IF YOU LEARN TO TRUST ME—really trust Me—with your whole being , then nothing can separate you from My peace. Everything you endure can be put to good use by allowing it to train you in trusting Me. This is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace through the very adversity that was meant to harm you. Joseph was a prime example of his divine reversal, declaring to his brothers: “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.
Do not fear what this day, or any day, may bring your way. Concentrate on trusting Me and on doing what needs to be done. Relax in My sovereignty, remembering that I go before you, as well as you with you, into each day. Fear no evil, for I can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You’ve been purified and completely cleansed from all unrighteousness. For that reason, walk forward with a mindset of complete freedom and liberty. Choose to have your way of walking be unhindered by those things which were washed by Me. Your vision is clear. Your slate has been wiped clean. Establish within yourself the frame of mind of following My truths and pursuing righteousness. Your clear vision leads to unhindered possibilities within My kingdom. Allow promises to be fulfilled beyond your comprehension. Your potential in and through Me is limitless.
Galatians 2:20 (NKJV) “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
COME TO ME for all that you need. Come into My Presence with thanksgiving, for thankfulness opens the door to My treasures. When you are thankful, you affirm the central truth that I am Good. I am Light , in whom there is no darkness at all. The assurance that I am entirely good meets your basic need for security. Your life is not subject to the whims of a sin-stained deity.
Relax in the knowledge that the One who controls your life is totally trustworthy. Come to Me with confident expectation. There is nothing you need that I cannot provide.
Psalm 95:2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
1 John 1:5 5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
DO NOT SEARCH FOR SECURITY in the world you inhabit. You tend to make mental check-lists of things you need to do in order to gain control of your life. If only you could check everything off your list, you could relax and be at peace. But the more you work to accomplish that goal, the more things crop up on your list. The harder you try, the more frustrated you become.
There is a better way to find security in this life. Instead of scrutinizing your checklist, focus your attention on My Presence with you. This continual contact with Me will keep you in My Peace. Moreover, I will help you sort out what is important and what is not, what needs to be done now and what does not. Fix your eyes not on what is seen (your circumstances), but on what is unseen (My Presence)
Isaiah 26:3 “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You
2 Corinthians 4:18 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.
