5 Encouraging, Prophetic Words About Rest

Encouraging, prophetic words about rest | FromHisPresence.com

Dear readers, I know many of you feel tired and weary, so I asked the Lord to give me a piece of encouragement for you today. He gave me these 5 encouraging, prophetic words. If any of these resonate with you and speak directly to your spirit, would you let me know? (And I’m so grateful for how our Daddy God encourages His kids, aren’t you?) 🙂

Here are the 5 encouraging, prophetic words I felt like the Lord is speaking for you today:

1. “Come to Me, My child. You are so weary from walking a long and dusty road.

There is sand in your eyes from the things you’ve been through. I desire to take you in My arms, protect you from the world, and RESTORE you in all things.

My good plans for you are not over. Your enemies have not bested Me. I am stronger. I am your Refuge, your Shield, and your Exceeding Great Defense. I am the Rock that is higher than you are, and I am quite capable of bringing you into the fullness of your destiny no matter what you have been through. Seek shelter under the shadow of My wings.

Psalm 17:8-9: “Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me.””

2. “My child, I have protected you all these years.

You have no idea what I have protected you from. And I am protecting you still. It’s Who I Am: your Protector, Provider, and your Rest. You are SAFE in My arms. Nothing shall by any means harm you.

So rest in Me, My child. Snuggle up to Me and let’s just be close. I will perfect all things that concern you as you just seek Me. Matthew 6:33: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.””

3. “The sands of time have worn you down, but I desire to make all things new in your life.

The words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life. Would you separate yourself to Me for a time? Would you be filled with My Word, My Spirit, My life? I promise you it will be worth your while. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am the Solution for whatever you need.

Psalm 61:1-4: “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.””

4. “Resting in Me is not as hard as you think.

It involves seeking My Person–Who I Am, what I like, what I hate, what makes Me laugh, what makes Me weep. The same way you would develop intimacy with your best friend is the way you develop intimacy with Me. You were created in My image, and you were created to conform to My image in all things.

So let’s talk. Let’s hang out. Let’s spend time together. I love you very much and I crave your company, just like you crave Mine, whether you know it or not. We were made for each other. YOU are the desire of My heart. Allow me the privilege of intimacy with you. You are free to enjoy Me. I’m fun to be with, and I think you are amazing.

As we do life together and develop closeness with each other, you will find rest for your spirit, soul, and body. Psalm 138:8: “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

5. “Time together with you is the highlight of My day.

I want nothing more than to warm your heart with My words of love. I adore you. You are my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased.

Would you come away with me so I can stare into your beautiful eyes, beloved? I am your Daddy, and I dote on you. You are precious and beloved in My sight, and I desire to pour out all good things on you–first and foremost, My love. In the shadow of my wings, you will find peace.

Psalm 91:1-2: “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.””

Does one or more of these words leap off the screen into your heart? If so, the Holy Spirit is speaking to you. He loves you so much, and He desires the pleasure of your company. May you find rest today as you delight in Him.

If the Lord ministered to you through one of these words, would you leave a comment below and let me know? I’d sure appreciate it! And thanks!

  1. Thank you Jamie! The words given to you about prophetic words for rest, truly blessed my heart, and I know that God gave these words to you for me…..so clear, so exact, and only for God. Thank you for being a true and faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  2. God keep on blessing you Jamie. The first part encourages me dearly. Trying to find my way through a mental maze currently, I feel I am constantly at forks on the road. And I need to make decisions to move forward,one crossroad at the time. In relying on the Word of God, I need to discern the path and look forward. The constant mental exercise is tiresome and I praise God for your message.

    1. Henri, I’m so glad Papa blessed you. I pray He would give you great wisdom in your situation (James 1:5). I bless you with great clarity of thought and insight. Psalm 32:8: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” I pray that Daddy God would shine the light brightly on the right choices you need to make, and dim the lights on all the other choices. In Jesus’ name.

  3. Thank you for your obedience to God. Number 5 got me bawling like a baby. I know God loves me but that spoke to the core of heart and allowed me to understand the depths of His love for me in a completely new way. Thank you!!

    1. Melanese, wow, praise God. Oh, He loves you sooooooo much. I pray He would baptize you in His love all over again today, and help you feel the comfort and warmth of His embrace.
      Thank you for letting me know! Have a wonderful day!

  4. This evening, I was in tears talking with my husband how weary I am, how hard and painful this road that we’re on is. Hoped for some sort of spiritual encouragement when I picked up my phone on the way to bed, and then read this post. Thankyou Jamie, for confirming that my Daddy understands.

    1. Wow, Amy. Thank You, Jesus, for hugging my sister. May you sense Papa’s arms around you today and hide in the shelter of His wings. May you feel safe there, and find comfort, peace, and rest in His embrace.
      Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful day!

  5. Lots of good things and encouragement here; ‘Him I will trust’ leapt out at me though. Your post has reminded me that he is in control of all things, no matter how severe and including our situation. I think he put this on my heart through your post. Thank you 🙂

    1. Oh yes, brother, He is so strong and mighty and nothing can ever conquer Him. He sees your situation, whatever it is, and He has an awesome plan for bringing you through to the other side VICTORIOUS. He loves you very much and will never leave you or forsake you.
      Thank you for sharing. May you be intensely, outrageously blessed today.

      1. Thank you so much, you’re comment is really encouraging to me. I feel very blessed. Thanks for sharing, and may he massively bless you too 🙂

  6. Thank you! The majority of those words were greatly needed ~ thank you so much for that Blessing. It was so touching & heartfelt that I cried knowing it was our Father who crossed our paths & guided me to your words…thank you again 🙂

    1. Amen, Tonya. He’s so amazing. I know He adores you and desires nothing more than to shower you with His blessings and goodness, chiefly Himself… and that everything you need will be added to your life as you seek Him first. He’s so good. I’m so glad Daddy God blessed you. May you sense His presence and affections all day today, and may He continue to pour out on you times of refreshing in His presence.
      Thank you for reading and for letting me know. 🙂

  7. Thanks for these encouraging words!! I am so weary after !any years of chronic illness, and when you are physically tired allk the time, it certainly wears on you spiritually and emotionally. I have been really learning that I can’t mess up Gods plans for my life- that He is the one who provides and protects and itse not on me, I don’t have to earn it! “The Solution to whatever I need”- so often we think if our problems would just wor out then we can have peace. I am learning there will be trouble- Jesus said so- but He also said He’s overcome it, so we need not fear! So I can have peace before I see it all work out!

  8. Thank you for your prophetical words!
    The Holy Spirit has used you to minister to my heart this morning. You’re words have been a blessing to my soul!

  9. Wow thank you truly I really feel a inner peace that I so need right now. Jc rocks and he is fun to hang out with he also likes humer so joke with him as I do 🙂

    Thank you Jamie for your words of wisdom & encouragement. Your posts that I’ve had the pleasure of reading are so anointed, filled with His Wisdom Truth & counsel. Know your words bless each reader right where they are & continue to walk in His anointing. I also call Him Papa God & that is one main reason I subscribed.
