By Lana Vawser

The Lord highlighted Psalm 116 to me today for those who have been going through an incredibly difficult pressing, opposition, hardship and battle, the Lord whispered to me that His deliverance will bring you into a new place suddenly, where you can say to yourself and others what David said in verse 7:

“Now I can say to myself and to all; RELAX and REST, be CONFIDENT and SERENE, for the Lord rewards FULLY those who simply trust in Him”

Many of you what you have been walking through has required a new level of surrendering and trusting in Him and His way and that He is FOR YOU and He is leading you to PLEASANT places. Much of the shaking taking place is exposing the areas of fear, unbelief, doubt and lack of trust in the hearts of His people. In that place, He is healing hearts and deepening dependency upon Him.

I felt the Lord wanted me to prophesy over you today that the SCENE IS SHIFTING! Where you could echo the cries of verses 3-4:

“Death once stared me in the face, and I was so close to slipping into its dark shadows. I was terrified and overcome with sorrow, I cried out to the Lord “GOD, COME and SAVE ME!”

Many of you, with the battles you have walked, have really stared death in the face, the feeling so strong that you may not make it, this may take you out and amongst it all, you have still CRIED OUT and friends, HE HAS HEARD YOU!

The Lord has heard your cries and He is about to SAVE YOU! His SWIFT DELIVERANCE is about to FALL UPON YOU!!!!!

"The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them." (Psalm 34:7)

"Through you I’m saved—rescued from every trouble. I’ve seen with my eyes the defeat of my enemies. I’ve triumphed over them all!" (Psalm 54:7)

There will be a burning conviction and testimony within you that shouts “For I was broken and brought low, but HE answered me and came to My rescue” (verse 6)

I prophesy over you today, that God is rescuing your soul from death’s fear and will dry your eyes of MANY TEARS. He will keep your feet firmly on His path and strengthen you so that you may please Him and live your life before Him in His life-giving light and even when it seems you are surrounded by many liars and your own fears and where you are hurting in your suffering and trauma, you WILL stay faithful to God and speak words of faith. (verses 8-11) The enemy has been trying hard to assassinate and abort the plans that God has for you, but the deliverance of God is falling upon you swiftly that will chase the enemy from where he has you surrounded and the WAY God is going to deliver you is going to HEAL YOU, STRENGTHEN YOU and CHANGE YOU FOREVER! His KINDNESS and LOVE that will be DISPLAYED in His DELIVERANCE and RESCUE of you is going to leave you FOREVER CHANGED.

“He was so kind, so gracious to me. Because of His passion toward me, He made everything right and He RESTORED me.” (verse 5)

The magnitude of the battle, the heaviness of the darkness, the grief and sorrow of the pathway you have been walking will be as nothing compared to the LIGHT, BREAKTHROUGH, JOY and His GLORY that you are about to step into.

RELAX, RELAX AND REST, BE CONFIDENT AND SERENE

“Now I can say to myself and to all; RELAX and REST, be CONFIDENT and SERENE, for the Lord rewards FULLY those who simply trust in Him” (verse 7)

The Lord is strengthening you to be unmovable in Him and the deliverance of God and the SCENE SHIFT that is upon you is going to leave you in a place where your heart and soul will be able to RELAX, REST and be CONFIDENT and SERENE because of your TRUST in Him. His DELIVERANCE DEMONSTRATION is going to break all holds of ‘mistrust’ and usher you into the most glorious depth of intimacy and new level of yieldedness and trust of beautiful Jesus that you have never experienced.

I felt the Lord highlight the word SERENE.

So I looked it up:

SERENE: calm, peaceful, and untroubled, tranquil

Synonymns: “calm, composed, collected, cool, relaxed, even-tempered, unflappable, soothing, undisturbed, unworried.

Such a deep healing, such radical SCENE SHIFT and DELIVERANCE is UPON YOU and about to manifest that you will experience the PEACE that surpasses all understanding in a whole new way. In the battle, in the turbulence, the Lord has been building stability and maturity, and teaching His people discernment to know the difference between His voice and the voice of the enemy, but MANY have lost their peace and have been fighting hard to regain their peace.

The Lord spoke to me that you shall now know in His deliverance the peace that surpasses all understanding SO deeply that in this next season to come when you face trials and tribulations of many kinds, you will NOT be shaken, you will NOT see your emotions take over like crazy and lead you astray, but you will be LED FORTH WITH JOY and PEACE!!!

Your PRAYER LIFE is about to be SET ON FIRE in such a glorious way as the CHAINS of this battle, this death battle that has almost killed you and taken you out, fall away. A new ZEAL, a new FIRE, a new PASSION, a new level of FAITH and CONFIDENCE in Him and His Word is going to EXPLODE within you. Your position will be shifted from defense to offense.

“Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. be SATURATED IN PRAYER throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude, tell Him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 4:7 – The Passion Transation)

God is LEADING His people OUT of captivity, He is LEADING His people into a place of JOY and PEACE (Isaiah 55) into the new season, the new era, and He is also MARKING His people in MATURITY to be LED FORTH with PEACE and JOY in EVERY SEASON because of their deep trust in Him.

A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF PASSIONATE WORSHIP WILL BURST FORTH FROM WITHIN YOU AND YOUR YES WILL BE RENEWED AND CONCRETED READY FOR THE GREATEST PROMOTION OF YOUR LIFE

Many of you that have walked through this intense darkness, opposition and battle, your YES was challenged, your YES was shaken, but throughout the onslaught, you have FOUGHT to continue to keep your YES even when you have wanted to run, you keep coming back to your YES, but your YES feels shaky.

In this swift deliverance of the Lord a whole new level of worship and praise is going to burst forth from within you. Your YES through the battle has been a sacrifice of praise and now in the SHIFT of the SCENE you will praise and worship like never before.

“Now I’ll worship you passionately and bring to you my sacrifice of praise, drenched with thanksgiving! I’ll keep my promise to you, God!!” (verse 18)

I felt the Lord say that as many of you have fought what feels like the greatest battle of your life, the Lord is saying now in His swift deliverance and SCENE SHIFT, the greatest PROMOTION of your life is upon you. You are about to see the REWARD of the Lord for your TRUST in Him through the fire that was sent by the enemy to kill you.

You shall go forth strong, secure with an unmovable, unshakeable stable trust in Him as your eyes have seen the sudden deliverance, power and Glory of God manifest in your midst and you have been left forever changed.

The battle that has tried to kill you, the Lord has used to strengthen you. You shall now move forward with no storm WITHIN YOU but the awakened power to quiet the storms that SURROUND you and others. With a loud, strong, passionate, faith-filled voice, you will decree to others walking intense battles and on the cusp of breakthrough:

“RELAX and REST, be CONFIDENT and SERENE, for the Lord rewards FULLY those who simply trust in Him” (v7) and as you have trusted in Him, great now shall be your reward!

  1. I love you Lana for your deep surrender to the Lord. This is EXACTLY what I’ve been going through. May your ministry increase exponentially! It’s encouraging to know I was not alone in the struggle. Obedience has definitely been greater than any sacrifice “we” have made. I love you Woman of God.

  2. After tonight, no more, in Jesus name. I break the back of the spirit of panic attacks in Jesus mighty and majestic name. Amen!

  3. I have been brought 2 tears by ur recent words: u have been so spot on 2 my life. U have given me hope 2 hold on thru 1 last battle…. Bless u

  4. Lana, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou ? this is, again, the word in season, that captures completely what the Spirit has been working on and speaking to me! Bless you, I’m Jesus beautiful name!!

  5. When I read this word today I thought it was a personal word for me because my name is SERENE and in a way it is. I was reminded of a new meaning for my name UNTROUBLED. Even when trouble arises I seem not to be as phased as I should be. Thank you, As I read the word today it filled me with great joy and peace and of course SERENE. Thank you for confirmation and answered prayers through this word. I am ready for my prayer life to be set on fire. Thank you so much

  6. Hi Lana, It is difficult for me to bring forward words that adequately express the impact your obedience and stewardship of your prophetic calling has had upon me. I reside in Arizona , USA and my bride of 30 years went Home to be with our Lord Jesus two years ago this July 31. She is the love of my life and my soul mate and I miss her beyond words. I have walked this valley where the emptiness and pain has been and continues to be so very suffocating, and yet, I do hold fast and profess Abba’s promises over me as-well-as my children. I battle with despair each and every day but wield the Sword of the Spirit …Hope… each day. This “Elijah’s cave” of suffering has been one of tremendous challenge for me as Father has caused me to look deeply into self …. to really be real into seeing myself as Abba sees me. To break me so that He could make me into the man He intended me to be. In my emotional weakness, He has laid bare to me those emotional things; e.g. control , striving etc, that I simply defaulted to as “who I am”, with no actual consciousness of that default. In this “cave” of emotional re-set, and in my lack of emotional strength, Holy Spirit has given me revelation through my weakness and lack of emotional strength into areas where I expended a great deal of emotional energy into supporting what I call the false self … the emotional collection of World experiences … the good , the bad and the ugly. I am so emotionally weary and “despair even of life” often, and many times cry out that in the name of Jesus that Father “just take me home.” Your prophetic Word through the Holy Spirit today hit me hard …. It is exactly where I am ….. it gave me hope and strength Lana …. thank you Sis!! …. You are a tremendous blessing and I speak supernatural Shalom, favor and love over and upon you and your family ….

  7. Lana, I’m not some great intersessor or prophet, I’m just a poor, little, single 68 yr old woman whose daughter has asked her to leave our home. I’ve been terrible afraid of what will happen to me. Will I be homeless and just tossed into the street to fend for myself? Then today 7-16-17 I read your wonderful prophecy! It gives me hope once again and more trust in the Lord. I almost got scammed yesterday by someone on Craigs List. I want to take my posting of my need for a roommate off their site because of what happened and just trust the Lord that he will get me my own place without a roommate. I’ve been born-again for 37 yrs. and since 1994 I’ve kept myself only for the Lord. I have always told the Lord “I’m sorry I can’t seem to get out of this ‘spiritual wheelchair’ I’m in.” I still have no prayer language or gifts to use for Him. BUT THE LORD SAYS TO PUT OUR HOPE IN HIM BECAUSE HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT, right? Thanks again for hearing from the Lord so beautifully.

  8. Wait, I have to read and reread this, and go back to my journal wondering does Lana read my prayer journals? what’s happening here Lord, do you tell her my secrets? What’s happening? On Friday Morning before morning Mass I prayed using Psalm 116. I remember journaling my thoughts that “Lord has promised me PLEASANT places, my lot is indeed a beautiful one.” The words Pleasant places stayed with me all day. You are indeed God’s Lily Lana. I can’t stop smiling.

  9. Thank you so very much indeed. The above prophecy was just so accurate in every measure and . thrust. It was like the LORD read my mail out loud for all to hear. Thank you for your faithfulness in attending to the Lord, and in writing it down as a faithful witness. You have been a true blessig to me, and I thank the Lord with all my heart and soul. Robin.

  10. Thank You Lana this is so comforting and uplifting to my soul and mind. I was just talking to the Lord and asking ” :Lord when is this vicious , horrific attacks of the enemy on my life, body and soul going to stop?”
    It has been 2 horrific years of the enemy trying to kill me . But, my faith and trust in the Lord God and His Word spoken out in my life , family, home, calling , is what has kept me alive.
    I am so uplifted now and filled with the joy of our Lord for the mouth of the Lord has spoken through His Prophet ( You) and I will magnify and praise the name of the Lord.
    We desperately need the deliverance, breakthrough, blessings and all He has for us as a SUDDENLY.
    Thank you Lord you have heard our cries and seen our suffering and tears.
    All Praise and thanks to our Redeemer and LORD of Lords.
    God bless you Lana.

  11. Thank you for this word. I am not one to reply or to talk about my situations but this word has spoken deeply to me. I will put off the dark thoughts of death in all it’s forms for yet a little while. As the song says “They say it only takes a little faith
    To move a mountain
    Well good thing
    A little faith is all I have, right now”
    It will be well with my soul.

    • Dear Paul, …because you wrote this : ” I will put off the dark thoughts of death in all it’s forms for yet a little while” , and because I am in the same situation, I am writing to let you know that I will pray for you, despite my situation. Be encouraged and trust in him yet a while. Hold on. “When my spirit faints within me, throwing all its weight on me…then YOU knew my path”. God be with you !

  12. Lana, as I sat here and read that word from the Lord, I started to cry because my last five years have been hell! And my cry was release and thank you , And joy all mixed up together! My husband died five years ago, right after that some of my family died, right after that two of my best friends died, they were both younger than me and one of the members of my family, was only 45, I lost my home after my husband died. His six children and grandchildren walked away from me after 25 years taking care of most of them. His three sisters and their families, And many other things in the past five years! I made some terrible choices, but my heart was always yes and amen to the Lord. I’ve been in three countries and moved eight times, I am 67 years old, and I am exhausted and depleted. My soul,praise God,is being restored! My brain is coming back together! And that word so spoke to my spirit! Everything I’ve cried out for He spoke to me through that word! Thank you thank you thank you!

  13. The Lord made you a prophet that seems custom-fitted just for me, Lana.

    A few months ago, I was amazed when one night I had a dream that was so creepy and upsetting that I immediately woke up and went to my desk top seeking answers and solace. As I opened up my email, there was a word from you that you had JUST POSTED a minute earlier so it completely coincided with my dream. The word was very short for you — only one brief paragraph stating, “Pay attention to your dreams and ask God for wisdom and interpretation. There is specifically an increase of “warning dreams” right now. Don’t fear! The Lord is uncovering the strategy of the enemy, so through your prayers and the power of the blood of Jesus, you can disarm the assignments and attacks of the enemy. You are taking ground!”

    Needless to say, that word was so comforting and gave me direction for what to do about the dream. It involved a very high-level U.S. politician and confirmed what I suspected about him. No one would believe me if I told them what it was about but as long as the Lord assures you He is speaking, it doesn’t matter what others think or say.

    This word today also fits perfectly. The anointing on my life to impact the political mountain in the U.S. so infuriated the enemy that he has tried to kill me numerous times over the last few years. Now it seems the Lord is giving me the strength to rest serenely in Him as I wait for His complete deliverance.

  14. Thank you Lana you have no idea what your words of encouragement have done for me today. Sharing your gift has blessed me and answered my prayer.

  15. As I read this prophecy , I began to feel the fire of God and I started crying. I know that God has been answering my prayers, this prophecy is word for word matching my prayers, I say Yes and Amen Lord!!! Thank you Lord, I am so grateful, my tears are now streaming down my face and getting the floor wet, this is my breakthrough!
    Thank you for your obedience Lana.
    Love and prayers,
    Sonja
