In a time of prayer, I heard the Lord say the word "remarkable." I immediately got excited and told the Lord, "I like the sound of that, 'remarkable.' I then began to ask the Lord, "Is this a remarkable season? Is a remarkable event coming up? Or is it the next season or this or that?" Then the Lord started to reveal to me what He wanted the body of Christ to know. I heard the Lord say the word "remarkable," but He broke up the word into three different parts, "Re-mark-able."
Then the Lord started at the end and said, "I am able to re-mark people." There are people who the Lord has marked, but somewhere along the way, something went wrong. I feel some people have disqualified themselves because of different failures or circumstances. But my friends, God is able to re-mark you.
Even if you feel like you have lost your mark, you haven't! God is re-marking you. Many of you may feel as if the Lord is far away from you, but my friends, if God seems far away from you, He is not the one who moved. You may have pulled away from the Lord, but I feel so strongly that the Lord is re-marking you today.
In 2 Kings 9, a young prophet came and anointed Jehu. Jehu's men came around him and were asking him what had happened. Jehu replied that the young prophets could be a little bit wild and crazy. Jehu was trying to hide that he had been marked by God. But the people around Jehu could tell something had happened because the anointing oil was running down Jehu. He had been marked by God. When you are marked by God, everybody knows.
I feel that the Lord is releasing many powerful encounters with the Lord to remark many. When I talk with people who have backslidden, I always ask them about the encounters they have had with the Lord. So many times, they will tell me they have never truly encountered the Lord for themselves. When you have truly encountered the Lord, it marks you. You can never stray away from it.
For some people along the way, the schemes of the enemy have tried to pull you away and keep you from the heart of the Father. You may not feel like a child of God as you once did. You may not feel like you've been marked by God as you once did, but what the Lord is saying today, my friends, is that He is calling people back, and He is re-marking them so He can do something powerful through you. He is able to re-mark you and put His stamp of approval upon you. This is your day, and this is your season.
Many people feel insecure and are walking in fear. They do not believe they can step into all that God is calling them to. But I am telling you, just like the prodigal son as soon as he came back to the father, the father immediately re-marked his son with his approval and celebrated him. You don't ever have to feel like your past makes you a second-class citizen in the kingdom of God. There is only one type of citizen in the kingdom of God and that is beloved children of God. You are a child of God, and your Father has marked you and is re-marking you to do something very powerful through you.
My wife, Autumn Dawson, says all the time, "The whole world knows who you are, but sometimes you don't see who you are." It is time for the children of God to stop talking ourselves out of our dreams, out of our calling and start saying yes and allow the Lord to remark us for His kingdom and His glory.
