Hope for the Downcast

A love letter from Jesus. 



“As a deer panting with a great need for water to find relief from the pressure and heat, so you have panted for Me to help in the deep troubles. Thirst is suffering, in the midst of the heat. Longing for a breakthrough, to quench the demanding needs. As a deer pants for the water brooks, so your soul has panted for My relief. To be downcast is to look down with doubt and weariness is a sign of needing strength and rest. From the depths of your suffering, you have cried aloud for My help to come to the rescue. I will fill every deficiency and give hope to the downcast. 



Be confident and hopeful as you release the disquieted anxieties within. Do not worry. Your heavenly Father knows all that you need. Give your entire attention to the words that I speak and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. I will help you. Cast all of your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, onto Me. I affectionately care and watch over you. I am on your side and I will not forsake you in your weakness.



 My promises are your comfort and rescue from suffering. Wait expectantly for My help. Anxiety in the heart causes depression, but My good tidings are gladness. I am your strength for the journey. I am the silver lining on the clouds and the sunshine through the overcast. Out of your deep needs, I will be your Hero.


You have been so worried and troubled about many things, but only one thing is needed. Come into My rest. Rest your mind in My peace, be free of anxieties and trust. I have come to give you rest from your labors and lift up your heavy burdens. Your deep need has called out to My deep kindness and love. Keep your hope in Me as your help in an ever-present need. I will fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. I will command My loving-kindness in the daytime, and in the night My song is with you. I am your deliverance to save you from what is unpleasant and afflicting.



Don’t harden your heart to My words, just believe. I sympathize with your deepest needs. I am your hope, your confident expectation. Therefore let your heart be glad and rest completely in what you hope for. Allow your soul to vitally unite to Me without the distance of doubting. Abide in My words and let them rest continually in you, without worry. Stay here in the Shelter of My love as you believe what I promised.  



Ask whatever you need and it will be done for you. The joy of knowing that you will possess your desires will replace your worries and sorrows. Your joy will burst into splashing fullness, complete and overflowing, instead of the anxieties and worry. My presence is the fullness of joy and My joy makes you strong again. You will experience your answered prayers with great delight, as I come vaulting over the mountains and leaping over the hills”.
