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_

  1. God bless you Helen , your messages were right on target . IA Sister spoke to me yesterday about her struggles with pain on her spinal cord right through her legs. Having listened to her , I said to myself, “ I will seek the face of the Lord to know how she can get out of this , and I purpose in my heart to cry to God on her behalf.” I really want the Holy Spirit to give me answer to her challenges. I had the feeling that God would speak. Please remember her in prayers.
    Yesterday I had an awesome time with the Holy Spirit. I wanted to search on YouTube for a speaker I used to listen to many years ago , but I can’t remember his name. So I asked the Holy Spirit to remind me of his name . Not too long he reminded me . I said to him your are faithful always. Am longing to hear from him .
    God bless you Helen

    1. Hi Pastor Ibrahim, I’m praying with you now about the sister with the spinal cord issue, may she encounter the mercy and healing power of Jesus, and may you be released in words of wisdom grace and discernment to address the illness. I love that about the Holy Spirit reminding…I ask Him to do that too John 14:26

      1. Pastor Ibrahim Sillah

        Hello Helen , thank you very much for your words of encouragement and for lifting the Sister up in prayers.
        May God Bless you and family.

  2. Thanks so much Helen for your prophetic word, I’m so encouraged and believe the prophetic word that God released to me last year December is confirmed, Isaiah 42:9. See the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you, I believe the weariness is my former thing, new things : to be awakened and refreshed in my prophetic ministry, to have a fresh encounter with God and hear Him clearly. I have to finish the Great Commission before He comes, Matthew 28:19-20,please remember me in your prayers

  3. Hi Kago, amen to that, may you be refreshed, awakened and empowered with new vision in your prophetic and evangelistic ministry, in Jesus’ Name

  4. Amen!
    Hi Helen,thank you so much for this prophetic word and confirmation from the Lord about the Spiritual relocation and intimacy with Him. I’m really expecting this season of wonder that is coming… bless His Holy name.
    And may God continue to bless you and your family & increase you more and more in Jesus’ name.

    Can’t wait for this season of awe…

  5. Hi Helen. I am blessed to have a prophetic word such as this. My husband and I have entered the Samuel era. We are now living in awe and wonder of His glory. We have extreme favor with God and man. We have relocated spiritually and are now living in the promised land. Its amazing how you have prophesied the very things that has and is happening to us. We truly live in awe of Him. I love you Jesus. My source of life. Thank you Jesus
