I believe God is restoring hope and peace to his people as we shift forward in the days ahead. The Bible reminds us:
2 Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
What the enemy meant for evil God is turning for your good. Joseph was able to recognize this after all he had to suffer.
“As for you, you thought evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring about that many people should be kept alive, as they are this day.” Genesis 50:20 AMPC
Turn around is here and will continue as we move forward throughout this year and the next.
God is stabilizing his people in peace by His Spirit of grace. He is opening our eyes to see what we couldn’t see before. He’s stabilizing us and returning us to his heart of love and compassion and in the areas of trust where we’ve doubted his goodness.
He’s stabilizing us in trust and faith for the days ahead. I believe God is blowing his breath of life to revive us; and he’s giving us his Spirit to calm and reassure us that he indeed is for us and not against us.
There have been winds of adversity blowing in the face of many of the people of God over this last year that were sent by the evil one to cause doubt and fear. But I believe that God is shifting those winds, as He confronts your enemies and the confusion that they brought with them.
These adverse winds have caused many to lack confidence but we can be encouraged as we remember the words of the apostle Paul in Romans 8:
“What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] [Ps. 118:6.] He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us? Who shall ever separate us from Christ's love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-33, 35, 37-39 AMPC
Who is like the Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth? Nobody! Who can stand against his power and might? NOBODY.
One of the ways that we know God is as the wind of God. We see Him at the day of Pentecost. When he comes rushing in no one can stand against him. He is Ruach HaKodesh-the breath, the wind and the power of God.
The winds that He brings cannot be matched. He brings prevailing winds that shifts things and removes obstacles. But for those whose hope is in Him those winds will be revitalizing winds that will bring life and will carry them to the places that God has pre-ordained and predestined for you to go.
These are places of occupation where God himself pre-ordained in the very beginning of your life.
“For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.” Romans 8:29-30 NLT
He gave us his glory so we would arise and shine right now. He confirmed us into his image to show forth who he is, so that others could taste and see that he is good. He called us to go and shift regions, organizations and companies for his purposes.
He has been preparing many to go and occupy certain places, as the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our Lord and his Christ.
I know the battle has raged and and so many are weary, but I encourage you to receive his breath right now and be weary no longer. Get positioned in hope as God is making all things new.
Neither be not afraid of the change that is upon your life for God is removing the adverse winds and the wind is shifting to your back.
Here’s a link to a blog I shared in 2017. In it I share a dream the Lord gave me and I’ve shared it before but I feel it’s pertinent for where we are now. The dream was of a coming storm; in the dream the Lord highlighted great winds and a sound that would accompany the storm. I encourage you to click on the link below and read this prophetic word https://www.danawadecoach.com/post/the-winds-of-change-not-by-might-nor-by-power-but-by-his-spirit
