Take up your cross and follow me.. Open my book of Truth and begin your journey. I will show you my purpose, my heart, my will, and my ways. My spirit will come upon you, and my heart will become one with yours. My engrafted word will begin to change your ideas, your words, your prayers, your crowd, but most importantly, My word will begin to change your heart.
You will face rejection, you will face persecution, ridicule, and you will experience humiliation in your service to me, Opposition will make you feel as if though you are alone. But, I am the Lord, your God and I will send my people to help you, They will teach you, give you guidance, and they will encourage you. I will begin to give you revelation to my word and begin to unravel my plans for my church and my plans for you. I will strengthen you to stand in my great love as I use these trials and sufferings to show you the hinderances and blinders that occupy your heart and mind; these things that stop you from seeing and experiencing My Glory.
Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, remember I am the Potter and you are the clay… you are the work of my powerful hand. You have answered the call of Adonai, and I will show you The Great I AM! You will learn that apart from me you can do nothing. I need your total dependence on me so that you do not compromise my will and my words. Do not fear and do not be troubled because as I begin to shift your atmosphere and pull you from your comfort zone, you will remember my words “ Never will I leave you and Never will I forsake you” You will know the price and pain for following me, you will shed many tears but I will keep you grounded in my word and under my wings you shall take refuge. I will redeem you and I will give you strength to endure. I will be with you every step of the way to guide you and protect you. I will refine you and begin to raise up a David and the world will see that you are being trained by me and you are grounded in My Truth.
You will walk in my perfect and unfailing love, and my Church, my Bride, whom I call my Beloved will be your primary priority. I will bestow my powerful mantle upon you. You will cast out demons in my name, you will heal the sick in my name, and as you stay close to me I will share my plans for the future of my people. You will go forth into the world and You will speak my heart to the nations. You will lead my people to salvation and freedom. I Am the Way, I Am the Truth, and I Am the Life, and no one comes to Father except through Me. I Am The Door to the sheepfold.. and I Am your Great Shepherd. Do not try and rush my plan or get ahead of my timing. Keep your eyes focused on ME and Trust that I AM in sovereign control of all things.
