“A Word to Introverts: Come Out of Hiding!”
Wanda Alger, Winchester, VA
od is looking for some Gideons. It has long been prophesied that it’s time for some prophets to come out of the cave. Just as Elijah and David spent time in caves when being hunted by their accusers, so have some of God’s chosen ones sought refuge from the public eye. They have been hiding out because of fear. Just like Gideon, they have found comfort in the cave and doubt their ability to thrive in the light.
They are the introverted ones who have deemed themselves unready and unqualified in a field full of extroverted voices. They are the quiet hearts who love the secret place and have enjoyed the privacy and secrecy of the cave. And yet, they have thoughts that run deep and insights that bring life and purpose.

There is wisdom hidden within these introverted prophets, and now they are being called upon to COME OUT OF HIDING and be a light to the world. That which they have discovered while in the cave is the very wisdom and revelation needed in this hour for the Church to fully mature and fulfill her destiny.
Don’t Disqualify Yourself!
The Lord would say, “Don’t allow the fear of man to rob your purpose. Don’t allow the softness of your voice to discredit the strength of your message. Don’t allow your high standards and expectations of yourself to cripple your assignment. YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN!”
It’s time to put away negative self-talk and rise to the occasion. It’s time to embrace the voice you have and celebrate your unique contributions to the conversation. You are needed! Where extroverts and louder voices may speak first, the last voice can often bear the most weight. It’s time to leave your comfort zone and seize the adventure.
Though you will feel uncomfortable in the flesh, your spirit will lead you into a supernatural zone where the impossible will become possible. That which has felt stuck will now come into perfect alignment, and the momentum you’ve lacked will quickly accelerate as you yield to the Spirit’s call. (Photo via Unsplash)
To my fellow introverts on this prophetic journey – this is YOUR time. You have something to say and the Lord is calling your name. Don’t let hesitation stop you from stepping out and walking in that which you were born for. You were created with a voice. It’s time to use it.
