Today I am extending peace to you. I am giving you my peace in this world. For surely you will have troubles. You will have trials. You will have conflicts. You will even have persecution. For the world will not love you, because it has not loved me. But understand, I am giving you my grace to finish. I am giving you my peace to comfort you even in the midst of your troubles. So reach out to me, and you will find I am not far. I am near. I am with you, by your side, and I will give you my peace to allow you to persevere and finish.
For surely it is my plan that you not faint, that you not become weary in your well-doing. So in your times of your limits, when you cannot continue any longer, reach to me and I will reach back. I will give you my strength. I will give you my spirit. I will give you.
For I have placed my vision before you, and it will sustain you. I have given you my son, and he will live in your heart. I have given you so much, already. Surely I will give you these little things you have need of. So do not hesitate. Do not delay. But make your petitions and requests known to me. Come to me, and you will find my grace is sufficient for you. My love is sufficient for you. My presence is sufficient for you.
