The Rain Comes After You

Sometimes THE RAIN COMES AFTER YOU….I pondered these words I heard in my spirit one morning.

As we forge ahead taking and breaking new ground we can grow quite weary. Sometimes we will get glimpses of inspiration from what we see ahead, but sometimes it’s just desert and tumbleweeds we see before us, and it’s what we leave in our wake that rallies us onward. Just because we don’t see it happening doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

One day, a couple years ago, I had prayed for a server at a local restaurant because he was having back pain. I left there not knowing if there was any improvement in his back. It wasn’t until a week later I found out his back pain had disappeared five minutes AFTER I had left that day.

 We don’t always see our impact in this world much like George Bailey in “Its a Wonderful life.” I pray God gives you a glimpse of the beauty that is in your wake as you pass through this world everyday. We are sowing and building for more than just the present, we are building a legacy.

I had a dream months ago about walking in a dry desert area with no growth because of no rain. The storms were raging and the ground was cracking beneath my feet and i heard the Lord say. .. scatter your seed. So I did even though out seemed pointless.

I had been walking in my dream for miles when I heard the voice again saying to turn around. When I turned around I saw miles of beautiful flowers behind me. The rain had come after me to water the seeds I had sown and it brought forth a beautiful field of flowers.

Be encouraged! Keep sowing! Keep loving! You’re building a legacy. Sometimes you will see the rain fall on what you do right away, but sometimes… many times, THE RAIN COMES AFTER YOU.

The Great and Mighty Things

sea-2604842_640

When you respond whole heartedly to SURRENDER IT ALL to God, it is much like you are laying yourself upon the altar as a sacrifice. It is a true decision to die to self and to be resurrected in Him. Very similar to the story of Elijah, the power of God comes down and ignites, engulfs, and saturates you in His presence and power, setting you ablaze as a testimony for the world to see.

We are not spectators in the land where He is taking us. It’s all about becoming. We become who we are created to be in the secret place.

He refines and purifies us…
He brings revelation, wisdom, and rest…
He recharges and renews vision…
He makes us vessels of honor
….
… in the secret place.

You are destined to not only see but to become carriers of the word, to become carriers of the wind, to become carriers of the fire, to carry and become part of the answer to your own prayers. Once you experience it, you become part of it. You carry it within you, meant to be released to others.

Immerse yourself in Him and be filled with His spirit, to carry the wind that removes debris, to carry the fire that sets hearts ablaze, to literally become glory carriers!! You will begin to experience the kind of glory that can heal people by you merely walking into the room!

FEAR NOT!!!! Immerse yourself in the water and breathe deeply for when you do you will live and not drown in this river of Life!!!! Walk boldly into the fire for you will not burn! Where He is taking you is deep into His heart where the treasure is kept. When you dare to enter in, you will be surprised to find yourself moving in ways you never could before! You will defy the laws of physics! You will see marvelous spectacles and hear secrets of His heart that have remained hidden for such a time as this.

It is a Jeremiah 33:3 moment. …Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you GREAT and MIGHTY things, which you do not know.

It’s ALL About Him

As I watched my father age, I wanted be around him as much as I could before wasn’t here anymore. I loved him for who he was and not for what he could do for me because at that point thats the only thing he could offer me was himself. I loved every single second with him.

 
I’m concerned by what I see happening in our world and church. Relationships being formed out of selfish ambition and “what’s in it for me?”, instead of true selfless love for each other.

 
It is so easy to be so busy we fall into routine of the day to day and with what needs to be done that we don’t even notice that we are not engaging our hearts anymore. We forget how to feel.

 
Any muscle will atrophy without being used. We forget about what empathy and true sacrificial love looked like. It’s easy to step into doing what you need to do to get your needs met without taking others into consideration.

 
I believe a huge enemy tactic right now is Christian narcissism (love of self). We serve to make us look and feel good, we connect and network with the right people in order to get ahead and we certainly don’t like to be challenged while doing it.

 
We’ve taken a toxin of this world and injected it straight into the vein of the church. It was/is never supposed to be about us! We as Christians are supposed to be dead to self and alive in Christ. Somehow we still have it backwards.

 
It seems we have lost His heart while “doing life.” Pretty soon family becomes estranged, spouses are distant and friends you thought would be there for life have gone AWOL. What is happening here??!!?? It’s like I’m seeing the walking spiritual dead.
They are lacking the love that is willing to be inconvenienced and interrupted. A love that takes them out of their comfort zones and into the heart. The God kinda love.
When we see the people in our lives in a utilitarian way we step out of our heart and into our heads. The relationship becomes about how you benefit each other instead of interacting heart to heart.

 
I cried out to God when I felt His heart anguish about what is happening. I felt Him saying that He has an answer. He is decreeing CLEAR over your life! Enemy’s hands off! Anything that is hindering LOVE must go! He is coming with a defibrillator to shock people’s hearts into beating again.

 
There are many right now who are dealing with horrific situations in their families, territories, churches, and other spheres of influence. Many have felt dead inside.
In the midst of great heartache He is causing a holy shock to course through your hearts to make you remember it is LOVE that’s truly important and with that revelation it starts to beat again!!!

 
We need to love the people in our lives… Deeply love them. Allow the shock in life to awaken you to the true state of things, good or bad. Allow it to clear your spiritual arteries so the Blood can pump in, out, and through the Body like it is intended to do.
As we arise to care again with His love we will feel the love come back into relationships that have been neglected. You will see them start to thrive again!!!

 
Let us not lose touch with His heart again and with the hearts of those we love. Let us desire to be in His presence and to long to be around others in our lives simply because we love who they are and love being in their presence and not for what they can do for us.

 
Remember….It’s not about us and ALL about HIM!!!

 

 

Galatians 2:20- I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 

Ezek 36:26- I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

Dancing Upon the Disarmed Minefield of Your Soul

dance-2432909_640

When my mom started having memory problems I was devastated. It became extremely hard to have a conversation with her due to her not being able to finish sentences. She slowly became someone I didn’t even recognize, BUT that was the good thing. See my mom had been tormented by memories of childhood which caused her great distress ALL her life which spilled over into the way she parented. Most of my memories of her are not good memories at all. This is where God stepped in, granted a little later in her life than I would have preferred, in a mighty way. I believe in His mercy He took the painful memories away from her and she became a totally different person. The woman I see in front of me today is pleasant, content, and always has something nice to say to everyone. This is a woman who understands JOY and FREEDOM!

My mom had deep wounds in her soul that acted like hidden bombs so dealing with her growing up was like daily walking a minefield and you never knew when you might trigger an explosion.

As I was having my quiet time with the Lord, He started to show me that we all have hidden bombs on the land that is our lives. Many of us have dealt with the obvious bombs because they were easy to see on top of the surface, but there are ones that we don’t know are there until we “trigger” them in others or if somebody else triggers them in us. They are hidden, but active, just under the surface waiting for someone to look at us wrong, or not invite us to something and without warning…. BOOM!

I hear the Lord saying I WANT TO DISARM BOMBS IN THIS SEASON. WHERE I AM TAKING YOU MY WARRIORS IN THE FUTURE YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO BE TAKEN OUT BY BOMBS WITHIN YOUR OWN LAND!! ALLOW ME TO SEARCH YOUR MIND, WILL, AND EMOTIONS FOR THOSE HIDDEN THINGS THAT MAY EXPLODE FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD. I WANT TO BRING A DEEP HEALING WITH MY LOVE TO THOSE PARTS THAT HAVE BEEN TRAUMATIZED BY THE PAST. I DO NOT WANT THE ENEMY TO HAVE ANY TINY BIT OF GROUND IN YOU! I WANT YOU TO BE FREE OF ALL THE AFTER EFFECTS OF ABANDONMENT, INSECURITY, REJECTION, FEAR, PRIDE, ETC. I AM BUILDING AN ARMY THAT IS UNOFFENDABLE! IT IS TIME FOR MY CHILDREN TO FULLY BELIEVE THAT (ROMANS 8:31) IF I AM FOR THEM, WHO CAN BE AGAINST THEM?

Pray with me…

Father God I trust You for You are a good good Father. I give You full permission to come into every area of my soul and disarm me with Your love. I ask You to reveal the wounds that I may not even be aware of that act as hidden bombs in my life. Bring a deep healing like only You can so I can charge boldly into battle with no hesitation and no reservation about stepping on other’s bombs or the fear of them stepping on mine. I ask You to remove All the emotional bombs which were set into place by the enemy during traumatic and hurtful events my life. I want to be totally free to be who You’ve created me to be in all it’s fierceness and zeal for You! I thank You for what You are doing in the body of Christ. You are making us fearless for You! I prophesy that I will be able to dance upon the exact places those bombs used to be in the name of Jesus. Amen

I believe this disarming starts with us and our individual bombs, but it will go from there on to disarming regions and countries. He is raising a holy bomb squad! He desires His warriors to be whole without ANY remaining enemy ground (bombs) in us so we can help others find their bombs and become free. It starts in the secret place where He heals, disarms, and equips us for battle.

Ephesians 4:26-27- But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. 27 Don’t give the slanderous accuser, the Devil, an opportunity to manipulate you! (Passion translation)

Color Running Through A Glory Cloud

A few years ago my friends and I did a “color run” and we named our team Glory Cloud. For those who might not know what a color run is, it’s a run that you run through color stations at different points and you get dowsed with a certain color at every station. By the end of the race you are a rainbow of color!

color-1229859_640

I woke this morning with these words in my spirit…. A MOBILE GLORY CLOUD IS COMING! I started praying about what I was sensing and I remembered the color run. I started seeing a heavenly Color Run with people moving all over the globe getting dowsed in glory colors as they went.

There will be locations all over that will be like glory color stations and as people are drawn there by the Holy Spirit they will walk through the Glory Cloud and it will unlock a specific thing; either a new dimension, release new revelation, and/or bring divine encounters filled with signs and wonders!!!

Each glory station will have a different color (gift) that is highlighted in heaven. As people rotate and migrate through these stations they became carriers of His glory and they will become a rainbow of His splendor!!!

They will go forth into the world and embrace others and color will be transferred to them. There will be some who will pick up color merely from walking past or being in the presence of the colorful ones. This reminded me of Peter’s shadow healing people.

The colorful ones will NOT be silent as to where the Color comes from as they want the Artist glorified in ALL they do!!!!

(Take a listen to the amazing song Colors by Bethel Music)

We Are a Symphony of The Father’s Heart

clef-593912_640

I believe with all my heart that each one of us carries a sound and when we are in tune with the Father’s heart the music we make is beautiful, powerful and we bring life and alignment wherever we go.

When we gather with others who understand their sonship and their Fathers heart, we create an orchestra whose sound rattle the gates of hell. When we worship our King the atmosphere SHIFTS it cannot stay the same, prison doors fall off their hinges and proclaim FREEDOM to the captives and LOVE to the rejected!!

Our struggle is to stay “in tune” with His heart so we are in the right KEY… The KEY of heaven! We get that in intimacy with Him. He gives us a TUNE UP. We get synced up to the beat of His heart, and for what moves Him.

I see something quite miraculous happening when people gather in the right KEY (pure motive) being their pure NOTE (who they are in Christ), carrying the right PITCH (our humility and His Presence) moving to the BEAT (His will His way)of heaven! A SYMPHONY OF HIS GLORY!!!

IMAGINE the most beautiful music ever heard…A symphony of heaven on earth! Divine synchronicities will happen, things that have caused great heartache will shift and fall into place. The right people will be drawn into our lives. It’s going to change us, our families, regions and world!!!!!

We are the sound of heaven here on earth! May we ring loud and ring true!!!
