“Still your heart, My Love. I AM here with you now.
Let My Peace override the fear that threatens to consume you.
Be still and quiet and know that I AM God. I AM He who is your Comforter.
The world does not know Me, but you know Me. The world cannot receive Me, Beloved, but you have received the Spirit of truth.
My Spirit dwells in your heart. Can you comprehend this, Dear One?
The Almighty God lives in you. What can stand against you?
Let My Joy be your strength. I AM singing songs of Victory over you. No longer will they call you Deserted nor your land be called Desolate, for I take great delight in you, My Warrior Bride.
For your Maker is your Husband; the LORD of Heaven’s Armies is His name!
I AM your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth. Fear nothing, My Child, for you are the Bride of Christ.
I have betrothed you to Me forever, in the Righteousness of Christ and in justice, in loving devotion and compassion.
You belong to Me, Precious One. I AM the Victorious Warrior in your midst, exulting over you with joy. In this day, you shall no longer call Me ‘my Master’, but you shall call Me ‘my Husband’; My Delight is in you.”
