A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed | Proverbs 11:25
I woke up this morning feeling the Lord’s heart of encouragement, especially for His prophets and intercessors. The King has taken note of you, and a season of increase and promotion is upon you!
To the Prophets of His heart:
You have continued to steward well and be obedient to release the words that the Lord has given you. As it says in Proverbs 11:25, “Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” The Lord, Himself, is refreshing you; He is honoring you for how you have continued to be faithful, even in the midst of your own personal pain and hardships.
Many of you have come under fire and persecution, but the Lord is vindicating you. Every tongue that rises up in judgment against you He will refute.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord (Isaiah 54:17).
The Lord is honoring you for how well you have served Him. Keep using your voice and release what He is giving you.
Some of you have been misunderstood, rejected, and spoken out against, yet you have continued to stay humble before the Lord. You have not sought to defend yourself, and like Jesus, you have make yourself of no reputation.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:5-7).
Prophets: your faithfulness to steward well, continuing to release the words of the Father even in the midst of the onslaught, has pleased the Lord. Know that the meekness that you have been walking in is not a form of weakness, but rather is just the opposite! Meekness is absolute power and strength under control. The Lord is promoting you now, as you have kept this posture of humility. For “He mocks proud mockers, but shows favor to the humble” (Proverbs 3:34).
This will truly be a season of increase and promotion. The favor of God that is getting ready to be released over your life will be evident for all to see. Like Joseph, you will soon be able to say, “What [the enemy] has meant for my harm, the Lord has used for good” (Genesis 50:20).
Many will find themselves going from the prison to the palace. Humility will be key in this season. I feel the Lord’s instruction to say, “When the promotion manifests, continue to stay in a place of humility. Steward well, and serve others with what the Father has given you. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required (Luke 12:48).”
“You have been tempered and fortified in the very fire that the enemy had sent to destroy you. Yes, you are being strengthened, and nothing has been wasted! You are being refined like the gold,” says the Lord.
Encouragement for the Intercessors:
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” (Galatians 6:9).
Intercessors: your prayers are making more of a difference than you even realize! The Lord is showing me that the prayer bowls in heaven are tipping; your prayers are like sweet incense, pouring out before His thrown (in reference to Revelation 5:8).
I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me (Habakkuk 2:1).
Continue to pray for the President and for those in authority over this nation. Stay at your prayer post, and know that there is much shifting happening in the spirit realm. You will suddenly see breakthrough as you continue to contend. As it is written, the prayer of a righteous person is effective and powerful (James 5:16).
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes (Proverbs 21:1).
Be encouraged! You have much favor in the Lord’s sight. Angels have been released and are on an assignment to strengthen and assist you to usher in the harvest. In the very areas where you have seen little to no movement in the past, you are about to see one amazing breakthrough after another! Indeed, the season has shifted!
“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people” (Amos 9:13-14; The MSG).
