Hear God Say, ‘I am Turning Overwhelm Into Overflow’

Today, I believe God is ministering to those who have been working hard, or have faced trials over an extended period.

You may be wondering how you are going to get everything finished.

You may face challenges of faith.

Hear your Father say, ‘I am turning the overwhelm into overflow!


Sometimes, a Miracle is Followed by a Trial

Matthew records a time the disciples had been busy with a lot of service and ministry (see Matt 14:13-36).

  • They had participated in the miracle of feeding thousands supernaturally, but there had been a lot of hard work

And then, Jesus pressed them to take their boat back across the lake.

It was dark. It was late. They were tired. And they were heading right into a storm.

We read that the boat was being buffeted about by the waves. And if you can relate to that in some way today, know this:

Jesus is still your answer. And your hope in Him is well placed.


At the End of Your Strength is New Hope

As Jesus’ first disciples discovered, the life of faith is not always easy.

  • And even the privilege of serving Him can bring us to the end of our strength

If, like the disciples, you find yourself engaged in a struggle you never expected, know that Jesus is in control!

Your dependence upon Him is going to result in praise.


In the Moment You Can’t See, Jesus is There

The disciples cried out in fear when they saw Jesus walking to them on the water.

Sometimes, the Lord allows us to be in a space of time where we are operating in the dark.

 Jesus is visiting us, but our vision of Him is distorted by the storm.

For a time as our faith is tested, we feel unsafe and vulnerable.

  • We can’t see clearly, but He has a plan. One that will take us to the other side and give glory to Him!

When Jesus entered the boat, the wind calmed.

The disciples’ cries of fear turned to exclamations of worship.

Today, call on Jesus.

Jesus is turning your overwhelm into overflow. He is transforming worry into worship.


A Move of God Awaits You

The disciples’ boat safely landed on the other side, where they could rest.

  • And they were about to experience a powerful move of God bringing an overflow of healing to many

Whatever is taking place in your world, you can trust Jesus to safely bring you to your destination.

He is your Deliverer in the storm. And He is Lord of the wind and waves.

He is full of grace.

Lift up your eyes, for your King is here—and great things are up ahead.


Prayer and Declaration

Jesus, I bring every care and pressure to You. And I call out to You, both for myself and for others who are in the midst of a buffeting and trial.

Right now, I declare to the wind and the waves, be stilled in Jesus’ Name! All oppression and pressure must go. Every conflict must be turned back. Darkness, be rolled away. I declare my God is faithful. He is at work, fulfilling all of His promises.

Lord, I choose to trust You for what I don’t understand with my natural mind. You are Lord of my life and my circumstances. I choose to turn my heart to You in worship. I receive your fresh anointing now, in Jesus’ Name.’


I’ve just shared a Testimony on the School of Intimacy and Prayer

Last week, I recorded some testimonies about a recent move of God in our lives, and I’m excited to share these with you! I’ve uploaded these in the section, ‘Angels, Signs and Encounters’.

The first series of topics is available on the Enliven School of Intimacy and Prayer, and I extend you a warm welcome to join me.

Currently on the Prayer School are self-paced video lessons on:

  • Intimacy with the Holy Spirit
  • Introducing Prophetic Prayer
  • Praying the Mysteries of Heaven
  • The Gift and Ministry of Prophetic Intercession
  • Angels, Signs and Encounters

Also included are bonus e-Books and downloadable PDFs and worksheets.

During January and February I will be adding more lessons on: intimacy with the Holy Spirit, the prayer of travail, angelic intervention, the power (and how to’s) of weighing up encounters and prophetic insights received in prayer.

You can find out more or enroll in the School of Intimacy and Prayer here. Begin with me at the special price or view all online courses, including the Prophetic School here.

    Thank You Helen!!! for your obedience, your love, your passion and desire to teach and be a mentor to soooo many including myself who are just wanting guidance to grow in this Magnificent gift of prophesy that God has given for His Glory. I was just praying this week that the Lord would help me find a mentor to help guide me and help me grow in maturing in my gift of prophesy. I believe he lead me to YOU and your blog site for a purpose.

    The article I received and read today speaks to my heart. This 2018 year has been full of a lot of trials and tribulations and pressure for me but the Lord continues to see me through. The end of the year is near and most overwhelming for me because I have to take an exam that I have already failed twice to move forward into my destiny and calling. As I go a third time I am holding on to my faith and promises I know the Lord has given me, that I will pass my exam and that this year can be closed. So that in 2019 I can begin to fully operate in the purpose that God has for my life. I thank you for your encouraging words and your wisdom may the Lord Jesus Christ continue to elevate you.

    Thank you for this word Helen. It was so timely and encouraging for me in an overwhelming time. I am believing I will come through to the other side and experience the move of God. So appreciate your ministry and pray that God blesses you as you bless the body of Christ.

    Helen, I relate to every line of this word. I read it multiple times to let it sink in and very thoughtfully through the declaration and prayer – and will need to do it many more times. I praise God for your (and His) encouragement. It’s hard to hear the pat advice and correction that so many give who have not done enough work to get tired or attacked by the enemy. It’s so refreshing to receive encouragement from someone who gets it. Thank you for being faithful to position yourself to hear from the Lord to minister to His body! I don’t often find time to respond to your words, but I am always greatly encouraged by them. And they’re always right on time and exactly on point! Thank you so much for your faithfulness! I greatly appreciate your prayers and teaching! May God overflow on YOU on your home ! Joyous Noel! 🙂
