I have been very busy… downsizing, cleaning out closets and getting rid of clutter.
I heard The LORD say, “Get rid of everything in your closet that you no longer need!
Know that I AM preparing you for a positive rest in Me with clear visibility like you have never had before.
As I have begun to position you for your next assignment, I AM beginning with order and obedience so that your opportune door will not be weighed down with any extra baggage from the past.
Your outreach shall unfold in a moment’s time as you reach out in obedience, everything shall be fine. And as you will take one more glance behind, you will see this was just a sign of when I drew the line.
Common ground is coming around as you hear the sound of My Voice shout “Grace shall Abound!” says The LORD.
“Re-calibration and fitness are coming together with your “boot camp”, designed for discipline like none other.
Yes, Diet, Discipline and Discipleship shall come to life as you walk in obedience to My order for opportunity and outreach!
For the moment, all discipline is painful, rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it, (Hebrews 12:11).
Yesterday is no more. It shall be only a memory, never intended for a comfort zone. It has been refreshing to taste the freedom that order brings.
Invigorating, energizing and motivating comes from moving forward one step at a time, making progress toward a vision… set your goal and fix your focus!
Radical Obedience is the single focus that shall light your way and dispel the darkness.
Empty closets make room for new garments. We are being clothed with the robes of righteousness afresh to bring order out of chaos.
Some of those old garments that never did fit before are sure not going to fit now… so stop holding on to them!
Your sense of value and your real value of self will be enhanced as you de-clutter and celebrate your aligning with others who are like minded and celebrate their true identity and purpose.
These are golden opportunities from the one who paid a price we could not pay.
As new things are being established, take slow simple steps. Divine alignment and needed connections will be in place as you go forth.
Getting help from others is needed and shall be supplied. It is also time to reach out and give generously for during this season, helping one another is priority. As you give and take, you shall see how your alignment is being ordered one piece at a time.
As The LORD orders our steps in our daily lives, a plan begins to take form and have substance. Many who are lacking need my excess as I realize that my extra baggage and garments are ready to meet a need.
Order and obedience go hand in hand.
As The LORD has been speaking, He has reminded me that to whom much is given, much is required.
As a missionary, I was totally blessed with every need met. Many gave sacrificially that I may go to the nations. It is always a blessing to be able to sow out of our excess into the lives of others and meet an area of need or lack.
I keep sensing The LORD is saying once again, “Who will go? There are some who are drowning in brokenness. Some are saying, “What can I do?””
Today, I believe The LORD is challenging us to be the answer to someone’s cry. What about you?
I had a dream the other night and I heard the words to an old, old song that goes like this, “Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep, just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street”.
I knew The LORD was saying, this new season will leave behind the turmoil and dark gloom and much fear and uncertainty of the last season and the future holds many sunny days of freedom and peace.
This is surely an hour when my prayer time has focused on justice, healing, division and many things connected to deep needs.
As we clean our closets, that is a prophetic picture of how God is also emptying us of much clutter in our soul that our spirits may be fully engaged and totally free.
We will never reach our destiny if we never leave our comfort zones — so time to get our Boarding Pass and move forward, as In the distance, I sense we are about to hear, “All aboard!”
It is the dawning of the New Era that we have only spoken of, but not experienced.
What does that really speak to you?
How do you envision your role in the set time?
Can you see it all coming together??
See it, speak it and settle it!
I believe The LORD has shown me that we are going places we have never been and finding fulfillment that floods our soul to overflowing with the goodness of a good, good Father.
“We don’t enjoy discipline when we get it. It is painful. But later, after we have learned our lesson from it, we will enjoy the peace that comes from doing what is right,” Hebrews 12:11.
