“Yet hear the word of the Lord, O women, and let your ear receive the word of His mouth; teach your daughters wailing, and everyone her neighbor a lamentation. For death has come through our windows, has entered our palaces, to kill off the children — no longer to be outside! And the young men — no longer on the streets!” Jeremiah 9:20-21 (NKJV)
Once in a while, I will get this overwhelming big picture for the God’s heart for children who are being raised with parents who do not regard God in their life.
I tell you, He is weeping over them. He would love to gather them up and take them with Himself, but He lays them on the hearts of the intercessors. He allows us to feel His heart.
I went to a thrift store today, early in the morning, and truly I saw the poor and what poverty had done to them.
It was as though God pulled a veil back and said “This is what Satan does to My Creation!”
I began to weep right their in the store. There was a lady in that store and it was obvious that she was or had been, a drug addict.
She began to talk to me about her son and how he was a basketball player, with offers of scholarships to college to play ball, but that he had given up, and was wasting his life.
In her way she was telling me, while cursing every other word, but I sensed her heart to wish it would be right.
I felt God’s heart to just listen to her and to be kind to her. Nothing religious, just show His heart for her family.
When I walked out, The Spirit grabbed me in the gut and it was as if I wanted to lay down in that parking lot and cry out in travail.
I believe that this is God’s heart for the world, but especially the innocent who are in these families, where generation after generation are repeating the same process!
He is tired of the enemy having his way and hurting the next generation coming up.
I am telling you, that He is calling for the wailing women!
It is time to fall prostrate on our faces and cry out to God to stop this flood of evil and the evil strongholds must come down.
Mindsets must change!
it is not time to complain about it all. It is time to cry out to God!
When You feel this burden, stop what you are doing and cry out all of you who pray! He is waiting on you, oh sons of God!
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
“Consider and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for skillful wailing women, that they may come.
Let them make haste and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run with tears, and our eyelids gush with water.
For a voice of wailing is heard from Zion: ‘How we are plundered! We are greatly ashamed, because we have forsaken the land, because we have been cast out of our dwellings,’”” Jeremiah 9:17-19.
