Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 1 John 3:18-19 NIV
My Children is one of the most affectionate names that I love to use when I refer to you. The most intimate is a new name that My Son will reveal to you when you enter into My glory. The one I use most often is by your given name.
My Child there is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Yet, I find that your heart can be easily troubled by the enemy. Condemning thoughts make it hard for you to believe and receive that I love you. Actions not aligned with your intent for good create a barrier that resists the free flow of our love for one another. Grace, for you My Child, is far more abundant than your barricade of rejecting thoughts.
When you fail to live up to the standards that you have established for yourself, you feel less perfect. When you blow it and pursue your own selfish desires, you lose your peace that resides in our presence. When you have a goal that you did not reach, you feel that you have disappointed Me. When your actions bring guilt and condemnation, you feel timid and frail to enter into My presence.
I am not surprised by your thoughts and actions. None of what just happened has caught me unaware. I am not conflicted about how to proceed in transforming you into the image of My Son. I know everything about you…and I still love you immensely. Did you hear what I just said?
Come to Me! Let My grace put your heart at rest. Look into My eyes and see love pouring forth to you. Read My truth in the Word and allow renewed faith and boldness to arise in your heart. Even in your fear and guilt move forward to My voice that we may talk with one another. My Words are truth and life for the feeding of your spirit to grow strong. Listen to My voice and receive the truth that I do not condemn you. Comfort your heart My Child and be at rest and peace in My presence.
Whispers from Your Father, God
