This is something the Lord has been showing me over the past couple of years. I am in no way an expert on the subject of leadership; if anything, I have much to learn! This word is preaching to me as much as it preaches to you. June is a key month of being positioned for major acceleration, may we be found faithful in obeying!
My beloved ones, I am raising up a new breed of leaders across the face of the earth.
You’ve heard that the days of Superstar ministers are over, but I am taking it one step further. Indeed, this is the time for the nameless, faceless army of God to arise — and I am raising Generals in this army that look completely opposite from what the world think great leaders look like. I am raising up an army of servant leaders. People who serve in authenticity, brokenness, and humility.
The generals in My army will not be perfect, but they will have a childlike heart to hear Me & obey My voice even in weakness. They are marked by humility, vulnerability, and a broken offered-up life that will become a guiding post for all who look upon them. They will not serve out of their own strength or wisdom, but by walking in total dependance on My Holy Spirit.
I am looking across the earth for those whose hearts will completely belong to Me.
I am preparing those with hearts to serve. They will lead My people with the heart of a servant, and serve them with the heart of a king.
Not for glory, not for ambition, not even for spiritual conquests. No, I am searching for those who, like Jacob, would wrestle for an encounter that would leave them so dependent on Me. Like Jacob, they will be unable to walk without leaning on Me. And like Jacob, they will experience the heart-stopping goodness of God in their lives with grace to impart much to the next generation.
Even now, many of them are growing strong. But the world doesn’t know them yet. It has been a quiet work; deep heart work.
For such generals are as porcelain — they appear delicate/weak to the human eye, they have a transparency about them, but they possess a strength + tenacity that belies their appearance. This is because they’ve been forged in the deep fires and gone through the most intense flames. And they’ve emerged tested and proven, and proven faithful.
Many on the earth and in My church are hungry for My new breed of generals to lead them in the battle. Many need these generals to lead them into battle. And I am about to launch them very, very soon.
Keep watch and be ready. The time of suddenlies has come and is still coming in greater measure.
My new breed of servant leaders understand hiddenness & have chosen voluntary weakness so they’re sustained only by My grace. Because of this, they’re not afraid to be honest about their journey – even when it’s less than perfect – because they know that My people don’t need another lofty unattainable standard of spirituality, but rather they need forerunners who’ve gone before them, fallen down a few times, and persisted in running the race. That is what will encourage and inspire My people that they can do it too.
People like David the man after My own heart, Moses, Abraham, even My prophet Samuel. They all made mistakes, and I purposefully chose not to conceal those mistakes in My everlasting word. I wanted My children to have living stories, not blind guides, to lead them on the way. This is the very reason I sent My Son, so that mankind could learn from a Man what it means to be fully man as I designed in the Garden.
I am calling out for such men and women to arise in this generation.
Be strong and take courage, My generals-in-training. The heat has been painful and you’ve thought many times that you couldn’t bear any more. I am so proud of you for enduring. I see your heart of obedience to Me even in weakness, and I am moved by it. I keep account of every quiet sacrifice, every time you’ve chosen My kingdom over your comfort. I delight in you and I want you to know: You are storing up for yourselves everlasting treasures in heaven that nothing & no one can every take away from you.
Take heart, My children. Position yourselves. Let My Spirit prepare your heart, even when that means tearing down & rebuilding.
I am releasing My new breed of generals across the earth today, and I will not stop working until that day comes.
“Jesus replied: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.’” John 5 19 & 20
