ALL WOUND UP

ALL WOUND UP

ARE YOU ALL WOUND UP?

ARE YOU ALL WOUND UP?

 

I received the following prophetic word by Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, http://www.awordinseason.info.

I believe it is a timely word, particularly following my post of September 29th that asked the pertinent question, “In who or what will you trust?”and as such, I am re-blogging it with her permission.

Be encouraged,

ALL WOUND UP

By Elaine Tavolacci

The Holy Spirit brought me back to a prophetic word that I shared some time ago. He showed me a picture of a multitude of people with wind up keys on their backs walking around like wind up dolls. Each person was walking in a different direction. Some people were walking to and fro wandering aimlessly without hope and some were being swayed in the wrong direction. Some were lagging behind while others appeared to be in a trance of fear. There were some walking in a circular motion not realizing that they weren’t going anywhere, just like a hamster running around on a wheel. Many were distraught as they were going through fiery trials.

But then I saw those who were marching with determination knowing exactly what their destination was as they were trusting Jesus. They marched on with courage and confidence. They had fire in their eyes, and the Word of God as a sword in their mouths. They stood upright, they were bold and radical in their faith, and they were steadfast in what they believed. They seemed to have a protective shield around them as every fiery dart that came against them was extinguished. They were not swayed by adverse circumstances or evil reports, but they stood on the word of God.

I asked The Lord what this meant and this is what He showed me. Every person in the universe is walking around wound up in different situations. Some people are wound up in worries, some are wound up in confusion, some are caught up in the love of money and many are wound up in fear. But then there is the remnant who are stirred up in faith, stirred up in joy, and they continue to stir themselves up spiritually by praying in the Spirit.

The Lord says, allow Me to unwind you from the pressures that so easily beset you. Do not fear this dilemma that seems to be too large for you to handle in the natural, and allow Me to release you from the tormenting anxiety and confusion in your mind. Trust in Me to provide all your needs in every area. Allow Me to remove the burdens from your heart as you are entangled in complicated situations. Those of you who are fatigued from the cares and the weights of the world, come and rest in Me and I will restore your energy and revive you physically. Take your eyes off the circumstances around you and allow Me to direct your path. Trust in Me when all else fails. Don’t allow worry or fear to overtake you. I will release you from this distress as you position yourself and come into the secret place of My presence. Be bold and be strong, as you follow My leading. Allow Me to stir up and resurrect those dreams that have faded away through discouragement.

As you put your trust in Me, you will gain the tenacity to become steadfast once again and pursue the plans that you have been contending for. You will then have the endurance to run the race with determination and strength. Keep your focus on My Word rather than the way that your situations appear in the natural. Everything in the natural is subject to change. I am the God of restoration and nothing is impossible with Me. As you stay steadfast in these trying times, you will come forth as gold. I Am your deliverer, I Am the God of your destiny and I Am with you in the fire of affliction. Although it may look like the waves of adversity are pulling you in a vortex, fear not. Rejoice and know that this too will come to pass and know that I will bring you in to My plans and purposes for your life. As you trust Me, that very thing that is coming against you will be your greatest testimony. Stir yourself up once again, and I will bring you out stronger as you endure and put your faith in Me says the Lord.

 

1 Samuel 30:6
Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

Isaiah 41:10
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

1 Peter 4:12 -13
Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

Jude 1:20 -21
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life

SOMETIMES…………OTHER TIMES

Sometimes………Other Times

“TRUST GOD”

Sometimes our prayers are like dynamite, explosively changing our situations with results easily seen.

Other times they are like a constant drip of water on a rock, steadily eroding the dynamics of our situation with changes hidden from the naked eye.

Sometimes healing manifests in our bodies instantly, miraculously, effortlessly.

Other times it is a painstaking process entailing physical suffering and requiring continuous faith until manifested promise.

Sometimes God gives us the very thing that we want.

Other times like a loving parent, He withholds it for our own good.

Sometimes we pray that a person lives through a life-threatening situation and they survive.

Other times we pray fervently, believing for them to live and they die.

Sometimes provision comes for financial needs way in advance.

Other times it comes on the 59th minute of the 11th hour.

Sometimes God delivers us from fiery trials.

Other times we have to walk through the fire of affliction from beginning to end.

BUT REST ASSURED THAT AT ALL TIMES GOD HAS OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART SO WE CAN TRUST HIM.

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

(Romans 8:28 – NLT)

HOPE & HELP FOR LIFE’S DIFFICULT SEASONS

HOPE & HELP FOR LIFE’S DIFFICULT SEASONS

“SEASONS”

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven”

(Ecclesiastes 3:1 – KJV)

According to Strong’s Concordance, the Hebrew meaning of the word “season” in this verse is “an appointed occasion”.

This means that the verse can read, “To everything there is an appointed occasion, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.”

There are many different seasons that we may encounter in a lifetime.

  • Seasons of settling and seasons of transition.
  • Seasons of open doors and seasons of closed doors.
  • Seasons of giving and seasons of receiving.
  • Seasons of rest and seasons of hard work.
  • Seasons of war and seasons of peace.
  • Seasons of delay and seasons of acceleration.
  • Seasons of separation and seasons of connecting.
  • Seasons of being exposed and seasons of being hidden.
  • Seasons of sowing and seasons of reaping.
  • Seasons of barrenness and seasons of fruitfulness.
  • Seasons of pressing on and seasons of holding back
  • Seasons of ease and seasons of effort.
  • Seasons of birth and seasons of death

Sometimes in His divine wisdom, God ordains seasons for our lives that we find, uncomfortable, unfavorable, inconvenient, painful, or experience in some other negative way.

When you find your self in such a season, how do you respond?

Do you:

a)    Murmur, grumble, complain, get angry and bitter with God, argue with Him, try to escape into another season, or try to re-define your season according to your own desires?

or

b)   Humbly and graciously accept your season as being from the sovereign hand of your all-knowing, all-wise, all-powerful and loving Father and ask Him to grant you all that you need to pass through the season in a way that is pleasing to Him and that accomplishes all that He desires to do in and through you at the given point in time?

or

 c)    Begin at a) and as time proceeds, melt into b).

Sometimes in life we may find ourselves tossed into nerve-wracking, painful, faith-battling, wearisome seasons that seem impossible to bear.

When this happens, one way that we can avoid a lot of unnecessary stress and possible discipline from our Father is to yield to the season He allows in our lives, knowing that He loves us, He has a plan, and is working things out for good even if we can not perceive it.

Instead of responding with anger, rebellion or in some other non-productive, or negative way, when we encounter difficult seasons, it is best to respond with humility and ask God to help us to accept these seasons and grant us the needed wisdom, grace and fortitude to work through them and come out better and not bitter on the other side.

If you find yourself in a difficult season today, remember that God will never put more on you than you can bear and the that the season will not last forever.

Be blessed and encouraged by this song by Yolanda Adams, “This Too Shall Pass”.

Shalom!
