Understand the pressure you feel is very real, but also understand my grace and my great love for you is also real. Even though you will encounter these difficulties, know I will not tempt you, nor test you, beyond what you are able to bear. When you are tempted I will also provide a way out, so you can stand up under it. I will make a way for you, even though it may look different than what you presumed, or different than you would prefer (1).
Because you are alive and active, know there will be pains along the way. Do not allow these pains to discourage you, suggesting you have made an error of any sort. But know pain is part of the territory, it’s all part of the process. And with this, acknowledge I am working with you in order to allow you to grow, to thrive, and to flourish, so you will be put in charge over much. For those who are faithful in the little, will be put in charge over much, and will also enjoy not only the fruits of intimacy with me, but also the rewards and blessings of their faithfulness and obedience too (2).
I will train you to walk in great faithfulness, so you will not derail yourself along the way, but will be able to remain focused, and remain true to your initial and original inspiration. I will show you what to do, but will also give you the strength to do it. I will give you discernment to hear, but also strength to obey, making the necessary changes, allowing you to move in new directions as I continue to guide and direct you day by day (3).
So walk in faith knowing I am with you, but also guiding, preparing, and strengthening you along the way, step by step. I will help to you endeavor forward. I will help you to endure. I will not only help you start, but will also help you finish. So do not look to your own hands, but look to mine. Do not look to your own strength, but look to mine. Do not look to your own understanding, but look to me and my revelation. For I am pouring all these out to you, consistently and generously, and will continue to do so again and again, as you have need (4).
