Divine Restraint – God Calling 09/27

Is My Hand shortened that it cannot save?  No! My power to save increases as your power to understand My Salvation increases.  So from Strength to Strength, from Power to Power, we go in Union.

Limitless is My miracle-working Power in the Universe, though it has limitations in each individual life, but only to the extent of the lack of vision of that individual.  There is no limit to My Power to save.  Also there is no limit to My desire and longing to save.  My Hand is not shortened and it is “stretched out still,” longing and waiting to be allowed to bless and help and save.

Think how tenderly I respect the right of each individual soul.  Never forcing upon it My Help, My Salvation.  Perhaps in all My suffering for humanity that is the hardest, the restraining of the Divine Impatience and longing to help, until the call of the soul gives Me My right to act.

Think of Love shown in this. Comfort My waiting, loving, longing Heart by claiming My Help, Guidance, and Miracle-working Power.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.  Isaiah 9:7
