Recently, I received this word that I sense refers to those who are elders in the Body of Christ. These individuals are either “gray-haired” or they are like the prophet Samuel, who have been consecrated to the Lord since they were youths. These individuals have walked with the Lord for many years and spiritual miles. Therefore, they have accumulated a “weight” or “glory” (kabad) from their time with God.
Strong’s H3513 כָּבַד kâbad, kaw-bad’; or כָּבֵד kâbêd “be weighty, be honorable, be glorious, be burdensome, be honored, enjoy honor, be made abundant, glorify.”
You are My treasure, My secret delight hidden in plain sight. You have borne long with Me and followed Me wherever I called you to go. And oh, we’ve had some adventures, haven’t we, My friend? Up, down, all around, you have gone the distance with Me and weathered many a storm. Like a turtle who has carried its home with him, so you have faithfully carried My Word. And when the harshness and heat of wilderness seasons became too severe, you learned to seek the shelter of My Word as your hiding place.
