2018 is here and many have welcomed the New Year with thrill, tickle, excitement and expectation. They are eagerly waiting for “the vision which is yet for an appointed time” (Habakkuk 2:3), and believe that “the Lord is still in the business of acceleration.”
I don’t know who I am talking to but the Lord says the promise He has placed in your heart is yet to manifest, and you are aware that there are some necessary steps required to do. He has released a word of hope saying “Your long-awaited dreams are yet to come true!”
I Saw Many Warriors Held Captive By The Enemy
The Lord reminded me of the dreams I had in October and November 2017 where I saw many warriors held captive by the enemy. In October, I saw the enemy (disguised as a woman of authority) use her power and position and give orders to a man who had no choice but to obey. Every time the man obeyed her orders, she would laugh so hard as if she has gone mad and her eyes turned blood-red. The man was under her control, but I saw myself in the spirit and cried out to the Lord for the man to be delivered.
In November, I saw a DESTINY HELPER leaving, but with a heart filled with love and happiness he whispered in my ear, “I’m going to call you.” He was going somewhere to do what the Lord has instructed him to do.
Fast forward, I saw the enemy and his horde take him down, handcuff him and give him multiple shots in the neck until his neck sore. I was crying and lifted up my voice saying “Lord, You alone are my Stronghold and Savior!” The man, in agony, tried to shout as loud as he could with a message “Be strong, for I am shaking and shifting!” My heart cried out to the Lord and asked for strength; He heard my cry, infused strength into me and I saw myself break forth into singing!
Stand on the Word
I believe many in the body of Christ have been waiting for their dreams to come to pass and His promises to come to fruition. But the enemy, crafty and cunning, has been working hard enough to DERAIL THEIR DESTINIES and creating conflict, chaos and confusion. I saw the devil doing every possible way he could to stop you and your DESTINY HELPERS from what God has intended you to be. He was screaming lies at your heart and mind, and lies were his sweet candy.
He was assaulting like mad man the promises of the Lord. But, stand on your ground, warriors, and stand on the Word! Stand fearless! Do not settle for less. Do not entertain the enemy. Do not agree with his decree! You have a BIG job to do for Jesus. Stand on the word and the Word will bring it to pass!
Surrender, Soak, Seek, Speak
The last year 2017 may have been difficult and dreaded to many believers, but I believe what they went through has stabilized their faith and foundation. Although there were shaking and shifting, stirring and sifting, rift and roar, ruckus and rumble, every unimaginable pang and pain has made them even stronger than the old season.
In November, though I said that 2018 is going to be a year of Freedom and the Lord’s Favor, the Lord has also highlighted that 2018 will be a year of the FULFILLMENT of His promises. To have this fully manifest, much is required to fully SURRENDER your heart to the Heart of Heaven, deeply SOAK in His presence, continually SEEK his face and boldly SPEAK the word over your circumstances.
I See Many Brave Hearts Break Forth Into Singing
I see that this is your DARKEST season. But keep your eyes on the LIGHT, keep pressing forward and keep holding on. Sometimes you have to go through the worst to get the best. But stand on the word and “hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised” (Hebrews 10:23).
Keep your eyes ridiculously focused on Jesus — that’s the key. Keep your eyes on the end result you desperately long to see! Your time is coming. And I see many brave hearts break forth into singing!
For over 6 months now, the Lord has been highlighting this word on my heart — SOAR. I believe this year 2018, many unafraid and undaunted hearts will move with winds and SOAR, their DREAMS will take flight reaching far beyond the highest height and see greater manifestations of the Holy Ghost like never before!
