I heard the Lord say, “I am giving out new mantles of intercession!”
In this season, many who have felt their intercessory fires die out because of fatigue, burnout, and injury will find themselves suddenly pulled back into fiery intercession–the likes of which they had feared were lost to them.
These intercessors will be surprised when these new mantles of intercession come, for they will be at higher levels than each intercessor has experienced before. For example, whereas previously an intercessor was anointed to pray for a church, now they will be anointed to pray with burden for a nation.
Some intercessors who have previously had keen insight will find their insight renewed and sharpened. Others who struggled with a lack of insight before will suddenly have the insight they need. It will be a gift from the Lord.
I saw a vision of an eagle, high on a rock in a lonely place, being renewed.
The eagle, who was used to mastering the sky, had developed crust on his beak and his feathers were in rough shape. He had drawn away to this high but lonely place to be renewed.
In this vision, I saw the hand of the Lord reach out of Heaven and personally preen the eagle's feathers. Wherever He touched, new life sprang up. New feathers formed.
Then I saw the Lord grasp the eagle's head in the palm of His hand and flick off the crust from his beak with His fingers. As He did, tears fell from the eagle's eyes. The eagle had expected to have to clean himself, but the loving hand of the Creator did it for him. It felt too good to be true.
Then I saw the Lord lift the eagle in His hand and open His palm, releasing him back to the sky.
The eagle hesitated, not sure if it was really okay for him to fly again. But the Lord gently launched the eagle out into the sky.
When the bird took flight, he noticed that his wings were stronger. His vision was clearer. His body was stronger, and once again he was master of the skies.
Some of you have felt like that eagle.
You have been worn out. Weary and fatigued, you have been in a lonely place with no one around. You have felt like you have lost your vision. Sometimes, you have wondered if you have lost your anointing too.
But the Lord says to you today:
“This day, I am repairing your feathers. I am healing your heart, and I am restoring your vision. I am going to launch you into mastery of all you survey again, and you will function better there than ever before.”
The Lord is going to unite your heart after His purposes once more. He is filling you with fresh intercessory fire. His hand is upon you, even in your lonely place.
Fear not, little ones. It is the Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. He has not brought you this far to abandon you. Instead, He is re-firing you and returning you to the skies.
