Nate Johnston: "The Father Says, 'Well Done!'"

Nate Johnston, Colorado Springs, CO
Apr 18, 2024


I had an audible dream where Father God spoke to me in a heart-to-heart way. I woke up and wrote down what I remembered. I knew this was a letter to all of us, an encouragement for making it through a long season, and a "refocus" for the months to come. I pray this speaks directly to your heart and draws you into even deeper dialogue with Him this season.

Well Done for Enduring the Process

Firstly, I heard Him say, "Well done. Well done for enduring the process I have taken you through, even though, at times, it has felt [like] more than you could handle. Well done for allowing My purifying fire to come into every facet of your life. It was never meant to expose you but to remove every contaminate that would trip you up down the road. Well done; I am so proud of you! I have been on a mission to bring you out of the dark ages of your faith, where constant trials were sent to overwhelm you and steal your heart from Me, but they didn't succeed.

"I saw all the other affections, and I'm a jealous God; I saw all the other distractions looking for a way into your world. I saw all the arrows of the enemy wanting to pierce you in the back and steal you from Me, and I knew I needed to alter the course of your life to finally bring you into the fullness you kept asking Me for. Well done for clinging to Me, even when you doubted My methods. Well done for worshiping Me in the waiting.

Have You Forgotten What Hope Fulfilled Looks Like?

"My goodness has never left you. It has never waned even for a moment. I haven't left you or abandoned you. But I've seen you, at times, walking around defeated and lost—somehow convinced that hopelessness will always be a part of your life, believing that loss and settling for second best is the best life you can hope for. What happened? Have you forgotten what hope fulfilled looks like? Has it been so long? (Photo via Piqsels)

This month, I am going to pull you out of defeat and seat you at the table. I am going to cause every root of hopelessness to be outnumbered by new 'springs' of hope. I am going to remind you and restore to you what you have lost in the long road and process to where you are now, so you quit thinking that I don't live up to what I promise. I DO NOT LIE, and you are about to be reminded that My promises for you are 'yes' and 'amen.'

"I'm removing the tiredness from your heart, where you have felt that this was all on you. I am healing your heart from the toll that the warfare and opposition has had on you. I am taking away the slumber that has kept tempting you to sleep away the season, and I am giving you back your strength, and you will remember what it is to laugh and be genuinely happy and fulfilled. I will restore you and give you REST; so rest in Me, and watch what I do for you!"

Look What We Have Built Together!

Then I heard Him say, "Look what we have built together! Can you see it? Can you see the beauty through all of the mess you have had surrounding you? It's time to stop beating yourself up for how you have perceived you have navigated this difficult time, and begin to celebrate that you have made it through some of life's greatest obstacles and defeated the most intimidating giants. You have stood well. You have fought well. You have continued to hope, even despite not seeing immediate change—even when you only saw delay and discouragement crouched at your door. Now LOOK and see what we have built together!

"In the next month, you are going to see the fresh buds of life come from the most unexpected places, and fruit where you never realized it was producing for you. Seeds you had sown that died, dreams you once had, are NOW going to be resurrected but with interest!"

When I woke up from this dream, it was 4:20 AM, and I knew God was even speaking through this, as seen by Mark 4:20: "But what is sown on good soil represents those who open their hearts to receive the message and their lives bear good fruit—some yield a harvest of thirty, sixty, even a hundredfold!"

Take a Look Around, You Are Not Where You Were!

"In the shaking, you have become fully awakened. In the wilderness and greatest battle of your life, you have been anointed with My oil. Yes, that's right! I know it's not what you expected. It's not the 'destiny package' you were hoping for, but you haven't even seen the pages of your book yet to come. You have been stuck on the moment you are in and haven't measured this transition next to eternity, but let Me tell you, you haven't just survived; you have been revived! It may not look like it yet, but one day soon you will realize that this season of shaking was your set up, your preparation, your making! The enemy intended it to be your undoing, but it didn't work! Instead, it was your consecration, your knighting, your commissioning, and coronation.

"Now take a look around and see that you are not where you used to be. I have removed you from so many vices that once entangled you. I have loosed you from the places that kept you bound. Apathy and complacency are no longer suffocating the life out of you, and you are no longer in a place of limitation. Can you see the wide-open space before you? Prepare your heart for this.

This Year You'll Know Me as Provider and Supplier!

"Stop asking for the scraps from under the table," He said. "I want you to know My heart for you in this season regarding your finances and resources. You need to be fully and intimately acquainted with My goodness over your life, and know that I not only desire for you to be looked after, but I need you to grow in this area so I can grow you into the territory I have given you. You can't keep having a poverty mindset when I've called you to the land of milk and honey. (Photo via Pexels)

"There are nations that need to be discipled and cities that need to be reached, but if you keep not expecting Me to provide for the vision that I gave you, how will the Kingdom be released? This is a month that I am going to stretch you to believe beyond what you have before. I am calling you to ENLARGE and stretch out wider. Your vision has to get much bigger than it has been. I am breaking the survival mentality off the Church and healing the wounds from a lack of integrity and fear of failure. This will be a year where you will know Me as provider and supplier.

"So ask Me! What do you need? What does the destiny I have placed in you require? Dream with Me again. Go back to the drawing board and believe beyond where you have been, and don't stop until what you envision looks impossible. I am serving justice upon the assignments that have come to continually rob your bread and seed, and caused My people to retreat. No, you will now advance and plant, move out of lack and into more than enough!

Pioneer Again with Me

"It is time to finally move on from this place. It has served its purpose, but now the scenery must change, just like everything else has. You mustn't think your whole existence will be in the trenches. You are called to a war, but that doesn't mean you are meant to live in the valley of the shadow of death. No, I have been teaching you how to come up out of that place and live higher. I have been calling you up into new ways of viewing all that opposes you, so you aren't surrendering to the wrong thing. So now you are moving on from this place, and we are going on a brand-new adventure together.

"There will be many unknowns and many new roads we forge, but you will find your passion again and know I am running with you. It will keep requiring courage and letting go of doing things how you once did, but it will be full of so much joy. Yes, the pages of history are before us, and we are going to write them together. Will you join Me?"

"Yet I totally trust You to rescue me one more time, so that I can see once again how good You are while I'm still alive!" (Psalm 27:13)

"Surely Your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever." (Psalm 23:6)
