I have opened understanding to your heart, and also to your mind. I have breathed upon the issues of the day and have given insight and understanding to you from my perspective. My eyes see you differently than you see yourself. My eyes see the world and your circumstances differently than you see them. So receive my eyes, and receive my vision, for you will see your present circumstances, yourself, and your relationships very differently as you do (1).
But know I have granted you understanding. I have not granted delusion, deception, nor mere sentiment. What I am giving you is a perspective different than yours, so embrace it and digest it, for it will be air for you to breathe, and water for your thirst. And in this you will see and experience my freedom too. You will come to know what has already been given you as you see it begin to manifest in your life, but also as you see my hand at work in the lives of those you love (2).
With my vision and perspective you will rest more, stress less, and strive less. You will see what has already been accomplished, you will see what I am doing in this moment, and you will see what is on the horizon. And with this your heart will be secure, for you will no longer feel compelled to make these things happen, or to attempt them in your own strength. You will see me, and see my hand, and see my power at work, and will rest in this knowledge of my activity and involvement in all things, especially what matters most to you (3).
Stop with your worry. Stop with your fear. Stop with your anxiety. Stop with your excuses, and receive my vision. For as you do you will trust more, enjoy more, and celebrate more. You will see the beauty within imperfections and will by no means remain discouraged. You will see the greater glory and greater potential within hearts and will by no means remain fearful. You will see the greater glory and greater potential within circumstances, and will by no means remain worried (4).
Observe who I am, but also observe all I am doing. For in these observations you will know all things have been taken care of already, as you abide in the fellowship of my presence, joy, and peace.
