A Prophetic Word on How the Devil Wants You to Believe You Are Stuck in a Dry Place

This is what the Lord is speaking to me today…Some of you are standing in the middle of your Jordan that feels dry and lonely at times.

Here’s the thing…you possess an anointing of the Holy Spirit that is allowing other brothers and sisters to cross before you.

The devil wants you to believe that you are just stuck and going nowhere as the people pass you by. That your prayers aren’t being heard.

BUT the truth of the matter is this…your obedience, your calling, your faithfulness, your heart for God, His people, His Kingdom, His word, what you are doing in this season right now, is the reason they are advancing.

Listen up—He’s about to tell YOU to come up out of that dry place and receive your promise…that once dry place will be overflowing with the living waters of life…but first He’s using you as His willing vessel to help others reach their destination.

An Encouraging Prophetic Word for Building

Who remembers my first blog?  I had never blogged before, but I remember that day on my couch, so broken, something in me said write and share. So, that’s what I did. I began to share the good, the bad, and the ugly…and Rowdy with Four was created.

Like with anything, you will have your critics…but for the most part I saw through sharing my heart and life with transparency the Lord was ministering to women who felt alone in their own struggles and wilderness.

He was using my story for His Kingdom.

I love how God works. When I began blogging, I had no idea God was prepping me for my calling and purpose that He has for me today through Hill of Zion.

He wants to use my story, and He wants to use your story, too!

Sisters, five years ago when I created my first blog, I was a mess…just a big ol’ pile of dry bones with nothing to lose. God met me in that valley of trouble and He has led me out-hallelujah!

When God moved me to the country, I began to sit around my little farmhouse kitchen table every morning seeking God in His word. It was a daily struggle, but I kept going back day after day.

By spring, I had found God in away I never imagined was possible. Now I realize I had religion and not a relationship.

The Lord  began speaking to me in seasons. For the first time, I could actually hear His voice speak to me so clearly…like when He told me to start a magazine.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:27-28

In my darkest season, I cultivated a relationship with God. We were together in my garden, tending to my chickens, cooking dinner, or doing laundry…it didn’t matter what I was doing HE was right there with me giving me a will to fight.

I began to love and follow Him with all my heart…true surrender.

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Jeremiah 29:13-14

I sought Him, I found Him, and He delivered me from the bondage I was in as He led me into the wilderness where He has been preparing for today…the now.

There’s been seasons of planting, seasons of dreaming, seasons of surrendering, seasons of deliverance, seasons of growing, seasons of waiting, seasons of worshipping…and now He says we are entering into a season of building.

How many of you are ready to enter a season of building? I am!

God is ready to build up His church and you, sister, have a vital role in this season of building.

It’s been brutal as I’ve planted, watered, and weeded over and over as I have been warring for the dream God has planted deep within me. It hasn’t been easy…but God never promised us easy.

I’ve weathered a loss of ministry, a divorce, a broken relationship with my son, and even with my now husband battling demons and addiction…I have joy and peace. I am confident my God is going to deliver him just as He promised me in a vision.

Don’t you love that our God is a God of vision and dreams. I’m not sure if I would have weathered the storm if I hadn’t heard from Him. He talks to me just like He did with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Now I’m patiently anxiously waiting on the harvest the Lord has shown me…to taste and see the fruit of my labor and tribulations from these past four years.

This week the Lord has been telling me to share with you all…count the cost.

I don’t think I really ever did that when God first began to plant my dreams in my heart of building something bigger than me. I just remember praying…Lord, I want your will not mine.

Now here I am…in the center of His will thinking about what it has cost me.

Of course, I was all excited about what the Lord showed me He was going to do! I wanted everything He showed me…and truth be told I wanted it four years ago when He first started giving me visions of my future.

Saying ‘yes’ to God has cost me these past four years.

I made the choice to give everything to God to follow after His will for me. He’s added things and He has removed things as well.

And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of theLord.

Job 1:21

It’s been a long journey of seeking, trusting, crying, and waiting…but today I keep hearing His small still voice whisper…PREPARE!

Prepare to build and count the cost.

ADD and REMOVE are the two words He’s been speaking to me over and over this week.

You can listen to my word on REMOVE on our podcast here.

Here’s the thing…If you’re going to build something God size, it’s going to cost you…time, talents, and treasures.

So count the cost. If you don’t count the cost, you might begin something you’re not able to finish.

You can watch my video on COUNTING THE COST here.

God is expecting us to invest with Him in this season of building.

Children, Men, Women, Addicts, Orphans, Widows, Sick, Oppressed…who does God want you to reach for Him?

What is God asking you to do to prepare to build? What does He want you to ADD? What does He want you to REMOVE?

PS…I’d love for you to share how your ministry was created.

Are You Swatting at the Devil? He’s Already Been Defeated?

Today I brought farm and dairy spray to school for the classroom and God reminded me of something.

When I first moved to the country four years ago the fly swatter became my very best friend. The flies were horrible. With little success, I’d be swatting before meals trying to keep them out of the kitchen and away from the food.

After two years of living in the country, we moved into the RV trailer, one of the littles left the door open. Need I say more?

Living right next to a dairy, the entire trailer was swarming with flies. I just began to swat and swat and swat…and then finally I began to cry. There was no way I was going to be able to kill all the flies that filled the trailer.

So there I was jumping, crying, swatting trying to kill all of the flies when my husband walked in. He just smiled and asked…what are you doing?

At this point, I just reached out my arms with a look that said…what does it look like I’m doing?

He told me he’d be right back, left, and came back with…YEP-farm and dairy spray.

Walking up and down the trailer, with just a few squirts, the flies were dead. Hundreds of flies were under my feet. All I had to do was clean them up and dispose of them.

Are you kidding me?!?

That’s all I could say. How did I not know about this spray? I could have used this spray for the past two years I’d been swatting flies that swarmed around by head.

You see now I have a co-worker who is now new to the country dealing with the same fly problem…his friend was the sticky strip. I felt it was my obligation to share with him the good news of farm and dairy spray.

Friends, the Lord is telling me this is what we are to be doing as the church as well…equipping believers with the meat of the Word.

There are people around us that are being overcome by the enemy because they are unequipped and uneducated in the truth of the Word of God.

The Word says He will make us the head and not the tail. That we will be on top not the bottom…but we must do exactly as He says.

AND when we do what the Lord commands and teaches us in His word, the enemy will be under our feet and not in our heads.

We don’t have to swat at the devil…He’s already been defeated-AMEN.

God is anointing men and women to teach and preach the WORD. Will you rise up and allow God to use you to equip believers…the church?
