I saw a Believer. He was sitting at the side of a Great River. He had no peace in his heart.
He was sitting in the dust, head down, dejected and thirsty. I saw Jesus was standing in the River, beckoning him to come in. It was the the River of Shalom Peace flowing from The Throne of God and The Lamb.
“Beloved. The devil is attempting to steal your Peace. The spirit of fear has gripped your heart and your heartbeat is out of sync with Mine.
Do not let your heart be troubled; do not be afraid. Come with Me, My Child. Follow Me into the River of Shalom Peace.
Allow Me to take the lead by The Spirit. You will not drown in your sorrows here, but I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand.
Surrender all your cares and enjoy being immersed in My Living Waters. Come into the Mighty Mighty Flow. In the River we are One. In Me, you live and move and have your being.
My Living Waters shall cover you. I have promised that My Glory shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.
In My River, you shall breathe again. In My River, you will find peace from the storms of life. I shall renew and refresh you once again.
I shall flood your heart with My Joy. It is flowing now. Streams in the desert. Rejoice in the River of Shalom.
Come, Beloved, for the Joy of The LORD is your strength. These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
SHALOM: Completeness, wholeness, peace, full of well being, health and prosperity
