Sunday night (5/30/21) I was relaxing and meditating on a powerful church service my church had earlier that day and, the intensity of the past few weeks. I really began to feel a shift and clearing taking place in the realm of the spirit. The Lord began to show me these storm clouds moving out because the storm had passed. As the storm clouds cleared out, I felt the Lord releasing a period of rest and recalibration to His people before it was time to gear up again for the second half of this year.
This is what I heard the Lord say for this season, “I feel a fresh wind of the Holy Spirit blowing. This wind is breaking up the warfare that’s been over you and your household the past few weeks. Clearer skies are on the horizon for you says the Lord. This heavenly wind is dealing with your adversaries. I’m causing My winds to scatter the adversaries and obstacles that have come against you in this season says the Lord. As quick as it came it will be no more. The enemy surrounded you in this season but look again. Where are your adversaries now says the Lord. They will be no more. You will not find them. For My winds are blowing in your favor. I’m dealing with the adversary on your behalf says the Lord. Breakthrough and victory are your portion. Clearer skies are on the horizon.”
Let’s take a look at the meaning of the word clearing.
- an open space in a forest, especially one cleared for cultivation.
- the act or process of making or becoming clear. A tract of land cleared of wood and brush.
- the settlement of accounts or exchange of financial instruments especially between banks. (www.merriam-webster.com)
As you go through the meaning of the word clearing you can map out a strategy for this season.
Firstly, know that God has a space and a place marked out for you. Psalm 18:17-19 CSB says, “7He rescued me from my powerful enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me. 18They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support. 19He brought me out to a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.” The enemy would want for us to get anxious and worried about what “our space” looks like. Sometimes we can’t see what God is doing or where our space is. But know that God is making room for you at the table and anointing you with fresh oil in this season (Ps23).
Secondly, the process of becoming and making clear. Clearing the debris. God is always faithful to lead us through the process from one season to the next. Although the process is uncomfortable, it’s necessary. Deliverance is always needed as we come into the new. Sometimes we’re not able to fully step into our next season because the debris of last season is still in us. What is the debris that you need to have the Lord clear out in you. You need the Breaker to go before you to clear out in you so, He can move through you. Micah 2:13 AMP says, “The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; So their King goes on before them, The LORD at their head.” Trust the Lord’s leadership and clearing in you. He knows what He is doing. In the clearing the Lord is going to clear out and stretch your capacity because more is required of you in this season (Isa54).
Thirdly, settlements are coming. Recompense. What does settlement mean. It can mean an agreement to settle a dispute or argument, final payment, adjusting and account, and occupying a place (Merriam-Webster.com). I believe the Lord is bringing His people into time of settling matters or the court cases in the spirit that have been open over them. God desires to settle the matters that have been hindering your progress and opening the door for the enemy to have access to you. Psalm 92:10-12 TPT says, 10 Your anointing has made me strong and mighty. You’ve empowered my life for triumph by pouring fresh oil over me. 11 You’ve said that those lying in wait to pounce on me would be defeated, and now it’s happened right in front of my eyes, and I’ve heard their cries of surrender! 12 Yes! Look how you’ve made all your devoted lovers to flourish like palm trees, each one growing in victory, standing with strength!” Be encouraged, the Lord is dealing with the opposition and warfare that you’ve dealt with this season. He’s anointing you with fresh oil to overcome.
As the Lord begins to release the clearing in your life, expect a shift things on multiple levels in your life. He’s clearing things, relationships, warfare, obstacles, etc out to make room in you, so that He can make room for you in this season. As He makes room for you, He will establish you and cause you to flourish and grow in victory!
