You Are Free!

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:36

Even as we are celebrating Independence Day, the Lord is highlighting the word ‘freedom.’ Many have felt shaken and even assaulted by things they have already been set free from. The Lord says, “Pay no attention to the ‘giants in the land,’ for you are taking much ground. Though it may feel like the ‘old’ is trying to encroach on you, be at peace and know that you are free!

“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

My peace is your portion, so guard it and protect it diligently, for your enemy prowls about like a lion looking for whatever he can devour (1 Peter 5:8). Even so, as you stay rooted in Me, you are safe; you are shielded. No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

Stand above the noise, and pay no attention to the ‘smoke and mirrors’ the enemy is seeking to distract you with. This is your hour to advance and take the land. Truly there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16). You have nothing to fear because in Me you are free!

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

2 Corinthians 3:17

You Hear My Voice!

“I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.”

Psalm 16:7

The Lord says, “My Child, be encouraged and know that you do hear My voice! Though at times doubt and discouragement war against you, and there are times that you question your ability to hear Me clearly, it is said in My Word, ‘My sheep hear My voice and I know them, and they follow Me’ (John 10:27).

“Let hope and confidence arise, for I am leading you beside still waters. Whether you turn to the right of to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it’ (Isaiah 30:21).

“I have called you to bind up the brokenhearted and to set the captives free, to release freedom to the prisoners (Isaiah 61:1). Continue to encourage the downtrodden and the weary. As it is written, ‘A word in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver’ (Proverbs 25:11).

I am calling you to release hope to the hopeless and to let your light shine for all the world to see. Just as I’ve written in My Word:

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:16

“Keep releasing My Word of life, for when you do, it is like arrows that go forth and dispel the very darkness.”

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

Isaiah 55:11

“Know that what you make happen for others, I will make happen for you! I am pleased with how you continue to pour out and bless others, even amidst your own struggles. My words in you are powerful, for they are spirit and they are life (Hebrew 4:12)!

“Be encouraged and know that you indeed hear My voice. I am well pleased with you!”

It’s Going to Be Okay!

“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 Lord says. “It’s going to be okay! Those circumstances that have been keeping you up at night and ebbing away at your peace, entrust them into Me and watch what I will do. Allow Me to fight your battles, My Beloved. Don’t worry about those things that you cannot control, rather trust in Me, for I am sovereign; I am fully in control.

“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

Matthew 5:27

“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

“Open your mouth and begin to praise Me for how I am working in your life. I am always working for your good, even in what you perceive to be your darkest moments. For truly if I am for you, who or what can possibly stand against you (Romans 8:31)?

“Even as David encouraged himself in Me, I am calling you to do the same.

“David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.”

1 Samuel 30:6

“Take heart, I am fighting your battles and perfecting all that concerns you. It’s going to be okay!”

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

Exodus 14:14

Now Is Your Time

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.
“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 9:13-15 (MSG)

The Lord says, “Now is your time! Rapid acceleration is taking place, as what was once held up will be no longer! You are in a kairos season, for I am causing things to suddenly spring forth and come together. Write the vision and make it plain because you will soon see the manifestation of all that I have spoken to you.”

Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.”

Habakkuk 2:2

This is not a time to hold back. Beloved, now is the time to move forward! Step out in faith and do what I’ve put in your heart to do. Trust in Me, My Bride! Truly I will back you up, for My favor rests upon you. I am bringing the right people and setting up divine connections to help and support you. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone! I’m with you, and I will not fail you.

“Your wilderness season has trained and equipped you for your new season. You are emerging, leaning on your Beloved (Song of Songs 8:5). Walk forward boldly and confidently, and be assured that I am with you. Trust in Me with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Continue to trust in Me, and I will keep your path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). I am bringing you out of a place of obscurity and into freedom. You will be a crown of splendor in My hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God (Isaiah 62:3). Now is your time and your season,” declares the Lord!

You Will Breathe Easy Again!

The Lord says, “My child, you will breathe easy again! The enemy of your soul has been working to steal your peace and feed you ‘worst case scenarios,’ but the truth is that it’s all smoke and mirrors. I declare that the best is yet to come, and you are entering your finest hour. The fog and confusion are lifting even now, and you will see things as they truly are.”

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:32

“The reality is this: I have been at work. Though you have felt like you are in a ‘dark night of the soul,’ I have been weaving My good even through your most painful circumstances. I am the God who indeed causes all things to work together for your good!

“The seemingly constant warfare and resistance that you have been encountering has been building your spiritual muscles. I have been training you through it all. My Beloved, you are much stronger and resilient than you realize. I am giving you hinds feet to walk upon the high places (Psalm 18:33) as I bring you into a wide place of freedom.”

“Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

Psalm 144:1

“Take heart: You will see where the enemy used to be able to so easily overwhelm you, he will do so no longer. You’ll begin to see things from a new, heavenly perspective. You’ll laugh at the attempts of the enemy, even as I, Myself, laugh. As it is written, ‘the One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them’ (Psalm 2:4).

“My Beloved, truly this is a new day for you. Allow Me to wash away the pain and sorrow of your former season; no more looking back! It’s time to move forward in joy and anticipation of all that I have in store for you. I will cultivate a heart of gratitude within you, and you will see that the very trials and adversity that you’ve encountered have worked together for your good. You will emerge from this season with a powerful testimony of the Father’s goodness and faithfulness. I weave My beauty through broken places, giving beauty for ashes (Isaiah 61:3).

“My glory and light are shining on you, even now! Be encouraged, you will breathe easy again.”

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

Isaiah 60:1

You Are Mine!

“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

“You are Mine, beloved! Take refuge in Me and be confident that I am with you through every season of the soul! Know this: people and circumstances will change, but I remain the same forever!

“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.”

Malachi 3:6

“Truly I will never leave you or forsake you, neither will I loosen my hold on you. Put no confidence in the flesh, rather continue to lean fully on Me. I will not fail you. I am walking along side of you, leading you throughout your life’s journey. I am your good Shepard. I will lead you beside the still waters. I will refresh and comfort you. I will restore your soul (Psalms 23). Have no fear of the future of what tomorrow may bring. I will be with you, even til the end of the age (Matthew 28:20).

“Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.”

I Am Doing Heart Surgery!

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?”

Song of Songs 8:5

“I am doing a deep work in the hearts and lives of My people in this hour. Though initially the process may be painful, the end result will be glorious! Lean into Me and do not resist this work, beloved. Many are understandably grieved by the upheaval that is taking place in our nation. There are also those who are bewildered by some of the recent fiery trials taking place in own their personal lives.

“There have been some injustices against you that have left you feeling forsaken and heartsick. Know this, beloved: this is not the end of your story! your latter will be greater (Haggai 2:9)! You will not only come fourth with your testimony simply in tact, but it will be even greater. You will emerge from these fiery trials without a trace of smoke. Not one hair on your head will be harmed. ‘Nothing missing and nothing broken’, declares the Lord.

I am the God who takes what the enemy intended for your harm and turns it into good. Allow Me to perform the necessary heart surgery, knowing that you will not only survive, but you will thrive.

“In this season, I am giving you beauty for ashes and joy for mourning. A great healing is taking place in this nation in the lives of My people. So take hope; I am doing heart surgery!

Stay In Alignment!

In the midst of all the unrest, I hear the Lord saying, “Stay in alignment!” Alignment is key in this season. Be diligent to make sure that your words, thoughts, and actions correspond with truth.

“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

I see my chiropractor on a regular basis. I have noticed that when one part of my body is out of alignment, it can effect many other areas as well. This is applicable with the spirit, too. If we are not properly aligned in the spirit, it can hinder other parts of our life.

The god of this world, Satan, is seeking to blind the eyes of many through misalignment and deception (2 Corinthians 4:4). He desires us to partner with him and his evil agenda. However, it is imperative that we recognize the source of the battle and do not fall for his tactics.

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

1 Peter 5:8

Deception, greed, and the spirit of offense are running rampant in this hour. As the bride of Christ, we must guard our heart and mind diligently against these things, we are called to boldly proclaim God’s truth and to not shrink back even in the face of adversity.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Proverbs 4:23

Stand Your Ground!

“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:13

Many of you, especially the prophets and intercessors, are experiencing some heavy warfare. The enemy is targeting your mind and your thoughts. He is trying to muzzle you and keep you from releasing God’s truth. He is threatened by your voice and the sound that you are releasing. Know that when you speak, your words do not hit the ground, rather they go fourth as light that penetrates the darkness! Continue to speak truth and stand your ground!

Put on the full armor of God and recognize that the source of the battle is in the spirit and not the flesh (2 Corinthians 10:3).

I prophesy that fear is bowing now in the name of Jesus! We are getting ready to enter a powerful time of Pentecost, and great and mighty things are already being released! Lift up your praise, the fog will clear. Clarity and fresh revelation are coming. Stand your ground!

Expect a Jump-Start in June

Jump-start: to start or restart (something) rapidly or forcefully; to impart fresh or renewed energy to (something).

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

As I was seeking the Lord for the upcoming month of June, almost immediately I heard, “Expect a jump-start in June.” As I listened further to the Lord, I believe that this is what He is saying to the Body of Christ in this hour:

“In the month of June, I will jump-start My people. I will cause them to bounce back from an extended season of trials and difficulties. Many have been on the verge of becoming heart sickand even disillusionedbecause of the onslaught of circumstances and opposition that has come against them. Even so, they have continued to cling to Me; though the winds and waves have seemed to beat violently against them, they’ve kept their eyes locked on their Savior.”

I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept My word and have not denied My Name.

Revelation 3:8

“Watch now as I jump-start you, causing you to bounce back stronger than ever. I’ve allowed the very warfare and resistance that you’ve encountered to make you resilient, even in the midst of the enemy’s attacks. Just as Micah 7:8 says, ‘Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.’ The enemy thought you were down for the count, but he didn’t anticipate what’s coming: You are arising from the ashes, and you are coming forth victoriously with an even greater testimony than before!

“Yes, you’ve been tried and tested in your desert season, but I have sustained you, and I’ve been with you through it all. I am the God Who changes the times and seasons (Daniel 2:21). You are now emerging from the trials and testing, crossing over into a season where you will see My justice and vindication for all that you have suffered!

“Some have been lied about, having their name dragged through the mud. The enemy sought to disqualify you through the word curses and slander of others, yet even as I’ve written in My Word, ‘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).

“The very tears you’ve cried and the blessings that you have spoken over those who’ve persecuted you have not gone by unnoticed by Me. Continue to keep your heart soft and tender, and watch as I prepare a table of feasting before you, even in the presence of your enemies. Your testimony will be that of Joseph’s: ‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good’ (Genesis 50:20).

Beloved, though some are proclaiming that this is the worst of times, I declare that your best season is now at hand! Truly your pain will pay, and I will cause double blessings for all that you’ve endured.”

Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours.

Isaiah 61:7

“Expect to see a quick turnaround and divine alignment come as I jump-start you in June! You are emerging out of the fire, crossing over into a season of abundance and blessings,” says the Lord!

You let people ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance

Psalm 66:12

Sleeping Church, Arise!

Friends, I could not sleep last night, as my spirit was grieving and travailing over the great injustice that has taken place in regard to the death of George Floyd. Although this word is heavier than what the Lord typically puts on my heart, I make no apologies for it. God have mercy on this nation and for the shedding of innocent blood. Lord, break our hearts for what breaks Yours. We say enough is enough.


But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

Ephesians 5:13-14

“I am calling My Church to wake up from her place of apathy and slumber. I am calling My watchmen on the wall and My intercessors to arise. Where are My watchmen? Where are My intercessors?” says the Lord.

“Do not be deceived: I cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows (Galatians 6:7). I am bringing swift justice and exposure in this hour. The blood of the innocent cries out to Me, even as it was with Abel:

The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.”

Genesis 4:10

“My People: vengeance is Mine, I will repay (Romans 12:19). My righteous indignation is burning, and I will stay silent no longer! For behold, I will come with fire and with My chariots, like a whirlwind, to render My anger with fury, and My rebuke with flames of fire (Isaiah 66:15).

“I am a God of justice. I am a God Who delivers the poor and oppressed. For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make with them an everlasting covenant (Isaiah 61:8).

“My Bride, it is time to arise from your place of slumber. It is time to cry out for Me to break your heart for what breaks Mine. For I am near to the grieving and broken hearted (Psalm 34:18). Grieve with those who grieve, and weep with those who weep. It’s time to come together as the united Body that I’ve called you to be. Sleeping Church, arise!

Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?

Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
“If you take away the yoke from your midst,
The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,

If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.

The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

Isaiah 58:6-12

Don’t Lose Heart!

“But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept to his way without turning aside. I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.” | Job 23:10-12

The refining fire is hot right now, never the less, don’t lose heart! You are coming fourth purified like the gold. I prophesy that you will not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord (Psalm 118:17)!

Many of you are going through a very intense time of testing and refining, yet be encouraged! Even though the pressure is great, you are indeed crossing over to the other side!

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

hero

Truly, weeping may endure for a night, but His joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). It is imperative that you continue to hold fast to His truths! Immerse yourself in worship and the Word. Nestle in close to Him, for he is near to the brokenhearted (Isaiah 42:3).

Hold fast to hope and do not cast away your confidence, regardless of the storms that are raging. Do not lose heart! You will see and testify of the goodness of God in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).

“Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you” (Psalm 27:14)!

I Am With You in the Unfamiliar Place!

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

Many are finding themselves in unfamiliar territory and seemingly deep waters. The Lord says, “I am with you in the deep waters. As written in My Word, stand at the cross roads and look. Ask where the good way is and walk in it (Jeremiah 6:16).

“I will be faithful to lead you and guide you into the unknown as you cling to me and and continue to trust me.

“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).

“As I’ve promised you in My Word, when you walk through the waters they will not sweep over you, and when you walk through the flames, they will not set you ablaze (Isaiah 43:2).

“Beloved, know that I am indeed a wall of fire around you, and you are highly protected; do not be afraid, rather continue to trust Me completely.

“‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within'” (Zachariah 2:5).

“My bride, bravely venture on with Me, and be assured that all of my plans for your life are for good, not for evil; they are to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

“In this season, I’m calling you to walk on the high places with Me. I’m equipping you for battle. Guard your peace, for it is a powerful weapon.

“In this season the warfare has been intense and you have felt weary, yet be encouraged; know that you are taking much ground and advancing My kingdom. Keep moving forward and do not focus on the giants in your land. Truly, there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16)

“Be encouraged, I am with you in the unfamiliar place. You are crossing over into a place of abundance, and victory will be yours!”

You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance” (Psalm 66:12).

I Am at Work

“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 Lord says, “My child, be encouraged and know that I am at work in your life, even at this very moment! It may appear outwardly that things are crumbling all around you, however, I am in control of every facet of your life; I will bring beauty out of even the most painful circumstances when you surrender everything to me. I am the God who brings beauty from ashes!

“and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor” (Isaiah 61:3). 

“Do not look at outward appearances, rather continue to anchor yourself in Me and trust My Word. I will not fail you, for I alone am your cornerstone- your firm and unshakable foundation!

“So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic'” (Isaiah 28:16).

32564773943_f3657ed5fd

“Though the enemy would seek to intimidate you through adverse situations, do not give in to his tactics, for I have made you victorious in Me. You are an overcomer (Revelation 12:11)!

“Know that even though you may not see it yet, I am weaving your life together like a beautiful tapestry. I am the potter and you are the clay; continue to stay pliable in My hands so I can mold you into the person I’ve destined you to be. Be encouraged and know that I am at work!”

You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God” (Isaiah 62:3).

Mercy Triumphs Over Judgement

“My child, My mercy and grace are hovering over you! As written in My Word, mercy triumphs over judgement (James 2:13). I am bigger than any mistake that you have made; I can make good out of the most broken pieces of your life if you just surrender everything to Me. Do not live in the regrets of the past nor the failures of yesterday, rather receive My fresh mercy for today.

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

“I am calling you to throw off the burdens that so easily entangle you, the ones that keep you from running the race I have set before you (Hebrews 12:1). Though few understand your unique and sometimes difficult journey, I am intimately aware of all that you are facing. I will help you when you call upon Me, for I oppose the proud but give grace to the humble (James 4:6).

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17).

315791E8-76F3-4B4C-B257-4FAF3F2CF784

“Do not allow the fear of man or the opinions of others to distract you or slow you down. You have My approval, and you are accepted by the Beloved (Ephesians 1:6)!

“Keep moving forward, and refuse to look back! Be encouraged and know that My grace abounds; My mercy triumphs over judgement! If I am for you, then who could possibly stand against you?”

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be[a] against us” (Romans 8:31)?

I Am Strong When You Are Weak!

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” | 2 Corinthians 12:9

My precious child, do not be discouraged, but know that I am strong when you are weak. I am filled with compassion towards you and I am ready and willing to help you.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

No matter how big or how small your need is, come to Me. I will help you. If you, My child, ask for bread, I would never give you a stone (Matthew 7:9).

The enemy would seek to overwhelm you and focus your eyes on the wind and the waves, but I say- look to Me! I am your answer for every problem that you are currently facing and will ever encounter. Take My grace for today and refuse to worry about the future.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34).

Be encouraged and know that faithful I have been and faithful I will continue to be. I love you and I am with you always. 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).

I’m Closer Than Ever!

“No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.” | Deuteronomy 30:14

“My child, You have questioned where I have gone because the opposition and fiery trials that you have been encountering have been so intense. Yet, I say to you that regardless of how you feel or what things appear to be in the natural, I have not left you; in fact, I am closer than ever!

“In the midst of the very adversities I am promoting you. I am calling you to stay focused on Me and have “doves eyes” even amidst the distractions that are currently warring against your mind. As written in My Word, I will keep you in perfect peace as your mind is on Me (Isaiah 26:3).

“I’ve promised that I will never leave you nor forsake you, so do not be dismayed nor cast away your confidence.

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged” (Deuteronomy 31:8).

“Take heart and continue pressing on, for indeed there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16).

“Beloved, be encouraged this day and know that I am closer than ever. I am mighty in your midst!

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).

Stay Rooted in Me

“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 17:7-9

“Many are feeling the shaking in the atmosphere at this time. Beloved, it is imperative that you stay rooted in Me! Resist the urge to “numb out” and to put your focus on lesser things. Rather, fix your eyes on that which is unseen.

“As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18)

“My bride, I am calling you to allow your roots to go deep into Me and to press in like never before. Much is in the balance during this time, and as I’ve written in My Word, your prayers are powerful and effective; they avail much (James 5:16)! When you are unsure of how to pray, pray in the spirit.

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26).

“Fear not, even amidst the turbulence that is taking place. For I am your security and your strong tower of refuge.

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

E8922543-DDD9-47FD-A5AC-12A7261E01A4

“Continue to sit quietly in My presence and listen for My still small voice. Have I not said in My Word to call upon Me and I will show you great and mighty things that you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3)? For when you seek Me with your whole heart, that is when you will find Me (Jeremiah 29:13).

“Lean into Me, and continue to stay rooted in Me. Faithful I have been and faithful I will continue to be. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You are safe with Me!”

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust” (Psalm 91:1-2).

The Fire Is Burning off the Dross

“He has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.” | Psalm 66:9-10

For many, it feels as though the furnace has been turned up seven times hotter. Even so, the fire is refining you and burning off the dross! Through it all, you are being prepared for the “next level!” Beloved, be encouraged, and know that you will come forth stronger than ever; not one hair on your head will be burned (Daniel 3:27; Luke 21:18).

Remember how Joseph had to endure a severe and prolonged time of testing? Yet through it all, the Lord was with him; Joseph’s character was being refined so that he could steward well all that the Lord had in store for him.

“The Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden” (Genesis 39:21).

Beloved, take heart! Truly the Lord is with you! He sees you and knows all that you have endured. He will be faithful and His purpose will be fulfilled through it all. Just like Joseph, you will be able to testify, “[The enemy] intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done” (Genesis 50:20)!

Yes, it’s intense right now, but those many trials will come to an end. The fire is burning off the dross and you are being prepared for a promotion!

Do not get weary in doing well, because your season of reaping is much closer than you think! God has great and mighty things in store!

“For his anger lasts only a moment, but His favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).

Know that the Lord’s hand is upon you and His Word is being perfected in your life. You are coming forth, refined like the gold!

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows” (Psalms 23:5).

May Day: “Restoring the Holy Seed of a Nation”

Hello, friends.

“Make Every Effort to Enter Into My Rest”

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” | Matthew 11:28

The Lord says, “Make every effort to enter into My rest. Cease your striving and come to Me. The enemy has tried to wear you down with many burdens and intimidate you with fear of the unknown. However, just as I’ve written in My Word, I have not given you the spirit of fear. Instead, I have given you power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

“Truly, this is your portion in Me! Beloved, fret not, I am a good Father and I am aware of all that you need. Be encouraged, for all of My promises for you are yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20)!

“If I clothe the lilies of the field that are here today and gone tomorrow, then how much more will I take care of you (Matthew 6:28)?

“My Child, I am calling you to come up to a higher place, even above the very storms that are currently raging against you. I am your strong tower of refuge. You are safe with Me!

“He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart” (Psalm 91:4).

The Eagle

“Beloved, My eye is upon you and I am lovingly watching over you. I will be faithful to perfect all that has concerned you.

“The Lord will vindicate me; your love, Lord, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands” (Psalm 138:8)

“Cease your striving and simply rest. I am fighting your battles and I will not fail you!”

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14)

 

Keep Doing Good!

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” | Matthew 5:16

“Beloved, keep doing good! There will be times when those closest to you misunderstand your heart and motives. Even so, keep doing good!

“As I’ve written in my word, love keeps no record of wrongs (Corinthians 13:5). Take no offense even when you are accused; for I have called you to owe no man anything except to love him as I do (Romans 13:8).

“I know that, at times, your path has been filled with difficulty. I see past your brave smile and I see straight into your heart, even when others do not.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

“My child, do not get weary in doing well, for truly your season of reaping is much closer than you realize. I have blessings and rewards for you! Keep walking the path that I have laid out for you. Keep doing good!

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalms 84:11). 

“Mayday!” A Month of Turn Around!

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word “Mayday” as a communications signal used as a distress call.

In mid-April, I began to seek the Lord in prayer and intercession for the month of May. I immediately heard in my spirit the word “Mayday.” As I pressed in further regarding this, I heard the Lord speak the following:

“My people’s cries have come before My throne! I have heard their calls for help, even as they have asked Me to heal their land. I will now arise on their behalf with healing in My wings (Malachi 4:2), even as a man of war (Exodus 15:3). As it is written in My Word, “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

“The enemy has sought to release a great blow of destruction through the outbreak of COVID-19. He has sought to immobilize and isolate My Church, silencing her voice. Even so, his plans will be overturned,” says the Lord! “My Church will not be silenced; she will rise up stronger than ever before! The Body of Christ will become a force to be reckoned with, and the gates of hell will not prevail against her. Just as I spoke to Peter:

“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:18-19).

“Watch, as even in May, I will begin to turn the tide. I will release My healing power on this plague that has been unleashed on the earth. My Bride will arise victoriously, even out of the very ashes of heartache and despair. I am turning the tide!

1_kG4ETk2pwWr1h52Th-jujg

“I am working all things together for My good (Romans 8:28). I will cause the economy to thrive, even in what appears to be the most unlikely time. I will cause My streams of abundance to flow through the dry and barren places. Truly, there is no lack in My Kingdom!

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).

“Remember the story of Esther? Even as Haman’s evil plans backfired against him, being hung on the very gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai, so it will be with the enemy. The very evil that he’s plotted against My people will be turned around and used for their good, backfiring against the enemy.

“Through this, a holy hunger has been stirred in the hearts and lives of My people; a deeper place of prayer and intercession has been birthed in them. Watch now, as revival fire sweeps through the nations! Church will no longer be contained inside of four walls of a building. I will send revival to the streets and even to the market place. Broken relationships and family units will be restored, as I will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents (Malachi 4:6). Prodigals will return home. The great shaking and turmoil that has taken place over the last several months have caused My people to be aware of their great need for Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other (Isaiah 45:5)!

worship-revival

“I will show Myself strong on My people’s behalf; I will cause them to come out of this time victoriously! I am restoring hope to My people once again. I am restoring joy, bringing beauty out of the ashes. I will call My people by a new name!

No longer will they call you Deserted,
or name your land Desolate.
But you will be called Hephzibah,
and your land Beulah
for the Lord will take delight in you,
and your land will be married (Isaiah 62:4).

“Truly My purposes will be accomplished, and My glory will cover the earth, even as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). May will be a month of turn around, as I am releasing My healing and cleansing upon your land. The winter is over, and spring has come (Song of Songs 2:11). The sounds of singing and rejoicing will be heard once again! Be encouraged: out of the darkness, My light and glory are shining!”

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you (Isaiah 60:1).

My Goodness Abounds!

The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love | Psalm 145:8

“My child, My goodness and grace abounds! I am bigger than any mistake that you have made or any mountain that currently looms in front of you. I am slow to anger and rich love (Psalm 145:8).

“Do not despise your weakness, rather lean into Me all the more. I am ready and willing to help you!

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:1-2).

“Know that though you feel weak, I am strong! Do not be fearful over circumstances, for they are subject to change! Yet, I am the God who never changes. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever! (Hebrew 13:8)

“I am the one who is even now going before you and leveling the mountains in your path. I am making the crooked places in your life straight.

I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron” (Isaiah 45:2).

“My grace is being extended to you in this very hour. Rest and receive all that I have made available to you. For it is in Me and through Me that all things are being held together (Colossians 1:17).

“Rest in Me and continue to trust Me. I am working mightily behind the scenes. Surely My goodness and graces abounds; My delight is in you!”

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).

There Is Power in the Blood!

For you know that your lives were ransomed once and for all from the empty and futile way of life handed down from generation to generation. It was not a ransom payment of silver and gold, which eventually perishes, but the precious blood of Christ—who like a spotless, unblemished lamb was sacrificed for us. | 1 Peter 1:18-19 (TPT)

As we are entering into the first day of Passover, the Lord is continuing to highlight to me the power of the blood of Jesus. The words from the old hymn “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power” has been playing over and over in my spirit:

The blood that Jesus shed for me
Way back on Calvary
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

It reaches to the highest mountain
And it flows to the lowest valley
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

It soothes my doubts and calms my fears
And it dries all my tears
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

Beloved, the blood of Jesus Christ is powerful. In the story of the first Passover, the Jewish people applied the blood of a sacrificed lamb to their doorposts so that they would be protected from the final plague that God had sent to Egypt. Even today, we can apply the powerful blood of Jesus Christ over our homes and our lives as we set our eyes on the One who was sacrificed for us: the Lamb of God.

“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt” (Exodus 12:13).

christ-the-true-passover-lamb

Romans 3:24-25 says, “all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.” As I took communion this morning, I was reminded of the price that Jesus paid so that we could walk in complete wholeness: healed, free, and delivered from any plague or sickness. This is our portion in Him! The Lord delights in rescuing His people. Whatever you are currently experiencing, His arm is mighty to save, heal, and deliver you. I encourage you today to take communion and meditate on His covenant with you, for truly there is power in the blood of Jesus Christ! His eye is lovingly upon you as He is watching over your life, protecting you from all harm. Even in the midst of the turbulence and shaking that’s taking place in the world today, the Lord is reminding us that He is completely in control. The blood of the Lamb will never lose its power!

He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (Psalm 91:4).

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life (Psalm 121:7).
