So, you’ve learned to love God above all else, and chose to walk in honor above lesser things. You’ve discerned and forgiven and risen along the way. You’ve receive God’s revelations as His wisdom. You’ve grown and matured. You’ve guarded your heart against evil and set healthy boundaries. You are the repentant and the redeemed. The learned and the obedient. You are the ones who stood their ground for God. You know who you are, because you hearken to your Shepherd’s voice.
Through it all, you’ve learned that God did you a favor. Now you’re rising like beauty from ashes. And because you didn’t settle in bitterness and despair, you are being seated in an outward expression of restoration—a whole new place: The manifestation of your heart’s desire.
It has felt like a long time coming. Pretty much your whole life. But you hung in there. You waited upon The Lord and believed He wouldn’t disappoint you. You took hold of His perfect rope of hope and kept moving toward the vision He gave you—the one you’ve held in your heart.
And now it’s right before you—His promise of fulfillment by our Hope of Glory, God Himself. The only One who can bring it to pass. The only One who can get you there.
Friends, as we move into this season of harvest, we will find that whatever we have allowed to predominate our hearts will manifest. In other words, we will reap what we have sown. And, hopefully, that’s God’s best.
God is repositioning His glory carriers to new places in new roles to reveal Himself mightily. These are His people who live submitted lives unto Him, not the hateful unresolved ones—the self-centered strife-stirrers. No, not the immature self-justified imposers, who live their way in God’s way.
After all, how can God use condemnation to share His love, honor and glory to nations?
These wiser, blessed ones are those who willingly receive God’s perspective and attitude. They are the ones who receive God’s vision and plan for their assignments. The ones who sync with God—spirit, soul and body. They are the ones who walk in His powerful anointing and boldness unafraid, knowing God is with them.
And they see miracles.
The enemy is under their feet. They are his biggest threat as they walk on Holy ground with Jesus. Jesus has given them the land, because they have made Him their greatest dominion of heart in all things.
Is this you?
If so, God has prepared you for some major shifts ahead. He is bringing you into your greatest heart’s desires. He has been all along, only now you will see them manifest.
Holy Spirit will help you live out what He has put in you every step of the way. You will be delightfully set free from old ties, as former things that God once used to develop you fall away. As you live in a greater measure of restoration, some important relationships will be renewed full circle. New wine will flow to you, through you and all around you.
God will add new people who will come alongside you. He will reveal them to you, just as He revealed the ones who couldn’t remain with you. Your burden is light and bright as you experience God’s fullness of joy through His promises fulfilled. He will reveal more specifics to you as you enter in and build with Him.
Holy Spirit is for you and will never leave you. You can trust Him throughout. He will amaze you as you continue to abide with Him and receive His best life. Fruit will abound and joy will resound. Awesome wonder will fill your days, growing your delight in Him.
You will be refreshed as you go to refresh others. Longtime burdens will be things of the past, as you pour out love forward, bringing new life to the downtrodden: Those who have been bound in consequences from living in lies and limitations. You’ll begin to see them physically healed as their soul rises in His truth and light.
Surprises are ahead that will make you leap for joy. You will experience a youthful exuberance and know that your Creator has answered your Psalm 103:5 prayer, which is that He will satisfy “your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”
Because of God’s grace to agree with and walked out His way, you will have a testimony of Isaiah 40:31 TPT, which says that “those who wait for Yahweh’s grace will experience divine strength. They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.”
And for this, you are being rewarded.
So, pray with me if you will…
Thank You for blessing me to be a blessing. Please help me to continue to fearlessly walk with You in Your grace, love and wisdom to fulfill my calling and assignments Your way. I choose to trust You.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
