Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.

May you not be surprised when authorities and principalities in the world exalt and magnify themselves above values and principles, norms and guidelines, even above the Word of God, and succeed in being accepted by many, for God works with willing vessels, and a time of wrath must be completed, for what has been determined must take place. Daniel 11

May you take notice when the time of distress occurs, that God will defend and protect, shield and cover, deliver and redeem His people, all whose names are found written in His book. Daniel 11

May you be like those who are wise and shine like the brightness of the heavens, and like those who lead many to righteousness, glowing like the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12

May you wait expectantly and earnestly, enduring without wavering beyond the period of tribulation, that you may be purified, made spotless and refined, increasing in wisdom and understanding, though none of the wicked will comprehend. Daniel 12

May you diligently test the doctrines and teachings you are given, not by man's carnal reasoning or the world's unsanctified wisdom, but by the wisdom which comes down from the Father, as found in the Scriptures, testified to by the Spirit, and confirmed through the Body as exemplified and manifested by a lifestyle that demonstrates the love of God, which sent Jesus Christ, Who came in the flesh, to make man saveable. 1 John 4

May you be confident that the spirit of antichrist, which influences people to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and reject divine authority, has been overcome and defeated because the One Who is in you is greater that he who is in the world. 1 John 4

May you love one another, for love springs from God, and everyone who loves others is born of God and is coming progressively to know and understand God – to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him. 1 John 4

Turn to Me, My child, in all things. Come to Me for comfort, find in Me wisdom for the day, receive from Me the provision I have promised daily. I long to embrace you in My arms and let you find the blessings I have prepared for you.
Spend time alone in your heart with Me, My dear one, and let your thoughts become focused on Me. I have much to tell you, and you have much to learn of Me. Set aside the cares and concerns that distract you and hear Me speaking encouragement and strength into your life as I express My love for you.
You must seek Me with your whole heart, focused and eager, because that which I have prepared for you is hidden. Do not be discouraged by this or disheartened, for that which you seek is not hidden from you, but it is hidden for you.
As you look for Me and follow My footprints, hearing My whispers, drawing close and recognizing My fragrance, you will encounter those things which speak to you of the depth and width and length and height of My love.
Do not settle for the crumbs and handfuls that others share from the abundance I have given them, but persist in your pursuit and receive all that is yours from My hand.
Do not be content to only hear someone else tell you how much I love you, but continually seek Me until you hear the full expression of My love for you from My own lips.
Although the path is challenging because the world will place brambles and thorns in your way, the flesh will put stumbling stones and rocks on your path, and the enemy will flood the way to drag you down and mire your progress, still I am with you and will make the way for you. Turn always to Me.

May you understand in humility and gratitude that God loved you first and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, as an atoning sacrifice for your sins so that you might live because of His work and love one another, relying on the love God has for you, so that His love is made complete. 1 John 4

May you live in the calm certainty of God's love for you, and know God's love in your life for others, having no fear of the day of judgment, for His perfect love drives out any fear of punishment, freeing you to love God and love others, giving to their needs just as God has given to your needs. 1 John 4

May you lift up your eyes to the Lord, whose throne is in heaven, just as the eyes of a slave look to the hand of their master, till He shows you His mercy and lovingkindness. Psalm 123

May you endure the contempt of the arrogant and the ridicule of the proud for the Lord has mercy upon you. Psalm 123
