I speak to those who have been in the valley of trouble, the valley of weeping; it has seemed that the monotony of this place would never end. You have nearly lost hope of ever coming through and of things changing. You expected breakthrough by now, and your expectations have not been met. My Word is true, you must remain faithful and refuse the temptation to fall into oppression. The enemy desires to steal your strength and your ability to move ahead. He is trying to snuff out the flame of desire for Me and bring you down to the depths of hopelessness and defeat.
Look up, My child. There is an end to this struggle. I am your door of hope. Look up. Seek to find your place in Me, and do not be weary in well-doing, for you will reap in due season if you do not faint. Refuse to give in to discouragement and weakness. Don’t allow discouragement to get a stronghold in your life, for it will paralyze you and keep you from moving ahead in My purposes. Shake yourself loose from the deception that has crept into your thinking.
Rise up I say, and stand on the truth of My word. I have given you power to trample over all the works of the enemy, and today is the day to break every curse and assignment the devil has sent against you. You are not a victim of his schemes and plans. You are victorious over every weapon he has formed against you. Cast off your worries and fears, and come in confidence, for I will touch you and cause you strengthen you so you can be victorious in the midst of this storm.
