Restoration of Favor!

This is amazing…

Today I opened my Bible this morning and it opened to this page in the Book of Psalms. Somehow my “I VOTED” sticker from the 2020 election got in there and the backing came off and it is stuck to Psalm 85, titled, “Restoration of Favor”

I did NOT stick it there and yet it is perfectly placed with no sign of the backing paper that it was on.

During 2020 one of my constant prayers was, “Let faithful love and truth be joined together; and righteousness and peace embrace.” Or…”kiss.” (Ps. 85:10)

Psalm 85 begins with these words,

“Lord, You show favor to Your land; You restored Jacob’s prosperity. You took away Your people’s guilt: You covered all their sin.” (Vs. 1-2)

At this time of great conflict in Israel, we pray this for the Jewish people and the land of Israel. We also repent as Americans of any time and any way that we have been a part of dividing the land or standing in opposition against His people.

I love verse 8-9,

Listen to what God will say, “Surely the Lord will declare peace to His people, to His godly ones, and not let them go back to foolish ways.

His salvation is very near those who fear Him, so that glory may dwell in our land.”

As I turned to this page and saw the sticker— I felt the presence of the Lord say these words for His people in Israel and over His people in the United States. Though we are passing through this “Valley of Baca” (Trouble), we are just passing through— on our way to His house (Ps 84).

“Return to us, God of our salvation…show us your faithful love and give us Your salvation.” Amen!

Get Ready to Celebrate

By Kathi Pelton

On 5/5 I felt such a shift in the Spirit from many being “under the weight of burdens” to being lifted above the weight, regaining perspective and having their faith suddenly arise!

I woke up many times that night with a great confidence in God and in the prayers of the saints being answered— even a renewed joy as burdens lifted. I saw that many were going from a defensive posture to an offensive posture…moving ahead of their enemy rather than being pursued by him— which was creating exhaustion (this was confirmed through a phone call the next day).

The focus is changing and shifting from what the enemy is doing to what God is doing and how we can partner with him in victory! Your eyes will see what is “yet to be” as if it already is and that will cause you great joy and thanksgiving. A sure and absolute confidence will replace the weariness of hearing all of the bad reports.

I see many having a spiritual party before the manifestation of the breakthrough because you are so confident that IT WILL HAPPEN! Where it looks as though the enemy has rerouted you to a place of defeat and a “Valley of Trouble”— suddenly he will be rerouted to defeat as God overtakes his plans. A door of hope is opening before you and victory is just over the threshold of this door that stands before you.

Wisdom, knowledge and divine understanding will come to align you with success and victory. Wrong mindsets are being broken and you are being prepared to prosper in ways that you have not known. Your desert will bloom with life and fruitfulness. It seems impossible in this financial, physical and spiritual climate but God loves to do the impossible when faith arises and his people stand in unshakable and confident assurance of his faithfulness.

Your faith is being strengthened and your spirit is being awakened. A supernatural joy is coming that will astonish you because of all that is happening in the natural realm. This joy will be contagious and bring many of the lonely and depressed to the knowledge of Jesus and his saving grace. The joy of the saints will be far more contagious then any virus known to man. This joy cannot be masked and cannot be contained. This joy carries the seed of the miraculous and the faith that moves mountains.

Something is shifting and moving here in May! Depression is breaking, sorrows are fleeing, hope is arising and life will come in the place of loss.

This will be the Psalm sung by many in the days and months to come. For it is God who turns our mourning into dancing!

“I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” By your favor, O Lord, you made my mountain stand strong; you hid your face; I was dismayed. To you, O Lord, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper!” You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!” Psalm‬ ‭30:1-12‬ ‭

WE GIVE THANKS TO YOU FOREVER!

Crowned With Unending Joy

By Kathi Pelton

“…and the redeemed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow abs sighing will flee.” Isaiah 35:10

Though this verse speaks of a time “yet to come”, I believe that it is filled with strength and hope for our NOW. God has crowned the redeemed with unending and eternal joy even while living amid a world in chaos and often hopelessness.

As I read this verse this morning I felt as though I heard the Lord say,

“Come and kneel down before me so that I can crown you with unending joy that will make your hearts glad once again.”

Many of you have been filled with deep grief and sorrows that have left you weeping as you look upon what has transpired over the past two years. There has been grief, travail, sorrows that have led to repentance and unexpected losses. Yet, I sense that the Lord is inviting you to come now and receive a crown of unending joy.

This crown will cause your heart to sing and once again be filled with gladness. It will renew your mind and cause you to see beyond the natural into the supernatural hope, joy and future that is sure for those who love God and who are called, “My sons and daughters.”

I see angels surrounding you as you bow before the Lord blowing upon you with the breath of heaven— causing sorrows and sighing to flee. This angelic “breath” is blowing darkness away and breathing life and joy into you. Death is blown away and resurrection life is raising you up into unending joy.

Take a moment today to bow before Jesus as he crowns you with joy that makes your heart glad again.

A Power Washing

By Kathi Pelton

Last night I found myself in many hours of prayer throughout the night watch. I was experiencing the burden of the Lord’s heart over many lives that had become muddled in disillusionment, confusion, deceptions and even just weariness.

Though I will not go into sharing the details of the majority of the night, I did want to share a small portion of the experience because it was corporate in nature. As I was praying I suddenly began experiencing and viewing (simultaneously) what I was nothing short of a spiritual, emotional and physical “power washing” (some would call it a “pressure washing”).

The Spirit of the Lord became a power washer and he was power washing our minds, our souls, our emotions and our spirits. There were lies, accusations, doubts, cynicism, judgements, deceptions, confusions, and many other things that had been planted in minds that were tormenting souls and blocking spiritual truths and hearing.

This “power or pressure washing” was not only removing the debris of the past couple of years but even deeply rooted things that had been distorting truth, wisdom, understanding and blocking spiritual breakthroughs that the Lord desires.

I asked the Holy Spirit in that moment to come and power wash me— my mind, my heart, my body, my emotions so that my spirit is fully blessed. I began also to pray this for my children, my husband and God’s global family.

Our family owns a power washer or better known as a “pressure washer” so I know the power that is released through the enormous pressure that is released through these machines. Debris that cannot be removed through any amount of human strength or scrubbing is instantly removed when touched by the power and pressure behind the water that comes from these pressure washers.

I sensed in this experience that many have recognized areas in their minds and hearts that need washing and removal, yet no amount of their strength has been able to remove these “strongholds.”

The Lord’s grace and mercy has allowed great pressure to build so that this power washing could occur. The Spirit is using the pressure to make many willing in this hour and dependent upon him to wash them.

This is a “not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit” act. Not our might or our power but thr power of his Spirit. If the pressure has been upon you, yield to his power. The pressure is bringing many things to the surface so that his power can quickly remove them as they have been exposed.

Do not be overwhelmed by the pressure or even the exposure of things that you did not know existed in your heart. This work is for your good and for your freedom but it is done by his Spirit as we ask for him to come.

Offer him your willingness to receive this power (pressure) washing. He longs to see you free from the debris that has created blockages and strongholds. He loves you so very much!!

The Pouring Plumb Line

By Kathi Pelton

As I sat in the prayer room today I saw plumb lines drop down from heaven to earth over different individual’s lives. As it dropped the tip of these plumb lines became spouts that poured out the love of God, the oil of healing and the wine of intimacy.

As I looked upon this I saw that angels were assisting these individuals to align them directly under the spout so that they received the fullness of what the Father was pouring out. The misalignment was merely causing the person to miss the fullness of what was being poured out. As these loved ones surrendered to his longing the angels were easily able to move them under the direct flow.

Then I heard,

“Their cups will overflow. I have always intended for my sons and daughters to live in the place of the fullness that overflows.”

There is such love, compassion, restoration and healing pouring out at this time. He merely waits for the smallest “yes” to move under his downpour.

New Garments

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I suddenly became aware of the presence of many angels. These angels where descending from heaven with what looked like folded fabric in their arms. These fabrics were many different colors but all had gold threads woven throughout the hems and edges. They were thick and expensive looking materials that had the appearance of something designed for royalty.

Then, in my spirit I saw how the Accuser has been accusing many of the saints of God day and night— relentlessly. His goal was to wear them down and cause them to lose sight of their identity in Christ that had given them strength and authority to do all that they had been doing. Many had become disoriented and felt completely alone as this demonic assignment was unleashed upon them.

With every accusation it was like filth being thrown upon their white garments. Many of the saints of God were being accused with such violence and repetition that they felt cornered and traumatized from the ongoing and relentless assault.

The scene reminded me of the scene in Zechariah 3 where Satan is accusing Joshua the High Priest as he is wearing filthy garments. But just like in that story, the Lord is present and he rebukes the Accuser and calls his angels to come and change Joshua’s filthy garments to clothe him with clean ones. He restores him and instructs him in truth.

As I walked into church yesterday I became once again aware of these angels holding the folded fabric but this time I knew that they were royal garments. The Lord has rebuked the Accuser and is removing the garments that are soiled with filthy accusations (some based on truth and some not), his angels have come to put royal garments of the Lord’s righteousness and identity upon his people. These are garments that restore honor, dignity, calling, position and purity. The righteousness of Christ is covering every place of exposure and nakedness, every place of shame and failure, every place of accusation.

Each garment had also had a turban that guards your minds from the false thoughts and narrative that the enemy has unleashed. The mind of Christ and his thoughts— along with the peace of God that guards our hearts and minds is being restored to many. The torment of your mind will be replaced with peace, truth and salvation.

This has been a violent and vicious attack against many to stop the Kingdom from advancing. But an overcoming spirit is coming upon his people who will rise in even greater authority and purity than before.

The accuser has also unleashed accusations against God and against truth like no other time throughout the world. It is creating a narrative of confusion, hate, rage and division. The spirit of deception has been unleashed on a level that most of us have never witnessed. And yet, I believe that those who have had to overcome this great assignment of accusation against them will arise from this troubled place— this dark wilderness— clothed anew, purified and freed from areas of weakness or sin that was present before this great assault. They will come forth stronger and have authority over deception and accusation that will begin to set many free. They will carry a sword of the Spirit that is able to divide truth from deception and soul from spirit. They will be able to rightly divide and will be used to set many free from the division that has come to keep them from God and his truth.

They will have a spirit of overcoming that is founded in the absolute knowledge of the grace and mercy of God. They will be rescued and saved from this assignment to take them captive. But these are prisoners of hope that never abandoned the hope of Christ in the midst of this torment.

Stand still and watch the salvation of God set you free! When you’ve done all you know to do— STAND! Joshua the High Priest merely stood while the mercy of God took over to restore him.

Your identity in Christ will be even more sure than before you faced this attack. Your heart will be even more purified and your belt of truth will have been tightened!

Do not despair but stand and see the salvation of the Lord come to rescue and save you.

Now Is The Time To Live In The “True You!”

By Kathi Pelton

I hear the Spirit saying that now is the time to “shed the old skin of false identity.”

It is time to allow the Lord to put your true identity upon you. You were created in His image and carry within you His Spirit to do great things. If you are living under an identity that bring you shame, distress, insecurity or self-hatred then you are not living in His image or His design for your life.

I know someone, who for many years, denied their call as a leader and as a man of influence. During the years that he denied his true identity he found that within the church he felt virtually invisible. He also continually found great opposition in what he was doing in place of the call of God on his life. He was living an identity that no one could really recognize because it wasn’t who he truly was and what he was living just didn’t fit him. Finally this man allowed God to do a deep work in his life and he stepped out of the false identity, that was based on lies he believed, and into the true identity and call that God had for him. It was an immediate transformation for this man. All of a sudden he was visible and God quickly restored all that he was created to do. He began to walk in favor and authority, as well as fulfillment.

When we live in a way or an identity based on the lies we have believed it downgrades our lives and causes the favor that we were created to walk in to dissipate.

There are men and women throughout the world who do not know Christ but understand their true identity and they experience great favor and success but their success has an emptiness on it that always leaves them striving for greater success and fulfillment. When we know our true identity and are walking with Christ as our Savior we experience favor, success and fulfillment…as well as peace.

If you recognize that you are living a false identity that has downgraded your life and causes you to spectate life more than truly live a joyful and fulfilling life; then now is the time to shed that old skin. It’s time for your upgrade!!!

First, renounce agreement with every lie that you have believed and then ask God for His truth regarding your life. In faith believe and agree with what He reveals to you. Agreement will begin the process of stepping into your true “you”. Then begin to occupy your new and true identity by taking steps to walk in it.

Now is the time for the sons and daughters of God to arise in truth, favor and authority. Now is the time for you to arise and be the reflection of the image of Christ that you were called to display to the world.

Now is the time! Let the “true you” arise for all to see!

Receive the Rain!

By Kathi Pelton

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:10-12

Throughout scripture rain symbolizes a blessing. It comes after a drought to give life and cause new growth. Even in the flood, rain came for forty days to wash sin away from the earth that the Lord had created. God’s people are about to see a “rain of blessings” and showers of cleansing come upon them. The past twelve months have been like living in a waiting room but there is a great roar from heaven that will thunder and release a downpour of blessings, suddenlies and breakthroughs upon you (physically, emotionally and spiritually). This will touch both the individual and the corporate remnant of God.

His voice will thunder in response to the intercession, the worship and the cries of his people. In the midst of waiting and amid a global drought his people have not ceased to declare, “Our God Reigns!” Watch as he responds with his reign! March will “Go out like a Lion” (see my word on The Elijah List) because there will be a mighty roar that sounds like thunder and releases the heavy rain of blessings as his word goes forth to accomplish all that he has purposed.

Even the earth will respond with songs from the mountaintops and trees that clap with joy. A renewed peace will lead his people in the way they should go and they too, will sing a new song and clap their hands in joy.

“…See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:11-13

Though this verse says that the “rains are over and gone”— in this instance I hear the Spirit saying that the storms and gray skies that have blocked the Son are over and gone. The rains that are coming will reveal the blossoms, the early fruit and allow you to breathe in the fragrance of refreshing new life. You will run with him through the garden of life and among the orchards of fragrant fruits. You will find that he has set a table for you in the presence of your enemies. They will look and be ashamed while you feast upon the goodness of the Lord and rejoice of the intimacy that you share.

I prophesy and declare a heavy rain of blessings to come over your life and your household. I stand in agreement with the Lord for a continuous downpour that saturates your dry and barren land. I pray comfort, healing, cleansing and renewed joy upon you. May miracles mark the land of your life. May the early fruit that drips with sweetness satisfies your hunger and may the fragrance that is pleasing to your senses fill your nostrils. Breath it in while you taste and see that the Lord is good to you. The wilderness of waiting is about to turn into a green valley where still waters are always nearby to refresh you and cool you. Look up because your waiting has not been in vain.

Together we declare, “Our God Reigns!”

Don’t Stop! Victories Are Imminent

By Kathi Pelton

I woke up recently 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 what rose up in my spirit were the words, “And 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 God is mighty in battle and He deserves the glory and honor that will come forth from your life. You are the testimony of his unfailing love and mercy.

“It Is Well” The Story Behind the Song

The Story Behind the Song—

The lyrics to the song, “It Is Well With My Soul” was written by a Heratio Spafford, a successful lawyer, a loving husband, the father of five precious children and a strong Christian. This man faced more tragedy in a few short years than most do in a lifetime.

In 1871 his only son died of pneumonia at the tender age of 4. That same year, the Great Chicago Fire destroyed a large portion of his business that he’d worked so hard to build. Then in 1873, he sent his wife, Anna and four daughters to Europe for the summer holiday, a business problem preventing him from going so he planned to join them later. On the fourth day of his family’s voyage to Europe their ship collided with a barge and his four daughters perished at sea along with almost all the passengers aboard. His wife was found in the sea, clinging to a board, and was rescued. She send her husband a telegram which simply read, “Saved alone. What shall I do?”

Heratio boarded a ship to Europe to be with his wife. Four day into his voyage the captain of the ship called to him to tell him that they were passing over the place where his daughters were lost at sea. It was there that he wrote a song – “Whatever my lot, You have taught me to say – It is well, it is well with my soul.”

I don’t know what you might be facing but I do know that there is a grace given to those who choose a grateful heart. In their deepest pain, rather than blaming God they look up and take hold of an eternal truth that neither life nor death, angels or demons can take from them. God is faithful and eternity (the Kingdom of Heaven) is near.

May we, in moments of deep pain and loss, choose to look up to the One who gave his all and gain strength with a heart that puts its trust in God alone. May we too say, “It is well, with my soul.”
