WORD FOR THE TRUE REMNANT OF THE LORD ⚔🔥
For the true remnant of the Lord; for those who have been through the storm; for those who have felt shaken to the core in this last year, and even in this last season -
The Lord would say to you in this time:
"I am stabilizing you in the season ahead. The enemy has come and attempted to throw you off balance, to unstabilize you, but I have sustained you, and I AM bringing a stabilizing to those things around you that have felt chaotic and crazy. The enemy has sent storm after storm to destabilize you in this past season, and at times you felt that your stance was shaky and you were not able to stand firm with assurance...but in his onslaught, he failed to realize that I AM your firm foundation, and I AM The Rock on which you stand, and I will not be moved! He has sent the rain, the floods, the winds...and although you felt blown about at times, although you felt as if you might lose your footing, you closed your eyes tight and held tight to Me!
You cried out to Me, and I gave you the strength and fortitude to stand, even when it felt as if the ground beneath your feet was shaking. You have wondered at times, why I would allow your ship to go through such a storm, why I would not quiet the storm around you, but that was not My plan. There are times I speak to the storm, and there are times I require you to speak to the storm...and then there are times that I simply give you the strength to ride out the storm. There are times I give you the strength to brace yourself against the storm that is raging around you, and stand firm! I have built your faith in this last season...your faith to stand as the chaos and confusion swirls around you, and to know that as long as I AM in the boat with you, it cannot go down! I have been teaching you not to trust those things around you that can fail, but to trust in Your God that cannot fail. I have been teaching you to trust, that even if the ship goes down, you serve a God that walks on water...and even as My servant Peter was able to walk on the water as long as He kept his focus on Me, so you will be able to, as long as you keep your gaze locked on Me. Then you will not be capsized by the wind and waves that fiercely try to pull you under! I am the firm Foundation, and I am stabilizing you in Me in this new season!
Yet even this last season has been a test in your ability to stand while eveything attempted to bring you down. The enemy has been hard at work to keep you from seeing yourself in this new time that you have now stepped into. He has fought hard to make it seem as if nothing has changed, as if everything will remain the same, and there is no reason to have hope and expectation of the change that is at hand. I say, do not listen to his lies, do not fall victim to his deception. I say, everything has changed!
For I say, you have not just entered into a new season, but you have entered into a new era...and although many things may seem the same, and it may seem as if not much has changed around you, I tell you that I am working behind the scenes for you in more ways than you know! I AM setting many things up that even the enemy has not anticipated. It will look the same, and then everything will change. There will be suddenlies and more suddenlies in your life in this year, even in the next 2 years...that will blow you away!
My remnant, you have fought well, you have stood well, you have believed well, you have endured well. I have called you by name, and you are Mine! Stand and know that I AM with you, I AM stabalizing you, and I AM calling you forth into this new era, to be all I have called you to be in Me!"
"I will bring the one –third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ”
"For the seed shall be prosperous, the vine shall give its fruit, the ground shall give her increase, And the heavens shall give their dew— I will cause the remnant of this people To possess all these." ~Zechariah 8:12
