How can I help?

Romans 15:1‭-‬5 MSG
Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?” That’s exactly what Jesus did. He didn’t make it easy for himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded right in and helped out. “I took on the troubles of the troubled,” is the way Scripture puts it.

Wow! What a time to be stepping up and asking God, “How can I help? Lord, who will you put on my heart today that needs assistance in these current uncertain times?”

If we will listen to the prompting of the Spirit of God, we can be led right toward those who need our help, finding that God has given us exactly what is needed to serve them.

Ask neighbours, friends and strangers how you can help them too. It may be something practical like groceries or a phone call, or it might be reassurance and prayer, healing or whatever else their particular situation requires.

Jesus went out of His way to assist us so we should continue to do the same. Look for opportunities. Expect God to do miracles wherever He sends you. Keep planting in this time and later on you will reap such a great harvest for the Kingdom of God!

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE FROM A SIX YEAR OLD: The invisible MASK!

photo-1524499982521-1ffd58dd89ea.jpeg

God revealed to my six year old daughter Heidi that as believers we “wear an invisible mask”.

She went on to tell me that God has given us an invisible mask against viruses because we are covered by the blood of Jesus.

I knew straight away it was a message from the Lord because it was said with much authority and brought an enormous amount of peace with it.

It is a great illustration for us to remember when fear comes to dampen or snuff out our faith. I love that God uses little children with child-like faith to relieve all anxiety.

Thank you Jesus for your protection over us, our households and those around us. Let us be a shining light in these chaotic times, sharing Your love and advancing the Kingdom of God.

Psalm 34:7 (ESV)
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: Beware of the Michal’s!

David had hit the high of all highs! He was pumped, elated and unashamedly proclaiming his victory in a public display of jubilant celebration!

‘So David and all the people of Israel brought up the Ark of the Lord with shouts of joy and the blowing of rams’ horns.’(2 Samuel 6:15 NLT)

David had every reason to triumphantly praise and thank God for the mighty blessing of having the ark back. The presence of God had come to the City of David and despite wearing only his priestly garment, he was not holding back.

But David was strongly rebuked and criticised by Michal (Saul’s daughter) for dancing before the Lord and she despised him. (See 2 Sam 6:16)

Don’t be surprised when your passionate worship and celebration dance stirs up the Michal’s around you! Those that want to steal your freedom to worship extravagantly will come knocking.

Not everyone will be joining in with you as this next victory breakthrough causes joy and thanksgiving to come bubbling out of you.

But, you just keep your eyes on Him, keep your praise flowing, your victory moves pumping, blow your horn, jump, clap, shout and dance as David did! When the glory hits you, you will dance like never before!

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

After being troubled by what I had been hearing through media reports, the voice of the Lord came to me: “who are you listening to?”

My eyes were open to the enemy’s tactic at this time to try and throw us off course, to divert or postpone the work of the Lord.

He intends to get us flustered and double minded in our decisions, even tempting us to abort promises and major life defining trips He has been preparing us for.

I believe God is encouraging us to keep going forward despite the threats thrown at us. We must come together in prayer to conquer diseases of all types, as well as overcoming anxiety and fear by being strategic and prayerful about what voices and thoughts we allow into our hearts.

‘So then, banish anxiety from your heart’ (Ecclesiastes 11:10a NIV)

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
(Luke 10:19 NIV)

Release your gifts!

What are your gifts? What’s been put within you that leaves others uplifted?

Now is the time to stir up your gifts and fan them into flame! (2 Timothy 1:6) Be bold and courageous and put them into practice.

Allow God to move in you and through you to motivate, help and bless those around you.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Romans 12:6‭-‬8 (NIV)

Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale.
1 Corinthians 1:7 (MSG)

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: Coming out of this without a scratch.

Passionate and devoted sons and daughters of God are encountering intensifying persecution, opposition and intimidation in various forms.

The lies, attacks and threats have been relentless and you may feel like you’ve been through a shipwreck but God says “You will come out without even a scratch”!

Acts 27:33-34 (MSG)
With dawn about to break, Paul called everyone together and proposed breakfast: “This is the fourteenth day we’ve gone without food. None of us has felt like eating! But I urge you to eat something now. You’ll need strength for the rescue ahead. You’re going to come out of this without even a scratch!”

So not matter how loud their threats become, no matter how fierce the raging sea engulfing you, gather some strength for the rescue. Hang in there, keep standing cause when this storm ends…

He will not only get you safely on dry land but you will come out of this without even a scratch.

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: The power to decree

Yesterday I saw in the spirit believers walking around with signet rings. They were given the power to overturn demonic forces but very few of them were actually using them.

Their heads were downcast, overcome with defeat and oppression but as they began to open their mouths and prophesy victory and tear down these forces of darkness, things began to shift. They were putting a seal on their words.

They replaced lies spoken over them with the truth. They identified strong principalities and powers over regions and brought them down by using the very tools God had given them to overcome.

It was a contagious event. As one began to speak out, others followed. There was a surge of positive declarations across borders and a great unity of declarations intensified to conquer battles that had been raging across governments for decades.

As we also begin to take our authority over the darkness we encounter, we will see a great and mighty move of the Spirit upon our regions and nations for Jesus.

Your order has the authority of The King. It’s a weighty responsibility but one that must be taken up.

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: Rise up “no names”

The strangest thing happened yesterday. I received an important letter in the mail that I’d been waiting on addressed to…get this: “No Name”! 😆

Was this some sort of joke? I actually stood at the mail box looking at the typed up letter and having a good ol’ chuckle to myself!

Then God revealed to me that He is raising up and calling forth the “no names”. They are those that have no title nor honourary position, but are hidden and are quietly going about their work with the Lord.

There were some names that He brought to my mind of such people, but there are many I’m yet to be shown due to their “hiddenness”.

They are intimate in prayer, sitting at the Masters feet gleaning from Him, eager to receive their next step. They are not concerned with seeking recognition or fame.

Recently I watched the movie “Hidden Figures” which reveals the mathematitians behind the astronaut John Glenn’s launch into orbit. They were unseen, unrecognised women that changed history. Another confirmation.

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 (ESV)

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: The power to gain wealth

I sense the Lord bringing a great harvest of abundance to His people. There is a transfer of resources appearing as His children focus their attention on the Giver and are obediantly pursuing the mission, project or assignment He has spoken.

This finance is coming from unusual places as well as a result of strategies He has previously impressed upon us. What looks like small amounts are accumulating to accomplish projects that have sat on the shelf for a long time.

“No more procrastinating”, says the Lord. “You will gather all you need and beyond, so now is the time”.

But remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your fathers, as it is today. (Deuteronomy 8:‬18 CSB)
