My people, be tough enough to take My truth and learn from those prophets and apostles who I have anointed to lead in these different days. Take back the yoke that you set aside rather than nursing personal wounds from the past long after I have healed you. For I have an abundance of ‘thicker skin’ available to you to lay gently on your soul, heart, and mind.
It looks like a balm on some of you, a shield on others, a beauty of radiance on yet more, but in all it brings My resistance to sin, and My determination to see you through your race on earth.
Come to me where you are weak, any unsteady warriors. Build the walls of my kingdom again with your leaders, together, as one.
Activation: Ask the Lord to cover with soothing balm those tender areas of your life where you are fragile. Stay with him as he administers his gentle touch. Then ask him to firm up other parts where you need a defence shield, like a ‘thicker skin,’ before you pick up again the right yoke for you, today.
So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.Nehemiah 4:6 (ESV)
Faithful are the wounds of a friend [who corrects out of love and concern], but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful [because they serve his hidden agenda].Proverbs 27:6 (AMP)
