What and where is the hidden wealth of secret places? And why would God have “treasures of darkness?”
Someone asked me to pray for them this week. They had been experiencing a very difficult season financially and although they had prayed, fasted and stood in faith, they hadn’t seen the breakthrough needed. When she came to me for prayer, there were bills coming due and in the natural the finances weren’t there to cover them.
“Will you pray for me?” she asked.
As I prayed, the Lord spoke a word to me that I know is for many right now. He said, [Read more…] about Even in the Desert, “I Will Provide.”
God does His Big Thing in the Small Things. What does that mean? These are times when God shows up at completely unexpected times. He shows up and shows off. His big things that show up in the small things. [Read more…] about God Does His Big Thing in the Small Things
It is important that we recognize the times and seasons we are in.
Right now we are in the season of preparation to the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Passover is a time of preparation.
One of the important rituals of the season was a thorough cleaning of the home. They were also to remove any chametz from within. What is chametz? [Read more…] about There is Provision in Transition
As I was praying this morning, it was for those who have experienced lack–especially extreme lack. Many have walked through a season of either just enough or not really enough. It has been a desert of dryness, even though you have worked hard to see provision. No matter how and where you planted, the harvest just hasn’t come.
There have been many, many places where you sowed, but did not seem to reap. You have planted, but didn’t see the harvest. And you wondered.
Discouragement has tried to set in as the promise of provision has seemed to delay time and time again.
The word I heard Him speak will encourage you greatly. As I prayed for you, the word He spoke was, “Do not despair, but rejoice! For you have invested and your seed has borne fruit. It is producing a harvest for it was planted with a diligent hand and from a heart of fertile soil. Do not despair, but see with spiritual eyes and call it in now.
The best investments are most often the ones that are made and then left to build for years and years and years. Like a seed in the ground that cannot be seen, it is almost out of sight, out of mind, but in that place it is growing and building—growing and building. It is accumulating to huge proportions because of the principle known in the financial world as compounding interest. Even if you did nothing else to that seed after the initial investment–whether that was money, prayer, time or talent– by the very nature of compounding interest, that investment is going to grow the longer it remains so that it doubles, triples and quadruples. Those seeds you planted long ago have been compounding and the harvest is far greater than you ever imagined.
The word He spoke to me for you was “Do not be discouraged by those places where you have sown and invested your time, talent and prayers that seem to have been ignored or forgotten. Do not think I did not see. Do not think that there will be no harvest. Get ready for you have investments in heaven and it is time to call them to earth so that the places that now appear dry will be seen as overflowing fountains. I am depositing into your account that which has been stored up for you for this appointed time.”
“Things that looked like they were lost are being returned. Places where you invested, you will now eat of the harvest. Where you planted, you will reap.”
“Lack will be a thing of the past as you enter this new place where the barren desert will become a fertile plain.
