My children, I am here beside you. Draw near in spirit to Me. Shut out the distractions of the world. I am your Life, the very breath of your soul. Learn what it is to shut yourself in the secret place of your being, which is My secret place too.
True it is, I wait in many a heart, but so few retire into that inner place of the being to commune with Me. Wherever the soul is, I am. Man has rarely understood this. I am actually at the center of every man’s being, but, distracted with the things of the sense-life, he finds Me not.
Do you realize that I am telling you truths, revealing them, not repeating oft-told facts. Meditate on all I say. Ponder it. Not to draw your own conclusions, but to absorb Mine.
All down the ages, men have been too eager to say what they thought about My truth, and so doing, they have grievously erred. Hear Me. Talk to Me. Reflect Me. Do not say what you think about me. My words need none of man’s explanation. I can explain to each heart.
Make Me real, and leave Me to do My own work. To lead a soul to Me is one thing, to seek to stay with it to interpret mars the first great act. So would it be with human intercourse. How much more then, when it is a question of the soul, and Me, its Maker, and only real Spirit that understands it.
“In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness
and in confidence shall be your strength.” – Isaiah 30:15
Withdraw into the calm of communion with Me. Rest – rest, rest in that calm and Peace. Life knows no greater joy than you will find in converse and companionship with Me.
You are Mine. When the soul finds its home of rest in Me, then it is, that its real Life begins. Not in years, as man counts it, do we measure in My Kingdom.
We count only from his second birth, that new birth of which I spoke to Nicodemus when I said, “Ye must be born again.” We know no life but Eternal Life and when a man enters into that, then he lives.
And this is Life Eternal, to know God, My Father and Me, the Son sent by Him. So immature, so childish, so empty is all so-called living before that. I shower Love on you. Pass Love on.
Do not fear. To fear is as foolish as if a small child with a small coin, but a rich father, fretted about how rent and rates should be paid, and what he or she would do about it. Is this work Mine or not? You need to trust Me for everything.
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased
from his own works, as God did from his.” – Hebrews 4:9,10
Listen, listen, I am your Lord. Before me there is none other. Just trust Me in everything. Help is here all the time.
The difficult way is nearly over, but you have learnt in it lessons you could learn in no other way. “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Wrest from Me, by firm and simple trust and persistent prayer, the treasures of My Kingdom.
Such wonderful things are coming to you, Joy – Peace – Assurance – Security – Health – Happiness – Laughter.
Claim big, really big, things now. Remember, nothing is too big. Satisfy the longings of My Heart to give. Blessing, abundant blessing on you both now and always. Peace.
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and
mighty things, which thou knowest not.” – Jeremiah 33:3
I am here. Fear not. Can you really trust Me? I am a God of Power, as well as a Man of Love, so human, yet so divine.
Just trust. I cannot, and I will not, fail you. All is well. Courage.
Many are praying for you both.
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we
will remember the name of the Lord our God.” – Psalm 20:7
Your foolish little activities are valueless in themselves. Seemingly trivial or of seemingly great moment, all deeds are alike if directed by Me. Just cease to function except through Me.
I am your Lord, just obey Me as you would expect a faithful willing secretary to carry out your directions. Just have no choice but Mine, no will but Mine.
I am dependent on no one agency when I am your supply. Through many channels My help and material flow can come.
“I delight to do thy will, O my God.” – Psalm 40:8
Remember My Words to My disciples, “This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Can you tread the way I trod? Can you drink of My cup? “All is well.” Say always, “All is well.”
Long though the way may seem, there is not one inch too much. I, your Lord, am not only with you on the journey – I planned, and am planning, the journey.
There are Joys unspeakable in the way you go. Courage – courage – courage.
“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet
believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.” – 1 Peter 1:8
To me, your intimate Friend, all Power is given. It is given Me of My Father, and have not My intimate friends a right to ask it?
You cannot have a need I cannot supply. A flower or one thousand pounds, one is no more difficult than the other.
Your need is a spiritual need to carry on My work. All spiritual supply is fashioned from Love. The flower and the thousand pounds – both fashioned from Love to those who need it. Do you not see this?
I thought of you, a bud opened, you converted that into a cheer for one you love or a smile. That cheer meant increased health. Increased health means work for Me, and that means souls for Me.
And so it goes on, a constant supply, but only if the need is a spiritual one.
“Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth
not what his lord doeth; but I have called you friends.” – John 15:15
I am beside you to bless and help you. Waver not in your prayers. They shall be heard. All power is Mine. Say that to yourself often and steadily.
Say it until your heart sings with the Joy of the safety and power it means to you.
Say it until the very force of the utterance drives back, and puts to naught, all the evils against you.
Use it as a battle cry – “All power is given unto My Lord,” “All power is given unto My Friend,” “All power is given unto My Savior,” and then you pass on to victory.
“He ruleth by his power for ever.” – Psalm 66:7
I am here. Seek not to know the future. Mercifully I veil it from you.
Faith is too priceless a possession to be sacrificed in order to purchase knowledge. But Faith itself is based on a knowledge of Me.
So remember that this evening time is not to learn the future, not to receive revelation of the Unseen, but to gain an intimate knowledge of Me which will teach you all things and be the very foundation of your faith.
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” – 2 Peter 3:18
I am with you. Do not fear. Never doubt My Love and Power. Your heights of success will be won by the daily persistent doing of what I have said.
Daily, steady persistence. Like the wearing away of a stone by steady drops of water, so will your daily persistence wear away all the difficulties and gain success for you, and secure your help for others.
Never falter, go forward so boldly, so unafraid. I am beside you to help and strengthen you.
Wonders have unfolded. More still will unfold, beyond your dreams, beyond your hopes.
Say “All is well” to everything. All IS well.
“My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.” – Psalm 119:28
I am with you to guide you and help you. Unseen forces are controlling your destiny. Your petty fears are groundless.
What of a man walking through a glorious glade who fretted because ahead there lay a river and he might not be able to cross it, when all the time, that river was spanned by a bridge? And what if that man had a friend who knew the way – had planned it – and assured him that at no part of the journey would any unforeseen contingency arise, and that all was well?
So leave your foolish fears, and follow Me, your Guide, and determinedly refuse to consider the problems of tomorrow. My message to you is, trust, and wait.
“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt
go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” – Psalm 32:8
Rest in Me, quiet in My Love, strong in My Power. Think what it is to possess a Power greater than any earthly force. A sway greater and more far-reaching than that of any earthly king.
No invention, no electricity, no magnetism, no gold, could achieve one millionth part of all that you can achieve by the Power of My Spirit. Just think for one moment all that means.
Go forward. You are only beginning the new Life together. Joy, joy, joy.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Philippians 4:13
Faith and obedience will remove mountains, mountains of evil, mountains of difficulty.
But they must go hand in hand.
“Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.” -James 2:24
I reward your seeking with My Presence. Rejoice and be glad. I am your God. Courage and joy will conquer all troubles. First things first.
Seek Me, love Me, joy in Me. I am your Guide. No perils can affright you, no discipline exhaust you. Persevere. Can you hold on in My strength? I need you more than you need Me. Struggle through this time for My sake. Initiation precedes all real work and success for Me.
Are you ready to live a life apart? Apart with Me? In the world and yet apart with Me? Going forth from your secret times of communion to rescue and save?
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. –
Be calm, be true, be quiet. I watch over you.
Rest in My Love. Joy in the very Beauty of Holiness. You are Mine. Deliverance is here for you, but Thankfulness and Joy open the gates.
Try in all things to be very glad, very happy, very thankful. It is not to quiet resignation I give My blessings, but to joyful acceptance and anticipation.
Laughter is the outward expression of joy. That is why I urge upon you Love and Laughter.
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations.” – 2 Peter 2:9
I am your Lord, gracious and loving. Rest in My Love, walk in My ways. Each week is a week of progress, steady progress upward. You may not see it, but I do.
I judge not by outward appearances, I judge the heart, and I see in both your hearts one single desire, to do My Will. The simplest offering by a child brought or done with the one desire to give you pleasure, or to show you love, is it not more loved by you than the offerings of those who love you not?
So, though you may feel that your work has been spoiled and tarnished, I see it only as Love’s offering. Courage, My children.
When climbing a steep hill, a man is often more conscious of the weakness of his stumbling feet than of the view, the grandeur, or even of his upward progress.
Persevere, persevere. Love and laugh. Rejoice.
“The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward
appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7
