Beloved, have you learned to survive without favor? Is the Lord blessing you with His own favor, even if the favor you used to have with certain people is gone?
If so, Papa gave me a prophetic word for you for the rest of February and the month of March:
The Lord is giving you favor you don't need.
I sense in the Spirit that you have been through hell and back, and in the process of that journey the devil robbed you of some levels of favor. (Not all your favor, but some.)
However, you learned to walk without the favor you lost. You depended on God for favor, not for people. You were not swayed or dismayed. You took it in stride and said, “Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
You have made tremendous progress while you depended only on the Lord for your favor. You have learned and grown. The Lord has split open the proverbial Red Sea for you. He has made a way in the wilderness and a path through the mighty waters.
Throughout all this, you have accomplished more than you ever dreamed.
Some of those accomplishments have been evidenced by internal growth. You made it through things you thought were too strong for you, and you have grown tremendously as a result. However, some of those accomplishments can also be seen on the outside. You have done some things that have made others gape in awe at your life–and at the work of the Lord.
But now, the Lord says:
“I am giving you favor you no longer need.
I know you have your own favor with Me, and that is truly all you need. But in this season, I am giving you favor you don't need. I am doing this because I desire to honor you. Let Me remind you of My Word in Psalm 91:15, which says:
‘He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.'
You have called upon Me, and I have answered you. I have been with you in trouble. I have delivered you, and I have honored you publicly.
But now, I will honor you more.
I am honoring you because I want to, and because you depend on Me.
If you sought the honor of men as your desire, there would be nothing I could do for you. Men's honor is an idol, and I would have to deal with your heart for seeking the honor that comes from men, rather than the honor that comes from Me.
But you have not sought the honor of men. You have sought Me and My face. And because you are seeking Me, and have been seeking Me, I choose to reward you now.
Be on the lookout for My favor–favor you do not need, but which I choose to give you anyway.
I am clothing you with favor. I am draping you with it; girding you with it; surrounding you with favor as with a shield. I am doing these things because I am the Lord, and nothing is beyond My reach. Nothing is too hard for Me. No blessing is beyond My ability to pour out on you.
Look for favor in four quadrants:
In this season, you will experience My favor in four quadrants of your life. These quadrants are:
1. The spiritual quadrant.
I will always bless your spiritual life first, for it is most important. In this season of favor, you will have deeper encounters with Me and My Spirit than you have ever had. Ask Me for the types of encounters of which you have only dreamed–the dramatic, supernatural things you see in the pages of Scripture–and I will give them to you.
Also, I would like to remind you that the early bird gets the worm. You have been contending and contending early in the mornings with Me, and now the prizes for which you have been contending will burst forth suddenly.
2. The learning quadrant.
You have been learning at one rate, but you are about to learn at an accelerated pace. You will find yourself graduating from some lessons this month and entering others.
I say it again: you will graduate. No longer will you go around and around the mountain of adversity. You have learned your lessons well, and you pass the test.
Because you are passing the test this month, I am giving you governmental authority to lead other people out of the wilderness. Be sure to teach the people well whom I send you. I have confidence in you; you are fully able and equipped to do it. I believe in you!
3. The family quadrant.
You will see victory in your children this month. My wings have been outstretched over them all this time, even when you have not seen it. But this month, you will see your children experience victory and breakthrough.
Prepare the wreath of laurels for their head. Prepare to support and encourage them as they experience victory in a whole new way.
Your role is changing from intercessor with no voice to encourager with great influence. You will find opportunities on every side to encourage your children. Take advantage of every one.
4. The financial quadrant.
This month, you will fly high with your finances. Where you have been seated watching the skies, you will now find yourself flying amidst the clouds. Others will watch and be amazed. You will have a testimony.
This will be your first flight of many in your finances.
Say not, “I hope it lasts.” Instead, say, “Thank You, Father, for the early rain and the latter rain poured out on me together!” Thank Me and trust the wind of My Spirit, for it is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit that you can experience these things.
As you fly high with your finances, you will experience an occasional “burr under your saddle.”
Things will happen that look like they will take you down, but these things are only illusions. They are darts sent by the enemy to attack you. Rebuke them in the name of Jesus, and command them to leave you. They are not real–only distractions. They are the enemy offering you the chance to doubt Me. Refuse his unholy offering and laugh at what he says, for he has no authority or power in your life.
Reject the “burrs” the enemy tries to put under your saddle and continue to fly high with Me. Keep your eyes on Me by offering a continual melody of praise and gratitude to Me, for nothing will be able to bring you down.
In conclusion, I would like to remind you of My Word:
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).
Nothing can separate you from Me, and this month you will see that I have been with you all along. Nothing can separate you from My love or from My goodness, and I am the Giver of good and perfect gifts.
Believe Me. Receive from Me.
Draw on Me as your Life, Health, Strength, and Provision. I am all of these things and more, and you will receive as you draw on Me.”
Thank You, Jesus! I receive this word! Do you?
If you receive this word, leave a comment below! And if Holy Spirit spoke something to you above that confirmed what He has already been showing you, please do share!
