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.

    A Year of Restoration

    • bd09cd4c5d88fd5149e966cf9dc43c16

      I want to encourage you tonight with my testimony and Gods goodness. Many of you are new and don’t know much about me except what you see me writing about. However, I want you to know that It has only been since the beginning of this year that my writing ministry has taken off. I used to write publicly for my local newspaper (faith articles) for 8 years. I had a very active ministry and was a licensed minister.

      After 17years of a very unhealthy toxic marriage I went through a horrible divorce. I gave up everything, including my ministries. I laid it all at Jesus feet. I was lied about, shunned, and condemned and ran into a cave by Jezebel and her cronies. I was completely stripped and devastated.

      But Jesus never left me. I have been in hiding and healing for the last 5 years. I have not served in any ministry nor have I become a member of any church. I have allowed the Holy Spirit to minister to me. I have been in a deep season of consecration fasting and prayer. It hasn’t all been spiritual. I was stubborn and God had and still has a lot of work to do in me. Years of ridicule, control and manipulation do not go away overnight.

      Jesus has been such a gentleman and gently pulling one layer away at a time. I am sharing this with you because I want you to know that we all have our seasons that we must go through. Some longer than others. Since the beginning of March I have had more happen to me, through me and for me in ministry than I can even wrap my head around.

      God is opening doors that I could never open on my own. He is making room for my gifts of writing and stretching me through making videos and teaching through webinars. Friends, it is all happening so fast and I am in awe of what God is doing. My prophetic voice has opened like never before. God is RESTORING everything I lost and gave up. He is blessing me and I am so excited for this time.

      I used to look at others being blessed and used by God and wonder, “when is my time Lord?” Well, I can tell you the time is now. Many of you have experienced the same hardships, the same cave, the same wilderness time. I am here to tell you that we are in a season of RESTORATION God is restoring. He is paying you back. You will get back double for your trouble in less time. You are not going to have to work hard for these blessings. You won’t have to go looking for opportunities, they will come looking for you. Your time is now, your healing is now, your blessings are now, your opportunities are now!! We are in a season of NOW. A season of sudden lies.

      Get ready for the downpour. God isn’t saying look at what I am GOING to do for you. No, He is saying, “look at what I HAVE done for you.” You are going to be completely undone this year with Gods goodness. It will overtake you and you will be on your face in awe of His love for you. Get ready NOW!

    ​**LIVING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF PAIN**

    Good morning friends, I just wanted to encourage you this morning. I just felt led to speak life into you today. I don’t know what you are facing, but God does. He wants you to remember that you are not alone and you are not forgotten. I know when your walking through the pain, It is so hard to see the light at the end. Some of you have been going through the same battle for years, and you have become so depressed and you have just accepted that, that is how things are supposed to be. 

    That my friends, is simply not true. God wants the best for you. “So then why hasn’t God done anything about my situation??” You ask. Well I cant tell you why God allows certain things to happen to people. But I can tell you that He is good. That His plan is good. That His love for you is without limits. That He wants nothing but the best for you.  I sit today with a thankful heart and on the other side of pain.  But for many years I was an un-happy person. I was depressed and hated my life. In fact I didn’t want to kill myself, because I was too scared to face the consequences and I didn’t want to leave my kids without their momma.  However there were many nights I would just cry and pray that I could just go to sleep and never wake up. (Spiritual Suicide if you will)
     Most people didn’t know that because I never shared my troubles, I was the one who everyone else came to for support. Very few people knew my pain. But God did. I learned to PRAISE my way through my situation, I learned to make the best of what I had. I learned to speak to those things that are not as though they were! But things didn’t change until I did. When you have the faith to believe that things will change, then they will. But you have to walk it out. God says to you today…” I know the plans I have for you…you don’t have to be afraid, you don’t have to worry…the plans I have for you are good, trust me, believe that I am good and that I love you, for I am making a way, my plans may be hidden from you, but my presence is never far away, draw near to me and see that I am good, for I have come to give you life and to give it more abundantly, trust me for I am good.”
    I want you to know that there is another side of pain, and it is Good. And if you will BELIEVE that God truly loves you and wants the best for you, you will begin to see the changes. Praise your way out…stop letting the enemy keep you at bay. You have a Purpose and God has a plan. And the enemy would love nothing more than to keep you in a place of defeat. But how bad do you want out of that place of misery? Only you can decide how much is enough. I waited for years on God, it wasn’t until I took the first step of Faith that I saw God move. So while your waiting on God, I hear God saying, ” I am waiting on you.”  Get up, wipe yourself off and even if your scared, do it afraid. I promise you wont be disappointed when you trust God, Because this too shall pass.~ Gypsy
