"And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, 'Let me go, for the day breaketh.' And he said, 'I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.' And he said unto him, 'What is thy name?' And he said, 'Jacob.' And he said, 'Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.'" Genesis 32:24-28
God has downloaded this message to me that I want to share with you:
Things are about to change! It is a dawning of a new day and a new day is dawning! During this season, there are some things you will have to wrestle with alone, and unless you wrestle with those things, you will not see the blessing that God has downloaded into the equation of destiny, purpose and time manifested. There is a place in God where the space is big enough for ONLY you. Once you are there, you must press into His Secret Place. In this place you will have the greatest opportunity to wrestle with life-altering issues in prayer. Like Jacob, you will experience a sense of aloneness. It is the safest place to spend what I call "me-time." Everyone needs "me-time"--a time for you to discover who you really are. A time where you are not defined by what you do or did, but who God originally designed you to be. Do not allow others to define who you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Do not mistake your aloneness with loneliness. There is a difference between loneliness and aloneness. Loneliness occurs when there is an involuntary and obvious absence of people who contribute to your sense of belonging. Aloneness, on the other hand, is a voluntary state wherein a person positions himself/herself in a place of solitude and separation. In this text, Jacob chose solitude, so that he could wrestle with his destiny and future.
Wrestle With Your Destiny--"I Will Come Out With More!"
In this season, you must find your place of solitude to wrestle with your destiny. This is a season where prayer and fasting will catapult you into a realm of prosperity, health and success. When you choose this place, you will soon discover that you have chosen to dwell in the secret place of the Most High God. Wrestling with personal issues in this place will always cause you to emerge with more than what you discard there. You will always prevail over the enemy in this place. If you feel that you will come out with less, it means the enemy has prevailed over your life. Stay in this place with God until you break through. This is not the season for the enemy to prevail; this is the season for the Body of Christ to prevail. Decree and declare this over your situation: "I am coming out with more!" and "Lord, I will not leave until You bless me."
THE BEGINNING OF A SEASON OF REST
RATHER THAN WARFARE
Jacob's name was associated with a reproach. He had to wrestle with this because his name caused him to be stigmatized. The name Jacob, meaning supplanter and schemer, affected him in a very deep way. It was not only his birth name, but it had now become an integral part of his nature. All of his life he had to fight for everything that he acquired. He felt he had to take life in his own hands. Have you ever been in the place where your whole life and existence was predicated upon one fight after another? You are fighting for attention, fighting to be heard, fighting for peace, fighting for your life. Even now, you may be wrestling with some deep financial, emotional, spiritual, or personal issues. God spoke to me and told me that this is the ending of a season of warfare and the beginning of a season of rest. The struggle is over! You are no longer wrestling with the devil but with your own destiny.
So you might as well give in to the will of God concerning your life. God has given you power over all the power of the enemy. Now allow God to activate the hidden power and potential for growth and development, beyond your yesterday experiences. He has the power and holds the secrets to unleashing your true and authentic nature and removing all stigmas and attachments to your name.
Have you ever been to a point where you feel you have to take life into your own hands? Sometimes life gets desperate; you don't see any other way to survive. All of the odds were stacked against you, and you had to make your own way. You have been there for others, but when it was your turn, no one was there for you. I have been there too, but I learned to cast all my cares upon God.
Cycles Of Seven--A Season Of Rest
Life happens in cycles of seven. You have completed one cycle, and you are starting a new cycle of seven. How you exit one season determines how you enter a new season. You have to be able to walk out of the old in order to access the new.
God is re-programming your ear to hear a different kind of frequency. He is synchronizing and syncopating you to His symphonic and choreographic movements. I decree that in this season you will be in sync with the divine timing of God.
Everything in 2008 will work according to the timing of the Lord. The first quarter is already past, and what you hold as priority in the first quarter is going to determine what is going to happen in the next seven years. As with music, in order to move into a new movement, you must resolve the previous movement. Do not try to enter this new season without resolving things from the past season.
What God is doing in the first quarter is providing the thrust needed to begin anew and to experience breakthrough. Many of you have battled last year; you were in a cycle of frustration, lack, desperation, and it seemed as if things were not going to change. Like the proverbial saying, "If it was not one thing, it was another." Once you got through one challenge, another one was right on its heels. Do not despair. Help and divine intervention are on the way!
There are many believers that are falling between the cracks. The devil wants to keep you in an old cycle, a cycle where he had control over your destiny. The enemies of your soul want to create a cycle where you don't break through to the next level.
ARE YOU DOING THE RIGHT THING --
AT THE WRONG TIME?
You could be doing the right thing at the wrong time. Do not allow the spirits of frustration, distraction, anxiety, doubt or fear cause you to miss God in this season. You have to stay focused in this season. This is the year of breakthrough.
During this season, you are being transitioned into a new "me."
I hear the Lord say, "What is happening is you are ending a season of warfare, and you are entering a season of rest and celebration. A season where I will display and manifest My governmental anointing through you. What is needed now is thrust, momentum, consistency and commitment. Don't let up; don't give in. Hold fast to the profession of your faith. I am thrusting you into position where you will have to make some very hard decisions in order to seamlessly and smoothly move into something that is new. Therefore, this year will be a year of release, a year of circumcision and a year of new beginnings. You must release some things and some people. I will release some things to you, and some things will be released to you by people. I will release new mantles, gifts, anointing and opportunities."
No more stagnation; the water is rising. Water represents movement of the Holy Spirit; water represents the flow of the anointing. You must let go of the old in order to access the new. You will experience breakthrough shortly. A breakthrough is a sudden burst of anointing and revelation-knowledge that propels an individual or ministry past the point of an impenetrable threshold, shattering strongholds and then establishing new paradigms and relationships. I decree that this is your year for a breakthrough.
This Is The Year Of Open Heavens!
This is the year of the supernatural, exponential progression. God will do for you in the next 12 months what you could never do for yourself in 12 years. This is the year of the open heavens--the clouds are clearing. The sun will shine. He will cause His voice to be trumpeted and cause you to triumph over your enemies. This year will be characterized by open portals. Look for divine opportunities and supernatural ideas. He will make you first and not last. You will have dominion! He will cause you to progress. He will supernaturally cause you to accomplish great things. This is not just the era of the pulpit; this is the era of the pew. You are going to break through in your prayer life. God will release a new governmental anointing on your prayer life. You will no longer pray earthbound prayers; you will be able to make declarations from Heaven's supreme court. He will give you supernatural increase, and there shall be no more lack! You will decree a thing, and it shall be established. You don't have to settle for a good life; you can have the perfect life.
My prayer for you:
Father, You are perfect in all of your ways. You have measured the borders; You have weighed the mountains and scales in a balance. I thank You that things are about to shift--that we have entered into a new season.
I decree and declare 2008 is a year of new beginnings. I decree and declare that the courage, the capacity, the drive, the commitment and desire to walk away from old things and into the new is released into your Spirit now. As we proceed out of the first quarter, I decree we will not leave this quarter without seeing the manifestation of those things that were ordained before the foundation of this world.
I pray that we will be synchronized and syncopated to the timing of the Lord and that nothing will be withheld from us. I pray that we will now function without frustration and without hindrance. I decree and declare the heavens, and every portal, is swinging wide open. I decree access. I decree that everything in our lives is changing for the best. The struggle is over in Jesus' name! I command you to break through!
