Rejoice in the Wind: My Spirit is Moving & Cannot Be Stopped

PROPHETIC WORD

The wind of My Spirit is blowing strongly now.  The wind ushers in the storm.  The storm brings the rain.  The rain nourishes the earth so that what has been wilderness becomes a fruitful field as seeds long thought dead suddenly spring forth. Swiftly, swiftly I come.  No one can thwart My purposes.  I have heard the prayers of My people.  Yes, I have heard their prayers as they have bowed down. They have bowed down before Me – seeking Me and interceding before Me on behalf of their country and the world.

I have heard.  Have I not promised to do so from the beginning?

My Spirit is moving.  It cannot be stopped.  Who are you to try to stop the wind?  You cannot. Neither can anyone stop the outpouring, the coming with increase of My Spirit.

Rejoice in the wind.  Rejoice.  Rejoice in the rain – drink deeply.  It is for you, because you have sought Me and now the world will know and understand.  It is because you have prayed.  It is because you have worshiped. Thy kingdom come, you have said without any thought of yourselves.

How I delight in you, in your faithful prayers – your childlike faith and trust. How I delight in you as you purpose with Me for fulfillment of My grand restoration plan.

Swiftly, swifter now all that I have promised will come to pass. The time of waiting is over.  The harvest has come.

It must be brought into the dwelling place now, brought into the security of My loving arms.

My love is everlasting.  My love is infinite.  How beautiful it is as you learn to rest in My love which manifests (always) in faithfulness which is fulfilled promises.

Rise up My beloved and ride the wind of My spirit.

Soar like an eagle.  Soar like a hawk for no longer are you prey, but of My kingdom and you help Me reign.  You have been faithful walking out the work I have given you – step by step plodding on.  But now you will soar! Yes, ride the amazing, powerful wind of My Spirit as it roars in to possess the land and do all I have said I will do.

Where there is no wind even the eagle must work hard to move from place to place.  But where the wind has come how the eagle delights in it.  Effortlessly the eagle is carried from place to place.  When the eagle chooses to go where the wind carries it, how swiftly it arrives and how it rides the currents, delighting in them, gliding along the way.  That is where you are now, no longer walking but soaring, no longer straining and striving, but gliding.  Let go of anything which would hold you down.  Increase your trust.  Increase your discernment and fly.  I will carry you.

Devotion: Ambassadors on Kingdom Business

by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2010

Once we become followers of Jesus Christ, we must never forget we are ambassadors on Kingdom business.  We are no longer citizens of this world.  So though we live in the world our priorities are not the same as those around us.  Neither do we wage war as the world does.  We are always – every moment of every day, wherever we are – about Kingdom business (and we know we can do nothing without Him).

There is only one objective: to re-present the Kingdom so by the Spirit’s work in our lives, others will catch a glimpse of our Lord, want Him for themselves, seek Him and find Him.

Thus, our purpose is simple.  Everywhere we go, everything we are, is to re-present the Kingdom.

Of course, we cannot accomplish this by our own power.  We need the Holy Spirit flowing through us, which occurs when we are a branch attached to the Vine, Jesus Christ,  (which happens when we are in His will).

God’s will is not always exotic or exciting. To citizens of this world, His will sometimes can look quite mundane. 

It is important that as His ambassadors we are careful not to become poisoned by the world’s wrong perception and false expectations.  We never want to de-value or under-estimate the eternal value of the work God has given us for the current day and hour.  We do everything in joyful hope, in glorious expectation of what God will work through it for His eternal purposes in people’s lives, not because of what we can see or measure ourselves.

Together as believers we indeed are an army about the Lord’s business.  In an army, every member is of critical value.  So it is for us.

Rejoice and be glad!  We are blessed to do the work of our hands and the battle is the Lord’s!

 1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
       and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.

 2 See, darkness covers the earth
       and thick darkness is over the peoples,
       but the LORD rises upon you
       and his glory appears over you.

 3 Nations will come to your light,
       and kings to the brightness of your dawn.   Isa. 60:1-3

20We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.      2 Cor 5:20-21

14Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16as you hold out[a] the word of life—    Phili. 2:14-16a

10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.   Eph. 2:10

Stand Firm; Stay at Your Post & Rejoice

PROPHETIC WORD

Be at peace, I am with you.  I have not forgotten and I cannot lie.    I am Truth.  I am Faithful.  I will never leave you or forsake you.

Cleave unto Me!  Love others deeply with the Love of My Spirit as you let it flow through you, but do not rely on them to love you back.  Rely on ME alone!  What I have said I will do, I will do.  And I will use all things for My glory – that all (ALL!) will know I am God.  Rejoice in what I am doing that you can’t see and know I will bring a result that is far beyond anything you can imagine, if you will keep your eyes on Me, walk on water and stop looking at the ground. 

My plan is to restore lives not just for here on earth, but for eternity!  Only I know what must come to pass for My restoration plan to be complete.  Only I know the wrong steps My children will choose before they are ready to listen to Me.  And I will use all these things you hate and which cause you grief and worry to draw them to ME!

They do not know I speak.  They do not know they need Me!  They have forgotten they were created by Me and that the only solution for the longing in their heart is more of Me.  Nothing else will satisfy.  Nothing else brings joy, healing and inner peace beyond human comprehension. 

I am NOT the world’s logic.  I do NOT operate the way humanity says I should.  I am GOD!!!  Humanity is what I created.  Humanity does NOT tell ME how I SHOULD BE!  I AM!

You are My people and I am Your God.  I am NO PUPPET for you to use the way you want.  It is My plan by which the universe was put in place, not yours.  It is My plan which put you on earth to choose My way or your own, not yours.  You do not know!  You are created; not the Creator!

Do not doubt My plan.  War for it in prayer.  Declare its completion with thanksgiving in worship before there is any sign that I have heard.  Persevere to birth that into the world which I have conceived and grown to readiness in the womb of My Spirit in the supernatural spiritual realm, which you cannot see.  Though you cannot see it, it is more real than that which your human body enables you to sense.  For everything in the natural was conceived first in the heart of God, then birthed into the world in My perfect timing. 

Stand firm and watch what I will do!  Do you remember the story of Gehazi and how I opened his eyes briefly to see the magnitude of angels with him at time of battle?  I DO NOT CHANGE!  I AM!  As you stand firm in prayer for Me and My purposes in your life and the lives of those you love and others I put around you, know you are not alone.  I send My heavenly host everywhere they are needed when My people call on My name in faith.

Remember and never forget in all things that I am working on My restoration plan.  I desire for captives to be set free in every regard, that for My glory (that all would know I am God) they begin to walk out lives in My freedom, peace and joy not just in eternity but now.  It is My gift!  I am the Lord who Heals and how I desire to heal My people.

You have each been born for such a time as this.  I did not promise life without trouble, but to be with you in your troubles and work through these troubles to bless you and offer the opportunity for more to find Me for eternity.  I have promised to protect and provide in My perfect timing, in My perfect way, because I love you and love those you love more than you ever could because I AM LOVE.

You are My watchman on the wall.  Yes, you see the dangers, you see the enemy lurking in the shadows nearby and sometimes at the gate, but do not panic. I am with you; I know.  Only stay at your post and use the weapons of warfare I have given you in jubilant confidence.  Again, I say, do battle in the spiritual by prayer and worship with devotion, trust and complete confidence in I AM.  In this way I will fulfill My promise to My faithful and respond by pouring out My power into your circumstances and do a work to astound them all.

 I am God and they will know me and then they in turn will take their place on the wall for such a time as this and partner with Me for the next group of those who are called according to My purpose.  And I will heal them and bring them home and others will follow.  And so it goes as it has gone.  My plan, My way, My love, My restoration in My timing for all eternity.

Never forget I LOVE THEM ALL! Stand firm and persevere! I have heard.

I Move Mountains For You

PROPHETIC WORD

I move mountains for you.  I go before you and open the doors I have ordained because I alone am like the eagle and have the overview. You are like my eaglet, safe in the shelter of My wings even when you do not know it, for you are My beloved child and I have been with You, beside you, watching over you even since before you knew.

I ordained the moment of your conception. And whenever evil seeks to steal from you and those around you, there am I as sovereign Lord to bring something good and eternal out of it, just as I brought (opened) the door to life everlasting for all who accept Jesus as Savior and Lord through His crucifixion.

The suffering of the cross opened the door to the resurrection. As evil as the plot, torture and execution, I used it to bring life. I bring abundant life out of that which has died. Consider the seeds of my harvest!

Stop looking for your solution anywhere else. Lay down your burden and pick up My hope. Look to Me; seek Me; trust Me; rest in Me; follow Me. I will resurrect that which you thought had died – that in which you had lost hope- and I will do it My perfect way. Be astounded; be amazed. Be in awe of Me. Rejoice! I move mountains for you. And I will give you the desires of your heart.

Devotion: Beauty Which Lasts

by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2010

Too often we define beauty and see ourselves through other people’s eyes.  God’s way of beauty is infinitely better and so freeing!  We need to see ourselves for the beautiful,  handsome, infinitely-valued people of God that we are, endowed with great God-purpose every day of our lives.

Beauty on the outside is passing away day by day and though its effects can be masked temporarily, nothing can halt its progress.  But beauty from the inside out is eternally-ever-increasing when it is nurtured by our constantly seeking more of God and submitting to the transforming power of His Spirit at work in us.

External beauty has no lasting effect on those around us.  It works nothing of true value.  Internal beauty, on the other hand, cannot help but have an ongoing, positive, potentially-eternal effect.  Internal beauty flows through us and touches others like a refreshing spring in the desert.  As when an exquisite butterfly quietly visits a flower to drink of its nectar, thereby facilitating a bountiful harvest, the internal beauty of one person visiting others triggers something within them to begin seeking to nurture their own.  Thus like a pebble thrown into a pond, the ripples from one person’s internal beauty go out to touch another and then another in an ever-widening circle, having effect way beyond what that individual will ever know.  

Perhaps this is why the Bible tells us that silver hair is a crown of glory.  It doesn’t mean we have to let our hair go grey as we get older, but what a beautiful reminder that our focus should be on letting God make us more beautiful from the inside out, instead of anguishing over what is passing away on the outside.   In reality, no matter how we look on the outside, who we are inside is what people really see and no amount of make-up or plastic surgery will change this.

This does not mean we should ignore how we look, but we should take care of ourselves for a different reason.  The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit dwells within us and that our bodies are His temple.  We are to take care of ourselves from the inside out so that we can be the best we can be for Him. 

We are so blessed!  When we let Him have His way with us, He transforms us day by day more into His image so we can shine like stars into the darkness, lighting the way back to Him, His freedom, joy, peace and divine purpose for all who seek Him.  

What an awesome God we serve! (Selah ~ pause and calmly think of that!)

19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.  1 Cor 6:19-20 

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.  1 Peter 3:3-4  

14Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16as you hold out[a] the word of life— Philippians  2:14-16a
