You have wondered in your heart why I have been silent. I have not been silent, Dear One, but the cares of this world have been drowning Me out.
I AM leading you out of this loud place and drawing you close to Me. As a mother soothes her newborn babe, so I AM quieting you with My Love.
This stillness you are experiencing is My Presence. In this quietness and confidence is your strength.
I AM keeping you hidden, Beloved. The devil has gone about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. But you need not fear, My Child. My Spirit is drawing you close and teaching you to wait upon Me.
You are being revived, healed and restored under the Shadow of My wings. Lay back in My Everlasting Arms, Dear One. Rest in My Holy Stillness, My Love, as I renew your strength.
Listen for My still small Voice. I AM He who is gentle and humble at heart. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You are My Beloved and I am yours. Be still, and know that I AM your God.
