Though you already work hard, there is a time coming in which you will be required to work even harder. In these moments and experiences I will be there to help you along the way, to assist you in building new levels of strength, and helping you surpass your previous limits. There is coming a time that will require more of you than ever before. Even though you have been faithful in doing your part, you will be entering into a new season like no other before. I am working to help prepare you because the experiences in this season will require much endurance. This season will not be so brief that you will be able to finish without adequate preparation, for it will be beyond your typical limits of strength of power and endurance. (1)
Many of you have asked “why the delay?”, and “why is this taking so long?”. You are currently in a time of building endurance. The ability to finish is one of the key attributes I am working to develop within you presently. The times ahead will not be well suited for the weak, the faint, nor those who are not experienced or prepared. With this in mind, I am developing not only strength and endurance, but also wisdom within you. I am setting it up for you so you will be able to finish, and not fail. (2)
Understand this context for this season now. Know you are still on course, you are still on track, though you have not completed the tasks you thought you should have completed by this time. Though you feel late, know you are not late, because I am scheduling things to build additional strength of endurance on your behalf. (3)
I am not standing against you. I am not holding you back needlessly. I am not punishing you. I am preparing you.
