Text on Black says Divine Orchestration, God is working behind the scenesHave you been facing challenges and uncertainty? The Lord wants you to know that as you have put your trust in Him, the Holy Spirit is at work.
And even now, Divine orchestration is taking place.

It’s a biblical principle that Paul describes this way:
“…we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Rom 8:28, NKJV)


What is Divine Orchestration?

Divine orchestration refers to God working in the background—in the unseen realm—to bring about His purposes on earth in response to prayer. [1]

Hear God say, “Regardless of what it looks like right now, I am working within the scenes, and I am moving behind the scenes.”

What an amazing truth—that the One who is the great conductor of the universe knows what you are facing right now.
And He is extending His mercy and power towards you.


A Prophetic Dream About a Train Station

A couple of years ago, I dreamed I was in a crowded train station, where people were milling around. It was confusing and chaotic.

  • A train station can represent a time of waiting or transition—or a felt need to get back on track!

And no wonder, for I received the dream early in the pandemic when we—along with so many globally—were in lockdown. So, the following day, as we worshiped with our church online, I remembered the dream and asked the Lord about it.

What a surprise I had!
Suddenly in a vision, I saw a train carriage stop directly in front of me, with the door open. As though in a movie, it “popped” out of the frame, completely still, and Jesus was in the carriage.  He was leaning forward, His arm outstretched so that He could help me on board. [2]

I knew that time had stopped and within that timeframe, God was moving—and His angels were at work!

Oh, glory! It gave me reassurance, especially as it was so vivid and the sense of Jesus being there was so real.
It was an “I’ve got this” message from God.


God is at Work in Divine Orchestration

See Jesus extending His hand to you right now.
The One who loves you dwells in the eternal realm and He already knows the future. In fact, He occupies it and is neither frustrated by time nor hampered by it—for He operates both inside and outside of time.

God is constantly working on your behalf, and no issue is beyond your Father’s reach (Ps 139).
Plus, He is the Master of synchronization and timing. What we see as a miraculous “coincidence”, is actually our Father at work.

The time comes when God reveals what He has been up to all along. And we are in awe as He moves in His power to supply what we need.


Divine Orchestration is at Work When Supply is Limited

We see a great example of this in Jacob’s story:
Jacob and his family lived in Canaan at a time when the region was in a devastating drought. And their supply of grain was not getting replenished by what they could grow.

But little did Jacob know that in the midst of crisis, Divine orchestration was at work!
And that Joseph—the son Jacob thought he had lost forever—was in Egypt, ruling the land.

Meanwhile, Joseph was amassing vast quantities of grain on behalf of Pharaoh.
“Joseph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he stopped counting, for it was immeasurable.” (Gen 41:49)

What a contrast—even though Jacob didn’t realize it and couldn’t see it, this abundance of provision was already available to him. It was there, prepared, and waiting!


The Language He Spoke

So God had already set aside what Jacob needed. Yet all Jacob could see was the limitation in front of him—the dwindling grain supply for his household.

“And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the grain which they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, “Go back, buy us a little food.” (Gen 43:2)

  • “A little food” That word translated as “little” in Hebrew (Strong’s H4592), also means small, hardly, or of little worth.

And that was Jacob’s expectation! It was all he could see; it was the language he spoke.
“Purchase just enough to get by—for now.”


Divine Orchestration: “I Will Enlarge the Ground Under You”

Today, whatever contradiction confronts you—be assured that as He did for Jacob, God already has a portion set aside for you!

Joseph later explained, “…God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.” (Gen 45:7)
So God was at work orchestrating the answer before the problem even began!

Today, hear your Father say, “My beloved child, I am working all things together in your life.
Even when confronted with what appears to be a limiting factor, you can be assured that it does not restrict Me. It can never prevent My action on your behalf.”

“Dear one, come and see what I see. Step into My Word and I will show you what I have made available to you. As you take one tiny step, I will enlarge the ground under you.
Even while you wait and wonder, I am at work.
And together, we will not be late—we will be right on time.”


Notes:
[1] Google search “Define orchestration” accessed 6th Oct 22
the planning or coordination of the elements of a situation to produce a desired effect, especially surreptitiously.

[2] When I describe a vision, it’s usually a vivid impression in my mind’s eye accompanied by a strong sense of God’s Presence—and not an “open” (physical) vision. I believe all prophetic words, encounters, and visions should be compatible with Scripture and need to be weighed up—if you’d like to know more see 8 Ways to Grow In Prophetic Visions and Pictures.

    1. God bless you for the message and the encouraging word of God. He who has began this good work will bring it to a perfect completion. Amen

  1. Dear Helen
    Thanks for your timely Prophetic Word. I have been experiencing financial wilderness for a long time. But I trust that God is doing something in the background. I have perceived that I have a Divine Calling in Prophetic Intercessory Ministry. I do not know whether the long term financial wilderness is as a result of my lack of response to the Calling Or is it that God has been working things for my good, and the right time has come. Please give more insight in the matter as you are led by the Holy Spirit.

    Risper

    1. Hi Risper, I can’t give personal counsel about reasons for financial wilderness (best for local pastors or leaders who know you to give this kind of advice) but I’m praying for you now for the turnaround and can encourage you in the prophetic intercessory ministry. There is teaching to encourage you on the blog, in the prayer course, or on the YouTube channel. Start here: https://www.enlivenpublishing.com/2016/05/10/17-signs-you-may-be-a-prophetic-intercessor/

      1. Dear Helen
        Thank you for the prophetic word it connects with what I’m going through I’m trusting God for healing for me and my unborn child and since last night I felt the need to give up cause there’s no sign that God hear my prayer,but God just confirms through you that’s His at work in my situation and the devil will be put to shame like always.im blessed to have come across this email today GOD BLESS YOU

        1. Hi Janine, I’m praying for you both right now,
          thank You Father for healing and breakthrough, in Jesus’ Name

          also encourage anyone who sees this to join in prayer for Janine

      2. Victor Akintunde

        Thank you for the message you sent me ma, it so coincidental that your prophetic message to me on Email synchronised to my current situation and challenges I am experiencing, although I sense a calling into ministry but I believe this is my waiting season, the lord seems to be building me for my future assignment.

        Thank you so much ma, I still want more spirit filled message from you.

  2. Hi Helen I hope you can help me with this dream I had please. I was in my kitchen and had half a jar of honey with the lid on, but when I took the lid off it overflowed the jar in abundance. I keep seeing it but not sure if it’s meaning

    1. Not sure if I’m allowed to do this here, but ask the Lord if you have put any limitations on Him or Yourself, and then verbally take them off. A lid you, yourself took off means you can remove it, and have the abundance God wants you to have 🙂

        1. Recently myself and a friend were to go North on a missionary trip. Doors opened for accommodation etc. However, my friend who was to provide car and share the driving was unable to proceed for various reasons.

          It left me with no impetus and stuck at home with seemingly nothing to do. The shock and disappointment were very real and strong.

          God showed me a picture of the church in the bible in Paul’s writings as being like a stage play with the church being in the light and the rest of the bible being like a background panorama. Essential for the whole production.

      1. Hi Heather and Helen thank you so much for your reply’s.

        I’ve read your post Heather I hope you don’t mind but myself and my other half feel the same way and have been feeling that our God is leading us as He is you as well. We see so many hurting and looking in the wrong places for love and our God can give them the live and true peace and healing they are looking for and we will be praying for you and your husband that He opens the doors no man can shut and leads you both forward in our Gods work of salvation as we know this works needs our God and as we are told in the Word the fields are ripe for harvest but the workers are few and I hope that both if us can help to reap the harvest for our God in both our countries

          1. none needed Vince! (if I’ve been quiet it’s because of our upside-down clock here in Australia 🙂

    2. Hi Vince, I can’t believe you shared this! We were sharing our story about honey jars a couple of days ago in a church we ministered at (which is when I gave this message about Divine orchestration).
      The honey jars story is a long one, to me the honey represents healing, God’s Presence, Word, provision, promise (Promised Land = Land of milk and honey) and so on. I agree with Heather’s reflection on this

    3. Wisdom Kofi Ahiaku

      Hello Helen good to hear from you on this prophecy. I am a local church pastor in North of Ghana, dominated by Muslims. The way I thought things would work out for me, l am not getting the results. My expectation of the kind of growth l want to see is not forth coming. Sometimes I question God if He is at work with me. But now I know that Divine orchestration is at work for me. I believe that God is working things behind the scenes for me which I can’t see now. I am waiting patiently for the appointed time.

  3. Dear Helen,
    As I read this, I’m feeling the Lord’s Presence strongly. So much peace. To be prepared and to help others in need in the times to come is strong on me and my husband’s heart, but it seems that progress is slow with any preparations. Seeing this Word gives us understanding, His timing is perfect and he will multiply whatever we have. We are pretty hidden, no loud ministries, no big accomplishments, but we desire to help others to not have to suffer in times to come. Maybe this is our calling? Thank you for sharing this word and your heart for others. You are a blessing.

    1. As I read your comment Heather I am reminded of Joseph’s work – he stored up grain during all those years of plenty, before there was any felt need by people – no demand was placed on those great storehouses during those years, even when they were overflowing! I think we have these hidden times (I can relate) and we feel as though we are waiting or being sifted, but in fact the Lord is filling our storehouses to overflowing!
      In times to come, those (like you both) who are in the “Joseph Company” (gifted in stewardship in the things of God) will enrich many.

  4. Amen I thank you woman of God for sharing this with us , it is always a blessing to hear,see and feel when the Lord Speaks through His servants.

  5. Brilliant, and so helpful. I love the sense of the Divine Orchestration, this agrees with what the Spirit has been putting in me, and it reminds me of Abraham’s posture – ‘against all hope Abraham believed’! Like someone above, because of its similarity, the sense of a Divine Orchestration led me to think of a Divine Orchestra, where the worship is so well timed, excellently played and gives all honour up to our God.
    Thank you Helen, much appreciated

    1. Great to hear from you Sashi! And I love that. When I was studying this topic and looked up the dictionary, the word orchestration has to do with putting together musical arrangements as well. I love to see this thought and the reminder of Abraham
