An Interlude of Wonder (and Prophetic signs) is Here

To wonder is to marvel; to be amazed and astounded.
To wonder, is to pause as you contemplate something (or someone) that is unlike anything you’ve seen before.
Wonder is more than a “wow”—wonder is awe.

And right now, we have moved into an interlude of wonder.

An Interlude of Wonder

God is Turning Weariness to WonderAn interlude is “a short period when a situation or activity is different from what comes before and after it”. [1]

We are entering a season of wonder, in which the Holy Spirit is moving in ways that are new to our generation.

  • There is an increase in prophetic signs
  • Angelic activity is becoming more noticeable
  • The Kingdom of God is breaking out

And while in recent decades, we have had encouragement in prophetic ministry, and at times, excitement—we are entering an interlude characterized by wonder.

And this season of wonder will lead to the “fear of the Lord”. [2]
For a time is coming when hearts will fall at His feet.

Eli Settled in his “Usual Place”

In the story of when young Samuel first heard God’s voice, we read,
“And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see.”
(I Samuel 3:2 NKJV)

The NIV reads that the priest Eli “was lying down in his usual place”.

And as I wrote last year, this note in the story struck me. I felt the Holy Spirit provoking me with an alert—a warning—
that many of us who have been around for a long time in the prophetic, are in danger of becoming like Eli. [2]

The ageing priest was losing his eyesight; he was lying down, being at rest in his usual place.
He was stuck in his familiar way of doing things.
Asleep in his comfort zone.

If it feels as though a “sameness” has crept into your journey with God lately, He has a fresh encounter for you.

Today, I believe God is saying, “Pay attention! My favor is towards you.
I have more for you, than you are aware of or expect.”

You are free to emerge; to get out of the mold and into the more of what God has for you.

From Weariness to Wonder

The boy Samuel, in the meantime, lay down to sleep, but was surprised instead, by an encounter with God.

You may have felt weary, or even worn out. But God is turning your weariness into wonder.

A Samuel anointing is here. There is a fresh encounter with the voice of God, and it’s available for all of us, young and old.

It’s time for us to get out of our “usual place” and seek the intimate Presence of our Lord.

Spiritual Relocation

A word of spiritual relocation has been sent from Heaven!
Those of us who are prophetic seers, are about to be awakened and refreshed.

Remember, the name “Samuel’” means “heard of God”, So, be hungry; ask for a fresh encounter with Him.

Be open to discover new ways of hearing God’s voice and responding to the Holy Spirit.

For the Samuel era is here.
And your Father, Who loves you, has a fresh encounter for you to walk in.

Whilst this is an interlude, and different to what has been before, it is also a prelude.
A prelude is “something that comes before a more important event or action that introduces or prepares for it”, see_

    Wow this is spot on. I have been sick for like 3 weeks and still have to work. So weary is true being tired. But in this weariness God has been speaking louder and definitely using me in the market place to pray, heal and send a prayer to heal. I’ve never encountered His voice so loud. On my Facebook page He tells me to post Prophetic things to come and they come. It’s shocking me as well. Some are Political, some are about the weather ( earthquakes etc) and some are just about what’s gonna happen in the market place. In the past I would drown it out but not this season. This season He is refreshing and sending more power. This truly is an amazing season for not just Prophets but who ever is willing. Like today he told me in the morning before work I will have to pray for a women that I work with in the market place. So I didn’t know if I was going to see her or not and just like he said she showed up, which is rare. Then as I was talking to her he revealed what to pray with her about. She told me and now I’m waiting for the praise report. Especially since she wanted me to pray for her sister who has Parkinson’s disease. The women is not a believer at all. I believe He is going to heal her sister. Thank you for your emails and blog. God bless you

    1. Hi Christopher, I’m praying for you right now, for healing to be completely released in your body, in Jesus! Name. May the testimonies continue to gather and grow as you respond to the move of the Holy Spirit in your life

  2. Please if you all could kindly think of me in your quiet times. I hear the voice of the Holy Spirit from time to time but right now I’m going thru a season of betrayal and I guess that has somewhat hindered me from hearing his voice. I’m so tired and weary ?

    1. Hi Arere, I’m sorry to hear you have been through such a tough time. I’m praying for you now, that you will be rested and soaked in God’s love for you, and able to hear His still small whispers, especially through His Word

  3. Thank you Helen, I feel a great spirit of change and wonder is here and welcoming it to the full. Last year’s issues still have to be put to bed and moved on though. Bring it on Lord! No weapon forged against me shall prosper!

  4. Hi Helen

    Thanks for such an encouraging word….I so needed to hear this now…Lord knows how hard it is, being betrayed people I trusted… it hurts.

    1. sorry to hear that, Camilla. I pray you will have some healing encounters with Father God and His Word.
      I turn to the Message in these times, words like this. I pray this (knowing God as your unshakeable rock) is your resting place
      1-2 God, the one and only—
      I’ll wait as long as he says.
      Everything I need comes from him,
      so why not?
      He’s solid rock under my feet,
      breathing room for my soul,
      An impregnable castle:
      I’m set for life. (Ps 62:1-2, MSG)

  5. Thanks i have started hearing Gods voice again because before it ceased but now i am getting a new revelations of something that wants to happen in the future. But i want to hear more of God voice clearly and be more able to see in the heavenly realms of what God is doing .

    1. amen, He is so faithful to reveal more as we pursue Him, and may it be for you, Obinna and even more so, with all the wisdom and discernment of application, in Jesus’ Name

      1. Praise king Jesus,
        Thank you for the timely prophetic word as I have been in season of spiritual rest and I’m waiting for a new awakening and more refreshing season.i receive the spiritual relocation in Jesus mighty name as God turns this weariness into wonder.
        Blessings Helen

  6. Hi Helen.
    Always, thanks for the God’s wonderful work of encouragement. Some of us who follow your messages from the Almighty God really feel blessed.
    Of late God has vividly spoken to me in a more vibrant way. I feel His real presence and have prophicied and prayed for people and they have back with testimonies. I have been fasting and praying for the last 3 days and yesterday I encountered God for like 30 mins. But each like 15 mins He would call me back in His presence for like 3 times. It was awesome. I would obey each time He called me aside.
    So, thanks Helen. I am experiencing God’s wonder. Am blessed and do everyone who hears the voice God and responds immediately.
    God bless you all.

    1. I love that testimony, Geoffrey. There is nothing like those moments of encountering God.
      Intimacy – and encountering Him in Scripture – this is where the real gold is to be found
