This morning, I was in my prayer corner and my mind kept drifting to things I’ve done in my past. I was thinking – if only I knew then what I know now. It was regret and sadness for stupid things I’ve said and done.

But the Holy Spirit gently reminded me that I am different now – I am a new person. That is not who I am today, and He also reminded me that the things I did in my past helped form the person I am now.

I needed that reminder. So, I shook off those thoughts and began to praise and worship my Lord and Savior. He is worthy of being praised because He set me free!

As I was worshipping, I was taken in the spirit, and I was standing right in the middle of darkness and light.

The darkness was behind me, and light was in front of me.

I stood there for a moment – processing what I was seeing and feeling.

I knew the darkness WAS my past, and I know the light IS my future.

I didn’t feel anything bad when I looked at the darkness because Jesus has healed the pain and regret of my past. And it’s only occasionally that I think about the old me, and it’s no longer with condemnation. Now, I celebrate how far I’ve come! Thank You, Jesus!

When I looked at the light that was in front of me – I felt joy, excitement, love, and peace. I knew all of these things were in that light – so I stepped forward.

As soon as I took my first step, Jesus was there. He looped his arm with mine, and we skipped together into the light.

So many wonderful emotions exploded within me. It felt wonderful! Laughter came up from within me. I had a huge smile on my face because I felt so much joy!

There were other people there – all of them rejoicing because they too had stepped into the light. I also saw angels all around us celebrating and rejoicing!

I was in awe of this, and Jesus knew I had questions bubbling up within me.

He said, “So many of My children have suffered at the hands of the enemy. So many have been in the wilderness – trying to find their way out. All they need to do is keep seeking Me, and as you do this day by day, you will get closer and closer to Me.

When you walk from the darkness and into My light, you are stepping into a New Era. This is where I am calling ALL of My children.

Some find it hard because change can be difficult – but if they will just trust and have faith in Me, I will guide them through it – and they will never regret their choice of choosing Me.

Pray for the ones struggling. I welcome them to come – yet they fight against it!

This New Era will be unlike any that My children have experienced before. All the lies will be made known. You will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you FREE!

Stepping into the New Era means you are leaving your past behind. Your past is a part of you, but it does not define who you are now.

Once you accept Me, you are a new creation – and you are free to finally step into what I have created you to be.

Stepping into the New Era means you will have to leave your old mindset behind – for I am doing a new thing.”

Isaiah 43:19 – “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

“I am even now preparing you for it!

When Elisha received Elijah’s mantle, he stepped into something new – something he had never done before. He struggled with this new thing for a short while. He had to get adjusted to what he stepped into. But I was with Him, and he eventually stepped fully into it. (Elisha’s story can be found in 2nd Kings.)

You will do the same.

As you walk with Me in this New Era, I will be with you. I will help you adjust to the New Thing I am calling you to.

There is nothing I won’t do for you as you continue to seek Me intimately.

Many have already stepped into the New Era, and they are finding their way – so if you are holding back, I encourage you to come! Step into it with Me. I will never leave or forsake you. I will guide you, hold you, teach you, and love you with every step you take.

Leave your past behind. Get rid of your old mindset. Step into the New Era that I have called you to. You are welcome here. You are loved far more than you know.

Step into the best days of your life where the old has gone and the new has come.

Everything the enemy has been doing to destroy you, My children, will be revealed – and when this days comes – EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE!

Step into what I have called you to do with boldness and courage. Step with your head held high for no weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

I am with you, and you are well protected when you stay close to Me.

I invite you to step into this New Era with Me and watch as My blessings pour over you.

Continue to seek Me in all that you do, and I will guide your steps.

As you step into My light, I will be there to dance with you, laugh with you, and rejoice with you!

My children – you are so precious to Me!

I love you with an everlasting love.

Come – bring your questions to Me. I am here…waiting.”

Wow. This was one of those encounters where I didn’t want to leave His presence. The way they celebrate in Heaven is different than how we celebrate here. There is only love, peace, and joy. It is amazing! I was overjoyed with what I experienced, and I treasure it deeply.

It encourages me to keep going – to keep praying – to have faith no matter what I see here in the natural.

I know God has big and mighty plans that will soon be made known to all of us here on earth. Waiting is hard. The fight is difficult. We are exhausted. BUT God is moving. He is making a way where there seems to be no way.

He will pour out His blessings on those who have fought alongside Him. He will restore what the locusts have eaten (Joel 2:25).

There is no detail He has left out as He prepares us to step into this New Era. Our eyes and our hearts will be opened to so many NEW THINGS when ALL of it is finally revealed to us.

I encourage you not to wait! Seek Him! Make a list of questions you have for the Lord – then go and sit with Him and ask Him the things that have been weighing on your heart.

Step into the New Era where He is waiting to shower you with His love, peace, and joy! Your blessings await!

In His love,
