One day, I was in worship when the word of the Lord came to me: “In the next six months, you’re gonna wake up settled in the land that I promised to give you long ago. You will wake up and realize that all the battles that you’ve been through, the fires that you’ve walked through and all the wildernesses that you survived are no longer ahead of you, or around you, but behind you. You’ll breathe deep and see no sign of the pain or trauma that have been following you around for years.
“The hope deferred that has been like poison, sitting in the very recesses of your soul, is already beginning to evaporate from your life, never to be seen of again.”
He Is Establishing You!
“I am establishing you,” says the Lord. “I’m establishing you! I’m establishing you! I’m taking your feet and I’m planting them firmly and deeply. I’m strengthening you and I’m giving you the land that I promised that I would give you. I will move suddenly and quickly to get you to where you need to be, and I will give you rest. Yes, your nomadic days will finally be over.
“Just moments ago, everything that I said that I would give you was out of reach. Just moments ago you were at the door, and it looked like there was nothing on the other side, but now you’ll step through the door and see what I’ve been building for you. You’ll see what I’ve been orchestrating for you that you did not even know I was orchestrating. And you’ll see what I have been building that you had no clue about.
“It’s been a season that has felt like you were falling into despair and into the depths of darkness, but you’ll soon see that I was building you, I was establishing you, I was getting you ready to step into your promised land … I know it looked like you would never reach it, and it looked like you would never get to the other side, but you’ll soon see that I have been leading you through; holding your hand to make sure you do not miss it. You’ll see that I have been freeing your feet from every trap, loosing your hand from the basket and removing every yoke from your shoulders.
“Yes, I’m establishing you! I’m giving you the land that is attached to your new assignment, and you will step into a season of building.
“You’ve had to surrender your plans and old assignment—surrender everything that you’ve been birthing, and everything that you’ve been building. You’ve had to burn the old oxen, remove the old mantle from your shoulders and let everything in your hands drop. But now I’m giving you your assignment that is attached to the land. I’m giving to you now,” says the Lord, “what I have been storing up for you for years.”
He Is Restoring Everything—With Interest
We have been in an Ecclesiastes 3:3 season: “a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build.”
Now the Lord says, “As you begin to see what I have been storing up, that is when you will start to experience the restoration. I will restore every single thing that was lost, every single thing that was broken and every single thing that was torn down in this past season, and it will come back with interest.
“Soon you’ll see your season of the hardest ground become the place of the most fruitful outpouring you’ve ever seen in your whole entire life. Soon you’ll see the place of your greatest trial and your greatest assassination attempt become the very location that I will pour out My Spirit without measure.”
Prepared to Birth a New Movement
“Don’t you see that I have been preparing you? I’ve been preparing you to birth a new movement that wasn’t on your radar. I have been preparing to establish a movement through you that will drive down deep into the earth and shake your nation, and extend from you into the nations of the earth. I’ve been shaking you upside down and inside out, but now get ready to see everything that’s been on the inside of you that I’ve been depositing. Get ready to see the fullness of the mantle upon your life. Get ready to see the fresh oil and anointing that I’ve been depositing in you.
“I’m going to use you to establish families of revival [and] places of My presence. I’ve been looking to and fro, looking intently to find those who would prepare a place for Me to dwell.”
“… ‘Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. Where is the house you will build for Me? Where will My resting place be?'” (Isa. 66:1)
