“We’ve Never Been This High Before”

Heard this in my spirit on a mountain hike 2 weeks ago where the air is thin, and from a sister on a prayer teleconference a week later.

Six years ago in a prophetic dream with my grandson, older in the dream, with me on a platform lookout.  We looked out together and he said, “we’ve never been this high before.”

Lord, You’re taking us to new heights in the Spirit.  Pastor John Arnott told us in January that You, God, are doing all new things.  May we never take You for granted, but expectantly hope in You and Your truth. In Jesus’ name.

Mark 9:2-3, “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them.”

“O sing unto the Lord a new song; for He hath done marvellous things: His right hand, and His holy arm, hath gotten Him the victory.” Psalm 98:1 (KJV)

 

God’s Rebuke

Proverbs 1:23, (NKJV), “Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.”

Psalm 104:7, “At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away.”

Thank You for lovingly teaching us, Father. Let us worship and glorify You by hearing and obeying You.

“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.” Prov 3:11-12

Psalm 73:

Verse 17, “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”

Verses 23-24, “Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.”

Verse 28, “But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GodThat I may declare all Your works.”

 

Power in the Name of Jesus

As we sang this song, God spoke through a prophet:

  • You have to believe it!
  • Stand on it!
  • Act like it!
  • You’re My representatives.  The enemy can be defeated if you stand on it.

Praise God, thank You Father for giving us hope and strength.  Yes, our faith waivers, but we are strong and mighty in faith knowing that You Who promised good works is faithful to complete them (Eph 2:10, Phil 1:6). In Jesus’ Name.

Romans 1:16 (NKJV), “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.”

Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

1 Corinthians 2:5 (KJV), “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

“Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” Matt 26:64

“For Now”

God answers in my spirit.

  • tend a garden
  • recover from….?
  • work here
  • now you rest

“Reset” He told a friend, take a few days and unplug, listen to Him. Waiting on the Lord isn’t passive, it’s believing and trusting with all your heart.  Leaning not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Standing against the enemy with your shield of faith (Eph 6), refusing to back down from your belief in Jesus.

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV), “But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”

Psalm 25:3, “Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.”

Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the Lord
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Jesus talking:

Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

‘I Am Not Afraid’ – Prophetic Dream

A sister in Christ shared this prophetic dream: share it!

An old man asked to hold her hand to cross the street.  She did, then she was in his car.  The grip on her hand was too tight.  He said to her, “Are you afraid?”

She answered, “No, I’m not afraid because I’m covered by the blood of Jesus, the Lamb. And no weapon formed against me shall prosper (See Isaiah 54:17).”

The man immediately shriveled up.

The Lord also gave her Psalms 1 and 2 to read.  The enemies will be scattered. Psalm 2:7, “You are My son, I brought you forth.”

*This is a Head up!  Be strong in the Lord, don’t be afraid or deceived, wherever you go for the Lord, He will protect you, His blood over you and His word are powerful. Praise God!

Isaiah 54:17, (The Message), “but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged.  Any accuser who takes you to court
    will be dismissed as a liar. This is what God’s servants can expect.
    I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.
        God’s Decree.”

Joy

“Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.

“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.

“Until not you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” Jesus in John 16:22-24 (NKJV)

Sometimes I laugh, and sometimes I only realize I have joy as an afterthought.  To me, joy is a by-product of trusting and resting in the Lord. Though chasing it doesn’t seem to work, lol.

Psalm 30: 5, 11-12:

“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.  O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.”

Psalm 16:11, “In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” 

 

 

Nightlight – Prophetic Dream

Choosing a nightlight in a store; picking up one, then another from a bin. An older woman came over to help me.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14 (NKJV).

“And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:5

“Arise, shine; for your Light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1-2

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11.

Thank You, Daddy God, for this special dream!  I count on You all the day long, everyday.  You love us and make us feel special.  We don’t call You, but You called us to Your throne room.

 

 

I Love Everything About YOU

Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy.  For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.” Psalm 33:3-5 (NKJV).

“But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Jesus teaches in Luke 12:31-32.

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11.

Dear Lord, we love You beyond words.  “I woke up today,” that’s enough reason to dwell with You, thank You, glorify You, and see Your work in everything around us.

***Thanks all you readers and writers!  You’re in my prayers as well, thanks for all the likes!

Friend, Farewell

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, destroy them.” Deuteronomy 33:27

“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.” Psalm 92:13 (KJV)

They sang “Face to Face” at church the Sunday after I learned a friend passed away; they didn’t know, but God knew. How she cried for and served others!

Father God, You are our sweet consolation. Thou life doesn’t go like we planned and people leave, I know that we’ll see her again.  “Life or death I’m with the Lord!” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” Jesus praying in John 17:3 (NKJV).

Loves His Own Soul – Boundaries

Proverbs 19:8,16, “He who gets wisdom loves his own soulhe who keeps understanding will find good.”

He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, But he who is careless of his ways will die.”

God stresses our care of our souls because it’s the part of us that is eternal. When our bodies die, our soul goes either to Lord Jesus for eternal life or to eternal death sans God. We can choose.

Like the cold of snow in time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him, for he refreshes the soul of his masters.” Proverbs 25:13

Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord‘Will you not tremble at My presence, Who have placed the sand as the bound of the seaby a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it? And though its waves toss to and fro, yet they cannot prevail; though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.” Jeremiah 5:22

“You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.” Psalm 104:9 (NIV)
