I saw in the Spirit that the Lord is placing a holy anointing on His people to prepare for His blessing.
I saw people in a state of rest, and suddenly they began running around like ping-pong balls in small spaces, doing the work of the Lord with extreme efficiency and anointing. They never got out of their place of rest; they were simply anointed to handle tough tasks that had intimidated them for so long.
I also saw the Lord suddenly making a way for things to happen that people have been fasting and praying for for months. These were things that they had been told could never happen, would never happen; but suddenly, all the factors lined up and the Lord gave His permission. He nodded His head once and every dam of resistance broke, as if those dams of resistance had never been there at all.
The Lord showed me that the reason things haven't happened sooner was that they wouldn't have been the right thing. He had not presented the best options to His people before, so people would have made decisions based on second-best because the things that eye has not seen and ear has not heard had not been presented to them at the time.
The Lord showed me that He is in charge of dams of resistance.
Even when those dams of resistance appear insurmountable, the Lord is still in charge of them. He is using those dams as restrainers to protect you from getting out of His timing.
The dam will break and water will gush forth when He gives the word, though. If He has put something in your spirit, don't neglect to keep it and ponder it in your heart, birthing it in prayer.
I saw in the Spirit that the Lord put commissionings on people in December 2019–commissionings to do things the world said they would not or could not do.
The dams of resistance are still holding those commissionings back, but they are being held up for a time and a season. They are being safely kept and stored up in you, so they can grow roots; they are not being prevented permanently.
I heard the Lord say, “Your time of hiddenness is not over yet.”
Isaiah 49 discusses Jesus, and how Father God hid Him like an arrow in His quiver until the set time for Him to be made public to the world. And I heard in the Spirit that many people are discouraged with God and indeed some have given up, thinking that He has neglected or forgotten them. However, they are not forgotten; they are simply being kept, again, for God's perfect timing.
I saw the Lord is crowning your year with good things.
The crown doesn't go on the newest part of the body (e.g. newly-grown fingernails); it goes on the wisest part of the body–the head, which is the center of thought. Many people have felt that the crowning of the year must occur when the year is new (e.g. at the New Year), but the Lord showed me that He is actually placing His crown of good things on the wisest and deepest part of your year–which is now.
The Lord showed me that He has deep, healing, life-changing revelations to hand out in this season of rest.
Many have felt led to rest, but we have not understood that the rest we have been given is only the surface of the matter. The Lord wants to take us deeper into His rest than we have ever been; to plumb the depths of the thermal pools of His rest and relaxation.
He has a place of rest for each of us in which He will come up under each person supernaturally, doing in one day what it would have taken ten weeks for Him to accomplish through us if we were not in that place of rest.
The Lord is removing strongholds of rejection during this time as well.
The enemy has tempted many to embrace a stronghold of rejection, but the Lord says He is freeing you from the tendency to enter the traps and guises of the enemy. The Lord is laying bare all the devices of the enemy to entrap and ensnare you, and you will see through them like glass.
After you see through the enemy's traps and devices, it will be up to you to renew your mind yet again in the Word of God, so that you do not pick up–even unwittingly–the traps and thoughts the enemy is trying to place in your mind.
The thoughts of rejection you are thinking are NOT from you.
Know this in this season: the thought is not yours; it is the whispered words of a demon sent on assignment against you; but that demon has no place in your life unless you give it to him. DO NOT allow the ungodly words you may hear whispered in your ears to become your own. Reject them and speak the Word of God out over them, and demons will flee from you.
I saw a great outpouring of the Spirit of adoption.
Holy Spirit is the Spirit of adoption; and when He manifests Himself, we receive a baptism of the love of God. Everything in us cries out to God, “Abba! Father!” (“Abba” is the affectionate, diminutive word in Hebrew for “Daddy God!” or even “Papa God!”)
I saw this outpouring of the Spirit of adoption breaking strongholds of rejection.
Many have tried and tried to break out of thought patterns of rejection, but they kept getting pulled back in and aren't sure why. Through this outpouring of the Spirit of adoption, God is breaking old thought patterns and strongholds by pulling people into an overwhelming encounter with His love and goodness. This encounter will be so strong that the old thought patterns will dissolve in its wake, never to be seen again.
I saw that the storm you thought would hurt you is actually meant to refresh you, and to propel you higher.
The voice of God has sent His storm with thunderings and lightnings into your life. Yes, He occasionally sends storms. But this storm is not meant to hurt you; it is meant to ensconce you in a quiet, secret place where you can heal. It is a form of spiritual hospitalization, if you will–but the most compassionate, caring, most luxurious, most calming, peaceful, and restful hospitalization you could ever imagine.
Beloved, if you've been in despair, do not give up hope.
Hope assured does not disappoint, and your faith in God is bringing you into a season of rest, refreshment, rejuvenation, and new purpose. Abide in Him as He leads you through this valley, for His expectations for you WILL come to pass if you remain in Him!
