Are you walking through a difficult time right now? If so, the Lord spoke these words of encouragement to you today:
“I am commanding your greatness and preserving your path.
You have been walking through a difficult season, but I am going before you to prepare a way to the banqueting table of My heart. In this season, you have fought many battles as you walked along the straight and narrow path. But I tell you today that I have seen this pilgrim’s progress–your progress–and I honor you for it.
I am preserving your path, even though the way is dark.
Indeed, this darkness is not unto death, but is rather unto life. For I tell you today that the dawn is breaking; the day is darkest before the dawn, but the dawn is breaking in your life.
I am preserving your path and am rising upon you like the sun.
You do not know what to do or when to do it, but fear not. I am with you always, even to the end of the world. And My glory is rising upon you now; it is pelting your face with light, despite the darkness and difficulty you have been through.
I am singing over you as I bring you out of the valley of the shadow of death.
The valley was only a valley of shadows; death could not reach you there, for I have been with you, just as I always am. I have been protecting you and preserving you, as I always do.
The valley has a purpose, and that purpose is almost finished. You are much more calm now; less worried, less anxious. You have genuinely learned the value of resting in Me–and not only that, but you have genuinely learned the vital importance of trusting Me and remaining calm, no matter what things look like in appearance.
The lessons you have learned in this valley will stabilize you the rest of your life.
You are walking in a new degree of wellness and wholeness, despite the fact that you know you aren’t perfect yet. I am the only One who is perfect, but I am making you like Myself. I am forming the image of Christ in you, and you are submitting to My work and My pleasure.
REST: You Need It

Your humility in this season has been of vital importance, and I want to congratulate you for it.
I would not have been able to accomplish nearly as much in your heart if you had not been humble. But you were humble, and you submitted to Me. I was therefore able to accomplish even more work in your life than you have even realized yet–but you will see it.
I am preserving your path and resurrecting your heart of passion for Me at the same time.
You felt flat and dead, but truly I had anesthetized you as I removed some unstable and sinful things from your heart. I have put you back together now, and you are better than you were before. You are finding your heart for Me roaring back to life, and you will find your heart awakening in new ways over the next few days as well.
I am with you to keep you,” says the Lord. “Your path is preserved before Me, for I am acquainted with all your ways. I know your sitting down and your rising up. I am going before you to prepare a way for all things.
I am in front of you and behind you; your forward guard and your rear guard. I am above you, beneath you, and on all sides of you–and of all that concerns you.
I have made you great, and I will increase your greatness on every side so that My greatness is exalted and glorified.
My passion for My glory is exceeded only by My passion for you. And I will use My great passion for My glory to glorify My own name in you. As I do this, all the world will see that you are royalty; you belong to Me, and I defend My own.
Rest in Me now.
Let Me do what only I can do. I am your Fixer, your Arranger, your Friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Allow Me to restore your life and property. Allow Me to order your steps and protect your path. I tell you that I have preserved it already; your path is secure, for you are hidden in Me and I am in you. And I will not suffer your foot to be moved. Just as I never stumble or slip, neither will you when you are hidden with Christ in Me.
Beloved one, I am your Healer and Restorer. Restoration takes time, for it has many aspects. But just like a fine automobile is worth the time for you to restore, so My fine child is worth all the time in the world to Me to heal and restore.
Rest in My arms. Let My love and peace heal you.
You will find it worth your while to do so, and I will take care of you always.
With greatest love beyond your wildest dreams,
Your Father God.”
