My dear children, remember that not all people will listen to what you say, and individuals will
disagree with you on important things, just as they disagreed with my Son on the earth. Many will not want to ‘draw near to God’. I see you desperate for others to grow, and you hold onto them emotionally, trying to move them forwards. You are being held back! This strain is not my way. I want to catapult you forwards! You are not their master or lord: they are responsible to me, and I who began a good work in them will complete it. Let them go into my perfect hands.
Think of the first two people who come to mind when reading this. Hand these individuals to God and consciously free them from your expectations of them. Pray the Lord’s prayer over them and ask for God’s peace for both you and them. Now, be catapulted to where God wants you.

Philippians 1:6 NIV UK ‘Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’
