Blessed are you because your strength is in Me, and your heart is set on a course – a pathway and destination to walk with me. Even when you pass through a valley of weeping, and your tears fill up a well, like a rain barrel I fill in a parched land, you will be strengthened for one battle after another, because you can stand before Me freely, without fear.
I am the LORD God of hosts and I hear your prayer, I will listen, for I am the God of Jacob – I am your God.
Look upon Me, I am your shield, you are My chosen one. We look at one another face-to-face. In My court, one day is better than a thousand days anywhere else. I would rather you be in My courts as a doorkeeper than live anywhere else with the wicked of this world. No success by human worldly standards can compare to a simple life with me. That is, a simple life with no great mission or ministry, is better than a life of success by human worldly standards.
For I am the LORD, I am your sun, your light to light the way, and I am your shield: I will give you favor and honor: No good thing will I withhold from you because you walk with integrity, truth and with complete sincerity.
I am the LORD of hosts – you will be happy because you have chosen to trust Me and be confident that I will save you.
