Hebrews 3:12 (MSG) “So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it's still God's Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn't slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we're in this with Christ for the long haul. These words keep ringing in our ears: Today, please listen; don't turn a deaf ear as in the bitter uprising.”
Know this today My child; My desire is to see you walk in the fullness of your anointing, establishing yourself in My complete Love for you so that you will not allow the devil to come in any longer and cause distraction and delay. In this hour I will no longer overlook your unbelief. I know that you have been in a hard place, a difficult and challenging place; a place of much trial and tribulation but have I not said, in the world you will have tribulation and trials, distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you. (John 6:33). I have told you these things so that in Me you can have peace and be confident in My unconditional and perfect love for you. Today I say to you strengthen your weak knees and arise in Strength once again. Take courage in your fretting and unbelieving heart and trust again. You must know and believe that what I have said is true. No longer are you to waver in your faith because I have declared that without faith it is impossible to please Me. I see your heart and your desire to pursue My promise in your life but as I have also declared he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6) My precious one I have not forgotten you, nor have I forsaken you. You are not abandoned. You must rest assuredly that your time of recompense has come. Everything that has been stolen shall be restored to you. I will reward your faithful intercession, travail and petition before Me. Even that which you have been birthing in great travail will come forth in this season. You must not fear. But, be on alert because your unbelief will stagnate you. It will cause you to be fruitless or keep you from walking in the fullness of that which I have already prepared for you. This is a season of fullness and you must be a vessel prepared for My fullness. You must understand that your unbelief and your lack of faith in Me and My power to deliver you creates an atmosphere that cannot be receptive to the fullness of My power. You have each been given a measure of faith that is more than enough when it is wrapped in My grace so be encouraged in My grace. Your unbelief also keeps the fullness of My Power from being displayed in and through you. In other words, you will be hindered in your ability to do, to say and to be as I have decreed for your life. My Beloved children watch your step, be careful how you proceed in this hour. If you continue to step forward in unbelief you will develop a hardness of heart with each step you take. But, if you should take each step in faith and trust nothing will be impossible to you and all which you have faith for Me to do shall be done unto you. Your next steps will be crucial so watch your step and consider if they will be steps of unbelief or steps of faith. Steps of fear and doubt rooted in unbelief will pollute your spirit and lead you into despair and disobedience. But, steps of trust and faith rooted in total belief will cause you such freedom that it will free your spirit and propel you into My perfect rest and into your destiny, says the Lord.
