There are so many people out there who have a desire to obey God, they hear a call from God, but then when they step out to obey, it seems like all hell breaks loose and then they’re like… “Did I miss God? Am I out of God’s will?”
You cannot use how well/bad things are going in your life be your determining factor for whether or not you heard God correctly and are in His will. If you do, you’ll be all over the place all the time.
The truth is that sometimes when you’re obeying God, bad things still happen. Sometimes the bad things are just part of life, and God allows us solve the problems so we’re smarter and wiser. Sometimes the bad things are the enemy attacking our calling and trying to cause us to give up. EITHER WAY, God can use problems and cause them to bless you. So it’s a win win, really, when you push through and keep on doing what God called you to do.
So how do you know if you’re in God’s will?...
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying that your drought is ending!
It is time to pull your tomorrow into your today. Your future is becoming your now. There is a breakthrough taking place as you read this prophetic word. I see an assembly of angels being dispatched with your miracle.
Begin to receive it in the name of Jesus!
He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. -John 21:6
What was stuck is no longer stuck! Things are shifting swiftly over you! Even the angel Swift has been dispatched to bring your breakthrough wherever you are! It didn’t work one way but as you try things a different way as the Spirit leads you, you will see tremendous fruit.
The angels of God are gathering over you and they are over your house, your family, your bank, your accounts, and your finances. They are standing at the door of your house!
So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. -1 Corinthians 14:15
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “There is a miracle in the melody.” All we really need in this season is spiritual song on our lips. When we sing in the Spirit, our worship rises to God and His glory descends. When the glory is present miracles begin to manifest. There have been moments where God met me in the melody. His Spirit overwhelmed me. His power touched my life and branded me with His fire.
For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. -1 Corinthians 14:2
When I pray, or sing in tongues, I have no idea what I am saying. All I know is that I am uttering mysteries by the Spirit of God. I am praying His perfect will for my life. I don’t anything that is...
You cannot go into the next season of your life guarding the wounds of your past.
I believe today the Lord would have me to tell you that He is about to operate on you, should you be willing to climb up on the operating table.
This is the word He gave me to release today, and while I believe it is a corporate word for the Body, test this word and see if it is a now word for your life.
I hear the Lord saying, “There are deep wounds from the past that I am about to heal in this season. Some of these wounds you have literally forgotten how you got them, as a coping mechanism.”
Picture this with me. Picture a septic wound. You can look from the outside and tell that underneath is something really bad. It appears to have infection inside. The skin is discolored and feverish to the touch because inside is a painful secret.
You could put clothes on top of this terrible infected area and walk around as if nothing is wrong, but the second someone tries to give...
Are you wondering why your prophetic word hasn’t come to pass? Here are a few reasons why:
1. You haven’t turned your prophetic word into a goal. Now that you have the revelation from God concerning the direction you are supposed to be headed in, make a plan to get there. Break it down into bite-size goals. There are practical things that need to get done. For example, if you are called to the nations, start with getting your passport. Then make some connections with the people you are called to and begin to build the relationship. Set some dates for your trip.
2. You haven’t created the space in your life for God to move. Are you too busy? That’s a lie. It’s not that you are too busy. It’s that you don’t want to make time to do what it takes to reach your next level. You are comfortable with your life. Complacency and procrastination will kill the productivity you need to create the momentum for your...
The Lord has given me a very sobering Word for the body of Christ concerning this next season. God has your attention now that things have ended the way they have. It reminded me of what happened to the Israelites right before God raised up Gideon:
“When the Israelites cried out to the Lord because of Midian, he sent them a prophet, who said, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians. And I delivered you from the hand of all your oppressors; I drove them out before you and gave you their land. I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.’ But you have not listened to me.” -Judges 6:7-10
The Lord sent a Prophet to the Israelites after He delivered them into the hands of the Midianites (verse 2). He delivered them into the hands of their enemy because they had done wrong in the...
What’s in your tank?
I’ve been in full time ministry for about 12 years now. I’ve made a lot of impact for the Kingdom, but I’ve also made many mistakes along the way.
Mistakes are unavoidable, but I believe that what shows excellence in a leader is that we consistently check ourselves on this one thing I’m writing to you about today.
Anyone who knows me for longer than 10 minutes knows I love a good metaphor. I mean what’s a prophet without metaphors and parables, anyways? We’re like the people with the prophetic parables, right?
Everyone has a ministry for their life, not just preachers, pastors, and missionaries. That’s why the job of the 5-fold offices is to “equip the saints for the working of the ministry” (Eph 4:12)…. You have a calling, and whether you’re in “full time ministry” or not, your calling IS your ministry. The job of the prophet/teacher/evangelist/apostle/pastor is...
God has been calling me to release this message, “Come out of the prayer closet” for some time. I have been resisting it a little. That hasn’t went well for me. So here we are.
This is the message that God has called me to release to the Church:
“It’s time to come out of the prayer closet. It’s time to be the hands and feet of Jesus. In fact, it’s time to BE Jesus to the world. It’s time to practice love in motion. Love looks like something.
You have to go beyond praying and begin DOING THE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE. Instead of only praying for someone who is in need, see if you are able to help meet that need. Don’t PRAY FOR the hungry. FEED THEM. Don’t just pray for the sick. HEAL THEM. Don’t just pray for the lonely. VISIT WITH THEM. Love them. Listen to them. Be their friend.
It’s time to put your love into action. It’s time to rise up and mobilize together as a BODY that brings Heaven to Earth in a...
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.
In the book of Esther, we read that Haman was an evil guy who was plotting to have all of the Jews killed. Queen Esther’s uncle Mordecai alerts her of Haman’s plan, and she sets a plan into motion. (You can and read the full book of Esther for yourself but I’m going to skim over some highlights just to make a point)
In other news, Haman hated Mordecai and he had a pole built to have Mordecai killed upon. At another part of the story, the king had asked Haman how to celebrate...
Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. Psalm 35:27 AMP
I hear the Spirit of the Lord declaring over you today that it is His great pleasure to prosper His servants. You are His servant. You belong to Him. You are His child. Where there has been a lack there shall be plenty. What was missing will be found. What was broken will be mended. Where there has been the division I am releasing My multiplication power right now! No weapon formed against you shall prosper! My right hand is extended toward you and I will raise you up to do that which I have called you to.
I am creating a way where there was no way. Where there was a delay I will come through for you. I am doing it now for you says God. For I am the Lord your God and I am faithful. In this coming season, you will know the riches of My...
