The Higher Places

     You even think to yourself at such a time as this, “Would God do such a mighty thing as change My circumstances or change me?” Now is the day of your deliverance for I remove the heavy cloak of despair from you. How long I have desired to move upon you. I always desire to pour out, but you do not always desire to be still and let Me.

     I remove the blockade, I crush it in sunder for I desire to bring you through. How long you have dwelt on the other side when I desired to bring you into the city and give you the land. The walls have been erected high and you have marched around and around crying out to Me. My love, I topple the walls they can no longer stand, even with great effort, for their plans I bring to naught.

Oh, on the path of My higher purposes, higher in elevation I bring you for you have dwelt in the land of refining fires but now the smoke clears and your eyes no longer burn but see clearly. I give you a path that elevates you to a higher plane, but the walk up will not feel as though you go uphill, for I even quicken your steps to traverse as a deer on solid footing confidently taking in the adventure of the rocky crags. I give you nimbleness to climb with all strength, confidence, and quickness to the high places.

     In your own strength and in the natural you would look at this and say, “I am unable to attain to such a lofty place.” But Oh, My love, this is what I’ve made you for, this is what I’ve equipped you for, and in My strength you can leap up and go higher and higher. There are green pastures at the heights to feed and refresh even there.

     How needful at this time for your elevation, what timing for your transcendence to this new place of dwelling. Behold the old has gone and the new has come, for it is I who make this so. What was held back before and could not be breached, surely I have breached and broken asunder.

     How pleased I am to bring forth and show you how I work even in the unseen. My love, you have felt My heart on this matter for long seasons, even in the changing times of your life, but I show you what bringing forth looks like. I show you what entering into the land feels like even as Joshua and Caleb entered the land after dwelling in the dessert for such a long time. I renewed their youth and strength and I even do so for you to accomplish all your tasks and continue to dwell in the land and topple the strongholds.

Psalm 18:30-36

“As for God, his way is perfect: the Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.”

II Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!”
