May you be encouraged and strengthened when you consider the victories in your own life which the Lord has already wrought, and go forth to overcome the issues which still rise up and cause you struggles.

My child, let faith calm your fears, even in the deepest struggles and the most intense battles. Know that I have not forsaken you, for I do not change.
The way you have known Me to be in peaceful times and calm situations, so I am, still, when circumstances are overturned and conditions are reversed. Although you are in a different situation, I have not left you, and My grace is ever with you.
If you have made willful choices apart from My leading, I am still ready to receive you back and make a way out for you; if the assignment I have given you has led you here, it is My power that keeps you and My will that proscribes what the enemy can and cannot do to you.
When you consider My servant Paul and remember the persecutions, shipwreck, beatings and imprisonment he endured, you never see him bereft of My love. When you read about My servant Peter, making rash choices, being in trouble with authorities, at times in chains, you never see him out of reach of My hand.
Even the times that I contended with the Temple leaders, with the synagogue leaders, with the town's people, even when I struggled in prayer in the garden against the onslaught of the enemy, you see that I was not abandoned in the grave, but resurrected in glory and am now seated in authority on the right hand of the Father. The very powers that sought to overwhelm Me have been broken and destroyed.
By faith, My precious one, realize that it is not the battle you are in or the struggle that you face which is important, but rather it is in Whom you abide, and it is the faith you have in the promise you have received.
By the discernment of the Father, you will be able to see the victory even when the odds appear to be stacked against you. You will learn more about the creative and unexpected ways that I, your Redeemer and King, will never fail to faithfully keep you, when I bring My will to pass, setting your feet on solid ground.
May you be merciful, just as your Father in heaven is merciful. Luke 6

May you seek good for then you will find goodwill. Proverbs 11:27
