I received the following prophetic word by Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, 

I believe it is a timely word for us as we embark on a new year and as such am re-blogging it with her permission.

“The Lord showed me a huge ocean that was filled with waves. There were people swimming in this ocean but some were having a difficult time trying to align themselves properly to stay afloat. Several were struggling as the waves were tossing them back and forth, to and fro, and some were even being pulled under the water. But then there were others who knew how to maneuver themselves and swim over the waves as they glided with ease. They knew how to ride the tide, and allow the surge to pull them toward the shore, rather than out to sea. They understood the tactics to avoid the rip currents that were trying to pull them under. They were still when the wind came because they knew that the wind conditions affect the waves. They did not panic but they were those who were determined and focused.

The Lord says; Allow Me to train you how to rise above every situation that is hindering you from moving forward and anything that is trying to harm you. Do not allow yourself to become consumed with fear or confusion. Don’t allow yourself to be tossed to and fro with every wave that comes against you. There will always be ebbs and flows in your life and I want to teach you how to soar above these circumstances and walk on the water of adversity. I want to train you how to be more than a conqueror and overcome all obstacles in your way that would prevent you from reaching your spiritual potential. I will teach you how to stay afloat and to keep you from being pulled under by torrents of difficulties. Trust Me to keep you from drowning in despair when the current rises against you. I will show you how to rise above the rip tides that are trying to pull you down.

As you learn to trust Me, you will no longer allow the situations in your life to engulf your mind in confusion, and you will be able to make wise decisions. I will guide you through the hardship and crisis, and lead you out of every predicament that challenges you. You will no longer waver between two opinions. As you spend time with Me, I will bring your prayers to life. I will restore joy to your heart and peace to your mind. You will no longer live a life of despair. Allow Me to show you how to navigate through anything that comes against you. I will show you how to walk through troublesome times, and deal with difficult people. You will recognize and have victory over the sharks that are trying to devour you. Do not limit Me and do not look at the winds and the waves of adversity, but put your focus on Me to bring you out when trying times arise, says the Lord.”

Isaiah 54:11-12

“O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones.” 

Matthew 8:24 – 27

“Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”   

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
