Hear my voice loud and strong, hear my words spoken to you today. Do not be dismayed or confused when you hear the sounds of war in the air. This is just a ruse sent by your enemy to bring more fear into the air. Notice how the clouds roll in but nothing is as it appears. The world is a stage and you’ve become players in it. Tragedy has become common place and I have had nothing to do with it. Your dependence upon man to see you through things and happenings across the world, is folly in my eyes. Your dependency should only be upon me so that you can truly be my sons and daughters.
Compare and contrast how the world gives to you and provides for your every need. Do you think your job and all your belongings were given to you by chance? Do you not know that everything has been given to you by me? All your life I have provided for your every need. I leave nothing incomplete and I take care of your every need.
What do you see before you? What are you tossing around in your mind? With your mind you take yourself down a path you don’t need to go. Bring your mind to me and let me help you think clearly and concisely on the things to be. I know your future and the things to come, so who better to fill your mind than me? Take every thought captive and bring it to obedience to me and let not your heart be troubled; but at peace in me.
Application of your faith in me is required to bring you a guaranteed victory. Faith without works is not faith in me. Your choice to not even come to me is a choice indeed. Abstinence and absence from coming into my presence is a choice to rebel from what is essential to your life in me. How can you truly follow me and live your life devoid of me? This is not what I called you and delivered you and saved you from.
Stay and remain focused on me and do not stray from me. Let yourself come to me as an act of obedience to me. Don’t worry what others think of you – do this simply because you love me. Stay focused on my desires for your life and let me lead the way. There’s nothing to fear as you move forward in me, for I have all that you need or desire. Put your whole trust in me and I will lead your life into a place of victory. Come to me on bended knees and let me show you your life to be. Surrender your all to me and let my Spirit take the lead.
Jeremiah 31:10 New Life Version
10 Hear the Word of the Lord, O nations, and make it known in the lands far across the sea. Say, “He Who sent Israel everywhere will gather them, and will watch over His flock like a shepherd.”
Psalm 105:1-5 Berean Study Bible
1Give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
2Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
3Glory in His holy name;
4Seek out the LORD and His strength;
5Remember the wonders He has done,
His marvels, and the judgments He has pronounced.
Philippians 4:19 The Voice
19 Know this: my God will also fill every need you have according to His glorious riches in Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King.
Jeremiah 29:11 The Voice
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that.
James 2:14-20 The Voice
14 Brothers and sisters, it doesn’t make any sense to say you have faith and act in a way that denies that faith. Mere talk never gets you very far, and a commitment to Jesus only in words will not save you. 15 It would be like seeing a brother or sister without any clothes out in the cold and begging for food, and 16 saying, “Shalom, friend, you should get inside where it’s warm and eat something,” but doing nothing about his needs—leaving him cold and alone on the street. What good would your words alone do? 17 The same is true with faith. Without actions, faith is useless. By itself, it’s as good as dead. 18 I know what you’re thinking: “OK, you have faith. And I have actions. Now let’s see your faith without works, and I’ll show you a faith that works.”
Don’t you realize that faith without works is useless, like a glove without a hand or a hat without a head?
19 Do you think that just believing there’s one God is going to get you anywhere? The demons believe that, too, and it terrifies them! 20 The fact is, faith has to show itself through works performed in faith. If you don’t recognize that, then you’re an empty soul.
