“Discouraged” was written last month. Today is day 5 of victory. ________________________
Lord, I’m so discouraged.
My child, as you proceed, you will grow in confidence. As you learn, you will grow in confidence.
Am I too skinny?
My child, focus on obedience to Me and allow Me to be in control. I will decide where your weight needs to be.
What about all this skin and these wrinkles? When I look in the mirror, I get discouraged.
Water, My child, drink your water. Maintain your lotions, but know I will provide what you have need of.
My child, I work out all things for your good and My glory. You can trust Me. I’m not hard, but I’m real. I see deep into men’s hearts, what motivates them, what disappoints them, what discourages them, what hurts them, and what causes them joy. My child, rest in this, I AM in control of all things, even this. Even when people make choices not according to My will, I still work out all things according to My plans and My glory. Even their bad choices turn out for good.
Then the example of their empty lives will show the others the lack of joy without ME. Others will see and therefore choose the path of innermost joy with ME.
“And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You.” Psalm 39:7
Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24
My grace is sufficient for you for My power is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy. Psalm 147:11
