And so you
are beginning to see that I have been faithful all along.
Yet it is still a walk in faith until you see the fullfilment
of all that I have promised. You shall surely see full restoration
and the years in the wilderness recompensed. For you have
been faithful and stayed with me, nor have you been offended
in me. But now I am stepping in and no more shall you be trodden
down under other's feet. You shall be the head and not the
tail.Those who have despised you and your stand for me shall
see you rewarded and they shall be amazed that they had got
it so wrong. Thank you child for believing in me. This is
the joy and warmth of my heart, that you have trusted and
stayed grateful, all these years..
37 3:Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident)in the Lord
and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely
on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed. Amplified
translation from Hebrew also implies to run for refuge to
the Lord. I love to see this as running to the Lord like a
child runs to its mother when its hurting. Also the translation
from the Jewish bible implies the word cherish. When we feed
on the promises of God and get them right down there in our
'belly' (heart) we are cherishing the faithfulness of the
Shepherd; grazing on the goodness of our faithful friend.
My version of the translation goes something like this: Run
for refuge to the Lord and do kindly, good things, abide in
the land, and graze on the Shepherd's faithfulness.
this world where everything is crying out that either there
is no God or that He doesn't love you, its important to cherish
the truth that you are His sheep and He is your Shepherd and
He is Faithful. To get that deep in your heart and nourish
that thought will drive away the fears that so easily come
to haunt us
10: 7 -11 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever
came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did
not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he
shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to
destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the
good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

I am come into my garden,
my sister, my spouse.
The heart of the believer is Christs garden.
He bought it with his precious blood, and he enters
it and claims it as his own. A garden implies separation.
It is not the open common; it is not a wilderness;
it is walled around, or hedged in. Would that we
could see the wall of separation between the church
and the world made broader and stronger. It makes
one sad to hear Christians saying, Well, there
is no harm in this; there is no harm in that,
thus getting as near to the world as possible. Grace
is at a low ebb in that soul which can even raise
the question of how far it may go in worldly conformity.
A garden is a place of beauty, it far surpasses
the wild uncultivated lands. The genuine Christian
must seek to be more excellent in his life than
the best moralist, because Christs garden
ought to produce the best flowers in all the world.
Even the best is poor compared with Christs
deservings; let us not put him off with withering
and dwarf plants. The rarest, richest, choicest
lilies and roses ought to bloom in the place which
Jesus calls his own. The garden is a place of growth.
The saints are not to remain undeveloped, always
mere buds and blossoms. We should grow in grace,
and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ. Growth should be rapid where Jesus is the
Husbandman, and the Holy Spirit the dew from above.
A garden is a place of retirement. So the Lord Jesus
Christ would have us reserve our souls as a place
in which he can manifest himself, as he doth not
unto the world. O that Christians were more retired,
that they kept their hearts more closely shut up
for Christ! We often worry and trouble ourselves,
like Martha, with much serving, so that we have
not the room for Christ that Mary had, and do not
sit at his feet as we should. The Lord grant the
sweet showers of his grace to water his garden this
