“Beloved. You don’t have to run any more. Come and rest in Me, My Child.
You do not need to strive any longer. Because you rest does not mean your Abba Father is not working in your life. It is quite the opposite, Dear One.
My ways are not the world’s ways. They say you must strive and work to reach perfection.
Your perfection is only found in Me, My Child. I have accomplished the PERFECT WORK at the Cross.
I have begun a good work in you, and I will perfect it. The Holy Spirit in you works as you rest.
You are changed effortlessly through My Spirit who dwells in your heart.
As you rest in My Arms and cast your eyes upon your Savior, you are being transformed from glory to greater glory.
Who you were yesterday is not who you are today or what you shall be tomorrow.
Come and rest, My Child. Put yourself completely in My Hands.
I AM the Author and the Perfecter of your faith. You are not your own, but have been bought with a price.
I AM changing you from the inside out. No more stress, Dear One. It is always the devil who “drives” you.
My Love for you is like a mother and her baby. She holds the baby close and the baby blissfully sleeps, not even knowing how much it is growing and developing and maturing.
This is what is happening with you, Precious One. No more striving to reach your Papa God. You are already here in My Hand.
Transformation is like a butterfly in its cocoon. The caterpillar is just “being” as it changes from glory to glory.
It is not doing anything but resting in that cocoon. You are cocooned in My Love, Beloved.
Transformation is all My doing. Look, Beloved, and be radiant! The world shall be amazed.
You are emerging a beautiful glorious butterfly, made in My image for My Glory!
I AM am releasing you into your freedom!”
