A SEASON OF REFRESHING!

il_570xN.931645452_60kh

For the last few weeks I have felt very fatigued, headaches and just a sense of heaviness that I was having a hard time shaking off. I always know when something big is about to happen, either in the spirit, the natural or both, because I begin to feel this way. However, on 11-11-17 I felt a shift, it felt like a long rain after a dry parched summer. It was refreshing. Even over the last few days it has continued. God has not revealed the natural aspect of it, however in the spirit I sense a great refreshing coming to the body.
Yes, this is a Corporate Word. Everyone can glean from these words.
All of us have experienced such an intense warfare season, some of us have had some breakthrough, but many are still waiting. I feel that God is bringing a Refreshment to the body. The word Refresh is described as; give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate, revitalize, re enliven, perk up, stimulate, freshen, energize, exhilarate, reanimate, re-energize, wake up, restore, fortify.
I don’t know about you, but I sure need some of that! God says He is bringing a refreshing to the body, it will help to energize, and restore us. Three words I heard, Refresh, Regroup, Revitalize. He knows that we need to be refreshed, we need to be strengthened and restored. He knows that the enemy has been hitting us hard and He is sending reinforcements. Friends, I know you are tired. I know you have experienced many hardships and losses this past season. But I want you to understand, that God cares and while He is not the one that caused those troubles, He promises to turn those hardships around for your good. Romans 8:28
God has been giving me many dreams with clocks, watches and time. I recently had a dream where I saw a unique wristwatch and it had the time on the front as normal, but when you turned it over, it revealed another clock. God revealed to me that He was restoring our time and giving us double. He is Restoring lost time. So even though you may have felt like you, “missed it” like you have run out of time, or too much time has passed, God is saying, “I am here to RESTORE time back to you. I am the creator of time and I live in the past, present and future all in the same moment, there is nothing that I cannot reach back and get, or move forward and get for you. It all belongs to me and it is all in my hands.”
Friends, be encouraged during this time that right now God is Restoring you. He is Refreshing you. He is Regrouping you. Let your roots grow deep this winter and be ready for spring to birth NEW LIFE!! Take a deep breath because refreshment is coming. It will never look the same. Where you are right now…..will look nothing like where you will be, after your season of refreshment!
“God refreshes the weary.”-Gen 3:25

RIGHT ON TIME & IN HIS TIMING!

clock

I have a clock that has been behind one hour for the last 3 months hanging in my bathroom. Even after replacing the battery and fixing the time, it continued to be slow. I never got around to replacing it and left it there.

Every day, I looked at that clock and was reminded that it was slow. And honestly, there were times when I felt like time itself was behind. Like there was a delay in my life, as I had such expectation of things to come. But just when I thought breakthrough was near, I was delayed again and again.

On 10-10-17 I was getting ready in the bathroom and I looked at the clock like I do everyday and it was actually on time! I was shocked! To the minute, it was accurate. As I looked at another clock confirming the time, I heard, “No more delays.”

“Thank you Jesus!” I shouted, as I sure felt like everything was in slow motion. I then heard, “I am the restorer of time, I am right on time, and you are in my timing.”

I couldn’t help but cry as I stood amazed at what had just happened. I know so many of you are feeling the same thing. Delay after delay, distraction, frustration and feeling like you missed Gods timing somehow. I want to encourage you as I prayed and felt that this word was not just for me. Many of you have been tried by fire and are waiting for the seas to part.

Can I just encourage you and tell you, “You have not missed it!!”

I believe God is finishing up the last few touches of what He has prepared for you, for this season. You can expect to be drawn in by His spirit to come up higher this season. You will begin to desire, more of Him. As you do, God will whisper strategies and reveal His heart to you and what He has planned coming into the New Year.

Take the time to finish strong this season. Get yourself in order. Prepare your mind, body and spirit as 2018 begins. Its going to be a busy season full of unexpected surprises! And God is restoring the time lost!

The Year Of The Lords Favor Is Upon Women.

favor

Attention women, in controlling/abusive relationships. I have a Word for you. (do you feel change coming? you should!! )
I have been in a season of fasting and prayer and during my prayer time Oct 5th, I heard the Lord say,

” There’s a shaking in your home. My daughters, have been under a controlling, terrorist spirit for years. I AM shaking homes all across the land. My heart grieves as my daughters are being abused and controlled. Women represent, ‘the Promise.’ ‘Life Givers’. “Enough is enough!!” says the Lord. “I AM raising up my daughters to take their rightful place. They will no longer live in fear & bondage. I am raising up a generation of Esther’s. Women who will speak up and who will STAND against all odds. Women who will go boldly and speak truth. You will see marriages and homes being shaken. It will appear to happen swiftly, it will even surprise you. It is not the enemy, it is your Father who sees a great injustice to my daughters and it grieves my heart. I am shaking the Foundation. I am shaking the Core. I am shaking homes. I will come like a rushing wind. It is not my will that anyone should suffer or be tormented. I am releasing a spirit of BOLDNESS a spirit of COURAGE & a spirit of GRACE and PROVISION. Anything left standing will remain. But those left with broken pieces, do not pick them up. Behold I am doing a NEW THING.”—

Sisters, your time has come, it is  “for such a time as this.” Many of you have been suffering at the hands of the enemy for far too long. You have been bound by oppression, by depression and anxiety. The Lord is releasing you into new things He is here to deliver you. So do not be dismayed when your house shakes, rejoice in knowing that God is delivering you. Stay on guard and do not fear change. Your prayers are being answered, just not always in the way you had expected.!! Hope is on the way. Get excited. We truly are in a NEW SEASON. ITS YOUR TIME!!!

I want you to understand this is NOT Gods best for you. God did not design marriage for you to be abused in any way! There is a Religious spirit that has held many of you in toxic unhealthy marriages. God is removing that and extending Grace and Favor during this season!!

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19

FINDING GRACE THROUGH DIVORCE

You know, I was sitting here praising God for a dear friend of mine that had victory in her life over a situation. She had gone through a nasty 2 year long divorce and was finally awarded her home, for her children. But as I sat here encouraging her, I couldn’t help but think about my own life and how I too had gone through a nasty divorce not so long ago. 

    Now keep in mind,  if you have never  experienced a divorce you don’t have a clue, I say this, not to be mean, but because there are so many people that I personally encountered that “Judged me” based on my decisions. They either had never been married or had never experienced a divorce. 
     Let me begin with, Divorce is NOT a sin, and your not going to hell and your purpose is not voided!

    I am not going to go into scripture, to create a religious debate. Although, I will tell you I’ve done many hours of research. But more importantly I’ve spent countless hours on God’s chest, listening to His heart over this matter.

    I do believe that it DOES grieve Gods heart when we go through divorce. God does not want this for us because it hurts his children and it destroys families. 

    I am not justifying divorce. I think you should do everything within your power to make it work. That’s why I was married for 17 years. But I also don’t believe that my Father in heaven thinks its ok to be in an unhealthy relationship with someone who does not want to change, or an abusive relationship. Mental, physical, spiritual or emotional. You should never stay in a relationship that is abusive, I don’t care what the religious community says. Make sure you and your kids are in a safe environment.

    If you have ever experienced a divorce, there is a certain level of shame that comes with it. Lets face it, it means you failed at something. It doesn’t always make it your fault, it just means something you tried and it didn’t work. Sometimes we experience divorce not by choice, but because the other person chose. But either way, it is still very painful, whether you wanted it or not. Regardless of who chose to walk away, you need to let go of the shame. Its not yours to carry.

    Divorce is NOT for the weak. Divorce is painful, expensive, and mentally, emotionally exhausting. It takes everything you have just to go on during that time. And when I say its long, if your lucky it will take 6 months. But if you have acquired anything in the marriage or have been married a decent amount of time, 6 months is a figment of  your imagination. I’ve known people that it took 3 years, 2 years and almost 2 years for me. So, if you think its quick and easy its not! 

    Expect a fight, You better know that the other person most likely will do everything in their power to make you look like the worst human being on the planet. Expect to be lied about, talked about and shunned. Divorce is not for the weak.

    Expect to be rejected. This was a big wake up call for me. You need to know that divorce is a weed eater! You are going to find out real quick the people in your life that are genuine and adding to your garden of life and the people that are choking you out by being a weed! I lost so many people including family members when I went though my divorce. At first I was devastated, I didn’t understand how these people that I had poured my life into could turn on me so quickly. Most had never even asked me what happened, they just believed the lies that were being told. But guess what? I thank God every day for that pruning of people out of my life. I obviously didn’t need them in my life anymore, they were just a weed. 

    My season with them is over. So if you have experienced the same thing, even though its painful. Let them go. Don’t go chasing them down, trying to apologize. God removed them for a reason. Let them be. Who cares what they think, their opinion of you is not your business! They are a weed.

    Forgiveness. Ouch this one hurts. Yes, the most important thing I learned is to forgive. I am learning to forgive the people that rejected me. God revealed to me recently that I still had unforgivness. So He is bringing those people to mind and allowing me to forgive them. Just the other morning on my walk I saw someone that had hurt me deeply, I wanted to walk around them but God said no. So I walked passed them and purposely said hello and asked them how they were. I didn’t stop for small talk, I just kept going, they acknowledged me, but as I walked away I said in my heart, “I forgive you.” I felt an immediate release from that person.

    You also need to forgive your spouse. No matter what they did, Now I had said I forgive you, but God showed me there is still unforgiveness. That pain in my heart isn’t hurting them, its keeping me in bondage. So its important no matter what you experienced that you forgive them and then release them. It isn’t easy but God will help.

    Now the biggest area of forgiveness, is not always with other people, but learning to forgive yourself. Again, shame comes in and tells you, your a failure. There were a lot of things I could have done different through the years, so for those things I have to forgive myself and move on. I cant keep letting the enemy remind me of my past. I repented and I have to let it go. The enemy keeps reminding me of what others have done to me, I have to forgive them and let it go. Its a process of healing.

    Friends, let me tell you this from the deepest part of my heart. God loves you so very much. Divorce is not the end of your world, although it feels like it at times. It is simply now a part of your testimony. Divorce does not define you, what you have done in your past isn’t what defines you, but rather what obstacles you have overcome defines who you are! 

    Is God mad at you or disappointed in you because you went through a divorce or 2 or 3 even? No. Yes his heart is sad because you are in pain. But hes not mad at you. He made you. God says “before I formed you in your mothers womb, I knew you.” Jeremiah 1:5 (paraphrased) 

    So He knew everything you were ever going to experience. He knew what you would say or do or not do. He isn’t surprised by anything that has happened in your life. Can you imagine God sitting up in heaven saying, “Wow Peter, I had no idea (insert your name here) was going to make that choice, I cant believe she/he is doing that, what are we going to do now?”

    I laugh when I think about it like that. But I also praise God that He knew me. He knew the choices I would make, and He already had a plan ready for me. You see just because I made that choice doesn’t mean God loves me less or that my purpose is now voided. NO…God says that” ALL things work for the good of those who love the lord and are called according to his purpose”. Romans 8:28 (my favorite) That means that because I am his child, I repent of my sins, my purpose is still mine.

    He uses everything we go through in life to help others, which is exactly why I am able to write this. Because my mess, is now my message. So friends, don’t struggle with shame or guilt. Let it go. Know that God still has an amazing plan for your life, if you will continue to trust him even when things don’t go right, His purpose will be revealed. There is life after divorce, there is hope and there is peace.

    Gods love is everlasting, His grace is sufficient and his mercy is new everyday. And your going to get through this because you are so much stronger than you think you are!

    Friends, divorce is not the end of your life, just a season. It is however the beginning to a whole new life, of something new and amazing. Learn from your mistakes and move forward knowing, your best days are still ahead! Despite what you may see around you.

     Jeremiah 29:11

    For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Pushing Though The Pain

    ready set push

    God laid something on my heart this morning. He reminded me, that In order to pursue His promises we need to stay strong. And in order to deliver our promises, we must stay stronger!

    YOU see the enemy, is not going to relent in pursuing us, trying to destroy what God wants to do in our lives. He knows the power we carry.

    But WE know that God is our protector! He is the gentle Dr. waiting to deliver us.

    Friends, many of you are just one push away from birthing what God has been incubating for years. But, just like in the natural when a woman is giving birth, she’s growing tired, but she must keep pushing.

    She’s at the last stage and she knows that there’s no more resting, she knows this is going to be very painful, but it MUST be done.

    Or she risks the baby’s life and possibly her own.

    I sense, there are some of you that are going to have to go through something painful to deliver your baby!

    You’re going to have to let go of things holding you back. You’re going to have to let go of possibly, people and places. Where God is taking you, they cannot go.

    I know you’re thinking, “my God, I’ve been through so much already!” And it’s true, but if you’re honest a lot of what you have experienced is due to the poor choices you made. God will always use it for our good, but we still have to endure the consequences.

    But it’s going to be quick! You’ve already endured the hardest part.

    My friend, this is THE push. This is it, and once you get through this, there will be a season of rest, and joy, so much joy! You will look back in awe of what God has done in such a short amount if time.

    YOU see, when we release our will to His, He makes a way. He allows things to happen, to push us forward into our destiny. Everything you have been through, is for this moment in life! Right now, it’s here.

    But…..will you trust Him to deliver you? Or will you allow your baby to die on the birthing table, because you were too afraid to push?

    The time is now! It’s go time.
    GET READY TO PUSH..
    YOU are being delivered.

    ​Christians, Porn and Hypocricy

    This is going to be a hard topic, but I am sure based on the title you figured that out. But I felt the need to express my concerns as I have been witness to what I am about to speak about. It is a hard topic, expressed in love.

    I recently received a desperate plea for prayer, from someone who was emotionally devastated that their husband who is a pastor, admitted to being gay. After a long 2-day discussion, God began to reveal even more to me and burdened my heart for this topic.

    I realize that everyone has something that they struggle with, however it greatly concerns me when I see Christians preaching against homosexuality, yet they are addicted to porn. I see the same thing with leaders, pastors etc. They are quick to condemn and ridicule those caught up in sin i.e., two women or men who are openly gay, yet they sit at home watching the same thing on their computers, when they think no one is watching them. Wrong is wrong, period. We must uphold the same standards to which we hold others to.

    Now if you struggle with porn, I understand, the spirit of lust and perversion is a strong one to break. 

    But understand, that the SAME spirit that keeps you bound in secrecy, is the same spirit that has affected others openly, just on a more extreme level. Some are hiding it, some are not. If you are watching two women getting it on, it’s the same spirit operating. You are just as guilty as the 2 openly gay people. Does it make you gay? No. But it still makes you guilty of perversion.

    I have also noticed that there is a stereotype, men together are considered repulsive, by most, while most men will admit to enjoying watching 2 women together. This is no less shameful. Wrong Is wrong. Now this is not just a struggle for men as we often hear, in fact I think just as many women struggle with Porn as do men. But then, there is that stereotype again. 

    This lustful spirit can come at a very early age, through sexual abuse or being exposed to a lustful lifestyle. It does not have any boundaries, as it affects every race, age and gender. Looking back, I see when, my struggle with lust began as I was molested at the age of 13 and exposed to porn. I had my own struggles with it as an adult, but I thank God that He has set me free and I can speak openly without shame about it.

    Now, the reason I mentioned the Pastor who admitted to being gay, is because his seduction came, through his addiction to porn. I have seen so many marriages destroyed from this addiction. Its important, to understand that your eyes are the gateway to your soul, anything you allow, will become a seed. Whatever you feed your body, is what it will begin to crave, i.e., unhealthy foods, drugs, sex etc. The more you give it, the more it wants. You allow demonic activity access to your life through porn. And you can guarantee that the enemy wants nothing more than to destroy you any way he can. 

    Remember, time doesn’t matter to him like it does to us. He doesn’t care how long it takes to destroy you. It will become a slow fade. That’s why, recognizing these spirits for what they are, and understanding how they operate is critical. I want you to really think on this…. you may think you are alone in your room in secret, but God knows all and I guarantee the enemy is watching!

    But here is the good news! You can be set free from anything!! God has given you a spirit of self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7. God wants you to be free. Ask God to help you and I promise you He will! Remember there is no shame in admitting you struggle, just don’t let the enemy keep you bound up in it. This is your year to be set free from all that has imprisoned you!

    Quick Message of Hope.

    A short message to give you some hope. Be blessed.

    Are You A Control Freak?

    control-freak

    As I was praying I felt the Lord impress on me the term, “control freak.” I sense that there are many of you God is wanting to do a, “heart transplant on.”
     
    There are many of you who need to be in control of everything. You like everything to be a certain way and when its not, you are quickly irritable. If you’re not sure if this is you, ask someone close to you! They will always be quick to let you know. 🙂
     
    Why?? Because control freaks are uptight and hard to get along with. They can become prideful and feel like their way is the only right way. I mean lets be real, all of us know someone like this, or we are this. This can manifest itself in the way we keep our house, the way we treat our family members or co-workers. The need to always be right and make people feel as if they can never live up to their expectations. This spirit can keep you in bondage. Control Freaks will lack inner peace.
     
    The truth is, most people that suffer from this, also suffer from anxiety and O.C.D. And tend to be very insecure. They often have such high expectations for themselves and rarely are able to live up to them, which causes a feeling of, “not being good enough.”
     
    Do you see the vicious cycle this creates? Both in the person under this spirit of control and the people around them under their influence.
     
    I want to encourage you that if you are the person living with or working with such a person, you must learn to set boundaries, otherwise you will always walk around feeling defeated.
     
    If you are the person who has this incessant need to always be in control and right, I want you to know that,
    “you are enough”, just as you are. But your need for perfectionism is driving the people you love away. God wants to do a work in you and He will but, the longer you resist Him, the longer it will take. I know you have been hurt and you don’t trust people, But God can always be trusted. He wants to do a new work in you, but as long as you are holding on to every hurt and every failure, its going to take much longer than necessary. So I pray that today, you would have the courage to ask God to help heal you and free you from the spirit of control. You were created to be free!
     
    Its ok, to be organized, but God isn’t going to fit in your box. So if you want a full life with Him, you must be willing to loosen up and let God be God, and let the people around you be who they were created to be as well.
    I bless you and I encourage you to trust God for this. I guarantee He knows exactly what He is doing.

    Get Ready For The Shaking!

    understand

    GET READY FOR THE SHAKING

    The shift has happened! On June 2nd I released a Word about feeling a sense of urgency, like I was running out of time to get things done and cleaned out. It feels like “spring cleaning,” only its summer! I wanted to start going through my house and getting rid of things I no longer needed, and organizing things that had become cluttered. God revealed to me today that as it is in the natural so it is in the spirit. What does that mean?

    That means between now and fall, expect MAJOR life changes, God is going to require you to, “purge,” purge things that are no longer needed, get rid of bad habits, bad thoughts, wrong ideas. God is going to completely shatter the box of religiosity!! He is going to come through like He did in the temple, and make a mess of things!!

    He will no longer be mocked, He will no longer be kept in a pretty little socialite box and He will no longer allow His children to be victims of this Religious/Legalistic Spirit that runs rampant in our perfectly padded pews. If your not ready for what God is going to do, you better hunker down then, because its going to take the nation by storm. This is on such a grand scale.

    Everything that can be shaken will be. Expect more earthquakes in the natural as God is showing what is going on in the Spirit. God is shaking you to awaken you! It is to prepare you for what’s coming up quickly.

    This is a season of divine Kingdom alignments and God will not be outdone, so because you have asked Him for His will, your going to get it. But it might not look like what you think. God is going to shake up business partnerships, church relationships, marriages. ANYTHING that is unequally yoked will be shaken off. But don’t fear as God never takes anything away without giving you something in return. Many of you have entered into relationships that were not ordained by God, He allowed it to grow you. But now it has served its purpose and where you are going, they cant go. So when people walk away, or you suddenly have a hardened heart towards people you thought were lifers. Be encouraged. Anything you give up for God will be restored to you!!

    If you want what God has for you it WILL require sacrifice.

    Get ready to be completely undone. Just be discerning to know what to keep and what to release. You wanted Gods Will, well here it comes. SUDDENLY things are SHAKING. I speak FREEDOM into you, freedom to be exactly who God called you to be with no limitations and nothing holding you back. And I speak a discerning spirit to help you navigate this new territory you will be occupying!–Choose Faith over Fear my friends and watch the impossible become possible with God!  Rejoice!! Your taking new ground for the Kingdom.
