Watch God shower His bountiful blessings on you and learn how His overwhelming favor shines through every facet of life! Expect finances and ministries to boom as His glory and fire spread contagiously in this season!
Explosive New Birth
God is a God of times and seasons, so to better understand what is taking place, we have to look into God's timeline to see what He has done historically. Right now, we are in the Hebraic month of Sivan, which is known as a month of birthing! Just like the church was born at Pentecost in uncontrollable power, watch as God births something new through you!
He is birthing dreams, visions and prophetic words which will catapult you into your destiny, which has been promised to you since the beginning of time!
Wrestling for the New Name
Jewish scholars relate the month of Sivan with Jacob, one of the fathers of the faith. Looking into Genesis 32:24 -32, we can see the story of Jacob's wrestling match with an angel. All night they continued their struggle to no avail. When the angel saw that day was breaking, he put Jacob's hip out of joint and told him to let go.
Even though Jacob was in pain, he told the angel he wouldn't give up without a blessing. It was only when the angel saw the man's relentless tenacity that he finally decided to bless him, and he changed Jacob's name to Israel. This ultimately altered Jacobs' whole identity and his entire future.
Maturity Through Hardship
Yes, you've fought hard and won, but it has also left you changed. Just like Jacob's hip, you've been left marked. If you want the new name, you must endure persecution and pain. Would you be able to trust a leader who hasn't experienced hardship?
Be encouraged because God is maturing you and preparing you through the Pentecost power and glory so that you will glide through your upcoming battles. You will pass every test and win every wrestling match with every contender!
The anointing of God is coming over you and empowering you to be just like Jacob! You have been transformed and crowned with a new identity for such a time as this! You have been totally transformed and given a new name!
God is calling you out from everyone around you and rewarding you for a job well done. Expect a boom, new birth and mega blessings as you move to achieve what the world told you would be impossible. You have endured your tests and trials; now claim your reward!
