It is time for advancement for the Body of Christ. It is time we advance the Kingdom of God. It is time we pursue and overtake. It is time to take back what has been stolen from us. I heard the Lord say, ” It is time for advancement . Advance, advance , advance. It is time to stop running from the enemy. It is time to advance, pursue and overtake”.
I began to see a vision and in the vision the Lord showed me the Remnant. The remnant grabbed cages,shackles, prison doors and the gates of hell and began to shake them and as they did the cages broke open, the shackles fell apart and fell off, prison doors exploded open and the gates of hell were destroyed. We began to shake everything and what had been bound was set free, what had been held up was released and what had been restricted was freed.
I Samuel 30;8 NKJV
So David inquired of the Lord , saying, “ Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “ Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”
God is saying to you and I today, “ Pursue for you will surely overtake and recover all. It is time for advancement.”
We can take this word and pursue overcome and recover all or, we can sit back and stay where we are and not advance. This is a direct word from God to us for this time. He wants to advance us and move us forward. He wants us to recover. He wants us to
advance against the enemy and not sit back and let the enemy advance against us.
He wants the remnant to advance, grab the cages, shackles, prison doors and the gates of hell and shake everything loose. He showed me that in this case, what He is wanting to do and us to do when we storm the gates of hell is to let loose what has been restricted by the enemy. To break every chain that is holding the body of Christ captive. As I am typing this, I saw Jezebel being destroyed , I saw religion shattered, I saw legalism fall to the ground and be consumed by the fire of God.
There is a shaking taking place in the Church and in the world and God is using the remnant to do it. The remnant is arising.
It is time for ADVANCEMENT. Are you ready? Will you be a cage shaker? WIll you be a chain breaker ? Will you be a prison breaker? Will you be the gates of hell destroyer? It is time the giant slayer in you wakes up and advances.
People of God, He is doing it!!! Will you be the ones He uses?
Matthew 16; 17-19 NKJV
Jesus answered and said,” Blessed are you Simon Bar- Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in Heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven.
The gates of hell shall not prevail against us. We have been given the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven.
I Samuel 17; 45-48 NIV ( paraphrased by me )
David spoke to the giant and said,”I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty. He will give all of you into our hands.” He ran at the giant. He didn't stand there and take it. He first declared victory, then he ran at the giant, overtook him and defeated him.
God is saying,” advance, shake those cages loose and open, break those chains, destroy the gates, recover all. It is time remnant to arise and change the world. It is time remnant to arise and do some shaking. Remnant, it is time to advance and overtake. I am shaking things, I am shaking people. It is time to wake up, My people, and be who I have called you to be and live how I have called you to live. You are the Shakers , the Gamechangers, the Giantslayers. I am with you. You will not fail. You are victorious. Advance My sons and daughters advance.”

As I was seeking the Lord for this week's blog, this is what He said, “Harvest Your Pearls.” I began to listen to Him to hear what more He had to say on this statement. He said: “I have much to say to My sons and daughters and I have much to show them and release to them. As I release these things to them, speak things to them, and show them things, I want them to harvest what I am releasing, speaking and showing them. I have pearls of wisdom, pearls of knowledge, pearls of revelation and even secret pearls that I have kept hidden for such a time as this. Now is release time,” says the Lord.
Matthew 13:45-46 (NKJV) “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” This pearl he found was so valuable to him that he sold all he had in order to have it.”
God is saying to us that He is releasing pearls to us. He didn't say we had to pay for these pearls. He said He is releasing them. His instruction to us concerning these pearls is to harvest them. One of the definitions of harvest is to gather and reap. God is telling us He is releasing and we are to reap the harvest. We are to harvest the pearls.
Revelation 21:21 (NKJV), “The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.” Pearls were of great value. God has chosen to use this word to show us what He is going to release to us is valuable and true treasures. Many are going to be harvesting great and powerful revelations from God. Many will harvest powerful wisdom and many will harvest incredible knowledge. Many, I believe, have been waiting for God to reveal and release secret things to them. Now is your time. I also know, because God revealed it to me, that many of us are the pearls that God has been shaping and forming and now is your time to be released. You are the pearl to be released.
Colossians 3:3 (NKJV) “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
The hidden ones are being revealed and released. Get ready to be released. God is releasing the pearls. Get ready to harvest your harvest of pearls. Harvest also means to gather a crop: to gain, win or use. I truly believe that each one of us can harvest every pearl that God is releasing if we believe Him and what He says. If we do this, we will harvest our pearls.
You may be asking, “How do I harvest these pearls?” The greatest thing we can do when God speaks is to believe what He says. He will tell us if there is more action to take. Take some time to be alone with God and ask Him what pearl or pearls He wants to release to you specifically. Anytime God wants to give us something, it requires us to believe Him. We need to believe that He has spoken and that He will do it. Get yourself prepared to receive/harvest your pearls. If it is you He wants to release, if you are the pearl, get ready and allow Him to release you, and to release what He has put inside of you. I am so excited to harvest the pearls that God has for me. I will not miss out on one pearl that He has for me, I will harvest them all. Because, I believe Him, I trust Him. I am going to gather the pearls He is releasing to me. I am encouraging you to do the same. It is the time of release and harvest. He releases, we harvest. Harvest your pearls, sons and daughters of God. Let Him also release the pearl that you are.
When I think of pearls I think of a valuable gem, a precious stone, a true gift and treasure. I believe what God is saying and I cannot wait to harvest my pearls. Valuable things will be released to you.
I heard the Lord say this as I was writing this blog, “Many of My sons and daughters will receive debt cancellation, supernatural debt cancellation. Many will receive multiple raises, increased bonuses and doubled income. I am moving in incredible ways on behalf of My sons and daughters. Expect the impossible to take place in your life. What you thought was impossible, you will see manifest now. Suddenness will be your normal,” says the Lord.
Harvest your pearls!!!!

My husband was sharing with me this week something he read in a devotional about how God's thoughts toward us are always about His largeness not our smallness. As I read it the Lord spoke to me and said,” Smallness limits Me, but largeness, thinking large, opens things wide open for Me to give you so much more and do so much more. Thinking large, believing large, expands your capacity to receive from Me. “Think and believe LARGE!,” says the Lord.
Last week I wrote about what God had said to me about casting your net and the transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous. Now He is speaking about His largeness versus our smallness. He is trying to get great, huge things to us.
Romans 8 :17 TPT “And since we are His true children we qualify to share all His treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God Himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that He is and all that He has. We will experience being co-glorified with Him provided that we accept His sufferings as our own.”
We must accept what Jesus did on the cross for us as our own. He suffered for us. He took all sin, sickness, disease, poverty, wrath, everything on His body and then gave us His righteousness, all that He is and all that He has. He has everything. That means we need to accept all that He has done on our behalf.
In other Bible versions it says joint heirs, co-heirs with Christ.
One of the definitions of heir is: a person who inherits or is entitled to inherit the rank, title or position of another.
The Biblical definition of heir is: someone who has been appointed to receive an inheritance. Romans 8:17 says we inherit all that He has and all that He is. ALL means ALL!
God is saying we need to stop thinking and believing small and begin to think and believe large. We need to leave smallness behind and step into the largeness of God's thinking toward us. God is wanting us to come out of agreement with smallness and come into agreement with His largeness. He wants to get things to us, that is why He is speaking about His thoughts of largeness toward us instead of our thoughts toward ourselves of smallness.
At the Cross there was a divine exchange that took place. Jesus took all that we were and had and gave us all that He was and had. We have to see ourselves in the place that God has put us. We have to align with His thoughts toward us and not our own. God said He is transferring the wealth of the wicked to the righteous, that is you and me, if you are saved/born again. He wants us to cast our net and pull in ALL He is giving us and has for us.
God is saying today, “Stop thinking and living small. Break agreement with smallness. Come out of alignment with smallness. I am not into smallness. Stop limiting Me. I know the plans I have for you and they are LARGE. I know your future, it is great, large and tremendous. Don’t limit Me by agreeing with smallness. Cast your net into the largeness that I have for you. It is time to stop casting your net into smallness. I am in largeness and My
thoughts of you and for you are large. “Cast your net into My realm of largeness and bring in the harvest.” says the Lord.
God is telling us that in a time where the media and the world is saying lack, He is saying large. We must come out of agreement with everything the world is saying and come into agreement with what Jesus did on the cross and His largeness.
Let’s allow Him to make us His Poster Child, as my husband says, of His largeness and His goodness. Let’s look different from the world because we believe in Him and have shifted into His largeness and shifted out of our smallness. Let’s start casting our nets to the other side, from smallness to largeness!
Some of you may be thinking that you are already living in God's largeness, but God is saying to you, “There is more. I have more for you. I have increase for you. I have largeness for you. Leave the realm of smallness in any area and enter My realm of largeness. Allow Me to change your thinking from smallness to My largeness,” says the Lord.
It is time, people of God, to shift into God's largeness. Allow Him to dream for you. He is a good, good Daddy. He is ready to bring His largeness into your life. He is ready for you to receive all that Jesus did for you on the cross. We live how we believe. If you are believing wrong or believing small, allow Him to shift you. It is time for you to live LARGE!!!!!

Last Sunday, May 29th, while I was at church the Lord spoke to me and said, “I am about to transfer the wealth of the wicked to the righteous.” Wow, how many are ready to receive this? I know I am. I believe Lord, I believe. Then, as I was thinking and praying about this week's blog, He said, “Cast Your Net.”
So I began to think about this and listen to Him to reveal it to me.
I was sharing this with my husband Jay, and God was revealing it to me as were we're speaking.
He was showing me and speaking to me that we as tithers and givers have been receiving from Him from one dimension and it was time to “cast our nets” into another dimension. He is transferring the wealth of the wicked to the righteous. It is time we have more faith and more trust in Him. It is time for radical believing and radical faith in our Daddy God. In John 21:6 (NKJV), Simon Peter and others went out fishing, at a point when they were out Jesus gave them instructions in verse 6 “And He said to them, ‘Cast the net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.’ So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of the fish.”
God had them cast their net on the other side and they pulled in a great harvest. God is wanting us to cast our net into a greater realm. We are already reaping a harvest from our tithes, offerings and giving, but there is more. He is wanting us to “Cast Our Net” and bring in the wealth of the wicked that He is transferring to us.
How do we do that? We do that by believing that He is doing it. He has told us what He is going to do and He has given us instructions. He is transferring the wealth of the wicked to the righteous and we are to cast our net. When they followed Jesus’ instructions and cast their net on the other side, there was so much in their net they could not draw it in. And now, He is telling us to cast our net. People of God get ready to bring in a mighty harvest, an abundance, increase and overflow.
He is doing it. He is transferring the wealth of the wicked to the righteous, we are to believe Him and receive.
Proverbs 13:22 “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.”
The sinner's wealth is stored up and God is saying He is transferring this wealth to the righteous. I am personally going to do a prophetic act of casting my net. I encourage you to do the same. It is time we shift to the other side and cast our net into deeper waters and into this greater realm of wealth. God said it, I believe it. It is time for TRANSFER!!!! It is time to CAST YOUR NET!!! Get ready sons and daughters of God, the transfer has started. Cast your net, receive the transfer!!!!!
God is saying to His sons and daughters, “Cast Your Net. It is time to reap the harvest. It is reaping/harvest season for you.
Cast your net and pull in the harvest. Cast your net and pull in the transfer. It is not only reaping/harvest season, it is transfer time”, says the Lord.

I heard the Lord say, “It is time to see with your eyes, hear with your ears, and move with your feet”. IT IS TIME!!!!!! What is God saying to us through this word? He is ready for us to see what He is showing us and to see with a NEW perspective, His perspective.
He is ready for us to hear what He is saying to us. Not just hear Him, but listen to His voice and what He is saying, and then it is time to move your feet with Him. So many times we may see what God is showing us and hear what He is saying but we are afraid to move our feet and put into action our faith in what He has shown us or spoken to us. It is time to step out in faith and trust in your Daddy God and move out on what He has said or shown you.
We have entered the Third Great Awakening and God is wanting to use you and me in NEW things, in signs, wonders and miracles. He is speaking, are you listening? Not just hearing, are you listening? He is showing you things, are you seeing? Are you looking to see? When He shows you or speaks to you and wants you to do something, are you moving? God is wanting to do greater
works through you. He is wanting to do even greater things than we see in the Book of Acts. You were created for such a time as this. You were specifically born in this time. He knew exactly when He wanted you to be on this Earth.
Hearing is: the act of perceiving sound. Listening is: to give attention with the ear; heed: obey. God is wanting you to not just hear, but to listen. He wants us to not only see, but to be looking for what He is going to show us. He is then wanting us to move. He wants you to jump into this Great Awakening with your eyes and ears wide open and your feet ready to move when He says.
God knew the impact He wanted you to make.
Psalms 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.”
God has already been into your future before you were ever created. He is waiting for you to see, hear, and move with Him in the days He wrote down and ordained for you. IT IS TIME!!!!
Isaiah 43:19 (NIV) “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.” Are you ready, sons and daughters of God? It is time. He is going to be revealing things that have been concealed for such a time as this. Get ready to perceive them. He will show you, speak to you, then you can move. Be in tune with Him, with His voice so that when He speaks you will hear, when He shows you, you will see, and then you can move. You will perceive it so that when it happens, and it is time, you will move with Him.
Perceive means: to become aware of, know, or identify by means of senses. When we watch, hear, listen and perceive, we are ready when God says move. Be ready, people of God, you are called to BE the move. He is ready. He is wanting you to be ready. You were chosen to be alive now for the Third Great Awakening. Get ready, get ready, get ready.
God says to you, “I have much to show you, much to tell “you, I am ready to take you into the greatest time of your life thus far. I am going to accelerate you, advance you and increase you in massive ways. I am moving you into the realm of ‘nothing is impossible to him who believes’. I am asking you to believe Me for more, more, more. To those who will believe and trust Me, I will show
you incredible things, speak things to you that only I know, and advance you exponentially. Get ready to see, hear, listen and perceive, it is time to advance, it is time to move in the impossible, it is time to move in the supernatural like never before.

My husband and I have experienced firsthand the results of ridiculous faith. Right now we are on a new adventure that is requiring even more ridiculous faith. In my natural thinking it is even greater than before. God will challenge us and stretch us to believe Him for more and then even more. I believe God is taking us into a season of stretching and rattling us to believe Him for more.
Who is in this with me? Who is ready for more? Who is ready for ridiculous results? Who of you are ready for God to stretch you and rattle you so much that you become uncomfortable? I hope you say you are. Because in that stretching and rattling you will grow tremendously. In that stretching and believing God ridiculously, He will give you ridiculous results.
Luke 1;37 NKJV
“ For with God nothing will be impossible.”
Believing God for what He wants to do isn't always easy but it is always rewarding.
Mark 9;23 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “ If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
All things are possible to who? To him who believes.
It is time for radical faith,radical believing, stretching and rattling.
And therefore it will be time for radical results. It is time we trust God ridiculously. It is important to God that we believe Him.
As I said earlier God is stretching and rattling my husband and I yet again to believe Him ridiculously. As my husband and I were
thanking God for what He is doing in this ridiculous faith step He is having us do and thanking Him for the results that are happening and will happen, and thanking Him for how good He is, this is what He said to me:
“ Thank you for believing Me.”
Wow, for God to thank me for believing Him caught me by surprise. It showed me how much it means to God for us to believe Him.
Numbers 14:11 NKJV
“ Then the LORD said to Moses: “ How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have perfomed for them?”
Can you see how important believing God is?
So, that being said, I am going to believe God even more ridiculously than ever before. When the strectching is over you will realize that the stretching was worth it. You believing God ridiculously will produce ridiculous results.
When we ask God for something, believing Him ( of course it will be what He wants for your life because He gives you the desires of your heart), scripture says we will have whatever we ask for in prayer, if we believe. So be careful what you ask for and what you are believing. Mark 11;25 NKJV.
When God thanked me for believing Him, it really blessed me more than I can put into words. We have seen what God will do when you step out and believe Him ridiculously. In a time when the world and the media are screaming lack , God is saying, “ Let me stretch you, let Me rattle your cage, believe me ridiculously. You will not be disappointed. You can trust Me. The reason I want
you to do this is because I have incredible things I want to give you, ridiculous gifts I want to put into your hands. Now is the time!!! It is time for the rattling , the shaking and the stretching. Will you let me do this? Will you receive the ridiculous from Me by believing Me ridiculously?”
So let's all join together to be rattled , stretched and shaken by God. Let's all step out in ridiculous faith and trust in our Daddy God and watch Him do ridiculous things for us. I say, “Yes Lord Yes. I am in. Let's do this. Stretch me Lord, rattle me Lord, I am ready for more and even more.”

As I was driving a few days ago I was listening to the radio and I heard the lyrics of the song say, “I will carry you.” It was referring to the Lord carrying us. I instantly heard the Lord speak to me and say. “To those I have been carrying, it is time for Me to put you down and for you to run forward and move on. It is time for you to run into your destiny.”
God that is saying, “To those of you that are in a process, to those that have BEEN in a process, your process, this process you have been in is over and it is time to run your race. It is time that we run together to fulfill your destiny. It is time we run together and accomplish great things together.”
This totally fired me up. If you have been in a process, God is saying it is time to come out of that process and move on, move forward. I can only speak for myself, I am totally excited to get out of this process and see what is ahead. I know God has truly been carrying me in some areas and for that I am so grateful. But, to say that I am excited for Him to put me down and take me out of that process is an understatement. It says to me that I am now ready to move on, I am now ready to move forward. I am ready to run with God and do great things WITH Him.
You and I are to walk with God, to work with Him, not for Him. When you walk or work with someone you won’t be going in opposite directions. When you walk and work with God you are aligning yourself with Him. Since you are walking and working side by side with God your focus will be on Him. When you are
constantly walking and or working with someone you're going to understand them better than you ever did. You are going to know His heart. Walking and or working with God is not just praying to Him or reading His Word; it is a lifestyle. It becomes intimate. It is a journey. If I simply work for God, then many times it becomes about performance and what I can do and my focus becomes more on myself. But if I am working with God I am watching His moves and I want to know His heart so that I can be His partner so to speak. It becomes a journey we take together and not separate. It becomes our journey together and not Him carrying me, but doing and being great together. It becomes a partnership.
God is ready to set you down, release you and run with you. Are you ready to let Him? Not only has God been with you in the process, sometimes He has even carried you, now He is going to set you down, release you and walk and even run with you.
If you work FOR God, do ministry FOR God instead of with Him, you can get burned out, tired and even be unfruitful. But, if you are working WITH God, doing ministry WITH God, you are constantly looking and finding where He is moving and you are joining in with His activities, His plan, and you will last for a whole lifetime without getting tired or burned out. Ministry is not a performance for God, but a participation in work with Him and in Him. Faith is working with God and like God.
Philippians 4:13 (NKJV) “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Psalms 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.”
God saw, ordained and wrote your days before one of them ever came to be. All your days have already been ordained.
He has already been into your days, that is how He could ordain them and write them down. So, all that being said, this is a scriptural reason to help you understand it is better to work with God and walk with Him instead of for Him. He is ready to put you down and for you to run with Him and do great things with Him. It is time for you to walk with God into your ordained days that have been written down.
Allow God to put you down and instead of Him carrying you. Get in step with Him and walk with Him. Trust Him. He is ready to get you and take you out of the process you have been in and move you forward.
He is saying to you “I am here. Walk with Me. I am taking you out of the process and now it is time to move forward. You have been there long enough and NOW I AM moving you out. I am breaking you through and breaking you out. IT IS YOUR RELEASE TIME!!!!!” says the Lord.
Micah 2:13 (NIV) “The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the Lord at their head.”
God has gone before you, He is breaking open the gate and it is time for you to go out. He is with you. Your process is through, it is time to break out and walk WITH God. The carrying time is over through this process. He is putting you down and walking with you.

As I was seeking the Lord for this blog He instantly spoke to me and said “May…. The Month of Manifestation.”
If you have been believing God for things, expect them to manifest this month. Believe, people of God, Believe. Oh the excitement I feel inside as I write this. When God says it, He performs it. He does not lie. We must believe.
Matthew 21;22 NIV
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
I believe God is challenging us to believe Him. This is a setup from God. Because when we believe, we will receive. He is wanting us to believe Him for what we have been asking Him for and standing for. And as we do He will MANIFEST it in our lives.
Remember something very important here, we aren't waiting on God, He is waiting on us. God is asking us to rise above distractions, battles, discouragement, weariness and BELIEVE!!!!!
“May…. the month of MANIFESTATION!!!!” I am going to be believing God for the things I have been believing Him for and I have been standing for. I am shifting into recklessly believing Him, NO DOUBT, NO DISBELIEF AT ALL. He spoke to me and said, ”May…. the month of MANIFESTATION.” And now He is saying the same thing to you. Will you BELIEVE recklessly and with full abandonment to Him?
I also know God is saying that we will see greater manifestations of signs, wonders and miracles starting this month. If you have never seen a sign, wonder or miracle flow through you, get ready, He is going to do it. BELIEVE, PEOPLE OF GOD BELIEVE.
It truly is time for the Church to awaken and rise up. You, People of God are the church. It is time to go out and BE who you are
called to be. It is time to go out and RE-present Christ to the world.
I John 4;17 NKJV
Love has been perfected among us in this : that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
II Corinthians 5;20 TPT
We are ambassadors of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ's behalf, “ Turn back to God and be reconciled to Him.”
It is time to go RE-present Christ to the world.
He is waiting for us to MANIFEST Him to the world.
I am SO excited for May. I am thankful it has already started. I will be believing and expecting for the manifestation of all I want for my life and my family. I will also be believing recklessly and expecting radical manifestations of signs ,wonders and miracles through me. Why? Because God said so. I am here to encourage you today, “ If God said it to you, He will do it.”
You can trust Him. He will never fail you or disappoint you!!
It is time we step up our game.
“May…. the month of manifestation!!!!: God said it. It will happen .
We just have to believe.
So many Prophets are declaring God's words to us. And releasing what God is saying.
That is what this blog is about and what God is saying to us.
“ May…. the month of MANIFESTATION!!”
WIll you believe?
II Chronicles 20;20 NKJV
So they arose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, : Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His Prophets, and you shall prosper.”
The Word of God says , believe in the Lord your God and you will be established, believe the Prophets and you will prosper.
Will you believe the Word of God ? Will you believe the Prophets?
If so you will be established and you will prosper .
This word today is straight from the heart of God to you. From a Prophet to your life. Believe. Receive your MANIFESTATIONS this month! Also allow the Lord to manifest through you as well as for you. GET READY FOR MANIFESTATIONS

The Lord is continually speaking to me about being RELENTLESS. So let’s look into being relentless and what God is saying. I believe God is saying to us at this time, “PURSUE AND OVERTAKE.”
It is time to be RELENTLESS in our pursuit of God and in the things of God and it is time to stop running from the devil and allowing him to steal from you and take up camp in your life.
Relentless means—determined, ferocious, fierce, unstoppable, unbending, stop at nothing, unflinching. It is time to be relentless in our pursuit of God, overtaking enemy forces, recover and advance in the things God has planned for each of us to recover the things the devil has stolen from us.
I Samuel 30:8 (KJV) “And David required at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He answered him, pursue: for thou shall overtake them, and without fail recover.
I Samuel 30:18 (KJV) “And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives.”
Pursue–to go or proceed after, to follow with a view to overtake, to chase, to seek
Overtake—to take by surprise, to capture, to catch up with and pass, to befall someone suddenly or unexpected.
Recover— to get back or regain, to reclaim, to reclaim from a bad state, to get or regain that which was lost.
First and foremost, we need to be RELENTLESS in our pursuit of GOD!!!! We need to seek Him and spend time with Him.
David was a man after God's heart.
Acts 13:22 (NKJV) “And when He had removed him, He raised up for David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’”
I believe David was sold out to God. He wasn't perfect, but he pursued God. Look at the results of what God told him to do and what happened. He pursued and overtook. He had victory, he recovered.
I Samuel 17:45-48 (NIV) David said to the Philistines, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defiled. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give all of you into our hands.”
As the Philistines moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. David RAN towards the giant, he didn't wait, he said, ''I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty.” He said, “THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD WILL DELIVER YOU INTO MY HANDS.”
He defeated the giant, he didn't stand there and take it. He first DECLARED victory, then he RAN at the giant and OVERTOOK him, he DEFEATED him. He declared it, he pursued the giant, he ran at him, he overtook him, he recovered what the giant had tried to take.
It is time Sons and Daughters of God; the tables have turned. It is time we stop running and allowing the enemy into our camp, our land. It is time we pursue, overtake and recover what he has stolen. It is time we WAKE up and PURSUE!!!!
Isaiah 60:1 (NIV) “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you”
God is saying to you today, “IT IS TIME. YOU WERE CREATED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. PURSUE, OVERTAKE AND RECOVER, I AM WITH YOU. YOU WILL SURELY OVERTAKE AND RECOVER.”
God is saying to you, “WATERS ARE BREAKING FORTH IN YOUR WILDERNESS AND STREAMS IN YOUR DESERT. THIS IS YOUR YEAR OF RECOVERY. THIS IS YOUR YEAR OF RESTORATION.”
Remember first and foremost PURSUE GOD!!! RELENTLESSLY!!!! But know this, God is saying, “This is your year of recovery and restoration. I am with you. You will overtake and recover.”
Do as David did, run at the giant with your mouth open declaring victory, declaring what God says. Don't run at your giant with your mouth shut. Speak to that mountain.

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!!!!!
