The Father says today you are moving forward in a new way. The old wineskin isn’t just inconvenient; it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Align your thinking with the emerging initiatives of My kingdom and foster those dynamics in your daily life. Maintaining the old only results in stagnation and disappointment. You’ve asked yourself, “Do things always have to be this hard?” No beloved, they do not. Only the way of the transgressor is hard. When your life ceases to be “yoke easy and burden light,” then you know you’ve strayed from the path of life. Adjust your heart and your mind. Why? Because things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different, you must do something different. If you spend all your energy trying to prop up what isn’t working anymore – nothing changes. That is not My will. Even though I am the God who NEVER changes, I nonetheless require you to live in a constant state of change – that’s what repentance is all about.
No more complacency. No more giving in to that feeling of helplessness and desperation. You are not helpless because the Helper; the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of you. If you were genuinely incapable, My word would be a lie, and of all men and women, you would be most miserable. You’ve faced exasperation and exclaimed, “If I only knew what to do…” That is the voice of the soul despairing its lack of control in the situation. You DO know what to do, for I am your WISDOM, and I live on the inside of you. Do you want out? Listen to My voice speaking in the silence between your thoughts. Are you ready for a breakthrough? Then go out with joy and be led forth with peace. Joy establishes the direction and peace establishes the timing. Leave distractions behind. Reject the tyranny of the urgent and focus on the important. Step up and step out on that highway I spoke of in My word – that out the wayfaring man though a fool will not err therein. Are you ready? Move forward then, one step at a time.
