2021 is the year of salvation and healing!
This past week I was in my bathroom getting ready for the day. Then, all of a sudden, I gently heard the Lord whisper to my spirit, "Daughter, where are your goals for this year?"
I told the Lord, "I have none, my Lord. COVID stole 2020. What can we do to recover? What should I do? Should I set a goal just to fail?"
Then I felt the Holy Spirit make a deposit into my spirit, like putting money in the bank. He deposited in me the desire to win souls in 2021!
"My daughter, this will be the year of salvation and healing." Then I felt eager and excited. "Let's do it then, Lord. Let's do it. There's only one problem. How?" This is deep.
Then I waited ... no answer. No whisper.
Only this Word ... "He uncovers deep things out of darkness and brings the shadow of death to light" (Job 12:22).
God is uncovering deep things from all this darkness in which we have been. 2020 certainly was dark!
Then I heard His sweet voice speak again to my weary soul, "No eye has seen ... no ear has heard all that I have prepared for you!"
Oh, Lord Jesus! What are you going to do? What are you preparing! Here it is people! The Lord Jesus is preparing something wonderful, and it's about to be unleashed upon the earth.
But as it is written, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. ... that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.. ... which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual" (1 Cor. 2:9-14).
God is revealing the deep things by His Spirit! This is the key! It will be by His Spirit. I want to encourage you to tap into the Holy Spirit and listen more to His heartbeat! His heart is to save those who are lost, to open blinded eyes, to set free those who have been held captive by sin and to proclaim the acceptable year of God's favor!
Can 2021 be the year of God's favor? Yes! I am telling you. God is favoring His bride! Those who belong to Him will receive favor and a double portion according to Isaiah 61.
So, what shall we say then to this? Is the Word true or not?
Of course it is. Now is the time to rise up and believe Him—more, now than ever before, because we are in the last days. God took what the enemy meant for harm in 2020 to awaken the church and cleanse her once again.
Praise God. He wants a clean bride.
I want to remind you what the Word says in Isaiah 61.
— Preach good tidings to the poor.
— Heal the brokenhearted.
— Proclaim liberty to the captives.
— Open of the prison.
— Proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
— Comfort all who mourn.
— Console those who mourn.
— Give beauty for ashes.
— Give the oil of joy for mourning.
— Give the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
— Rebuild the old ruins.
— Raise up the former desolations.
— Repair the ruined cities.
— Be named the priests of the Lord.
— Have double honor instead of shame.
— Rejoice in your portion instead of being confused.
— Possess double; Everlasting joy shall be yours.
Get Ready Church, God is About to Do Something New
We have been in darkness, and God will uncover the secret things from darkness. He will not fail us. He will do what He said He would do! This is the year of God's favor.
But it's not just to fill up your bank account. It's to rob hell of what belongs to Him.
When we get a passion to win the loss again and to plunder hell for souls, then you will see favor come your way. This is the year for the church to rise up and win souls. That means you! And guess what? Healing follows salvation.
I am asking the Lord to give you divine strategy and to open doors to witness.
God will lower every hill and remove every mountain that stands in the way of the Good News!
"In the last days, the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall go and say, 'Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths'" (Isa. 2:2-3a).
For the Lord's teaching will go out from Jerusalem (put your state here) The Lord will mediate between nations and will settle international disputes.
The gospel will reach the world! God will raise you, the church, above the hills where she has been hiding. Will you say, "Yes. Lord, send me?"
Unexpected blessings are coming your way. God is going to show His love and favor toward you. Let's win souls together.
