I love when you come to Me because you are no longer afraid. You are learning that I am a good God. I do not turn you away just because your behavior is not perfect. I know that you are trying. I also know all that the enemy is throwing at you.
You are in the school of the overcomer. I am teaching you to yield to the refining process and allow Me to remove the dross from your life. This is the only way to become more like My Son. When you thought I was not doing anything, I was actually drawing you to Me. You have tasted and seen that I am good and you want more! And you shall have more! For I have said, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness—they will be filled."
Trust Me to have My way in you. Continue to rely on My grace. When you fall, quickly cry out to Me for help. Learn to run to me instead of hiding behind the fig leaves of shame. I already know, so what good does it do to run and hide?
Instead, record all that I have done for you. Then you will see where your journey has led, and you will be able to recount all of the marvelous things that I have done for you. Then go and tell others of the goodness of the Lord!
Genesis 3:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Then the eyes of the two of them were opened [that is, their awareness increased], and they knew that they were naked; and they fastened fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
Psalm 34:4-5 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
4 I asked the Lord for help, and he saved me from all my fears.
5 Keep your eyes on the Lord! You will shine like the sun and never blush with shame.
Luke 8:39 Living Bible (TLB)
“Go back to your family,” he told him, “and tell them what a wonderful thing God has done for you.” So he went all through the city telling everyone about Jesus’ mighty miracle.
