Have you ever stood at a bus stop, airport or even a train station waiting for a vehicle of transportation to move you from one location to another? You would hold in your hand the schedule that would tell you where you should stand, what time to be there; and if the transport was going to be late there would be some kind of notification as to the anticipated time of arrival. Barring a major interruption you had a fairly accurate idea of when you would get to your destination.

Unfortunately we in the Christian world expect God to operate on that same type of format. Many Christians have walked away from their station of hope and expectancy because the Father did not stay on their time table. As difficult as it is to wait for any extended amount of time, Waiting is a BIG part of our relationship with our Heavenly Father...
Over the past few days I have felt the Lord's heart strongly for those who are now stepping into the 'new things' the Lord has opened before them.
. . .
For those of you who are feeling the pressure and feeling your capacity is being stretched intensely and the "new things" before you, as exciting as they are, and the "new pathways" the Lord is leading you into, there is also a sense of feeling overwhelmed or even fear that surrounds it. I heard the Lord say:  "There is a new level of empowerment upon you!!!!!"
"Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there" (Psalms 139:7-8, NKJV)...We know that God is an abiding presence everywhere at the same time. No matter where we are on Earth, He is there! We cannot hide from His presence. Whether we recognize Him or not, He is always there. It is comforting to know that He stands right beside us...
The Lord is doing a mighty work right now to increase the faith of His people. The Lord showed me that many are in deep struggles right now still awaiting circumstances to shift and breakthrough to come. There is still a transition that is taking place in the body of Christ right now and many are still feeling the 'struggle of transition' plus the intensity of circumstances that continue to keep them in a place of battle and contending for the promises of God.
Have you requested a Personal Prophetic Word?. . .My personal believe is that "prophecy is the declared intentions of God." So when we receive a personal word or when a corporate word is given, that word is declaring what God intends to do. Unfortunately, a large portion of the church world has done away with the prophets; therefore prophesy, both personal and corporate are not recognized or accepted, but God has not done away with it. . .
Over the past week I have had a strong sense in me of encouragement from the heart of God for those who have been holding onto prophetic words from the Lord, standing in faith & so far their experience has not lined up with what the Lord spoke over the season or situation.


As I pressed into the Lord I heard the whisper of His heart..."It's not over yet!!!"
There is a phenomenal story in the book of 2 Kings Chapter 4: 8- 36 of the prophet Elisha, who went into a town called Shunem (Shunem means double resting place). There was a prominent woman there who prepared a meal for him and built a small upper room for him to stay each time he came to town. The room had a bed, a table, a chair and a lamp stand. She prepared this place for him because she perceived the anointing on his life.
This is your season to discover in greater ways who you are and what the Lord has placed within your heart. This is your season to discover the passions, the purposes, the desires the Lord has placed in your heart. The Lord is stripping off expectations. He is stripping off "false pressures" of things that many have been feeling they "have to do" or "how things should be".

The wind of the Spirit is blowing strongly over you right now to awaken within you the desires that HE has placed within you. He is freeing you from expectations that HE did NOT place upon you. He is freeing you from pressures that He did NOT put upon you...
On one particularly hard day as I meditated on the goodness of God, It was revealed to me how much my feelings were based on what I SEE instead of what I do not or cannot see. At first I was not sure what was be being revealed to me, and then I remembered the scripture in Hebrews that says, "Now faith IS the substances of things hoped for and the evidence of things NOT SEEN." (Hebrews 11:1-3 NKJV)
The Lord has been speaking to me recently for those who have been through intense fires of adversity over the last season.
The Lord showed me that many faced fires that almost "took them out". Many faced intense fires of adversity where the enemy came ferociously to steal, kill and destroy and many were left in that place of wondering whether they were ever going to make it out alive. The fire was so intense, and the Lord showed me that these fires of adversity were some of the most intense battles of their life. For many they were fires that catapulted them into dark nights of the soul, others into a level of warfare they had never experienced, others feeling like it was this demonic assignment of assault in every direction and breakthrough seemed further than ever. Many faced the battle of their lives to keep their hope in the Lord to bring deliverance.
