Can a child ask a parent for something, then expect to be chided or beaten? That is not a good parent for offering up such offensive reactions. I Am a Good Parent, your Parent, and I treat you with love, honesty, respect, and honor at all times. Ask for what you need. I hear you. I answer you. You may not always have a clear path, but if you walk with Me – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – your path will be made straight. The more time you spend with Me, the more you trust Me, the easier things become. Do not be deceived, however, for the devil seeks to destroy you and all of My Creation. Be vigilant and watchful, and do not fall for his tricks and fallacies. Discern, and seek Wisdom from Me in all things.
