“Can a mother forget her nursing child? Neither have I forgotten you.
Even to your grey hairs I have been carrying you and showcasing you as My own,” says The LORD.
“I have been giving you the assurance of things hoped for, for I AM your assurance. I have been giving you the evidence of the things not yet seen, because I AM the evidence of those things not yet seen.
I have been giving you visions and dreams as evidence of the work of My Spirit. I have been giving you signs and wonders throughout your life that have been the result of your confident faith in the Word That Is Sent.
I have been sending forth My Word to you and it has never been cancelled out, nor has it ever fallen to the ground.
My Grace has been sufficient for you in your times of worry. I call you out of your worry. I call to you to return to your first love; I call you to the repentant heart that you have been resisting, thinking that you have the right to your feelings being more important than your calling.
Then why do you ask for the things that don’t satisfy? Why do you spend your money on that which is not bread?
Why do you enslave yourself with those things that “justify” your lack of knowledge of My Presence?
There is nothing in your life that is hidden from My Sight. The remnant that returns to Me will be like those who were hired to work in the vineyard.
Many agreed to work through the heat of the day to earn a day’s wages. The master of the vineyard found more to work in his fields, promising to pay them a fair wage, and they agreed.
He then found more who were willing to work in his fields, with the same assurance of a fair wage. Finally, he added more to work in the final hour of the day.
Do you believe that I AM not fair to the calling I have given you?
Do you really believe that I can’t see where your heart really is?
For I have been your sun and shield in the heat. I have given you grace and glory in the trials you have been through.
No good thing have I withheld from those who walk uprightly with Me,” says The LORD.
God has set in motion mechanisms in His Kingdom that have been working with such powerful momentum.
There is nothing that can stop His intent toward you. You have to believe that He is the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
The “key word” here is Diligently.
Repent now, and believe; that it is God Who is calling you.
He Who calls you is faithful; and He will do it.
