Three Words for the lonely and tired Watchman
My Beloved One,
You’ve been undergoing such depth of overwhelming pressure and affliction that your mind and heart have become limited to the here and now.
Your priority now is how to get through today without breaking down completely…how to put food on your table today…how to hold on for one more day…
See, there is an after this for you and for your family…..the story doesn’t end like this. There is a hope and a future for you. I have good and prosperous thoughts and plans for you that are more than the stars in the sky and all the sand on the seashore.
I know you feel stuck in that situation and it feels like it will never change. You feel like I planted you in a desert….a lifeless, barren land. But is there anything too hard for me?
Will I not change your desert areas into gardens of Eden? I can do what no one else can do. Look up to Me…look up to Me…I know you can’t see any hope in sight and no one around you to turn to, but I am Hope. I am Strength. I AM! Look to Me and be saved.”
Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‘We have become old, dry bones—all hope is gone. Our nation is finished.’ 12 Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the Lord. 14 I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the Lord has spoken!’”
Your Daddy, The One who cares for you,
My Precious One,
Because of the trials and battles you’ve been going through, you have grown tired in every sense. Your body is tired. Your heart and mind are worn out.
There are many days you’ve not wanted to get out of bed, after nights of no real rest, because you didn’t feel you had the strength to face another day.
You’ve been slowly shutting down socially and emotionally too. Worn out. Tired. At the very end of your strength.
You are feeling helpless as you look at all the things you need to do and what you believe you should have accomplished by now, even this year, but you are so worn out…so tired…
I take you up in My arms right now. I take you up in My everlasting arms that have carried you from the day you were born.
I am your Strength and at this point when you feel your strength is completely gone, I arise and become strong on your behalf.
I stir up your hope and faith again. I command My joy to arise within you again like a fountain.
Let My joy flood your spirit and soul right now and become your strength! I renew your strength. You will not give up.
Yes, you are hard pressed on every side right now, but I give you My Word – you will not be crushed.
You have been struck down, misunderstood and hurt, but you are not alone and you will not be destroyed.
Come now, rest in My arms. Release all your weight, your burdens, your unanswered questions, your frustrations, your weaknesses in My Arms.
I care for you. I will carry you. I will give you solutions you hadn’t thought of before, and I will lead you through the way of escape I have already provided for you!
And now in My Strength and by the power of My Spirit, I charge and release you this day to take off and soar like an eagle!
I arise within you and stir you up! I propel you! I push you forward! I accelerate you! In spite of what’s been happening, I make you strong!
Your Burden Bearer,
I see a path, and a lonely person walking through it. There is no one else in sight; it is a lonely path. No companion, no one to hold your hand, care for you or comfort you.
I see the Lord pursuing you. I see Him rushing towards you like one running to save or rescue. Now He is walking beside you.
He says to me concerning you, “I am the God of the lonely. Those who feel no one understands their journey. Those who have bled and been torn, but are still trudging along with every inch of strength they can muster.”
I see that the enemy has over time, released thoughts that are negative concerning your life, your circumstances and other people into your heart and mind.
These thoughts have become like poison in you heart and mind and I see that they have caused you to become really frail and broken inside.
Long after your painful experiences happened, the negative thoughts and feelings turning over and over within you continued to break you even further.
I see the Lord placing His arms around you and drawing you close to Himself. So close that you can feel His breathing and heartbeart. You can feel His groanings of compassion and mercy towards you.
So close that all your weight, brokenness, frustration, being drained and worn out is being released into Him…and you’re beginning to enter into His embrace and rest…tears flowing down your cheeks.
I hear soft sobbing and moans from your lips as you release every weight and burden into His arms…
I hear the Lord say, “I replace those thoughts that have been tormenting you with thoughts of hope and peace. I remove from you thoughts and feelings of despair and hopelessness.
I give you My very own peace as a guard for your mind and heart, My Precious One. You see, if your inner man is stable in hope and peace, stable and rested in My arms that cannot let you fall, nothing external can overwhelm you.
No floods can drown you. No fires can consume you. I give you My strength on the inside.”
I now see the Lord turn you around and lead you back the way you came. It suddenly dawns on me then, that you were going down the wrong road, led and guided by despair and discouragement and that in your heart. You had abandoned His promises for you and let them go. But with His arms around you, now, He leads you back.
Enjoy the journey. You’re safe in His Hands.
