Have you ever noticed that when we are in conversation about something that happened expectantly — or totally caught you off guard — and you are relating it to someone, they always say, WHY?
Quite sometime ago, I had a teacher who used to say, ‘We don’t have a passport to the land of WHY!”
I have found it to be true, that The LORD does not always reveal the — why….
I also have come to understand that He has “a time for everything”,
A while back , The LORD gave me an unexpected surprise by opening up the eyes of my heart and giving me an understanding of why He took me back to my hometown, after answering His call to go to The Nations.
After all, I said I would go wherever He sent me — but somehow we seem to think ‘send me somewhere important to do something important'”
I never planned to return to where where it all began. After all, I was expecting to keep on going to The Nations, having traveled 16 different nations for missions.
He sure gave me some missing pieces of the puzzle of what and why when He said, “I AM giving you an Intercessory Assignment to pray for your Region, because you were part of the beginning outpouring, and you witnessed the spirit of division that came in to destroy unity.”
He gave me an overview at first, and as I obeyed His lead, I began to get more and more understanding.
Have you noticed He likes to give us one piece at a time — or as a friend of mine says — He gives you a taste to make you want more.
My why was answered quickly on that one. He simply said, “I lead you one step at a time, because you can only take but one step at a time, as you more forward.”
And so, as I followed His lead, I broke into the full understanding of “why me” and I really began to see “the big picture” through His Eyes.
His Plans are so much bigger than ours, and His Ways are not our ways. His love is so amazing, and His Goodness never ends.
He is moving behind the scenes, bringing order out of chaos and shifting, sifting and positioning right now in the nations. He is taking care of all the details that concern us — to take back America and The Nations.
Along with the changing of the guard and changing of garments, The LORD is always also changing mindsets, to be fixed and focused on Truth. As I penned this today, He took me back in time to an event in March 2019.
Earlier, at the end of January that year, He had spoken to me that I would get new marching orders in March and said, “I will begin to cause you to march forward according to My Plan, just as you have prayed.”
But I did not grasp the fullness of what that meant, until He began to preempt ‘my plans’ and take me full circle to where my spirit-filled walk with Him actually all began in the early Charismatic Movement that broke out in Knoxville, Tennessee where I grew up. That amazing outpouring of The Holy Spirit impacted the whole region.
Just as I said earlier, I had no plans to return to Knoxville, Tn but I did. One evening while serving as an Advisor to the Oak Ridge Aglow chapter, I received a call and an invitation to travel to an Aglow Southeast Conference and I would have to leave in less than 24 hours.
The theme for that weekend was “FULLNESS!” I can tell you that we were completely and totally In His Presence, and there was true Fullness of Joy.
While there, He then opened up the eyes of my heart, and He gave me a deeper understanding of the region and the strongholds that were operating there.
I sense that many who are reading this at this moment, are about to take some sharp turns that put you on the right path for His Kingdom Purposes to be carried out for a Great Awakening.
He said, “Give My Chosen Ones a warning, that some will stubbornly say, “That couldn’t be for me — because this is the place where I grew up, and this is where He surely wants me!”
Wherever that might be! But The LORD is coming to say, “Beloved, your whole world can change in an instant. Write it on your heart that changes take place every day, and I Alone AM the master and the true Change Agent.
I AM healing broken relationships and divided families. I AM shining My Light of Conviction into hearts to allow their selfish desires to be put on the back burner.
I ask, are you willing to Love as I Love — and prefer others?
Know that Unconditional Love only flows from My Heart to yours, and what the world needs now is Love, Love, Love.
Paint that picture on your heart for all the world to see. So, silence the voice of self, and open your heart to the New Day.
Many could not see what was coming, because of the hardness of their hearts.
No one expected the corruption and dominion of the spirit of control, but I AM opening a new path for the new day,” says The LORD God.
“So, beloved,” I hear His Voice say, “Receive now this Truth as a Corporate Word for The Body of Christ as you declare to The LORD today, “Where you lead me, I will follow, for you are making the crooked paths straight.”
I have already spoken to you that I AM building a Highway of Holiness!”
There are many ways The LORD opens the eyes of our hearts and gives us understanding, and I want to give you some insight into a couple of other places where that happens.
Many times, a trauma is created when we view a situation with our physical eyes — instead of our spiritual eyes — and the key to bring healing to that trauma, is to view through our spirit instead of our flesh.
So, take care not to view the traumatic situations through the physical eyes, for that is what gives an open door to the spirit of fear — because we fear death.
In reality, when our emotions get involved with the spirit of fear, that can create what many Deliverance Ministers refer to as “a crack in the soul,” and if left unhealed, it can open the door to demonic oppression.
When that happens, that person must be healed of the memory when that traumatic incident occurred.
The LORD is saying, “The trauma and drama has been going on for so long, that My People have accepted it as norm, and their senses have become dull.
But I AM opening the door of deep healing, as I open the eyes of your understanding in your spirit to Truth, that will wipe away the trauma and infuse you with My Vision for you.
It is the hour of power to destroy the lie you have believed, and close every door to the spirit of deception,” says The One Who is Truth.
The key to having the trauma healed completely, is when The Holy Spirit takes us back to the entrance of that fear and trauma, and He opens the eyes of our spirit and shows us The Truth.
Then He overwrites the trauma (lie we believed) with Truth — so once again, we are awakened to Truth when we see with our “real eyes” which are indeed the eyes of The Spirit.
In the Deliverance Healing Ministry, it is important to close every door where the enemy has had access.
The LORD gives us His promise in Ephesians”
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened…” Ephesians 1:17-18a
He is moving and putting every road sign up for those who are willing and obedient to march to the tune of a different drummer.
“Beloved, hear My Heart, this is not just a small change, but many large and small changes, for the Divine Exchange has a provision for every needed change.
The release for financial change — as well as alignment and assignment change — is being released now,” says the Father. “Your previous paths have brought forth setups and upgrades for the preparation of The Bride of Christ.
For truly this is a time for the fulfillment of My Word,” says The LORD.
“I wish — above all things — that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. (3 John 1:2).
Receive it now in your mind, believe it in your heart and rejoice that Prosperity and Healing have come, and fullness of time is knocking at the door. Open the door and receive — fulfillment is here!
You shall come to a greater Understanding and Healing of your soul in this set aside time of coming to the knowledge of The Truth. For I AM uncovering the deception that brought forth the soul struggles and lack of understanding. Yes, a heart change will bring understanding!
And I say to you, even as Jeremiah the prophet asked in Jeremiah 8, ‘Is there no balm in Gilead when Judah had turned away from God and ignored the warnings?’ you shall know I AM the only balm of Gilead and I AM restoring and healing wounded souls.”
The journey for Truth opens you up to a different path at times, but it is designed to give you a beautiful destination at the end of the journey.
Stop and smell the roses, climb every mountain, take every detour, for that journey for Truth is fully designed to result in new freedom and peace that passes all understanding. There is a purpose for every path.
There are many unexpected surprises on the path of life — No matter what, press on.
Begin to Decree Job 22:27-28 and 3 John 1:2.
“I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2 KJV
“You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows. You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and the light (of God’s favor) will shine upon your ways,” Job 22:27-28 AMPC
“[I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son]. And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by The Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people).” Ephesians 1:17-18 AMP
Beloved, won’t you pray that will me today as I pray that for all of us?
