I received this word specifically for the mountain of arts and entertainment. However, I really believe it will also encourage many on the other mountains of influence,..
“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.” – Isaiah 43:1-2
As I have stood on this mountain this week, I have felt an overwhelming burden of heaviness. The Lord began to show me that there are many climbing this mountain that feel as though they are drowning in the tasks that are before them…the assignments that God has given them as they move forward. There are others who are experiencing the fires of trials and tribulations they could not possibly have seen coming against them. But, this is what the Lord is reminding us…..and speaking to those on the Mountain of Arts and Entertainment:
Do not be afraid! All those things…those circumstances that are overwhelming you….I’m passing through them with you! Those difficult situations that seem to be “heating” up every part of your life….I’m the fourth man in the fires and I’m using these situations to purify you (and your families, your ministries…etc) to prepare you for greatness! Be encouraged! I Am with You and I Am carrying you through this. Trust Me and do not lean on your own understanding. My Glory sometimes comes in the smoky vapors that come forth from tabernacles (temples) where I Am welcomed. My Glory comes like smoke to fill the ready vessels who willingly ask Me to purify them. Fire produces smoke….fiery trials that purify unto holiness produce the smoke of My glory to flood the temples of My People.
Children, He is with you in the flood waters! He is with you in the fires!
