Judges 6:23 The Lord said to [Gideon], “Peace! Do not be afraid. You are not going to die.”

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Isaiah 65:17 See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.

Psalm 112:1,3,9 Praise the Lord!

Psalm 68:3-4 But let the [uncompromisingly] righteous be glad; let them be in high spirits and glory before God, yes, let them [jubilantly] rejoice! 4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name, cast up a highway for Him Who rides through the deserts—His name is the Lord–be in high spirits and glory before Him!

As you devote yourself to the Lord to the fullest extent you can, and seek His guidance in the midst of turmoil and upheaval, may you trust in God to control the circumstances and the opinions around you in the way He chooses, accepting with humble obedience the turn of events as being from His hand for your good, and always remain attentive in your heart toward His Spirit. 1 Samuel 29

When the attacks of the enemy appear overwhelming and total, may you find strength in the Lord your God as you turn to Him for direction. 1 Samuel 30

May you always consider the condition of others as you go along your way, and show mercy when the need arises, giving compassion even where it does not appear you can be repaid, for the Lord will show you His favor as you show others His grace. 1 Samuel 30

May you trust in the promises you have received of God when you sought Him for direction, and know that even when your material resources are diminished, it is the hand of God that will be working to bring you the victory, though the battle lasts long, so that glory will be received by the Lord of lords. 1 Samuel 30

May you be determined in your heart and set in your will to persist in the battle until the victory is complete when you consider what the enemy has stolen, and how the captives are being treated. 1 Samuel 30

May you be generous with God’s abundant blessings and gracious to those within your influence, slighting none for lack of ability or involvement, but being fair and even-handed whether their influence can be helpful or not. 1 Samuel 30

May you recognize the paramount need to fear God rather than man, for man can only destroy the body, as they did with Jesus, whereas God is able to raise the body, incorruptible, if you have followed Him in truth and spirit, or destroy both body and soul, if you have rejected His salvation to seek after others. 1 Samuel 31

May you know that a kindness done in humility and purity of heart will be returned, for God will not overlook those who walk in the Spirit of His Son. 1 Samuel 31

May you be willing to pour upon Christ, the Anointed One, the richest of praise and most precious of worship from within your heart and out of the depths of your spirit, for by doing so, you will change the atmosphere around you. John 12

May you have the grace to see that those who obediently serve or work in ways different than you do are still providing acceptable service to the King. John 12

Do not disdain the simplicity of My way, My child. Do not dress it up in vanity or adorn it with what looks “right.” Time is short for the harvest, and you need merely to thrust the sickle in to gather My own to Me.
Lift Me up, My wavering worker, speak of Me, make much of Me, adore Me as My love for you prompts, for the undecided one to whom I have led you needs only to look unto Me to be saved. For so long they have looked elsewhere, and now I have brought you to them to point to Me, in simplicity rather than theology, in truth rather than tradition.
No exhausting preparation or fierce effort of will is needed, sparkling wit and overwhelming wisdom are not requirements; simply a pointing finger to know where to look, for the Spirit is upon you to anoint both – on you to testify and the other to receive the faith to believe.
Not all will respond, but all will be given the opportunity to hear and chose. Any rejection is not rejecting you, but is rejecting Me, so do not close down your heart or harden your soul against the pain, for I will not.
I will remain vulnerable despite the suffering of so many rejections by so many whom I love, and for whom I have done so much to rescue them from the destruction they have chosen. They need only to look to Me at any time before their final heartbeat, and I will receive them, so I will not turn My back on any who remain uncertain and undecided in their heart.
You will not know them by their actions, My precious one, but I know them each by their hearts. Do not let the ferocity of their words or the violence of their actions dissuade you, My willing one, for many broken and seeking hearts are defended by harsh and defensive outer shells. But My Spirit has full access to their hearts to speak whispers of love that they long to believe, needing only the testimony of your words to provide the witness they need to break through into the life of My salvation.
Speak My simple words of truth, My love, nothing more is needed.

May you watch for opportunities of service, allowing the Spirit to lead you to the ones He is directing you to, involving yourself in those of the most immediate need as the highest priority. John 12

May you honor the King for the works of the kingdom, letting your heart be drawn to know Him personally, lest you find yourself resisting the change He brings as He causes tradition to fall by fulfilling the forms that have been followed for so long. John 12

May you learn the word of God, reading it all and storing it in your memory, though understanding does not immediately follow, for as you bring in the summer and fall produce, storing it for winter, you will gain the wisdom from the Spirit to rightly divide the Word of Truth when the need arises. John 12

May you give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and His love endures forever. Psalm 118

May you cry to the Lord when you are in anguish because He will answer by setting you free, for who can be afraid when the Lord is with them – what can man do to you? Psalm 118

May you take refuge in the Lord and forsake any trust you put in man, even in princes. Psalm 118

May the Lord, Who is your strength and your song, your very salvation, help you when you are pushed back and about to fall, for though the powers which are against the Lord surround you like bees, you cut them off in the name of the Lord and they die out as quickly as burning thorns. Psalm 118

May shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous, proclaiming that the Lord’s right hand, lifted high, has done mighty things! Psalm 118

May the Lord lead your path upward toward life, like He does for those who are prudent, wise and discerning, as you walk in His victory and leave the grave behind. Proverbs 15:24

May the Lord establish your boundaries, protect your property, and strengthen your inheritance from all arrogant evil-doers, even as He does for the widow, though He roots up, tears down and utterly destroys the house of the proud. Proverbs 15:25

May the thoughts of your mind be pure and the words of your mouth be pleasant so that they may show the grace of God and be confirmed by the Lord as He takes delight in them. Proverbs 15:26
