We will see a lot of positive changes this year, as 2013 marks the beginning of an entirely new way to function. God is releasing unlimited potential for those who are ready to move forward.
Sudden good breaks
“Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around” Proverbs 13:12 MSG.
Get ready for “sudden good breaks” and the end of a season of disappointments. This is a time of “suddenness” and quick radical turnarounds. It will require changing the way we think and taking action.
Clean out the old ways and make room for the new. Don’t be surprised if you begin to see a new way to do what you do. Stepping back from your situation will help.
“You have sought me and now act on what I am telling you. Trust your spiritual instincts.” This is a time in which you will hear clamoring around you. But listen deep inside to the Holy Spirit speaking to you. This is a time to learn as you go, and you have to enter the race to win! Take practical steps and listen to peace in your heart.
“… but with God all things are possible” Matthew 19:26 NIV.
Joseph anointing increasing
This year we will see many people who have a “Joseph anointing” begin to come on the scene. This is similar to the Jewish patriarch Joseph (Genesis 37–41) who interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams and gave prophetic words that set up a huge financial blessing and far-reaching provision during a famine. These “Joseph people” (men and women) will release prophetic insight and financial blessing into the Kingdom of God.
In 2007 God spoke to me that we were entering into a new seven-year season. Similar to the life of Joseph, people who are called to move in this new anointing from God will go through rejection and turmoil. In 2012 the “Joseph people” started coming alive and began to be released from their prisons of rejection and being forgotten. In 2013 they will begin to rise up in various areas of influence in society.
First quarter prophetic forecast
Watch for subtle changes in how you think. God is drawing us to a new level of “all things are possible for those who believe” mentality. He is revealing areas where we limit not only ourselves but also God’s power from flowing through us.
This is a time to take action and move toward new things that God is revealing. Some old prophetic promises and dreams are now being updated. God will show you what is for now, what is for later and what is no longer valid. Watch as fogginess, wilderness and spiritual winter times begin to diminish. New strength and drive will come to you.
This will be when things start to spring into action with what God is revealing and calling you to. Take practical steps and stay steady. It will benefit you to create a plan of action “as faith without works is dead” James 2:20 (NKJV).
Fear and cursing
Two dark forces of fear and cursing have come against people. These two demonic attacks will only lose their grip as we rise above with the opposite spirit from God. As we trust God instead of being fearful and bless people instead cursing them, we will see a great turnaround in our own lives and the lives of people around us.
Unforgiveness towards leaders
I had a prophetic dream last month that people are cursing leaders who struggle with addictions. Here’s the dream:
I was standing next to a beautiful large body of water and the atmosphere suddenly changed so you could see all the fish underneath. A group of people was on a small bridge praying and worshipping As I got closer, I could hear them praying a prayer that turned into a worship song … the song rhymed, “leaders with addictions, have nothing to do with them.”
I knew they had been wounded by the shortcomings of pastors and leaders. There was smoke or some fragrance from their prayer song but as I walked through, it smelled foul. They thought they were doing the right thing by standing up for justice, but God’s heart is for restoration of these struggling leaders. They did not realize they were actually cursing. But as they prayed, you could no longer see deep into the water and the heavens began to close.
I got this prophetic word regarding the dream: the next move of God depends on all of us and it is important to pray, blessing people who struggle. Remember when a woman was caught in adultery Jesus said, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (John 8:7). Jesus is saying that now. It is time to give up our grievances against those who have hurt us. We don’t have to agree with what they did but forgiveness will open the heavens over our life.
Dream: I can list
I had a dream last month that I had so many things to do and I was feeling overwhelmed. I cried out to God saying “I can’t!” God spoke to me in the dream that I must create an “I CAN” list. So I have written down a new list of what I can do with God. It is exciting!
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” Romans 12:2 (NIV).
This is a time to transform our thinking to line up with God’s unlimited power! I can and so can you!
I am excited for God’s direction this year and am looking forward to see how our lives will be changed with unlimited thinking! My prayer is that we would see where we are limiting ourselves and God so that we can take strong steps with a plan of action.
Watching for my sudden good break!
