You do not need to fear what is ahead; fear is from the enemy to try and stop you. My word is go, but don’t go it alone – take Me with you. I know the way, the pitfalls, and undertows, I will guide you through.
Posturing yourself to hear Me is a good thing, the proud and haughty typically do not receive My invitation to talk, yet those who are meek and humble wait in anticipation desiring to hear, desiring to dialogue with Me; to them I am their strength, their guide, their hope, their love, and their God. They recognize their need for a relationship with Me. They know where their help comes from and seeks my counsel and wisdom. Not all who claim to be Mine truly know Me; to some I am simply fire insurance, to others I am life – present and eternal. Each of their own free will chooses, some ignore Me declining my invitation – ignoring My knock or tug on their hearts, while some open but remain superficial – only allowing Me just inside; still others dive deep – surrendering all and find the abundant life in Me which is far more precious than silver or gold. Ah, that all would dive in deep; what about you, what will you do? Come taste and see that I am good, find the joys of a life surrendered to Me.
Write it, write it big, don’t let it out of your sight, keep the vision clear. Voice it, let it take life. Don’t hide the dream under a basket, don’t put it into the back of the closet , bring it out into the light. Life and dreams flourish in the Light. Let faith and hope arise once more, don’t let fear crowd it out, or shame throw a blanket over it, hold them up to Me. Let Me breathe life into them. Hold tight to the desires of your heart, don’t let them slip through your fingers. Don’t let the logical and reasonable steal your unfettered childlike faith that all things are possible in Me.
Prepare to run the race with swiftness. Now is the time of preparation so we can endure to the end of the race. In the middle of a race is not the time to prepare, the time is before we begin. Build up endurance and strength that you don’t faint in the middle. The Holy Spirit will be our trainer. As we run along the path He will be there to encourage and refresh us; giving nourishment to sustain us. The Lord will be at the end when we cross the finish line into victory and eternal glory.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24
