Recently, I had an encounter with the Lord and I heard the Lord speaking over many daughters of God, “In the stillness, you will sing”.
The Lord is drawing many daughters of God into a deep place of ministry in His presence where He is bringing stillness to their soul. There is a deep place of peace that the Lord is bringing these ones into. Where the battle has been fierce, where the trials have been fiery, where the journey has been long and the souls of many are empty, struggling and weary, the Lord is bringing these ones deep into the rest of His love and presence will never before. He is quieting the souls of these ones in His love. He is bringing forth a level of refreshment that they have not experienced before. He is bringing them into encounters with His heart in such a deep way, that it is causing their hearts to come back to life. It is causing passion, vision, and life to arise within their hearts again.
I saw Jesus bringing many of these daughters of God into this place of encounter beside still waters that were bringing such deep peace that surpasses understanding that is found in who Jesus is and in His presence. This beautiful river of stillness that I saw the Lord bringing them to was in the most beautiful garden. It was the garden of intimacy. It was the place of Psalm 23. As He drew these ones deep into this place, I watched as they lay down beside the still waters (Psalm 23:2) and Jesus placed His hands upon their hearts. As He did I heard the sound of defribulators in the spirit. His eyes locked with theirs, His eyes that burn like flames of fire they began to weep and weep and weep as they were OVERCOME WITH HIS LOVE.
His eyes locked with theirs, looking not away, the very gaze of delight in His eyes for them, His very pleasure of who they are, began to cause their hearts to beat again to the beat of LIFE. Hopelessness was falling away. Depression was breaking off. Sadness was melting away. Chains and deep wounds of trauma were being healed. Fear was fleeing, strongholds of anxiety were becoming a thing of the past. As His eyes blazed with fire, healing was manifesting. Deliverance was happening. It was in the revelation of His nature and His undying, passionate, fierce love for them that wholeness and wellness were returning.
He spoke again: “You are My delight and I rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17) You have measured My delight in you by what you ‘do’ for Me, but My delight in you comes from who you are in Me, and who I created you to be. You work not for My delight. You are My delight.”
I began to see the minds of so many of these daughters of God, racing. His words of truth were confronting belief systems within them of having to ‘earn’ the pleasure of Jesus, to ‘earn’ the love of Jesus. I began to hear Romans 5:8 thundering in the atmosphere:
“But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly”.
The Lord spoke again while His hands still remained on their hearts: “It’s the awakening of Romans 5:8”
I began to see that in this place of deep stillness with the Lord that He was awakening the revelation of Romans 5:8. The depth of healing that I was seeing take place through the revelation of this Scripture, I do not have words for. It was the deepest I have ever seen. It was a transformation on a level that was indescribable. It wasn’t ‘partial’ transformation, it was a complete transformation in the awakening of the love of God demonstrated through the death of our beautiful Jesus and a ‘coming into a true identity that was unprecedented. What struck me was many of these daughters of God had walked with the Lord for many, many years but were now suddenly coming into a place of confrontation with the orphan spirit they had carried and they were now suddenly coming into the place of a true revelation of their identity of daughters of God. Some of these daughters of God knew of the deep struggle with identity within their hearts and this was a time of long-awaited breakthrough, but for others, they had not even recognised these issues of the heart and the Lord was suddenly bringing them to the surface to bring healing.
The Lord spoke again:
“I am causing your heart to burn with My love like never before. Your heart is being UNDONE by My love. You will sing again. In the stillness, you will sing. I am bringing stillness to your soul. I am restoring your soul. The encounter with Me in this place of Psalm 23 is bringing deep refreshing. Do not rush this place of stillness, stay with Me and allow Me to breathe life into thee. I am bringing you into My rest like you have not known before. I am bringing you into a depth of My rest that will cause you to arise in greater strength.”
FREEDOM FROM GLASS CEILINGS
I watched as this deep encounter with Jesus and many daughters of God was taking place, their hearts coming back to life. He was loving them back to life. I then began to hear the sound of glass shattering. I looked and I saw “glass ceilings” shattering. The Lord then spoke “I have called many of My daughters into places of influence like Esther and Deborah but they have been contained. The enemy has come in many different forms to keep them contained, but today I declare through the power of My Spirit and the deep work of My Spirit within them, I am breaking the assignments of the enemy that has kept them contained. Not only will they sing again, but once My work is done within them in this time of stillness, there is greater commissioning that will manifest. They will go forth and take their place as the Esther’s and Deborah’s like never before.”
“It is almost midnight for you My daughters, it is almost fullness for you to step into the new realms. The place of Psalm 23 is an ever-present reality and revelation that you will now walk in continually in a deeper way every day, but there is also a divine Selah, a divine pause to “come away with Me” in the natural to allow Me to do the work that I need to do, but this is but for a moment for Me to bring healing, deliverance, restoration, and freedom to you. Then many of you will be commissioned to go forth like Esther and Deborah and you will go forth healed, whole, restored, and with an unhindered ROAR.”
