Today I want to share with you a word from a dear friend of ours that is part of the church we were Assistant Pastors at in Maine before moving to Georgia. This is a solid woman of faith, a spiritual mother to many, and has an accurate prophetic voice in that local area. I would not post a word from another source if I wasn’t confident the source it came from. This word is an accurate, now word. This word is from Carla Hayes in Fort Fairfield, Maine.

IMG_8227“Now is the time to shift. Sound the alarm. Get positioned. You have been trained to step in, I will train and instruct with further instruction once you position yourself. Lives are at stake. We are in a serious time that believers need to take seriously the call. Not all are called for leadership positions, however, the skilled labors are prepared to step in and come along side. Don’t delay in seeking my face for this “now move”. It won’t look like, taste like, or feel like what you have known in the past. Be bold, be courageous for I have prepared you to cross this Jordan. As the priest carried my presence into the waters, so will I part them for you. When I move-you move. Cycles will be broken, lives will be rescued. You have never passed this way before.

Don’t fear, lean on one another’s skills and anointing’s. Don’t break rank as a body, be aware of the enemy’s devices and schemes. You have seen and experienced this “stuff.” Wise as serpents but harmless as doves. You “must” know your authority, you “must” be smarter than your enemy. I will tell you secrets that will confound your enemy. I cannot part the waters for you until you step in. I am your shield and rear guard.

1) Beware of words spoken that take you back into your comfort zone.

2) You must go in and take the land which I have already given you. The enemy is terrified of you. You need to know that he knows, the land is yours to occupy. You have to know that. There are giants BUT you are well able to take them down. Be sure to cut their heads off.

3) Don’t be afraid- new land, new strategies. Don’t think that the old way will work- The world has answers but not My answers. My ways are higher.

Come up here- where you can see how “small’ the giants really are from my perspective. I know your failures and your weaknesses. That is why I chose you. This will be for my glory.” ~Carla Hayes 10-27-2015

I hope you were encouraged by this word. When I read it I knew it was for many and I know it’s for The Church now. Now is the time to shift!
