Last Friday as I was sitting waiting in line at the car wash, I saw a bird walking in the incredible wind that was blowing. As it walked, its feet mostly stayed on the path. The wind was blowing so hard that it was moving its long tail feathers way to the left, yet the bird was able to mostly stay on course. It wavered very little. Its feet moved a little from the straight line, but it stayed the course. It didn't let the fact that its tail was being hit hard by the wind stop it from staying the course. It was as if it kept its focus on the path, the course. It was as if the bird was so focused that he was using the wind to his advantage. I watched as the wind was blowing his tail so hard. He stepped into the direction the wind was blowing his tail and kept on going; he wouldn't be stopped. I knew it was prophetic and that the Lord was going to show me things through this.
The Lord began to speak to me about this. I watched that bird walking mostly steady as the wind was blowing so strong against his tail and yet he stayed focused on the path/the course that he was on. He really wasn't being affected by the force that was trying to come against him. It was as if he was so focused on where he was going that he could not be swayed to move any other direction.
The Lord began to show me that this is exactly how born again children of God need to be. Steadfast, immovable and focused on Him and on the course He has us on. We need to STAY the COURSE. The enemy wants to try to bring the wind of adversity against us and try to blow us and move us off of the path that God has us on. We must keep our focus on the course, the path God has us on and not be moved by the distractions of the enemy. When the enemy tries to blow us off of our path, the course or plan God has for us, God says in His Word in:
Isaiah 59:19 (NKJV) “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the West, and His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”
So if the enemy has tried to come at you, know that the Spirit of the Lord is there. Keep your focus and STAY THE COURSE. Do not allow the enemy, any of his distractions, or any of his attacks, to cause you to go off course, off path. Keep your focus on the path set before you by God. God has already gone ahead of you to prepare the path in front of you. He has already been into your future.
Psalm 139:16 (NIV) “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
How could God have written them down unless He has already been there. The enemy, the devil, wants to try to throw you off course. He wants to get you off the path God has ordained for you. Why? Because he knows who you will be and what you will accomplish walking on the path. The enemy does not want you to fulfill your destiny. We must stay focused and keep our eyes on Jesus. As we do this we will stay on the path He has for us. As we stay focused on Jesus and not the distractions of the enemy, we will stay the course and walk in the days God has ordained for us.
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV) “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Focus, stay the course. The more you focus on God the smaller the things the enemy tries to do look. The more you focus on the things the enemy is trying to do instead of God, the bigger the things the enemy is trying to do look. So let's all agree to keep our focus on Jesus and allow Him to take us wherever He wants to and do whatever He wants to do through us. What an incredible time to be a Child of God. You were created for such a time as this.
God says to you: “Keep your focus with fixed purpose, look straight ahead, stick to the path. Ignore the enemy's distractions. I have you in the palm of My hand. What I have planned and purposed for you I will do. Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked for even a moment. Don't turn to the right or to the left. You will hear My voice behind you telling you which way to go. Stay on path. I have you in My plan. Stay fixed and focused and lean in to Me. There is much I have for you and it is time for you to BE the MOVE
Revelation 3:6 (MSG) “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.”
Revelation 6:22 (MSG) “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Word Winds. The Spirit blowing through the churches.”
The New King James Version of Revelation 3:6 is: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
I love this scripture. I love how The Message Version words this scripture. It makes it more alive to me. What is Holy Spirit saying to the churches? Are your ears awake to what the Spirit of God is saying? You and I make up the church. So, if we make up the church, are we awake to what He is saying? The Spirit of God is speaking to us, the question isn’t just, are our ears awake, but are we listening?
Hearing is one thing, but listening is really paying attention to what you hear. Are our ears awake? We all, as born again children of God, should be listening to what the Spirit of God is saying. We should all have our ears awake. We should be aware and pay close attention to what Holy Spirit is saying.
Every word from God deserves our FULL and TOTAL attention. Our ears need to be awake. We need to pay attention. I am here to tell you that the Spirit of God is speaking to His people. The truth is, He is speaking. The question is, are our ears awake, are we listening? Many are wanting to hear the voice of
God. We want to know His direction for our lives and we want answers. The key is to have our ears AWAKE and to be listening.
Isaiah 30:21 (NIV) “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘this is the way; walk in it.’”
We will hear His voice. Keep your ears awake. It is more important now than ever before to keep our ears awake and listening to His voice. He has so many things that He wants to say to you and me. He has direction, instruction, and secrets to give to you. Get your ears AWAKE!!!!!
We are the church, God is and wants to speak to His church. He wants to speak to you. Hear and listen. Train your ears to hear Him. He is speaking—-and you too will know His Voice before you and behind you! He is the Voice of Promise, the Voice of Purpose, the Eternal, Life Giving Voice, the Voice that will propel you into your destiny, the Voice that will propel you into the NOW WORD of God for you.
ONE WORD FROM THE VOICE OF GOD WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Your ears need to be awake to hear Him. You need to be hearing, listening and perceiving what God is saying now more than ever. His Voice should be so familiar to you and me. Your Father’s voice, your Daddy God’s voice.
Another key is, once you hear, be willing and obey.
Isaiah 1:19 (NKJV) “If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land.”
It isn’t just about obeying, it is about being willing. We truly are in one of the most incredible times ever with the Lord. It is a great time to be alive and living for Jesus. You and I were created for SUCH A TIME AS THIS. I am so excited for what lies ahead and what My Daddy God wants to tell me. My ears are awake and I am listening Lord.
The next key is trusting God. We have already stepped into the greatest move of God the church or world has ever seen. SO, that being said, trust God when HE tells you to do something that has never been done before. Say something, when He tells you, that has never been said before.
Isaiah 43;19 (NKJV) “Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
New means it has never been done before. Get ready people of God. He is doing the NEW. I personally say, “YES LORD, I am willing to be the Pioneer. I trust You.”
I decree “Your ears are awake. Wake up ears.” Let’s hear what Daddy God is saying to us; let’s be willing and obedient, Let's make a decision today and decree, “I will hear Your Voice, I will listen to Your Voice , I am willing Lord, I will be obedient, I will be the Revival, I will be the move.
A.W. Tozer said, “God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity we plan to do the things we can only do by ourselves.”
People of God, we should want God to do the impossible through us. We should allow Him to work through us. He is looking for someone to do the impossible, the supernatural, the incredible. Will you let it be you?
God created you and me to participate with Him, not sit on the sidelines watching someone else do things with Him. He created you and me to be the SUPER in the natural, to be the EXTRA in the ordinary. You and I are not waiting on God to move, He is waiting on you and me. It is God’s desire for man to come into partnership with Him. You were created for God, to work and move with Him. Here is a revelation for you, you were created to work WITH God not for Him.
God wants and desires to take you out of your comfort zone because He wants you to do things, He wants to do things through you. He wants to blow your mind and wow you. Faith will move you out of your comfort zone, but it will open up the portals over your life. I would
like to add something right here that is important, “You can't trust and believe someone if you don't have a relationship with that person. You need a relationship with your Daddy God. God wants to reveal Himself to you so you can see who you truly are. If you truly don't know your Daddy God, you don't truly know yourself, because you are like God.
Colossians 3:1-4 (NKJV) “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Walking with God on earth is effortless. I John 4:17b (NKJV) “because as He is, so are we in this world.”
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image: in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” This is why it is effortless, because as He is, so are we in this world and because we were created in His image. John 14;12 (NKJV)“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the work that I do he will do also ; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to My Father.” This is Jesus talking here. We all know the impossible things that Jesus did. Jesus turned water into wine, healed lepers, raised the dead, opened blind
eyes, and so much more. Here He is telling us we will do greater things than He did. He desires and wants to do the impossible through you.
Prophetically speaking we have stepped into a season of signs, wonders, and miracles like we have never seen before. And God is saying to you; “Will you allow Me to do the impossible through you? Will you trust Me? Will you work with Me? Will you be Me to the world?”
To those of you whose hearts are on fire, God is saying to you, “There is more and then EVEN MORE !!!!!” To those of you who have just begun and the fire has just started, God is saying, “Trust Me, there is so much more. You have just gotten your feet wet. It is time to wade deeper.”
Mark 9: 23 (NKJV) “Jesus said to them,”If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Philippians 4:13 (ESV) “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
Ephesians 3:20 (ESV) “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, according to the power at work in us.”
Catch it Hearts on Fire: With God, you can do it, nothing is impossible, according to the power at work in you, if you believe. It is TIME to believe, to work with God and let Him do the impossible with you and through you.
It is NOW THE SEASON OF THE IMPOSSIBLE. IT IS A SEASON TO SEE GREATER THAN WE HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE.
Say YES and allow your DADDY GOD to do the impossible through you. Yield people of God and let's all work with God to change this world. Let's all shift atmospheres and impact this world all for the glory of God.
God says to you, “Awake My people, awake My Church and be the move, be the change, be the breakthrough.”
Many today have allowed their dreams to wane away or go dormant. Many have given up on their dreams, even those given to you by God. Many have felt the things they have longed for, for years, will never happen. But God!!!!!! When in reality, I believe God is wanting to awaken those dreams. God has put dreams in-side of you that you have put on the back burner or given up on, but God is awakening those dreams in this upcoming season.
You need to prepare yourself for your dreams to come ALIVE!
Let’s look at Scripture:
Ezekiel 37:3 (KJV) “And He said to me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ And I answered, ‘oh Lord God, thou knowest.’”
God asked Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” In other words, is it possible for God to revive and restore what has been dead and lifeless. Can what has been long forgotten about for many years live again? My answer to you is “YES”.
Have you ever wondered if your dreams will ever become a real-ity? Have you asked yourself, “Is this dream from God or my own idea?”
Scripture says in
Psalms 37:4 (NKJV) “Delight yourselves in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
My husband and I believe that this scripture has two meanings. First, God places those desires (some might call them dreams) in
our hearts. Second, He then fulfills those desires and gives them to us. He places those desires into our hearts so He can then fill/ fulfill them. So, I believe the dreams we carry have been given to us by God. The dreams we carry become desires, desires that God will then fill/fulfill.
God is saying to you today, “DREAMS LIVE AGAIN. DREAMS WAKE UP. I am going to fulfill your dreams.”
So, if you have asked yourself or God, “Can my dreams live again?” The Answer is, “YES”.
When God’s power, God’s breath, breathes on you and into your dreams and desires, they live again. It is never too late to accom-plish that dream, that desire that God has put into you. It is not too late for it to be birthed.
When God asked Ezekiel, “Can these bones live?” Ezekiel re-sponded, “O Lord God thou knowest.”
In the face of what seems like impossible odds, God’s Word can and will restore and revive dead dreams. Once God places those dreams/desires in us, to God they are still there. We are the ones who think they have died and let them die. We are the ones who give up hope and give up on those dreams.
God is the ultimate Architect and Builder. Only God can breathe life into old/dead mantles, old/dead dreams and make them new and alive again.
Seek God. Follow His voice concerning His plans for you and His dreams for you. He is the one who leads your destiny and holds your future in His hands. Oh, what better hands to have your fu-ture in than your Daddy God’s! It is God who breathes His Spirit into old things, dead things and makes them NEW again and makes them ALIVE again.
Submit to God and allow Him right now to breathe on you. Allow Him to breathe into your dreams again. Ask Him to breathe on the mantles that are upon you. Allow Him to breathe into you, into the giftings inside you and the upon the call that is on your life. Right where you are, yield to Him, surrender those dreams, relax and as HE breathes into you and on you, take a deep breath and breathe in His breath. Let those dreams, desires, giftings, mantles and calls come ALIVE AGAIN.
Let’s pray. Oh Lord, we receive breath right now. We receive Your life into the dead things. We receive Your breath now as You breathe into us. Breathe Lord Breathe!!!!!
I decree DREAMS LIVE AGAIN!!!!!!!! I decree HOPE LIVE AGAIN. DESIRES LIVE AGAIN. Mantles come ALIVE AGAIN!!!!
To all of those who have hearts that are on fire, I want to share this with you.
I had a vision from Heaven between one and two weeks ago. The Lord is releasing me to share it now, and this is what I saw:
I saw the Lion of the tribe of Judah and He was roaring over you, and as He roared fire came out of His mouth. This roar and this fire drove out and burned up everything that was holding you back and attacking you. This roar and this fire burned up everything that was trying to stop you from moving forward.
Let’s look at a few scriptures.
Amos 3:8 “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the Prophets. The Lion has roared—- who will not fear? The Sovereign Lord has spoken—-who can but prophesy?”
Isaiah 31:4 “This is what the LORD says to me. “ As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey,and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor, so the LORD Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights.”
Revelation 5:5 “But one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
Lessons in the Natural: The Roar of the Lion and its Power
Studies have shown that a lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles away, reaching up to 114 decibels. The lion has the loudest roar of any big cat. That roar announces the presence of the king of the beasts. It leaves no doubt in the minds of every other living creature that the king is present.
Not only does a lion’s roar mark out the boundaries of its territory, but it can also be a rallying point for straying members of its tribe. This has amazing prophetic implications and meanings, especially when you tie it to the vision I had.
The Lord is signifying that great CHANGE IS COMING INTO YOUR LIFE, no more being held back and no more attacks that try to stop you from moving forward.
Lessons in the Spiritual: The Roar of the Lion and its Power
The Great Reformation of the Church many years ago had the phrase “Let the Lion Roar.” It was a statement made by significant Church leaders.When the Lion roared many years ago, it came during a time of great disillusionment and was used to bring forth great hope and new life.
If a lion in the natural can roar and be heard for up to five miles, can you imagine what the ROAR OF THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH SOUNDS LIKE and how far that sound will go?
Listen for the ROAR. Feel His fire.
We are seeing the beginning of the Third Great Awakening, and you and I were born “for such a time as this.”
The Lion of the tribe of Judah is ROARING over your lives and releasing HIs fire. He is releasing the ROAR to set you free, to stop the attacks that have tried to stop you from moving forward and this ROAR is so strong that the frequency of it will project you forward into your destiny.
Let Him ROAR over you today and begin your new life with Him. Let Him release HIs fire over you to set you ablaze.
ROAR LORD ROAR!!!!!!! RELEASE YOUR FIRE LORD!!!!!
Do you want to stay stuck? Or will you let the Lion of the tribe of Judah ROAR over you and break the chains and release you?
My thought for my life is this, my Daddy God knows what is best for me and has the absolute best for me. I do not want anything to hold me back, so I say for my life, “ROAR LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH ROAR, RELEASE YOUR FIRE OVER MY LIFE!!!!
New time, new season, new wine!!! You were created for such a time as this!!! So for those of you with hearts on fire, let Him release His roar and His fire over you. - Jennifer Peikert, Declaring the Truth Ministries
