This month there is a special grounding that comes from time spent in God’s Presence. New beginnings are nothing to be afraid of, and easy bravery is required to enter your Promised Land. There is grace for getting over disappointments right now, as God’s showing you that He’s limitless.
Rooted (in love, trust & the Presence)
God wants to show you in a beautiful way that His love for you is unending, and unchanging. He is opening hearts to encounter His love in life changing ways like you’ve never known. It is love redefined, and it is from this place of being wholly and completely loved, and being known and prized for who you really are, that you will be able to pour out love to those around you from a fresh, deep well of trust, compassion and solid identity. These love encounters come from time spent in His Presence. Time spent in the Presence will also yield greater levels of trust, deeper intimacy, and a profound heart awareness of who He created you to be.
The Presence of God In Exodus 33.15 Moses says to God, ‘If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.’ As a Presence-focused people, we are becoming like the One that we worship. Right now His Presence is easier to enter into and is available to more people. People that have never tangibly felt what it’s like to be in His Presence will be able to encounter it easily. By spending time in His Presence, we are also learning how to be present (with Him and with others). There will be decisions that you’re facing that can only be navigated with His Presence.
Grace for New Beginnings Sometimes new beginnings feel daunting, intimidating or wearisome, like starting over. Right now there is a special grace for the new. You will see new relationships, new partnerships, new ideas, new ventures, new locations, new dreams, and new desires. Whatever is new and fresh in your life right now view it with expectancy, anticipation and joy, for God is doing it, and he’s building momentum through you. You have a part to play in what is about to be birthed. You may hear yourself saying ‘I’ve never thought about this/wanted this/dreamed this could happen’ or ‘This came out of the blue. I never saw this coming, and it’s better than I could’ve hoped!’ There is also heightened angelic activity this month, as heaven is setting so many things up for you. Be on the lookout for supernatural occurrences, divine connections, and heavenly-orchestrated circumstances.
Easy Bravery There is a fearlessness that is required to enter into your Promised Land. It requires you letting go of control, old ideas & mindsets, past experience and a partnership with the way things look in the natural. When you are able to release the way you think things should go, you will be able to enter into a whole new realm of possibilities, fruitfulness and freedom. All that’s required is your bravery. It’s easy.
Limitless/Ephesians 3.20 In May some have felt like their dreams were dashed, like for all their effort & investing things did not turn out like they thought. Some have chosen to begin believing that this is the end of the road, even that it’s too risky to dream again. But, there is an invitation to dream even bigger, to press on, and to not lose hope in the face of discouragement & disappointment. If you accept this invitation even with looming discouragement and setbacks, there is a special grace to get over it and through it into a wide open spacious place with plenty of room to grow and imagine even more. There will be a temptation to look back at your disappointment, but if you camp out there, you’ll miss the invitation that God has for you. God wants to show you that He is limitless & He can handle your disappointment. Focus on His goodness, the truth of who He is, and hold loosely to the ‘how’ that He is accomplishing things. He is saying that His plans for you are even bigger, better and grander than you’d imagined. He is working all things together for your good (Romans 8.28). He longs to show you your very own Ephesians 3.20 reality where everything is immeasurably more than you could ask or think.
