“I notice that at times you have a heavy heart. I also notice that because you are My minister, people consider your countenance to be a lack of faith. It is expected by some that you must always remain joyful and happy or there is something wrong with your walk. You must not allow their immaturity concerning My Word to bring you to a point of questioning what I am doing in you during these times. You, My ministers, are those whom I can trust.
"I often place My burden for others and for this world on you to hold them before Me. It is My work being accomplished. It is My birthing process. During these times, you will feel some of the burden that I feel. If you do not understand what is happening, you will have a tendency to compare yourself with those who are always happy and think that there is something wrong with you. That is not the case, so be encouraged. Sometimes the burden will come unexpectedly and surprise you. Do not be alarmed, and do not be confused. You are at work for My kingdom. Bring these unspoken burdens before Me, even if you have little idea of what they are. I know. I have given them to you. When My desire has been accomplished, the burden will be lifted.
"During the time that you are carrying it for Me, the weight of it might be very heavy. It is not your lack of faith in Me; it is My great faith in you. You are trustworthy. Release everything to Me and I will support you while you are at work. I am with you. I am proud of you. Be encouraged; I love to trust you.”
II Cor. 1:11 AMP
While you also cooperate by your prayers for us [helping and laboring together with us]. Thus [the lips of] many persons [turned toward God will eventually] give thanks on our behalf for the grace (the blessing of deliverance) granted us at the request of the many who have prayed.
Gal. 6:2-3 AMP
2) Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it].
3) For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.
Gal. 4:19 NIV
My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you...
This message isn’t for everyone in the church. It is for those of you who have felt the burden of God and had no idea what came over you. Until you understand that some of what you feel is God working with you for the sake of others, you will believe that there is something wrong with you. There will also be a myriad of others in the church who will be delighted to give their opinion confirming that. Don’t listen to them. They cannot see and they do not understand spiritual warfare.
Other than in the movies, have you ever seen someone at war of any kind giggling while they fought? Of course not! They were intense until the battle was over. There is a vast difference between walking in fear and walking in an acute awareness of the danger; but standing to overcome in the Lord’s strength.
If you constantly have no joy in the Lord, that is one thing. You need to get in the Word and understand who you are in Christ and what you have been promised because of what He has done for you. If, however, you understand your heritage, but find yourself weighty at times, you may be an intercessor in the service of the Lord at that very moment. That sudden feeling in your stomach might be the Lord wanting you to lift something up on His behalf. No one will understand. Do not try to explain it. Just go to work with a spirit of gratefulness and peace in your heart.
If you are a watchman, an intercessor, a prayer warrior, or in other services for the Lord, you are not to walk around prune-faced and morose as the Sadducees did to prove to others how spiritual they were. Walk in joy. In the same way, however, when in battle, don’t pretend that everything is perfect. Fight the fight. The world is getting darker. Those of you who see may be called upon often. It would be wise to avoid those who will not understand your situation during those times.
