I have heard your prayers. Yes, I smile at the sound of your voice. When you surrender to Me, I rejoice, for I alone know the plans I have for you. I am God, the Creator of heaven and earth and all that is within! Nothing is too difficult for Me. I can take your hardened heart and turn it towards Me. I can heal you of your waywardness.
You were created for Me and My pleasure. You will never be completely satisfied until you find your place in Me. Abandon your striving and rest in My presence. Turn your heart towards Me, for the enemy will always find ways to distract you. Ask Me to unite your heart to fear My Name. For when we are one, we are powerful, and the enemy knows this. Where there is unity, I command the blessing.
Be thankful for the blessings I bestow upon you; the ability to get up each day, the freedom to worship Me, the people in your life, your salvation, My Holy Spirit, My Word, and your spiritual leaders. For there is no end to all the blessings I have bestowed upon you. The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come that you may have life more abundantly. I am a good Father and the giver of all good gifts!
Revelation 4:9-11 The Message (MSG)
9-11 Every time the Animals gave glory and honor and thanks to the One Seated on the Throne—the age-after-age Living One—the Twenty-four Elders would fall prostrate before the One Seated on the Throne. They worshiped the age-after-age Living One. They threw their crowns at the foot of the Throne, chanting,
Worthy, O Master! Yes, our God!
Take the glory! the honor! the power!
You created it all;
It was created because you wanted it.
Psalm 85:10-13 The Message (MSG)
10-13 Love and Truth meet in the street,
Right Living and Whole Living embrace and kiss!
Truth sprouts green from the ground,
Right Living pours down from the skies!
Oh yes! God gives Goodness and Beauty;
our land responds with Bounty and Blessing.
Right Living strides out before him,
and clears a path for his passage.
