“In this time of Sounding the Alarm and calling the warrior bride to prepare to march on the cities, stand on the wall, and carry out My Word,” says The LORD to His Family.
“I AM REACHING OUT to you to take you to a place that is beyond YOUR REACH!
You have been stretched beyond what you see as your limit, but I say this time has been a Boot Camp experience that has taken you further than you wanted to go, kept you longer than you wanted to stay, and has produced in you a hunger that you never had — a hunger that will reach out to those who are starving for truth, a love hunger, that can only be satisfied by The LOVE of a Father.
My Remnant has been in a time of preparation to ENDURE to the end. The OUT-REACH I AM preparing, the REACH OUT to all the world is coming very soon, and I AM calling on you to a divine appointment that will change the world as you know it.
I AM extending an invitation to you, “Let’s do lunch!” It is time to enlarge your vision according to My Word,” says The LORD.
“Let’s set a plan in motion to carry out My Word. Just as I have prepared a table before you in the presence of your enemies, I have anointed your head with oil, and your cup runneth over,” says The LORD.
“Your cup shall surely overflow with My Goodness and Mercy as your new directions shall provide you an opportunity to REACH OUT and feed the multitudes just as it was in Matthew 14:15-20
I AM multiplying the bread and fishes. I AM reaching out to you in a big way to go in a new direction and feed the multitudes just as I have fed you.
Many of you have come through a season of great trials, much change, and feel like you are hanging out in mid-air and can’t seem to get grounded.
I say now that your heart is unencumbered!
Now that your heart is free, I AM giving you courage to follow your heart,” exhorts The LORD, the One and Only One Who sees the whole heart.
“I AM stirring you up to follow your passion and be ready for a season of suddenlies that will create a whole new vision.
Get ready for acceleration that you asked for, sudden open doors, many opportunities, and new connections!”
Beloved, be lifted up with expectant hearts as He is connecting the dots. The canvas of your life picture is beginning to look like a rainbow, reflecting the sign of a new beginning.
You will glance back at how the difficult times and questions in your heart are falling into place and you will begin to understand “to everything there is a reason and to everything there is a season.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1ff)
The deep stirring in your heart, when every hope and desire seemed beyond your REACH, is flashing before your eyes like a neon sign, beckoning you. Even in the midst of all the chaos and the aftermath of many struggles, the Truth of Purpose and Plan is beginning to bring peace that passes all understanding.
Dear ones, that flash of understanding and that peace that suddenly filled your heart is the announcement from your heavenly Father, is positioning you to fulfill your purpose.
I once heard Pastor Steven Furtick preach on STRETCH MARKS and I was reminded of my first pregnancy. Boy, was I being stretched to carry a child that was 23 inches long and 8.5 lbs.
I was a perfect size 7 back then. I woke up one morning to huge stretch marks and a big belly, all of a SUDDEN. And I tell you this to say…. a big change had come and a bigger change was soon arriving.
It was indeed a challenging moment, but it was good change. It for sure was a new day!
I am saying that with each new day, we experience many ‘stretch marks,’ but the good news is, He alone enlarges the vision.
His Thoughts, Dreams, and Purposes are higher, bigger and more than we can think or even imagine.
Follow the Dream in your heart and as you follow Him, He will enlarge your heart to be a carrier of His Heart!
So, I hear The Father encourage you to take a deep breath and STRETCH a little more! REACH OUT and take His Hand that is REACHING out to you.
He is REACHING out FOR you and saying, “We are entering the last STRETCH and almost there.”
Suddenly I am hearing the words of an old old song “Where Peaceful Waters Flow” that goes like this:
“Come and walk with me
We can go where peaceful waters flow
If loneliness surrounds you
And rain clouds always hang around you
And wakin’ up each day gets you down
Gets you down, gets you down…..
And if you let me
Ill guide you, mmm
Ill always be there, right there beside you
REACHING every step of your way……”
Beloved, I believe there are so many who would have been REACHING for their heart’s desire, taking a step in a different direction, if they really believed that… He will take you there, never leave you, be right there and reach out to you every step of the way.
Won’t you REACH out and take hold of that promise?
HE is REACHING out for you. Jesus is the author of OUTREACH and is patiently waiting for us to just REACH OUT.
Your sudden turnaround is waiting for you to LET GO of the lie you believed, let go of the so called comfort zone you have created and REACH for the high calling in Christ that Paul mentions in Philippians 3:13-14,
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
There is no safer place to be than in HIS HANDS.
The only freedom, the only liberty is where the Spirit of The LORD is.
As you REACH for Him, He will send you to REACH out to those who are perishing.
The hour is late and there is no more time to be tossed to and fro, vacillating in indecision that leads to unbelief.
HE took Joseph from Prison to the Palace. He took Simon Peter from Reed to Rock, and He is finishing what HE started with you.
Dream HIS Dream and your dream will be too big for you without HIM. You have been fashioned to fit the dream HE has purposed for you.
Will you trust HIM?
Are you willing to let it ALL go, and take us your cross and go and FOLLOW HIM in Total Surrender?
There is nothing to compare with being HIS love slave.
A TRUE LOVE STORY never ends and it always has a happy ending!
There will always be seasons of great trials and transition as we must experience change to move forward.
This is not a time to give in to the feelings of hanging in mid-air, or barely hanging on. It is time to get grounded and receive an established heart free from every encumbrance.
