The Enemy Is Hiding In Plain Sight


My son sent this photo to me today. Initially, I didn’t notice anything at first and thought he sent me the wrong photo. But as I zoomed the photo in, I saw a large snake coiled up behind a tire. Immediately, I heard the Holy Spirit whisper, “The enemy is hiding in plain sight.” It took me by surprise.

Friends, today is the day of Pentecost, one of our Holiest Days. The Day that the Holy Spirit descended on the Disciples. The Holy Spirit has many functions, but one of them is as a “Discerner”. 1 Cor 12: 1-14
He helps us to discern our enemies. God is warning us and giving us wisdom in this season of our lives. The enemy is being exposed!! But sometimes we must look closer, and then look again. Sometimes we have to “zoom” or “focus” on what’s right in front of us.

You see often times, the enemy will hide in “Plain Sight,” and we don’t even realize it, because it does not look like what we are expecting. The enemy will always use people when he can, to try and abort our destinies. He will use people to lure us in by our flesh and once we are hooked, its hard to break free.

The enemy IS being exposed, but we MUST walk in wisdom and discernment. We must STOP being so naïve and recognize people for who they really are. Our hearts will say, “I love them, they are good to me, they can change.” or “They are not always bad, they have had a rough life, they are stressed etc…” The Word says, in Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things & desperately sick, who can understand it.”

Have we made our hearts a god, by choosing to follow it? The world tell us to “follow our hearts”, but all throughout scripture, Jesus tells us to, “follow Him.” Our hearts were never meant to be followed, but to be led by God!

God has given you discernment through the holy spirit. But you must learn to say. “No,” to your emotions and listen to your gut! Have you ever had a “Gut check?” where something feels off?

Your gut, your belly is where the Holy Spirit resides, John 7: 37-39 (The Holy Spirit IS the Living water.)
Thats what you trust! Not your heart, not your head, and certainly NOT your emotions. Learn to be led by the Spirit and NOT the flesh. The enemy has been hiding right in front of you and while your gut (aka holy spirit) tells you one thing, you have been listening to your emotions.

Be wise! Recognize the deception of your enemy and know that while he may be hiding, once you discern him, he will be exposed. Once he is exposed he can be defeated. Walk in discernment! Be set free!!

Its Time For The New; That’s Customized To You!

These Running shoes were my absolute favorite. I ran/jogged/walked in them for nearly 4 years and logged thousands of miles. I loved them so much, the colors, the fit, the style. They suited me. They were a perfect fit. But they were not the only ones, many people have these same shoes.

As I went to put them on recently, I noticed that they seemed more worn than usual and didn’t quite have the same fit as they once had. I was sad, but I put them on anyway and went for my run.

I had a great run, but while out, God began to speak to me about wearing shoes that no longer fit properly. He spoke to my heart and reminded me I was in a new season, and a new season required letting go of the old and embracing the new. I was okay with that…I thought it was a perfectly good reason to upgrade and get new shoes. So I went online and looked for the same style and color. I wanted those same shoes, but new. To my surprise, those shoes were discontinued! Now, I could get similar shoes, but not THOSE shoes.

I then felt as if it wasn’t meant for me to have those same shoes. If God truly is doing something new in this season, than I should stop trying to hang on to things that are familiar and look for the NEW. So I went back online and to my surprise I was able to find a pair that were CUSTOM made just for me! I was able to pick the style and every color, from the sole to the laces as well as creating my own ID on them.(Born2Inspire)

I had so much fun designing my brand new shoes! I created them and they were customized to me. No one else will have these same exact shoes!
God reminded me that in this season, He wants us to be willing to let go of the familiar. He wants us to let go of the old things and get ready for the new. But not just something that’s familiar, but He wants to prepare you for a custom fit! A custom design, something that is so uniquely you, no one else will have it!

Friends, this truly is a new season to release the old and to trust God for whats next. It may not look like what you want it to, but God always knows best. Let Him surprise you with something so creative, that when you receive it, there is never any doubt who it belongs to!

Its time for an upgrade! Are you ready to release the familiar, for something Customized just for you? Don’t be afraid of change, God is always with you!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

Don’t Delay Your Flight!

“There are some things you are going to have to leave behind, because they are going to hinder your prophetic release.”
—Jennifer Leclaire quote

Friends, God is shaking things. Not some things but EVERYTHING that can be shaken will be. The purpose in this is to release us from things, people and behaviors that will keep us in a season of complacency.

Don’t be surprised if you are feeling it. Your job, your family, your marriage, your kids, your ministry. God is shaking so He can build a stronger foundation in us and under us.

This is a season to have great discernment to know what to release and what to hold tightly to, as the shaking is happening. There are some people and things that cannot go where God is sending you. They are not ready. Be willing to let go if He says to.

I know it maybe painful, but understand if you are not willing to let go of those things He is requiring, it will cost you dearly. Just like when flying, you have to pay a hefty price just to carry extra baggage on a plane. Be willing to leave the luggage behind in order to fly. It may hold your most valued possessions, but to carry them with you will cost you dearly and delay your flight.

Sweet friends. I want to leave you with this, as God placed it on my heart.

God is about to take your faith to a whole new level. He is going to overwhelm you and cause you to expand your thinking and challenge what you’ve believed Him for up until this point!

I declare and decree…what you are about to experience, you cannot work for it.
You didn’t earn it. You can’t even prepare for this. It simply is God’s goodness and love towards you in this hour.

You will be challenged to believe the unthinkable. Imagine the impossible. And forever be changed by God’s delight in simply blessing you. Just because He can.

There will be no more delay!
Hope is on the way ❤

I had a powerful dream recently that I wanted to share. Initially I knew it was a personal dream, but as I continued to pray into it, I felt the release for the body.

I saw two giant moving picture frames. In the first picture frame I saw many roads overlapping each other, like an expressway. The roads all began to crumble and fall into a large pile of rubble. But what was unique about it, was that it was in the color sepia. I have never dreamed in sepia before. After doing some research, I learned that the color sepia, represents, (aged or old memories, or a time from long-ago.)

I then saw a second picture frame, in that picture frame it was in the most vivid HD color I have ever seen. There was a beautiful meadow, with big beautiful flowers, the brightest blue sky and a large Oak Tree, that just seem to shoot up out of the ground fully grown. It had big branches and lots of leaves. It was so peaceful and truly breathtaking how beautiful and vivid everything was.

After Praying about it, God gave me clarity and showed me that the roads represented our journey, or the roads we have traveled. It also represented our past, that’s why it was in sepia.

The meadow and the tree represented new life, new beginnings, things in bloom, in full HD color. You see our past, mistakes, and the roads we have taken that have led to disaster, God is bringing restoration. God is bringing new life into those broken places. He is bringing peace and it is going to be a sight to behold! It will take our breath away.

(This was a literal picture of Isaiah 43:19) ”

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
The oak tree, sprung up!

I know you are discouraged, weary and desperate, but I want you to know that despite what it looks like in the natural, God promises us in Romans 8:28 “ALL things work for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” You are not forgotten, abandoned, rejected or displeased with. In fact you are adored, treasured, loved, valued and highly thought of. You are so very precious and God is bringing things into full bloom. I was reminded of how bad April was. It has been referred to as “Achy April,” because it was a tough one.

But just like in the natural, so it is in the spirit. April Showers bring May flowers! For those of you who have been pressing in and trusting…Expect NEW, this month. Expect things to start blooming and things to appear out of no where over the next few months. What God is doing is going to leave you in wide eyed wonder. He truly is restoring our past and creating us a most beautiful future!

Presence over Purpose.

When you truly know who you are and what God thinks about you. What the world thinks doesn’t matter. Whether good or bad. The likes, the comments, the followers. It doesn’t matter.

Whether you have 10k followers or 10. Your value does not change with God.

I see so many people striving for respect, acceptance, approval, social media popularity. Some have acquired it, some are still striving.

In the end it doesn’t matter.
God loves us all.

Many of us have gotten so busy with the work of God, that we are too busy to be WITH God.

It’s easy to make ministry an idol. So, we should all becareful.

God never intended for us to be too busy with good things that we miss out on the best things. His Presence.

Let us not sacrifice His Presence for the pursuit of purpose. Because it will be in vain.

You see, your true purpose is simply to love and be loved by Him, and that is found in His presence. God created you for relationship. And out of that relationship, we minister from the overflow.

But when you stop spending time with Him, there is no overflow, in fact you will find yourself weary, exhausted and overwhelmed by lifes expectations of you.

Can I encourage you today, that if you are feeling this way, stop being Martha and learn to sit like Mary. You’ll make a greater impact running on overflow, rather than striving in your own strength.

Friends, let us never forget to always pursue Presence over Purpose.
