The Father is saying, “It was not easy for you. You were expecting something great and what did you receive? Little. You thought you were going to have a deeper relationship with Me, but in the end, you could not keep going. You thought you were going to see your breakthrough, but instead, you saw a setback. There were times when you cried out to Me, but in your heart, there was silence. What you heard was an echo of your heartbeats.
Your life was like trying to go uphill, but something happened in the middle that you had to back up and start over again. Am I upset because of your setbacks? You think that I am. Who told you that?
How do I look at your life? I am like a mountain training instructor. Would any instructor give up on his students if they could not achieve the first attempt of climbing to the top of the mountain? If there was one, who would continue being under their supervision? I am the greatest Supervisor. I am your greatest Instructor.
If your first attempt was just a half a mile, that’s fine. I take all of My students to a small hill first, then to a smaller mountain until they are capable of reaching higher mountains. I am not taking you to beat the air with no fruitfulness. My idea was and is that you will be fruitful and multiply. And if there is no fruitfulness, I know how I can help you to be the one.
I have not taken you on “how to get there quick” mountain journey, running to the top aimlessly. That’s the life experience. You must be patient with yourself.
Do you remember Jacob? I did not bring the ladder down because of his perfection. The world would describe him as a deceiver, not trustworthy. But that’s not what I saw in him. He was My anointed and He trusted Me. Because of His trust in Me, I brought the ladder down from heaven. To reach Me, I will bring the ladder, resting on the earth with its top reaching to heaven, into your life too. One day you thought you would never reach the top, and another day you would see angels ascending and descending and invitation opened to go up and see what I have in store for you there.
Do not look back! Do not think your life was wasted. I know how to speed things up and how to get you to the top of My mountain, to a place you’ve been searching for so long.”
“Jacob found a stone to rest his head against and lay down to sleep. As he slept, he dreamed of a stairway that reached from the earth up to heaven. And he saw the angels of God going up and down the stairway.
At the top of the stairway stood the Lord, and he said, “I am the Lord, the God of your grandfather Abraham, and the God of your father, Isaac. The ground you are lying on belongs to you. I am giving it to you and your descendants. Your descendants will be as numerous as the dust of the earth! They will spread out in all directions—to the west and the east, to the north and the south. And all the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. 15 What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.” – Genesis 28:11-15 (NLT)
Shalom & Blessings!
