CITIZENSHIP – I woke up this morning with the word “citizenship” in my head. It was as if someone…Someone was yelling it at me. It was so clear and loud, I almost leaped out of bed and yelled it. Although, I laid there awake and still…waiting on the rest. Most of the time, I will jump out of bed and go write it down but this time, I laid still and waited.
As I laid there the Lord showed me everyone walking about the planet and no matter where they were, they had a floating flag above their head. There were some (flags) that glowed and some did not. I kept hearing the word “wanderers.” I immediately thought, “Ah, those who’s flags are not glowing are wanderers.” I felt a correction in that moment, and He began to point out how even those with a glowing flag, were wandering. Why was that?
The Lord then brought me to “adoption” and partnered it to citizenship. We are adopted (glowing) into the citizenship of Heaven.
“But [we are different because] our citizenship is in heaven. And from there we eagerly await [the coming of] the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself [not only] transform [but completely refashion] our earthly bodies so that they will be like His glorious resurrected body.”
~ Philippians 3:20-21
Each person was his or hers own nation or colony. We are all nations and there are some nations that have even been discovered and adopted but yet…are still wandering. There are “glowing” (adopted)…yet wandering nations.
‘ When you were few in number, of little account, and sojourners in it, wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people, he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!”‘
~ 1 Chronicles 16:19-22
This is your season of adoption. No more sojourning! In your season of discovering the lay of the land, He has protected you and kept you from harms way. He has allowed no one to take you down because in this season, He has prepared you to walk confidently in what He has called you to do! He has prepared you to walk confidently in who you are and Who’s you are.
“You keep trying to chart out your journey by comparing one map to another. This is uncharted territory, that was created specifically for you! It is time to stop wandering from nation to nation, because I have made each nation in it’s own light and I am your only Compass. The lay of the land within each colony is completely different, you cannot expect the same journey as another!
You have been a radiant, glowing nation!! Although often times not seen it or felt it. IT IS TIME! It is time for you to understand as I understand, see as I see, feel as I feel, speak as I speak…to LOVE as I love! It is time for you to “RISE UP, OH NATIONS!!!! As I have called you! You are My anointed ones, journey into my extravagant love and unmerited favor! I love you so!!!”
