“There is a cost to carry this anointing.
I the LORD said, count the cost, know that you must be willing to lay everything aside, to lay everything down.
Even as I provided a ram for Isaac, I provided one for you. Live and be.
Any man who puts his hand to the plow and turns back, is not worthy of Me, says the LORD.
But I have shed My Blood and done everything for you to have life, and have it more abundantly.
I have gone before you and I have prepared the way. You must walk in the ways I have prepared and anything less, will not do. There is a way that seems right to a man, but the way thereof, is death.
I have seen your heart and yes, your faith, but this is a time when you must press into the secret place.
I have given you strength, and encouraged you along the way.
I have seen you high and I have seen you low.
I have brought you thorough.
You know the pain of high and you know the pain of low, and you will know the glow, as we go.
You wonder why the battle. Nothing comes easy, especially without a fight. Fight the good fight of faith, for I AM with you. I chose you. I have plans and purposes for you.
Do not fear the darkest hour. I formed you in your Mother’s womb. I loved you before you knew Me.
I chose you, before the foundation of the world. I heard you say, “Yes LORD, I will come,” when I called your name.
I died for you before you were born, before you sinned, before you knew Me.
I provided for your weaknesses and even your sin. My grace is sufficient for you. I provided the Lamb.
When you repented of your sin, I forgave and made you clean and your sin as white as snow.
Though all the world would forsake you, I will never leave you, and never let you go.
Come and seek Me in that secret place. I will lift you up afresh and anew.
Do not ever question My forgiveness, for if you can picture stepping into the Courts of Heaven, not one finger would be pointing at you. I AM your Righteousness, not you.
So go My little lamb of light, follow after Me. Do not fear or be afraid. There is Glory yet to see.
I called you to walk in My righteousness. I gave it to you. I have called you for such a time as this.
There are so many. They are lost and undone. You have been there, you know.
Forget those things that are behind and press towards the mark, for the prize of the High Call of Christ Jesus our LORD.
I, the LORD, will see you through. Seek Me with your whole heart and know that I AM with you.
I AM true. I will never leave you nor forsake you. Not one thing can remove you from My hand.
As you walk out this year, the changes ahead will amaze you, and as you begin to see things My way, the more clearer your days will be.
I will reveal and I will heal. Do not fear, but always come to Me.
That which is hidden in darkness is never of Me, for I AM Light, exactly what I have called you to be.”
Amen and Amen.
