I awoke with a strong sense that many are finding themselves on a long and winding road, but it is a path that you never expected to end up on.
The place that you find yourself in currently, feels way out of your comfort zone as the stretching has felt intense and so unexpected. It has felt like great opposition coming against you and as if one obstacle after the next, is blocking your path and preventing you from moving forward.
The Holy Spirit then whispered these words: My people are encountering a stretching that is leading them into greater expansion.
I feel to encourage those of you who are struggling, that God has got you in the midst of what you are walking through and He will not allow your foot to slip. The trials that you are currently facing, though stretching, are also coming to pull things out of you because it is during fiery trials that we discover things about ourselves that we did not know were there whether good or bad. These moments often cause us to grow in ways we never thought possible and step into new territory, leading to greater levels of expansion.
Do not quit, keep stepping and stay the course.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anythingJames 1: 2-4
