AS YOU WAIT attentively in My Presence, the Light of the knowledge of My Glory shines upon you. This radiant knowledge transcends all understanding. It transforms every fiber of your being: renewing your mind, cleansing your heart, invigorating your body. Open yourself fully to My Presence; be awed by My glorious Being.
Try to imagine what I gave up when I came into your world as a baby. I set aside My Glory so that I could identify with mankind. I accepted the limitations of infancy under the most appalling conditions—a filthy stable. That was a dark night for Me, even though angels lit up the sky proclaiming, “Glory!” to awestruck shepherds.
When you sit quietly with Me, the process I went through is reversed in your experience. As you identify with Me, heaven’s vistas open up before you—granting you glimpses of My Glory. I became poor so that you might become rich. Sing hallelujahs to My holy Name!
2 CORINTHIANS 4:6; PHILIPPIANS 2:6–7; LUKE 2:13–14; 2 CORINTHIANS 8:9
EVEN YOUR MISTAKES CAN BE RECYCLED into something good through My transforming grace. You tend to view yourself as someone who should be almost perfect, making very few errors. My perspective is quite different. I see you as My beloved—weak in many ways, prone to wandering from Me. However, your weakness and waywardness cannot diminish My constant Love for you.
As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
~ PSALM 103:13–14
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
~ PSALM 119:76

Before You Turn Out the Light
Come running back to Me whenever you realize you have wandered. I’m right here.
