After you have done all you can do to stand, continue to stand. Do not give up. Do not quit, for in some ways this is the critical factor in your test. It is the test of endurance, the test to remain faithful, the test to continue time and time again. So while there will be new things set before you, and things from old still yet to be accomplished, there will also be obstacles which will be overcome by your consistency and faithfulness. Some mountains will be overcome not by your speed, but by your determination. (1)

I will require you to face them time and time again, and though it will feel you are making no progress, continue to stand. Continue to hold your ground, and when you feel tired and wasted away, draw from me. It is your relationship with me that will sustain you. I will be your source in your times of need. I will be your rock when you need to make a stand. I will be your foundation when you need to build. I will be your life in all things, both good and bad. I will be your breath, your very source of immediate and frequent sustenance and energy. (2)

There is a process of weathering little details away as you continue to stand. There is a refinement of issues within your heart as you continue to stand. It will help to expose, but also remove, issues of doubt within your heart. Doubt is a slippery ground which will keep you unstable and double-minded. So do not resist me as I my desire to bring you to a place of greater stability, and to remove all the double-minded ways from within your heart, mind, and character. (3)

In the days of delay and waiting you will be tempted to return to Sodom. You will be tempted to look back, though your deliverance is presently set before your very eyes. There will be options before you on all sides, and you will be tempted to pursue and indulge in them all. In this time the issues of your heart will be confronted. Do not forget this, my Dearly Beloved, for these are the very issues, mindsets, and practices that need to be confronted and removed. (4)

We will identify them, and do so together. We will confront them, and do so together. We will remove them, and do so together. We will adapt, but also innovate into new directions as the correction spawns new options, and new potential. I will work with you gradually and consistently, but also very gently, though it will not always feel gentle to you in the moment. I ask you to make your stand, knowing it is asking much from you. I know your frame, and I know you are weak and are but dust, but through it all the process will have its work, and you will surely produce the desired end result. (5)

These seeds will produce their fruit over time, gradually. Even though it is so gradual you do not always perceive movement or progress, trust and know you are being changed and transformed more and more to show the likeness of my son. Even though you will be surrounded by so much misunderstanding, even from those who love you dearly and are very close to you, remain true to the vision I have set before you, and do not give up. (6)

Know this, my Dearly Beloved, it will be hard. It will not be easy. It will tax you to your very limits. It will require the very most you have within you, but you will also grow through it, and because of it. These struggles are not for nothing. They are all part of the process, and in the end, when you look back, you will see the milestones you have overcome, with sweetness in your heart as you reminisce on satisfaction of our journey together. You will see the transformation within you, and you will be equipped for the new challenges and assignments soon to be set before you, but all of it takes time. (7)

Remember this as you feel impatient and desire to advance now. Remember this as you feel you are behind schedule. Remember this as I continue to work with you, and develop what you will need for tomorrow, because in these present days I am forging endurance within you. I am getting you to a place of faithful endurance so you will be able to sustain and remain. (8)
