Set yourself on the firm foundation of truth. Focus on that which is good and righteous in order to be strengthened.

Settle down. Take a break from thinking about things that worry you. Look at life through the eyes of the Spirit to see the greatness of My Kingdom and your place in it. Be kind to yourself.

Take advantage of every review of the past to remind yourself of the unbounded, limitless, and life-saving effects of the blood of Christ that was shed on Calvary for you. It would be a colossal waste to spend this opportunity on regret and self-denigration. This is a time when you can draw near to Me in genuine worship from the depth of your heart, says the Lord. Be thankful.
2 Corinthians 4:15 “For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.”

In navigating your spiritual life, you have been able to overcome many if not most of the obvious things that have hindered your growth in the spirit.

Carefully consider your options for change. Use discernment in finding help to achieve your goals.

In a vision I saw myself looking down into a deep well, and I heard the LORD say, “Go deep. Many of you, My people, have skimmed the surface of what you consider to be relationship with Me. You have become complacent and satisfied with the shallows of the familiar. I want you to explore the depths. I want you to grow spiritually and go beyond your comfort zone to know Me better.”
John 4:11-14 “The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?” Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Consider well the spiritual seeds that you plant at this time, for they will indeed produce an abundant harvest.

You must face your difficulties head on. Trying to ignore or sidestep these issues will only make matters worse. Do not be afraid.

Deal with unresolved issues and settle disputes, for these are things that will hold you back and keep you from success in the days ahead. Forgiveness is required on every level if you are to move unhindered into the destiny that I have prepared for you, says the LORD Do nothing apart from the leading of My Spirit. Let love abound in your heart.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”

You are in a very special, supernatural season. This is a time for you, My people, to grow spiritually into My image, says the LORD Your supernatural abilities can be developed during this time.

Stay calm even when situations arise that tempt you to get flustered. It will be to your benefit to establish yourself in a place of peace.

Stir yourself up and renew your faith. Yes, there have been disappointments and setbacks, but those things can serve to strengthen your spiritual resolve. It depends on whether you choose to be a victim or to rise up to be an overcomer. You can allow your past difficulties to anchor you where you are. Or, you can allow them to fuel the next phase of your destiny, says the LORD
Romans 5:1-5 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
