Has the battle been so intense that you have even, at times, questioned the call and anointing on your life? Has satan invaded your sphere with a haze of distractions, causing your vision to become blurry? Have you been unable to see clearly? TODAY the distractions break, and the haze lifts!
As we entered the month of July, it officially marked the halfway point on the Gregorian calendar for this year. The Lord spoke to me in a time of prayer and said, “GET READY FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THIS YEAR. Things that have been held up will be released.
“Because you have been inundated with such great interference and warfare in the first part of this year, you failed to recognize that the season has now changed! The opposition you have encountered is confirmation that you are EXITING one season and ENTERING another season!”
God says that you will see through the lens of the Holy Spirit. He is empowering you now to confront and defeat the blockades that have hindered your sight. The enemy will be exposed, and you will see it! Moreover, you will understand the next step in the Lord’s plan for your life. You will be amazed at how clear that which you did not understand before will be to you. It is not too late! Everything God has promised you will come forth in this hour. His word to you shall surely come to pass! (Photo via Unsplash)
Get Ready for an “Even Now” Miracle!
While I was in this worship and prayer time with the Lord, He led me to read the familiar story of Lazarus. He was stricken with sickness and at the point of death. Mary and Martha, his sisters, had sent a message to Jesus asking for Him to come to heal their brother, but Jesus did not come. He waited until Lazarus died and was buried. When Jesus came, Martha rushed to meet Him. She said, “…if Thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee” (John 11:21-22, KJV).
God is telling you to get ready for an EVEN NOW miracle. In the second half of this year, you will see a resurrection of things that have been dead; God is doing a NEW THING.
He has seen how the enemy has buffeted you. He has seen the intense conflict you have faced on every side, and now He is coming to deliver you. There is a turnaround being released over your life!
“But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (Isa. 43:18-19, NLT)
What God did in the first half of this year is nothing compared to what He will do in the second half. You are coming into an EVEN NOW moment. It is not over. “…Weeping may endure for a night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning” (Psa. 30:5, AMP). Did you read that? God is turning your weeping into birthing, your crying into shouting, and your evening into morning.
Preparing for the New Thing
God says, “Start preparing for this new thing I am doing in you. It will not be aborted. My plan cannot be stopped. You have wept tears of heartbreak, but now you will shout of joy and rejoice in gladness. I have made deposits in you that you did not even know were there. In this second half, you will receive a fresh vision, as well as new skill sets to accomplish the mission.” (Photo via Wallpaper Flare)
Just as David could not face Goliath with Saul’s armor, the anointing that you carry will be utilized to bring forth great victory. You are a giant killer! You were made to stand out. That is the reason you could not fit in with everyone else. You are a part of the new wineskin.
The Lord is raising up new vessels of honor—yes—new voices who will carry His Word with power, and whose flow will be pure. You are that voice. You will not be a mere proclaimer of His Word but also a demonstrator of His power to the world. Your voice will come out of the tomb of despair and disappointment. The Lord is leading you into your divine appointment.
God is calling you forth today! Just as Jesus said, “Lazarus, come forth!” He declares the time is now for you to come forth.
“And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.” (John 11:44, KJV)
Lazarus came forth, but the graveclothes of an old season tried to keep him bound. The last season is over. The dead season is finished. It is time for you to be loosed and walk in the season of resurrection. Everything that has tried to thwart your destiny is now loosed. The time is now. The second half of this year is here. The acceleration of His purpose has begun for you.
