From Fire To Glory
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, You are my refuge, My strength, My God, in You I will trust.
My children, draw close to Me, underneath My wing, for I will keep you safe and secure. I will not let anything harm you, My children....My faithful, beloved children. Why do you fret at the sudden attack of the enemy who has come in as a flood? For he is out to destroy you and your stand in Me, but didn't I say in My Word that what the enemy meant for harm I will turn for your good? Didn't I say that all things work together for your good for you love Me and are called according to My purpose?
So stand strong, My little ones. Be courageous. Stand behind your shield of faith and use your sword of the Spirit. Don't you know that when you come out from behind your shield and look at the circumstances with your natural eye, the enemy immediately gets the upper hand and his fiery darts start to pierce your heart because you are no longer covered?
Keep My word before you at all times. Stand on My promises no matter what you see in the natural. Believe My word and do not doubt My faithfulness to keep My word to you. Stand on My promises and waver not in unbelief.... for I take you through the fire to purge your heart of all that is not of Me.
For I am preparing you for a great move of My Spirit through you. And you must be ready for this move. You must be a clean vessel that My glory can move through, and you also must be strong to be able to hold My glory. For if you are not truly ready, the move of the mighty power through you could destroy you for it will move like dynamite. For I will be doing a quick work and a powerful work through My people, and a mighty harvest will be soon reaped through My people.
So stand still and see the salvation of the Lord upon you. I will do a mighty work of restoration in you and through you, and many signs and wonders will begin to follow My words through you. Be ready, My people, for this is a new day and I am doing a new way. Old things are passed away. Behold all things are made new. You will learn adjustments in the Spirit that you have not had the opportunity to behold before. New moves of My Spirit will come forth. New sounds of glory will be released in you and around you. Yes, a new dimension of authority through worship, warfare and prayer will be released. It all begins with you. Are you ready to go through the fire to let Me prepare you, says your God.
