You Are Walking Into Your Finest Hour
July 6, 2018
This is a word I have been feeling in my spirit for those who are navigating a season of transition and transformation. God keeps impressing in my heart the process of metamorphosis a caterpillar undergoes while becoming a butterfly. During this time, most of the caterpillar’s cells must die first so that new types of cells can begin to be formed and it can be reborn as a butterfly. There comes a point during metamorphosis, where it looks neither like a caterpillar nor a butterfly and, if we were to look at it without knowing what it was, very likely we might not know what it has been nor what it is about to become. This is why sometimes in the process of transition/transformation people feel like they don’t know whether they are coming or going, where they fit in and they can’t see the end from the beginning…but “Take heart!” Says the Lord. Just as it does when the caterpillar finally takes up the butterfly form, the whole glorious picture will come together!
I pray this speaks encouragement and confirmation to someone today.
THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.”~Isaiah 12:2-3 (NIV)
“Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”~Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV)
The Lord says,
“There is a ‘cheering up’, there’s a joy deep inside of you that I want you to begin to look into. For, I am leading you to walk in that place of awareness of My Joy that is already yours to have and grab a hold of it. I want you to begin today to understand that the Joy of the Lord is your strength and you don't need to find it outwardly. You don’t need to find it on anything on this earth. I live and abide on the inside of you, My Child, and that means even when and no matter what comes against you, because in Me you live and move and have your being, My Joy is already yours to reach down deep inside and grab a hold of and this is the thing I want to teach you how to grab a hold of and live and enjoy for it is already yours! It is Christ-in-you the Hope of Glory who gives you the way, the Joy, the Strength, the Power, the Life and the Truth, because I am the Truth, the Way and the Life! No matter if you fall, no matter if you’re scared, no matter if you go through tribulation or even come to a place where get some negative news—it doesn't matter, for you have this as a certain joy that if I am for you who or what can be against you! And, this is your season to understand the fullness of the joy and the benefits I have afforded you and it is your time to KNOW really know deep in your heart that I am going before you and I am going to begin to correct, fix and also push you into a new place of your life!”
AN OLD WAY OF LIFE IS DYING AS YOU AWAKEN INTO THE NEW
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].”~2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)
“There is a new beginning coming on the horizon for you. It seems as if there is a heavy weight there in certain areas of your life. And this is why you’ve felt up and you’ve felt down and you’ve there are things that are not really working, moving or budging the way you thought or hoped they would anymore. When you get to some of these things that seem to be shutting down, know that it’s because this season I am going to begin to cause you to do a new work in Me. Don't be afraid! Don't be alarmed! Because that is what happens when things begin to get into a cocoon state to slowly but radically change to shift into the butterfly of the new. See, there’s a major changing of the guard happening with you this season—a major shifting in many areas of your life: in gifts, in relationships, associations and in situations. There are things that need to move on and get on, so you can move on and get on to the place of your promise. Watch and see that even some of the same gifts that once operated in you are going to go dormant for a while as new gifts begin to come to the surface. And as new gifts come out in you, walk in a state of awareness to know what is heightened in you now versus what is no longer heightened. And as you do you will walk in this season in victory and you will see the favor of the Lord fall upon you. For, as your giftings come alive you will see that, like flies to honey, those things, people and situations that will help fulfill the call and the purpose of your new season and those who need the new wine of solutions and the wisdom that will pouring out from you from Heaven will be drawn into your life.!”
I AM DRAWING YOU CLOSER AND ALIGNING YOU WITH MY HEART AND THE RHYTHM OF MY HEART AND MY KINGDOM
“You [believers], like living stones, are [b]being built up into a spiritual house for a holy and dedicated priesthood”~1 Peter 2:5a (AMP)
“I am processing some things in you right now. Any time a new season, a new birthing come into play, I am removing you of the spiritual stage you’ve been on to begin to plant you into a new season, into a new stage, into a new state of being. I am drawing you deeper into Me, aligning your heart, your spirit to beat in synchrony with My Heart and the purposes of My Kingdom for this new season. Which means: don’t despair! Anytime you feel like you are drawing closer to Me then, guess what? Good news! It’s not a time to be down. It’s a time to rejoice to know that He who began a good work in you is more than able to finish it. Everything that does not look too pretty or is lacking in hope and definition and vibrancy right now is shifting around and transforming for your good as all things are turning around for your good! See, I am giving you a new platform, because there are greater gifts coming out in you. There is greater strength, greater anointing and a greater call in you. The maturity in you, the wisdom in you, the mind-of-Christ in you are crystallizing and building up like a symphony within you and are going to begin to open things up for you and begin to reveal things increasingly more and more from the mature perspective of Heaven. There is My Life and My Resurrection power in the atmosphere of your life injecting new growth and life in the places where the old is giving way to the new and God and the good things are giving way to the powerful, empowering God things I have prepared for you. Child, regardless, of appearances, this is not the day in which all became stagnant. It’s not the end of the road for you. There are things that are falling away because their season has come to an end. Like a rocket launching off, there are things in your life that were meant to take you to certain height, but now you are ready to explode into new heights and that is why they seem to be falling away. And while there are things that seem to be not budging the way you thought, God says: you’re about to see things progress like never before! Something is just about to explode all over you, in you and even around you. I am getting you prepared for the answer to your long-standing prayers. You are on the brink of seeing some heart desires you have been praying for to come into fruition in your life. So press on and rejoice!”
YOU ARE WALKING INTO YOUR FINEST HOUR
“And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.”~2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMP)
I want you today to begin to realize that this is your finest hour. When something becomes stagnant, when something is taken away from you must realize that just means I am revving you up for something new. So, don’t mourn for the dead! Don’t mourn for the things that are not budging and moving! But rejoice knowing there is strength coming for you and there is a new vision, new substance, new life awaiting you on the other side of the door to the new season I have placed before you! Remember, that my mercies are new every morning and the joy of the Lord will begin to rise in you. For truly, I am birthing in you something refreshing and new like you have never known before. So know that in this season something is about to bust open in you and you are about to see the finest of who you are. The good days are long gone, but the better days are about to come upon you! Get ready for better days, because I am strengthening you like never before and you are about to see greater things than you have seen before! Gifts that have been dormant are awakening. Some gifts and some things that worked yesterday will go into dormancy because there are new gifts beginning to emerge and beginning to awaken in you. And as they begin to awaken guess what? You are going higher. You are going from glory to glory! Don’t look at this day as if it were a bad day or as the day in which things came to a halt and stopped progressing. Don’t look at this day as the day in which doors closed and you came to the end of the road. This is not a bad season. You may not see things moving a budging the way you thought or the way you thought they should, but you are about to see things progress like never before. It’s literally as if something was about to explode in you, over you and even around you. I tell you that I am getting you prepared for something that you have been long praying for. There are life-changing events, people and situations coming into your life and desires I have placed in your heart are about to come to fruition in your life! You are entering the door into the glorious new place I have for you this season! You are entering into the better God-things I have prepared for you, so rejoice, My Child, and again I say, rejoice!” says the Lord.
