“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” | Isaiah 55:9
“I am doing a deep work in the hearts and lives of My people that is far beyond what you can see with the natural eye. Know that even amidst the chaos and confusion, My purposes are being fulfilled. Be assured, it is the enemy that comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I am the God who gives life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). I can and will take what the enemy has intended for harm and turn it into good (Genesis 50:20).
“I am creating a ‘divine pause’ in the hearts and lives of My people. I am ridding and removing that which no longer bears fruit in this season, as I am preparing you for the increase that is at hand. Don’t cling to the familiar, rather embrace the new things that I am doing in your life. I am causing you to reprioritize and see what is truly important. There are more opportunities now than ever before for you to reach out to this lost and hurting world and show them My love. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and walk into the unknown with Me, for surely I will be with you wherever I go. You will know and experience Me in this season as Jehovah Jireh: the God who provides. You shall lack nothing and never cease to bear fruit (Jeremiah 17:7-8).
“Know that this is a season in which I am drawing you apart and doing a deep work in your life. Even as the caterpillar must undergo a time of separation as he remains in his cocoon, deep and hidden work is all the while taking place. Even though the process can be painful, he is being completely transformed. When the caterpillar emerges from his cacoon, new life abounds; the old is completely gone. He is changed from the inside out! Allow Me to complete this same transformation in your heart and life, and be encouraged that it’s a good work that I’m doing. Though you presently feel in an isolated and restricted place (like the caterpillar feels in the cacoon), soon you will break out into a wide and spacious place: a place of freedom!
“My child, your life is in the palm of My hands. You are like the clay on the potter’s wheel. Continue to allow Me to mold you, and watch as you come forth completely new, free from the things that used to restrict you. Rejoice! My purposes are being fulfilled!”
“He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me” (Psalms 18:19).
