Read LUKE 2: NEW LIVING
“My child, remember the keys again to hearing My voice and hearing My heart. Still your heart, listen and hear the quiet roar of the fireplace, the quiet music playing in the background.”
“Step back into the Christmas house, as I share with you another layer of the Christmas story. Here you are with so many thousand questions on your heart, and here I am to say to you to spend time with Me, value this time, and know that it is worthwhile.”
“The story of the shepherds involved people who were chosen to be part of a bigger story. They were the lowest people, they were not kings, they were shepherds. Yet I sent angels out to sing to them and share to them the good news of the birth of salvation.”
“I see your heart today; how you are wondering about your place in the world; about what meaning your life could bring to others.”
“This is not about what other people think of you; this is what I think of you. You have been chosen to be story tellers of the birth of Jesus.”
“The shepherds had no gift to bring baby Jesus except their own awe and wonder at the baby being born. Their worship was enough, and they became story tellers of the birth of Jesus.”
“You hear My music drawing you close to Me. I am using this to draw you close to Me. Continue on with your dreams. The shepherds were reminded that night that they were not forgotten. You are not forgotten, you are not an outcast. You are special, and there is so much more value and meaning to the dreams that I have put in your life.”
“The shepherds seeing the baby Jesus would be reminded that the dream of salvation had been fulfilled and was going to be fulfilled. I sent the angels to them to restore their hope. Their hope had been lost.”
“Where has your hope been lost? I am here to restore your hope today. I want to restore the dreams in your life, and speak to you that the time for dreams to be born has finally come to pass. There is no more need to wait.”
“It is not enough for you to know My words as thoughts in the Bible or thought in your heart. I want you to hold your heart and receive My embrace tonight. I want you to meditate on the birth of Jesus being born, and in doing so, remember that your dream is Jesus; and Jesus is the birth of dreams.”
“I am well aware of all the questions in your heart, and how you feel disqualified. Remember, the shepherds were not wealthy like the wise men. I chose both the wisest and the richest and the simplest and humblest both to see the birth of Jesus.”
