I believe God is not leading pioneers to their next assignment as much as He is leading them to their people. This is on His heart for you and your family right now which is why the greatest war in this season has been on family peace, unity, and synergy in relationships. Many pioneers around the world are feeling this strange desire to “nest” which is to be settled, find their dwelling place, or as Webster’s dictionary describes it; a gathering place, or a place or environment that fosters rapid growth or development.
The tension right now for pioneers is that they feel both the longing to settle as well as the desire to launch. It feels confusing but God is doing both. I keep seeing prophetic home-bases lighting up all over the map where Lone Ranger ministries and people can come and put their bags down. He is leading you to a place you can put down roots while also giving you a vision for stepping out in the days ahead.
The eagle’s nest will be your long overdue REST.
Right now many are looking for their place of establishing, their place of settling, and their place of acceptance because the road has been long and hearts are tired. Many are depleted and are needing to get fresh oil.
Pioneers have been pouring out into others for so long and they are needing a people who can pour into them for a season. Like Moses, it’s time to have your arms held up and allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to let others help you in your mandate. In an eagle’s nest, the warfare the pioneers have endured will no longer be as consuming or effective to take them out. In an eagle’s nest, all sides are protected and the eagles can go out and soar without restraint.
Pioneers, the battle of the mind has been severe but in the eagle’s nest, there will be a canopy of glory that cannot be breached by the demonic and a realm of breakthrough that will prevent any chatter from entering.
Right now pioneers are in
to their eagle’s nest! God has paid for the tickets and has organized all the moving pieces. Your role is to simply move with Him. God is clearing through the red tape that has been preventing you from being established. He is closing doors in places you have been trying to settle out of haste. He won’t let you plant your roots down anywhere except for your promised land and with your covenant people. Your days with turkeys are done and your days of being sideswiped by competitive relationships and cliques are over. The usurping ones, the jealous ones, and the unequally yoked ones do not have a part in your future.
So pioneers, wherever you are in your journey just know this is God’s heart for you. Don’t settle for second best right now, don’t bow out or give up but press through and find your eagle’s nest
—your family is waiting!
“But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
