God never promised us that our life of faith would be easy.

And today, you may be facing an impossibility—an obstacle that is looming large on your horizon. But know this: Your Father is never out of options.

The wind of Heaven is blowing, and God is about to move on your behalf.

In Pursuit of God, But Out of Options

Even the Biblical heroes of faith found that obedience to God could lead them to a tight spot. Take Moses, for example.

God instructed Moses to take the people of Israel by a route that led them right into danger! (Ex 14)

With the Egyptian army pursuing them, and a sea barring the way ahead of them, it seemed Israel had only two options. Would they drown as they fled into the sea, or face death, punishment and slavery (again) from their enemy?

Moses and Israel may have been at an impasse—but God had a wind.

When Moses obeyed God’s command and raised his staff over the sea, the Lord began to act.

And ‘…all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided…’ (Exodus 14:21 NIV)

When it seems like you have run out of options in pursuit of God’s will, stop and look to Heaven.

Your Father already has a plan—to confound your enemy and deliver you.

Feel His wind blowing. That obstacle is about to become a passageway into your next chapter with Him.

In Transition, With No Clear Way Ahead

Perhaps you find yourself in a time of transition. You’ve seen God move powerfully, but you find yourself in a difficult situation, and are not sure how to proceed.

Noah spent much of his life building an ark in obedience to God. As a result, God used his boat to save his family, along with livestock and animals as a flood ravaged the earth.

  • They were safe, but there was a complication—as far as Noah’s eyes could see, from horizon to horizon, there was water.

The earth was covered with floodwaters and there was no place to land the boat. How long would they be stuck on board, with limited food and space?

Noah was faced with an insurmountable problem, but God had a wind.

‘But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.’ (Genesis 8:1 NIV)

God opened His Heavenly storehouse. And as that wind blew over the earth, the waters receded and the earth began to dry.

So today, if you have done your best to follow the call of God, but right now have no idea how it can possibly work out—be encouraged.

Your Father has not forgotten you. Feel His breath of life blowing over your situation—the Holy Spirit is working on your behalf.

The Burden Seems Too Heavy to Bear

Let’s be honest. In our walk with God, there may be times when hardships in our service for Him start to weigh us down.

And maybe you haven’t always got it right—you may even have experienced fallout from a mistake you made. Or, you’ve been struggling with your attitude recently.

Today, know that God’s grace and forgiveness is abundant towards you. It is time to turn your heart Heavenward again.

In Numbers 11, the lone burden of leadership was heavy upon Moses. Faced with the impossibility of meeting the people’s craving for meat, along with their ugly criticism, Moses did not know how he could continue.

At one of Moses’ lowest places—when he could see no way out, God had an answer.

God told Moses to choose seventy leaders who would share the governance of Israel. The Holy Spirit was about to fall on the nation’s leaders and anoint them.

But there was more, God announced. The people craved meat, and they were about to get so much of it they would loathe it, and never ask for it again.

At this point Moses went from hopelessness to unbelief. ‘Lord, this is impossible!’

Moses saw an impossibility, but God had a wind.

Now a wind went out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits deep all around the camp, as far as a day’s walk in any direction.’ Numbers 11:31 NIV

Today, know that whatever impossible situation you face, no obstacle is so large that it cannot be swept aside by the move of God.

Your Father has a wind.

He can make a way, provide a miracle and change the hardest of hearts.

Lift your face to Heaven and feel the breeze. For the breath, the wind of God is on the way.

Soaring on the Wings of Spirit-Wind

‘He stretched heaven’s curtain open and came to my defense. Swiftly he rode to earth as the stormy sky was lowered. He rode a chariot of thunderclouds amidst thick darkness, a cherub his steed as he swooped down, soaring on the wings of Spirit-wind.’

(Psalm 18:9-10, TPT)

Prayer and Declaration

Today I declare, my God has a wind! Thank you Lord, that your Spirit is moving on my behalf. You are the Keeper of Promises, and You are faithful. And even though I cannot see the answer right now with my eyes, I choose to declare it with my mouth. As Moses held up that staff in the face of the impossibility, I hold fast to my confession of faith.

  • The favor that’s working for me is greater than the opposition that’s working against me!

Lord, You make a way where there seems to be no way, and you are making a way for me.
You are Healer.
You are Deliverer.
You are Provider.
And when You act, nothing can stand in Your way.
Over and above all, I rejoice in the fact that You are with me and shall never leave me. I delight in You Jesus, my Lord and my God.

Discernment can Propel You Into an Encounter with God’s Glory

The gift of discernment of spirits is a powerful weapon in times of spiritual warfare, and can be of great assistance when ministering freedom to individuals.

  • And those with a gift of discernment have the extraordinary privilege of being able to perceive the Spirit’s anointing!

Yet many who have the gift of discernment have difficulty knowing what to do with what they are feeling or sensing.

In this recently updated third edition, I have added a chapter on five specific spiritual attacks discerners face and how to overcome each one. I have revised other chapters, added new content and finished with an inspirational chapter on how the gift of discernment can propel you into an encounter with God’s glory.

‘Unlocking The Gift Of Discernment’ incorporates wisdom from Enliven Blog as well as additional valuable material on how to be protected as a discerner in times of spiritual warfare.

  4. This word has given me a renewed spirit as I am struggling with my 12 year old in a new school. He is making wrong choices because he tends to be impulsive. If he continues this path he may be expelled from school.
    He Is a a bright gifted child. His name is Joseph Daniel.
    I have book marked scriptures to read tonight and am really seeking divine intervention.

    1. Hi Carmen, I’m praying for you and Joseph Daniel right now, may God’s rich peace be poured over his life and his schoolwork, relationships and choices come into alignment with God’s ways for him, may he be settled in the new school, in Jesus’ Name

  5. Truly, I thank and praise the Lord, for this prophetic word of encouragement. I have been through some hard times this year. I lost my Mother on my birthday 01/19/2018, five months later I lost my oldest brother, in between the two deaths, I suffered from Church hurt from different ones in my church, but through it all, I am still a survivor. I am still faced with and going through, but My God will deliver me and elevate me in Him. Please continue to pray my strength and continuation in the Lord. There are times when I feel like I am not growing, I feel as if I am on a standstill in Jesus. Back to the prophetic word, I believe and I receive every word that proceeded out of your mouth from Jesus through your heart unto all who will read, believe, receive and respond by letting you know that this powerful word is God sent.
    Thanks again,


    1. Hi Rosaland, you’ve been through a tough time. Praying for your strength and refreshing, and may this word bear fruit as you have said yes and amen, I say that with you. <3
