This Is The Time For Giants To Fall – A Word by Daneen Bottler

Daneen Bottler View Bio tyanddaneenbottler.com Often the threat of possible pain or being extremely uncomfortable seems to have more clout in holding us back than the actuality of facing the very thing we are fearing. The moment we choose to trust the Lord is the moment we begin to advance. We will face our giants and run down our foes like the Lord has promised, when we come to the place that causes us to take our eyes off ourselves and reposition them back on Jesus, believing and knowing that His name, His blood and His power are greater than what is trying to intimidate. No more hesitation, no more delay! Instead of stepping back from the fray, we must trust in the Lord and step in. We must know that we aren’t fighting to win because the enemy has already been defeated, but instead we must understand that we are enforcing what was already won for us by Jesus on the cross. For in Jesus Christ we are MORE than conquerors and as we press deeper into him, our giants have no choice but to fall and bow to His name. It is only by Him and through Him that we advance and extend into the land of our inheritance. I prophesy over you in Jesus name, that as you fix your gaze on The Lord and trust Him with your whole heart; as you step into the fray and advance trusting in His strength and power, the giants...

Don’t Doubt! Don’t Give Up! – A Word by Helen Cobanov

Helen Cobanov View Bio hislighttower.com I really want to encourage those who have been feeling overwhelmed with DOUBTS, DESPAIR and the feeling of GIVING UP. The Lord has been speaking so strongly to me saying “DON’T DOUBT! DON’T GIVE UP! I HAVEN’T given up on you, so DON’T give up on Me.” These words have struck right to my heart and mind as this has been a very real battle indeed that I too have found myself in over the past few months. I felt the Lord wanting me to share this, to encourage many who are wrestling and battling these feelings right now. You are not alone! He has you! Don’t give up! Don’t doubt! “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do no be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deut 31:8 NIV DON’T TAKE THE BAIT I saw a vision of the enemy with a fishing line, fishing in deep dark waters. I asked the Lord about this and He said “the enemy is “fishing” for anything he can find, in a desperate attempt to bait you and pull you mentally, physically or emotionally back into things in your past. But I am here to remind you that TODAY IS A NEW DAY! Don’t default to the things of the past. Don’t take the bait!” “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up;...

The Year Of “Re’s” – He’ll Do It Again – A Word by Dionne White

Dionne White View Bio theartoffreedombook.com   THE YEAR OF “RE’S”   This is going to be a year of “RE’S”... meaning God is going to DO IT AGAIN and AGAIN. God has been highlighting the pre-fix “re” to me.    Last night I tossed and turned as I saw in my sleep big billboards of solid bright colors and on them were one word.    The first billboard had the word was REESTABLISH.    The next sign in a different color said RESTORE.    And the last sign in a different color said REVIVE.    REESTABLISH • RESTORE • REVIVE   I kept seeing them over and over and they flashed before me almost like I was driving by them quickly on the highway. They even looked like a bold post on a Facebook wall with a bright red, blue or purple background and white letters. I heard the words repeatedly:    • REESTABLISH  • RESTORE • REVIVE   This was confirming of other words He has already given me leading up to 2020.    I awoke and prayed into them and ask the Lord to tell me how and where this was going to happen.    First I will say the beautiful thing is that THIS, THESE WORDS, ARE THE ESSENCE OF GOD’S HEART (read Isaiah 61). And it is already established this way Heaven so we just have to cooperate and pray it to come to earth.    DIVINE RESET The Lord spoke a word of 2020 Reset...

Year of Advancement – A Word by Rev. Melissa Pearce

Rev. Melissa Pearce View Bio enduringhopeministries.com In preparation for 2020, I heard this phrase from the Lord, “Great Awakening.”  I have heard this term before, but I was inquisitive as to what it meant then, and how it pertains to the now.  As I inquired of the Lord, I heard that there will be a great awakening this upcoming year.  However, this great awakening will not only pertain to revive unbelievers, but also to awaken believers’ hearts a new depth of maturity in Him.  As each heart is awakened from her sleep and slumber, the year of advancement will be before God’s people. In order to advance, the body of Christ will need to abide from a place of deep intimacy with the Lord, as well as to operate in her authority.  Jesus gives us the first key to advancement – Abiding. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me (NKJV- John 15:4).  There is an abiding that Jesus desires from us.  He longs for our attention to be fixed upon Him.  There are too many things vying for our attention.  There are some opportunities and/or assignments that are good, or appear to be good, but in the end, they are distractions to keep you from pursuing where God is leading you.  When we focus on Him, He gives us direction, counsel and peace.  As we abide in Him,...

The Power Of A Grandmother’s Prayers – A Word by Bill Yount

Bill Yount View Bio billyount.com   Paul writes to Timothy..."When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.  And I know that same faith continues strong in you."  2 Timothy 1:5 (KJV)   I sense the Father saying, "I am downloading the faith of grandmothers not only into their children, but unleashing a major downloading of their faith into the third generation--their grandchildren!" I was recently reading "This Day We Fight!" by Francis Frangipane and wondered how he was drawn to the Lord like many of us in the early '70's when there seemed to be no corporate prayer from pastors or churches praying for an outpouring upon young people. Upon asking the Lord what activated this major move of the Spirit, the Lord responded to Francis, "I heard the cries of a million praying mothers crying out to Me for their children, across all denominations!"   A Mother's Prayers Are Powerful, But Oh, The Power Of A Grandmother's Prayers   You have probably heard it said that parents are the "law" and grandparents are "grace." I believe perhaps grandparents, especially grandmas, may have an edge of prayer-power to influence their grandchildren because: "Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?" Job 12:12 (NIV)   Many grandparents are raising their grandchildren because of broken marriages today. In spite of these tragedies, I sense...

A Season of Rest, Refreshing, and Restoration – A Word by Angie Stolba

Angie Stolba   View Bio   angiestolba.com   "Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?" | Song of Songs 8:5 There has been a shift in both the spiritual and natural realm, as we have entered into this new year and new season. Many have been hard-pressed on every side, feeling as though they’ve barely survived 2019. Even so, take heart! You have prevailed, and the Lord is now rewarding the faithfulness and endurance you’ve demonstrated in your previous season.   I believe the Lord is saying, “Well done, My good and faithful servant! A season of reward is upon you. You will now experience My rest, refreshing, and restoration. I am not only going to restore in one area of your life, but in all areas where the enemy had sought to steal, kill, and destroy. I am the God who is able to redeem the time and the years, and I will restore that which the locust has eaten (Joel 2:25). You will know unspeakable joy and full glory; you will feel a new spring in your step and a new song on your lips!”   He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him (Psalm 40:3).   “Rejoice! Again, I say, rejoice! Not only did you survive, but you will now know what it means to truly thrive.

Are You Facing Resistance Crossing Over? This Is Your Breaker Month Not Your Breaking! – A Word by Nate Johnston

Nate Johnston View Bio nateandchristy.co  I have a word specifically for those who have come into 2020 feeling intense resistance and still needing some major things to shift and move into position, for doors to open, and for breakthrough to come especially in 11th-hour situations.  AWAKE, AWAKE, SHAKE OFF THE DUST! A few days ago I felt a heaviness people were feeling. It was a spiritual assignment of lethargy, weariness, and even burnout from the past season. People have crossed over, eager to experience the new God has for them but are just straight up too tired to fight and battle anymore and after already facing some significant setbacks and obstacles have been feeling defeated and some like they are headed for breakdown.  The Lord asked me to prophesy through Isaiah 52:1-2; “Beautiful Zion, put on your majestic strength! Put on your glory garments! Arise and shake-off your dust! Break off your shackles of bondage from your neck!” (Paraphrased) Then I heard the Lord say “This is not their breaking month, this is their breaker month!” So I prophesy that over you right now – the weariness must lift off you right now and you are going to feel new strength come upon you! Jesus your breaker has gone before you to clear the road in this new season!  “The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the LORD at...

New Breakthrough Strategies for 2020 Revealed – A Word by Doug Addison

Doug Addison View Bio DougAddison.com Do you feel like there’s something more for you in life, but you’re not sure what it is or how to figure it out? Or maybe you feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward. Don’t worry, God has not forgotten all about you. These are all symptoms that you need a breakthrough in your life! Here are a few breakthrough strategies to help you start 2020 on the right track. Develop a Breakthrough Lifestyle It’s one thing to make goals and write them down on paper, it’s a different thing entirely to actually follow through! Breakthrough isn’t something that only happens once—it’s a lifestyle! Put your outdoor work in order and get your fields ready; after that, build your house. Proverbs 24:27 NIV Do small things towards your big dreams on a daily basis. Working on the small things is what helps you handle the big things when they come! Change the Spiritual Atmosphere Around You The spiritual atmosphere you’re living in on a daily basis can have a major effect on your spiritual, emotional and physical health. For instance, if you’re operating under a negative spiritual atmosphere, you might notice you feel sick more often or have trouble controlling your thoughts. “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”  3 John 1:2 NIV “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’...

The Lord Is Resetting You In 2020 – A Word by Madeline James

Madeline James View Bio nabispen.com During the last week of 2019, the Lord dropped the word reset in my spirit. I didn’t think much of it at first, but as time went on the word reset began to pull at me. I saw in the spirit this big red button that had the word R-E-S-E-T spelled on it, and this hand hitting the button. So I began to seek the Lord to hear what he was saying about “reset.” Reset can be defined as to set again, adjust, fix in a new or different way, to become set again (dictionary.com). When I read the definition of reset, I heard the Lord say He’s resetting his people in 2020. This reset word is not to be taken as another cliche’ word. He’s resetting His people back to divine purpose, intent, and destiny. 2019 and really the past few years have been an attempt by the enemy to disconnect us and get us out of alignment with the divine purposes and destiny. Ephesians 2:10 TPT says, “We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!” I want to encourage you whatever 2019 looked like, God has planned your destiny and the good works you will do. Whatever took place in 2019 doesn’t...
