New beginnings can be like starting to put together a puzzle.
First, find pieces that fit together and align with the design you can see. Then build around it with what agrees and strengthens the vision for the future.
If you have a dream of owning a home, look for what you desire in a house, research areas you might choose to live, research whether you can be prequalified for a loan, follow up with the steps necessary to secure the loan, etc.
New beginnings require faith that God is directing your steps.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD. And He takes great delight in doing this.
Before You Even Take A Step
The revelation is meant to propel you.
You can’t stay in the same place in your walk with the LORD.
You have been prepared for the realm that is seen by the LORD Who Sees and the God Who Knows.
He has seen the effectiveness of your obedience before you have even taken a step. His Presence and His Voice are the assurance of things hoped for; His Presence and His Voice are the evidence of the things not seen.
There is before you an effective open door that no man can shut.
“Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you know not.”
You will not be without the knowledge of what the LORD sees.
He will keep showing you portions until you are fully persuaded that what God has promised, He is able also to perform.
This Will Be For My Glory!
“To the weary, I will be your strength, to the broken, I will be your healer; to the down and out, I will be your comforter; to the lost, I will be your redeemer and I will set you upon the Rock of your salvation.
My Word will be revealed to you when you call upon Me,” says the LORD.
“I have not forgotten the precious moment when you first began to call upon Me, at a time when your life was in the vulnerable place, the place where you felt forgotten, alone and left out.
But I AM setting before you a new way and a new life where My Presence will be made known to you by the moving of My Spirit in your life.
And signs and wonders that you have never seen will suddenly be positioned around you that will reveal My intent, to show you that I will never leave you nor forsake you.
For the eye has not seen, nor the ear heard, nor has it entered the heart of man, the things which God has in store for you.
But I will make it known by My Spirit, yes, even the deep things of God.
For I will show you and reveal to you that the eyes of your understanding will suddenly be enlightened and you will know the hope of your calling.
The assurance of things hoped for will secure you and fill you.
My Power and My Presence will be unmistakable, and the Word that I send will be undeniably evident that I have sent it.
There will be the witness in your believing heart. I will be your assurance. This will be for My Glory.
For I AM your Shield and your exceedingly Great Reward,” says the LORD.
He Will Make It Unmistakable!
The LORD has already prepared you for tomorrow.
The Love that is necessary for the Word that Is sent, has been shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost.
You have opened your mouth wide so that He will fill it, and the Voice of the LORD will reveal the intent that belongs in the message, the Word you have received in your spirit.
You have been cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb, and the Word of His Testimony will prove to be led by the Spirit of Prophecy.
For the testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy.
Present yourself therefore as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which will be your worship.
Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you will prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Don’t worry about what you will say or how to project the LORD’s intent, for He will give you the Words to say in that hour.
He will manifest His compassion and wisdom through your life in such a way that will be unmistakable. He is faithful Who calls you, and He will do it.
Trust in the LORD with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Acknowledge Him in all that you do and He will direct your path.
They that are led by the Spirit of God, are the sons of God.
If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, ask what you will and it shall be done unto you.
