The End Is Only the Beginning
May 24, 2019
“Remember the old days. For I am God; there is no other. I am God; there are no other gods like Me. From the beginning I declare how things will end; from times long past, I tell what is yet to be, saying: “My intentions will come to pass. I will make things happen as I determine they should…It won’t be long until I make things right. My salvation is getting closer and closer; it won’t be delayed. I am ready to rescue Zion, My chosen place, and display My beauty and splendor to Israel, My chosen people.” Isaiah 46: 9-10, 13 (VOICE)
I wrote this during September of last year in my journal and lately I keep feeling led to also share it here. I pray it speaks confirmation and encouragement to someone today.
“And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time...
…And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.”
T. S. Elliot, “Little Gidding”
I keep getting the sense of people coming full circle through much change, endings and transition in this season. Through the choppy waters of transition many are getting positioned for their new season during these days and I keep hearing God saying to them to “take heart” because much of the changes they are undergoing God is using to position them for favor ahead. There is a rekindling of His Fire and His Children are emerging like full-blooming roses burning with the fire of His Spirit and releasing His Fragrance of Salvation, Deliverance, and Healing everywhere their feet takes a step.
I hear the Father saying,
“My Child, let not your heart grow weary and despair at all that is ending and coming to a close, because just like a seed that comes to the end of itself to sprout out roots and stems, so what looks like the end is only the beginning. You have come full circle—not at the bottom where you started, but at the top, arriving to the same place you started but coming to know and understand the journey, the purpose, and the value of things you have gone through—for the first time. What this means is that, just like Joseph becoming regent over the land where he first became a slave, you are stepping out on an elevated position. The enemies you have faced emotionally, spiritually, circumstantially, and even physically you are about to see no more. There is a crashing down of all walls and a breaking down of old cycles by My Spirit.
"Hear the sound of chains falling down and embrace the new-found freedom and the heightened discernment and wisdom I have poured within you through it all as you step ahead. No matter how the changes look, remember to trust in My Mercy, trust in My Deep Love for you: I am positioning My Children for favor, for growth, for elevation. This is a day, a year, a season of TRUST for you, My Beloved. See open doors and open arms ahead, even as I bring you to a time of healing that brings down barriers within yourself that kept you entrenched in cycles of self-sabotage and stagnation. Yield to the work of My Hand in your heart. The work I am doing in your heart during this time is about to yield a bountiful harvest of Hope for you and the many I have put in your life ahead! Be adaptable, be flexible, be receptive to My Voice!
"I am showing you the firm, secure things I have ordained for you to continue to invest yourself in this new season. Take heart and rejoice! Whatever comes to an end or gets redefined in your life by My Hand will usher a new reign of My Peace in your life. Whatever goes will usher in a new refreshing freedom and joy in your life! No baggage into the new season! Says the Lord. Everything that doesn't fit the criteria for growth that has been exposed as weighing down and holding you back is being cut off or redefined to bring in a fresh new glowing health and growth to the garden of your life. This is a time of clean slates and balance for you in every area of your life: in your emotions, in your relationships, in your situations, in any and every area where you have desperately needed and sought it from Me.
"Don’t let your heart be overwhelmed or be weary, there is a fresh new joy that comes by My Hand with this. Like a master gardener, I am fixing the imbalances in your life. I am bringing you to a place of wholeness where you won’t feel either overdrawn or needy, but be at a place to give and receive on different levels in the wholesome, healthy ways I have designed for you to do. I am bringing My Bride to a place of divine reciprocity where every joint supplies, because that is the place where much fruit is produced! So fear not the pruning, the changes that feel uncomfortable at first, for through all that gets cut back or redefined there will be such divine joy and peace overflowing you as you begin to see the divine picture begin to come into clearer focus!
"I am bringing you a time of productivity and growth and filling you with a heightened sense of discernment to detect stagnation and veer toward the things I have designed for your life to remain in a perpetual state of fruitfulness. You are being positioned for mission, calling, purpose! No more business as usual for you My Child! Business as usual is ending and there is a thrust coming to propel you into the Kingdom building mindset, where even when you don’t understand the bigger purpose you will be drawn to listen and heed My Voice in your life. And, oh, what a joy that will be to you!
"This is a time to be freed more fully into the authenticity of who I made you to be! No more fear, no more fear, no more fear! My Child, do you know that you are the EXACT answer to the prayer of desperation prayed by somebody’s heart? What you have and how I made you to be is EXACTLY what someone else needs. You are the Deborah, the Gideon, the Esther, the David raised up for such a time as this! So, heed not criticism, even the internal ones you tell yourself. This is your time to arise and hear My Voice and do what you see Jesus do.
"Fear not you will not know what road to take, because My Clarity is dawning and the fog is lifting upon your life, even though I might not reveal every step at once. I will download Divine Strategies for supernatural outcomes as you step into the new beginnings I have prepared for you ahead. Take heart and enter your new season of TRUST ahead! Lift up your eyes! Know, that at the end of it all, I am redeeming the time! I am redeeming the seasons! I am redeeming the pain! I am redeeming the brokenness! The stones of past failures are being removed and the closed wells of your forefathers are being dug anew to give way to fountains of living water from the Rock. I am redeeming everything the cankerworm and the locusts stole from you!
"I will give you new strategies and revelation and fill you to the brim with My Wisdom as you step ahead. I will be a lamp unto your feet. I will show you My right timing and reveal the you the seasons to bring you through every river and every mountain ahead. You are about to see the wonders of how the economy of My Kingdom works, so Trust Me My Child! Trust Me! You are coming full circle, not at the bottom where you started, but at the top, knowing the big divine vision of the journey I have set you up in and coming to see in awe the wonders of My Greater Plan for the first time. Open doors and open arms ahead for you! Fear not the end, for every end is only the beginning for you! Brace yourself: My Resurrection Power is about to hit your life with might and power! What you are about to experience ahead is beyond limited human understanding, but watch and see My Wonders as you do in obedience to My Voice: see resources multiplied, fruit being bore in exceeding abundance, and the building blocks and foundations of a durable legacy being built and firmly laid down, not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit!” says the Lord.
