A love letter from the Father


Beautiful child, I will hold you as you rest on Me. Like resting in an ark carried through the winding river. Even in the midst of danger, I have sheltered you. In peace, rest your head and sleep, for I alone make you dwell in safety. Keep My peace in your heart, I know just what I am doing. The mighty One who watches over you never slumbers or sleeps. You are safe not because of the absence of danger but because of the power of My Presence.


I am the force behind the wind that divides the sea. I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward. My song fills your heart with the melodies of My salvation. There is no reason to fear or be in dread of the dangers along the riverbanks because I am with you. I will never leave you or forsake you. I am closer than your breath, trust Me to carry you.


My love is flooding you like an ocean, to make all things new. I am a man of war, the LORD, do not be afraid of what man can do. I am on your side. I will cause even your enemies to be at peace with you. Commune with the poetic flame of my heart. I am opening doors for you that no man can shut and making the crooked places straight.


Nothing can hurt you here, in the river that flows through my arms. Lovely as a water lily, whose beauty unfolds even in the swamp waters, where the crocodile hides. Even among the papyrus reeds growing in the Delta mud, where dark and mysterious troubles lurk, I am protecting you as the one that I love.


Out in the open, I am guarding your way. My anointed, My chosen, whose hand I have held. I will go before you. Hush now my baby, rest on Me as the waters sway. I am your comforter and helper. Truly, truly I love you. Trust where the river takes you, rest in My strong embrace. I won’t give you a dream without providing the power to make it come true. It’s about your willingness to trust where I lead you. It’s not your ability, it’s My ability within you.
