As I was praying, I heard the words “assessment” and “plumb line”.  

I sense that this is a season of re-adjustment and presenting ourselves to the Holy Spirit to shine His light into
every area of our lives for fine-tuning and polishing.

This is a time of coming aside to wait on the Lord, a time of assessment
to measure up to the plumb line of His Word in order for our lives and
ministries to be brought in alignment with God’s pre-ordained purposes.   
It is a time to discern, to get rid of any clutter of contradicting points of
view that defile your mind and conscience and be re-aligned according
to God’s orders.

For a business to grow and flourish there is a constant re-assessment
to sift out every-thing that does not work together for advancement.  

Likewise, for those in ministry, do not think it strange if you are suddenly
brought aside, almost as if interrupted in mid-stream, to a place where you
can gain divine  perspective.   Do not strive to be busy in this place, since
this is the time for dry-dock inspection and cleaning, where the barnacles
that have accumulated around the keel can be scraped off and the
“baggage” that have been undetected below the water level can be
exposed and stripped off.  Do not allow distractions.  Choose times of

Inspect your relationships.  See to it that there is no ought, unforgiveness
or unresolved issue that can hamper your progress.  Call them into the
light and when they do surface, humble yourself and offer the ministry of
reconciliation to man and to God.  Make sure that your connections are
aligned by the Holy Spirit and not by the flesh.  Know who God has placed
alongside, above and under you in Godly order and align your heart in
submissive servant-hood, giving honor to whom honor is due, learning to
esteem highly these gifts that God has put in your life, nurturing your
relationships with agape love, sowing blessing into them.

Take time to become silent on the inside, waiting on the Lord in worship in
order to hear His heart for your next move.  Do not allow any anxious
thought to creep in, but trustfully wait on Him and do not be in a hurry to move forward.

Remember God’s ways in your life and heed the sure word of prophecy that shines like a lamp in a dark place and
lights up your path.  It is in His Presence that the light is brightest and our understanding opens up when our
hearts are unencumbered.  Do not try and figure out your destiny in your own strength; it only brings confusion.
Quiet your heart by putting your trust fully in Him to unfold your destiny, bringing mind, heart and mouth in
agreement with His “rhema” Word.

It is of utmost importance now to wait in that intimate intertwining with the Holy Spirit until you hear His instruction
and that stirring comes on the inside that brings the clarity of seeing and discerning your next move.  Hasty
decisions will cause you to flounder, but patience in the waiting-room of God will bring the blessing of being filled
up with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; to walk a walk worthy of and pleasing
to the Lord, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.

At the same time we will be strengthened by the Spirit in the inner man with the joy of sure-footedness as we wait
for His Presence to go before us in His timing and with His plan to come into the fullness of our inheritance in
Christ and
walking in the works which He has preordained for us to
walk in.  

Be polished to shine His glory and to be a glory dispenser in whatever place you find yourself by His orders!

Photo taken in Kentucky

Cara Winship sent this out and it is
called: "God's hands". "I took this
picture on Hwy 30, traveling to
London, KY. It has given me strength
in the times of trouble. I feel I should
share it with the rest of the world. I
hope it is an inspiration to you.  It just
goes to show what we already
know....  We have a God and he's
watching over us.
I e-mailed this picture to News Chanel
36.  I was contacted by Meteorologist
John James. He said that this picture
of the sky is showing up, in all states,
around the world.  He wanted to know
where I was from and where I took it.  
He saw a similar picture taken in
Texas.  He said this is amazing to him!"
