I have given my grace to release people from debts owed you. I am helping you to walk in greater dimensions of forgiveness, just as I have forgiven you. Surely this is my way, and surely it is a better way to live than to carry burdens and constantly keep score. Instead, I’m making it possible to know the freedom available to you as you walk in forgiveness. This is my gift to you, to allow you to forget about offenses against you. In doing so you will walk in freedom and joy in all things, full of joy – even an abundance of joy. (1)
In these days of reflection of your past and forgiving those who have trespassed against you, I will awaken a new perspective on things of the past. You will have a new understanding of lessons you’ve already learned. You will look to the trials and failures of your past and see them anew. You will see them from a higher perspective, with more detail, greater wisdom, and eternal revelation, for my processes to you are good and they are effective in producing their desired results, if you are willing to engage them, and embrace them. (2)
I have also given my grace to embrace lessons, especially difficult lessons, so you can achieve the most of all I have for you. I am helping you along the way to walk in freedom and gratitude in all things from your past, though your enemy has tried to use them to discourage, disqualify, and defeat you. These accusations hold no lasting impact, except that which you give to them. Do not dwell on mistakes of the past, as if you are somehow a disqualified failure, but set your sights on what you need to learn from these things. In doing so, they will not only instruct you, but will serve you as you advance and continue to mature. (3)
I am restoring all things, and in all things I will show myself strong on your behalf. The things of your past that do not make sense to you, will come together in such a way as to make perfect sense, and you will have clarity and understanding. All your questions will be answered, over the course of time. And as a result you will be alive with gratitude and confidence for the working of my hand behind the natural realm. (4)
As you continue to reacquaint yourself with the lessons learned over the years, you will have a greater appreciation for timing. You will grow to value the processes and the way things have developed slowly. At times you want circumstances to transpire quickly, and at other times you want them to transpire slowly. In both cases there is a grace to you to be able to learn to appreciate them both more fully, just as they are.
In this awakening and revisiting of lessons of old, you will see my handiwork behind the answers and behind the questions. You will see my nature, and see my process. You will see the things you could not discern before. You will appreciate the timing of things you could not appreciate before. And through it all, your heart will awaken to a newer level of parental love – both in receiving as well as giving. As your father I care for you so much, and want the very best for you, so much so, I’m willing to teach, train, and discipline you in order to help you along your life’s journey.
Open your hearts to me, and drink of my knowledge, for the things I have for you are good. There is no good thing I will withhold from you, my beloved. You are the one that has captured my eye. You are the one my heart is fond of, for you have captured my affections. I will show you all things, all mysteries, all questions, and all answers as you continue recline and dine with me. (5)
