There is a word of life going out!
The Holy Spirit is breathing resurrection power into God’s people.

If this causes your heart to lift, hear your Father say, “I am turning your limitations into expectations!”

That which has tried to restrict you, will no longer have power over you.

You realize instead, that God’s power is overshadowing you.

The One God Helps

Your Weakness is the Resting Place of God's PowerJesus stands outside of the tomb of His friend Lazarus.
He weeps, and then, looking up, prays to His Father.
Then, He cries out in a loud voice, “Lazarus come out!” (John 11:41-43)

Lazarus’ name means, “whom God helps” (Strong’s G2976).

Today, know that you are the one God helps!
Your life is filled with purpose, far beyond that which you can see.
As Lazarus did, you are rising, and your life will be a sign, seen by many—giving glory to Jesus.

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.”
(Psalm 40:2-3 NIV)

“Beloved, Come Forth!”

Jesus stands outside our hiding places, our enclosed spaces of limitation and loss. And He declares, “I am the Author of life. I am the Resurrection and the Life.”

Now, the One who is life speaks.
Jesus calls you by name.
Today, hear His cry, issued forth from his Throne. “Beloved, come forth!”

“I am here—right now—to give you life!”
Now, at His word, God’s power is released.

That which tried to hold you back, is powerless against your Deliverer, Jesus.

“He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.” (Psalm 18:16, NKJV)

The Landing Strip of Grace

Know that your limitations are not a contradiction to the call of God. Your personal weakness is not the cancellation of grace; it is the landing strip of grace.

In fact, the Bible says that your weakness is the resting place of God’s power.
God’s power is overshadowing you!

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)

So if today, you feel as though you are without options—as though you have been left out, shut in, or closed off in some way—your Help is here.

You are not without options.
Sin doesn’t disqualify you, when the blood of Jesus covers you.

The story of Lazarus can be your testimony too.
You are the one God helps.

The Truth that Sets You Free

In the chapter immediately preceding Lazarus’ story, Jesus says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10 NKJV)

“…to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.”
It’s the clue to a pattern—the enemy repeatedly tells us, that our weakness will lead to the death of something. He whispers:
That project—you won’t finish it.
That ministry, that relationship (or something else)—it won’t last.
Or, that calling won’t come to pass.

But Jesus says, “I have come to give you life and life abundantly.”
Hear Him declare over you, “I am the resurrection and the life.”

The Spirit who is in you, is greater than that which has tried to stifle you.

This is the truth that sets you free.
Those old grave clothes, those limitations, are being loosed off you.

The Dawning in Your Heart

A new realization of God’s personal love for you is dawning in your heart.
For in the story of Lazarus, you are looking into the mirror of God’s Word.
Suddenly, you see it—that you are the one God helps.

“Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” (John 11:43-44, NKJV)

  1. Yes, after a long season of spiritual warfare and losses, I realize I have entered a season of rest and Gods presence. “ A new realization of God’s personal love for you is dawning in your heart.” I realize this new dawning and I am so thankful for this. God is putting in my heart a desire to move and have a new beginning. Please pray for permissions, provisions, and the transitions.

    1. Yes it is that awareness of His personal love for us that gives us the courage, Rachel! May that ever increase for you, and I pray your pathway opens up with all that you need and the wisdom and clarity to run with it. <3

  2. HalleluYah! Thank you Father in the name of Yeshua. I know you are speaking to me, and I receive it and declare it so done. May the Lord continue to bless you and the ministry He has entrusted you with.

  3. I have been praying for my wife to come to Jesus. She is lost and needs divine direction. Her name is Destiny. Please pray for her and for our marriage which has been broken since we started last year. Thank you.

    1. Hi Tommy, I’m sorry to hear of the pain you’ve experienced. Father, I pray your fresh wind would blow on this marriage and on Destiny’s life. May she know she is loved by You, known by You, destined by you, free in You. Lord, release the new season for this couple and the resources, in every way, that they need to move forward, in Jesus’ Name

      14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Eph 4:14-19)

      1. Hi Brethren Tommy
        I join you in prayer for your wife’s salvation for we all know that which we ask in Jesus’ name is already granted. He promised to answer us His children before they open their mouth and fulfil ALL our needs (Isaiah 65:24). All of us were created by Him and we are the Word that was there in the beginning (Destiny) (1 John 1:1-3; Romans 8:28). Your wife is not lost but God is working miracles behind the scenes through grace, which also pulled us from the world. Names have a great spiritual significance and your wife carries one with a Godly Destiny. You are called to be the Light and that many shall be served. Go before the Lord and prophesy good things and destiny over your wife and your prayer of faith shall be answered. You are a prophet (Job 22:28) use every word to proclaim salvation over your wife and household and He shall give you a testimony. It is well Brethren. Shalom

  4. Dear Helen,
    I’m very humbled by the accurate prophetic word shared as it speaks deeply into my life.
    The forces of darkness have tried to hold me back in all areas of my life but I know now that Jesus power is resting over me, Jesus grace is sufficient for me and his power is made perfect in my weakness.
    May Jesus power overshadow me as I’m the one God helps in Jesus mighty name I pray and believe.
    Thank you and may God abundantly bless you.

    1. Yes amen to that, Tracy. May you step out with assurance that the turning of the page has taken place, you are in the new place of freedom Jesus has made the way for you to have.

  5. Amen! I thank the Lord for a timely message we received: highly uplifting and reaasuring know that our weaknesses are landing grounds for His All Time grace. It reminds us that when it comes to demonic attacks and tribulations we are not greater than our Master Jesus who has gone before us and granted us Victory (John 15:20). So pretty much the naked lie in every setback is the defeated plan of Satan to detail our callings. Jesus Christ had a unique way to deal with this kind of noise: get behind me satan (Mark 8:33). We need not give audience to satan’s distractions but much on to His promises just as we are for our weaknesses have become strength through His abundant grace. When we take these bold steps of faith Jesus shows up mightily at very strategic points in our destiny journeys. Shalom

    1. That’s so good a reminder Simon,
      “Get behind me Satan!”
      Praise God, we’re the head and not the tail. above and not beneath (Deut 28:13), in Christ.
