Happy New Year, Everyone!!!
I pray that instead of coming up with resolutions you choose to stand with resolve. A steadfastness and determination to step forward intentionally into everything the Lord is calling you to and in your speaking; weighing every single word. Your penitent posture will carry you further and deeper in the very authority placed upon your shoulders.
I speak blessings over you as you step into 2023. You are blessed going in, you are blessed going out. Everything you set your hands to spring forth abundance! May the Lord bless you, keep you, may His Face shine upon you and give you Peace.
All of the turbulence you’ve been experiencing has been the Hand of God separating the wheat and the tares. Our wheat can’t stand tall or strong if it’s surrounded by weeds that rob it of its nutrients and stunt its growth. It was fine for a moment but now is the time for the separation.
This separation is not simply Good vs. Evil; although that is happening. More importantly is that God has been and is continuing to separate the religious from the Remnant within each of us personally and around us corporately. We cannot look at things corporately before we take a look at ourselves personally. Have you asked The Lord to pull the tares from your own thoughts, emotions and/or “churchy” habitual-rituals? If our wheat (who we are called to be) is riddled with weeds and tares than purity cannot flow and our crop is corrupted. In this hour, our posture on an altar is where His Glory is hitting; not the spotlight of human affirmation and adoration.
Only ask for it if you’re really going mean it because it will be uncomfortable and it will cut. Don’t invite the separation if all you’re going to do is whine about it and blame the enemy. Just sayin’.
Holy Father, we sit down in the quiet moment of time and invite You and your hand to come in to remove all the tares that are choking out and hindering our growth and function. Lord, we desperately desire to walk fully in all you have called us to; the very purpose you set upon our lives and we want to walk in the fullness of that unhindered. We lay everything down on this altar for Your fire to fall on it; remove everything that You haven’t anointed for this moment of time. In Jesus Name, Amen!
I also pray that whatever pain many of you are experiencing; you feel His loving and healing arms wrap around you right now. I bless you in the Name of Jesus, on your altar, in your healing, the work you set your hands to and in all your successes! May the Lord bless you, keep you and may His face shine upon you and give you peace.
We cannot ask God for all things to be new and then expect His New to fit into our old. The God of Creation does not bend His knee or His plans into our finite wishes or demands.
““This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:9-10 (NIV)
When we pray for His Kingdom to come, pray then get out of the way and make room for His Will to be done; not ours.
The beginning of this New Era is shaking us all and is uncomfortable. Let it come; you’ll be glad you did. What is swiftly coming, only in this posture are you able to receive.
I speak protection and peace over each one of you in this moment. I also bless you in your surrender and receiving of all God has for you now and in the days to come.
Stop being so futuristically focused you’re no presently good. YES, dream! YES, plan! BUT, steward the NOW so you are able and prepared to steward the future!
Embrace the Creator and rest in all the unknown by realizing His answers don’t usually come in the way we think they will. That way of thinking and believing will throw you into battles of disappointment and hope-deferred. He ALWAYS fulfills His Word and purpose in and through your life. Tear down the boxes and let God be God!
I know it’s easier said than done, but once we lay down our plans and ideas, we see the beauty of all God is laying out before us
