ALIGNMENT by Bill Burns
God has revealed His divine government to the hearts of those who desired to live under His rule. He has been bringing order into the lives of those willing to live under His rule. Divine order is being established among His people.
In this season the Spirit of the Lord will align His people with His purposes. This alignment will be brought by way of revelation of God’s plans and purposes for individuals. These revelations will come through dreams, visions, prophetic words, signs and wonders.
We must watch and listen so that the opportunities for alignment are not missed. When the revelation of God’s purpose comes, you will be aligned, brought into spiritual positioning, to go through the door that is being opened to you.
Spiritual Doors will open in this season that will bring you into a new spiritual landscape. It will become a place of elevation—a higher place than you have been before—a place of purpose.
Revelation 3:8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.”
Once this door is opened to you and you enter into this spiritual environment, you will find the pathway that leads to the fulfillment of your destiny.
Some time ago I had a vision of this pathway that leads to spiritual understanding. The pathway went up a mountain and was called the “Ancient Pathway.” I understood that this was the pathway that the prophets of old walked on. As you begin to follow this path, you will see more clearly that which the Lord is showing you, and you will become more supernatural than you are now.
The doors will open, and the pathways revealed in this season because this is a season of divine fulfillment.
Isaiah 42:16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them.
This will be a time in which great grace will be on those who follow the path that the Lord has established for them. There will be designated places on the pathway that will become flash points of God’s glory that will transform them.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
This transformation will align us with the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). Our thoughts will become more Christ-like.
Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Small Straws by Marsha Burns:
The process of restoration has begun. Move with it in faith that what has begun will come to a full completion. Trust Me to help you move forward with strength and in the power of My Spirit, says the Lord. Refuse to allow fear to derail your progress. Stand unwavering and be resolute. Be renewed in faith, in hope, and in peace. The work of the enemy to tear you down has been formidable, but I will restore what has been torn down. I will strengthen what has become weakened through attacks on your body, soul and spirit. Yield to My power to build you up and prepare you to fulfill My purposes in your life. Yours is to overcome the despair that has developed as a result of relentless difficulties and begin to look to better days, says the Lord.
In a vision I found myself in an old house that was in need of repair. I heard the bells of destiny and was suddenly engulfed in a whirlwind of the Spirit of God that removed the structure of the house from around me. There I stood in midair with the things of the earth that weighed me down removed from me. The light of God was all around me and above and beneath me. I felt light as air; without hindrance. I was aware of a unity with God that manifested without any effort on my part. It was beautiful, exhilarating, refreshing and revitalizing. My youth was restored. And, I heard the voice of the Lord: "Beloved, I see and know your struggles and the weariness you have experienced. But, I tell you truly that a time of restoration and healing is upon you. Relax and receive all that I have for you." Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
The Lord often asked His prophets, “What do you see?” In this time it will be important to watch; to see what we are being shown.
Habakkuk 2:1 I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected.
The Lord is going to use your circumstances to show you things that need to be corrected. Our circumstances will reveal our motives and attitudes as we interact with our circumstances. Allow the Lord to use them as a classroom. Watch, listen, and learn. He will bring both correction and victory into every situation that you are involved in.
Proverbs 4:10-13 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.
The word “distress” indicates that nations are in anguish and with perplexity or an inability to think clearly). We see this distress in the world and among the nations.
This is clearly a sign that we are living in the end of the age. The people are rising up against the established authority, and they are demanding change.
Are You Prepared to leave the past behind and press into the glory of this time? The apostle Paul encouraged us to do as he has done.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Small Straws: The season of adjustment is upon you, but you will have to mentally and emotionally let go of things that tie you to the past before you can move forward in My purposes. If you will take this step of faith you will come into a place of liberty and fulfillment that you have not known before. Trust Me to bring you through this awkward transition with great grace, says the Lord. All you have to do is be willing and flexible.
These are the things I have seen, and they are yours to receive. It was as though I was riding on a very fast train, and these things came into view from the window that I was looking out of. They are just glimpses of what is ahead. Have a blessed ride; it will be a fast one. Stay safe!
