This was the very FIRST prophetic-poetic piece from God’s heart that I wrote. I heard God’s Spirit so clearly wanting to encourage me at the five-year mark of a nine-year-long Job type season.
At first, I was shocked and didn’t know how to respond. He kept saying the phrase “those sifted will now be shifted” …over and over and over…until it registered that I should write it down.
I really wasn’t used to hearing God in this way, even as a seasoned prayer warrior. I was simply so dry and broken.
If you have been through a sifting time, I pray this will encourage you as it did me…I call this:
Glory and Grace
Those sifted will now be shifted into greater realms of glory…bringing their story of glory and grace to a dry and thirsty land
To those who’ve exposed their hearts to their God, they know He loves them so
They will be regarded ..no longer discarded ..they are being refreshed by His hand
He will call ones out of a slumber .. to a place called glory and grace
Who long to shine with the glory divine ..bringing life to their dry desert land
They will eat from the tree that brings life ..by the river pure and clear
They live from that place called glory and grace ..always drawing others near
So be encouraged, if you have been sifted ..it’s been from a place of grace
Calling you higher by a God who loves fire ..to burn off the dross in your land
Take a FRESH look now ..there’s GOLD in this place.. what once held pain ..now holds all the GAIN
GOLD you NOW SEE in your land!
