5th May 2014 (Morning Prayer)
My little one, Do not be afraid to step out in faith and follow your Good Shepherd. Open your eyes and see the wonders of the Lord. Open your ears and listen to the gentle prompting you receive from the Holy Spirit. Open your heart completely so you can be fully immersed in the love of your Heavenly Father given to you by Me, His Son by the grace of the Holy Spirit. Put on your white linen garment in readiness for the Lord your God. Purify your thoughts from all self-seeking ways. Purify the words you speak. Speak less in haste. Take time to be still and wait upon the Lord. Pray for the gift of wisdom to help you be prudent and wise in the choices you make. Pray for the grace you need to temper the wild, impulsive side of your nature. Pray for the virtue of temperance. Just as gold and silver must be tempered in the furnace, so too, must you pass through the Refiner’s fire to purify you in thought, word and deed. Pray for courage and strength (the gift of fortitude) for you to last the long distance. Put on your spiritual armour. Look again at Ephesians 6:10-17. Do not rely on your own strength. Learn to be humble of heart and surrender yourself completely to the holy Will of God. Lean on Me and not on your own understanding. I remind you again – in the world you will have trouble; be brave for I have overcome the world. Live a life that is just – steeped in truth. I am the way, the truth and the life. Follow My way, live My truth and let your life be the living word of the Lord for others to follow. Do not bring attention to self. Work humbly in the background for the glory of God. Choose always the path of true holiness. Be holy as I, your Lord and God am holy.
