Hear the Word of The LORD!
I am seeing a very deep pit, at the bottom of this pit it is dark and lonely.
You are in this pit. In the pit you are faced with every kind of emotion and personal challenge.
You have been facing yourself in the pit, confronted with all that is out of place and all that is misplaced that would like to change about yourself and your present circumstances.
The pit is frustrating to you and is confrontational in every way, revealing what you hate to see and to feel about yourself and about your life at present.
I see several ropes coming from the mouth of this pit.
The LORD is saying that you are busy rescuing yourself from the pit of your despair and that you are attempting to pull yourself out of this pit.
You desperately seek to recapture and reinvent yourself to who you were before you found yourself being cast into this pit through circumstances beyond your control.
Hear what the LORD is saying to you …
“You will succeed in freeing yourself from this pit and you will succeed in establishing yourself to the position and the place where you once were and that you seek to recapture.
In the realm of the natural, you will be perfectly restored.
However know this —In the process of doing so, you will forfeit the destiny that I have for you.
That which you have asked Me to bring about when you asked Me and when you cried to Me, “Use me for Your Kingdom and Your glory, oh God!”
That you will forfeit in “finding yourself” as you come out of the pit.
For it is through the pit that you would have been carried away from all you previously were, all you previously knew and all you previously lived for, to a new life and a foreign experience in Me that you knew nothing of and had no part in previously.
It is in this new life and this foreign place where you would have come into a whole new life that I have destined for you to live in service of Me to bring Me Glory.
The pit you are escaping from is the very pit leading you into your destiny.
It was My pit that I had created for you. The challenges you faced in the pit were the challenges that was needed to reform you, not to destroy you.
Know that in escaping the process you will forfeit My destiny for you!” says the LORD.
