The Lord says, “You cannot make someone else fit into your box or live by your expectations concerning their future. It does not matter if you firmly believe you are right or within your boundaries to make such demands. Do not dampen where My Spirit is leading a person. What you dreamed for that person may not be in any form the truth of where I desire them to be. You must release people to go where My Voice and Hand lead them even when they are unsure if I Am behind their steps.
I Am the One who wrote their days out before My Throne. I know exactly how to get them where they need to be even when they misstep. Even if they will not fully follow today, Let Me Have My Way! There is nothing that I cannot use for My Glory. Their ups and downs are for Me to have the final say over. I will turn coal into diamonds. Release the notion of having control and allow Me to take the reins.”
