I recently received this encouraging Word from the Lord and wanted to share it. It's about how the Lord sees you... He has a plan.
I have known you from before the foundations of the world. I know the thoughts I think about you, and I have called you to do great things in My name. Your life and the trials you have faced are not a coincidence and the events, no accident. Take comfort in knowing I have seen it all—everything you've been through and all that's happened to you.
Look at your life the way I see it, from a higher perspective. The small things fit together into a larger picture, and all are part of a grand plan.
Remember, you are created in the image of your Heavenly Father. There is nothing on this planet more important to My Father than people. Every soul matters, each life counts—including those who are not yet born. That is why the demonic realm is so active in attacking, persecuting, and working overtime to derail the plans and destinies My Father has for each of you. Remember, in Me; you are complete. That means nothing missing—nothing left undone.
His plans for you are good
I finished my work long ago. Therefore, abide in the realm where "it is finished" and remain in Me. You accomplish this by keeping your eyes focused steadfastly upon Me. I will lead you in the rhythms of life and help you move into the place I prepared for you. Trust Me and remember, I am only a thought away. Know that I long to help you, not hurt or neglect you by ignoring your cries for help.
You can trust Me. It is Me, after all, who flows through you as you yield your spirit to Me. I will not violate my Word nor the plans or purposes My Heavenly Father has for you. I am for you, not against you. My greatest desire is to see that you have the best of everything and prosper in all you do. For in so doing, you glorify My Heavenly Father and Me. Moreover, in that glory, you attract people who are desperately searching for the very things the world promises but cannot deliver.
A time and a reason
As with Esther, there was a time and a reason for her destiny. I am no respecter of persons, so the same is true for you. What I have done for one, I will do for all. And because you desire a relationship with Me, you are close to My heart.
Look around you—at the people in your life, the circumstances you face, and the situations you've overcome. None of it was by accident, none of it a coincidence.
All of it will be used for your greatest good. There is nothing I cannot do. In faith, you must believe that every challenge you face will be used for something far greater than anything you might have lost. I AM that good, that powerful, and that present.
