We are living in a time when darkness seems to be prevailing around the world, but God still has a plan for your life. You have been created in His image and He will never break His Covenant with you. He is raising up a remnant who will be leaders to the lost and strength to the weary.
The Lord says, I have designed you not only to survive, but to thrive in the environment in which you have been created. You have been strategically placed where you are, and have been uniquely designed for My specific plan for your life. You have been born for this time and season in which you are living. It is no accident that you were born on a particular year, created with a distinct height, weight and gender. Even your personality has been en-grafted into My master plan for your life. Just as I have equipped and called the prophets of old to do great works, I am also equipping you for great exploits in the days ahead. You have been chosen to have visitations with the King of Kings. You have been created to have encounters in the kingdom of heaven. Take your focus off your natural situations, and focus on what I am bringing you into. Do not say that these times are too difficult to survive, because I have created you to be a survivor. Release your old ways of thinking and the mindsets that have kept you from advancing.
Do not fear what lies ahead because you have been created in My image. Do not allow the enemy to divert your attention off your purpose and My plan for your life. You are a threat to the enemy, not by who you are, but by what you carry. I have placed My anointing on the inside of you in which there is no competition with the kingdom of darkness. Do not see yourself as a grasshopper because I have called you to be a giant slayer. As you allow My word to have preeminence in your life, you will be able to sustain the anointing which I have entrusted to you. As you abide in Me, and allow My word to abide in you, you will not have any regrets of your past but you will recognize the lessons learned. When you understand that you have been born for such a time as this, times of refreshing will come to you in abundance. I will visit those of you who are willing to become a sign and a wonder to the world, because I have strategically designed you with a purpose, plan and a destiny says the Lord.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
