I read a prophetic word for the Body of Christ recently that said, “You’re in the ‘Big Leagues’ now… that’s why you are taking ‘bigger hits’ than ever before.”
Do you relate to that word??
Two Awake & Arise conferences ago, I felt in my spirit so strongly, and spoke, that ‘The stakes are really high.’ It matters so much that we heed the voice of God and say YES to his leading – right NOW.
I am seeing how true that is in my and many other’s lives around me. I am witnessing the fruit of people saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to His voice and have never been more aware of ‘the power of our own choices’ in leading to life or to death.
Last September I received a prophetic word that said, “There is a storm coming, the likes of which you have never seen,” followed by some reassurance that I would be ok. I wanted to reject that word, but as I asked God about it, I kept seeing a vision of a huge wave, like a Tsunami, coming toward me. During worship one evening I was asking God about it again, and asking Him what I was supposed to do to prepare, if indeed this storm was on it’s way. Suddenly He showed me a doorway in the midst of the wave, and spoke to my heart, “Janet, I want you to step through this doorway in the wave – and come into My rest. I don’t want you to ride out this storm.” At the same time someone handed me a note that said “Psalm 91.”
“She who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand.] I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! [Then] He will cover me with His pinions, and under His wings shall I trust and find refuge.” I’ve repeated this out loud every time I begin to feel anxious or upset as I walk out my present circumstances.
Further, verse 8 and 14-16 promise: “Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.” And, “Because she has set her love upon Me, therefore will I deliver her; I will set her on high, because she knows and understands My name [has personal knowledge of My mercy, love and kindness – trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake her, no, never]. She shall call upon Me, and I will answer her, I will be with her in trouble, I will deliver her and honor her. With long life will I satisfy her and show her My salvation.”
Two Psalms later David says: “The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up the roaring of their waves. BUT the Lord on high is mightier and more glorious than the noise of many waters, yes, than the mighty breakers and waves of the sea.” (Psalm 93: 3,4)
Selah. Pause and calmly think about that. 🙂
If your life is facing a storm right now, welcome to the Big Leagues. Set your love on Him, heed His voice, and come join me in ‘the secret place.’
The stakes are high.
