Daily prophecy for January, 2021, republished with the kind permission of the Glasgow Prophetic Center. Every Monday — Friday.
27 January 2021. Break Away!
“You don’t have to accept the chains. Shake them off. It’s not as easy as that I hear you say. But with Me it is. Can’t you see these chains that you have accepted as part of your life are an illusion? It’s a lie that you have to remain bound.
Did you not know that freedom is your portion? All over the world, I see My People willingly holding out their wrists to be handcuffed. You have the choice. Do not be fastened to the darkness around you. Make the decision to break away from what drains you and speak life through my breath within you.
Activation — ask God to show you what you need freedom from. Then pray out loud — name it, repent for partnering with it and declare that you are breaking agreement with it. Welcome The Holy Spirit afresh.”
Galatians 5:1 NIV “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
2 Corinthians 3:17 NIV “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of The LORD is, there is freedom.”
26 January 2021. Embrace Those Around You
“It is a time of increase! Light and glory are upon you. Yes, the nations are being drawn to your light, but they will stop in their tracks to consider the extraordinary, tangible, unexplainable love. This mystery will grip their hearts because they have been lonely and isolated, and disconnected from others, even their closest family.
It is time to add the visible and undeniable expressions of love to validate your witness, that you belong to Me and that I AM truly in you. You see, it is how the world will know that you belong to Me. It is the true mark that shows you belong to me and follow me.
It is a time of fruitfulness! You are bursting forth with the fruit of love because we have been together, close, intimate, and growing in adoration and devotion. You have clung to me while the world has been tossed into chaos and uncertainty. You have been kept safe under my shadow and made secure in my love. And now there is fresh, new fruit on your branches.
It is time to embrace those around you — extend your arms out toward them to love them, be generous, kind, and selfless with them. These are your family because they are also in me and I in them. Yes, my arms are big enough to encompass all of you! Of course, they are! And My Love has no end. Now, let that fruit continue to mature even as you choose to take these steps of obedience and maturity. Love one another as I have loved you.”
John 13:35 TPT “For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
Isaiah 60:1-3 NKJV “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
25 January 2021. Take Your Place
“My Strength is not like the strength of the world. I can bring the world to a standstill with the tiniest of things — snowflakes or drops of water. You may think you are weak, small, or inadequate, but your weakness, your vulnerability, does not disqualify you in The Kingdom. I do not look at the external appearance. Your worldly strength is not what qualifies you in My Kingdom; it is your heart.
I want your heart, your whole heart, fully surrendered. Do not hold back. Do not be half-hearted — no more dithering on the side-lines. I need your full commitment. I have qualified you as my child. I have qualified you to take your place in My Kingdom. It is time for you to step forward and take your place, once and for all.
This is not a time for sitting back, opting out or stepping down. I have called you for this time and this place. I have positioned you where you are right now. Some of you are surprised at where you find yourself at this time. Some of you thought it would look different. I know the plans I have for you. Don’t opt-out. Trust Me. My Army is weakened when My People do not step into the places I have assigned. Don’t hesitate. Do not allow fear, intimidation or the lies of the enemy to hold you back. You are needed. There is no-one who can take your place for I have uniquely designed you for your place, at this time.”
1 Corinthians 12:18 NIV “But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.”
Romans 12:4-5 NIV “For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
22 January 2021. The Secret Place
“When life feels uncomfortable, challenging, wearisome and tiring, I offer rest and refreshment. This offer is permanent and unchanging. It is available to all at any time.
Do not despair when it feels as if you are on your own with no one to comfort you. I long to be your comfort! Do not be overcome and overwhelmed by your circumstances, but bring them to me. Let Me carry them. Do not let fear grab hold for I AM here! There is no need to fear anyone or anything. I AM with you!
I, the One who defeated sin and death, come to offer you all that you need. Every one of your needs is met in the secret place with Me. Come and do not delay!”
Psalm 91:1-8 NIV. “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.”
21 January 2021. Choose the Better Thing
The Spirit says, “Some of you have been like a wriggling young child, wanting closeness and needing comfort from your Heavenly Father, but then not allowing His Arms to enfold you.
You have fidgeted and become impatient with Me and My Timings in the world. What is needed is for you to leave aside your own agendas, stop wriggling away from the Father’s Arms and instead sit at peace. I do know better than you”.
So as you hear The LORD’s purposeful chastisement, pour out your love to Him, confess that you need Him and read again how His thoughts are so much higher than yours and His peace incomprehensible.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 NIVUK “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”
Luke 10:39-42 NIVUK “She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.””
20 January 2021. On Your Knees
“So often, when the enemy thinks he has won, it is then that the tables are turned. I AM the One who turned an instrument of torture and death into a sign of hope and love. I AM the One who turned what Satan thought was his biggest moment of victory into a crushing defeat. It became a moment of glorious triumph for My Kingdom! I cannot be defeated by the enemy’s plans! I cannot lose because he has already lost! Every plan of the enemy will be overturned. Every plan and purpose of mine will prevail.
Remember this when he whispers in your ear that you have no hope. Remember this when he tells you that you have lost. His voice will tell you that you are defeated, crushed and without hope. He is wrong. At the moment when you feel overwhelmed, falling to your knees in defeat and despair without strength, listen for My Voice.
Hear me whisper, “‘On your knees’ is a position of victory! Lift your head, My Child, and hear My Voice. Let Me tell you that when you surrender your strength, when you fall to your knees, you are positioned for victory. In that position of humility and surrender, don’t submit to his lies. Submit and surrender all to Me. As you humble yourself before Me, acknowledging your weakness and need of My Strength, you position yourself for Me to act.
Call on Me now. I WILL answer. As you submit to Me, positioned in humility, I will infuse you with My Strength and be the lifter of your head. You will receive my grace to continue at that moment. I will raise you up again!””
James 4:6 NIVUK “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: ‘God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.’”
James 4:10 NIVUK “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
19 January 2021. Listen!
“My Word is important! It is life at its very core. It is your lifeline. My Words minister and they uphold. They cherish, and they adore. They convict, and they sort. They shift, change, mold and move. M y Word stands within you for I spoke you into being. I awaken destiny within you by My Word.
So today, LISTEN. Every day, listen. My Word is important, the most important thing, and I long to give it to you.”
Activation: Today, set aside time to read God’s Word and to LISTEN to His Words. Prompt your spirit in prayer, declaring “LORD, Your words are important!”
Psalm 56:10 NIV “In God, whose word I praise, in The LORD, whose word I praise.”
Jeremiah 23:18 NIV “But which of them has stood in the council of The LORD to see or to hear His Word? Who has listened and heard His Word?”
18 January 2021. Catch the Foxes
Song of Solomon 2:15 NIV “Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.”
A new year brings a window of opportunity to clean out, purge, re-order and prioritise. It is a chance to deal with some of the small things that have distracted and hindered you from your main priorities. The Holy Spirit is urging each one to take some time (if you haven’t already) “to catch the little foxes that spoil the vine.” Catch the distractions that keep you from enjoyment and delight in the presence of the Lord. He is the vine from which all life flows!
He says, “Nothing is more valuable than time spent with ME! Nothing will benefit you more than time spent in communion with Me. So, take the time, make the time, increase your time with Me — not out of duty or obligation — but out of the knowledge that I satisfy you with all good things!”
Psalm 84:10-11 NLT “A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. For The LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.”
15 January 2021. First Fruit
“This is a season of first fruits — the first fruit appearing on the branch after a long winter and late spring. This first fruit is Love.
You are bearing this fruit now because you have been connected to Me, the Vine! You have grown in Me and have clung to Me through the season. You have let Me Love you and hold you in your place. You have also found new ways and new expressions of My Love! My Heart is beating with JOY when we are together. I AM not too busy for you. And you are learning to be present with Me more and more. Your love delights me as you delight in Me. I AM delighted to see this precious first fruit.”
Song of Solomon 4:16 GNT “Wake up, North Wind. South Wind, blow on my garden; fill the air with fragrance. Let my lover come to his garden and eat the best of its fruits.”
Galatians 5:22 NKJV “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…”
John 15:4 NKJV “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.”
14 January 2021. Sweet Victory
“The fulfillment of My Promises is made richer when there is a mountain of opposition against them. The victory is made sweeter when there is an army to overcome and a battle to be won. Who told the mountains where to stand, and the sea where to stay? Who raises a nation in a day or lays it low? Who has created the blacksmith and the spoiler to destroy? Me! The King of kings and the Lord of lords. I AM the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. As you look over the land of 2021, will you complain about the size of the giants or will you remember who I AM?”
Hebrews 13:8 NIV “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Numbers 14:7b-9 NIV “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them.”
13 January 2021. Fork in the Road
The Spirit of The LORD is saying that in this season there is a fork in the road in front of you. A decision needs to be made about how you will posture your heart and mind in this coming year. This is a pivotal moment that The LORD does not want you to miss; so, look up and see what He is showing you!
He is asking you now to picture that fork in the road — the two different roads you can select in this season on Earth. One of the roads in your heart is taking you to a place of despair, anxiety, uncertainty and abandonment where the road is dusty and dark. The other road is full of light, colour, joy and leads into the Father’s Heart, into His love and safety. Taking this path, you are choosing in your heart to want to know Him deeper and deeper.
For in this next season, there will be uncertainty, and The LORD is saying, “If you choose the road to my heart, to knowing me more intimately, you will truly live and thrive, not only in your heart and mind but in everything you do.”
Activation: Pray Ephesians 1:17 and ask God to give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation to know Him better and more deeply. Ask Him to take off anything from your eyes and heart that has stopped you from seeing Him for who He truly is.
Ephesians 1:17 NIV “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.”
Deuteronomy 8:3 NIV “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of The LORD.”
12 January 2021. Look Ahead
I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “It is time to take your eyes off of your disappointments and the things you feel that you have failed in and get your eyes focused back on Me. First of all, the way you evaluate things is very different from the way I evaluate things. What you see as failure, I see as a learning curve, which is always a win. Some of your disappointments were because you stepped out of My Will, and some were for you to move forward and upward.
Lay those negative feelings down and realise the past is just that — past, leave it there. Start to look ahead. There have to be some endings for new beginnings to happen. Come to me and ask of Me the deep desires of your heart. Ask for guidance and revelation. I will not leave you nor forsake you; together, we can do this.”
Ephesians 3:20 NKJV “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
Psalm 121:1-2 NKJV “I will lift up my eyes to the hills — from whence comes my help? My help comes from The LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”
11 January 2021. Which Way?
“When the media declares unrest, I speak peace. When the world looks like it’s consumed by chaos, I bring order. When confusion abounds, I offer clarity. When nothing makes sense, I come to bring My understanding.
Which way will you look? Whose “truth” will you listen to? I AM here. My Word is here. I offer a different view than the world does.
Choose today which view you will take in. Choose today whose truth you’ll listen to. Choose to seek My understanding for truly I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
John 14:16 NIV. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.””
Proverbs 4:5-6 NIV. “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.”
8 January 2021. Cutting Edge Upgrade
“Every one of you is crucial to My Work on Earth. You are so important and so needed. That is why I AM forging ahead to sharpen your effectiveness to be more cutting edge for The Kingdom.
This is being done by taking your sword and breastplate and hammering them into new armour. Your child-like weapons are being upgraded. What is coming will be just the right weight for you, but it’s not for show! It’s for you to stand as the warrior that you are. I call you to be brave in your daily life, so honour me by welcoming this enhancement.
Stand and allow Me to strip off your previous armour. Leave behind old ministries and old mindsets that I have finished with. Work with Me when I challenge you. I AM skilled and gentle. You may feel this in your heart, but know that I AM committed to you to bring my good work to completion.”
Philippians 1:3-6 MSG “Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”
7 January 2021. I Want Your Heart
I hear The Spirit of The LORD say, “This has been a year of preparation, a year of shaking, but it has been to prepare you for what is to come. It was to shake off all that hinders you from stepping into what I have for you. Even though it has been difficult and has seemed almost impossible at times, I have never left you. I have always been with you.
Mountain top experiences are great and exciting, but it’s in the valleys where you learn to draw close to me, to seek Me first, to spend time with Me. Life is not solely about achievement, but it’s about relationship with Me. I want your heart. I want you, beloved child.”
Take some time with Father and ask what He is preparing you for? What does He want to do through you? What does He want to show you about who He is in you? Is there anything you still need to deal with? Then, spend time listening to Him! Lastly, spend time thanking Him for all He has done and all He plans to do.
John 16:13 NKJV “However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
6 January 2021. I Do Not Fail
I heard The LORD say, “Do you know that My Son’s coming to earth was never going to fail? It couldn’t! So, where you think of yourself as ‘an extra’ in My Kingdom, know that My Son came for you! He came so that you would come to His Feast, His Celebration. Come and take part in His Victory for His Word continues to never fail . Through your submission to Him, He will accomplish what He desires in and through you.”
Isaiah 55:11 NIV “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.”
John 3:17 NIV “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
5 January 2021. Do Not Be Troubled
“Let not your heart be troubled. I know the beginning from the end. I knew what My Disciples would face and I know what you will face. Do not worry; DO NOT let your heart be troubled!
Set your eyes on me. Set your feet upon ME, the Rock. Set your face like a flint. Do not look to the media; do not listen to the reports of man. Listen to ME! I have Words of Truth to speak to you. I have overcome! Hear Me above all else! Solidify yourself in Me, and by doing so, you will be one who is immovable, unshakeable, solid and running a straight course after me!”
John 14:1 NIV “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.”
John 16:33 NIV “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
4 January 2021. My Good Plans
“My Love never fails or gives up on you! Irrespective of where you find yourself, in the pit or on the mountain top, or even somewhere in between, I Love you with My Everlasting Love. I AM right where you left Me. Come back to Me with your brokenness and let me heal your heart and breathe new life into you. You may not see or feel this at the moment, but I have great plans for you. From before you were born I knew you and had a plan and a purpose for your life; together we can see that come to pass! Will you trust me and walk with Me? This is not the end but an opportunity for a new beginning! Will you walk with Me and talk with Me? Let Me lead you into all that I have for you. I Love you, and My Love never fails.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says The LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
1 January 2021. His Good Gift
The LORD would say to you today: “Do you not remember that all good gifts come from Me? Open your heart and receive the good gift that I have prepared for you since the dawning of time. It is the pure love of My Son, Jesus, wrapped up in skin in the form of a baby. This is my love poured out for you. Will you receive My Love today? Will you open your heart to the Love of My Son?”
Begin this brand new year with a heart full of gratitude for the gift of Jesus. Thank Him (out loud) for all He has done, all He is doing and all that He will do!
James 1:17 NIV “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
John 3:16 “For this is how much God loved the world — He gave His one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.”
