For The Forerunners, The Wild Ones, The Relentless Ones
It is time warriors!
🦅 This one is for the Forerunners, the Wild ones, the Relentless ones 🔥:
To those of you who have been called
To those of you who are His warriors
To those of you who have suffered because of His Name
To those of you who have laid down every fleshly desire, so you could have more of Him
To those of you who heard and accepted the call
To those of you who have been slandered as being too wild, too hard to control, too loud, too outspoken, too direct
To those of you who have been betrayed and not supported by church leaders, members of family and friends
To those of you who have lost everything because of His Name
To those of you who have not been accepted, been looked down upon, and been shut down in churches
To those of you who have been muzzled and not allowed to speak
To those of you who praise Him day and night
To those of you who have been ridiculed and told it can’t be God’s work in your life because it doesn’t look a certain way
To those of you who have suffered, sacrificed and fought for so many behind closed doors where no one sees
He sees, He knows, He hears, He is yours, He is your reward, you are His chosen one, you are His wild one.
You are not supposed to fit the bill. You are not supposed to sound and look like the rest. You are not meant to speak or act like them. You are chosen as a forerunner. You go where no one dares to go. You sacrifice what others aren’t willing to sacrifice.
It is time to rise up! It is time to shake it off!
Even when they don’t understand, He does. You are meant to stand out and not meant to fit in. Continue to do things God’s way, no matter how crazy, no matter how dry it looks, no matter what it feels like. God has you building and doing differently for a reason. This is a new era, times have changed, everything has changed. The bride needs you to pave the new way. One day they will see and understand, but right now, you are to follow in obedience no matter what. You are not alone. There are many with the same call. You will recognize them by their fruit, their sacrifice, their love and dedication to Him, and by their radical faith.
You have faced challenge after challenge, battel after battle, warfare not just your own but the warfare of others too. You are an overcomer. This is what you were created to do, to fight, to overcome, to conquer, to build the new. Stand up tall, shake off the shame and opinions of others, shake off the battle weariness. Rise in His strength.
You have to push forward. The enemy is gaining ground. God called you because you are stronger, who fight off armies for others. If you keep laying down, who is going to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves?
Praise, dance, worship, celebrate – the battle is already won!
Let Him heal your heart again. Surrender the betrayals and offenses again. He has given you a place to speak. So speak! Speak what He gives you with confidence in His power and leading.
Push! Push! Push!
The world needs to see the sons and daughters of God rise up. So rise up warriors! Rise up and take territory for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Stand up! Stand up now! You have the authority in Christ. You are His kings and queens. You have His heart. He told you this.
Isaiah 60:1-2(NIV) – “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
Isaiah 6:8 (NIV) – Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Matthew 5:3-12 (NIV) –
“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Be blessed 😊
