The following is a Word of Comfort for those who may feel as though they are turning a corner and have had limited sight over their future. This is not unusual—God is about to do something new! If you have become weary in the waiting—hold on. God is moving whether we realize it or not!
I was listening to the Piano Guys, a song called “Begin Again”. This was quickened to me because I had just watched a video recently by a Facebook friend of mine; she wrote a beautiful tune on the piano for this past New Year’s called “New Beginnings”. The Lord really spoke to me through it, for a “new beginning”, “fresh start”, and “fresh page” has certainly been a word in season!
As I got up to grab a bite to eat, I suddenly heard intercessions in the heavenlies with a melody that was similar to the notes of “Begin Again”. Swept up by the song and the words I heard in the spirit, I began singing along to it:
I will not be moved
I will not be overcome
Create in me a clean, clean heart
In the midst of singing these words over and over in a variety of combinations, I heard the Lord say, “Heads over tails.” I got the impression that the time has come for a reversal of fortunes (Psalm 126:4). It saw this like a coin being flipped over from tails to heads. This felt like a coin flip at the beginning of a football game that is meant to determine who has control of the ball. I knew that the decision was being overturned. I sensed now the Lord has decreed that there are those who have been like Josephs and have lived for a long time as “the tail”; He will now make them the head. And as for their enemies who have been the head and have pursued them relentlessly, God has now ordained that they will be the tail.
Deuteronomy 28:13 (NKJV) “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
Then I heard a melodious proclamation from the heavenlies pressing through my spirit. I began speaking/singing it out to the continuing tune I heard:
The river is flowing
The tables are turning
Peace like a river is coming
It’s flowing, it’s flowing
He’s pouring it out, He’s pouring it out, He’s pouring it out
He’s reviving us all over again
And then I saw the river of life surging through the room I was in! It reminded me exactly of a beautiful prophetic piece called River of Life by my friend, Meghan Williams, at Dyed4You Art. The river swept through so clean, so nourishing, and so vibrant!
Then the Word of the LORD came to me, a word for the Josephs who have been in the pit, in the prison confined, and awaiting release into the “new” and into “liberty”:
The tables are turning, My dear, for it is high time you arrived in style. I am overturning things. I am overthrowing powers in the heavenlies. I am unseating them, says the LORD. I am overturning judgments and assignments sent against you concerning your future. These things were meant to hinder you but believe Me, I am working those things out for your good.
I am establishing you and I will make your name great. This season is a “destiny turn”. Watch as a chain of events unfold. I am putting you into your place, into your position. Iron doors and prison bars were never meant to hold you, for I hold you. I am your Strength, your Shield, your Maker, and your Friend.
Though you might not know which direction I’m turning, I am moving. Be clear on that. What is ahead of you will surprise and astound you. Did I not say you had received grace in My sight? Now, I am showing you the way. I am making you comfortable again. I am comforting you. Your debt has been paid, and you are living again. You are free. You have been sealed to Me through the fire, through the grave, through the hurt, through the pain. No more, I swear—for this is My covenant of peace to you.
Remember, I love watching you win! I am for you. This is the season to rejoice and be glad. My footsteps, they are getting closer. Can you hear them?
(At this moment, my sister, Emily, came through the front door. The act of her unlocking, opening the door, and holding the keys in her hand was instantly quickened to me. In the spirit, I saw Yeshua with keys in His hand and I knew He was coming to unlock the prison door!)
What’s the password? Your future is looking bright again.
No matter what we endure in this season of waiting, let us hold fast to the key to any prison door—God’s promises to us in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
