The Lord gave me a comforting prophetic word that I felt like I am supposed to share with you today.
This word meant a lot to me personally because the Lord has been taking me into a period of hiddenness. Hiddenness is where you don't “feel” God like you normally do. You don't have the manifestations of glory and shaking knees in worship like you might have at other times.
Instead, “hiddenness” is a time when God plays hide-and-seek with you.
He's always right beside you, but He pulls back on the manifestation sometimes because it makes you hungry and you will seek Him more. Then, as soon as you do, BAM! He's right there.
So God has been taking me into a period of hiddenness. I have been through this a number of times before, but I must say I don't love it. 🙂 And every time He takes me into hiddenness, I always wonder first if I have sinned against Him in some way, or grieved the Holy Spirit, that would keep me from those strong manifestations of the Holy Spirit.
After I pray about it and the Holy Spirit doesn't convict me of anything, it's usually only then that I figure out it must be hiddenness. (Sometimes I'm slow to arrive at the hiddenness party.) 🙂
So here is the word the Lord gave me this morning. It's from Isaiah 41:8-11, and the Lord wants you to know:
You are the Lord's servant. In Christ, you are the descendant of Abraham. He has chosen you and has NOT cast you away. You have not offended Him, and He has not abandoned you.
You are not to be afraid; but you are to rest in His perfect love. He is with you.
The Lord your God will strengthen you. He will help you. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand.
ALL those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced. They shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.
Is this word for you today too? Remember, according to 2 Corinthians 1:4, any comforting word the Lord gives one is for the comfort of all. So if this word speaks to your heart today too, would you leave a comment below and let me know? Let's praise God together!
