This is an updated word I previously released and sense in this season, it will bring encouragement to the body of Christ. In God, there is a REASON for every SEASON. But we know that all is working for the good. Even what the enemy tries to use against us for evil, the Lord will turn it around and use it for our GOOD.
For many the road has been long. You are tired and weary. For some this has been a season in a dry and desert place. Some feel like they are stranded in the wilderness. But I want to share with you that there is fresh oil that will come upon you. There is a time of refreshment and renewal that the Spirit of God will bring to you. He has not left you although your feelings may say so. Even in the valley place fresh springs will arise suddenly and refresh your souls.
Some of God’s greatest warriors are not prepared in ease and comfort but under the tough training of a Loving Commander. What seems to be working against you is in reality paving your way forward. It is in the dryness and in the desert place that we are stretched to go farther than thought possible and are made spiritually stronger than ever before.
My dear brothers and sisters, His abiding presence is still WITH you and soon you will once again experience the richness of His presence and Spirit. Where once barrenness and unfruitfulness seemed to abound the fresh oil of God’s Spirit will flow, bringing life and gladness to your hearts.
“You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions,” Hebrews 1:9.
