I placed many things outside of your control, so that the situations can do a perfect work. What seems like chaos is My Divine Hand. Your means are defined, but I AM an infinite, unlimited power. The fight to regulate what is happening around you is a matter of trust.
As you work to manipulate things in your favor, each movement and each behavior reveal a spiritual immaturity. My word says that iron sharpens iron, this is not a gentle nor a soothing process, it is rough and aggressive. The thing that is shaping you will not feel good.
The time on the lathe and the time spent inside the furnace determine the strength and the durability of the iron you are. Many have the appearance of the genuine article, but will ultimately fail under the pressures of life. Rushing to be, what I have already called you to become is fruitless.
Let MY methods be complete within you. Allow MY systems to be fully established. Trust me, trust the end result and trust the buffering. The iron is known by the quality, the quality is known by the master, the master is known by the process and the process is known by the Father.
But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord; they do not understand his plan, that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh,O daughter of Zion, for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples; and shall devote their gain to the Lord, their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.
