I know that in this hour you see your strength as small and that is why I am calling you to lean on the mighty arm of God, your Strength. Even now as the enemy taunts you with words of weakness I command you to be bold and very courageous and remember that My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Do not be afraid My child for I Am with you to lead you and to guide you along this path. Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4). Though you may stumble you will never fall. And though the path seems increasingly surmounting to you and even treacherous and bewildering at times; I say, do not be afraid. I am your Guide and your Companion I will never leave you nor forsake you. My promises to you are still yes and Amen and remember I am not a man that I should lie; I will not change My mind. Be reminded of My promises to you and know that I have not forgotten them. No longer are you to yoke yourself to things that have held you in bondage in days past but I am saying to you, yoke yourself to Me the Author and Finisher of your faith for My yoke is easy and it will build you up and strengthen you for the next leg of this race. You are in a place of preparation where I am building in you Godly-character and Godly-integrity. When you emerge from this place of preparation you will find yourself in a place of commissioning, consecrated, set-apart for the work that I have assigned to you to do. You are being positioned into a place of your God-appointed, God-ordained destiny in service to the King and the Kingdom. There is a time of fulfilling upon you and though it hastens My beloved; it shall come to pass. Cry out, cry out and when I hear you I shall deliver you; I shall not despise your tears. There is a place of deliverance that I have prepared for you. There is a day of restoration of all that has been stolen and held back from you. And even as you diligently press forward you are coming into a place of maturity in Christ. And rejoice, rejoice in Me for in that day I have ordained that your confession of faith will be, “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. (Psalm 119:71). Beloved child I am commanding you this day be strong and courageous; I Am with you. Be of great hope and wait in expectation for no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what I have prepared for you because you love me, says the Lord."
Joshua 1:8-9(Amplified Bible)”This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. 9Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
