God is removing people from our lives that cannot go with us. God takes us into our destiny, and not everyone can go. There are people who cannot possibly understand nor are they prepared so don’t hang on to people too tightly, love them, tell them they will be missed and forgive them if there is hurt, release them, and let them go! God has his reasons.
“Many of MY hidden ones are going through VERY difficult testing to expand their territory and in stretching them beyond their gifting. Not everyone will know you and understand the gifting you carry, and it is impossible to try and explain why you must go. Love them, release them, and let them go. You heard my voice, so smile and walk on!”
The enemy is throwing everything at us, and we must keep telling ourselves, God will not allow more than we can bear. You will come through all these trials and tests with increased wisdom so that you are stronger and smarter and abound much more than before.
“For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Christ.” 2 Cor 1:5
“Finally, then, brothers, we beg and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, that you abound more and more.” 1 Thes 4:1
Believing remnants, we need to be quick to listen and believe what God is showing us. Everything lately has been about things being done quickly with urgency. There’s a Holy hush that God has released in the Spirit realm; But the remnant needs to quit fighting and striving with anxiety, worry and fear.
He will strengthen us so that we shall abound in every great work for His name. So, do not fear the loss of people or things for He is imparting and birthing new things and new methods to equip you in this most exciting time to be alive! You will have everything you need!
It is time to stop wrestling with the things that are around you that seek to keep you distracted, hindered, unheard, and worn out. We must focus on birthing and learn to go with the pain and not complain so that we profit from the pain and our focus becomes clearly on the Lord.
To transition in labor, you must be crowned and go to 10. God is transitioning us to go through wider doors with more expanse and he has got to take us into a testing place to teach us how it’s done.
“Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.” Isaiah 66:8
The Lord allows the devil to face off with you. If you are a trainer of a boxer, you get the best and strongest sparring partner and let the boxer get knocked down a few times to strengthen the attacks, resolve, and conditions of faith. God is taking us from a punching bag experience to one that is expanded, and to challenge our faith in the ring. God wants to use special tests that prepare us for our ministry and life. Even amid fear, acknowledge God and yield to this test for it has a purpose, to make you strong against Satan.
Now realize and say this! This is not my problem anymore. I am going to trust the Lord. Are you going to yield to fear when things come against you or are you NOW going to see this for what it is?! We must take hold of our flesh bringing it into subjection to the Spirit. Remember, that the flesh is not our friend, and we battle it daily even more than the enemy. In this case we take our flesh captive making it endure the test and trial because we KNOW that we will be much stronger.
The more intense the training the more power God is releasing for His chosen vessels. Special trials and special training mean special forces that only God knows! No one knows what God has built within a particular soul of a vessel. However, God prepares the person so well that they shall not fail, and they shall face legions upon legions but there will be legions upon legions of angels too! These chosen vessels are not alone for God is with them to will and do through them of His good pleasure.
“As for Me,” says the LORD, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the LORD, “from this time and forevermore.” Isaiah 59:23 NKJV
“I AM your God and your exceeding great reward. No evil shall befall you nor any plague come near your dwelling for I have given many angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways, and in your pathway, there is life.”
“Stop watching what provokes you to panicking and investigate deeper in MY Word and then you shall trust. Don’t worry about your ministry, it’s My ministry I will care for it for I fashioned it within you so do not worry about any need.”
“The enemy is trying to distract and wear you out, keeping you chasing your tail. Lay it all down, give it all to Me, your lives, family, ministry, and everything you are entrusted with. When others fear what they see happening in the world and what happens to you, glorify Me because you shall witness and testify that there is no fear in God! Perfect love casts out all fear!”
“You are not going to fear that day and shall have a deep peace residing in you and you have seen Me in operation, and you know the difference. For you are not of this world, you are My ambassador, and you are on assignment, but your permanent address is in heaven.”
“Remember when the prophet and his servant were surrounded by armies to take them, and the servant feared what he saw with his eyes? The prophet didn’t fear because he knew God and he asked God to open his servants’ eyes and when he did there were many angels on chariots and horses of fire surrounding them.
“And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:17
“Keep it simple and don’t worry about those who would call you down from work. Yes, you are disabled due to many things but keep pressing into prayer and fasting. Do not worry or feed it anymore because if you stop feeding it, it will die.”
“Do not continue to be anxious about what you can’t see that is happening behind the scenes either, because nothing is hidden from Me, and nothing is beyond my grasp. I will take care of it because it belongs to ME. Trust Me to take care of you! You are fearfully and wonderfully made, and I delight in you so trust ME for everything! I AM the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! And it is the great I AM that is fighting your battles!”
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
