Embrace the Bends of Change, for they will Accelerate your Ride!

The Lord is saying, ‘I am building My House in the nations at this time of the shaking. My Holy Remnant amongst the nations is rising as strong, tall oak trees that will not be shaken in this shaking. Look up to Heaven from whence your help comes… it comes from the Lord your God who made the heavens and the earth.

Be not discouraged or dismayed at this time of shaking in the midst of many unknowns, but recognise that you are a peculiar people with a different heritage, mandate, inheritance, responsibility, and authority. Look up and come higher! Keep climbing up the stairs to Heaven, come into My Presence and descend again, releasing what I am imparting to you. For this is your greatest hour of release and running. It is going to be so fruitful and so exhilarating, My beloved.’

The Lord has been showing me a picture of the Holy Remnant being in a toboggan, and I clearly hear Him say, ‘Lean into the bends! I’m doing a new thing, you do not know and understand every part of this ride, but I am with you, and I will teach you how to ride intuitively, lead by My Spirit, as you lean into the bends. I will teach you how to go fast, slow, and enjoy the ride to the fullest… but you have to trust Me, hear Me, and let Me lead the way. I am doing a new thing and have many surprises that await you. All that I have revealed to you, is ‘yes’ and ‘Amen’, but the way that the outworking will be, will be different to your expectation.’

This journey is one of faith, trust and complete reliance on the Lord. The Lord is about to surprise us with an outpouring of His Joy and Kindness! For His Remnant have come through a storm, but He is bringing His Reward. He is saying, ‘This is your time of reward. I am going to do things better and bigger, higher and deeper, than your greatest expectation. For I am taking you on a journey that will take you further than you thought of going, and its bends will be filled with new direction and new instruction that will cause your ride to be more aligned and more defined as you go. From glory to glory, strength to strength, revelation to revelation, wisdom to wisdom, and maturity to maturity… the bends are a key strategy to accelerate the work of My Spirit inside of you, so that you will be able to build faster and stronger than before.

When you build one way, and suddenly an unexpected turn appears, embrace it, and see it as part of your journey forward. Remain expectant and prayerful, so that My Spirit can unveil its purpose and give you understanding, for I am building My House by My Spirit, My Might, and My Power. Toilsome labour will not build and establish My House, but wholehearted, humble obedience and trust will.

Haggai 2:4-9, 19-23

But now be strong, O Zerubbabel,
declares the LORD.
Be strong, O Joshua son of Jehozadak,
the high priest.
And be strong, all you people of the land,
declares the LORD.
Work! For I am with you,
declares the LORD of Hosts.
5This is the promise I made to you
when you came out of Egypt.
And My Spirit remains among you;
do not be afraid.”
6For this is what the LORD of Hosts says:
“Once more, in a little while,
I will shake the heavens and the earth,b
the sea and the dry land.
7I will shake all the nations,
and they will come with all their treasures,
and I will fill this house with glory,
says the LORD of Hosts.
8The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,
declares the LORD of Hosts.
9The latter glory of this house
will be greater than the former,
says the LORD of Hosts.

19Is the seed yet in the barn? Indeed, the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have yielded nothing.
But from this day on I will bless you.”
20For the second time that day,

the twenty-fourth day of the month,
the word of the LORD came to Haggai, saying,
21“Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that
I am about to shake the heavens and the earth:
22I will overturn royal thrones
and destroy the power
of the kingdoms of the nations.
I will overturn chariots and their riders;
horses and their riders will fall,
each by the sword of his brother.
23On that day,
declares the LORD of Hosts,
I will take you, My servant,
Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,
declares the LORD,
and I will make you like My signet ring,
for I have chosen you,
declares the LORD of Hosts.”
And in this place I will provide peace,
declares the LORD of Hosts.”

Psalm 121

1I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
3He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
6The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 127

1Unless the LORD builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
2It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.

3Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the childrena of one’s youth.
5Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.b
