The Spirit of the Lord showed me that there are prophets and prophetesses in the Body who are rusty. If that's you, the Lord says to you today: “Awake, O rusty prophet!”
Here's what I heard the Lord say:
“Some of you, My precious children, know that you have been designated into the office of the prophet; it is your DNA with which I have created you. And because you don't have a title, you have allowed yourself to become rusty.
But, My child, a title was never part of My job description for a prophet.
If you are a prophet, you are a prophet because I made you one. I endued you with calling and I have pulverized you in the fire until nothing remains but My love, My power, and My character.
You, however, have not pushed in like you should have. You have not abandoned your post, either; but you also have not advanced despite all odds, like I want you to. You have allowed circumstances to beat you too many times.
You don't have to have a place to prophesy in order to prophesy. You don't have to have a place to intercede in order to intercede. You don't have to have a posse in order to seek Me aggressively.
I do want you to have a place and a posse.
But in this time of transition, you've gotten rusty. You haven't lubricated the flow of the prophetic like you should have by praying in the Spirit at all times. I am proud of you for what you have done, but I challenge you to come up higher.
Come up higher, where I am.
I know you're lonely, so lonely. You wish you had people with whom to share your life. I know that. I feel your loneliness. I feel your struggle.
But you used to fall on your face and worship Me. You used to weep before Me. Your carpet used to stay damp with your tears. Now, your carpet is dry and you're barely making it through.
Allow Me to give you hope.
Wake up to the possibilities I have for you. Awake to the possibilities that I AM for you. Wake up to the JOY that you can find in Me. You know this joy. You know the peace that I am. You know.
I am calling you to drink from the well of My oil, beloved child. I am calling you back, calling you higher, calling you deeper. The road you travel is a lonely road, I know. It is a hard road. You wish you could have fun again, and you will. You wish you could enjoy your life again, and you will.
But right now is a season of testing, such that you didn't know you could endure.
I am testing you in ways I have never tested you before. I am forging you in the fires of My Spirit. I know you feel like I have abandoned you, but I have not.
I love you, My child. Awake and come to me. Love on Me again. Let your tears stain my robe as you weep and dance with Me. Forget those things that hinder you. Forget the things that worry and strain your mind. Awaken to My future and press into Me again.
