Before Every Breakthrough Comes…CONFUSION???

By |August 6th, 2015|Categories: spiritual warfare|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Stop me if you’ve experienced this over the last few weeks: Tense conversations with co-workers/ family The feeling that you are talking past people who are normally on the same page with you People misunderstanding your motives or intentions (in person or via social media) A general apathy or irritability Confusion and insecurity about a new project/initiative Something is happening in the spirit realm and we would be fools to ignore it. In my last post, I talked about the resistance that comes just before you move into something new. Sometimes, the resistance is internal and sometimes it comes from [...]

Stop Swimming In The Kiddie Pool

By |May 29th, 2015|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This weekend God hit me with a challenge/rebuke that I think will resonate with you as well. I was in a conference session and heard Him say, ”It’s time to get out of the kiddie pool. It’s time to start swimming in the depth that I have called you to.” When He said it, I knew exactly what He was talking about. I have some revelation that I think is important and I’ve been sitting on it. I’ve shared it with a few people, but I’ve been hesitant to unpack what I'm hearing to a larger audience and He called [...]

The Wall In Front Of You

This morning I was out on my prayer walk and I saw something that I think is very prophetic to where many of us are today. Do you ever feel like one of these is about five inches from your face?   I know I sometimes do. The concept of breakthrough is exciting. I mean, who doesn’t want to move to a new level? You receive a prophetic word or hear God calling you to move out into a new area of faith.  So you start moving forward with excitement, only to plant your face into the wall [...]

Winds In The Heavens…Boots On The Ground

By |October 20th, 2014|Categories: Vanguard Movement|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

One last thought on whirlwinds to set the tone for the year ahead… We know that this year will be defined by clashing whirlwinds that shift the status quo. Power structures that have kept much of God’s Kingdom shrouded in darkness are about to be exposed.  He wants people to see. But what role do we play? I can tell you for sure, it’s not to sit around and let the winds of the enemy blow our lives apart. In fact, I believe that when God says He’s sending a whirlwind, what He’s sending is us. He’s about to release [...]

Dancing With Whirlwinds Will Blow “The Hell” Out Of Your Life

In my last post, I shared about how in the upcoming year, overcoming adversity will require dancing with whirlwinds. The prophets are telling us that this next year is going to be tumultuous, but for the believer who understands their position in God’s kingdom, there is also potential for great advancement. What was meant to destroy you can be the very tool God uses to propel you into your future.  But, to navigate effectively through the coming challenges, it’s essential to stay in a proper mindset.  So let me ask you a question: When you think of whirlwinds, what’s your [...]

Dancing With A Whirlwind

Do you ever feel like your brain is going to explode from information overload? That’s exactly how I feel. Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending The Head Of The Year conference at Global Spheres. The list of speakers included key prophetic leaders such as Cindy Jacobs, Dutch Sheets, Paul Keith Davis, Robert Heidler and Chuck Pierce. It was an amazing time of enjoying the presence of God and hearing the word of the Lord for this upcoming year. I’m still processing everything that was shared, but I didn’t want to delay getting you a few of the key [...]

Hitting The Reset Button

Prophetic words are great, aren’t they? Who doesn’t like getting revelation straight from heaven about the good things that God has planned for your future. Yup, they’re great…unless God uses a prophet to get after you. Recently, I received a word from a leader that I trust telling me that I was being disobedient to the Sabbath. After receiving the word, I did what any good Christian would do… I went to DEFCON 1 … denial, religious analysis and defense. Maybe she heard wrong… Maybe she was in a bad mood… We were all crowded together pretty tightly…maybe something bounced [...]
