Prophetic Word: ‘I Am Removing the Lens of Loss and Positioning You for Expectancy’

by | May 24, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Recently I heard the Lord speaking over many that have been through an intense season of trauma and loss. He was highlighting perspective and how what many had been through had shifted their lenses. He showed me that because of the trauma many had endured, they were now looking at life through lenses of loss and death. Expectancy of hope—the confident expectation of good, hope and restoration—had been lost.

I felt the Lord’s heart so strongly for these ones. There was a tangible sense of the comfort of the Lord and the healing and deliverance by His Spirit from these traumas, and at the same time, there was a strong call to come up higher, to see from His perspective and that of the lens of life—His lens.

There was such a strong sense in this encounter that the shifting of the lens was taking place in the secret place. It was in and from the place of intimacy, in and from the place of coming to Him.

Such a limited view had come through the places of trauma. I knew in this encounter that many were still living in and from trauma and it was affecting every area of their lives. I saw it affecting their physical bodies, their emotional health, their spiritual health, their mental health, relationships and the trauma that had brought a lid upon their lives. But no more.

In coming to Him and allowing the Spirit of God to minister to the parts of their hearts where trauma has come, I watched while tears flowed as rivers. I watched as tears of healing poured down when Jesus stepped into those places of trauma and by His Spirit brought total freedom and total restoration. I watched as Jesus stepped in and repentance flowed for looking through the lens of trauma. I watched as Jesus stepped in and a breath of life by His Spirit was entering their hearts again.

As Jesus stepped in, there was an eviction notice given to the enemy by the Spirit of God in places where the enemy had come and brought such torment into the lives of these precious saints because of the trauma they had endured. The enemy’s landing pad of trauma in their lives was no more; the Lord was closing the door.

I then began to see the very places where these traumas and losses had taken place. The Lord was breathing upon those places, and He spoke: “These are now the places of flourishing. These are now the places of life. These are now the places of My resurrection life. These are now the places of great increase. These are now the places of radical recompense. These are now the places of rapid restoration.”

There was such a turnaround that the Lord brought by His Spirit that could only be done by His Spirit. What trauma had stolen, the Lord was now supernaturally bringing forth in healing, deliverance and restoration in a way that only He could. I watched as supernatural alignment was taking place in bodies, minds, relationships, spiritual health and circumstances. Trauma no longer had a voice. The enemy no longer had a voice in these traumas as healing flowed by the Holy Spirit and His rhema word into these places of trauma and changed the narrative, the landscape and the perspective.

I then heard the Lord say:

You will no longer look through the lens of loss. I am removing that lens of loss, and I am repositioning you in expectancy. Where many of you have suffered so much torment in your mind and discerning My voice, the spinning of confusion in discerning what I am saying—that is now breaking, and I am bringing clarity in hearing My voice again. I am increasing your expectancy as I breathe upon you. I am calling you up higher; come up higher by going deeper into pursuing Me in intimacy and going deeper in My Word to receive the revelation and panoramic view I am releasing to you.

Not only am I removing the lens of loss, but I am also increasing your vision to see as I see. Consecrate yourselves deeper in this time to listen to what I am saying and continue to cry out for the higher perspective, My perspective, into which I am ushering you. For in your crying out, in your desperation for Me, I am stretching you and making room for the more that I am releasing to you now as I remove this lens of loss.

Many of you have felt as though the traumas you have endured almost killed you, and the confusion and torment they brought has kept you stuck and contained; no more. Today is a new day in which I am delivering you into greater expectancy.

“Sevenfold restoration, sevenfold repayment and double recompense are upon you. I am delivering you and bringing you into a place of seeing what I am doing and hearing what I am saying as never before. I am working deeply on that place of perspective and expectancy. Make room by partnering with Me in what I am doing in your perspective and expectancy, as great expanse and increase are upon you.” {eoa}
