Remnant… I have seen you wrestle this process the mess of this season. I have seen you fall on your knees a thousand times and want to give up on the hard road you have walked.
I have seen you die a hundred deaths in the fires of adversity and persecution. I have seen you enter the cocoon of the Lords refinery and emerge with new wings. New at first and feeling unsure and still remembering the pain of the past season but carrying new wings none the less. Do you feel them yet? No? You soon will.
You have been in the deepest metamorphosis of your life so far – prepared for a divine purpose that is about to be revealed. And all around you are others who have been prepared for this very same thing.
Now let me address the ones who felt like they died in this past season. Yes you! I see you. The lord has NOT forgotten you!
I saw you with nothing left yet still hanging onto the threads of Jesus’ garment. I know you have faced countless nights enduring the tormenting voice of the enemy screaming at you to give up and retreat, and you wanted to, but you knew the cost. You knew what was at stake. So you stood. Against all odds, you stood.
Remnant, I know the process you have been through. I know it felt final. I know it meant closure on many things that you didn’t understand. I know the door slammed shut and it caught you by surprise.
Those people you wanted to come with you into the cocoon by they just weren’t ready to come. They just weren’t at that place and you can’t beat yourself up over it anymore. In fact if you continued with them you would have been unequally yoked and sent you further into bondage.
I saw the COST of this season has been more than all your life’s warfare combined. I know you faced endless locusts and plagues and even felt abandoned by God. “Job, you said. I feel like job! But Lord you restored job so many times over! Will you do the same for me?” And I hear 2 Samuel 22:25 “Therefore the Lord has recompensed me according to my righteousness,According to my cleanness before His eyes”. There will be a RECOMPENSE!
I feel like those who have been long term lone rangers – God is speaking to you the most right now. Your paradigm is changing quickly. You left those people because they bullied and shut you down. They rejected you and alienated you and tried to prevent you from your calling. I get it. The Lone Ranger life is safer and less drama but the loneliness has become a wounding to you in this past year. Like a deep stabbing sorrow in your heart that you can’t seem to escape.
Let me tell you the very crux of this word and why I am delivering it to you right now.. YOUR LONELY ISOLATION DAYS ARE OVER BECAUSE I SEE YOUR TRIBE RUNNING TO YOU!
Moses needed people to hold up his arms in battle and you need that too in this next season. Alone you fell on your face too many times but this next season remnant you will have people holding you up and carrying you over the finish line!
Remnant, your tribe is coming and it will be MAGNETIC.. they won’t despise you, they will be drawn to you! They won’t compete with you, they will pour into you! Remnant find your people, open that space, prepare that table, and let’s RUN together!
