Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. Isaiah 58:12
I believe God is calling us back to the basics. Back to the simple truths of who he is. He wants to as the scripture says dig up old waste spaces that once were wells of living water, but we have let them dry up. He wants to revive our faith, He wants to revive our belief, He wants to bring a fresh anointing to this generation with the power to break strongholds and set the captives free. Faith takes work you have to practice it like you practice anything else and we are so used to getting what we want when we want it, we aren’t always good at this we don’t have a lot of discipline. However, God is calling us back to these things. He is wanting his believers to stand up and stand apart in this hour to reconcile this generation that has fallen away back to him but, we must be different we must look different. If we look the same, they won’t see us but more importantly they won’t see him! 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
How do we stand up in the hour or stand apart? By declaring the truth of who God is even when its unpopular. The bible says be not conformed in this hour. Instead of teaching us the truth of God we see more and more people coming away from what God has wanted for his people in favor telling people what they want to hear for various reasons money, to fit in, fear, or their own gain. However, God never called us to an easy walk he has called us to stand out and stand apart in this hour and to not conform. If we are going to make a difference in this world, if we want to see God’s power and his miracles in this hour then we must be willing to step out and hear what God is telling us and act on that even if it makes us different or unpopular. 13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven Matthew 5:13-16.
I believe that God is trying to restructure this church age that we are in because the church has been out of order and has covered over the truths of God that once brought us Gods power, his prosperity, and his deliverance. So, as he rearranges and revives our spirits he is also reviving and rearranging the church. Don’t lose heart and don’t conform or be afraid but be willing to stand up for God and stand out in this hour so we might see a great move of God. As we come into alignment with the word so will the things around us. I always like to add a worship song because worship is so powerful! I pray the song blesses you. If you are new to entering into God’s presence worship helps! Listen to the words and ask God to awaken you.
