WEEKLY MESSAGE: Did someone say ‘PLANS’?!

If you live in Victoria, Australia, this message is especially for you! The restrictions we are under from governmental authorities right now is changing back and forth so often, if you don’t follow the news (I’m not suggesting you do), you won’t even be aware if you are breaking the law!

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will travel to such and such a city and spend a year there and do business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring — what your life will be! For you are like vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes. Instead, you should say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” But as it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
(James 4:13‭-‬17 CSB)

In our culture we plan and ‘sets visions’ daily, fixing events into a calendar and so often fail to seek the Lord’s will. But here God calls this ‘boasting’; acting out of presumption.

I am constantly thinking about this during this season as so many arrangements have been cancelled and postponed.

If you have children you will see this in action. You tell them they can go to the park…then parks are out of bounds (and don’t tempt them by walking past the swings). One day they are off to school…a few days later you’re homeschooling! Ahh! You say they can have a friend over and BAM! gastro hits the house. They don’t adapt well to sudden change.

But unlike a child with his mind made up, we need to be adaptable and maluble to follow the Holy Spirit. We must drop things if He leads us, being ready to change plans and be guided by Him.

When you wake in the morning ask Him what you are to do, where to go, and not just be tossed about by the waves with no Godly direction. He gives purpose to our steps, and puts people across our path. Pray.

We don’t wanna be so set in OUR OWN plans that we end up missing HIS!

WEEKLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE: What we need for this moment in time…

With so much corruption going on and an anti Christ spirit rising up, it is imperative that we ask God for the gift of DISCERNMENT.

We need to be aware of lies, traps, false god’s and idols around us.

Discerning distractions that will lure us away from intimacy and devotion to God is vital. We MUST get ruthless.

In this hour, hard decisions must be made and discerning between good and evil, right and wrong, truth and lie is key to staying the path and finishing well.

Tricks, lies, facades and bribes all await us ‘but the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him’ (the devil)(Daniel 11:32b NLT)

God is wanting to empower us with a heightened level of awareness and discernment to shut down the enemy’s plan to cause division, confusion and corruption in this time.

‘And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ’
(Philippians 1:9‭-‬10 NIV)

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: 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.

The scales are tipping in your favour

This is a time of decision making. It’s a time where outcomes are being weighed up and results are in the balance.

There is anticipation and in some cases anxiety as waiting upon important decisions takes place.

God is saying to His people: “The scales are tipping in your favour, My favour is upon you. Expect things to go your way. Believe for the best outcome during the waiting”.

If you are in this place of uncertainty, trust that God has heard your prayer.

Relax and rest as He works on your behalf to bring about the best outcome for you who are working with Him.

“Enough toe dipping” says the Lord

In worship today the Lord showed me clearly what was happening to the people of God in this hour.

The words “Enough toe dipping” was what I heard in my spirit.

He is revealing to His people a tactic of the enemy that prevents us going deeply into His presence.

He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High. Daniel 7:25a ESV

It is partly due to the environment that our generation is exposed to by continuous distraction and lack of focus. But also at times our hearts are longing for other things more than Him.

God wants to give us individual strategies to help us put aside larger amounts of time. This will create momentum in the spirit that’s required to enter into a deeper level. Then we will be more aware and sensitive to His leading.

It’s time to not just dip our toes but go ALL in!

A practice match

Judges 3:1-2 NIV ‘These are the nations the Lord left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not had previous battle experience).

Most of the older generation of Israelites had seen God come through and defeat their enemy time and time again.

But this time God deliberately left some nations in the land so that the new descendents of the Israelites could practice their battles and gain experience in spiritual warfare. God knew that they needed exposure to these enemies to prepare them for what was ahead.

God also wants to train us for battle by giving us a rehearsal. By overcoming these spiritual principalities and powers, we are practicing for bigger ones to come.

This preparation is healthy for us and ensures we will trust God in bigger challenges.
Make sure you qualify for stronger invasion, by conquering the ones you face now.

Waiting well

Are you waiting to have a baby, buy a house or find your spouse? Maybe it’s some finance to come through or a renovation that’s taking a long time? Waiting can be hard and frustrating.
This brief session of Hidden Manna will equip you to ‘wait well’.
