November 23 Echoes of Eternity
And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people.
I, the Lord God, Maker of heaven and earth, delight to hold fellowship with My lowly creatures. My love created them and gave them life and breath. My Spirit quickened them into new life, to enable them to seek Me and find Me in the appointed time. Marvel not that such is the case, for it is the nature of love to seek the good and happiness of others. My delight can only be increased as My
children find true joy and delight. My divine happiness, My joy, is increased by theirs. The joy that was set before Me on the cross was the sure faith-knowledge that My death would bring joy and delight to My children.
I do not seek craven servants, but joyful children. I do not find pleasure in fear-inspired service, though I accept it as a way-station toward maturity. When the fullness of love comes, our relation can be based on a mutual desire to bring joy to the other. Learning to see My design in purging out false dreams and aims is a step—a necessary step in the path to maturity. The tapestry of My plan begins to “make sense” as you view your life in this light.
