I WANT YOU TO LOVE ME, LISTEN TO MY VOICE, and hold fast to Me—for I am your Life.
This is the way of wisdom. I am training you to stay close to Me as you walk along perilous paths.
In any close relationship, listening and loving are vitally important—and they are interconnected.
Listen to Me as I rejoice over you with gladness and quiet you with My Love.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you receive My glorious Love in full measure.
This will dramatically increase your love for Me.
The world is full of dangers, so it is wise to hold tightly to My hand.
Listen—through My Spirit and My Word—while I talk you through tough times.
Pour out your heart to Me, remembering that I am your Refuge.
As you stay in dialogue with Me, I help you handle whatever is before you.
Hold fast to Me, beloved, for I am your Life.
