Allow Your Heart
For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
—2 Corinthians 3:17 NLT
You yearn for peace and for blessing, child. Your heart must seek mine. Your decisions will be the right ones if you commit them to me and desire me before anything else. Place your will on my altar as your most precious offering. I gave up my will for you when I died for you. Now I long for yours to be given in love. Now I seek yours. Trust that what I shall do is best for you. Believe that I am powerful enough to do anything and everything. Believe that nothing is impossible in my hand. Then leave all with me with thanksgiving in your heart. Give me your tired heart, your struggles, your hard days, your thoughts, your whole being–all in you that cries out to be free. Be confident of my safety and complete protection. When you give all to me, I am not only the Redeemer of your past and the Lord of your present, but also the Lord of your future. It is in my hand. You cannot see the future, but you can trust me for it. Right now, child, if you could see all of the future, it would either be too painful or too amazing for you to comprehend its importance. I will reveal it all as I determine. Have faith that I have loved you with my everlasting love and drawn you in my unfailing kindness. If you accept my heart and my will, you will know joy. You will know peace when I have all of your life in my hands. Look to me the author and the finisher of your faith. Allow your heart to be molded by mine, and your heart will be free.
