God Is Moving You From Empty To Overflow – A Word by Dr. Candice Smithyman

Candice Smithyman View Bio candicesmithyman.com Are you feeling depleted and completely spent? Are you reading this and thinking, “I don’t have anything left to give. I’m done – emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially!” Today, you are in the right place for God to do a miracle!  God is shifting things in the heavenly realm, and He wants me to tell you that He is getting ready to do a supernatural miracle and fill your bucket! He wants to release the heavenly vats of oil, grain, wine, gold, silver and water on you. In 1 Kings 17, Elijah had been receiving supernatural provision at the brook God led him to, but the brook dried up. The supernatural feeding from the birds stopped. And God sent the prophet to a widow woman in Zarephath. God  told him that it was time to move on and this woman would sustain him. Now, I don’t know about you, but the average person would have been thinking, “Wow! Praise the Lord! This woman’s going to have everything I need!” From a natural standpoint, it would have made sense for her to be a millionaire heiress who was commissioned to take care of the prophet.  Elijah didn’t know the woman or how the provision would come, but he was a man of faith and obedience.  When he arrived at the widow’s home, the situation didn’t look very promising. The widow had nothing except a little oil and a little flour. She was preparing her last meal. Elijah asked the women to...

Prophetic Word: God wants you to trust Him for 2020 manifestations – A Word by Kathy DeGraw

Kathy DeGraw View Bio kathydegrawministries.org Trust Me is what I am hearing in the spiritual realm in this season. As I’ve been spending time resting in the Spirit of the Lord, I hear Him say, “Trust Me.” I recently polled my Facebook friends on what they were hearing from the Lord currently, and it was overwhelming the word, “Trust.” I love it when God sends forth a prophetic word and confirms it through His people throughout the earth. God wants you to trust Him. Specifically, He is saying to trust Him for 2020. Many of you have plans and purposes, dreams, and destinies to pursue and the Father is clearly saying, “Trust Me.” God does not want you to run ahead of His plan, and He does not want you to go into 2020 with anxiety and worry about how things will unfold. We can take authority in things, and when we do we might take authority over a situation that lasts for a while or has an immediate need. However, when we walk in dominion, we are owning the spiritual climate in which we walk and are exuding our authority at all times. God desires us not to simply trust Him for the moment, but to walk in a perpetual place of trust, a constant flow of assurance and comfort that we trust Him. Faith and trust are interchangeable. We can walk in faith, or we can live in faith. We can walk in trust for our particular situation,...

Opportunities are Opening Your Doors – A Word by Cheryl Jenkins

Cheryl Jenkins Link To Cheryl’s Page On Facebook As I was sitting, just meditating on the Lord, I heard him say, “opportunities are opening doors.” In my natural mind I was thinking, don’t open doors present opportunities… Lord, did I hear you right or do I have it backwards? He showed me many of you have been looking for the open door that would give you your big opportunity to advance. But, the Lord says, He will create your big opportunity as you obey Him in the little things each day. Your continued obedience is building character. Your faithfulness to your commitments will open the suddenly and unexpected in your life to opportunities you didn’t even recognize as opportunities or never thought of as an opportunity. As you actively seek Him and obey what He tells you, you are proving yourself as a leader and allowing the Lord to establish you. When the Lord feels you have died enough to yourself and your agenda, the opportunities will present themselves. As you say yes and step into the opportunity before you, it will open the door to your next destiny assignment. A few months ago, I was presented with an opportunity to oversee our Children’s ministry at church. You may be thinking… children’s ministry… an opportunity? I was already busy launching a ministry the Lord had directed me to build as I was awaiting an open door that would move it to the next level. While I felt I really did...

2020 is the Year to Decree – A Word by Sylvia Neusch

Sylvia Neusch View Bio sylvianeusch.com I hear the Spirit of God saying that 2020 is THE YEAR TO DECREE. God is calling His people to step into their assigned roles as His royal priesthood. There is a significant alignment and positioning taking place. Heaven is looking for those who will step into this place ordained by the Father.  "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."      I Pt. 2:9 It is time for those who agree and decree to arise. Destiny hinges on what will be declared and uttered in the coming days. The Lord is looking for those who will set in motion His intended plans by the declarations of their mouths.  I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "My light will shine on agreement, and there will be a GREAT UNLOCKING as My people step into their roles as My royal priesthood. There are plans that have awaited this appointed time and this appointed season. For Heaven awaits a MOUTHPIECE. Heaven awaits those who are willing to YIELD and REVEAL the inspired utterances given to them.  This is a time of CO-LABORING and CO-DECLARING  My Kingdom into all the earth. For My sleeping army is awakening to the battlecry of My heart as even now I say, 'Awake sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.' (Eph. 5:14) I am putting FIRE on the tongues of My people....

Strike The Ground With The Word Of God & Watch The Breakthrough Come – A Word by Madeline James

Madeline James View Bio nabispen.com Lately the Lord has been speaking to me about the power of the Word of God. When we release the Word of God it carries the anointing to break us through to our next. I know “breakthrough” can seem a bit clique at times, and its been worn out. I truly believe we are in a season of breakthrough as we get ready to step into. This is significant and necessary because we are stepping into a new era and time. Breakthrough can be defined as a sudden, dramatic important development (dictionary.com) Also, it can be an act or instance of moving through or beyond an obstacle (Merriam-Webster.com) I truly believe these definitions are what Heaven is desiring to manifest in our lives. Breakthrough is your portion. As we move into the last few weeks of 2019, I want to encourage you that God has not forgotten you. It may seem like the opposition around you is caving in, and another year is going by without any change. There is always hope because Jesus is the hope of glory. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). Your night season is shifting. Another word we often use is “shift.” Shifting can be defined as changing, especially, unpredictability, take a new direction (dictionary.com). I believe the God of the breakthrough is coming to shift into a new direction. For many of you, you’re going to find yourself going in one...

Passing The Torch – A Word by Elaine Tavolacci

Elaine Tavolacci View Bio awordinseason.info   In the Bible we read about men and women of God whose mantles or ministries were passed to the next generation. Moses had an extraordinary ministry with miracles, signs and wonders. The Lord spoke to Moses through a burning bush. He used Moses to send plagues on Pharaoh and all of Egypt. He gave Moses authority to part the Red Sea and millions of the Israelites went through on dry land, but Pharaoh and his army drowned as they tried to pursue them.   After Moses died, his ministry was passed on to Joshua. The Lord said to Joshua “no man will be able to stand against you, as I was with Moses, I will be with you”. The Lord promised to give Joshua the land that he promised Moses. He told Joshua three times in chapter one “Be strong and very courageous”. The book of Joshua goes on to say how they crossed over the Jordan on dry land as the priests led them carrying the Ark of the Covenant. Elijahs mantle was passed to Elisha. After Elisha had been serving and following Elijah for some time Elijah asked him; what may I do for you before I am taken away? Elisha responded; I want a double portion of your Spirit (anointing). This word for spirit in the original Hebrew context is ruwach which is breath, wind, spirit. It is referring to the living breath of God, a living mantle.   Elijah replied,...

The Righteous Wheel Gets the Oil – A Word by Lori Suiter

Lori Suiter View Bio lorisuiter.wordpress.com We have all heard the saying “The squeaky wheel gets the oil”, but I believe we have become a culture of squeaky wheels. I sensed this morning in prayer that this is on the Lord’s heart and He is fiercely intent on flipping the tables to change the script from rewarding the loudly critical and deceptive into rewarding the quietly faithful, thankful, and righteous. What I heard in my spirit was “The righteous wheels will get the Oil” flowing straight from the throne room of Heaven. It is undeniable when you look around this world that the loudest voices seem to get the most attention.  It seems some people believe that if you say something enough times or loud enough it will somehow make what they are saying true. Truth will always rise eventually. In the business world fears negative reviews for their product, school, or business so if they see or hear a complaint, they tend to bend over backwards to make the complainer happy due to the fear of lawsuits.  Now I am not talking about justified complaints over poor treatment or bad service . I’m talking about the people who have a lifestyle of looking for ways to manufacture offense out of the genuinely innocent and then sue or vent about it in an angry and very loud way all over social media for attention. They are looking for how to take advantage of the situation for selfish gain. At the very...

Time to Silence Sanballat – A Word by Ryan Johnson

Ryan Johnson View Bio ryanjohnson.us I recognize that many in the Body of Christ are in one of the greatest battles they have faced. I see men and women of God who have served the Lord for many years, yet they have been slammed with aggressive attacks by the enemy of the Lord. These attacks have weighed heavily on the men and women of God, as they are seeking for answers. Currently, there is a well thought out plan of personal attacks towards leaders in the Body of Christ. Leaders who have walked with integrity and demonstrated character for years. They have been hit with false accusations, slander, deception among brethren, the twisting of words, and mockery (against them personally, agains their family, and against the ministry they serve). Please allow me to remind you (the reader) of the importance of knowing that these attacks have come against men and women in the Body of Christ who have years of integrity, years of a good character, and years of demonstrating the heart of the Father.   So, what is happening? Why the sudden surge of false accusations? Why does slander catch the ear of others, yet truth seems to fall to the ground? Why has mockery become the standard, yet integrity rarely gets the value it deserves? First of all we have to recognize the status of what is happening around the world on a natural element. Look at how the media portrays leaders that they deem unacceptable. Look at...

Listen Up, O Soul! – A Word by Judy Jacobs

Judy Jacobs View Bio JudyJacobs.com Do you need encouragement, healing, or strength today? If so, I want to encourage you and share with you what I do when I feel like that too! Let’s look at Psalm 103:1-5 first. This passage says: Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. It seems almost ridiculous to talk to yourself. But, then again, sometimes it is a good strategy when you’re in a very tight place and you are feeling lonely. There have been plenty times in my life when I have had to get in front of a mirror and remind myself of who I am as a daughter of the Most High God. (I’ll give some examples below.) In the Bible, people were often people are forced to talk to themselves. In this particular psalm, David is finding himself in need of being reminded of what to do when He wanted God to come through for him. The psalm isn’t just for David, though. It is also for you and me. It’s an example of what to do when we need to remind our very souls of who our God...

How To Regain the Will To Live (with Prayer for You) – A Word by Jamie Rohrbaugh

Jamie Rohrbaugh View Bio FromHisPresence.com   Have you lost your will to live today? If so, I want to pray for you. There have been times when I have lost my will to live. That doesn’t mean I was suicidal, although I have dealt with that too. I’m talking about something different here. I’m talking about losing my will to live–my will to go on–my will to carry out God’s purpose for my life. You can lose your will to live without actually wanting to die, but both things are equally destructive. Have you lost your will to live also? If you have, I want to share with you today how you can get it back, based on my own personal experience. Then, at the end of this blog post, I have included a prayer for you to regain your hope and will to live. How to regain the will to live: ... based on my own personal story. 1. Tell God where you are. He already knows, so this is not going to be a shocker for Him. God’s not sitting in Heaven gasping in disbelief when you confess your deepest struggles to Him. He knows all about it before you do, so you can be open and honest with Him. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. In my situation, I felt pretty battered and beat up because of some things I’d been through. I felt so bruised, and I couldn’t just snap out of it. I didn’t even realize I...
