The Lord your God is with you; He is mighty to save (Zephaniah 3:17). He sees your shortcomings, yet He always sees your heart. He says,
“I am your Strength even in weakness. I am your Hope in the storm. I am your Rear Guard and your Stronghold. Run to Me. Come to Me. Do not be afraid.
There is no shame anymore. There is no need for fear. I have perfected you in My love. It is done in Heaven, and in time you will walk it out more and more. You have been set free to call Me ‘Abba, Father.’ I am your Creator, your Father, your God.
You are My beloved always. Nothing can change that–no trial, no failure, no pain. Keep your ‘yes’ to Me and do not give up.
Keep coming to Me. When you fall, get back up again. Run to Me and not away. I await you each time with open arms, not with condemnation but with the desire to release forgiveness and set you free.
I am looking at your heart, My love. Come and rest in My love.“
