If you receive my love, even in difficulties, you will know the secret of the wonder of eternity. Don’t let appearances deceive you—my love will win every struggle that you face. Even this day, I have prepared a hiding place of mercy for you.
I want to give you a faith that is limitless—a faith that can come only from me. Let me flood you with love so magnificent and fulfilling that you never question it again. My love will wash away the discontentment you’ve experienced in this world. It will set you upon a foundation that cannot be ravaged by storms. If you walk in my ways, the higher ways of heaven, I will help you interpret situations rightly and give you the wisdom you need to navigate every situation. Tap into my eternal ways and allow me to satisfy the yearning of your soul.
The Passion Translation
God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.
