New Year, New Season – A word by Carlie Anstis
New Year, New Season
I am doing a new things in the next season of your life. As the year comes to an end, the upcoming year is going to be filled with hope, joy, blessings, healing, strength, courage, miracles, and so much more!
Blessings upon Blessings!!
“The Lord replied, “Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it” Habakkuk 1:5
‘For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19
Don’t Forget My Faithfulness
As this season is coming to an end. Don’t forget My faithfulness. My promises still stand and I do not go back on My word. I know things haven’t been easy. There have been hardships, loss, pain, suffering. But I have come to give life and life to the fullest. I understand what you are going through. Don’t lose sight of Me. I know there have been things getting in the way of what I have called for you to do and traps set by the enemy to try to eliminate what I have in store for you. But the truth is, he already lost. He has no authority over you. There are things going on behind the scenes that are working in your favor.
‘My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.’ James (Jacob) 1:2-4 TPT
Understanding of the Lesson
This next year, will bless you and encourage you. It will take all that you have learned during this season and show you things that you never thought were possible outside of Me. I am the God of wonders after all. Anything is possible in My name. Remember whose you are and that I am not finished with you. I am the perfecter of your faith.
“looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 ESV
My Glory Will Be Revealed!
There is going to be a revival. My glory will be revealed and there will be no other explanation other than Me. Healing in the mind, body and spirit. Supernatural healings. Strength to move forward and to not let your past define you. For I am The One who defines you. You are fully and deeply loved. My love is not fully known by you because you can’t fully grasp how much I love you. But My love fully knows you. There will be courage where you fear what’s next and what the future holds. There will be courage to take a step in faith and do something out of your comfort zone. There will be freedom where you didn’t think it was even remotely possible. There will be joy in the morning. There will be joy that makes you want to dance and joy that can’t be explained. There will be blessings beyond your imagination. Blessings that will draw My children to Me. Everything that I have been teaching you and showing you will make sense in the next season of your life. When all these things happen in the next season. Don’t forget The One who called them into existence. When you see a miracle, remember I’m The One who spoke it.
“These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:11 ESV
“Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” Psalm 4:7 ESV
Oh My Love For You!
For those who feel as though they are not good enough for Me and that they are too far gone for Me to save them. Remember, no matter what you’ve done and no matter how insignificant you may feel. I love you and you can’t even imagine how deep and wide My love is for you. Because of My Son, you are forgiven, set free, made whole, released from your bondage, and saved. No matter what you have done, past, present, and future. You are forgiven. My blood has set you free. I have paid the price so that you could be with Me in eternity. You are never too far gone or out of reach. I am omnipresent. I am everywhere, including in you.
Even though the enemy wants to distract you and wants you to not be productive. This will be the most productive season in your life. The enemy’s assignment is to distract you from doing things. You will need to fight for ground. When you ask, what ground do we need to fight for? My answer will be, “The ground I am giving you.” So, fuel up. Prioritize your time with Me and be intentional on what you spend your time on. The enemy is going to try to distract you and try to get you to run on an empty tank. But in order for you to be the most productive. You need to be fueled up and filled with Me. There are going to be many new doors and opportunities coming. But listen to My voice when I tell you to draw away or no. You will be asked to spend time with Me and to prioritize your time. It is for your good. Do not fear missed opportunities and doors closing. I have better in store for you. You need to gain perspective of My heart, wisdom and perspective.
“Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions.” Proverbs 4:25 TPT
“I am saying this for your own good, not to put a restraint on you, but for what is proper, but rather to promote effective and consistent service to the Lord without distraction.” 1 Corinthians 7:35 CEB
A New Harvest is Approaching
There will be a great harvest approaching in great speeds. There is an acceleration on the plans and harvest coming. But the enemy is going to desperately try to distract you and try to get you to prioritize your “to do lists”, and deadlines. But a way to defeat that assignment. Pray for clarity. Pray for vision and clearness of the blueprints I have for what is coming. It may feel like you are swimming against the current. But remember there is a plan and a purpose. I never do things without intention. I am an intentional God.
“Our God blessed the earth with a wonderful harvest!” Psalm 67:6 CEV
Justice Will Be Served
In the next season, justice will be served. Served to the enemy for what he has done. Ten fold. He will not get away with what he has done. The promises that have been blocked from your sight, the oppression that you have been feeling when it comes to seeing My promises. The shame and guilt that the enemy has been using over My children to make them feel ashamed and deemed unworthy. Is going to break off. There will be freedom. I know there is great opposition in areas of your life. But I am breaking them off. The enemy uses shame and guilt as his greatest tools to stop you from moving forward. I am bringing healing to those parts of you that feel pain, discouragement, shame, heartache and more. There will be restoration of your hearts, minds, and spirits. I know there are things that don’t make sense right now. But don’t try to ‘make sense’ of it yourself. I am working things out for your good and My glory. There is going to be a divine partnership with Me. I want you to see My power, My authority, and My strength. But I also want you to see that I have given you authority in Me to use My Word and strategies that I have given you to break loose of the chains that are binding you. Matters are being settled in your favor, My child. Don’t forget that. Hold fast to My love and My presence. Even when you don’t feel or see Me; remember that I will never leave you and that you are Mine. I am like the air you breathe but greater. Even when you can’t see it you know its there. I am faithful. I love you.
“Mighty king who loves justice, you established fairness, justice and righteousness in Ya’akov.” Psalm 99:4 CJB (Ya’akov means God contends, to fight)
“Though you have not seen Him, you love Him. Though you do not now see Him, you believe in Him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory” 1 Peter 1:8 ESV
There is A Shift in the Atmosphere
There’s something breaking in the atmosphere because I am here. Can’t you hear it? My glory resounding beyond the Heavens. There is a great push back right now. But this is where you don’t give up. You fight back. Hard. Harder than than you ever have before. There is territory and ground that I am giving you and you need to receive it. But the enemy is pushing hard because he knows once you push past this. It’s all over.
That doesn’t mean that nothing will happen in the future. But it means harvest and blessings are coming. Let it pour out. Let the blessings flow. There is an awakening that I am stirring up within you. This is where you dig deeper into My presence. Deeper and further than you’ve ever gone. Deeper than others would dare to go. But it’s not about what or how far others go. It’s about you and I. Our relationship. Things are shifting. But one thing remains. And that’s Me.
I’m never changing. Omnipotent and Holy. the Almighty God. Ever Present. And Righteous In Power. But humble in heart and a full of grace and compassion. There are many sides of Me that are going to be revealed to the world. And there will be no denying that it is not Me. There are going to be fires within The Church being fueled and started. There will be cleansing and power restored to My Bride.
Are you ready?…My presence is awaiting you, come close and quench your thirst for Me and your hunger in My presence. You will never go hungry or thirsty again. There is so much coming! Are you ready?! My love is the only invitation you need. It beckons you here, with Me.
Will you accept My invitation?
