I heard the Lord Say, "Be patient, your nation is having major heart surgery. Stay in the waiting room and pray." I remember when my mother had major bypass heart surgery in her seventies. The doctors came to us in the waiting area and told us these words, "Because of what she just went through, she's not going to look very good to you, but she looks great to us!" I sense the Lord saying, "Be patient with your nation, and remember I am not a Republican or Democrat, I AM that I AM. I AM working on a whole nation and everyone is a work in process. Don't judge, for I AM not finished working on anyone.
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying I am getting ready to expand your reach. I am increasing your influence. I am anointing your words with authority. It is time for My Apostles and Prophets to come forth with power! What you spoke of the last season and didn't manifest will come forth in this season. I have given you marching orders. It is time to use your words to bring forth the manifestation of what I have called you to do.
Last night I had a powerful encounter with an angel and as I came out of this experience I was aware of an invitation and strong exhortation being extended to God's people from Deuteronomy 30. I heard the words, "Tell My people to choose life!" I was immediately aware of an "old familiar" spirit of death that had visited me many years ago that has been alluring people into hopeless despair. The Spirit of the Lord is calling you to walk away from the threshold of the enemy's trap that will kill, steal and destroy all that God has for you.
Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little. Isaiah 28:9-10 Enlighten means to impart knowledge or to shed light on something, intellectually or spiritually. God has been about enlightening mankind since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden over 6000 years ago. Ultimately, this enlightening will bring about the restitution of all things (see Acts 3:21).
The Father is raising up Deborah's and Esther's together for the advancement of His Kingdom. What they could not do on their own, they will be more than able to do and accomplish together. The one will help to empower the other because the promises of God bind them together. And the Holy Spirit will set them out as the Father so wills and purposes. He's had His eye on His Deborah's and Esther's for a long while now. He's calling them His dynamic duo because their impact is greater together.
There are days I wonder how I am having an impact in this world. The vast amount of suffering and pain is almost immobilizing to a heart that cares about it. Where do I even start? It starts right where I am. Many world-changers never grow into their own shoes because the problems they hear about solving are a continent away. When in reality, tragedy lives next-door. There are days I wonder how I am having an impact in this world. The vast amount of suffering and pain is almost immobilizing to a heart that cares about it. Where do I even start?
Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Psalms 24:8-9 The Earth is the Lord's and there is none higher than He! He is crowned with honor and grace. He has a name above all names, and every person ever born will ultimately bow their knee to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Their confession will be made known before men, for He is the essence of magnificence and splendor. He is the Beautiful one; there is no one higher.
There was once a ward in a hospital with extremely handicapped people in it. These people were sent there as they were unable to communicate or even function properly in society. They were the product of extreme mental trauma suffered at the hands of others either from childhood or in adulthood. The hospital where the ward was located had tried everything they knew to help these people recover but not much progress was made over the years. The patients were mainly sedated most of the day and lived isolated and lonely lives. One day a new doctor was hired to lead the department.
Before the beginning of what has ever existed, God decided His strategy. The Lord's strategy remains from the beginning - for mankind to be in a fulfilling and fruitful relationship with Him. Although living beings surrounded the throne and various ranks of angels filled Heaven and the universe, God purposed to have a people for Himself who could freely love and willingly serve Him (Revelation 5:8-11). God's intent was that human beings would intimately relate and completely follow Him by honoring His workmanship in and with them.
Skylar, 16, was overwhelmed with the scattered papers she had to clean from the sewing machine table before her beau arrived to court her. Her grandmother handed her a piece of paper at the bottom of the stack and told her: "This is the secret to a long marriage." "But it is just a ripped page from your cookbook," Skylar said. Her grandmother bent down and whispered in her right ear: "Look closer." She did exactly that, and found one topic…Preserves. The two walked to the rose garden and the elderly woman got down on all fours and started to dig a hole – shallow, and long. Skylar watched and soon saw jars and jars of peach preserves.
