Son, think carefully about who I am, and when you hear My voice – don’t harden your heart. Do not allow your heart to turn away from Me by refusing to do what I tell you. When you refuse to do what I ask, you will not remember all that I have done for you in the past, and you will grow fat by hoarding for yourself – all the blessings I give you.
When My children hoard they will become fearful, proud and stubborn; they give little to no attention to My Word. They are disobedient to Me when they turn their backs on My Word day to day, and then refuse to listen to My prophets that I have sent to warn them. They will never enter My place of rest, and then wonder why they feel the way they do and have the problems they have.
Son, My promise of entering My rest still stands, but My children must want it. They must understand that My Word is alive and powerful in their time, as it is for all time. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes your innermost thoughts and desires. When My children believe My words, confess their sins, and start to obey Me – they can come boldly to My throne of grace, and will receive My peace. When My children have My grace and peace, it will strengthen and help them live their lives.
Lord, we Your children need to get right with You, then stand up and shout that we are children of the King! We need to praise Your Holy Name all over this country; the One who is from everlasting to everlasting! You alone are God, and there is no other. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all. You have done what You promised; for You see every promise that You have made – all done and finished. You are true to Your everlasting Word. My security comes from this truth. Thank You Lord!
