I heard, “Fear not, you are coming out of this wilderness leaning on your Beloved. From rags to riches is your story. From a dry parched desert into the King’s Garden of Life.”
“Beloved. You are coming out of this present wilderness leaning on your Beloved. My Favor is surrounding you like a Shield.
My Blessings are falling down upon you like Rain. You have come to the King’s Garden. In the Brightness of the King’s countenance is Life; and My Favor is as a cloud of the Latter Rain.
My Face is never turned away from you, My Child. I AM always smiling upon you. I AM your Sun and Shield. Upon you I bestow Favor and Honor.
NO good thing do I withhold from you who walk in My Righteousness. Gaze upon My Holiness. Gaze upon the Brightness of My Face and not upon the darkness of this world.
Lean not to your own understanding or on the wisdom of the world. Lean on your Savior, My Bride. Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I AM doing a new thing, now it shall spring forth, do you perceive it?
like Rain is falling upon you. I have beautified you with salvation. You are My Beloved and I AM yours. I withhold no good thing from you.
The King is smiling upon you for you are Mine . Rays of Light and Life bathe you in Glory. I have come into My Garden, My Bride.
I have gathered My Myrrh and My Spices. You are dripping with sweet smelling myrrh, the token of My unchangeable Love.
You are a sweet fragrance of Christ. Hear the rushing Sound of Many Waters. Eat, O Friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O My Beloved.
Feast on the abundance of My House and drink from the River of My Delights. All that I have is yours.”
