Matthew 6:31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'

 

May you embrace and proclaim the full message of God, not selectively speaking the blessings of the pride of life and the comfort of the flesh to all, but minister the balm of Gilead to those who are wounded, the circumcision of the heart to those who are carnal, godly sorrow and repentance to those who are proud and arrogant, and loving honor to fellow members of Christ's body who are ministering in their calling, drawing all toward peace and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. Jeremiah 28 Hebrews 12

 

May you have the strength of faith to trust in God so that after obediently proclaiming His word, you can walk away, not engaging in fleshly defense when God does nothing at the time, knowing that the contemptuous resistance of others is not to you but to the truth of God's Word which you have proclaimed, and in the fullness of time, He will be shown to be Lord. Jeremiah 28

 

May you know that you are led under God's authority, not man's, and placed in the earth by His choice, not bureaucrats, that you may speak His word to people He brings to you; therefore pray for the peace and prosperity of the place He sets you that you may share His truth in peace and bring increase to the kingdom of God, in the assurance that the individuals with governmental and financial power do not control the land's destiny, but God does in response to the turning of the heart of the people. Jeremiah 29

 

May you be certain that the Lord knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, for then you will call upon Him and come to pray to Him, and He will listen to you, since you will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart, and He will bring you into the freedom He has decreed for you. Jeremiah 29

 

May you receive grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus the Lord. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you devote yourself to the Word of God, which builds faith and promotes God's work, to reach the goal of love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you know that the law is good if it is used as it was intended, not for those who walk in the righteousness of Christ, conformed through sound doctrine to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, but for the lawless and rebellious, the ungodly and sinners, the unholy and profane, for murderers and manslayers, for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers, and whatever tends to weaken your love for God or for the brethren, that each may come, through knowledge of their sin, in repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ to walk in His love toward others. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you thank Christ Jesus your Lord, Who has given you strength, that He considered you faithful, and appointed you to His service, though you were once a blasphemer and rebellious. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you understand that you were shown mercy because you acted in ignorance and unbelief, therefore the grace of the Lord was poured out on you abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you fully accept the fact that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, such as you, so that through the mercy shown to you, Christ Jesus might display His unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on Him and receive eternal life, and He, the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, would receive honor and glory for ever and ever. 1 Timothy 1

 

May you follow the godly encouragement and instructions given you so that you may fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience in Christ. 1 Timothy 1

 

My child, I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.

To look upon Me in faith as I am lifted up is to live. To dwell in Me is to dine with Me and grow strong.

Living without strength is not My will for you, My love. I desire that you walk and run and leap for joy as My Spirit indwells you.

A child that simply sits is not healthy; as a young body grows, muscles must be stretched and exercised for bones to become sturdy and life to flow through all the veins. Thinking becomes narrowed and dulled if no activity is engaged in, but the mind becomes sharper and understanding grows clearer as the sunshine and fresh air invigorates the eyes and lungs, and good food nourishes the muscles and bones.

I have seated you in the heavenlies at My banqueting table, flying My banner of love over you, and I have appointed tutors and governors to train and teach you. But I have also given you liberty to fly in My Spirit across the face of creation and to touch the heart of the Father, to feel His love for you and to know His sorrows for His people. 

As My indwelling Spirit leads you, My cherished one, work the work of the Father in prayer and in deed, in word and in action, that you may know My strength and My patience, My undergirding arm and My outpouring anointing. Life is found in Me, My dear one, abundant and free, as you run and dance and sprint and twirl with the Spirit across the grassy meadows of the heavenlies, learning in love and growing in understanding. 

The tumbles you take work to improve your coordination and the repetitions you make develop the habits you need, for you must be strong as well as patient, determined as well as gentle, as you learn to work in tandem with others of your family as a productive part of My Body.

The abundant life I have for you is full and without measure, heaped up and running over. There is abundant work, and more than enough strength to meet it. There is an abundance of fellowship, and room enough in your heart to receive it. All that you face, the sorrow, the fear, the anxiety, the care, will be faced with Me, for I am with you all the way, having promised to finish the work in you that I have started; I have given you My Word which is truth, and My Spirit without measure. Rest in them, My weary one, and be renewed in Me. Do not give up, My precious one, for the best is yet to come.

May you come and worship before Him, for among the powers and authorities found in heaven and earth, there is none like the Lord Jehovah, and no deeds or works that can compare with His, for He is great and does marvelous deeds, and He alone receives the glory due to His name. Psalm 86

 

May you walk in His truth as the Lord teaches you His way, and may you fear His name as God gives you an undivided heart, so that you may praise the Lord your God with all your heart and glorify His name forever, for by His great love toward you, He has delivered you from the depths of the grave. Psalm 86

 

When the arrogant and ruthless attack you, may you turn to the Lord, Who is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, that He will have mercy on you, grant you strength and save you as a sign to all His enemies of His goodness, help, and comfort to you. Psalm 86
