Word of the Lord for this Season

Psalm 24:1-3 “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in His holy place?”
He founded it upon the seas and it was established upon the floods. Ponder this for a minute, founded…established.
In times past, as days went by, we began to see repeated trials and encounters. Many that have sprung forth as battle after battle has ensued. Then following a brief calm, here comes another obstacle with a need for God’s daily grace to overcome. We catch our breath only to find situations seemingly arise from out of nowhere. Know this, there is a method to the madness. We are in quality control, and while we’re being UL tested the battles that have come are not to destroy us but to better prepare us for the seasons ahead.
To those who are in the crucible of fiery trials know that we are being set in place and strengthened for the times ahead. Not only will we be ready to advance in the midst of shaky systems and circumstances within our government, but even through the trouble that lurks within the confines of our churches. There will be a movement within the people of God. A people are being prepared to be battle-armed and battle-ready with the prophetic wisdom and strategies on what to do for they will spontaneously and supernaturally move in the moment. They will be ready to take on each obstacle as it comes forth unexpectedly with force and might.
Just as this earth has been established by the Lord, men have set measures in place that have jeopardized our future. The foundations of these things have been faulty, but before man ever set things in place we serve a God who has provided a course for our lives. As we begin to walk in the new day we will be able to overcome some of what is about to occur.
The reality is that we must continue to move forward and not lose sight of what we have been called to do. So we must press on and press in. Our victory is in our press, and our ability to overcome will be discovered in the foundations of God’s word. Walking in obedience, humility, and servant hood will be the order of the day.
Repentant prayers while seeking Him and serving Him will be the road that leads us into the knowledge of truth. By seeing with our spiritual eyes what is really occurring in our present reality we will realize that our repentance will birth forth life, answers, and solutions to pass onto others. This will not come from an elite group of people but a diverse group who have been given a purity of purpose and a clarity of compassion that will speak to masses of diverse people near and far.
What has been founded in us is now being established in us. God’s wisdom is being worked in our lives through the overcoming of trials. The arrogance of pride is being brought low and there will be a rising up of a humble people who know the Lord. Our willingness to sacrifice for the lives of others will yield a survival strength.
Many of those who were and are now in positions of authority will cry out and their hearts will be convicted. Turning them to truth, love, and real restoration. There is a great uncovering that is about to occur in the church and the Lord is raising up people who will initiate the deliverance of things that have been pushed under the rug for a long time. Light will shine in dark places and reveal the Glory that many have been crying out to see. For the Lord rising up with Healing in His wings to set in place that which has been missing and to mend brokenness that has laid waste.
I hear the heart of the people in Isaiah 21:11 KJV “The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?”. So we ask, How far gone is the night?, What is left of the night?, and How much longer until the morning?. Yet I hear the Lord say Isaiah 21:12 KJV “The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will inquire, inquire ye: return, come.”. I pray the Lord gives you the true revelation of what this means.
