Much of life feels like preparation work as we are readied for the next big thing to happen. It’s important for us to see our need to be ready. So often I feel ill prepared for what awaits me, but each day is one step closer to it.
God is preparing us to receive. He alone knows the perfect timing and when to release us into the anointing He has planned. From our perspective it’s shrouded in mystery. We find waiting baffling, setbacks devastating and hold ups frustrating.
It takes a great deal of trust and faith to believe that in all things God is working for our good, especially if we rely only on what our senses are telling us. But as we sharpen our spiritual antennae, we begin to view things more from God’s wider perspective than our own limited one.

God has used it many times to teach me things that are also helpful to others. I’m sharing a prophetic prayer whisper God gave me that speaks hope into impatient souls. My hope and prayer is that it will bless you too.
Prayer whisper: Be ready
“I am sending a Holy fire that will flow through every area of your life, purifying and cleansing mind and body. All that has held you captive for so many years will be burnt away. All that has confined and constrained you from living joyfully and freely will be scorched into dust and ashes.
Be ready to receive the heat of My Presence warming your soul, casting out all that clings cold and dark in your mind and heart. I am coming with My refining fire to sift all that is not of Me, all that the enemy has stolen from you or brought upon your life.
Restoration is coming to My people. They will receive a double recompense for their loss. My Bride will walk worthy of her calling. I am readying her for the bridal feast to come. My Light will radiate from her in this hour of preparation.
As she hears My clarion call whispered to her heart, she will lift her head in eager anticipation. Sadness and discouragement will fall away as My people begin to see that I am at the door and they ready themselves to receive Me.
The days will still be challenging and there will be times when you will struggle to believe that I am healing, restoring and renewing you. I will never overlook, leave or forsake you.”

Amen, JOY! May we all be open to receiving His cleansing, purifying, holy fire.
Thank you, June. It’s a needful thing to receive but one we tend to want to shy away from, forgetting that the purifying and cleansing of God’s holy fire is also one of all-consuming Love. He burns away the dross, refines and renews us because of His love for us.
So encouraging Joy. Thank you for sharing this with us. So thankful for our tender Saviour, who refines, renews and brings us hope.
Thank you, Anita. I’m so pleased you found some words here to encourage your soul. Bless you for stopping by!
