Getting New Vision Into Your Situation


To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die. Ecclesiastes 3:1–2 NKJV

The Lord is bringing you into His perfect timing for the new season. You might need to let go of some things from the past to enter the new.

How to prepare

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Colossians 3:14–15 NKJV

The best way to prepare is to align yourself with Heaven. Develop godly character and shore up areas of your life where the enemy may be trying to gain a foothold. Love and peace are keys.

And to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. Ephesians 3:9 NIV

There are new angels here that will bring you revelation (mysteries) and administration (knowing what to do, how to respond and details for your next steps).

My Costco encounter

Linda and I were heading for a walk at the beach and the Lord spoke to me to stop in Costco on the weekend, which I never do. I bought new sunglasses and invited the Ephesians 3:9 angels and the Spirit of Truth to reveal what we needed to see.

Over the next few days, the Lord began giving me dreams and understanding on how to stop some of the heavy attacks.

So, put on those prophetic glasses and be willing to try something new!

Fresh revelation from the Word of God

Lord, you are my secret hiding place, protecting me from these troubles, surrounding me with songs of gladness! Your joyous shouts of rescue release my breakthrough. Psalms 32:7 TPT

This verse contains three secret weapons to get you through times of trouble:

  •   Intimacy with the Lord (which is love) 
  •   Songs of gladness
  •   Shouts of joy

Intimacy and love

Pull back and find the secret place with the Lord. The secret place represents intimacy with the Lord and love. When you get hit with discouragement or trouble, you will need to do the opposite.

Take a drive or a walk or pull back and spend a moment with the Lord. It does not have to be long. Just get refocused on Him and get your heart centered on His love for you.

Songs of gladness

In the moment of trouble, change your music to be more upbeat and positive. Begin to sing in the spirit and remember the promises He has given you.

Shouts of joy

You don’t have to actually shout (unless you are able to), but releasing joy is powerful. The joy of the Lord is your strength! By releasing love and singing, you get into joy and you will find new strength. It will shift the spiritual atmosphere!

Stay close to the Lord and listen

I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me! Psalms 32:8–9 TPT

Stay close with the Lord and listen to His voice. He is releasing instruction and will guide you through any difficult times. Combine this with worship songs and be ready to write down or record what He speaks.

Confess things and forgive others

So my conclusion is this: many are the sorrows and frustrations of those who don’t come clean with God. But when you trust in the Lord for forgiveness, his wraparound love will surround you. Psalm 32:10 TPT

As you pull back with the Lord, He might show you things you need to repent of … or someone you need to reach out to in order to reconcile a relationship or situation.

Don’t forget to celebrate

So celebrate the goodness of God! He shows this kindness to everyone who is his. Go ahead—shout for joy, all you upright ones who want to please him! Psalm 32:11 TPT

As you celebrate and worship, the Lord will renew your strength and you will find yourself in a new place.

Recently, I was getting hit by warfare and it would not stop. I was getting upset at the enemy and even yelling out to God as it was a major violation of my rights and the Word of God.

The Lord spoke to me that the reason I was getting hit so hard is because I am at the verge of a breakthrough. The powers of darkness do not want you to move into this new season.

I had to flip my anger to songs of gladness and joy and things have been turning around.

The Lord is now renewing strength and new joy is here!

    I’ve been in floor praying for forgiveness…and forgiving as never before!!
    I hate it has taken me so long to change deeply and still need more…but all the pain and delay has ATLEAST gotten me to where I observe my own motives more…etc etc more aware….
    One THING that has remained constant for 25 years….evangelism…doesn’t matter where I am the Lord brings lost people to me…
    I LONG for my personal life to match the success of that… Though I’m way better off in EVERYTHING personal… I’m ready to buy a home…to plant….and to make money enjoyable….hoping to not return to marketplace but have my own business..
    I’ve gotten to do in person ministry FOR YEARS…the Lord has not ever super blessed my social media “ministry” etc etc
    But I do realize He has a BETTER PLAN…and knows way better than I do.
    For One in more obedient and live the most pure…meaning pure…that I EVER have.
    Thank you for such a timely encouragement
