I heard the Lord say:
“In February, contend for transformation!”
“I desire to transform you from glory to glory, faith to faith, and strength in very visible ways in February. By the end of February, if you will follow My wisdom, your life can look completely different from the way it looks now.
You have been overwhelmed for too long. I need you to rest in Me and focus on the things that matter most. There is not enough of you, nor of time in the day, for you to perform at the capacity you expect from yourself.
You have been your hardest critic and your fiercest driver, and it is time for that to stop!
In February, I need you to identify the top 3-5 things that matter to you and develop the plan to transform those things that I will show you. You are going to need some help, and I don’t mean only Me!
It is time for you to obtain the help you need with the things which don’t require your attention personally. Don’t be afraid to invest in the help you need; your investment will reap rewards.
It is time for us to transform the things that matter most–together.
I have been calling you away from busyness and into rest. But how can you rest when you try to do everything yourself?
Don’t be afraid, however; I am with you to teach you. I am with you to bring you the help you need if you will but go out to find it. And I will sustain you and carry you through the process.
February is a month of transformation.
That transformation will come when you let old things go. You have been mired up in too many things, but only one thing is needful: to live in the instant with Me.
When you let old things go, the new thing that I wish to do can come in. Otherwise, your capacity is too full for My new things to enter.
I have new things for you that you know not of.
The Scriptures for the month are Jeremiah 33:3 and 1 Corinthians 2:9-10:
“‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know'” (Jeremiah 33:3).
“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).”
And the Lord continued:
“I need you to contend for these new things to come forth in February–and I mean, contend in February for these things to actually manifest themselves in your life in February. You are going to need these new things in February; they are part of your transformation process.
- Your waiting period is over for connection with the Body of Christ; I am connecting you now.
- Your waiting period for help is over; I am bringing you the help you need.
- And your waiting period for getting free from procrastination–a waiting period you imposed on yourself, for you weren’t ready to face overcoming procrastination yet–is over.
You have reached “fed up status,” but I am with you to feed you and pull you up.
This “being fed up” is not the worst thing in the world; I allowed you to get to the place of frustration so you would be motivated to change. When you can no longer tolerate the way things are, it is then when you will work with Me and allow Me to change you.
I am going to feed you throughout this process.
I will give you wisdom, and I will help you get the false wisdom–the wisdom of the world–out of your life. You have been hanging onto some methods and ways of thought that have been too performance-oriented, and not sufficiently “receiving-oriented.” This is the wisdom of the world; My wisdom is different.
My wisdom expects you to do everything I have told you to do; nothing more or less. You cannot conjure up breakthough; you can only labor diligently according to My Word, and then receive. You obey and receive; that is how My Kingdom works. You do not earn.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for you serve the Lord Christ.
You desire to strive and excel for My glory, and you should excel. But you have not given yourself any breaks. You push and push and strive and strive, and you cannot continue like that! I would rather you pray more and worry less; rest more and work less.
Has not My greatest provision ALWAYS come forth for you when you have decided to rest? You know it has! I have always shown up, shown out, and displayed My glory on your behalf when you have STOPPED and rested and simply RECEIVED My love.
I want you to focus on receiving My love this month, beloved baby of mine.
I need you to rest. You got away from rest, but go back to it. It is okay; I am not mad at you; I love you! I am just trying to help you.
Will you let Me help you, though?
Start today to rest and pray. Begin today to slow down and take pressure off yourself. You will be much better off as soon as you begin to obey Me in this.
I love you, My child. I never get tired of talking about rest, and I know what you face. I know what you go through. You are being refined in My fire, but the fire is for your good. It’s for your betterment. And rest does not go against My refining process; resting is the hardest work of all.
I am with you to keep you. Never forget it.
Beloved, if this prophetic word for February is for you today, please leave a comment below and let me know how the Lord is speaking to YOU.
