1 Thessalonians 5:5 (VOICE) For you are all children of light. You are sons and daughters of the day. We are not created of night, nor are we owned by darkness.
Beloved, I AM the light and I live within you. Where there is light, no darkness can remain. Nor can light disguise itself as darkness, nor should it want to. So shine brightly, beloved. Be an emissary of light – vibrant and alive – and unafraid of changing the landscape around you.
There is nothing to fear from light. As you walk in truth, you know it only brings life. So even when things brought to light feel ugly or broken, simply know that the light has not caused it to be that way, but rather the light has refused to allow it to remain hidden.
For like lancing a wound, sometimes that which is wrong must be completely exposed to begin to bring it to rights. So embrace the truth and the light that brings it. Be not afraid of human reactions, but rather know I AM pleased as you walk as a reflection of Me.
1 Thessalonians 2:19 (TPT) For what will be our confident hope, our exhilarating joy, or our wonderful trophy that we will boast in before our Lord Jesus at his appearing? It is you!
Beloved, keep your eyes on the prize. The greatest gift you can give Me, is to lead more of My children home. You can waste years stockpiling material goods, yet none of that stays with you when you pass. You can spend decades flowing in My gifts, and yet all of them will eventually cease – only love remains.
So love well, and love with intention. Love the unlovable, and those who seem “fine.” Be steadfast in your love that all may know My heart. Indeed show your love for Me by doing so – even when it’s hard and you least feel able to. Dig deep, press into Me, and love. Spend time on that which truly matters, and on that which remains. Love people, beloved, and love them well.
1 Thessalonians 5:24 (VOICE) For the God who calls you is faithful, and He can be trusted to make it so.
Beloved, I AM El Aman, the Faithful God. I AM true to My word. I watch over it to see it fulfilled. My promises are YES and AMEN. They are settled. They are done. You can rely on Me. Others may have let you down, but beloved, I am not them. Trust Me. I will bring it to pass.
Trust requires belief, and I AM a rewarder of those who believe that I AM and who diligently seek Me. So simply keep your eyes fixed on Me. I know I say this again and again, but the world is vying for your attention and the enemy desires to distract you – pulling, pulling from every direction – so quietly, again I say, “Keep your heart and eyes fixed on Me.”
Don’t be discouraged if your gaze has shifted – simply move it back. Beloved, I would rather you choose Me over and over a hundred times a day than that you blow it once and never try again. I understand, and I love you. Fix your gaze on me and trust.
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
