I am like a wondrous sign to many; You are my strong refuge. My mouth will be filled with Your praise and with Your glory all the day. Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength fails. For my enemies speak against me; and those who watch for my life take counsel together, saying, “God has forsaken him; pursue and catch him, for there is none to deliver him.” Psalm 71:7-11 MEV

A reflection is a momentary snapshot of what is, but it’s incapable of capturing what was or proof of what will be. I know you from beginning to end. I am transforming you, My child, into the image of My Son. I will not abandon you.

My words are trustworthy and true. I will remember you, even when you are not consciously remembering me. When you sleep, I watch over you. When you are busy with the cares of life, I am present in the concerns and conversations. When your stress rises and you act in anger, My forgiveness is already covering the matter. When you are old and possibly forgetful, You will always remain in the apple of My eye. My face is continually looking with pleasure in the direction of My children.

Your transformed life and words openly declare that I am a loving Father. Others see the favor of peace that covers you like a blanket. Hope springs forth out of you continually, even in the middle of your trials and storms. Your faith is a life preserver for others to find the safety of My rock and refuge. This faith is evident in the most troublesome of moments, giving light for those who are stumbling in the darkness of their own understanding.

Your story is wrapped up in My HIStory. I am not too busy to stay focused on your needs. I love those who hate you and who want to cause you harm. I am reaching out to those who are lost, that they may know me as Father, like you do. Stand strong with Me as we become the reflection of what they can become.

You are not forsaken. I am here, now and always.

Whispers from your Father, God
