Beloved, abide is a gentle sounding word, yet it is encapsulated with the authoritative, trustworthy backbone of the Cross. It is encased in My shed blood. In light of this let Me share some facets of this all encompassing word as you behold Me in your heart.
Every Word I have given or spoken was already in Me before the ages of time. Every plan and purpose I have for you was already in My being waiting to be deposited in You when you exchanged certain eternal death for eternal life and salvation. At that very moment, all that I am was given to you. The thoughts of My heart for every step of your life and time were placed in you waiting to be discovered in the midst of communion and intimacy. All the purposes, thoughts and intents of My heart now belong to you and are open to discovery (1 Corinthians 2:16).
Do you look up and ask with questions in your eyes, “Is this the day? Is this the day of my Abraham moment?” Beloved, My name is Faithful and True (Rev 19:11). You must remember this when the calendar seems to defy My Word to you. Days, weeks, months and even years passed by with no answer to the questions in his eyes, in his heart, yet he did not waver ( Rom 4:19-21 Heb 10:23).
Beloved, thankfulness of heart and a grateful attitude has much power to combat the lulling of prosperity and success. Being thankful keeps you from taking credit for your own accomplishments and brings a heart of contentment and peace in the troughs of trying and sometime debilitating circumstances or situations.

Remember the mustard seed, the smallest seed of all, and what it can grow into (Mark 4:30-32). If a natural seed can grow into such a marvelous thing, how much more will the eternal seeds from heaven grow in you. Sometimes you think your soil is bad, but I am here to tell you today, “The soil of your salvation is good soil and can grow anything. It is rooted in love, love flowing down from Calvary” (Ephesians 3:17).
A sacrifice of thanksgiving is something you give when there seems to be no reason to do so. Even if your circumstances seem to garner no reason to praise, I am still…
Prior to knowing Me you were like the earth‚Äôs former state before My presence hovered and injected light which made way for the rest of My reformation of the earth. It all began with, ‚ÄúLet there be light!‚ÄĚ It is the same for you. Today I reaffirm and say to you, ‚ÄúLet there be Light now and forever more…
Beloved, never get comfortable in the wilderness places of your life. And remember, they are not to be considered as places of abandonment or rejection, but as temporary places of residence conducive to experiencing Me in yet undiscovered ways. When you are in the wilderness you find out who I am and who you are. And yes, you will find out who you are not. Identity is forged in the desert in a way it cannot be accomplished any other place.
Up to this time, Jesus had preformed no miracles, no great deeds and yet, I loved Him. Just as I love and loved Him, I love you with no less love. I love you without you having to perform one deed. I love you, just because you are and for no other reason. I know this is hard to fathom at times especially when you struggle or feel condemned by the enemy. Never the less, it is true. No truer statement has ever been made or said. Simply put, I LOVE YOU!
