A divine refreshing is sweeping upon God’s people. This refreshing invigorates, motivates, and rejuvenates the body and soul. Strongholds are being loosed and coming down. The lion of Judah is roaring over His people with love. Eyes have been tired from seeing battles and war within yourself, your home, your job, and various ongoing attacks in the physical body and it seems to not relent. I see the Lord pouring out a bowl of refreshing waters upon His sons and daughters. It is like having sand upon your feet and a wave in the ocean rolls in and washes it away. Your mourning will turn into dancing, says the Lord!
You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, Psalms 30:11 AMP
Return us to You, O Lord, so that we may be restored; Renew our days as of old, Lamentations 5:21 AMP
Boldness and Confidence:
I see boldness coming upon the people like never before. I sense people have stood back because they did not feel confident in themselves, but Holy Spirit is strengthening the people to stand up, declare righteousness, release words, edify, exhort, comfort, evangelize, and walk in extreme boldness throughout whatever the Lord has for you to do. It is zeal and passion that will ignite the hearts to run fervently to the Father! Boldness and confidence will fill God’s people so strongly. Shy and timidness are breaking off the body. A Great movement is commencing in the earth; therefore great boldness, confidence, and strength are needed.
He continued to proclaim to all the truths of God’s kingdom realm, teaching them about the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, speaking triumphantly and without any restriction. Acts 28:31 TPT
I see crowns and swords lying before the altar. I see men and women coming to pick them up. Identity is being restored to those who have felt it was stripped away. The enemy came in and knocked many down creating weariness, confusion, and havoc. No longer will you stay in the back looking upon the crown and sword, but you will pick yours up again. You will understand your identity in Christ. You will walk in courageousness and truth. Many people who have been under religious leaders are breaking free and coming to know their true identity in Christ. They will be battle-axes of the Lord. For God will use the least likely. The ones that others cast away. He will use them mightily and they will demonstrate the Kingdom of God.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.1 Peter 2:9 ESV
Order is being brought in the house of the Lord. For the things that have been swept under the rug will be exposed. Many have been given time to repent. And as the days have gone by greed and corruption have billowed out of these places. The Lord is not pleased with the foul smell of idolatry, complacency, and greed. Just as this order and judgment is coming many will turn their hearts back to the Father, yet some will attempt to withstand it all and continue on with their idolatrous ways. Only those truly built upon the rock will stand and the others will be washed out with the sand. Let us reflect on Luke 6:48-49, “he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”
God’s Presence and Worship:
A new and fresh sound is coming out of worship. Adoration for the Lord, a pouring out of self to be filled with the presence of God. I see the presence of the Lord resting upon places that invite Him in. He is moving in the midst of the people with miraculous signs and wonders so that His name is Glorified on earth. No man will take credit, it will be authentic voices of the Lord that usher in the presence of the living God. Worship and praise will fill the atmosphere breaking chains and delivering the people. True worship where the Presence of our King is. Worship that lifts the name of Jesus above all. His name is greatly to be praised!! Many hearts will be healed and restored during this time!
But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. John 4:23
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:24 ESV
Many times prayers consist of self: I can’t do anything right, why me, Lord fix it, do it, mend it, move them, move me, I’m mad at you God, I’m mad at my life, I need my wife to change, I need my husband to change, I need you God to do it all…and the list goes on with hundreds of other words spoken out on the basis of self need, I want, and me..me…me.
It’s not even about us…
I see believers who do not worship God for who He is. They worship their circumstances and magnify their problems. They literally began to quench the Holy Spirit by constantly looking within themselves in their own strength, own head knowledge, and emotional dispositions. They are everywhere emotionally and not being grounded in God; who is our Rock and Strong Tower.
Worship God who protects you and fortifies your mind with truth.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
As believers, we can not continue to magnify and “agree” with present problems, hardships, circumstances, dilemmas, and perceived outcomes that do not align with the Word of God. We lose focus on what God is showing us, teaching us, growing us, or delivering us. One must see that circumstances lead to maturity but people do not take hold of this. Instead, they fall into a pit of despair and blame God for their issues.
Worship is the catalyst to your breakthroughs. We are to worship the Lord God for WHO HE IS and not simply what you are asking him to do. This in itself is a wrong heart motive. A pure heart motive– loves the Lord, reverences the Lord, and brings Honor to God through obedience. They worship Him in spirit and in truth.
I encourage those who are facing things to pause and begin to thank God, praise His Holy Name, and worship the One who wonderfully made you! God did not put you in situations to teach you a lesson or inflict pain on purpose! Bubble burst– No, God is sovereign and the giver of all good things to us. Will He use situations and turn them for our good, of course, He will, we should be thankful He does.
It is how people look at their circumstances. Will you praise God in the rain or complain that you are soaking wet? These are two very different reflections of the heart. Which will you do? Get in His presence and sit at His feet. You will see your situations really are not what you think they are. Because you will see past it. Get out of agreement with the enemy and let the Lord heal you while you enter His courts with praise and thanksgiving. You will begin to see your situations change because you shifted your focus on God and not circumstances.
I declare all obstacles, hindrances, and distractions are broken off your life in Jesus’ name.
I declare the things that held you down no longer chain you, but that your breakthroughs are flowing out of your worship and adoration of God!
I decree a divine turnaround as you position your heart towards heaven!
Through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Psalm 95:2-7
