My child, the pain you are feeling originates in the growth that is taking place within you. You are stepping beyond what has been comfortable for you into the unknown with Me. I am stretching you for greater capacity and authority in the spiritual realm. I am bringing things to light that have been hidden within you that must be dealt with so that you can move forward from a place of stagnancy to productivity. You must learn to differentiate the pain that comes with My process and the enemy’s attacks. Both are purposeful, but only one leads to life. He would have you wallow, complaining in pain, whereas I bring you into an abundance of life. Therefore, submit to Me and resist the enemy. Where there is pain, joy will come in the morning. Let faith arise and choose to grow in Me.
Is. 54:2-4a, “Enlarge the space for your tent, extend the curtains of your dwelling; do not hold back, lengthen your cords, make your tent pegs firm. For you will spread out to the right and the left, your descendants will possess the nations and inhabit the desolated cities. Don’t be afraid, for you won’t be ashamed; don’t be discouraged, for you won’t be disgraced.”
Ps. 40:3-5, “He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will look on in awe and put their trust in ADONAI. How blessed the man who trusts in ADONAI and does not look to the arrogant or to those who rely on things that are false. How much you have done, ADONAI my God! Your wonders and your thoughts toward us – none can compare with you! I would proclaim them, I would speak about them; but there’s too much to tell!”
Ps. 30:5b, “Tears may linger for the night, but with dawn comes cries of joy.”
James 4:7, “Therefore, submit to God. Moreover, take a stand against the Adversary, and he will flee from you.” CJB
