Daily Read - 1 Chronicles 16:37-18:17; Romans 2:1-24; Psalm 10:16-18; Proverbs 19:8-9
Or perhaps you despise the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience;
because you don't realize that God's kindness is intended to lead you to turn from your sins.
Complete Jewish Bible
Today My voice comes in quiet stillness as on the wings of a cool mountain breeze. You must intentionally purpose to hear Me today or you will miss the message. When you search with your whole heart, you will find Me in the still small voice. I am speaking, but you must listen for the whisper.
Parts of you still cannot grasp or fathom the depths of My kindness and mercy. Logic and reason persuade you to dismiss the fact I love you and paid a great price for your life. I do not use the methodology of the world to correct My children; it is through kindness I lead you to repentance.
Condemnation, guilt, and shame always work together with the sole purpose of keeping you locked down in hopelessness. If you believe their lies, you will have a difficult time turning from your sins to receive My forgiveness because you will believe your sins are beyond My forgiveness.
Do not allow another minute of your life to waste away into the bottomless pit of unworthiness, but turn and run to the mercy of the cross. Listen for My voice that whispers, "I love you." Give ear to the song that comes on the wings of the breeze calling you into the kindness of My embrace.
Take the time to quiet your soul in My presence and allow Me to overwhelm you with kindness. Soak in the waters of My revelatory love and bask in the cleansing flow of My blood. Do not move from this place until you receive what is already yours....forgiveness. Give Me the liberty to complete My work in you. Resist interference from your flesh that tries to divert your attention away from forgiveness and back onto sin.
It is very important to wait in this moment and allow yourself to experience My kindness. Give your attention to the inner voice of My Spirit calling for you to surrender and receive.
Lord Jesus, I take the next several minutes to seek Your voice. I submit my mind, will, emotions, and body to Your Lordship and command all interference to cease. I choose to quiet myself in Your presence that I may experience Your hand of kindness leading me to the heart of the Father's love. I stand still and submit in this moment to receive everything You choose to pour into me. Amen!
Believe, receive, and be free!
