“Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men”” Matthew 4:9 NKJV.
My child, it is time to grow up into the mature child of God I have called you to be. It is time to stand as a seasoned and tried warrior who is fit for the duty of service in the field.
You are not to despise the process of maturing. In the natural you see the flower come forth and then see the fruit as it develops on the plant. There is a process that must have its fullness accomplished before the fruit is ready to be eaten.
In like manner, you have been going through a process that has formed My fruit in you. You were called to be conformed to My image to be a witness and an ambassador for Me. This is the narrow road that the flesh wants to avoid. But in truth, it is the only way to become one with Me.
I did not take the easy road. I walked the way as a trailblazer. I demonstrated the exceedingly great benefits of obedience. I manifested the love of the Father openly defeating the works of evil: Yes, even through the Cross.
Gird up your belt and pick up your sword. Wear the armor I have given to you and follow Me. The days of great exploits are upon you. Listen for My call as I direct your steps to keep you from stumbling.
Receive My grace as I release greater revelation to you about your assignment. Shalom.
