He will set you on high places
Ezekiel 34:26 -
And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
People who are called by the Lord may at times see that things are not happening and may even see the opposite results. Instead of drawing people they may be causing people to flee from them all because they speak the truth, what the Lord has instructed them to.
Understand Jeremiah was among the many Prophets around his time and he was used by the Lord to do things which not only the people hated but also he himself did. He saw the Lord used him more to shuffle the nest of the people. He saw his words would cause problems and not bring peace in the lives of the people. At times he cried and even thought of giving up, but as he said the fire in his bones (anointing in his nature) did not allow him.
People may come to you and give you worldly solutions to minister to the Church, the people of God by spiritually sobering / toning down /compromising the truth, but then do not influence you. If the Lord has put in your heart do as the Lord leads (be sure of it and do not mistake the flesh/worldly desires for the Spirit).
Today's message the Lord is telling such people the Lord will make them to be a blessing for His struggling Church that does not know Him (the word hill is used here, normally used for a place where people worshipped unknown gods). But this will not happen today or not even tomorrow. The Lord says at the perfect time He will cause a shower of blessings to fall.
In the preceding scriptures the most incredible words the Lord uses that they will be in the league of the likes of David and also affirms that no evil will come against them or harm them or dwell around them. Later the Lord states that their efforts will bear fruit and mankind (not just people around them but generations to come) will yield an increase because of them. God says they will know He is a God who delivers.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You are God and at times You give some people a mission that seems to be impossible. But You God are all knowing and all seeing, You do not err. If You have assigned a task You also make all provisions to do it, You strengthen the bones of the person to fulfil it. Lord, help them to be patient and trust in You and await the season...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
