Do you remember, as a child, the anticipation when the parade came to town? The excitement of people waving and cheering on the floats, candy being tossed into the crowds, the joyful music playing and the atmosphere of celebration? For this is the day that the Lord has made. Go ahead and rejoice! Be glad in it! It's time to join in the celebration.
You must take a risk and step out in faith to realize who you really are. You were born for such a time as this. Do not hold back, but release the light that I have placed in you. You were born to shine and release light to the multitudes. Stop waiting for others, but follow your heart. For surely, your joy will be made complete when you release your light, because you are releasing Me!
No longer allow fear to rule you, but trust in My goodness. I will take your hand and lead you in the dance. I will catch you if you fall. You do not have to "have it all together" before you step out, but you must keep your eyes fixed on Me at all times. For surely My Kingdom is advancing, My Truth is marching on, and My Light is breaking through the darkness as My children become the light of the world and the salt of the earth!
Ephesians 3:16-17 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.
17 Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
Hebrews 10:39 The Passion Translation (TPT)
But we are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life!
Psalms 26:3 The Passion Translation (TPT)
I will never lose sight of your steadfast love for me. Your faithfulness has steadied my steps.
