Mountains are lowering and valleys are rising so that you may pass through on level ground even now! God’s people have been overcoming the training ground of what has been like a great obstacle course. All of those remaining strongholds of your soul that have hindered you in the past have been being revealed as you trained on this course. As you have been allowing them to be removed and refined your soul has been being restored and your mind has been being renewed.
Every time that you have allowed this process to refine you, it has caused the lowering of the mountains before you and the raising of the steep valleys that you have been encountering. It has been in the mercy of God’s love that He has put you on this obstacle course in order to see the renewing of your mind and revealing of every stronghold and hindrance in your soul.
Here is the key to your final stage of this obstacle course: His Word! Now is the time to drench and immerse your mind and thoughts in His Word of Truth.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
God is transforming us through the washing of His Word and through truth. There is a great shift happening and part of that shift is that His Church is being rightly aligned through a transformation process. We are becoming aligned with truth so that our souls and spirits are not in conflict and at odds with each other.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
This process is making you ready to walk on level ground without straying or being double-minded. Now is the time to pray His Word, declare His Word and be transformed by His Word.
