Thought to share: Be real with ME. There is no need for you to approach ME wearing a mask or hiding behind your walls. When you come to ME – presenting ME with what you think I want to see and saying what you think I want to hear – you inhibit intimacy with ME. You keep ME at a distance and prevent ME from giving you what you need. Stop the facade and come to ME with open honesty and full transparency. I already know everything about you. I even know things about you that you are not aware of. Nothing you say will surprise or shock ME. You cannot make ME love you any more or less than I do. So be real and you’ll find our relationship much more rewarding.

1Samuel 16:7 (NLT) But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

Psalm 139:1-4 (NLT) LORD, You have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD.

Thought to share: You might be surprised, but I AM not. I AM not stunned, shocked or caught off guard. Before the foundations of the world, I knew you and every detail of your life. I knew every situation and circumstance of you would face, and I planned provision in advance for you. No matter where you find yourself today – no matter what season you are in –  know that I AM fully aware and have everything you need. Ask ME to unfold MY plan and provision for you, and open your heart and hands to receive.

Psalm 139:15-16 (MSG) Oh yes, You shaped me first inside, then out; You formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—You’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made. I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, You know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,  how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.

Jeremiah 1:5 (MSG) Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you:

Psalm 34:10 (TPT) Even the strong and the wealthy grow weak and hungry, but those who passionately pursue the Lord will never lack any good thing.

Thought to share: I enjoy you. I like being with you. I want to spend time with you. I find pleasure in you. You are not just a face in the crowd. I know you deeply and you are a delight to ME. Your neediness is not a burden to ME. You are a joy.

Psalm 139:1-6 (TPT) Lord, you know everything there is to know about me. You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind. You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book and you know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. With your hand of love upon my life, you impart a blessing to me. This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength.

Psalm 147:11 (NLT) No, the LORD’s delight is in those who fear Him, those who put their hope in His unfailing love.

Psalm 149:4 (Amp) For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.

Zephaniah 3:17 (GNT) The LORD will take delight in you, and in His love He will give you new life. He will sing and be joyful over you,

Thought to share: I hear you every time you call ME. I AM aware of your slightest sigh. I know your deepest thoughts. And with every one, I respond. I never ignore you. Don’t let your emotions or your circumstances cloud your view and muffle your hearing. I AM ever present with you and attentive to you. See ME. Listen to ME. Know I AM with you and I AM caring for you.

Psalm 34:17 (NLT) The Lord hears His people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.

Psalm 139:2 (TPT) You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and You understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.

1Peter 5:7 (TPT) Pour out all your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there, for He always tenderly cares for you.
