Prophetic Word: When the Journey Is Too Great for You

Prophetic Word with Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comBeloved, have you been through the wringer lately? If so, I heard the Spirit of God say:

“Arise and eat, for the journey is too great for you (1 Kings 19:7).”

Then He went on to say:

“You are exhausted after what you’ve been through, and still you expect your body to soldier on. However, you cannot do this. The journey has been too great for you, and you need to consider that I am in you to give you rest.

I am God who leads you beside still waters. 

I do this because you can’t always handle speed. You can’t always handle rushing waters. When everything is closing in on you, you need peace and calm. You need rest and quiet, and you will not get them when you try to push forward to protect yourself in and of your own strength.

I want you to stop trying to keep up and just be.

You need stillness, and right now I am not going to help you be anything but still–for stillness is My will for you. You need quietness and calm, even if it is only for one day; so stop trying to push.

When crowds pushed upon My Jesus, He ministered to them–but then He sought solitude. You have been through so much, and you don’t even realize half of what you have been through. You have experienced several tectonic shifts over the past year, but you have never rested adequately.

I have three commandments for you right now: arise; eat; and rest.

Don’t try to think too much. Don’t problem-solve very much at this moment. Even if it is just for one day, stop beating yourself up for needing rest. I did not create you to solve every problem; I made you to lean on Me. 

Arise; eat; and rest.

The journey is too great for you. Don’t fear for your provision; have I not shown you over and over that I am your provision? Have I not provided for you always?

I will take care of you while you take care of what concerns Me–and that is YOU. 

You are My temple; My child; and My dwelling place. You are My beloved and My delight. You are My precious child, and I see what you cannot. 

The journey has been too great for you. Rest right now, beloved child of Mine. Don’t try to reason it out. Arise; eat; and rest. Don’t get down into self-pity. I know you don’t understand some things, but TRUST ME. Arise, eat, and rest. I am with you to sustain you.

With much love from your Abba Father.”

Thank You, Abba Father.

    I absolutely needed this word today! Thank you so much! I have been beating myself up and getting mad at God because He said He would answer me and show me things I don’t know, He said He has a purpose for me….and yet, I struggle to know the next step and I struggle…I struggle. It’s because I thought I had to have the answers now. I thought I was supposed to be ready, now. I thought I was….
    But God has come through with what I really needed. Rest. To know that He is in me. Thank you!

  26. Taranjeet Kaur says:

    Dear Jamie. God Bless you and I am glad to be connected to you online. I live alone and alone actually. I dont have much friends or i would rather say Godly friends. Sometimes I want to have conversation with a person and through you I feel I have a Godly friend now. I have been jobless and sustaining with my savings which can only hold until November. Past few weeks been too overwhelming and my health has been affected unexpectedly. I do had suicidal thoughts, fear of how will I pay my rent and bills. But I am holding on to God and today’s reading here it helped and encouraged me. Thank you so much.

    1. Keep holding onto the Lord Jesus Christ, friend! He has GOOD plans for you! Father God, give Taranjeet a will to live again–and to live with Your power, in Jesus’ mighty name!

    Dear Jamie,
    God bless you always.
    Indeed, I get over anxious and then I over think, thus going into depression and self-pity.
    But yes, I need to rest.
    Rest in my mind. Feed on the word and put myself at eass…. knowing that my creator has me in the palm of His hand. And all will be fine… in His time.
    Lord, give me the grace to remain still in You. Holy Spirit, I need you.
    Thank you Lord.
    Thank you Prophetess Jamie.. God’s chosen vessel, through whom He sends His message.
    Thank you so much

    It has been a difficult year. A devastating Hurricane Dorian in September 2019 that left our island mourning the lost of love ones, rebuilding and restoring what was swept away in the highest storm surge ever recorded – and now COVID 19.

    Arise, eat, and rest. Thank You, Father God.
