This morning, I released 3 urgent prophetic bulletins. They were about 3 specific heart-agonies the Lord showed me His people are having right now, and His answer to them. I received a couple of questions about those, and I wanted to answer one of them tonight.
Someone asked me: What does it mean to be in a spiritual ICU season of rest and recovery?
I asked the Lord what He has to say about the matter, and He said this:
“You are in a spiritual season of ICU-like rest and recovery because you have been very ill from a burnout standpoint. You have been burning the candle at both ends far too long, sometimes out of necessity; and I have delivered you from your burdens.
I am now healing you, but it is going to be a process.
It took you a long time to get here, and it will take time to get out of this place. Realistically speaking, you have been in a place of desperation in your soul for many years:
- You were in a place you weren’t called to be.
- You were attacked.
- You were challenged.
- You were maligned and talked about.
- People who should have been on your side were on the enemy’s side instead.
You wept many tears, but I saw you through it all.
The “ICU” place of rest is a place in which I want you to know that I SEE YOU.
Get it? “ICU” … I SEE YOU. I see the trials you have endured, but you stood fast in Me. I see the friends who stabbed you in the back; I removed their knives Myself. I see the pastors who did you harm. I see the family members who bad-mouthed you to your entire family, ruining your relationships unjustly.
I see you.
And I want you to know: I will restore the YEARS the locusts have eaten.
Years of your life have been stolen away from My Kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy. Years’ worth of effectiveness were stolen, for you had to fight the enemy because of the sins of others. The devil did this to you, but I want you to know right now:
What the enemy meant for evil, I am turning around for your good … because I SEE YOU.
I see every fiber of your being. I see your heart. I see how faithful you have been. I see where you have been and what you have done. I see every moment you have spent in the prayer closet, and I see the agony of your spirit as you forgave.
I was there when you cried out in great, guttural cries, when you experienced more agony of heart than you have ever experienced before. I saw the injustice done to you, and I saw the purity of your love for Me and others.
And now, I am healing you.
Your body and soul still need to be healed. Your spirit is healed already, but much injustice was done and I am going to undo it. Think not that I cannot do this. I can do all things, and I do all things well.
But in the next 3 months, you are going to see the manifestation of this in your body and soul. You will be in the intensive care unit of My love, for I care about and for you INTENSELY. My care for you is watchcare deeper and better than the best parent or guardian in the world. I AM YOUR SHEPHERD. I am the one who will require the flock at the hand of the false shepherds, and I have redeemed you out of the pit and corruption.
I am now restoring and healing your soul.
You will see Me clothe you with the cloak of honor over the next 3 months. Doors you never imagined will open to you, for I the Lord your God am opening them. I am making you to feed on the highest of mountains. I am ushering you into fine and prosperous grazing on My highest hills and My sweetest pastures.
This will be an intense season of rest, recovery, and restoration.
If you get busy, you will not miss it entirely–but you will miss part of what I need and desire to do for you. I need you to be still. I need you to sleep, eat, and rest. The journey has been too great for you; arise and eat, then sleep again. You may not quit doing the other things I have called you to do in this season, but you MUST stop doing other things I have NOT called you to do.
My process of refining requires deep rest.
This is the only way I can reach deep into your heart to heal. Ask Me for spiritual anesthetic if you need help resting. I will help you! I will give you courage! I will separate from you the busyness of life if you will let Me do it.
I love you, My child, and I SEE YOU.
Not one hair on your head falls off without My notice. Not one pore on your body has escaped My protection. It is the time for some serious recovery, serious restoration, serious healing. Allow Me to work in your life as you rest.”
Wow, again. Thank You, Lord. Beloved, is this word for you? If so, leave a comment below and tell the Lord a big THANK YOU!
