Over the last couple of weeks, the Lord has been continually saying to me, “Hidden in plain sight.” I began to think about this and listen to what more the Lord would be saying about this.
I looked up what this term, hidden in plain sight, could mean. This is what I found:
1) be unnoticeable by staying visible in a setting that masks presence
2) something can be easily seen, but because it blends in with its surroundings, it is easily overlooked
In plain sight means: in a place that is easily seen
Hidden means: concealed, obscure
How can something be easily seen, yet obscure, concealed at the same time?
Sometimes things can be so obvious that we fail to see them. At times God may be showing us something, but doubt stops us from seeing it. Or we think, how can it be that easy? We often allow distractions and busyness to stop us from seeing what God is showing us in plain sight.
A year or so ago I had a vision and in this vision a friend of ours was coming to buy a bedding set from us. I found the comforter and bed skirt but could not find the pillow shams. I began looking everywhere and I went into a closet and got on my knees and lifted up something to look under it to see if they were there. When I lifted it up I found a Hot Wheels that I didn't know was there. I was surprised to find the Hot Wheels in the closet. It was unexpected.
God brought this vision back to mind and He said to me, “I am revealing what has been hidden.” He told me we are entering a season where He is revealing what has been concealed.
Proverbs 25:2 (NKJV) “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings to search out a matter.”
Luke 8:17 (NKJV) “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.”
Mark 4:22 (NKJV) “For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.” Jesus is speaking in this scripture.
What He conceals He reveals. He will reveal it when you can see it. He has been concealing some things and NOW it is TIME for Him to reveal them to you. They have been hidden in plain sight for you to see. And now is the time for a total reveal. I heard the Lord say,” NOW is your TIME to SEE. It is time for you to not look to the left or to the right but look straight ahead. Now is the time to get rid of all distractions and SEE. I have concealed things to reveal them. NOW is the time. Some things you see will surprise you, some you are already expecting, some you had no idea about. I say, “Get ready to see.”
So many things have been hidden in plain sight. Now it is time for you to get yourself in position to see. In going back to my vision I shared earlier, I found the Hot Wheels when I was in the closet on my knees, looking. The closet represented a quiet place where I could get with God and look and see undistracted. In this case what was hidden wasn't in plain sight, but it became that
way once I was seeking. I had to go look in order to see. God is saying to us in this season, “LOOK and you will SEE. I am revealing what has been hidden in plain sight and what has truly been hidden deep. It is time. I am revealing and showing you your next step and what is ahead. I am revealing what I have for you, secrets I want to reveal to you. Shuck off distractions, shuck off busyness and LOOK and you will SEE. Some things you will see have been there for a while. Some things are brand new and you are NOW READY TO SEE THEM.”
Wow, people of God, it is time to see. God is revealing to us what He has concealed and what has been hidden in plain sight. You are not waiting on God; He is waiting on you to see what He is revealing. It is time for MORE. It is time to SEE and SHIFT. God doesn't want you to stay comfortable, to stay where you are. There is more. I believe what some of you will see will catapult you into more if, you will allow it too. I believe what is seen by some of you will rattle your cage and get you out of your comfort zone, again, if you allow it to happen.
God says “It is time to see and shift.” I love that God is ready to reveal what has been concealed. Get ready people of God, it is about to get real. Let Him, allow Him to reveal to you everything He wants to. Take the time to see, take the time to hear, not just hear, but listen. Unveiling is happening, are you ready? Revealing is happening, are you ready?
I say,” YES LORD I AM READY. SHOW ME, SHIFT ME, I AM READY FOR MORE. Will you say this with me? We are just entering a season where HE is revealing what has been concealed. Be ready!!!!!

Last Friday as I was sitting waiting in line at the car wash, I saw a bird walking in the incredible wind that was blowing. As it walked, its feet mostly stayed on the path. The wind was blowing so hard that it was moving its long tail feathers way to the left, yet the bird was able to mostly stay on course. It wavered very little. Its feet moved a little from the straight line, but it stayed the course. It didn't let the fact that its tail was being hit hard by the wind stop it from staying the course. It was as if it kept its focus on the path, the course. It was as if the bird was so focused that he was using the wind to his advantage. I watched as the wind was blowing his tail so hard. He stepped into the direction the wind was blowing his tail and kept on going; he wouldn't be stopped. I knew it was prophetic and that the Lord was going to show me things through this.
The Lord began to speak to me about this. I watched that bird walking mostly steady as the wind was blowing so strong against his tail and yet he stayed focused on the path/the course that he was on. He really wasn't being affected by the force that was trying to come against him. It was as if he was so focused on where he was going that he could not be swayed to move any other direction.
The Lord began to show me that this is exactly how born again children of God need to be. Steadfast, immovable and focused on Him and on the course He has us on. We need to STAY the COURSE. The enemy wants to try to bring the wind of adversity against us and try to blow us and move us off of the path that God has us on. We must keep our focus on the course, the path God has us on and not be moved by the distractions of the enemy. When the enemy tries to blow us off of our path, the course or plan God has for us, God says in His Word in:
Isaiah 59:19 (NKJV) “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the West, and His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”
So if the enemy has tried to come at you, know that the Spirit of the Lord is there. Keep your focus and STAY THE COURSE. Do not allow the enemy, any of his distractions, or any of his attacks, to cause you to go off course, off path. Keep your focus on the path set before you by God. God has already gone ahead of you to prepare the path in front of you. He has already been into your future.
Psalm 139:16 (NIV) “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
How could God have written them down unless He has already been there. The enemy, the devil, wants to try to throw you off course. He wants to get you off the path God has ordained for you. Why? Because he knows who you will be and what you will accomplish walking on the path. The enemy does not want you to fulfill your destiny. We must stay focused and keep our eyes on Jesus. As we do this we will stay on the path He has for us. As we stay focused on Jesus and not the distractions of the enemy, we will stay the course and walk in the days God has ordained for us.
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV) “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Focus, stay the course. The more you focus on God the smaller the things the enemy tries to do look. The more you focus on the things the enemy is trying to do instead of God, the bigger the things the enemy is trying to do look. So let's all agree to keep our focus on Jesus and allow Him to take us wherever He wants to and do whatever He wants to do through us. What an incredible time to be a Child of God. You were created for such a time as this.
God says to you: “Keep your focus with fixed purpose, look straight ahead, stick to the path. Ignore the enemy's distractions. I have you in the palm of My hand. What I have planned and purposed for you I will do. Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked for even a moment. Don't turn to the right or to the left. You will hear My voice behind you telling you which way to go. Stay on path. I have you in My plan. Stay fixed and focused and lean in to Me. There is much I have for you and it is time for you to BE the MOVE

Revelation 3:6 (MSG) “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.”
Revelation 6:22 (MSG) “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Word Winds. The Spirit blowing through the churches.”
The New King James Version of Revelation 3:6 is: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
I love this scripture. I love how The Message Version words this scripture. It makes it more alive to me. What is Holy Spirit saying to the churches? Are your ears awake to what the Spirit of God is saying? You and I make up the church. So, if we make up the church, are we awake to what He is saying? The Spirit of God is speaking to us, the question isn’t just, are our ears awake, but are we listening?
Hearing is one thing, but listening is really paying attention to what you hear. Are our ears awake? We all, as born again children of God, should be listening to what the Spirit of God is saying. We should all have our ears awake. We should be aware and pay close attention to what Holy Spirit is saying.
Every word from God deserves our FULL and TOTAL attention. Our ears need to be awake. We need to pay attention. I am here to tell you that the Spirit of God is speaking to His people. The truth is, He is speaking. The question is, are our ears awake, are we listening? Many are wanting to hear the voice of
God. We want to know His direction for our lives and we want answers. The key is to have our ears AWAKE and to be listening.
Isaiah 30:21 (NIV) “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘this is the way; walk in it.’”
We will hear His voice. Keep your ears awake. It is more important now than ever before to keep our ears awake and listening to His voice. He has so many things that He wants to say to you and me. He has direction, instruction, and secrets to give to you. Get your ears AWAKE!!!!!
We are the church, God is and wants to speak to His church. He wants to speak to you. Hear and listen. Train your ears to hear Him. He is speaking—-and you too will know His Voice before you and behind you! He is the Voice of Promise, the Voice of Purpose, the Eternal, Life Giving Voice, the Voice that will propel you into your destiny, the Voice that will propel you into the NOW WORD of God for you.
ONE WORD FROM THE VOICE OF GOD WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Your ears need to be awake to hear Him. You need to be hearing, listening and perceiving what God is saying now more than ever. His Voice should be so familiar to you and me. Your Father’s voice, your Daddy God’s voice.
Another key is, once you hear, be willing and obey.
Isaiah 1:19 (NKJV) “If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land.”
It isn’t just about obeying, it is about being willing. We truly are in one of the most incredible times ever with the Lord. It is a great time to be alive and living for Jesus. You and I were created for SUCH A TIME AS THIS. I am so excited for what lies ahead and what My Daddy God wants to tell me. My ears are awake and I am listening Lord.
The next key is trusting God. We have already stepped into the greatest move of God the church or world has ever seen. SO, that being said, trust God when HE tells you to do something that has never been done before. Say something, when He tells you, that has never been said before.
Isaiah 43;19 (NKJV) “Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
New means it has never been done before. Get ready people of God. He is doing the NEW. I personally say, “YES LORD, I am willing to be the Pioneer. I trust You.”
I decree “Your ears are awake. Wake up ears.” Let’s hear what Daddy God is saying to us; let’s be willing and obedient, Let's make a decision today and decree, “I will hear Your Voice, I will listen to Your Voice , I am willing Lord, I will be obedient, I will be the Revival, I will be the move.
