Why is God Shaking Things Up?

   Bookmark and Share

I keep hearing God say, “Get ready for the countdown.”

There is a turnaround coming to those who have gone through difficult times, have experienced the fire of testing or are stuck in a wilderness. God is getting us ready for the promotions that are coming at Rosh Hashanah on September 21–22 (the Jewish New Year).

Shaking happening

Things are shaking all around, but don’t be afraid. The enemy wants to get you distracted and try to draw you into fear, panic and anger. God is releasing perfect peace and love that will change the spiritual atmosphere around you. This is not a time to regress or protest. Instead, it is a time to reset and come into agreement with Heaven and resist the attacks of the enemy.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
Hebrews 12:28–29 NIV

I released in my August prophetic word that the Lord’s fire is coming to test our works. This is necessary to burn away the things that are not of God and allow us to receive and move more freely.

… their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
1 Corinthians 3:13–14 NIV

God is also shaking things so that your foundation will be firmly established and you will be able to handle the new levels and anointing that are coming over the next few months. This is not intended to harm you.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” Hebrews 10:36–37 NIV

The Lord is coming, but it is not the second coming of Jesus—not yet anyway. God is coming in a revival that will be greater than anything we have ever seen on Earth. He is aligning us right now to do greater works than we have ever known! These things will be rooted and grounded in love.

Be encouraged,

    I have been so encouraged by your words, and I appreciate your following through in obedience to deliver them to the public. I have learned so much through all of our personal “shaking” this past few years. God has delivered me from overwhelming PTSD, given me countless words for people in ministry, and am writing His book and curriculum. What I still don’t understand is the money aspect. Scraping by and not yet seeing the return. I keep analyzing, praying, and asking, and keep hearing words such as this you wrote to keep me believing in His provision and stirring up hope. It turns me in circles…asking what I need to do – which way to go to provide for my family. It seems this is the area I cannot hear His voice as well.. is this fear of mammon? poverty? He is so good to us, and I feel like a toddler still learning to walk!

    This consistent with a dream I had back in May. I saw a wall of fire coming into my room. The fire of God is burning away the things in our lives that are not of Him.

  6. Lucinda Brown says:

    Thank you for this encouraging word, Doug. I’ve really been feeling lost in a wilderness of grief for the past several months now due to four major, major life changes that happened nearly simultaneously. I have truly felt shaken up, and at a loss in so many ways. I told someone last night that I feel the need to reinvent my life. God is doing something new, and your article encourages me to be patient.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Awesome Lucinda. I am so glad to hear that you were encouraged. You’re not alone, many feel the way you do now. God is doing something new!

    Why do you need my personal email’s password?
    What are you doing with that information?
    Why can you not use my wife’s email?

  8. Candice Kuhlman says:

    Thank you Doug for staying yielded to the Father’s heart throughout the years and being such a great encourager to the body of Christ. This word encouraged me so much; it breathed new hope into me. You’re such a treasure to the family of God!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you so much Candice for your kind words! We love that you have been apart of InLight for so long. Bless you and all God is doing in your life.

    Hi Doug my husband and I recently moved to a place we believe God led us. We are attending a church that has had alot of blessing but people keep.leaving. we feel God has led us there to give. However my husband had a dream he was in a restaurant dining room and there was no food to serve. He had to run out and buy some. Your thoughts please

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Angela! Bless you for following where you feel God is leading you. We do not do dream interpretation here at InLight Connection, but we do provide resources to help you grow in dream interpretation, such as the Dream Crash Course, https://dougaddison.store/product/dream-crash-course/. The cool thing about this dream is your husband saw a need and acted on it to help others. I would ask God what your role is in this church and He will show you and your husband.

      You guys sound like an awesome couple. God bless you guys and may you both step fully into everything God has for you both.

  10. Jayne Meier says:

    Thank you for this encouraging word! We have felt the shaking all right, personally and in our church plant up in Canada. We know that God is at work, and we choose to believe the Lord’s word over us. We believe we are coming to a point of being consumed by the Lord’s fire. Wind will also come. Praise God! Bless you!
