IT’S TIME TO RESPOND- A Word by Helen Cobanov
Invitations are being released and “IT’S TIME TO RESPOND”! These words have been sitting strong on my heart, as the Lord continued to speak to me about this season we are coming into. This is a season of partnering, moving and RESPONDING! The Lord says “It’s time for My people to respond to the invitations I place before them. It’s time to wake up, get up and respond to these”.
The Lord then showed me a vision of Him standing before people. In His hands are invitations. Then I heard the words “WHO WILL RESPOND? WHO WILL COME”? Some of these invitations are big and some are small, but each one holds great responsibility and is KEY to seeing His plans established in this world.
I noticed that the Lord was not putting these invitations directly into hands, but He was standing before people and INVITING them to COME TO HIM, to RESPOND to the call. He is NOT looking for the most qualified, the most holy or worthy! NO! He is looking for those who are WILLING, for those who are HUNGRY, for those who are prepared to say “YES LORD, I ACCEPT! I’M ALL IN”!
HAND IN HAND
Then, I saw people coming forward to take hold of these invitations. But the Lord didn’t let go of the invitations, He held them firmly in His hand. Instead He reached out His other hand and said, “HAND IN HAND, WE WILL DO THIS TOGETHER”. I felt a weight and power in these words. As people responded and took hold of His hand, I saw an acceleration and increase blow over them, lift them and move them into even greater things than they could imagine.
I saw people responding to small invitations, and increase starting to pour out upon them as they suddenly became aware of even greater invitations before them. A fire in their hearts grew, faith started to rise up and their passion to partner with the Lord to see His plans established, became the very beat of their hearts.
“For the Lord God is one, and so are we, for we share in one faith, one baptism, and one Father. And He is the perfect Father who leads us all, works through us all, and lives in us all! Eph 4:5-6 TPT
YOU ARE MY PIONEERS
Then I saw the word PIONEERING stamped into the ground, and I saw a young baby who was learning to walk, standing before this word. The Lord again stood with an invitation in His hand before this baby and He was calling out, just like a parent does to encourage their baby to take their first steps. “You can do it, come to Me, take My hand”.
The Lord started to speak to me about this and He said “You are My PIONEERS and I am inviting you into something NEW! New territory, new levels of authority and influence, new things you have never done before. This will require you to take your first steps again and take hold of My hand. It’s time to lay down the things of the past, the old and familiar ways of doing things won’t work where I am leading you. My pioneers will need to take hold of My hand as we take this new ground. We will do this together, I will give you all that you need! I will lift you to new heights, I just need your YES!”

YOUR RESPONSE WILL RELEASE THE CHAINS
I saw many who have felt held back and even bound, breaking free from the chains as they RESPONDED to these invitations. Many who have wanted so desperately to respond in the past, but never felt they could take that step, because of timing, doubts or circumstances around them. But the Lord is saying “Freedom is yours, fix your eyes on Me and COME. Don’t give me your excuses as to why you can’t, because I am the Lord who will work all things together for good and My timing is perfect”.
Then I saw a fire igniting in hearts as they stepped forward to respond. They broke free of the chains that held them back and I saw the word FREEDOM burning like a fire in their hearts. I saw mindsets freed, tongues released, arms reaching to the heavens in praise and feet running towards Jesus.
We are being invited into an incredible season of divine opportunities! It really is a season of “who dares wins”!! But in order for God to use us in a powerful way, we must be willing to get over ourselves, our insecurities, our doubts and fears. We must silence the lies of the enemy, that we are not ready, not good enough, not worthy or qualified and we must RESPOND! The plans of the Lord WILL be established with or without us! And these invitations are FOR YOU!! “who….me”?? You say…. YES YOU!!
The Lord is calling out saying “Who wants it? Who will come? Who can I send”? It is time to respond. It’s time to run to Him, run into His arms!! It’s time to seek His face, His will, His way!! And from that place He will guide us and lead us!! We need to respond to His invitations!! They are in His hand and they have the timing, the details and all the things we need to know, we just have to say YES and come to Him!!
“Respond My Bride!! Awaken and respond!! I am inviting you into greater things, I will take you by the hand and lead you there; we will do it together.”
“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father!” John 14:12 TPTHelen Cobanov
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.

The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
