I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. | Philippians 3:14
“Keep moving forward, Beloved! There will be people in your life, even some who were once close to you, who will refuse to see you as the new creation I have called you to be. They’ll attempt to keep you hemmed in, trying to define you by the things of your past. However, remain confident that My blood speaks a better word over you (Hebrews 12:24). You are not who the world says you are; you are My beloved child in whom I am well pleased.
“Like the caterpillar, you have crawled out of the tight place of restriction and confinement that once held you in bondage. Now I have brought you into a wide and spacious place, because My delight is in you (Psalm 18:19). You will continue to soar to new heights with Me, and the world will be amazed by the places I take you!”
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand (Psalm 40:2).
“Do not be swayed by the thoughts and opinions of others, for even as it is written in My Word, “When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, I make even his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7). You owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8). Though the path seems lonely at times, keep moving forward, just as a brave soldier marches into battle. I will open up the way before you and turn your darkness into light.
I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, in paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them and rugged places into plains. These are the things I will do, and I will not leave them undone (Isaiah 42:16).
“Alignment is key in this season. Stay aligned with Me, and trust in where I lead. I will send you reinforcements, people who will celebrate and partner with you, to help carry out the God-given visions and assignments that I’ve placed within you. Be strong and courageous, for I, the Lord, am with you! Everywhere your foot treads, I will give you the land,” says the Lord!
