Put One Foot in Front of the Other

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14)

Daughter of the King—You are seeing the fruits of your labor. You have been faithful to completing this task I have given you. Your obedience is appreciated. You have done your part for the moment. The next step is in my hands. Leave it to me. I am in control. I am with you. Listen to me and follow my lead. I will make things happen for you in a way that I will receive all the glory. I have chosen you for a reason. Be patient. I will act when the time is right. Keep pressing forward. Do not be overwhelmed. Put one foot in front of the other each day and make progress in the work I have for you. Your reward will be worth the wait. I am in control of all things. You are in my sight. I will not leave you alone to face the wolves of this world. They will bow down to me. Remain humble and obedient to your call. I will produce fruit ten-, fifty-, one-hundred fold. It matters not that you have a small following. You have a great God who is in your court cheering for you. Be faithful and committed to your work. The time may come when your time will go. Remain true to me and maintain your relationship with me. Do not forget who has called you to this. Tune in to me. I will let you in on my plans. My plan is to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future. Your future is secure with me.

Life in the Son

Lord, I have been in a slump because of the dreary weather. Would you shine some light into my life? Does the sun, or lack of it, really make that big of difference?


My child, if you only knew. Life in the Son does make that much of a difference. The sun I have placed in the sky may lift your spirits while it shines; but it does not provide constant light, as you know. Truly, my Son will shine his light into your darkness all hours of the day and night. You never need to endure the storms of life alone. I am with you always. I will shine my light of life into every dark corner. I will light the way for you. I will lead you in the path of life.
 

My sweet daughter, life in the Son does make that much of a difference. Even on the darkest of days, you may have joy in your heart, because you belong to me. I am the true light that gives life. As you walk in the rain, my light will lead you on your way. Follow me and you will never walk in darkness, because I am the light of life. (See John 8:12) I have made my light shine in your heart to give you the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. (See 2 Corinthians 4:6)
 

My precious one, life in the Son does make that much of a difference. You may be downcast for a little while, but consider what I have done for you. I am light. I have given you my light. In me there is no darkness. (See 1 John 1:5) Never again will you remain in darkness, because you believe in me, the light of the world.
 

Are you downcast? Look to me for your happiness. Are your spirits low? I will lift you up on eagle’s wings. Are you depressed? I will remove your sackcloth and clothe you with joy. Are you stuck in a pit? I will pull you out of the pit and place you on solid ground. Are you caught in the middle of a storm? I am with you. I will weather this storm with you, and bring you to a place of rest.
 

Seek me, my child, and I will give you joy in your spirit and peace in your heart. My light will illuminate the darkest of days. Even as we speak, the skies are getting brighter. I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me shall stay in darkness. (John 12:46) Life in the Son does make that much of a difference. Choose to live your life in the Son.
