Exodus 33:14-16 (NIV) “The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 15 Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. 16 How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
And the Lord says, Many of My children have gotten out from the place where I have planted them and are neglecting to rest in My perfect timing. You have allowed circumstances to keep you from standing shore-footedly in your place of assignment. I say to you in-spite of all; stand and stay in your position. Many have been caught out of position. Many have allowed the enemy to lure them into a place that I have not ordained. Many have listened to the voice of another and have allowed their circumstances, situations and emotions to deafen their ears to the voice of their Shepherd. I say to you get back in line; get back into your position now. This position has been assigned to you, therefore, every provision has been made for you to be blessed, and for you to increase and multiply. This is also your ordained place of instruction and provision and as you stand in this place your adversary will indeed try to draw you out into unfamiliar territory. You must be persuaded that it is only your continued obedience in this assigned place that will protect you and propel you into your destiny. I have a hope and a future planned for you; do not get impatient and step out before Me. I have provision in this place so that you will always be fully satisfied. This place is the place of fulfillment and manifestation so do not weary in well doing and do not weary in waiting for just at the right time, if you faint not, you shall see the promise fulfilled. Do not lose hope for the promise now. Stay in position, stay in your assigned place and I will supply new courage and new boldness that is needed to press through the battle and into the promise.
Do not focus on the longevity of the staying in your position but instead stay focused on the fulfillment in My appointed time. Beloved, there is no true blessing to be had outside of Me and My perfect timing. I have told you not to think more highly of yourself than you ought. The devil has come in to pervert this and My children now suffer from a lack of identity and do not know who they are in Me. Beloved this is extreme error and it will lead to your eventual defeat. You must close your ears to the lies of the enemy and stand fast in your position. When you keep your position you will not fall prey to the devil’s lure because I am your God who covers you and keeps you. And you must know who you are in Me. You must know that I have declared that you are My beloved, overcomers, victorious, anointed, and My righteous ones who are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. As you come to know your identity in Me you will be able to stay in your assigned place.
Position yourselves to receive My blessings by getting into the places that I have called you to and staying there in that assigned place until I say to move or shift. You must not go anywhere that I do not lead you to go and do not leave anywhere until I tell instruct you to leave. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be costly; mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially. I will help you to get into proper position and grant you the grace to stay there if you will only submit and obey. It is in the place of obedience that My blessing flows. You have to follow My voice and allow Me to order your steps. Beloved I say this to you again lovingly, yet with all authority; stay in your assigned place until I say to move because at the appointed time I will instruct you in the way to go. Do not be caught out of your assigned place when My Spirit is ready to move.
