Last year while fellowshipping with the Lord, suddenly I had a vision. I recorded it at the time, and just came across it again last night. Today the Lord has instructed me to share this word to the weary. May it bless all who read it.
Excerpt from my journal entry of August 11, 2016:
I closed my eyes just now and I saw a whole herd of sheep, and I saw the Lord in the center with His staff in His right hand and holding a little sheep in His left hand close to His breast.
I don’t know what this means, but let me watch some more.
Now He is smiling and cuddling the little sheep in His arms, and the little sheep is smiling back at Him. The Lord is occasionally looking away to use His staff to prod some of the sheep forward, but never meanly, or with impatience, just pushing them to go along, but His true attention and His heart is clearly to get back to the loving looks between Him and the little lamb in His arms.
I ask: Who is that little lamb, Lord?
And I hear: It is those who have been forgotten by the herd. The herd moves along and some of My lambs would be run over if I didn’t lift them up. I am taking SPECIAL care of the little ones in My fold who are too often overlooked, whether because to the big and mighty they seem insignificant, or because they are wounded by the herd, and the wolves have sought to destroy them.
But though the whole flock of sheep may not see the lost little one in their midst, I see every single one who is lost, and I seek them out.
The “lost” sheep can even be in the midst of the fold, they are in your very midst, and they are forgotten…BUT NOT BY ME.
For I adore the weakest among you.
I am the ultimate Shepherd, and I RUN to cover, protect, and advocate for My weakest ones, and rebuke the devouring wolves who always look to attack the weakest among the fold.
But greater is He Who is in the LEAST of these, than he who is in the world.
I wish to encourage the weakest among you that your days are NOT going to end in misery, but I have a plan for your life; though you may not see the sun shining, I am in your midst, doing a work to bring you your heart’s desires, and to solve all your problems.
It is not unlike a tangled piece of string. With many knots. On your own you do not know where to begin to untangle the mess that is your life. But I know the first string to pull, the next string to pull, and I know not only exactly what to do, but exactly in what sequence to pull out every last knot in your life that has had you bound, to make every crooked way straight so that you are able to walk in a freedom yet unknown to your heart, and one which may even seem like a fantasy because your wounded heart says: “Too good to be true.”
But I say to those who doubt, to those who see only darkness and evil around them and who see no way out, I say:
Behold, a door opens before you. And when it opens you will know it is I. Because I open doors which no man can close. And I close doors which no man can open.
Therefore I say to the weakest lambs among you – REJOICE! Begin to rejoice now because your freedom and your deliverance is coming, one untangled knot at a time. And do not think it has to be a long work of redeeming and restoring the years that the locusts have eaten, for I say to you that in a single day a nation was created when Israel came into being. And can I not make your world new in a day?
Do not become so wearied that you lose sight of your Shepherd Who even now comes toward you, smiling, with so much love in His heart for you before He sweeps you up, and carries you laughing and smiling, and wiping away every tear, as He carries you into your anointed future.
Peace, My children. The weakest among you in this hour have My special ear and protection.
I will NOT let the enemy be victorious over you.
Be kind to one another, and simply rest in My love, and you will see it. Your promises will blossom before you. Just believe. I am doing it. And soon faith and hope will become sight. I bless you, My little ones.
Talk to me…
Has this word from the Lord ministered to you? Can you relate? Have you ever felt completely alone? And like no one understood? My prayer, in posting this word, is that all who come by will receive the joy and comfort Jesus intends, knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are not alone! And certainly not forgotten! Oh how He loves you, beloved! Receive this encouraging word. It is heaven’s headline to YOU.

and I am saved from my enemies.”

One thought on “A Word to the Weary”
What a great refreshing this Word brings to a weary place in me. Thank you, Lord.
