Is. 49:11 “I will turn all my mountains into roads and my highways will be raised up.”
Redemption is My word for you for 2021. My redemption draws near. You have been through the pangs of birth for many whom I will redeem. Your testimony, My story in your life will save many who have lost their compass.
I have truly made you a covenant for My people and how have I done it? Your lives are an illustration of My promise for others. When they see the result of their trials turning into blessings they will rejoice. The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. (Is. 51:14) This has always been My plan to use your difficulties on your journey to give strength and resolve to overcome the enemy and pave the way for others.
For I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of My wrath, you will never drink again. I will put it into the hands of the tormentors, who said to you, ‘Fall prostrate that we may walk over you, and you made your back like the ground.’ (Is. 51:22-23) Yes, I allowed the cup that made you stagger so that you could become strong, stand and thrive against your enemies of shame, poverty, fear, and rejection because I never intended you for man’s approval but for My approval. Now you can give proof that you did not lack bread as you went through this process of being set free. For My arm is not too short to save and My refining fire draws near for others now. I want to see all the dross come to the surface to be cast off in this hour-for I am a redemptive God and want to regather you to My shelter but you need to be cleansed and repentant.
I want to be your guide and rule and govern your lives so fall on Me, Your rock, and derive strength and dependence from Me. Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God and in due time I will raise you up. (I Peter 5:6) You are not able to accomplish this yourselves. I am rebuilding you in My image as you surrender all striving. So persevere in following my directions and you will see what I produce in you! For I have made you upright men and women and you will be My plumb line for others to look up to and measure their growth and standards to live by.
Redemptive suffering is always redeemed for another, for those coming in your path. You are making a highway for travel, for hope, for joy, removing the obstacles to freedom-
“And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” (Is. 51:11)
