When Things Seem Bleak

God's perspective 

My dear child,


Things before you are not as they seem. From outward appearance, the situation appears as overwhelming and ghastly. You see it as a great, immovable fortresses which are against My Kingdom purpose.


Come here, my love. Let me remove the blinders that are blocking your sight (2 Corinthians 3:16).


I’ve allowed these situations to awaken you from your complacency.


After all, it is the very dread of the future that has stirred you to run to Me. Can’t you see how this is already working together for your good (Romans 8:28)? Desperation is often the best incentive to get you into My Presence. Challenges achieve some of My very best work within you. Do not resist My working. Difficulties are My prescription to show you Who is truly important. 


In order for My life to shine brightly from the inside out, you need to know weakness, both physically and emotionally (John 3:30). Testings are not to be wished away quickly. Instead, these are the very situations that help to peel away false perceptions, so you can see My Life within you more clearly.


I am at work within you (Philippians 2:13). When you cry out to Me, you are mirroring My posture on earth (Hebrews 5:7). I am best seen from bended knee and moistened eyes.

You have need of endurance (Hebrews 10:36). Perseverance is the pathway to control over your wavering thoughts and emotions (Luke 21:19). Endurance and perseverance unearth the gems of godliness, kindness and love that I’ve placed within you (1 Peter 1:6-7). Patience is far more important to Me than you realize.  

You feel overwhelmed at the task before you. “We need a real touch of power in order for anything to truly be accomplished,” you’ve said. Yet, power is only perfected and truly effective through weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). The time has come for you to see this clearly. 

Allow My personality to spill out of you (John 7:38). I have tabernacled within you so that once again the Word can become flesh and dwell among those whom you influence (John 1:14). See your difficulties in this light and they are much easier to bear. I am praying for you (Romans 8:34).


My deepest love, Jesus
