Son, Satan is the god of this world, and he has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. These people are unable to see My glorious light of the Good News. They have a veil that covers their minds, and it will not allow them to understand the truth. This veil can only be removed by believing in Me. So don’t fret because of evildoers, and don’t envy them. For these blinded people have no future, and I will pay them back for what they’ve done to My children!
Son, don’t look at the troubles you can see now; rather, fix your gaze on things that cannot be seen that are true and glorious. For the things you see now will soon be gone, but the things you cannot see will last forever. Though your body is dying, your spirit is being renewed every day by My word. Your present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for you a glory that vastly outweighs them all, and that glory will last forever!
So when you feel pressed on every side by these troubles, you will not be crushed. When you become perplexed, you will not be driven to despair. When you get knocked down, you will not be destroyed, and you will never be abandoned by Me. Your qualification comes from Me, and this should give you so much confidence that you can be very bold. With My Spirit there is freedom and mercy; so never give up. This is the truth, and all who are honest know this.
Son, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you. Pay close attention to him, and obey his instructions; which are from Me. If you obey Me, and follow all My instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you. You must serve only Me, and I will bless you with all that you need, and I will protect you from illness.
Therefore, don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich. Commit yourself to My instruction by listening carefully to My words of knowledge; it will keep your heart on the right course. Know the truth and never sell it, and it will make you wise, disciplined and give you good judgment. Remember, you will fail under pressure by relying on your own strength.
Lord, I must rely on Your great power, and not my own. I must continue to tell everyone, “Who You are.” I can never give up. I must tell of Your unfailing love. I will praise You for all You have done. I will rejoice in Your great goodness, and Your awesome deeds and promises that are beyond my highest expectations. For no ear has heard, and no eye has seen a God like You, who works for those who wait for Him!
