A Letter From the Father - When I Lead You Out
When I lead you out, you shall always find deep waters fast ahead. For it is in the deep waters that my love abounds quick. You see, my love is dangerously wild. You will never be able to understand the depths, the tides, the rhythms, or the methods to my movements. So it is with the sea. A vast ocean is unpredictable. Even the most skilled sailors cannot prophecy exactly what is up ahead. So it is with me. Even the most intelligent Bible scholars and well learned religious leaders have a troubled time truly “figuring me out.” But ah dear one, I choose for it to be this way because my love is only understood through faith. Faith in Me, faith in My Son, faith in My Word, faith in My timing.
When I lead you out, restrictions dissolve immediately. Time may have a way of trying to convince you that you are losing precious and valuable resources, but truly I say, you do not serve time my dear one, time forever serves you. I have placed you before a wide stretched plain of possibilities. There is not one set plan with one set procedure followed by one set regulation of time. No, I should say not. For I have only given you one set thing in this life, and that is My Plan. Your Path is subject to change, but my Plan remains the same.
When I lead you out, I will not give you the extravagant details to follow. For if you knew all things ahead, would you need me to lead you? If I were to tell you the who, the what, the when, the where, the why; it would still not be enough because you would soon ask the “how” to it all. You must trust. You must trust when you do not know and you must have faith when you cannot see. I simply ask you to follow. To follow means that there is someone leading, that someone is I, my beloved. I am the perfect Shepherd of your soul. Do you not believe? I have a resume of 66 books found among thousands of Words. Read and believe! Yet read and SPEAK! Faith comes to you by hearing, so proclaim it from the highest peaks! Proclaim it from your lowest valleys! My leadership has never failed, and I will not start this failure process with you.
When I lead you out, keep in mind that it is for your good. When did I utter that Promise that your relationship with me would be “comfortable”? So many times I hear words spoken by religious leaders that being happy and being comfortable is what our relationship is all about. NO! I have not called you to be comfortable, I have called you to be RADICAL! I have not demanded that you be happy, I have proclaimed that you be filled with JOY! Obedience is the method in which I bring about my plans for your life. Always remember that my beloved.
When I lead you out, know that I am proud. It is very important that you know how proud I am of you. This is not measured by your good merits, or your good deeds. I am proud of you because you are strong and you are mine. Yes, I shall say it again to confirm my thoughts towards you. You are strong beloved…your strength has been inherited through the process of your weakness that is in constant need of my strength. I never asked you to be perfect on your own, I have called you to be perfect in my Son Jesus. And so you are. Yet even more so, I am proud of you because you are Mine. You made the choice when I called you forth, and this choice has given you life abundantly. Don’t you see? Haven’t you heard? I HAVE MADE YOU NEW!
When I lead you out, I lead you in love. Never fall into temptation of believing anything but this Truth. For it is in my love that all fear is blown away. Just like the breeze of a fall day blows the leaves from the tired trees, so my love blows away all fear from your weary soul.
Come away with me, beautiful one. For I am leading you out…
