I am sending you into a wilderness, it is not a punishment, but actually a promotion. You have demonstrated perseverance and exceptional leadership. This is why I can trust you with more and why I have selected you.
I need you to experience a new and uncharted territory, to create a map and blueprint for others to follow. Yes, there will be good days and bad days. Heartaches and headaches will be the normal, but your efforts will provide hope for a countless number of people.
You are a pioneer and nothing before can compare to the circumstances you are now and will soon face. The opinions of others will be bitter sweet, so your counselors will be few. I will need you to rely and depend on ME like never before.
You are birthing something revolutionary. This is travail, many will be excited about what is coming and can celebrate the fact, but the effort in pushing and birthing the baby, will be yours alone. The savior you seek is inside you.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
