A TIME OF DELIVERANCE & RESTORATION
The Lord is showing me that there are many of you who have things in your lives that need to be uprooted in order to move to a higher place with God. There are gifts and callings that are being hindered because of these things. For some of you, there are things in your past that you are holding on to and afraid to release. Some of you are disheartened because you miss the good old days that you had, and some are still suffering psychologically and emotionally because of the awful situations that you’ve been through.
Some of you been through traumatic things in your past and although you were delivered, these horrifying memories are now resurfacing. Those bitter roots need to be exposed, dealt with and then severed. Just like a plant, unless you lay the ax to the root, they will keep sprouting. Some of you are re-living the thoughts of the past which may have been from a bad relationship, a divorce, an addiction or maybe even getting bullied. Others have been sexually abused as a child and need inner healing.
The Lord is also showing me that there are many of you that are afraid to trust anyone because people have hurt you many times in your life. Jesus wants to bring healing to you emotionally, mentally and spiritually so that these thoughts will be mere memories rather than tormenting flashbacks. He wants to bring you into your true identity, so that you could advance in your calling and your gifting. Then there are others who are still holding on to unforgiveness, guilt, shame, anger, resentment or bad attitudes.
The enemy will bring deranged thoughts as well as people into your lives to derail you from what you’ve been created to be. You have to not only learn how to recognize both, the voice of the Holy Spirit, and the voice of the accuser of the brethren. Satan is the father of all lies and wants to instill fear in believers. We all have a place in the Kingdom of God and we need to be free in our mind’s to discover our callings.
I believe that in this next move of God, Jesus is going to bring a deep conviction on us but also to those who abused us whether it was verbally, physically, emotionally or sexually. He wants us to forget the former things, not to dwell on the past, and release others that hurt us so that He could remove the shackles and set us free.
Some of you have even went back to drinking and taking drugs to mask the pain of the past and the pressure of the past season. This is a trap of the enemy. Don't fall into the landmines and booby traps that he is trying to set up for you. The Lord says let it all go and allow Me to repair those wounded places in your life. I have plans for you and as you trust Me, I will bring them to pass. Although people may fail you, I will never fail you, break My Covenant with you, neither will I revise My promises to you says the Lord.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (TPT)
“Stop dwelling on the past. Don’t even remember these former things. I am doing something brand new, something unheard of.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Corinthians 10:5 (TPT)
We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought[b] and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One.
