Almost awake, felt a heaviness on my breath. Heard in my spirit, “it’s an oppression.” I rebuked the oppression in Jesus’ name & felt immediately normal.
Isaiah 61:3, “…To give them…the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”
Derek Prince taught that depression or heaviness is an evil spirit. Nearly 2 years ago, a similar thing happened – I prayed against it. The following day, I heard a friend’s baby had shortness of breath at the same time as me.
When a sudden illness comes upon you, pray against it for yourself and anyone else who may have it, whether friend or stranger. This is how God heals through people like Randy Clark, Founder of Global Awakening – https://globalawakening.com/ .
…God said in the spirit when I questioned Him about what would happen next, how would things work out. I switched to praising and thanking Him!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:11
Acts 17:25, “Nor is He worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.”

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” Psalm 150:6 (NIV)
Sharing a favorite springtime hymn, glory to God! A Welsh folk melody.

Dream: vision depicting a present day ministry couple standing in front of their cleaning business wearing 1980’s ish, Members Only jackets, appearing much plumper than in real life.
People that are heavier in the dream represent God’s Spirit, weight of glory. Cleaning Business indicates deliverance ministry. The clothing label could be closed group. In the past means not active. See The Divinity Code to Understanding Dreams and Visions.
Rather than holding on to a ministry, let’s hold on to God with all our hearts. In Jesus name, amen.
“For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” Isaiah 61:11

“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.

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

“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!
My order of business for the Lord’s Sabboath was to be at Peace, then I’d do some stuff. The usual way is to spend hours with the Lord, reading His word, drinking coffee, singing, praising and worshiping and writing. My co-worker nodded in agreement, not knowing how I get “It”.
Dear Jesus, You are my Fountain, when I’m dry, I look to You for Your rains, O, Lord. Let it rain, bring the rain, the latter rain.
my soul thirsts for You, my flesh longs for You in a dry & thirsty land, where no water is; to see Your power & Your glory, so as I have seen You in the sanctuary.
“Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.”
Dear Lord, reading You loud and clear! Reading through The Scarlet Thread, she quotes Psalm 63! Last week Ps63:3, was quoted to me, the other day telling a friend the Pastor read Psalm 63 at the Hospice lunch.
