SHEPHERD: I am coming and you will see and experience My Hand of mercy and power in behalf of My needy ones - spirit, soul and body. I will place you both where I shall have you and you will joy in knowing you are in the will of your Master fulfilling His purposes for you both.
Joy is yours. Take no thought of anything else but what I have for you. Leave all your concerns with Me. I will work them out in you. You'll see! This too will humble you.
Take no thought for tomorrow. Live for each day walking the path I have chosen for you, being in the will of Your Master.
SHEEP: I prayed about struggle with my weight. He said:
SHEPHERD: Leave everything to me. Those pounds will melt away. Concern yourself no more. Step by step, day-by-day moment by moment - I will lead you.
SHEEP: Then I read:
Christ in Me 2 Corinthians 13:5 Know ( thoroughly and by an ever increasing experience that Christ lives in you!
GOD'S WORD: Ephesians 3:16-19 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
[That you may really come] to know [practically, [a]through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses [b]mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] [c]unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and [d]become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!"
SHEEP: A prayer that the Father would grant the spirit of revelation of the richness of His love and power. He would strengthen us with might by His Spirit so that Christ may dwell in our hearts by faith. I will cry to Him and wait on Him to perfect His work in me. My heart is His dwelling place. I am crucified with Christ, I live no more – Christ lives in me!
