From the desk of Steve Shultz:
I'm going to keep this really short...so many incredible words have been coming in regarding the summer months we are entering into.
Let me remind you what Scripture says in Amos 3:7, "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing His plan
to His servants the prophets."
I would encourage us all to press into these summer months and let the Lord speak to you and guide you in this new season for the Church Body.
I'll leave you with this exciting exhortation from Katie Barker of Australia:
Over the last week, I have heard the Lord repeatedly say, "June Jump-Start." Many in the Body of Christ are going to experience a "jump-start" of their dreams, callings, assignments and hearts in the coming month. These are going to be given a sudden shock of life and I heard the Lord say that His people will be "jumping with joy" at the end of June after the jump-start they receive from Him.

"A June Jump-Start! Your Dreams, Callings, Assignments and Heart"
Over the last week, I have heard the Lord repeatedly say, "June Jump-Start." Many in the Body of Christ are going to experience a "jump-start" of their dreams, callings, assignments and hearts in the coming month. These are going to be given a sudden shock of life and I heard the Lord say that His people will be "jumping with joy" at the end of June after the jump-start they receive from Him.
In the Merriam Webster dictionary "jump-start" is defined as:
"The Lord was showing me that there will be people from all points in their journey who will receive a jump-start in their calling and destiny. "
• To impart fresh or renewed energy to something
• To start or restart something rapidly or forcefully
When I prayed and spent time with the Lord, I saw Jesus holding defibrillators used to deliver a dose of electrical current to the heart and cause it to return to normal rhythm. I saw Jesus place the defibrillator pads on people's chests as well as their situations, and a huge power surge was delivered to the person.
The fire of the Spirit was falling on people's hearts, dreams, callings and assignments. The fire of the Spirit was sending new energy to these things to start them suddenly and with power. In an instant these things were given what they needed in order for them to be ignited and activated.
Provision and Perspective Will Come
I then heard the Lord say, "With the jump-start, provision and perspective will come." I saw that as people experienced a jump-start they were being given heavenly perspective and strategies from Heaven on the way forward. Where people had experienced lack of vision and clarity on the way forward and had been waiting on God for direction, they now had the sight they needed.
This perspective was coming in some cases by way of encounters with God, visions or dreams. They were also given provision for the area that had been activated and energized in their lives. Provision was coming to people in the way of divine connections, alliances, resources, spiritual gifts and finances that were needed, depending on the area in their life that the Lord had jump-started.

"Lord, direct me throughout my journey so I can experience Your plans for my life. Reveal the life-paths that are pleasing to You. Escort me along the way; take me by the hand and teach me. For You are the God of my increasing salvation; I have wrapped my heart into Yours!" (Psalm 25:4-5 TPT)
"I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen that abundant riches of glory revealed to me through the Anointed One, Jesus Christ!" (Philippians 4:19 TPT)
"God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything – every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do." (2 Corinthians 9:8 TPT)
Jump-Starting Hearts, Dreams and Assignments
I saw some people had their hearts jump-started. These were people who had hope deferred and were feeling stagnant and felt their future was unclear. Waves and waves of God's love were released over them and they were changed by the love of God for them. They received revelation on their value to God and the value of their destiny. With this their hope was renewed and peace filled their heart.
"Many in the Body of Christ are going to experience a "jump-start" of their dreams, callings, assignments and hearts in the coming month."
"Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in Him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!" (Romans 15:13 TPT)
I saw others had their dreams jump-started. These people had dreams they knew were from the Lord and they had been waiting on God for His timing, strategy and provision to bring them to pass. In some cases these dreams had laid dormant for many years. The Lord blew new life on these dreams. They were given greater revelation and details on the dreams and they saw the Lord bring divine provision to take a step towards them.
"We have become His poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny He has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny, and the good works we would do to fulfill it!" (Ephesians 2:10 TPT)
Still others had assignments jump-started. God had been positioning, refining and preparing them in the past season and now they were ready to step into these new assignments. In some cases the people had multiple assignments the Lord had prepared for them. The Lord had aligned everything for this time. (Photo via Flickr)
These assignments were given a sudden shock of life. The people of God were given new spiritual sight on the assignment and divine strategies to step into them. Divine opportunities and connections were being presented to the people. There was no need for striving as the Lord was aligning the path before them. As they stepped out in faith and on the leading of the Spirit, their every need was provided.
In some cases with the jump-start the Spirit was also releasing new spiritual gifts or an increase in their gift as the people stepped into the new assignments given to them. There was an upgrade and increase occurring in the gifts on people's lives and their area of influence for the Kingdom was expanding.
Jump-Start Your Calling and Ministry
Lastly, the Lord showed me a vision of cars on a road which I knew represented His people who were to receive this jump-start in their callings and ministry. I saw some cars were stationary and their engines were turned off; their cars were not going, and these represented people with ministries that had yet to begin.
Other cars were stationary but had their engines running which represented people who were ready and waiting for the Lord to commission them to go. Other cars were running and were moving but they were not running smoothly and were chugging along. These represented people who were on the path of their destiny and were moving in their area of ministry but they had experienced setbacks, delays and hindrances.
Still other cars were moving smoothly and running well which represented people who were flowing in the plan and purpose the Lord had for them. The Lord was showing me that there will be people from all points in their journey who will receive a jump-start in their calling and destiny. As the cars received a jump-start I saw the cars become supercharged, overhauled and upgraded. They looked like they were ready to race! The Lord is saying that He is going to ignite people's callings and ministries and is taking them to a new level.
Be encouraged! The Lord is going to jump-start people's hearts, dreams, assignments and ministries. With the jump-start, heavenly perspective and strategies will be given along with provision in the form of divine connections, alliances, resources, spiritual gifts and finances. You will experience such joy as you are aligned with Him and walk into the divine plan the Lord has for you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
