My children have heard my voice and responded in kind. There is not anything I would not do for them. Their joyous songs have reached my ears and I love them with an everlasting love. I am enthroned upon your praises and my heart longs to be with you, surround you, and dwell richly with you.
What sorrow awaits those who run far from me, who have no desire in their hearts to connect with me or be one with me. Consecrate yourselves before me and come to me in repentance and I will cleanse you and forgive you and make you mine. Your choice to flee from me is yours and yours alone and this decision is upon your own head. What awaits you is never desirable and my heart breaks for you; that you would choose evil instead. My desire is to be with you not be separated eternally from you. My love is for you, though you run from me instead.
Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden with burdens of life. Lay your burdens at my feet and I will take them and make your hearts much lighter. I will fill you with hope eternal. I will reach down and pull you back up to where you need to be – up here with me in the heavenlies. This is my perspective that you need for each day, where you can see your situation far above and see things like me. Correction to your vision is needed each day, so study my Word, see me for who I am, and stay connected to me. This is your key to success in seeing like me and being one with me.
Command my angels to come to you today and break down strongholds that have been built up to come against you with a mighty force. Break down their towers of witchcraft and smash them to the ground. Let nothing remain that would be brought against you. I want nothing to remain hidden, but everything brought to light and smashed to bits so that it would not hinder you ever again. See the stronghold, break it down, and command it be broken and fall to the ground – never to rise again. There is much work to be done, but when you command it to be done in Jesus’ name, you have all the authority you need.
Stand by me when all others turn away. Stand true to what I’ve spoken to your heart. Stand with me even if no one else is with you, for I am with you standing by your side. It’s important to keep your eyes on me and keep your mind in my Word to keep you purely focused on me and my ways. This is something you never want to stray away from. Keep your blinders on like a horse, to keep your central focus on me. Ask me for all of your needs and I will provide you for all that you need.
John 10:25-30 The Passion Translation
25 Jesus answered them, “I have told you the truth already and you did not believe me. The proof of who I am is revealed by all the miracles that I do in the name of my Father. 26 Yet, you stubbornly refuse to follow me, because you are not my sheep. As I’ve told you before: 27 My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me. 28 I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands. 29 My Father, who has given them to me as his gift, is the mightiest of all, and no one has the power to snatch them from my Father’s care. 30 The Father and I are one.”

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 The Passion Translation
3–4 For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.[a]
- 10:3–4 Or “strongholds.” The Aramaic word for strongholds can also be translated “rebellious castles.” Paul seems to be referring to demonic strongholds or centers of opposition to the light of the gospel.
