In our walk with the Lord, we may encounter times when those to whom God has sent us to bring light reject it and go their own way. God gives men a season to accept or reject. There will be times of standing and the Lord may even bring us to a place where the burden is lifted from us. The word below applies to such a time.
My tender reed, how precious you are to Me. Your tenderness touches My heart. You lash out at times for you are hurt and injured even in your frame, but even these with My eyes see that you need rest and recovery for the journey has been long and your stand has been through hellfire.
These rejected My plans and people in this place. Leave these and do not look back, just know you did all to stand until I released you. Well done My good and faithful servant. My love, what I have for thee is so far beyond your imagination and so good compared to what you have gone through. You will even say, “Why would God give Me the desires of My heart in this way? This is too good for me. ” My love, that is grace.
Even now you are touched and overwhelmed that I would take such care of you, for you have been treated cruelly. These I will deal with. Rest now and be at peace for I have much to pour into you and soothe. I will reveal even more of Myself to you and you will stand forever changed. Yes, stand, for you will stand again.
Now is a season of recuperation and welcoming My presence, for it will be easy to push into Me. Enjoy Me, let Me fill you, for your life will never be the same. You wondered at times, why is this so hard, for there was much riding on the decisions these made, on your place here, on the use of others I positioned in this place to use to further My kingdom. Willfulness, spite, and deceit was their cloak and they would not cast it off and choose My ways. I will continue to work here, but you I release.
Thank you for being willing to stand and desire to see My will be done on earth as it is in heaven. You bore the importance of this matter as a serious matter to Me. I had to even refine much in you in this place, but even in this I have readied you for your next steps. Thank you for your commitments, yes, I Am changing the season for you here, I am releasing you.
You feel sadness over this not because of wanting to leave, but because your heart wanted to see My will done here more than your own hurt. My love, this kind of commitment I use at a higher level, for I know I can trust you even to lay down your own life for My way, at My voice. My love, what these rejected, I use as your refinement. Not one ounce of energy or thought committed to Me do I waste, but I bring abundance and fruit out of the smallest offering and even the greatest.
I bring you into new pastures fresh and green. I refresh you here. I orchestrate beautifully. Your path and all that I line up will be like a symphony with movements and harmonious chords played in tune and timing. No more out of order. I will restore your youth, I will restore your beauty, for these have been drained of you in this intense fight for righteousness. Come and rest with Me a while until I make your path plain.
- “If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.” Matthew 10:13-15
- Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” Psalm 103:2-5
- “For the Lord takes pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.” Psalm 149:4
