You go into a church that you use to labor in and you feel like an outsider…
This is God sometimes allowing it so that you will move forward.. You are the kind of person who loves and is loyal and does not give up on things easily.. Well if God wants to move you, He sometimes allows drastic things to blast you out of the old and thrust you into the new.. “It is going to be alright” the Lord says. “I will cause you to love the people that I am sending you to and they will love you also.”
It feels like you have lost all, but the Lord says:
“You must forget all, even the good things that you have done. For I am doing a whole new thing in your life now! I know you feel out of place and like you are in unfamiliar territory, but here is where you will learn a new aspect of the calling that I have on your life. Do not count it as loss but as gain… Even when those around you think that you have been demoted.. It is I who am actually promoting you. I have done this work and I will connect you again with those that will cause you to grow for you have outgrown the place that you were and I see more capacity in you!! Step up into this new place.. Rest in my leading and you will see a greater weight of my Glory coming forth in the near future!!”
