Son, I know the plans I have for you. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and hope! So stay focused by forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead; for you are a citizen of heaven. I love you and long to walk the streets of heaven with you. Remember, I am coming soon, so don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell Me what you need, and be thankful for all I have done. Then you will experience My peace, which exceeds anything you can understand. My peace will guard your heart and mind as you live for Me.
Fix your thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise; then put these thoughts into practice. Then you will learn the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. Remember that you can do anything; for I will give you all the strength you will need. I will take care of you. I will supply all your needs from My storehouse of riches.
Son, tell My children, “If you look for the Lord wholeheartedly, you will find Him. But if you refuse to listen to the Lord, even though He has spoken to you repeatedly, He will discipline you with justice; for God cannot let rebellion go unpunished.” Tell them that whatever happens to rejoice in Me, and when they pray – I will listen. They must eagerly wait for My return, then I will take their weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like Mine! So My children stay true to Me! For I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home.
Lord, I know that Your strong right hand holds me securely, and I never get tired of telling everyone that You do. Help me to view everything this world has to offer as worthless garbage compared to the infinite value of knowing You my Lord. Help me to learn how to discard these worthless things so that I will have nothing stopping me from experiencing the mighty power that raised You from the dead. Help me to view suffering as a privilege, because then I will be able to understand what You suffered when You died for me.
