In mid-December, I bolted awake from a dream and sat straight up in bed when I heard a voice loudly say:

The enemy is trying to rob My people of their vision in this season and what’s to come in their lives!

I knew it had to do with the dream and God was sharing an important message that was not just for me, but for His church in this coming season. I immediately wrote down what He said, and then began to pray for clarification, understanding and revelation.  The following is what I believe God shared with me for us, His church, in this next season.

Please know that why you may not now feel as if your vision is being hindered right now, we must all be vigilant and be on guard to protect the promises God has for us in this coming season and new year.

The enemy is trying to rob you of your vision in this season and what’s to come in your life …. There is a full-on assault and war being waged against you and your future[1] – –  just as Abram couldn’t see past where he was at in the moment — God said he would be the father of nations[2] – But he (Abram) couldn’t see past his Right Now! — Abram even tried to make it happen in his own time and his own way –

What do you/we need to do?

  • some need our eyes adjusted

  • some need new or renewed eyes

  • some need restoration of sight

Here is the word for 2018 and what I believe God shared with me about what the year ahead will entail for His beloved people.

 

2018 is to be a year of Promise and Destiny

A year of New Beginnings

A year of stepping into your potential and God’s possible[3]

It’s a year of stepping away from the past and into a New Day

2018is to be a year of vision and growth

A year of pruning and planting.

 

 

It’s time to let go of the “I want it my way mentality” ~ it’s no longer to be your way or the highway.

Now is the time for it to BE HIS way[4] – All the way![5]

Relinquish control and trust God[6].  Lean forward and press into Him.[7]  Rely not on your own understanding but seek to gain His![8]

You have an enemy that is a prowling lion looking and seeking to devour and destroy you.[9]  Don’t give him free access to your life or you family.

Let go of disappointments and discouragement.

Let go of past failures.

Let go of offense and unforgiveness.

God would say to you – STOP!  Stop looking behind[10] ~ stop looking around[11] ~ stop holding on to the hurt and pain and shame AND instead run.[12] RUN into the NEW ~ Embrace the new God wants to do ~ Let go of the past – forgive – forget and move forward.

God is doing something brand new! ~ Are you ready?

God is doing a new thing!  Do you not perceive it?

God is ready to release something brand new to you and for you.

God is read to release something brand new through you and with you!

Will you receive it?

Will you participate in it?

Will you step into it?

 

 

“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:18-19

May you fully run into 2018 with clear vision, strength and boldness to pursue and receive all the amazing things God has in store for you!
