The Lord desires for every one of us in the body of Christ to be strengthened for the days ahead. He wants us to be strong in Him for our brothers and sisters in Christ as well as for the unbelievers. He showed me someone walking on a treadmill. As they were walking, they started out at a fast pace, but then they began to lower the speed level on the console because they were not able to maintain the higher speed. Some of you are getting exhausted trying to return to the spiritual level that you once had. Jesus wants to give you peak performance in running the race with endurance but knowing that His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
The Lord says, allow Me to be your strength in the coming year. As you allow Me to take dominion over every area of your life, I will strengthen you in those things that you cannot do in your own ability. As you submit to My word of truth, it will sustain you as your daily bread. Trust Me in new opportunities and in the challenges ahead. Even though your destination may not be clear, don’t lose your focus. You have been set apart and called for My purposes. I will teach you how to run the race with endurance once again without striving. As you get back on track, put the past behind you and don’t allow distractions to throw you off balance.
I will bring people into your life that will walk with you. They will have the same vision, spiritual mindset and they will not bring disunity or division. I have also called them and designed them to be unique. Each one has a distinct plan and purpose, but they are all part of My body. They will come alongside and help you in your walk. Just as Aaron and Hur held up Moses hands when he got weary, I will put people in your life to hold you up when you are weighed down. I will bring intercessors to stand in the gap and pray for you. This is the time to rejoice because your best days are ahead as you follow Me with the plans that I have for you says the Lord.
Philippians 2:16“Holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.”
2 Timothy 4:7“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Hebrews 12:1-2 “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Blessings in Christ Jesus,
