Have you ever stood in the ocean, out past where the waves break? Maybe talking with a friend or spouse as the waves come against you - sometimes lifting you just a bit off the sandy bottom? When you take the time to glance back at the shore you are suddenly looking at unfamiliar territory. While the waves visibly came against you, an unseen current pulled you from the place you once stood.
In life we sometimes feel anchored in a place that we want to move from, yet do not know how we are to arrive at the destination we desire. On occasion we may even try to force it, much like trying to go against the breaking point of the waves just to arrive sooner. One after the other, they pound against us relentlessly... every step forward costing us several steps back.
We need to be able to take our focus off of where we think we should be - allowing ourselves to engage with those around us and possibly even help them get past the battle against the waves as well. In God's timing, we will look around and suddenly see that our surroundings have in fact changed and we are in a new place, a place we have longed to walk into.
Allow God to move you... step into the current of His living water, ride the waves as His power allows you to move effortlessly... He promises to deliver you safely to a place where you can firmly plant your feet and stand in the destiny of your dreams.
Last year the Lord gave me a vision of His people being moved to a destination further up the shoreline - not by their own efforts, but by His power alone. I am also sharing from personal experience as well. My husband, Marty, and I have always longed to reach the destination of our dreams and desires. The more we have tried to get there, the harder we fought against the many obstacles that came against us. It was only when we finally let go of our need to control the when, where and how - and allowed God to move us, in His timing, His direction and His specific way, that we effortlessly arrived. We are now standing in new territory, a land full of promise and we are enjoying the blessings of the place we now stand.
Our journey is continuous - we know eventually we will move further in the direction He has chosen for us, but we have surrendered ourselves to His power to get us from where we are to where we eventually need to be. Rest in Him, ride the wave, allow His power to move you.
“I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power” Ephesians 1:19 NLT
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 NLT
“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. Which do you choose?" 1 Corinthians 4:20-21 NLT

When we invite God into our lives, surrendering all power to Him in our circumstances... He will always bring VICTORY to us. He promises to turn every situation that comes against us into something good and beneficial in our lives. Think about the many areas of your life that you could invite God into... your finances, your health, your marriage. Have faith as you turn each one over to Him that YOU WILL HAVE VICTORY in all things.
Allow God's hand to work on your behalf and know that His way & His timing is best for you. Continue to speak truth and life into your areas of need... then be still and allow God to fight for you.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.””
Exodus 14:14 NIV

I recently had a vision of being in labor and delivery. There was a sense of exhaustion, they were wanting to give up and asking for a different way to get the baby. But the doctor kept saying, “It’s push time! Push! Push! PUSH!!!!!”
You HAVE to go through the Push!
There have been a lot of difficult things you have dealt with, but your promise is after this difficult push! Don’t quit now! You’ve come so far! Speak to that doubt and tell it to flee!
You will never forget this difficult push but you will be so overwhelmed by the holding of that promise, all the pain from the past will no longer feel painful, but covered over and filled with gratitude.
“Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?" says the LORD. "Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?" says your God.” (Isaiah 66:9)
The enemy’s attempts to tip the scales of justice in his favor has been and will be unsuccessful. I decree and declare that the gavel of Justice fall in favor of all that have been contending and battling in unfavorable circumstances. All wrongs will be righted. Payback is coming! Payback for all the worry, hurt, tears and lost time! Payback for unjust disbursements and unjust possessions. A divine reversal is coming! Expect the unexpected miracles to turn it ALL into your favor, Child of God!
You’ve been wondering why life has been so hard on you. I’m here to tell you the purpose on your life is so well known in the enemy’s camp, they have been unleashing hell against you since you took your first breath. They know what’s coming now that you have stepped into your identity. Every attack, every attempt to trip you up - take them as solid confirmations of the new level Heaven has you walking in.
It is in our darkest hour that our purpose is birthed. Yet our pre-destined purpose has nothing to do with us; but everything to do with giving glory to God as we display His hand on our lives. We do this so that others may see His light, which in turn ignites a fire within them to carry a torch that ultimately leads others out of darkness.

I felt pressed to encourage those frustrated in the process.
Remember that our “Suddenlies” here on Earth are the manifestations of Heavenly Processes. Welcome with gratitude the processes just as you would the gifts. We have to go through the processes so that when we receive, we are proper stewards of them. We cannot mishandle or misrepresent Heaven here on this earth. We are called to heal not hurt, lift up not tear down, bring in not push out. He has you in His hands. Let Him & His purpose unfold.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under Heaven......He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Ecc. 3:1, 11
