Spending time with the Lord I heard him say this, and I pray it will bless you too:
Draw near, don’t hold back! Oh my child do not fear, I am not the accuser,
I am your father. I love you with a perfect, unfailing, everlasting love.
Who you are is very precious to me.
I call you into my presence to spend time with you.
Not to tell you what you’ve done wrong —
but to remind you of what Jesus did to make it right, to make you right in my sight.
I am longing for intimacy, trust, a conversation with you.
I want to tell you how I love you, and how pleased I am
with the good choices you’ve made, and how I have plans for you.
Plans to fill your future. I want to share myself with you,
to overwhelm you and fill you with my love.
There is nothing about you that surprises me, nothing I won’t forgive.
Do not let the lies of the enemy keep you from me.
Jesus prayed these words for those who will believe in him:
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; … I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
JOHN 17:20 & 23
