Peace Like a River!

Daily Encouragement

Are you on the right track? Are you profiting in this life? Do you know how to gain righteousness? Do you have true peace of mind in what you are doing?

I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life!!! Only through Me can you truly gain anything! There are many ways that lead to destruction and death. However, there is only one way to peace and life. You cannot go your own way!

Come to Me! I am your teacher and The leader in the way you should go. Come follow Me! Obey My word and walk in My way! The reward and profit of following Me in obedience is peace, righteousness, and joy. You cannot gain these by following the ways of the world! Come follow Me!!! I love you My child!

Isaiah 48:17-18 “Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.
Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”

Self-sufficient?

Daily Encouragement –

What do you need? Are you good? Are you self-sufficient? Where do you place your trust? 

It is not wrong to know you are needy. It is prideful to think you could ever be self-sufficient. This lifestyle leads to death and destruction in so many different ways. You need Me! 

Do you trust in your good works, the work of your own hands? I am the One who works in you the Good. Do you trust in your own reason, resources, and riches? Everything good comes from Me! You must never trust in the things I have given, this is idolatry. Trust in Me!!! 

You can never be self-sufficient. You need Me. You could never take away the stain of sin! You cannot work your way into salvation, healing, or freedom… But why would you want to even try? I have already done the work and paid the price. 

Come to Me and receive all that I have! My storehouse is full of resources waiting for you to ask and trust. You need Me. Come and find your sufficiency in Me. I love you My child and will supply everything you need and more, if you will only come to Me and trust!!!

Jeremiah 48:7 “For because you have trusted in your works and your treasures,You also shall be taken…”

Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Prideful Opinion or Humble Trust?

Daily Encouragement –

What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word? 

Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you. 

Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things. 

Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”

A Special Invitation

Daily Encouragement – 

I am The primary Initiator!!! I seek you out first!!! At the beginning, I sought you out, found you, and invited you to follow Me. This invitation is a command to put aside your will and your ways. This must be done so that you can seek Me out anew every day! 

Where am I today? What am I saying and doing? Seek Me out and join Me in My work! I know it is not always easy. I know the cares, weights, and worries of this world. 

Sometimes you may get off track and lose your way, your desire through discouragement and disappointment. During these times, I will seek you out again and give you new purpose and new life, with the same invitation to follow Me. 

Come close to Me! Seek Me anew every day! Walk with Me today in a fresh way and receive all I have to give you. Follow Me My child!!! I love you!!!

John 21:3 “Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.”

V. 5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.”

V. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 

V. 22 Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”

Designed for Greatness

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child! Know that I am here with you no matter what. I see all these desires in your heart to do great things for Me. Never fear! I have designed you for greatness, and I will make sure this is what comes out of you. 

Continue to follow Me, walk in My ways and press in closer. I am doing such a mighty work in you I can only reveal it a little at a time or you would be in shock and disbelief.

You will step into the fullness of your destiny as you walk closely with Me. I will do it in and through you. Press in, walk with Me, and trust Me to do the work in you! I love you My child!!!

Ephesians 1:11-14 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
