This moment I am shaping your perception in order to assist you in this present season, but also to prepare you for the responsibilities of your future. You have learned the lessons of your past well. You have heard my voice, and followed my instruction, so continue with this practice today as I refine and continue to perfect your perception of your circumstances and environment of today. In doing so I will address your strengths and your weaknesses. I will emphasize what is good so it can be enhanced, but also what is bad so it can be changed.
Be mindful this day for many of the lessons I will present to you will not be particularly tasteful or appealing to you in the short term. In the long term the worth and value will become evident and you will be grateful for each and every lesson, but in the short term what I present to you will not always seem wise, will not always seem prudent, and will not always seem logical. So embrace the temporary difficulty, along with the temporary confusion and contradictions, in exchange for the permanent growth and reward in the long term. Endure the discomfort of this moment so you will receive the rewards of your obedience as you refine and adjust your perception and capacity for interpretation.
Your tendency is to see and interpret your circumstances, as well as the mindsets you possess and utilize, as simple and superficial. But I am telling you there are layers to all of these things. There are motives, complexities, and multiple factors involved and they are anything but simple. So allow me to bring adjustment and refinement to you as I wash your feet, for you do not need to be bathed from head to toe, but do need to receive and embrace my adjustments. (1)
I will address what needs to be addressed in order to assist you in the here and now, but also to prepare you for the subsequent season, as well as upcoming distant seasons as well. The issues of your heart will be laid bare, so you will know I speak the truth. As a result of this process the obstacles that have hindered, or are presently hindering you, whether known or unknown, will come to surface and we will face them together.
So walk in this assurance, for my love for you is great. Walk in this assurance for I am with you always. Walk in this assurance for I am always guiding and instructing you little by little, day by day. I will never leave you, never forsake you, never forget about you, but will remain with you until end of the age no matter what we face, no matter how long it takes. (2)
