A Quicker Pace Than You Realize
This is a day of new beginnings.
The Word of God says, “Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past.
See, I AM doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it; shall you not know it?”
The Spirit of the LORD is making things known to you, and making things known FOR you, so you that you will comprehend that His presence is near.
He is drawing you to the Holy of Holies. He is directing your steps at a quicker pace than you realize, so that you can and will enter the door He has for you.
Other things, the natural things, may seem like they are slowing down, almost coming to a halt, but the purposes of God are accelerating, developing at breakneck speed.
It is the LORD who is carrying you along with the accelerating pace He has set for you. Your own mind cannot comprehend all the He is doing, but start to believe this one thing in such a time as this: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived (or known) what God has prepared for those who love Him, but God has revealed (and is revealing) it to us by His Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God!
Therefor do not throw away your confidence in the LORD, for there is great reward ahead of you, for you will receive the promise after you have done the will of God. And what is that will?
He is drawing you to the Holy of Holies. He wants you to seek Him, and only Him.
For He says “I AM your shield, I AM your exceedingly great reward.”
It is time to answer the call.
He Keeps ALL His Promises!
“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD.
“My Spirit, who is on you, and My words that I have put in your mouth will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.
(Now) “Arise and shine for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and His glory appears over you.”
The LORD has given you the ability, by the power of the Holy Spirit to grasp what is the length, the depth, the width and the height and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.
He is making this known to you by revelation of His promises; promises that cause you to be empowered with the gifts and calling He bestows on you.
He does not change His mind about these things; He fulfills what He says to you because of His love for you; the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
He promises these things for your life for It has always been His intent for you to succeed in your walk with Him. Therefore, He keeps His promises and fulfills them.
Therefore, in your spirit, your are enabled, by the power of His Word that He declares will not depart from your mouth.
You now can Arise and Shine for your Light has come. The glory of the LORD is rising upon you, and the Glory of the LORD is being manifest more and more every day that you walk with Him, and walk in Him.
For “It is in Him that we live and move and have our being.” He has showed you, O man, what is good.
Now what does the LORD require of you? To do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
