Keep Sowing Your Seed

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

The Lord is saying, “Keep sowing your seed! In the midst of dishonor, continue to sow honor; in the midst of lack, continue being generous. As it is written in My Word, ‘A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed’ (Proverbs 11:25).

“Beloved, there is absolutely nothing that escapes My notice. I see your tears, and I collect them in a bottle (Psalm 56:8). You are doing so much better than you realize. You are breaking up the hard ground, and your season of reaping is at hand! Yes, a mighty harvest is much closer than you think.

He will not crush the weakest reed
or put out a flickering candle.
Finally he will cause justice to be victorious.

Matthew 12:20

“I am well pleased with you, My child. Continue to fight a good fight and carry on, even when you feel as though you have nothing left to give. Surely I will give you beauty for ashes, and I will turn your mourning into joy (Isaiah 61:3). I am ever-close to you now; lean into Me and My goodness!”

Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.

Psalm 126:6

I See You!

“She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: ‘You are the God who sees me,’ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One who sees me.'”

Genesis 16:13

The Lord says, “I see you, Beloved! I see the very injustices that you have suffered even at the hands of others. Yet even through the heartache and tears, you have maintained your integrity by keeping your heart pure. Now, allow Me to take it from here.

“Though at times the pressure feels almost more than you can bare and you are tempted to rise up and defend yourself, resist the urge; know that I will bring the vindication as you continue to trust Me and be faithful to walk forward on the path that I have called you to.

“Continue to let your light shine, knowing that as you do good unto others you are also giving to Me (proverbs 19:17). Though you feel weary and at times even long to give up, continue to trust Me. You are not only making a difference in this generation but for future generations to come. Even as I was with Hagar during her moments of suffering, so I am with you also. Trust I am the God who sees. Know that you are about to enter into a season of great reward (Galatians 6:9). Stay on the path I have placed you on and keep walking forward.”

“They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.”

Isaiah 61:4

I Am in Your Midst!

“‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’

Zechariah 2:5

The Lord says, “Beloved, I am mighty in your midst! I am a wall of fire around you, protecting you on every side. Though in the moment you feel surrounded, the reality is that are surrounded by Me! I am working everything together for your good, both the big and small things alike. I will be faithful to perfect all that concerns you (Psalm 138:8).

“Trust Me with everything, My Child, and be encouraged that regardless of how things appear in the natural, I am working behind the scenes in your life. I am lining up great things for you. Yes, even surprises! I delight in blessing you. Be encouraged, your tears will soon turn to great joy!”

“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.”

Psalm 126:5

“Just like the clay, continue to be soft and pliable in My hands. Do not fear, for I am in your midst!”

“God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.”

Psalm 46:5

Stay in the Secret Place

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2

“Stay in the secret place and keep pressing into Me. As it is written in My Word, ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled’ (Matthew 5:6). I know that you are feeling dry and weary, but even now, I am very near to you.

The word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

Deuteronomy 30:14

“Keep pressing into Me, Beloved; as you do, I will pour out the oil of gladness upon you. Truly I prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies and your cup overflows (Psalm 23:5). Know that your prayers are not in vain, but that they are powerful, effective, and avail much (James 5:16)

“Pour out your heart to Me, for I am near to you! The heaviness that your are feeling will lift; stay in the secret place with Me,” says the Lord.

I will stand at my watch
and station myself on the ramparts;
I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint.

Habakkuk 2:1

“New Territory and Rapid Acceleration!”

“Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.”

Joshua 1:3

The Lord is saying today, “In this season, I am increasing your territory and your influence. Just as it is written in My Word, ‘everywhere your foot treads, I have given you the land’ (Joshua 1:3).

“I am rapidly accelerating things in your life. You’ll see that what has taken some years to accomplish will seem like only moments for you. This is a time of forward movement and momentum. Beloved, do not shrink back! Walk forward boldly in My strength and confidence, for it’s not by your own might or power, but by My Spirit dwelling in you (Zechariah 4:6).

“Though I am leading you in a way that you have not previously known, I will not fail you, My Bride. Fear not the changes ahead, but instead hold tight to the truth that I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). I will continue to be your fire by night and your cloud by day (Exodus 13:21). Put no confidence in your own flesh, but rather continue to trust and lean into Me completely. There is blessing in your obedience. Rise up and walk forward with boldness, for I am I am your exceedingly great reward.”

“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”

I Am For You

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31

The Lord is saying, “Beloved, I am for you! I see your areas of struggle and weakness, yet when I look at you, I view you through the finished work of the cross. I say that you are altogether lovely, My darling, and there is no flaw in you (Song of Songs 4:7). I know you more intimately than anyone, yet I love you the most. My love for you is perfect and untainted.

“…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,  and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:17-19

“I see just how far you’ve come on this journey. For though man looks at the outward appearance, I look at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). I see your desire to do good and to please Me. I am very near to you, Beloved. My Word is in your mouth and in your heart (Romans 10:8). I am closer than the very air you breathe.

“This is what the Lord says:

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:23-24

“I am, and always will be, your ever-present help in times of trouble. You will come to know that your biggest asset is living in intimacy with Me. I am pleased with you, and My love for you is unchanging and everlasting. Keep clinging tightly to My hand; I will be faithful to lead and guide you along the way. My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Stay close to Me, for I am with you!”

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43:2

Follow My Still Small Voice!

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

Isaiah 30:21

“Beloved, follow My still small voice! Do not be concerned about what others may say or think about you, rather be obedient to Me. Make it a priority above all else to hear and obey My voice; I always have your best interest in mind. You are protected when you stay under My wing.

“As written in My Word, the fear of man is a snare, but those who trust in Me are kept safe (Proverbs 29:25). Everything that can be shaken is being shaken right now, so be anchored and do not be swayed by the wind and the waves.

“See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, ‘Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.’ The words ‘once more’ indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

Hebrews 12:25-27

“In this season I am pruning away certain things in your life; allow Me to do the work and simply abide in Me. To whom much is given, much will be required.

“But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”

Luke 12:48 

“Not everyone will understand the unique path that I have placed you on. In fact, some will falsely accuse you and speak out against you. Refuse to take offense and keep walking forward with your hand to the plow. Your reward will be great both now and in eternity.

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.”

Matthew 19:29

“I am with you and I am for you. Find your sole security and identity in Me alone! Continue to stay in the secret place and follow my still small voice.”

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.

Isaiah 41:10-12

Stay Aligned!

“Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Psalm 46:7-8

The Lord says, “Stay aligned and do not abandon your post (Habakkuk 2:1). Beloved, this is the time to consecrate yourself to Me like never before, staying in a place of prayer and intercession. Make sure that your words and thoughts are aligning with My truth and all that I have spoken.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.”

Psalm 19:14

“Nothing is taking Me by surprise. I am in control! As written in My Word, ‘The One who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them’ (Psalms 2:4 NLT).

“I am calling forth My Bride to partner with Me through prayer and intercession. Open your mouth and call out things not as though they are. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, so speak life (Proverbs 18:24)!

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.”

Job 22:28 NAS

“Arise, My Love, and awake from your slumber. Wield your sword and keep watch through the season of darkness. It has been declared, ‘If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and heal their land’ (2 Chronicles 7:14).

“Refuse to listen to negative reports or give in to doubt; rather, have the vision of Joshua and Caleb. Truly, there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16).

“The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to withstand you.'”

Joshua 10:8

“I am working behind the scenes, regardless of how things may appear in the natural. Rise up and stay aligned! Remember, do not abandon your posts,” says the Lord!

“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.”

Proverbs 21:31

I Will Steady You!

“Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.”

Psalm 107:28-29

The Lord says, “My child, when you feel the wind and the waves crashing against you, simply cry out to Me and I will steady you! As written in My word, the righteous cry out to Me and hear them; I deliver them from all their troubles (Psalms 34:17). Even if you have gotten off course, simply call to Me and I will put you back on the right path.

“For I resist the proud but give much grace to the humble.”

Proverbs 3:34

“Truly, My mercies and compassion are new every morning. Great is My faithfulness to you (Lamentations 3:23)! Do not waste another moment of regret worrying about past failures, simply receive My fresh grace for today and walk forward.

“For though a righteous man falls seven times, he shall rise!”

Proverbs 24:16

“I am with you and I am for you! Nothing can ever separate you from My perfect love.”

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:35-38

It’s a New Day!

“But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.”

Malachi 4:2

The Lord says, “It’s a new day! I’m wiping away the pain of your former season. I’m bringing you out of captivity and into a large place of freedom!

“He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.”

Psalm 18:19

“Truly, I’m making all things new for you (Isaiah 43:18-19). Beloved, even amidst the great shaking and political unrest that is currently taking place, I am doing something new, and it is a good work! I will take what looks to be the worst of times and make it into the best of times. Did I not cause Joseph to prosper when those around him were experiencing famine and drought? I will do the same for you.

“The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.”

Genesis 39:2-4

“No longer rehearse the hurts and disappointments of the past, rather allow My newness to wash over you like sweet, refreshing rain.

“You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.”

Psalm 68:9

“Let hope and songs of praise arise! Expect to see My very best in every area of your life. This is your turn around season; the best is yet to come! The enemy of your soul has been working overtime to bring anxiety regarding your future, but it is all a lie! As written in My Word, I know the plans I have for you; they are not to harm you, but rather to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

“Truly, you will testify of My goodness and faithfulness in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13)! Rejoice, it’s a new day!”

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.”

Isaiah 58:8

I Have Rescued You

My true hero comes to my rescue, for the Lord alone is my Savior. What a feast of favor and bliss He gives His people! Pause in His Presence.

Psalm 3:8 (TPT)

The Lord says, “My Bride, do not forget all that I’ve rescued you from. I, alone, am the One who has drawn you out of the deep waters and placed you on a firm foundation (Psalm 18:16). I am your true Hero, your ever-present help in times of need. I am your constant through both the good and the bad; I am the Friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).

“Even in the seemingly mundane seasons of your life, encourage yourself in Me, even as David did. Remember how far you’ve come and all that I’ve delivered you out of. Draw on My faithfulness and the very testimonies of My goodness throughout your life! Be encouraged and know that faithful I have always been, and faithful I’ll continue to be. I love you with an everlasting love, for I have rescued you!”

He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
He drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.

Psalm 18:16-19

A Season of Victory and Recovery

“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.”

Proverbs 21:31

The Lord says, “This is your season of victory and recovery! I’m restoring all that the enemy has robbed you of; nothing missing, nothing broken. I will recover all you have lost and more!

“Yet if he is caught, he must pay seven fold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.”

Proverbs 6:31

“Do not look to the former, for I am doing a new thing. Do you not perceive it (Isaiah 43:19)? Beloved, this is a time of divine acceleration. It’s a time to celebrate! I’m not just restoring one area of your life, rather I will breakthrough in all areas where you have experienced loss. I’m renewing health, finances, and even relationships. Truly nothing is beyond My repair.

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm— my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.”

Joel 2:25

“Do not lose hope; I am honoring your faith and your fervent prayers. You have stood strong. You have declared My Word even when you saw no visible sign of breakthrough in the natural realm. Know that your very tears have been fertilizing the seeds that you have sown through intercession. I have been doing a deep and hidden work under the surface, and soon it shall spring forth. You shall see it and you shall know it.

“Praise Me in advance, and be encouraged that this is your season of victory and recovery!”

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”

Psalm 126:1-6

Abide

The Lord says, “Continue to abide in Me. I will be your safe place when everything around you is constantly changing. Be encouraged. for I am the God that is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

Allow Me to be your anchor, for apart from me you can do nothing, but with Me you and do all things (John 15:5). My Bride, I’m calling you to abide in Me like never before. I alone am your very source of life, and through Me all things are being held together (Colossians 1:17). Even when everything around you is shaking, I will remain steadfast.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.”

Psalm 46:1-5

“Even as Mary Magdalene did, choose to sit My feet; continue to rest in My presence and pour out your love upon Me. As you make Me the true delight of your heart, all of these other things will fall into place. Simply abide.”

“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Do Not Back Down!

“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it.”

Matthew 11:12

“Many are feeling intense warfare in this season. If you have been feeling heaviness, exhaustion, and attacks against your mind, know that there is an increase in supernatural activity this time of year. Even so, you are highly protected under My wings, and nothing will harm you.

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”

Luke 10:19

“The enemy is seeking to intimidate and silent many of the prophetic voices. However, do not back down, rather press into the resistance that you have been encountering. Greater am I on the inside of you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).

“Don’t succumb to fear, for My perfect love casts out all fear, and I have given you the mind of Christ (John 4:18). You are overcoming and advancing My Kingdom. Darkness is forced to retreat when you open your mouth and utter My words.

“Beloved, refuse to get weary in well doing. Do not concern yourself with the opinions of others; you may not feel celebrated here on this earth, but all of heaven rejoices, for you are a forerunner plowing a path for future generations. You are a generation changer! Do not back down!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…”

Hebrews 12:1

“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”

Isaiah 58:12

I’m Working for Your Good!

“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.”

Genesis 50:20

The Lord says, “My child, I see the injustices that you have experienced at the hands of others, and know this: what they intended for your harm, I will use it for your good (Genesis 50:20)! You have continued to praise Me in the midst of adversity, so take heart and know that I am arising. I will contend with those who have been warring against you, you only need to be still.

“But this is what the Lord says: ‘Yes, captives will be taken from warriors,
and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.'”

Isaiah 49:25

“Beloved, refuse to take matters into your own hands. Rather than seeking to defend yourself, continue to trust in Me.

“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength…”

Isaiah 30:15

“I have not been blind to the tears that you have cried nor have I been deaf to your prayers and petitions. I am moving on your behalf. If you ask for bread, I will never give you a stone (Matthew 7:9).

“I will give you double for all the heartache that you have endured. I am restoring honor to your name and removing the reproach. I’m correcting the wrongs and bringing justice to the areas where you have been falsely accused. Be assured that I’m working for your good!”

“‘Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. Because I, God, love fair dealing and hate thievery and crime, I’ll pay your wages on time and in full, and establish my eternal covenant with you.'”

Why Worry About the Future?

“And which of you by being worried can add a single hour to your life?”

Matthew 6:27

The Lord says, “My child, why worry about the future? As written in My Word, worry does not add a single hour to your life, nor benefit you in any other way. Put your trust and confidence in Me, for I am the God who will not fail you. I’m always at work on your behalf to do above and beyond all you could ever ask of Me.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”

Ephesians 3:20

“I’m calling you to cast your cares upon Me, for I care about every detail of your life. I will be faithful to perfect all that concerns you (Psalm 138:8). Be at peace and know that I am working! I’m fighting your battles. I’m bringing perfect peace to the chaos.

“Be still and know that I am God.”

Psalm 46:10

“Take every anxious thought into captivity through the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). Expect the best possible outcome in every situation and praise Me in advance for the glorious testimony I will bring. Remember that I am with you and I am for you, so there is no need to worry about the future.”

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Romans 8:31

Eyes of Love

“Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God”

1 John 3;21

“My child, even when your heart condemns you, know that I do not. When I look at you, I see the finished work of the cross. I look at you with eyes of love. Truly, My mercy triumphs over judgement.

“Because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”

James 2:13

“Even in your weakness, beloved, you have captivated Me with just one glance from your eye (Song of Solomon 4:9). Do not listen to the lies of the enemy that say you will never measure up or never be enough; He is the father of all lies and seeks to accuse you day and night (Revelation 12:10). Be assured that My blood covers you, and it always speaks a better word!

“To Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.”

Hebrews 12:24

“I see you in your full potential, and I believe the very best of you. Keep pressing onward, even during times when you fall short.

“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,
but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”

Proverbs 24:16

“I am always right beside you, beloved, for I am the friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). My love for you is perfect; it is not flawed like mans love. I always look at you through eyes of love.”

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”

Romans 8:35

Your Praise Will Shift the Atmosphere!

“I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies.”

Psalm 18:3

Many are feeling a sudden onslaught of heaviness and discouragement, yet even amidst this the Lord is saying, “Press through the resistance with your praise, and watch as the very atmosphere begins to shift!”

Many are on the verge of massive breakthrough and the enemy is fighting hard to keep you from receiving it. However, as written in the Word, you will overcome through the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11). Remember that praise is a powerful weapon of warfare.

In the heat of the battle, Jehoshaphat appointed the worshipers to march out ahead of the army and sing songs to the Lord (2 Chronicles 20:21). Your praise will confuse the enemy and send him to flight, so keep singing! Clarity is coming as you continue to press into the Lord.

The warfare you are experiencing now isn’t because of any wrongdoings; in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The Lord is using this to prepare you for a promotion!

Yesterday in worship I saw an image of walls crumbling down in front of me, so be encouraged and press through! As you do, your praise will shift the atmosphere. The Lord is going before you and opening the gate.

“The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the LORD at their head.”

Micah 2:13

Guard Your Heart Against Offence!

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.”

Romans 13:8

Many are in line for promotion and the enemy is seeking to trap you in his web of offence. However, be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

I sense the Lord saying, “Guard your heart against offence! It is a trap sent by the evil one to cloud your vision and to hinder you from the advancement that is taking place.

“As written in My Word, we demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

“Bless those who curse you and pray for those who spitefully use you (Luke 6:28). Do not over think things nor be concerned about others opinion of you; this too, is a trap of the enemy meant to divert you off the path I am leading you on.”

“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”

Proverbs 29:25

It is imperative in this season to be solely focused. Do not be alarmed if your close circle of friends shifts or even shrinks. In this place of advancement, the Lord is realigning circumstances and even relationships, so be willing to lay down what he is calling you; know that you will find your tribe as you faithfully walk into the new. Trust the he will lead your steps!

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’”

Isaiah 30:21

Resist the urge to defend yourself against any slander or accusations that come against you. The Lord alone is your defense! As you continue to humble yourself under his mighty hand, you will be safe.

“In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.”

Psalm 31:20

The Lord resists the proud, but gives much grace to the humble (James 4:6). Saturate yourself in worship and in the Lord’s presence. Continue to abide in the secret place. The Lord is not blind to the battle that you are facing, for he alone is your protector. Remember, Guard your heart against offence!

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Exodus 14:14

Forward Momentum

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”

Psalm 32:8

The Lord says, “This month, and in the months to come, you will experience My forward momentum. Watch, as the wind of my spirit supernaturally propels you forward. This is your season to advance and take the land! I have been strategically at work in your life, even while you’ve been in a long season of hiding and preparation.

“I prepared David to become king while he was shepherding the fields. I prepared Joseph even while he was in prison. Beloved, nothing in your life has been wasted. Truly, I have been with you working through it all.

“Continue to seek Me in all things, and do not fear the rapid changes that are upon you. As written in My Word, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go (Psalm 32:8).

“Be bold and courageous, and be willing to leave behind that which is familiar. I am leading you in a way that you have not previously been. Surely, I will be with you. Be encouraged that you have been chosen for such a time as this!

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

Ester 4:14

“Keep your eyes on Me and do not worry about what others think of you. As written, fear of man will prove to be a snare (Proverbs 29:25). Keep walking forward boldly and in My confidence, and I will not fail you! Be assured that you are highly favored and chosen of Me.

“Many will not be able to go with you where I am taking you. Even so, Bless them and continue to walk forward without looking back. I am bringing you into a greater place of freedom. You will no longer be concerned with the opinions of others, rather you will find delight in pleasing Me. I am causing your roots to grow deep, beloved. You will stand tall, anchored in Me, and even during the winds of adversity you will not be blown over.

“They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:8

“Get ready for my forward momentum in your life. It’s your time and it’s your season declares the Lord!”

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now. 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 Israel: They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them. God, your God, says so.”

Amos 9:13-15

I Inhabit the Praises of My People

“Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the one Israel praises.”

Psalm 22:3

The Lord says, “I inhabit the praises of My people, and I will be exalted among the nations (Psalm 46:10). My goodness and light will prevail amidst the gross darkness. Surely, the darkness will not overcome (John 1:5).

“My bride, worship Me with your whole heart and do not hold back. Give Me the praises that are due to My name, for I will have no other gods before Me. I will be exalted among the nations. Truly, I am blessed when My people sing My praise!”

“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.'”

Psalm 46:10

I’m Working Out All The Details!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

The Lord says, “My child, I am working out all the details to those situations that are troubling your heart. Just because you don’t yet see the way, does not mean that I’m not making one for you. I am the one who brings the dead things back to life. I make streams to flow in the desert places.

“I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.

Isaiah 41:18

“Refuse to waste another moment worrying about those things that you cannot change nor control, rather look to Me. Wait patiently and expect a good outcome. I am always working on your behalf. My heart is do exceedingly more than you could ever ask (Ephesians 3:20).

“Your future is not bleak like the enemy has been trying to make you believe; in fact, it is exactly the opposite. Great and mighty things are on the horizon, so anticipate a glorious outcome! I am going before you, making the crooked paths straight. Enter into My rest and trust in Me. I’m working out all of the details!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

The Potter’s Wheel

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”

Isaiah 64:8

Allow My fire to refine you, for I am purifying you even as the gold. I’m burning off the dross. I am removing everything that is not of Me. Don’t resist the work I’m doing within you, because I am molding you in My hands just like clay. The clay does not question the potter, rather it simply allows the potter to form it into the vessel of honor that he desires it to be. That is what I am doing with you, My child. Though the potter’s wheel may be an uncomfortable place to be, there is glory on the other side. Allow Me to have My way. Allow me to mold you into a beautiful vessel that will bring Me honor.

“And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible,
like gold refined seven times.”

Psalms 12:6

I’m Enlarging Your Tent!

“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.

Isaiah 54:2

Many are feeling stretched and overwhelmed at the transition that is taking place. Do not be discouraged, rather rejoice that you will soon spread out to the right and to the left (Isaiah 54:3).

Though the process is uncomfortable, embrace it and continue to move forward in faith and obedience. The Lord will lead your steps; He is your fire by night and your cloud by day (Exodus 13:21).

Do not allow the enemy to confuse you. You are not going backwards. Even in the chaos, you are moving forward and taking much ground! The Lord is enlarging your tent!

I’m Holding You!

“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 41:3

The Lord says, “Beloved, I am holding you by the right hand and My grip is secure upon your life. Nothing, and again I say nothing, can ever pluck you from My grasp (John 10:28). Fear not, neither be dismayed; I am holding you!
