So wake up, you living gateways!
Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory,
for he is about to come through you.
You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?”
The Lord, armed and ready for battle,
the Mighty One, invincible in every way! | Psalm 24:7-8 (TPT)
“Beloved, My resurrecting power is hovering over your life. I have seen your tears, and your very cries have reached My throne room. Though on the surface it may appear that your circumstances have remained the same (or, in some cases, even grown worse), know that I am at work. Even now, My resurrecting power is bringing new life to all that has seemed lost. I am the God who causes streams to flow in the wilderness; I am the God who parted the Red Sea and made a way, even where there seemed to be no way. Will I not do the same for you?
“Throw off hope deferred and despair, and reject the lie that would say, “nothing has changed or will change.” For I say everything is changing! I am blowing my Zoe-life onto you and resurrecting those dreams that you have laid aside. It’s not finished yet, and your story is far from over! Truly the best is yet to come, and things will be better than ever. I’m giving you beauty for ashes and joy where you’ve experienced mourning. Wait in joyful anticipation, for I am going to come through for you,” says the Lord!
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm—
my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
Then you will know that I am in Israel,
that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other;” (Joel 2:25-27).
