Prophetic Word: Staying in the Eye of the Storm

We are in a time of preparation for some amazing times that are just ahead. Though it seems like things are uncertain, we must gain a heavenly perspective to overcome the attacks that are active all over the world.

You can be sure that the disasters and difficult times we are seeing are not from God. These things are from Satan and the forces of darkness that are trying to discourage you from the breakthrough that is about to happen.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. Hebrews 12:28 NIV

God is using these difficult times to prepare us. In order to receive greater levels of His power and calling we are in a time of testing and preparation.

God is with you

The Lord is calling you to walk through the storms without being afraid. The Lord not only has you covered but He is speaking your name in the midst of it all. 

But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 NIV

Watch for God to give you confirmations and speak in ways that you will know He is with you. The Lord knows your name and your needs and there are plans and strategies being released for you right now.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2 NIV

The past few months have been some of the fiercest storms and trials for me, but the Lord showed me how to get through this time and be a victor, not a victim.

Staying in the eye of the storm

Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. Matthew 8:24 NIV

Jesus demonstrated for us the importance of staying at peace during stressful times.

He slept through a violent storm and later He commanded it to be still. In another example when the storm was coming against His disciples He walked on the water above the waves (Matthew 14:22-26). 

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Matthew 14:27 NIV

This is a prophetic word from the Lord to you right now—do not be afraid for the Lord is with you.

The Lord has shown me how to pick and choose my battles. In the midst of the heaviest storms you can find the “eye of peace,” like the center of a hurricane. I have had to fight some battles each day but once I find that place of peace, I do my best to stay there all day.

Agreement is a key

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV

There is power when we can come into agreement with the words of the Lord. Keep in mind that the promises to you in the Bible are all very real. As you come into agreement with the Word of God and the Bible you are in agreement with Heaven.

There is also power in agreeing with each other. You can change your situation right now by laying down disagreement and differences and replace them with prayers and love. 

The enemy is kicking up the storms because the breakthrough to this new season is now here. Find the place of peace and stay in the eye of the storm. Be encouraged because the Lord is with you!

 

Blessings,

    How MUCH I do hope for and want this healing and deliverance; one painful/ distracting issue; a jammed right hip bone, due to riding lawn mower accident; painful; makes it harder for me to focus. I am practicing gratitude for all even smallest things. Please GOD.. realignment and healing needed; ability to walk “normally” ; for my family.. a safe car; paved roads…stove, running, piped water, hot and cold… very basic bathroom supplies… for pain relievers….etc etc.
    I AM GRATEFUL it was not worse. For my hubby, my kitties, the sun, fog, rain, beautiful environment.. for prayer answered..
    it helps me pray better to start thanking GOD for ALL these and much more..but I still hurt and hobble along…
    Please pray with me for restoration…
    oh yes, it is vital I daily forgive and release “others”…. friends and non-friends..
    Please God have mercy…..
    thank-yous to ALL of you!

    I just have to share this with you because it fits right in with Doug’s word about do not fear and God being with us through all the storms. I was flying home from Washington DC on Monday sept 2, 2019 when the plane hit turbulent air. I shut my eyes and I told the Lord I am not afraid, I am going to do like you did when you were in the boat with your deciples. So I spoke to the turbulent air and said be at peace in the name of Jesus and it became calm. Then we hit more turbulent air that w

    I am daily decreeing over my financial situation – my house foreclosed in June at auction but in Kansas I have 90 days to ‘redeem’ the property. At the end of June I had a dream where I was discussing real estate taxes with my husband and comparing ours to all of the neighbors, (we’re believing to pay our house off in cash) so I think we were calculating how much we’d have to save every month for the taxes. Suddenly the word ‘July’ appeared in the air, in dark red and just hung there in the street and the letter ‘J’ was dripping blood. I took this to mean that redemption would happen in July and was so happy and thanking Him! We didn’t see anything happen in July however – and we literally have one week (Aug 30) to have the cash in full to the bank or be completely moved out of our home. Either one will take a miracle at this point since my husband and I both work 6-7 days a week. Your prayers are deeply appreciated <3

    Thank you for this prophetic message. As I read, I see our Sunday’s message as my Pastor delivered it to the Body if Christ captioned “Victory from God is accomplished through Christ”.We were encouraged not to fear and trust God for our breakthrough s. As children of Israel we must choose to believe the good report (Joshua and Caleb’s) and stop focusing on the negatives (giants, fortified walls etc) By faith all is possible to him who believes.

    Thanx a million tines,Doug Addison. May God use you more by Grace to share from His throne or table that we are encouraged. Amen!!!

    This is an awesome word… Thank GOD…:-) In the first session of the event at Bethel Church in Redding called “School of the Prophets” Kris Vallotton said (August 5. 2019) that The Prophets of GOD must start speaking up against the sins of the world (in Love), to stop the watering down of the message of The Body of Christ. The Prophets must become “Changers of Culture” like they always where throughout history.

    There will be more attacks from those who are not jet saved, and from the powers of darkness, but the light of the Church will get brighter. Obedience to Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Father GOD is the key. It starts with the small things, and continues with bigger things. Obedience qualifies us for the gifts of faith we need… Specific faith for specific tasks, types of healing, miracles and supernatural provision. “From faith to Faith – From Glory to Glory – ultimately Glorified body with supernatural travel, healing people and land….etc

    “If you don’t have faith for it, it will not happen” But if you have faith just as small a mustard seed (compared to the measure of faith Jesus had when he walked on earth) and because of that, are actually available for us in The Body of Christ… You will be able to move mountains. And how much more…? The Holy Spirit is alone more powerful than all the evil spirits combined. He is “Jesus omnipresent on Earth” And he lives in us… We truly have “nothing to fear but fear itself” Because fear is unbelief. Faith is the antidote. worship and pray… and be obedient in small things, and Jesus will trough The Holy Spirit give you faith for bigger things.

    Dear Father God, Dear Jesus. Please anoint and empower you children. Espessially those you send out to preach the Gospel in the harvest. So that they don’t just try to convince people with word only; But with demonstration of Your Power, and of Your Love. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Hello Doug and team,

    I have followed your daily prophetic word and word for each month going on four years. Your daily prophetic word always starts my day. I eat the word I receive the word of the Lord and it happens or manifests etc.
    I must say today as I read your word for August and the daily prophetic words that have been emailed in the last three months have a different spirit behind it than I’m used to experiencing when I read your words and listen to your podcast. It’s like whoever is transcribing for you isn’t experiencing the same life as You are and aren’t able to impart spiritual matter as the words coming directly from you have always done. I’m sorry if this note is offensive it’s not intended to be. I love your ministry and have grown so much from your words and the way you flow. I just would like to have that back-your flow!

    Sincerely,
    Alison Lewis
