2020: Here Come The Elephants
Updated: Apr 10, 2020
Many are prophesying 2020 as a Isaiah 43:19 year ["Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert" AMP] and I 100% agree. This was the verse the Lord had me predominantly name each year with for the past 4years, until this year that is. I suppose because we have finally stepped into living in it not just prophesying it into being. This year is the Year of the Almond Branch [which I have spoken about already in my last blog post]. Jeremiah 1:11 - 12 " The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?” “I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied. The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” I have expanded on this previously so I won't repeat myself here, but know to look for the 'blossoms' to bloom over lives, and then fruit to be produced going forth. There is also faith to seek, to have the eyes or vision of the Lord, and see it manifest in the natural as the Lord is faithful to fulfil His word.
What I feel to share beyond this however for 2020 are three important areas the Lord has been showing me: The 3R's, Elephants and being authorised for assignment. Here goes...
The Three R's: Revive, Restore, Rebuild.
I saw that the first 4-6 months of this year it was focused upon and important to give room to the three R's of revive, restore and rebuild. Many, many people have been through the hardest challenges of their lives within the past 2years specifically. So many of these people are leaders, voices and kingdom advancers in the body not unaccustomed to spiritual warfare, and not easily overcome. However this season has been one where they had fought through on so many fronts, determined to breakthrough yet worn down by the relentless nature of opposition. I honour you who have endured the dark night of the soul and remained faithfully close to your Saviour, even if you felt the distance within the disappointment and questions. You are victors with our Christ and these first moths of the year are for you to revive, restore and rebuild. I can't ignore specifically how many attacks on the heath of ones lungs there have been in recent months. The enemy has tried in so many ways to rob the very breath, both in the natural and in the life giving breath of God within us, it also connects with others prophetic words on the silencing and muzzling over the body recently. I believe the Lord will first address the breath by reviving us, He is giving us our breath back, room to breathe - letting go of holding ourselves in the posture of tension from our season of being on alert and guarded so our lungs can fully take in the deep breat
