Turn at my rebuke; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “in returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Listen, as I speak to you in the depths of your soul. The silence conducts My message to you. Honor time apart spent in silent waiting. Keep watch with Me awhile. In faith, come to Me, and I will be with you. Do not listen to the voice of doubt. Banish doubt. Why would a Creator not speak to His creation? Why would He create and be silent, as if in hiding from the ones He holds beloved?
You are My Beloved, as you love Me and keep coming back in faith, hope, and love. If someone no longer answered your call, you would not continue calling for long. If someone stopped speaking to you, you would cease attempting to engage the person in conversation. Yet, you keep coming to Me, because I am real and present. I do speak to you deep within.
I am not in hiding from you, but I await your coming to Me in anticipation. I delight in you, My child. You are My created, chosen one. I do not put up with you out of a benevolent nature. I am Love, and I create out of love, and I create love. You are loved, and you come from love, and you will return to Love. This is truth to cling to.
Come home to Me regularly. Rest in your true nature. Rest in the presence of One who knows best. Rest in the presence of loving acceptance. Be restored. Renew yourself in truth. Allow what was to fall away, and what is to come forth. I Am. I am within you, and I will be forevermore.
