SHEPHERD: I will, I have, I will always be there for you. My Hand is upon you for good. I am aware of your every need. Your part is to place your hand in Mine and trust Me. I will be all that is necessary to bring forth the strength and beauty of My Presence in Your life.

Your face will be aglow with My strength, power and love. My Spirit will sustain you as it has already. Victory is yours in every area of your life – healing, restoration and wholeness in Me.

My timing is perfect. Rest in knowing My Hand is upon you for good - for the glory of My Name. I will be revered through what people see accomplished in you Amen.

GOD'S WORD: 1 John 4:16-21 " And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love[a]turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear [b]brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love's complete perfection].

We love Him, because He first loved us. If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother ]in Christ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen. And this command (charge, order, injunction) we have from Him: that he who loves God shall love his brother believer] also.

1 John 5:1-5 "Everyone who believes (adheres to, trusts, and relies on the fact) that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah) is a born-again child of God; and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of Him (His offspring). By this we come to know (recognize and understand) that we love the children of God: when we love God and obey His commands (orders, charges)[when we keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and His teaching]. For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous). 4 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]?

SHEEP: We carry in us the key to all the treasures of heaven. It is the spirit of prayer to the One who is good – He opens Heaven and the Kingdom of God within us.

Just as the sun unceasingly shines it's light and warmth so our Heavenly Father wants to warm the hearts of His children - to fill us with the light of His love. Let us not hold back with unbelief but surrender to Him - our reason for being!
