Daily prophecy for October, 2023, republished with the kind permission of the Global Prophetic Alliance. Every Monday — Friday.
31 October 2023. Lean In, Look, and Listen
“In these coming days do not be deceived by what you see in the world around you or let the words of the world taint your vision or your voice. I AM The Father of Truth. Do not give into your circumstances in these coming days; do not bow down to the things the world teaches you about the ways of the world and the wars that are raging around you in the natural and in the spiritual realms. Trust only in my voice in this season, in my leading, and in My Guiding. If you are lead by Me fully then I will not let your foot slip from the path I have for you.
Walk with me and listen to my footsteps as they guide you in the way to go. I ask you not to give into fear in this season but to trust in Me. I AM asking you to come up higher in this season, to look into the spirit and to see with clarity, wisdom and understanding, to listen and to hear My Voice with accuracy and precision. I will not fail you. Lean in, look, and listen and I will be your guide. You are safe with Me for I do not give as the world gives.”
Activation : With an open heart, come before The LORD and ask him if there have been any places where your heart has been tarnished by political ideals and views, worldly structures, and thought patterns that do not align with God’s thought patterns and processes or biblical views. Allow Him to meet you in these places of purification and to realign you to His thoughts and mindsets. Repent for any partnerships with wrong mindsets and allow him to realign your thought patterns to be in line with Him.
John 14:27 (NIV) “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
Proverbs 3:5-7 (ESV) “Trust in The LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear The LORD, and turn away from evil.”
30 October 2023. Shaped by The Shepherd
“My Sheep know My Voice. I have sung over you, as shepherds do for their sheep – you have heard My Cry over you and I have revealed My Heart to you. You have heard my voice many times, you know the way that I speak to you — the union and intimacy that we share.
My Sheep know My Protection. I have fought lions and bears for you. Whatever threat has come against you, I have stood on your behalf. Even while you were resting, I was watching over you.
My Sheep know My Dedication. When you have wandered far from my purposes, I have pursued you and sought you out — not allowing you to be lost. For I AM The God of the marginalised, the weary and the burdened. I have rescued you and bound your wounds.
My Sheep know My Correction. When you have needed to know boundaries and a ‘no’ for your own sake, I have corrected you and realigned your heart back to Me. I have kept you in the places you needed to be to grow, and to learn.
My Sheep know My Provision. I have led you to green pastures, I have provided for your needs and taken pleasure in your good grazing. When the land beneath you has dried, I have brought you to new and plentiful places.
Your life is the story of how you have been shaped by me, your Good Shepherd. For I AM only good. And My Purposes in your life are only good, regardless of the season that you are in.
A shepherd is a place of comfort and refuge for the sheep, but he is also a symbol of strength and protection. I AN The God of your comfort — the safe place you run to, but I AM also The God Who defends and protects you — Who stands in righteousness and power. Do not be so focused on Me shepherding you in comfort, that you miss My Protection and Power.”
Activation : Ask Jesus what season of shepherding you are in with him now. Is it revelation, protection, rescue, dedication, correction, provision – or something else? Ask The Holy Spirit to bring to you a deeper understanding of your season now. And what is he leading you into? Pray — Lord, thank-you for being my shepherd, whatever season I am in. Show me how to follow your lead, and to truly understand what it means to be shepherded by you.
Ezekiel 34:11-16 (NIV) “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness. I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land. I will tend them in a good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land. There they will lie down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice.”
27 October 2023. It Belongs to Me
“Yes, there are great battles going on in the world, but remember, I have the victory. I know the beginning from the end, and nothing is a surprise to Me. Show Faith by walking without fear as this time is for My Glory to be revealed in all the earth.
I AM uprooting, replanting, and repurposing many of My People for such a time as this.
Now is not the time to remain silent but to stand.
In these days it is vitally important that you wear My full Armour. Declare that you wear My Armour! Every piece of My Armour has a purpose and it is essential that My People — who are called by My Name — stand in the fullness of My Armour.”
Activation : Declare Ephesians 6:11-19 over yourself, family, friends, community and keep declaring this over the coming days.
Psalm 91:1-2 (ESV) “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to The LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.””
Colossians 3:1-2 (ESV) “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
26 October 2023. Count the Cost
“I have heard your cries for more of My Spirit. I have heard your cries to save the lost. My Heart is to answer those prayers and yet you are not ready! My Spirit is Holy and wants to fill purified and willing vessels who will be obedient to My Voice. Who will step out and speak out for Me? Have you searched your own hearts and minds as to why you want My Spirit?
Are your motives Holy and pure?
You are the vessels I want to use, to proclaim My Gospel, to share My Love, but have you counted the cost of speaking out? Have you counted the cost of sharing My Love? Have you counted the cost of the changes I will bring?
Remember what it cost My Son and remember those who have gone before you — what it cost them. Are you able to stand up against the flack? Are you able to hold your ground when people curse and revile you?
I will fill you with my Spirit to make you bold and strong but you will need to learn to hold your ground and to trust in the leading of My Spirit.”
Activation : Sit with Father God and examine your motives for the prayers for revival you are praying. Do you really want to see lots of people saved, healed, and delivered? This will be a move that will cause much change in your church and fellowship. Or is it just the warm fuzzy feelings you are after? Ask Him to reveal any wrong motives and selfish thoughts. Repent of these ask for the Holy Spirit to create in you a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within you. Ask Him to fill you with love for the lost and strengthen you to stand your ground.
Ephesians 6:13-18 (ESV) “Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”
1 John 3:3 (GNT) “Everyone who has this hope in Christ keeps himself pure, just as Christ is pure.”
Romans 10:14-15 (ESV) “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!””
25 October 2023. Spirit Led
“Continue on the path set before you. Look ahead but not with your physical eyes.
Look with your spirit. Peer into the realm of My creation for there is so much to see and know.
Do you not believe that I AM speaks of such things?
When was the last time you read My word, for it speaks of such things.
My words, My essence, My thoughts have been passed down for generations, bound into books for others to read and study.
I AM spoke then and I AM speaks now. But are you listening?
Ask Me! I give wisdom and I give it generously. But first let us sit and commune together.”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit what he’d like to share with you today. Listen and then write/type what you hear being spoken or shown to you in a vision. Date the communication.
Psalm 85:8 (NLT) “I listen carefully to what God The LORD is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways.”
Romans 8:14 (ESV) “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.”
Romans 8:16 (NLT) “For His Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.”
24 October 2023. The Right Place
“My honourable, honest, pure people: I see you running with me, for My Kingdom’s sake. I know your life is laid down for Me, yet you are not in the right place. You ask, ‘How can this be? I have listened to you, I have obeyed you Lord.’
You have, and you continue to do so, but I see all things. Sit with me and confess when you have found your life difficult, especially when others are flourishing in gifts or areas where you believe you are called. You insist that your focus, your life is devoted to serving me, but your heart and emotions are not always in the right place.
Things do not come to you on a plate served up to you and circumstances can be testing. Avoid dropping into the depths of your emotions by instead trusting Me. I do not fail, and my love casts out fear.
Allow Me to stretch you with my love in these hard areas. Not effort or striving, but My love. I know your heart, including your reactions to the word love. Ask Me what I AM doing and how I will grow you in these situations.
Do not just grit your teeth and put up with it. There is more to me growing you into Christ than you just putting up with hardship.
I AM next to you, and within you. I AM ahead of you and behind you. Stay in my love; serve out of My Love. Ask Me again to be filled.
Remain in My Love, for like My Peace it passes all understanding.”
Prayer : Lord, I gladly move back under your loving arms. I want to stay there and feel loved under your care. I trust you.
Psalm 91:4 (MSG) “Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” That’s right- he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you- under them you are perfectly safe; His arms fend off all harm.”
Psalm 31:7 (NLT) “I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul.”
Luke 10:41- 42 (NIV) ““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.””
23 October, 2023. Movable Foundations
“The foundations that you have in Me are deep, strong, and steadfast. We have been through seasons of work together to prepare, strengthen, and uphold them. Now you are rooted, grounded, and firm in who you are and who I have created you to be.
But My Purpose in shaping your foundations was never for them to only stay in one place, to only serve the land in which they stand. My Purpose was to create foundations that are not only strong but will withstand the flex of movement.
I AM calling you now to bring forth your firm foundations and move. Move into the places that I call you. There are territories with unstable ground that are desperate for people that bring the strength and maturity of tested foundations.
I have forged you for such a time as this.
Hold firm in what you carry, for I AM calling you to places that will call for you to dig deep and place your foundations in ground that will be rocky. But when you remain in me you will not be defeated by the shaking.
Check your foundations regularly for cracks and signs of wear and tear — bring them to me and we will strengthen and heal them together. For it is only by partnership with My Spirit that you will have the understanding and discernment to do this effectively.
I honour your faithfulness and your unwavering determination to stand strong in Me. Now honour Me by moving your foundations to the places that I have called you; to the places that need the strength and tested wisdom that you carry.”
Activation : Ask Jesus to show you the foundations that you have built together. Ask Him to show you the places that He has strengthened within you already, thanking Him for how far you have come. Ask Him to show you any places that have cracks or wear and tear. Ask Him to show you where He is leading you to move — is it geographic, work, church, friendship groups?
Colossians 2:6-7 (MSG) “My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.”
Matthew 7:24-25 (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. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”
20 October, 2023. Framework
“This is a season of being strengthened to steward My Glory. To be able to bear the weight of My Glory, your entire being — your entire physical framework — must be refined and prepared for impartation. The impact of My Glory will crush you if you skip the process of preparation I have for you. This process will look different for each person but the purpose remains the same — to ensure that you are ready to carry this mantle.
Do you love Me?
The process I have for each of you is dependent on a foundation of unshakeable love being firmly established in your very core. It is that joy of love shared — you for me and I for you — that will crack open the dry places within you, freeing up space for me to move and prepare you for more.
Children, rest in me throughout this process and resist the temptation to grow weary. There is grace in this time to go again, fully leaving behind what is no longer relevant.”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit to show you the dry places within you that God is working on to prepare you for more of His Glory. With this understanding in mind, praise Him and thank Him for the good work He is doing within you. Next, dwell on the things you love about Father God. Tell Him these things. Share with Him what you are grateful for and what character traits you love. Allow yourself to be overcome with the feelings of love you hold for Him.
Hebrews 12:10-11 (TPT) “Our parents corrected us for the short time of our childhood as it seemed good to them. But God corrects us throughout our lives for our own good, giving us an invitation to share his holiness. Now all discipline seems to be painful at the time, yet later it will produce a transformation of character, bringing a harvest of righteousness and peace to those who yield to it.”
Songs of Songs 6:3 (ESV) “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine . . . “
19 October, 2023. Divine Purpose
“Beloved, do not be discouraged when it is not obvious what I AM doing in your circumstances, for I have promised to never leave you or forsake you.
Esther became Queen over the entire Persian Empire and was celebrated for her beauty, power, and influence. However, had she looked at her position from a purely human perspective, she would have missed its divine purpose.
When Queen Esther was called upon to speak to the king and expose the plot to kill the Jews, her position was put at risk. If the king failed to acknowledge her, she would be put to death!
Discouragement could have so easily defeated her but instead she chose to seek my face, trust, pray, arrange prayer support and walk straight into her God-given Purpose! Esther’s actions ultimately saved the entire Jewish people, allowed me to take out their enemy and preserved the lineage of my son, Jesus who liberated all creation through his death and resurrection! Now that is Testimony! So today my Beloved, do not look at your circumstances but instead, fix your gaze on me. Do not be discouraged! Hold your God-given course, partner with my purposes and watch what I will do!”
A prayer to pray: Dear Lord Jesus, today I hand to you all my positions and circumstances. I know you have a plan and purpose in my life and I want to partner with you in it. Please show me the changes I need to make to come into complete alignment with your will. Guard my heart from frustration and discouragement when I am positioned correctly but can’t see what your plans are yet. Please lead me, in your timing, right into my God given Purpose!
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
Esther 4:14 (NIV) “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Romans 8:28 (NIV) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
18 October 2023. Muck In
“My faithful servant, don’t be surprised by the season of hard work that is ahead of you. Moments of blood, sweat and tears are inevitable. At times the labour will feel dull and monotonous, as if you were on a production line without seeing the end product. But know that there is joy waiting at the end of the day. I AM right behind you, cheering you on. Roll up your sleeves, stay put, and get it done. Don’t give up!
Get into the rhythm that I set before you. Listen out for my beat and sense My Pace. Keeping in pace with me is vital at this time. If you step outside of my rhythm, the work will become even harder.
As King Solomon’s temple was being built, the bricks were laid one at a time. The end result was magnificent. Look at the bigger picture and know that you are not just laying bricks. It has Kingdom purpose! Render your service to Me with a joyful heart and I will sustain you and back you up with physical and emotional capacity.”
1. Spend some time reflecting on if you have procrastinated in a certain area. Ask The LORD for original ideas and fresh vision if you find that you lack motivation.
2. Are there any practical goals to be accomplished in the next few weeks? Ask God if you are in sync with His timeline, or if anything needs re-adjusting.
Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV) “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for The LORD and not for men, knowing that from The LORD you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving The LORD Christ.”
Psalm 128:2 (NLV) “For you will eat the fruit of your hands. You will be happy and it will be well with you.”
Proverbs 16:3 (NIV) “Commit to The LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
17 October 2023. Seek Wisdom
“I see that you are striving for answers and solutions for your business and finances, but where are you looking for these answers? Wisdom is being gained that is not mine.
True wisdom comes from Me, I AM the one who provides you with the wisdom for new ideas and innovations. I AM the one who provides the wisdom and solutions for those who have no answers. I reveal the secrets and mysteries to you, which will cause you to move forward. But you must earnestly and diligently seek Me for My Wisdom. If you call to Me, I will answer you and reveal great, marvelous, and wonderful things that you cannot achieve on your own.
Just like the widow woman who cried out to the Prophet Elisha for help because she knew that he would have an answer from Me, you too must cry out to Me, and I will provide you with the strategies that will cause you to increase and live in My overflow.”
Activation : God is a master strategist who provides wisdom and insight to navigate the new. It is by The LORD that wisdom to build sustainably comes. Take some time to sit with The Holy Spirit and ask Him to reveal to you the new innovations that he has for you in your sphere of influence. Be sure to ask Him for the steps that are required to bring these ideas forward. Be bold and most of all, be obedient to his commands.
Isaiah 48:17 (AMPC) “Thus says The LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I AM The LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go.”
Deuteronomy 8:18 (AMPC) “But you shall [earnestly] remember The LORD your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”
16 October 2023. Wage War
“Stand up warriors! There has been a battle waging with fear and intimidation these past months and each day that you have not given in, you have grown in stature, strength, and understanding. When you wage a battle you come to understand your enemy’s tactics. You learn their methods and default settings.
I have been allowing you to feel this pressure not so that you will be crushed, but so that you might learn how to swiftly defeat this enemy each and every time. You stand before a series of opening doorways.
Fear and intimidation would try to creep in, seeking to stop you from walking through by stealing away your hope and expectancy. Tell fear to go. Tell intimidation it is a liar. Rise up in this battle learning how to fully silence these enemies.
For you know that, “I AM the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6, NIV). Face fear and intimidation head on, knowing that they will crumble as you rise up in faith and expectancy.”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit to show you the threshold you are standing before in the spirit and with his leading, enter into a time of thanksgiving and prayer for where you have seen victory in your life over fear and intimidation. With those reminders of successful past victories in mind, transition into a time of intercession against fear and intimidation not only for yourself, but for the entire body of Christ.
Proverbs 29:25 (TPT) “Fear and intimidation is a trap that holds you back. But when you place your confidence in The LORD, you will be seated in the high place.”
2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV) “For the Spirit of God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
13 October 2023. Prepare the Way
“My child, I have chosen you for a specific purpose, evident by the desires of your heart. Your adversary is constantly firing darts of prevention at you like insecurity, ridicule, doubt, intimidation, depression, fatigue, fear, etc. I understand this warfare can become very overwhelming, causing you to question yourself. In these wavering moments, I ask:
What if Moses ran from the burning bush?
What if Noah didn’t build the arc?
What if Gideon didn’t push past doubt?
What if David didn’t slay the giant?
What if Esther didn’t approach the king?
What if Elijah backed out of the showdown?
What if Abraham didn’t have any sons?
What if Mary rejected the Holy Spirit?
What if John didn’t prepare the people’s hearts through baptism?
Do you see that each person could have retreated, but they chose not to? And do you see that each person’s victory helped prepare the way for Christ?
Now, My chosen one, your victories are needed to prepare the way for Christ’s return.
I AM still writing history. If you choose to overcome, I will add your accomplishments to the most incredible manuscript of all time. I will lead you in achieving more than you ever dreamed possible. You too will do great things like lead people into the promised land, build, command armies, hold scepters, influence kings, manifest My great power, bear good fruit and make disciples of many nations.
Push past that old serpent! For there are no “what if’s” in My Kingdom. Only victory, and with Me, it is already yours.”
Activation : Acknowledge that you are chosen, and God wants to use you to prepare the way of The LORD. Ask God where your areas of influence are and how He wants to use you each and every day. Identify any darts of prevention that have fired against you. Overcome each one by standing on Truth and using your power and authority to destroy it. Then, go and walk out your purpose in victory as God has called you to!
1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
Hebrews 12:1-3 (NIV) “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 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.”
12 October 2023. Heavy Glory
“My Presence is heavy — but My Burden is light. Do you want to know what it means to carry My heavy Glory? Trust My Process. Every challenge and trial is an invitation into greater reliance on Me. Every situational submission is an invitation for Me to overwhelm and consume you into My likeness and purpose.
Why is the mantle heavy but the burden light?
To fully walk with me is to know the fullness and the rich weight of My Presence. To live and function in it is to submit fully to letting go of everything and relinquishing it to Me. If every thought and action is an easy instinctive reaction to My Prompting, you can do anything I lead you to do. Do not think you are promoted because of your worthiness. You are promoted because of your reliance on Me. Every trial and challenge is an invitation into greater reliance on Me.
Every yes to Me is an opportunity for me to increase the weight of presence that envelops and consumes you. To you it is lightness and freedom and ease, to the world around you it will be the presence of My heavy Glory.”
Activation : Bring to mind the struggle you are presently experiencing. How can you say yes to The LORD in it? How can it be used to greater lead you into reliance on Him. Thank Him for the honour of being trained in paths of righteousness and being chosen to be called into even greater reliance in order to to display His strength.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NIV) “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I AM weak, then I AM strong.”
2 Corinthians 4:17 NIV “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
Psalm 23: 3 NIV “He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”
11 October 2023. Display My Splendor
“Are you ready for what I have for you to carry? Rest assured, I have made you to carry this weight.
I AM placing on you a mantle and it is a mantle that is heavy in its richness. You are to carry and display the weight of my glory. That mantle is My Love.
It is heavy in the richness of its finery. It is a garment of praise for the displaying of my splendour. No longer is it appropriate for you to be hidden. I AM displaying you in spiritual clothes that dictate the nature of your calling and purpose. I AM calling you into visibility!
In this season as I call you into greater unity with me and greater likeness, I AM clothing you in My priestly garments that you may declare the praises of him who called you. Just like Israel made Joseph a coat of many colours to publicly display his favour and affection, so too I AM dressing you in vibrant colour to display my affection and favour for you!
Stand up priest! Declare my praises! Those who hate Me will hate you. Those who love Me will love you. Let your light shine before men — that they may glorify Me!”
Activation : Close your eyes. Visualise and drink in the reality that The LORD has clothed you in priestly garments, garments of praise, garments that display his affection for you. Choose to agree with His desire to publicly display you that it may give glory to Him.
1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
Isaiah 61:10 (NIV) ” . . For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
Matthew 5:14-15 (NIV) “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.”
10 October 2023. Valley of Your Heart
“Is your heart full of Me? Or do worldly things creep in, stealthily filling the valleys of your heart with pain and loathing and offence? It’s time for a heart check with Me as your Guide. Walk with Me through the valleys of your heart, as we search hand-in-hand together. Allow Me to wash the deep places clean and fill them with My love.
For love overcomes offence. Love is the battlecry into becoming unoffendable. Let love be your guiding light as you walk out of offence into the generous, outrageous, wall-busting, heart-trembling, wildly triumphant love of God.
Don’t let the world set the culture of your heart. It’s time to get rid of the old — old wounds, old grievances, old chains that no longer are yours to carry. Make the conscious choice to take them off and run joyfully into My Freedom.
Learn to use love as a shield to repel that which the enemy would have you hold as offences, and release peace instead. Where there is hate, show love. Where there is hurt, release forgiveness. Become unoffendable and confound those around you by sharing My love in all things.”
A prayer to say over yourself today: “Father, thank you for Your wildly magnificent love of Me. Teach me how to love others the way you love them. Show me how to be unoffendable and hold onto Your peace in all things and all situations. Amen.”
Romans 12:21 (NIV) “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Proverbs 18:19 (ESV) “A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city.”
9 October 2023. Meet Me in the Valley
“In this season of new beginnings, come meet Me in the valley to hear what you need for this time. Meet Me in the quiet place and take refuge under My Wing. Come with paper and pen to capture the dreams and visions I have waiting for you. For this is the birthing of new things.
For those called to business, I will bless you with new ideas. For those called into creative arts, I will bless you with new ways of creation. For those called into industry, I will give you new strategies and new wisdom and new thoughts. For these are the days of invention!
Come to Me and take part in creation, for the One who created you is giving you divine creation abilities in this moment. Be deliberate and put appointments in your calendar to sit and create with Me. For this is the moment where obedience to God-given dreams will meet the glory of God.”
Activation : Put some time aside to sit with God and ask Him “What is the dream you have for me?” Write down what The LORD shares and any creation strategies
Ezekiel 3:22-23 (ESV) “And the hand of The LORD was upon me there. And He said to me, “Arise, go out into the valley and there I will speak to you.” So I arose and went out into the valley, and behold, the glory of The LORD stood there, like the glory I had seen by the Chebar canal, and I fell on my face.”
6 October 2023. Send it Packing
“Fear brings torment, dread, and uncertainty. You no longer need that friend. It has been a dependency long enough and it is time to let it go. Send it packing!
See fear as a person that is speaking to you, as someone that has been invited to your dinner table and is sitting next to you in your car. Its voice you are too familiar with. When you stop allowing it a place in your life it will no longer be there. Peace is a gift that belongs to you freely at any time. Invite me to your dinner table and communicate with me in your car, allow me to be the friend you depend on. I AM loyal and kind and ready to replace what fear has brought with my love, peace, and joy.”
Activation : Speak this out loud: Fear I AM no longer partnering with you, and you no longer have a seat at any table I sit at. You are not my friend, and I will not depend on, lean on, or allow you access to any part of my life. Lord, I repent for listening to the voice of the enemy and depending on anything other than you. Father help me hear you more clearly. Thank you for giving me authority over the enemy and for the gift of Peace. I receive your love and joy you long to give me. Amen.
1 John 4:18 (KJV) “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
Isaiah 61:10 (NLV) “I will have much joy in The LORD. My soul will have joy in my God, for He has clothed me with the clothes of His saving power. He has put around me a coat of what is right and good, as a man at his own wedding wears something special on his head, and as a bride makes herself beautiful with stones of great worth.”
5 October 2023. Find the Pearls
“My Dear Child, There are people around you every day who you do not see. Like oysters on the seabed who form inner pearls through hardship, they too are filled with great wealth that has formed through suffering in their lives.
Unable to free themselves from circumstances and in need of protection, they often clam shut, struggling to engage with the world around them.
Today, I AM asking you, will you be My “Pearl Fishers”? Are you willing to dive into the depths of human circumstance with The Holy Spirit to set the captives free? Will you lay down your own views and opinions and allow Holy Spirit to guide you to those who need My help? Take time to let me show you how I see them, for it is through this fresh perspective that you will be able to spiritually discern the strategies needed to bring my true freedom. You see, I have come that all would have life, and have it to the full!”
Activation : Take a moment and ask The Holy Spirit if there is anyone he has brought into your life that He wants you to connect with. Repent of any negative opinions you have of them and hand these to God. Now start to pray for them. Ask The Holy Spirit to help you to see them through His eyes. Then ask Him how He wants you to support them.
1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV) ” . . The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but The LORD looks at the heart.”
John 10:10 (NKJV) “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Isaiah 58:6-9 (NKJV) “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you.”
4 October 2023. Walk in Contentment
“My child, don’t think that you always have to be doing things for me. Your Identity is not in your ministry or your work. Being My Child is enough. Find contentment in this and learn to find fulfillment in each season.
In the next period of time I AM taking the pressure off. Pressure to perform or achieve. Let go of the demands of other people. Unveil your true face. The walls of discouragement are coming down.
The enemy wants you to either walk in a frantic, preoccupied state, or lull you into sleep in an apathetic state. I want you to simply surrender to my word and partner with what I AM doing.
I will give you new wisdom in how to be content. I will show you how to be content in your coming and your going. How to be content when you minister and when you are in a season of waiting. In victories and in losses.
Don’t voice what is not happening, instead ask for My Solution. I will show you what to focus on so you can continue your journey with My Peace and from a place of rest.”
Activation : Take some time to reflect on which areas God wants you to find more contentment. Are there areas you need to surrender to God or even let go of? Give Him any pressure or disappointment that has occupied your mind recently. Ask Him to replace it with supernatural peace and restore rest within you.
Philippians 4:11b-12 (NIV) “For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 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.”
1 Timothy 6:6-7 (NIV) “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”
3 October 2023. Nothing is Wasted
“Life can seem boring and mundane as you go through the routine and tedious tasks that form your everyday life. But nothing you do is wasted in My Kingdom! Every task, however small, is part of My training and plan.
Remember David, who looked after his Father’s sheep in the wilderness?
For much of his time he was alone, but in that solitude he learnt intimacy with Me. This enabled him to make right choices as he waited patiently to be declared King after his anointing by Samuel, and I could declare him ‘a man after my own heart.’
He protected the sheep from lions and bears and in doing so became proficient with a sling shot, enabling him to defeat the giant Goliath. The mundane skills of a shepherd and yet I used them for my Glory!
I AM leading you! I AM growing you!
What you are doing now may not feel exciting but remember, I AM with you and I know the plans I have for you.”
Activation : Spend some time today talking to Father God and express any frustrations you are experiencing. Ask Him to help you see the skills you are learning and how you can know joy in the tasks you complete. Think of a difficult situation you had in the past, and note some of the skills and gifts you used to alleviate or resolve them. Praise God for His goodness to you and thank Him for the training He gave you to enable you to walk through it into victory.
Romans 8:28 (ESV) “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Acts 13:22 (ESV) “And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, ‘I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’
Colossians 3:23-24(ESV) “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for The LORD and not for men, knowing that from The LORD you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving The LORD Christ.”
2 October 2023. I Will Provide
“I AM The LORD and I do not change. What I have done in the past I will do today. I AM the God of miracles; I AM the all-sufficient God, I AM El Shaddai.
Let Me bear the weight of your provision, for have I not said that I will supply all your needs? Trust Me to already know what is required and trust that I can and will provide for you even in the most extreme circumstances. When it looks as if you are at your last and all is lost, I will provide.
Regardless of the situation or circumstance, no matter how big, I AM Jehovah Jireh and I can and will provide. I can create something from nothing, AM I not the Creator of Heaven and Earth? Believe Me for the bigger, expect Me for the greater.
Increase your faith.
I AM the faithful God, trust in my faithfulness to provide for you in all situations no matter the need. Do not allow your circumstances to determine your outcome when I AM the one who can shift things in an instant. No situation is too big, and no circumstance is too dire for me, for I AM God! Know that even in the midst of seasons of drought, I will provide for you with all-sufficiency.
I AM the God of multiplication. I AM the one who gives seed to the Sower; I AM a master at turning seeds into great and mighty things, and I can turn a little into abundance. Bring Me your little and watch Me multiply it. Come out of the grips of lack which slowly kills the body and depletes the soul and come into the promise of life by trusting Me.”
Activation : God will always provide; however, we also have a part to play in partnering with his plans:
SEEK – Seek God first for His plan and His word on the matter. (Matthew 6:33) Ask Him for His instructions which include the steps that you are to take and when to take them.
OBEY – Once you have heard from The LORD and received his instructions, DO as you are instructed to do (Isa. 1:19)
TRUST – Trust in His faithfulness. If God said it, then He will do it (Numbers 43:19). God’s word never returns to Him without accomplishing what He sent it to do (Isaiah 55:11). Each word is a seed with an assignment to produce and to bring forth God’s plan.
STAND – Don’t allow circumstances to shift you away from what God said, stand in unwavering faith, and BELIEVE HIM!
“But after a while the brook dried up, for there was no rainfall anywhere in the land. Then The LORD said to Elijah, “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.” So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, “Would you please bring me a little water in a cup?” As she was going to get it, he called to her, “Bring me a bite of bread, too.” But she said, “I swear by The LORD your God that I don’t have a single piece of bread in the house. And I have only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil in the bottom of the jug. I was just gathering a few sticks to cook this last meal, and then my son and I will die.” But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. For this is what The LORD, the God of Israel, says: There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when The LORD sends rain and the crops grow again!” So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days. There was always enough flour and olive oil left in the containers, just as The LORD had promised through Elijah.” 1 Kings 17:7-16 NLT
“And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.” Luke 12:28-31 NLT
