While spending time with the Lord and asking him what was on his heart for the coming month, I saw footprints appear on the ground. These steps made a trail that stretched from January into February.
I heard the Lord say that the work he started in January is going to continue into February. It’s been a hard month for many of us and we’ve looked around wondering where the evidence is that God’s moving at all.
Some of us have finally seen the fruit of what we’re called to do but there are others who feel just as lost as ever. It’s important for the latter group to know that God has been tilling and preparing the ground you’re standing on even if you can’t see it, even when it seems like nothing is happening.
I sense the Lord wants you to know that it’s not going to take starting from scratch in order to see the desires of your heart become a reality. You don’t have to start over! The solution is coming as God continues the work he’s already started. He’s asking you to be patient with him as he fills the next season with all of the abundance he has planned for you.
Don’t abandon hope and resist the urge to change directions out of fear or despair. When you don’t know what to do, wait even longer and rest in the knowledge that he hasn’t led you to destruction. Experience the security of his love as strong arms wrap around you, holding you tight. He hasn’t forgotten about you and if you can find that place of loving rest while gripping the courage to wait, you’ll see the shift in the next month.
A Calm Is Coming
The Lord is releasing a ‘calm’ over many who feel like they’ve just come out of a storm. You might be tempted to think that this is a calm before another storm but it’s not. It’s just a calm.
Try not to busy you mind with what’s coming next and just relax in the peace he’s pouring into you. The next few weeks isn’t a time to find more things to do. Instead, reacquaint yourself with his rest.
The Lemons Are Sweet
I’m trying to stay away from the old “Lemons to Lemonade” cliché but it is what it is. This is what the Lord showed me.
I saw a lemonade stand and I heard the Lord say that the lemons you received in the previous month, the things that made you purse your lips and scrunch your face, are going to be made sweet.
I noticed Jesus adding sugar to your circumstances and the end result is going to be far greater (and taste much sweeter) than you thought possible.
Treasure is Being Released
I saw angels with shovels scooping up treasure from the storehouses of heaven and releasing it over the earth. Some of you have been waiting for a financial breakthrough in order to pursue the dreams and visions God has placed on your heart. I sense that over the next month, you’re going to see the answers come.
Do not let discouragement cause you to give up on your dreams. The solution is coming in creative ways.
Flashlights Shining Bright
I saw the Lord holding a flashlight and he was illuminating areas of our hearts that still need to be dealt with. It reminded me of my friend, Al Mack, who wrote many times at the end of last year that the hidden things are going to be exposed.
But this isn’t an illumination for all to see. God is not out to bring embarrassment or shame. He simply wants us to walk in all he has for us and many times we struggle to reach the Promised Land because of latent issues in our hearts.
Over the next month, some of us will find the solutions as God illuminates our hearts. Don’t run from the light of his love but pursue it. Allow him to gently and tenderly show you how to be more whole than you might be now. Be vigilant against the spirit of offense and keep your heart open to the soft nudges of the Holy Spirit.
Let your heart and mind be challenged because he wants to lead you into deeper revelation. Don’t run and hide; deal with the muck.
A New Song Is Being Released
I saw butterflies carrying songs, notes from heaven that filled the sky. Some were picked off by predators but the majority got through and flooded the atmosphere.
This is a new wave of music – A new song with a different sound. It holds the power to transform hearts quickly and leads those listening into powerful encounters with God’s love.
As I watched this picture unfold, the Lord brought to my mind the words of a well-known worship leader who prophesied about a year ago that music was going to change. He said that a new sound was going to come out of heaven and those who had ears to hear would pick it up and steward it.
I believe that over the next month, some of you are going to catch the new sound. God has been stirring the creativity inside of you and you’re a vessel ready to be filled. Be bold, ready to venture out into unknown territories of artistry, ready to be a trailblazer.
