Child, I’m a God of mercy, not a God of performance. Remember, I want your heart, and your love, not your performance. I’m not looking for perfection. Instead, I’m looking for a yielded, love-filled heart.
Lord help me to love you like You want. Help me to stay yielded in submission to You. I do want to please You in all things.
Yes Child, it pleases Me when you seek My Presence. It pleases Me when you talk to Me about your life. In fact, I want to hear all the details, everything. I already know all about it, but I enjoy you talking with Me about it all.
Then together we can work out all things for your good and that brings Me glory.
When My people win victories in their lives, it brings Me glory.
Well Lord, what do You want me to do? What is Your will for me today? Direct all my steps, ways, and words so that they bring You honor and glory.
Child, look to Me and I will help you.
Lord, the mountains of life look large.
Child, I am larger, greater, and bigger than all the mountains. Look to Me. Trust Me. Seek My voice. Listen for My instructions. Trust Me and follow My guidance. Obey My words as I speak to your heart.
After all, I do have plans for you. And they’re plans to prosper you, to give you a hope and a future.
Child, I’ll give you My words. But first, you must listen.
Lord, what do You say?
Child, I love you in spite of all your failures for I am a God of mercy. I love you in spite of all your mistakes, your errors, and your wrong choices. Just know that I love you as you are, but also as you will be.
Also know I’ve designed a “will be” plan just for you.
Be comforted, I know of your concern for those you love. I love them all in spite of their failures, mistakes, errors, mess-ups, and wrong choices too. Yes, I love them all for I am a God of mercy.
In fact, I have designed a “will be” future for each one of them too. Yes, I have a victory already specifically designed for each one.
