In this month and season, God is setting His people free to walk in full authority. He is revealing a revelation of His unending love for us and transforming us into His image. As we focus on His presence, He's giving us fresh vision and focus for our dreams. Take time to pause and allow God to give you the keys you need in this season; He is positioning you to soar!
"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." (John 8:36)
As a child of God, it's important to know who God calls you to be and how He sees you. The more you are able to realize who God has made you to be, the more you can fully walk in the freedom and the authority that He's intended for you to have. You are His beloved child. When you can truly rest in that fact, you will be able to more fully step into all that He created you to be.
All authority comes from God, and you have been given authority through Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). Jesus modeled what it looks like to live free. He submitted to His Father alone, and yet exhibited His Father's heart to everyone that He met. He was the embodiment of love, truth, grace, and hope.
Jesus didn't fit neatly inside the walls created by man or religion. He came to break the bounds of both, and in doing so, He set us all free. Yet so many still do not know who He created them to be, or what it means to live free. God is reminding His people of the authority that we have access to through Jesus. He is calling you higher, to walk in all that Jesus paid for through His death. Identities are being solidified at an expedited rate.
This word is for those of you who long to be free, who are hungry to walk in the fullness of your identity in Christ. If you are passionate to know who you are in Christ Jesus, this word is for you!
Ask God to highlight any areas of your life where you are not walking in the fullness of your identity. Jesus lived unapologetically in His calling and identity, and He's calling you to do the same! Don't be afraid to step out and be seen fully for who you are, even if you don't fit in perfectly with those around you. It's time to walk in freedom and authenticity.
"So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God's love. I'm convinced that His love will triumph over death, life's troubles, fallen angels or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken His love. There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God's passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!" (Romans 8:38-39)
Being fully known and loved by God for who we are has the profound ability to transform lives. Having said YES to Jesus, we can rest in the truth of knowing that absolutely nothing can separate us from His love for us.
It can be easy to become focused on the negative forces at work, especially when evil seems to be triumphing. We can focus on our lack, on the trials that come against us, on our circumstances (instead of God's Word), or on the places of evil in the world. OR we can choose a different perspective. We can fix our eyes on the Creator of Heaven and Earth, the One who sits on the throne, and remember that He is still God. We can rest in knowing that there is nothing that exists or that will ever exist that can separate us from God's love for us. No choice that we make, no demonic force, nothing above or below and nothing now or in the future can keep God's love and goodness from us. (Photo via Unsplash)
When we are able to rest, knowing that we are loved by the King of kings—the Lord of lords—our trials and challenges shrink in comparison, and we are able to endure. He is a good Father and, through everything, He seeks to cause us to grow, becoming stronger and more like Him. When we allow this to happen, His love transforms us; it softens our hearts, and it challenges our circumstances.
Nothing can change His love for us—which means we are radically loved, just as we are. We may attempt to build walls around our hearts to keep Him out, or keep a stack of medals to prove our value to Him...but God loves without our accomplishments and in spite of our failings. Like it or not, we are naked, raw and vulnerable before the God of the universe, and still, even in our mess, He chooses us. "We love Him, because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19). We are His dearly loved children, and allowing this truth into our hearts will change us.
God is reminding us that we are HIS. He paid the costly price of sending His only Son to die so that we might know His love forever and truly live. The greatest debt has been paid for YOU, and His love is the reward. You are worthy; you are known; you are loved—just as you are.
This word is for those of you who have been struggling. You may not be feeling seen, known, valued or championed. If you have been feeling beaten down by life's struggles, and you have lost sight of Whose you are, then this word is for you. Ask God to reveal His love to you afresh. Spend time in His presence and allow His love to permeate the fatigue, sickness, disillusionment, or apathy that has crept in. Seek His face and invite His presence into your being, allowing His love to transform you.
Positioned to Soar
"But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer." (Luke 5:16)
God is shifting the things in many people's lives to align with what they were made for. This is a season of pulling back from all the things that wear you down. It's a time of shifting your focus to be aligned with where the Lord is leading you. Some of you may feel a course correction, and it could be sudden. You've noticed that the path you thought you were on is changing. This change will bring with it more time to accomplish what is needed. The time will allow you to focus on what is truly important (like time with family and friends) and prepare for where God is calling you.
There is an intensity of focus in this season that will allow more to be accomplished in less time. God may make a way for some to quit their jobs so they can truly focus on what He's placed on their hearts. Others will find (if they are obedient to what God is speaking to them) that they are able to carve time out of their lives to focus on what is truly important to them. If God is shifting things in your life to make more time and space for what He's doing, pay attention and do your part. This is a sacred time. Be sure to commit this time to God and He will meet you.
God is positioning His people to soar. He is leading some into a season of focused time away from the busyness of life. Just as Jesus withdrew from people to be alone with God and pray, so too will many feel a call to spend time in the presence of God. This time will allow you to focus on what's really important so that you can make progress in intentionally launching into your purpose and dreams.
This word is for those of you who have felt bogged down by the rat race of life. You may feel like it is impossible for you to ever be able to pursue the dreams that God has placed in your heart. If you haven't known how to make the necessary changes in your life to have more time, God will show you. Pay attention to how God is leading you. There will be quiet invitations to get away with Him. For some, it will look like a more intentional posture of rest; for others, it will look like a posture of gaining momentum.
Often God leads His people into quietness and rest before He launches them into their next assignment. If God is asking you to slow down, know that it's on purpose.
Keys of Revelation
"Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures." (Luke 24:45)
"I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven." (Matthew 16:19) (Photo via Rawpixel)
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." (Matthew 5:6)
During this time, God is releasing keys of revelation, understanding and authority to those who are spiritually hungry. Those that humble themselves and seek out more of the Kingdom on the earth—who seek righteousness—will unlock understanding of Scripture. As you open the Word to know Him more, your eyes will be opened to see in a new way.
With this fresh understanding, God is releasing authority to those who have proven themselves worthy. God is shining a light on evil and corruption, and this light will expose the depravity and calloused hearts of those doing wrong. At the same time, He is increasing revelation and understanding through dreams, visions and supernatural knowledge.
God is releasing these keys to those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, because purity of heart shows Him who can be trusted with more authority. There is a shaking and an exposure that is coming, and the dividing line will be righteousness. The purity of those seeking righteousness sets them apart.
There is a line being drawn in the spirit, and it is time to choose a side. Will you partner with Heaven's agenda or your own? Will you be a part of the Kingdom of Heaven on the earth during this time, or will you oppose it?
The choices before you may be subtle, even hidden. No one else may know the options you have. Humble yourself during this time and seek His face. As you attune yourself to Heaven, His righteous plan will become known. Pay attention to what God is showing you, for keys are being released. These are keys that will bring breakthrough, momentum, unprecedented access and favor. The warriors who arise during this time will show tremendous courage while being anchored to the heart of their Father, showing His gentleness, mercy and compassion.
God's promises are true and He is faithful. God is releasing keys, revelation and authority to those that are pursuing righteousness in all things. He is exposing darkness and corruption, and those who have the keys will triumph over injustice.
This word is for those of you who are fed up with corruption, injustice and evil. You seek out ways to bring righteousness to the forefront, and serve the One in front of you. As you spend time with the Lord, pay attention to the revelation that He is releasing during this time. Watch for open doors and favor as you step out in faith with what He is showing you.
1. God has set me free; therefore, I'm free indeed!
2. I am at rest, knowing I'm fully loved by God!
3. As God leads me to His heart, I am refocusing on the dreams He's given me.
4. God is giving me keys of revelation and authority.
5. God is positioning me to soar above every obstacle!
