The Father says today, My grace-fountain is flowing freely over you this day. My default posture toward you is lovingkindness and mercy even when you kick against the goad of My leading. I am not some cosmic ogre, glowering over you with a grimace of displeasure, just waiting to squash you like a bug – those who project that image have Me all wrong. I am your shelter, not only when you get it right, but when you falter as well. My hand is upon you, not just your spirit man but your soul as well. I am looking out for you emotionally, in the decisions of your will and the struggles of your mind. I am ever extended in compassion to you and consistently drawing your attention to the yoke easy and the burden light. You’ve asked Me, “Lord, do things have to be this hard?” No, they don’t. When struggle defines your life, remember My word says, “the way of the transgressor is hard.” Make the adjustment and know relief will come.
The Father says things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different, you must do something different. Come to the negotiating table of My presence, says God. I am here. I am listening. I’m not ignoring you or secretly nodding in approval at your pain. I am ever shifting the axis of your situation to bring you under the shadow of My embrace, into the protective covering of the wings of the cherubim where you will find rest and respite from the terrible troubles and frustrations that rage in the outer courts of human misunderstanding. I am Love, and I am the personification of constant care. The fierce and brutal assaults against you do not originate with any plan I have for you. Come to Me this day and rest your head on My shoulders. Climb up in My lap and let your Daddy make it all better. You are My child, and My embrace is here just for you this day.
