Advancing to Maturity With Me
Recently I was awakened to the smell of roast cooking. Well, I wasn't cooking a roast, but the smell that awakened me was so strong it was undeniable. I was just lying there smelling roast. I knew it was a spiritual smell. Nothing was cooking. I began to seek the Lord on this to see what He wanted to show me and say to me through this. In the natural I knew this smell because I have cooked many roasts and some cooked as we were sleeping. But this truly was a spiritual smell. The smell of meat/roast beef means maturity.
The Lord began to speak to me and He said, "I am calling My sons and daughters to maturity. It is time to stop drinking milk and to get into the real ‘MEAT’ of things. Many have continued with the easy things, but I say to you it is time to advance. You would like to stay drinking milk, but that is not where I want you to stay. It is time for you to grow in spiritual maturity. It is time for you to scoot closer to the edge with Me and allow Me to move the edge The ‘MEAT’ will be new, like nothing you have ever tasted before, but I am in the new. I want to advance you and move you forward”
This smell I was awakened to was so powerful and strong that it filled the room. I believe this is significant. It was definitely an attention getter. Advancement is NOW. Growth is NOW. God wants to move you forward and advance you. This is His plan not yours.
Let's be honest right here, we all like to be comfortable where we are. A lot of people don't like to be stretched or challenged. We like to be in a comfort zone. But God is saying to you and me, “I want to stretch you, there is growing in the stretching. I am pulling your feet out of the ground you have been in and moving you to greater, higher ground. Grab hold, because this is happening. Do not stay stuck, move with Me. From this point forward your comfort zone is gone.”
Hebrews 5:13-14 (NLT) “For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn't know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.”
God is giving us an invitation to grow with Him and to advance with Him to the next level. Will you advance?
Hebrews 6:1 (TPT) “Now is the time for us to progress beyond the basic message of Christ and advance into perfection. The foundation has already been laid for us to build upon; turning away from dead works to embrace faith in God.”
Let's progress with Him. I will be honest with you; I love the stretching. I know that when God stretches me, I will grow. I know when He stretches me it is because He wants to give me more, grow me or advance me.
There are things that God has for you to do that will take stretching. It will take you being uncomfortable to advance. It is ok to be nervous, do it anyway. I have done so many things God has asked me to do being nervous or afraid. But, I can honestly say, He has always been there and He has always done through me what He has asked me to do. He can be trusted. I stop and think now that if I wouldn't have allowed Him to stretch me and if I wouldn't have yielded to His stretching I wouldn't have done all the things I have done with Him to this point. What is exciting to me is that, as much as I feel like I have been stretched by God, I know there is so much more stretching. I can't wait to advance with Him.
Sons and daughters of God let Him advance you from milk to meat. Let Him stretch you. Let Him advance you. There is so much more. Do not stay where you are, move with Him.
I hear God saying, “It is stretching season. It is your Kairos time to advance and grow. Take a deep breath, exhale, rest in Me and eat My meat. Take a deep breath, breathe ME in and yield to the stretching and the growth.”

Be Intimate And Bare It All
I have to share this incredible vision with you and what the Lord spoke to me as I was having this vision. It took me by surprise and really spoke to me and has me thinking and searching and I pray it does this for you too.
In this vision my husband and I were in the shower together. I was looking at us in the shower and at the same time seeing from being in the shower, if that makes sense at all. I could see from inside the shower but at the same time it was as if I was watching a movie of this. As we were in the shower Jesus came up to the shower door and stood there looking in. He just stood there looking at us. Then suddenly He began to speak to us.
Jesus spoke to us and said,” I want My people to let Me into the most intimate parts of their lives, the most intimate parts of their hearts. Will you let Me in?” The love in His eyes as He spoke these words was overwhelming.
Now as far as my husband and I are concerned, having Jesus look at you while you are in the shower is VERY intimate. This is a very personal blog, but I knew I had to share it with God's people. He asked,” Are you willing to bare it all?”
We all have or have had places in our hearts and in our lives where we haven't let anyone in, not even God. He wants us to let Him into those places and into those areas to heal us and set us free and to release us from those things and into what He has.
Jeremiah 33;3 NKJV
“ Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
James 4:8 TPT
Move your heart closer and closer to God, and He will come even closer to you.
Psalms 73;28 TPT
But I'll keep coming closer and closer to you, Lord Yahweh, for Your name is good to me. I'll keep telling the world of Your awesome works, my faithful and glorious God.
Having Jesus walk up to you and stand and look at you while you are in the shower is extremely intimate. And then He speaks and says,” I want to be in the most intimate part of your life and your heart. Will you bare it all to Me?” Wow, talk about rattling you and opening your eyes. He wants to do something in you and for you that only He can do. But, we have to let Him into those places and be REAL with Him. Stop hiding things from your Daddy God and bare it all. He can be trusted. Let's be honest, He already knows what is there. He wants you and I to be intimate with Him. Which tells me, HE WANTS TO BE INTIMATE WITH US.
Wow, Jesus wants to be intimate with us. This tells me a few things:
1) There are things in us and in our hearts He wants to heal and get out
2) There are things of Him that He wants to put in us.
3) He loves us so much that He wants into those parts of our lives and our hearts to heal and set us free and to fill those places with His overwhelming love.
As I write these words I hear the Lord saying, “ I love you with an everlasting love. I want into the most intimate parts of your lives and your hearts to heal and free you so that nothing can hold you back or prevent you from receiving My love fully. There are things in your heart that have prevented you from receiving My love and acceptance fully and I want to flush that out of you. Be intimate with Me. I can be trusted. As you are intimate with Me you will feel My healing balm cover those places and heal you. You will feel My overwhelming love saturate you and you will never be the same. Bare it ALL to Me. I will flood your very being and soul with My love. I am looking at you waiting for you to bare it all and be intimate with Me.”
This is the time. This is our KAIROS moment to be absolutely bare before the Lord. Tell it all to Him. Hold nothing back. He is wanting to do something for us that only He can do. As I type this I see Jesus looking at me and flooding me with His overwhelming love. I am wrecked!!! I am wrecked.!!!!
Allow Him to invade you. Let Him in those places you have closed off. Let Him on the other side of the wall you have put up. It is time we totally open up to our Daddy God. When He says He wants into the most intimate parts of us you know there is a GREAT purpose for this. It is your KAIROS moment. Let Him in!!!! Bare it all, be exposed! The love I see in His eyes as He looks at me is overwhelming and I am WRECKED! Let Him WRECK you. You will forever be changed!!!

Decree and Watch It Happen
I have been seeing the same vision over and over again. In this vision I see decrees coming out of your mouth and going into the ears of God. As you are decreeing, I see you believing what you are saying and He is hearing your decrees and he sees that you believe what you are decreeing. As fast as you decree something and believe what you are decreeing and as He hears you, IT HAPPENS.
There are two keys here in this:
2) Believing what you are decreeing
When we decree something and believe what we say it gets established. We have to shift from just saying words to decreeing what we believe, to decreeing what God says to us and about us, and what His Word says.
I hear the Lord saying, “Speak, speak, speak! Speak My Word, speak what I have said to you. Decree what I say over you in My Word. Decree My promises. Decree what you want to see in your life. My sons and daughters are led by My Spirit. You have My mind. Decree what you want. What you want is the desires that I have placed in you. I have placed dreams in you and I am ready to fulfill those dreams. I have given and placed desires in you so that I can GIVE them to you. Now it is time for your dreams to be fulfilled. It is decreeing time!!!!! It is believing time!!! This is not time to doubt Me or what I have said. It is time to rise up and believe Me. Kick doubt and unbelief out of your mind and out of your life. Decree, decree, decree. Do not be silent. I created you with a mouth and a voice. It is time that you use both. The enemy wants to silence you so that you won't decree anything. But, I say DECREE!!!! It is time that the desires of your heart come to be. Believe Me, I can be trusted.”
Job 22:28 (KJV) “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
Mark 11:22-23 (NKJV) “So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.’”
In the vision I had I saw the words you decree going up and what you had decreed happening instantly. God is accelerating things for you and me. What you decree will be established. Say what you believe and believe what you say. As soon as you line up your believing and your decreeing with what God is saying, you will see it happen.
I hear the Lord saying, “I will cause what you say, that lines up with My life for you, to happen. Delay is over!!! I am removing all obstacles from your path. Your part is to believe Me, decree and get doubt and unbelief out of your life. You are who I say you are. You can do what I say you can do. And you can have what I say you can have. Kick doubt and unbelief out of your life and out of your thinking. Get rid of all stinkin’ thinkin’. And remember My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. Step into My thoughts and ways and step out of your own.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV) “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) “‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”

Embrace My Rustling and Ride My Wind
I hear a rustling sound. I hear leaves rustling in the wind. Then quickly I see a strong wind blowing the leaves where it wants to take them. As I was listening to the Lord on what He wanted to say through this, He began to speak.
“I am causing a rustling in your Spirit and when you feel it, expect My wind to blow you where I want to take you. As you feel the rustling deep within you, My wind will come suddenly and blow you exactly everywhere I want you to go. But you must yield to the rustling and My wind. You must yield and surrender to where I want to take you. I am not just asking you to just be obedient, but to be willing also. I am causing a rustling inside you and this rustling will stir you up. As you are stirred up you will begin to get excited for what I am about to do, then I will do it. It will be unprecedented. I am causing the rustling and My wind will blow you; ride the wind"!!!
I want to share the definitions of these two words so it will help us understand what God is saying. I love that He is using the word unprecedented (never before known or experienced). I know we better be ready because this is happening. I am saying YES to God and I am willing and will be obedient. Rustle inside Me Lord and blow Me wherever you want. I am ready!!!!
Rustling means to move, proceed, or work energetically; to cause such sounds by moving or stirring something; to move or stir so as to cause a rustling sound.
Unprecedented means without previous instance; never before known or experienced; unexampled or unparalleled.
Enter this season with a willingness and obedience like never before. Say YES to God and lay down your agenda and your plan and say, “Not my will but Yours Lord”.
John 3:8 (NKJV) “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Acts 2:2 (NKJV) “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.”
Isaiah 6:8 (NKJV) “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying; “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
Will you say, “Here I am Lord. send me?” Will you let Him cause a rustling in you and let Him blow you wherever HE wants? This is something He wants to do and He says He will do it. Now it is up to us to do our part. Don't misunderstand me, it isn't about works, it is about surrender. That is our part in this. Surrender, willingness, obedience and trust.
I hear the rustling getting louder and I know the wind is blowing harder. Be ready. This is happening. I am so ready for something this incredible. God said unprecedented.
I hear the Lord saying to you, “Fear not, I will be with you. Do not try to lean on your own understanding in this. Trust Me. I am in this, I am doing this. Ride My wind and let Me take you wherever I want to. You will not be disappointed. I am in the rustling and I am in the wind. I can be trusted. I have so much ahead for you. Do not stay where you have been, let Me take you forward and advance you in unprecedented ways. This is your season of acceleration.”
