I saw God’s hands turning people North, South, East and West. Some continued the same direction but were pulled further along or even positioned higher. There were some who were stuck in pits but hands were reaching in to pull them out.
This is what I sense the Lord is saying:
Directional shifts are coming upon God’s people. Where some have been headed one way, you will be turned and sent into another.
For some there will be people placed to walk beside you, some you never would’ve expected.
Some of you are already on course and the way before you is being prepared. God is going to accelerate you. Others are being brought up to a higher place.
There are those who have been stuck in a pit. God is sending help to pull you out.
You will not remain as you have no matter what direction you’ve been heading or the place that you have found yourself. Fall in step with God’s timing. He is realigning the body so that your function will be optimal.
In a vision, I was walking down a cobblestone street. The scene resembled another place in time. The focus was on the path…the cobblestone. The scene changed and I was dipping my hand into water on the shoreline and as I lifted my hand and retrieved a golden coin with a bright shining star on the face…a brilliant star. “This is you”, the Lord tells me. “It can’t be Lord, I feel so dull in the presence of others”, but the Lord said, “I see differently. I see you as you will be. You are being shined up through every adversity and hardship you face and when you go through the fire, I am with you,” says the Lord. “Keep your eyes on me and trust me. I will lead you through and in turn you will lead many others through. Keep standing.”
This vision was for me but I know there are others who have or may still feel this way. At times, in life, we feel inadequate especially if we place ourselves next to a person who has an obvious brilliance to their life. I just want to encourage you to take it easy on yourself and do your best not to compare. We ALL have challenges and they are not all the same. These challenges can leave us feeling unqualified for what God calls us to in this journey. If our creator sees us as shiny and brilliant, we need to trust Him in the journey to fulfill his vision for us. He is the potter and he isn’t left doubting or feeling as though some vessels might be a mistake. On the contrary, he sees us as we will be. Our only action is to trust and surrender…allow him to use you. He will make a way. He is working all things out for our good, because we love him.
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. Philippians 2:14-16
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.” Isaiah 43:2
“I AM THE SHACKLE BREAKER”
I saw a mass of people running into an open green field. They had just escaped through once closed doors that had held them captive. The keys were already in hand for each lock, but there had been confusion, doubt, unbelief, hurt, discouragement, etc. so they remained captive, yet begging for freedom. Some had been in shackles held back by strongmen. When the captives stopped struggling and fighting in their own strength and turned their gaze to Jesus, the Shackle Breaker, the force that held them instantly dissipated and was no longer there to hold them. The people used their keys and unlocked the doors and ran into freedom. I saw them take shelter under his wings as chicks that run into the safety of a mother hen. There they found refuge.

For as many times as the enemy has come against you and pulled you from my plan, my will, I will in turn use that force to propel you that much faster, that much harder to impact that for which I have predestined. You will hit the target with greater force.
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Genesis 50:20
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
