I am the Father of lights. You are a light-being, because you are made in Our image. As you come closer to the light, you see yourself more clearly, and therefore, any darkness is exposed. You also see My brilliance and beauty. You can rest in knowing that there is no darkness in Me. Trust that the way I lead you, though not easy, is the right path.
I will make your path clear as you take each step of faith. Follow peace. When others want you to follow their path, do not turn aside, even when it does not make sense, and even when no one else follows.
The great cloud of witnesses is watching and cheering you on, along with My holy angels. They know the rewards you will receive when you arrive home. Remember your destination, and most importantly remember your goal: living well by loving well. Everything is to be as an expression of faith through love.
Proverbs 3:5-6 The Voice (VOICE)
5 Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions.
6 Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Living Bible (TLB)
4-5 If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. 6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
Galatians 5:4-6 The Message (MSG)
4-6 I suspect you would never intend this, but this is what happens. When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Meanwhile we expectantly wait for a satisfying relationship with the Spirit. For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.
