. . . Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians:6 NKJV
My child, I will finish what I have started. No matter how many times you turn away, I will draw you back – for I ALWAYS, ALWAYS get the glory! Defeat does not bring Me glory; therefore, I have planned for you VICTORY! Victory, My child, is coming!
It took the Israelites 40 years to reach the Promise land. I didn’t use the orignal group, but I did get the glory and the victory! I will also get the victory and the glory in your life. Which group do you want in; the group that missed the victory or the group that received the victory? Go back and read Joshua, see how I brought the victory. Also read about how the Israelites of Joshua responded to what they saw? You, My child, are responding to what you see. How many times have I told you, “Don’t look at what you see, instead look at Me” ?
My child, your eyes are not looking at your source. Your eyes have only been looking at the difficulties and the problems. That was the same mistake of the first group of Israelites and they did not get to their Promise land. This is also why you experienced defeat, for you were not looking for the victory, but you were only perceiving defeat everywhere you looked.
My child, know ye not yet that I AM THE VICTORY! If you keep your eyes on Me, you will see the victory. YOU WILL SEE THE VICTORY!
My child . .. come here to Me, rest yourself in My hands, and surrender all of yourself and your desires to Me. For I have plans for you, plans for a hope and a future, plans to prosper and not to harm you. (see Jeremiah 29:11)
Come to Me, My child, “call on Me and I will listen to you” (Jeremiah 29:12), you will find peace in the midst of all these difficulties. I will give you the strength required for each task. I will give you serenity and a calm spirit, instead of the worrying and anxiety that you now have. I will encourage you with hope, instead of depression. If you only look at what you see, you will conclude that all is lost, but I tell you, My child, ALL IS NOT LOST! Nothing is over, until I decide that it is finished.
My child, the “good work” that I start, I DO FINISH! Trust Me, My child! And yes, I do keep ALL My promises! You can count on it!
. . .God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19
My child, I KEEP MY WORD! I keep My promises! Look at My Word, My promises, and keep them in your heart and your mind. Focus on My words for they are truth to your body and your soul.
