Did you know that you have a Book of Life in Heaven? It contains a record of the plans and destiny God has for you!

The Book of Life is actually mentioned several times in the Bible. For example: “… all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16 NIV

Learning how to understand your Book of Life will help you understand and navigate life’s times and seasons.

Here are a few ways you can start aligning with God’s purpose and calling for your life and understand the fresh assignments from Heaven for 2019.

How to exit the wilderness

Many people in the Bible went through times of distress. Moses lived as a shepherd in the desert for 40 years. David had to hide so that King Saul would not kill him. Jesus went into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan for 40 days.

Usually, wilderness times are to get you out of your own agenda and into God’s desires for you. But the wilderness is not meant to last forever!

Ups and downs in life are normal, but if you have been feeling like your life is more down than up, there may be a negative cycle that needs to be broken in your life.

God’s purpose for you in the wilderness is to learn and mature, not for you to suffer. You can shorten your wilderness time by recognizing the lessons God wants you to learn and responding appropriately.

What do you have favor in right now?

What was good to do at one point in your life may not work for you now. Ask God to reveal what He has for you in this particular season and time.

Look for new things that spring up in your life and bring you joy. Start noticing how certain areas in your life are coming more easily and reaping a reward faster than others.

It’s important to know what you have favor in right now. God has something special for you in this!

Open your mind to trying new things

God spoke to me and told me to not release a Prophetic Forecast book this year, but to do a new online training instead. Even though this is different from how I’m used to doing things, it was important to branch out and follow the new direction of God.

When God asks us to try something new or let go of something old, it’s because He has bigger and better things waiting for us! Don’t be afraid to let go of old hobbies, old ways of doing things or even old mindsets.

Eliminating the fear of letting go and receiving deeper healing and restoration will help you in this new season. Watch for God to open up your understanding and release fresh empowerment!

    This blog has been very helpful. I know that I won’t be able to meet forward until I face my fear of rejection.

  2. Thank-you for your inspiration which I sense is from the Holy Spirit. I know I am ‘to crossover’ from a church that I and my husband are in into something new to fulfill my/our destiny. Being in this church has been only for a season. So much control and political pulpit preaching has stifled the move of the Holy Spirit-although the preaching of His Word and the praise and worship is never compromised and encouraging. Yet, in a dream I was packing my things up and as I was waking up I heard the Lord say, “the time is now to crossover’. I am just not certain where I/we are to crossover to.
    Your daily prophesies are encouraging. Thank-you for your ministry. Arlene Lowery

      I am glad that you enjoyed Doug’s word Arlene. I am praying now for divine alignment for you and your husband. God bless you both!

    Thank you for your faithfulness and persistence Pastor Doug. I have read and participated when and where I can for several years. I have been contemplating getting a pet in my retirement years. I have done research and looked at different dogs and different options for several weeks. Yesterday I filled out an application for a precious little Bison Fries by adoption. Excited and a new adventure for me. God is so good and I love Jesus so much. I’m believing for a professionally trained, healthy 1 or 2 year old female with a good disposition. I believe I have favor and wisdom from the Lord with this. Thank you. You are always positive and encouraging. I so appreciate you and your team.

    Please pray for me. I feel this is the word I’m to take hold of to get me thru a wilderness experience so difficult I didn’t expect to live through it. But I’m still alive and feel lost and don’t even k is where I see favour spring up. Alone and lost I’ve been asking for God to throw me a lifeline and I feel this word is in some part my answer. Grateful, Hannah

    Also in the same boat as Arlene L. (above) We are in a church with similar issues, have felt it was only going to be for a season, but do not know where else to go to church (have tried many in our area). Was led to this one by the Lord in a chance meeting. It took a long time to find this church and wait for the Lord’s timing, as we had no church for quite some time before finding this one. (which makes it harder to leave) Had a dream which I thinks was saying to “come up higher”. Please pray for guidance. Thanks!
