Guard your heart as you prepare to enter a new season. God has a new level for you to go to and you must shake off the viper of offense to get there. The number one strategy the enemy assigns against you is to get your heart offended. He knows that if he can offend your heart, it can short circuit the blessing of God in your life. NOTHING is worth that! If you have had something arise in your life that has caused your heart to become offended, it means that God has an amazing blessing coming your way.
God is expanding your secret place. The secret place is the place where you meet with God. It begins inside your inner being. John 7:38 says "out of your heart (belly, inner being) will flow rivers of living water." Your inner being is the hidden sanctuary of the heart where you commune with God. The secret place is also the "room" you go into to pray and talk with God. Matthew 6:6 says "Go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly."
There is a movement of creative miracles that operates in the realm of God's glory. Yes, the bible says that believers will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. Your hands are anointed for healing. But there is another realm of miracles called, THE DANGEROUS SHADOW. You can carry so much of God's glory on your life and live in such an intimate place with the Holy Spirit, that He is your best friend. You can experience so much of the tangible overshadowing of God's presence, that your shadow becomes dangerous.
I'll never forget the time I was ministering in Mexico in a crusade. During the worship God spoke to my heart that He was going to open deaf ears. As I called it out over the crowd deaf ears began popping open. Then my team brought a young girl onto the platform. When they pulled back her hair, I saw that she had no ears at all. She just had two little holes in the side of her head. She was born without ears and without eardrums. How do you heal an ear when there is no ear there? When her feet touched the platform the power of God went through her body and God worked a creative miracle.
Angels are a very real part of the spirit realm. They are constantly functioning on your behalf fighting and warring for you to be victorious and overcome. I want you to have a full comprehensive understanding of what they do. Below is a list of 24 functions of angels found in the Bible! I remember when I was a teenager my brother had gotten into a serious ATV accident with his friend. They accidentally drove the ATV they were riding over a cliff down into a pile of rocks. That morning my mom felt to pray Psalm 91 over us.
This is a season of divine emergence! Isaiah 22:22 God is opening a door no man can shut and He's shutting doors no one can open. And He is giving you the keys to walk through those doors! This is a season of new divinely opened doors. God is also going to make sure you stay on the right path...so rejoice when the wrong doors close. You are being divinely positioned. It's a RELEASE time for you. Delays are being broken and God is bringing you into a NEW INCREASED SPACE. You will be completely free and refreshed in God's glory.

God is inviting us into His presence in a new way. Psalm 84:1-2 How lovely are Your dwelling places, O Lord of hosts! My soul (my life, my inner self) longs for and greatly desires the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God. God is raising up a people who will live and dwell in His manifest presence. They will be filled with peace and joy during a time of chaos, crises and stress. I encourage you to go into your secret place and talk to God. God is going to visit you there. He's going to fill your room with His glory. He's going to refresh you and restore your mind and soul.
This is a season of divine emergence! God recently spoke to me that His people are coming out of a cocoon season. A cocoon season is a transitionary season, not a permanent one. ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢'Â¬Ã¢"Â¢s not your landing place. But when you are in it you often don't know how long it will last for.
What is the spirit realm projecting onto you? Are you aware of it? Do you know what's you and what's not you? It's important. As I travel and talk about the "feeling" gift of discernment, I always have people tell me, "I have never heard anyone talk about this before. I'm so glad you are. It has helped me so much!" Many of us have been wired by God as "feelers." We have a natural intuitive ability, as well as the ability to sense and feel in the spirit realm, as well as feel the emotions of others and the spiritual atmosphere they walk in. One of the greatest tools I have learned is this: NOT EVERYTHING I FEEL IS ME. You will have no idea how this truth set me free.
