A Word For Those That Are Struggling
So many of My people are struggling with things in their life. Have I allowed
these struggles? Yea, I have, saith the Lord God. There is a strength and
agility that comes as My people work through their struggles. It is like unto
the butterfly that is still in the cocoon. As it matures there is a vigorous
struggle to break free of the cocoon that encompasses it. Were it not for this
struggle it would not have the strength in its body and its wings to fly when
the cocoon burst open. It would be weak, crippled and would eventually die.
It is a part of the overcoming process that each of My children must go through.
I carefully watch over each one as they gain this much needed strength that
comes forth from the struggle, and I gently whisper words of encouragement to
assure them that I am still with them. I said that I would never leave them or
forsake them, and in the midst of their struggles I make Myself known to them. I
will speak to them through the voice of many waters ,yea even through My
people,. those that hear My Spirit and allow Him to speak through them to bring
words of hope and encouragement.
In this place the battle rages as the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy.
Speaking to the hearts and minds of My people words of discouragement, failure,
and yea even death. And he also has emissaries that speak for him to cause fear,
doubt, and unbelief to rise up in the hearts of My own to try to steal the
victory that My Son died for them to have.
In your weakness I will be strong, but the struggles have come to birth within
you a strength and agility that you need to go higher than you have ever been
before. As you struggle like the butterfly in the cocoon know that you will
break forth with new life and a power and strength that you have never known
before. It will even carry you to greater heights, a new anointing, and greater
works than My Son did you will do. The struggles will cause you to know your
God, be strong, and do exploits. You will emerge from your struggles with
strength and agility beyond anything that you have ever known.
