Sometimes when life gets difficult and we can’t feel or sense God’s presence, it can be easy to think He has forgotten us, even though in our minds, we know He’s promised not to leave us.
When we find ourselves faced with the temptation to compromise; when we lose our jobs; when we are mocked for our faith and even find persecution coming from within our own families, how will we respond?
In our natural circumstances, will we choose to trust our supernatural God to take care of our needs? Will we take a stand for Jesus, or will find ourselves ashamed?
Please read and be encouraged as God shares His love for you and invites you into a deeper relationship with Him.

This flowed out while I was in prayer listening to the 2016 OneThing Conference with Misty Edwards singing, “Only A Shadow/He’s Alive”:
“I have not forgotten you. I have not forgotten you. Don’t ever believe that I have forgotten about you because it takes longer for Me to answer your prayers than you expect. I have you in the palm of My hand. I will never leave you nor forsake you, not will I ever, ever forget about you or leave you helpless. You are My child. I won’t leave you hopeless or forsaken. I won’t leave you to your own devices in this world. I won’t leave you to your own devices in your situations.
I have given you the keys, the authority and the wisdom on how to handle your problems. I have given you the authority over your problems. Use it. Do not be afraid to speak My Word. Do not be afraid to declare My Word over your situations, and take a stand for righteousness when it is necessary. Do not fear retribution. I will take care of you. Do not fear taking a stand in My Name, whether it be in your own family or the workplace. You will have to. There are times you will have to take a stand for what’s right, and it may cost you your position.
Are you willing to go there and take that stand? What if it means losing the provision you have for your family? Will you take that stand and trust Me to take care of you? Are you willing to make the choice to stand for Me NO MATTER WHAT?
I already have your provision in store. I already have the plans in place to bring you through any situation. Are you willing to trust Me? Are you willing to take a stand? The world will only get worse. Are you willing to take a stand for Me in your families, in the workplace, or anywhere it is necessary in society and the culture in which you live in today?
You cannot have the mindset that I have forgotten about you, or wonder where I am. You have to be solid in My Word and solid in your understanding of My character and Who I am. Otherwise, you will continue to waver between two thoughts and opinions of Me and my character. You are living in a day and age that you cannot afford to not understand Who I am and where I cross the line as to what I will and will not do to My children.
My love does not abandon you and just allow you to wallow in sufferings. My love is kind, long-suffering, patient. I do not wish for you to suffer. I see your pain and I will help you. Renew your mind to My Word and your understanding of My character and My love for you. I do not wish for you to suffer. I don’t want you to believe that or think that way of Me any longer. Satan likes to watch you suffer. I am nothing like him.
Renew your mind to understand My character and Who I am. Spend time in My Presence and in My Word, and as you pursue Me, you will be amazed what you will learn and what I will reveal to you. Don’t get into condemnation. I don’t want you to feel condemned. Simply rejoice at what I show you and enjoy our new relationship as we go deeper and deeper together.”
