I shall sustain you. I live so that you may live also, Dear One. You are Mine.
It is My desire that you not just merely survive, but have an abundant life to the fullest measure. Yes, this is truth according to My word. I want you to THRIVE.
Why are you carrying burdens that are not yours, Beloved? For too long, you have carried them on your own. You have not even noticed how burdened you are.
You are heavily laden with all the cares of this life. You are fearing the future when I have not given you this spirit of fear. Cast those burdens once and for all on My Strong Shoulders.
They were made to carry you and all those you bring to me. So pack your bags one last time and give them to Me for good. Even to your old age and gray hairs I AM He, I AM He who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. I shall NEVER let the righteous be forsaken. I shall NOT give you over to the desire of the enemy, but I will restore you.
I will not let you slip, for I will bear the weight. I shall restore your years and your health. I shall restore your joy for you bear My Name. And My JOY shall be your strength.
