The Elijah List: Many in the Body of Christ are being called to “new things” this year and beyond. God is awakening us to new ideas, new ministries, new ventures and more. Kathi talks about mantles and pioneering, and how we may not feel qualified, and that it will be too much of a burden. But that is NOT what the Lord says!
Excerpt from The Elijah List:
Whatever the Lord has called you to do and wherever He has called you to go, He has already gone ahead of you to establish His Word and His will. Even if you have the call of a spiritual pioneer who is forging new paths and opening new territories, He has already gone ahead of you to make the way.
The enemy would have you think that the burden is on your shoulders, but the Lord says to remind you that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. You must only trust and obey. It is in your weakness that He will manifest His strength and establish His will. Like Paul, you can boast in your weakness, knowing that Christ will be made known, despite the limitations of human strength and wisdom.
The Lord wants you to know that He has gone before you and the mantle that He has placed, or will soon place, upon your shoulders is a light burden, and yet this mantle will cause you to have a heavy impact on all that you do as you follow His steps and instructions and heed the counsel of His wisdom.
