“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”
~Mark 6:31
A "season of rest" is something the Lord sometimes has to FORCE US TO Take. Like me for example; I ran myself into the ground "doing good". Well turns out, all that "doing good" turned out NOT so GOOD, I got burnt out and became useless to everyone including to my own self. 😨
The Lord had been gently nudging me all along to slow down, but driven by my passion for helping people, I fell into my own "will"; essentially causing myself to go deaf to the voice of the Lord.
So He sat back and let me crash and burn until finally, He had my attention.
That was just under a year ago. Since then I have heard Him CLEARY instruct me that I was to REST and pretty much do "nothing"; to take time off.
Now one might assume this would be GREAT NEWS, but for me it made me feel invalid, not needed, useless and more.
HMMM...
ALL prideful, egotistical, human emotions that constantly creep up in us time and time again.
You might question my choice of words here but that will be a message/chapter that you'll have to read in my book 😇, too much to get into here.
Long story short, in retrospect I SEE WHY the Lord called me into this "season of rest". It was unequivocally, absolutely, positively NECESSARY. See In order for me to remain in HIS WILL, PLANS, PURPOSE and DESTINY for my life, I had to play by HIS rules...NOT MINE. I had to become equipped and prepared spiritually, emotionally, physically and naturally to move forward into the NEW that He has for my life and Ministry.
So you see how wrong I was giving into those selfish, poor me, pity potty emotions. I had to humble myself to the WILL OF THE LORD and let Him do what he needed and desired to do within me and in my life.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭
Now I must tell you, a season of rest is not always easy. Sometimes it feels like you're having open heart surgery without anesthesia 😳.
I want to encourage you today if this is what you're going through, EMBRACE IT! It's GOD "rewiring" you to be successful in HIS perfect will, plans, purpose, and destiny for you personally and your ministry if you have one; whatever it is that's going on in your life that is for the purpose of the Kingdom of God.
Lean on scriptures like the one above during these times and STAN STRONG and IMMOVABLE on your faith.
So the GOOD NEWS is that the season of agony or "rewiring" DOES come to an end (although sometimes it feels like it never will) and then the season of refreshing comes! And ITS AMAZING! Not only do you feel refreshed and renewed but you now have new "eyes to see" and "ears to hear" what the Lord is saying to you and we are he's taking you.
Love you all. Praying the perfect peace that surpasses all understanding over you in Jesus name!
I pray this message gives you the "permission" you needed to REST!

​Help someone that's lost and hurting today...introduce someone to Jesus today and save their life...FOR ETERNITY

JESUS SAID: 
"I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’ “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”
Matthew 25:45-46

JESUS ALSO SAID...

“I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’”
Matthew 25:40 

“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
Matthew 25:35-36

As I was taking off on a flight destined to Chicago earlier I CLEARLY heard the Lord say...

"G FORCE"...FULL THROTTLE!"
"g-force ...is a measurement of the type of acceleration that causes weight."...

The "weight" of impact from supernatural acceleration we are about to witness and partake of (if you are in proper alignment with the will of the Lord) in 216 is immeasurable...
It's like nothing we've ever seen or encountered.
The "Captain" has turned on the "FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELT" sign...

the Lord says...
"PREARE FOR TAKE OFF!!!"

Get "right" my friends...if you’re not "strapped in" you will "fall out"...
It's NOW...The TIME IS NOW!!!!

GET READY CHICAGO... you are about to BURN! What happened years ago to your city in the natural, is about to happen in the SUPER natural !FIRE FIRE FIRE!!!
HALLELUJAH!
The FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT is about to be UNLEASHED over you! Your land has been CRYING OUT for the "revealing of the sons of God"!
It's time...ITS TIME!!!
Romans 8:19
"For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed."
I heard her cry...and now I hear her rejoicing knowing her salvation is at hand! I hear her singing "Amazing Grace"... "I once was lost but now I'm found...was blinded but now I see"!!! She has been defiled by the wilds of the enemy and now she sings "Amazing Grace"..."you saved a wretch like me"!!!
HALLELUJAH!! JESUS IS HERE! THE KING IS HERE CHICAGO!!!

I got this as I was "preparing to land" in Washington DC...
 
I search high and low...to and fro...
too find a light to brighten my glow... 
Where oh where are you...
The FIRE fly in the night that catches my sight to draw my light... 
I am here where are you...where are you...
I'm here to take ground for JESUS... I am the only fire fly in this land this night that will catch His light ...in DC
The land of the MAN...is about to be brought to his knees as the ONE TRUE GOD is about to invade his  hand!!! 
TPUCH DOWN!!!  7:43
HOME RUN says the Lord! 
 
 
As I fly into and fly out of our nation’s Capitol tonight the anthem "God Bless America" permeates my spirit...I FOUND MYSELF humming the melody unconsciously as I set my feet to her pavement walking over to my shuttle... 
I was praying for "the prayers of the righteous" since the dawn of time for this land to be "resurrected".  
See those prayers STILL resonate in the atmosphere...they STILL HAVE POWER! 
The Lord led me into AGREEMENT with the prayers of the righteous; past present and FUTURE.  
I was also led to pray for PROTECTION over the "righteous" as I am still unsure of which direction the Lord will "go"... 
See the bottom line here friends is this...ITS UP TO US... God GAVE US AUTHORITY... HE GAVE US ABILITY to "trample on "serpents", but we HAVE DONE NOTHING with what He has given us...
We MUST RALLY IN ONE ACCORD TO SEE THE GLORY OF GOD INSTEAD OF THE WRATH OF GOD in OUR LAND!! 
"GO INTO THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL!!!"
GET UP... GET OUT!!  GO to the highways, the byways; GO TO THE CITY HALLS...GO TO THE STATE HOUSES...GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND PREACH THR GOSPEL!!!
Our fate is IN OUR HANDS as God has GIVEN US free will!! 
We've reached the "line in the sand" ... We've reached the "end of the road". We now have a choice;
Go left ... 
Or GO RIGHT!!!!!
 
The CHOICE IS YOURS says the Lord! 
 
Help us Lord... Help us... 
 
I got this as I was "preparing to land" in Washington DC...
 
I search high and low...
to and fro...
to find a light to brighten my glow... 
 
Where oh where are you... The fire fly in the night that catches my sight to draw my light... 
 
I'm am here where are you...where are you...
 
 
 
I'm here to take ground for JESUS...
I am the only fire fly in this land this night that will catch His light ...in DC
 
The land of the MAN...is about to be brought to his knees as the ONE TRUE GOD is about to invade his  hand!!! 
TOUCH DOWN!!!
 7:43  
HOME RUN says the Lord!
