Your destiny is straight ahead of you, says the LORD. It is before you, as you move forward into it. It is not behind you. Do not even look back, for you will go in the direction that you focus on. I do not want you to back track. Your history is not what will define you, and it is not your purpose. Even the difficult things that you suffered are not wasted. For they shaped you, stretched you, and refined you in the fiery trials and affliction. They are light affliction compared to the glory to come. You will be clothed in My glory and the light of My presence and glory will give you unspeakable joy, says the LORD.
Troubles and sorrows are not my prescription for you, and you will only pass through them, and come safely and speedily to the other side, says the LORD. I have grace and glory for you. Come ahead, into the light of a new day. For My light will shine upon you, and I will mantle you with My brightness of My glory as you fulfill your kingdom purpose and are filled with My Spirit and My power, says the LORD.
