I Know Where You Are

I know where you are.

    You live and move within My being. I am always with you, so there is no trial or season or place where I don’t know where you are.

    I know where you are, standing at your Red Sea, trapped at the edge of impending disaster. You are so upset you cannot hear My laughter. Little one, I know where you are. Laugh with Me, and praise My glory as you wait for your miracle.
   I know where you are.

   Circumstances beyond your control have thrown you into the fire. Your eyes are on the flames and you cannot see Me walking beside you. The bondages to this life that held you when you were cast in here are the only things that I will allow to be consumed in this flame. Reach out and take My hand. Together we shall stroll through the fire. Do not be afraid. I know where you are.

    I know when you have been thrown into a den of temptations that are roaring about you like lions seeking to devour you away from Me. Keep your eyes steadfast upon Me and the Light you see will blind the eyes of your inner enemies and hold them at bay until the morning of your release. I am suffering with you, and isn’t it a glorious thing to endure this with Me? I cannot wait to place upon your head the crown of overcoming victory!

    I know where you are.
    When the loneliness of four empty walls surrounds you, when friends and family are gone and there seems to be nothing that can hold and keep you - be strong. I know where you are. Like life that suddenly revives within a tomb, you are surrounded by the One who makes all things new. Arise and shine! I am the One who alone can create something beautiful out of nothing. I bestow your future upon you like an everlasting gift. Come open it with Me and do not fear the road ahead, for I will always know where you are.

For in Him we live and move and have our being....Where shall I go from Thy Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Thy Presence? If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, Thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
Acts 17:28, Psalm 139:7-10
