He Delights In Helping You!

By Kathi Pelton

During a past season of refinement that I was going through, I had began praying prayers that were not familiar to my ears. They were prayers that resembled begging— they sounded like the voice of an orphan not a daughter. Since some of my needs during that time stemmed from my own mistakes, unbelief and “taking matters into my own hands”, I felt deserving of the burdens that I was carrying. I found myself apologizing to God constantly and agonizing over the fact that I’d made some choices that brought about personal hardships. My prayers went from “Thank you Father…” to “Please help God…”

One night while I was struggling with guilt, worry and regrets over my predicament I began apologizing once again and praying (begging) this way, “Please help me God…” Immediately the Lord interrupted me. He said, “Daughter, why are you praying like an orphan when you are a loved daughter?”

I replied, “Because I acted out of doubt and unbelief and now I’m paying the price. I knew better!”

With such love and compassion He spoke again, “When one of your children make a bad choice, even when they knew better, do you withhold love or help when they truly apologize and need your help out of their troubles?”

I answered, “No, I run to their aid and comfort their hurting hearts. I restore them to peace, to sonship and purity. I don’t think twice about it!”

He said, “Do you not know that I am far more patient with you? Do you know that My love for you far exceeds your love for your children? And do you not understand that it is My delight to help you?”

That night my prayer changed! It went from begging God for help to thanking Him that He takes delight in helping me. My heart released the heavy burden of the responsibility for my failure. When I repented I was released from the burden and Jesus took it upon Himself. I allowed the rain of His love to wash away the guilt, the shame, the regret and the orphan spirit that had taken hold of my heart. He baptized me anew in His mercy, grace and love. He restored my place as His daughter.

Whether what you are facing is by the fault of your own choices or even merely by circumstances beyond your control— know this: He takes delight in both helping you and comforting you! You are His beloved child and His greatest longing is to be near to you, comfort you and help you. He does not want you to suffer under burdens that you were not meant to carry. Just as a natural parent would carry something too heavy for their child to bear or pick them up to carry them when they are too tired to walk on, so will your Heavenly Father. He far exceeds any human love or compassion— even that of a father or mother.

I awoke this morning feeling the depths of His love and compassion for those who feel separated from Him because of the grief of their own failings or choices. He longs to take from you all that you cannot bear. He takes delight in helping you and setting you free. Turn your words from the words of a beggar back to the words of one who knows they are a loved son or daughter.

When my kids come to me feeling broken and burdened, I drop everything to do everything I can to both comfort and help them. God is doing that for you right now. The amazing thing is that He has no limits in His ability to help and He knows exactly what to do to comfort you. As a parent I am limited in my abilities— He is not! He dispatched angels on your behalf , He opens the doors of Heaven’s storehouse, He comes as Comforter, Redeemer, Deliverer and holds nothing back.

Thank Him! Thank Him that He delights in helping you! Thank Him that He loves you and has taken you as His own child! Don’t beg but go to Him knowing that He takes great delight in you.

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

Stay In The Now

Today, as I was praying, I was taken into a vision where I saw a man standing in “today” (the now) but his soul

was in yesterday and tomorrow; he was absent from where he was actually standing— in the NOW. His focus on yesterday was keeping him stuck in regrets and disappointments and his obsession with tomorrow was drawing him into heavy burdens, dread, and fear. As I looked at him I could see the Lord calling to him to come and enjoy the day He had planned for him; a day filled with grace, joy, love and peace. It was a table set before him with such detail and love. But, he had become so accustomed to not living in the “now” or even in the day that the Lord had given him that he had lost his peace and his joy. He had not enjoyed the delicacies that were set before him for a very long time.

Then I saw the Lord go into his yesterday and wash away the pain, the regrets and the disappointments that had clung to him like a cold, wet garment.

Then I saw the Lord go into His tomorrow and He sent forth angels to prepare the way to bless and prosper him in all his ways. He then washed the dread, worry and fear from him with a peace that surpassed this man’s understanding.

Tomorrow’s table had no provision upon it because the Lord had not set it for him yet.

Then He wrapped him in a clean, white garment and drew him back into today. As this man left his past and entrusted his tomorrow to the Lord’s perfect care he was able to enter into the amazing grace that the Lord had set for him that day. This man began to laugh with joy. Relief from the sorrows of yesterday and the burdens of tomorrow flooded his soul while peace, rest, and a lightness filled him like a long, deep breath.

The Lord is resetting those who have been dealing with great anxiety, depression, and fear. Allow Him to minister to the pains of yesterday and the fears of tomorrow while drawing you into the beauty of today.

This is a work of His Spirit that He is doing even now. Stop and take the time to be with Him; allowing Him to do this deep work within you. There is such peace and rest in abiding trust. There is amazing grace that sets you free from having to figure it all out in your own strength. There is joy in the surrender as you put your faith in His perfect care.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34

STAY IN THE NOW!

Ask the Lord to remove your soul from the regrets of yesterday and the burdens of tomorrow. He has gone before you to prepare a future and hope for you so you do not need to worry.

He has prepared a table for you today and it has everything you need for the day. Does a mother set out food for her family that is to be eaten tomorrow? No, it will spoil if it’s set out before meal time. She only puts out what is for now. God does the same for you. You were never supposed to live on yesterday’s spoiled food or sit at tomorrow’s table that has not yet been set for you yet. There is so much to enjoy today—enter into your now!

Honor The Lord and Watch Him Bring Victory To The Battle You Are Facing

By Kathi Pelton

I absolutely love the story in 2 Chronicles 20! In this story Jehoshaphat has been informed that a vast army is approaching to attack his land and his people. He is terrified and calls for the people to fast and pray. Then he prays and reminds the Lord that they established a temple in the land to honor His name and that their trust is in His name alone. The people once again cry out to the Lord to spare them from the vast approaching army and the Lord speaks through one of their prophets saying,

“He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow, march out against them. You will find them coming up through the ascent of Ziz at the end of the valley that opens into the wilderness of Jeruel. 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 ‭20:15-17‬ ‭

The next morning they go out, sending worshippers ahead and as soon as they begin to sing the enemy armies turn on themselves and fight one another until not one is left alive.

As all the people of Judah and Jerusalem saw the Lord Himself defeat the vast army they rejoiced greatly. They also spent three full days gathering all the plunder left by the defeated armies. They rejoiced with song, dance and great joy as they entered Jerusalem carrying the plunder!

What stands out to me in this story above all else is that it began with honor! When they returned to their land from exile they set up a temple to honor the name of the Lord. It was the statement over their nation and their people that said, “In God We Trust!” When they heard that enemies were approaching to take their land they immediately turned to honor the Lord and they turned their trust toward Him once again. Yes, they were afraid but even within their human fears they honored the Lord and trusted in His faithfulness.

I believe that this story is a “testimony for today!” Many are facing approaching enemies, vast armies and even “sure defeat.” But you are a temple of the Lord and your life has been established to bring Him honor. Your posture in the midst of human fears and even what appears to be a pending defeat is to decree, “In God I trust!”

I hear the Lord speaking to you, just as He did to Jehoshaphat, saying, “This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s…”

Honor the Lord with your posture, your trust, your prayers, your faith in the midst of fears and then sing and declare, “Give thanks to the Lord, for His faithful love endures forever!” (2 Chronicles 20:21)

God spoke through His prophet to them that they were not to be afraid and they believed the word of the Lord and acted on it (2 Chronicles 20:20). They went out to face an enemy too large to defeat with only the word of the Lord and their trust put in that word (and in His faithfulness!).

Do not hear the word of the Lord and then run away in defeat. You can go forth and face your dread enemies knowing that, as you have honored Him with your trust and faith, He will battle for you and defeat all of your enemies. You will watch as God fights for you. You will even be left with more “plunder” than you can carry!

This is a word for God’s people individually and corporately. It is for households and for nations. It is for all who honor the Lord even when their very lives are threatened and their land is being invaded.

Put your face low to the ground in humble honor, dependency and begin to pray. Cry out to the One who’s love endures forever and then follow His instructions. Sing of His love and as He leads go to the battlefield with songs of praise leading the way. Then watch what He does! Watch as your enemy turns on himself and destroys all that was planned to destroy you! Watch as the Lord fights for you and watch as you return home carrying the plunder of provisions.

Honor Him! Honor Him when you are afraid! Believe in His words through the prophets and believe in His faithful love that endures forever. Though your enemy is vast and defeat appears sure; trust the Lord and what He is saying! Go out and face them knowing that the battle is the Lord’s!

“Give thanks to the Lord; His faithful love endures forever!”

His Heartbeat Is Your Breakthrough!

by Kathi Pelton

Over the past few weeks I have begun to hear the sound of the heartbeat of God during times of worship. Each time this happens the beat (rhythm) awakens the atmosphere with life, healing, light, love and breakthrough.

Then the Lord began to show me another aspect of the sound of His heartbeat. Twice now, when I have heard the sound, I was taken up to see what it is doing to the darkness and strongholds over lives and regions. When the sound of His heartbeat comes into a room and it is recognized and partnered with it becomes the force of a battering ram against strongholds of darkness. It is the sound of breakthrough!

When two hearts are joined as one there is something that happens– oneness, unity, alignment, agreement and strength. When the pulse of God’s love is joined with the longing of His bride it changes atmospheres, transforms lives and breaks through demonic strongholds and assignments. The joining of His heart and our hearts breaks down walls of division!

During some recent gatherings the worship leaders began to sing prophetically the words, “Do you hear what I hear? Do you see what I see?” As they sang these words the sound of His heartbeat was heard in the room and dividing walls broke down, ushering in a oneness with God and one another. As we heard the sound of His heartbeat we also saw the sound pounding the forces of darkness like a battering ram to knock down the strongholds that opposed God and His people.

Ask the Lord to open your eyes to see and your ears to hear the beat of His heart. Then join your heart to His and watch what happens! Watch as oneness of hearts break the divisions and watch the sound breakthrough the resistance! First love will be awaken, great joy will fill your heart and families will be restored.

Do you hear what I hear? It’s the sound of the Bridegroom and His bride becoming one heart…the sound of His sons and daughters becoming one family!

What Is God Doing?

By Kathi Pelton

As I was flying cross country today I felt the Spirit ask me to share with you some things that have been highlighted to me as we’ve entered 2020. There is more but I’d like to share these specific ones with you so that you can both identify (confirm) His work in your life regarding these areas and so that you can begin to pray for these things personally, for your loved ones and for the body of Christ.

Here are the eight that I’d like to highlight and further explain for now:

Rest In Christ: This is a “rest in your soul” that comes with abiding in the surrendered trust in your Father’s love. It heals trauma, brings peace and breaks fear/anxieties.

By My Spirit: Zechariah 4:6 has been highlighted as a key verse for this era. As we rest in Him (laying down our might & power) it makes room for the sovereignty of His Spirit to accomplish the impossible; giving ALL glory to God!

Jubilee: I keep hearing that we are about to see “miraculous jubilees “ take place. These will set many free from the enslavement of financial debt. It will cause prisoners to be set free and heavy weights to be removed from the backs of God’s people.

Holiness: A hunger for holiness is building and growing that is causing authentic “Godly sorrow” that ushers permanent change (repentance) and sets people free from regret, guilt and condemnation.

Clean Hands/Pure Hearts: “The pure in heart will see God.” A washing of hearts and hands is now happening! It is like a fresh baptism in purity. This is causing a purification of heart motives and reforming movements.

Return To First Love: The revelation of the agape love of God is beginning to fall upon the Church (His Bride) that will awaken her to first love. This “first love” will cause a sound that is like a pounding heart but will act as a battering ram against hatred and darkness. It is the sound of full abandonment to His desires. Worship and prayer movements will carry this sound and will become the thing that goes before what He is doing in the earth (evangelism, healing, deliverance, salvations, nations shifting, etc.)

The Government of God On Earth: The bride has been crowned with authority (such as Queen Esther). The King’s scepter has been extended and He is awaiting her requests so that He might grant them. Her voice and requests will set people groups and nations free. The signet ring has been placed on modern day Mordecai’s who will carry out what the King has spoken (and His Bride has decreed). This is establishing a governmental authority upon the church like has not been seen before. The earth’s governments will even be subject to the authority released through the mouths of God’s people.

Family, Unity & Oneness: Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21-23 is beginning to be made manifest. This is a sovereign act of God that merely requires humility! Preference of others, being family, praying rather than judging differences, and surrender are purifying (fertilizing) the soil that is making this possible.

There is so much more! What a magnificent time it is to be alive in Christ! Make these points (themes) points of prayer and meditation each day.

Prophesy The Good Report and Watch Your Miraculous Breakthrough Happen!

By Kathi Pelton

We are living in times that could “knock the wind” out of the strongest and most resilient men and women. Looking at the world around us truly is like reading a bad report. There are constant natural disasters (fires, floods, famine), there are acts of terrorism that are unthinkable and acceptance of the most horrific crimes against humanity such a “full term abortions” that are unashamedly called “a woman’s right!” and Christian’s are being persecuted around the world.

As believers we could easily look at the world around us and want to concede defeat. But we do not take our cues or perspective from the world around us but rather from the One who rules and reigns over all.

We must look beyond the natural realm to see, hear and then speak (declare/prophesy) what the Holy Spirit is saying. This is where you will find encouragement for your heart, rest for your soul and the hope that carries you into victory after victory; breakthrough after breakthrough.

When the children of Israel passed into the Promise Land they knew that the natural report was that “taking the land would be impossible!” Well, that very scenario, to the believer, should be your greatest hope! Why? Because that is where we see God show up the most frequently! He is the God of the impossible (not improbable). But He waits for a people who will partner with Him to receive the instructions (that more often than not look completely foolish to the world) that will bring forth the victory.

Over and over during this first month of the new decade I have heard in my spirit the words from Zechariah 4:6, “Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit says the Lord.” The good report aligns us with the work of His Spirit to accomplish the impossible while partnering with His people to be the conduits of foolish obedience that ushers in impossible results.

When God’s people came upon the fortified city of Jericho; it’s walls, guards and strength spoke a very bad report! If they were to have stopped and merely looked with their eyes at what was being faced; they would have conceded defeat before even starting. But God had a good report that involved acts of faith and obedience that “in the natural” (apart from “by His Spirit”) would merely result in making them look very foolish and becoming a mockery to their enemies.

To be “strangers in a new land” and show up to your first battle by walking around the city seven times and then release a shout must have looked like absolute foolishness. I’d imagine that the guards and rulers of Jericho must have looked on and thought, “Really, that’s all you’ve got?!” No weapons, battering rams, armored warriors…just men, women and children walking in circles?

But they were waking in Zechariah 4:6! They were obediently making room for “by my Spirit” to accomplish the impossible! There was no act of might, no human power being displayed but merely a people who saw beyond the natural realm and listened to the voice of their God and became surrendered vessels to make room for a “by my Spirit” victory to occur.

After the seventh lap around Jericho the people used their voices to release the sound of victory and just as the Lord promised, “Jericho’s fortified walls came tumbling down!” This struck fear into the hearts of their enemies throughout the land. The voice of faith became louder than the voice of mockery. It was the sound of a people who believed that “by my Spirit” the impossible can happen!

Too many Christians have been receiving the bad report about their personal lives, their cities and their nations by “reading the circumstances!” If the impossible is standing before you then it’s time to get excited because that is where God most often will bring a “by my Spirit” miracle! But he does look for a people who trust Him enough to believe His good report and will act on it! He is calling a Joshua and Caleb army to arise and take the land!

When my family arrived in the Washington DC region two weeks ago to live (at the Lord’s request) it was an impossible situation from the very start! We didn’t have the money, the means, the “invitation” or even the physical strength for a 3000 mile move. Everywhere we looked we saw “impossible” barriers. But as we saw the impossible, heard the good report and began to surrender step by step to His instructions. And what happened far exceeded our wildest expectations!

Now we have arrived (we are living in Northern Virginia)! But we arrived to a state that just elected a governor who is so extremely liberal that he condones taking the life of a baby if it survives a late term abortion! We have arrived in this region during an impeachment trial, during a time where our president is hated with vile hatred by the media and by the most vocal Americans, and during a time where our nation seems more divided then since the time of the Civil War. But guess what? We have heard the good report! We have heard a good report that in the midst of division we will see a John 17:21-23 unity miracle occur. We may be strangers in the land who have just crossed over in the midst of many giants (we may look like grasshoppers in comparison) and fortified walls but we have a “by my Spirit” promise!

We are not coming with might or power but with yielded and surrendered lives so that we can hear the good report, receive the instructions (even if they seem and look foolish!) and join with like-minded people who will be those conduits of surrender that make way for a “by my Spirit” miracle!

Are there fortified “impossibilities” that you are personally facing? If so, now is not the time to lose hope or give up! It is not the time to allow the anxiety of pending defeat to rob you of your faith! Now is the time to hear the good report and prophesy it over your impossible circumstance! Declare Zechariah 4:6 over your situation and then hear and obey even the most foolish thing. But be sure to let your voice be louder than the voice of opposition! Let a victory shout rise up so that you are raised up out of a posture of defeat (the tomb of dread). Stop seeing the impossible as your death sentence or sure defeat! It is your invitation into victory and breakthrough.

There is a supernatural rest in this posture because it doesn’t require your might, power or strength…it merely requires your faith! Will you dare to believe the good report or will you live according to what the impossible dictates? Will you remain in Egypt (under a master that enclaves you to hard labor) or will you move into the Promise Land of your inheritance and believe that as you hear and obey that “by His Spirit” the breakthrough and victory will come?

Let the spirit of Joshua and Caleb come upon you and arise in faith! Put on the shield of faith and go take the land of your inheritance! Take back rest for your soul, take back the land of promise, take back the peace that surpasses understanding, take back your hope, joy and victory! Take the good report and watch the walls that stand between you and your promise fall. Now is the time for breakthrough after breakthrough!

Do You Need Relief From Fear? Here’s What The Lord Told Me…

By Kathi Pelton

I battled fear for many years! It was a gripping fear that would consume me and rob me from experiencing joy. I would obey (say yes) to the Lord and then as I began to walk it out I’d be gripped by a soulish terror that was traumatizing. A number of years ago God brought me through a season of healing and freedom from this “spirit of fear.” It was a process of learning trust and peace but because we live in this world there is always the temptation or opportunity to allow fear to return.

When God recently called our family to move from the West Coast to Virginia (we arrived less than a week ago) and live in the Washington DC region I have to admit that the challenges and obstacles that were before us to make this move where an “invitation to become fearful.” The day we said “yes” was filled with some anxious moments as I dealt with my soul. When I took my anxious thoughts before the Lord, He took me into a vision. In this vision I saw the disciples on the deck of the boat in the midst of the storm (Mark 4:35-41) while Jesus slept in the stern of the boat. The disciples were in a fearful panic for their very lives! As I saw this scene the Lord spoke to me and said,

“Daughter, you have two choices; you can live on the deck of fear, focusing on the storm, or you can find where I am and come rest with Me.”

Jesus was not going to let anything happen to His disciples because He knew that the Father was watching over Him (then). In this story, He gave us a beautiful and powerful example of His posture in sudden storms— rest! Just as He rested in the care of His Father, we too, can rest in the shadow of His wing in the midst of the storms.

As we walked through the process of a complete life change, location change (3000 miles from anything familiar), leaving our youngest son, our church, our dearest friends, our home and saying yes to a new financial demand (and spiritual atmosphere) that would take the stretching of our faith once again— I decided to allow my soul to rest with Jesus in the stern of the boat. Though there has been a constant demand on my physical body; my soul (my heart, mind and emotions) needed to be at rest.

If you are experiencing fear, anxiety or a sudden storm— find where Jesus is and let your soul abide with Him there! The “deck of fear” is where the storm will beat against you relentlessly! It will scream defeat with every crashing wave. But there is an invitation into the hidden place (beneath the deck…in the stern) where your soul can find rest.

This is your promise and this is the stern of the boat where you will find rest:

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on 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 ‭91:1-16‬

The key is where you dwell! If you choose to live on the deck, trying to save yourself, you will experience the crashing waves but if you will go into the place of abiding in Him with absolute surrender to trusting in Him— you will find rest for your soul and be free from the fear of the day’s arrows and of night’s terrors. Because He loves you, He will rescue you!

Leave the deck of fear and allow you soul to find Jesus and find rest. There is joy in the absence of fear. There is peace in the presence of Jesus! ————————————————–

The Waters Are Parting

By Kathi Pelton

The body of Christ is in a time of a corporate “crossover.” Whether it involves a geographical move, a career move, or a ministry move…it really doesn’t matter because there is a corporation “spiritual move” that is happening for all. This is a move of His Spirit that aligns us with God’s times and seasons. Though we can prophetically describe what we are seeing and sensing, no one really knows what is on the other side.

Some prophets are prophesying the greatest move of God the earth has ever seen and others are prophesying the overcoming of the darkest hours ever known but I’d like to suggest that it’s most likely not either/or but both/and.

In Psalm 23 we read the words, “He prepares a table for you in the presence of my enemies.” This may be the most accurate description of what is on the other side. I believe that we are in the midst of this massive crossover. We aren’t on the shores of where we were nor are we on the other side but we are crossing over on supernatural dry ground in the midst of what should overcome us or prevent us from getting to the other side.

The Father has set a table for us and had rung the dinner bell for all to come and feast at His table. It will be in the presence of our enemies. That does not need to cause you fear because God is with you and you do not have go focus on the enemy but rather in the One who has set a table for you. The battle in this new day and new land is different so our perspective needs to adjust. We must adjust from being “enemy focused” to being “Jesus focused!”

Battles will be won by hearing and obeying in a posture of peace and rest in His victory. This is not about your spiritual strength to overcome the enemy but about allowing His strength to be made known in the midst of human weakness. David didn’t defeat Goliath because of skill or strength but because He put His trust in the name of His God and stayed true to his identity.

Jericho’s walls shouldn’t have fallen because of a shout and Goliath shouldn’t have fallen because of a stone; yet the impossible fell because men did not put their trust in their weapons or their wisdom but in the name of their God!

This is how we must live in the new land. We feast at the table of the Lord with the whole family and we watch victories come as we trust in the name of our God! It’s not about the one man or one woman but about the whole family walking in oneness with our God.

Today, Anita Alexander (an Australian prophetic voice), saw a vision of the ocean waters standing up to salute the King. She said, “Creation is saluting the King!” This was so amazing because in November I was taken into a vision of the massive crossing over that was about to occur and in this encounter the rushing river that stood between the people and the promise land stood up like a soldier and saluted the people passing through. Creation was honoring (like an honor guard) the sons and daughters of the King. I believe both visions are happening in this hour.

We are being honored as we give all the glory and honor to our King. Creation will cooperate with “making a way where there is no way!” Miracles will not just be a prophetic metaphor from past times but a reality that are seen by all in present time.

We are moving from individual anointings into a corporate anointing. The focus is no longer about the individual pieces but about the oneness of the family being joined and in their right places to fulfill the prayer of Jesus in John 17; that we would be one just as they are one! Nations will be saved because of oneness! A harvest of souls will be saved because of a “family” that has made a home for those coming in. And walls will fall because we march and shout together!

Do not be discouraged by all the shifting. Do not allow the feelings of being disoriented by the unfamiliar to stop your forward movement. As you salute and honor your King, creation is saluting you as the heirs of the King. You are crossing over and though there are battles to be won ahead; there is a table set before you in the presence of your enemies. There will be enemies but there will be feasting.

You will learn to feast in the battle and rest in the storm because the King has been given the honor He deserves. For now, the waters are parting and standing up to make way for a procession of purity to enter the new land; for it is the pure in heart who will see God!

Step forth! Your faith and obedience has opened the way!

Here are the two links: http://bit.ly/2qNqBI2 or https://www.inscribeministries.com/

THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US!

Time to Crossover!

In 24 hours our moving truck arrives! We will pack it and begin the drive from Oregon to Virginia— our new home and ministry base.

This is a huge transition with a huge price tag but the Lord asked us to go to the Washington DC region for our next assignment and we will always say, “Yes” to the One who is worthy.

Some have asked why we are raising funds if the Lord asked us to go (saying that if He asked He will provide). Our answer to that is that God made family and partnership within that family; just as we can ask for prayer, counsel, encouragement— we can also ask for financial support. God often provides through His family so that all receive a blessing.

We have spent years giving and often sacrificially, but in everything we’ve ever given we received back more than we gave. It’s how the Kingdom of God works.

Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

This has been our experience and therefore when we invite you to give, we also invite you into the overflow of His promised blessing.

On January 4th we will begin our almost 3000 mile journey across the nation to begin to enter into what the Lord has asked of us. We invite you to enter in with us through prayer and by giving a financial gift.

We have a GoFundMe page that is only $1300 from reaching its goal! Here is the link to give through our fundraiser: http://bit.ly/2qNqBI2

You can also go onto our ministry website and give through our donate button at: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

We bless you, pray for you, decree favor and abundance upon 2020 for you and your household. Thank you for standing with us and helping us reach our goal!

Your Set Back Is Your Set Up To See His Glory

By Kathi Pelton

Many of you are experiencing sudden “set backs” or what would appear to you as set backs. But the Lord has a better word for you, “Your current set back is actually a set up to see My glory come into your adversity.”

I assure you that in most cases the Lord did not cause your set back but He takes what the enemy means to harm you to set you up for a miraculous supernatural intervention— you will see His glory in your set back!

Right now our youngest daughter and her husband are traveling 2800 miles by car across the country to carry out their “yes” to go to where God is sending them. We will be joining them in just over a week. Their first day was what appeared to be set back after set back. Yet, we watched their set backs set them up to cause everything that began as a negative turned into a testimony of God’s goodness and hand upon them.

The great “I Am” is manifesting as the great “I Will!” He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself! He is the God of impossibilities and you need to know that the impossible does not frighten Him or worry Him! It merely creates a story board for the miraculous to be carried out!

We don’t go looking for set backs and we do not want to just accept attacks and delays but when God allows them to come; we can know that we are in a divine set up and we can rest in His faithfulness. The enemy wants to push you down but the Lord is saying, “Stand up and watch with joy because I Am about to break in with your breakthrough!”

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19

I have heard many teachings on this verse and some say that the original language actually depicts a picture that would say, “When the enemy comes; like a flood— the Lord comes to lift up a standard against him.” Either way works for me!

There certainly are times that it feels like we are taken off guard by a “flash flood” of negative circumstances and set backs. And yet, even then it remains even more true that the Lord will come like a flood to propel us forward and set the enemy back! His standard will be raised in the midst of adversity and impossibilities! The fear of the Lord will come upon all who see what He does for you!

Don’t be sat down or set back but stand up and watch as the Lord propels you forward with a flood of His supernatural power. I hear heaven singing the old hymn, “There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb!”

It is being sung over you while angelic help and sovereign intervention is coming to release His glory in your story!
