A Word From The Lord To Build Up And Comfort You As You Walk With The Lord.

I Have Been Preparing You

SEPTEMBER 10, 2012
I know it seems I have allowed you to be tested beyond what you thought you could bear, and that you’ve come to the edge of defeat and failure.  But it was during those times that you have found out how much I loved you and that I would never leave or forsake you.  I was there with you all the time in the midst of all you were going through.  My hand was always upon you and the situation; I never took My eyes off of you.  What you thought was going to take you under, only made you stronger.  I have been preparing you and building you up for such a time as this.  

I know at times you felt others did not understand you—much less did you understand yourself? Confusion covered you and you felt alone.  You felt everything around you seemed to be closed off to you. While you were hidden away I was working.  Look at what being closed off has done for you; now you are coming forth refined as pure gold. You are not the same person you once were. You are becoming more like Me. Isn’t that what you wanted?  Begin to say “Christ dwells in me, He is mine and I am His”

All that you went through, all that was done to you; I have taken and used it.  All the past mistakes and failures which were meant to destroy or even kill you, I have taken and formed you into a strong warrior.  You may have scars but they are marks of your testing. They are medals of your battles.  Lift your head up and say “The Lord has prevailed in my life”  Look forward, no longer hang onto the past.  There is nothing there for you anymore. 

Remember the words I have spoken and getting ready to move forward. All is before you, nothing is behind you. Hold to My words and reject the lies of the past.  You have been prepared; stand, ready-listen to My voice.  I have seasoned you with testing and trials--you are well ready. You are ready because I have prepared you
Job 23:10 But he knows the way that I take: when he has tested me, I shall come forth as gold

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do,  forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Remember this, there is nothing you will face today that the Lord won't see you through. Thank God for what you have. Trust God for what you need.
