Never Underestimate the Seed of Encouragement

Keep declaring, decreeing and proclaiming the words and visions God gives you over their lives

Posted on

Some of you have been standing faithfully in the gap for others, whether they’re backslidden or there’s a raging battle going on over their soul.  You have been faithful but it seems in the natural the total opposite of your prayer is happening. Don’t lose heart and don’t give up!

Keep standing, keep encouraging them when you feel led to, keep sharing God’s words or visions to them and if you have no clue where they are, keep declaring, decreeing, and proclaiming the words and visions God gives you over their lives.

I saw a very barren ground and it has been barren for decades, no form of life to be found, no hope, no joy, no light nothing whichever side I looked it was just dry and barren. A place where the enemy of the soul had done it’s destructive work for so long it has become void of everything and just left alone to totally whiter away and die

But then I saw, felt, sensed, heard, and smelled a shift taking place in that barren land that everyone had forgotten and given up on; IT STARTED TO BLOOM! All those seeds of encouragement started to grow and bloom supernaturally cause I didn’t hear, see or smell any water coming but out of the super dry cracked barren ground the seeds started to burst forth and bloom.

As I kept looking I was stunned of the immense beauty and I could feel life, hope, beauty, light, joy entering that barren place but also the persistence, the tenacity, the faithfulness, the compassion, the tears and love that have been sown into those seeds while you’re standing as you’ve been groaning, travailing, giving birth to with Jesus and sweet Holy Spirit in this battle over souls. Everything that barren place had been void of for so many decades started to seep back in as it supernaturally began to bloom

The vision went beyond the surface, far beyond where all those tiny seeds were sowed and landed in deep dark barren soil and for years absolutely nothing seemed to happen. But every time a word of encouragement was spoken, a decree was made, the truth was proclaimed, hope and life were declared or tears were shed, those tiny seeds were nurtured until the appointed time, for them to bloom

I know some of you have been standing for what feels like forever for a family member, loved one, friend, colleague, neighbor,  government leader, for a or celebrity. Please DO NOT give up your stand for them for a mighty shift is about to take place; THAT BARREN DESERT WILL BLOOM SUPERNATURALLY!


“The wilderness and the dry land will be glad; The Arabah (desert) will shout in exultation and blossom Like the autumn crocus. It will blossom abundantly And rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, The majesty of [Mount] Carmel and [the plain] of Sharon. They will see the glory of the LORD, The majesty and splendor of our God. Encourage the exhausted, and make staggering knees firm.”
Isaiah 35: 1-3 AMP
