Do you know the Lord is calling you to something, but you aren't sure if, how, or when to proceed? If so, the Lord gave me a very encouraging prophetic word for you today!
In the Spirit, I heard the rat-a-tat-tat of drums.
They were not heavy drums, but snare drums: the drums used to assemble troops in parades. I thought this was odd, as I would typically hear heavy war drums in the Spirit.
So I asked the Lord why I heard these particular drums, and this is what He said:
“I am calling people out with huge destinies, but I am calling them in a different way than I used to. In these end times, people will have to decide to follow Me and My call on their lives with more stick-to-it-iveness than ever before. Warfare against them will be stronger than it has ever been in the history of the earth. So, each person will need to know beyond a shadow of a doubt what I have called them to do–and they will have to chase that call.
I am calling forth My sent ones, but I am not calling them loudly. Each person has to listen. Each person has to decide to pursue everything I have for them with all their heart.
It is going to take effort.
You will have to use creativity to arrive at the open doors I have for you. You will need to seek Me diligently AND FIRST every day. You will need to be brave and do things that no one has ever done before.
Doors are not going to open for these sent ones without effort.
The strongest callings require the biggest foundations. I am requiring effort from My sent ones with the most influential callings because I am teaching them to flex their muscles. No one can do it for them. Just like a butterfly must exercise his wings in order to escape his cocoon, each of these sent ones must flex their spiritual, physical, relational, and motivational muscles in order to fly.
The key is that I will be with each of My sent ones.
My Word is still true that, unless I build the house, they labor in vain that build it. So I will build the house through each of My sent ones. However, I will be using them as My hands and feet. Things will work–they know not how; they simply will know that it must be Me.
But it will still take effort. Without effort, people give up too easily. My sent ones cannot give up in this hour. Instead, each one must tune his or her ear into My frequency. You must listen for My still, small voice and follow My leading.
I want to do more on the earth, but I need you to push Me and give me permission to do what I want to do through your life. So rattle the gates of Heaven. Rattle the pillars of My temple with your prayers and fasting. Contend in the Spirit realm for more destiny, more calling, more opportunity, and more fruit from your work than you ever imagined.
It's time to make progress toward your destiny, but you will have to choose.
If I pull you, you will be too weak. You will not be able to sustain what I want to do in and through you. So YOU will have to choose to push Me, and you will have to persevere. The biggest callings are the hardest to obtain in manifestation.
I will give you all you need, bit by bit.
Little by little I will drive them out before you. Little by little your destiny will come. Again, it's all about the strength of the foundation. I need My strongest warriors right now–those who have been hidden away in My secret place the longest. Those who have become strong will do great exploits.
I am ready to perform those great exploits. Contend for them.
But part of contending is action, so pursue My high call on your life with all your heart. Fight through the turmoil. Press into everything you know I want you to do.
As you do so, you will find My hand was pushing you forward all along.
Remember My Word: ‘Choose ye this day whom ye will serve … But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord' (Joshua 24:15).”
