As I was in the Word this morning, I kept meditating on the phrase, “Come let’s reason together,” and realized it carries many meanings and perspectives.
As I became aware of the clock above me, I could hear the clock ticking and I envisioned the word NOW across the face of the clock, as if the clock was stopping to define the moment of time for me.
I can truly say that in that moment TIME stopped for me, as I clearly heard the voice of The LORD say, “Daughter, the hour is late, the clock is ticking and there is no more time to lose. The Now time is here for COMPLETION of all UNFINISHED business.
Know I AM highlighting the words “TODAY and NOW” to carry a new urgency in the hearts of all who are in the true family of God and focused on building My Kingdom.
Put this as a seal upon your hearts. “TODAY is your MOMENT in and NOW is your story!” says the Father.
As soon as I heard those words I immediately recalled the song by John Denver “Today”.
“I can’t be contented with yesterday’s glory
I can’t live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
I’ll laugh and I’ll cry and I’ll sing”
Yes, Beloved, He is crying out to AWAKEN and make each day count as we live IN HIM. The ending of the song reminds us, “A million tomorrows shall all pass away ‘Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today”
HE awakened my ear to new awareness of how swiftly things are changing and I cried out for the sharpening of the gift of discernment to walk in wisdom.
Carefully discerning the times and seasons with a deep conviction and peace that “my times are in HIS hands” and He alone is teaching me to apply my heart to wisdom.
Help me LORD not to just keep repeating the same things to myself and not stopping to apply them to my heart but give me a gentle push to quickly move forward to obey your word to me.
Beloved, this is not a time to faint in our minds, but a time to take hold of the mind of The LORD… we do have the mind of The LORD… He is the only wise God.
He is asking us in this hour for our undivided attention that HE may impart to us true understanding from HIS perspective that we may have a heart of wisdom.
The shift that has occurred is demanding a new mindset to be positioned and aligned properly.
Many will pass and give a nod to this moment of meditation and some will take it to heart but a remnant will awaken to the lateness of the hour and come into the secret place for a fresh understanding of the effect of these times and season we are now in.
It is a sobering time and a time to receive the FEAR OF The LORD.
The LORD would say to you today. “Pick up the pace, dust off your dreams and erase the word of disappointment from your vocabulary for your DIS-APPOINTMENT is coming full circle and meeting up with your DIVINE APPOINTMENT.
Your last shall be better than the first. Have I not said.. “the last shall be first”?
That which seemed like the end was only the beginning — so hold on and always remember, I AM the author and finisher of your faith. I have already prepared My LAST WORD.”
Has anyone noticed how this new year (Jewish) seems to be very defining and full of disconnections and also is bringing the beginning of new connections?
it has been almost breathtaking as we experience the acceleration of events and all the clashing of darkness and light as the earth is groaning and bringing to birth the word of The LORD for this hour.
New Day… New Way…
Cross over… simply take up your cross and follow the changes in you, in the world and in the Kingdom.
All we can say for sure is there is a battle for CONTROL and THINGS as we have known them are OUT OF CONTROL… but GOD!
So I am admonished to say STOP, LOOK, and LISTEN.
The LORD is saying, “Some things are winding down and some things are winding up.”
Hmmm… Time to slow down, be intentional, stay focused, press in, go forward and finish well.
Sounds good. I suddenly realized these things must take place one at a time in unison and become my end time battle plan to fight the good fight of faith.
We surely must stop and redefine the importance of times, relationships and priorities in this hour. We will never pass this way again.
As I ask myself, what part do I play, where must I be, and what do I see? I suddenly realized this is the cry of the elect at this moment and HE is speaking to the uncertainty of many today to give blessed assurance of their divine purpose and how it is lining up with His design.
Somehow time is slipping by so quickly and new things are coming in breathtaking speed… It is surely a time like none other…. drawing close and staying close to The LORD is absolutely the ONLY first priority as we trust HIM one day at a time and find the SIGNIFICANCE in each day, living it to the fullest as HE leads the way.
Watch the strategy of light coming into darkness while all the time He is bringing order into chaos and reordering disorder. Time to dance to a new tune TODAY and receive perfect alignment.
For many this is the hour for which you have been prepared for your whole life. You have been set apart but not set aside.
As you step into your calling, you shall find yourself being fitly joined together, “You must allow Me to stir up the gift within you for I desire to resurrect your dead dreams and hopes that have been deferred and I will not allow them to fade away this time.
That which I have ordained will rise to the top and produce fruit that remains.”
Pray with me today.
LORD, teach me to number my days and apply my heart to wisdom, as You order my steps this day.
Give me Grace to lay down the things that entangle me, pick up the things You are assigning me to and give me discernment and fill me with Wisdom to do it quickly and shine your light on my new connections and divine appointments.
in Jesus’ Name.
