February 28, 2022. Dressed in Freedom
“I AM setting you free from a chain that has held you captive. This chain has been wrapped around your neck and has brought you into captivity. I AM taking this restriction off today for you are rising in strength and freedom.
I love dressing you in spiritual clothing. Many of you are very good at putting on your spiritual armour. Today, I want to give your neck fresh adornment to replace the captivity that I have removed. It is a necklace of wisdom, sound judgement, and discernment to bring life to your soul. Let loving devotion and faithfulness adorn you. Let Me put My Necklace on you today.”
Activation : Sit before The LORD and ask Him what necklace is around your neck. If it is one which is a sign of captivity, repent for wearing it and take it off in the mighty Name of Jesus. Stand up to represent you rising in your spirit, shake off the dust, and pull off the chain to illustrate your agreement.
Now, ask Him to give you His adornment for your neck. Agree that loving devotion and faithfulness to Him are beautiful things, and you want to joyfully wear them. Agree that sound judgement, discernment, and His wisdom will adorn your neck and bring life to your soul. Sit down to represent your unity with Him and thank Him for your new necklace.
Proverbs 3:3 (NIV) “Never let loving devotion or faithfulness leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.”
Proverbs 3:21-22 (NIV) “My son, do not lose sight of this: Preserve sound judgement and discernment.They will be life to your soul and adornment to your neck.”
Isaiah 52:2 (NIV) “Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter of Zion, now a captive.”
February 25, 2022. Bootcamp
“Church, it is time to be the effective warrior I have created you to be! I AM taking you through a heavenly boot camp where you will be trained in the art of spiritual warfare and battle strategy. You will go through intense exercises and drills, designed to strengthen your faith and teach you how to war from a heavenly perspective.
There will be a great stripping away of old things that have kept you too comfortable and complacent. Just as a bootcamp is designed to break down your strength so as to build you back up better than before, you will go through a refining process to become more alert, alive, and trained to sustain the greater level of spiritual warfare that is coming.
I AM preparing you to go on the offensive against the enemy. You will not only defend the land you have been given, but you will also begin to take back territory for The Kingdom.”
Psalm 18:29 (NIV) “With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.”
Psalm 144:1 (NIV) “Praise The LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.”
February 24, 2022. Push Into Maturity
“I AM giving you a choice in how to live and what spiritual doors to step through so you may grow into maturity. I AM teaching you to shut some doors and push open others.
Maturity is found in me, Jesus. I have given you life and entrusted you with other people. It’s time to go higher than you’ve been before, to stand on other’s ceilings. Do not be shocked when I call you to this. Do not make do with where you are now. There is always more, for mine is an unshakable and unlimited kingdom.
Ask me how this can happen, and I will answer with details. Bring to me any unrest, fears, things that rile you or produce unholy responses in your heart, and start pushing through into greater maturity.”
Prayer: Holy Spirit, take me forwards, untangle my thoughts and heart spiritually and emotionally. Give me determination and diligence to grow into maturity, whatever it takes.
Proverbs 4: 23 (NIVUK) “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Hebrews 12: 28- 29 (MSG) “Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He is actively cleaning house, touching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is fire!”
February 23, 2022. I Meet Your Need
“I AM coming to meet you today in the way you need Me to. This is different for each person. Tell Me what you are searching for. I want to reveal myself and meet you in your need today.
Do you need the warmth and comfort of My outstretched Wings? Then feel my warmth and security, and rest in Me.
Do you need a safe place to shelter from life’s storms? Or a strong tower from enemy attack? Step into Me, Jesus, your shelter, your strong tower, the safest place to be. See, you are protected high above the storms and attacks! They look much smaller now, don’t they?
Do you need my steady strength to build your life upon? Let My Strength fill you.
Do you need more fellowship with me and an enlargement of your spirit? Welcome The Holy Spirit to fill you with more of His Presence.”
Psalm 61:2-3 (NIV) “From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.”
Isaiah 54:2 (NKJV) “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes.”
February 22, 2022. God of the Generations
“This is a year of family. I AM bringing My Family together around the table of fellowship. Where there has been discord, disconnection, and segregation, I AM joining family back together. Where there has been disunity across the generations, I AM addressing the mindsets that perpetuate this. In particular, I AM removing false honour that patronises other generations, and I AM removing the expectations of a lack of connection, understanding, and mutual respect.
As you gather simply around the table make space for connection, for a joining of hearts, and choose to focus on what ties you together. As you learn to listen to each other with fresh appreciation, you will learn to value and to celebrate each other. Allow Me to teach you to see what I see, and you will create a safe space for me to bring home those who walked away. You will create an environment where I can bring my hurting children and bring back those who walked away because they were misunderstood, crushed, frustrated, overlooked, and angry. You will create a place where all can grow, participate, and flourish.
This is a season to build together and prioritise family. Not in an ungodly way that idolises them but in a way that champions, encourages, and releases them. I AM releasing a grace for generational connection in this season. I AM releasing an anointing on joint family ventures.”
Activation : Allow the light of the Holy Spirit to search your heart for hidden mindsets and attitudes towards other generations by asking the question: “What stops me from connecting with older/younger people?” It may be that He will want to take it to a more individual level and talk to you about specific people in your context. This is also a time to choose forgiveness for those who have hurt you with their attitudes towards your own generation. As you allow Holy Spirit to reveal wrong attitudes and mindsets, don’t just repent, but ask Him to heal your heart and your vision so that you can see people through His eyes. This will allow you to celebrate who they are, including their differences. Ask, “What generational differences do you want me to learn to celebrate?”
Acts 7:32a (NIVUK) “I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
2 Corinthians 5:16-217 (MSG) “Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life emerges!”
Ephesians 6:1-4 (TPT) “Children, if you want to be wise, listen to your parents and do what they tell you, and The LORD will help you. For the commandment, “Honour your father and your mother,” was the first of the Ten Commandments with a promise attached: “You will prosper and live a long, full life if you honour your parents.” Fathers, don’t exasperate your children, but raise them up with loving discipline and counsel that brings the revelation of our Lord.”
February 21, 2022. Healing
“Reach up today and grab a hold of the healing oil I AM pouring out on you. I release from Heaven a divine breakthrough for healing today. I say “no” to sickness and pain in people’s bodies. Reach your hands high into Heaven and let my healing balm cover your hands in the spirit. Now, place your hands on your body and allow my power to move.
I have made you for health and well being. I have made you to live in the fullness of life promised to you. You were made to thrive! You, who is bed-bound and unable to move like the paralysed man, I say “pick up your mat and walk.” Today is a day of healing!”
Activation : Start to decree healing over yourself and contend for healing in your body. Break all agreements with disappointment and curses of pain and sickness over your body, and begin to speak life and wholeness into your body.
Matthew 8:1-3 (NIV) “When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy.”
Matthew 8:6-13 (NIV) “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralysed, suffering terribly.” Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.
When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.”
February 18, 2022. Increased Authority
“Today I AM inviting you to step into a new level of authority. Today I AM calling you to take a step into a new authority that makes you stand out as different from the many voices of this earth. The influence of the earth holds nothing in comparison to the authority of Heaven flowing through your voice.
It is time to start speaking the truth and watch as Heaven’s authority shifts and changes situations around you. I see the people who don’t yet know Me wandering around looking for a voice of authority, and today, I call you to be My Mouth. Speak The Truth, speak Love, and stand in this new wave of authority.”
Matthew 7:28-29 (NIV) “When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.”
Ephesians 4:15 (NIV) “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
Ephesians 4:25 (NIV) “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body.”
February 17, 2022. Hope
“It is time to hope! Time to hope above disappointment and hope in the face of the unknown. I AM restoring hope in you today. It is time to stand up and believe in My Promises more than the reality of your circumstances.
Am I not powerful enough to defy the law of nature and defy the reason of man?
Do I not laugh at the plans of the enemy and make the wise man look foolish?
Am I not The God who can part the waters and raise the dead back to life?
Does not My Touch bring healing and My Words deliver those who are bound?
I AM the God whose Words do not return to Him void, but that go forth and accomplish that with which it was sent. That is My Promise to you today. Hope again, for I have not stopped moving. I have not stopped promising or changed My Mind.”
Isaiah 55:10-11 (NIV) “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
Ephesians 1:18 (NIV) “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.”
February 16, 2022. Clear Paths
“This is a year where My People will learn to hear My Voice more clearly. I will guide them with the tools of a good shepherd, leading them along clear paths, and gently winding rivers. I will teach them many prudent life lessons which will prepare and establish them for the years to come. They will learn intimately what My voice sounds like; the tone, the feel, even the direction from where I AM speaking will become familiar to them as they walk with Me. I desire to be closer to My Flock, pulling them into a deeper level of relationship and bread breaking. This is a time to go deep into the richness of My Love and Mercy. I AM coming to comfort My People and heal them of their infirmities. Coming into closer fellowship and communion with Me will establish a greater understanding of My Character and My Will. I AM sending an invitation to come closer into My Heart!”
John 10:27 (ESV) “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
Psalm 23:1-2 (ESV) “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.”
February 15, 2022. Come Dine With Me
“I have set before you a banquet of goodness to feast upon. As you sit with Me, focus on My goodness towards you. Deliberately choose to think about My Love for you, My Favour resting upon you, and My Care and protection of you. Posture your heart in thankfulness. In doing so, know that you are diminishing the enemy’s hold over you.
When you choose to prioritise time in my presence — lingering at the table of bounty with Me — it diminishes the magnitude of your enemies in relation to Me. The enemy of your soul would like to make himself big in your eyes. He would like to draw your gaze away from me and make himself the centre of your attention. Know that where you choose to let your mind dwell will fill your thoughts, affect your emotions, and occupy space in your life.
Come dine with Me and allow your gaze to rest on Me as My Eyes hold yours. I AM always waiting for you. I AM always ready to sit with you. I AM always available. I AM never late. I AM never a disappointment. Let Me fill your mind, emotions, and heart with My Goodness and Love.”
Activation : Allow The Holy Spirit to show you where you have allowed the enemy, your problems, or circumstances to eclipse the majesty, might, and glory of God. Allow Him to put things into a godly order by refocusing your gaze on Him. Spend time meditating on the characteristics of God that he brings to mind.
Psalm 23:5 (NLT) “You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.”
Song of Solomon 2:4 (ESV) “He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”
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.”
February 14, 2022. I Want More
“There is a deep, longing cry that I AM awakening in the hearts of my people. It is a cry that starts small and takes some time to build, but it is a deep longing for more of God. A longing to dwell in His Presence and be found in His Arms. A longing to look upon His Face and to see His Beauty. It’s a longing to be like Moses who cried out to his Father: “Show me Your Glory!” Today I AM stirring that afresh inside of you.”
Activation : Start crying out to see Jesus. Read the scriptures out loud until they become the truth of how you feel. Posture yourself as Moses did, declaring that you will not depart until you see God’s Glory and you are dwelling in His Presence. Ask God to make you even more hungry for His Presence.
Psalm 27:4 (NIV) “One thing I ask from The LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of The LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of The LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
Exodus 33:18-23 (NIV) “Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.””
February 11, 2022. Step Into The Now
February 10, 2022. Security in God
“I AM emphasising My Promise of security. I want you to receive another level of reassurance, and I know you will meet the need for different aspects of that protection at different times and in different ways.
Today I AM coming as your shelter.
I AM your true rock, steady and stable.
I AM your refuge and a strong fortified tower.
I AM the pitched tent of a sanctuary.
I Am also like a mother hen with outstretched wings to warm, comfort and cover you.”
Psalm 61: 2-3 NIV “When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been a shelter or me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;I will trust in the shelter of your wings.”
Isaiah 54:2 NKJV “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the place of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes.”
February 9, 2022. Established in Truth
“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have,” 2 Peter 1:12.
“I have established you in what is true, in the reality of life in Me. Your strength, confidence, and unwavering hope come from knowing the truth and staying firmly in the One who is the Truth.
If you remain aware of the reality, the present truth of your existence in Christ and all that it brings in terms of benefits, of blessing; if you will celebrate and keep your eyes firmly fixed on that truth, you will be immovable; you will be able to stand firm regardless of the opinions of man, regardless of circumstances and regardless of the enemy’s attempts to pull you off track.
I have already established you in Truth. Your job is to remain in that truth, submit to the truth, believe the truth, and ignore and refute the enemy’s whispers. As you take me at my word, as you put my words into practice and don’t just nod in mental assent but stake your life on the truth of my words, lean your weight on them and trust in them, they will be solid ground to your feet; a sure path. ”
Activation : Spend time cultivating thankfulness for the truth of the blessings of your life in Christ.
Ask The Holy Spirit if there is a specific scripture or section of scripture that is particularly relevant for you to meditate on in this season.
“Praise The LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:2-5 NIV.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing.” Ephesians 1:3 NIV.
“Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. If you keep My Commands, you will remain in My Love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and remain in His Love.” John 15:4a, 10 NIV.
February 8, 2022. A Thankful Heart
“Thanksgiving is the way to break through in this season. Thanksgiving makes way for healing restoration and brings an end to robbery. Misery and complaining have become a too familiar friendship in your life. It’s also been, in some situations, the foundation on which relationships have been built on. But in this season, I AM giving you a mouth full of thanksgiving.
I AM looking for your agreement with the language of heaven. Will you speak life to all those around you by giving thanks and praise? I AM creating within you a heart full of thankfulness and praise. A heart that brings life and hope to all situations. Thankfulness is your best weapon in this season to pull you out of the hardships into God glorious promises.”
Challenge : For every grumbling word, speak two positive things about the same situation. Turn your mouth into a house of praise and thanksgiving.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Proverbs 18:21 NIV “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
February 7, 2022. Prove That I Exist
“I call you to lead by speaking kindly to the oppressed. You are strong and release My Holy Spirit when you lift others up. Your gratitude in place of grumbling changes atmospheres.
I call you to think big, to see from My View, and come into a place of influence from My Perspective. I call you a Kingdom Influencer.
I AM stirring up the hearts of those who do not know Me. I AM stirring the questioners, the ones who are desperately looking for my love, heart and freedom. I AM stirring the hearts of people crying out for Me to prove I exist.
Today I call you to be the answer to those prayers and that longing in their hearts, to tell people you come in contact with today that God see them, that I know them, that I Love them. The harvest is getting ready. Will you go out with me as a co-labourer?”
2 Corinthians 3: 16-18 ESV “But when one turns to The LORD, the veil is removed. Now The LORD is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of The LORD is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of The LORD, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from The LORD, who is the Spirit.”
Acts 2:15 ESV “You will be witnesses to all people of what you have seen and heard.”
February 4, 2022. Steady and Sure
“To ride the coming storms of life, I AM asking you to jettison unnecessary ballast, which will weigh you down and stop you from keeping your head above the waves. It is not my intention that you struggle to stay above the waves but that you manage to walk on them and rise above the circumstances surrounding you. I have made you to be one who walks in victory, in confidence.
To do this, I AM asking you to throw off mindsets and habits that will jeopardise your capacity to stride with confidence through life. I AM asking you to prepare. I AM asking you not to wait until you are in a storm but like the wise sailor, to ready the ship ahead of the storm; to batten down the hatches, and to ensure your anchor is planted deep in solid ground so that you are not storm-tossed but steady and sure.”
Activation : Take time to sit with The Holy Spirit and ask Him the mindsets, beliefs, thoughts and habits that undermine your ability to stand firm whatever the circumstances. Ask Him if there are any habits He would like you to establish that will help you prepare for the season to come.
Hebrews 6:19-20 TPT “We have this certain hope like a strong unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold, and where Jesus, our forerunner, has gone in before us. He is now and forever our royal Priest like Melchizedek.”
James 1:6-8 NIV “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from The LORD. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”
February 3, 2022. I Call You Friend
“I call you My Friend, and I long for a deeper friendship with you. I have seen your heart to serve Me, to honour Me, to give all glory and praise. I know you see Me rightly. I want to draw you closer to Me and bring you into a revelation of our friendship with one another. It is not a small or weak thing, but in the place of friendship, we grow in depth and in intimacy. We grow in the knowledge of each other and in the understanding of each other’s hearts. Come and meet with Me today as a friend meets with a friend and sit a little while and share the stories of life, the ups and the downs and find me with an open heart and a listening ear, My Friend.”
James 2:23 NIV “And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.”
John 15:15 NIV “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
February 2, 2022. A Prayer for the Thirsty
Oh God, I long for more of you.
Like that deer panting for water, I yearn for your presence.
Reveal yourself to me, open my eyes.
Wake me from my spiritual slumber.
Help my spirit become alert and aware of you.
Psalm 42:1 -2 NKJV “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my pants my soul for you. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.”
Ephesians 5:14 NKJV “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”
Hebrews 11: 6 NKJV “He is a rewarded of those who diligently seek Him.”
February 1, 2022. Fellowship with The Holy Spirit
2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV “May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
“You have known Me as Saviour, as one who extends My Grace to you, who brings you into the riches of My Salvation. You have known me as a loving Father, the one who welcomes you as beloved children, by the blood, and in the Name of My Precious Son. Now I want you to know My Holy Spirit.
I AM expanding your understanding of the meaning of this fellowship as I walk with you daily as The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, The Spirit of Revelation, and The Spirit of Counsel. I AM inviting you into an experience of being entwined with me in a much deeper way that involves a level of communion that does not relegate Me to moments in time or to encounters.
I AM one with you. I AM enlarging your capacity to live in awareness of your union with Me all the time. I do not leave you, ever. I AM always present. I AM increasing your awareness of My Presence, not in order to give you moments of intense feeling but for you to live and move and have your being in Me, in My Reality.”
1 Corinthians 6:17 ESV “But he who is joined to The LORD becomes one spirit with him.”
