I am bringing you into places of specific effort and focused expenditure of energy and resources. I am preparing you for your greatest effectiveness in My kingdom and in that which is just ahead of you, for I am doing a great work in your midst, and you must take your assigned positions so that My purposes can be fulfilled. It is vitally important that you be bold enough to take responsibility for the things I have given you to do, but it is also essential that you do not overstep your boundaries in assuming tasks that I have not given you to do. This is a time when you, My people, must move ahead as one unit, shoulder to shoulder, with your eyes fixed on Me and your ears attuned to My command. Distractions will bring dissipation.
