I don’t usually do this…but today I have received this word from the Lord and felt to share it.
Here is is:
They’re running ahead of Me, like Esau, to make their cities, their kingdoms, their names.
They want greatness, they want glory.
But I desire a man after my own heart who will slow down and walk with those who struggle to walk, those who can’t keep up.
A man whose hip has been touched.
These have no power in themselves , they are the weak and foolish of this world.
I see them. I see them.
I have not forgotten them. I am the LORD of the weak, the foolish, the nothings. In weakness I was lifted up, now I call all men unto Me.
They are my treasured possessions. My glory shall be seen in them.
They are not intellectual
They are spiritual
Think of …(name of a Christian with schizophrenia)
Think of …(name of a Christian who struggles with alcohol)
Think of …(name of a child who has turned to Christ)
These are precious to me. Oh so precious. The world has no idea how precious.
The church for the most part has absorbed the thinking of the world. The church runs to glory and greatness.
But they miss My greatness in the weak.
Their eyes are blind to them.
They want crowds. I want one.
They want money. I want My treasure I died for.
The broken, the lame, the marred, the nothings, the foolish, the weak: these are My glory, these are My precious stones.
“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it”
