Voice & Vision

“And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one LANGUAGE; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have IMAGINED they can do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis‬ ‭11‬:‭6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬)

The Bible mentions two instances where the people of God joined together in agreement according to one vision and in unity of voice. When these two principles were combined, the impossible became possible.

First in the Old Testament, Noah’s offspring tried to build a tower to fulfill their ungodly desires. Because they were of one purpose, in one place, and one language, nothing could stop them but God Himself. And He did. God confused their language and displaced the people. (see Genesis 11). No communication and no contact = Defeat.

Later in the New Testament, Jesus’ disciples gathered in one place (the Upper Room) and for one purpose (to wait). In this moment, God unified their language and purpose with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2). ONE Voice + ONE Vision = VICTORY!

Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37), or for Jesus’ followers, as we learn to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit and seek a common kingdom vision.

Which impossible situations and circumstances in your life might change if you began to speak in agreement with others and envisioned the expected outcome together? Be encouraged and challenged today!

Believing is Seeing

In the world, it’s common to hear the phrase, “Seeing is believing”, but in the Kingdom of God, many things can appear upside-down. Jesus told us the last shall be first, the weak will be strong, the sad will receive joy, and the lonely will become families. We are promised that those who have not seen but believe anyway will be blessed (John 20:29). Jesus explains that if we believe, first, we will then see the glory of God (John 11:40). What exactly is the glory of God? It’s the manifested excellence, power, majesty and presence of God. Wow! Who wouldn’t want to see that?  So as believers, we can say, “Believing is seeing”.

The secret to seeing such goodness and faithfulness of God on display in our lives is to adopt a visionary lifestyle that can visualize a victory before it happens; A mindset that can visualize already receiving what was prayed for; The spiritual foresight that can envision already having the promises of God.  

Faith is the first requirement before we are able to see anything.  Hebrews 11:1 gives us a nice definition of faith:  

“Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we  cannot see (Hebrews 11:1 GW).” 

 Faith is not based on human sight but on our spiritual insight (of knowing who God is) and the foresight to see into the future. This is why Paul reminded the Church to live by faith and not by sight (II Corinthians 5:7). 

Faith requires us to look beyond what we see with our physical eyes because faith is visionary. Moses, Abraham, David, and Paul were all visionaries. They had the ability to envision all that God promised long before it came to pass. They were able to look forward in faith because they knew God would deliver on His promises. 

How can we increase our faith to behold a future we have yet to see? The New Testament tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word. As we increase our intake of God’s Word, described as seed, it will grow in our spirits and produce a harvest.

Align with the Divine

This March 28th, there is a rare planetary alignment happening! This will occur only seven times this millennium. Jesus told us to be aware of the signs in the heavens, so my spirit leaped when I read about this in the news.

So, what exactly is a planetary alignment? It’s when a several planets gather closely on one side of the sun at the same time. This month, five of the planets will align, which is considered a large alignment, as opposed to a mini or small alignment. This time, the planets Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and Mars will closely align with the sun. What does this mean spiritually? As I prayed with the Lord about this, the Holy Spirit revealed several important points that believers can apply to their lives.

Firstly, we are to align with God’s purpose and power. Remember what happened in Genesis when the people aligned with one another to build the tower of Babel? They were so powerful that they could have accomplished anything, if God hadn’t had to step in! What about the time the disciples gathered in the upper room in the books of Acts with one accord and one purpose? The Holy Spirit was released, and a new era of revelation and intimacy with God was ushered in! Both were instances of great power and breakthrough being released as the people aligned in their intentions and their desires. God is calling His body of believers to align their purposes to release divine power and glory in the Earth today.

Secondly, we are to align at a specific time. Just as the planets are gathering on one side of the sun at a specific time, so the Church is called to align on the side of the Son at specific times. Jesus prayed that His bride (the Church) would be united as one body. The Bible also tells us that there is blessing where there is unity. As we unite on one side, at one specific time, there will be a shift and a change. There are several instances in the scriptures where God used several people at the same, specific time to carry out His plan. God orchestrated the events of Ananias’ and Paul’s lives to work together at the same time. He also worked in the lives of Cornelius and Peter, at the same time, to reveal His plan of including the gentiles into His family.

Thirdly, just as the planets are in a specific position right now, so we are being positioned. Some of us are being positioned for promotion. Others are being positioned for provision. Such positioning is for our protection and our effectiveness. Just as in a school when there is a fire drill, the teachers will line the students up as they account for them for their safety and protection. Likewise, a car will get a wheel alignment or maximum tire efficiency and to ensure that vehicle travels straight. There are benefits to being in a specific position.

I’m not into astrology, but I felt led to look up the the symbolism behind the planets that are aligning. I quickly discovered that Jupiter symbolizes abundance and success. Mercury represents communication and intellect. Venus stands for love and beauty. Mars symbolizes energy and war. Uranus means change and innovation. God is calling us, as believers in Christ, to align our resources (Jupiter), our thinking (Mercury), our affection (Venus) and our energy (Mars) with the Kingdom of Heaven and His Son to release and receive breakthrough and change (Uranus). I can’t end a post with that word (ha, ha)! I pray that you align with the divine assignment, promotion, provision and connection at a the appointed time, in Jesus’ name.

Women & The Word

I discovered this scripture last summer, right before I started writing my first book. It says, “The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng” (Psalm 68:11). With tomorrow being International Women’s Day, I thought I would share some thoughts.

In context, King David is describing the ancient custom of women declaring victory over a battle that has been won. This would involve a parade welcoming the brave men home from the war. It was often accompanied with singing, dancing and the playing of music by the women. I love how it says that the Lord announces the word, and then the women take that word and announce it to others. This served as confirmation for me when I was still unsure if God wanted me to write. In fact, the Amplified Bible uses the word “publish” it its translation!

I have also been spending the last few months reading the Old Testament. Invariably, I feel quite sorry for the women of that era. They were treated as property to serve men’s needs and little else. I mean, poor Bathsheba, one day she’s taking a bubble bath and the next minute she finds herself being forced upon, and later pregnant. There are many such instances of abuse of in the Bible. I asked the Lord about it, and He reminded me that it wasn’t like that in the Garden; Eve was Adam’s helper. However, after the fall, the world was changed because of sin. That is, until Jesus came and restored mankind and womankind. In fact, the New Testament declares that there is no longer male and female, but we are all one in Christ Jesus (see Galatians 3:28).

I want to encourage you today. The Lord has music, songs, dances, and books that He is waiting for women to create! Don’t be afraid to release the word that God is announcing to you. Let the mighty throng arise and proclaim His word in power to reach a lost and broken world. Let us shout for joy as the battle has already been won! Amen, so be it, Lord.

How Long?

The other day I was reading in the book of Joshua, where Joshua asks several of the tribes of Israel “How long will you be slack, (or neglect to go) and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers has given you?” (See Joshua 18:3)

You see, only half of the tribes at that point had actually scoped out the land, chosen their parts, and established boundary lines of possession and inheritance.

The other half had grown slow, lazy, and nonchalant about inhabiting what the Lord had already given them.

I then heard the Lord asking, “How long? How long will you be slack? How long will you be slack to possess My promises and inhabit My inheritance? How long will you be slack to take your healing? How long will you be slack to live the abundant life My Son died for you to have? How long will you be slack? How long?” 

Unlike the slack tribes, the victorious Christian must be diligent (not slack) in fighting the fight of faith to possess the promises and inhabit the inheritance of the Father.

Unlike the physical fighting the Israelites had to endure, our warfare is spiritual, and takes place in the mind and thought-life of the believer. 

Too many believers have the idea that if something is God’s will for them to have, then it will just automatically happen without any effort or involvement on their part.

Not so, we have to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. We must believe what He says. We must resist doubt and fear. To walk in the fullness of blessing that God desires for us, and we must fight the good fight of faith.

Be a warrior-believer. Fight with your sword, which is the word of God. Stand your ground. Now. How long will you be slack?

Tearing Our Hearts

As many of you know, I often receive visions while I worship the Lord, especially when I am worshipping with a body of believers. Sunday was New Year’s Day, and I was blessed with the following prophetic vision that I wanted to share with you.

First, I saw the torn veil that had been hanging in the temple. Then, I saw veils being torn off of our physical eyes and our spiritual eyesight. Then, I saw the ceiling above us being open as Heaven came down. Then, I saw us tearing our clothes (as they did in the Bible) as we humbly surrendered to the Lord. Finally, I saw our hearts being torn open as they were enlarged for an increase in affection for the Lord. Immediately, I was reminded of the scripture that says “Don’t tear your clothing, but tear your hearts instead.” (Joel 2:13)

As I processed this vision later, I felt like the Lord wanted to remind us of several things as we go into the New Year:

1. We have access to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit at all times and wherever we are. Unlike the temple in the Old Testament, where only the priest could enter in on certain occasions, Jesus has torn open the veil of separation that used to lie between us and the Father. Jesus, as our High Priest has made us all priests unto God. Amen!

2. We are entering into a season of increased vision and revelation, as the Holy Spirit is taking off the blinders and scales that are trying to hide what God is showing us.

3. The Heavens are open and ready to flood us with more power, ability, might, and increase! We need to agree, on earth as it is in Heaven! Let Heaven invade our earthly atmosphere. Let us live here on the earth from our resting place of being seated above with Him.

4. The tearing of clothes in the biblical days was a sign of grief, anger, or holy zeal! Let the true worshippers arise with a holy zeal as we praise our holy God. Nothing else will do, we cannot contain what is bursting out!

5. God is a Restorer. We can tear our hearts before the Lord, as we worship, praise, adore, surrender, and repent before Him. When Joel told the people to tear their hearts, the result was a complete restoration by God Almighty. He still wants to restore us fully today.

Have a blessed 2023!

Joy To The World

It’s Christmas Carol season! I so enjoy hearing them on the radio stations and being sung at our church during the month of December. In fact, just yesterday, as we were singing “Joy to the World” I had a sweet moment with the Lord. 

You see, I was never raised in church or ever really heard of Jesus. I was, however, in the school choir as a young girl living in Wales. One Christmas, we were tasked with learning and singing several carols. Loving music and singing as I do, I wholeheartedly completed my assignment. 

I remember reading the words in the songs about Jesus’ humble entrance into this world, not fully understanding those lyrics but feeling love nevertheless. It was the first time I had ever heard the word of God. I fully believe that as I memorized and sang those words, I was planting spiritual seeds in my future. 

That’s when the Lord showed me that He had been seeking me my whole life, in little ways here and there. Like the song, Reckless Love reminds us, “There’s no shadow You won’t light up, mountain You won’t climb up, coming after me. There’s no wall You won’t kick down, lie You won’t tear down, coming after me!” 

Our God is so loving, and as our Shepherd He will leave the 99 to come find the one – us, you, me. Even when we don’t know Him or reject Him, He is relentless in His pursuit of us. After all, He is our Groom and we are His bride, so He comes after us as His love and delight. 

Now each year when I I sing Christmas carols, I will be remember how passionately and purposefully God pursued and rescued me. He truly is my joy in this world. 

How did God pursue you before you gave your heart to Him? If you haven’t yet surrendered to Him, what is holding you back? Jesus is strong and mighty, He’s not afraid to meet you where you are. Perhaps there is a carol deep in your heart too.

Hidden In Christ

I was awakened from a dream about an owl in a tree the other morning. As I lied awake recalling the dream, the Holy Spirit interpreted the dream. I was made aware of how many animals exist that are able to hide themselves within their natural environments. They are naturally able to do this because of the way they were created. You see, the Father created them to be able to blend in with their surroundings as a camouflage. In that way, they are able to abide and rest safely, protected from predators. What an amazing and creative God we serve!

However, with us, God had a different protection plan! Instead of humans having the ability to blend into their environments as the animals, we were actually created to find our protection by hiding in God Himself! He is our protection from the dangers of this world, and from the enemy.

In the Bible, we read that God is our hiding place and preserves us from trouble (Ps 32:7). He hides us in the shadow of His wings (Ps. 17:8). He hides us in the secret place (Ps. 27:5). God is a refuge for us (Ps. 61:3). We are hidden with Christ in God. (Col 3:3).

How wonderful, that our Father has created us to abide, rest and hide in Him alone. Won’t you spend a few minutes today hiding in God?

Steeping in the Spirit

I received another teapot vision during worship at church yesterday morning that I wanted to share. ☕️

We were all like teapots that were filled with hot water. As we steeped in the Holy Spirit, we became tastier and stronger. ?

The longer we steeped, the more flavor we had. We were then poured out into tea cups for others to drink. We were like soothing tea to the thirst of others. ?

I kept hearing the words “We are filled to be emptied again”. As we receive revelation and power from steeping in His presence, we are able to then go out and minister in His flavor, strength and power. ?

Pray with me: Oh Lord, I want to be so steeped in Your presence that I am poured out for You. ??

Closure & New Identity

I awoke this morning to the words CLOSURE and NEW IDENTITY.

For me, personally, that is a confirmation of my letting go of old endeavors and attitudes that were not helping me move forward. And it confirms a new beginning of ministry and writing.

What does it mean for you? Perhaps you are also supposed to bring an end to things in your life that you keep holding on to even though there is little grace to continue.

Maybe you are going from a disappointment to a reappointment and a new calling, a new anointing, or a new level in your walk.

Whatever it is, know that God is always moving, creating, and making a way when there seems to be no way. He is oftentimes closing one door and hoping you will go through another. ❤️
