Recently, the Lord spoke to me about divine interruptions. I heard the Lord saying “I am interrupting” and the sense surrounded me strongly that as God’s people right now we need to ‘discern’ the interruptions. For some interruptions that some are deeming as the ‘enemy’ is actually the Lord ‘interrupting’ to ‘change course’ and ‘change direction.’

I felt strongly that the Spirit of God was highlighting not only the place of discerning the interruptions but also embracing the divine interruptions, for in some of the most unexpected places and unexpected interruptions is a ‘new move of the Holy Spirit’.

This is the era of “I never thought I would be doing this…” – there are great divine assignments and adventures with the Lord that He is leading His people on, and into, that they never thought they would do, yet these are the places of tremendous favour, anointing and move of the Holy Spirit.

The Lord showed me that in many of these ‘divine interruptions’ He is bringing new giftings to the surface. There are giftings that He has placed within the lives of His people that they have not recognised that are coming to the surface through these divine interruptions.

In these moments of divine interruptions, the Lord is making room for the NEW. It is our responsibility to stop, ask the Holy Spirit “is this You, Lord?” and LISTEN and not be quick to “dismiss” the interruption as the “enemy” because it doesn’t fit what we thought we would do or the direction we thought we would go in.

In the PAUSING when these interruptions take place the Lord showed me there are weighty downloads of new assignments, vision and strategy the Lord was releasing for new directions and new moves of the Holy Spirit that have not been expected or anticipated by His people.

In discerning and embracing the interruptions that ARE the hand of the Lord, there are going to be mighty demonstrations of the Lord’s power, provision and positioning for this new era.

Can I encourage you today, to not be quick to ‘dismiss’ interruptions as all of them being the ‘enemy’. When the interruptions come, stop, pause and ask the Holy Spirit “Is this You, Lord?” for the Lord showed me, the interruptions that are His hand, the places where He is shifting and changing courses and directions of His people, these interruptions are actually BIRTHING ROOMS for a new move of His Spirit. Let us be people that discern and recognise the divine interruptions of God and embrace them wholeheartedly.

“Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it? (Isaiah 43:19 – NASB)
