“Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.”Psalm 24:7
The Lord says, “I am restoring your passion, joy, and intimacy with your bridegroom. Many have become so weary from the constant battles, they are crying out to Me and wondering if I’ve forsaken them. Beloved, it is quite the contrary. I have been by your side all along, forging you like a diamond through the very trials that you have been encountering.
Even though the night season has been long and you may not presently understand, you have trusted Me none the less. Even as you’ve said within the depths of your heart, “though he slay me, I will trust Him” (Job 13:15). Beloved, weeping may endure through the night, but truly joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:51). You have now shifted into a new season; winter has past and spring has come!
“For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have already appeared in the land; the time has arrived for pruning the vines, and the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land. The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along!’”Song of Songs 2:11-13
“Do not fear! Your deliverance is at hand. I am restoring all! I am loving you back to life again. Though you have felt alone and forsaken, I have been the friend by your side that has stuck closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). You have endured much pruning and now you will bear much fruit- even greater than that of your past season (John 15:2).
“You are entering a mighty season of harvest and promotion! Lift your eyes, your deliverance has come. I am bringing restoration of your passion, joy, and intimacy. Truly, your latter shall be greater and you shall see and testify of My goodness in the land of the living. Rejoice, for I make all things new!”
“Yet I believe with all my heart, that I will see again your goodness, Yahweh, in the land of life eternal!”Psalm 27:13
