Confess and praise the Lord for He is fearful and wonderful and for the wonder of your birth! Wonderful are His works and that your inner self knows right well (Psalm 139:14). The Lord has done so many wonders and you are one of His greatest!
One Who Searches
Seek the Lord and crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek and require His face and His Presence forevermore (Psalm 105:4). As you grow older, you will see all the more reason why you need His help to get through circumstances and to resist temptation.
The Lord will guide you in His truth and faithfulness and teach you, for He is the God of your salvation. So wait for Him expectantly as long as you need to in every situation to get His direction (Psalm 25:5). For the Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth. He will fulfill the desires of those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He also will hear their cry and will save them (Psalm 145:18,19).
Messenger of Love
The Spirit of the Lord was sent to preach the Gospel to the meek, poor, and afflicted; He was sent to bind up and heal your broken heart, to proclaim liberty to the physical and spiritual captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, to comfort all who mourn. To give you an ornament of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a heavy, burdened and failing spirit...that YOU may be called an oak of righteousness (lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice and right standing with God), the planting of the Lord that He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1-3).
