Do not harden your hearts as the children of Israel did in the wilderness.
Do not resist the work of My Spirit in your life at this time – do not resist My wooing, My drawing, for I love you I love you. I love you with an everlasting love. The plans I have are to prosper you, to give you HOPE and a future.
I am drawing you closer to Myself – do not turn away and follow your own path.
Cleanse me with hyssop and I shall be clean, wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Create in me a pure heart O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the JOY of your salvation and grant me a WILLING spirit to sustain me. (Psalm 51: 7, 10-12)
Allow My Word to penetrate your very innermost being – so that the Rivers of Living Water might flow. Spring up O well!!
For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even the dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
My Word is truth. My Word brings abundant life. My Word has Resurrection Power. Look to Me, yes cry out to Me.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of PRAISE to our God. (Psalm 40:2-3)
Look up and cry out to me. Be clothed in My righteousness. I love you my people. Do not harden your hearts. I have called you. I have redeemed you. I have chosen you to be a holy people. Walk on My highway of Holiness. I love you My people.
