"By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household.... - Hebrews 11:7
Through a divine visitation, God specifically prepared Noah for unprecedented events that unfolded in his generation. No human reasoning or natural wisdom could have provided the necessary insight and strategic blueprint for survival. Noah prevailed only by the Spirit of Revelation and obedience to the spoken…Continue

It is time for us to align ourselves with God's government and shift into our new season. However, to totally shift, we are must press beyond our circumstances and religious belief systems. We are being challenged to press beyond the pressures of our own abilities to make things happen, and press only to look to Him.
In our new season, we will not be able to make any "strange fires" as Nadab and Abihu (Numbers 26:61). They tried to…Continue

"AFTER this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in Heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like (the calling of) a war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future." Revelation 4:1
We must basically wage war with the old mindsets that keep us from "coming up" into this divine advancement. It is an invitation to enter a Heavenly door, and enter into the revelation that we need to…Continue

"And a woman who had a hemorrhage (KJV "an issue") for twelve years, and could not be healed by anyone, came up behind Him, and touched the fringe of His cloak; and immediately her hemorrhage stopped. And Jesus said, 'Who is the one who touched Me?' And while they were all denying it, Peter said, 'Master, the multitudes are crowding and pressing upon You.' But Jesus said, 'Someone did touch Me, for I was aware that power had gone out of Me.'
And when the woman saw that she…

Isaiah 48:6 - "....I have made you hear new things from this time. Even hidden things, and you did not know them."
The Spirit of God encourages each of us to advance -- drawing us ever closer to our Lord to move in power, and to take the Kingdom for the King! Our day is a day of swift shift; a spiritually radical revolution in our perspective is at the door. We expect God to display His mighty deeds in doing new things (Isaiah…

Travail connotes that we are at a narrow transition. This transitional place is a life and death intersection. The transitional place is a place of "crossing over." Travail means that we are in a "distressed" moment.
Travail is a specific type of prayer which births (Isaiah 66:7-9), as well as wars (Isaiah 42:12-14). When a person enters a time period or season of travail (birthing and/or warring), they will experience it as a heaviness, a weight, a BURDEN, a deep penetrating concern,…Continue

As believers we are rooted and grounded in His magnificent love (see Eph. 3:17). Because we are established in His love, we have a peace that passes all natural understanding. And we have courage, the depth of which is confidence in the Lord. We cannot trust in our own reasoning. Instead, today we declare that we will, “Trust in the LORD with all [our] heart, and lean not on [our] own understanding; in all [our] ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct…Continue

"Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over times gone by; I am doing something NEW! It's springing up – can't you see it? I am making a road in the desert, rivers in the wasteland" - Isaiah 43"19.
A new thing can be happening, but in the midst of a beginning we can fail to perceive the change. Remember, an END always precedes a beginning. Therefore, the question becomes this: "How are we reacting when an END comes and a…

No one wants to make another trip through the wilderness. This is not a time to walk in circles. We are to walk with a true goal, aim, and purpose, making the most of each opportunity, because we know the time is short (see Ephesians 5:14-17). Paul, the apostle, instructs us to walk purposefully toward one true goal -- God's PURPOSE for our life (see Philippians 3:12-16).
No one has time to wander around the mountain of defeat and unbelief; we are to lay hold of…

"If we advance protected by the Blood of the Lamb, if we war armed with the Word of God, and if we shoulder in our hearts the Cross of Christ, we will truly be more than conquerors through Him that loved us."
Christ not only came to set captives free, He came to train and empower the recently freed to be warriors. How can we, imperfect Christians, walk triumphantly? The Bible says we overcome "because of the Blood of the Lamb and…Continue

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
The presence of the Holy Spirit teaches our spiritual eyes of faith to see this way into the invisible. God grants us visionary access to walk into a reality that is superior to the natural realm where we exist most of the time.
Once we gain God's VISION FOR OUR FUTURE, then we are able to prophesy it into existence. If we will take a leap…
