So often in life we strive and are so consumed with figuring God out that our urgency and anxiety actually causes us to miss him. For example over the years I have spent many quiet times in the mornings doing anything and everything but being quiet. During these times my prayers have been noble and centered on the usual requests for things and ways in which I wanted God to show up and show me, yet all I heard was silence. For some years now I have chosen to spend more of my time silent. You see, remaining quiet has helped me to center myself and be present and most importantly aware of what he wants to do with and in me on any given moment. It has helped me to relax my perspective and shift my attention to begin to understand which is the language that God uses most of the time he speaks to us.
The Lord spoke to me recently that He is uncovering the "hiding places" of the enemy. I had a vision and I saw Jesus moving into different areas in the lives of believers and different circumstances and He was carrying a torch and shining the light on those areas and suddenly the enemy was being exposed. As He held the torch I heard two Scriptures: "But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, he will unveil the reality of every truth within you. He won't speak His own message, but only what He hears from the Father, and He will reveal prophetically to you what is to come." - John 16:13 (The Passion Translation) "Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path." - Psalm 119:105 (Christian Standard Bible)
The word "agent" is defined as "a person who acts on behalf of another person or group" and "a person or thing that takes an active role or produces a specified effect" (such as an agent of change). There are agents representing two different kingdoms at work in this world. Whether we realize it or not, there is constant conflict between the kingdom of God and Satan's kingdom, and we are caught in the middle. We may not see the actual spiritual forces battling and competing for the lives of people, but we can see the results. And it is becoming more and more apparent that the forces of evil are controlling more and more people who are yielding to darkness. Those of us in the light are standing out more and more also, as the darkness grows greater, our light, the light of Christ glows as a beacon.
Procrastination is something that we all deal with from time to time.  Some may deal with it more than others.  For some it may be almost a way of life where others may only deal with it periodically.  Either way, procrastination can hold up our progress and delay success.  So, how do we shift from procrastination to acceleration?  It starts by understanding the meaning behind these two words as well as the root of what causes procrastination.  Once we know that, we can develop a plan for our own lives that moves us from a mode of procrastination to a mode of acceleration.
A word brought forth to encourage God's people. Just know that I love you when you come under attack from the enemy know that I take what the enemy is doing against you and turning it around for your good for you know that nothing can harm you or separate you from My love. If you are one with Me and you are hidden within Me, the enemy cannot harm the most precious thing that you have and that is your relationship with Me.  That is the highest commodity that you have, the thing that is most important and valuable to you.
The Lord says I am calling the men and the woman who are mature in their faith to teach, nurture and be mentors to the younger ones. I am calling those of you who know Me, know My ways and have submitted your lives to the call. I am calling those of you to train, encourage and support those who are still on milk. I am looking for those of you who have been delivered from the strongholds of the enemy to strengthen the younger ones of the next generations. Those of you who understand the battle and are ready to serve on the front lines will be strong and do great exploits.
I am here to tell you today that the tables have turned in the seemingly impossible situation that you face right now. The trap that the enemy built to destroy you will be the exact same gallows that God uses to destroy the enemy on your behalf. God is about to humiliate the enemy using the exact situation that the enemy was trying to destroy you with. Even more than that, God is making a display of your blessing as He works all things together for good in your life.
A few nights ago, I had one of those God-infused dreams — a message that God was giving me to give to the body of Christ. This dream, the message, is a little meatier than what I am used to sharing. I believe it is a "current state of the church" message, a warning to the church and a message of guidance and hope for the body of Christ. But first, I am reminded why God gives us dreams, correction, edification, and guidance. The reason is summed up right here: "Whom we preach, warning everyone and teaching everyone in all wisdom, so that we may present them perfect in Christ Jesus" (Col. 1:28).
Despite the nightmare I woke up with on Saturday, that I had gotten the wrong day for Easter dinner and was completely unprepared for the 10 people who would sit around my table, I did manage to get to the store on the correct day and buy all the fixins for our family dinner. Except after shopping, I realized I had forgotten one of the most important elements for our dinner table: Jell-O.
We are entering a season of acceleration. People are seeking answers and we must be ready to share with them why we believe in God's plan of Salvation. In our day, we have chaos that is shaking our landscape. I know God is the answer. This morning I received this message from the Lord through a dream.
