Good Morning My Loves,
I was seeking the Lord yesterday morning and lifting up those who’ve been going through unusual warfare, and the Holy Spirit spoke to me loud and clear, “The tide is turning their favor!”
The phrase “The tide is turning” means:
1. reversal in a situation,
2. new and opposite flow,
3. to assist in getting over or moving forward
4. to carry forward with new momentum
5. to surmount a difficulty, obstacle, etc..to survive.
Prophecy this word over yourself and those who need hope right now, “The tide is turning in “my” favor, the tide is turning in “YOUR” favor, the tide is turning in “our” favor!!!”
As I began speaking the word out loud, the Spirit of the Lord came upon me in strong waves. I found myself in deep intercession-travail. The Lord said, “Tell them they are My prisoners of hope! The devil is trying to rob them of hope. They must have hope to have faith, and they must have faith to receive this word. Many are fragile and they need to see themselves bound to hope. They have hope in this storm. They have hope for this turnaround. They have hope regardless of what is going wrong, because I am the God of hope, and I will not disappoint them.”
I knew the phrase “prisoners of hope” was in the Bible so I searched for and found it in Zechariah 9:12.
Zechariah 9:12 (AMP)
Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], You prisoners of hope;
Even today I am declaring that I will restore double your former prosperity to you..
God is saying, “Run into My presence. It’s your only stronghold of security and prosperity. Understand that you are bound to hope. You can’t get away from hope. It doesn’t matter what the devil is throwing at you, you have hope because you have Me. I’m giving you DOUBLE FOR YOUR TROUBLE! Believe it!"
BE STEADFAST IN HOPE IN SPITE OF THE TRIALS
Many of you have poured your heart and soul into God ordained relationships, ministry, and business ventures, only to have all hell break loose against you. During this past season you’ve wanted to quit many times, but you’ve kept your word and showed up and done the right thing even during persecution.
Jesus understands. He tells us that we are going to experience trials, distress, and frustration, but IN SPITE OF IT, we can be courageous, confident, undaunted, and filled with joy, because HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD (demonic realm).
Because we are IN Him, and He is IN us, we walk and live IN His victory!
John 16:33 (AMP)
33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]
The way we appropriate this word by faith is to:
-Press into the very presence of God through worship.
-Allow the truth and God’s presence to permeate our soul regardless of the pressure that bears upon us. Hold onto hope, and stay in faith. Starve fear, feed faith, and wait on God.
-KNOW that we are anchored with steadfast hope in whatever comes, because of the victory that Jesus Christ has already won for us!
Hebrews 6:19 (AMP)
19 This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells],
Never give up! God's on your side. He loves you, and He's helping you! You're going to make it!
Put your hope in God and declare by faith, “The tide is turning in my favor!”
I love you all! PV
