A New Season

“Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you” (Joshua 1:3).

It’s a new day. You are coming to the end of this dry, weary season and entering into something new. I am rooting out the old and establishing the new inside of you. Chains of fear, anxiety, hopelessness, and lies are being broken off, as I am uprooting old and unhealthy thought patterns and habits.

I am healing the lens from which you view people, circumstances, and other situations in your life. You will begin to see things in a completely new light. I am making you whole in the areas that the enemy has contorted your vision with his lies and deception. Truly I tell you, I am making you free. “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).

“I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten” (Joel 2:25). Where the enemy has attempted to keep you confined and closed in, I will instead bring you into a spacious place, because I delight in you (Psalm 18:19).

You will know My freedom like you never have before. Rejoice! Your best days are here! Taste and see that I, the Lord, am good (Psalm 34:8).

Prepare for a Divine Turnaround

“My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, and in undisturbed places of rest” (Isaiah 32:18).

Take every lie and fear that you’re battling right now and start declaring the exact opposite. The enemy is trying to get you off track and unfocused. What he wants you to believe right now is the opposite of the truths that I have spoken over your life.

No matter what you are feeling right now, My truths still stand firm:

  • You will breakthrough.
  • I am working on your behalf, even now.
  • These circumstances will change.
  • You will recover from what was once lost.

You are experiencing such resistance right now because, surely, your deliverance is coming quickly! The enemy is threatened by your faith and perseverance. Don’t faint; don’t get weary in well doing! You are about to experience a divine turnaround.

I am giving you double for your trouble. Just watch what I will do!

What takes some a lifetime to accomplish, I can do for you and your family in a day. Like Boaz with Ruth, you have found favor in My eyes. Do not fear, nor let the enemy try to harass you. I give you permission to enter into My rest. Cease your striving. My peace I give to you; My peace is your portion. Let it encompass you completely.

Rest is a form of warfare. Enter into My rest, regardless of what your circumstances appear to be. Know that I am at work even now, lining up all things together for good. Let Me take care of you, My precious child. Allow Me to bring you into that place of rest you have been crying out for. Where the enemy has attempted to keep you closed in, I will instead bring you to a spacious place, because I delight in you (Psalm 18:19).

I am bringing order to all of the chaos, making a way for you even now. Take your hands off of the things you want to control and hold on to. Trust in the goodness of your Father. Nothing, by any means, will harm you (Psalm 91).

Soon, and very soon, things will begin to bloom. It won’t be long now, dear one. Prepare to be amazed at My faithfulness and goodness in your life. “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no human mind has conceived the things I have prepared for those who love Me” (1 Corinthians 2:9, Isaiah 64:4).

Preserved in the Fire

I have preserved you as you have walked through the fire, and I am preserving you now. I tell you, nothing has been lost. In fact, during this time you are gaining strength, faith, and a greater tenacity than you have ever had before. The enemy thought he had defeated you, but you are indeed coming forth, as you’re being tried by the fire. You are being refined like gold, becoming stronger and shining brighter; this is magnifying My faithfulness that stands firm even throughout the trials and testing. I will use for good what the enemy has sought to use to destroy you. Truly a testimony of My goodness is coming forth from the flame!

Even in the chaos and what seems to be disorder, I am working out My purposes. Order will come as you let go and begin to relax. Enter into My rest. Trust in My ways and My timing, as I make all things beautiful in My perfect time.

My ways are not your ways, and my thoughts are higher than any earthly thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). Know that I am at work even now, and I am working all things in your life together for good. It may not look like what you had expected, but My plans and My ways are always best. I am the God who does exceedingly more than what you could ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Trust in Me.

“This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’

“They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water. I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up.

“See, they will come from afar– some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan.” Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones” (Isaiah 49:8-13).
