I heard and wrote this word quite a while ago and yet the Lord has brought it back to the forefront and said, “This is a ‘now’ word from my Spirit.” Receive it!
I have been experiencing what I can only describe as a “whirlwind of God.” I was taken into the place of this whirlwind, prophetically, and I saw it rest upon those who have stood in His faithfulness in the midst of adversity. I saw it come upon those who have given out of their own need. And I saw it come upon the faithful remnant that has honored the Lord with shouts of, “Great is Your faithfulness!” in the midst of the storms.
This whirlwind of Heaven will displace the enemy and his demonic assignments sent against you and it will bring you what I heard called “crazy favor” that will make a way for you where there appears no way!
A road will suddenly appear in your wilderness, a stream in your desert and a refreshing cool breeze upon your parched soul. I see sudden and sovereign breakthroughs coming that leave His faithful ones wondering if they are dreaming or if it is real.
There will be shouts that say, “Look what God has done for us!” heard across the land! Contagious joy will fuel this whirlwind and the joyful laughter that comes upon those who have been touched by this will create “spin off” whirlwinds that land upon those who have wavered in their faith, and they will suddenly rise up once again out of their ashes, and beauty will burst forth from their lives.
This whirlwind of heavenly activity will activate faith in many and will cause resurrection power to be released in the atmosphere. The suddenly of God is in this “swirl” and a great movement will come forth from those it touches.
Thank You, God, for the heavenly atmosphere that is invading earthly circumstances and human vessels!

Did you know that in many instances in the Bible the word, “hope” can be translated to mean joyful expectation? To lose hope is to lose faith because as Hebrews 11:1 says,
Now faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see.
It is not only good but it is essential to our souls to have joyful expectation for our life here and now. God has given each of us dreams, desires and hopes that bring us great joy as we expect their fulfillment. Someone that is very close to me has been facing a decade of infertility and I stand in continuous joyful expectation that she and her husband will conceive a child. Together we dream about this little promise, we have talked about it, bought items to prepare for it, she and her husband have picked out names—plans have been made in joyful expectation. This does not mean that there are not many tears, frustrations, disappointments and even the desire to stop hoping. But the hope continues, and this hope produces joyful expectation even amid deep heartache for them. I, too, faced years of infertility so I know the rollercoaster of joyful expectation only to be met by painful disappointments. The day that I held our adopted eleven-month-old daughter in my arms for the first time, I experienced a complete release from all the sorrows that came from the years of “hope deferred.” Then less than a year later I held my infant son who I gave birth to.
We are not guaranteed that every hope that we have will be fulfilled on this side of heaven but we do have a guarantee that the hope in our eternal promise will be fulfilled. Whether or not we see every fulfillment of hopes and dreams come to pass it is still essential to live in the place of joyful expectation. It is life to our souls and health to our hearts. The dreams that children have of becoming an astronaut or fireman nurture imagination and joyful expectation. Though they may never actually ride in a rocket ship this joyful childhood dream is necessary for their growth and for nurturing their hope in the unseen. We were created to dream big in joyful expectation. If we could retain this childlike posture, it would truly break off the posturing of settling for something less than God’s best for us.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
Often, we stop believing in the “more than we can ask or imagine.” Yet, children are proof that we are to dream of things that are bigger than what we have been able to imagine. I have rarely met a young child with small dreams—they have not been subject to all the things that we learn that cause us to limit our dreams by carnal knowledge.
Common sense can be a great enemy of dreams, but the wisdom of God causes us to enter a joyful expectation of seeing “Him who is able” to do more than we can ask or imagine. I truly believe that the quenching of joyful expectation through common sense or man’s wisdom is more dangerous to the human soul than most any other thing.
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:9-11
Shouldn’t we dream of flying rockets or bringing healing to the sick? Shouldn’t we renew the areas of joyful expectation that have been diluted by the wisdom of men? Yes!
When my husband and I began the journey to adopt our oldest daughter, we were young and so full of joyful expectation that we said yes to a journey that was presented to us as “impossible in the eyes of men.” The chances of us adopting this baby girl was truly impossible in the natural realm—judges told us that we did not have a prayer, social workers told us that there was no way for us to become her parents, even Christians looked at us as if we were a desperate young couple that was immature and foolish in our faith and hope. Yet, I had heard my Father’s voice that said, “Trust me and go forth in faith.” Numerous times along the path we hit walls that confirmed the natural impossibility that we were facing, but the Father continued to say, “Only believe.” Nine months later, by unheard of miracles and out of the faith of joyful expectation, we held her in our arms and took her home as our daughter.
I often wonder if God asked me today (thirty years later) the same thing, if I would be as quick to give my yes? Have I “matured” to the point that I’ve lost the joyful expectation that would venture on such an impossible journey with the hope of God fulfilling what he spoke to my heart? Have I matured in the ways of the world or in human understanding or what we call “common sense?” May it never be so!
It is time for us to return to the God “who is able to do above and beyond all that we can ask or imagine” and enter the childlike joyful expectation that we had when we first began walking with him.
“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[a] considered him faithful who had made the promise.” Hebrews 11:11
“Father, today I ask you to restore the childlike faith and joyful expectation to me. I declare that every place in my heart and soul that has become diluted by common sense or the wisdom of men would now receive a full restoration of hope and joy. I proclaim today that you are the God who is able to do more than I can ask or imagine! I will not settle for less than the miraculous. I will no longer limit my dreams because those limitations have diluted my joy and expectation of doing the greater things.

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
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!!
As we move into the month of May would you prayerfully consider a request? May you consider sowing into this ministry?
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.
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!
Thank you to all of my readers who have stood with us and supported us with financial support through this time of many challenges! You are the “story behind every story!”
There is such attention being drawn in this hour to all the negative and the display of evil on earth. I often wonder if we have turned our attention away from the sacred and to focus our attention on the display of the profane?
Today I awoke with a renewed realization of “the God of wonders” in our midst. It is time to turn our eyes, our thoughts and our attention back to who he is and what he does rather than watching the display of the wicked. He is calling us to watch the wonder and turn away from the wicked.
Our God will display his wonders in the midst of the wicked and his hand will be the one that is proven to rescue and save. He is the one that shakes the earth, makes the mountains tremble and is an all consuming fire that comes to purify.
Psalm 17:7 says, “Display the wonders of Your faithful love…”
We say, “Yes Lord! We turn our eyes toward your faithful love where we will see your wonders displayed.”
He is our portion and our cup of blessing (Psalm 16:5) and in him there is no lack. It is time to stop looking at the lack that the world displays and begin delighting in the full portion and overflowing cup that we have been given. May this cup overflow from the lives that have been lavished by his unfailing and faithful love. May his faithfulness be poured out upon a world in desperate need of a drink of pure love.
This refocusing will allow our lives to be conduits of the overflow. As we surrender, as we worship and as we give ourselves fully to him we make room for his glory to be displayed and his wonders to fill the earth.
We silence our tongues from the constant testimonies of what the wicked are doing and we ask the Spirit of the Lord to loose our tongues with the sounds of his love. May the testimonies of Jesus pour forth and prophesy to the dry bones. May the songs of wonder and sounds of awe be released that overcome the shock and awe of the evil that has been displayed. And may our “laid down lives” become the posture of seeing Jesus high and lifted up for all to see.
The God of Wonders has not changed and his arm of salvation has not shortened. Our eyes have too often been pulled to look upon the profane rather than focus on the holy. It has clouded our vision for far too long.
We are not to be unaware of what is happening in the world but let us be far more aware of his wonders and his faithful love. We are “heaven’s journalists”, heaven’s sound, heaven’s reporters and citizens of heaven. Even the world is waiting for a good report and longing to see the miraculous. Many are longing for a savior and for something to give them hope. We carry that hope within us.
Isn’t it time to display the God of Wonders and become yielded vessels of his heavenly overflow?
“Yahweh, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth.” Psalm 8:9
Thank you to all of my faithful readers and followers who have so generously prayed for us financially supported us. You are our heroes!
As I waited upon the Lord I saw the month of April before me. A wind blew upon it and it suddenly became an open door into a beautiful fragrant garden that brought an immediate sense of hope and joy to my soul.
As this April door blew open I heard the verse from Song of Solomon 4:16,
Awake, north wind! Rise up, south wind! Blow on my garden and spread its fragrance all around. Come into your garden, my love; taste its finest fruits.
I saw the wind as the breath of God, the Ruach— as his breath was released upon his sons and daughters— new life, even resurrection life, came upon them. A fragrance, like a garden in full bloom, came forth from them that filled the earth. I saw each son and daughter take their place as a part of this garden that was filled with fragrant blossoms and sweet fruits. The smell went beyond the garden into the world.
When I saw this I was suddenly aware that most of the world had lost their sense of smell and their sense of taste (just like what happens when many contract Covid). They had lost their sense of smell and taste for God. The Lord created every man and woman with the senses to seek after him but the thief had stolen their senses.
When the wind blew this door open, not only did God’s children come into full bloom but the fragrance and taste of the Lord upon their lives began to awaken the senses of those who had lost their senses.
I saw prodigals returning as they “came to their senses.” I saw “seekers” suddenly finding their scent and finding what they were seeking. They were like dogs who had been following a scent but had lost it and were walking in circles— but suddenly they found the scent once again and it led them to salvation.
I saw many of God’s sons and daughters longing for passion and purpose. When this wind blew, it awakened them like a wind coming upon a smoldering ember that was very near to going out. But this wind caused it to turn bright amber with the glow and burning of his love and presence. Suddenly the dry and barren place that they had been in caught fire and they burned with passion and purpose to carry his glory, his fragrance and his fire. They became a great fire that could not be contained.
Fragrance, fruit and fire will mark the days ahead as we walk through the open door of April. The breath (wind) of God will sovereignly open this door and it will be like when the stone was rolled away from the tomb of our Savior. His Ecclesia will come forth with fragrance, fruitfulness and great fire. Resurrection power will be upon us once again.
Where much of the world viewed the church as a tomb with a stone at its entrance— they will begin to see an open door that is releasing the scent that they have longed for and they will find the treasure that they have been searching for. No longer will it be a place that represents dead works but it will be a garden of life full of the choicest fruits and a fire that will ignite passion and purpose within them. Even tongues of fire will fall once again and salvation will fall upon people as they merely walk into the fragrant atmosphere.
Altars will be so full in the days to come that his people will create altars in barns, tents, fields, farms, parking lots and even in theaters. Living rooms will become altars where salvation comes to the young and the old. Even front yards will become churches where entire neighborhoods are transformed by the fire falling upon them.
“Not by power, not by might but by my Spirit” says the Lord Zechariah 4:6
Begin to call for the wind of the Spirit to blow! Call for the fire of the Spirit to fall and to ignite! Call for the the Spirit and the bride to say, “Come!”
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life. Revelation 22:17
Come, north wind! Rise up, south wind! Blow on my garden and spread its fragrance all around!
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.
Today I saw a picture in my spirit of a small opening in a cloudy sky where the sun broke through. The moment I saw it I thought about when Elijah saw the cloud the size of a man’s hand and prophesied “the abundance of rain.” When I saw this small breakthrough in the cloud (allowing the sun to break through), I immediately felt the Spirit of God say, “Prophesy the breakthrough! A new day is breaking through.”
The clouds may still be more apparent than the small opening that allows the sun to shine through but take heart and do not give up. You can come into agreement that the new day is breaking through.
Yesterday was the the first day of Nisan which is the first day of the first month in the Jewish calendar (1 Nisan 5781)— it was the beginning of a new year crossover as we, here in Norrh America, “sprang forward” in time. It is time for us to spring forward into the breakthrough of a new day and new year.
Stand with me and prophesy the breakthrough for you personally and for His people corporately.
Thank you to all who stand with this ministry in prayer and financial support. You are deeply appreciated!
