The Lord had been speaking to me about clearing the clutter out of my work space and getting rid of old things, and getting my house in order, and I was praying over what He wanted me to do when He began to speak this word to me.
Tell My children the time has come for them to release the old and step into the new I have for them. Many of My children cling to the old in their lives because they fear loss. They fear regret, and they fear doing without. They are not trusting Me, the Holy One of Israel, for all things as I desire for them to do.
My children, do you not know the lateness of the hour? Do you not know all I have called you to accomplish in this hour? Do you not see that you cannot move forward while clinging to the past? You must release what is no longer useful in your lives to Me.
Trust Me to complete the good works I have begun in you in this time. Do not stand idly by, but do not fear either. Walk hand in hand with Me and I shall accomplish all I desire in you.
Many of you are in situations I did not intend for you, which are of your own making. Listen carefully for My voice and leading on how to proceed, that I may bring you to a place of fullness of purpose and blessing.
