30 June 2022. Get Wisdom
“He taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom; get insight; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth.” Proverbs 4:4-5 (ESV)
“You have made seeking wisdom and understanding an intellectual exercise. You have wrestled with trying to understand. You have tried to work things out. Have I not told you not to trust in your own understanding? Have I not told you that heavenly wisdom looks different to earthly wisdom?
Heavenly wisdom is asked for and received. Heavenly wisdom is inexorably linked to your ability to hear and obey. It looks like trust and dependence. Heavenly wisdom requires humility and the ability to lean on my understanding, not yours. Heavenly wisdom submits to being led. Heavenly wisdom acknowledges that I am the All-knowing One and trusts me to lead without needing to understand all things.
The way to wisdom and understanding – leading to paths of righteousness and success – is obedience. The wise are those who listen to my words and obey. The humble heart; the dependent heart; the trusting heart; the obedient heart will find wisdom and understanding.
In the days ahead, there will increasingly be times when what I am asking you does not seem to make sense but if, like Moses at the Red Sea, or Joshua at Jericho, or Gideon facing the Midianties, you will trust in my wisdom and obey, you will find success. You will find deliverance in your hour of need, leading others with you in defeating the plans of the enemy. Heavenly strategies are desperately needed in these times. It is time for my people to be known as those with strategies that confound the enemy, that bring release to captives, and bring solutions in situations that seem impossible.”
Prayer : Lord, I repent for each and every time I have relied on man’s wisdom and my own ability to understand to work things out. I repent for not asking for your pure, heavenly wisdom and not relying on you, the one who knows all things. I acknowledge that I am totally dependent on you and your word. I need your wisdom. I ask now that you would give me the wisdom and understanding that I need and that you would enable me to put my trust more deeply in you and your word, to obey you always, even when I don’t understand.
Activation : Are there any situations that you are facing right now where you need wisdom, a strategy to bring a solution? Ask God for his wisdom, take courage, and obey what you hear!
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV) “Trust in The LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Deuteronomy 4:5-6 (ESV) “See, I have taught you statutes and rules, as The LORD my God commanded me, that you should do them in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. Keep them and do them, for that will be your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.””
29 June 2022. Develop Your Wisdom Muscle
“Come, sit, and reason with Me. I challenge you to change My Mind on an issue. Like Abraham or Hezekiah, develop your wisdom muscle to discuss and debate a matter with Me. Rise up and pursue Me in conversation and relationship to actively engage with Me to change My Mind.
Wrestle with Me like Jacob did in the wilderness. I AM inviting you — challenging you — to not let Me go until I have blessed you. Take hold of Me and do not let Me go until I have blessed you.
I desire intimacy with you. I desire relationship; naked, real, raw relationship. I know all your thoughts; your rising up and your sitting down; there is no need to hide. I want you to be real with Me. Love Me unconditionally — accept Me unreservedly as I accept you — and allow Me to reveal My true Self to you. As I do, I will hide you in the cleft of a rock to protect you when I show you My Glory as I did with Moses.”
“When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on their way. Then The LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him. For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of The LORD by doing what is right and just, so that The LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”
Then The LORD said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”
The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before The LORD. Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far be it from you to do such a thing — to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
The LORD said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”
Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to The LORD, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five people?”
“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”
Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”
He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”
Then he said, “May The LORD not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”
He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to The LORD, what if only twenty can be found there?”
He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”
Then he said, “May The LORD not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”
He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”
When The LORD had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.” Genesis 18:16-33 (NIV).
28 June 2022. Family
“Don’t give up! Don’t be discouraged, because I AM bringing others alongside you who will help shoulder the heavy load you have been carrying. You need a family to gather around you to encourage, love, sharpen, and push you forward! You were created for community; you were never meant to journey alone!
Lay down the false burdens that you’ve picked up or that have been placed upon you. Allow My love to wash away all your performance and striving so that you can pick up the light yoke which has been designed for you.
Each of the people that I AM bringing into your life carries a piece of the puzzle to unlock Heaven in your region. As you link arms and connect with them in a unified cause, the whole picture will come together creating a mosaic of what heavenly family looks like. Learn how to plough together in this season so you don’t burn out before reaching your destination. Pace yourself with others so you can partner with Heaven’s larger vision of harvest and restoration on the earth. See how much more you will accomplish as you work together as the unified Body of Christ!”
Prayer : Father, I recognize my need for covenant family and I repent for where I have tried to do life on my own. Help me to learn to work with others in unity to bring you glory and increase your vision on the earth.
Ephesians 4:16 (NLT) “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”
27 June 2022. Break Out of Delay
“I AM coming to pull you out of your delay, but to do this I must first break your agreement with the comfort and safety found in delay. You have become too familiar with the stillness and ease which come with delay. Enough is enough! I will not have my people limited by their own wants for ease and comfort. I AM telling you it is time to advance. To step forward you must break all agreements with delay and the comfort that it brings you.
I know it can be unfamiliar and unsettling to advance, but it is where you will come most alive. Have you not felt the sluggishness and tiredness of delay?
Step out of delay and come into the fullness of living. It’s going to be a wild ride!”
Prayer : Today, I choose to break my agreement with the spirit of delay. I break my agreement with the safety and comfort that this spirit has brought and close the door to anything trying to hold me back. I ask you Holy Spirit to come and fill me with your abundant life-giving power so that I can be placed and pulled into God’s timing . I say YES to you God and to your advancement in my life.
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
2 Corinthians 4:10 (TPT) “We continually share in the death of Jesus in our own bodies so that the resurrection life of Jesus will be revealed through our humanity.”
24 June 2022. Press In
“Come to Me all you who are weary and thirsty.
Press in to My Divine Presence and you will find there is more to Me than you ever thought possible.
I AM revealing myself to My People in new ways, for it is My Joy to commune with My Creation, My Children. Press in to your life source — My Presence — and you will find the refreshment you seek.
My beloved, you are Mine, and I AM yours.
We are joined as one, never to be parted.
There is nothing you can do or say that will push Me away. I AM never giving up on you for My Love cannot be contained. Reflect today on My Promises and speak out words of truth for they will sustain you.”
Activation : Ask Holy Spirit to remind you of God’s promises over your life. Spend time thanking him for these promises, dwelling on his goodness and faithfulness.
John 15:4-6 (MSG) “Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. I AM The Vine you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant.”
23 June 2022. Hunger
“I AM igniting your heart to burn — to hunger — with a deep longing for me where like the woman with the issue of blood, you are compelled out of desperation to push through and reach Me. I AM igniting a hunger in you that will enable you to push past the fears and doubts that would hold you back, the voices that would seek to limit or restrain you, and to push past the distractions that would pull your eyes away from Me.
I AM calling to the depths of you, inviting you to fix your eyes on me, the prize, the One who is worth any cost. I AM the One who is your all in all, the One who longs for your whole heart. I AM igniting a reciprocal response in you that answers the longing and the passion that burns in My eyes for you, My Bride.
Allow your eyes to be transfixed by the fire in mine. Close your ears to the voices of the crowd and listen for My Voice above them all. Push through to My Voice. Push through to My Side. Push through to the deliverance and freedom that is yours in Me. Push, push, push through!”
Activation : There is an invitation to linger for longer, to go deeper than before, to resist the temptation to move on too quickly, to allow your hunger for Jesus to grow and intensify. Ask The Holy Spirit if there are any areas where you are pulling back or pulling away instead of pushing through and pushing towards Jesus. If so, why? Ask Him to ignite that deep hunger in your heart so that you are so desperate for Him and Him alone that nothing will keep you from Him.
Psalm 42:7 (ESV) “Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.”
Song of Solomon 8:6 (GNBUK) “Close your heart to every love but mine; hold no one in your arms but me. Love is as powerful as death; passion is as strong as death itself. It bursts into flame and burns like a raging fire.”
22 June 2022. Get Your “Heart-Set” On Me
“Allow Me to go before you in all that you do and direct your steps. When you invite me to come into your day everything flows together for your good. Consult My Spirit to ensure you have the right “heart-set” — not mindset — at the beginning of each day.
I know your frame, your responsibilities, the requirements and the demands on your time. I know your call and the plans and purposes I have for you. More importantly, I know how to order your steps to achieve My desired results in all of those areas of your life. Seek and trust Me with all of it. Surrender is the key to tapping into My Power and Strength. Allow the outworking expression of My Gifts through you to supernaturally propel you forward.
I AM your creator and the keeper of your identity. I determine who you are. My Plans and Purposes for your life come to fruition when we work together joyfully. A fresh breath of life, vitality, and vibrancy will flow into you from me, as we reason together and you move through your day.”
Proverbs 16:9 (CSB) “A person’s heart plans his way, but The LORD determines his steps.”

21 June 2022 Oaks of Righteousness
“I have planted you as oaks of righteousness in good and fertile soil. You will take root and grow in a spacious place where living water abounds. You will be nourished through My Word and cultivated by My Hand. You will grow up alongside others in the remnant, operating in might and strength with the Holy Fear of The LORD.
You will be deeply grounded on a Biblical foundation so that when the earth shakes, you will not topple or fall. You will grow strong and tall, reaching to the heavens with a message of hope and restoration for a hurting world. You will lift your branches to the sun to receive renewed energy and stamina every morning.
I will be the one who makes you grow and fills you with the goodness of the land. You don’t need to fear what is happening around you, because I will be the one who sustains you in times of lack. Put your trust in Me and I will establish you in a secure place.”
Isaiah 61:3 (NLT) “To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that The LORD has planted for his own glory.”
Philippians 4:12-13 (NIV) “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
20 June 2022. Blessing into Breakthrough
“Are you feeling stuck? Are you feeling like you’ve been waiting for breakthrough; waiting for something to shift in your life?
I see you and I AM bringing a new warfare tactic to you at this time to help bring you into the breakthrough you are looking for.
It is a time to bless. At times we need to war, to cast out demons, to stand and fight in intercession and fasting, but right now, I AM calling you to bless. To speak and declare blessing.
It is time to speak a blessing over the situations holding you back, over the people who have hurt you, over your job, your family, your finances, your friendships, and your home.
Beloved, I have seen you fighting, seen that you are tired, but now is the time for joy to bring breakthrough. The gift of blessing and thanksgiving coming from your mouth.
Speak it out; speak it aloud. Be a voice of blessing.”
Philippians 4:19 (NIV) “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
Luke 6:38 (CSB) “Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over — will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
17 June 2022. Internal Reset
“Think about what you are thinking about.
There is a place of unbroken, uninterrupted contentment, peace, and joy that exists outside of what is happening in the world. This place is available to you, in Me.
Today, I AM calling you to be a warrior who stands watch over the peace in your heart. Become a slayer to those things that try to come against My Peace and joy in your life.”
Activation : Allow My Holy Spirit to umpire every thought that comes to you throughout the day. Become an expert at working with My Holy Spirit to process these thoughts and determine the origin and destination for each. Weigh them together with Me. We will keep and develop the good things and we will reject the thoughts that will draw you away from Me.”
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NKJV) “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”
Colossians 3:15 (NKJV) “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”
16 June 2022. A New Era of Building
“Come out from the rubble, My Children! Move out from the war-torn places where the enemy has blasted you with heavy artillery. It is a new day and the old man-made structures that have held you back in religious bondage have been torn down. I used the shaking of the past two years to remove the hindrances that have kept you blocked from entering into your promised land. It was a divine realignment to launch you into an entirely new era of freedom and liberation.
See, the whole land is before you to explore and expand into the fullness of your capacity. I will give you blueprints to build heavenly structures that will last the test of time. You will build on My rock so that you will not be shaken when the waves and the wind come to shift you. You have experienced a season of loss, but I AM about to bless you with a time of great harvest and abundance that will flow in many directions. It’s time to leave the old structures and step into the new places I have for you!”
Activation : Ask The LORD what old mindsets or “structures” He is tearing down in your life. Then ask Him what He wants to build in this new season.
Jeremiah 1:10 (NIV) “See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
Matthew 7:24 (NIV) “Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
June 14, 2022. Perseverance Brings Endurance
“I see your tiredness; I see your hardship. I see the areas where you have lost hope and where your faith has been tested so many times you are unsure of what you believe.
Do not give up!
This is the time for perseverance; this is the time to stand up and press in. Keep holding onto truth, for it is time to hope again and cling to my promises.
You might not have seen the breakthrough yet, but I AM on the move. Don’t slow down. I AM giving you endurance to keep running this race when you choose to persevere during this time.”
Psalm 86:11 (NIV) “Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.”

June 13, 2022. Let the Children See
“I AM calling you to bring your testimony forward. You have wrestled with me in the fight, but you keep it to yourself. I say to you that it is time for the children to know the battle.
There are many around you who must in turn grow up and fight, who must inherit the ground that you are taking. They have to see you fight the battles. They have to know what I have done. They have to be told.
Pull them onto your knee and tell them your testimonies . Show them your wounds and declare My Faithfulness. Set up memorial stones and answer the questions they ask.
Teach them to hear My Voice; teach them to obey Me. Let your walk with me be lived in front of them in a more open way so that they will remember your example when they are in your place.
I, The LORD, have placed children in your life and it is no small task. Feed them and train them while you have the opportunity.”
Activation : Ask The LORD to show you who the children are in your life. They may not be young in years, but those who are younger than you in the faith need to hear your testimonies. Find a way to edify one of them today with your witness of what The LORD has done.
Matthew 19:13-15 (MSG) “One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.””
June 10, 2022. Bloom
“It is time to step out and share what I have placed inside of you. I have hidden you for a time so that your roots could grow deep, but now I AM calling you out of your comfort zone.
Don’t be afraid.
Can you tell the seasons have changed?
Lean on me and I will lead the way. The confinements that once held you back are no longer there. I have pushed back the limitations and prepared a wide open space for you. You are like a budding rose ready to blossom. Now is not the time to hold back but to reveal the real you! Many will be shocked by your transformation. Some will walk away, but others will see my beauty radiating from you. This is who I created you to be. Embrace your authenticity and release the sweet aroma that brings life.
Now is the time. Bloom!”
Activation : Ask God what areas of your life have been hidden and what areas he is bringing into full bloom. Challenge yourself today to put these characteristics and gifting on display today by choosing to step out and talk to someone about the journey God has brought you on and what he is taking you into. Break your agreement with comfort and familiarity and ask God for boldness to break you out of where you have been.
Song of Songs 8:5 (NASB) “Who is this coming up from the wilderness, Leaning on her beloved?”
2 Corinthians 2:15 (TPT) “We have become the unmistakable aroma of the victory of the Anointed One to God—a perfume of life to those being saved and the odour of death to those who are perishing.”
June 9, 2022. Let it Go
“In these days of crossing over, I need you to let go of everything that once was. Bring Me all of you, everything you rely on, all your hopes and dreams. Bring it all.
It is time to let the self come to a final end. This is where you end and I begin.
Lay it all at My Feet. I will breathe life into dreams you had forgotten about and allow other things to fade away. I will tell you what to pick up again and what to leave with Me.
This is not just a new chapter, it is a new era. As the parts of you that grieve me wither away, I will resurrect you in my strength and position you for a destiny that cannot be accessed without Me.”
Activation : Write down everything that you rely on. Your finances, your work, your relationships and ask Holy Spirit to highlight any key areas. Bring your list to him in prayer and lay it all at His feet, give him permission to do as he will with it all.
John 12:24 (NIV) “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”
June 8, 2022. Birth in the Darkness
“If you look all around you with your natural eyes, there is no shortage of darkness to be found. Sometimes it is harder to find the light — but do not be fooled — I AM still here, in everything, on The Throne.
When you are feeling your way in the dark and you can’t hear Me clearly, choose to trust that I AM closer than your very breath. I AM in the deepest depths of you. I AM behind the scenes making a way where you think there can be no way.
Know that in the darkest hours and moments, when you cling on to Me — that is where I AM birthing the new in you. This is where new life begins.”
Psalm 23:4 (NIV) “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; Your Rod and Your Staff, they comfort me.”
Psalm 27:1 (NIV) “The LORD is my Light and my Salvation — whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid?”
June 7, 2022. All Obedience is Small Obedience
“My Children, you have desired greater things, and this is to be commended. But I say to you that all obedience is small obedience. My voice directs you step-by-step.
I allow you much freedom of choice, and I often love to see your choices, but there are times when I direct you intimately, and when I speak to you to obey in small ways. These are times that I am testing your heart, your willingness to die to yourself and live for Me.
Will you obey? Will you heed the gentle command as well as jump at My big announcements?
There are small things that you hold back from me out of fear, doubt, and selfishness. I AM calling them into the light, I AM calling My People to walk in integrity of the highest degree. Give me those small things as well as the big, weighty things, and see how I move mightily in favour towards you as you submit to Me.”
Activation : Is there anything you have been delaying obedience in? Let the beautiful light of The LORD search your heart for any tiny place you’ve been withholding from The LORD, and choose this day to obey.
1 Samuel 15:22 (NKJV) “So Samuel said: “Has The LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of The LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams.”
Acts 5:29-32 (NKJV) “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
June 6, 2022. Hopelessness No More
“My People, I AM The LORD God of HOPE. In Me, there is no hopeless situation! I have all Wisdom, all Might, all Power, and I have given all things over to My Children. My Children are anointed to be My Agents of Hope in the world. If you are My Child, you must partner with My Hope.
Like the weary world, you once lived in hopelessness, feeling lost and powerless, but no more! As My Agent of Hope, you must look at the world around you with the tenacious, expectant eyes of Heaven.
You must reject the greasy film of hopelessness that weighs you down and deadens your perspective. You must not speak hopeless words of despair and death over the world around you. These are the words and thoughts of an enemy, not My Words. I, The LORD, speak LIFE, and you must too!”
Activation : “Repent of partnering with hopelessness. Renounce it! Command it to leave! Then ask Me with tenacity for My Hope in your situation, in your relationships, in the world around you, even in the global things you pray over. Ask Me for My Vision and My Perspective and then declare it.”
Ephesians 2:12 (NLT) “…In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope.”
1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV) “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!”
2 Kings 6:15-16 (NASB20) “Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “This is hopeless, my master! What are we to do?”
And he said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are greater than those who are with them.””
June 3, 2022. Pick Up My Yoke
“Are you weary and burdened? Are you feeling the weight of weariness upon your shoulders? Have you cried out to me to give you relief?
Give Me your yoke; the weariness that has ground you down as well as the burdens that have weighed you down. Exchange them for My Yoke which is easy and light. Leave your yoke with Me. Do not pick your yoke back up again. I didn’t ask you to carry two yokes.”
Activation : Get down on your knees and physically act out taking off your yoke. Watch Him take the yoke. Then see The LORD’s yoke, take it, and put it upon yourself. Then ask The LORD for His Strategies/ Plan for the things you laid at His Feet.
Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Romans 8:28 (TPT) “So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.”
June 2, 2022. Never Run Dry
“You are not left dry and discarded.
You know that I AM sometimes called The Potter, and that I shape and mould your life like a potter carefully molds the clay.
So why do you feel so broken and dry? Why do you feel like tiny parts of you are in shreds; dry bits of clay stuck on the floor and of no use?
Watch beloved; a good craftsman uses all his material. A good potter takes a moist piece of clay, gathers up the old dry scraps, and molds them back into pliable clay.
Let Me gather your broken, dried areas, and I will refresh you with My Spirit and give you a sense of wholeness and purpose.”
Activation : Ask The LORD to show you any parts of you which feel dry and discarded. Renounce the lie that you are in pieces and of no use. Then ask Him to gather you and refresh you with His Spirit.
Isaiah 64:8 (NIV) “Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter. We are all transformed by your hand.”
June 1, 2022. My Boundaries
“There is often talk of a new season and being aware of the times you are in.
Today, I AM releasing a deeper awareness of my boundaries. I mean when I have led you to a new place and I want to place my boundary of growth, expansion, and protection around you. For some, this may mean a new call, a geographical relocation, a new relationship or a new revelation and mindset.
Don’t be like Lot’s wife who kept looking back, for I have made a way of escape for you.
Don’t be like the Israelites who grumbled and went round and round in circles, unable to step into the new.
Don’t be like the Scribes and Pharisees, so tied up with religious rules there was no space for relationship with me.
They all put their boundaries around their lives and were restricted as a result.
Open your heart to me and my boundaries, for they are good. For a season my good hand may even be restricting some of you, for I AM actually protecting you. For others, I AM releasing you. Again, I say, choose my boundaries.”
Activation : Repent of restricting yourself and ask The LORD not just to show you your season but your change of boundary. Is He encouraging you to change something, show your willingness to change by stepping forward as a symbol of a new Godly boundary.
Psalm 16:6 (NIV) “The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”
Ephesians 1:11-12 (MSG) “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.”
