"Game, Set and Match!"
I recently had a vision of a tennis match being played. For those of you who know the rules and terms of tennis, the game had been played for 5 sets; it was a very long game. The game was up to match point and it had been going between deuce and advantage for the longest time.
(Match point is when the player who is winning will win the match if they get the next point. Deuce is when the score is tied at 40-40 or higher and either player simply needs to win by two to conclude the game. Advantage scoring refers to the side which wins the next point after deuce – it is said to have the advantage. "Game, set and match" is declared when the match has a winner.)
Prophetically, this picture was speaking of the threshold place where we stand before a breakthrough, when it seems like we are about to breakthrough, only to experience yet another delay or back step. Sometimes this can go on for years.
Many have been back and forth from "deuce" to "advantage" like in the tennis match; they have felt frustrated and weary because the game has just been so long... (more)
We are in a season of renovations as the Lord works in us, our families and circumstances to UPGRADE and EXPAND, so that we will be prepared to carry greater measures of His glory to the territories that God has ordained for His people to possess. Kingdom expansion is God's goal through each and every one of us. Those who have faced heavy warfare and spiritual travail over the last 8 weeks are entering into a season of transformation in both the spiritual and natural realms unlike any they have ever experienced before.
"And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV)
I have seen massive preparations going on in Heaven's "mail room" to transfer natural resources of monumental proportions to tip the scales of justice in the lives of the people God is sending His prepared ones to help. For those that have been chosen and called, and for those that have spent the past season in preparation for this MEGA shift by surrendering to God's will in their lives with a humble and teachable spirit, I say: Steady yourselves and stand firm. Open your arms. Ready yourself to receive the weight of God's glory that He is unveiling to His people... (more)
The Lord says, "There has been a mighty battle against the mind of many of My daughters, but it is now lifting and the wind of My empowerment is filling the sails of their faith to commission them on new, pioneering pathways in My name!"
You Are Not Going Crazy
The Lord showed me that there has been a horrific battle against the minds of many daughters of God in the Body of Christ. There has been a specific assignment that has been sent against them to bring a cloudiness, a fog, and a lack of clarity of thinking. As a result, many of them have been thinking they are crazy or going to go crazy.
The pressure on the mind has been intense, but in the battle the Lord showed me that He is bringing forth a deep fortification of faith in Christ and His Word that cannot be shaken. There is a major battle against your minds, daughters of God. Now is the time to stand and stand in the Word. You are not going crazy. You are moving into greater clarity and revelation of His truth and the strategies of His heart.
I heard two words thundering in the spirit: "DIVINE RESOLVE." So I looked up the definition of "resolve":

"My music is having crossover appeal, but it doesn't mean that I'm leaving one for the other or that I'm going to be swept up by one thing or the other. For me, it's like, 'Oh, everything just got even more clear.'
