What God Is Doing In The Spirit Realm Right Now

A prophetic, encouraging word about what God is doing in the Spirit realm right now. By Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comHave you noticed anything odd going on in the spirit realm recently? I sure have. I’ve been watching and praying, and asking God to show me what’s behind some of the things I’ve seen.

This is what I see about what God is doing in the spirit realm right now:

It’s about foundations. He’s building, and in some cases rebuilding and/or shoring up, the foundation of your life.

If you’re a new believer, He’s building your foundation. This means:

  • He’s teaching you that you CAN make godly decisions and that you DO know how to make godly decisions.
  • He’s teaching you, one step at a time, how to stand on your own two feet.
  • He’s teaching you that His grace truly is sufficient for you (2 Corinthians 12:9).
  • He’s teaching you that the anointing of the Holy Spirit in you truly does teach you all things (1 John 2:27).
  • He’s teaching you what it means to seek Him.
  • He’s teaching you how to manage your schedule so that you can seek Him first on a daily basis. (And if you will, you’re learning that He’ll make every other part of your day fall into place perfectly.)

If you’re a more mature believer, He’s rebuilding and shoring up your foundation. In some cases, He’s extending your foundation as well, in preparation for adding onto the house of your life.

This means:

  • He’s reminding you to seek Him first.
  • If you’re like me, He’s probably challenging you to examine your decisions and priorities to seek Him first again, in a new way.
  • He’s getting you back on track with essential parts of wise, successful, godly living, such as setting goals and managing your schedule.
  • He’s setting up foundational relationships for the next part of your life and ministry.
  • He may also be bringing you into what feels like a forced period of rest. Don’t worry about the “forced” part. Sometimes it’s God’s sweet mercy. 🙂 Just embrace the rest and seek Him. He’s setting you up for the next thing.

Related: Read my story about my forced period of rest here, in my series “Rest In God, Reach Your Destiny.”

I’m reminded of this Scripture:

Start-quoteEnlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; 

Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.

For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited” (Isaiah 54:2-3).

There is always a time of preparation before God expands your life. I believe we are in such a time right now.

It’s a time when, brick by brick, God is laying the foundation of your life. Sometimes that means He allows a stripping away, so He can rebuild things–or so He can launch you into promotion. Sometimes it’s simply a time of rest.

You are God’s workmanship; His building.

He knows exactly what He’s doing in your life, and His work in you right now is an essential part of your destiny and relationship with Him. He’s about to bring you into awesome things, and right now is the preparatory season for the next thing in your life.

So my question for you today is: Are you ready for the next brick in your foundation?

  • If He’s bringing you into a period of rest, will you cooperate? Will you slow down and rest so He can accomplish His purposes for you in this time?
  • If He’s teaching you how to routinely make godly decisions, will you choose to respond His way today when you face a difficult situation?
  • If He’s speaking to you about your schedule, will you ask Him for the schedule He wants you to operate by, and do what He says?

In my personal life, I’ve been off-track with my schedule and intentional choices for several months. I’ve been living by putting out fires, rather than setting goals and making intentional decisions. My time-management hasn’t been corresponding to my priorities, which is a recipe for stress any day.

So yesterday, the Lord led me to spend some time writing down goals for this week and next week, re-visiting where I’m at in several areas of life, and getting my schedule back in order. (I used the forms and tools in my downloadable Arise, Shine! Vision Retreat Handbook, which I highly recommend.) 🙂 It only took about 30 minutes, but I felt like a new person after I was done. Why? Because managing my schedule and making written goals is a huge part of powerful living, and God was shoring up my foundation so I’d be ready for the new things He’s about to bring me into.

Whatever your personal situation is, God may also be speaking to you about decisions to make, priorities to rearrange, and how to live intentionally.

God is building the foundation of your life right now. This is an opportune, special moment, filled with promise. He is restoring or building the skills, habits, and relationships in your life (most importantly, your relationship with Him) that you need to live a prosperous, anointed, powerful life of intimacy with Him and others.

So will you jump in with both feet, obey, seek Him first, and let Him have His way? If so, I believe you’ll be very glad you did.

Does this message resonate with you today? Do you sense God building the foundation of your life right now? If so, please let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you!

    All of your posts and books are heaven sent to me at the right time in my life. I know the gifts that the Lord has placed in me and I had been using them more previously than recently. I know the Lord is saying to me that He knows that I want to finish my doctorate, but not to leave Him out! Not that I have left Him out, but I sure could have spent a lot more time with Him than I have been. Nothing is before God and I know that!!! So He has me in a “forced place of rest” to abide in Him so that I can trust Him more instead of trying to help Him out, instead of trying to rush things. I need to trust Him while I wait on Him and know that everything is in His timing, not mine!!!!!!

    I thank you for sharing your love, passion and commitment with the Lord because it is EXACTLY WHAT I NEED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I will pray for you as well.

    1. Praising God with you, Kahn! That’s so awesome. Thanks for letting me know, and enjoy your rest! 😉

    This was a confirmation from God where he has me right now. It is a season of rest, spending time with him, and goal setting for his plans in my life. He has put dreams and desires on my heart recently that I never had before. I’m so excited to see where he will take these dreams.

    1. Yayyyyy! That’s terrific, Lisa! I’m excited for you. And glad to hear about your goals. Making goals is one of my favorite things to do. 🙂

      Thanks for reading and for letting me know!

  3. Hello Jamie,
    Thank you so much for this post, it was right on point. I know that The Lord is working on foundational changes for me and is in the process of revealing these plans, this is a season I should be restings and I have entered into a deeper relationship with Him. My dreams are on a whole new level. I know that he has been telling me to get things on order, rearrange some things. You touched on every point thank you for the confirmation.

    1. Janice, that’s amazing. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m right in that same place with you. Papa is helping me reorder some things too, and charge up my faith and time with Him for a new level of intimacy. Thank You, Father! He’s such a good Papa to us!!!

  4. Oh boy does this message speak to me today. This is right exactly in line with where God has me right now. Re-arranging, changing my line of thinking is freeing and yet even a little bit scary, but I know that I can trust Him. I know there are some things he told me to do awhile ago that I have really been putting off, and in fact if I look over the many years, I can see that He was gently nudging me on a path toward a more peace-filled, restful life operating in His gifts to me, but I didn’t totally see it, and this week it became very clear! so thank you for sharing this post. Right on time cuz He’s an On-Time God!

    1. Wow. Yes. Thank You, Jesus, for blessing my sister! I’m with you about that rearranging stuff, Sharon! Sometimes I feel like I’m stepping off a cliff, but thank God, those unknowns are only unknown to us – He knows all about it and we can trust Him. Praising Jesus with you. I’m looking for miracles in this area on this Pentecost Sunday, too. 🙂 Thank You Jesus! Have a great day, Sharon, and thank you for reading my blog!
