“My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.” John 5:17.

For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands. Psalm 92:4.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

My pleasure and delight is to forgive you and make you righteous with My own righteousness.  This really comes down to that My delight is to be with the children of men.  My delight is to dwell among you and be your God, to provide for you, love you, bless you, heal you, prosper you, give you abundant eternal life, and, above all, to fellowship with you.  I want us to be one, joined together forever as family but even closer, I espouse you to Me forever in faithfulness and love.

And that is why I gave you Jesus.  I do not want anyone to perish.  I want you all with Me in the Kingdom forever.

I was pleased to crush Him putting Him to grief if He would render Himself as the guilt offering.  And He did.  “Behold,” He said, “Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law), then He said, “But a body You have prepared for Me; behold, I have come (In the scroll of the book it is written of Me) to do Your will.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second covenant. And by My will, as fulfilled in Him, you have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  And My good pleasure prospered in His Hand.  Isaiah 53:10.

And it still does. Too many of you just concentrate on what I have done, but not on what I am doing now.  What I am doing now is based on what I have done but in your life I am doing it now.  And it is always fresh and new.

It is true that by His stripes you were healed.  But I am healing you now even though you were already healed when He did the finished work.  And it is true that His one sacrifice made all righteous but I am continually imputing His righteousness to you all day and all night.  Romans 3:24.  When you walk in Jesus His blood continuously cleanses you. 1 John 1:7.  So if you fell short of perfection today, do not worry, I imputed His righteousness to you who are in Christ.  For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again because I am the One who holds his hand. Proverbs 24:16; Psalm 37:24.

I am present working on your behalf, to make all things work together for good for those who love Me and are called according to My purpose, and working in you to will and to work My good pleasure.  Romans 8:28; Philippians 2:13.  Which is your shalom. Jeremiah 29:11.  I laid the chastisement upon Jesus that brought you shalom.  Isaiah 53:5.

I am at work.  Jesus told you that.  When He healed a man on the Shabbat the Pharisees persecuted Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath. But He answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.” John 5:16-17.  And what did He come to do?  Serve you.  And He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  And in seeing Him, you are seeing Me.

I send forth My Spirit and new life is born and I renew the face of the earth.  Each day I open My hand to feed you and you gather it.  Have you read Psalm 104?  It tells you many things I am doing in the earth for My creation.  I sustain it by My Word.  I water your earth from My upper chambers and I give food and drink to all.

But there is much more than that.  I tell you that the Israelites saw My works.  Psalm 95:9.  What work did they see?  Deliverance, redemption and salvation.  I told them while they were under the oppression and slavery of Egypt that I would bring them out of their burden, deliver them from bondage, redeem them with My outstretched arm and great judgments, take them as My own people, and be their God.  Exodus 6:6-7.  And they would know Me and My Salvation.  And they saw Me judge Egypt for all the oppression and violence they had done to them, they saw Me lift off the burden of slavery, they saw Me redeem them as they came out laden with silver and gold and not a feeble one among them, they saw Me save them from those who would harm them as I fought for them against their enemies, they saw Me provide their daily bread with no toil, and they saw Me guide them through the desert to the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.  And their children, Joshua and Caleb saw Me give them that good land.

They saw My works and they sang as they left Egypt and saw Pharaoh’s pursuing army drown in the sea, and they sang that I was their strength and their song and had become to them Yeshuah. Salvation.  You have even more reason to sing this.

I work wonders.  Psalm 72:18.  Do you sing for joy at the works of My Hands?  Psalm 92:4-5.  Do you ever even look around and notice?  David even noticed how wonderfully made his body was and saw that I had been at work knitting him in his mother’s womb with great plans for his life already prepared in advance.  Psalm 139:13-18.

The heavens declare the works of My hands, Psalm 19:1, do you?  My faithful ones tell of My works with joyful singing.  Psalm 107:22.  You are not to die but live and declare My works.  Psalm 118:17.

And in My work I am well pleased.  In the beginning I saw all I created was good.  And My masterpiece is you.  And I saw you were very good.

Yes, I am at work in you and for you even at this moment. I watch over your every breath and have all the hairs of your head counted.  I know when you sit and when you stand and before a word is on your tongue I know the whole of it.

I am at work in all My creation. And even in Heaven they are singing of My great and marvelous works.  Revelation 15:3.  And they are praising Me for My greatest work of all.  Jesus as your Savior.  The Lamb slain since before the foundation of the world.

Yes, My greatest work was and is your salvation.  Yeshuah.  My Spirit, My glory, raised Jesus from the dead, Romans 6:4, and seated Him at My right hand. Ephesians 1:19-23. And I raised you with Him and seated you there too. Ephesians 2:5-7.  This was the most mighty work of My power– to put all your sins upon Him and then raise Him from the dead with all your sins gone.  And now My Holy Spirit resides in the hearts of all believers, My power working in you to do far more than you can ask or imagine.  Ephesians 3:20.

Jesus did only the works I showed Him.  And what did He do?  He healed the sick, the blind and the lame, He raised from the dead, He cleansed lepers, He multiplied bread and fish, He forgave sins, He turned water into wine, and He was there to serve all your needs.

But let Him tell you Himself the work I am about:  “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to give recovery of sight to the blind, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”  I gave Him to you as your good Shepherd to lead you, guide you, protect you, feed you, deliver you, save you, and see to all your needs.

And do not forget the sanctifying work of My Holy Spirit.  1 Peter 1:2.  He is at work in you who believe at every moment. He gives life to your mortal bodies.  He gives you skill.  He testifies to you of Jesus and reminds you of all He said.  He leads you and guides you to all truth.  And He tells you of the things to come.  And He produces His fruit in you.

My prophet Isaiah wrote: LORD, You will establish peace (shalom) for us, since You have also performed for us all our works.  Isaiah 26:12.  Commit your works to Me and they will prosper.  Proverbs 16:3.  You will do the works Jesus did and greater because He is with Me and whatever you ask in His Name He will do.  John 14:12-13.

I love you.  Look about you and look in you and notice all the work I am about.  See My hand in all the good things that happen each day.  Look for them and proclaim all My wondrous works.  Do not forget My works or My Words for then you will know My ways and you will know Me.  And in My presence there is fullness of joy.
