Why are you downcast, Oh, my soul? Put your hope in God. For I will yet praise Him. Praise Him in the morning. Praise Him in the evening. Self-pity would have me think I’ve been cheated. Self-pity would say you will have to take, Because it was taken from you. But I remember the One, He is sovereign. There is no other like Him. How long, Lord, will I wait to see the reward of the wicked? God is slow to anger. He is not willing that anyone would perish. Forgiveness leaps forth with repentance. But no remorse is given. He asks me to forgive the wicked. He says I forgave you. In this, you are like your Father God. They are like their father, the devil. But you are not of the devil. You are of me. They have no hope in their father, the devil. You have a living hope in me. Did I not restore thee? And I will do it again. Am I slack or wasted in resources? Am I the creator of all? I own all. By my word, It will be done as I please. Come to me all who are heavy laden. I will give you rest. My yoke is easy. My burden is light. I am God in thee. I am God who sympathizes with thee. No angel or demon can understand a human. Even them, I made. The angels that rebelled are demons. They cannot sympathize with you. Doesn’t the Creator know His creation? Yet even in this I came and I lived as a human. Taking human form. I felt pain, I felt emotions. I felt the weight of the world’s sin, shame and guilt. I am the only God who understands and sympathizes with you. I give you my yoke. It is easy, It is light. Take me my beloved. Eat the bread of life. Eat and be filled, Drink and be merry. Not of the natural, But of my Word and my Spirit. It is food for your soul. Be filled. It’s the best diet, It gives you all the nutrients you need. You shall not lack, For you are in me. Receive me, Believe me. I died for thee. To redeem thee, And free thee. Only I have the authority to do this. No other has authority, For they all were created by me. But they will try to deceive thee. 'Worship me' they say. I will relieve thee. But all they do is consume the soul, Until it is weak and dying. They will eat you whole. Their hunger and thirst becomes all-consuming. They will do anything, they will try and control your being. You will feel out of control. Drugged and mugged. But call to me, My name is powerful. My name sends them shrieking. Call on me. Jesus save me, Jesus I believe, Jesus forgive me, Jesus set me free!
