In the days of great pressure against you, understand your inclination will be to retreat when you should advance. Your inclination will be to stop, or to quit, when you should continue. So do not look to natural circumstances as an indicator of what to do, or how to advance for these things may lead you in the wrong direction at the wrong time. Instead listen to my spirit as I continue to guide you in spite of the difficulty and resistance you are presently experiencing.
For I will not lead you astray, but will guide you into the direction you need to go, and will do so at the right time. So even when you feel like quitting, or you feel as though you cannot continue, rely on me and allow me to guide you in terms of direction and timing, but also rely on me in terms of the strength needed as well. Some of what you will need to learn and acquire is the capacity to hear me when you are surrounded by a cacophony of noise. You will need to be able to divorce your own thoughts and feelings from my voice and will, in order to know what I am saying, and how to respond in the moment.
So do not avoid the days of significant noise, clutter, and pressure. While these days will be distasteful they will provide you with the specific environment you need in order to grow past your present level of experience, as well as refine and strengthen what you already possess. These days will fortify the areas of weakness so they will no longer remain weak, and will improve your hearing and discernment, allowing you to hear but also cooperate with overwhelming obedience as a result.
