Soon you are going to find yourself on the other side of what can only be described as your life’s greatest Wilderness.
A wilderness so intense with trial after trial and battle after battle that you couldn’t imagine that you would make it out.
But I feel this is the word of the Lord over the body of Christ as we come to the end of 2023 “Your wilderness is over”
Pack your bags and get ready to move because God is leading you out!
YOUR ENDLESS LIMBO IS OVER
There has been a specific assignment raging against you in the past 3 years – to keep you in limbo, in waiting, treading water but never getting anywhere.
To keep you fighting, warring, barely surviving, and leaving you constantly depleted and exhausted.
To keep you in dysfunction, chaos, and a never-ending rollercoaster of drama that you can’t seem to leave.
Its purpose has been to prevent you from finding your promised land, your promised people, and the fulfillment of what God spoke over you.
Its purpose has been to stop you from birthing what you have been stewarding in secret for many many years and has been ripe.
Its purpose has been to delay you til you give up, shut down, and forfeit the promise, but something is about to break!
The war has been on your pen, your song, and your creativity.
The war has been on your revelation, your relationship with God, and the secret place where blueprints for breakthroughs are forged.
The war has been on your clarity, your peace of mind, your direction, vision, and movement.
The war has been on the doors that you were meant to open, the paths you were meant to walk on, and the places you were called to occupy.
This morning I heard the Lord say that the CATCH 22 over you is BREAKING!
YOUR PATH IS CLEARING
You have been like a bird in a cage feeling helpless and hopeless, unable to move in any direction.
You have felt like a train running at full speed around the same track over and over getting nowhere.
Right now God is breaking you out of the cycles in this season. You weren’t created to go AROUND the mountain but UP the mountain.
You were created to go higher, from glory to glory, and right now God is unhinging you from the track and the obstacle course the enemy set for you.
The legal roadblocks that have been set against you are being torn up and God is opening the way forward.
He will open a way for you where there seems to be no way, and He is making a clear path for you where you have been out of options.
YOUR WANDERING CHAPTER MUST END
The last three years have been years of wandering in your quest to follow the leading of the Lord.
You have been faithful to go where He has led you, shifting and migrating when He has asked you to.
But instead of stability and surety, your wandering has only led you to deeper unknowns and confusion.
Instead of establishing you only found yourself feeling even more lost and beginning to doubt your ability to hear His voice or your faith in his leading.
It’s felt like a failed mission that cost you everything but has only led you to no man’s land.
But you just haven’t seen the fruit yet. You just can’t see how the pieces and seasons connect just yet.
Nothing was wasted, you didn’t fail, and you are far from lost.
But your wandering, nomadic days are at an end.
Your days of treading water not knowing from day to day where you are going is over.
Your days of feeling shipwrecked and alone are over as you leave this wilderness and God establishes you again.
THE PIONEERS WILL BECOME SETTLERS
And it’s time for the pioneers to shift from wanderers into settlers.
For this three-year season has been like a pilgrimage of new wine discovery and conquest leaving the old behind, but it’s felt like you have been at drifting at sea.
You have left behind all safety and comforts and said yes to plowing new ground even when it looked crazy to you and those around you.
You have been faithful to pioneer before its time and have pushed on when people judged you and cursed you.
You have had to fight the bears and lions of the fear of man and forge new paths when others didn’t understand your heart or your mission.
You pushed on even though many left you for dead in your hardest season.
But pioneers, let me say this over you. You are coming into a settling season where you will begin to form deep foundations, settle, and build what you have been given during this season.
TRANSITION IS LEADING INTO IGNITION
You will finally exit transition and enter a season of ignition.
You will finally break past the thresholds of the past and finalize the emotional and spiritual process that needed to take place in you, and break out of the transition phase into launch.
For this transition has not been a holding pattern but a pullback for a launch.
Like a bowstring being pulled back, this season will be known as your setup for what you never imagined God could do in your life.
You thought it was a perpetual waiting and death to your dreams season but it was simply the pull back before the go.
IT HAS BEEN YOUR DELIVERANCE SEASON
“But what has been the purpose of this wilderness?” many have been asking.
This season has been your preparation, yes, but more than anything it’s been your deliverance.
For you have been tethered to mindsets, lies, and old wine blueprints that were tripping you up and preventing you from seeing what God was leading you into.
It’s been your emptying so you could be filled again with the new and embrace what He was leading you into.
It’s been your deliverance from the wrong people and alignments, the wrong places, and the wrong assignments.
It’s been your deliverance from bondages and strongholds you didn’t know you had.
It’s been your deliverance from generational chains, Jezebel’s muzzle and control, and healing from Saul’s spears and arrows.
It’s been your deliverance from the words of assassination and the snakes in the grass.
All of it has been exposed in this wilderness, and everything that has been holding you back has been shaken.
It’s been a wilderness where you have found your wild again after years of being tamed and your voice again after years of being silenced.
It’s been a time of seeds dying, ambition dying, motives crucified, and every idol in your heart is exposed.
Not to shame you, but to free you.. so you could finally step into the chapter that is coming around the corner.
You had to lose your religion and shift your feet from false foundations back into Christ again.
You have been in a three-year wilderness where God has deconstructed you and rebuilt you again.
Just as Jesus said in Mark 14:58;
“I will destroy this man-made temple, and in three days I will build another that is made without hands.”
God has been tearing down the man-made in your life and has been rebuilding you with the things of the spirit.
YOU AREN’T LEAVING THE SAME
I kept hearing the Lord say “They aren’t leaving the same way they came in”
They aren’t leaving empty-handed but with the spoils of war.
They aren’t leaving without recompense.
They aren’t leaving with the wounds and trauma of the season.
I won’t let them leave burnt out and depleted.
I won’t let them leave feeling tired and battered.
I won’t let them leave broken and empty.
They aren’t leaving confused and in deep bewilderment but in clarity and completion.
I am now giving clear plans and clear steps as they leave.
I am giving sure footing and clear guidance forward.
They won’t be lost anymore, thrown around by the wind.
But instead, I am guiding them on a secure path and giving them a fresh wind!!”
AN ENLARGE SEASON IS UPON YOU
Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
For you will spread out to the right and to the left your descendants will dispossess nations
and settle in their desolate cities. Isaiah 54:2
I heard the lord say “You are entering a stretch forth your tent pegs season”
You are entering an occupying-the-land season. You are entering a “takeback and recover all season”
You are entering a recompense, reconciliation, and restoration season for you’ve been in a season of limbo and delay, restriction, ceilings, and walls all around you.
You’ve been in a time where you’ve had to fight just to maintain the territory and the land that you have. But even then, it feels like what is in your hands has just been falling through your fingers.
It’s been a season of forfeiting. It’s been a season of deep surrender.
It’s been a season of purging. It’s been a season of having to hand over to Jesus what you’ve built for years but is no longer working.
It’s been a time of things not coming together.
It’s been a time of having to deal with broken expectations and hope deferred that has been mounting up on every side.
But I hear the Lord saying that there is a shift in the air and you are about to move from stuck to seizing.
You are about to enter into a season where you will occupy the land that the Lord promised he would give you. “Now says the Lord. I’m going to cause everything that worked against you to suddenly be what works for you”
“I’m laying up the wealth of the wicked for the righteous says the Lord. I’m gonna cause my people to occupy and to own and to take back the territory that has seemed like it’s been lost. That’s right. I will settle you in the home I promised you, says the Lord”
You will own homes that you did not build. You occupy regions and inherit regions that weren’t even on your radars says the Lord I’m giving you not one land but multiple lands. Stretch forth your tent pegs to the left and to the right. Stretch them forth by faith.
I hear the Lord saying this is a fresh slate for my people and it’s time to move into the new season.
Right now I’m resetting families and I am leading them to take back the ground that has been lost for many years, decades, and generations.
YOU ARE ENTERING A “WIDE OPEN SPACES” SEASON
Now watch as your ceiling season breaks away and you enter your season without the limitations you have become used to.
For you have begun to see through a skewed lens but now watch as God breaks all poverty and small mindsets and opens your eyes to a kingdom without measure.
I heard Him say clearly “I am taking them from CONTAINMENT into a season of WIDE OPEN SPACES!”
Yes, this season will be defined not by limitations and delays like this season has been, but by the unlimited and unrestricted power and favor of the Lord.
It will be a season marked by the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
It will be known as a season where God leads his church out of the prison and into powerful purpose and influence in the earth.
It will be a season of dreams fulfilled after seeing them die.
It will be a season of increase despite the chaos of the world.
It will be a season of the spirit of God being poured out upon the church without measure, and the reviving of those who feel like they died.
“Yes, I am leading you out of the wilderness into the wild open spaces!” Says the lord.
“And you will feel fresh strength enter you, and where you lost your fire I am putting a new heart in you, and where you lost your voice, I am giving you a new roar!”
