After a week of intense warfare and challenge, I encountered the Lord’s ministering spirit in my kitchen this week while making a meal.
I saw a cloud of white, much like morning mist, enter a corner of my kitchen where I had just been facing the wall, trying not to cry. No one else in my home could see this cloud, but the weighty presence of God could be felt. I realized that this was an invitation, and as I stepped into the cloud, I hit my knees in worship. Hot, raw tears flowed down my cheeks as the ministering presence of God did a quick work in my heart on the floor. His presence was real and it was weighty, and though it only took a few moments of encounter I walked out encouraged, full of hope and with a very quiet mind.
I felt like this was a prophetic word for the Body of Christ in this season, so I prayed into it and this is what the Lord said:
“I am removing weariness from you in a second,” says the Lord. “I am removing grief from your heart. I am touching the numb places with LIFE,” says the Lord. “New life, life that sprouts and multiplies in an accelerated rate! No longer will you hide in the corners, with your face to the walls hiding the pain and exhaustion. I will send my ministering Spirit and I will do in a moment what would take months and years in the natural,” says the Father.
“You will be able to go forth in my power when the day time breaks forth, and you will be able to move in the darkest of moments. I will lead you when all seems easy, and when life appears to be hard. I go before you and I will make a way and I will not depart from you,” says the Lord.
“Go back to the kitchen and continue to prepare,” says the Father! “Do not stop what you were doing before the weariness hit. A season of reaping is coming for all you have sewn, and there are more preparations to make. I will help you,” says the Lord.
“Can you see it? I am a GOOD FATHER and I am releasing My ministering Spirit to my Bride. It will come in unusual and extraordinary ways, and it will be an invitation into a healing so that you can keep building, keep creating, keep cooking up what I have given you in this time. Expect the unexpected! I SEE YOU.....”
Exodus 13:21 - The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.
Genesis 16:13 - Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?”
