Prophecy: Keep Your Eyes on God’s Glory

by | Feb 22, 2021 | Supernatural & Dreams

Without a doubt, there are many situations that look dismal right now. But here’s what I’ve discovered. When things are most distressing or confusing, you have to keep your eyes on what God is saying and doing—those are the things that are good and positive and true (Phil. 4:8).

I heard the Spirit say, “It’s been a challenging time, obviously—but God wants us to prosper.” He’s repeatedly directed me to Jeremiah 29:5-14, the context for which was the Israelites’ captivity. They were instructed to build houses, plant gardens, establish families and to increase. In short, God told them even in captivity, He had plans for them to prosper—but He also told them they needed to seek Him and to pray in order to see the turnaround they desired.

We also need to focus on the harvest. God’s eternal purposes still stand. Jesus said, “Lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” (John 4:35b)

And don’t fret about judgment for those operating outside the will of God—believe me, He’s got that handled (see 1 Cor. 5:9-13).

A Street Named “Glory”

I had an intriguing encounter early one morning recently when I was half awake and half asleep. I heard the Lord say, “What if you could name a street after anything you wanted—what would it be?” Immediately in my spirit I responded with absolutely no hesitation or forethought. I said: “Glory.”

Then I fully woke up and my mind took over. I wondered, Why did I say that? Should I have responded by saying, “Miracle,” or something else? Ah, but here’s the thing. The glory is where everything happens—including miracles and surprises.

What is a sign? Is it not an indicator of things to come? What if that street named “Glory” in my encounter bore a signpost? Is it not then beckoning us to come this way—to not quit or turn aside—but press on to where the glory lies ahead and anything’s possible?

I’m convinced that everything comes back around to something I heard last November—that the Lord is allowing the current turmoil and chaos so that the whole earth will be filled with His glory (Isa. 40:5, Hab. 2:14).

I don’t think any of the prophets have the full picture of what God’s doing at the moment. Even the great prophet Elisha at one point admitted there were things God had hidden from him and not told him (2 Kings 4:27). What if God was withholding certain information so that even the powers of darkness are surprised? Now that’s intriguing!

We may not know what it will look like, but I’m convinced of this: We need to get ready for the glory of the Lord—for it’s about to be released in America!
