The Father says today, I am not angry with you, and I’m not punishing you. The enemy whispers and tells you I am holding out on you, but beloved everything I conceivably could give to you was totally and utterly poured out in your life 2000 years ago. I see your weakness, and I am answering with My mercy. I am not some wrathful being on a distant mountaintop hurling lightning bolts of displeasure upon helpless humanity below. If ever I was who men assume Me to be the earth and all creation would be vaporized in a moment. I not only give to you and bless you daily and moment by moment, but I even give life and breath to the heathen and those who shake their fist in My face. I am Love personified. That is who I am and what I do continually. I rain on the just and the unjust. I am not spiteful, and I never toy with you or put on you that which the Cross provided for the removal of. I am your Healer, your Salvation, and your Provision – not one-day – someday, but now. Enter into that truth and wrap yourself in its comfort as I move to radically bless you in this season.
I’ve heard your groaning, and I have seen the grief that has consumed you in the night. You’ve asked Me and asked Me and asked Me, and I’ve heard you, so begin now to thank Me, for guess what? The check is in the mail. My provision for every possible need you might have is on its way to you stamped by the postmaster of heaven with My promise certified not by the fact that you earned anything but by the truth of the shed blood of Calvary. Sanctify your conscience to that reality. When I see the blood, I am satisfied on your behalf. I’m not looking for some moral quality or some level of religious performance allegedly required before I will move in your life. What can your fasting do to move My hand beyond what the Cross has provided? What can all those self-imposed restrictions and burdens provoke My hand to make available to you that the nails and the crown of thorns did not make possible? I say to you that your righteousness is in Me. I move in your life not because of who you are or what you have done but because of who I AM and what was done for you on the Cross two millennia ago. Rest in that. Let that truth work in you as you receive the full saturation of My entire promise this day made manifest to address every deficit you are facing.
