Parts of this word was given to me in 2017 and part of it now.
I see The LORD guiding us through a process to break off our tendency to hold on to the familiar and resist changes that we didn’t initiate or plan for.
Have you experienced dissipation… when things disappear or dissolve or seem to have just vanished into oblivion?
Does it sometimes seem like your resources are limited or almost gone?
Have you faced many disruptions of your plans or perhaps times of great consternation when your well-planned course didn’t work?
The LORD is surely beginning to preempt our self made plans to get us in the right place at the right time and produce the right results.
Has there been a dissolution of relationships… some that you thought would be there forever are gone.
Does it seem like a sudden removal has come and taken people out of your life and just as suddenly some new relationships have popped up? Some of the forever friends will come and go…their heart is forever bonded to yours and that bond is sealed.
Sometimes when this happens, I keep seeing a revolving door in the season we are currently in. It appears that some who were in our life at one time have returned for a more permanent time.
It is almost as if they had to leave and connect and grow in understanding and you had to depart in order to accomplish what the original connection was intended for.
The LORD is putting powerful duos together to bring forth a spirit of excellence in the Kingdom in His timing.
When unanticipated meltdowns in any relationship causes great pain and abandonment, there are unanswered questions that seem to settle in your heart.
It is time to stop and remember that our times are in HIS hands and on occasion HE sends certain people into our lives for a short season or perhaps even a brief encounter.
Some of our connections and relationships are for a season, some for a reason… an appointed time, some come and go and some last a lifetime. But they all serve a purpose in facilitating the purpose and plan of The LORD.
As I have asked The LORD for discernment to be able to differentiate between what is intended to be provision and what is meant to be permanent, it has helped me to hold things loosely in my hands and heart with an attitude of gratitude coupled with a complete trust in HIM alone.
It seems that many are experiencing roadblocks where that direction or road is closed, brooks drying up, that provision is gone and finances have dissolved, familiar people and friends have moved away or you have no more connection but new people, places and things have popped up suddenly like a quick blast from the past..
Many are even being taken back to places they have been before but never thought they would be going to live there again… much unfinished business will bear much fruit for the Kingdom that will remain.
Does all of this ring a bell with anyone?
One powerful truth I found in HIS word is Proverbs 21:1 and it has helped me settle some things in my heart when a very special or key connection that I valued greatly dissolved for no apparent reason…this is always a very perplexing situation.
It says simply this:
“The LORD is turning the hearts of men in the direction He desires and is in fact making it easier for you to let go and make moves forward into your next assignment.”
So do not take the matter personally or become bitter with people as though they are rejecting you… let the door close easily. Allow no bitterness to find a place in your heart by which many are defiled.
When God leads us out of a place of familiarity and the way forward is blocked, He holds the key — He dissolves and resolves — He opens and shuts — He interrupts and disrupts to destruct and reconstruct — HIS ways are not our ways..so take no thought!
He is ready and setting in motion new directions and making corrections. Only The LORD possesses infinite knowledge and perfect wisdom.
He is eternal, Almighty, and omniscient. He sees the end from the beginning and He will have the last word.
No matter how it may appear on the surface, He is actively involved in the affairs of our lives.
This is not open for negotiation but it is truly an act of Grace. We are learning to trust The LORD with all our heart at all times and lean not to our own understanding.
He is showing me how much of our thinking is clouded with presumption, assumption and our own opinions when we insist on trying to figure it out.
So trust that He is leading us along the best pathway for our lives.
“The LORD says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you,’” Psalm 32:8, NLT.
This is what I have clearly heard for months now, some breakthroughs and break outs are reserved and they are being held as special reservations.
They do have an access door and the access code is SECRET PLACE. That door will only be unlocked through intimate prayer and seeking the heart of the Father.
The door is now wide open for all to step on it. The Father is waiting.
There are new horizons ahead, new provisions in place and divine connections for alignment and refinement as we gladly take on new assignments.
