May you rejoice in your seasons of want, for then God can strengthen your faith by being more visibly seen as your Source for all your needs; and may you rejoice in your times of plenty, for then you can loosen your grip on the world and grow in humility as you understand God's favor, and not your ability, brings it to pass.

My child, what convinces you that I am the Lord?
Is it the love and compassion you feel when My Spirit makes My Word real to you and brings life to your spirit as you pray and draw close to Me?
Is it the awe and respectful fear that you experience when you see My power demonstrated in someone's life, delivering and healing them in a miraculous way?
Is it the weighty and sorrowful conviction of sin when My Spirit moves on your heart to bring cleansing and purifying to your life and your ways?
Is it the dreadful and terrible shaking you encounter when My judgment is executed against the enemy and those who choose to be influenced by him, even to those who call themselves by My Name, but whose hearts are far from Me?
It is your choice, My dear one. I am the Lord, and all mankind will know that I AM.
