I heard Him release a warning, “Don’t forget me.”

About two years ago, I had a radical encounter with the Lord that changed my life. Sitting on the floor of my prayer room delighting in Him, He began to show me a season of incredible breakthrough, blessing upon blessing, increase and abundance that was coming to the Church. In that season of incredible provision, that season of incredible harvest and fruitful abundance, there would be SO much blessing all around, but in the midst of all the blessing, all the provision and all the increase, I heard Him whisper to me… “But don’t lose Me. Don’t forget Me.”

This incredible sense surrounded me that in the midst of the increase that was coming that was so significant, so beautiful, so refreshing, the change of the season into a land full of breakthrough of promises, to not forget Him. To be “intentional” in the blessing and abundant “new lands” to be pressing deeper into the quiet place, the secret place of intimacy with Him like never before.

Recently, this encounter has been stirring in me SO much. When I asked the Lord why it was stirring in me again, He whispered to me that two years ago I was forerunning what He is releasing now.

The Lord recently brought me back to a passage of Scripture that He brought before my eyes a year ago. It’s from Deuteronomy 8:7-18:

7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills;
8 a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey;
9 a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.
11 “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments and His ordinances and His statutes which I am commanding you today;
12 otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them,
13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies,
14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
15 He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint.
16 In the wilderness He fed you manna which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end.
17 Otherwise, you may say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth.’
18 But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:7-18)

There is so much in this passage which I believe the Lord is speaking through today, and I will continue to unpack this and share as the Lord leads me to, but today I want to encourage you with this.

The Lord is bringing you into a good, new land. It is a land that is going to be a land of refreshing. There is going to be new wine, there is going to be healing, there is going to be increase, there is going to be abundant provision – the camels are coming. There is going to be financial increase for many of you. There is going to be favor, opportunity, increase, blessing upon blessing, hearts desires fulfilled, tremendous fruitfulness and your heart is going to DELIGHT and BE SATISFIED in all the Lord releases in you and to you. His heart is for you to THRIVE in your new land.

There is going to be tremendous blessing…

“May the LORD, the God of your ancestors, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!” (Deuteronomy 1:11)

There is going to be tremendous increase that you will receive, but in the midst of the increase, in the midst of the blessing… I feel the heart of God SO strongly..

“Don’t forget Me”

I feel a beautiful, loving warning from the heart of God, that in the midst of the tremendous increase and blessing coming to you, stay deep in the secret place. Stay close to His heart and I feel the Lord saying that as you stay deep in the secret place, “YOU WILL REMEMBER”.

Be intentional to continue to “come away” with Him. He is bringing you in the midst of tremendous blessing and increase to a greater place of “union” with Him.

OBEDIENCE OVER OPPORTUNITY

I have been talking a lot about this lately, but the Lord is having me repeat this over and over. “Obedience over opportunity”. In this new land of blessing, of provision, of increase, stay close to His heart and seek His strategy. Seek His guidance and His WAY to steward all that He is releasing. For in this new land, there will be many opportunities, but the Lord is encouraging us to continue to choose Him and choose to obey His voice, no matter how sparkly the opportunity is that comes. Do not forget the commands of the Lord, do not forget the strategy that He has given you. Do not forget to hold to His decrees. For the “pathways” in this new land of significant increase, may be completely different to what you expect and the Lord may have you “go against the grain”, but I encourage you to OBEY His voice even when you don’t understand.

I had a significant dream this year where the Lord showed me increase coming to the people of God and the wisdom that would be NEEDED to steward the increase He is releasing. As I was waking, the Lord spoke to me “Lana, in this season, increase and wisdom are marrying.” So I implore you, in this season of incredible increase that is about to burst forth in a whole new way in the new lands, to be seeking the wisdom and strategy of God to know how to STEWARD the land of incredible blessing and increase. (James 1:5)

BE INTENTIONAL TO REMEMBER – A WARNING AGAINST PRIDE

12 otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them,
13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies,
14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. (Deuteronomy 18:12-14)

In this new land of increase and blessing, as we continue to remember His decrees and obey His voice, staying deep in the secret place, close to His heart, our hearts will be guarded. I felt the Lord saying to “BE INTENTIONAL TO REMEMBER”. Be INTENTIONAL to remember what He has done for you, who He is, and where you have “come from” in the place of incredible increase and blessing. Whatever that looks like for you, be purposeful to REMEMBER all He has done for you and brought you through.

…who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
15 He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint.
16 In the wilderness He fed you manna which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end. (Deuteronomy 18:14-16)

I felt this warning from the heart of such a beautiful Father, our perfect heavenly Father, because He is wanting His people to be guarded from the place of pride. I saw in the new land of incredible blessing and increase, I saw MANY beginning to struggle with pride, and pride creeping into hearts and a great “forgetting” was taking place, but the Lord is releasing such a beautiful warning to us as His people, that as we enter into this place of incredible blessing and increase, that we stay deep in that place of intimacy where He develops humility within us, He refines by fire, He purifies and He leads us. In this new land, as we live deep in the secret place, He is going to bring about great rest, He is going to bring about great refreshment and He is going to continue to remove the things within us that continue to wage war against what He is wanting to build and release.

SO MUCH IS ABOUT TO CHANGE

SO much is about to change!!! This is the season of radical change, and I sense the strategy of the enemy to attempt to lure hearts in their promised lands into a place of busyness or hinder that quiet, secret place, deep place of intimacy with Jesus, because the enemy doesn’t want us as God’s people to know how to STEWARD the increase, he wants it hindered.

But friend, I encourage you today, as the Lord leads you into this new land, as the blessing, the increase, the financial blessing, the breakthroughs explode all around you more and more, stay close to His heart. Be intentional to come away with Him and remember what He has done and from where you have come. There is a glorious new depth of intimacy awaiting you in your new land of promise. The Lord wants you to be filled with great joy, your heart glad and rejoicing in your blessing and the increase He is releasing upon you, but He also wants you to stay in the place of deep communion with Him. He wants to develop your union with Him in greater ways in the land of blessing.

The Lord whispered to me…”Many know how to steward the deep place of intimacy in hardship and trial and at times lack, but few know how to steward the deep place of intimacy in the increase, in the blessing and in the abundant favor.”

He wants to teach us in a whole new and fresh way how to steward increase and blessing with integrity, humility and purity and I believe that is why it is so imperative as He leads us into these new lands of increase and blessing that we are sowing into the secret place of knowing Him, delighting in Him, our beautiful Jesus, as our true source, our first love, our all in all, more than EVER before.

I saw many of God’s people swimming in the rivers of the Spirit at depths they had never experienced, moving in such a powerful flow of revelation of His Word and who He is as they stayed deep in the secret place. A whole new realm of flowing with Him, the leading of His Spirit and being sensitive to heaven’s strategy.

The land before you is BOUNTIFUL, and in His heart and the secret place, He will teach you to steward it and enjoy it with great joy!!!!

The Lord whispered to me…”Many know how to steward the deep place of intimacy in hardship and trial and at times lack, but few know how to steward the deep place of intimacy in the increase, in the blessing and in the abundant favor.” Amen, amen! I have a personal experience to share that is a total confirmation of what the Lord has spoken to Lana. Last December, very urgently one night, the Lord told me to come away with Him for 10 days because “You’re not going to make it in the next season if you don’t.” That’s a direct quote: “You’re not going to make it in the next season unless you come away with Me now.” The Lord was so insistent, I don’t mind telling you the warning scared me. I thought, oh no, what’s about to happen? So I didn’t delay. That very night I made arrangements to spend 10 days away, just me and the Lord, fasting and praying at a cabin in the woods. And what do you know? Surprise, surprise. Once I got to my destination, and I was enjoying the most intimate, beautiful, satisfying and uninterrupted fellowship with the Lord, very soon He clarified: “Are you prepared for success?” He asked me. I was totally surprised by the question, in no way was I expecting it. “It takes great GRACE to be successful,” He said. “GREAT grace. You thought something bad was going to happen. But I am telling you success is coming. Great success. And unless you continue to meet with Me as you are now, you won’t make it in the next season. You’ll lose your footing. Because the next season is filled with blessing so great, success so great, without My GRACE to handle it, you will fall.” I… Read more »

This word really speaks to me, I have had many blessings lately and they have been both in the spirit and in abundance of wealth. I also know that the attacks have been coming on strong to where I fall and then get back up, His mercy’s are new every day, praise God. Lately, I have been reading the accounts of the crucifixion and have watched the Gospel of John so I stay focused on Jesus. I felt I was wandering and needed to get back to what was important, what my King did for me. In this season I have learned that my revelations of the King are a gift, veils that have been lifted, so my understanding of those who don’t see what I see is more filled with compassion than ever before. I stay silent more than I did and try to follow Gods will when talking to people. My prayers are that I bear more fruit for the kingdom. It is definitely a new season for me.

Thanks for sharing Barb. I believe this is the right word for this time, especially as we begin the Feast of Tabernacles today. God has been preparing a remnant for these last days and the season of preparation is now coming to an end, which is why she saw big changes coming soon with the warning not to forget God.

…because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shall surely rejoice. In Deut 16.

You shall take the boughs of goodly trees on the first day. In Leviticus 23

For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

…in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles…In Deut 31:10-12

I just read this scripture from Deuteronomy today and then found this article this evening!!! This is great truth. Another scripture about coming blessing is from 2 Kings 6:24 through all of chapter 7. However, not all will be “blessed” by the blessings as they will not be able to receive them due to their unbelief. The Lord gave me this message to preach less than 2 years ago.
