This prophetic word is titled Getting Through the Tunnel. In the prophetic word for 2022, I gave you the picture of us going through a very dark tunnel and the goal is for us to get to the end of the tunnel by focusing on the light.
Who is this word for? The people who are feeling stuck right now. All you see around you is darkness. You are not feeling very hopeful, you don’t feel good about how things are going and you’re not sure how to move forward. The Lord gave me a powerful prayer for you at the end as well.
God is bringing me back to this for this week. He’s giving the picture of the tunnel again and He’s saying that some of you are focusing on the darkness in the tunnel a little bit too much and as a result it is causing you to be stuck.
Is it dark, yes! We can all see it. There are some pretty bad things that are happening right now and will continue to happen throughout 2022. This is a fact.
However, focusing on the darkness is not making it go away. You are actually making it worse for yourself by focusing on the darkness.
It is the job of the media to get people riled up. Fear and division is a money maker so you NEED to guard your heart.
Your only way out of this is not to be influenced by negativity.
The Lord is showing me some of you are riding in that train and instead of looking forward to where you are going you are paying attention to what is going on outside on the sidelines. And it is sucking you in.
These are the little distractions that the enemy is using in this hour to get people stuck. Get your mind wrapped up in things you can’t change. He’s making sure you live in doubt, fear, unbelief, division and unforgiveness. When you are focused on these things it is very difficult for you to move forward. You start thinking “this needs to be resolved first before I can move forward” in reality that is a lie. It’s an illusion.
The enemy knows that whatever you focus on will appear bigger and bigger and bigger until everything else around it vanishes. After a while you are not even going to see the good that God is doing because you are so focused on that darkness.
(Isaiah 26:3-4 NKJV)
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.“
Whatever is captivating your mind, your thoughts, whatever has your full an undivided attention is going to dictate your peace or lack thereof. Where is your mind stayed? What are you focused on?
Here is a simple test to show you how your mind works. You see this image below? At first glance you can clearly see there is a dot in the center and there are other colors around it. Now, if you just stare at the dot and count to 10 you are going to notice something. …
What did you see?
Whatever you focus on gets magnified and everything else vanishes! If you just glance at it you can see there’s a dot but you also see there are other beautiful colors around it which is far greater than the one dot. However, focusing magnifies it and makes it seem like nothing else is there.
This is how your brain works! Whatever you allow in to captivate your mind and your thoughts takes over. This is why it says in Psalm 34: 3
“Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.”
Magnify! Hebrew – Gadal which means to grow up, to become great, become tall, bigger, greater, increased, highly valued, more, exalted, enlarged.
Make God bigger. Focus on Him and what He told you. When you do this guess what happens? verse 4-6
I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
When you look to Him…Deliverance! Inevitably you turn into what you are focused on. Focus on the Light so that your face will become radiant. Not darkness, so that you become depressed. No! Rebuke that! Everything else vanishes when you focus on the Lord and you can clearly see and hear what God is saying.
If it is someone that you are listening to that keeps bringing you into that pit, then you need to cut it off. Shut down and drown out the negative voices. Keep the darkness outside the train, which in turn keeps those hooks out of you. You are just passing through that tunnel you are not planning on staying there. Everyone is well aware what is out there…just don’t let it get into you.
Here’s the prayer:
Abba Father, first I want to repent for allowing all of this negativity to get into me. I pray God that You would forgive me for taking my eyes off of You. Thank you for refocusing my eyes on what matters the most which is You. I thank you that in magnifying You instead of what is happening around me, You will step in to deliver me from all of my fears. I can now see the light and the goodness that You have promised instead of the darkness. Demolish all of these things that have come in to distract me. God, I ask that You would untether me from every false thing or mindsets that I have held me captive. Break the chains that have me bound to fear. Unhook me from unbelief and doubt. Break the chains of hopelessness. Cut me loose from hurt and anger. Release my heart from unforgiveness. Set me free to love others. Set me on the right path again. Give me a renewed hope in Your promises. Fill me with Your Agape Love. Make my face resplendent with Your glory. I pray now that You would begin to close all the doors that I have opened to the enemy where he is accessing my emotions. Cut me loose from every and all negative forces. I put my trust whole heartedly in you Lord. I look to You for complete deliverance. In this season of miracles, I pray that I will see it. Help me to be more aware of all the blessings you have already given to me. I am trusting You for more, in Jesus name, Amen.
We will celebrate the Festival of Lights in a few days and I believe this is the timing of the Lord to get you back on track.
