Then [he] said to Jesse, Are all your sons here? [Jesse] said, There is yet the youngest; he is tending the sheep. Samuel said to Jesse, Send for him; for we will not sit down to eat until he is here… and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward. I Samuel 16:11, 13
This is just a short post to remind those of you who are carefully attending to the things that you need to attend to and yet have not moved ahead for one reason or another… It’s your time now. To those who have come up against bullies or negative people who have done all they could to swash your gift, undermine your value, or exclude your presence… It’s your time now. To those who refused to get bitter, for those who continued to saturate themselves in God’s presence, for those who waited out the darkness believing morning to come… Good morning. It’s your time now.
Others may have discounted you but let me tell you, you are one of God’s best kept secrets that is getting ready to be revealed. There is nothing nor any one that can prevent your unveiling. You have been subtly distanced from the crowd in order to hear God’s heart and gain your definition from Him instead of from man. You don’t look to people to validate you therefore you are free to walk in the purpose and plan of God. Yes, others will be shocked and may even whisper against you, but your heart is fixed (Psalm 108) because you know who your God is and you know who you are in Him. In spite of all you have been through, you stayed close to the heart of God and now you have been called to do great exploits. People are about to be astonished as they witness God in you.
It’s your time now to awaken to the beauty of your dreams. It’s your time to arise to the occassion that God has set before you. It’s time to walk in God’s greatness, knowing that what is getting ready to occur is not all about you but it’s about God- His plan and His purpose! You have been called for and others won’t even be able to sit down and eat until you arrive. There is a mandate upon your life. You must release what God has given you to release. God is about to show up in a great way and you must be there to represent Him. You must be there to speak to the fall of the giants in the land. You must be there to declare the goodness, the greatness, and the victory of the Lord to all nations. You must stand as a symbol of courage and influence. Now is the time. Awaken, arise, shake the dust off, put on strength, break forth into joy, and don’t fear the giants (Is. 52). Understand that the Lord has anointed you mightily. Yes, God has already equipped you with everything you need to do what He has called you to do. What are you waiting for? We are waiting.
