THIS WORD COULD BE THE CLARITY AND ENCOURAGEMENT YOU NEED

Lord, we don’t always know what is going on, but we know You are at work. Remind us that we are a part of a larger spiritual plan but that you see us and love us individually. Give us discernment on this word from a fellow believer, and let us glean from it what You may want us to know.

Have you felt recently pretty overwhelmed by what you are walking through in this season? Or maybe you have felt a little discouraged by the amount of time it is taking to see that promise you are contending for fulfilled?

Since I am a seer, the Lord shows me visions of what is happening across the earth. I should share that not always do I get global pictures, but more often, for individuals. Recently however, Jesus took me above the earth to see what was happening globally.

I was taken into a prophetic vision, and I was sitting with Jesus looking down over the earth below. He said to me, “Look, I want to show you what’s happening all over the world right now.”

What Is the Enemy’s Strategy in This Season?

As I looked down, I could see these horrible little demonic creatures being released all across the world. Every nation was being touched by these demons. Jesus read my thoughts and immediately responded to them. “The enemy has assigned specific demons to be released over the earth right now. They are wrecking My people with discouragement over their assignment for this season. Many are losing hope right now, feeling like, “What is the point of all that I am doing?’ These assaults from the enemy are bringing a feeling of purposelessness across the body. The enemy is releasing spirits of chaos, and many are losing their ability to focus and also hear My voice. Distraction and confusion are being loosed into the atmosphere right now. Many are feeling overwhelmed and even feeling like quitting. Feeling overwhelmed right now is actually a spiritual attack.”

Then I saw that there were specific targets of the enemy on pastors, prophets and evangelists. If you find yourself in one of these categories, have you recently felt discouraged in the ministry and even in your personal life? It can feel like there is almost too much for you to handle it all right now, and you can feel like you are suffocating in busyness and the heaviness of the ministry. Would you believe this is because a target of the enemy has been placed on you? Rest assured, you are not alone in feeling this way. I have spoken to many leaders across the world who are feeling this in this season. It’s a direct attack on your mantle in the kingdom. As you feel suffocated, you are paralyzed in taking back land from the enemy.

The Place of Safety, Refuge and Protection

Our present state as a church is not lacking an overflow of the pouring out of Holy Spirit. God is bursting out everywhere, as we are in the greatest harvest time on the earth, and He wants to be displayed in His fullness. Right now, however, our greatest lack as a whole is the ability to Find Him, to find Jesus in the midst of politically what is taking place over the world, to find Him in the middle of everything that’s trying to pull our attention and focus away from Jesus and in the chaotic swirl you may find yourself in today even on a personal level. God is drawing us back to the place of being able to be still with Him. Isn’t it funny how people with whom you are the most intimate don’t always have to talk but can just sit with and be quiet together? There is a drawing from the Father right now: “Come back to the place of intimate encounter with my heart. Let’s just be together.”

In Mark 4, as the disciples are besides themselves caught in a horrible storm in the middle of the ocean on a boat, Jesus is found sleeping. Can you imagine? The boat is filling up with water, and the desperate disciples wake Jesus up: “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38b).

Jesus stands up, rebukes the wind, turns to the sea and says, “Peace, be still.” Then turning to his disciples, he says to them “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” (Mark 4:40).

Will we be a people whose faith is unwavering, although we can’t see the solutions right now? He is with you in the unknown places.

‘It’s Birthing Time!’

My husband and I are in the middle of a total house renovation right now. One day as I was there in 2-degree cold weather, and I was sitting on the floor picking out nail by nail with tweezers, I began to bless the Lord with each nail. I thought, “I better praise God right now, or I’ll end up crying through this painstaking process.”

Just then, right before my eyes, I saw Jesus looking at me. With my eyes wide open, I was having an open vision of the Lord. There He was, down scrubbing the floor, sweat dripping down his forehead. “I am here with you right now, right here. Time to muscle up,” He said back to me.

He didn’t say that He would take the hard work away, but rather, He reminded me that He is right there, right beside us through it all. We are in birthing pains right now. Any woman who has been through labor with a child (unless they have a supernatural one) knows there is that point of feeling like, “I just can’t keep going. Will this promise ever come? Will this season of pain lift? Can I even do this?”

That’s exactly where we are at right now as a church. You are in the birthing pains of something great that is coming. Don’t you break down now and quit! The Lord wouldn’t give you more than you can handle, but it will be challenging. Our faith muscles are being stretched now to the fullest. You will grow exponentially in this season as you press into Him and not your own strength.

“How God, how will you do what you have promised? When will you fulfill your promises?” might be your cry. Get still. Find Him again. He’s right there beside you. I pray for confusion, discouragement, hopelessness and the feeling of being overwhelmed and purposeless to be broken off you now in Jesus name. May you be able to hear and find Jesus again with clarity.

  2. To Ana Werner
    From Ann -FL, a prayer warrior
    williamsgeorgeann9@gmail.com
    I’m standing in the gap at my regular watch time, Sat. @ 12am.
    Thank you for your “anointed insight”! For over a year, I’ve been telling members of my bible study “The world, our nation, our church, our families, individuals — are in “spiritual warfare; that we should repent, humble ourselves, seek the face of God, cry out to Him (2Chron. 7:14). Also we should observe Joel’s Call to Repentance: Joel 2:12-17. Then Pray, Believe. Decree, The LORD’s Promise of Restoration, including “the Birthing of Spiritual Revival,” (Joel 2:18-32). UNDERSTAND AND UTILIZE OUR WEAPONS OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE: PREPARE YOUR SPIRITUAL WEAPONS; USE THEM; BELIEVE, PROCLAIM GOD’s VICTORY!
    Ephesians 6:10-19 Spiritually, put on The Whole Armor of God: (see yourself dressed in this armor: also, pick up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God and Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every event– or at least ask God to give you the right words and to control your tongue.
    Mark 3:24-27 ( summarizing JESUS speaking: “A kingdom, nation divided by civil war will collapse.” Jesus asks: “Who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger– someone who could tie him up (bind him) and then plunder his house.”
    Ana gave example Mark 4:39-41. JESUS rebuked the storm, the wind (Satan’s attack):
    “Silence! Be still!” The JESUS asked: “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
    JESUS is asking us today, act as Believers, Warriors, battle the satanic strongman. Mark 3:24 about “binding”. the satanic strongman and all his goods. Matt 18:18-19 (Know that we, in the powerful name of JESUS, have the Power to Bind, to Forbid on earth, especially if two or more agree). JESUS: “Whatever you forbid, bind on earth….whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven. If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or more gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”
    So JESUS challenges us to Fight the Battle for GOD’s RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION, THE WORLD: (2Cor 10:3-6 Living Testament: “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use GOD’s MIGHTY WEAPONS, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. And after you have become fully obedient, we will, (yes, we will) punish everyone who remains disobedient). (10:8) Our authority, given to us by the Lord Jesus, builds you up. Romans 8:37 “…in all these things, we are More Than CONQUERORS through Him that loved us.”
    SO, REPENT OF YOUR SINS, OUR NATION’S SINS; THEN PUT ON YOUR ARMOR; SPEAK GOD’s WORDS; FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT: GOD’s RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION. JOIN GOD’s WARRIORS! GOD BLESS YOU! GOD BLESS AMERICA — ONE NATION, INDIVISIBLE, UNDER GOD AND IN GOD WE TRUST!
