I will draw all men unto Me. For I am the Lover of souls. I gave My life that you may have life. Not only on the cross, but when I left My Father's side.

I am the Beginning and the End, forever the Lamb slain before the foundation of this world.

And still right to the end, amidst the chaos, I will still draw them to Me. For I am full of compassion and slow to anger. My wrath is for a season, but My love will never end. Neither will My word fall to the ground. That which I have promised, I will do.

Oh, My lambs, come to Me and draw near to Me as I embrace you in My loving arms. For I am desirous to take you up. When your mother, father, brother, sister and friend has forsaken you, I am all that to you. I am your all in all. I am your beginning and your end. You are Mine. And nobody will be able to snatch you out of My Father's hands.

Know that in this hour, My eye is upon you, to deliver you, to draw you, to make all things new. I have promised you new life. I am eternal life. I and My Father are one and we will draw you to us. That you may be one with us. That you may be where I am.

I will draw all men unto Me. Let those who desire salvation come. Come to Me.

About a week ago Father have been bringing the subject of honey to my attention.  My daughter, being the typical teenager, asked me whether it is good to drink milk, because according to “others” it is not.  I told her that if milk was bad for us (the hormone free ones), then why would God have said to the Israelites that He is giving them the land of milk and honey?  Not long after that I burned my finger, and she asked me why don’t I put some honey on it?  Then during the week there were 3 other occasions when honey came up as a subject again.  By now I knew Father was saying something, but still no clue.  On Sunday I woke up from a nap, and as I woke, I heard the words “The promised honey”.  This reminded me of a dream I had about 8 months ago.  In my dreams, 99% of the time, Jesus is represented by my husband.  In this dream I asked my husband to buy me honey.  When I opened my fridge, to my surprise, I saw two white containers.  One filled with milk and one filled with honey.  Last night I had this craving for milk before I went to bed, and thought I would like some honey with it for a change…and finally I knew what He was saying.

We know that milk and honey is synonymous with Canaan.  But what does Canaan stand for?  There are various ways of looking at it.  When we leave Egypt, the system of this world, we have to go through our wilderness period like the Israelites where we learn to take up our cross.  We go through the Red Sea to find entrance into this wilderness.  The Red Sea being symbolic of our dying in Christ, our identification with Him as the one whom we follow, as His presence goes with us on this journey through this rough terrain.   In His faithfulness He breaks us down in this wilderness, removing the Egyptian way of thinking  and in the process renewing our minds, exposing the idols we have picked up along the way and then He starts to build us.  Constantly breaking and building the whole time, as we are His workmanship and are changed from prostitutes of this world to priests of the Most High God.  And then we reach the Jordan.  A new crossing.  The setting changes slightly.  The Red Sea is a sea, whereas the Jordan is a river.  By itself it is saying that many are called, but few are chosen.  Chosen to go into the Promised Land of milk and honey.  This crossing over to the Promised Land can also be seen as heaven, where we will find our eternal rest in the Lord, which is soon to take place.  This will be the resurrection of those who are alive in Christ, the Bride who has made herself ready.  But I want to talk about another resurrection, one that Father has laid on my heart.  I was reluctant to write this post, simply thinking that there is so little time left, but it was on His heart. 

This Jordan River is not only different to the Red Sea in size, but also in what it stands for.  Where the Red Sea is the identification with His death, the Jordan is the entering into His death.  A real felt death in all your categories.  Where, like Lazarus, only the Resurrection and the Life can raise you up.  In His time.  Canaan is also synonymous with rest.   When we go to Hebrews 4 we read that the Israelites could not enter due to their unbelief.  Faith and rest goes together like a hand in a glove.  But what is this rest?  What does it look like?  We read the following in Hebrews that explains it nicely. 

Hebrews 4: 10 – 11

10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

The reality is that only He can bring us to this Jordan where we are to cross by faith and enter into His rest.  Our focus has been so much on ceasing from our works that we have lost focus on the why He wants us to cease from our works.

This is the reality of the incarnate Christ in you, the Spirit of God having full control over your life to the extent that you no longer live from the life source you have always lived off, which is self, but only from Him.  As David said, Lord, all my springs are shut up in you.  Where He wants to be the life in you, Christ living through you.  The reality of it.   True rest, now.  This is why the Lord told them to circle Jericho and with a shout of victory the walls came down, not lifting one finger.  They were in His rest, where they obey, but He does. 

Twelve spies were sent into Canaan to go check out the land.  As you know only two of the twelve had a good report.  The other ten were just not up to the task, seeing themselves as grasshoppers to the likes of the inhabitants of the land.  Two had the faith and courage to take the land, whilst the majority was just not up to it.  Father asked me a question.  Do you believe?  He took me back to where this fast started, right back to Lazarus.  We read how Martha came running to Jesus and cried, saying that if only He was there her brother would still be alive.  Jesus tells her the following…

JOHN 11: 22 - 26

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. 

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

In these few verses Jesus confronts Mary with what she believes.  At that time there was the belief amongst some that there would be a resurrection at the end of the age.  Jesus knew that this is what Mary believed.  So He was not confronting her whether she actually believed in the resurrection, that which is future.  He was confronting her with whether she believed it now.  This is why He told her even after she said that He will cause all the dead to rise in the end, with the words…I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.   Present tense.  If you read carefully you will find two categories mentioned by Jesus in his statement.  He refers to the dead and He refers to those who are alive. 

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

He was confronting her with the fact that she believed the one, but not the other.  Asking, “Believest thou this?”  And this is what He is confronting us with today.  Because we believe that He is about to take us out of here.  This is good and we should be prepared as the Bride by now.  And if you are not, I suggest you get your house in order. However, I want to refer this back to the Jordan and Canaan, which speaks of living from the life of God in us. The dead are raised, and those who are alive shall never die…life!  I have said this so many times, you cannot have a resurrection unless there is death, and the life that you live having been raised is that eternal life, not longevity only, but quality life…resurrection life.  Believest thou this?  This is that milk and honey.  No longer the manna.  We read that once they entered Canaan, the manna stopped, and they lived off the fruit of the land and the milk and honey.  This fruit is the fruit of the Tree of life…Christ in us.  To live off Him.  The milk speaks of the Word of God and the honey is revelation.  We read how Saul called for a fast and how Jonathan ate honey.

1 Samuel 14: 24 - 27

24 And the men of Israel were distressed that day: for Saul had adjured the people, saying, Cursed be the man that eateth any food until evening that I may be avenged on mine enemies. So none of the people tasted any food.

25 And all they of the land came to a wood; and there was honey upon the ground.

26 And when the people were come into the wood, behold, the honey dropped; but no man put his hand to his mouth: for the people feared the oath.

27 But Jonathan heard not when his father charged the people with the oath: wherefore he put forth the end of the rod that was in his hand, and dipped it in a honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth; and his eyes were enlightened.

Honey is used for medicinal purposes, and not just to sweeten our tea.  It also speaks of strength and wisdom.  David said the following of the Word of God, comparing it to honey.

Psalm 119:103

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

I call honey “Liquid Gold”.  Just by these few examples, one can see that it is a precious commodity.  It is universally known that if you do not eat, you do not get to live.  We all need to eat.  Or what about, “You are what you eat”?  In this case, eating from the Tree of life’s fruit, drinking milk from the Word, and sticky lips from the pure honey of the wisdom and revelation of God, which is completely different than living from manna.  Never looking down on the manna, because He knows that we cannot enjoy the one, without having eaten first of the other.  This is an example of the resurrection life of Christ in us.  Not for future, but now.  Resurrection life now!

Galatians 2: 20

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Paul, having completely died to self, has been risen from the dead, his Jordan River, having been buried with Christ, not in theory, but reality, into new life, which is that Resurrection life.  I have to ask at this point, knowing that Lazarus eventually died, “With what life did Lazarus go on living when he was risen from the dead?”  A good example to us to know that even before we leave this earth, He desires to make this a reality to us.  He wants us to know that He is I AM.  Even now He will resurrect you like Paul, like Lazarus.  He will remove your grave clothes of white linen and clothe you with His glorious life, with His righteousness and He will do it by being that very life in you.  We already have this life in us.  It is the Word, the incorruptible seed that will never return void, having grown all along during the wilderness.  And to the degree that you still eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, that self, to which the ax has not been laid to the root, is the degree that you will walk in His rest, in this Resurrection Life.  He has not just come to take us out of here.  He has come to lay the ax to the root.  And this is why He is confronting us with “Do thou believest this?”  Do you believe that I can give you resurrection life now?   You may ask me, “Why is this important Pietra?” 

We read the shortest verse of the whole Bible in John 11, the account of Lazarus’ resurrection.

35. Jesus wept.

The people around Him thought that He was crying over Lazarus, but right before He and His disciples went to Lazarus grave, He told them that Lazarus would live again.  He even began His prayer with “Thank you Father, I know you always hear my prayer”.  So why was Jesus weeping.  I submit to you that He is still weeping.  He is weeping because of unbelief.  The very crux of this chapter is not the resurrection of Lazarus, but who Jesus IS and what we believe.  Do we believe, really believe that He wants to give us this resurrection life now?  Because your whole journey through the wilderness is in preparation of this reality.  To bring you to this point where you will live from Him, the Tree of Life, with His promised honey.  Some believers believes Him for a future resurrection.  This is good.  We should believe that He will take us out of here.  But He is still weeping over those who do not believe in the resurrection life that He wants to give now.  They pay lip service to it.  They say they are raised with Christ, that they have died in the baptism water and are a new creature.  This is all true.  We are all that.  But we are that by degrees to the extent that we have actually died.  He is not asking us whether we believe He can change our circumstances. 

He is asking us, “Do you believe I AM in you?  Do you believe that I want to live through you?  Do you understand why you have to die?  Because like Paul, there cannot be two.  We have to become one.  All of you for all of Me.  This is why I came.  Not just to save this world from the coming destruction, but to be the Patterned Son for you to emulate.  For you to live, like I did, from the life of the Father, which is Resurrection Life.  For I only spoke what He told me to speak and the works that I did, He did through Me.  This is why I say, “When you see Me, you have seen the Father”.  For we are one.  In the same way, My desire is to be one with you as I was and is one with the Father.  I AM the Resurrection and the Life and I have been preparing you for exactly that.  That I may live through you as the Father lived through Me.  Believest thou this?”

This we also read in John 17, His High Priestly prayer. His purpose has always been that we are to experience resurrection life now.  We all groan together with creation for the adoption of the sons of God, to be resurrected.  But there are two resurrections.  The one of the body in the future and the one of the spirit now.  God knows how I long for both equally.  How I long to be one with Him, even now on this earth.

Does He know this about you?  Do you long more for the rapture, than you long for union with Him?  Do you long more to be taken out of this world, which is not wrong in itself?  How much do you yearn for His resurrection life now?  Or are you waiting it out, not really pursuing His purpose in this regard?  We look to ourselves and there is no hope.  Nothing.  We cannot do it and without knowing it, we try our best, and really hope for the resurrection of the body at best.  Jesus wept.  Two resurrections…that of the future, even if it is a close future, and that of the spirit to live now from His life.  Are we not to believe both and trust for both?  Paul says the following in Philippians 3.

Philippians 3: 7 - 16

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Paul is wanting to apprehend that for which also he was apprehended for of Christ Jesus.  He is saying, my eye, my focus, is on why He saved me, which is to know Him, the power of His resurrection, the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.  This speaks of a process, a goal, a purpose.  Why He came to save us…which is that He may fully live through us.

We are in a race against time. Time is up so to speak.  However, the question remains, “Do thou believest this?"  If anything, I guess this is where the prize comes in.  To run this race with endurance and long suffering.  Not so that we can make it and somehow be lucky enough to be accounted worthy as Luke 21 says, but running this race by Him and through Him.  His life in us.  To still strive to be like Him in this race, right up and until He comes and takes us out of here.  Though we look forward to the future resurrection, may we today believe for it now, that we who live may have eternal life now.  Yes, we enter into Canaan by faith.  But there is a reason why we first have to go through the wilderness to reach the Jordan and there to die.  So that the faith that we live by, even that faith, is not our own.  We read this in Paul’s statement, showing us that there is a  time that He brings us to not live by our faith, but by His. 

Galatians 2: 20

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

When He becomes our all in all, it is not a statement of how we have died to everything as much as it is a statement of how He is now our life.  There is a promise made to us.  A promise of an inheritance for those who have died, risen by His life, to no longer live in the wilderness, but to enter into His rest and live from the Land of milk and honey.   

Let us therefore labour to enter into the rest of God, and eat honey!

I am adding this after I did my audio recording, thinking that I would look up the meaning of the Strong's Concordance number, 2227, which is the length of the audio. It is self-explanatory... God is faithful!

zóopoieó: to make alive

Original Word: ζῳοποιέω
Part of Speech: Verb
Transliteration: zóopoieó
Phonetic Spelling: (dzo-op-oy-eh'-o)
Definition: to make alive
Usage: I make that which was dead to live, cause to live, quicken.

HELPS Word-studies

2227 zōopoiéō (from 2221 /zōgréō, "alive" and 4160 /poiéō, "make") – properly, make alive (zōos); i.e. "quicken," vivify ("animate"); (figuratively) cause what is dead (inoperative) to have lifeempower with divine life.

2227 /zōopoiéō ("make alive, enliven") is particularly used of God infusing His life in the believer. The Lord infuses eternal life (zōē) into us each time we receive (obey) faith from Him. This enables living with God – not just for Him (cf. Gal 2:20; Ro 8:28-30; 1 Jn 5:4). His self-existent, all-powerful life overcomes all the deadly effects of sin.

(1 Cor 15:36,38) seedcome to life – The resurrection-body of the believer will be characterized by continuity with diversity – i.e. reflecting the physical-spiritual life we lived here on earth in a supra-physical fashion (Phil 3:11-21). Both of these aspects of glorification are illustrated in 1 Cor 15 by the metaphor of seeds.

At this present time this is exactly where I am.  Very weak.  I know that I am not alone, and I am not looking for sympathy.  It is just serves as an opening statement to the foundation to this post, but also as the foundation of my life.  This is no new rodeo for me, just that the ride has become bumpier, with a lot of blue marks on the way. 

This morning I was reminded of an important question we all often forget to ask…”Why is Father allowing this?”  This made me think of the autobiography I started reading again of the late George Muller.  For those who do not know him, he lived during the 1800’s and opened many orphanages and was known for his great faith.  Not once did he ever ask anyone for money.  He only looked to God.  Those who worked for him in the orphanage was under a vow to never divulge to anyone on the outside of the need of the orphanage or the needs of George Muller himself.  He raised 1, 500 000 pounds in his lifetime without ever asking anyone for any money.  This is not to mention the book made of many volumes about the everyday miracles, even those who were at the last second.  He was truly a giant in the faith!  In his journals he often told of his struggles with sin and how much he despised these weaknesses in him.  I think if I had to give two words to describe him, it would be humility and faith.  The same can be said of a late 1600 century monk called Brother Lawrence.  Both these books are in my Recommended Books page and many more.  Brother Lawrence never wrote a book, but he wrote letters to someone who later made a book of it, called “Practicing the Presence of God”.  I cannot recommend it enough.  It is a small book that will stay with you all your life.  I have read it probably 5 times, if not more.  The last few chapters speaks of this man’s great faith.  But everything before it, speaks of his humility.  The foundation of great faith.

At this stage you may ask me why I am mentioning these two men of great faith.  Well, as I was reading the autobiography of George Muller, I came to the part where it spoke about the struggle he had with sicknesses all his life.  Father did heal him of many ailments, but he often went for surgeries and was never healed completely.  I can see how this was also the case with many other men of great faith, even Paul.  God truly knows how to humble us on this journey in faith.  Art Katz my mentor, once mentioned in one of his sermons how he was suffering from hemorrhoids, unbeknownst to those around him.  A young man came up to him after a service and asked him how he remained humble in all the revelations and wisdom Father gives him.  His answer, “Oh God has His ways…He has his ways”.  As I am sitting here slowly understanding what is happening, I once again see Father’s provision in my daughter.  He knows exactly which iron will sharpen the other.  What it will take to constantly bring me to my knees.  He knows in His wisdom how to keep me low.  And now knowing this, I can walk more focused.  Knowing that the next time I see her, having to face the abuse or endless barrage of questions, that through her, His loving hand is on me.  His hand on me to humble me, to keep me dependent on Him in my weakness. 

We often want strength when we are weak.  It makes perfect sense.   What does He do?  He gives me something that I cannot handle.  He gives me something that overwhelms, humanly impossible and that I cannot control.  Sounds to me like a recipe for faith.  He told me a while ago on a previous fast that the things that will not help me on this journey He is taking me on are: dreams, visions, revelations, friends or family.  What will help me on this journey are patience, long-suffering, endurance and faithfulness in love.  Remember, faith worketh by love.  That list in itself should let major warning bells go off.  At this I am reminded of two verses in Hebrews that is close to my heart.

Hebrews 5: 7 – 8      

Who in the day of his flesh, when he offered up prayers and supplication with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save him from death and was heard in that he feared.

Does that sound like a strong and courageous man?  It sounds to me like a weak and desperate man.  With strong crying and tears he prayed.  The fear He had was not to sin against the Father in this time of weakness, which is in the flesh.  Subject like us to not only sin, but terrible weakness.  In verse 8 we read the following –

Though he was a Son, he learned obedience in the things that he suffered.

Faith is not for the strong and courageous.  Faith is for the weak and desperate to make them strong and courageous.  It just so happens that by the examples I have given, you cannot have the one without the other.  There are many out there with bold claims, and even those with wonderful testimonies, but it seems very interesting to me the path Father takes His great heroes of the faith on.  The following is said in George Muller’s autobiography:

“But in faith and in the filial spirit, he always continued to be a little child.  Mr. J. Hudson Taylor well reminds us that while in nature the normal order of growth is from childhood to manhood and so to maturity, in grace the true development is perpetually backward toward the cradle; we must become and continue as little children, not losing, but rather gaining, childlikeness of spirit.  The disciple’s matures manhood is only the perfection of his childhood.”

The more we grow in Him, the more He shows us our weakness and baptize us in it.  Unless He does this, we will depend on ourselves.  We will be as a crooked arrow that keeps on turning to our own understanding, even our spiritual understanding.  We will inevitably go our way and forsake His.  Ask yourself why He would allow Paul this thorn in the flesh we read of in 2 Corinthians 12.  This “thing” of which many speculate about what it is, often missing the whole point.  Why such a great man of faith, next to Jesus, the Apostle?  Did he not go through enough already?  Think of what he endured: shipwrecked, beaten, running for his life, fought with beasts, imprisonment, lashed.  The list goes on.  Just take the time of what it would feel like to be bobbing around in an ocean?  How would that affect you?  What about being lashed and being thrown in a prison.  Not our neat prisons, but a dungeon crawling with insects, mice, excrement and the likes?  Not for a night only.  Think of what it cost for him to have written the epistles that we so freely can read.  And in spite of all that, God decides, “Paul, I think you did not have enough suffering.  I think I will give you something to be your constant companion.  It will never leave your side.  In fact, you will call it a thorn in your side.  I will keep you under the baptism of suffering to keep you in weakness.  Because Paul, I know your heart.  I know you have gone through so much for the gospel, but Paul, even the suffering can be an idol. Even the suffering can be a pedestal for you to stand on and secretly boast about what you have suffered for the Kingdom.  And because I will not share My glory with anybody, I have provided a means to constantly humble you.  How you look at it, how you perceive and deal with it in your life will either humble you or make you bitter.  How you deal with it will either cause you to with strong crying and tears depend more on me, or cause you to lean on your own understanding.  Your obedience is taught to you through the suffering of my choice, because I know what you need.  Will you embrace it or reject it?  My wisdom is not like yours.  You want to take it away, I want it to stay.  You want it to be light, I want it to cause you to bow your knee.  Not for a day, not for a season, but as a disposition.  For unless I do this, you will take My glory.” 

This reminded me of something I wrote down in my journal during a previous fast. I wrote:

“Unless I allow Him to fully use me, I will inevitably use Him.”

This post is for someone out there that has been fighting the same battle that is not of their choosing.  Meaning that it did not come because of any sin they have done, but rather by design.  God’s design.  It takes wisdom to know the difference.  The importance of knowing your season cannot be stressed enough.  We need to walk by the Spirit.  We need to ask “Why are You allowing this Father?” Because unless we know we could be kicking against the goads, against that which He has allowed.  The same goes for the opposite.  Unless you know for sure, you might allow something that He wants you to fight.  Wisdom remains the principal thing, and in all your getting, get understanding (Proverbs 4: 7).

Oh the wisdom of our Father!  This world do not know Him.  They cannot know Him, but He gives us His Word, His Spirit and His love.  In all His dealings, sometimes very cruel in our eyes, He never cease to amaze us.  Not all will necessarily fall into this category concerning what they are presently going through.  But I know that nobody is exempt.  If Paul had to go through it, and Jesus had to go through it, what makes you think you do not have to?  The key is recognizing when you are there, then to lean in the arms of the One who holds you, and ride the storm.  Let the pain, the sorrow, and agony wash over you as you surrender to the humbling of your soul.  For out of the soil of your heart will rise a new song, a sacrifice of joy to the One who holds you in His hands. 

Father reminded me of a word He gave me last year that I think will encourage you.  May you be richly blessed by our Father’s compassion and love amidst the making of great faith in you, through humility.


WORD RECEIVED – 27 November 2020


It is I who establish the boundaries of all habitations.  It is I who have commanded the sea to go no further and set the mountains in their place.  It is I who have placed the starts in the sky and have called them by name.  It is I who call the sun by morning, and raise the moon at night.  Yes, it is I who hold the cradle of this earth, I who was and is, and is to come.  It is I who have placed all in order and have set the boundaries of all living things.  And it is even I that have made the destroyer to destroy. 

Yet, as I look upon this earth, and search the hearts of my children, in the cradle of My hand, even so, I search for faith.  For I asked My disciples, “Will the Son of Man find faith on earth when He returns?”  Surely My children you know that by My Word I establish, create and destroy?  Surely you know that by My word and My word only all things came into existence?  Yet the enemy has taken your eyes from the Creator to the creation as you start to see her travail.  Even as Peter looked at the waves and lost sight of Me.  Without faith it is impossible to please Me.  Therefore, faith, your most important commodity is what keeps you above water.  Faith in Me.  You in Me…in the cradle of My hand.  The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.  I have you in the cradle of My hand and even this world, which I will rock.  Those who are not in My hand shall fall to and fro and be overwhelmed.  But those in the cradle of My hand will not be shaken.  Examine yourself in this day.  Are you in the cradle?  Are you overwhelmed?  Are you afraid, are you seeking ways to secure when I alone am your fortress and defense?  Does a child not rest in a cradle and fully depend to be cared for by his father? 

Even so I that am your Father, will I then not provide?  Have I not said, “Do not fear”?  I know your weaknesses, I am your strength.  I know your shortage, I am your provision.  I know your heartache.  I am your comfort.  I know your pain, I am your healer.  Is My arm too short that I cannot save?  Faith, My children, faith is that which pleases Me, for I am all that you need.  I will give wisdom to those who ask in faith.  But always come as a child.  I hold the cradle of the world in My hand, and I determine what is, what should be and all to come.  Never losing sight of My little ones. 

Your level of faith is in your infancy with Me – weak, dependent and trusting.

Not in worldly wisdom.  Trust Me My children.  Trust that He who is the Alpha, who created all, is also the Omega, who will finish it all.  The beginning and the End…Your Father.



2 Corinthians 11:18 – 30

2 Corinthians 12: 6 - 10
