I meet you in the place of your deepest need. So come to Me just as you are, leaving pretense and performance behind. You are totally transparent to Me: I know everything about you. Yet because you are My own—redeemed by My blood—I have unlimited, unfailing Love for you.
Ask My Spirit to help you be honest and open with Me. Don’t be ashamed of your neediness; instead, use it to connect with Me in humble dependence. Invite Me to have My way in your life. Remember that I am the Potter, and you are the clay. The weakness you bring Me is malleable in My hands, and I use it to mold you according to My will.
Your deepest need is to lean on, trust in, and be confident in Me. Accepting your lack of strength helps you lean on Me in unashamed dependence. I am training you to trust Me with all your heart and mind—a lifelong endeavor. And the best way to not be afraid is to have confidence in Me, your Strength.
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
—1 Peter 1:18–19
Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.
