Comparison is a trap. You were created uniquely. The world needs your flavor of leadership. We don't need one more TD Jakes. We already have one, and he's killing it. We need a you. You carry something unique. The world is waiting on you to release what God has packed on the inside of you, whether that be your sermons, your books, your art, or some other kind of ability that God gifted you with. I want to share with you a little story.
I am here to tell you today that the tables have turned in the seemingly impossible situation that you face right now. The trap that the enemy built to destroy you will be the exact same gallows that God uses to destroy the enemy on your behalf. God is about to humiliate the enemy using the exact situation that the enemy was trying to destroy you with. Even more than that, God is making a display of your blessing as He works all things together for good in your life.
I was listening to a book on audio this morning, as I often do, and the author quoted what he called an old Montana saying. It went like this, "The time to have the map is before you enter the woods." The premise of the quote is that you want to be prepared with instruction BEFORE you enter into a situation where you need instruction, which makes total sense when you're thinking logically and practically. But shortly after hearing this quote, immediately I had to pause the audio book because God started speaking on the matter.
Things are shaking in the world today, and that which is built upon deception, lies, hate, and perversion is coming down. I want to preface by stating that this is not meant to be a spooky, weird, or scary prophetic word, even though I normally don't prophesy like this. Make sure and read to the end because God is good, and this shaking is good for us, good for the world, and good for the Body of Christ. There is a lot of shaking taking place in the world today. Not a physical shaking but a spiritual one.
Many years ago, before I even had a relationship with God, my aunt said to me that I would one day be a trailblazer and that I would do great things for God. She had no grounds for that word of prophecy, based on what she could see with her physical eyes. In the natural, I was on a slippery slope of destructive behavior. Tangled up in addiction, drugs, and promiscuity, there was no indicator (in the natural) that I would ever be able to get free and fulfill that thing she had spoken over me.
Recently after many years without seeing an optometrist, I went in for an eye exam. Let's be honest. I'm not an appointment making type of lady, and I'm also not a "go to the doctor of any kind" type of lady, so when I say I went in for an eye exam, what I'm actually saying is my dear husband made an appointment and kindly reminded me repeatedly until I went to said appointment.
You are crossing over. I believe that with every fiber of my being. You are in the midst of transition and MAJOR changes. I feel this as a corporate word over the Body of Christ, and I realize there are people out there that this won't apply to. If this doesn't apply to you, then that's ok but I feel this word burning in my bones.
Once upon a time I would to go to prophetic conferences and wish that the "big anointed" preacher would notice me and call me out for a prophetic word from God that would somehow show everyone there exactly how special and anointed that I was. That was supposed to confirm what I already felt on the inside and give me a little more respect in my life from the people around me.
Through a couple different supernatural encounters, God spoke something utterly profound to me about His Glory, and what our role is in releasing Glory in the Earth through our everyday lives. I want to share with you what God revealed to me through these experiences. It is my hope that we can advance the Kingdom of God together, in our separate lives, and have great impact for God in the Earth. Several months ago, I had a dream. In this dream, Jesus positioned my arms as if I was carrying something. With His finger he wrote on my right forearm the word "glory." The words appeared as a rainbow on my arm.
