Surely I am with you; I am more near than you think. I am taking care of you, My precious child, lovingly watching over you. Even the very hairs on your head are numbered and in my care. I am taking care of it all, big and small things alike. Trust Your Father.
You are in training as a warrior – a princess warrior. I’m so proud of you and how you have postured your heart, even when you didn’t understand the crushing process: the refiner’s fire, the pressing. Yet you’ve continued to cling to me even when you were hurting and confused.
Trust Me, I am weaving all things together for your good. You’re being refined like the gold. You will shine brightly and have an even greater testimony.You will be one who burns for me and testifies of the Father’s heart and His goodness. You’ll be released and empowered to impart to other hurting women what you have received.
“Freely you have received; freely give.”
My hand is on you for good, My daughter. I will show you that I can be trusted. I’m not like an earthly father; though earthly father’s know how to give good to their children, I can give you so much more. If you ask Me for bread, surely I’ll never give you a stone (Luke 11:13).
You are a woman of faith, and I honor that in you. I know it feels the opposite and you can’t see the whole picture right now, but My love for you has never changed. You are being made stronger through the struggle. You are arising and coming forth; spread your wings, My beautiful butterfly. You are about to soar to new heights with Me.
I tell you, nothing that’s happened over these past two years have been wasted or in vain. I am turning it around and bringing good out of it all, even the very things that have tormented you. As you enter into My rest, trust your Father’s heart concerning you. The things that once bothered and afflicted you will do so no more. I am bringing you into the long awaited breakthrough, and you’ll arise, finding healing in My wings (Malachi 4:2).
