Year is September 4-5th), and this is what He spoke to me for us. There may be more, but this is what I got so far.
My people must set their faces as flint to look forward and not backward if they are to reach the rewards I have for them in this time. There is no more time for looking at what lies behind you, My precious children.
Some of you are walking through times of great sadness, so you wish for the happiness of the past, when what lies before you is an even greater reward if you do not miss it.
Focus. Focus is the key to victory this year, My children. If you will only focus, I will take you further in this new year than you ever dreamed of going. I desire to reward you for your faithfulness and your giving, for I have recorded every instance, every sacrifice you have made and are making, and I have a reward for you for each instance! The answers to many prayers lie just ahead for those who have obeyed My voice.
NOTE: I saw in my spirit that many had sacrificed for Him by moving, by giving up jobs or relationships, by obeying – He has noted everything you have done! You feel overlooked but He says you are not.
Do not disregard the smaller things, My people, for I take account of every one and what sometimes seems small to you is a very big thing in My eyes and you are rewarded according to what I see.
March forward with determination to reach your destinies in Me, for I shall astound you with My mighty power to transform your life into one of joy and wonder.
Focus on Me, on My work; On My Word, My gospel. Acknowledge Me in all your ways and I shall direct your paths to where I want you to be. Be willing, be obedient, be listening.
I love you, My children! And soon we shall be together for all eternity and all the sorrows of your earthly life will be behind you forever.
