In this season, as well as seasons soon to come, do not be headstrong. Do not be stubborn, nor inflexible in response to the guidance of my spirit, particularly in big and important decisions. For in this day I am setting a new direction before many of you, and it will be such a big adjustment that it will look wrong, and it will be confusing at first. The adjustment I have for you will not move you in a slight deviation from your current direction, but will be an entirely new direction, goal, and purpose altogether. It will be such a radical departure from where you are, that it will look wrong to you at first glance. (1)
So I am saying this to you now, in order to document this in your mind, because your tendency will be to reject the new direction I am initiating with you. The tendency will be to ignore and disregard the truth of what I have for you, rather than adopt it and embrace it. I am going to bless you, but I am also going to move you into a new expression, one you have not understood in your past. So with this in mind, do not be stubborn, stiff-necked, or rigid in response to my guidance, for I’m moving you in a brand new direction, one you have not foreknown or understood.
This is all part of my plan, and always has been. Even though you did not understand this, even though you did not foresee these changes coming, I always did, and I always have. So continue to rest in me, trust in me, and acknowledge your dependency on me, for doing so is not weakness, but true and lasting strength, as well as liberation from the lie of independence. As you embrace this truth you will be truly free from idols of delusion inspiring you to deviate from my perfect will for your life. (2)
I have seen the beginning and have seen the end. I have seen it all, including everything in the middle, and that which you have not yet seen or perceived. Do not look to your own abilities, for they are limited and unreliable. Do not rest on your own strength, for your strength is real, but very, very small. Instead realize you have been joined together with me, so in this you can rest in me, trust in me, and enjoy all I have for you, even if you do not fully understand what is happening from one moment to the next.
