I will lead you one step at a time toward the place I want you to be, says the LORD. Encourage yourself in Me, for I have kept you in the past and will keep you now. Do not try to force things to happen, for I will give you the resources to fulfill every purpose that I have for you under the sun. LOOK TO ME, and trust in My perfect will for you. It is always higher than yours and always good, says the LORD.
At the times when things do not come together as you desire, or when you want them to happen, KNOW that I Am in control of your times and seasons and destiny, says the LORD. You will know that when it is My will, I will furnish you for every good work that I have assigned you to do, as I have prepared you. When it is a closed door, do not try to force it open. I will open doors for you and close others. BE ALERT and receive what I DO, for I will not lead you astray or withhold anything good from you, says the LORD.
