In your areas of weakness, I am strong. In your flaws, I am present to help guide you onto higher ground, with sure footing. The act of humbling yourself means that in areas where you do not have mastery or self-control, you can recognize the need for My help and choose to allow Me to work on your troubles with you. I help best if you posture yourself in such a way that submits to My will and My design for you, which is perfect. The with-God life requires a humble stance with daily acknowledgement of your need for Me. Being humble doesn’t mean beating yourself up or lacking in esteem. You can have confidence as you learn to lean on Me and live off of My Grace, given freely to you. I know you well and love you even with flaws and imperfections. Show your need for Me so that I can give you your daily bread, sufficient to meet all your needs.
Humble yourself before others today, offering up any ego-driven need to be “right” or “the smartest” or “on top of everything”. Sometimes backing down and letting others have their way can bring more peace than having everything turn out like you think it should. Trust Me in this, and let My hand take control of the moving parts in your life. I won’t steer you wrong. Let Goodness and positive intentions rule today, experiencing My love for you as well as for others in this way.
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.
You spend so many hours and minutes mulling over plans. You are a good planner, but today I ask you to be on the receiving end. Allow other’s ideas and decisions to take the lead. Walk along gently and humbly as a great travel companion today. Trust Me; I am yours and I am also theirs. I will show up everywhere you go, -taking care of you. I want to heal your obsessive tendencies of trying to map everything out. Let go a little more today and see how majestic and interesting life can be without all the planning ahead. I will be with you in the midst of it all.
I am not the kind of God who withholds anything from you ‘until you get it right’. Stop your self-imposed pressure to be so “on” all the time, striving for a perfection that is not demanded by Me. Thinking you have to be 100% giving, kind, and perfect all the time is not realistic,- nor is it part of My design. All I desire for you to choose is to love and be loved. This includes loving yourself enough to be okay with real emotions, examining them as they arise and releasing any concerns into My loving, capable hands. I will assist you in dealing with them. It’s good and reasonable to have some flaws. Choose love, -including self-love, – today.
Walk into this day knowing that I have the Master Plan. You may think you have it all mapped out, but if a change in direction comes along don’t fight or resist it. Accept it with open palms, receiving it as gift. Resist the tendency to become bothered or anxious when these twists and turns come about. Receive each moment and LOOK TO ME. These may be small reminders of My partnership and My walk with you. Use this as an opportunity to trust Me more, listening and releasing the tendency to want to control things instead of trusting My control over your life.
Life is complex. You must train yourself to stop and refocus often during the day. My guidance is always an available resource but you have to seek it. This may mean purposefully setting down misguided priorities and tasks. I want you to reach for higher things, – loftier goals and purposes. Some things hide in the form of humility and discreetness. Others may require bold action. My purpose may feel like a mystery but it is direct and guided when you open to My channel and flow designed for your life.
