As I meditated on what to write to you this week, the Lord impressed on me that I should release the full prophetic word He gave me just before Thanksgiving. I shared some of the key thoughts from that word in last week's Thanksgiving post, but as I reread the word this afternoon I felt it needed to be shared in full. The focus of His message was this:
God's desire is to continually refresh you on your journey!
"Follow the thread of My Presence over time in your life to discover the magnificent way that I lead you! In and out, up and down through glorious places of ease and rockier places of challenge and growth. There is nothing like it!
Be amazed and astonished at My provision for your journey, and draw from the strength of your history with Me in order to continue pressing onward. Knowing Me will take your joy to a a new level and keep doubting demons at bay.
Receiving My wisdom, even in the form of lessons learned historically, will empower you as you continue your journey. Draw from the rivers of refreshment you have already found in Me, returning there and experiencing their power to sustain you.
These rivers of refreshment are not located linearly along your path, but spatially in the Spirit, so as to be available at any time. You do not need to reverse your course to draw upon previous lessons learned or refreshment given. You have only to ask the angels who travel with you to open up that story once again, so that you might remember and rehearse My goodness to you and so be renewed. These angels are standing ready at all times, waiting for your command to "forget not all His benefits."
As you rehearse My benefits and your powerful history with Me, you open up the way for Me to act that way again. Celebrating My goodness results in greater goodness. Rejoicing in healings received brings new healings. Reciting your deliverance encourages more deliverance to be released. Your remembrance is not only historic, but also prophetic.
There are cycles of goodness available to you as you meditate on the experiences you've had in Me. If you take the time to do so, you will become known for the very characteristics in Me that you are celebrating! One who experiences deliverance becomes known for deliverance. One who sees miracles can be a miracle worker himself. Let the stirring up of My goodness be a catalyst for future mercies in your life and the lives of those around you.
P.S. - One who experiences answered prayer will become a prayer warrior as well!"
Praying for each of you to be refreshed during this busy time, knowing that His Presence is eternally near!
