When you come to Me with your heart open and in all sincerity, you will find a very loving God who will open doors for you in places unknown to you and those around you. You will receive much guidance and all the necessary advancements in order that you may be equipped for each step to take, no matter how small. Sometimes, it is the small steps that carefully prepare the way and help to negotiate you around the many obstacles in your way.
Do not be concerned that you seem to be making little or no headway – it is in these times that you must wait on Me, for these are the times of great preparation around you – preparation that is necessary for the aggrandisement of My plans in you. Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
It is through the trials of your life that you will be given much enlightenment. It is through these trials that you will gain much understanding and insight. This insight can be applied to many other situations that will surround you in the times to come. This is how I equip you and what is referred to as equipping the saints.
Ephesians 4:11-13 AMP “And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, travelling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.”
PS When all these things are given to you, you shall be at a place where security and safety become a normal part of your existence, and nothing by any means shall ever harm you again! Luke 10:19 AMP “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpion, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.” Amen.
All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
