Children, though your days have been long, even tedious and your trials have been hard and the battle difficult to bear, I was there through it all and have brought you through to this very place you are today.
I have given you strength as it was needed. You are stronger than you think you are. As you are coming into a new season, a season of softening and a time of refreshing, joy will be yours. You have suffered for a little while. Mercy found you and your season is turning around into a season of blessing.
I AM pouring blessings for your life that you might bless others. I have spoken the word and caused your enemies to be scattered. I have raised up a standard against them. Today is a new day and a time of refreshing has come. Your time of refreshing is here. Reach out to Me. Focus your eyes upon Me. Linger here in My presence awhile, linger here! There is strength for the journey ahead. It will be lighter and it will become brighter.
The pathway seemed very narrow. Sometimes hurt came from every side. You wondered if a time of rest and refreshing would come. You are hungry and thirsting after eternal treasures. With everything seemingly against you, now is the time for change. No weapon formed against you will ever prosper. What seems to be so difficult will be the thing that brings you into a new place, refreshed and reformed, prepared for service.
You have been called by Me and there is none that can take you out of My hand. There is a time of rest coming, a time of overflow, a time where you will enjoy the River of God in an extreme measure. Love is being poured out on you as I, the Lord, touch and heal the wounds you have received along the way.
You are My child and you have sought Me through the “dark night of the soul”. I have called you into this time. Never before since creation has there been a time like this. The end of all time is at hand, the time of the “Awakening” is here now. Come; Follow Me!
I have placed new soil around you as a precious rose. I AM sending new manna to nourish you so that you will gain strength and nourishment. You will bloom and you will mature into full stature. I have personally chosen you and will teach you My ways, new ways and new strategies.
I will give you My thoughts as you seek Me daily. Fear not, My children! I AM with you and I will protect you from all harm.
I AM covering you and you will dwell under the shadow of My wing as your protection, covered and hidden away by Me from all evil. Rejoice! I have hidden you for just a moment. You can rest and gain strength in this moment.
Amen and Amen.
