I am the Good Shepherd. Although My discipline may sometimes seem extreme, the cost of not disciplining you would lead to your destruction. Oftentimes you do not realize the danger that you are in until it is too late. When you are walking in pride and rebellion, you forfeit the authority that I purchased for you.
Therefore, let Me examine your heart motives and bring to light all that is impure. For I do this to prepare you for My glory. If you want to be a carrier and releaser of My glory, you must submit to this process. It will be continual until you look just like Me, for I am returning for a pure and spotless bride, walking in power and authority.
I have provided everything that you need to walk in the fullness of My power and authority through My Blood. It has secured your release from everything that hinders love. Therefore, once again, I implore you to stick close to Me. Do not wander away, for that path leads to heartache, pain and destruction. Stay close to Me where you will be safe from the enemy.
Psalm 23:3-4 New Century Version (NCV)
3 He gives me new strength. He leads me on paths that are right for the good of his name.
4 Even if I walk through a very dark valley, I will not be afraid, because you are with me. Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me.
Psalm 51:7-13 New Century Version (NCV)
7 Take away my sin, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you crushed be happy again.
9 Turn your face from my sins and wipe out all my guilt.
10 Create in me a pure heart, God, and make my spirit right again.
11 Do not send me away from you or take your Holy Spirit away from me.
12 Give me back the joy of your salvation. Keep me strong by giving me a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach your ways to those who do wrong, and sinners will turn back to you.
