May you trust and rely on the Lord alone to fulfill His promises, worshiping where He has placed you and obeying what He has commanded you, withholding your hand from grasping what God has said is yours, and not seeking or rewarding the arm of man who would act, or the wisdom of man who would scheme, to achieve the goal you desire. 2 Samuel 4

John 14

Walk by My Spirit, My child, lest you carry out the desire of the flesh and grieve the Holy Spirit of God by Whom you have been sealed for the day of redemption.
Walk with the angel of My presence, My afflicted one, for with Him you will find My love and My mercy, and He will lift and carry you to the fulfillment of My redemption.
Accept the ministration of the Helper Whom My Father has sent in My Name, My searching one, for He will teach you all things and bring to remembrance all that I say to you. Thereby you will have the assurance that you abide in Me, and I in you, for the Spirit has been given as an indication of how earnest I am in keeping My promise to you.
Follow the directions and guidance of the Spirit, My dedicated one, for He leads you where the Father has designated for you to go. Though at times He will lead you into sorrow and repentance, difficulty and challenge, fasting and weeping, mourning and fearful reverence, I will always be there to strengthen you and bring peace to your heart. He prompts you to seek God before destruction arrives, whether on a personal level or a grander scale, for there is work that must be done before darkness falls, when no man can work.
Know, My willing one, that those who go forth weeping, sowing good seed with tears will return in the light of day with shouts of joy bearing the sheaves of the harvest.
