Prophetic Word of the Lord: "Be Strengthened. Believe. Rejoice. Expect the Goodness of God."
Just before the end of 2014, the Lord woke me early one morning and invited me to come spend some time with Him. As I sat with Him, my Bible, and a cup of coffee, He began to speak to me of His promises for 2015. Here is what I heard:
"What's past is past. What has limited you is now limited in its ability to affect you. The things that have held you back, they will now be held back. It is a new hour, a new day, and a new season. I love you. And in that love, I keep My Word. All My Word is true, and it's all for you. Open the Book, even as Daniel did, and I will bless you as I blessed him – with a special ability to understand My mysteries and know My Truth. As you say 'Yes!' to My YES and AMEN, it will be easier for you to say 'No!' to the lies and lures of the enemy that have buffeted you in the past.
"A new assignment of angels has been loosed into the earth for My faithful – to aid those who are full of faith in this hour – to help them lay hold of and move in what has always been theirs. The fruit of the Holy Spirit IS yours. The gifts of the Holy Spirit ARE yours. There is nothing I have not given you. There is nothing I have not done for you. In this New Year there will be a new grace to know this deeply, and from that deep place, as you declare it and release praise because of it, you will begin to see new and greater manifestations of My Truth.
"For a time the enemy has resisted you. What felt like delay and defeat, you will now see was actually a time of perseverance and preparation. Fear not. Only believe. For you are deeply loved. My plans for you have not changed, and I am well able to bring about ALL that I have always intended for you. I am strengthening you afresh. I am speaking to you anew. Take heart. Be strengthened. Believe. Rejoice. Expect the goodness of God. For I am the Lord, and I do not lose."
Faith-filled Decrees and Praise
Many in the Body have been through challenging times these past years. The devil wants to point to your circumstances to tempt you to doubt the goodness of God and the truth of His promises. But God wants to point to His Word to remind you of the certainty of His promises and His ability to bring them about (see Genesis 28:15). Jesus gave us the key, "If you believe you will receive" (see Matthew 21:22), and in this hour He wants to give us a gift of increased faith so that we can see increased manifestations of what He has done and has given us.
I believe this word of the Lord for 2015 is our invitation to receive a great grace to let go of what was (past challenges, trials, confusions and disappointments), and enter into what has always been ours – fullness of blessing through the finished work of the Cross.
God is reminding us that He has given us everything. As we come into agreement with that, Heaven will move on our behalf to bring it about. Faith-filled decrees and praise are key strategies in this hour. No matter how long any battle had lasted, victory is coming (see 2 Corinthians 2:14). It will be on earth as it is in Heaven!
So let's pray this month that:
 A Spirit of Faith will come upon us all, empowering us to be believing Believers who grab hold of God's Word and declare it again and again until the fullness of His Truth manifests in every area of our lives. (Isaiah 55:11)
 We will be like Joshua – boldly and courageously trusting the Eternal Truth of God's Word no matter what we might temporarily experience in the natural. (Joshua 1:9)
 His praises will be constantly on our lips. No matter what we are facing our first response will be to declare His greatness and expect His goodness. (Psalm 34:1)
 We will have the grace to move beyond what has been, and enter into what God is doing right now. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
 We will dig into His Word afresh, with a divine ability to grab hold of His truth and declare it with great faith. (Daniel 1:17)
 We will thank God, the Lord of Hosts, for the angels He is releasing into the earth, and ask Holy Spirit to mentor us in working with His angels to achieve His purposes.
