2 3 4 Get Ready For More

          

This morning I awoke at 2:34 am and I heard the Lord say…. 234 Get ready for more.

I got excited because I have been getting a whisper from the Lord for months now with the word “Windfall“.   

wind·fall

ˈwin(d)fôl/

noun

    * a piece of unexpected good fortune, typically one that involves receiving a large amount of money.”windfall profits”

    * synonyms:

    * bonanza, jackpot, pennies from heaven, stroke/piece of luck, godsend, manna from heaven

As I looked up the definition these 2 synonyms are what caught my attention.

           godsend, manna from heaven. 

So I asked the Lord to unpack this MORE; and Windfall for me….
I was taken to Deuteronomy 11. 
 “And if you will indeed obey my commandments that I command you today, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil. And he will give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be full. ~ Deuteronomy 11:13-15

 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way that I am commanding you today, to go after other gods that you have not known. ~ Deuteronomy 11:26-28
                    Bingo! Jackpot!
                    The godsend

god·send

ˈɡädˌsend/

noun

1. a very helpful or valuable event, person, or thing.

2. synonyms:

3. boon, blessing, bonus, plus, benefit, advantage, help, aid, asset; More
Did you catch that right there in the synonyms? -MORE 

The benefit, bonus, advantage, help and MORE is in the godsend, God himself and also His Angels He has put on assignment for you. 

The manna from heaven (miraculous provision from God) that’s our windfall. 

The building up for us to receiving more, the key that unlocks the more, the open heaven that makes way for the windfall is in our obedience to God and His Word. 
We build upon each right choice, each moment of uncomfortable obedience we tackle, that is what makes room for more and opens up the blessings of the Lord, our manna from heaven, our windfalls to fall down. 

Where there once was / God now supplies:

Lack / Abundance

Division / Divine Connections

Weakness / Strength

Curses / Blessings 

Fear / Courage

Grief / Hope

Confusion / Clarity

Despair / New Resolve

Disappointments / Determination

Sickness / Health 

Brokenness / Wholeness

Rejection / Protection

Rebellion / Obedience

Worry / Peace 

        2…3..4… Get ready for more!

Do You Struggle To Keep Your Promises


Do what you say you’re gonna do!

This was a big area for me that I struggled in judgement in. I didn’t seem to extend grace to anyone that backed out of a commitment. 

I had woundings from my childhood and marriage that I felt that broken promises had caused me great pain in my past so I built a hard spot for anyone else that didn’t keep their word or promises to me. 

Now I am not talking about sometimes things come up and can’t be avoided. We need mercy and grace for those instances and sometimes it’s just simply dealing with our own warped and deceptive perception and emotions of not taking those instances personal.  

It can’t always be avoided sometimes and I get that and know God is always in control and a Divine Detour could be in the works. 

The Lord Willing Response -is a good start so you are not having to go back on your word if you struggle in the area of keeping your word-but don’t use it as an excuse either.

Also don’t be so bound that it is something you begrudgingly do or go against your peace gauge; you may be needing to step away or break a commitment in order to say your best yes for you or your family or even God. 

What I am talking about is what I believe is a spirit that people operate in. They make big plans and promises consistently and even may vow their unending loyalty and commitment to you but are always backing out and usually in the very last minute with excuses after excuses and never follow through. They also have a quitter spirit and don’t like when you disagree with them. 

They usually have offense issues and are offended easily and have perception issues too;their perception is so full of deception. 

They also operate highly in paranoia and pity. 
They perceive things and think that their discernment and perception is fact but it is so warped and wrapped up in their fickle fleshly emotions they can’t recognize it and have a hard time separating fantasy from reality. They like escapism. 

They can also have confrontational, isolation and blame issues. They retreat offended then blame others for the distance they themselves created or they always want to force their opinions upon you to entice a confrontation. They can have an argumentative spirit too. 

I have struggled with all of those at some time in my life too. I am not pointing fingers; this is a Divine Download to help me and others too. 

This is not always a bad thing when you recognize someone operating in that spirit. It can be a good thing because once you recognize it you can set boundaries, pray to not get a spirit of criticism or judgement against them, but also rest assured in knowing that God is revealing and separating the wheat from the chaff for a reason. 

You pray and love them but also know that they just can’t be relied upon so sometimes you have to love them from a healthy distance until they are willing to break free from it themselves.

Ask God to help you recognize the faithful from the flaky in your life. 

 (Joking! But hey, that really is a great prayer!) 

If you suffer from this spirit – ask the Lord to help you break those patterns and start to follow through with what you say you will do. 

Thankfully when we are not promise keepers – God is always a Promise Keeper!
