“I never called you to fit.”
By Nate Johnston
“I hear the Lord saying “Its time to get out of the confines of the place you have been in. The role, parameters, and expectations you and others have set that just hasn’t worked or produced fruit for you. It’s time to accept the path I have for you which lies outside of what has been done and what is deemed proper and acceptable by man and finally surrender to the calling I have placed within you”
“I have put embers in your heart, fiery embers of a movement that only exists outside of the prison of perfection and the cage of logic because you are my battering ram, my breaker, my catalyst, my pioneer. You have tried to fit within the box, within the old paradigm but i never called you to fit. I called you to model and release the new, to live beyond what is and to establish what will be”
“The moment you stop compromising to be accepted you will realise you already are. The moment you stop trying so desperately to be affirmed and loved and to find your tribe you’ll find it and you will begin to tap into the kingdom you belong to and pour out the rich resource I have made you a carrier of. Yes you will offend the norm but you will also be the answer and remedy to the cries of the hungry and longings of the fainting”
“You fear your convictions because you believe it means you have to be alone to carry them out but I haven’t called you to isolation but to rewrite the map, to mark the ground, set the tempo, and lead the way”
“Open the door today to that cave you have been hiding in and allow your heart to dream again, allow your unbridled passion and undignified adoration of me to erupt out of you again and lead you to the waters edge. In time you will look behind and see others following you into the deep waters of my Spirit, into the place where sons and daughters are revealed and my heart is known for all the world to see”
