I was praying about a message for Thursday night's Blog Talk Radio show when the Lord began to speak this to me.
Tell My children they must prepare for the coming year in a special way, a way unfamiliar to many of them. This next year will bring challenges many have not faced before, challenges you will be unfamiliar with. The challenges in each country will vary.
Many of you will be moving into a new spiritual level this next year, a new level in Me. This shall be a new level of My miraculous provision, something few of you are accustomed to.
It is imperative you remain calm as the changes take place in your lives that will take you to this new level. The enemy will do his best to get you to fear but I desire you fear not. I desire your complete trust and obedience. Those who will not obey Me and those who refuse to trust Me will find their paths difficult in coming months.
Some I am moving into the time of the fulfillment of your dreams and desires I Myself have placed in your hearts for just such a time as this. You have been refined and prepared that you may arise and shine in this hour.
Many of you who have veered from the path of what is right missed My original plan but I have another plan you will fulfill. Yes, there is still much work, My children, before the harvest and all have tasks to perform.
How much you have allowed Me to refine you determines how greatly you can be used in this time. If you have rejected knowledge, if you have rejected wisdom, if you refuse still to walk in My ways, what use shall you serve in the harvest of souls?
The new year upcoming shall bring shocking events, events you have not seen before. It shall be a year of firsts in so many ways. My true children shall remain unafraid, no matter what they see happen in the world.
The world about you is full of unrest, My children, and it groans for the return of My Son. More and increasing unrest is coming. It is a time when you will increasingly rely on My peace to sustain you, for nothing about you shall seem certain, and truly much is not what it appears to be.
Walk closer to Me still than ever before and I shall lead you in the way that you should go. There is a way that seems right in a man's own heart but you need My wisdom to survive this.
The way shall be dark before you as the days grow darker still. There is little light in the earth now and few who walk in My ways. I shall guide and protect My own, I shall light your way.
Walk close to Me each day. I will cause your path to shine before you.
