This is a season of alignment for My people.  Although it seems chaotic at times and My movements don’t make sense to you, there are many that are being shifted into new positions.  I am not raising up an individual to bring forth revival, but a body that is made up of many parts, and when this body rises, there will be a release of My glory and power throughout the earth such has not been witnessed before.  Yes, there is an unseen hand at work in the world today, and it belongs to Me.  I am preparing for Myself a covenant people totally surrendered to Me – overcomers – that will march forth in victory to possess the land.  Trust that I am positioning you exactly where you are meant to be.  Joel 2:11a, “The LORD shouts orders to His forces – His army is immense and mighty, and it does what He says.”

You must get past this idea that life is defined by the sum of your actions.  This is not so.  There is so much lifeless activity that exists only in form and function. Be wary, for the enemy would have you waste your time and energies on that which only functions, but never really lives.  I came that life would be yours in abundance. If you’ll remain in Me, I will breathe My life into the works of your hands just as I breathed life into the works of My hands, and it will not just function, but it will become a living thing that brings Me glory.  Remember – apart from Me you can do nothing. Gen. 2:7, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

It’s time to get up and go up to the place that I have shown you.  Do not question that you pass through where you’ve been before – this is to your benefit.  There are things that you must have done with and bury as you move into your destiny.  It is also essential that you see the past from the perspective of someone made new in Me, rather than the broken individual you were at that time.  However, where you’ve been is not where you will end up.  I am taking you to a new place – a place of exponential reproduction of My life in you.  So now, get up and go up, leaving behind the past to step into your future, confident that I am before you, preparing your place.  Gen. 35:1-3, “God said to Jacob, ‘Get up, go up to Bethel and live there, and make there an altar to God, who appeared to you when you fled Esau your brother.’  Then Jacob said to his household and all the others with him, ‘Get rid of the foreign gods that you have with you, purify yourselves, and put on fresh clothes.  We’re going to move on and go up to Bethel.  There I will build an altar to God, who answered me when I was in such distress and stayed with me wherever I went.’”

You must learn to trust Me with the hurts of your heart and the people that caused them.  Yes, many are My children that have not yet been perfected in love, but I remind you, neither have you.  As a parent, you constantly remind your children to “get along” and to “love one another.”  This reflects a portion of what I do within My church.  Trust Me that I will discipline appropriately and bring healing to those relationships.  To try to fix things on your own will only bring further damage and hurt to yourself.  Allow Me to do a perfect work in you and in them, so that having been restored and reconciled, you can move forward for My glory and accomplish what I asked of you when I brought you together at the beginning.  I Peter 5:10, “But the God of all grace, who has called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.”
