I just heard the LORD speak to me and He said that this new year, will be a year that we must be focused on exactly what He is showing us will be our part.
He said “I AM focused on your success as you focus on my success, to reach others with the part that I have given you!
Get your eyes off of people and what they can do for you and get them on the One who can give true promotion!
This is a new season of great promotion in My Kingdom! Generals in the Kingdom will now be promoted and there will be advancement to Higher ground for My church! Focus on Me!”
You Will Gain New Strength as You Focus!
“Do not be distracted by ANYTHING else, It is time to focus!”
Then I heard Him say, “As you focus, it will give you the motivation and the strength to move toward the goals that I have purposed in My heart that shall become your goals and you will be able to work harder to obtain as you move, for I will give you supernatural strength like I gave Samson and like I gave Elijah when he outran the chariot!
My people who are focused this year, will seek Me for this strength and I will give it to them for your strength will come from your joy in believing! You have come to the end of yourself and now it is time to focus on Me!”
This Place is Too High for Me!
“Great joy will come as you believe me, trust Me and focus!”
I saw someone throwing themselves into the arms of the Father as He called you to jump from this high mountain cliff.
I saw you jumping in abandon from a place to which you had climbed, but now that you got yourself there, you could not figure how to get back down from this lofty place, as the Father called you back down where He wanted you.
Then I saw you FOCUS on Him and you just leaped downward with such great relief, because you had been trying to maintain this lofty place all on your own and it had gotten heavy.
You said in your heart, “if I could only get back there where things weren’t so heavy and just lay in the arms of My Father.”
I then saw the Father say “jump” and you jumped with full abandon and as you landed in His arms, you took a great sigh of relief!
It is time to Soar!
The LORD said, “Yes, I say to you who are weary from the battle, because you climbed too high, to a place that I had not told you to climb.
You have been maintaining in your own strength, but if you will lock eyes with me and take a leap back into My arms, then, I will give you My strength for advancement!
ONLY FOCUS ON ME THIS TIME. I want to show you great and mighty things to come, but you can not get ahead of Me, for I AM not obligated to help you when you move in your own strength and as you move with a wrong motive.
As you leap back into My arms, you will not need to climb the mountain this time, but you will SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE because you have WAITED on Me!
It truly will be a season to FOCUS on Me, soar to new Heights, outrun a chariot, leap over walls and slay a giant!
JUST FOCUS, LOCK EYES WITH ME AND REMEMBER, “IT’S NOT BY MIGHT, NOR POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT SAYS THE LORD!”
“But those who wait for the Lord, who expect, look for, and hope in Him, Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings and rise up close to God like eagles rising toward the sun; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.”Isaiah 40:31.
