Many prophetic confirmations of what God is doing in this season have come forth in recent weeks and two new ones are shared below, both posted on Facebook yesterday. The common theme is a shift in seasons, the end of a long season of testing and the start of a new season of activating and fulfilling our assignments.
“You are embarking upon a new path. Many of you during this time will find yourselves turning the page of your life, literally. This is a season to leave old experiences that tried to capture your mind/heart/spirit for much too long. The Lord is gently nudging you forward and reassuring you that mistakes that occurred in the past will not be revisited.
‘This is a new hour in your life, hold on by faith to Me,’ says the Lord. ‘For I am moving you forth, so let prayer be your compass.’
He will navigate you through trouble waters. Remember the words that He’s spoken to you in times past. Rise up and take on this new course. Fear is not an option. Press through gently stepping over into new things.
I heard Him say it on this wise, ‘Do not go over those old paths that have lingered in your mind much too long. Look up, I am providing a new way, it is approaching you right now. Don’t miss it. Can you see it in your mind’s eye? It’s there waiting for you. Don’t allow the trouble of your past to blur your vision. It’s coming towards you. And the possibilities that are contained within it are endless. Only believe.”
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18-19 ESV)
Patti Finney Compton posted a similar word on her Facebook page. Patti is a descendant of Charles G. Finney, the famous leader of the second great awakening in the United States back in the 1800’s. She is also an ordained pastor and founder of Know Name Ministries.
“God saved the best for this grand finale and season. He is writing a new chapter in the story of your life, a journey worth living, for sure. Is it a long awaited love story waiting for you to embrace? Or is it a road filled with some twists and turns to move you more onto the frontlines, covered by His grace? Could it be a time where new doors of opportunity are waiting to be opened? Or is there new territory waiting to be discovered and explored like Joshua and Caleb? Or a new Mom, where something is being prepared to be birthed?
Whatever God has planned, we know we are about to embark on a brand new journey of our life.
Dress rehersal is coming to an end and it’s time to get this show on the road. For a changing of the guard is taking place and we’ve got to move with the move or settle for yesterday’s manna. Now, it’s time to close that last story of the other chapter in your life and time to open this new book, to see and envision the adventure God has for you and step on in.
You can’t begin a new chapter in your life without closing the other one in your life. Turning the pages of your life are easy for God. Like the wheel within the wheel, you turn when He turns and stop when He stops. He is rewriting all the scripts of your life story. God already knows the beginning to the end.
And I have to say, its going to be a grand finale, so step on in and see what’s waiting to be written on the pages of your life. You are in for a big surprise.”
These two messages are so similar, they even use the same metaphors. Phyllis Ford’s word identifies it as a time when we will turn the pages while Patti Finney Compton’s word urges us to close the old chapter in our life so we can begin the new one. Both words reveal we have a key part to play in what happens next. Phyllis Ford urges us to stop going over those old paths that have lingered too long while Pattie Finney Compton warns we must move with this move or settle for yesterday’s manna.
We are now in transition, so it’s time to be paying close attention to what God is leading us into because transition means changes are coming and most of us tend to resist any kind of changes because we prefer the known to the unknown. I believe one key to making a successful transition is relying totally on the leading of the Holy Spirit through the inner witness, tuning into what He is revealing, even when it contradicts what we hear with our physical ears and see with our physical eyes. Sometimes that means tuning out and turning off other voices so we can hear His voice more clearly. He will never lead us astray.
