“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, so that we, through the patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope;” (Romans 15:4). In a previous post on thevoiceofthewriter,.wordpress. “The Revival of Hope,” the Lord gave me this prophetic word to share with you:
“The Spirit of the Lord is going to show you a very compelling revelation that is going to open the eyes of your understanding concerning how you perceive His working in your life. He is calling you to accede, to yield to Him. He is calling you to present your self as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Him, not being conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing of your mind, and, by being conformed to the image of His dear Son.
As the disciples had forgotten all about the sights and sounds of the scenes where the miracles took place, the Spirit of the Lord is making you aware that He has not forgotten the sights and sounds of the scene of when you first came to Him, and how you came to know Him as your first love.
Come away now, says the Lord, and I will restore unto you the years that the swarming locusts have eaten. The eyes of your understanding are going to be enlightened again and you will know that the hope of your calling is being revived and restored unto you For I will perform My good Word toward you to bring you back to this place. For I am you shield, and your exceedingly great reward.”
The presence of the Holy Spirit can be recognized by the sweetness of a worship song, or a praise song that you suddenly are aware of. It started subconsciously; then you begin to realize that you didn’t start that song.
He is the One who started the song. He is, even right now, giving you a revelation that will be so compelling that it will open the eyes of your understanding concerning how you perceive His working in your life.
And as you yield yourself, and allow His song to to prevail in your heart, the Lord, Who truly is your first love, will begin to retake His rightful place in your life, Your acceptance of His song in your heart will become the very song He has been wanting to hear from you all along. He is restoring your soul so you can be the worshiper He has called you to be.
Now, hear the Word of the Lord again:
“Come away now, says the Lord, and I will restore unto you the years that the swarming locusts have eaten, The eyes of your understanding are going to be enlightened again, and you will know that the hope of your calling is being revived and restored unto you. For I will perform My Good Word toward you to bring you back to this place. For I am your Shield, and your exceedingly great reward, says the Lord.”
As the worship song says: “Oh Lord, my Rock, You’re my strength in weakness. Rescue me, oh Lord…You are my Hope, and Your promise never fails me, and my desire is to follow You forever, For You are good, for You are good, for You are good to me.”
Hope in God; for He is the help of your countenance, and your God.
