Freedom from the Wilderness and the Dark Night of the Soul

It may not look like it in the natural, but God is using this time of social distancing to bring you into new freedom! Get ready to hear the voice of God more clearly than usual.

Because we are all being forced to stay in our homes, the Lord is responding by releasing more dreams, visions and prophetic words. This is a strategic season to hear God for what you might need to be set free from what’s stopped you from moving forward.

New freedom from the past.

God is breaking you out of past seasons during this time. This was the theme of the first Passover when the Lord set the Israelites free, after 400 years of slavery.

Today, God is setting us free in the spirit!

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17 NIV

I had a heavenly encounter in which I saw millions of people stuck in the dark night of the soul and the wilderness. The strangest part of this encounter was that most of these people thought they needed to be there. They felt comforted by the Lord and were content with just staying where they were!

This reminds me of how God fed manna and quail to the Israelites in the desert (Exodus 16). God provided for His people even though they weren’t supposed to stay in the wilderness. They were meant to go to the Promised Land!

But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. Deuteronomy 11:11 NIV

God will always take care of you, no matter where you are! That doesn’t mean you’re supposed to stay there. He has much better plans for you than the wilderness.

Two things to remember about where you’re headed.

There are two important truths to remember about where you’re headed.

First, remember that you are no longer in Egypt.

The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden.
Deuteronomy 11:10 NIV

You may not be where you’re called to be, but you are certainly no longer where you were! God has taken you this far, and He’s not about to stop now!

Second, remember it’s not God’s plan for you to keep toiling. The Israelites were called to move from a season when they had to toil to a land flowing with milk and honey!

It may be tempting to look back at the past because it’s familiar, but God is taking you somewhere new and fresh. It may feel uncomfortable right now, but He is indeed moving you out of the wilderness and into what was promised!

Prayer to get out of the wilderness season.

Here is a prayer that will help you get out of the dark night of the soul or the wilderness:

Lord I ask that during this time between Passover and Pentecost is the time that you do amazing miracles. Free people from the past seasons and release fresh strategies from Heaven over our health and finances.

I pray for those stuck in the wilderness to receive new strength and stamina to get up and leave the limiting season. Help us all walk into the new season. Send the rain from Heaven and send your blessing and healing upon our land, In Jesus’ name!

Get ready to leave the wilderness season and finally enter what God has promised you!

Blessings!

    I have trusted and believed prophesies that began in the 70’s and confirmed along the way until recent years when it seemed everything has been quiet: no encouragement: no new Words. This Word gives me hope the fulfillment is just ahead yet I feel discomfort as well because I have grown old waiting and at this stage of life a major change is a bit scary. I pray for God to make the way smooth and free from fear as I enter the next phase…perhaps the last phase of fulfillment. Thank you.

    I prayed the prayer you wrote for this article over my daughter who has been confused by the enemy. I praise God that she will come out of her limiting seasons soon. I don’t see how but I believe God is doing something! Thank you Jesus!

    Thank you. This is right on point because I have a fear my cancer, because I am a ten year cancer survivor. I became a born again Christian after I was diagnosed. So thankful to God for His salvation. I was reading the Bible to become a better catholic but revealed his truth and i am by longer catholic. It has been a difficult journey since then in my marriage my health. It is one thing after another with my health. My Homeopathic doctor said she did not want to go forward with balancing my hormones until I seek a counselor to release me from fear and anxiety and depression. She gave me the name of Dr Patrick Price and Lura Lovestar. I need to research them because I don’t want to see someone who is extremely secular in their beliefs.

    Thank you for the prayer as I feel weak in these unsure times. My mind seems fogged in my weakness is I forget the promises the Word gives me. I believe the devil is beating me down in my weakness. I will reflect on this prayer to strengthen my direction, my career, my health, and my finances.

    Thank You Prophet Doug for releasing such a timely Word for myself, It’s a confirmation, am so close to getting those fresh strategies, pray for me since the Lord said that by 8th of May 2020 I would have settled into the promised land. God bless all His Chosen and Called ones in Jesus Name.
