Once you have entered into this moment of worship – begin talking to my Father and tell Him how you are feeling. He is listening and will begin to minister to your heart in a soothing way that will bring you comfort. In this moment my allow my Father to speak truth to your spirit – truth about who your really are in Him which is the opposite of what the enemy speaks to you. Rest in His love, rest in my love.
