Note from Neeter: This post is purposely and directly excerpted from Frances J. Roberts’ Come Away My Beloved. As always, I post in hopes to inspire and encourage you to move closer towards the goal God has set before you~ read and be blessed!
THE CALL of LOVE
Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?”
He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.”
He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”
JOHN 21: 15
FAITH and ACTION~ “...In your daily walk, you shall be victorious only to the degree that you trust Me. I can help you only as you ask. I will meet you at every point where you put action alongside your prayers . Only as you walk will the waters of adversity be parted before you. Overburdened as the world is with trouble and sickness, I need those who have proved My sufficiency in everyday, personal experience to lead the suffering to the fountains of life. I need those who have found Me as burden-bearer to help bring deliverance to the oppressed. Never begrudge time given to chronic complainers, but recognize in each encounter the opportunity to speak a word that may lead to their liberation…see him as what he can be if he gives himself unreservedly to Me.”
“If anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.”
JOHN 9: 31
SAFETY in GOD’S WILL~“My will is not a place, but a condition.
Do not ask Me where and when, but ask Me how. You will discover blessing in every place, and any place, if your spirit is in tune with Me. No place or time is more hallowed than another when you are truly in love with Me.
I direct every motion of your life, as the ocean bears a ship. Your will and intelligence may be at the helm, but divine providence and sovereignty are stronger forces . You can trust Me, knowing that any pressure I bring to bear upon your life is initiated by My love, and I will not do even this except as you are willing and desire.
Many a ship has sailed from port to port with no interference from Me, because Strong Will has been at the wheel. Multitudes of pleasure cruises go merrily on their ways, untouched by the power of My hand.
But you have put your life into My keeping, and because you are depending on Me for guidance and direction, I shall give it.
Move on steadily, and know that the waters that carry you are the waters of My love and My kindness, and I will keep you on the right course.”
