Daily prophecy for April, 2021, republished with the kind permission of the Global Prophetic Alliance. Every Monday — Friday.
30 April 2021. Courage and Conviction
“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:10-12 NIV.
I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “Do not fear persecution when it comes, but rather, choose now how you’ll stand. Stand back and look at the host of righteous believers who has gone before you. Many, many were persecuted for my sake. Many have suffered because they stood for Me. Great is their reward!
These are days that require conviction and courage. Hold true to My Word. Know My Voice! Keep your eyes securely set on Me! Do not waver! Let Me give you the sight you need to see the big picture. See to the very end when you will stand before Me and give an account for how you lived your life. Seek the King upon the throne — the One who suffered and gave His life for you. See Him and allow this to be what fuels your courage and conviction in the days ahead.”
Hebrews 12:2-3 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. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
29 April 2021. Learn to Fly!
Have you ever watched when a mother bird starts prompting her young to leave the nest and take risks as they grow into maturity? She knows that they cannot stay there forever and must learn to fend for themselves and fly.
The LORD also desires you to grow up into Christ and to not settle back into your cosey nest where spiritual milk was delivered to you. In the past months, The LORD has stirred up many comfort zones, and He now prompts you to fly. Your life was created by The LORD for flying from that nest and then parenting new eagles yourself. Take the risks that He has urged you to consider and learn to fly!
Activation: As you praise The LORD for what He has done in bringing you to this point, tell Him that you lay down any desires to remain in the familiarity of your spiritual nest. Ask Him what dreams He has for you as you seek to mature further.
Colossians 1:9-10 NIV “And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of The LORD, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
Hebrews 6:1 NIV “Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God.”
28 April 2021. Throw It Off!
“You called, and I heard you as I always hear you. I always respond to your call, and I AM here. I have not passed you by. You do not have to strive for My Attention. You have My full Attention. You do not have to plead for it. You do not have to approach me uncertain of My Response, unsure if I will be angry or pleased to see you.
Today, throw off that beggar’s cloak you have been wearing. Discard what would keep you begging under the table for the crumbs that fall. Rid yourself what would keep you grovelling in the dirt. You are My treasured Child. You are welcome. You are always welcome; you are highly prized. As you stand before Me, with my full attention fixed on you, lift your head. You do not have to beg. Be bold, be confident. You are my beloved child.
I have all authority and all power. Nothing is too difficult for Me. Nothing is too big. You do not have to put up with scraps. Throw off the small mindsets, the limited thoughts, that keep you dressed in rags. You are My Child, My Heir. You do not have to beg.
What is it that you want? What do you need? What is it that you would ask of Me?”
Activation: Sit with Jesus and ponder the question in Mark 10:51. What is it that you need but have not asked because you didn’t believe you could?
Mark 10:50-51 NIV “Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ Jesus asked him. The blind man said, ‘Rabbi, I want to see.’”
Romans 8:17 NIV “Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
27 April 2021. No Limits
“My Children, everything in this world has a limit. But DO NOT allow the structure of this world to cause you to think there is a limit to ME. I AM the God of NO LIMITS! There is no limit to my love; there is no limit to my giving. There is no limit to me! I break off every conscious or subconscious lie that would tell you that I fit into a denomination, a box, or an ideology. Let this mindset of no limits transform what you ask and what you believe me to do for I desire to do the ‘impossible’ in your midst. I AM breaking off limitations!”
Activation: Take the time today to ask the Holy Spirit to show you if there is any place where you have limited God rather than seeing Him as He truly is — Creator of the universe with whom all things are possible. And then agree with His Word and come into partnership with Him by declaring this Lion Bite over yourself.
Jeremiah 32:37 ESV “Behold, I am The LORD, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?”
Matthew 19:26 ESV “But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.””
26 April 2021. Be Refreshed!
“I AM the One who refreshes your soul! I bring satisfaction, hope, renewal and refreshing, and you have free access to it all! So why do you limp with fatigue? Why do you look at your life through a lens that is grey, muddled, worn out and even broken in places?
Come to Me and drink from my wellspring of life. Let Me fill you to overflow! Take off the old lens that has been your viewpoint and ask me to give you restored vision. Am I not a good God?! Taste and see! Dive into My Goodness! Let it overflow into every area that needs refreshing.
Determine to try out My Goodness. Plumb the depths of it! Taste and see that who I AM brings health and wholeness to every part of you.”
Psalm 34:8-10 NIV “Taste and see that The LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear The LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek The LORD lack no good thing.”
Psalm 23:6 NIV “Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of The LORD forever.”
23 April 2021. Pick Up Your Mat and Walk
“Child, you are stronger than you think. As you have yielded to me, more has taken place in you than you realise. I have been at work in the very depths of your being this season, and My Fingerprints are all over your life. I have not left you. My Breath has been blowing life into your lungs; My Words have been whispering in your ears. I have been singing over you as you slept; My Limitless Strength is billowing through your weak and tired places. My Power has been building you up as you have brought Me your brokenness.
Sometimes you only see the changes when you make the moves. You are more ready than you think. When you step out in faith, you will feel My Hand, you will see my reflection in yours and you will hear My Heart in your voice.
Step out strong!”
John 5:8 NIV “Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.”
2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for The LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.””
22 April 2021. No Cruise Control!
“In the change of season, as the days lengthen and you have space to get out more, don’t be distracted into taking your foot off the pedal. Don’t move into cruise control. Don’t lose your focus.
Press into this time. Press into what I am doing. Maintain the momentum. Keep your eyes fixed ahead. Do not turn to the right or the left. When distractions come, as they surely will, flick them off, for they are not worthy of your attention. Keep your eyes on the road ahead. This is not a time to freewheel but to maintain your speed and to maintain your awareness. Stay alert.
Press into Me. I AM your prize. Push past the distractions. Push past the voices that would dissuade you. Push past the unwillingness of your flesh. Persevere.
Ask me where to put your energy, your time and your focus. Ask Me what I AM doing right now. I will show you; I want you alongside Me in it.”
Philippians 3:12-14 NIV “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.”
Proverbs 4:26-27 NIV “Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
21 April 2021. Stay There
In this season, The LORD is pruning us, His People. He is pruning and tending to the branches in His garden! It might be easy to think, “Well, we dealt with that, or this has been restored, so I’m good.” But He is saying, “Stay connected to Me!” We must learn that apart from Him we can do nothing! So, you don’t need to jump up and start trying to bear fruit on your own as you did before. You don’t need to perform for Him to show Him how good you are now.
No. He wants you to stay connected. Let His hand still be on you. Let Him fuss over you like a hen over her chicks. His work is not done yet, but also, He really likes it when you are close to Him! He is holding you in place until you stop squirming, and you begin to relax.
The grace is here for this, especially for those who have not been able to do this before this time. Take a chance. He won’t flinch or turn away. Just come to Him with humility. Repent if needed, but come with the confidence knowing He loves you. Come with passion for Him, don’t hold anything back! He is worthy!
John 15:1-4 NIV “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. N either can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”
20 April 2021. Whose Words?
In this day of social media and twenty-four-hour news, I hear The LORD asking, “Whose words are you speaking? Are you repeating words you’ve heard online, on the news or in what you’ve read? Are you speaking from a pure, trust-worthy, truth-telling source? Even Jesus held back and spoke only what He heard The Father speak. He chose to withhold and only speak from the purest Source! How much more do you need to do the same?”
Activation: If this Word feels convicting or challenging, simply sit with The LORD and say, “Jesus, teach me to follow Your example as I want to live as You did upon the earth. I submit my mouth and my ears to You. I choose to only say what you say.”
John 8:26 NLT “I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won’t. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful.”
John 12:49 NLT “I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it.”
19 April 2021. Ask for Double!
“What do you need today?” asks The LORD.
“Ask Me! Ask Me for precisely what you need and then ask Me for double. I AM the God of abundance, and My Heart is to bless you today with all that you need for the journey I have you on. So do not hold back; do not strive. Just ask Me.”
Mathew 7:7-8 NIV “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Philippians 4:6 NIV “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
16 April 2021. Call to Arms!
“I have released a sound into the atmosphere that is ringing out around the earth. It resonates deeply with those who hear it. When you hear this sound, stop what you are doing and run to me! This is My call to arms.
It is firstly a call for you to run into My arms, not to man, not to a building or a ministry but to Me. I AM your first port of call.
The call is going out to young and old alike, to those of all nations. None of my people are exempt. Do not listen to the taunts of your enemy, who will tell you all the reasons why this call can’t be for you. There are no limits to this clarion-clear call to arms.
As you gather to the call, as you come together, I will instruct you. My instructions are clear. There will be no confusion. I AM sending you out. This is the time for a great deployment of my people, for a mass sending out.
When I send you out, there is excitement and great joy. This is a time of excitement, of anticipation. This is not conscription; this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Don’t miss this call. Pin back your ears.
Those who have ears to hear, let them hear. I AM calling you. Gather to Me. It’s time for deployment.”
Luke 10:1-2 NIV “After this The LORD appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask The LORD of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
Matthew 28:18-20 NIV “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I AM with you always, to the very end of the age.’ “
15 April 2021. Let Me
I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “My Child, I see you shake when you hear of revival and harvest because you are so tired. You’re tired of fighting to hold it all together. Tired of struggling to get through a day, never mind a week. But that’s because you are trying to do it on your own.
Let Me take that burden off you right now; let Me be your source. Let’s go through each day, moment by moment together. Take My Hand and let Me lead the way. Only go where I go! Only go when I go! Only listen to My Voice. Trust Me! Lay that burden down at My Feet, and I will handle it. Then focus on Me and what I tell you.”
Activation: Take some time today to lay your burdens down at Jesus’ feet and ask for forgiveness for trying to do it on your own. Rest in His Presence and build up your faith.
Jude 1:20-21 NASB “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.”
Philippians 1:6 NKJV “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
14 April 2021. Salt and Light
“You are the salt and light on your street, in your neighbourhood, at your workplace, your school and in your nation! You are the one who preserves and demonstrates My Life! Yet, it requires your participation. Salt is only useful when it is used. Light is only evident when it is uncovered.
So, let your light shine! Sprinkle salt into conversations, social media and all your interactions. Let your light be uncovered! Yes, it might cost you something; give it anyway! It cost Me everything, and I ask you to follow My Example.
Let your light shine. Dare to stand out as one who is from My Kingdom and not of this earthly kingdom. Sprinkle Kingdom Thoughts, Words and Deeds in order to push back the decay and death that is creeping upon the earth. Be brave! I AM with you!”
Matthew 5:13-16 NIV ““You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
13 April 2021. Show Me Your Glory
I hear people all over the earth crying out, “Show us your glory!” As The LORD looks upon the earth, He is pleased that we are crying out for His presence and glory. In response, He says to His Spirit, “Prepare their hearts and minds to receive My Presence and Glory.”
I then saw The Holy Spirit dressed as a gardener with tools for pruning, tilling and watering. He came to each heart and used the tool that was needed for that individual. Some were scared to allow Him to prune or water or weed, but as soon as they allowed Him to do what He desired, there were such looks of relief and life on their faces! They began to glow white, radiating the glory of God from within.
So today, allow The Holy Spirit to come and do what He needs to do in your heart, mind, will, emotions and physical body. For The LORD will pour out His glory, but He will do so on those who The Spirit has prepared to carry such a weight!
Exodus 33:18 NIV “Then Moses said, ‘Now show me your glory.’ “
Haggai 2:6-7 HCSB “For The LORD of Hosts says, ‘Once more, in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and dry land. I will shake all the nations so that the treasure of all the nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory’ says The LORD of Hosts.”
12 April 2021. Keep Moving
Just put one foot in front of the other. You don’t need to work everything out. Yes, come to me for the visions and the blueprints, but trust me with the details. You don’t need to try to orchestrate what is my responsibility. Just believe that I will bring the alignments and the resources that you need for each step.
Take what you know now, and keep moving forward. Lean into me and let me set the pace. I will line everything up before you.
Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV “Trust in The LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
9 April 2021. Choose Joy!
“My Bride, many reasons surround the earth and could cause you to choose any other disposition but joy. Yet I invite you to look up! I have taken you through a season of maturing and developing, and now I challenge you to choose joy!
Choose joy despite what surrounds you; choose joy even in your circumstances and position. You are also positioned in heavenly places, and My Joy will strengthen you for the road ahead.”
James 1:2-3 ESV “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.”
Ephesians 2:6 ESV “And raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”
8 April 2021. Holy Spirit Zeal
“Today, I AM releasing zeal to My People! To My Children! No longer do I want you in laboured effort, dragging your feet to My Throne.
Feel the rush of My Holy Spirit zeal to shock you into action! Let it influence everything you do. Everything you pursue, everything you dream, everything you say, everything you proclaim — let it be full of zeal. I cannot have a passive or dozing bride. I release the fullness of life in everything I impart to My Children; let this infuse your day.”
Activation: Pray this over your day — “LORD, will you make me zealous for this? Will you release excitement, expectation and passion for what I do today? I want to model your Kingdom in my work/family/parenting by allowing this infusion of life.”
Revelation 3:15 NIV “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! ”
John 10:10 NIV “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
7 April 2021. Come Close!
Are you hungry? Are you thirsty? Are you tired? Do you need comfort? Do you need to be rescued? Do you want to know what Jesus is thinking about? Do you want to know what He is about to do? Then, draw near. He says, “Come close! Closer still!”
At the Passover, John, the beloved, was reclining at the table next to Jesus with his head on Jesus’ chest. That’s not near, that’s close! From this place, John could ask Jesus what He was about to do, and Jesus’ answer could be heard and seen by John.
“There is a space for you. Come closer!” He says this to the weary, the tired, the lonely, the ones needing rescue, to everyone, no matter what your condition or circumstance is right now. Now is the time to come closer to Him, to choose Him. With confidence and zeal for Him, run to Him and take your place!
John 13:23-25 NASB “Lying back on Jesus’ chest was one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. So Simon Peter nodded to this disciple and said to him, “Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking.” He then simply leaned back on Jesus’ chest and said to Him, “Lord, who is it?””
Psalm 34:18 NASB “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
6 April 2021. Pursue Peace
“My Children, you are blessed when you seek to let My Peace rule your life. When you choose to be led by My Peace rather than out of any fleshly reaction, you will be blessed. When you choose to reach out to a brother or sister in Christ out of the desire to live in peace with all men, you are blessed.
Seek My Peace. Pursue it. Allow it to rule and reign in your life.
Out of that place of peace, you will then know what to speak and when. You will know how to walk through days of chaos. You will manoeuvre well through difficult situations. Let peace, My Peace, guide you.”
Romans 12:18 NIV “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
Colossians 3:13 NLT “And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”
5 April 2021. Lift Him Up!
The Spirit of The LORD is saying, “Be like the Psalmist who opened his mouth to sing of The LORD’s greatness. Encourage yourself in humility by declaring, ‘My help comes from The LORD.’
Those who put Me and no other on the pedestal in their lives will hear My accolade saying, ‘Good and faithful servant.’”
Just as Jesus drew men to Himself through the crucifixion and resurrection, so He continues to draw people as you raise Him high by your words. Your humility and determination to put Him first will draw men to The King.
Praise Him as your Saviour and Deliverer. Tell of His deeds among the nations. Our help does come from The LORD!
Psalm 121:2 NIVUK “My help comes from The LORD, the maker of heaven and earth.”
1 John 4:4 NIVUK “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
2 April 2021. Arise!
“Arise, My Sons! Arise, My Sons! Arise, My Sons!
Creation’s groan has reached My Ears. Creation is calling, straining, longing for My Sons to arise. It is time for My Sons to be revealed.
I AM calling forth the ones hidden in back rooms, hidden in shame, in secrecy and the dark. I AM calling you into the light. I AM calling you to stand tall. Lift your heads and look full into My Face. You will not see what you expect for My Eyes are full of compassion, full of love.
I AM releasing the ones who have been stuck in the miry clay, stuck in the pits of hell, unable to move. Reach out and put your hand in mine. I will lead you out.
I AM waking the ones who are sleeping, drugged and lulled by the enemy’s lullaby. I AM shaking you awake.
I AM resurrecting the ones who are held captive in the tombs of death, bound and unable to escape. Hear My Voice as it reaches into the depths of your prison.
Come forth, My Sons! Let Me bring you into maturity, into the fullness of your sonship and release you to carry My Glory across the earth. This is your time. Come fully into the light of My Love and My Fathering. You are My beloved Sons.”
Romans 8:19-21 NIV “For the creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.”
John 11:43 NKJV “Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!””
Matthew 3:17 NIV “And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’”
1 April 2021. My Heart Burns for You!
“My heart burns for you. It burns for your nation, your city, your community, your neighbourhood and your household. My heart rushes to your invitations, your coming and going, your family moments and your secret place. There are no lengths I will not go in my desire for you to know how much I adore you!
Everything about Me is passionate and zealous for you. I pursue you with all of Me, in the hopes of all of you — all of your life!
Today, let the burning heart of Heaven be imparted to you in response to My Love. Seek My Face; get to know Me as the passionate Father who burns with Holy Fire for His People.”
Romans 5:8 TPT “But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!”
Song of Songs 7:6 NIV “How beautiful you are and how pleasing, my love, with your delights!”
