The Father's love letter to you



The Lord is saying: Yes you blew it! Why! because you forgot the words I told you, but now repent and do those things which you should have done. Eat my word, feed on it until you are full and satisfied. Renounce those thoughts that come to steal, kill and destroy and feed on them no longer, for they are poison to your soul and to your relationships. My promises are everlasting and as you feed on my word you shall bear fruit. Repent and come back and feed on my word.


Isaiah 55
Invitation to the Thirsty

1 "Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

3 Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.

4 See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a leader and commander of the peoples.

5 Surely you will summon nations you know not,
and nations that do not know you will hasten to you,
because of the LORD your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor."

6 Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.

7 Let the wicked forsake his way
and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the LORD.

9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the LORD's renown,
for an everlasting sign,
which will not be destroyed."







The Maypole - The promise in the rainbow

God gave me a vision of a maypole, like children we were dancing round it. Each ribbon was a colour of the rainbow. Each ribbon represented a promise that the Lord had given us.

Yet the Lord looked sad. I enquired why He was so sad. He replied words to this effect, "Because you do not grasp hold of all of my promises and then you let go of the promises you are holding when the going gets tough. You stop dancing and celebrating in that time for faith, when you cannot yet see the manifestation of my promise "


Nothing saddens the heart of Jesus more than when we mistrust him. That time of faith when we cannot see the manifestation of the word, is the most precious time of showing the Lord that we trust Him. We should thank God and celebrate when those circumstances come that contradict His promises for this is the time we can most please his heart.




While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are
seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
(2 Cor 4:18 NKJ)
