My children, beautiful and lovely are the feet of those who carry the gospel of good tidings to a people who need to hear. I, even I, am your Shepherd, the author and the finisher of your faith. Can you trust Me?
For now is a time to make changes. Now is a time to clean up and clean out. That does not mean that you are not My children or your life is not good, it means that I AM maturing you in Me.
Release all that you have. Look for the doors I AM opening. Do not look at the doors I have closed. There is no looking back, only going forward. I have better things for you, increasing revelation of the Kingdom, releasing more light of the Kingdom as you will minister out of the Holy place from behind the veil, as I am taking you to new levels.
Are you ready and are you willing to lay it all down, all that you have, all that you are, and take up your cross and follow Me? Have I not said, in this world you will have tribulation and, yes, as long as you are in this body of flesh and in this earthly realm you will have tribulations?
I have given you every weapon you need to live the victorious life. Raise the Banner High for Me and begin to rejoice and praise Me! My children in the wilderness complained for they were a rebellious people but I have better things for you than that. You must be a follower and you must be willing to hear My voice and obey My voice.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers them out of them all. Not one of My children is perfect, for I have NOT looked for perfection in My children. The sacrifice of My Son was once and for all the only perfection.
The flesh wars against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh. I have given you Grace that is sufficient for you. Though many trials and tribulations will come, My grace is sufficient for you in all things.
“It’s God’s Word, not mine…”
