I had a dream recently where the Lord spoke clearly, “I am raising up a people of perseverance.”
God is raising up a people of perseverance. Right now God is dealing with the issues of the heart that would hinder perseverance. Those areas of the heart that continue to raise themselves up, that fear links into, that anxiety lives in, where discouragement or disappointment took root, where the weeds have gone deep into the gardens of people’s hearts. God is uprooting those things now.
God is strengthening His people. God is refreshing His people. God is healing His people. God is fortifying His people.
Many of you have been battered, many of you have been bruised by what you have walked through. Many of you struggle to hope. Many of you struggle to dream. Many of you are scared to “believe again.” Many of you are continually faced with the thoughts of it being “easier to give up” than to keep moving forward.
I prophesy over you right now in the name of Jesus that the Lord is doing a deep work in your heart and He is raising you up as one who embodies perseverance.
You will Encounter the Fire in His Eyes of Love for You
The Lord showed me that for those of you who have really been struggling, feeling weak, feeling sad, feeling discouraged, feeling weary, there are encounters upon you with Jesus where you are going to encounter the fire in His eyes of love for you and it will impart a deeper fire in your belly, His fire.
The enemy has tried to take many of you out. He has tried to steal from you, kill and destroy and through it all, you have continued to stand. You have continued to remain but you have not been feeling as strong as you used to be. Many of you feel the fire has gone. Many of you have been feeling the strength to continue to chase after Him and all He has for you, depleting.
Get ready to get back to your first love. Get ready for your heart to burn for Jesus like never before. Get ready to go back to that place of deep intimacy with Jesus. Your heart is about to burn for Jesus like it never has. Many of you are going to have encounters with Jesus where you will literally be mesmerized by the fire in His eyes. The healing, the revelation, the impartation that is going to be released upon you as you see His loving, burning gaze towards you. The revelation of who Jesus is, is going to be burned in you deeper than ever as you see His eyes!!!!!!!!!!
“He wore many regal crowns, and His eyes were flashing like flames of fire.” Revelation 19:12 (The Passion Translation)
Many of you have been living under confusion, many of you have been feeling like you have lost your vision in the battle, but I prophesy in the name of Jesus that in seeing His eyes, being locked into His gaze, these deep encounters, your vision will not only be restored but you will have greater vision than before. The haze will clear as you see Jesus and His loving gaze towards you.
Many of you have been looked down upon over your life. Many of you have been looked down upon recently, and you have been living under a cloud of condemnation, fear of punishment, and lies concerning your identity. These encounters with Jesus, are going to break all of that.
Arise in Perseverance and Power
You are about to arise in perseverance and the power of His Spirit in greater ways. Your seeing Him, is about to change everything within you.
You are going to arise with the fire in your belly that cannot be quenched. You will no longer know weariness, or fear like Elijah that would cause you to want to run and hide. You are coming out and coming out with fire. You are coming out strong. You are coming out empowered by His Spirit. You have been tested and tried but you are coming out now carrying fire, His fire. You will not be silenced. Your vision will no longer be hindered. Giving up is no longer an option.
James 1:2-4, 12 “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. Blessed is the man who remains steadfast (or perseveres) under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”
Where many of you have had your faith shaken by fear and disappointment, get ready to see His goodness, miracles, and amazing testimonies all around that will restore your faith.
I see you chasing after Him with greater vigorous strength and joy! Restored! Refreshed! Replenished! Rejuvenated and strengthened with a deeper fire, conviction and hearts cry of John 6:67-68. “So Jesus said to his twelve, ‘And you – do you also want to leave?’ Peter spoke up and said, ‘But Lord, where would we go? No one but YOU gives us the revelation of eternal life'” (The Passion Translation)
The enemy has tried to chase many of you away from your promise, your destiny, your inheritance, but no more.
He is raising you up in perseverance and power. Strengthening your faith, awakening you to your authority. You are crossing over and taking more ground than you have ever taken, moving into greater fruitfulness than you have known, breakthrough at the heart. Harvest time, and the strength within you to carry it.
