Prophetic Word: The Lord Says ‘Watch for the New and Unusual Graces’

by | Oct 20, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

As I was spending time with the Lord today, I heard Him say, “Watch for the new and unusual graces.”

I knew, immediately, the Lord was speaking about grace and empowerment to flow in the anointing and empowerment of His Spirit in new ways.

I felt the Holy Spirit encouraging His people that just because it feels “uncomfortable” doesn’t mean it’s not God. There are new ways the Lord wants to move through His people in this hour; new ways of moving with the Holy Spirit, such as new giftings and new anointings that the Lord is inviting His people into. It can feel uncomfortable and scary to step out into the unfamiliar, but it is exciting because you will find the empowerment and move of the Holy Spirit through your life in a way you haven’t seen or experienced before.

Why Are These ‘New Graces’ so Unusual?

The Lord spoke to me that these “unusual graces” are unusual for a couple of reasons:

1. They are not what you are used to operating in.

2. There is a new level of creativity He is releasing in these assignments and projects. It looks different. The blueprint is completely new. It is a new level of pioneering and building with the Lord—in completely unexpected yet glorious ways.

Again, I felt the Holy Spirit saying, “Do not hold onto that which was out of fear or to stay comfortable, but step into the new and unusual graces, for in these places you will find unprecedented moves of My Spirit and an explosive harvest of fruit.”

Blessed Are the Pure in Heart, for They Will See God

Over the last few weeks, the Lord has also been showing me that some of the greatest encounters with Him in this hour are going to come in some of the most unexpected ways and places. I heard the Lord say, “You will encounter Me in new ways.”

He brought to my mind Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” I was reminded of some of my deepest encounters with the Lord where He has invited me to have eyes that look for Him everywhere. So I am looking for Him everywhere I go in my day, always looking for what He is doing. I believe that a key prayer in this hour is that very thing: Ask the Holy Spirit to give you eyes to see Him in the unexpected, to look for Him everywhere.

There are going to be some moments of “commissioning,” coming in some of the most unexpected ways, into these new and unusual graces and assignments.

‘Lean into the Leading’

I hear the Lord say, “Lean into the leading.” There will be moments in your day when you feel the tug of His Spirit unexpectedly on your heart; you will feel and recognize His presence in unusual ways. Don’t dismiss these moments. Steward them well by stopping and leaning in, for some of them are going to be moments of incredible encounter and commissioning by the Holy Spirit.

These moments of encounter with the Lord and His heart, and the wisdom and direction He is going to release, I don’t have words to articulate. There is a new depth of His heart and His voice that you will find in surprising places. Stay grounded and founded in the Word of God daily, and look for Him everywhere.

Deep Joy in Deep Trust

The joy that you find in the new ways you encounter the Lord will be deep. You will find joy in moving with the Holy Spirit in these new and unusual graces and assignments, and these moments will be some of the greatest of your life thus far.

Operating in these graces requires deep trust, deep dependence and yielding to the Holy Spirit. Trust Him where He’s leading you, even if you’ve never imagined going in that direction. Trust Him, for in your obedience and surrender, you are being positioned to see the greatest move of the Holy Spirit through your life thus far! {eoa}
