    May you obey the Lord and give comfort to His people in distress, supporting them in their need from your abundance, for the Lord does not need your help, but He richly recompenses all that is done for His brethren as though it were done to Himself. 2 Samuel 17

    May you speak what God gives you, in accordance with His word, that you may rest in His integrity and rely on His power, for He watches over His Word to perform it, and it is not up to you to make it happen. 2 Samuel 17

    May you find your identity in the Lord, through His Spirit of truth, and not in the world or your skills, or even in His gifts or His work, for all will change as seasons come and go, but He will remain the same forever. 2 Samuel 17

    Be all you can, My child, just as I have made you.
    Do not compare yourself with others, for I have formed them for other tasks. Do not ask how far you have come, or how far you have to go, but simply look to Me, for then I will draw you.
    I have placed you, My special one, where you need to be now, and I will move you, when the time comes, to where I have planned.
    Grow and blossom, My fair one, where I have planted you, but wear the world loosely, clinging only to Me, so that when I transplant you, the time of change will be no more than the change of weather.
    Times of sorrow come to everyone, so find your happiness in the hope I give you. Seasons of trouble come upon the world, My precious one, so remain patient and endure in the work I give you.
    The world system conquers all that it owns, My called-out one, but you are no longer of the world and your prayers have power with Me. Be instant in prayer and persistent in petition to Me for others, for I choose to work through you to reach those who hunger and thirst but are still held captive.
    Do not let up, do not cease to pray, do not doubt that I hear and answer. Whisper a prayer for comfort over the one I point out to you as you pass in the marketplace, ask Me to minister to the one I highlight in your heart, write encouragement to the one who I have brought to your thoughts, and speak My love and mercy to one I bring to your door.
    Those who are crossing Kidron need to know that, just like you, just like David, just like Jesus, there is victory afterwards, and they will be able to drink the clear water with joy from the well of salvation.

    May you love the faithful promises of God and the righteous statutes He has laid down, for they have been thoroughly tested and and are fully trustworthy; even though the enemy ignores the Word of the Lord, God is righteous and His laws are right. Psalm 119

    May you not forget God's precepts though trouble and distress come upon you, for His righteousness is everlasting, His law is eternally true, and His statutes are forever right; though you feel lowly in your own sight and despised by the enemy, it is because you delight in the Lord's commands that He will give you understanding which will make you prosper. Psalm 119

    May you rise before dawn and call out for help with all your heart to the Lord as you obey His decrees and keep His statutes, putting your hope in His word, for He will answer you and save you from your distress. Psalm 119

    May you meditate on God's promises when sleep does not come through the night-time hours, for the Lord will hear your voice in accordance with His love, and will preserve your life according to His laws. Psalm 119

    May you trust that all of the Lord's commands are true and He has established them to last forever, therefore even when mischief-makers and lawless people come to attack you, you will know that they are far from God's law, and the Lord Himself is near to you; His truth is in your heart and His word even in your mouth. Psalm 119
