I am building you. These storms you’ve been through? All to build you… to make you a servant to be proud of.
(Do My words surprise you?)
Don’t you take a certain pride in watching your children grow through the things they struggle with?
As they gain confidence (especially confidence in Me) don’t you feel the glow of inner satisfaction that, “…this child of mine is learning, and growing, and becoming, a better and better person?”
You see FAITH, KINDNESS, and LOVE for others begin to manifest, and you think, “I must be doing something right.”
(Well, I am your Father.)
When you listen, and follow My word; when you begin to manifest these attributes of faith, and kindness, and love that I have labored long and hard to teach you…
I am pleased.
(Yes, very pleased.)
These storms that come to “test” are for revealing you to you. To show you where we have succeeded—and where there is more work to be done.
Storms are very revealing are they not?
When dark clouds begin to gather, I want you to see My pleasure. I want you to believe that you are loved.
I LOVE you, My child.
It is the nature of a loving Father to teach His children.
All who listen to My instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock.” Matthew 7:24
