LEARN TO LISTEN TO ME even while you are listening to other people. As they open their souls to your scrutiny, you are on holy ground. You need the help of My Spirit to respond appropriately. Ask Him to think through you, live through you, love through you. My own Being is alive within you in the Person of the Holy Spirit. If you respond to others’ needs through your unaided thought processes, you offer them dry crumbs. When the Spirit empowers your listening and speaking, My streams of living water flow through you to other people. Be a channel of My Love, Joy, and Peace by listening to Me as you listen to others.
[EXODUS 3:5; 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19; JOHN 7:38–39]
DO NOT USURP MY ROLE in people’s lives, no matter how much you long to help them. Learn from Me: Because I have all authority in heaven and on earth, I could rescue or control anyone at will, yet I wanted them to be free to love Me—or not. Restrain your urges to solve people’s problems; instead, use your time and energy to listen to them and pray for them.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Before You Turn Out the Light:
Entrust your loved ones to Me. They are much safer in My hands than anywhere else.
