August is going to be a special month, as long-awaited revelation from Heaven will start flowing freely. For many people, there has been a drought in the spiritual realm for a number of months—even years. This is now going to break, and God is going to open the heavens with dreams, visions, prophetic writings, strategies, art, songs and more. All types of creative revelation will start flowing to you. This will start in August and will continue over the next few months.
The mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. Colossians 1:26 NIV
Expect to get deeper revelation and keys to the things you have been seeking God about. Mysteries are going to be revealed that have been hidden away for the strategic season we are now entering. God is going to reveal these things to prepare you for what is coming after September 2018.
It will be important to focus your prayers and times with God specifically on where you need answers. Make a list of the things you need a breakthrough in. Narrow it down to just a few important ones and begin asking God for mysteries to be revealed.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:7–8 NIV
Even though the season has been difficult, it will be beneficial for you to stay on course and remain in the Lord. Don’t give up! No matter what your circumstances look like, walk by faith and trust that doors are going to open for you. God’s word is true and will not fail.
It will help to make a list of Bible verses that you can pray and decree over your requests. Here are a few that I am using to gain revelation:
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
John 16:13 NIV
These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10 NIV
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. Daniel 2:22 NIV
Pray that the Lord your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do.” Jeremiah 42:3 NIV
God is going to reveal plans for you to move into places of greater freedom. Quite often, when we move into a new season, it will require us to make some changes with our affiliations, businesses, ministries, etc. This prophetic word is not for everyone, but there will be quite a bit of movement happening over the next few months.
The purpose of this realignment is to get you into a strategic place and time where you can receive fully and freely from the Lord. This does not have to be a physical movement. Watch for God to give you instructions and be open to new associations, friends and organizations. Be sure to get confirmation before doing anything major.
Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure—you, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts. Psalm 7:9 NIV
God showed me that if people would start praying and decreeing Psalm 7:9 that He would shift the spiritual atmosphere, bring an end to the violence and make us secure. It is important not to believe the lies of the enemy and know that God is about to release something new. What we are seeing is a great attack before the great revival.
Jesus demonstrated how to respond when Satan brings a storm. Twice Satan tried to kill Jesus using a storm.
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:23–26 NIV
The second time, in Matthew 14:22–32, Jesus walked on the water over the storm.
There are times when we need to rest in the storm and there are other times we need to rise above the attacks.
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Matthew 14:32 NIV
As you invite the Lord into your situation, the storms will die down and peace will be restored. It is time to rest in the promises of God, get up and rebuke the storm, and rise above your situation. Invite God in and watch for a miracle.
