The Liberation From Your Own Emotions

In this day you will be required to walk by faith, not by sight, and not by emotion. The circumstances of the day will require you to rise to the challenges set before you, and you will most certainly not feel like pursuing them. You will not feel as though it is enjoyable, and at times you will feel as though it is not right. Do not listen to your own heart or emotions, but listen to me. Do not follow your own sentiments, your own thoughts, or your own emotions for they will lead you astray and deceive you. Instead, follow my word, follow my will, follow my vision, and follow the move of my spirit in your life as I guide each of you individually. (1)

I will lead you where you need to go, and bring you to and through everything you need to learn and experience, even though at times it will be unpleasant and would not be something you would choose for yourself. The challenges of the day will strengthen you. They have been given to you in order to advance you past your present realm, past your present state. This will require the cooperation of your heart and mind in receiving what I have for you, for it will not look pleasant from the outside. It will not be tempting nor appealing as you see it from a distance.

Remember my ways are not your ways, just as my thoughts are not your thoughts. So do not waver and do not doubt as I lead you into circumstances that do not seem particularly appealing, especially in the short term. Instead, walk with me in intimate fellowship as I guide you through The Valley of The Shadow of Death, so you will know I am with you. You will know I am guiding you as you walk in the assurance of my heart for you, in spite of the difficulties and unpleasantness on every side. (2)

Doing so will require the walk of faith, looking past what your eyes can see. What is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal, so allow me to shift your focus and emphasis from what is seen and what appears to be logical, to what is unseen and what is eternal. In doing so I will liberate you from conventional thinking. I will liberate you from the culture of the day. I will liberate you from your own emotions that cause you to repeat mistakes again and again, because they guide you to temporary comfort rather than to lasting and eternal truth. (3)

In all this you will come to know me more and more. You will lean on me more and more and will by no means be disappointed. As your mind is freed from the tyranny of these deceptions you will surely enjoy the total liberation, freedom, joy, and peace I have intended for you, now and forever more. (4)
