Standard Decisions

During quiet time recently, Holy Spirit revealed to me that many are being tested in new levels of prosperity. 

The Lord is saying:

Just as you have been tested in persecution, so, too, will you be tested in prosperity. You will be tested in fulfilling your role in the promises I put in your heart long ago that I am bringing to pass. You will be tested in prioritizing Me in all you have been given and in all you have to do. For to whom much is given, much is required. You will be tested in following Me, depending on Me and obeying Me right now and in your very near future. There is only new wine here and there. You will be tested to be made stronger in Me.

I Am God, who gives and takes away. I have given you much with much more to come, and now it’s time to begin to move into position to do as I have revealed to you. You have known this time is coming. This time of great shift, of multiplicity and great outpouring. It will be as I have said. I have given you what you need. It’s time to decide which way you will go, says The Lord. Will you go your own way or make decisions by My standards? I require commitment. Do you believe Me? Will you trust Me? Will you seek Me and inquire of Me? 

It’s time to shine, says The Lord. My glory Presence will be with you all the way. I will cover you from consequences as you keep your eyes on Me. So, draw near to Me, abide in Me and go forward with Me. I will make your way light. I will be your truth. I will pour out My grace upon grace on you. Even when the enemy sends those close to you to deflect your gaze off of Me, do not engage in the battle. They are being influenced by the same demons sent to provoke you off course during your time of persecution. So, trust Me to fight on your behalf, says The Lord. Bless the people, keep moving forward and that evil will fall away.

I see your heart, says The Lord, and I am reviving hearts. I am bringing the renewal of regeneration and reconnections for those willing to take refuge in Me. I am bringing great joy for those who remember Me. I am bringing the change for which you have prayed and waited. The time is now. So, watch alongside Me, says The Lord, and be awed as I bring you into the greatest manifest abundance you have ever known. Just as it was long ago, when I revealed to you that your whole life would change and nothing would be the same, so it is coming around again. I will renew your life.

There are those reading and hearing this Word, who are wondering, “What about me?” To these chosen ones I say, when you fully confess and repent of your rebellion and defilement, when you choose to obey Me and receive My correction, when you choose to trust in Me and draw near to Me, I will shut the mouths of the roaring lions against you and deliver you up out of the mouths of the devouring wolves at night. For I am in the midst and My mighty deliverance will be expeditious, saysThe Lord. 

When you turn to Me, it will happen suddenly. As fast as it came, it will go. And I will restore your faith for new life (resurrection life, abundant life) swiftly. I will delight in you. Your vindication will shine like the noonday sun. I will dispense My justice on your behalf as you honor Me. Return to me, says The Lord of Hosts. Do it My way. And you will see that I will not fail you but delight in you. 

Scriptures that Holy Spirit highlighted to me are:

Colossians 3:1-4 TPT – “Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!”

Hebrews 12:2 TPT – “We look away from the natural realm and we focus our attention and expectation onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!”

Luke 12:48 TPT – “For those who have received a greater revelation from their master are required a greater obedience. And those who have been entrusted with great responsibility will be held more responsible to their master.”

1 John 5:21 NIV – “Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.”

Zephaniah 3:1-3, 5 NIV – “Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! She obeys no one, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the Lord, she does not draw near to her God. Her officials within her are roaring lions; her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the morning. The Lord within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail, yet the unrighteous know no shame.”
