I HEARD THE LORD ASK ‘WHO TOLD YOU THAT?’

Recently I heard the Lord asking a question to the body of Christ “Who told you that?”. When He asked the question it felt piercing, it felt like the Spirit of God was “exposing” lies and expectations that many of God’s people were living under that had not been spoken by the Lord.
Suddenly I began to see the Spirit of God shining His light upon areas in the lives of God’s people where they were living under ‘expectation of man’, limitations and words spoken over them that did not come from His heart. I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Where My people are living under the expectations and pressures of man they find no ease”
The sense of “suffocation” surrounded me. The sense of “not being able to breath deeply” and a place void of joy but filled with burden and pressure filled the atmosphere. This feeling of pressure was different to the pressure of the season of transition and a place of contending. This pressure screamed that the life and joy had been sucked out. When the Spirit of God took me higher in this vision I saw that these places of suffocation were happening in the walking out of certain “strategies”. “What’s expected of me”, “How something is meant to look”, “What I am supposed to be doing dictated by others” etc.
The Lord spoke again “In this new era there is a greater rest and ease in the anointing upon the strategies that I am breathing upon that will bring greater joy, life, peace and excitement for the vision that has ever been experienced. The SHIFTING and SIFTING of strategies is taking place right now. I am bringing a restlessness in the strategies of yesterday because it is time to come up higher and for My people to walk and engage in the strategy of My heart and My mind in a level they have never walked in before. It is time for My people to walk in the governmental anointing of heaven like never before, but they cannot access that place while remaining on the ground in the strategy of yesterday and the strategy of man.”
There is MAJOR freedom and MAJOR deliverance taking place right now in many areas in the body of Christ and the earth but especially in the area of STRATEGY and EXPECTATION. Expect God to make it VERY clear the strategy of His heart for your life, your ministry, your family, your city and nation. I heard the Lord say “It’s time to come out of containment. It’s time to COME OUT of APOLOGIZING for carrying something different, for having a bigger dream and vision that others are telling you that you can have. It’s time to come out from the place of APOLOGIZING for carrying a fire that goes against the grain. That is MY Pioneering mantle brewing and increasing within you. Do not fight it! Arise in it with confidence that I back you and am with you.”
Many of you are about to run in an empowerment of the Spirit of God that you have never experienced as you are delivered from the expectation of man and pressure of ‘man made wisdom and strategy’ that opposes the wisdom of God and blueprint for your life. God is transitioning you into the new strategies for the new era that will cause you to FLY.
COME UP HIGHER INTO THE WISDOM OF GOD
I heard the Lord say “Come up higher into My wisdom”
Proverbs 3:5-6 surrounded me:
“Trust in the Lord completely,
and do not rely on your own opinions.
With all your heart rely on him to guide you,
and he will lead you in every decision you make.
Become intimate with him in whatever you do,
and he will lead you wherever you go.” (The Passion Translation)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (ESV)
The greatest ease in the increase is upon you in the alignment with the wisdom of God and His ways.
It’s time to come out! It’s time to break out of the mold of expectations, limitations and strategies that don’t flow from the heart of the Father and to move in and operate from the wisdom of God like never before.
“Who told you that?” Watch the Spirit of God illuminate some areas where you may have been living under pressures and expectations and even placing your hands to things in ways that weren’t breathed on by the Holy Spirit or strategies that were for yesterday and it’s time to step into the new strategy in the increase of His wisdom that He is releasing for this new day. Stepping out of those places will see the frustrations come to an end and stepping into the new strategies and revelation of His wisdom for this new era will bring you into a new alignment with His ways that will usher you into the greatest level of ease, rest and joy in fulfilling all He has for you and in many unexpected and new ways in this new day. Do not allow fear of the new or the unknown cause you to ‘beat a dead horse’ of yesterdays strategy. It’s time to come up higher and see the power of God flow to you, in you and through you like never before.
It’s a new day of freedom to walk in the ways and wisdom of God for the exponential increase upon you. Many of you are about to get free to run in freedom of ALL God has for you in the expression He wants to release through you and the dream of His heart that He has placed within you, WITHOUT apology. It is time for monumental increase and demonstration of the power, favor and wisdom of God in and through your life to walk in greater manifestation of your destiny.
He whispered again:
“Only walking in My wisdom and heavenly strategy will see My people in the place of stewarding the increase and move of My Spirit in this new era with longevity.”
