit. The world, even My own followers, would see a Lost Cause. Reviled, spat upon, scourged, they would deem Me conquered. How could they know My Spirit was free, unbroken, unharmed?
And so, as I had come to show man God, I must show him God unconquered, unharmed, untouched by evil and its power. Man could not see My Spirit untouched, risen above these earth furies and hates, into the Secret Place of the Father. But man could see My Risen Body and learn by that, that even the last attempt of man had been powerless to touch Me.
Take heart from that, for you must share My tribulations. If evil is to leave you unchallenged you must be evil. If evil challenges you, if trials press sore, it is because you are on My side, and, as My friends, exposed to the hate of evil.
But be of good cheer. You walk with Me. I conquered evil at every point, though man could only see it proved beyond all doubt when I rose from the dead. And in My conquering Power you walk unharmed today.For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8

Wait upon Me.
Wait until My strength has filled your being, and you are no longer weak, petty, "misunderstood."
Rise above any fret as to how others may judge you. Leave Me to explain what I will of you and your actions.
Would you seek to follow a Christ Who had wasted His God-Power on fruitless explanations?
So with you. Leave Me to vindicate you, and to be your Advocate, or trust My silence in this as in all else.

COUNT THE COST
I gave My all for you, My love. I gave Myself and died on the cross for you. Your precious soul was worth it all. When I cried out to My Father in heaven to "forgive them, they know not what they have done," I meant you!
I know how life challenges you daily, and that sometimes it's hard to see My presence in your stress-filled days. But just think about this, My child: When you see Me face-to-face and the beautiful heavens I've passionately prepared for you, then you'll say without a doubt that it was worth the cost to live out your life for Me. My Kingdom is the one sure thing worth investing in.
Remember, My love, I placed you here by My divine plan, so before you commit to anything or anyone, count the cost-because you are priceless!
Your King who paid the price for you "The ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough."

JESUS CALLING - November 24THANKFULNESS takes the sting out of adversity. That is why I have instructed you to give thanks
for everything. There is an element of mystery in this transaction: You give Me thanks (regardless of
your feelings), and I give you Joy (regardless of your circumstances). This is a spiritual act of
obedience—at times, blind obedience. To people who don’t know Me intimately, it can seem
irrational and even impossible to thank Me for heartrending hardships. Nonetheless, those who obey
Me in this way are invariably blessed, even though difficulties may remain.
Thankfulness opens your heart to My Presence and your mind to My thoughts. You may still be in the
same place, with the same set of circumstances, but it is as if a light has been switched on, enabling
you to see from My perspective. It is this Light of My Presence that removes the sting from adversity.. . . always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
~ EPHESIANS 5 : 20Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever.
~ PSALM 118 : 1Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the light of Your presence, O LORD.
~ PSALM 89 : 15

SUFFER TO SAVE
Take each day’s happenings as work you can do for Me. In that Spirit a blessing will attend all you do. Offering your day’s service, thus to Me, you are sharing in My Life-work, and therefore helping Me to save My world.
You may not see it, but the power of vicarious sacrifice is redemptive beyond man’s power of understanding here on earth.And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

Remember that you live in Eternity, not time. Let there be no rush to do this or that.
It follows that for each task Eternity is yours.
How often, and how sadly, impotent haste has hindered, not hastened, the work of My Kingdom.
Live more quietly, bathed in the calm of Eternity. Feel this before you leave My Presence.
No fevered haste to work My Will. You must go forth in God’s Great Calm.
There was no haste in His Creative Plan. Do you not feel the Strength of Calmness that lies behind God’s work in Nature? Rest and know.

I WILL PROTECT YOU
I am your shield of protection. Many times you wonder where I am in the midst of the battle that rages around you. You feel abandoned on the battlefield. Don't be afraid and don't lose faith. I am here, and I am always victorious. I will protect you, but you must trust Me. Sometimes I will lead you to shelter for safety and restoration. Other times I will ask you to join Me on the front line in the heat of the battle. The truth is, I can kill any giant that threatens your life, but, just like David the shepherd boy, it's up to you to march forward, pick up the stones, and face your giant. I love to prove My strength when the odds are the greatest and hope is the smallest. I am truly your shelter and your deliverer - I will protect you no matter where you are.
Your King and your Protector"You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance." ~ Psalm 32:7

JESUS CALLING - November 25THANK ME FREQUENTLY as you journey through today. This practice makes it possible to pray
without ceasing, as the apostle Paul taught. If you are serious about learning to pray continually, the
best approach is to thank Me in every situation. These thankful prayers provide a solid foundation on
which you can build all your other prayers. Moreover, a grateful attitude makes it easier for you to
communicate with Me.
When your mind is occupied with thanking Me, you have no time for worrying or complaining. If you
practice thankfulness consistently, negative thought patterns will gradually grow weaker and weaker.
Draw near to Me with a grateful heart, and My Presence will fill you with Joy and Peace.
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing.In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
~ 1 THESSALONIANS 5 : 16 – 18 Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
~ JAMES 4 : 8May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

THE HEAVENLY BEGGARBehold, I stand at the door and knock. Revelation 3:20
Oh, ponder again these words and learn from them My great humility.
There is that gracious invitation, too, for those who yearn to realize a happiness, a rest, a satisfaction they have never found in the world and its pursuits. To them, the pleading answer to their quest is “Come to Me and I will give you rest.”
But to those who do not feel their need of Me, who obstinately reject Me, who shut the doors of their hearts so that I may not enter, to these I go, in tender, humble longing. Even when I find all closed, all barred, I stand a Beggar, knocking, knocking. The Heavenly Beggar in His Great Humility.
Never think of those who have shut you out, or forgotten you, that now they must wait, you have no need of them. No! remember that, the Heavenly Beggar, and learn of Me, humility.
Learn too the value of each man’s happiness, and peace and rest, to Me, his God; and learn, and learning, pray to copy the Divine Unrest until a soul finds rest and peace in Me.I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9

Walk in My Pastures. The eye will be rested and the spirit restored by the soft green of their verdure. The ear soothed and then enchanted by the sound of My Waters of Comfort.
No stones will impede your progress.
The soft haze over all will speak of unrevealed mysteries, while the wonder of life about you will tell of My ever-active, creative, and protective Power, and you will be filled with a content that will merge into a strange yearning for a spirit-oneness with Me.
Then — you will know I am there.

DON'T EVER COMPROMISE
In your weakness, I will keep you strong, My child. I am well aware of the many things in this life that war against your spirit and your soul. I know it feels like distractions and difficulties are sent daily to test your character and convictions. Remember, My love, this life is not a dress rehearsal. It's the real thing, and I'm training you through these tests to trust Me. I am preparing you today for your future life in heaven. So seek Me in prayer for My strength, and don't give in to temptation or compromise. They are like quicksand lying on your path to righteousness. Hold on to Me and My power within you, and I promise that you will make it through. When the wicked winds try to blow out the flame of your faith or try to cause you to compromise, stand on My truth.....I am your solid Rock, and you can conquer anything in My strength.
Your King and your Rock"Temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it." ~ 1 Cor 10:13

JESUS CALLING - November 26THIS IS THE DAY THAT I HAVE MADE! As you rejoice in this day of life, it will yield up to you
precious gifts and beneficial training. Walk with Me along the high road of thanksgiving, and you will
find all the delights I have made ready for you.
To protect your thankfulness, you must remember that you reside in a fallen world, where blessings
and sorrows intermingle freely. A constant focus on adversity defeats many Christians. They walk
through a day that is brimming with beauty and brightness, seeing only the grayness of their thoughts.
Neglecting the practice of giving thanks has darkened their minds. How precious are My children who
remember to thank Me at all times. They can walk through the darkest days with Joy in their hearts
because they know that the Light of My Presence is still shining on them. Rejoice in this day that I
have made, for I am your steadfast Companion.This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

The prophet realized the Truth of My later saying “He that hath ears to hear let him hear” which might be rendered “he that hath eyes to see let him see.”
The God who was to be born upon earth was not to be housed in a body so beautiful that men would follow and adore for the beauty of His Countenance.
No! He was to be as one whom the world would despise, but to the seeing eye, the Spirit that dwelt in that body should be so beautiful as to lack nothing. “Yet when we shall see Him, there is no Beauty that we should desire Him.”
Pray for the seeing eye, to see the Beauty of My Character, of My Spirit. Nay, more, as faith saw the Beauty of the Godhead in One who had no form or comeliness, so pray to have that faith to see the Beauty of My Love in My dealings with you, in My actions. Till, in what the world will distort into cruelty and harshness, you, with the eyes of faith, will see all that you could desire.
Know Me. Talk to Me. Let Me talk to you, so that I may make clear to your loving hearts what seems mysterious now and purposeless (“having no form nor comeliness.”)For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root
out of a dry ground … and when we shall see him, there is no
beauty that we should desire him. Isaiah 53:2

Walk in My Way.
My Way is that of doing, not only of accepting, the Father’s Will.
Submitting to that Will, however gladly you may do so, is not enough.
Your work and influence for Me are hindered if your life is not one of complete obedience. “By the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”
Where would your salvation have been had I faltered and wavered in MY task?
It was by the obedience of My earth-life I saved; and so must it be with you.

GROW WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
I know sometimes you wonder if your life has any real worth. But I assure you that I can use you to impact those around you. Just as I used Paul in prison I will use you wherever you are or whatever circumstance you are in. Let Me water you with My holy Word, and you will begin to bloom wherever you are planted. Come to Me in prayer and let Me empower you with My spirit. Even if you can't see the harvest of your hard work now, I promise that others will one day look back at the time you were in their lives and remember your acts of kindness, words of wisdom, and love for them. So for now, My valuable princess, let Me help you blossom in a world that is searching for the meaning of life.

JESUS CALLING - November 27
Let thankfulness rule in your heart. As you thank Me for blessings in your life, a marvelous thing happens. It is as if scales fall off your eyes, enabling you to see more and more of My glorious riches. With your eyes thus opened, you can help yourself to whatever you need from My treasure house. Each time you receive one of My golden gifts, let your thankfulness sing out praises to My Name. “Hallelujahs” are the language of heaven, and they can become the language of your heart.
A life of praise and thankfulness becomes a life filled with miracles. Instead of trying to be in control, you focus on Me and what I am doing. This is the power of praise: centering your entire being in Me. This is how I created you to live, for I made you in My own image. Enjoy abundant life by overflowing with praise and thankfulness."Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts… And be thankful.
—Colossians 3:15"Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized.
—Acts 9:18And again they shouted: “Hallelujah!…” The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: “Amen, Hallelujah!” Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all you His servants, you who fear Him, both small and great!” Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”
—Revelation 19:3–6Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.

Not our wills but Thine, O Lord.
Man has so misunderstood Me in this. I want no will laid grudgingly upon My Altar. I want you to desire and love My Will, because therein lies your happiness and Spirit-rest.
Whenever you feel that you cannot leave the choice to Me, then pray, not to be able to accept My Will, but to know and love Me more. With that knowledge, and the Love, will come the certainty that I know best, and that I want only the best for you and yours.
How little those know Me who think I wish to thwart them. How often I am answering their own prayers in the best and quickest way.

SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE
The path has been tried, every step has been planned with a view to your progress. Never test your work by what others can accomplish, or by what they leave undone. Yours to master the task I have set you. Go forward in My Strength and in the Spirit of Adventure.
Undreamed of heights can be attained in this way. Never question your capability. That has been for Me to decide. No experienced Leader would set a follower a task beyond his Power. Trust Me, your Leader.
The World would have been won for Me ere this had My followers been dauntless, inspired by their faith in Me. It is not humility to hesitate to do the great task I set. It is a lack of faith in Me.
To wait to feel strong is cowardly. My strength is provided for the task, but I do not provide it for the period of hesitancy before you begin.
How much of My Work goes undone through lack of faith. Again and again might it be said -- "He did not many mighty works through this follower's unbelief."

I want you to know to that no matter what you have done, there is never a wrong time to do the right thing. There is no choice wrong enough, there is no chain strong enough and there is no time that has passed far enough that can keep you from making things right in my sight. Now there may be those who refuse to allow you to make things right, but they are not the ones who forgive you...I am.
Yes, there will be consequences for bad choices you have made, but I am the God who rebuilds what is broken from the wreckage. Remember, you can't change what has happened but you can build a new beginning...one choice at a time. Today is a new day. My mercies are new every morning. Now pray and ask Me to show you how to make things right and we will work through this together-Father and daughter.

Rest in the deep assurance of My unfailing Love. Let your body, mind, and spirit relax in My Presence. Release into My care anything that is troubling you, so that you can focus your full attention on Me. Be awed by the vast dimensions of My Love for you: wider, longer, higher, and deeper than anything you know. Rejoice that this marvelous Love is yours forever!
The best response to this glorious gift is a life steeped in thankfulness. Every time you thank Me, you acknowledge that I am your Lord and Provider. This is the proper stance for a child of God: receiving with thanksgiving. Bring Me the sacrifice of gratitude, and watch to see how much I bless you.Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. —1 Peter 5:7I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. —Ephesians 3:16–19Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.

THE WAY OF THE SPIRITJesus, we come to Thee with Joy.
The Joy of meeting Me should more and more fill your lives. It will. Your lives must first of all be narrowed down, more and more, into an inner circle of life with Me, and then, as that friendship becomes more and more engrossing, more and more binding, then gradually, the circle of your interests will widen.
For the present do not think of it as a narrow life. I have My Purpose, My Loving Purpose, in cutting you away from other work and interests, for the time.
To work from large interests and a desire for great activities and world movements, to the inner circle life with Me, is really the wrong way. That is why so often, when, through all these activities and interests, a soul finds Me, I have to begin our Friendship by cutting away the ties that bind it to the outer and wider circle. When it has gained strength and learned its lesson in the inner circle, it can then widen its life, working this time from within out, taking then to each contact, each friendship, the inner circle influence.
And this is to be your way of life.
This is the way of the Spirit. Man so often misunderstands this.Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:17

You will experience Me in a whole new way when you choose to love Me with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind.
I will no longer seem invisible to you when you seek to make Me visible to others. Take time to connect your heart to Mine in song, in prayer, in praise and in word and deed. When you live fully to gain My attention you will find My adoration is enough for you. The beauty that comes from this is that no one will be able to come between us again. Now My love, ask Me and I will show you I truly am all you'll ever need!

Do not be surprised by the fiery attacks on your mind. When you struggle to find Me and to live in My Peace, don’t let discouragement set in. You are engaged in massive warfare, spiritually speaking. The evil one abhors your closeness to Me, and his demonic underlings are determined to destroy our intimacy. When you find yourself in the thick of battle, call upon My Name: “Jesus, help me!” At that instant, the battle becomes Mine; your role is simply to trust Me as I fight for you.
My Name, properly used, has unlimited Power to bless and protect. At the end of time, every knee will bow (in heaven, on earth, and under the earth when My Name is proclaimed. People who have used “Jesus” as a shoddy swear word will fall down in terror on that awesome day. But all those who have drawn near Me through trustingly uttering My Name will be filled with inexpressible and glorious Joy. This is your great hope, as you await My return.For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
—Ephesians 6:12Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.

Remember what I have so often told you, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now." Only step by step, and stage by stage, can you proceed, in your journey upward.
The one thing to be sure of is that it is a journey with Me. There does come a Joy known to those who suffer with Me. But that is not the result of the suffering, but the result of the close intimacy with Me, to which suffering drove you."But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day."

YOUR FAITH CONFIRMED"Whom do men say that I am?" That is the first question I put to each man. My Claim, and the world's interpretation of My Mission and its culmination must be a matter of consideration.
Then comes My second question, and upon the answer to this depends the man's whole future. Here we have left the realm of the mind. Conviction must be of the heart. "Whom do you say that I am?""Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God," was Simon's answer. Then, and not till then, was it possible, without infringement of man's right of Free Will, to add to that profession of faith, the confirmation of My Father, "This is My Beloved Son."
I had lived My Life naturally, as a man among men. But always with the Longing that those I had chosen might have the eyes to see, the faith to penetrate the Mystery of Incarnation, and to see Me, the God revealed.
The faith of a personal conviction is always cemented by the assurance of My Father. It is that which makes the faith of My true followers so unshakable.

Wait on Me. My timing is always perfect. I know you're anxious about many things, and I see your passion for all the plans I have put in your heart. I know that you long to fly, and I see your enthusiasm. However, just as a vinedresser nurtures the vine and waits patiently for the right moment to harvest the grapes, so too am I working tirelessly to prepare you to bear much fruit. Don't run ahead of Me or try to fly before My plans are complete. Your strength will faith you, and your dreams will wither away. Trust Me that My dreams for you are far greater than you can dream on your own. You will run farther and soar higher if you will patiently wait for the season of My blessing. Draw close to Me now, and I promise that this season of waiting will bring you the sweetest of rewards.
Your King and Lord of perfect times"But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." ~ Isaiah 40:31

Learn to live from a place of resting in Me. Since I—the Prince of Peace—am both with and within you, you can choose to live from this peaceful place of union with Me. This enables you to stay calm in the midst of stressful situations, by re-centering yourself in Me. We can deal with your problems together—you and I—so there is no need to panic. However, the more difficult your circumstances, the more tempting it is for you to shift into high gear and forget My peaceful Presence.
As soon as you realize you have wandered from your place of Peace, return to Me immediately. Call upon My Name, for this reconnects you with Me and helps you feel safe. Don’t be discouraged by how often you wander from Me. You are endeavoring to form a new habit, and this takes time plus persistent effort. The rewards, though, are well worth your efforts. The more you return to Me—to our resting place—the more peaceful and joyful your life will be.For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
—Isaiah 9:6I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

That it sees nothing contemptible in One despised by the world. That it recognizes the vast difference between the values of Heaven, and those of the world. Fame and acclamations are accorded to earth's great, contempt and rejection to the Son of God.
One of the things My disciples must ever seek to do is to set aside the valuation of the world, and judge only according to the values of Heaven. These are not for you. Do not seek the praise and the notice of men. You follow a despised Christ. See the mob is hooting, throwing stones, jeering, and yet in that quiet little throng there is a happiness and Joy the reviling crowds could never know.
Follow that little throng with stones and gibes, and it appears to be of men, mean, ludicrous, contemptible. Be one of the throng, and you feel the Majesty of God in the presence of Him, Who was despised and rejected of men. Wreaths around His Brow, and shouts of applause, would belittle that Majesty.
In your dark hours, when human help fails, keep very close to the Man of Sorrows. Feel My Hand of Love press yours in silent but complete understanding. I, too, was acquainted with grief. No heart can ache without My heart aching too. "He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.""Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world....For all that is in the world,...is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:15-16

It is not in the crowd that lovers learn to know and cherish each other. Is in the quiet times alone.
So with My own and Me. It is in the tender alone-times that they learn all that I can be to each.
Shut out the world with its all too-insistent claims. Then, because of the power and the peace and the joy that come to you, you will crave to be alone with Me.

MY CHOSEN ONE
I chose you before the foundation of the earth to be My princess. You are royalty even when you don't feel like a princess. I will wait for you until you are ready to start living the amazing plans I have for you. I know you don't know where to begin or how to become what I've called you to be, so let Me teach you day by day. Start be recognizing Who I am: King of kings and Lord of lords. The Lover of your soul. When the two of us meet alone together every day, I will show you how to let go of the things in your life that are holding you back from blessings I want to give you.
Remember, My child, just as I have chosen you, I have given you a choice to represent Me to the world. If you are willing, I am here to give you all you need to complete your calling.
Your King and Lord Who chose you"You didn't choose Me, I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using My Name" - John 15:16

Let My Presence override everything you experience. Like a luminous veil of Light, I hover over you and everything around you. I am training you to stay conscious of Me in each situation you encounter.
When the patriarch Jacob ran away from his enraged brother, he went to sleep on a stone pillow in a land that seemed desolate. But after dreaming about heaven and angels and promises of My Presence, he awoke and exclaimed: “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” His discovery was not only for him but for all who seek Me. Whenever you feel distant from Me, say: “Surely the Lord is in this place!” Then, ask Me to give you awareness of My Presence. This is a prayer that I delight to answer.In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.
—Psalm 31:20When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”

LAW OF SUPPLY
The first law of giving is of the spirit world. Give to all you meet, or whose lives touch yours, of your prayers, your time, yourselves, your love, your thought. You must practice this giving first.
Then give of this world's goods and money, as you have them given to you. To give money and material things, without having first made the habit daily, hourly, ever increasingly, of giving on the highest plane, is wrong.
Give, give, give all your best to all who need it.
Be great givers--great givers. Give as I said My Father in Heaven gives. He who makes His sun to shine on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Remember, as I have told you before, give according to need, never according to desert. In giving, with the thought of supplying a real need you must closely resemble that Father in Heaven, the Great Giver.
As you receive, you must supply the needs of those I bring to you. Not questioning, not limiting. Their nearness to you, their relationship, must never count. Only their need is to guide you. Pray to become great givers."Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away." Matthew 5:43

Obey My Will, that is God's Will, for My MEAT was ever to do the Will of Him that sent Me. Obeying that Will, making it yours, all you will must be granted.

YOU ARE MY PRECIOUS DAUGHTER
You are a daughter of the King, and not just any king. You are My daughter, and I am the God of all heaven and earth. I'm delighted with you! You are the apple of My eye. You are Daddy's girl. Your earthly father may love and adore you, but his love is not perfect, no matter how great - or small - it is. Only My love is perfect....because I am Love. I formed your body. I fashioned your mind and soul. I know your personality, and I understand your needs and desires. I see your heartaches and disappointments, and I love you passionately and patiently. My child, I bought you with a price so that we could have an intimate relationship together for all eternity. Soon we will see each other face-to-face - Father and daughter - you will experience the wonderful place I have prepared for you in paradise. Until then, fix your eyes on heaven, and walk closely with Me. You will know that - although I am God - My arms are not too big to hold you, My beloved daughter.

Stay ever so close to Me, and you will not deviate from the path I have prepared for you. This is the most efficient way to stay on track; it is also the most enjoyable way. Men tend to multiply duties in their observance of religion. This practice enables them to give Me money, time, and work without yielding up to Me what I desire the most--their hearts. Rules can be observed mechanically. Once they become habitual, they can be followed with minimal effort and almost no thought. These habit-forming rules provide a false sense of security lulling the soul into a comatose condition.
What I search for in My children is an awakened soul that thrills to the Joy of My Presence! I created mankind to glorify Me and enjoy Me forever. I provide the Joy; your part is to glorify Me by living close to Me.And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. ~ Deuteronomy 6:5And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men... ~ Colossians 3:23 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. ~ Psalms 16:11

EXPECT TEMPTATIONLord, give us Power to conquer temptation as Thou didst in the wilderness.
The very first step towards conquering temptation is to see it as temptation. To dissociate yourself from it.
Not to think of it as something resulting from your tiredness, or illness, or poverty, or nerve-strain, when you feel you might well excuse yourself for yielding, but first to realize very fully that when you have heard My voice ("the Heavens opened," as it were) and are going to fulfill your mission to work for Me and to draw souls to Me, you must expect a mighty onslaught from the evil one, who will endeavor with all his might to frustrate you, and to prevent your good work. Expect that.
Then when these little temptations, or big ones come, you will recognize them as planned by evil to thwart Me. Then for very love of Me you will conquer."And lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever." Matthew 6:13

Not to draw attention to yourself, but to live the kind of life that leads others to Me. Remember, it's your choices that will pave your way to life. I will not force you to do anything. I have given you a free will to walk with Me or to walk away from Me. I want you to know that you can put on your crown at any time and let people know that you belong to Me. You have a royal call on your life. I want you to remember that you wear the crown of everlasting life, and through you I will do abundantly more than you would ever dare to dream.

I AM WITH YOU IN ALL YOU DO, even in the most menial task. I am always aware of you, concerned with every detail of your life. Nothing escapes My notice - not even the number of hairs on your head. However, your awareness of My Presence falters and flickers; as a result, your life experience feels fragmented. When your focus is broad enough to include Me in your thoughts, you feel safe and complete. When your perception narrows so that problems or details fill your consciousness, you feel empty and incomplete.
Learn to look steadily at Me in all your moments and all your circumstances. Though the world is unstable and in flux, you can experience continuity through your uninterrupted awareness of My Presence. Fix your gaze on what is unseen, even as the visible world parades before your eyes. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. ~ Matthew 10:29 -31By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. ~ Hebrews 11:27 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:18

FOOD OF LIFE
I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
Those were My words to My Disciples in the early days of My Ministry. Later I was to lead them on to a fuller understanding of that Majestic Union of a soul with God in which strength, life, and food pass from One to the other.
Meat is to sustain the body. To do the Will of God is the very strength and support of Life. Feed on that Food.
Soul-starvation comes from the failing to do, and to delight in doing, My Will. How busy the world is in talking of bodies that are undernourished! What of the souls that are undernourished?
Make it indeed your meat to do My Will. Strength and Power will indeed come to you from that."Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work." John 4:34

Wherever you've gone My grace has followed you. Whatever you've done My blood has covered you. Come to Me today, and I will do more than repair the damage done....I will restore what was lost. Someday you will look back on this moment as the turning point that transformed you into the princess I called you to be. Now come to Me, and let's fall in love all over again.

Your needs and My riches are a perfect fit. I never meant for you to be self-sufficient. Instead, I designed you to need Me not only for daily bread but also for fulfillment of deep yearnings. I carefully crafted your longings and feelings of incompleteness to point you to Me. Therefore, do not try to bury or deny these feelings. Beware also of trying to pacify these longings with lesser gods: people, possessions, power.
Come to Me in all your neediness, with defenses down and with desire to be blessed. As you spend time in My Presence, your deepest longings are fulfilled. Rejoice in your neediness, which enables you to find intimate completion in Me. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:19

MY KINGDOMAnd greater works than these shall ye do, because I go unto My Father.
While I was on earth, to the great number of those with whom I came in contact, Mine was a lost cause. Even My disciples only believed, half-doubting, half-wondering. When they all forsook Me and fled it was not so much fear of My enemies as the certainty that My Mission, however beautiful they thought it, had failed.
In spite of all I had taught them, in spite of the revelation of the Last Supper, they had secretly felt sure that when the final moment came, and the hatred of the Pharisees was declared against Me I should sound some call to action, and that I should lead My many followers, and found My earthly kingdom. Even the disciples who had eyes to see My Spiritual Kingdom had thought material forces had proved too strong for Me.
But with My Resurrection came hope. Faith revived. They would remind each other of all I had said. They would have the assurance of My Divinity, Messiahship, the lack of which had hindered My work on earth, and they would have all My Power in the unseen - the Holy Spirit - to help them.
Remember, I came to found a Kingdom - the Kingdom. Those who lived in the Kingdom were to do the work -- greater works than I was able to do. Not a greater Power shown, not a greater Life lived, but, as men recognized My Godhead, opportunities for works in My Name would increase. My work on earth was to gather around Me the nucleus of My Kingdom, and to teach the Truths of My Kingdom to them. In those Truths they were to live and work."But now it is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the Resurrection of the dead."

Let Me lead you step by step through this day. If your primary focus is on Me, you can walk along

YOUR SEARCH REWARDEDLord, all men seek for the Thee.
All men seek for Me, but all men do not know what they want. They are seeking because they are dissatisfied without realizing that I am the object of their quest.
Count it your greatest joy to be the means, by your lives, sufferings, words, and love, to prove to the questing ones you know that their search would end when they saw Me.
Profit by My Example. I left My work — seemingly the greatest work — that of saving souls, to seek communion with My Father. Did I know perhaps that with many it was idle curiosity? Did I know that there must be no rush into the Kingdom, that the still small voice, not the shoutings of a mob, would alone persuade men I was the Son of God?
Why be surrounded by multitudes if the multitudes were not really desiring to learn from, and to follow, Me? Follow the Christ into the quiet places of prayer.“Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

I, the Creator of the universe, have deigned to co-create with you. Do not try to hurry this process. If you want to work with Me, you have to accept My time frame. Hurry is not in My nature. Abraham and Sarah had to wait many years for the fulfillment of My promise, a son. How their long wait intensified their enjoyment of this child! Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, perceiving as a real fact what is not revealed to the senses.For with Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light. ~ Psalms 36:9 And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age. ~ Genesis 21:1 -7Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ~ Hebrews 11:1

Because the world is in an abnormal, fallen condition, people tend to think that chance governs the

this way have overlooked one basic fact: the limitations of human understanding. What you know of
the world you inhabit is only the tip of the iceberg. Submerged beneath the surface of the visible
world are mysteries too vast for you to comprehend. If you could only see how close I am to you and
how constantly I work on your behalf, you would never again doubt that I am wonderfully caring for
you. This is why you must live by faith, not by sight; trusting in My mysterious, majestic Presence.We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good
to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 Then Job replied to the LORD :“I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted. You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.” ~ Job 42:1-3Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. ~ 1 Peter 5:7

CARE-FREEPerfect love casteth out fear.
Love and fear cannot dwell together. By their very natures they cannot exist side by side. Evil is powerful, and fear is one of evil’s most potent forces.
Therefore a weak vacillating love can be soon routed by fear, whereas a perfect Love, a trusting Love, is immediately the Conqueror, and fear, vanquished, flees in confusion.
But I am Love because God is Love, and I and the Father are one. So the only way to obtain this perfect Love, that dispels fear, is to have Me more and more in your lives. You can only banish fear by My Presence and My Name.
Fear of the future — Jesus will be with us.
Fear of poverty — Jesus will provide. (And so to all the temptations of fear.)
You must not allow fear to enter. Talk to Me. Think of Me. Talk of Me. Love Me. And that sense of My Power will so possess you that no fear can possess your mind. Be strong in this My Love.“And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall
give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy
fear, and from the hard bondage wherein
thou wast made to serve.” Isaiah 14:3

PROVE ME NOW
You have to prove Me. To come to Me walking upon the water. No sure, accustomed earth beneath you. But remember He to Whom you come is Son of God and Son of Man.
He knows your needs. He knows how difficult it must be for mortals to learn to live more and more a life that is not of the senses. To know that when I say “Come,” I asked no impossibility.
Seeing the waves Peter was afraid.
Refuse to look at the waves. Know that with your eyes on Me you can override all storms. It is not what happens that matters, but where your gaze is fixed.

TAKE COURAGE IN ME
You need never be afraid to stand up and do what is right, My child. I will always go ahead of you and prepare the way. I rescued Daniel from the mouth of the lions and delivered David from the hands of his enemies. Can you trust that I am strong enough to handle any situation? I truly want what is best for you. Take courage and walk in My strength, not your own. Face every situation head-on - armed with the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth, he armor or righteousness, and the shield of faith. You never need to turn your back and run - I will empower you and protect you. Just stand firm and pray, and watch your courage become contagious.
Your King and your Captain of courage"Be strong and courageous!
Do not be afraid of them!
The Lord your God will go
ahead of you. He will neither
fail you nor forsake you."

TAKE TIME TO BE HOLY. The word holy does not mean goody-goody; it means set apart for
sacred use. That is what these quiet moments in My Presence are accomplishing within you. As you
focus your mind and heart on Me, you are being transformed: re-created into the one I designed you to
be. This process requires blocks of time set aside for communion with Me.
The benefits of this practice are limitless. Emotional and physical healing are enhanced by your
soaking in the Light of My Presence. You experience a nearness to Me that strengthens your faith and
fills you with Peace. You open yourself up to receive the many blessings that I have prepared for you.
You become a cleansed temple of My Holy Spirit, who is able to do in and through you
immeasurably more than you ask or imagine. These are just some of the benefits of being still in My
Presence.". . . on the day He comes to be glorified in His holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This
includes you, because you believed our testimony to you." ~ 2 Thes 1:1 0"One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek Him in His temple." ~ Psalm 27:4"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
~ 1 Cor 6:19"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us." ~ Eph 3:20

Fullness of Joy. The Joy of Perpetual Guidance. The Joy of knowing that every detail of your lives is planned by Me, but planned with a wealth of tenderness and Love.
Wait for Guidance in every step. Wait to be shown My way. The thought of this loving leading should give you great Joy. All the responsibility of Life taken off your shoulders. All its business worry taken off your shoulders. It is indeed a Joy for you to feel so free and yet so planned for.
Oh! the wonder of this a God-guided life. To think anything impossible in such circumstances is to say it cannot be done by Me. To say that is surely a denial of Me.“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son.” ~ 1 John 1:3

THE NARROW WAY
You must obey My Will unhesitatingly if you would realize My Blessings. It is a straight and narrow way that leads into the Kingdom.
If man turns aside to follow his own will he may be in bypaths where My fruits of the Spirit do not grow, where My blessings are not outpoured.
You must remember that you have longed to help a world, the sorrows of which have eaten into your very souls. Do you not understand that I am answering your prayers?
The world is not always helped by the one who walks in sunlight on a flower-strewn path. Patient suffering, trials bravely borne, these show men a courage which could only be maintained by Help Divine.

I CAME TO SERVE YOU
Even when you don't feel valued, let Me remind you, My Princess, that I - your King - came to serve you; I also sustain your life, comfort your spirit, and provide what you need. You are so valuable that I even paid the ultimate price at the cross to ransom you, My child. I am able to take any failure or mistake you've made and miraculously use it for My glory. I am patient, kind, and merciful - I am Love. So now that you know your sins are forgiven, I am asking you to turn from who you were and become who I called you to be. Let Me help you. I am your Lord who loves you no matter what.
Your King who came for you"For even I, the Son of Man, came here not be served but to serve others, and to give My life as a ransom for many." ~ Matt 20:28

REST IN ME, MY CHILD, forgetting about the worries of the world. Focus on Me—Emmanuel—and
let My living Presence envelop you in Peace. Tune in to My eternal security, for I am the same
yesterday, today, and forever . If you live on the surface of life by focusing on ever-changing
phenomena, you will find yourself echoing the words of Solomon: “Meaningless! Meaningless!
Everything is meaningless!”
Living in collaboration with Me is the way to instill meaning into your days. Begin each day alone
with Me, so that you can experience the reality of My Presence. As you spend time with Me, the way
before you opens up step by step. Arise from the stillness of our communion, and gradually begin your
journey through the day. Hold My hand in deliberate dependence on Me, and I will smooth out the
path before you."Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." ~ Hebrews 13:8“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.
Everything is meaningless.”
~ Ecclesiaste 1:2
"In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.."

STORMSOur loving Lord, we thank Thee for Thy marvelous keeping power.
There is no miracle so wonderful as the miracle of a soul being kept by My Power. Forces of evil batter and storm, but are powerless. Tempests rage unavailingly.
It is like a cool garden with sweet flowers and bees and butterflies and trees and playing fountains set in the midst of a mighty roaring city. Try to see your lives as that.
Not only as calm and unmoved, but as breathing fragrance, expressing beauty. Expect storms. Know this — you cannot be united in your great friendship and bond to do My work, and in your great Love for Me, and not excite the envy, hatred, and malice of all whom you meet who are not on My side.
Where does the enemy attack? The fortress, the stronghold, not the desert waste.“Except the Lord to build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”
~ Psalm 127:1

SONGS OF REJOICING
You must pray about all you plan to meet. Pray that you may leave them the braver, better, and happier for having seen and talked with you.
Life is so serious, let nothing turn you from your desire to serve and help. Realize all you are able to accomplish in your moments of highest prayer and service, and then think that, were your desire as intense always what could you not accomplish?
Rejoice in Me. The Joy of the Lord must indeed be your strength. You must step aside, and wait until the Joy floods all your being if you wish to serve.
Let Joy keep your hearts and minds lifted above frets and cares. If you want the walls of the city to fall down, you must go round it with songs of rejoicing.

WALK THE ROAD TO LIFE
There will always be two roads before you, My love. The popular road is easy, its bumps worn smooth by the wandering crowds. This road appears safe simply because so man y have already ventured around its curves and shuffled down into its valleys. What the crowds don't understand is that this road is filled with regret and guilt, and it ultimately leads to death. This is the road that leads away from Me, your King. If you find yourself on the wrong path, don't lose heart - just cry out to Me and will find you. I won't join you on this destructive detour, but I will lead you back to the road that leads to life again - the road your feet were created to walk on. Throughout My Word you will find signposts that will give you wisdom and direction. So keep reading and walking, My princess, and you will begin to discover the real joy of the journey of life.
Your King and the Way, the Truth, and the Life."Be careful to obey all the commands I give you; show love to the Lord your God by walking in His Ways and clinging to Him." ~ Deut 11:22

YOUR LONGING FOR HEAVEN IS GOOD, because it is an extension of your yearning for Me. The Hope of heaven is meant to strengthen and encourage you, filling you with wondrous Joy. Many Christians have misunderstood this word hope, believing that it denotes wishful thinking. Nothing could be farther from the truth! As soon as I became your Savior, heaven became your ultimate destination. The phrase hope of heaven highlights the benefits you can enjoy even while remaining on earth. This hope keeps you spiritually alive during dark times of adversity; it brightens your path and heightens your awareness of My Presence. My desire is that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not Yet have, we wait for it patiently." ~ Romans 8:23-25"God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain."
~ Hebrews 6:18-20"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." ~ Romans 15:13

Learn that each day must be lived in My Power, and in the consciousness of My Presence, even if the thrill of Joy seems to be absent. Remember that if sometimes there seems a shadow on your lives IT is not the withdrawal of My Presence. It is My shadow as I stand between you and your foes.
Even with your nearest and dearest there are the quiet days. You do not doubt their Love because you do not hear their laughter, and feel a thrill the Joy at their nearness.
The quiet grey days are the days for duty. Work in the calm certainty that I am with you“That they should seek to the Lord….For in him we live,
and move, and have our being.” Acts 17:27, 28

EXCESS OF JOY
Your life is full of Joy. You realize now that though I was the Man of Sorrows in My deep Experience of life, yet companionship with Me means an excess of Joy such as nothing else can give.
Age may have its physical limitations, but, with the soul content to dwell with Me, age has no power to limit the thrill of Love, the ecstasy of Joy-giving Life.
Reflect this Joy that it may be seen by souls weary of life, chafing at its limitations, lonely and sad, as the door closes on so many activities. They will learn by this reflection something of the Joys that Eternal Life here and hereafter brings to those who know and love Me.

DRESS LIKE ROYALTY
I've called you to be royalty, My princess. You don't have to comform to the wardrobes of this world to feel good about yourself. Remember, what you wear initially defines what people think about you. I want your wardrobe to honor Me. You don't need to dress to get attention - I can make you more beautiful than any fashion designer because I specialize in internal and eternal makeovers. Your favor and beauty will radiate because you are a reflection of Me. Keep in mind that those who design clothes to expose your body do not love your soul like I do. My love, let your wardrobe reveal My spirit - not your flesh. So robe yourself today like the royalty you are.

I AM SPEAKING in the depths of your being. Be still, so that you can hear My voice. I speak in the
language of Love; My words fill you with Life and Peace, Joy and hope. I desire to talk with all of
My children, but many are too busy to listen. The “work ethic” has them tied up in knots. They submit
wholeheartedly to this taskmaster, wondering why they feel so distant from Me.
Living close to Me requires making Me your First Love — your highest priority. As you seek My
Presence above all else, you experience Peace and Joy in full measure. I also am blessed when you
make Me first in your life. While you journey through life in My Presence, My Glory brightens the
world around you."The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue,
to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
wakens my ear to listen like one being taught."
~ Isaiah 50:4"Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love."
~ Revelation 2:4"See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the LORD rises upon you
and His glory appears over you."

WHAT JOY IS THISLord, give us Thy Joy, that Joy that no man, no poverty, no circumstances, no conditions can take from us.
You shall have My Joy. But Life just now for you is a march — a toilsome march. . . .The Joy will come, but for the moment do not think of that, think simply of the march. Joy is the reward. . . .
Between My Promise of the Gift of Joy to My disciples and their realization of that Joy came sense of failure, disappointment, denial, desertion, hopelessness, then hope, waiting, and courage in the face of danger.
Joy is the reward of patiently seeing Me in the dull dark days, of trusting when you cannot see. . . .Joy is as it were your heart’s response to My smile of recognition of your faithfulness. . . .
Stop thinking your lives are all wrong if you do not feel it. . . . Remember you may not yet be joyous, but you are brave, and courage and unselfish thought for others are as sure signs of true discipleship as Joy.“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
in believing, that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Poor indeed is the life that does not know the riches of the Kingdom. A life that has to depend on the excitement of the senses, that does not know, and could not realize, that delight, Joy, expectation, wonder, and satisfaction can be truly obtained only in the Spirit.
Live to bring men to the realization of all they can find in Me. I, Who change not, can supply the soul of man with Joys and delights so varied as to bring ever changing scenes of beauty before him.
I am truly the same, yesterday, today, and forever; but man, changing as he is led nearer and nearer to the realization of all I can mean to him, sees in Me new wonders daily. There can be no lack of glad adventure in a life lived with Me.

DO NOT FEAR
Are you bound up in darkness and fear? Come to Me and tell Me what you're afraid of. Is it the future? your health? your circumstances? your finances? your security? Don't you know that I am Creator and King of all? I own all the resources in the universe. Nothing is beyond My knowledge or My power. Remember that I am your God and Salvation. I will never give you more than you can handle. Ask Me about anything with faith and obey what I tell you to do, and you will feel your fear vanish. I am the Lord your god, and I delight in caring for you, My child. So do not fear, My princess. I am always near.
Your King and your Fearless Leader"The Lord is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The Lord protects me from danger - so why should I tremble?"
