Turn the page. It’s time to turn the page to reveal what comes next in this story. I have kept you here, studying each word perfectly. You have examined each sentence; you have sought out each meaning. You see, I have given you a moment in time to which you were made to stand still. Even the resting itself is a test of true faith. The blinders were put on to help you focus, but now through the strengthening of maturity, the blinders have been cleared away. Your single-focused vision has been set upon me, and this is what I find pleasing.
Now allow me to ask you a series of questions. Keep in mind that I am not looking for the answer, but merely earnestly showing you the Truth. When I ask a question, I ask for your benefit. When I ask a question, I am revealing who you are.
- To whom do you belong?
- Who has the final say over your life?
- Who has possession over your heart?
- Who has adopted you into a life of righteousness?
- To whom do you serve?
- Who has shown you love and taught you with that love?
- Who saved you, healed you, and sealed you with the Holy Spirit?
Do you see a pattern in my questions, beloved? Has your answer to these series of questions resounded as “man”? I should say not! I am the answer and I do not permit to share this with anyone else! So tell me, dear one, if man has not brought you this far, who is to say man will continue you further? I will declare this loud and I will tell you as Truth, I am your Rear Guard, your Provider, your Teacher, your Faithful Friend, your Redemption. I am your Comforter, your Eternal Promise, your Saving Grace, and your Unbroken Faith which sets you apart. I am your Endorser, and I am your Dependability in a changing world. Do not reside to being thrown into a crowd of followers, but instead stand apart as a born again believer and by this you shall be known as a leader.
Do not complicate what I have made known so clearly. Be holy, for I am holy. And do you understand why I AM holy? This is not a character trait that you can obtain through practice or even time spent with me. To be holy means to be set apart in a sect far off and never blending. It means to be in comparison with no other. You cannot obtain this through study, legislation defenses, or hands laid in blessing. To be holy is to inherit all that I am through all that my Son has been and will continue to be. Everything in this world shall fade away, but my Word shall remain forever. I shall say this again, you cannot obtain anything through your works, you obtain through the Blood!
Now as you turn the page to this next season of your life, take with you all that you learned from the previous pages before it. A new chapter means a new beginning, not a new story. The story stays the same, however the story plot is always subject to change. I will tell you this as truth, and this will give you comfort in the days ahead; I have gone before you and I remain where you soon shall be. The unfolding of your life is that of a sunset: always beautiful and always providing meaning. Some pass by the sunset with a glance, others stand and study the sunset in all of it’s splendor. It is appreciated only by some. Yet the sunset never worries itself with who observes it, the sunset instead radiates its beauty regardless. And so it is with you. Radiate my love to this world no matter who notices it or regards it as worthless. Nothing ever goes unnoticed by me my beloved, and that is all that truly matters.
