Prophetic word received on September 19, 2021:
Over the last 48 hours, I have heard the Lord speaking about His ways and a new path that is before many people right now. The Lord said, "There's a new path before you; don't deviate from it, for this pathway leads to houses of My glory."
In a vision, I began to see a commissioning of the Lord, as He revealed a new path set before many people—but it was a path that required a greater focus and diligence than ever before.
On the sidelines of this pathway, many things were attempting to distract people from walking down it. I could see the expectations of man and the 'crowd' going in a different direction. I could see doubt, fear and insecurity. I could see grief, pain, weariness and trauma that many people had walked through from previous seasons. I could see the fear of man and the fear of change. I could see the past season and the lure to hold onto it. All of these things were attempting to take away their focus.
I understood that for those who wanted to walk down this new path, it would require ferocious focus and obedience to the Lord. It would require silencing all other voices and a determination to look to Jesus alone—to follow Him wherever He might lead—even if others were going a different direction, and despite what they might think or say.
The Threshing Floor
As I looked closer, I realized that the entry point to this pathway was a threshing floor. I knew that those who desired to walk down it needed to enter this threshing floor in a deeper way; a deeper 'dying to self' needed to take place.
There was a 'wrestle' in the spirit taking place as Psalm 32:8-9 (TPT) filled the atmosphere:
"I hear the Lord saying, 'I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with My eyes as your guide. So don't make it difficult; don't be stubborn when I take you where you've not been before. Don't make Me tug you and pull you along. Just come with Me!'" (Photo via Pxhere)
Even though there was the sound of 'dying to many things' such as: the old season, running with certain people, doing things a certain way, the fear of missing out, caring about what others think, etc., I could hear the sound of LIFE. The sound was resounding louder than I'd heard in a long time.
In the midst of this transition and spiritual 'wrestle,' this confrontation with the soul, the flesh, and the enemy—where even hard conversations with certain people are required—the excitement in my spirit was one that I could hardly contain. For those who chose this path, even though it looked like they were going 'against the grain' in the natural, I knew that they were actually following the leading of the Holy Spirit. They were partnering with God to HOUSE HIS GLORY and establish HOUSES OF HIS GLORY all across the earth.
As these people were lying on the threshing floor, I began to see them rise up with such a deep dependency upon Him—surrendering to His ways and His leading. It reminded me of the strength of the Shulamite who came out of the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved (Song of Songs 8:5).
By following this new pathway in obedience to the Lord, and cleaving to His ways, it is positioning you to partner with Him...not only in a revealing of His glory, but in a MOVEMENT of His glory—a movement that is FAR BIGGER than you could ever imagine or dream of.
Giving Your 'Yes': The Birth of a Movement
The people who entered the threshing floor—which felt so much like a deep wilderness—rose OUT of it with a loud 'YES.'
As their yes partnered with the yes of the Father, I saw a MOVEMENT being birthed. It was like there was this domino effect—a MOMENTUM that was so significant. The ripple effect of this movement was being birthed within families, communities, cities, and nations.
The Lord began to show me that the acceleration and multiplication—which will take place within these surrendered ones—will not be contained; it can never be manufactured. It is a wave of His Spirit, flowing from the throne, and caught by the pure in heart that are burning with 'first love' fire; those who are willing to count the cost and follow Him—whatever that might look like.
On the threshing floor, many have experienced the most intense and relentless opposition, but they have also experienced the refiner's fire to purify and prepare them. NOW His glory shall be seen and revealed, and their partnership with the Spirit of God will bring a joy they have not experienced before.

They found great joy in obeying Him. Even if no one ever knew what they were doing—the different ways that they were extending His Kingdom—it didn't matter. There was no self-promotion within them. There was no fear of missing out. There was no need to plaster it all over social media, or scream it from the rooftops so that everyone could know how God was using them. They were living in deep humility before Jesus. The pure desire of their hearts was to give Him all the glory, and to live before the audience of One.
Through many tests and trials, they came out as pure as gold. Now, as they arose out of the threshing floor and into this new season, they were being entrusted with more than they had ever carried, walked in, or seen.
I began to see the word "YES" change to the word "EYES." Then Lord said, "They have given Me their YES, and they are receiving divine SIGHT and INSIGHT into what I am doing, and going to do, in the earth, in a deeper way than they have ever experienced. I am going to FILL the vats of their lives with revelation—with such clarity and wisdom—to steward and partner with My Spirit in what I will do in the days ahead."
Continue Down the Path
Friends, I encourage you: continue to give yourself wholeheartedly to the path the Lord is leading you down. Don't be distracted by what's on the sidelines. Follow the Shepherd; follow the Lion where He is leading. He will guide you, provide for you, and sustain you. He is leading you down a path to partner with Him in the new things He is doing—in a MOVE of His glory and to HOUSE HIS GLORY—in ways you cannot even imagine right now.
Your yes to the Lord is positioning you to know His heart, His voice, and His glory in a greater way and with greater momentum than you have ever known.
There's no need to fear; He is with you and has gone before you. Continue to seek His wisdom and obey His instruction as you walk down this path. Remain tender in a place of sensitivity before Him, as He leads and guides you in His wisdom (James 1:5).
You are not missing out if you are going in the opposite direction of the 'crowd.' Stay in your lane; stay on the path He is leading you down. You're moving into a season of experiencing the weight and manifestation of His glory in unprecedented ways.
