Miracle Monday – He Comes with Great Recompense for You

He Comes with Great Recompense for You
Many Are Coming To Christ
Word for 2022
By Miki Maynard

There are waves of Yahweh’s goodness and love crashing over and over again upon the people.

I see a long pathway that is straight and narrow that leads to heaven. There are many people on it, but I see more and more adding to it. Hundreds and hundreds piling in and filling it up, so the narrow path becomes full and loaded with many peoples of the earth.

In the fall of 2019, the Lord gave me many pictures and insights of what was to take place in 2020 and once again I see these many actions that the Lord is taking on behalf of His children and to those He is drawing to Himself. He comes with a recompense! He comes with a determined passion of reconciliation, restitution, and restoration. I see a picture of the Lord Jesus riding a horse that is quickly approaching and He has fire in His eyes. There is dust flying out from the horse’s fast running.

The horse is loaded and packed with overflowing large bags that Jesus has provided, and He rides quickly and swiftly towards us. Within His heart is a raging love so much so that His heart is overflowing out of His bosom. The all-consuming fire is going to be poured out upon those the Father has drawn, and I see eyes popping open with revelation.

I see their hearts comprehending how great the love of the Father is for them. There is an immediate transformation from the throne of heaven that burns away all soulish perspectives that they had, and these ones are coming out as shining pure ones equipped with a quickening of the baptism of the Spirit and with fire.


They in turn will receive a fullness of what the Father has for them in the Spirit to respond to evangelism’s beckoning without fear or hindrances from the anti-Christ who wants to try to speak out against the body of Christ. (Photos via Unsplash)

The Great Comforter Comes to Stop Panic

Many in the Body have been experiencing incredible circumstances from the shaking that is taking place to where it has wanted to cause a panic. There was a foreknowledge that the shaking is coming but some of it has been in unexpected ways that are involved directly in their own personal lives. Their own sickness or illness wasn’t expected. The persecution was, but accusations of their own integrity from the world and even from the Body was not anticipated. The trials at work were, but job losses were not. The salvation of family members is anticipated, but other family issues were not. Losses were, but many losses, even of life, were not.

The stress and sudden folding of these events have wanted to cause a panic in the hearts of His children. However, the Lord comes in to assure that He has His children with a firm grasp of their hand, and He refuses to let go. He comes in with the assurance that, yes indeed there is a shaking, but He will not leave or forsake them. He comes with passion for recompense, and as The Great Comforter.

His compassions flow into those who feel broken and hurt by these events. His compassions then in turn flow out from these who once felt that they were going to panic because they felt like they were losing so much that they couldn’t bear it. It was simply too much. Yet The One who is Love comes and shows Himself to be True and to the very present Lord of their life allowing them to keep their eyes on Him.

The compassions of the Lord are faithful and true and the testimony of His great work in their hearts flow to others to bring forth comfort that will cause those who are on the straight and narrow path to spur on in the fight of faith. It will cause others who don’t know Christ yet, to taste and see that the Lord is good and that He is the One True God, Maker of heaven and earth.

Great Provision and Coordinated Efforts Shine His Glory and Many Will Come to Salvation

There is a release of provisions and strategies to the Body of Christ for the building up of financial foundations and provisions. There is a networking and assisting of laborers in many markets in the Body of Christ that will bring a strengthening safety net across the earth that will be untouchable by the enemy. Those that love the Lord who are kings in the earth will safeguard the works in the Body. It will shine forth and have a fragrance of Christ that will attract the lost who will join the path to heaven.

The body of Christ is in this purifying process with their focus having a single eye for their first love in Christ. He is The One who walks next to them. He is The One whom they love and serve. He will give them the words to speak, and the realm of the Kingdom will be released. Many will see with utter astonishment and hear about wonders and put their trust in the greatness and the goodness of the Lord.

His Presence in the Pressure

His Presence In The Pressure

Miki Maynard

You have stepped out in faith to reach those who need Yahweh, and the enemy is mad. I am seeing in the Spirit for weeks now the Holy Spirit swirling over you with a covering like a praise flag is swirled over people. Your heart is to love Yahweh and reach out and love those who are coming into the Kingdom.

Jesus reached out to the lost and was accused. The religious spirit is accusing you of sin because you are reaching out the same way. The self-righteous may reject you, but Yahweh will never reject you. He sees everything that is going on. He sees your steps of faith and knows you are under pressure.

Keep your focus on following the leading of the Holy Spirit. The enemy wants your focus on him because he is full of self-importance. He wants you to fear and worry about rejection and that everything is going to fall apart. But God! Your God steps in and is covering you.

One of my favorite teachers, Bonnie Nelson, is teaching about “resistance.” What timing! This word about resistance is no coincidence. You are going against the grain. It is difficult to walk this way because it is a deliberate advancement for the manifestation of the goodness of God.

God Sees It All and He Has Your Back

One night in prayer I kept seeing the Lord laughing. He kept laughing and leaning over and leaning back, just laughing. He is so happy and excited about what He is doing that He is just thrilled about it.

But what about all of this pressure? You thought you couldn’t stand it anymore. It made you ask the question, “what in the world is going on?” He knows what He has planned and He has your back.

Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
Luke 6:21

Support From Your Church Family

You are going to find a greater level of support from those who are trustworthy friends. These people know who you are and will encourage you. Prayer support from the family of believer’s is going to give you strength and dismantle the enemy’s resistance.

This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing. In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.
Hebrews 10:25 TPT

During these difficult times, if the enemy can’t get you to compromise, he will find some other way to try to prevent you from coming together with those who can discern what is happening.

When the spirit of rejection or a religious spirit tries to manipulate situations in your life, it wants to make you feel as though you don’t belong. The lie wants you to think that they won’t believe you but believe the enemy. It hopes to cause you to withdraw and feel that you won’t be accepted by your church family.

You will see and experience the miraculous. Resist the lies and believe the One who is Truth. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. (John 14:6) When you step forward you will hear the Lord tell you that He has given you this land. You have been prepared for this and are stepping into a new place full of promises fulfilled.

Press Into Him in the Pressure and Find His Presence

Not only will you find comfort and assurance from the Body of Christ, but you will find it from Him. Press into Yahweh while in the pressure, and you will experience Him in a new way.

It’s a new revelation of His presence: One morning I was feeling the squeezing pressure. I sat overwhelmed but looked to Him. There He was. I paused and exhaled. I thought to myself and then said to Him, “once again, the difficulty has made me look for You even more, and here You are.”

Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option. We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 TPT

His Glory is Increasing Upon Us

I was on a walk around a lake yesterday, feeling the pressure, but spending time with the Lord. I happened to look at a family walking and felt that nudge of the Spirit. It was a lovely Hispanic family. One of the ladies was on the phone. She was the one I was supposed to speak to about something that the Lord was going to do for her. The problem was, she stayed on the phone. I made another walk around and saw she was still talking on her phone.

Eventually, she got off. So carefully and kindly I approached them in my not so fluent Spanish and inquired if I may ask them a question. I began to share what the Lord said, and the gal began to cry. SHE was under pressure! The Lord met her! Glory to God!

He is going to increase His glory upon you! You know how our kids play these games where the player selects a “boost of power?” That is how it is going to be. You are going to sense an increase of measure that is going to overcome you and overflow to others.

While I was writing this, I noticed that our dear sister Deb Fry also posted about this, and it was a powerful confirmation:

Deborah Waldron Fry on September 22nd, 2021, shared, “QUANTUM LEAP: sudden highly significant advance; breakthrough; an abrupt change, sudden increase, or dramatic advance.”

He is going to do a special work that is very specific and intentional for these days that we are in. Even though you are in the pressure, He is going to bestow an abiding weighty presence that is overcoming upon you and overflowing to others. People will taste and see that the LORD He is good!

Step out in faith My Beloved for I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh and the people will see it and know that I Am the Lord!

The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Isaiah 40:5 NKJV

And so be it, until my honor (translations say “glory”) passes by,
I put you in a clift (some say cleft) of the rock
and cover you with my palm while I pass by:
Exodus 33:22 Exegesis Bible

Miracle Monday – Listen to the One Suffering

Miracle Monday
By Miki Maynard

Listen to the One Suffering

In my first course of seminary the professor had us read a book about people who are suffering. I’m going to be vulnerable. At first, I was disappointed because it wasn’t what I was expecting to be the first assignment. However, it didn’t take long until I discovered some very important things. I always want to remain teachable. It had different perspectives about people who were involved in the trial of suffering.



The participants had a conversation with many strong views on what they think God is like. The story caused me to reflect on how I would seek God if I was the one in pain, and it took me farther than that. I must ask the question; how would I treat someone when they are suffering?

In the story the person is in the midst of agonizing heart break, loss, and physical pain. Their friends say they are trying to help. The more they talk, however, it becomes evident that they have an attitude that is self-righteous. Words that are supposed to bring comfort become words of judgment.

Thrown Into a Situation of Someone Suffering

Right as my class was ending, I was notified of an urgent problem. I found myself thrown into a situation of someone who was experiencing agony, grief, and injustice. I couldn’t believe that this was happening right at the same time of the required reading for my course. Now I’m finding myself out of the experience of reading what was happening in the book to suddenly experiencing it in real life. This person needed me.

I’ll refer to this person as “the one” so they can have privacy. Their suffering made them feel isolated and devastated. The one was surrounded by some people who had all kinds of negative things to say. They spread their story to other friends and family. Regretfully, ulterior motives negatively influenced people and they didn’t realize that there were many things going on that they didn’t understand.

It made the one feel even worse. It began to wear and tear down how they normally think. Usually, very confident and happy, now, they were in despair and hopelessness.

What Can Be Said That Does Any Good?

In the story line of the book, their “friend’s” words aren’t helping them at all. In my situation, “friends” began to tell the one suffering what they thought as well as others. It made the one suffering feel misrepresented, so the pain grew deeper, and anger grew bigger.

When I was on my way to be with the one, I was praying and asking Yahweh what to do. Immediately, the Holy Spirit said, “listen.” So, when I finally arrived, I listened. I listened and listened again, day after day. Sure, I was helping with practical things, but the main act that I knew was so very important to do, was to simply listen.

The more I was silent, the more the one felt like they were able to talk. They were finally being heard. It became a safe place to cry. It is now a moment to grieve. It was at that point that I knew the one was finding comfort that they needed so badly. Comfort that they hadn’t had for a very long time.

Comfort Comes from Love

Gently, when the time was right, I was led to say a few words that gave reassurance and support. I took some steps and gave a little guidance that was needed to gather support from trustworthy friends who love the one. Then the one started feeling steadfastness arise in their heart and began reaching out. It wasn’t long before message after message started pouring in to show fondness to the one.

I learned that loving someone who is suffering through listening is a gift to them. The tattered and trodden heart and mind is slowly being rebuilt. Despair and helplessness are diminishing. Destructive voices are growing dim. A new light of courageous hope is strengthening the heart. The one is finding comfort and knows they are not alone.

Love protects. Love builds up. Love helps. Love is present. I believe love listens.


FS Miracle Monday – Your Promise is Guaranteed 08/16/21

Miracle Monday
By Miki Maynard

Your Promise is Guaranteed

Our Father Yahweh is a giver of promises. He makes promises all through the bible. Jesus has not only secured all His promises for us but guarantees them.

Secured Your Promise

When someone provides security for something, they are giving freedom from apprehension. That means that you won’t need to be anxious or worried. You can have confidence that it’s kept safe, guarded, and protected.

Guaranteed Your Promise

Jesus not only has safeguarded your promises, but He has guaranteed them.

So, all of this magnifies the truth that we have a superior covenant with God than what they experienced, for Jesus himself is its guarantor!
Hebrews 7:22 TPT



[the] guarantee
ἔγγυος (engyos)
Adjective – Nominative Masculine Singular
Strong’s 1450: A surety, security. From en and guion; pledged, i.e. A bondsman.

Guarantor: One who makes or gives a guaranty; a warrantor; a surety.
One who engages to secure another in any right or possession.
Strong’s Hebrew 6161 arubbah: a thing exchanged, pledge, token.

By guaranteeing the promise to you, He is saying that He will carry it out. He has made a pledge that He will perform it.

He Doesn’t Change

Yahweh doesn’t regret giving His promise to you. It’s legally established in the courts of heaven. It’s a contract that is secured by the Savior who was found to be perfect. (See Hebrews chapter 7)

but with Jesus, God affirmed his royal priesthood
with his promise, saying,
“The Lord has made a solemn oath
and will never change his mind,
‘You are a King-Priest forever!’ ” Hebrews 7:21 TPT

Jesus is not in a temporary office where things will change. Your promise is secured permanently and forever. It’s held and kept safe in the loving provision of Yahweh. It’s guaranteed to be carried out. As you trust and obey Him, the outcome is certain.

Not one of the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.
Joshua 21:45 NASB

The LORD kept every one of the promises that he had made to the people of Israel.
Joshua 21:45 GNT


Now behold, today I am going the way of all the earth, and you know with all your heart and soul that not one of the good promises the LORD your God made to you has failed. Everything was fulfilled for you; not one promise has failed.
Joshua 23:14 BSB

“Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people Israel according to all that He promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises He made through His servant Moses. 1 Kings 8:56 NASB

I foretold the former things long ago; they came out of My mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.
Isaiah 48:3 NASB



He Hears Your Prayer and The Fire of God – 06/28/21

Miracle Monday
By Miki Maynard

He Hears Your Prayer and The Fire of God

At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. Psalms 5:3 TPT

Is it just me, or do you find that at night when the day is done, and the lights are turned off and it’s quiet, that sometimes it is easier to sense His very present presence? Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, I long to realize what I sensed the night before. I feel like I am nothing without Him and can’t do anything without Him. He is the very essence of life. It is His love that gives me strength!

In the morning, our hearts long to seek His face! Nothing matters more. I am compelled to cry out to God. Lord give me the right heart and a right spirit that will sustain me! I lay all of the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for You. Let Your fire ignite in My heart. Let me be aware of Your presence. Let me abide with You! Make me a servant and to be more like You.

He Takes Up Your Prayer So That His Fire Burns in Your Heart
During a difficult time, I was walking from one place to another at work and noticed that He was walking right beside me. I definitely took a double take! I was amazed. He was looking at me with a huge smile on His face. His love and passion for me was like a fire. This gave me so much joy and strength. Look closely and you will see Him walking right beside you.

Remember What He Did Before Because He Will Do It Again

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. He loving devotion endures forever. Psalm 118:1 BSB

Today, as you press in to setting your focus on Him, I want to encourage you to remember how He has walked with you and talked with you. I want to say to you “don’t give up!” I ask you to remember what He has done for you before in your life and how He has always been faithful. He is still devoted to you! I pray and ask that you sense His manifest presence as you read this. I pray He floods you with His love right now.

He Will Bring You Refreshing Right Here and Right Now
This passage says that He “takes up” your prayers because He cares for you:

Those who look to Him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear Him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Psalm 34:5-10 ESV

May I be so bold to ask you to read this previous passage out loud? May I suggest putting your name in the verses while you read it again? Declare His promises to you today. Lay the pieces of your life on the altar and His fire will burn in your heart.

Those (your name) who look to Him are radiant (sparkle). Psalm 34:5 ESV

At each and every sunrise you will hear my (your name here) voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my (your name here) heart. Psalms 5:3 TPT

Hear my voice in the morning,
O Yahweh; in the morning I arrange to you and watch.
Psalm 5:3 Exegeses Parallel Bible

Yahweh hears my (your name here) supplication;
Yahweh takes my (your name here) prayer.
Psalm 6:9 Exegeses Parallel Bible

Yes! Yahweh my healer has heard all my (your name here) pleading
and has taken hold of my (your name here) prayers and answered them all.
Psalm 6:9 TPT

What Time Is It?

June 7, 2021

He Cares For You

Cast your burdens on Me, because I care for you. I see your cares and worries. I care for you. I don’t want you carrying them, because they fill your arms with the wrong stuff. It blocks what I want you to see and prevents My life and joy from filling your heart and mind. The load weighs you down. They are not guarding your heart while you hold onto them. I am here to take them from you. Let’s move from focusing on the winds of adversity to the winds that My Spirit is blowing! I am the one who gives you Life. Take My burden and My yoke upon you and come dance the dance of LIFE with Me.

I see His arms open to receive all of the things that need to be given to Him. Casted away from you to Him. He is calling you to dance with Him.

Now He has His arms open and gathers you and pulls you close towards His heart and holds you in His arms. He is doing amazing things for you to show you that He CARES for you.

Come Dance the Dance of Life with Me

NOW is the time! It’s time to trust Me on the deeper level that I am drawing you into. My love draws you with lovingkindness. You have seen Me do things that you will never forget. I am not done. I will do more for you. When you see what I do for you, you will begin to realize even more how much I care for you.

I see a “stepping” into what the Spirit would beckon you into.

As you have been experiencing My love in some ways that “baffle” you and surprise you, we are going to take My love with us out of the boat, in the winds of the Spirit. Others will see and experience My love in ways that will astound them.

The Lord is showing me that He is standing next to us and holding out His Hand for us to take it and let Him lead the way to those who need Him. I see His tears of fire and the smile on His face. I feel such a longing. It’s an unconditional, patient love, but a longing to take Him by the hand and let Him lead to the places of promise. Promises given to us personally and promises given to others.

There is no need to fear. He is bigger and stronger than anything or anyone. He clears the way and goes ahead of you.

You shall step out of the boat. You will step in with the Spirit. There is a stepping up, there is a stepping out, and a stepping into the Kingdom winds with the Spirit. Speak to the winds and command the breath of God to breath life.

My expressions of Love have amazed you and NOW it is time to take it to others. There is NOW fruitful pathways and gardens with the Spirit’s fragrance that will fill the air and be recognized by people and they will know who I AM.

Jesus Takes Her Burden – A Story of His Loving Care

The other day, a friend and I just happened to make a quick, unplanned stop into the grocery store. As we were being checked out, I saw that the gal helping us was burdened with a great care and worry about something she was experiencing personally. I didn’t want to come across harshly or abruptly, because this was personal. I wanted to start the conversation gently, and not miss the moment. I asked her if she was experiencing this specific issue, or maybe someone in her family? She looked at me, surprised, and said, “its me!”

Then I was able to share with her what was impressed upon my heart from the Lord for her. It came from His love for her. She felt His care and her countenance changed. The Arms of the Lord reached out to help her with her burden to show her that He sees her and cares for her. Glory to God! It is time!

Trust Him! Step out of the boat!

God Promises Restoration – 04-26-21

God Promises Restoration

God cares about you and He thinks about all of the areas of your life that you think about. His nature is one of lovingkindness that is devoted to you. He promises to restore you and the things in your life.

This week, I am featuring Dr. Mary Sue Davis’s brief, yet compelling teaching on restoration. When I read it, it strengthens my heart, because of the caring details found in the promises from the bible. It also helped me to understand the powerful concept of “restoration” in a deeper way.

We know that one of the keys to reading the Bible, is to let it transform the way we think. I like the way Dr. Mary Sue “spells out” restoration. I hope it allows you to see that the Lord will do more for you than you can even think about asking Him. He is a God of big surprises.

I hope that your heart is encouraged and your thinking about restoration is ignited with faith found in these powerful biblical truths.



by Dr. Mary Sue Davis



Restore means to make restitution, shalam (Strong’s #7999; shaw-lam). figuratively, to be (or to make completed; by implication, to be friendly; by extension, to reciprocate (in various applications). Translated as “make amends,” “finish,” “full,” “make good,” “repay,” “make restitution.” It has the idea of returning something to its rightful owner, or making amends, in the sense of attempting to put things back the way they were.

To restore, shuwb (Strong’s #7725; shoob). To turn back (hence, away), literally or figuratively (not necessarily with the idea of return to the starting point). This word carries the notion of a This is exactly what happened in restoration of the temple: He said that the glory of the latter house would be greater than the former. When He restores, He does something that makes the restored of higher quality than what was lost. So it is with the restoration of all things.

God’s judgment, justice is always restorative.


Not really lost, just seems to be.

The lost joy of salvation: Psalm 51:10–12—“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” TPT

The lost sense of justice: Isaiah 1:26—“Then I will restore your judges as at first, And your counselors as at the beginning; After that you will be called the city of righteousness, A faithful city.” NASB

The lost motivation for living: Isaiah 57:18—“I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.” (KJV)

The lost time: Joel 2:25—“Then I will restore to you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the creeping locust, the stripping locust, and the gnawing locust—My great army which I sent among you.” NASB

The lost power to live strongly: Isaiah 40:31—“Yet those who wait for the Lord
will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” NASB

The lost youthfulness in life: Psalm 103:5—“You satisfy my every desire with good things. You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again like a flying eagle in the sky!” TPT (Photo Pixabay)

Finding Life Under Pressure – April 12, 2021

Finding Life Under Pressure

There has been a lot of pressure on people for many months. We can look back on history and find that people have experienced all kinds of hardships for years all over the world. It is really nothing new, although it may be different.

When the pressure is on, sometimes I find things wanting to come out of me that I don’t like. How can I be a Christian and have this sort of struggle? Then there are times when I feel like I am doing everything I can and responding with Christ-likeness and the pressure just gets worse.

I Feel Like I’m Running Into Nothing But Walls

When under pressure, there have been times when I feel like I run into walls everywhere I turn and I have nowhere to go. This verse tells me that there is something I can do and that I do have a place I can go.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 says:
“We often feel completely hemmed in on every side, but our inner space remains unrestricted; when there seems to be no way out, we escape within.”

2 Corinthians 4:10-12 shows me how I can find help by looking within:
“Wherever we go, whatever we encounter in our bodies, we bear witness within us of the fact that Jesus died our death; in the same body, we now exhibit His life. The fact that we co-died in his death confirms that we now co-live in His resurrection!”

“Our day-to-day experience continues to exhibit that even in the face of death, our association with the death Jesus already died remains the inspiration of His life made so clearly visible within us. This is in such contrast to the circumstances that we are often faced with. Our persuasion of our co-crucifixion with Christ in the face of death threatening circumstances inspires life in you.”

The word “inspires” here translates as “energy trigger” from the word energeo in the Greek.

I have learned that when I pause in the moment, or take some time before responding when faced with a difficulty, I can avoid getting myself into a predicament. Even though I have made mistakes in the past, I can do this when I depend upon the Lord.

I think about what I want to do. So I pray and ask for the Spirit’s help. I make the choice to respond with the life that Christ has given to me. Then it energizes me, because I am allowing it to happen. I have to yield. I have to die to the old ungodly ways so the new godly ways can work their way out from inside of me. (Photos via Unsplash)

Is God Squeezing the Crud Out of Me When I’m Under Pressure?

The pressure can be very uncomfortable because I’m having to deal with unpleasant things. This is really what it feels like sometimes…can I say it like this? “He is squeezing the crud out of me?” That’s not quite it…actually. I guess what I feel like is, the “crud” is a dead end. There is no place for it anymore. What is really happening is, His life is wanting to come out of me when I’m in the pressure. That is what is supposed to happen.

This is what co-living with Christ means. The old way is simply dead, ended, and gone. It’s been killed in Christ’s death that He has done on my behalf. Now, the new way is energized. So I carry the understanding that the old ways are dead in order for the new ways of life to spring forth.

Here is a diagram for a visual of the miracle of experiencing pressure in a life with Christ:

When I feel pressure in life, I lean into the One who is always with me. He energizes the ability to allow the formation of His will inside of me, and then it flows out from me. He has made a difficult and uncomfortable pressure in my life… a powerful and life-giving pressure in my life.

He Is Making All Things New
March 29, 2021
By Miki Maynard

God is giving you a new vision, because He is bringing a supernatural “newness” that is overtaking your life. Hope has risen. A new wind is at your back. Strength and refreshing is birthing within you that one feels after some much needed rest, or when you clean something or bathe. It’s like walking into a lush garden. A garden with a wonderful array of colors, fragrance, trees with shade and flowers in the warmth of the sunshine.

This is bringing joy to you and a new found strength to be productive in areas that were becoming difficult for you to do recently, where in the past they weren’t hard for you to do at all.

There are several pictures that I see that I feel describe what is going on. There are a bunch of tools overflowing in your pockets. God put them there for you to use. He wants “you” to use them for the assignments you are supposed to do, and not someone else. You even thought that you have been disqualified somehow or that your season is over in these specific areas. (Photo via Unsplash)

You were beginning to think that because of different reasons, that you were going to stay stuck in this place that you were in, but it isn’t so. Thoughts may have crossed your mind that certain things you once had in the past, were going to remain in the past.

Your God is speaking into your situation and circumstances now. I see His Hand brushing away dust that tried to cover up and hide promises and plans God gave you. He is calling them forth so you can see them and have vision again.

They are being poured into your lap and laughter will be overflowing in your heart like it used to. Abundance is yours! Your confidence is going to be filling up with peaceful reassurance in your Father’s unchanging love for you. He is going to make an effort to lavish His love upon you again and again. This is going to increase your trust and faith in Him. Watch for it, because He will be using many ways to affirm this for you with an effort on His part, to show it to you in special ways so much so that you will not easily forget what happens.

The windows of heaven are open and they are bringing in breezes of the Spirit. These winds will cause your face to be bright in His Light and you will gleam in the joy of the Lord. This is causing a brisk walk in your newfound closeness and is a new-sprung level of abiding life. (Photo via Unsplash)

In this new season, it is like your footprints are walking about a marina. The footprints are not on the boats or docks. They’re on the water. You’re walking on the water. Your God is releasing a roar into your life to take back what was stolen and lost. He is taking you by the hand and releasing courage in you and giving you new thrusters to launch you forward to take land for the kingdom.

You are able to run now too. You will jump over any hurdles on the track with a leap. Your efforts of staying close to Him or plans in serving Him won’t be diverted, because your focus is on the prize as you run the race. (Photos via Unsplash)

You thought you were going to be stuck for whatever reasons there have been in your circumstances, but that is not the case. He has gone before you and set a solid rock beneath you and a lighted path before you. The deep work He is doing in you and in your heart and life is like a remodeling or a brand-new constructed home. The very “Life” with in is birthing “all things new” in you and in your pathway. What used to be like “that,” is now….like “this!”

Indeed, the Lord will comfort Zion;
He will comfort all her waste places.
And her wilderness He will make like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the Lord;
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
Thanksgiving and sound of a melody.
Isaiah 51:3

“Like valleys that stretch out,
Like gardens beside the river,
Like aloes planted by the Lord,
Like cedars beside the waters.
Numbers 24:6

But yet indeed the foundation of God still stands
Solid having the seal, the Lord knows who are His.
2 Timothy 2:19

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
John 3:8

The mighty Spirit of Lord Yahweh is wrapped around me
because Yahweh has anointed me,
as a messenger to preach good news to the poor.
He sent me to heal the wounds of the brokenhearted,
to tell captives, “You are free,”
and to tell prisoners, “Be free from your darkness.
Isaiah 61:1

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17

Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss.

That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me the right path
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honor to his name.
The Good Shepherd
David’s poetic praise to God
Psalm 23:1-3
