This is a Word I received during a time of reflection at a seminar on the Prophetic I attended a few months ago. I am sharing it in the hope that it will speak to someone who needs to hear it, as I did that day.
“My Presence is and brings beauty, no matter what your physical eyes may see. My Presence is and brings peace. Soak in My beauty and peace, while you can, whenever you can, and draw on that when you are assailed by the ugliness and violence of the enemy.
Create a sanctuary of My presence within your inner being, and your spirit can rest there, even in the midst of struggles and trials. Place reminders of beauties you have seen and experienced there. You can then draw those moments and experiences to your recall and use your remembrance and perceptions of them as tools to keep your awareness of My Presence alive and vital in that sanctuary, no matter what is going on in the outer world.
I am yours and you are Mine, and I will never forsake you or leave you. I AM – forever and always. Rest in that assurance, and rest in Me – in My beauty and peace and know that you are more deeply and truly loved than you can possibly imagine. The beauty you see around you is merely a shadow of the beauty I see in you. You are MINE, and what is mine, I KEEP! It is My task to win the battle, it is yours to rest in Me. Whenever you see great beauty, let it remind you of this truth and be a testimony to you of My love for you. It is for you. I am for you.
Any word or experience that tells you otherwise is false, there is no truth in it. It is the enemy trying to deceive you. I am yours and you ARE Mine. If I am for you, who can be against you? Hold this truth firmly in your heart, don’t let it be stolen from you.”
