“For you said, ‘The lands of Israel and Judah will be ours. We will take possession of them. What do we care that the Lord is there!’ Therefore, as surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, I will pay back your angry deeds with my own. I will punish you for all your acts of anger, envy, and hatred. And I will make myself known to Israel by what I do to you. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have heard every contemptuous word you spoke against the mountains of Israel. For you said, ‘They are desolate; they have been given to us as food to eat!’ In saying that, you boasted proudly against me, and I have heard it all! “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The whole world will rejoice when I make you desolate. You rejoiced at the desolation of Israel’s territory. Now I will rejoice at yours!
Wow! I saw it in the spirit. I heard it in the spirit. An overwhelming sense of recompense and restitution; God rising up on behalf of His children is the only way I can describe it. A divine turnaround!
The Dictionary defines Recompense: “to make amends to someone for loss or harm suffered; to compensate.” As for the dictionary defintion of Restitution: “The restoration of something lost or stolen to its rightful owner. Reward, recovery, compensation.” With God, to restore is to give back better than before! Get ready….
You thought it was over, you were finished, washed up and washed out but instead you have been washed in the blood of Jesus and washed up in victory on the shore of a new promised land that is waiting for you to take it. You, child of God, have been positioned to proser. The enemy thought He had stolen and concealed this from you but now God reveals the promised land He is bringing your life to. It is a place of abundance, increase, multiplication, good success and favour; where you will work from a position of rest, as you walk and work in the spirit.
What is in front of you will take great faith for victory never comes without opposition! Remind yourself regardless of the challenge, bad report or impossibility: “Jesus + me = VICTORY! Jesus + me = the majority! In 2019, Jesus + me = opportunity!
God is making an end to the enemies that have assaulted your life and a new beginning of victories, successes, favour, influence, momentous miracles, fruitfulness and exponential growth have already begun. The tide has turned this year. The devil has thrown his worst at you. For a time you believed his lies, you cowered in fear and defeat but God’s children now arise to their feet/feat – a call to victory! I had to look up the meaning of ‘feat’ as God whispered it to my spirit, interestingly it means victory! It is an achievement that requires great courage, skill or strength, a coup, master stroke, triumph – wow, overthrow the enemies power everywhere you go. Your victory is sure! The enemy no longer walks all over you but you trample all over the enemy and His strategies.
I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit say, “You do not deserve what I am bringing to your life!” Simply receive all Heaven has for you with an attitude of gratitude, you can never earn what God is bringing your way, just give it back to Him with every breath you take, every word you speak, everything you do – in humility only live for Him and to give Him glory every day!
The enemy laughed and said he had taken possession of your calling, purpose, plans, prosperity, right relationships and fruitfulness that theLord had assigned for you. He did not seem to care that the Lord was with you or that you belong to Jesus – instead he was determined he had deceived you out of your birthright. Big mistake. Huge! You are recovering all and more. The devil just set you up for your biggest win for God Himself fights your battles and what the enemy meant for your harm and destruction just became your story to give God glory and destroy the devil’s deceit and authority in other peoples lives. God heard every word spoken against you, they insulted Him! Every word, every blow you took – God felt it as His own. Now He will repay every angry deed of envy and hatred against you, faithful one, for that is who God says you are. You wrongly thought your suffering was because you were useless and no good – in reality the enemy was afraid of the power-packed potential within you, and you experienced the shutdowns and insecure agendas of others too. Here is the reality, the truth that will open your eyes to see clearly and set you free. It is because you are God’s priceless child, with a character being aligned to His and a life that is continually being made into the image of His son, oh how the dirty devil hates you for that, but God’s love and victory is at work in your life – a fact even the devil cannot deny or defy! For that reason your God and saviour comes to your rescue, no-one messes with His own. Prince and Princess of the Most High God, your Father is still on the throne and you have all the back up of heaven on your side. As He comes to you, His reward is with Him – His presence will never disappoint, this is your time to shine.
The enemy licked his lips as he saw you coming his way, he thought you were food to eat and the prey, instead, in 2019 you are the pursuer and the one who will prevail. Mountains will move, demons will flee, sickness will be healed and nations will change as you pray! What you permit on earth is permitted in heaven, what you do not permit on earth is not permitted in heaven – God in you gives the command, bring His Kingdom and live by faith in the promised land! Signs, wonders and miracles will follow you as you follow Him, don’t strive to be a Leader, in simple Humility answer the Master’s call that says “follow me” and you will lead countless multitudes with you to eternity!
How the enemy fought for your promised land and He almost got his way but by the word of the Lord you now rejoice at his destruction and rise up recovering all the spoils of war. Trust, praise and watch in awe for no-one but God in your life has the final say! God is about to make Himself known to you in a fresh new way, the enemies you see today, you will see them no more. I heard a God whisper that will become a shout: : “There are new roads, new rivers, new innovations, new income streams, new directions, new diversifications, new ways of doing things about to be shown and my two sons, brothers now aligning on the earth, Israel and the Church, will make them known. Oh how the enemy sought to devour you and destroy you – now it is my time to empower you and shower you with blessings.”
God’s children are growing in strength in this hour of God’s power. As I said before in THERE IS A WHOLE NEW ORDER COMING… A God Word for 2019, Don’t be caught out with your trousers down but every time, whatever giants and impossibilities you face, be caught in the act of pursuing and believing God, active faith! Believe, receive and achieve!
When my adorable baby boy, Judah, appears before me in the kitchen with his trousers down and around his ankles, of course I don’t leave him that way but stoop down to scoop him up in my arms (and pull his trousers up). Now he can walk on safely, confidently and without tripping over. His brothers and sister are not laughing at him now! Oh how the Lord loves you. As you appear before him just as you are, shame and all, He straightens you out so you can walk on in Him, ruling and reigning in life, with honour in place of shame – what a divine exchange! Your enemies are not laughing at you now. They are cowering in the corner in fear as you command the room and the backup of heaven, possessing your promised land and owning the territory for Him. You exude Kingdom authority, child of God, don’t believe any differently! Your King is coming and He has instructed you and I to “Occupy until He comes!”
The devil comes to this world and to people’s lives as the Bible tells us in this passage from Ezekiel, to make desolate.
“You rejoiced at the desolation of Israel’s territory, now I rejoice at yours.”
The word desolate means to devastate, ravage, ruin, to destroy, wreck and wreak havoc on. Well, the devil has been having a field day with God’s children for far too long. The only territory he has is the territory he steals from you – determine he is not having your faith, family, purpose, promised land, calling or destiny for his breakfast, dinner or tea!
To be sad, cast down, distressed, weighed down, depressed, or oppressed is not the attire, son and daughter of the King, God ever intended for you to wear. Take it off. The devil is the desolate one, stripped of all his authority over you at the cross. Now yours is the kingdom and the gain – his is the loss!
The joy of the Lord is your strength. The secret to Samson’s strength in the famous Bible story was his hair. Delilah and the enemy of his soul made that “secret” their goal. The enemy has targeted your joy, just as he targeted Samson’s hair, he has done all in his power to cut it off – to weaken you, bring you down and leave you desolate in despair, but Samson’s hair grew and fresh joy and strength from the Holy Spirit are coming to those who will depend on Him to win!
As of 2019, by the word of the Lord, your change has come. For the children of God will make desolate the devil’s territory by boldly enforcing God’s word and taking everything God calls their own. God tells His children in Isaiah …. “I give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places.” Empty hell and fill heaven. Destroy the devil’s lies in yours and others lives. Take the veil, in prayer off blind eyes, those bound in dead religion, sickness and sin, so they can see Jesus in all His power, and welcome Him in.
Take territory this year, claim new ground, go boldly where you have never gone before by faith. As I have said many times: “What would you do if you knew you could not fail? Do it!”
The devil came to steal your potential, cut off your hair, leave you weak, humiliated and short of your promised land, that was his plan BUT God’s word comes to you today – “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!” This is the hour of God’s power for you!
I was cooking the Sunday roast and pouring the oil in for the Yorkshire Puddings when the Lord spoke to my heart. In the same way the Yorkshire puddings need the oil and the heat in order to rise, God’s anointing this year on His children who have been through the heat, the fire and the flames, will cause them to rise to new heights and go further than they have gone before. These lives will give God great glory! Yes, this is your time to rise and shine and you will be defined by His anointing and the fire of God! You’ve been prepared, you are ready, you met the requirement of God’s word by “Humbling yourself under the mighty hand of God that in due time He will raise you up”! When a woman’s due time has come, she is unstoppable; that baby, the new beginnings, joy unspeakable and life after all the labour and pain, comes forth. You are due, overdue…. get ready, there is a gushing of favour, anointing and nothing or no-one will be able to stop the victory and breakthrough. Victory has a name, His name is Jesus! Face every challenge with faith, they are only opportunities for God’s miraculous power to be performed as you rise every time in 2019, above it all!
“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” 1 Peter 5:6-7 (Amp)

Heavenly Father, Your word always requires a response. I humble myself and ask for your presence to lead the way this year, and I rise with you into all you have called me to. An extravagant life of faith and victory is before me. I love you Lord, may my life bring you great glory. In Jesus name. Amen.
