A letter of encouragement to those who have been selected, like Moses.
Like Moses, your life was a miracle, from the very beginning. You were chosen and anointed by the hand of Adoni. You came from a broken childhood, so many battles you have faced. Mountains and hills of climbing, never getting a break. From your mother’s womb, you were cast into the hands of God. You were a gift to Him.
Like Moses, the Lord has taken you on a journey that hasn’t made sense. He has given you many trials and testings, to prepare you for the richness of what He has ahead. Just when you finally get comfortable, He pulls you beyond your comfort zone again. Often times you wonder, “why? can’t this journey finally end?”. Considering the Lord’s plans, brought weariness instead of rest. You could never understand why such a long journey had to be done. And even knowing that God has been with you, every step of the way, from the brokenness of suffering, trusting God has been a steep battle to face.
But your Father God is saying,
“You are a leader, who is powerful and good. Unlike many others, you have integrity and a clean heart, soft in hearing my voice. The convictions of your heart are greater than anything money or status could do. From the very beginning, I have chosen you.
You will be a deliverer, to lead out many. A forerunner, who lights up torches, and leaves them along the way. Others will follow you with the light that you leave behind. You are like Moses because I drew you out of many waters.
From the dry heat of the desert testing, I will bring you to the pools of refreshing waters. You will behold my majesty and encounter my presence with fire. The many trials that you have faced, was not to punish you or cause you pain. Rather, it was the stretching of your faith, as you learned the intentionality of my love. With each problem that you faced, you grew so much taller. Strength was formed on you as if I chiseled it on a rock.
You had to learn to trust me, as trust is often earned. Through each step of your journey, I was showing you a deliberate and faithful love. I AM the Father who keeps you safe at night. I want you to know that I will always protect you and that I am mindful of all of your ways. There is no detail in your life that I do not know and my timing will never be too late.
The place where you have suffered the most is the place that I will abundantly bless. When troubles come and your heart is burdened, just wait for me and rest. I will raise you up to walk above the atmosphere and I will hold you in my love. I am so much bigger than you can even comprehend. Learn to rest in my hand and there you will abide in the Vine of Christ.
Rest is the weapon that ends all things negative, bring your burdens to me. Just trust me and know that you are safe in my plans. In returning and rest you will be saved. Quietness and confidence will be your strength. Turn every thought into a positive and know that I am good. Rest is about what you believe. In resting you will have confidence that I will turn every situation into good. There will never be a time that you are not blessed and deeply loved.
This journey builds your courage in who I am as your Dad. Sometimes I will have you take a long way so that we can grow together as one. When your feet get weary, I lift you in my arms and carry you to the end. I want you to know me as a friend. With every step that we go on your journey, I have an opportunity to show you, my relentless love. It’s a journey of relationship and I am determined to show you the very nature of my heart.
Soon you will leave this desert and take off like a jet plane. Be truly glad, there is a wonderful joy ahead. Even when you had to suffer for a little while, I am always faithful to the end. What looks like a terrible mess in your situations, will be turned around to reveal the amazing beauty that I have designed.
Trust me for your needs, there is a reason for everything. To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. In your eyes, you see a journey of testing. In my eyes, I see you coming into the depths of my heart. Lay back and rest, let go of every worry. In the resting position, you will begin hearing the beating of my heart. Rest in the intentionality of my purposes and plans. Rest in my goodness and love. Enjoy the journey of experiencing my power in your life. I am making all things NEW, rest in confidence in who I AM for you, as my beloved child.”
