Son, do I need anyone’s advice? Do I need instruction about what is good? Did someone teach Me what is right or show Me the path of justice? Then why is this new generation deaf to My Word; the Word I gave before the world began? Are they so ignorant that they don’t understand that I will judge the world? Everyone’s fame, and all they have done on their own will die out, but My Word stands forever.
Tell everyone who will listen; shout it from the mountaintops! Shout, and do not be afraid to tell them, “I AM is coming!” Tell My children I see all their troubles, and I haven’t ignored their rights. I AM the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. I never grow weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of My understanding. So when you become weak and exhausted, remember that those who trust in Me will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Son, you might feel like a grasshopper next to the so-called giants of your land, but do not rebel against Me to be afraid of them. For they are only helpless prey, and they have no real protection. They will suffer the consequences of their sins, and discover what it is like to have Me for an enemy.
Lord, what joy there is for anyone who has You as their LORD. They can pray to You, and You will answer. You will free them from all their fears, and they will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in You will lack no good thing. You are close to the brokenhearted, and will rescue those whose spirits are crushed. No one who takes refuge in You will be forgotten or condemned. Your words hold true forever, and we can trust in everything You have said.
