The following is, I believe, a prophetic word of Holy Spirit counsel for the week of January 27, 2019:
The original intention is for my church, The Sanctuary, Davenport, IA. However, I believe it has a broader application as and if it ‘quickens’ in your own heart!
“I have told you, says the Breath of Life, that there is a change in the wind close on the horizon, and indeed there is. I’ve also declared, says the Lord, if you observe what’s happening around you with your eternal eyes, you will perceive My breath and be encouraged with hope. But, if you see the shifting sands with natural eyes, you will realize nagging discouragement; emptied of hope.
For I call you, says the Father of Lights, to pierce through the darkness with the eyes of your heart. It is with God’s Kingdom eyes that you are invited to penetrate the dark veil of hopelessness and cynicism. You are called to see the effects of My Spirit’s wind already blowing.
Is it not true, says the Lord of All, that a destructive forest fire begins with a single spark? Is it not true that the largest of ships are guided by the smallest of rudders? Discipline the rudder of your inner voice, says the Lord; Cause its thoughts to guide you to the open waters of My Spirit. Fan the flame of revival’s smallest spark. Abandon cynicism. Quench not revival’s spark with doubt and despair that only sees clouds without rain. Blow on the tiniest flame with the breath of My Spirit’s optimism and watch the flames grow. Be not as the followers of Jesus who doubted Him because He was not a Messiah after their own image and prediction.
Know this; You will always see what you are looking at, and you will ultimately find what you are looking for.
I put before you a choice;
A decision to make;
An option you learn to embrace:
See the world’s darkness and experience its heartache,
Or look for My light, and discover the refreshing rains of my reviving.
Fixate on the world’s evils and become trapped by its web of frustration,
Or look with the eyes of My Kingdom, and be partners in finding the solution.
This says the Spirit of Revival to His partnering Sons and Daughters.”
May we all hear and be blessed by His fresh word,
