To those trying to make sense of where they are headed because the path looks so different than what they expected it would be.
To those trying to determine whether to settle or to hold onto the promise God gave them.
To those trying to make sense of the new and unexpected landscape before them.
To those who feel like they are back at square one after years of pioneering and plowing ground.
This is not a step back – this is a new level.
The enemy wants you to feel like you failed and that you have accomplished nothing.
He wants you to feel like you missed it, messed up, and are being punished for it.
He wants you to feel abandoned and cast aside.
He wants you to give up, abandon ship, and create an Ishmael.
Recently I had a conversation with the Lord where He spoke into this moment many are facing.
“Listen to what I have to say those who feel like Jacob. Those who feel like nomads, wanderers, and failures. You have not failed. You have not missed My voice in this season.”
“I know you feel like all your wandering and pioneering has taken you nowhere. Your feet still like they are treading water and you have not seen the promise I gave you.”
“I know you feel let down and tricked like Jacob did by Laban. It feels like you have worked and given your all for the wrong outcome.”
“You feel blindsided and cheated from the ending you feel like this journey was meant to have while you see others experiencing their promise all around you.”
“You have felt like you have gone around in circles over and over and repeated the same fruitless cycles with nothing to show for it.”
“Like Jacob you have felt hunted down and pursued by family, fellow brothers and sisters, constantly on the run from people who have been after you to rob and discredit you.”
“Right now I am redeeming you, vindicating you, holding your arms up, and clearing the road before you.”
