Defend Your Lentil Field

“Next to him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about a great victory.” 2 Samuel 23:11-12

 

The other day I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine and she brought up this story of Shammah. As she shared with me her revelation of this, I was completely blown away. This story has not left my spirit since our conversation and has unfolded in my heart to share what the Lord has given me to share.

The verse above is found under the title “David’s Mighty Men” in my Bible. There were a lot of men that battled and died with David, but two verses (four sentences) sums up one of the many mighty men that battled with David; Shammah.

Shammah saw value in this lentil field and stood to keep possession of it. He refused to allow the enemy to take it and was willing to lay his life down for it. The Lord gave him victory over the enemy and ownership of the field along with its harvest.

Some of us need to see the value in the lentil field the Lord has placed us in and stand our ground to defend it. It has immense value; fight for it. You will see the protection, provision and favor of God when you see the value and take ownership of it. This can be where you live, your marriage, your family, your finances, your healing; anything. Stand your ground and watch the victory come!

Power of One: Pioneering in Families

“See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being, I announce them to you.” Isaiah 42:9

 “But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to restore them…” Isaiah 42:22

 

Recently while listening to a broadcast, the Lord gave me a vision:

I was in the midst of a large cornfield. There were a few stalks that were green, and some were ready for harvest. But, most were all withered and dead on the ground and even more had been cut down and left for rot. Yet, when I looked at the soil, it was rich and looked ready to be planted in.

 As this vision ended, I felt strongly to prophesy to those in family situations that appear sad, helpless, dead, dying and dysfunctional.

I’m here to tell you the Lord is calling YOU to pioneer and plow new ground, new standards and new traditions for your family. It doesn’t matter where in the generational lines you are in, keep planting seeds of faith with endurance into that fertile soil and watch it spring up with new life!

The old stalks still standing are the wisdom and goodness to be gleaned from the past. There is going to be new fullness of life coming to the most impossible situations! You’ve been given the Power of One to pioneer Restoration for your family!

“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 wastelands.” Isaiah 43:19

 The Lord has not called you to pioneer without preparing you or giving you the sound He wants you to release.

In the natural sound waves are measured based on volume, tone and movement. Sounds in the natural actually move things! Imagine what your sound does in the Spirit?! Your unique sound shifts atmospheres! When you release your sound in the spirit, it’s not the volume that is measured; it’s the movement the Lord has empowered your sound with. A quiet whisper will crumble mountains! No one’s sound is like yours, so move forward releasing it and see all things shift and move for you!

Unprecedented Season

Definition: never done or known before

Synonyms: unparalleled, extraordinary, first-time, unique, exceptional, unmatched

 

Today, here in the Midwest, USA, we had some unusually warm temperatures almost reaching 70 degrees Fahrenheit! That is crazy warm for this time of year!!

As I was out running errands I was thinking to myself about how crazy and seemingly out of place this weather is when all of a sudden the Lord said,

Unprecedented weather to begin this unprecedented season! I am opening the doors over you, you will be moving forward with unprecedented favor, speed and provisions! Keep speaking the words I have spoken to you previously. Keep trusting that what I have spoken WILL BE!”

 As I was praying for wisdom and discernment, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. And, in that moment I was reminded of the word He gave me last week about being in the “11:59 Minute”. Just as this reminder came, a car pulled in front of me with the plate “MIDNYT”. MIDNIGHT!!!!! I immediately heard the Lord say,

I am moving you into the Midnight Hour! It is a NEW day unfolding!”

As I pulled into town, another car pulled in front of me with the plate “NEW LVL 7”. C’MON NOW!!!

Get ready for the Unprecedented manifestations of His Promises over your life to unfold!!! 

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

 

I also felt to prophesy over those standing at the banks of their Red Sea.

“I know the fear and pressures have been intense and overwhelming, but I’m about to part the waters in front of you! All will see that I AM God! I AM Your Provider, I AM your Healer, I AM your Way-Maker and I AM ALL you will ever need!! Keep trusting!”
