SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
I see you. I know all that you are, all that you think, and all that you do. You might be able to hide from the people around you, but you cannot hide from Me. And, I honor those whose hearts desire to know Me by releasing righteousness, peace, and joy. I look to bless and prosper those who have a genuine relationship with Me, says the Lord.
Romans 14:17 …the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
God is going to give you wisdom and deeper understanding into people around you. Doug Addison
AN INVITATION FROM THE LORD INTO SEASON DEFINITION AND RE-DEFINITION
By Lana Vawser
The Lord has been speaking to me lately about SEASON DEFINITION. SO much is changing right now, there is rapid acceleration happening and things are shifting and moving. The Lord is releasing so much insight and revelation for the new season upon us and for 2018 and it is a very exciting time to be alive.
Recently I had a vision and I saw Jesus inviting the body of Christ “back to the drawing board”.
The Lord was inviting His people “back to the drawing board” with Him to RE-DEFINE, RE-CONFIRM, and DEFINE the season that He has His people in.
The Lord is wanting to DEFINE and REDEFINE the season so His people know what He is calling them to, what He is saying, what it looks like and the strategy for this season.
There is a temptation to “fight against the season you are in” because you haven’t had the DEFINITION of the season from the heart of God.
There is SO much transition and acceleration happening right now, and I felt the invitation strongly from the Lord to CONTINUE to go back to Him and to be asking Him what the strategy and blueprint looks like for this season. The Lord showed me many that have had a real unsettling in their spirit and part of it is the transition of change and acceleration, but the Lord showed me as the blueprint fell upon His people, PEACE came in the transition.
In receiving His blueprint for your season, His definition, I saw it becoming an even stronger anchor point so that when other things come to redefine your season, you will stay true to the definition the Lord has given you.
In the defining of the season from the heart of the Lord, I saw SO MUCH abundance, SO MUCH fruit, SO MUCH favour and SO MUCH JOY!!!!!!
Don’t fear the shifting, the re-definition of your season and the new definition of His blueprints, I felt an anxiety within many “It looks so different, will I miss out” but I saw Jesus in this vision smiling and He said, “Yes, it looks completely different, there is a great RE-DEFINING and NEW DEFINITION but it is leading you to INCREASE. The test in this season is will you remain TRUE to what I have CALLED YOU TO and My definition of the season upon you? I am leading you into a new land full of milk and honey, abundance and full of REFRESHING, but you must trust My definition and My way.”
IN THE DEFINITION AND RE-DEFINITION YOU WILL FIND A NEW PLACE OF REST TO RUN
The Lord showed me that in the DEFINITION and RE-DEFINING of seasons that He is leading His people into a new place of rest. There will be a deeper place of settledness and rest in His vision and definition of the season that will not only bring great joy and remove anxiety, it will bring an empowering and strengthening of the VISION to RUN with the vision He releases.
I heard His whisper, “It’s a new place of REST TO RUN”
“Come back to the drawing board”
I encourage you today, to go back to the drawing board with Jesus. There are encounters awaiting you where the Lord will re-confirm, re-define and define the season that you are in and the new season that is being entered into. Stay true to what the Lord has called you to, even if it looks different to what you expected. Know that HIS definition of your season will lead you into a place of greater increase, rest, empowerment and joy.
December 7, 2017. Take some time for yourself. You aren’t realizing you are spending time on everything and everyone except you. It’s good to spend time on you. Yes, I know you know it is good to spend time on others. Spending time on others gives you meaning in living. But also let spending time on you give you meaning. You are loving Me with all your heart, but I want you to love yourself also. This is My command.
Matthew 22:37-40 (MSG) “Jesus said, ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.” Bev Robinson
December 7, 2017. I know about the encounters you are having with sadness. At times, you wonder when the cloudy gloom will dissipate. Your sorrow is as real as the nose on your face. You seem a bit astonished that hardly anyone has noticed your condition. Regardless of how others respond, know that I am here for you. Place your hand in Mine and let Me make My lovingkindness evident to you. Let Me turn your anguish into joy.
Psalm 30:11-12 (NASB) “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, that my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” Kevin Robinson
December 7, 2017. There is happiness and peace to be found when you live life according to My ways. I have moved on your heart to bring you closer to Me than you have ever been before. There is much more I want to teach you. Do not stray from My ways; do not neglect Me. Aim your sight to Me; I want to teach you more about Me. Allow Me to increase your love and understanding of Me.
Proverbs 7:1-3 (NASB) “My son, keep My words and treasure My commandments within you. Keep My commandments and live, And My teaching as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart.” Jonas Bohlin
