LIVING IN DEPENDENCE ON ME is the way to enjoy abundant life. You are learning to appreciate tough times, because they amplify your awareness of My Presence. Tasks that you used to dread are becoming rich opportunities to enjoy My closeness. When you feel tired, you remember that I am your Strength: you take pleasure in leaning on Me. I am pleased by your tendency to turn to Me more and more frequently , especially when you are alone.
When you are with other people, you often lose sight of My Presence. Your fear of displeasing people puts you in bondage to them, and they become your primary focus. When you realize this has happened, whisper My Name: this tiny act of trust brings Me to the forefront of your consciousness, where I belong. As you bask in the blessing of My nearness, My life can flow through you to others. This is abundant life!
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man brings a snare,
But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.
John 10:10 0 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
YOU ARE ON THE PATH of My choosing. There is no randomness about your life. Here and Now comprise the coordinates of your daily life. Most people let their moments slip through their fingers, half-lived. They avoid the present by worrying about the future or longing for a better time and place. They forget that they are creatures who are subject to the limitations of time and space. They forget their Creator, who walks with them only in the present.
Every moment is alive with My glorious Presence, to those whose hearts are intimately connected with Mine. As you give yourself more and more to a life of constant communion with me, you will find that you simply have not time for worry. Thus , you are freed to let My Spirit direct your steps , enabling you to walk along the path of Peace.
Luke 12:25-26 25 And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? 26 If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters?
Luke 1:79 To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
