Yesterday and today as I sat with the Lord I have felt Him highlighting again that this is the season of RADICAL CHANGE!!! Overnight Opportune Opportunities for the body of Christ, even some OPPOSITE opportunities to what is expected, but will lead you to something better.
So as I am sitting with the Lord and meditating on this, He says to me “I am giving you CHANGE for your CHAINS”.
Instantly, I see many of God’s people in chains. They are chains of disillusionment (definition of disillusionment can be “disappointed, downcast, discouraged, world-weary, negative, confused, let down, cast down, void of direction. – definition from google.com)
I can hear the people of God crying out for freedom from these chains, but every time I hear them crying out for freedom from CHAINS, I hear the word “CHANGE”. The sense surrounds me that the CHANGE is going to OVERRIDE the CHAINS.
I see in the place of the people of God crying out there is a level of encounter with Him and His heart, His glorious beautiful awakening love that is opened up before them. I see this glorious light, His Glory exploding everywhere around them, His Glory SO FULL of His power and His love and He breaks the chains.
I watch Jesus pick up all the broken chains and He takes them into Himself. They are swallowed up by His Glory and His love. I am in awe of the One who paid the price for us to be FREE! He took it ALL upon Himself! What love is this! Glory to Jesus!
The people of God begin to stand up and stretch and feel the freedom that has come upon them, the freedom that has always been theirs in Christ. Joy, life and strength begins to FLOOD BACK into the hearts and souls of God’s people.
Jesus then hands them a gold coin and on one side of the coin it says Isaiah 61:7
“Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting JOY will be yours.”
On the other side of the gold coin it said:
“Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners of hope! I promise this very day that I will repay TWO blessings for each of your trouble.”
Jesus smiled at His people and again He spoke “For your CHAINS, I am giving you CHANGE”.. DOUBLE PORTION PAYBACK AND CHANGE is UPON YOU!!!! My abundant, double portion provision is being given to you in this exchange and turnaround. Where you have felt like you were going to receive the leftovers.. I am breaking that lie. My love is ministering to your heart and soul today. HEAR My truth.. I am GIVING YOU MY BEST as you wait upon and follow Me.”
