“The Lord Says: I Am Bringing Inner Turmoil to Rest”

Over the last few weeks, I have been hearing the Lord speaking about “inner turmoil” that is taking place in the hearts of many Believers right now. The Lord showed me that this “inner turmoil” has been stemming from many different things in the hearts of His people. Some are experiencing turmoil from pain, trauma, grief and disappointment. Others are facing turmoil because of circumstances they are finding themselves in. Still others are facing turmoil because of weariness and burnout. The list of areas of “inner turmoil” that the Lord showed me went on… The Lord was revealing that His focus is on ministering to those that are finding their hearts in a place of inner turmoil.
A Call to Go Deeper into the Secret Place
There is a call to go deeper into the secret place that these Believers are sensing and feeling, because the Lord is going to bring a rest, a deep rest, that they have not known before. The Lord spoke to me and said that as they lean in—as they lay themselves down before the Lord and allow the Holy Spirit to come and minister into those areas of turmoil within, as they partner with Him in the leading of His Spirit in dealing with this—they will move into a realm of supernatural peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:6-7).
The Lord showed me that in this place of encounter, He was also bringing them into a place of deeper understanding of what it is to trust in Him—of “casting cares” upon Him; a deeper place of prayer, a deeper place of surrender and allowing His Spirit to heal, restore, and put turmoil to rest.
The Lord showed me that many who were carrying this turmoil have been carrying it for a long time. They have lived with it, continually swirling within their hearts, for many, many years. They have learned to “live” with this constant feeling of “wrestle” and turmoil within them. Some of them are now beginning to see the inner turmoil manifesting in greater ways in their bodies, through physical ailments and physical symptoms; but take heart if that’s you, because the Lord is bringing healing to you!
“I Am Going to the Root”
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “I am going to the heart. I am going to the root. I am going to heal them from the inside, out. This is their year of wholeness, this is their year of healing, this is the year where they will step into a greater understanding and manifestation of what it is to live FULLY ALIVE in Me (John 10:10), and to not live with constant concern. They will walk in supernatural peace that I purchased for them at Calvary, and they will no longer be weighed down and marked by constant cares. I am decreeing that a major shift is taking place in their lives by the power of My Spirit, bringing that inner turmoil to rest and marking them with My peace.”
The level of turmoil that I saw many people carrying brought tears to my eyes. Even though they had smiles on their faces for all to see, they were carrying such a heavy weight, battling a level of inner torment and turmoil that no one else could see. But HE has seen. He is coming as the relentless pursuer to love them to life.
“I Am Loving Them Back to Life!”
I continued to hear these words surrounding me loudly: “I am LOVING THEM BACK TO LIFE! No more broken hearts.” When the Lord spoke those words, I saw the broken hearts all across the Body of Christ, and I saw the hidden, broken hearts—those that were carrying broken hearts which no one knew about. They would cry and battle alone behind closed doors. The sadness they carried was deep. But then, Jesus stepped in… I watched as He breathed upon their hearts and their deep mourning was healed and turned to great joy (Isaiah 61:3).
He whispered again to each one: “REST IN MY BREATH! REST IN MY RHEMA.”
He began to speak words of life over them. Each word was full of His love, hope, and piercing truth to shatter strongholds and ignite life. They had been weighed down; they had felt like shells of their former selves because this turmoil that had been eating away at them day by day. But as He spoke, with each word He spoke, they were breathing in His breath, His life, His rhema, and they were being loved back to life. They were coming back to life and into the deepest rest in Him and His rhema that they had ever experienced, rebuilding them from the inside out. The “great awakening” to their identity as a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17), and a son and daughter of the Most High, was being ignited in them like never before.
They Began to Remember Again…
As Jesus spoke, as He was loving them back to life, they began to remember again…they began to remember the dreams and all the promises laid down. They began to remember the joy of first love. They began to remember the joy of abundant life before the inner turmoil began to steal hope, peace, joy and life from within them. They began to enter the divine dance with the Beloved again in the steps of joy and deep peace.
Friend, today, if you are one struggling with deep inner turmoil, take heart, the Lord has seen the turmoil, the wrestle, the struggle, the pain that no one else has seen in its fullness—the tears you have cried—and He has not turned a blind eye or deaf ear. Jesus is here and He is drawing you deeper into the secret place, into His heart, to embrace you and bring you back to life, to love you into wholeness and healing.
Surrender into His arms and allow Him to work deeply on your heart. Allow His Spirit to minister to you. Partner with Him in your yielding. He is bringing that inner turmoil to rest; you will not know it any longer, but in your encounter with Jesus, you will be marked by peace, joy and hope. Where that inner turmoil used to be, LIFE will now reside, HEALING will reside. You will begin to BELIEVE again. You will begin to DREAM again. You will begin to HOPE again. You will not walk around carrying deep sadness within, but explode with joy in the abundant life that is yours in Christ.
