A WORD FOR THOSE 55 YEARS OLD AND OVER…. I HEARD THE LORD DECREEING FLOURISHING, THRIVING, AWAKENING, VICTORY, STRENGTH AND NEW FIRE UPON YOU!!!!
By Lana Vawser
I recognise this is a long word, but I encourage you to take the time to read it. For quite a while now I have had a strong stirring in my spirit of a new and fresh move of the Spirit of God upon those 55 years old and over. The Lord showed me a strong stirring of the Spirit of God for GREATER AWAKENING AND PLACING for those 55 and over in this season.
As I have carried this word for a few months now, I felt the Lord prompt me to release it today.
When the Spirit of God began stirring in me for those 55 years old and over, I heard Him whisper to me:
“Many of My children 55 years old and over have felt forgotten, they have felt abandoned, they have felt left to the side, while others have an excitement in their spirit for what is to come and what I am doing but are awaiting My direction. There have been circumstances, people and the enemy that have spoken words and lies over My precious ones suggesting their “best days” are behind them… but I am decreeing the exact OPPOSITE. The best days for these precious ones in Me are upon them. Their best days in seeing Me move, Me awaken, Me accelerate and My hand bring a greater divine placing. Many of these precious ones are now moving into a season of such great awakening, awakening to their identity in greater ways, as many have not known their identity deeply, awakening to who I am, and awakening to their gifting’s and callings in greater ways. Many have dreams left behind, dreams left on the way side, many carrying regret, but I am decreeing, My beautiful children, you are moving into a season of seeing Me move more powerfully IN and THROUGH YOU than you have ever seen before and you are going to move into a deeper place of DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!! There is a great season of REFRESHING upon you that is being released in the WONDER of who I am and the work of My hand.”
“I AM DECREEING FLOURISHING, VICTORY, STRENGTH AND THRIVING UPON YOU!!! OH THE ENCOUNTERS WITH ME THAT SHALL BE HAD”
I have been feasting on a Scripture from Psalm 92:12-14 and I will be releasing prophetic words over the next few weeks that the Lord has been giving me through this beautiful Scripture:
“Yes! Look how you’ve made all your lovers to flourish like palm trees, each one growing in victory, standing with strength! You have transplanted them into your heavenly courtyard where they are thriving before you. For in your presence they will still overflow and be anointed. Even in their old age they will stay fresh, bearing luscious fruit and abiding faithfully.” – Psalm 92:12-14 (The Passion Translation)
I heard the Lord whisper over His beautiful children 55 and over:
“I am decreeing FLOURISHING, VICTORY, STRENGTH AND THRIVING UPON YOU! OH THE ENCOUNTERS WITH ME THAT SHALL BE HAD.”
Instantly, I was taken into a vision of Jesus in the Garden again. The Lord inviting those 55 and over down a beautiful golden pathway, flowers lined every side of this beautiful pathway and as His people accepted His invitation afresh to follow Him, I saw them take the hand of Jesus and walk together. I saw the flowers SO vibrant, SO alive, like there was a decree being released from them. Joy was all around and I heard Song of Songs 2:10-13:
“Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with Me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one. The season has now changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth with bright blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” – (The Passion Translation)
The atmosphere was filled with the sense of CHANGE all over these beautiful ones. Harvest of promises, harvest of prayers suddenly bursting forth. A deeper, beautiful season of awakening, no hiding, but a time of significant positioning in greater awakening of destiny. A season of radical freedom and increase.
The place of intimacy that the Lord was leading these ones into was a land that was BRANDED with the decree of the Lord. The land was branded with the fire of His love, that in this season there would be greater manifested victory, greater flourishing, fruitfulness, thriving and strength. (Isaiah 40:31)
The Lord was leading them into a land of encounters with His heart and His Word that would supersede any other season. A season of the greatest encounters with Jesus and outpouring of the Spirit of God in their lives.
I prophesy over you this is your season of flourishing. This is your season of your greatest fruitfulness, thriving, strength, vision, creativity, destiny, harvest and victory. This is your season of your greatest awakening! This is your season to TAKE YOUR PLACE in greater ways!
FRESH BREAD AND STAYING FRESH
Jesus showed me in this new land, there is such a depth of receiving FRESH BREAD AND STAYING FRESH! A deeper place of receiving the deeper revelation of the Word of God, the daily, fresh manna from heaven..
“Bread alone will not satisfy, but true life is found in every word, which constantly goes forth from God’s mouth” – Matthew 4:4 (The Passion Translation)
Jesus said to them “I am the Bread of Life. Come every day to me and you will never be hungry. Believe in me and you will never be thirsty.” – John 6:35 (The Passion Translation)
FIFTY FIVES AND OVER WILL CARRY A NEW FIRE
The Lord showed me a fresh baptism of fire coming upon those 55 and over. A fresh baptism of the fire of His presence and fire of His love, such a beautiful deeper branding of His presence and love. Things that have attempted to hold you back, will be burnt away. Things that have laid dormant, will suddenly be ignited. A great activation is upon you, and a great birthing is taking place. The Lord is positioning you for the more. The preparation, the positioning, the purification, the pruning for what is upon us right now in the body of Christ. Many of you have been through an time of intense fire, and just when you thought you were coming out, the fire got hotter. The Lord showed me that major breakthrough is upon you. There is a DOUBLE PORTION is being released TO YOU and THROUGH YOU. I saw such powerful moves of the Spirit of God through you, signs, wonders and miracles and it awakened the fire in you for MORE. It awakened passion for Jesus like never before. Many of you being SUDDENLY awakened to what you carry and the weightiness of what you carry. Things that have tried to hide you, lie to you or lack of direction, suddenly falling off as you are awakened to what is possible in Jesus and the awakening of dreaming again, free from disappointment or regret of the past. It woke you out of any slumber, and filled you with a sense of excitement in greater ways for the plans the Lord has for you, that it is not over, it’s just the beginning.
The enemy has come with fire to attempt to kill you, but you have remained as you saw the fourth man in the fire (Daniel 3:25), and the Lord has come with His fire and purged, purified, refined and prepared.
I heard the Holy Spirit say:
“Where you have been through intense seasons of fire, it is now time for you to move into a season of awakening, impartation and release of My fire through you. You are now to carry My fire more powerfully than you ever have. Great healing, restoration, increase and freedom was given to you in the fire and now it is time for you to take your place in greater ways. Get ready for great favour to open up over you. Get ready for the activation of My Spirit upon you to FATHER and MOTHER many in the body of Christ and in the world. To nurture, to model, to build, to assist and to mentor.”
Instantly I had a vision and I saw many 55 and over who were sitting on the sidelines, suddenly being catapulted to the forefront in different realms and areas, by the Spirit of God to spearhead a mighty awakening of the Fathers and Mothers in the body of Christ and the world. A great move of the Spirit of God of restoring the place of the Fathers and Mothers in the body of Christ.
FIFTY FIVES AND OVER, YOU ARE A KEY!!
I heard the Lord say:
“Fifty fives and over you are a key!” and this sense surrounded me strongly that in this great outpouring and move of the Spirit of God upon us unlike anything we have ever seen before on the earth, that many 55 years old and over could have been feeling like there is such a focus on the younger generation/s and the question has plagued many “What do I carry?” and the sense of feeling left behind, but the Lord showed me that what the Lord is doing now is multigenerational and that what the over fifties CARRY and the Lord will release through them is a KEY to UNLOCK more of what God is wanting to manifest in the Church and into the nations of the world. There is going to be a great UNLOCKING that will take place, an unlocking of the more that God is releasing, that will take place through those fifty five and over.
“Heavenly wisdom will be unlocked and restored in many ways in the body of Christ through those 55 and over.”
I saw these treasure chests of heavenly wisdom and revelation stored within many of these ones and over but it had not been called out, it had been overlooked, not appreciated or thrown to the side, but I saw JESUS HIMSELF placing His hand of release and activation upon these treasure chests deep within the hearts of those 55 and over and SUDDENLY wisdom and revelation was flowing out like tidal waves into the body of Christ. This wisdom and revelation was bringing an even greater unlocking, activation and impartation in the body of Christ.
I saw many over 55 have passionately sought after the wisdom of God. They have chased it, positioned themselves for it and it has cost them a lot but they received great revelation that wisdom is the most valuable commodity.
“Wisdom is the most valuable commodity – so buy it! Revelation knowledge is what you need – so invest in it!” – Proverbs 4:7 (The Passion Translation)
It’s time for the 55’s and over to arise in greater ways! A significant shifting season is upon you! It’s time! You’re going to THRIVE AND SHINE!

GENERATION GAP NO MORE!
I’m 75 and have been mentoring some 21 to 28 year olds. One of my grandsons has been bringing a bunch of unlikelies together and I have become their “SPIRITUAL GRANDMOTHER”.
They are so hungry for LOVE. They have been rejected over and over again. BUT GOD….is stepping in and giving them LOVE they never knew.
What does it require? LOVE….
THEN JUST POUR IT OUT! As you pour it out it will come back to you.
Next you need A HEART TO LISTEN..
You learn and they do too! This blesses everyone.
Believe me …It will keep you young and full of joy!
THRIVE AND SHINE…..sounds good to me. To be used for His Glory.

Woohoo! Amen. Yes I am 56yrs old and I grab that word and say yes Lord, let it be to me as You have said.
Having been through 7 years of difficulty following an operation and having to change my life, I have felt sidelined and confined in life. But now I see I am not overlooked or forgotten, and I take all that God is giving and doing in me and I will run with it.
God is faithful and nothing is wasted with Him. In all things God works for the good of those who love Him – Romans 8:28
Thank you for sharing this timely word.
God bless you all.
Thank you for that word I am 58 and have felt that I have been left on the side lines this has encouraged he, God Bless You

Yes, I receive that. I have invested a great price in Wisdom and Revelation knowledge.
I am going to rise and thrive from this day forward. Lord I am available to you. Thank you for the recent opportunities to make presentations in Public Administration–the Mountain of Government and the upcoming opportunity to present “We deliver heart or we are finished” in an upcoming workshop Tuesday.
In Jesus Name
Charlene from TN
Wooo HOOOO! Right ON for me! Even this last week, the move forward has been marked by increase both in revelation and financially, and as always, my husband and I are Speaking and seeking the heart of God for his Wisdom in all. THAT is what we are after at this point in our lives, so this Word is timely and RIGHT ON, the big themes along with the little notes made in parenthesis to me by the Spirit!
This Word speaks to me so loudly! I turn 55 in days and my husband is over 55! Seven years ago the enemy came in and stole so many dreams from us. I’ve been contending for wisdom everyday in prayer for us. I receive and believe this Word deep into my spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen. God Bless you, Lana.
A profound wellspring of blessings…deep, deep encouragement for many who have been forerunners and who have spent years in intercession…bless you, Lana! For these precious ‘gemstones’ from the Lord…
Our immense vision and passion was given over a few years in the 1970’s and the enemy has continually fought us over and over again! We are obscure and almost taken out! BUT…. I will not faint!
Thank you for the release of this word!!! I will be 57 on April 5th and have felt exactly as you described in this Word. I have wished i had done things differently as a young adult and asked for a do over. Recently, I had a dream where I saw a box of “Suddenly salad “, heard the word catapult and fish fry. Then I heard that Suddenlies would come upon me like a lion waiting in ambush. So, I receive this word and look forward to being a part of God’s army. I want to bring the kingdom of God to the people around me. I am thankful that I have significance and evidence that confirms my dream. I want to be about the Fathers business and go forth in the marketplace! Amen
Like the Eagle who gets to a certain age, where the “Old” must go so the “New” can replace it to ensure the Latter Rain will be greater than the former… Gods New Wine cannot be poured into Old Wine Skins but can and will be Poured into RENEWED Wineskins provided one chooses to pay the price. Firstly the mature, predictable, palatable & controllable Old Wine has to be freely dispensed of for the Greater Good to come… Now the Old Wineskin finds itself empty and repeatedly doubting the wisdom of this decision but having no alternative but to press on to that which truly will test one to the extreme – The Renewing (Repeated Working/Annealing with Oil) of the dry, brittle and fixed in its ways, Old Wine Skin! This does not come about any other way than a Slow Cook Process from above and will be repeatedly repeated in parts, depending on ones acceptance and levels of willingness to reach completion no matter what! Hebrews 12:11 (Amplified Bible) says: “For the time being this brings no joy but seems grievious and painful; BUT AFTERWARDS IT YIELDS A PEACEABLE FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN TRAINED BY IT – IN CONFORMITY TO GODS WILL IN PURPOSE, THOUGHT AND ACTION.”
Thank you Lana for this Word… Like Caleb with the “Different Spirit” at 85 years old once in the Promised Land, accomplished more than when he was 45 for this very same reason!!! Bless you.
I am ready Lord! Amen Hallelujah Thank you Jesus in your mighty glorious name!
Thank you for sharing Lana. God’s timing is perfect & His word is amazing! Praise God, Praise God, Praise God!!! Thank you Lord.
Thank you Lana! This message was straight from Heaven to me — today on my 71st birthday! And you carried it during the months of my dark valley–a very scary painful illness with no sense of the presence of God. I knew that only miracles could bring fulfillment of promises–nothing of my own strength to believe or declare, or even many times to trust Him. If anything, I was like a child hiding my face in His chest, and wondering why He wasn’t rescuing me. Then suddenly, a few days ago, big changes! And, here I am celebrating a new beginning–a new life of fulfilling destiny. Your words through the last 9 mines have been a lifeline. Many of them I have printed out and highlighted–as is today’s!!! I always marvel at how profoundly and specifically God speaks thro you–like He was just listening to my heart or conversation with my family. And, how critical that was in these months when He seemed out of reach.
I thank Him for you. And, for rescuing me, and filling me with new expectation that what I had hoped really is breaking through! Double portion! Better than we ask or think! Heaven on Earth! Renewing of youth! Living in awareness of Hs Presence!

Lana, I absolutely love and receive this. I’m over…..I’m 71. An old treasure chest who has received many treasured words from Papa….yet to be fulfilled or made manifest. Been active and over active and for the best part of three years been being taught by Spirit how to just BE IN HIM. I’m ready to put into action this concept. Ready for this new season you speak of. ???
Glory to God! What a great encouraging message! I receive all that God has to pour out! Amen!

Wow! Ms. Vawser, thank you for this word from our great God! He sent me back to school to obtain a doctoral degree a couple of years ago. I am now 67-years-old. At the time, I thought, “No way!” and “But God, I am too old!” He said to me, “You are living for eternity.” “What is 65 when you are living for eternity?” And so, here I am and here I’ll stay until His work is finished. God bless you!
May 7th I will be 55. In my thirties the Lord said my fifties would be a blessing. At 48 my world came crashing down long story short…a Month after my 50th birthday God blessed me to marry HIS CHOSEN MAN…51-54…it seemed that nothing was going right but God was always reminding me about my Fifties. I was just telling my hubby…my 55th b’day God is I feel getting ready to really move…hubby two weeks after mine he will be 59! We’ve been through sooooooo much these last few but all we know now…was preparation for what’s to come and God said to ME…HE WILL BE GLORIFIED! I’M EXCITED BUT PATIENTLY WAITING!
