If you're suddenly feeling uncomfortable in a place where you used to thrive, there may be a reason for that. I heard the Lord say that He is moving in many people's lives right now in order to kick them out of the nest and help them soar.
This help is coming in a strange way and carries these characteristics:
1. There is a lessening of God's permissive grace that used to help you stay where you wanted to be, without stretching yourself and doing what you are called to do.
I am hearing Holy Spirit refer to this as “common grace,” but He is not referring to the common grace on leaders that restrains evil in nations. The way I am hearing the Lord tell me about this common grace, He is referring to a grace commonly available as permissive grace.
The way I am hearing it, this permissive grace has been a common grace, freely available to all in the past; a grace that has helped them do things, especially to work in jobs, that they were not necessarily called to. It has been a keeping grace, where God has blessed the work of your hands even if that work was not His eventual best for you.
That kind of commonly-available, permissive grace is lessening. God's grace is changing in manifestation to kick you out of the nest and help you soar.
Even good nests can be high up, and you can see a lot if you're sitting in that nest. But even the best nests are still cages. Only the people who fly get to experience real freedom, and live out both the joy and the freedom of God's best.
2. There is an increase of “destiny grace” to meet your steps of faith.
Father God is roaring over His people with destiny grace. In this time, He is forcing you out of your nest by removing the feathers that previously lined your nest and made it comfortable.
Father desires you to go after Him and press into His high call with everything you've got. In this season, every step of faith that you take in obedience to God's call on your life will now be met with extreme AND QUICK answers from the Lord.
Those answers may be either “yes” or “no,” but the “no” will only happen to protect you if you have mis-heard God. Everything that you hear from Him that is accurate, you will find backed up with His extreme grace and strength.
God is kicking many aspiring entrepreneurs out of their previous nests right now.
He is calling entrepreneurs of all kinds–whether in ministry or more traditional business–away from a place that previously felt safe, and into their respective destinies. INTO the businesses and dreams and ministries and opportunities they have always imagined they would have.
So marvel not that the place in which you were happy suddenly doesn't feel right anymore. Don't fret if you are suddenly struggling in your job on one side, but seeing an explosion of creative ideas on the other side.
CHASE THE GRACE.
Where grace is manifest, you will feel divine flow, joy, and fruit. Don't abandon the place where you have been unless GOD tells you to, and don't abandon it UNTIL He tells you to.
However, start now with your dream. Plan your work and work your plan. You will find that God will meet you there.
