There is life and glory after the death of a thing in your life. When you give up things that mean so much to you, things that have taken My place, you will grieve. Because setting aside falsehood feels like death. But I have called you to take up your cross and follow Me. I promise you life after death.  After you have surrendered and mourned your loss you will begin to experience My power at work bringing forth newness and hope. I want you to set aside your mistrust of Me and believe Me. The things you can hold in your hands are lies that will harm you. They can’t satisfy you. Only I can satisfy you, for you were made for Me. I don’t have plans to harm you. I have plans to give you a hope and a future.  ~Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

I have fought for you. I have won. I sense your worry and see you fretting. These things prevent peace from filling you. Remember that I have won. I want you to change your perspective from worry to a thankful heart. Speak to your mind, tell it to think on whatever is true, honorable, whatever is just, pure and lovely.  Train your mind, speak to it, command it to listen and hear My word. Practice this. Practice this until it becomes part of you and I will be with you. If you grumble and complain you will remain in the place of grumbling and complaining, but when you become thankful it opens the door for so much more. To those who have, more will be given, and they will have abundance; but to those who don’t have, even what they have will be taken from them.

Matthew 13:12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.

While you are looking for safe and secure and familiar there is a country waiting to be explored. I have an exciting future for you! I am looking for warrior spirits who will say “Give me life! Give me life abundantly!” Those who will follow Me with all their heart mind and strength! Who won’t settle for anything less than My ways for their lives. Those who will believe Me for the Promised Land and be willing to leave their comforts and their own desires to find true life; to suffer awhile in order to attain a resurrected life! I want those courageous enough to walk through a wilderness and face their fears, to a Promised City whose foundations are gold. I am asking of you today to forget the former things and not dwell on the past, for I am doing a new thing. As long as you are dwelling on the past, you will remain there. The one who loves his life, loses it, but the one who hates his life in this world will keep it for life eternal. Be strong and very courageous and I will strengthen your heart.
