This month of November is a time when we will see many spiritual changes. November is the 11th month and the number 11 is symbolic of transition.
September 23, 2015 was Yom Kippur, the most holy day on the Jewish calendar. Jewish people believe that this is the day the Books of Heaven are opened over our lives and over leaders and nations. God releases our destiny for the next year at that time.
Many people were promoted to a new level in the spirit or in maturity this year. Along with this comes a major transitional shift that takes time to work out the new plans in our lives.
Because of all the transition happening over your spiritual life, new spiritual gifts are being given to you and new angels are being assigned. As this happens you might not be as familiar with them or know just how things work just yet. As our callings and assignments change we cannot assume that we can do things the way we used to.
Watch for the new
As we enter into a new season we need to embrace this:
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past,” Isaiah 43:18.
It is important not to assume that we can do things the way we did before. Consider what happened to Moses when God spoke to him to strike a rock and water would miraculously flow from it (Exodus 17:6). Then later in a new season God told him to speak to the rock and not to strike it (Numbers 20:7–12).
Unfortunately, Moses used an old way of doing things and hit the rock instead of speaking to it. Even though the miracle happened and water flowed from it, because he did not follow God’s instructions it limited him in fulfilling his life calling.
God is giving clear signs to help guide you through the transitions so watch for them. Expect to see provision and greater resources become available to you. Be willing to let go of the old to open up the new. In most cases, you will need to take a step of faith for these new doors of opportunity to open for you.
Angels of peace and provision
On October 6, at 6:33 a.m. I had a spiritual encounter and I was taken into a trance-like state (Acts 10:10) that lasted 33 minutes. An angel came into the room and laid hands on me and imparted peace and spoke words from Matthew 6:33–34. The angel spoke the words, “Don’t worry” as God’s presence and peace enveloped me and formed a shield or force field, like a coat of armor.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:33–34.
As I came out of this spiritual experience, I heard the Holy Spirit say that people everywhere are getting this impartation of peace and provision to rise above the storms happening right now. Whether you are aware of an angel or not, receive this by faith that God is giving you new levels of peace and the resources you will need to get through this time of transition.
Fear versus wisdom
We are entering into 7 years of new divine opportunities to advance God’s Kingdom and receive repayment for losses over the past 14 years (since 2001). I released this last April in a prophetic word titled “Don’t Hold Back.”
Many people have told me that they were holding back on decisions, buying houses, moving, taking jobs etc., because they believed the economy was going to crash last September. This kind of thinking is usually motivated by fear and will actually cause things to crash in your life. It is important to get on God’s timetable and to forget some things that are no longer relevant for this season.
We need to understand the difference between fear and wisdom. When your decisions are motivated by fear you will not have a plan. When you are using wisdom, you will have heard from God and you will make decisions with divine intentions.
Operating out of fear can cause you to hesitate or hold back and possibly miss God’s timing. There are times that you may need to use wisdom and put things on hold. But this usually comes with peace (not fear) and God confirms it with a plan or solution.
God is releasing divine solutions and it is not the time to hold back, but to move forward with confidence. Listen to God as plans and strategies are coming for the next 7 years of blessing.
Enter into God’s rest
Last month I released a prophetic word that over the next 24 weeks through March 9, 2016, it will be important to pull back and get a new strategy. I want to encourage you to respond to this by taking time to rest and get refreshed. As you do this, you will see new plans come to you that you will need to succeed in 2016.
