Only the Penitent Man Will Pass
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, only the penitent man will pass. The enemy has laid his snare of contention before you and is assured in his thinking that you will undoubtedly take the bait. Don’t give in
to fear and don’t give in to the pressure. Pour out your soul before Me, for I AM close at hand. I AM near to all those who approach My Throne with humility and contrition. When you take on the cloak of humility the enemy cannot find
you or predict what you will do next.
Your soul’s enemy does not understand humility and cannot counterfeit humility because he doesn’t have any and never did. Humility is your
secret weapon. Humility is the one spiritual weapon in your arsenal that the enemy has absolutely no defense against. When you move in humility, you will walk through the walls of impediment that would otherwise hold you captive.
Above all things, today, embrace humility as your first response in every situation; you will come forth like fine gold every time. The mind rejects this for the mind is puffed up with knowledge and only knows strife and adamant objection to not
getting its way. The natural mind and the flesh will accept nothing other than the attitudes and emotional tirades that ultimately destroy your hope. Refuse to give in. That is the man of sin seeking to subvert your way before Me.
I say to you, allow the hidden man of the heart, shaped in My image to have the ascendancy in your struggle today. If you want something different, you must do something different. It begins by pulling
down the strongholds of pride and contention and walking in meekness, temperance, and humility before Me. In so doing, the enemy will grope for you and not find you, for you have evaded out of his snare and walked on into total and complete victory.
