Everything is accelerating at an alarming rate, and you must be like the wise virgins who kept their lamps full of oil. You must rely on Me to fill you daily as you come into My presence. Do you long to be with Me as much as I desire your presence?
This is the day to take My words seriously. I have poured out much grace to you, so do not take it for granted. My grace is sufficient for every need. Where more sin abounds, more grace abounds, so do not fear or become discouraged. Only focus on what you need to do each day as I reveal it to you. Quickly align your thoughts according to My Word. Do not worry about aligning your feelings as much as your thoughts. The other will follow as you yield to My Spirit and die to self.
Ask Me for help each and every time you are struggling. You will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony. Pray in the Spirit and I will release angels to war with you, for you are never alone and help is only a breath away.
1 Peter 5:8-11 The Message (MSG)
8-11 Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.
Hebrews 4:12-13 New International Version (NIV)
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Romans 5:20 Living Bible (TLB)
The Ten Commandments were given so that all could see the extent of their failure to obey God’s laws. But the more we see our sinfulness, the more we see God’s abounding grace forgiving us.
Psalm 119:10-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
10 With all my heart I have sought You, [inquiring of You and longing for You];
Do not let me wander from Your commandments [neither through ignorance nor by willful disobedience]. 11 Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.
