A SEPTEMBER OF HARVEST – A Word by Nate Johnston
Being the first of September today I wanted to be intentional about just thanking him for the month ahead. During the day I felt an excitement stirring in me, it was literally that nervous kind of hopeful expectation, like a child on Christmas Eve, or a bride before her wedding.
Then tonight the moment I lay down to worship I began to smell the most amazing smell of fruit. It was crisp and fresh and to be honest I looked around first before concluding that heaven just decided to drop in so I could smell it’s orchards. It got stronger and stronger before it began to change and smell fermented.
The Lord instantly said to me “first fruits” and I gave him one of those looks like “very clever God!” but he so simply showed me something key for this month.
This is a month of firsts, embarking on new adventures, new direction, new ministries, new businesses, and new innovations. The momentum around this month is off the charts as he catapults people into strategic roles and positions they only dreamt of in seasons past.
In Australia we have just entered into Spring where everything begins to open up and flower. And in that same way I prophesy it is your time to bloom and Spring forward into what God has for you.

This will be a month of much fruit, but I feel the warning is on stewarding it. Many have been used to stewarding lack for so long that the moment blessing arrives it’s a messy game of catch up to know how to handle it..
The fermented smell spoke to me that our fruit can go off if we don’t steward and know how to manage it. Just like a farmer of oranges who plants and waters his trees then is suddenly unprepared when oranges begin to fall. Prepare your heart. Also in the natural, what disciplines, infrastructure needs to be put in place to handle the harvest you are about to reap?
Steward this month well, steward the growth in your heart and life well, steward his favour well and this will be a September to remember!

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
