Finding Your Way In This New Season

Kathi Pelton

Our family is from Santa Rosa, California, where massive fires occurred this past October leaving thousands of homes burned and miles of areas unrecognizable. After the fires, we visited our hometown and drove through the area that was hit the hardest. It was the neighborhood where we raised our children and owned a home; it contained the park that we often relaxed and played in; it was where our sister and her family lived and where some of our dearest friends lived. And it was all gone.

As we drove through the streets, trying to find the home that we had owned, we became disoriented and confused. Every familiar landmark, house, and tree was gone. Even many street signs were melted away. When we found our old driveway (the house was gone), it did not even resemble what we knew it had looked like. All of the trees were gone—the redwood trees, the oak trees; and every sign of life had been incinerated. Every neighbor’s house was gone too. We found ourselves unsure if we were in the right place until we saw the address number painted on the curbside. Finding our way apart from the old and familiar landmarks was like trying to find our way in a foreign land.

Yesterday I spoke with Garris Elkins about this strange journey “home” and how it made me realize that we must have our familiarity and direction in Jesus in order to find our way in this world; especially in this new season. The world is ever-changing, but our God never shifts or changes. He is our “true north”. He is our one constant and sure marker on our journey “home.”

The entire body of Christ has experienced a shift and it happened about the same time as those fires (as we passed through Rosh Hashanah). What we knew before, and how we functioned before, no longer was relevant. It was a time of laying everything down, submitting ourselves to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and yielding our lives anew to His directions and His “markers” for this new season.

Like the address number on the curb that confirmed our location, so Jesus is the marker that we continually look to as we find our way. Our steps, our paths, our words, and our ways must be guided by Him alone.

“Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, ‘This is the way you should go,’ whether to the right or to the left.” Isaiah‬ ‭30:21‬

This is how we must walk! We must take His hand like a child traveling with their father, and walk step by step beside Him. We must listen to the Holy Spirit and obey each instruction, not going our own way—or even following the old, familiar ways. This is the path of blessing, fruitfulness, and abundant life. This is the obedience that brings heaven to earth. This is the life that reveals Jesus and brings light in the darkness.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19

Don’t Stop! Victories Are Imminent

Kathi Pelton

I woke up this morning with these words singing in the background of my mind,

“Day and night, night and day let incense arise…”

It is my deepest cry that our God receives the incense of worship, prayer, our deepest affections, and fully surrendered lives every moment of every day. There is truly no better place to live than in the place of being a “burning one” who, through surrender, has become one with the One who gave His all.

As I heard these words upon waking what rose up in my spirit immediately were the words for His sons and daughters, “Don’t stop! Don’t give up!”

It was like a shout from the hosts of Heaven to His people on earth. The incense of your life is affecting the atmosphere. As you allow the scent of Christ to rise from your life, it releases an incense that brings heaven to earth and causes demons to flee. God in you and pouring forth from you shifts the atmosphere and releases the supernatural into the natural world around you.

He is worthy of it all! Let your praises arise today and do not hold back. Let no one and nothing stop you from releasing the incense of praise. Don’t stop! Don’t be stopped. This is the way that you move into alignment with heaven. Fill the earth with His glory.

The angels are even now taking down the enemies that have come against you. Our Warrior King has gone out to fight for His inheritance. Your position is to let your “incense arise”.

“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!” 2 Chronicles 20:17

Be still and watch God bring forth victory after victory. Don’t stop, for your God is mighty in battle and He deserves the glory.

Be Still! God is in Control

Kathi Pelton

This morning I awoke to a text from a friend. She sent me a photo of the still waters of the harbor that she lives on and wrote the words,

“Be still and know that I am God.”

She did not know that I had gone to bed with a bit of a wrestle in my soul against concerns that are out of my control. Whenever this happens I am aware that the “stirring of the waters” is merely to steal my peace, my stillness (posture of trust and abiding in His faithfulness), and create striving. The enemy comes to make waves in order to block the view of Jesus.

When Jesus called Peter to walk to Him upon the water, they were on a stormy sea with waves that would have easily hindered Peter’s view of the Lord’s outstretched hand. As the waves blocked his view, fear set in and Peter began to sink beneath the raging sea. This is such a clear illustration of what the enemy tries to do with the storms of life and the waves of circumstances.

The One who calms the seas calls us to come out from the natural into the supernatural (walking on the water of faith) but the one who stirs the waters of fear will always try to block our view so that we will sink under the powerful force of the natural (seen) realm so that we will abandon faith for fear.

God speaks over the storms of life, “Peace be still”

He speaks over your life, “Be still and know that I am God.”

Our faith in this truth calms the storms of our souls and takes us into the supernatural ability to walk upon the water. Faith makes a pathway in which we can walk out to take hold of the outstretched hand of the One who has authority over every natural, created thing.

The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalm 118:6

Do not fear! If God is for us then who can stand against us? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? No one…not one!

Today, speak in faith to your soul, “Be still.” Walk out upon the natural storm that surrounds you and do not sink under the waves that rage with fearful intimidations of doom. Take hold of the outstretched hand of Jesus who will lift you above the natural into the supernatural stillness, peace, and rest of abiding in the shadow of His wing.

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”” Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2, 4-16‬

The Lord Spoke to Me Saying, “Tell My People That I Am Turning Their Impossibilities Into Miraculous Breakthroughs”

Kathi Pelton

Last night I had dream after dream of impossible situations that suddenly, unexpectedly, and miraculously reversed by the sovereign hand of God.

In one of the dreams I was holding a baby that had died. I was heartbroken and sickened; she was cold and blue. After a long while of holding her lifeless little body, I set her down. In my despair, I put my hand upon her and said, “If only I could pray for her to live.” As these words left my mouth she suddenly gasped for breath, warmth returned to her body and she was a healthy, pink, vibrant baby. I immediately picked her up and held her with a sense of shock and awe. I hadn’t even prayed for her to live again; I merely wished I could pray for her to live.

I knew that this dream was a prophetic message that God is about to resurrect those things that you have held but seem to have died. Though you don’t even have enough hope to pray for them, they will be resurrected. He will suddenly bring life to what you set aside as dead or lost.

For those of you facing what appears to be impossible situations that you have no answer for—especially jobs, finances, health concerns, tax expenses, debt, and things that are causing you to “worry about tomorrow,” I heard the Lord say,

“Tell My people that I am turning their impossibilities into miraculous breakthroughs.”

Rest, trust, breathe, and know that He has a way through every impossible situation that you are facing. His faithfulness is sure and His ways are above every earthly impossibility. He is the way!

Praise Him as the God of Breakthrough, the God who makes a way where there is no way, the God of miracles, the One who never leaves nor forsakes you. Sunday morning I woke up hearing the words repeating over and over,

“Who can stop the Lord Almighty!”

No man and no circumstance and no impossibility can stop Him or stand against Him. He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more that you can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20)!

God is Redeeming Past Traumas

Kathi Pelton

I have become quite aware over the past month of an outpouring from the Lord that is taking place regarding past traumas. I have not only seen this in many lives around me, but even in my own life. God is orchestrating redemption in ways that not only redeem past traumatic events, but actually bring greater honor and healing than if they had never happened.

Just as in the story in Genesis, when Joseph was betrayed by his own brothers, so your story will end like his…with great redemption.

“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭50:20‬ ‭

Even those who betrayed you (like Joseph’s brothers) will benefit from God’s redemptive work in you. Families will be restored and what was lost will become greater than it originally was before the trauma.

The bitter is becoming sweet again and it is reviving that which seemed irredeemable. In my personal situations, I can say that it is like I am dreaming as I look upon the redemption of the Lord. Every time I think that it’s “just too amazing” He overwhelms me with more.

As God’s people have remained faithful, even in the pits and prisons that others set them in, God is now arising in the fullness of time to fulfill the promises of old, to restore things lost or stolen, and to turn wails of mourning into shouts of joy.

“You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” Psalm 30:11-12

Even now, let thankfulness become your shout. Our Redeemer lives! He is riding on the winds of change and carrying recompense in His hands. He is accompanied by heavenly hosts that shout His praise and declare His faithfulness to all who call upon His name. He is showering the “rain of His reign upon His sons and daughters and extending His scepter to the pure in heart. Shout for joy, for He is worthy and He redeems.

It’s Time For the Flowers of Promises Fulfilled to Appear

Kathi Pelton

I just returned home after almost three weeks away. While I was gone, I remembered that as I left home I noticed that my tulip bulbs had sprouted, with the beautiful green leaves and buds that would soon color my yard with new life. Since I was away longer than I expected, I thought that surely they would have already flowered and I would have missed their announcement of spring.

As I was about to board the plane to return home, I received a text message from my husband (accompanied by a photo) of the first yellow tulip in full bloom and our cherry tree breaking forth in blossoms. They awaited my arrival home like a kiss from heaven upon my little piece of earth.

As I awoke this morning in my own bed, the sun was shining through my window and I knew that there was an announcement from heaven to God’s children. It is the words from Songs of Solomon 2,

“My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away. For lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land.” Song of Solomon‬ ‭2:10-12‬ ‭

This is the time that many have longed for; the time when beauty returns after a long, cold winter. The barren season is now giving way to birth of the long awaited promises that have been hoped for by faith. Beauty is bursting forth like the spring flowers to announce the arrival of desires fulfilled and the awakening of first love.

Suddenly your seeds sown and the promises planted deep in the soil of your heart will bloom. Though you thought that you missed them, you will be surprised to find out that they came forth at just the right time. The long winter season of your soul has done a deep work, unseen by man, but carefully watched over by God. He has done a work in your heart that has produced great hope, faith, and love.

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans‬ ‭5:1-5‬

The single yellow tulip in my yard as I arrived home was like the “cloud the size of a man’s hand” that Elijah saw when he announced that that “drought was over” (1 Kings 18).

Today I announce to you that the winter is over!

Sovereign Restoration Is Being Released

Kathi Pelton

The Lord has shown me the scales of justice being balanced. The enemy has brought about many injustices against God’s faithful people but those very injustices are now being reconciled, causing restoration in the lives of His faithful ones.

Suddenly your enemies will turn and bless you. Suddenly those who have stood against you will stand with you. Suddenly those who have caused you great pain will celebrate you and bring you great joy. God’s justice is even now balancing the scales to bring about restoration. Wrongs are being made right and where you have been misrepresented, mistreated, and betrayed; suddenly you will be “highly favored”.

The King of kings is establishing justice on behalf of those who have kept His ways and followed His commandments. He is establishing His rule and decreeing His favor upon their lives. He is setting in place those who will walk with His authority and anointing them with a “kingly” anointing.

When Solomon was anointed king by his father David, the enemy was already executing his plan to place someone else on the throne (1 Kings 2). God used Nathan the prophet to orchestrate the fulfillment of the promise David had given to Bathsheba—that Solomon would sit upon his throne. This scene is a picture of what God is doing in this hour. Just as in the days of Solomon, the enemy has sought to usurp God’s promises and plans, but God is orchestrating the restoration and fulfillment of His decrees. Suddenly those who have crowned themselves with authority through pride and arrogance will bow before the true sons and daughters—the ones on whom the King has bestowed the right to sit with Him upon His throne. Humble kings are being established and wisdom will flow through them with both justice and mercy.

The Spirit of the Lord showed me that the power of sorcery is now being dealt with—and dealt with severely. Sorcery is the use of power gained from the assistance or control of evil spirits. Many of God’s people have experienced this demonic power against their lives. God is giving those who have used sorcery a choice to repent and humble themselves or be taken out. This judgment against the evil spirits that are behind sorcery will bring great restoration to God’s people. It will also set many men and women free from the spirit of Jezebel that has controlled them. This freedom will begin by restoring individuals and families, and then spread to restore people groups, regions, and nations. Wicked deception will be exposed and the righteous judgments of God will break the back of the spirits behind it. Individuals who have manipulated people and circumstances through this power will be given a choice: humble yourself and receive mercy or be judged.

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.

The opposition that has become a stronghold against the promises of God will be broken and begin to crumble like the walls of Jericho. Do not lose hope and remain faithful even in the midst of the trials that you are facing. God is bringing about your restoration!

Miracles Are Happening

Kathi Pelton

When I married my husband, almost 35 years ago, I became part of a beautiful larger family as well. Jeff’s dad and mom became my dad and mom, his siblings became my siblings, and his huge extended family became my huge extended family. Over the past three decades that family has grown exponentially, with many births and very few deaths. All our immediate family has walked with Jesus with one exception: our beautiful mom.

Throughout her eighty years, Mom Pelton carried herself with dignity, kindness, generosity, and strength. Her smile could light up a room, and her giggle was absolutely infectious. In her prime, her beauty was the kind you would expect to see on a Hollywood red carpet. She deeply loved her family—nothing was more important or dear to her heart—yet she was also fiercely independent and tenacious in her opinions, and she refused to express any desire to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Her salvation became our greatest concern and constant prayer.

This past week, while Jeff and I were on a ministry trip, we received a phone call alerting us that Mom had been rushed to the hospital and was in the Intensive Care Unit with a dreadful infection that was causing her internal organs to shut down. The doctors did not give much hope for her survival. All the family gathered around her with the exception of Jeff and me.

Jeff is Mom’s firstborn, as well as the strength of the family. As her first night in the hospital slowly crept into early morning, Mom—through her intense pain and confusion—repeatedly called out for Jeff, wondering why he wasn’t there. From far away we were fervently praying, so although Jeff and I were not physically at her side, spiritually we were both more present than ever.

As soon as we received the initial call, Jeff and I, along with the family that was hosting us, had entered into a most amazing prayer time for Mom. During this time the Spirit of God gave one of our hosts a picture of Mom as a young girl living on her family’s ranch. She was sitting in tall grass and crying because her beloved horse had been kicked by another horse, and the injuries were so severe that he was being put down. She cried out to God to save him, but it was hopeless. At that point disappointment and unbelief tore open her young heart, causing a deep divide between her and God.

The Holy Spirit directed Jeff, the first born of her children and the first in the family to be born into the Kingdom of God, to open the womb of her spirit and minister to that little girl’s broken heart. He removed the lie that she perceived and believed through this painful event and spoke the truth of God’s love into her spirit. Powerful and deep revelations were given us as we continued praying, and we became absolutely certain that Jesus was about to reveal Himself to Mom in such a way that she would receive Him as Savior.

Jeff and I caught an early morning flight to California to be with the family as they surrounded Mom’s hospital bed. When we arrived we were informed that Mom had cried out and told Dad to move aside, because there was a man standing behind him. No one else in the room could see this man, so they were sure it was an angel, or Jesus. Over the next three days we never left her side, and we worshipped, proclaimed Scripture, told stories and laughed and wept, and whispered over and over into Mom’s ear how much we loved her, and how much Jesus loved her.

Just a few hours before she slipped into unconsciousness, Dad and I leaned over Mom, and with an intensity of tenderness and emotion that was palpable—and surprising given her weakened state—she murmured “I love you!” Dad began to quietly cry, and said “I love you too, Sweetheart; and Jesus loves you and wants to take you home to be with Him.”

I have rarely in my life experienced such fullness of surrender and power in a single word as I felt when Mom gently looked at us and said “Okay.” In that simple, whispered syllable, I heard and knew in my spirit that she had submitted herself just like Mary, mother of Jesus, did as she stood before Gabriel: “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). Together, we watched Mom’s heart surrender to God before she left us to be with Him.

It was the most beautiful and bittersweet time our family has ever had. It was truly “life-changing” for each of us as we watched a miracle unfold before our eyes. Forty years of prayers were being fulfilled in a three-day period, as Mom’s spirit was resurrected from death to life. The peace in the room and on her face was unmistakable. Her hospital room became a place of healing for the entire family.

As I’ve spend the past week with our precious family recounting this miracle again and again, I became aware that this was just one of the many miracles that will be fulfilled. It has been prophesied that we have entered a time of unprecedented miracles, and I believe that we witnessed one of them this week. There are prayers and promises that have been contended for by God’s sons and daughters for many years, and they will suddenly be fulfilled before their eyes. They will look upon these miracles and shake their heads in awe and disbelief as they suddenly come to pass.

It will be as if the bowls in Heaven that hold the prayers of the saints have been filled to capacity and are suddenly overflowing with the long awaited answers. Though the fulfillment of some of our deepest and most anguished prayers have appeared delayed, we have kept the Lord as our delight and He is giving us the desires of our hearts.

“Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms‬ ‭37:4‬ ‭

I know that our family’s personal testimony is the “spirit of prophesy” for your coming miracle. Do not lose hope and hold fast to your delight in the Lord. He is able!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭

Can You Help Us?

Dear Friends,

We were on a ministry trip to Washington State when we received news that our beautiful mom was rushed to the hospital. It appears that she may not make it through this day and has been calling out for all of her children to be with her.

We quickly booked a flight out of Seattle and will be with her today (if she holds on).

This is both an unexpected turn of events and we need help to cover the costs of getting our family to her side. We don’t normally ask directly for help but if you would prayerfully consider sowing into this time that is precious and tender we’d so appreciate it.

Also, please pray for our mom’s salvation. We have been praying and the entire extended family is ministering to her at her bedside. We believe we have a promise of her salvation.

Thank you!

Let Hope Arise

Kathi Pelton

I was on a prayer assignment with a team this week and before we went out we were hearing the verse from Hebrews 6:19-20,

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭

What promise are we hoping for? It is found in the verse prior,

“…saying, ‘Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.’” Hebrews 6:14

As we went out on our prayer assignment, every place we went we saw anchors. God was declaring hope over His people and over our nation.

The thief (Satan) is the one who plots and plans how to break through the stronghold of hope to devour the believer. Yet, we know that though he comes to kill, steal, and destroy that we have the hope and assurance of abundant life in Jesus (John 10:10).

This “hope” is not wishful thinking or a foolish desire; it is an anchor that secures you to His promise. It is so sure and weighty that as long as you have hope you are unmovable. The waves will not cause you to drift into the enemy’s fury. Our hope is absolute assurance!

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1

The large anchor that holds a ship in place cannot be seen when it is firmly planted in the deep foundations of the sea floor, and yet it is what holds the ship in place; it secures it. If hope is our anchor then it is also embedded in the unseen, and yet it is what holds us securely in place.

In the book, “Anne of Green Gables,” there is a moment where Anne is in despair and declares that she has no hope, to which her adoptive mother Miranda sternly rebukes her,

“To lose hope is to turn your back on God.”

It sounds harsh and yet how true it is! Every time I’ve ever been tempted to lose hope I remember that quote. Why would I sever my life from the anchor that holds me to His love and His promise to bless and multiply me?

God made this promise to Abraham as well. Abraham was counted as righteous because he had faith in the One who promised to bless him and multiply him.

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:8-10‬ ‭

Jesus, our Anchor, is the builder and maker—the great architect—of all of the plans and promises over our lives, families, and lands. We can put our hope in the “Author and Finisher” of our hope and faith.

Abraham faced many trials along the journey to his promise and yet, even as he wavered at times, he never lost hope or severed himself from the anchor. God blessed and multiplied him and we are the offspring of Abraham…his promise is an “inheritance promise” to all who have put their hope in God.

You may be facing trials and feel a bit tossed by the waves, but do not lose hope. Do not turn your back on God! You are secured in His love and the promise that He gave to Abraham now belongs to you,

“I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies.”

Your anchor of hope is sure!
