Dear Stairway family,
Last month was quite a month for us. Ministry was just awesome! We can’t wait for what God has for us this month! He is up to amazing things for you too!
You may remember the word I gave at the beginning of this year about the re’s. Well I woke up the 1st of July and the Lord started speaking to me about it again and said, “Remember at the first of the year when I said the re’s have it! Go read Psalm 23 and apply it there. Here’s Psalm 23 in the Passion Translation. The part in parenthesis is my word over you.
The Lord is my Best Friend and my Shepherd. I always have more than enough.
(I declare over you and your finances that you will have more then enough! Your best friend loves you and will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory & He has plenty of riches in glory! You will not lack for He will provide you!)
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
(I declare that you will rest in the Father’s luxurious love. Nothing can touch you there or steal your peace. You are sheltered under His canopy of overshadowing grace. And your heart will be quietly kept free from fear or worry there. And you will find rest where others would give up and give in.)
RESTORED & REVIVED
That’s where he restores and revives my life.He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure, and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so that I can bring honor to his name.
(In peaceful reassurance of His love, all things that concern you are being restored and revived! He is breathing new life and strength into you as He sets your feet on a path that brings you and Him mutual pleasure bringing greater glory and honor to Him!)
RELAX (He’s got this)
Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.
(No matter the difficulty you’re facing today He will carry you through. For He never abandons His lovers, but is overshadowing you with His love that conquers all!)
Your authority is my strength and my peace.The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
(The creator God, the ruler of the universe is your mighty defender. Therefore you will not operate in a spirit of fear. For He is forever near and always available as your comforter and friend. He’s strengthening right you now for the battles that are yet ahead and has provided the strength to carry you through.)
You become my delicious feast even when my enemies dare to fight. You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit; you give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows.
(His love is so delightfully delicious! There is nothing on this earth that compares. And no enemy in heaven or earth can take you down when you’re taken up with Him! For you are triumphant through the power of His love. And as His love fills your being it is producing an unmistakeable fragrance of heaven carrying the power of breakthrough to everyone who comes near and under its influence.)
So why would I fear the future? For I’m being pursued only by your goodness and unfailing love.Then afterwards-when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!
(You will no longer operate in fear. He has replaced it by His goodness, His mercy and His forever available presence. He is always with us and for us so why would we fear? On earth and when this life is past, His presence is present and available now and forever. It doesn’t get any better than this!)
And finally here is one last word from another dream I had.
Restructured and Refurbished
I dreamed that we were in a big beautiful house (our lives, ministries & the church) It had been restructured and refurbished for the owner (Our Father God, our creator).
And I heard Him say, “I have prepared this house for greatness and this is what it will look like once I’m finished. So I’m undertaking a huge restructuring program in your life. Much of what I do will appear to you like a big mystery, but you must trust me for I know everything about you & I know what I’m doing. For you will love your new look when I’m finished. What you once clung too may not be there when you turn around tomorrow, for I’m moving the furniture in your life around. Things that you used to rely on, things that used to give you comfort & support, (but are no longer needed and now only get in the way and hinder you) I’m about to move out. For things have changed for you and you aren’t the same person that you used to be. You have the same savior and the same Holy Spirit, but you have matured and you no longer need the walls. For you have moved on to new and higher ground in the Spirit. Like new wine needs a new wineskin you need restructuring. I will finish all that I have begun. So trust Me for the result will be beautiful in the end bringing you joy and praise and glory to Me!”
*SOS 8:8-10 (The Bridegroom-King) “We will build a tower of redemption to protect her. Since she is vulnerable, we will enclose her with a wall of cedar boards.”
(The Shulamite Bride) “But now I have grown and become a bride, and my love for him has made me a tower of passion and contentment for my beloved.”
