I don’t know about you, but 2016 began with a bang for me! The word I shared at the beginning of January about HOPE is being fulfilled moment-by-moment, and the more recent word about Intimate War is manifesting daily. This is the year of the turnaround, Beloved! This is the year God will reveal Himself as the Great Redeemer and Restorer. He is the Repairer of the Breach! << As I typed that last sentence, the Lord immediately brought Isaiah 58:12 to mind. I want to share it in a few different versions, highlighting words that speak to this month and this season:

“Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell.” (NAS)

“Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes.” (NLT)

“Your perpetual ruins will be rebuilt; you will reestablish the ancient foundations. You will be called, ‘The one who repairs broken walls, the one who makes the streets inhabitable again.'” (NET)

LEAP, and the net will appear.

 

For years, the Lord has said to me, “LEAP, and the net will appear.” I have abided by that directive more times than I can count, and He has never failed me. His net always appears. It gets a little easier each time I leap by faith, but the leaps also get bigger and longer with every new season. It is impossible to become stagnant or complacent when you learn a lifestyle of leaping.

Some of you are standing on the edge of destiny. You can see your fate in front of you, yet there is a crevasse (a gap, a breach, a fissure) between you and your dreams. Everything inside of you knows you need to reach the other side of that “opening” in order to continue running your race, but fear makes your feet feel like concrete blocks. You can see everything your heart desires, but you are terrified to go for it. You hold back, you fret, you worry, you doubt, and you wonder. Beloved, have you forgotten WHO YOU ARE?!? Do you not remember His word and His plan for your life? Have you been so shaken and tested that your faith no longer compels you?

Without faith, it is impossible to please God. – Hebrews 11:6

When you take a giant step of faith, your Father in heaven DELIGHTS in you. When you leap, His safety and assurance carry you forward. Leaping is essentially saying, “I trust You, Lord.” And without trust, there is no faith.

 

2016 is a LEAP Year

 

Beloved, you must leap. Now is the time. Fear can only control us if we give it access. 2016 is a LEAP YEAR. February gives you an extra day to leap into what lies ahead and begin to MARCH forward with confidence in the plans and promises of God. What will you DO to cross over into the NEW this month? March will hold something bright, bold and beautiful for those who are unafraid to take the leap in February.

Only believe, Beloved.

Only believe.

planets

 

For the first time in ten years, five planets are in alignment in the early pre-dawn sky. This celestial symphony began on January 20th and will continue through February 20th. I cannot express to you the prophetic implications in this starry display of divine timing. I have said this in many of my writings, but it bears repeating … The heavens reveal the glory of God and release messages that manifest on earth.

Allow me to unpack this a bit. On January 20th, God began to align some things in your life. Pay attention to the connections and appointments that are happening in and around you right now. These strategic alignments will usher you forward in the plans of God. Continue to expect things to “line up” through February 20th as the Lord prepares you for a LEAP into March. Remember … March is not a month, it’s an order! Get ready, get ready, get ready. A new mission and assignment await you in the marvelous month of MARCHING.

There will be FIVE specific and strategic alignments that take place in your life before February 20th. Look for them. Expect them. Believe in them. Trust God’s miraculous and supernatural ways. Communicate with Him about His purpose as you LEAP into ALIGNMENT, Beloved. It’s good!!! It is all very very good!

 

Nothing is wasted.

 

It has been TEN YEARS since the planets were aligned in this way. TEN. YEARS.

The Lord has been showing me that the past ten years have been VERY difficult for many people. I see trial after trial and test after test. I see tears and heartache. I see challenges and valleys. There are some victories in there that kept you hanging on by the skin of your teeth, but there were also times you wanted to give up completely. I see the battle over your destiny, Beloved. I see the raging attacks against your future. And I see you are still here. You are still in love with Jesus. You are still fighting the good fight. And you are STILL waiting for His promises to come to pass.

I have some GOOD NEWS … This. Is. Your. Year.

Truly.

This Jubilee Year will usher in a refreshing wind and wave of God like never before. Everything you have been through in the past ten years has prepared and equipped you for a time of ELEVATION and REVELATION in Him. You will be perfectly ALIGNED to LEAP into your dreams. You will move forward with more maturity, healing, and wholeness as a result of the fire that has refined you over the past decade. You have been made ready FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS, and now the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is knighting you, promoting you, and advancing you to a new rank for HIS glory. Oh, Beloved! This year will produce SO much fruit! This year you will reap in JOY what you have sown in tears. This year you will MOVE with Him in supernatural power and love. THIS YEAR, Beloved. THIS. YEAR.

Nothing is wasted in the kingdom of God. You have been in Boot Camp. You have been trained and tried for the battlefield. Now you will be launched into a place of passion, purpose, and promise that you only DREAMED was possible. Fill your heart with faith and expectation, Faithful Warrior. The best is yet to come.

 

Cheers to February … the month of PASSION

 

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:19

Jesus declared, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ – Matthew 22:37

Give your ALL to the One who gave His all and watch the mystery of destiny unfold before your very heart and eyes. Stay in the RUSHING RIVER of His glory and presence. Go with HIS flow. Follow His MOMENTUM. Now is the time, Beloved. I believe that with all of my heart. The time is now. I bless you with the FAITH and FOCUS to LEAP into ALIGNMENT in February, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

 

A few other unctions, as usual:

>> Super Bowl 50 will reveal something significant regarding this month, this season, and this Jubilee Year. The game is on 2/7, and I continue to hear Song of Solomon 2:7. Panthers and Broncos … Fast and Rough … Panthers can run up to 35 mph, and Broncos are known for their bucking. Sports fans, this new assignment before you will be FAST and ROUGH, but it will be SO MUCH FUN! Hold on tight and enjoy the ride!!!

>> 2/20 … Alignments will be completed, and assignments will be revealed. Prepare to put one foot in front of the other on 2/21.

>> 2/22 … One of my favorite days every year. By faith, I declare open heavens over this day … partnership revealed … strength in numbers … divine pairing for kingdom purposes in Jesus’ Name.

>> 2/27 … Expect a word from the Lord on 2/27 that will propel you forward into March with grace, clarity, assurance, and ease.

Bless the Lord, oh my soul!

LEAP!!!
