I Am Your Safe Place and Your Strong Tower of Refuge!

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. | Psalm 5:11

The Lord says, “I am your safe place and your strong tower of refuge, even when storms are raging all around you. Fear not; though the mountains give way and fall into the heart of the sea, I will surely be your ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1-3). I am mighty to save and deliver you!

“My child, You are safe and secure with Me! No evil or calamity will befall you, for even as I’ve promised in My Word, ‘A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you’ (Psalm 91:7).

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance (Psalm 32:7).

“I am indeed watching over My Word to perform it in your life. Truly, I am surrounding you with songs of deliverance. I love you, and My delight is in you. Be encouraged, for no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper! I alone am your safe place.”

The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

Hope is Rising

Hope is rising!

The Lord is moving mightily in this hour. Truly His blood speaks a better word, despite what we see with our natural eyes and the negative reports we’re hearing around us. Now is the time to let hope arise; though darkness covers the earth, even gross darkness, His light shines brighter (Isaiah 60:2). Beloved, fear not! The Lord is rushing on the scene as the Mighty Warrior: the One who saves and delivers!

Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered (Psalm 68:1).

You Will Come out on Top!

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. | Psalms 91:7

I hear the Lord saying, “You will come out on top! You will be left standing, even in what appears to be a season of drought for many. I will use what seems to be the most unlikely time and season to launch you into your very destiny. As written in the book of Isaiah, ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts’ (Isaiah 55:9).

“I say, let hope arise; let confidence arise in who I am. I am the God Who caused water to gush forth from the rock and streams to flow in the barren places.

“The desert and the parched land will be glad. the wilderness will rejoice and blossom” (Isaiah 35:1).

“Watch now, as you experience My provision and increase like never before! Surely this will be your finest hour. My glory is arising on you, even now. My favor is arising on you, and you will be a beacon of hope to others.

“Expect to see My goodness and favor increase in your life in unprecedented ways, for I always take what the enemy means for harm and use it for good (Genesis 50:20). Watch, for amidst the very chaos and shaking, you will come out on top! Proverbs 10:30 even says, ‘The righteous will never be shaken.'”

Level Up!

Recently, during our church worship service, I heard the Lord say, “Level Up!” As I have continued to press into the Lord regarding this, I sense Him saying:

“In this hour, I am calling forth My Bride to arise from her slumber and level up! No longer will she blend in with the world, rather, this shall be her finest hour! I am awakening her out of her comfort zone. I am shaking things up! I’m breaking off fear and a spirit of complacency in this very hour! I’m giving My Bride a heart of compassion for a lost and broken world that is in desperate need of a Savior. As the darkness continues to grow darker, even the gross darkness, indeed, My light will shine forth all the brighter! Even as written in Proverbs 4:18, the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.

“Beloved, this is not a time to shrink back in fear, rather it’s a time to arise and shine. It’s a time to level up! Even where the world would say it’s a time of decrease and lack, I say that you will experience My increase like never before! I am the God who caused Joseph to prosper and flourish, even when others were experiencing a time of lack. Watch, as I do the same with you!

“My Bride, My storehouses are filled with abundance. I am the God who will cause you to thrive and prosper, regardless of the earthy economy. Continue to look to Me and you will lack nothing! I will even cause you to be a shade tree for others: a place where they may find lodging and refreshing under your branches (Ezekiel 17:23). You are My light, a city set apart on a hill! In the very near days to come, there will be increased opportunities to share and give reason for your hope and faith. Always be instant in season and out (2 Timothy 4:2).

“Beloved, be encouraged. I am indeed at work, and you were born for such a time as this! It’s time to boldly go fourth in My Name. As you do, signs and wonders will take place like you have not experienced before! It’s time to level up, even as I’m now launching you and propelling you fourth to your next level in Me! Arise shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you (Isaiah 60:1).”

My Fire Goes Before You

Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side. | Psalm 97:3

As I was on a prayer walk recently, I felt prompted by the Lord to release His fire to burn up all that has been standing in the way of breakthrough. Immediately Psalm 97:3 came to me, as it says, “Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.” I believe that the following word the Lord downloaded to my spirit is not only for myself, but for others as well:

“Beloved, be encouraged! When the enemy shall come in like a flood, I shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). Continue to strike the ground and speak My Word over your current situation. Begin to declare that My fire is going before you and burning up every trace of opposition that the enemy has tried to put in your path.”

Abstract fiery threads

Many have become so battle-weary because the fires of testing and opposition have seemingly been turned up seven times hotter than before. Even so, the Lord is now releasing His holy fire to burn off the dross and consume the works of the enemy. The very areas where the opposition has been the most fierce are the exact areas in which the Lord is bringing you the breakthrough!

I believe that many family relationships have been under attack. However, as you pray and release the Word of God over these relationships, He is going to cleanse and restore your bloodline. Even as it is written in Exodus 20:6, truly God shows love to a thousand generations of those who love Him. Begin to call forth those things in your life that are not as though they are (Romans 4:17); speak and prophesy over your loved ones, call forth and declare their destiny! Do not magnify the problem, rather thank God that He is working and bringing the solution. Truly, He is the Way-Maker!

I prophesy fresh strength over you in those areas where you have become weary. I speak forth fresh eyesight in the spirit and for new hope to spring up. Do not fear the enemy, for he is a defeated foe. Nothing by any means shall harm you. Take heart, for God is working, even now! He is your mighty Protector, a wall of fire around you!

And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the LORD, and I will be the glory in her midst (Zechariah 2:5).

Take Heart, My Grace Is Sufficient!

“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.” | Luke 12:48

I hear the Lord saying, “In this new season of promotion and advancement that you’ve entered into, more will be required of you. However, be encouraged! My grace is sufficient, and My strength will be perfected even in your weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:9). Your biggest asset is to abide in Me. Truly, I am the Vine and you are the branches; apart from Me you can do nothing (John 15:5), but through Me, you can do all things (Philippians 4:13).

“This season of upgrade will require an even stronger connection to Me; it is imperative that you spend time with Me in the secret place. Listen to My still small voice above the distractions, chaos, and even the well-meaning voices others. Beloved, I am leading you in a way that you have not previously been, but I will indeed be your fire by night and your cloud by day (Deuteronomy 1:33). As you continue to press in and abide in Me, I will give you fresh wisdom and revelation each day to navigate through these uncharted waters.

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).

d0c7efbc611d6e5ec2d6b3d0d5fb9e69

“Do not fear or be anxious about anything, rather in all things, let your prayers and petitions be made known to Me (Philippians 4:6). I am causing you to ascend to a higher place in Me, and I will be your all-sufficient One. Truly, you will know Me as Jehovah Jireh: your Provider! You shall lack nothing and you will know My abundance, even as it is written in My Word that as you delight in Me, I will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). Keep your eyes fixed solely on Me, and I will surely help you navigate through this new path. I will lead and instruct you along the way you should go. I will be faithful,” says the Lord!

This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls . . .” (Jeremiah 6:16).

A Harvest on the Tears You’ve Sown: I’m Bringing Things Full Circle!

Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. | Psalm 126:5

I hear the Lord saying, “Many of My children have been travailing in intersession, sowing many tears over some longstanding issues in their lives. I see their broken hearts over these things, and I have collected their tears in a bottle, even as it’s written in My Word: ‘You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book’ (Psalm 56:8).

Beautiful-Flowers-in-rain-Latest-Wallpaper

“Beloved, nothing has escaped My notice! I am bringing you a harvest of answered prayers on the very things you’ve been crying out for. Truly, I am now bringing it full circle, and you will see My restoration! Things are now coming into bloom, as they have been germinating underground for a very long time, even though you could not see it with your natural eye. Indeed, your very tears of intercession have been watering the seeds! Watch as the answers and restoration of the things you’ve been crying out for suddenly begin to spring forth.

“I am not unjust. Have I not written in My Word, ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know’ (Jeremiah 33:3)? I am a good Father, and when My children ask Me for bread, I do not give them a stone (Matthew 7:9). You have clung to Me, and you have continued to remain hopeful, even when things have looked hopeless in the natural. Even as Abraham, your promises have tarried, and you have felt barren. Your story isn’t over yet! It is now your time,” says the Lord!

“Remember that I did above and beyond for Abraham, even making Him the father of many nations (Genesis 17:4). When it was My appointed time, I brought to pass everything that I had promised to him and more. Though you have felt weary like a woman in labor who is long overdue, it is now your appointed time and season. I am bringing things full circle, not just in one area in your life, but in many! You will be amazed and overwhelmed at My goodness and faithfulness to you.

“My Beloved, lift your eyes! It’s harvest time, and I’m bringing things full circle! You will see and taste My goodness in the land of the living. Rejoice! I am the God Who makes all things new. Truly I make things beautiful in My time (Ecclesiastes 3:11).”

I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).

“I’m Not a Far-Off God.”

The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honor to his name.
Lord, even when your path takes me through
the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.
Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
You become my delicious feast
even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit;
you give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows.
So why would I fear the future?
For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterward, when my life is through,
I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you! | Psalm 23 (TPT)

I hear the Lord saying, “I am not a far-off God who is distant and aloof; I am an up close and personal, ever-present, and ready-to-help-you God. I know your words before they’re even on your tongue. I know those burdens you carry, even when others don’t; I’m aware of it all, and I long to help you.

“My child, you weren’t meant to carry these things. Allow Me to be your burden bearer. I am your peace, even when the storms of this life are raging against you. I am the God who goes before you and levels the gates of bronze (Isaiah 45:2). I’m the God who neither sleeps nor slumbers. I am walking alongside you, regardless of how you presently feel.

“I’m not a far-off God. When you feel empty and alone, I’m the one who sticks closer than a brother. My presence surrounds you like a shield; you can draw comfort and strength from Me. Beloved, be encouraged, for I am very near to you.”

“The word is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we proclaim (Romans 10:8).

You Will See My Justice!

The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. | Psalm 103:6

Many have experienced severe injustices in their lives. Even as Job went through a time of severe testing, so it has been with you. It may feel as though you’ve barely recovered from one trial, only to have the fire be turned up seven times hotter. However, even as it is written, “Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared” (Proverbs 3:25-26).

I believe the Lord is saying, “Expect to see My swift justice in your life! The enemy has overplayed his hand, and he will pay sevenfold (Proverbs 6:31). You need not have fear of disaster or ruin, for I the Lord will be your confidence! I see that you have remained faithful and have not cast away your confidence, even as My servant Job remained faithful through the severity of all he encountered. Beloved, like Job, you will be blessed with far greater than what you started with (Job 42:12). Your name is being spoken in the courtroom of heaven, and the scales of justice are now tipping in your favor.

Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making (Proverbs 16:11).

“Though the accuser has been challenging you day and night, My blood speaks a better word over you! The Righteous Judge is declaring, ‘NOT GUILTY!’ I am exposing the false accusations and slanders that have been spoken against you, and I am clearing your name where the enemy has tried to taint it. The enemy is being brought down in this hour; every false witness and slanderous tongue that has risen against you I will refute, for this is your heritage!

wooden-judges-gavel

“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord (Isaiah 54:17).

Know this: I am a just Judge, and I am now rising on your defense. You will see My justice for all you have suffered. Truly I prepare a table of feasting before you in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23:5) Watch now, as My favor and reward are being poured out on you.”

A wicked person earns deceptive wages,
but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward (Proverbs 11:18).

Do Not Lose Hope: You Will See Massive Movement in March!

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. | Isaiah 40:29

Recently, while seeking the Lord, I heard Him speak, “There will be massive movement in the month of March.” While continuing to press into this, I sensed the Lord saying, “My Bride, I know that you are beyond weary, but it is imperative that you do not lose hope. Do not give up, for you will surely see massive movement in your life, even in this month. Though you may currently feel that things are at a standstill and see little to no movement in the natural realm, the truth is that I’m moving mightily behind the scenes of your life right now. I am bringing My divine alignment, even to those long-standing issues that have seemingly refused to budge. Truly you are in the final stages, even as a woman who is about to give birth.

“This is a critical point where you must continue to align your words and thoughts with My Word and all that I have promised you. As you do, you will begin to see confirmations and movement take place, even in the natural (as Elijah saw “the cloud the size of a man’s hand” in 1 Kings 18:44). Look through eyes of faith and know that truly I am moving mightily on your behalf. Even now, things have already begun to shift. Continue to decree a thing, and watch as I establish it in your very life (Job 22:28). Now is time to get your hopes up, for I’m sending My refreshing rains of abundance! Yes, you will see massive movement in March!”

But the Lord God has become my divine helper.
He leans into my heart and lays his hands upon me! | Psalm 54:4 (TPT)

I hear the Lord saying, “My child, do not be discouraged and do not be dismayed; I am your ever-present help during times of trouble. I am with you; fear not! 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).

“Why should you fear the future? Have I not promised you in My Word that the plans I have for you are for your good (Jeremiah 29:11)? Beloved, you can trust Me with all of the concerns of your heart, both big and small alike. I delight in helping you! Roll those heavy burdens onto Me. I am your burden-bearer, the One who gives you peace. You have nothing to fear, for truly My yolk is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11:30).

1gje1s

“I am your Good Shepherd; allow Me to lead you beside My still waters (Psalm 23:2) In Me, you will find rest for your soul. Receive My peace, for it is readily available to you. Know that My goodness and mercy are hovering over you now in this very moment, and for all of eternity. Be encouraged, for I am with you,” says the Lord!

Partaking in Christ’s Sufferings: An Invitation to Draw Near to His Heart

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. | Psalm 34:18

My child, you will experience days where you taste the victory and joy of being on the mountaintop. However, because you live in a broken world, there will also be times where you will experience heartache and loss. Know this: I am the God who causes you to triumph in all things. Though your weeping may endure for the night, My joy will come in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

Be assured that I am not glorified in sickness nor disease, for I have redeemed you from these things, even as I took them upon myself on the cross so that you could be healed. Healing is the children’s bread, and it is your portion (Matthew 15:26, Galatians 3:13). I am not glorified through poverty, for it is true that I delight in the prosperity of My servants (Psalm 35:27). Even so, there will be times where you will feel the sting of rejection and betrayal by those closest to you. I, too, experienced these feelings, as I am not a far off God, but a God Who is acquainted with your sufferings and angst (Isaiah 53:3).

When you are misunderstood and persecuted for My Name’s sake, know that your reward is great (Matthew 5:11). When men misjudge you and misunderstand your heart, you can be assured that I never will; for even if your own father and mother forsake you, I, the Lord, will receive you. Truly I am the Friend that sticks closer than a brother (Psalm 27:10, Proverbs 18:24).

When you go through the valley, I am very near to you. Even during these times, I am making sure that you are passing through.

Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me (Psalm 23:4)

Beloved, these times of trial are an invitation to draw near to My heart. Even amidst your sufferings, I am near and present. As My Word says, I am close to the brokenhearted, and a bruised reed I will not deny (Matthew 12:20). I am the God Who longs to comfort you, even as a mother comforts her child (Isaiah 66:13).

Be encouraged that there are things you are gleaning during your seasons of suffering that you would not know while on the mountaintop. Even as diamonds are formed during times of adversity and great pressure, so it is with you. I will cause more fruit to come forth through this time of pruning; I will use all of this for your good. It is true that I turn your mourning into dancing and your bitter into sweet. Do not lose heart, My love, though weeping may endure for the night, true joy comes in the morning!

Count it all joy when you experience these trials, as your faith is being strengthened and fortified. I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Beloved, be rest assured that there is nothing that can separate you from My everlasting love!

 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).

I Am Intimately Acquainted With You

Friends, I pray that this word blesses you. Be encouraged today that God has His eye on you and that He will meet your every need. Truly the Lord is intimately acquainted with you!

Blessings,

Angie. 


You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it. | Psalm 139:3-6

“My precious child, I know your every thought, for truly I am intimately acquainted with you. Indeed, even the very hairs on your head are numbered (Matthew 10:30). I desire for you to talk with Me about all of the details of your life, for it is My good pleasure to help you with whatever circumstances you are going through. I am a good and loving Father, and if My children ask Me for bread, I will not give them a stone (Matthew 7:9-11). Ask of Me; knock, and the door will be opened for you! Seek Me, and surely you will find Me (Jeremiah 29:13).”

How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you (Psalm 139:17-18).

“Truly I say to you, all of my good thoughts toward you outnumber the sand on the shore. I love you, My child, and My delight is in you. Be encouraged, for I am intimately acquainted with you.”

I Am Your Security!

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. | Proverbs 18:10 (ESV)

I hear the Lord saying, “Fear not! I am your security and your safe place, even amidst the shaking that is happening. I am your immovable Rock: your firm foundation, your shelter during the storm.

“Beloved, do not put your eyes on nor your hope in that which is temporary. Fix your eyes on Me, for when everything around you is changing, I do not change; I am the same today, yesterday, and forever! Even amidst the great changes and transition that you are currently experiencing, know that My purposes are being accomplished through it all. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).

In-the-Eye-of-the-Storm

“Be assured that I am leading you into a good place. As it is written in My Word, ‘I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope’ (Jeremiah 29:11). Keep your eyes fixed on Me, and not on the winds and the waves. Truly I, alone, am your security,” says the Lord!

“I’m Teaching You to Ascend to a Higher Place!”

Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. | Psalm 144:1

“Beloved, do not be dismayed by the swirling that you feel, nor by the intensity of the battle. Even as the children of Israel approached the Promised Land, many turned around out of their fear of the giants that were in their land (Numbers 13). You, too, may feel like there are giants closing in on you in this season, trying to take away the promises I have given you. The reality is this: though it may feel like you are surrounded, you are being surrounded by Me.

“In this season, I am teaching and equipping you to ascend to a higher place in Me. Truly, you will come up high above the warfare taking place, knowing full well your authority as a child of the Most High, seated in heavenly places with Me (Ephesians 2:6). I have given you power to overcome the enemy, and nothing—again I say, nothing—by any means shall harm you (Luke 10:19). Even in the midst of the shaking and turbulence you feel, I will use it to launch you forward into My purpose. I am covering you under the shadow of My wings, under which you shall find refuge (Psalm 91:4).

hero

Do not doubt that which I have spoken over you. Truly, you are victorious in Me! This is your time and your season to take the land. Now is the time to press into Me even more in worship, prayer, and dance. Give Me your extravagant worship, and watch as you ascend to a high place in Me. You shall overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11),” says the Lord.

Be Still

… Rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength … | Isaiah 30:15

Many are feeling an uneasiness due to the transition and shifting that’s taking place right now. However, in the midst of this, I hear the Lord saying, “My child: peace, be still. I, alone, am your firm foundation and your confidence. As you continue to remain firmly anchored in Me, you will not be shaken, no matter what is taking place externally. Get still and quiet before Me. Don’t allow your heart to be troubled, but continue to abide in Me. I am the God Who causes you to flourish and bear fruit, even in seasons of drought. My supply is limitless; keep your eyes on Me! Peace, be still,” says the Lord.

Best-Apple-Varieties

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
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 17:7-8).

Mighty in Battle

Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle. | Psalm 24:8

I am the Lord your God Who is mighty in battle! I go before you, making the crooked places straight and your rough places smooth (Isaiah 45:2). Nothing, and again I say, nothing is too difficult for Me,” says the Lord. “Do not fear and do not fret, because I am the Lord your God, and I am fighting for you. I am fighting your battles, and I am bringing you the spoils. Truly, you shall see and know the victory! You shall declare, ‘My God is mighty in battle!’ Go ahead and lift up a shout of praise, because though your enemies may come at you from one direction, they will flee from you in seven (Deuteronomy 28:7). Indeed, you will look for your enemies, but you will not be able to find them (Isaiah 41:12); I am the God Who breaks open the way before you. I am the God Who silences the voice of the accuser. I am your God, and I am mighty to save and deliver you. I am mighty in battle,” declares the Lord of Hosts!

“I’m Working It Out!”

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God. | Psalm 42:11

Many have been feeling a real discouragement and spirit of heaviness try to come upon them because of long-standing issues in their lives that have seemingly refused to budge. However, I hear the Lord saying today, “My child, refuse to give in to heaviness and despair, rather, encourage your soul in the Lord, just as David did (1 Samuel 30:6). Truly I say to you, I am working it out. That relationship, that job issue, that debt, that wayward child…though these things look impossible to redeem in the natural, I am the God of the supernatural!”

I am reminded of the powerful song “Way Maker,” as one version sings, “Even when I don’t see it, You’re working. Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working. You never stop, You never stop working; You never stop, You never stop working.” I feel the Lord desires us to declare this powerful truth over whatever circumstance or obstacle seems to be standing in our way. Beloved, do not underestimate the power of your praise or your decree! Praise is your mighty weapon in this hour.

Right now, things may seem like a tangled up mess, but that doesn’t mean God isn’t working on the scene. Soon you will see the long awaited answers to what you have been praying for. Like the Word of God says, “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14).

Be encouraged today, for what is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18:27). Truly, He is working everything out for your good!

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).

Protect Your Freedom and Your Peace!

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. | Galatians 5:1

I hear the Lord saying today, “Protect your freedom and your peace. Do not go back to what I have already delivered you from.”

F7B09F43-6F2D-4656-9331-627E42BFFDE4

Many have sensed the breakthrough of this new year and season already beginning to gain momentum, however, recently there has been a war on your peace and the freedom that is already yours. What you are feeling is simply a confirmation that you are advancing and taking ground. Hold your peace, beloved! Do not give in to the pressure that others are trying to put on you, for this is a distraction. God is calling us to diligently and proactively guard both the freedom and peace that we have been given.

Let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no (Matthew 5:37). Often, people pleasing and the ‘fear of man’ are tactics used by the enemy to rob us of our peace; yet it is written in the Word of God that we “owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law” (Romans 13:8). Healthy boundaries are not only necessary, but vital in this pivotal season that many have entered into. Many may misunderstand your heart, but your Heavenly Father never will.

I want to encourage you to pay no attention to the giants that may be in your land, but to have the spiritual eyesight of Joshua and Caleb; be encouraged today that there are more for you than against you.

I speak fresh courage over you today, and I silence the voice of the enemy that would seek to intimidate and overwhelm you. Go forward, go forward; do not look back, for your God is on your side! He is mighty in your midst. The Lord surrounds you with songs of deliverance, and your victory is assured!

The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

Fresh Hope

Hi, friends. This is a word that the Lord gave me during worship service at church Sunday morning; I’m sharing it today because I felt that it is for others in the Body, as well. Be blessed and encouraged, for the Lord is releasing fresh hope to His people. He is the God who makes all things new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

. . . . .

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. | Proverbs 13:12

I am calling My people to cast off hope deferred. Let hope arise this morning! I am the God Who calls dead things to life. I can cause new life to come out of what looks like barren and dry ground. Allow your heart to hope again, for it’s a new day and a new dawn! I am the God Who makes all things new. Nothing is impossible for Me. Receive My joy and My hope today. I will not fail you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am the friend Who sticks closer than a brother,” says the Lord.

A Marker Year of Upgrade, Great Change, and Unprecedented Favor

I hear the Lord say, “2020 will be a marker year! This year you will experience My favor and upgrade like you’ve not known before. Yes, you have experienced the trickle of My blessing, but this year, you will know it like a flood! I will open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing you do not have room to contain (Malachi 3:10).

“Many of you have gone into this year feeling tested by seemingly unusual warfare, but you can be assured that this is simply conformation of the size and magnitude of the unusual blessing that is coming! Hold your peace; do not be moved by what you see in the natural, nor by the circumstances that the enemy has sought to bring against you, for he is simply showing his hand. Again I say to you, hold your peace! You are on the verge of a massive breakthrough.

“I am rapidly accelerating you! Even now, I am lining things up behind the scenes to shift and propel you into your new season. There will be some who will be shocked at how quickly I will move you forward, but do not be afraid. Indeed, what has taken some years to accomplish will take only moments for you.

23037201395_6bafc9fdf0_o

Upgrade, upgrade, upgrade! 2020 will be the year of upgrade and unprecedented favor for My faithful servants. Like Joseph, you have been thrown into a pit and have experienced betrayal by those who should have stayed by you. Even so, I’m using it and turning it all around for your good. Truly, what the enemy has meant for your harm and destruction, I will use for your good. You have stood strong, you have sown many tears, and you have trusted, even when you haven’t understood. Now you will see how everything was worth it in the end. You will say with tears in your eyes, ‘My Father is faithful, and never once did He leave my side.

“Rejoice; again I say, rejoice! This is your year and this is your season to come out of captivity. You will break forth from the shackles that the enemy sought to keep you bound in, for this is the year I make everything new! Look no more to the former, instead, only look ahead. Your future is bright and bursting with the promise and fulfilment of all I’ve spoken over you. This is your year to come full circle. You will see and know My goodness in the land of the living, and your testimony will be Psalm 34:8 ⁠— ‘O taste and see that the Lord is good!’ Thank Me now and rejoice at what I’m about to do,” says the Lord!


 

Hi, friends ⁠—

I would like to invite you to sow into this powerful Word of the Lord as we head into 2020 together. As you sow, please name your seed and the breakthrough you are believing for so that I can pray and intercede on your behalf.

Thank you for your partnership with this ministry; your love and support are greatly appreciated.

My Goodness and Mercy Hovers Over You

The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. | Lamentations 3:22-23

“My child, My goodness and mercy hovers over your life, even now. Truly My compassions never come to an end (Lamentations 3:22). Nothing. again I say, nothing can ever separate you from My love.”

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 8:38-39).

“Do not fear tomorrow, nor what the future may hold. Indeed, the plans I have for you are only for your well being. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

“I am good. In fact, I am better than you think! You’ve stepped into a new year and a new season. Refuse to let doubt or the regrets of yesterday bring you down. As far as the east is from the west, I have forgiven your past mistakes and remember them not (Psalm 103:12).

“I am calling you to receive fresh mercies and grace for today. Shake off the past disappointments and look with joyful anticipation to the good future that I have laid out for you. Truly your latter will be great, and your best days are ahead of you. I am the One who causes things to work together for your good; I have given you a hope and a great future, and I alone am your exceedingly great reward. Receive and live in the abundant life that I’ve bestowed upon you,” says the Lord!

A Season of Rest, Refreshing, and Restoration

Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved? | Song of Songs 8:5

There has been a shift in both the spiritual and natural realm, as we have entered into this new year and new season. Many have been hard-pressed on every side, feeling as though they’ve barely survived 2019. Even so, take heart! You have prevailed, and the Lord is now rewarding the faithfulness and endurance you’ve demonstrated in your previous season.

1427263221392.jpeg

I believe the Lord is saying, “Well done, My good and faithful servant! A season of reward is upon you. You will now experience My rest, refreshing, and restoration. I am not only going to restore in one area of your life, but in all areas where the enemy had sought to steal, kill, and destroy. I am the God who is able to redeem the time and the years, and I will restore that which the locust has eaten (Joel 2:25). You will know unspeakable joy and full glory; you will feel a new spring in your step and a new song on your lips!”

He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in Him (Psalm 40:3).

“Rejoice! Again, I say, rejoice! Not only did you survive, but you will now know what it means to truly thrive. For I am the God who gives you life and life more abundantly (John 10:10).”
