“I desire a close relationship and partnership with you, one where you lean upon My strength to carry you through.
I have told you that My yoke is easy and My burden is light. I lighten your load when you choose to cast every care on Me.
Do not allow the cares and worries to shift the weight over on your shoulders, otherwise you would tire out and become exhausted.
I will adjust the weight, so that you may bear it and come out with the victory over them. I AM well able to carry what you can not.
We must stay in harmony, step by step, you can not be found dragging behind or racing ahead of Me. Do not be frustrated with life, but rather choose My effectiveness, you will find less struggle, and in so doing you will not be self-sufficient but God dependent.
If you operate under feeling self-sufficient, you then become prideful and will be easily deceived by our enemy. His desire is for you to be weary of waiting for My help.
He wants you to turn again to your own arm of the flesh, and to be under your own strength. I AM faithful to you and My Word, I will keep you, as I have in times past and proven Myself trustworthy.
I will not let you down now in your hour of need. Will you not trust Me now in this new testing and trouble? For I will cause you to ride upon new heights and will restore to you all that has been lost or seemingly destroyed.
You know Me, I AM the arms that you can lean upon, do not lean on your understanding, it will not hold you. My care for you at times of testing are greater by far than you will ever know.
You may not understand at this moment what it is that I AM working out for you, but I AM always ahead of you in preparation.
I require you to pull from My grace daily and when it seems darkest, to remember that My Light never goes out. My Light keeps the dark from overtaking you.
I AM there with you, whispering words of love and healing. You will experience for yourself My deep intensive care, for that I shower on those who have been in a furnace of affliction.
Trust Me, even now, cast down the strongholds of anxiety, worry, despair, discouragement, and doubt. Rehearse My Word over your life, knowing that I will supply your every need.
Stop the lies and question of the enemy, that try to make you not rely on your only Hope. I want you to be free, not encumbered by so many things that hinder your ears from hearing Me, and entangle your mind with webs of deceit and untruths.
Don’t stand aloof and back off from Me, you must come close so that I can minister to you in a greater degree. I will revive you and restore the joy of your salvation!”
“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit. Then will I teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted and return to You,” Psalm 51:12-13.
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the LORD with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the LORD and turn [entirely] away from evil,” Proverbs 3:5-7.
“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you. Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully,” 1 Peter 5:6-7.
