Restoration after desolation

I hear God say, ‘Restoration after desolation’; ‘Restoration after desolation’. Even a third time he speaks it, as a command, thus calling it to be established around and in you: ‘Restoration after desolation’. There are places in you that have felt as if an army of locusts were released and have stripped you bare, leaving […]

I will build you up again

You are created for my glory, you are set apart for me. Even before your birth I called you as one known by me and set aside for my purpose. It is time to come and take your place, to rebuild the ancient ruins, to rebuild my temple, the place where I would dwell; even your heart! Others […]

Restoration after the storm

All around is destruction, everything is spread out to the right and to the left. The storm clouds are gathering yet again. And the people ask, ‘How much more can we take? Will there be another tornado?’ The feeling of dread is rising as the skies darken and the funnel forms and begins to expand. The winds […]

The healing river

I watched an army, weary from war, weary from the enemy’s onslaught, weary from the march from battle to battle. I watched as they crossed a field and sat down by the banks of a river. I watched as they began to remove their heavy boots, to reveal their blood stained socks and finally their […]

Allow me to teach you to war

“Many are the casualties of war, many are the casualties of war”, I heard, but, as I looked, I could see that these casualties were those who had ignored the war. Just like those who would decide to sit down in the midst of a battlefield to drink a cup of tea – in the […]

No shadow of turning

Know now that there is no ‘shadow of turning’ in me! Have I not spoken and will I not do? Why do you think I have turned my back on you? You are mine and my eye is always on you! I know the shame you have carried and I know the ways you have tried […]

The oil and comb of the Lord

The Lord showed me a vision of fragrant oil being poured onto locks of hair. The hair, which had become tangled – even knotted and matted in places, was being restored. Father God was gently combing and brushing the hair, and pouring His restorative, thick, sweet-smelling oil onto each strand. Each tooth of the comb […]

The Lion of Judah Roars

I see the Lion of Judah roaring over you with power that blasts off all of the clothes you wear. Clothes of depression, even low mood, addictions, lusts; ungodly beliefs, desires and thoughts. As He roars, the clothes are simply blasted away, completely – and you are left with brand new shiny clothes which are […]

Choose Joy

My child, where has your joy gone? The prince of this world has taken it from you. The joy I give to you is something you feel, something you taste and experience. It is not a thought or an idea or even a hope. It is yours to have when you choose to align with […]

In My Presence

Psalm 27:4-6 One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me […]
