One example below is entitled
" I Anticipate Your Dependence Upon Me".
 


 
My child, give Me your heart, for out of it issues life.  My hand is upon you, and I will keep you in all places wherever you go.  I am your God, and I am your Father, and I will care for you and provide for you according to all that you need.  I will be at your side, ready to help you whenever you call on Me.  I am not unmindful of your needs, and My concern is for you.

You do not need to carry your own load, for I will be happy to help you carry it and to bear you up as well.  You do not walk alone or meet any situation alone, for I am with you, and I will give you wisdom and strength, and My blessing shall be yours.  Keep your heart set on Me and your affections on things above; for I cannot bless you unless you ask Me.  And I cannot answer if you do not call.  I cannot minister to you unless you come to Me.

Do not wait to feel worthy, for no one is worthy of My blessings.  My grace bypasses your shortcomings, and I give to My children because they ask of Me and because I love them.  I do not love one more than another.  I give most liberally to those who ask the most of Me, for I love to have you depend on Me.  This is why the Spirit within you cries, “Abba—Father.”  As your Father, I anticipate your dependence on Me.  You may mature and outgrow your dependence on your human parents, but as My child, you will never “outgrow” your spiritual sonship, nor will I ever cast you out to rely on your own resources, not even when you become a parent.  Indeed, then you will more fully appreciate My feelings toward you.  You will then understand the love a father has for his child, and experience the desire to care for and provide; then you will know more fully how much I love you, how ready I am to help you, and how available I am to counsel with you and give you My support.

Heaven's resources are at your command, and you need never want, so long as I am your Shepherd.  Do not think that since I know all about you, you need not bother to tell Me.  It is true that I know, but you need to tell Me so that in the telling, you may experience the release of an open heart, and the fellowship of a Friend.

As you open your heart to Me, I will come to you.  As you speak to Me, I will speak to you.  As you reveal yourself to Me, I will reveal Myself to you.  This is a law of life.  There must be action to bring reaction.  There must be a question to bring an answer.  There must be an expression of love and confidence on the part of one person to arouse a corresponding response in another person.

Never presume My presence.  Never assume that knowing your need, I will automatically supply Ask, and it shall be given.  Call upon Me, and I will answer you.  Tell Me that you love Me, and I will make your heart know in a very real way My love for you and My near­ness, and you shall never feel alone.

Welcome Me into your heart, and the more you sense My presence within you, the more you will feel at home no matter where you may be.  Forget anything else, but never forget this.
 

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ
lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me
and gave Himself for me.
Galatians 2:20
