The Spirit of the Lord has been impressing on my heart that He wants to do ‘More With Less’ in the lives of His people. This past season of pruning may have caused some to lose heart or misunderstand what God was up to in their circumstances and relationships, but the Lord is saying,
‘Take courage! I am going to do more with less so that you will know that it is by My hand that you have been saved. I have cut away only what was no longer needed in order to make your life more fruitful. It is by My power that you will accomplish that for which I have purposed to do in and through your life.
‘Do not look to the hand of man or mammon to support you. Instead, take My hand and allow Me to lead you the steep way, up into the mountain peaks. From these heights I will speak to you and show you those things that you could not see in the shadow of the valley of doubt that you are now passing out of.
Come alone with Me. Do not turn back in longing for the things that I have removed. I have stripped away only those things that were hindering your dependence on Me. Why do you think it a burden to be brought to a place where you now know I am your only hope? I purposefully placed desires within your heart for the fulfillment of impossible things. Remember I have spoken to you that what is impossible with man, is possible in Me. There is nothing in My plan for your life that you can not accomplish if you are willing to stake your life on My promises.
If you will dare to believe again, and keep on believing, you will see all that I have promised you come to fruition. Do not allow bitterness and unbelief to set in and poison the waters. The clean water of My Spirit must flow freely in and through you if you are to flourish in the land of promise I am bringing you into this year.
When you see that you are surrounded by enemies, and you know that you are outnumbered, it is good to recognize that you are too weak to fight alone. Turn to Me and I will give you courage. I will instruct you. I will give you the exact time and method that is to be used to lead you to sure victory. Your confident assurance and bold obedience will be a sign that I am with you in all things. Trust me and I will throw your enemies into confusion.
I have ordained your victory because you have given your life to Me and long to please Me in all that you do. I have purposefully crafted the promises I placed in your heart to be too lofty for you to even imagine you can see their fulfillment without My hand moving on your behalf. I long to be involved in every detail of your life. It is My desire that you seek Me out and speak to Me about everything that concerns you. If you can accomplish your dreams apart from Me, they have not been inspired by My Spirit that lives in you. Let your fear drive you deep into My heart. Spend ample time in My Presence to be refreshed and encouraged to believe.
It pleases Me that you have a passion to see My hand move miraculously in your circumstances. I will glorify Myself through your walk of faith. Cling to Me, knowing that My sovereign hand will guide you in all things.
Refuse to doubt what I have spoken because the odds are stacked against you. I am doing more with less. I am multiplying your little exponentially in this season if you surrender all that you have and all that you are for My plans to be fulfilled through you. There is nothing too hard for Me. Whatever you have in your hand, consecrate it to Me. Whatever you give to Me, I will multiply. Follow Me and I will lead you; I will give you the wisdom and understanding that you need each step of the way to accomplish those good works I have created in advance for you to do.

I declare this day that many who have been walking through trouble, or have been wandering in the valley of the shadow of death, are coming out on the other side. You are stronger, braver, richer, more beautiful, and better equipped to handle the next level assignment that is being released into your care in this season. Your authority in Christ is sure. What was sent to distract you and take you out has been used by the Maker to mold you and purify you for the noble purposes for which you were created.
Stand tall, adjust your crown. Look up; know that the help you have longed for is coming from the Lord this day. He has delivered your enemies into your hands. You will no longer toil in vain, but instead you will receive double for your trouble.
The doors that have shut in your face were for your protection. Those sources that dried up were to reroute you the the Source that never runs dry. Waves of blessing will be pulled in by the gravity of your faith in the goodness of God. The Lord’s sovereign hand is moving heavy in the spirit realm this month in your favor. Get into alignment with Him by determining to get your nourishment only from the pure Source of you Maker. Drink only from the river of life. Have nothing to do with dead things. Break away from everything that distracts or hinders your intimacy with Christ. Divine alignments will be made when you are heavy in the flow of His Spirit thought a heart that is continually grateful.
The old has been stripped away to make room for the new beginnings that you have been brought to this day. Use the keys of authority that you have been blessed with for God’s specific plan for your life; the key that will open every door of opportunity, the key that will open every door of influence, the key that will open every door of alignment, and the key that will open every door to the provision that you will need for your next level assignment that you are being elevated to in this season.
An abundance of spiritual power is being released to assist in your assignments fulfillment. The Lord is anointing you with the oil of gladness and you will be filled with a holy fire that burns away the dross of the heartache of past disappointments. The pruning may have been painful but the abundance of fruit that is coming forth will prove your faith has stood the test. Your doubts are dissipating, being evaporated in the brightness of the sun that is rising. Doubt and unbelief about the things that the Lord has promised will be eradicated as you discern the specific nature of the spiritual forces of darkness that were sent to steal from you the inheritance from your Father’s hand.
Supernatural discernment is rising among the people of God. Enemy plans are being revealed and specific battle and building plans are being sent forth by the hand of God through the angelic hosts to destroy evil and establish boundaries in the land that the Lord is giving into your hands this day.
This is a time of great deliverance and transition into greater fruitfulness than has been experienced so far this year for those that will be bold and courageous in their determination to grow up in Christ, and for those that refuse to settle in the land of indecision and double-mindedness. The double portion blessing of this season is not for the double minded.
Those that have put their hand to the plow and continue to look back will not be equip to war with this word and bring it into fruition. God is bringing to those that have fixed their eyes heavenward into a razor sharp future focus. He is giving big picture perspective into the specific purposes of peoples lives so that each step can be made intentionally and with confident assurance.
“I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
I caught myself saying, ‘How Bizarre’ at least four or five times within a matter of days recently and asked the Lord if there was something He was trying to convey to me through the- even more than typical- strange and unusual ways He was working in my life. His response to me was that He was using the experiences I was having to open my ears to what He was wanting to say to the body of Christ for the duration of what is left of the summer.
I’ve been fasting, taking notes, and keeping my ear tuned in to the secret place whispers of the King as He unfolded this word ‘Bizarre’ to me, explaining how it pertained to the body of Christ in this season.
Bizarre is described as something very strange or unusual, especially so as to cause interest or amusement.
I have had many visions of the mailroom of heaven filled with packages that are ready to be sent forth to the recipients that have aligned their lives with heaven through a deep consecration and surrender in order to be used for the purposes of God here in the earth during this exciting time of revival that we are entering into.
I see a light and jovial atmosphere in this room of presents from the Lord. Angels are laughing, lighthearted and with great anticipation of the surprise that these gifts from God are going to bring into the lives of those that are going to be caught up in something beyond their typical, life as usual routines, as they open their assignments, are introduced to new connections, and are provisioned in outlandish and unprecedented ways.
I hear the Lord say that what He has for many in this hour is ‘Newsworthy.’ There will be specific pathways and airways on the mountain of media that are being cleared of darkness and given over to the prepared ones with innovative ideas in business, entertainment and ministry to be carried around the world. There are packages addressed to, “My Kingdom Pioneers.’ Convention will be thrown out the window in favor of the personalized, fresh off the heavenly presses, strategic plans.
God is calling on water-walking believers to get out of the boat and make large investments to bring the Kingdom of God to the earth by living out of the secret place revelation and deepest place desires that God has placed within the hearts of His faithful ones.
There has been a separating out for many people and a desert season of being hidden with the Lord. But through this summer there will be a slew of Kingdom alignments for those that have walked away from dead or fruitless relationships in this last season in order to go forward with the Lord. Some God ordained relationships that have been surrendered will begin to flourish under the care of the Holy Spirit and the stay out of God’s way approach to those that have been interceding. There will be a ten to hundred fold return in relationships. Kingdom minded people will be moving forward together in community to accomplish God’s Kingdom Purposes. Heart to heart connections will be introduced through peculiar means that will have the mark of divinity all over them.
Those that have walked away from or severed unhealthy soul ties, by the leading of the Spirit, will be receiving bothers and sisters in Christ into their lives that will carry a ‘eternity connection anointing’ on them. The intimacy will be immediate, to the point of being unsettling. Be at peace. Don’t allow the intensity of the relationship connections to stir up old fears of abandonment. Hold everyone lightly with a joyful heart and leave your expectations for outcomes in Christ’s capable hands. These alignments are for God’s purposes to manifest. Keep this front and center on your mind and you will be freed from the concern of the risks associated with loving well.
Do not consult the opinions of those that are not walking with the Lord as to what is happening. Do not be alarmed. Be lighthearted and enjoy the unique ways that the Lord is leading you and revealing His heart and will for how He wants you to make intentional decisions by faith in the coming weeks.
In order for your packages to be received, you must be willing to not have all of the details figured out ahead of time. God’s strategy in this season is to walk by the Spirit and be led forth by His Word and the signs and wonders that will be lighting up the path of those that are willing to move at the impulse of His love and the direction of His word.
Radical obedience, fearless decision making, and breaking with those things that are a part of the status quo will open you up to the BIZARRE assignments that will bring with them a BIZZARE anointing to carry them out. Get ready to laugh, and to laugh hard. The bizarre assignments are meant not just for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom but for the merriment of God’s people. Holy laughter will help alleviate the unsettling emotions tied to doing things as you have never done them before.
The Lord is calling many out of bondage to negative or sinful habits, mindsets and motives of past seasons. Get ready for a mass deliverance! Ancient wounds that have held you and your loved ones back, stubbornly resisting intercession and the discipline of the Lord, causing many to grow weary in their faith, are going to be blasted loose as we enter August, the month of BIZARRE deliverances.
The Lord has impressed strongly on my heart that August is to be a month of joy and enjoyment. The positive faith of the people of God will move mountains. This is not the time to second guess every decision made from the deep place of the spirit within you. A miracle working power is available that will break all logic. There is an extra-ordinary anointing that will flow into a peculiar people that will be bold and dare to step out on the word of the Lord.
Decide today that you will begin to look at every unexplainable event or circumstance with eyes of faith and absolute certainty in God’s goodness, confident that God is orchestrating events to bring about an outcome that will cause many to see His glory and favor in your life.
I see a vision of a throng of people fully embracing their unique calls this summer. Gifts and talents that have laid dormant because of schedules, people believing that it was impractical to invest time and energy into, are going to be resurrected in kooky ways by the Lord. Keep your eyes open for how He will be not only granting permission to delve into those quirky interests you have thought frivolous, but He will in many cases be dropping strategy for using your unique abilities for Kingdom purposes.
Bizarre opportunities are on the horizon for many people that have refused to follow the desires of their flesh but instead held fast to the true path that leads to life. This summer will be marked by elevation into new realms of authority that can come only from the hand of God’s favor being made evident in your life.
There is also a warning in this word. Fear, pride and giving continually into the lusts of the flesh will keep people locked in a holding pattern where the sameness of the battle and the sameness of the assignment will block the NEW life from entering in to break the pattern. Renounce and repent. Surrender and refuse to serve your flesh but determine only to serve God and the purposes He has for your life.
Gods will, God’s way, and God’s timing will bring about a God sized breakthrough. Unusual travel plans will emerge as from the Lord for some. Abrupt change of plans will lead others into unusual favor with the right people at the right time. Where there were blank spots our question marks in other plans, God will be sending BIZARRE answers that will be clearly uniquely designed to wow you with His goodness.
Dare to embrace the bizarre and lay aside all preconceived ideas about how God is going to work in and through your life. Creativity is going to flow flow flow. Step out and create using the strange and unusual patterns that the Lord is sending you in night dreams, day visions, impressions and through every imaginable BIZARRE way that the Lord so choses to speak to you. Let God completely out of your box. Verbalize to Him your willingness to give Him total freedom to speak and operate in your life however He sees fit. Determine you will trust in His goodness with more tenacity than you ever have before.
WATCH HIM MOVE IN THE MOST BIZARRE WAYS IMAGINABLE! You will laugh at how masterfully He will design your days, with your God given quirks very personally in mind. Prepare to come off the shelf and be used for His glory. He will do it!
