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!

For All Who Are 60+…The Lord Has A Word For You!

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was speaking to someone who is in his early 60’s and I said to him (by the Spirit’s prompting), “In 2020 your 60’a will be like your 20’s again!”

I literally saw his “youth renewed.” As I spoke these words the Spirit is the Lord landed on my words and showed me that this will come upon the 60+ year olds who are still “running with the Lord.”

I saw a weariness and the fatigue of age was weighing them down but suddenly the words from Isaiah 40:28-31 will come upon them and renew them!

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

You will have the wisdom, maturity and experience of your natural age but you shall run and not grow weary, walk and not faint! 2020 will restore the strength of your 20’s while retaining the wisdom of your years. Many will say, “60 is the new 20’s!” It’s the best of both!

God is breaking off the battle weariness and the soul weariness from years of plowing the ground. He is cutting off restraints from the past and giving new vision, new strength, new hope and new joy for the days ahead. The joy of the Lord will propel you further than any other thing. There is angelic help that will cause you to be able to do as much as the “twenty year old you.” There is a rest in the Lord that will clear the way ahead of you and allow you to feel like you are walking on level ground even while ascending a mountain. You are going up higher without effort.

Many of you have sacrificed your dreams and your youth to prepare the way for your children and your children’s children. You have worked tirelessly! But watch how God causes it now to benefit you! You did it for them but you will now reap a great reward! It’s not too late to dream!

Get ready for a revitalization! You are not nearing an end but rather entering a new beginning! A new strength! A new wind and a new joy!

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! ————————————————–

Your “Peace Guard” Is Ready and Waiting

By Kathi Pelton

I have a daily habit during my prayer time to pray one particular verse. That verse is Philippians 4:7 which says,

“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.”

I pray this because the Spirit revealed to me years ago that if I have peace, even while facing negative or challenging circumstances, that there is no inner warfare or turmoil. Therefore, this prayer daily (and some days more than once a day) has proved to anchor my soul in the rest and peace of Jesus.

But, something happened the other day as I was praying Philippians 4:7! As I prayed it I saw what looked like an angelic royal military guard stand at attention (forming two lines on either side of me) and I heard the words, “Your Peace Guard is in place.”

As I saw this it brought to life the verse in Psalm 91:11

”For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.“

And Luke 4:10,

”For it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully.’”

In early December I had an amazing experience with the Lord where His bride was being crowned (as a queen) and I heard the words, “It’s coronation day!” (You can read the full word here: http://bit.ly/36POy1c ). Since that time I have had numerous experiences where waters “stood to attention” as His people passed by, creation has stood at attention and now an experience of an angelic guard standing like an “military honor guard”. This peace guard that surrounded me was standing with such honor and dignity; as if I was a highly important individual.

Then I looked up what the military honor guard specifically does and this is their main assignment: appointed to receive or guard a head of state or other dignitary.

As we have bowed in humility to receive our crown from the King of Kings, heaven and earth have begun to stand at attention as we pass by. When God called our family to move from the West Coast to the Washington DC region (we arrived last week); he specifically said to me, “I am sending you as My chosen dignitary. You will sit with and host many dignitaries from around the world.”

A dignitary is a person considered to be important because of high rank or office. A queen is a high rank and is show great favor by her King (see the Book of Esther).

I believe that the body of Christ will experience many of these royal and high ranking experiences. It will be odd at first because we are still coming to grips with “who we are in Christ” (this is part of the change of seasons we are in) but it will change how we see ourselves. This assignment of a peace guard is very important for the days ahead. It will guard your heart and mind!

The Spirit gave me a key the other day regarding avoiding traps that the enemy has set specifically at this time and it involves peace. He said, “The enemy has set up circumstances and situations designed to move you from the operating out of your spirit to your flesh. These instances will provoke you to lose your peace, to engage your flesh and to propel you into a carnal reaction (and foolish action). That is where the trap is laid! If you move and act out of peace and in “a soulish reaction” the enemy has traps laid to rob you, delay you and ensnare you. Regret will try to bring you shame that robs you of your dignity.

When I heard this I sat down with my entire family and shared it with them. I warned them to be patient in circumstances that provoke a reaction (like traffic or fear or an offense, etc.). I shared how the enemy has set traps behind these provocations that are far greater than what is provoking them in the moment. The enemy has a legal right when we leave the spirit and enter into an agreement or alignment with the flesh.

I share this with you because it is truth. It is a warning that will guard and keep you from unnecessary warfare. Ask for His peace guard to come and surround your going in and coming out. Invite them to join you and to guard your heart and mind with the peace of Christ that is beyond comprehension (understanding).

We are learning how to live in the new day and new land. This is one of those important revelations for understanding your enemy and understanding the heavenly host that is made available to you.

“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 55:12

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!

Watch The Manifestation of “By My Spirit” in 2020: A Decade of Rest

By Kathi Pelton

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty Zechariah 4:6

Each time I see the numbers 2020 I see this verse overlaid upon it. As I have prayed into the decade ahead, there are two of the things that the Lord has highlighted to me:

• The sovereignty of God will be displayed throughout the earth.

• Resting in His sovereignty will be where victories are won.

As I was praying into these two things the Lord began to highlight an interesting item in the new house that my family moves into across the nation (in the Washington DC region) as a prophetic sign. That “interesting item” is that this house has an elevator!! What?! No, we are not moving into a mansion but was built as a model home for this community and they put everything that was offered into it. An elevator for the three floor is one of those options.

As I listened to the Lord for the meaning of this elevator I saw Jacob’s ladder and felt that there would be an ease about going up to the heavenly places and then an ease in returning with the revelation given. There will be a lot of going up and coming back down beginning in the new year. This will be the source of keeping us out of constant “ups and downs” in our souls.

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1

The invitation and the open door is before you! The key to entering in is resting in the sovereignty of God. “Not by night, not by power but by His Spirit!”

Just as I was pondering this “elevator prophetic sign” Patricia King, who raised me up and mentored me as a prophetic voice, released a word and encounter regarding going up in the ease of an elevator to receive deeper revelation!! This was such a confirmation for me (you can find that word on The Elijah List from 12/30).

As our family prepares to move next week to the Washington DC region (we will be in Virginia) I found myself getting emotionally prepared for a battle. Everyone that we know who has arrived there has had to face great battles. I found myself figuring out all sorts of ways to prepare spiritually, mentally and emotionally. It was like a subconscious preparation. As this was happening the Lord interrupted me. He said, “Kathi, what are you doing? Do you not know that resting in Me is the key to your victory?”

As He spoke those words I remembered the verse from Zechariah 4:6 and then the phrase that says, “It takes two to fight” kept going through my mind.

The enemy will try to pull you into “fight mode” because the past decade as been a “warring decade.” We have becomes more familiar with the battle than the rest of God. It’s what we’ve known and what we are familiar with but it’s time to change our “default” from battle to rest.

As we have laid down all that we have known to enter into the new we need to know that the key to victory in the next decade is spiritual rest. It is an abiding trust, peace and rest that does not engage in the provocation of the enemy that is designed to pull you out of rest and into war. I don’t exactly know what that will look like but I trust that He will teach us. This will not be lethargy or inactivity but rather a spiritual rest in His sovereignty. It’s a posture in your spirit that aligns your soul. There will be battles but the battle belongs to the Lord and will be won through the rest of the Lord.

I learned many years ago that supernatural peace was the key to my personal warfare being defeated (which you can read about in my 30 Days to Breakthrough: Stepping into Peace book). Where there is peace there is no fear or warfare! But this rest will take us deeper and it will be the one thing that the enemy cannot fight. You will be like a warrior of rest.

Then I came across a word by Bob Jones that I had never seen before, it is all about 2020-2029 and rest! Here is that word,

“The 2020’s will reveal the ‘Rest’ of God, to where the Body will come into a place of resting in God, where God will rest in us. And in this rest, the enemy will not be able to do warfare, because we are resting in God and He is resting in us. He will accomplish the things He means to do in a people that is at rest. He has always wanted a people that will come into His rest; there never has been one but rest is on the way.” Bob Jones

Rest is on the way!

“…but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Hope and rest will be closely tied together. They walk hand in hand. If rest is the key to victory then hoping in the Lord is the key to rest. Hopelessness will drain and exhaust you and battling in the way you have in the past will merely bring you into a war against hope.

Lay down you weapons of the past decade and pick up the spiritual weapons of the next decade which are rest, hope, trusting in His sovereignty, and accepting the invitation to “Come up here.”

I hear the “ding” of the elevator arriving and the doors opening to take you up. You will receive revelation and impartation about true rest for your souls and true spiritual rest. This will bring you much healing from the traumas of battle from the past decade.

The doors are now opening…enter in! Happy New Year!

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!

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!

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit…”

By Kathi Pelton

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit…”

Tonight at sunset the second candle of Hanukkah will be lit. The oil was only supposed to last for one night but it miraculously lasted for eight nights.

I believe that today, on this second night (when the oil should have run out) that miracles of multiplication will be seen once again. If there is an area that you are lacking in and what you have will not last for what you need tomorrow, begin to declare the words, “Not by might, nor by power, but by Your spirit…”

His Spirit releases the oil of multiplication and will prosper and multiply what you have as it is used and offered in faith. When there was only enough oil for one night they didn’t hold it back but lit the lamp— they used the oil. As they did, God multiplied it so that it lasted until the process of producing more oil was completed. Eight full days. The number eight Biblically represents new beginnings.

Often we hold back when we don’t have enough for the days ahead. But, that is because many live in the fear that God won’t keep His promise in our “tomorrow” if we don’t see it today. Yet, it is only what we hold back that is truly lost. If the oil hadn’t been used to light the first night’s lamp then the other nights of miracles would never had happened.

I remember a miracle that happened when my family was living out of our country as missionaries. We only had enough money to buy food for that day. We had four kids and about four dollars to our name. That small amount would buy milk and eggs. But on that Sunday morning at church the Lord asked me if I would give it to Him. I fussed with fear for a moment and then emptied the small amount of provision we had from my purse into the offering. Somehow we made it through the week with what we had and the next Sunday our leaders decided to honor us and asked us to come to the front of the church. They asked the people to pour money into our laps. That morning we received almost $8,000!!! More than enough! My $4 was multiplied into $8,000!! God didn’t need my original $4 but He wanted to pour the oil of His Spirit upon my small faith and watch it grow!

Our Heavenly Father held nothing back from us. He gave His only Son as a light that miraculously has continued to burn and bring forth more sons and daughters then ever could be counted. He is the “servant candle” on the lamp stand of our lives; lighting all the others!

Hold nothing back! When we hold back we align with “worrying about tomorrow!” Trust Him and give what is supplied today and watch the miracle of multiplication touch your “oil” and bring light to your life for many days to come.

Happy Hanukkah— day two!

Step Into The River That Rages Between You And Your Promise

by Kathi Pelton

The body of Christ is in a great time of crossing over. This is happening in both the spirit and in the natural realm. Many are packing up everything as they prepare to cross over from the wilderness home they have known into the land of inheritance they will possess.

As the crossover time from one decade to another is now less than two weeks away, God’s people are experiencing a preparation and call to stand up out of the familiar, out of the comfortable, out of the stagnant place, and move into the new land. Once again, for some this is a shift in their spiritual posture, and for others it is both spiritual and physical.

For my family it it both. The Lord began to speak to us almost nine months ago about a move to the Washington D.C./Virginia region. We have lived on the West Coast our entire lives so this came as quite a surprise and honestly, quite a challenge. When we determined (and discerned) that this move was certain we suddenly were hit with great opposition. Our finances were hit (even our monthly support took a large hit), my physical health was hit so hard that it looked like the possibility of any move would have to be delayed for many months, and circumstances that needed to fall into place were just not happening. Impossibilities were surrounding us like a great army of opposition.

So— we waited. We paused and we ascended the mountain of God to get face to face with Him. During one of my mornings in prayer I heard Him say, “Daughter, it’s time to step your feet into the river that rages between you and your land of inheritance. That which opposes you will stand up and honor you.”

I asked Him if this was a spiritual or a natural step? He replied, “Both.” He then revealed to me what the natural (physical) step needed to be and in obedience I took that step. It was a costly and risky step of faith, but within twenty-four hours everything shifted and the raging waters began to part. Not every detail was in place but we were able to place our feet upon dry ground, and with every step forward the waters of opposition have stood up and made a way for us.

Absolutely impossible circumstances that had no answers suddenly had answers and all of the physical symptoms that I had been experiencing—and that were leaving doctors baffled—stopped overnight. We began crossing over!

I sense that our testimony is a prophetic announcement over many of you. It is time to put your feet in the river that has been raging between you and your Promised Land. What has opposed you will stand up like a soldier that salutes you as you pass by. This may require a spiritual step or a natural step; or like us—both. Ask the Lord what it looks like for you to step into the river of spiritual or natural circumstances that is preventing you from crossing over. He will “direct your step(s).”

As you go forward you also need to know what to bring and what to leave behind. For us, this is occurring in the physical realm and the spiritual realm. In both cases there have been good things, and even useful things, that the Lord has said would not be needed in the next season. Parting with these things that have always been fruitful or useful has been an act of faith but we know they are making room for the new. We’ve never been this way before so we don’t know what we will need in the days ahead, but we know that we must make room for the new by leaving behind some of the old.

One thing I am experiencing (which I believe is a prophetic picture) is that, in the natural, even what I have loved and found “homey” in regards to the way I decorate my home is having to change. I will be about to pack something for our new home and the Spirit will say, “That is part of the old design. I have something new.” To me this speaks of taking off old mantles and making room for new ones. We are stepping into new mantles that will radically change the way we function, and even alter the appearance of “who we are.” There are days that I spend so much time getting rid of things that I wonder if I’ll have anything to fill the new with. But we must trust that the Lord is making room for the new, and not try to fill the empty space with something just because it feels empty at the moment. There are many provisions that will come as you step into the new.

Do not be overly concerned with what you don’t have as you move forward, but be careful about what you do have that you need to let go of. Those are the things that will hinder you, slow you down, and become obstacles in the days ahead. You don’t have to understand His ways but you do have to trust His wisdom! Letting go and trusting Him is key in this hour.

In this process you can be experiencing times of stress or sudden anxiety. That is normal because you may be crashing into the “boundaries” of your faith. We don’t like to believe that our faith has boundaries, but in times of transition you will most likely run headlong into a boundary line of faith. It is the level to which your faith has been tested and proved in the past seasons, but suddenly God is calling you to cross over beyond that point of faith that you’ve walked in before. The moment you begin there is a new giant waiting there to mock you and intimidate you with fear. I find it so helpful to pray out of Philippians 4:7 each day,

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Let His peace be the guard over your heart and mind as you go into new territory and as you expand your spiritual walk further than you have gone before. He is extending the tent pegs (Isaiah 54). You may be confident in facing a lion or a bear but a giant is altogether something new!

So, be patient with yourself and with those around you, because so many are in transition and it is a very vulnerable place to be. Change is hard. The unfamiliar is just that: unfamiliar and unknown. We are entering new cultures and assignments, and the boundaries of people’s faith are being expanded and stretched. This involves our souls being refined, and fears that we have never had to face are suddenly “in our face”! This process is challenging motives of the heart and purifying aspects of our lives that needed to be made pure. So, don’t be too hard on yourself or on your neighbor, your spouse, your friend, or your leader. We are all being stretched and what was normal is no longer normal.

Finally, pray for the grace for yourself and others found in Ephesians 4:2-6,

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”

‭‭It’s time to step into the river!
