Some of you find yourself standing in a lonely place. You are in that place because you heard a word from the Lord and walked into its revelation. That act of obedience has moved you in a new direction, not of your choosing.
Previously, you followed the developing events of life, as many still do. It was easier then because you moved with a group where you experienced support and consensus. Now you seem to stand alone. You see the movement of culture and the transitions taking place in the Church from a prophesied future. It seems odd and frankly, a bit uncomfortable.
The events that will take place to confirm what the Lord has revealed will bring clarity and answer some of your “why” questions. God is at work in the lives of those making their way to the revelation you carry. Give this process time to develop. The Lord is working on the hearts of people and adjusting their worldview.
You have been called to this lonely place to make announcements of hope as the culture and the Church move into a new and yet to be explored future. Hope will be the only safe pathway to lead people to that future where they will arrive, having experienced transformation and reformation.
Words polluted by fear, angst, and despair will not lead people into the future God has planned. He has entrusted you with a message of hope that people will need to hear as they move through the unfamiliar terrain of change and transition.
You were never alone. The Lord has been standing with you and speaking through you. Take heart. Your lonely place will soon be populated.
