Things that are shocking are coming the next few weeks dear friends — hard things to digest and bear.
Every year I go back and review the Words The Holy Spirit speaks to me in prayer and while waiting in the Presence of God and Study of His Word.
I am simply one
of many who share what is received or impressed upon my heart. I run it by others for accountability as well.
Often, it takes time for these things to fully unfold and make sense. After such a challenging
2020 year of upheaval, it’s interesting to see now what The LORD had said.
I share it again with those of you who know what these require.
Insights for 2020
“And so says The LORD, the Spirit of Grace, the Voice of Wisdom, and the only Almighty One.
As you cry out for times of refreshing,
for a change in the hearts of men, for a move of my Spirit across the lands of Earth, My Command to you is that you begin to create an atmosphere where I may speak My Plans according to My Word and according to My Prerogatives.
I will lead you and guide you with enough light each day as you come to that narrow place with me.
I will strengthen your weakened spiritual muscles as you dialogue in honesty with me and repent
of foolish choices and foolish actions that have caused many to be shattered and shamed because you spoke out of a calling, rather than out of following My Voice.
Begin to dig ditches in Prayer.
Become entrenched and immersed in it, never ceasing.
Prepare places where My Rain may fall and cause a fresh drinking place for those yet to taste of My Goodness,
as well as for those who are thirsty within My Body.
Begin to dig ditches in prayer in dry places, with humility and goodness.
Lean upon Me, trust
in Me, do not lean upon your own understanding, for you have well seen that having done this in the past you have missed many opportunities to prepare a way of salvation for others.
have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10).
So comfort yourself, weary and tried believer with this thought.
Does not The
Word come like a soft shower, quieting the fury of the flame?
Is it not a fireproof armor against the heat, which will then have no power?
happens to you in this valley of weeping, know that I have chosen it for you.
If you still require an even greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of man with you in the valley. In that secret
place with you.
There He sits by your side, One whom you have not seen but whom you love, and whether you know it or not, this is the true friend who sticks closely by you.
I will never leave one whom I have chosen as my own.
Great grace. Great mercy. Great promise.
All these are yours, extended from my hand,
and for you to extend from your hand.
Now is the time… to live out the heart and life of the servant as I lead you with the little light that you have at this time.
It is all you need as long as it comes from Me.
It is a time to learn to march forward, to dig ditches, to prepare, so that others may also drink freely with no restraints.
When I come and speak to you and move among you, I express everything that is pure and lovely and has a good report, and sin and uncleanliness depart.
Peace also rains when I move with humble
Gentleness will be the result of my transforming power.
Harmlessness will follow, for hearts that are touched by me are never exhibiting any
feelings of superiority, self-assertiveness, or showiness.
My Grace is sufficient for you, and you will find it if you will seek it, and above all if you will express it.
“Be strong in the grace that is in Me….”(2 Timothy 2:1)
As a reservoir empties itself into pipes, so have I emptied out My Grace for My People in this next wave of My Heart.
Of my fullness you have received grace for Grace.
Grace is always available from me without price.
yourselves from overconfident, arrogant sins.” (Psalm 19:13)
You will certainly stumble if you look away from the One who is able to keep you from falling. Be very cautious about pushing yourself
to the forefront of public gatherings and among the more visible.
If you are to be used in higher visibility, let it be Me who promotes you there.
who drive themselves to the forefront will also have greater scrutiny and unfortunate exposure of hidden agendas and unholy transactions in 2020 and sadly will be brought low again because of their self presumption of importance.
If your love is fervent, your faith constant, and your hope bright, continue nonetheless to be on your guard and cry out, “Keep us from temptation!”
The seasons revolve according
to my Divine appointment and man cannot change their schedule. In the spiritual as in the natural realm, man’s power is limited.
I alone can remove the winter of spiritual death from an individual
or from a Church.
Let Me hear you say, “Not my will but as you will oh LORD!”
As you yield to Me, My People, I will yield in return and
bring the sweetness of My Holy Presence into your very homes, your gatherings, whether modest or larger numbers are attending.
I look for honest, wisdom filled, and humble people to move among and to move
Let it be, as I desire! As I will! Allow me to determine what is the best for you.
Be content to leave your prayer and your petitions in
I know when to give, how to give, what to give, and what to withhold.
As you visit Me in the secret place of repentance and brokenness,
as the path becomes narrower, seeking me earnestly and often times pleading, with humility and resignation, you shall surely prevail.
I AM the light on your pathway. And, I AM all you need.”
