Turn to Me, oh anxious one. Be not afraid. In the Light of My compassionate Presence, you can accomplish all things, be healed, and be strengthened for good works. I see what you are facing in the day ahead. You are ready for the tasks at hand. Don’t trip yourself up thinking it’s all up to you. Walk one step behind Me, allowing My lead to guide. Our love will rule as the better way.
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
You are My rock…at least, you can be when you decide to trust that this is how I made you to be. I can empower you to do so much more than you limit yourself in imagining. I gave you My Paraclete, who is in you and with you and ready to accomplish giant things in My name. Are you ready? Are you willing to open yourself to the possibilities of all I have in store for your life? Remember, you do not do any of this alone or on your own might. I equip you, daily, for mighty and for small things. All you need to do is say, “Yes, Lord”, and My kingdom can be built upon your rock of faith.
Stop fretting. I AM is with you- All powerful and All wonderful. I have designed a place for you. I Am here to catch you, to listen, and to hold you when you cry out. I have ahold of your right hand already and will lead you where to go just as I have done for My people from age to age. Try to enjoy this day, not worry about it. Invest a little trust in Me and what I can do.
I’ll give you all that you need to handle tough situations. While it may take extreme courage to walk through the door, remember that I’m the One opening it and accompanying you in, every step of the way. Look to Me for your confidence. If you need a protective stance, I’ll be the barrier to help deflect things that aim to hurt you. You can be peacefully present even among others who are engulfed in their own hostility. Hold My Hand tightly under the table. I’ll get you through.
You have strength and courage beyond that of many. It is your leadership I desire, and you are doing that. There is no need to doubt yourself. Lay your burdens and anxiety on Me. I will not break what I have begun, and I have already started a good work in you. You are pleasing in My sight! That is all that matters: not people’s judgement, criticism, or praise. My song in your heart is all you need. Take heart, for I am always with you.
On the inside you might feel scared or insecure, but I have insulated you with My protective arm. This same arm not only shields, it also lifts you up and moves your forward. Upheld by My strength, you will have what it takes to face uncomfortable situations competently. With Me on your side you can speak and act with confidence. I designed you to be capable, so go forth boldly today. Insecurity and fear will wash away with each step you take.
When utter truth comes at you, you may feel it choke in your throat or sting your eyes with tears. Facing the truth can be hard and scary. Admitting it and acknowledging it to others may seem too hard, making you “too vulnerable”, but remember I am with you in everything. I am the way, the truth, and the life. This means I’ll show you the way to live a truthful life. Together we can address whatever is holding you back. You don’t have to be so afraid or isolated in your thoughts and ways. I am a trustworthy God and companion in all things.
At times it can feel like there are dark forces all around you. I equip you for battles when you must face or contend with them. Sometimes it requires words and actions. Other times the mere act of prayer, – inviting the Light in, – is enough to make darkness retreat. Love overpowers and peace rules when it is for My purposes and Good outcomes. Call upon My protective power and the army of saints will be available to assist you. My armament may require a humble stance at times, too. Let peace reign in your heart toward all. Be slow to judge and quick to forgive FIRST. If I call you to further action beyond that, you will know. Choose love as your sword and faith as your shield.
Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved. Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.
