In the days ahead I will be bringing many of you to a place of prominence. This position of prominence will show the preparation you have already gone through and will display the goodness of my timing and processes I have taken you through. Surely the time of preparation is valuable, even though many times you have had doubt along the way. The end will be so glorious, for you will progress day after day, as you continue to walk and grow from one season to the next. (1)
Not only is your experience valuable to you but it is also valuable to the generations after you. Those who are younger than you will need people with experience and skills, wisdom and knowledge, and perspective and history in order to achieve all they can be. So know in your times of preparation, some of it is for you, and some of it is for others. Some of it is for generations yet to come, so you will be equipped to help them, to pour in to them, and to further the plans and works of the kingdom.
In this world there are many in need of depth of wisdom and history. There is great demand for people who have said yes to me and have said yes to my plans. It is my desire to fulfill this demand, and to raise up wise, skilled shepherds, brothers, mothers, and sisters so all can get what they need in the right time. (2)
Know in the dark times I am working a greater plan within you that is greater and bigger than only a single person. What I am working in you is much bigger than only you because it also touches generations yet to come. Even though you live for today, see for today, and think for today, my plans are much larger than only for today. Trust in my plans and in my timing, and know I will continue to work things on your behalf to truly and completely bring about the fulfillment of my purposes and plans in you and through you, even for generations of people yet to come.
I know the choices made in secret. I have seen even the smallest of little changes in your heart towards me, and surely I will reward you. For even though big things matter, so do little things too. I see the little things. I see the little details, and I know the struggle and stress even over the little things too, just as I do the big things. Surely I will reward the faithful. Surely I will not allow their sacrifice, hardship, and difficulty go unrewarded. Those who have said yes to me, and those who have surrendered to me, will taste of the fullness and satisfaction yet to be fully revealed, and is surely unable to be fully measured or comprehended.
