I am building you, not for flash or for grandeur but to be sustainable. In MY presence, you are fortified and can withstand any attack from the enemy. Your breath is MY breath and MY breath is life, an ever-producing force.
Whatever the outcomes, the trauma, the hurt and the subsequent pain are tools imbedded in your soul, that are useful in building you, that you are useful in building MY kingdom. Both the heights and depths of the pains are useful.
Guard your heart, guard your mind and gird your loins. Gird your loins and stop releasing your energy into the atmosphere, without a return. Your words must do the same, do not argue over the frivolous, only speak life.
It is time to forgive, repent and overcome the past, you have work to do. The pity party is over. The parts of life that have led to alienation and the parts that have led to affirmation are equally productive, for your confirmation.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
