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.
Amen

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.

  1. Caleb Oluwatimilehin

    Hellen, I believe this message is given to you for me in particular. I am presently facing galore of challenges; I am cut off from the Ministry – far away from the church location, though I am the set-man, it was not working, I left it in the hands of my assistant, I am facing financial stagnation – my wife is the bread winner now, 2 children in the university. I am facing accommodation problem – I have been given one week quit notice and no money to rent another. My health is attacked – my wife is spending much money treating me of malaria and typhoid fever. I am confused. Your message has given me hope that God has not left me, the wind of God is blowing. Thank you my prophet.

    1. Hi Caleb, You have been through a lot – I am praying for you right now for a turn around in your situation, may the wind of the Spirit blow!
      May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Rom 15:13

  2. Hi Helen,

    This message spoke right into my situation and I thank the Lord for using your life because the last 3 posts ministered to me and I just had to testify.

    This particular post has jumped my Faith and I see a God who can make a way in my current situation though I see no way.

    May God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ increase you more and more.

  3. This morning in my hour of power, I heard the spirit of the Lord say, “trade winds”, but I didn’t know why. When I googled it, I took note of the following: Definition of trade wind 
    : a wind blowing almost constantly in one direction
    Even now, commercial ships use “the trades” and the currents the winds produce to hasten their oceanic voyages. 

    The trade winds are the prevailing pattern of easterly surface winds.
    I knew that the Lord was referring to his promises concerning me—-especially regarding my advancement within my company. When u came across your prophetic word, Helen, the Lord further clarified His plans concerning my situation and my long awaited miracle. Thank you for sharing the word of the Lord.

    1. Hi Antanina, that’s awesome! And you comment made me smile because that’s exactly what I do (look up definitions and research) The Holy Spirit shows me something or I receive a word and then I do research. I love how He reveals more that way!
      And amen to your miracle

  4. Hi dear this message just came through as I was fighting in the spiritual realm. I have neighbours who are practising witchcraft. They cast spells everyday and I am praying for them to stop to no avail.This is very sad because they have turned my daughter and mother against me. They cast spells of sickness and whenever I share this with my family they do not believe what I am telling them. Its life the whole street is under this evil woman’s instruction. She is like the boss of witches in my street.Thank you for information thou I needed it.God gave me an assignment to go and preach the word but have not been able to breathru or open a church yet.I am praying that God will open an opportunity even if it has to be in my own church so that I can do as commanded by him.I even feel that the attack is because I have not been doing what I was called to do

  5. I was sitting in my car in a very low place around 6 pm asking the Lord for confirmation that He’s still with me. I spoke to Him, I heard nothing but then the wind blew, I took notice. I thanked Him for the refreshing wind but continued to wait for Him to speak. I asked Him for a sign again and then I felt the wind. Living in sw Georgia it was refreshing and I thanked Him. Then I get this email at 7 pm and begin to read it… and at the same time I’m listening to Bethel Music “crash over me,” and hear the part that says “I hear Your voice on the wind.” I’d just like to say thank you for allowing God to use you. Tonight is especially special to me because I’ve experienced God in a new level, and He used you to confirm it. More than once these emails has saved me from giving up. Thank you and God bless you.

    1. Wow Alisha, soooo good! I love that song and know exactly what you mean.
      May you continue to be enriched in God’s Word and in faith

  6. THANK YOU JESUS FOR THIS POST..THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED AT THIS TIME OF MY LIFE AND NOW I WILL BE STRONG IN YOU AND HOLD ON TO YOUR PROMISE “I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU”.
