Prophetic word released on July 6, 2021:
Vision of Runners on a Dangerous Path
As I was praying yesterday morning I kept seeing thousands of runners carrying batons through a dangerous and foggy path. I heard the Lord say, "They are pioneers of My heart because they don't question what I ask; although it doesn't make sense, they just do it."
These runners were running when there was no visibility to see what was ahead, and yet they continued to run anyway. This is who you are...and the Father has seen it.
The Impact of Your "Yes"
In the months to come, you are going to see the impact of your "yes" upon your legacy—the baton you have been carrying is going out. The borders around you will extend. Your tent pegs are stretching wider and every ceiling around you is breaking. It has felt slow but it's working. Your yes in the dark has done more than you know.
Destiny Defining Moments That Will Alter Your Course
Yes, there are about to be destiny defining moments in the next few months that will alter the course of your path, because of your yes in the foggy unknown. There are going to be lights that turn on, doors that open, and treasures that unlock because against all odds, you dared to believe God and hold Him to His word. (Photo via Pxfuel)
God is declaring a breaker over your life for your season of being held up, delayed, and in waiting.
You will hear the sound of glass shattering. The restrictions that were imposed on you, the assignments set to cage and contain you, won't be able to restrict you anymore. They are already breaking and every once-formidable blockage will be no match for your newfound breaker anointing that will annihilate every restraint that you encounter.
The Giant of Fear Is Losing Its Footing
The spirit of fear yelled "No," but Heaven has been declaring "Go!" Right now, more than ever, you have been facing the defiance of the giant of fear—but it is beginning to lose its footing and be seen for the plague of powerless lies that it is. There is no stock or truth in its taunts and it has no claim on you or your family.
You Are Passing the Mountain of Hardship
You will lead your family over the mountain of hardship. It's been like an uphill battle to bring both spiritual health and natural stability to your home, but soon you will reach the peak of the Everest that you know has been your primary battle to contend for in this season. You will find rest. Your family will be able to put their bags down and rest, put down roots, shake off the trauma and weariness of the long trek, and go into health and wholeness.
You will feel the barriers breaking. You will feel the air change. You will breathe again, dream again, and laugh again. As you cross over the snake-line you will feel the massive difference in every part of your life, as every demonic annoyance suddenly falls away and you move on from that chapter of living in the war room, enduring the sleepless nights, and contending.
"You Have Outgrown Them and That's OK"
"You have outgrown them and that's OK," I heard the Lord say.
In your yes you have seen the dramatic separation of relationships and alignments, but God has been readying you for equally yoked family where you are not the scapegoat, the fixer, or squashed for choosing to follow God. It's time to find your tribe of other runners on the same journey as you. (Photo via Unsplash)
Unexpected Fruit Is About to Flood Out of Your Life
Now watch this space! In the next while, the most unexpected fruit is about to flood out of your life. I see the fruit of fresh wonder and adventure birthing books, ministries, songs, businesses, ideas, innovations, and new strategic pathways as a result of trusting God and stepping into the unknown. You will be so surprised at what will effortlessly flood from you.
Give Him Your Roads, Weary Traveler
So today, stop looking around; give Him your roads. Let Him heal your road wounds. Let Him wash your feet, weary traveler, and let Him speak love and affirmation into your soul. Well done for choosing Jesus in this season! The best is yet to come!
"The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled down, because the Lord is the One who holds his hand. I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging for bread." (Psalm 37:23-25)
