Freedom From The Religion of Regret

By Kathi Pelton

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭7:10‬ ‭

This morning my “verse of the day” once again struck my spirit with such joy because it carries such freedom! Years ago the Lord spoke the words to me, “No regrets— only repentance!” The Godly sorrow that leads to repentance brings freedom from guilt, shame and regret. God disciplines His sons and daughters; He doesn’t punish them. Punishment lingers on and brings regret but God’s discipline invites us into a procession of freedom that goes from “Godly sorrow” to repentance to freedom. It sets us free to change and not repeat the same action.

I always ask Holy Spirit to replace my human sorrow (which often involves feeling sorry for myself, beating myself up, feelings of regret, defeat and shame) for true Godly sorrow that takes my hand and leads me out of captivity and into freedom. It puts me on the right path and takes me off the “hamster wheel” of repetitive sin and regrets.

You can’t make Godly sorrow come; you must ask for it. It is a work of the Spirit. Often believers will spend years in religious regret which robs them of joy and enslaves them to human effort rather then asking the Spirit of the Lord for the gift of “Godly sorrow.”

“Not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord.

We have entered a time of great deliverance from religious regrets. That has been a spiritual Egypt for so many with a hard taskmaster ruling over their souls. Some have spent their lives in this land of regret. But true Godly sorrow, which lasts but a day and sets the captives free will come upon those that have been oppressed with guilt, regret and condemnation…which is not repentance! Your Deliverer has come to set you free!

If you’ve been caught in this cycle (even for decades) then exchange your human sorrow for Godly sorrow. Ask the Holy Spirit for a divine and supernatural exchange. Shake off religious regrets and allow the sorrow that will lead you to salvation and freedom!

I speak over you what the Spirit spoke over me many years ago, “NO REGRETS— only repentance!”

Be free in Jesus mighty name!

A Night To Remember and Rejoice

by Kathi Pelton

The third night of Hanukkah this year is coinciding with Christmas Eve— the eve of our Savior’s birth. As we remember another night of the miraculous light that burned in the temple we also remember the announcement of the angels that the miracle of a virgin giving birth would bring light into the world.

Luke 2:8-20 –And in the same area there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And then an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were very afraid. But the angel said to them, “Listen! Do not fear. For I bring you good news of great joy, which will be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find the Baby wrapped in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

“Suddenly there was with the angel a company of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest,and on earth peace, and good will toward men.”

Good news of great joy! This light, who’s name is Jesus, has never dimmed or stopped burning. The oil of His love, joy, grace, mercy and kindness still fills the temple and the hearts of all who believe. All the earth us filled with His glory.

Tonight as our family lights the third candle we will remember our Savior and the eve of His birth; his young mother had no room to lay her head as she prepared to bring forth the greatest gift known to mankind. We will remember that He came, He lived among us, He revealed His Father to us and He paid the price for our sin in order to reconciled us to God. Tonight will bask in the joyous and triumphant miracle of His resurrection on the third day!

We join with all the angles to announce “tidings of great joy” to a world that is searching for true joy. Because He lives we now have become a light that shines in the darkness with the miraculous oil of His love and salvation. The miracle oil still burns today. Joy to the world— the LORD HAD COME, let earth receive her King!

The hope of Israel came! He came as a miraculous light in the form of a tiny baby. Yet, the government rests upon His shoulders and His Kingdom has no end. Rejoice, rejoice…Emmanuel has come and is with us always!

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice. From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6-7

Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Hanukkah!

In My Weakness He Becomes So Strong!

By Kathi Pelton

Have you ever been in the midst of God launching you into new and amazing things and suddenly you are hit with the reality of your own weakness so strong that it knocks you to your knees? That is my life currently.

It’s not a bad place because it increases dependency, breaks boundaries that you didn’t know you had and humbles you to enter into the new place in a posture of being bowed down and transformed.

Each time that the Lord has brought me into something new it has required a new level of faith and trust. Of course it is such an honor to be chosen, to be called, to be asked to “go for Him”…but it requires not only my “yes” but my surrender, my death to self and the severing of any dependency on my “gifting.”

The other day I found myself in one of those “knock you to your knees” moments. Suddenly I felt as though I ran full force into a brick wall. It hit so hard that I began weeping. I asked the Lord, “What was that?” His answer took me to my knees. He said, “It’s the comfort boundary that your ‘yes’ hit.”

Oh my heart! I was immediately undone. I am keenly aware of my propensity to deeply desire comfort, traditions, the familiar and a “picket fence” life. This is probably why God keeps me from a life of human comforts; He is jealous for my heart. But in this particular moment I realized that my faith had a comfort boundary or picket fence that looked like “great faith” to the outsider but still created a limited habitation for my God that my transition had hit.

Creating a boundary wasn’t a conscious decision but when I became aware of it I also was immediately aware of every lingering insecurity, weakness and fear that existed beyond the boundary I had set. I felt cripple and it crumbled me to the ground all day long. It wasn’t condemnation but rather a dismantling of securities that are not founded in Him.

As I looked at these weaknesses and these limitations I could only weep. Then I bundled them up and carried them to the feet of Jesus. As I laid them before Him I could only bow low before my humble King. I presented my pain, my fears, my desires for the “safe road”, my weaknesses and then asked Him to be King over them.

Suddenly I was filled with strength that was so sovereign that it reminded me of when Daniel was in the presence of the Angel of the Lord and it took him to his knees,

“Then the one who looked like a man touched me again, and I felt my strength returning.” Daniel 10:18

My strength returned and I was able to get up. Then I was given courage to move beyond the familiar boundaries that my soul had erected. I felt courage imparted to me, His love filled me and His goodness carried me beyond what I had known.

Human weakness is merely the fertile soil for the strength of Christ to be made known and displayed. Throughout my life there have been key seasons where God has prepared to go beyond where I am comfortable and each time it is as if the Lord has bought a field just beyond what I’ve known and invites me to expand my boundaries to be planted there. It is usually a field that is untouched and needs great work before it can receive seed.

When I say yes this becomes the field where I my life is once again tilled, weeds are pulled (roots of weeds are removed), stones are removed, hard ground is softened and fertilizer is added. It’s a messy process and I long for the fruit of the familiar field behind me. But this process prepares me to bear new fruit and to know Him in greater ways; and to trust Him more.

If you are in the grip of the crippling reality of your personal weakness, then allow yourself to fall at His feet. Bring all of your lack, your fears, your pain and your insecurities and place them at His feet. He can turn anything into an offering of praise. Watch as He turns the broken pieces into beauty and the weakened places into strength and courage. Christ in you will become your strength and your song. You will find yourself moving beyond the boundaries that you have known and dancing on the heads of giants that mocked the “God in you!”

It’s okay to cry, to feel weakness and to be afraid…but you must not stop there! You must fall at His feet and present even what doesn’t seem beautiful to you. He makes all things presented to Him beautiful.

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

It’s Time For Your Earthly Circumstances to Align With Heaven

By Kathi Pelton

I feel something rising up in my spirit! It’s the sound of things suddenly and dramatically shifting. It is the sound of your earthly circumstances that have been held out of alignment by demonic forces to suddenly be pushed back; everything comes into alignment with heaven.

The enemy has greatly feared the posture of surrender in your life, the “yes” you have given to the Lord and the authority you are willingly stepping into. He has sent battalions of demons to thwart all who are transitioning into new positions and new mantels. They have held you back and caused the very circumstances needed to make the transition to become a raging river of resistance.

But watch what happens now! I hear the sounds of heaven’s army forming together. I heard the Spirit say the words, “My artillery regiment has arrived with ‘weapons of war’ that will defeat those who have been sent against My people.”

Even now those that have held you back and caused your earthly circumstances to be out of alignment with heaven’s provisions and resources are being defeated. The sound I hear is like when heavy equipment is pulling two weighty pieces of metal into place and connectivity. Though the enemy could not touch heaven he has been able to touch your circumstances which caused everything to become misaligned. But now the shift from defeat to victory has arrived and everything needed to be aligned with heaven for your transition now comes!

The transition needs full alignment with heaven to “cause everything to work together for good” or “sync up” (align).

Doors will now suddenly swing wide open, new provisions will suddenly break through, new forms of resources that have been unknown to you will suddenly appear, positions will come available, heavenly favor will come upon you and like the gears of a clock coming together (wheels within wheels) you will be aligned with heaven’s provisions and timing.

No man will take credit because is will be so supernatural and so miraculous that only God will receive the glory. What the enemy meant for evil has set up the perfect scenario for the Lord to receive all the glory. Your impossible will become the miracle that reveals His goodness. He will display His might and power as He commands this heavenly artillery regiment into a great victory that causes “all to cross over together!”

Stand up! Go to the riverbank of the obstacle that is standing in the way of your cross over. Step into the rushing water and watch as it stands up like a soldier that stops to salute you as you pass by. Honor is being given to you as you pass over. I see you being saluted as you transition to the other side. God is not only being given glory but He is commanding honor to be shown to you and metals of honor to be pinned upon you. Your rank is being elevated and your authority is being upgraded.

“Who can stop the Lord Almighty?”

He Is Mightier Than The Storm That Rages Against You

by Kathi Pelton

“But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these!” Psalms‬ ‭93:4‬ ‭

Has your life been impacted by violent winds and waves sent to knock you off of your feet? If so, know this…THE LORD IS MIGHTIER THAT THAT WHICH HAS BEEN SENT AGAINST YOU!

I felt my spirit rise up this morning as I declared, “I am arising in the might of my God!” My life was personally hit hard over the past six weeks with waves that sought to knock me over! But what they’ve done is knock me to my knees where I found the strength of my God!

“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

He is mighty to save you! You may feel knocked down but you are not knocked out! It’s time to shake off the disorienting and stunning hits you took and rise up “in His strength and might!”

This is your “Rocky” moment! The enemy is rejoicing and dancing in victory just a bit too soon. He thinks you’re down for the ten count but suddenly I hear the count go from “one, two, three, four, five…” to “five, four, three, two, one!” There is a reversal and I see God’s people rising up in victory. As the count is reversed the sound is like liver punches upon the enemy that is taking him down by the might of God. As you are rising up, your enemy is going down!

“…It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” Zechariah 4:6

The battle belongs to the Mighty One; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Suddenly you will rise and laughter and joy will fill you with renewed strength. There will be no trauma left, no mark left of what hit you because there is a supernatural reversal.

Get ready to rise and finish 2019 with a unprecedented victory! You may have been the underdog but because you have put your hope in the Lord, He is coming in might and power to save you and restore you.

If you are down today after a “knock down blow”, while you’re down begin to declare, “I will arise in the might of my God!” The listen as the ten count is reversed and the victory is yours.

—————————————————–

Stand up with us today and sow into your victory! We have been doing some extreme sowing because this is reversing the wave of lack sent by the enemy against many. Join us by sowing into the reversal of lack to abundance. Give wherever the Lord leads you. If you’d like to sow into our ministry go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

You Are Being Lifted Out Of The Pit

By Kathi Pelton

I saw a vision this morning of the great cloud of witnesses cheering and rejoicing as angel armies broke through enemy resistance lines and arrived to lift up believers out of deep pits that they’d been held down in. I knew this had been a prolonged battle but the breakthrough had come!

As I saw these angels pulling God’s people up from these deep pits they were rising from them fully dressed in royal armor that marked them with the”King’s Seal of Authority”. They were not weakened by the time in the pit but they were full of spiritual health, purity, authority and wore His faithfulness like full body armor. Their time in the pit had made them stronger and full of light and passion for their God!

Lift up your arms because angels are now arriving to pull you up. You are arising from the deep, dark place with honor, favor and new authority. What the enemy meant for evil will now become your upgrade!

The Shout That Releases A Heavenly Rescue Mission

By Kathi Pelton

We truly are in a time of battle against the enemies of God! Or maybe I should say that the enemy is in a battle with those who are lovers of God! But we know that “love wins!”

I woke up with a song lyric going through my mind. Often God will put a song in my spirit to speak to me about what He is doing. This time it was the line from the song, “You Have Won Me” (Brian & Jen Johnson/Bethel Music) that says,

“Shout it out and lift up one voice in worship, sing it out until all the earth can hear it, Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!”

There is a battle cry (or shout) to be released! Let’s shout it out as one voice until all the earth can hear it, “Jesus is alive and He saves…He rescues and saves!” The enemy hates truth, hates unity and oneness and hates the sound of salvation. Why? Because it is a frequency that shatters darkness and sets the captives free.

“The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.” Psalms‬ ‭91:14‬ ‭

He will rescue and save you! He will rescue and save this generation! His salvation will come like a flood in response to our battle cry because it carries “salvations sound!”

I see in the days ahead stadiums full of desperate and passionate people shouting out, “Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!” Their sound will not be contained within the stadium walls but it will fill the atmosphere of cities and regions with the song of salvation that sets slaves free! It will release a rescue mission to a generation!

I see mom’s on their bedroom floor shouting out the same words over their prodigal children and in response Jesus releases a rescue mission to leave the ninety-nine to save the one.

I see nations shouting these words over the unborn and a mighty rescue mission to save the babies in the womb! The sound with bring triumph over death.

Shout it out!! It’s time! It’s the sound of salvation and the sound that signals a rescue mission to loose the captives and to shatter the darkness…even the darkness that has opposed you, oppressed you and tried to shut your mouth. It’s time to shout! Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!

The Enemy Has Overplayed His Hand

by Kathi Pelton

I heard the Spirit of the Lord say,

“The enemy has once again overplayed his hand! Watch now as I overturn his table.”

What I saw were demons sitting around a poker table and they were laughing and mocking God’s people saying, “The deck has been stacked against them!” They were throwing outrageous bets in a huge pile of money because they were holding a “cheating hand” that was devised to bring great destruction to many. Their confidence was high and therefore they were betting on their high odds of success.

When the deck is stacked against someone it means to arrange things against them. Stacking the deck is to cheat by arranging the cards to be dealt out to one’s advantage.

There has been some serious cheating going on that is about to be exposed! The enemy has overplay his hand and become foolish in his confidence. The Lord is about to overturn this table and all of the “winnings” will be turned over to God’s people.

I also saw how the enemy is using the media to “card stack.” Card stacking is a propaganda technique that seeks to manipulate audience perception of an issue by emphasizing one side and repressing another. The technique is also known as “illusion of truth”: repeat an idea enough and people accept it as reality.

The card stacking that the enemy has done against the president and his administration is about to be exposed! There has been a duel strategy happening; it has been against those who stand for righteousness individually and as well as against our nation. But the enemy has overplayed his cheating hand!

Watch as tables are overturned and the wages that have been bet against God’s people turned over to the very ones that were bet against. This is real money that is about to be shifted to believers as recompense for the assault against them. The thief and liar behind this table that was set against God’s people will be found out, and he will lose his hand.

The only table that will remain is the table of the Lord where we will feast on His blessings in the presence of our enemies,

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.” Psalms‬ ‭23:5‬ ‭

The next twelve months will be a time of overturning demonic tables and the tables of blessings being set up in the presence of our enemies.

I hear the words from Psalm 2:1-12,

“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.” But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury. For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain. The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities— for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him!”

The enemy has been laughing but THE ONE WHO RULES IN HEAVEN LAUGHS! Watch as the laughter of the enemy turns to screams of defeat. For the Lord laughs at his cheating plots. Like Haman, the devil and his demons will become the victims of their own plots.

“So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32

Do not be afraid of what has been devised against you because His Kingdom is unshakable and His light exposes the darkness. Victory is near and it is sure.

Tent or Tabernacle?

by Kathi Pelton

Over the past three days we hosted a 50-hour worship tent in Portland, Oregon for the Awaken the Dawn movement (#tentamerica). When we were asked about sharing testimonies that came forth from our tent I began to ponder what I wanted to share. Although we have testimonies of healings and people experiencing deep touches of God’s love and presence; the true testimony for me was the tent itself. It’s three days standing has become a picture that is forever etched upon my heart.

Our tent was donated by a local church that owned an inexpensive “summer tent.” Purchased for under $100, they were perfect for a warm day event but not for a three day heavy storm. It did have “flaps” that acted as walls, yet they were little more then thin plastic tarps with clear faux windows (and small Velcro strips to hold them in place). The instructions enclosed with the tent clearly stated that it was not meant to remain up overnight and should NOT BE USED in wind or rain.

The weather forecast for our three day (50-hour) event revealed large storms approaching. Our venue was at a high place in our city so the wind is known to be much worse in that location. But, “in faith” we raised our flimsy tent and prayed for God to keep it standing.

The night before we were to start our 50 hours of worship I had a pretty sleepless night as I heard the rain beginning to pour and the wind blowing outside. I thought about how I was about to put thousands of dollars worth of sound equipment and musical instruments (that I didn’t own) into a tent that specifically says, “Do not use in wind or rain.”

The next morning, as we arrived at our tent to set up the sound equipment, I found a completely drenched tent that had taken a hard beating the night before from the harsh weather. My main concern was the sound equipment and the safety of the people who would be coming to worship.

As our team unloaded the equipment we decided to put two heavy duty pop up canopies over our stage area to protect it in case the tent failed; so we had “tents within tents.” We knew that nothing would keep the rain from coming in from the ground so we made sure that all electrical supplies were above the ground so that we would not electrocute our musicians! Then we took zip ties and reinforced the thin walls. Lastly, we used waterproof tape to seal any openings where water was leaking through.

After getting all of the sound equipment, instruments, chairs, lighting, tables, and decorations (even rugs) set up we were ready to go! It looked amazing and so inviting. The excitement was building but so were the black clouds outside. People arrived and our first worship team was about to start up when “boom!”…five minutes before it began all the electricity short circuited leaving us in the dark. As everything turned dark a torrential downpour began that was accompanied by huge gusts of wind. Our faithful worship leaders pulled out an acoustic guitar and began to sing in the dark. Our small team rushed around in the dark and rain trying to figure out how to get our power back on. Some of us searched for circuit boxes, some held the poles to the tent to keep the winds from giving us a “Wizard of Oz” moment, some worked in the dark to seal more leaks. All the while I prayed my heart out for supernatural help! But the worship went on! After about forty minutes of this we suddenly had power again. Our faithful team was soaked to the bone but they went right back into worshipping the One who is worthy of our offering.

Worship was continually beautiful but through each set our tent was taking a beating that surely should have destroyed it within the first hour. The heavy rain poured upon it and the winds whipped it like a kite in the wind and yet it stood!

Due to the harsh weather and need for “all hands on deck” our little team spent the 50 hours onsite more than taking breaks to get much needed rest. We were compelled to protect the sound going forth! Prior to the event the Lord kept saying to me, “Protect the sound.” I didn’t fully realize what He had meant until all of these things began to happen. We would protect the sound through prayer and remaining present!

Hour after hour the most amazing sounds of worship intermingled with the sound of the abundance of rain came forth. And hour after hour this flimsy summer tent stood like a lighthouse in the storm.

It was as if the harder the hits came against this tent the more resilient and steady it became. This cheap tent became a priceless, supernatural sign and wonder to all who came in. As it endured the storms it gained “character” and to us was no longer a cheap, plastic tent but now a true tabernacle of praise. I thought of the words from Romans 5:4-6,

“…endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

By the time we reached the half way mark, our tent had proven its ability to withstand the worst of storms and our confidence and hope grew! It was not going to disappoint us because the love of God was being poured out in it!

As I watched this tent, it became a picture of the Christian life. Storms come upon us that reveal the weak areas that need the strength and love of God. We endure storms that “should” take us down but as we remain in Him we are held up and our character is built. Then hope is produced and that hope does not fail or disappoint us! It is a hope given to us by the Spirit of God. The same Spirit that helps us to endure storms and grow in the hope of Christ was holding up our tent. In our weakness His strength is made manifest just like in the weakness of our physical tent His strength was being made manifest as we put our hope in Him.

What began as a cheap tent became a castle! It stood like His constant faithfulness that is sure and unshakable. So, yes…tents saw healings, experienced deep worship, made proclamation, experienced unity, saw orphans put in family and homeless sheltered…but what happened with our tent will forever impact me.

Our tent became a testimony of how He takes the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and how He takes our weaknesses and in that place causes His strength and faithfulness manifest for all to see!

So. now I am happy to boast in our weak tent because it revealed the strength of our God! He turns paupers into princes, orphans into sons and daughters and plastic tents into tabernacles of praise.

Angels Are Removing The Dark Clouds of Gloom and “Shadow Storms”

by Kathi Pelton

Early this morning I saw dark demonic clouds that has been sent over many of God’s people in order to distract, discouraged and dishearten them.

There is so much activity in the spirit realm right now over both individuals and over territories (nations/people groups). Great battles are being fought to take land and to occupy territories that have long been held by the enemy. God’s people have been arising like an army of light that will walk in unity, joy, peace and the fear of the Lord. This has the enemy scrambling for ways to cause them to “break rank”, dismantle unity and cast shadows to cause human fear because he knows that their fear of the Lord is one of their greatest weapons.

As I saw these dark clouds (much of which were shadows that appear larger than the actual size) over people I suddenly saw the angels of God coming to blow them away and expose them for what they were. Some were actual demonic clouds filled with dark assignments to send a storm over people who had become a threat to his rule. Others were nothing more than what I will call “shadow storms.” I saw it like when people use their hands to make shadow figures appear on a wall that look like monsters or wild animals. The enemy is actually using the brightness of the light that these people carry to cast a shadow that looks fiercer and larger than it actually is; or to give the appearance of being something that it actually is not. It’s a like “smoke and mirrors” to create fear and block the light.

The Lord is dealing with the actual demonic dark assignments that have been targeting true, significant threats to his camp and God is also exposing the shadow games that were sent to cause fear and to stop forward movement in those becoming a threat. His warring angels have been commissioned to disassemble the demons, expose the “trickery” and to blow away the darkness.

On another subject; I felt that the Lord wanted to remind some of you that there is a great sifting occurring at this time. This sifting will separate the “sheep and the goats.” It is difficult to watch this process, especially with people that you had great hope for. But do not be dismayed because many will return later when they come to a place of deep repentance after dwelling in darkness.

Wolves in sheep’s clothing are being exposed, false doctrines are being exposed, mixture is being exposed and impure motives are being exposed. Pray for a deep humility that allows true repentance to come to these people and places that have tolerated mixture and compromise.

Again, do not be overly dismayed by exposure of what was already there! Of course there is grief when we see these hidden things exposed but it is necessary. Just because you see it doesn’t mean that it didn’t exist already. Thank God for the exposure so that the opportunity for repentance can come. If they will not repent then it is better that no one else is influenced or led astray by their hidden agendas.

If you have been dealing with a dark cloud that has discouraged you, ask the Lord to send His angels to blow away the darkness and ask the Spirit of the Lord to comfort and encourage your soul back to the place of joy. The enemy is putting on quite the show and the joy of the Lord may be the answer that shakes off the heaviness. Also, remember that an uncompromising fear of the Lord is both a shield and powerful weapon against human and circumstantial fear.

It’s time to dance and praise Him in the darkness of night,

“Praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord who minister by night in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord. May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalms‬ ‭134:1-3‬ ‭
