From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:
Have you felt like a misfit among people...like you just don't fit in, no matter what you do?
This article from Lana Vawser will speak volumes to you, even the title itself: "You Were Never Born to Fit In – You Were Born to Stand Out!"
There is a belief system that says we need to walk and talk like everyone else...not so! God intricately made you YOU. Think about a snowflake among the masses of other snowflakes – NOT ONE is the same!
Lana gives us this incredible word:
I heard the Lord say, "These ones have been rejected, labeled as misfits – many of them for all their lives, and many of them for many years. And I am saying: You fit perfectly in My heart. You live deep in My heart, and I am now sending you forth with a compass of My heart to reveal and guide MY WAYS in this new era."
Did you hear that? "I am now sending you forth with a compass of My heart to reveal and guide MY WAYS in this new era." YOU, who think you are a misfit, will reveal and guide HIS WAYS in this new era.
Again, you were born to stand out...receive the rest of this incredible revelation from the Lord's heart to yours. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

I Am Bringing You Into Context Now
I heard the Lord speaking these words over many in the Body of Christ: "I am bringing you into context now and in this era."
The Lord began to show me that so many have felt like they haven't "fit," and many of them have even been labeled as "misfits." They have felt like square pegs in round holes and have continued to live their lives in a wrestle. They have been told to conform – to change – for what they carry is "too different" or doesn't fit a certain way, style or mold. So many of them have lived under condemnation, apologizing for who they are and what they carry. They have often retreated to caves to hide because they've continued to feel out of place and misplaced.
The Lord showed me many who have been labeled, in a negative sense, and it wounded them so deeply, but the Lord is saying to them, "I am removing the labels and I am raising you up in this hour to SHINE. I am raising you up and revealing the mark of My fire, My Spirit, My presence [and] My glory upon you in greater ways than ever before. I am bringing you into context now, and in this new era.
"You have been carrying My heart, My Word, My ways [and] the burdens and blueprints of My heart deeply; but many were not ready to receive what you carry, so you labeled yourself as wrong. You are not wrong. You are My child, deeply loved. You are created in My image. And as there have been attempts to squander, hinder and hide your creativity, and the true expression of who you are and who I have created you to be, I am now raising you up to SHINE My glory.
"You will go forth in this season and in this era with greater understanding – by My Spirit – of ALL that I have been preparing you for, all that I have been placing within you, all the words that you have carried, all the visions you have stored in your heart, [and] all the creativity of My heart within you that has often been rejected and squashed. I am raising you up with great favor to partner with Me, to release the NEW THINGS I am doing in this era through YOUR LIFE." (Photo via Piqsels)
Born to Stand Out: This Is Your Great Revealing
The Lord's voice then thundered loudly: "MY CHILD, YOU WERE NEVER BORN TO FIT IN; YOU WERE BORN TO STAND OUT."
I saw so many living under such deep condemnation from the struggle that they have been living in. There is a fierceness, there is an expression of His Spirit and His way that has burned so deep within them; but they have continued to apologize for it, or take it on as if they are in the wrong – but NO MORE. The Lord is bringing context; the Lord is bringing these ones INTO context FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!
I felt His heart so strongly for those of you who have been experiencing this. To you, I say: The Lord has seen your tears. The Lord has seen the years of pain. The Lord has seen the rejection. The Lord has seen the negative words spoken over you and who you are and what you carry. The Lord is healing you. The Lord is delivering you. The Lord is setting you free. The Lord is igniting you more and more with His fire, and increasing the fire within you, for this is your great revealing, where you shall reveal and shine His glory in ways you have never experienced before. You shall go forth carrying His fire that will activate, ignite and bring the fire of His presence and love in unprecedented ways.
The dreams you have carried, the convictions you have carried, the passions you have carried, the words you have carried, the encounters you have carried – ALL ARE FOR NOW – FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. Watch all that the Lord has spoken to you, imparted to you, placed within you, NOW come into context.
I heard the Lord say, "These ones have been rejected, labeled as misfits – many of them for all their lives, and many of them for many years. And I am saying: You fit perfectly in My heart. You live deep in My heart, and I am now sending you forth with a compass of My heart to reveal and guide MY WAYS in this new era.
"Many have spoken 'MISFIT' over you, but I am speaking 'MOVEMENT'! This is your time to MOVE, MOVE, MOVE in a fullness of the expression of My heart, My nature, My love, My creativity and My blueprint THROUGH YOU. You are birthing a movement with Me. Living under a word of 'misfit' - will be no longer; now you will live under the word of partnering with MY MOVEMENT.
Favor on Your Blueprints
"The blueprints and the visions I have given to you, that were spoken down upon, that were rejected, that were cast aside – NOW shall see the greatest flood of My favor, My provision, My confirmation, My presence and My glory...
"Well done, My faithful ones. You have held to what I spoke to you; now you shall see the most unprecedented move of My Spirit through the blueprints [and] through the visions I gave you. They are now coming into full bloom and fruition to bring transformation and a move of My Spirit; to reveal My glory and usher in the harvest like you have never seen before.
You Were Born to Break the Box!
"You were BORN TO BREAK THE BOX! You were BORN TO BREAK THE BOX! You have looked down upon yourself for the fire within you, but I placed the anointing upon you and the fire within you to BREAK [THE] BOXES that man's wisdom and expectation have created. You were not born to live in a box. You were born to BREAK THE BOXES through the expression of My heart, My love and My fire through you. You are coming forth! You are coming forth, My wild one, bridled no longer; free to run; free to soar! This is your time to arise and shine, and the King of glory is coming THROUGH YOU! Run, wild one, RUN!
"These ones will be part of leading the charge."
"So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you doorways of eternity! Welcome the King of Glory, for He is about to come through you. You ask, 'Who is this King of Glory?' Yahweh, armed and ready for battle, Yahweh, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you eternal doors! Here He comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in." (Psalm 24:7-9 TPT)
