It’s Time to Shift Our Focus towards Divine Change

Yesterday was Presidential Inauguration Day in the United States, and we want to welcome and bless President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris!

I believe we’re in a time of divine change. God is shifting things, and I want to bring some clarity on what’s happening right now in the world.

“Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5 NIV

The Lord is saying, “Trust Me. I’m going to release a plan to overcome the attacks of Satan that have been heavy against the entire world.” The Lord is going to use the things that have been happening to prepare us for a long needed and awaited revival—that is coming.

Shaking to reveal God’s presence

Times of divine change can seem strange at first. It’s not easy to hear the Lord and to understand the bigger picture—but we can understand the season. 2020 was a shaking.

“I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,” says the Lord Almighty. Haggai 2:7 NIV

Now, “the glory of the Lord” means His manifest presence, His power and His peace wrapped up in one. The Lord is shaking things right now because He wants to reveal Himself to “all the nations”—to everyone.

Praying for leaders

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:3 NIV

I believe that many Christians have misunderstood the importance of praying for leaders at every level. It doesn’t matter if a person is of a different belief system or political party. You still need to pray for them.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 NIV

This isn’t talking about the evils inside of a person or a group, but the reality that people can be influenced by the demonic forces. We must pray for leaders and not against them because Satan is working overtime to spread hatred, fear and violence.

Greater is the One in us than the one in the world! Jesus said that we should pray “on Earth as it is in Heaven” to get the strategies we need. We have power to bring divine change when we pray and bind on Earth what is bound in Heaven.

Our calling is to bring peace and to change the atmosphere by releasing perfect love in the midst of the shaking.

What should I do now?”

The Lord said that we need to focus on receiving the new financial strategies and solutions being released from Heaven because the storehouses on Earth have been depleted.

It’s time for the Joseph People—the entrepreneurial prophetic groups—to start coming on the scene. When Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream in Genesis 41, he also gave a 7-year plan on how to prepare and release finances in the world that saved Israel and shifted the spiritual atmosphere over the entire world.

I believe we’re at a similar place right now. These huge, divine changes are going to set us up for what’s coming.

It’s time to shift our focus to what God is doing!

    January 23, 2021, all during the day

    Hold On To Me: We Have To Keep On Moving Forward

    Framed in a shower of delicate misty rain,
    Your drawing directs a still to be discovered domain
    Follow Me, where favor and rest unfurled,
    tune this gateway to a deeper divine world

    Hear the voices over continents, a need to be heard,
    an insight of the Sounds of the Living Waters of the Word
    Discover a fresh, new synergy, leave all that pass away,
    a progress in unity, from a place of deep dismay

    A bolt of lightning curved stunningly,
    opened up an intense emerald shine,
    and despite the veiled blurred memory,
    recalls a history of Your hand, that lay fast in mine

    Thanks for your balanced perspective and good words. I believe Donald Trump was enabled by God to do so many good things because God’s people prayed for him. If God’s people would pray for Joe Biden and his administration like they prayed for Trump, God would work through him as well. Unfortunately people’s attitude toward that idea is shockingly negative.
