I Am loving and kind, tenderhearted and forgiving says the LORD, and I want you to be just like Me. Do not let bitterness enter into you as you give place to the enemy. Do not become unforgiving and allow him to control your thoughts. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger. My mercy endures fever and I want you to be merciful. As My rain pours out on the just and the unjust alike, be good to your enemies. They will not know how to retaliate against your goodness that will shock them when they are looking for revenge. I Am your defense, so you do not have to defend yourself. I will arise and cause your enemies to be scattered and as they form alliances to overwhelm you I will defeat them and scatter them so that one is not left with another. None of your enemies will prosper in the things that they devise against you, for I AM with you to defend and preserve you, says the LORD.
I call for a bounty of blessings upon blessings upon blessings for you, says the LORD. It is My command. It is My power that will cause it, says the LORD. I will restore the wasted years, call forth the many years of failed harvests and you will eat of the fat of the land. I will create the new and the old will not be needed for the new. My blessings will overtake you and you barns will be full of corn and the oil will flow. You will prosper in what I send you forth to do, for the harvest will be great. Do not postpone your preparation, or put it off for a more convenient time because it does not seem productive, for I Am preparing you for the place that you will go and positioning you to reap a bountiful harvest, says the LORD. You will not be overlooked, but join the songs of the reapers as they break out in new songs of great joy and thanksgiving because of the great ingathering of the harvest, says the LORD.
