29 May 2020. Harvest Ready.
The fields are white for I have prepared a great harvest. Where is your sickle? Get up and go out into the harvest. I call you up! I thrust you out! You are equipped, ready for this precious calling. All around you, voices are crying out in pain saying, ‘Where is the God of my fathers?’ I will lead you to the ones that I have prepared for the sickle. An abundance of souls is waiting. Go out into the harvest. Bring the people to Me.
Psalm 67:6,7 “The harvest of the earth is here! God, the very God we worship, keeps us satisfied at his banquet of blessings. And the blessings keep coming! Then all the ends of the earth will give him the honor he deserves and be in awe of him!”
Matthew 9:36-38 “When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain!””
28 May 2020. Come Out into Joy!
I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “You have not been forgotten or buried at this time! No matter how you feel, whether you feel isolated, forgotten or even hidden, it’s a lie of the enemy. This time of ‘lock-down’ has not been about hiding you away, but I have planted you for this time. I have shaken your very foundations, not for your downfall, but for clearing away the surplus, the stuff that has gathered in and around you and was keeping you in a ‘stuck’ place. You knew you were stuck, but in some cases, you hadn’t a clue how it had come about or indeed how to get out of it.
I have been clearing away the surplus so that you can come forth ready to answer My Call on your life. I have planted and I have tended you in order to encourage your growth and your prosperity. Let My Joy not only permeate your being but let it overflow to all that is around you. Let My Joy out everywhere you go as you sow seeds of greatness and joy. You are my child and I have great plans for you!”
Isaiah 55:11-12 “So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth, it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. For you shall go out with joy and be led out with peace, the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you and the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
27 May 2020. Remember How to Play!
I heard The LORD say, “You have forgotten how to play!
Remember playing as a child with the gifts you had been given? Do you remember the ease of playing, the ease of laughter, the ease of getting lost in your imagination and the excitement of finding out what you could do?
I have given you gifts, and I invite you to remember how to play! Let’s play together! Let Me remind you of what you can do and how much fun it is! Let Me restore the laughter and joy and let the childlikeness within you bubble up again!
Explore, use your imagination, push your creativity, and try to:
– Pick up a pen or paintbrush.
– Pick up your instrument.
– Open your cookbook.
– Take a walk without looking at the clock.
– Play with your children.
Today, remember how to play. Enjoy the moment and what’s in your hand for I will use them in new ways to reveal Myself to you and to glorify Myself through you!”
Matthew 18:4 NLT “So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Ephesians 2:10 NLT “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
26 May 2020. Destiny
“Let’s talk about destiny.
I want to re-awaken destiny in you today. I want you to recognise that your life is more moulded in my hands than you think. I do not put it down and pick it back up; it is ever being moulded and changed as you surrender more and more to me. The malleability may change, the texture may change, the movement may change, but it is always — ALWAYS — in My Hand.
So why do you doubt that you have a destiny? Did I not say that I have a plan and purpose for your life?* Did I not whisper to you in the night of the adventures we were to go on? Did I not say that I would take that wrong and make it right, and take that pain and make it beautiful?
Let’s talk about destiny. And the first step? Believe that you have one that is God-given and wonderfully made.”
*Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Psalm 31:15 “My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.”
Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
25 May 2020: A Time of Consecration
God is humbling us in this time of rest. He is moving in a way that most have not seen and taking this time to simplify the busyness of our lives. He wants to show us that by laying down some of the comforts of our lives we in turn will grow closer to Him.
The Spirit of God calls you to ask Him – “What is it that I need to give up that is distracting me from growing closer to YOU and from seeing the calling on my life?”
He is calling you to then lay it down as He wants to show you a new closeness that you have never felt during this season of change and transformation. Will you lay it down? Will you let Him show you?
Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God — this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
22 May 2020: Patient Hope
“This is a call to persevere. I call you ‘My patient one’. You are producing the beautiful fruit that grows only from the painful soil of waiting in hope. I thank you for your faithful expectation and your unwavering determination to wait for me. I AM ready to move, at just the right time. There is coming a fulfillment of all your expectations, along with so much more than you could ask or imagine. I AM not slow. I AM coming. Persevere.”
Romans 5:3-5 TPT “Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!”
21 May 2020: Will You Trust Me?
“I have never let you down before, and I’m not about to start now! But you have to trust Me and My ways and stop trying to fit me into your boxes. My thoughts are not your thoughts and my ways are not your ways. Lay down your preconceived ideas and let me do it my way. When you hold on to your own thoughts and ways, you limit me. I AM bigger! I AM wider! I AM higher! I AM deeper than anything you can ever imagine; my plans for you are bigger, wider, higher and deeper than anything you can imagine or even think!
Let Me do it my way. Rest in Me and trust me to answer your prayers, expectations, desires the way I want to. And yes, it might not look like you planned, but it WILL be the very best way for you!”
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says The LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Psalm 16:10-11 “For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life. In Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
20 May 2020. I AM the Expert!
“Do you realise that I AM the expert? Have you sought me before seeking the experts on Earth? For I formed man out of the dust and I formed woman out of a rib. I AM the beginning! Alpha and Omega! I know how to do all things!
Would you seek me for solutions, for health, for financial answers, for new ways and new ideas? I AM looking for those who will seek me. I will lead you and guide you into ALL TRUTH of my Kingdom as THE ONE who breathes life itself into those who consider themselves the experts.
Spend some time seeking Me as THE ANSWER to all of Earth’s questions.”
Genesis 2:21-22 “So The LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then The LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.”
John 16:13 NASB “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”
19 May 2020. Exercise!
“Just as you look after your physical body at this time, I’m calling you to exercise your spiritual body. Every muscle gets stronger with practice and consistency, and today I want you to do a spiritual workout with Me! Practice hearing my voice, practice speaking new and fresh tongues, practice words of knowledge and practice writing new, spontaneous worship! There is a grace today for you to exercise your inner man! You may get deflated or out of breath, but keep persevering. I’ve already shown up, and now I’m waiting for you! Pick up your Bible, and let me release spiritual weight on you.”
Ephesians 3:16 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”
18 May 2020. Highway of Holiness
I see a road being constructed, slicing forward into beautiful virgin wilderness. I am offended, seeing only destruction, and I cry out.
But the Spirit of The LORD says, “No! This is a highway of holiness. I AM taking you forward into places you have never been before. The past is finished, the new has begun. I AM the Ancient of Days. My Word stands forever. Come up, come up, ascend! The Highway of Holiness is already built. Only My righteous ones walk on it. No wild beasts are there, nor are there any shadows or pitfalls. I call you up — if you are willing — into the day of my power.”
Leap forward with unbridled joy into the unknown. You are one who is led by The LORD. Be filled with His power, confident in His truth, untouchable, undefeated, blessed and equipped. The way is open. The momentum is forwards only.
Isaiah 35:8-10 “And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of The LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
15 May 2020. Eat of My Glory Feast!
“Today, I AM inviting you to my feast in the heavenlies. Come and bask in the glory of My abundance — the place I long for you to dwell. Step out of poverty of spirit, lack and wearing thin; today, I want to bless you with my glory feast. Come up to the heavenlies and taste the fruits, smell the freshly baked goods and see the richness of every colour. Dwell in the glory. Enjoy the glory. Feast in the glory!”
Spend time with God today, away from distractions and stresses, and ask The LORD to show you what He is feeding you today of His abundant glory feast. Enjoy the richness of His presence with you!
Genesis 27:28 “May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness- an abundance of grain and new wine.”
Psalm 36:8 “They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.”
14 May 2020. Know My Voice
This is not a time to sit back, to take your foot off the gas pedal or to allow yourself to become spiritually fat. It’s not a time for just getting by. No! It’s a time to get into My Word and to spend time with Me. Dare to ask me what I have to say to you! Dare to ask Me what I want you to do and how I want you to partner with me. Don’t yearn for the past and the old! Look to Me for what is coming, what new things I have planned for you. Take time to listen to Me, get to know and hear clearly My voice and even the tone of my voice, how I speak to you. Begin to actually ‘know’ that you are hearing My Voice and don’t doubt. Use your time to come close, to that intimate place with me, where we share heart to heart — not just grabbing a few minutes here and there!
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek The LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.”
13 May 2020. Emancipate Your Ways
“Let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in My Sight. Resonate thoughtfully with My Spirit and My Word. Be My Echo! Be My Mirror! Stop all excuses — you are not a victim, unable to break free! Step into the light and sever all that offends Me. I have given you My Heart, My Mind, My Ability. Step up and be holy. I have bought your freedom: you are no longer a slave to sin. Be emancipated into the light in all your ways.”
Romans 6:6 TPT “Could it be any clearer that our former identity is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us, so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.”
Psalm 107:10-14 TPT “Some of us once sat in darkness, living in the dark shadows of death. We were prisoners to our pain, chained to our regrets. For we rebelled against God’s word and rejected the wise counsel of God Most High. So he humbled us through our circumstances, watching us as we stumbled, with no one there to pick us back up. Our own pain became our punishment. Then we cried out, “Lord, help us! Rescue us!” And he did! His light broke through the darkness and he led us out in freedom from death’s dark shadow and snapped every one of our chains.
12 May 2020. Breathe
“There is no suffocation in My Spirit; no lifelessness. Everything that I breathe into comes alive; it has no choice but to obey My Spirit. For I bring movement to everything and My paths lead to change. I build and I break; I choose and I dismantle. It is my nature to transform and make new.
Feel My breath on your face; feel the warmth of My Spirit. I groan over the darkness on the earth and pierce it with light. Allow me into your lungs, your veins, your very being. Today is a day of renewal. Breathe me in, Child. Breathe…”
Genesis 2:7 “Then The LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Job 33:4 “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
11 May 2020. Lift Up a Shout of Praise!
“Praise ME! Give thanks! Rejoice! Sing for joy! Dance before Me! Choose to offer the sacrifice of praise!
A sacrifice is something that costs you, so offer up your praise on the days when you don’t feel like it. Praise Me when you’re tempted to worry; praise Me when you feel down. Choose to praise Me and lift up a shout of victory! There is grace available to help you through these days if you’ll just partner with me and choose to praise. Don’t set your hopes on man or put your trust in human strength or wisdom; know that I AM the ONE worthy of your trust! I AM the one who carries all wisdom and who knows how to keep you in these times. Trust me and praise me for I AM your deliverer and your strong tower! I AM your refuge and safe place. I AM the one who walks victorious and sees the end from the beginning.
Set your hope in me and praise Me as the victorious one!”
Psalm 20:6-8 “Now this I know: The LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of The LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
8 May 2020. Encounter
“I AM calling every individual into a place of encounter. I want to encounter you! I want you to encounter ME! It does not matter what nation you live in or what your daily activity is or is not; make space to encounter ME! I AM doing a deep, deep work right now in those who will take the time to meet with me. I AM setting hearts loose into the freedom they have longed for! I AM healing deep, buried hurt. I AM bringing you to life again, but more than just to life, to the fullness of life! This is the work that I AM desiring to do right now. Make the time to come, My beloved. Come! For truly, nothing else is more important or more pressing at this moment. Make time today.”
Revelation 3:20 “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
Psalm 26:8 NLT “I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.”
7 May 2020. Think on These Things
At this time of ‘lock-down’ — a place that most of us have never been before or could have ever imagined — it is so easy to get caught up in the grumblings, the worries, the uncertainty, etc. But I keep hearing the Spirit of The LORD saying, “Don’t think on the things that are pressing in on you right now, but instead, set your mind on these things:
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”*
Yes, life is still disrupted, uncomfortable, frightening, but we know the One (our Heavenly Father) who has us in the palm of His hand and is working all things together for good to those who love Him!
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
6 May 2020. Get Up and Walk!
John 5:3-9 “Here a great number of disabled people used to lie — the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Getup! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.”
Many have been like this invalid and have laid at the pool of Bethesda waiting for the waters to be stirred so that you might get your healing. To you, the Spirit of The LORD is saying, “Do you want to get well? Do you want to be sound in body, soul, mind, and emotions? If so, get up! By faith, grab hold of my hand and get up!”
‘How?’ you ask.
“Tell the enemy to flee today. And then sit in my truth, dwell in my truth. Let the truth of my Word permeate your being. Believe my Word. Believe that you are healed today. Believe that you have a sound mind today. Speak it out! Dance it out! Walk it out! For just as I asked the man by the pool of Bethesda if he wanted to get well, so am I asking you today — Do you want to get well?”
5 May 2020. Unwavering!
In this time of shaking, I need my Body to stand firm. Stand firm on the promises of Heaven. Stand firm on the foundation of Jesus. Stand firm on the reality that I am a steadfast God who will never forsake his people. Today, pick up the Word and declare My character over the unsteadiness that you see around you. When you know that I AM an unwavering God, you will recognise that you also can be steadfast through My Spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore my brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of The LORD, because you know that your labour in The LORD is not in vain.”
Psalm 99:1 “The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.”
Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
4 May 2020. Lift Up Your Head!
I hear the Spirit of The LORD saying, “Lift up your head! Lift up your head! Do not let the enemy steal your joy at this time. Lift up your head, focus on me and let my voice be the voice you hear and follow. Even in difficult times, I AM still God. I have not wandered off till the storm passes. I AM with you in the storm, no matter how big the waves. Hold My hand, I won’t let you go! Storms may not be your choice, but as you trust me in the storm, not only do you survive the storm, you find you have thrived through it.
I want you to thrive, not just survive! Survival is fine, but thriving is much better. Now you are stronger than you were before. You are stronger than you think. You are more able than you think! Should I not know? I created you and I know what you are capable of, so trust Me!”
You may need to take some time to repent of your small-mindedness and ask Him to help you see you as He sees you!
Psalm 121:1-4 “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. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber, behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
1 May 2020. Supernatural Peace
The Spirit of The LORD says, “I AM done with quick-fix relaxation! I AM done with band-aid/ plaster prayers! In this time, I AM releasing a SUPERNATURAL peace that surpasses all understanding. It is a peace so steady and deep within you that you’ll wonder if you’ll ever be shaken by the enemy again. A peace so strongly rooted within you that you no longer bury your head in the name of peace but step out in boldness and courage. I AM teaching my Church what it means to truly harbour peace in a time of crisis, to declare my name with a new ferocity and to breathe in my Spirit with a new tenacity. Let Me teach you supernatural peace!”
Declare over yourself today: “I receive your supernatural peace God!”
Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Job 22:21 “Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.”
