It Hurts and He Understands
There are some Pastors and ministers hurting right now, because there are people who are leaving that you thought would be with you forever, but God has a different idea!
They are now leaving and the hurt is very real! God wants many to know that He understands this kind of loss in your life, because He Loved more than any human ever loved and yet many still walked away.
He is also saying, “Hey! I AM perfect and they still rejected me!”
This is a time that He is going to relieve you of these people, because they were only there for a season! You are having a really hard time letting go because you are one that love’s deeply.
It Is Time to Dry Your Tears
God is both bringing you to a place of loving the people that left from afar, even though they are no longer with you, and knowing that He will bring in those that He wants for this new season into your life.
He said that some have noticed that things are happening in seven year periods. He said that this is the time for a new season to begin!
It is time to dry your tears and dust yourself off because He is beginning to do a new thing in your life!
New people, new ministry, and new gifts! Also there are new resources coming with the new people that He is about to bring! They will have tools that you did not possess for such a time as this.
What Seems Like a Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback!
He wants you to know that He understands the suffering that you have been through, but it is not time to quit because, it looks like you have gone backwards, but this is a period of time that you should know that He is shifting things to bring you into the new.
He said, consider where you are as temporary housing before the real one that He is about to give you for the new season.
Surely what looks to some as demotion, will only result in your promotion and what seem like a setback is only a setup for a comeback!
Fear not, but rejoice because your New Season is about to begin! This is the scripture the Lord spoke to me to give to you!
“Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste, now you will be too small for your people, and those who devour, you will be far away. The children born during your bereavement will yet say in your hearing,‘This place is too small for us;give us more space to live in.’ Then you will say in your heart, ‘Who bore me these? I was bereaved and barren; I was exiled and rejected. Who brought these up, I was left all alone, but these — where have they come from?’” Isaiah 49:19-21 (NIV).
