“The thing I’d of settled for, you’ve blown so far away. What you brought me to I thought I could not reach,” Rich Mullins.
This statement above gave me more perspective on my future when I was in the wilderness experience, than anything I know and it was all in a song.
God wants you musicians, psalmists, singers, and song writers to know that you are not just writing songs for him, but that you are changing men and women’s lives and giving them hope to hang on! Your songs will give them something to focus on and sing, and as they do, the joy of the lord will give them strength for the battle!
I have seen the discouragement
“So write the songs that I give you! I have seen the discouragement that the enemy has tried to discourage you with and the times you have thought and even said, “What is the use!” What does it matter!” But, I AM telling you tonight through My servant that your songs from heaven matter and it is only the enemy that has suppressed you!”
The days of discouragement are finished
But I say to you, “Do not be discouraged, neither be dismayed because your days of oppression are behind you!
The days of Saul suppressing My Judah are over! The days of, discouragement are finished and I will take you my Davids and use you to bring the presence back into My land and all those who like Michael, who snubbed the king, as he danced before Me with all of his might, will become barren and fruitless in My Kingdom!
Arise My sons and daughters of Judah, for your days of your true purpose are at hand, and you will lead My people through and into the battles they will face! Because, when I brought you through the fire, you sang!
You sang, with your head lifted high, and your voices shouting the words that I had given!
Be aware that your best days are ahead! Rejoice and again I say rejoice, for your Father for whom you write about will now change things up as you will not write about Me, you will write to Me!”
“Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance,” Psalm 32:7.
