Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 (see also 2 Thessalonians 3:13) Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:14-16 This word redeem is translated from the Greek verb, exagorazo, which means "buying up the opportunity."  The word time in Ephesians 5:16 is from the Greek word for time, kairos, or a time in which something is seasonable (a specific time, as opposed to chronological time or days on a calendar). It can also mean "a specific time pregnant with destiny."
The swans are migrating north. Recently we saw a pair of gorgeous, white swans on a small lake in Alaska. They were in very shallow water feeding. One swan swam away into deeper water. The swans began trumpeting to each other. The calls sounded like noisy honks, continuing until the second one joined its partner in the deep. These rare Trumpeter swans winter in the northwestern US and southwestern Canada, migrating over 1400 miles to Alaska en route to their final arctic destination for nesting each summer.
Jesus and His disciples are in the boat on the Sea of Galilee. The wind and waves are about to take them out. The disciples are in a panic. Jesus stands up and with a word calms the storm. And then He has the audacity to say to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" (Mark 4:40). "Why were you afraid?" We were about to be dead! Didn't you see? No wonder the disciples were astonished. You may be in the same place now. Circumstances and your own mind make it seem as though fear and worry is the only option. You pray, but your head is still afraid and anxious after you pray.
A new identity emerges as we see as God sees and obediently embrace a new larger vision. A godly identity and vision comes with a promise and provision. God will provide the creative ideas that will form the provisions to finance your new identity to not only bless you but those in your sphere of influence. Vision always comes with provision for prosperity to increase your sphere of influence. "Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first of all your produce; so your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine." Proverbs 3:9–10. These are the Best of Times for the Kingdom of Light and the Worst of Times for the sinful kingdom of darkness!
The Lord is searching for a true and earnest friend, one that will keep Him company in the night and identify with the very heart and feelings of the sweet Master. Give me a few minutes to explain as this article could change your devotional life forever! I promise you that! "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death."  (Philippians 3:10) "Rejoice... inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings..."  (I Peter 4:13) What does it mean when Scripture uses the term: the fellowship of His sufferings? Is it just going through persecution as we suffer with the Lord? That's part of it, but it is also saying, "Lord, what's on your heart right now?" 
Many prophetic voices have been prophesying for a long time that God is doing something completely new. The truth of Isaiah 43:19 has been booming loudly in the spirit: "Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert." I have been feeling a significant urgency in the spirit recently, I can hear an alarm sounding in the spirit but it's not an alarm that sounds emergency and is negative. This alarm is sounding urgency, expectancy and a call to position.
I think we all have default modes we go to when we are tired, bored, angry, or hurt. I remember a time in my life when I intentionally tried to do whatever the opposite of my first inclination was, even with unimportant, simple things. Once it was raining when I pulled up at my apartment, so instead of running in I stood there and got soaked. You don't realize how relaxing an outdoor shower is until you aren't running to escape it or complaining about getting wet.
Watch for the next 50 days to be full of a lot of changes. Between now and the end of Rosh Hashanah (September 21–22), which is the Jewish New Year, God is aligning you for what is coming in the new year. You will see situations and circumstances suddenly turn around in unusual and unexpected ways. The spiritual atmosphere is changing and what was once difficult will become easier. I heard the Lord say, "What looks like a loss will become your gain. Be sure to wait and watch as new doors and opportunities begin to open for you." Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 NIV
I was listening a short while ago at an Evangelist share the Gospel according to his perspective. He spoke for a while and towards the end of his time he started to share about this movie that God is going to show to everyone. He spoke how everyone would get to see all the bad things we did both in public and in private. I must admit that as I listened to him I felt a blanket of shame attempt to cover the whole of my being. So strong was the feeling that it made me shift my position on my seat. As I turned off the TV I began to contemplate what I had just heard. I began to recall how I once long ago subscribed to this very heavenly movie theatre experience and perspective. Yet today what I once vociferously supported, didn't quite sit the right way within me.
I was scrolling through Facebook today, and one of my friends posted that 95 percent of prophecy doesn't talk about the future. His thoughts, which are slightly edited for clarity, follow: "95 percent of prophecy isn't about the future. It's about encouraging, comforting, and exhorting people in their current situations. Of course, if people receive prophetic words, their future will be much brighter!" In my ministry, I give about three personal prophecies per day. What I have been finding is that Jesus wants to speak to a person about what He likes about them now and what He is happy with about their character right now. The Lord will gloss over what has been prophesied about their future by other prophetic people, but He will focus on the here and now and what He likes about that.
