Remain close to me all throughout this day. Let me surround you in my love as you go about your day. Let me whisper my thoughts of love for you as you draw near to my heart. Let the things taking place all around you melt into thin air as you press your ear in to hear me clearer. Open your heart to me and let me come in. Let me do the cleansing of any sin within. Let there be nothing that stands in the way of communing with me, your YAHWEH.
Remain in a posture of hearing me and stay tuned to my heart. Many things will vie for your attention, but learn to discipline yourself to focus only on me. I can speak to you as you go about your day. I will fill your mind with the things you need to do and to say. Let me penetrate your thoughts with my words of love to express to others just how much they are loved.
Transgressions and confessions are what you bring to me. Lay them at my feet and let me take them away. My heart desires to see you free from any entanglement that keeps you far from me. Release your fears, your doubts, to me and let me set your mind at ease. Let nothing separate you from me and let us be one, to enable you to see.
The days ahead will make it difficult to see, so practice being and dwelling in my presence as you spend time alone with me. There’s nothing to dread or to entertain fearful thoughts, because you live and dwell richly in me. I am your protector, your watcher, your guide; nothing shall take you away from my eyes. You are constantly in my thoughts and nothing will take you away from me. Fear has no authority in your life when my Spirit lives and abundantly abides. Let my Spirit lead and guide you and remind you of my truth.
James 4:8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
8 Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery].
2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Passion Translation
16 God has transmitted his very substance into every Scripture, for it is God-breathed. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness. 17 Then you will be God’s servant, fully mature and perfectly prepared to fulfill any assignment God gives you.
Hebrews 12:1-2a New International Version
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
1 John 4:18 The Passion Translation
18 Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts. Whoever walks constantly afraid of punishment has not reached love’s perfection.
John 16:13 The Passion Translation
13 But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, he will unveil the reality of every truth[a] within you. He won’t speak on his own, but only what he hears from the Father, and he will reveal prophetically to you what is to come.
- 16:13 The Greek word for “truth” is “reality,” not “doctrine.” It is the application of truth that matters, not just a superficial knowledge.
