Your Sound is Moving You Forward – A Word By Cheryl Jenkins

Cheryl Jenkins Link To Cheryl's Page On Facebook   A few weeks ago, my husband and I were on a trip with another couple, friends of ours. The wife kept making a strange sound with her mouth that was escaping involuntarily. She couldn’t understand why she kept making the sound, and neither could her husband. It would just come out of her. He said he could always find her in the store and he jokingly referred to it as her “mating call”. Fast forward about 3 weeks later and I noticed after a few days I was making a strange noise too; a different one, but also involuntarily. It just came out of me without my even thinking about it. I thought it strange and didn’t connect it to my friends, until… this last week as I was walking around our local Christian bookstore, I heard a woman begin to do a similar thing. At that point I began to ask the Lord, “What are these noises bursting forth from us into the atmosphere and what are you saying?” He immediately reminded me of a teaching I had done a couple weeks prior at church, regarding the Hebrew year of 5780 we have moved into, the year of the mouth. In this sermon, I had been teaching on the fact that sound creates movement and in this season our sound, or the words of our mouth would create our forward movement. This is a season we need to decree what...

Here Comes Your Second Wind! – A Word by Lana Vawser

Lana Vawser View Bio LanaVawser.com   This week I heard the Lord say "Here comes your second wind". SECOND WIND DEFINITION: A second wind is a burst of energy after being tired or out of breath. (vocabulary.com) SYNONYMS: energy burst, refreshment, rejuvenation, renaissance, restored energy, restored strength, second energy burst (thesaurus.com) When the Lord spoke these words I knew He was speaking over those who are weary. Those who feel like they have run out of breath. Those who feel like they are tired in the fighting and contending. Friends, I want to encourage you today that the wind of the Spirit is beginning to blow over you and your second wind is coming. The Spirit of God is going to bring forth such refreshment, rejuvenation, strength and restored energy into your life. Those areas that have wearied you, those circumstances that have left you feeling like you are running out of breath, hold on because everything is about to change. The power of God is going to come crashing into your life in such an unprecedented way that you will be completely restored in the divine reset of the Lord. I heard the Holy Spirit say: "You will remember the weariness no more!!" Wait on the Lord in expectant faith right now. Keep your eyes above, lift your eyes to the hills for where does your help come from? It comes from the Maker of Heaven and Earth (Psalm 121) I heard the Lord say: "Many are going to...

You Are in the Final Stages…Push! – A Word by Angie Stolba

Angie Stolba View Bio angiestolba.com “Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the Lord. “Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God. | Isaiah 66:9 I believe the Lord is saying, “Beloved, do not despise the tension and discomfort that you’re currently feeling. Truly you are in the final stages; you are almost ready to birth your prophetic promises.” As I continued listening to the heart of the Lord, I heard Him say that, “The very tension and discomfort you are feeling is similar to that of a woman about to give birth.” I was then reminded of the laboring process that a mother experiences. Right before a baby is born in the natural, the mother feels like she has nothing left to give; she believes she cannot possibly continue to push due to sheer exhaustion. However, often in that moment, she is only one push away from delivering her baby. Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world (John 16:21). Even as we are told and Isaiah 66:9, The Lord will not bring you to the point of birth and not bring you to delivery. He is faithful! This is a crucial moment in time, and it’s imperative that you do not give up the good fight. The enemy would love nothing...

3 Reasons God Is Going to Turn It Around – A Word by Judy Jacobs

Judy Jacobs View Bio JudyJacobs.com   There is a great song written by anointed writer, Derrick Thomas, that I have sung many times on the TBN Network. The song is entitled, “God said He would Turn it Around.” I love to minister this song because of the message. The lyrics promise that God can change a situation in a person’s life. And today, I want to give you three reasons why God is going to turn the situation around in your life that YOU are going through. The first thing that needs to be established is the “it” that we are talking about. What is the thing–the “it”–that you need God to turn around in your life? Before you can assess the revelation of why God is going to turn it around, you must first identify the “it” that you are up against. Now what you need to know is, with God, it really doesn’t matter what you may be facing: It doesn’t matter how big or how small your situation may seem to you. It doesn’t matter what people have said. It doesn’t matter what people have not said.The most important thing is to see your situation turn around, so you must have faith. FAITH IS DEFINITELY REQUIRED!The Bible clearly declares: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). Faith is the vehicle...

Winning Season – A Word by Joe Joe Dawson

Joe Joe Dawson View Bio joejoedawson.net   This is your winning season! Often we can talk ourselves out of walking in the favor and blessing that God intends for us to have. A wrong mindset will hold you back from winning in life. I’ve seen different people walk through the same hard situations because they have allowed their mind to keep them in a negative cycle. As a son or daughter of God, you were called to win in every season. In every season, I want to be successful in manifesting everything God calls me to do. I never allow a limiting mindset to hold me back from success! The reason God gives each of us a prophetic destiny is because He needs for us to manifest His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. We can try to avoid completing the process because of fear or insecurity but unless we decide to win in like we will not accomplish our purpose and destiny. Winners do not allow others to talk them out of anything God has said about them or what they can do with God! I believe that each of us have the opportunity to win in life we just have to be determined to fight the good fight of faith in every area. Don’t allow past failures to keep you from getting up and try again. View yourself as a winner and don’t let failure have the last word! You have the power of the Holy...

Unorthodox Favor – A Word by Westley Roderick

Westley Roderick View Bio westleyroderick.com   The other day the Lord spoke to me and said that it is time to receive unorthodox favor. This will be favor from a different sphere of influence unlike what you are already involved with or familiar with. This will display God’s goodness in your life and it will be revealed as His working in your life. Since this will be outside of your common area of success or influence it will not be done by your efforts or hands but through the Spirit of the Lord. "So he answered and said to me: 'This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit," says the Lord of hosts. "Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of Grace, grace to it!"'" (Zechariah 4:6-7) Grace, grace will come to that mountain and the Lord will put it beneath you! I see favor in governmental houses. The Lord will open these doors to some of you and you will just walk right in. You won’t be at the head of the table, however, the Lord will give the words to speak at the right moment and it will establish you....

I Heard The Lord Ask “Who Told You That?” – A Word by Lana Vawser

Lana Vawser View Bio LanaVawser.com   Recently I heard the Lord asking a question to the body of Christ "Who told you that?". When He asked the question it felt piercing, it felt like the Spirit of God was "exposing" lies and expectations that many of God's people were living under that had not been spoken by the Lord. Suddenly I began to see the Spirit of God shining His light upon areas in the lives of God's people where they were living under 'expectation of man', limitations and words spoken over them that did not come from His heart. I heard the Holy Spirit say "Where My people are living under the expectations and pressures of man they find no ease" The sense of "suffocation" surrounded me. The sense of "not being able to breath deeply" and a place void of joy but filled with burden and pressure filled the atmosphere. This feeling of pressure was different to the pressure of the season of transition and a place of contending. This pressure screamed that the life and joy had been sucked out. When the Spirit of God took me higher in this vision I saw that these places of suffocation were happening in the walking out of certain "strategies". "What's expected of me", "How something is meant to look", "What I am supposed to be doing dictated by others" etc. The Lord spoke again "In this new era there is a greater rest and ease in the anointing upon...

The Doors Marked With Elevation And Promotion Are Now Opening Up Before You! – A Word by Lorilei Cooley

Lorilei Cooley View Bio lorileicooley.com   The Lord is disrupting and breaking the things that have gone against His word, His way and what He has desired to come pass. He is breaking systems and the things that are contrary to what He is speaking and to His word. He is clearing the way and smoothing things out. You are moving into all the things that the Lord has prepared for you. I also felt that there are some doors that are going to open up for you before the end of this year that only the Lord Himself could have done for you. Where these doors that are opening up will be drenched in such favor and increased provision of God. These doors that are opening up will be marked with 'elevation and promotion.' For He is about to send you into places and connect you with those that are like-minded and carry His heart. These doors will also usher in vindication and honor into your life. You will walk in these doors full of His glory, full of His power and with the fragrance of Jesus upon you. You will see His goodness and kindness in such radical ways as He demonstrates who He is in your life as He moves you into this time where you will see the real fulfillment of His promises in your life. Isaiah 22:22 "I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one...
