“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” – Jeremiah 31:25
The Father says, “Before I say more, I want you to learn this, to meditate on this. I am not indifferent. I have not shut My ears to your cry for help. I am like a mother whose ears are so sensitive to her baby’s voice. Even in the deepest sleep her ears never sleep. They are listening to every move, every breath, every pain, every struggle. If a mother’s ear is so sensitive, how about Me? I have the most perfect pitch. My ears are always being tuned to all. I can hear you, and at the same time, I can hear all who are crying to Me to rescue them from their afflictions.
I have seen all your afflictions. Am I not mighty to save from them all? You look up trying to find Me. I am not somewhere far, far away from you. I am around you. You are surrounded by My presence. I go with you wherever you go.
Look at the Israelites. Did I leave them by themselves in the wilderness? My presence was with them. By day I went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them during the day. And at night I was in a pillar of fire to light their way. As I went with them, who had an old covenant, will I leave you alone with your struggles now, who lives in a new covenant? Far be it!
Why I had to put this in the beginning of My letter to you? I want you to understand Me. If earthly parents give so much attention to their child, I am more than just earthly. I know about parenting. I have seen many lives. I have seen parents failed to keep their duty. I saw so many abandoned little lives. Every life which was abandoned by earthly parents, will never be abandoned by Me.
I know how to comfort. I know how to hug. I know how to wipe the tears and encourage. I never punish. Never! I can correct, I can advise but not punish. Was I angry with Adam? Did I beat him with a stick for choosing the wrong direction? Because of his choice he had to go through what you are going through right now. But in the middle of his withdrawal, I saw the potential. I saw My Son on the Cross. Because of the tree they had to be withdrawn from Eden, and because of the Tree, the Cross, you are drawn back and all the gates are opened to come and enjoy everlasting life.
Now what? Shall you continue licking your wounds or shall you run to Me who has all the answers to all your questions? The strength can be found only in Me. Peace can be found only in Me. Your Security can be found only in Me. If someone failed you in the past and that still hurts enormously, there is the One who will never reject you, never weary you, never abandon you, Me – your heavenly Father. Strengthen yourself in Me. Take My Word, run with it and it will refresh you on your journey.
Even though your troubles overwhelm you with anguish, you can still do something about it. You could continue dwelling on the past and on what life did to you, or you decide to delight and cherish the Word I have given you, believing it and trusting in My faithfulness towards you. This is My word and now it is your choice!”
Shalom & Blessings!
