The sounding of the alarm is not so that you can hide, burying your head in the sand.  It sounds so that you will know where to run to when the attack comes.  You must boldly confront the enemy in My might.  Fear has tricked you into thinking that retreat is the better way, but you are designed to meet challenges.  Even your cells are designed to race towards and evict that which would bring you harm.  When next you hear the alarm in your own life or within My Body, run towards the sound of the trumpet, clothed in My armor with the sword of My Spirit drawn, for that is where I, the Commander of the Hosts of Heaven will be, as both your refuge and your strength.  Ps. 144:1-2a, “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle – my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge.”

Despair is the antithesis of hope. Don’t allow unfulfilled expectation to destroy your spirit. I understand your disappointment that things are not proceeding according to your plan, even to the point of questioning where you go from here. Let your hope in Me be your anchor.  In the end, all will be fulfilled according to My desire, and your distress will pass.  You will look back at this moment in time and see that this path I’ve allowed you to walk is full of My goodness and grace. You will reap if you faint not.  2 Cor. 4:8-9, “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed.  We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.  We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God.  We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.”
