Beloved. Suddenly, even in your darkness, My Light shall dawn. Out of the blue, My Glory shall appear.
Do not faint, Dear One. You shall see My Goodness in the land of the living. I delight in you because you have honored and loved My Name. Do not be afraid of evil tidings.
Fix your heart to trust in your Savior. I AM in your midst. I have confounded the enemy. His desire to destroy you shall come to naught. Surely, the wicked one shall see My Hand upon you and your descendants.
The mountains he has built up before you shall melt away and your desert shall flow with streams of Living Water. His evil plans for you shall be as chaff blown away by the Wind of My Spirit. It will happen instantly, suddenly. I have declared GOOD things for you long ago, My Child.
Even before you were born, I proclaimed them. My plans for you went forth from My Mouth and they shall be accomplished. It is finished. When you least expect it, your mourning shall be exchanged for gladness and your tears into shouts of joy.
It will be suddenly and unexpectedly, that way you will have no time to doubt it.
Yes, Beloved. The world shall look upon you and be astonished at My Goodness, for I AM doing a work in this day, that even if it were announced ahead of time, you would not believe it. Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit shall it come to pass. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts shall perform this.
