I would have you learn when temptations assail you, and the “enemy comes in like a flood.” that this thing is from Me, and your weakness needs my might, and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.
Are you in difficult circumstances, surrounded by people who do not understand you, who never consult your taste, who put you in the background? This thing is from me.
Are you in money difficulties? Is it hard to make both ends meet? This thing is from Me for I would have you draw from and depend on me.
Are you passing through a night of sorrow? This thing is from Me. I have let earthly comforters fail you, that by turning to Me you may obtain everlasting consolation.
Have you longed to do some great work for Me and instead have been laid aside on a bed of pain and weakness? This thing is from Me. I want to teach you some of my deepest lessons. Some of My greatest workers are those shut out from active service, that they may learn to wield the weapon of all prayer.
Let every circumstance that arises, every word that pains you, every interruption that would make you impatient, every revelation of your weakness allow you to see Me in all things.
