Last night I had a dream in which I was being "prayed" for to remove the "shame" of being introverted. As soon as I woke up I knew this was not from God, so I asked Him to redeem this nightmare, and this is what He said:
"This dream is an attempt to shut you down, to shut down and quiet down introverted people. For there is no shame in being introverted, but rather there is power in who I made you. The personality you carry is a shape and form of who Jesus was and is. Even He knew how to drawback to solitude to recharge his spirit (Matt 14:23). I made introverted people in my image and likeness because it is them who I use to cause people to see and hear the deeper meaning of all things created. It is them who I use to hear the sounds no one else hears, it is them I use to and cause to see the details no one else sees. It is them who get to see the details of my glory displayed in creation and other people."
So in this hour, we take authority in Jesus' name, and remove all shame and lies that have tried to weigh you down, to shut you up, to make you isolate because of who you are! You are made for intimacy with the Father, you were made to regain strength from who you are. There is no shame in needing solitude, there is no shame in regaining strength from it. There is no shame in quietness, there is no shame in seeing things differently!
As you read this, I pray that all distractions and temptation to change who you are just to be accepted is canceled and flees from you! I pray that you feel the Father's heart of FULL ACCEPTANCE of you. For you were made with glory, beauty, and brilliance!
"Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it." Psalm 139:14
