As the Lord draws us closer to leaving on the first trip, He continues to pour His words of encouragement and blessing into us. We spend much time each day seeking Him and reading His Word. To be on a journey as we are takes all of our energies just to stay focused on the Lord and what He desires us to do. We want to be ready when He says to leave. Our hearts, our minds, our every movement are in tune with His Spirit. We have read over the years stories of people led by the Lord into feats of faith and we see His hand upon us for that very purpose. May you receive encouragement today for your journey of faith!

I have much for you to do tomorrow. Begin your day with Me, listen to Me. I will use you to bless and encourage many. Thank you for listening and obeying Me. I love you. I have much for you to do. You are gaining strength in patience. You are close to receiving all I have for you. Rejoice, the time to leave is upon you. Keep your eyes open and your heart open. Your faith is a testimony of My grace. Wisdom and understanding are yours as you seek Me. I receive your praise and I place My hand on both of you for the anointing of Pastor/Teacher. This office you will use in your work with pastors and those I send you to. I am going to show you more in the days to come for you to study in preparation for the first trip. I am with you every step you take. Keep writing as I tell you and keep praising as I show you. The joy and peace that you are experiencing is My blessing for your obedience. Rest in it. You will rest in it as you travel, love, share and encourage people. You will experience more joy than you ever thought possible. You are full to overflowing. Spill it out on all I send to you. I am your constant supply. I will give specific instructions soon concerning the house. I have a buyer and the timing will be Mine. Begin practicing on your instruments. I have songs for you to write and worship for you to do. I am unfolding more of My plan for you. Soon, very soon, it will be time to proceed with the non-profit status. Continue to assemble your board. Remember, your adversary is going to try to delay My plan but he can’t. It is all in motion and will happen in My time.
Psalm 31:14-15 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say; “You are my God.” My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.
Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage; and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.
You are doing well in your walk. You are hearing My voice and being obedient. When you come upon an obstacle or an attack of the enemy, you are seeking Me and rebuking him. This is the walk of faith that I have designed for you. Continue to walk this walk as I give you direction. You know by what I have told you that the motor home is coming soon and the finances are to come soon. Keep seeking Me and my direction for each step and I will show you what comes next. The house is almost ready. There are a few more things to do and then the buyer will come. I will tell you how to find the buyer. I will give you complete and total peace as you walk this walk and talk to others about what I am doing. You are doing well, My children, to hear Me and do as I say. Your excitement and your readiness to leave are pleasant to Me. I love you both and I am caring for you. You will have all that I have promised. Keep talking to each other as you have. Stay so open that nothing will be between you or be hid from each of you. Your children are being drawn to Me by your faith. They are being drawn to each other by your faith. You are walking in love and seek to walk in love even more than you are now. This is a part of what you are teaching others. You are an example of what a faith walk really is and your testimony of today is more powerful than you will ever know. Many are watching you and seeing a life they do not know. They are perplexed and troubled but drawn to you because of that perplexity. You are doing very well. I know it is not easy to leave your home and to go not knowing all I have for you but trust Me and know that I will take care of you. Every day I will provide and I will give you all you need or show you what to do to obtain all that you need. You are My precious children and I am pleased that you are seeking Me as you are and I will give you total and complete direction for each step of the way. Watch out for deception by the enemy and always ask Me for any confirmation of what you believe I have said. You are very soon going to be traveling to see David and Martha and others so that they will know of your love and care. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end so follow Me and I will lead you where I want you to go. All that you have planned to take will fit in the motor home I have for you. Continue to set aside all that I show you to take and be prepared to go as never before. You will travel before Thanksgiving as I have said and you will be on the road right up to the reunion. Many will be drawn to Me as you travel because of the testimony of My provision and call on your life. The joy will be so overflowing and infectious that others will seek Me as never before and yearn to know Me as you do and listen for My voice. I am excited with you for these days ahead. Just rest in Me and I will be to you all that you need. Your faith has made you whole. Both of you. Peace and rest are yours each day as you seek Me and walk with Me and love Me and obey Me. This is My word of comfort to you this day. I am your Lord. You are My children. We walk together and you will be a blessing to many.
