I heard the sound of gates being swung open and could see God's people walking forward out of the gates and onto the path that God has for them. Some took longer to walk through the open gate than others. They had been held inside for a long time, so it took them a little bit to walk out and in. The Lord began to speak to me as I was watching this and He said:
“Many have been held back so long through different circumstances, whether that be fear, insecurity, lack, sickness or some other things, that when I swing the gate open they need to build courage and some even have to have their eyes opened to see the path. I am opening the gates to free you and release you. It is time for you to step on the path I have for you. I am ahead of you and have already prepared the way for you. Trust Me. Every bit of delay is coming off of your destiny NOW! But you have to step through the gate.”
I saw that as we stepped through the gate we were accelerated into our destiny. We had to take the first step. When we did God quickly advanced us forward. So many think that they are waiting on God to do this or that, when in reality He is waiting on us to trust Him and take the first step toward our destiny. He has swung the gate open and He is releasing you. He has pulled delay off, now, step through that gate that has tried to hold you back. We aren't waiting on God; He is ahead of us with the gate open.
“I say to you, go forward. Step into your future. I am releasing you, I am pulling delay off. Now, it is up to you to take that step. I am your Daddy and I can be trusted. I have already gone ahead of you to prepare your path. All your days have already been written down by Me and I am with you. Take your first step into the path I have laid before you. Get ready for more in 2024. This is the beginning of the rest of your life. Here we go into your destiny. You and Me!!,” says the Lord.
Micah 2:13 (NKJV) “The one who breaks open will come up before them: they will break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it; their king will pass before them, with the Lord at their head.”
Psalms 139:16 (NKJV) “Your eyes saw my unformed substance, being yet unformed. And in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NKJV) “And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you, He will be with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you; do not fear or be dismayed.”
“I, the Lord, say to you that those things that have been hindering you will fall off of you and be broken from you as you step through the gate I have opened for you. Stagnation is broken off of you NOW! Complacency is broken off of you NOW! Despondency is leaving you NOW! Sickness is leaving you NOW! Fear has to go NOW!!! As you step, trusting Me, we will advance together down the path that I have for you. Let’s go!!!”
