I see you struggling, Little One. But this is not My will for you. There is a REST for you, My Child.
I AM your Life Preserver in the muddy waters of this world.
I AM the Lord of your rest, Beloved.
I AM the Lord of the Sabbath. My rest is no longer a single day, but I have become for you a Resting Place that lasts FOREVER and a day. My Spirit in you shall cause you to be buoyant and float above the enemy’s tsunamis.
I AM He who sees what you will face BEFORE it happens. As you trust in Me and rest, I shall cause you to rise above every circumstance.
I AM your Life Guard and I AM with you always. My Everlasting Arms are always underneath you. Do not fear, Beloved. Be of good cheer. Rest in My Love. I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
