Declaring into the Year!!!

6704BECE-120E-4E16-8C9D-8AD6540B25D5

Lord, You are ALREADY ahead of us! You have already gone before us and You are ALREADY far into this year. You have already declared how the year is going to go, so we partner with Your Word and with Your declaration over 2019 and the years to come!

We declare not only that this is the day that the Lord has made and we rejoice in it, but this is the year that the Lord has made and we commit to rejoice in it. We are rooted and grounded in the love of God and the eyes of our understanding are opened to truly see Him. We have a sound mind, we are stable in our emotions, and we abide in Him. Every area in us that is not surrendered to the Lord, submits and surrenders to Him, NOW, so that we hear His voice clearly and we are continually filled with His plans, His intentions, and His promises for our lives. We see the goodness of the Lord and we are surrounded with His favor like a shield. We are surrounded about with an army of angels that protect, guard, and defend us. No harm comes to us or to our families.

Our marriages are rejuvenated, refreshed, whole and bear good fruit. Our husbands seek God continually and stand strong as the spiritual leaders of our homes. We, who are wives, surrender to God and submit to our anointing as helpers, nurturers, and spiritual deliverers of our husband’s dreams, purposes, and Godly plans. We, who are single, experience the depths of God’s love and intimacy while we are in waiting. As singles, desiring marriage, our husbands hearts are knit to our hearts, even NOW, and they hear the voice of God to be drawn to find us…as wives.  As singles, content in singleness, we experience peace that passes all understanding in our relationship solely with HIM!

All of our children are taught of the Lord and GREAT will be their peace. Our families that are broken and lost will be repaired, rescued, and saved. Our broken hearts will be mended and our souls will be filled with joy. We are blessed with trusting relationships and partnerships that help us advance the Kingdom of God! We have spiritual and natural seeds to plant into this year, because He gives seeds to the sower. We will see good ground that we are to spiritually plant and naturally plant into this year, and these seeds will spring up and bear good fruit. We will experience increase spiritually that will manifest naturally. We will walk continually in the plans and intentions of God. We will experience new encounters with God and depths of intimacy with Him that we have never known. His reach in us will expand our reach to others. 2019 is a year that is ALREADY set and ALREADY blessed by God. We expect it, we receive it, we declare it, and we establish it in Jesus Name!

Happy New Year!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says “There is a time for EVERYTHING, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”

Since the beginning of creation, God has determined there would be times and seasons. Just as our natural selves can recognize a season change from summer to autumn, so our spiritual selves must be able to recognize and  understand the change of seasons and times in the spiritual  realm. It is God’s heart desire that we recognize our spiritual seasons and times, so that we can be in time with Him, be in sync with Him, and move in rhythm and in pace with Him. Our degree of frustration with the station of life that we are currently in is decreased when we have an understanding of our time…His time! 

Is it your time to build, is it your time to tear down, is it your time to grow in dependence on God, is it your time to absorb, is it your time to be released, is it your time to hide in His presence, is it your time to address your inner trauma, is it your time to put in order what is out of order, is it your time of unremarkable blessing, is your time to let go of what is familiar, is it your time to embrace the new that’s next? Ask God to reveal the specific time that you are currently in. Recognizing your time will help you move through this season with peace, focus, strength, faith, strategy, and determination. What time are you in? May your inner barometer sense your time!!!

A few months ago, my spiritual mother (Victoria Bates) shared an instruction the Lord gave her for this season in her life. It was just one word, with one syllable, that holds so much weight and power….”GO”! As I focus my mind, this one instruction is being echoed in my spirit and I can’t help but be ignited! Just GO! Go forward, not back. Just GO! Don’t stay stuck in the same place, doing the same thing. Just GO! Uproot the old roots and experience His freshness and newness. Just GO! Get up from stagnation, Get up from being unproductive, Get up from stunted growth, Get up from I would have, could have, should have, if only I had. Just GO! Towards the vision He gave you. Just GO! Towards your passion and calling. Just GO! Towards what you always hoped. Just GO! Towards what you dreamed. Just GO! Say yes, not NO and Just GO! Just GO! JUST GO!

“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way…I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” (‭Philippians‬ ‭3‬:‭12-14‬ MSG)

Prophetically declare that you are in the last leg of this particular season that you’re in. What does a coach tell the last runner in a relay race?

“Keep the momentum, pick up speed, don’t drop that baton, keep your eyes focused on the finish line, and run with endurance until you get to that finish line”! What is your finish line? Whatever your finish line is, pause…open your eyes and see it…really see it! Your finish line is right in front of you. So, don’t give in to tiredness, push past it! When a runner gets tired in a race, what does the coach tell them? Push past your tiredness. You see that finish line. Be determined to run with all the resilience and endurance that God has given you until you break through that finish line.

This is the one of the greatest races of your life. See yourself crossing that finish line, winning that medal and see the people God has been assigned to you, including me, cheering you on!!!  #livingempowered #runyourrace #youalreadywin

“The race is not given to the swift, nor is the battle given to the strong, but it’s given to the one who can endure to the end”. (Ecclesiastes 9:11)
