No, that is not for you. Let it go. I know you think it is what you need, but you must let it go. It will hurt you if you do not let it go. I have something better for you, but you must let go of the old. Oh, I know it may have felt right, and things appear to have been falling in place. Things are not always what they seem. What you are feeling is not from Me. You are walking after the flesh and not in the Spirit. Let it go.
I understand you have needs. I understand what you are feeling. I do not want this to hurt you, and it will if you do not let it go. Do not allow it to destroy all that you have worked so hard to obtain. I want you to release the pain of the past and move ahead with Me. You cannot bring the past with you. You cannot hold onto it while walking with Me. It has no place with Me; I am your future. Let it go.
Those who know that you belong to Me are watching you, and they are watching to see what a difference it makes to have Me in your life. They are watching you in the good times, and even more in the bad times. They are watching to see if your love for Me is strong enough to keep you holding onto My word. They are watching to see whether you will praise your way out of this situation, or if you turn aside and doubt that My word is true. What will they see?
Will they see a life of blessed assurance or will they see a life of regret? Will they see evidence that My Spirit is sustaining you, and transforming you, or will they see no change at all? Will they see you filled with My glory and able to overcome all that comes against them by the power of My word, or will they see someone who is defeated; and does not know how to walk in the authority that I have given them? What will they see?
Take My hand and walk with Me. Be at peace this day and walk with Me in the coolness of the morning. Be still your soul and walk with Me in the evening dawn. Don’t let your heart be troubled this day. Don’t let a spirit of fear overcome you; be filled with power, love and a sound mind. Listen to My words and know that I am with you. Put your faith in Me. Put your trust in Me. Let My peace guide you throughout your day. Let My wisdom fill your house. Don’t be reeled to and fro and act like the world. I in you and you in Me; we are one. Walk as I walk; see as I see.
Cleave to Me and flow in My spirit. Do not try to flow in the world, but flow with Me. Abide with Me. I desire for you to be focused on the path I have shown you to go. I desire for you to think about Me throughout your day, and not on the things the enemy is trying to do. Why do you focus on these things, and not on Me? Thinking about negative things won’t bless you. I hear more complaining about what you didn’t get, than praise for the blessings you received, and it concerns Me. In everything give thanks, and you will be more heavenly minded.
Right now you cannot see how this change is a good thing or even how it will work out for your good later. You want to do something about it, but you don’t know what to do. My child, there is nothing for you to do except hold on to what you know is true. Hold on to My word, you know My word is true. My word said, “All things work together for good to those who love Me,” and it’s true. I am working it for your good. I don’t want you to be hurt. Please trust Me.
My child, I understand how you’re feeling. I see your heart, and I know the pain you are feeling. I want you to release your pain to Me. I won’t leave you without hope. I know you don’t understand why it happened this way, and it will take some time before you understand it was for the best. Because even as we speak, I am interceding on your behalf, doing what needs to be done to bring glory to your situation.
Some of you are giving up because you can’t see any outward sign of progress. Why are you letting go of the dreams which I gave you? Don’t you know that’s what the enemy wants you to do? My Word is true, and I will fulfill that which I have spoken to you; this is a promise. Don’t give up.
Dear child, I know this season has been a test of faith waiting for the fulfillment of My promise, which has not come. Must I remind you that I work according to My timing, not yours? I am not slack concerning fulfilling My Word. I will perform that which I have spoken, and I will do it in the manner which I have purposed. I Am that I Am. I will perform My word. The words which I speak shall not return to Me void.
Despite the surrounding situation, hold fast to what you know is true; My word. Has quitting ever accomplished anything? No, and it and it never will. Why not put your faith in the One Who is always faithful? Hold fast; I Am faithful, and I will fulfill My word.
Read and Meditate on His Word:
Psa. 119:160 Your Word is true from the beginning, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
1Th 5:24 Faithful is He who called you, who also will do it.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Isa 46:11 …Yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it,
I will also do it.
I promised you that I would do it, and I will. However, it will be done in My way and in My timing. My ways and My timing are often different than what you expect. However, they are perfect, and they are right. My timing is always the best timing, and My ways are higher than yours. I’ve shared with you in My word many times, so trust that I know what I’m doing.
You know only what you perceive and see, but I know every dimension of everything that is going on in your situation. I know the spiritual forces that are at work against you and what strategies they are taking. I know the things that you cannot anticipate, and they will not catch Me by surprise. I take every one of these factors into consideration when I choose to work on your behalf and bring My glory to your life. I want you to know that I am always at work in your circumstances to turn them into My glory.
