Rejoice, Tell, Listen, Trust! July 17 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To my cherished child, who I love so tenderly,
I know that worry about the future can consume you and keep you from hearing My voice. I know that just saying “don’t worry” isn’t sufficient. So here’s what I want you to do:
First, rejoice in Me over all things. Make a conscious decision of your will to rejoice in Me. That means to count this particular situation as today’s opportunity for pure joy, knowing that it is bringing you ever more closer to Me so that you can know I’m in it, I’m with you, I’m working it out for the good and you can absolutely trust Me!
Then, tell Me the desires of your heart. Of course I already know, but it’s for your benefit to know that I listen. Then ask Me what I’m thinking about you and this situation… then listen to Me.
Then write down what I tell you and thank Me for My love, care, provision and protection.
Then, I promise, My peace, the Peace of God, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus because that’s where you are… in Christ Jesus! But, don’t stop there!
Then, My dearly-loved child, whenever you’re tempted to worry about this situation again, instead, think about (remind yourself, renew your mind with) what I have told you. Think about the truth of who I am, My love for you and My promise that I am for you. Remember these pure, lovely, excellent, praiseworthy and admirable things. Let your mind dwell on them and I promise, I, the God of peace, will be with you and you will experience My joy.
I am so for you always!
