I speak to you who have faced discouragement and disappointment, and it seems as though every time you get a little strength and rise up in expectation, your hopes are dashed to pieces. As you look around, it seems like you’ve been in this place of desolation forever and that there is no way out of this desert. These trials are for the purpose of strengthening you and bringing you to greater faith and power in My kingdom. You have been in a time of shaking and preparation for what lies just ahead of you. Do not despise this time of preparation, for it is absolutely necessary in your spiritual growth.
I have been preparing you and giving you a most unique opportunity to know more of Me and to prove your faithfulness. I have not forgotten you, nor have I forsaken you. I am still as close as the whisper of My name. Don’t allow your anger and frustration to build a barrier between us. Tear down the wall of defensiveness between us and abide with Me as you go through this time of testing.
Take time to renew yourself in the truth of My word and stand against the fear that comes from hearing and believing the lies of the enemy. Refuse to crumble with despair and discouragement, for today is a new day. I tell you the truth you are on the very threshold of a new beginning, a time when doors will open before you to bring excellent opportunities to glorify the Father. Rejoice and be glad, for you are being molded and shaped for this positioning.
1Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
Have a Jesus filled day,
