Monthly Partner Letter – February 2018!
A Time to Harvest
We are in a new year, but not only that, we have entered into a new season! I feel it in my spirit…just as I have written about the past couple days.
For those who have ears to hear, that’s you by the way, we have entered into a time of harvesting.
As I write those words I am reminded of Breanne, my daughter. You see, she sought God about ways to cause her farm to pay for itself, which I think is great wisdom.
One thing she decided to do was to raise mini pigs. Her and the kids love these little pigs, so it seemed a good fit.
She has three female pigs. It turns out they all became pregnant at almost the same time. Therefore, at Christmas time, she had three litters of mini pigs. Now, that is great for the money coming in…but it was a great deal of work to have three litters at one time.
Harvest is work!
Think about people who plant gardens. The gardens are beautiful and produce a great crop, for sure, but they are a lot of work. I know this personally. Harvest time is the busiest time of year!
So it is in the spirit. It is not time to slow down or quit, it is harvest time…time to get to harvesting where you have sown.
As I thought on all this, I received an email from Chuck Pierce Ministry where his wife Pam was talking about a weed that was growing in their gardens, it is called a poverty weed. She went on to say they were working to remove that weed from their property. In the midst of this email there was a short teaching I want to share with you.
What is Poverty and How Does It Take Root in our Lives?
Poverty is refusing to become what God has created and destined us to be and not believing that the Lord can branch us into the fullness of His plan. Poverty is not just experiencing lack but also the fear that we WILL lack. Poverty occurs when we conform our circumstances to the blueprint that the world has surrounded us with. Poverty occurs when the god of this world surrounds and influences us with only a world perspective, causing us to forget God’s ability in the midst of our circumstances. Poverty is the voice that says, “God is not able!”
The main cause for poverty in our lives is failure to harvest. When we do not gather the harvest, a poverty mentality is set against us. Many times, the enemy will wait until our harvest time to develop strategies of devastation against us. Like the Midianites who always stole the harvest from the Israelites (see Judges 6), the enemy has already devised a plan to eat up our assets and returns. We can plant. We can watch our crops grow. We can even have a time of harvest. But if we do not take our opportunity to gather and steward the harvest, a strategy of poverty will begin to develop against us. When we increase without developing the storehouses to contain what we have harvested, the enemy will gain access to our excess and to our future.
During this time of increase and expansion, we are declaring with every poverty weed we remove here that there is a new level of prosperity and harvest for you! Don’t be content or compromise with what may be choking out your increase. Now is your time to rise up and decree that any atmosphere of poverty encircling around you or your sphere of authority will be invaded with the atmosphere of blessing and glory from heaven!
I believe that will speak to some of you.
I want to pray for you today.
Father, I remind you that these you have given me, they are our partners Lord, we bless them today and declare them blessed with an abundance in every area of their life. We declare they are arising today to a new level of prosperity and harvest. I ask you to send angels to guard their harvest and protect it – we say they will bring in every single bit of their harvest this very season. Nothing will choke out their harvest. We declare the blessing of God is overtaking each one of them right now in Jesus name.
Friends, I truly believe we have entered into a new season. This month ask God to show you how to harvest what you have sown, He will show you. We are witnesses to your seed, we stand in faith with you. We pray with you. We harvest with you.
Remember the fish Peter caught at the word of the Lord, so much that all his partners had to come help? That is what we are believing for here – that the harvest in YOUR life, this season, will be so great that you will need help to bring it in. To God be all the glory!
I want to share something with you today from Kelita, she added this after she read the Partner Letter…enjoy!
As I was reading the partner letter this morning before it goes out, I could hardly believe what I was reading! Although Kim and I have talked the last couple of days about shifting and the change we are in, I did not know what she was going to say in our monthly partner letter.
You see, I talk to God and pray on my way to work every day and today was no different. My husband and I are believing to get out of debt and are working on ways to do what we know to do in the natural to make this happen. However, we like many, are tired of working hard and doing extra things to get money, only to have something steal it. (our most recent theft was him hitting a deer and costing us $1000 of money we have earmarked for debt) So, as I was talking to the Lord this morning, I repented for anything we have done to allow these thefts through our words, actions or doubt and unbelief and then I said OUT LOUD: I AM SHAMMAH! AND ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! No more harvests stolen!!! Who is Shammah? Years ago, I heard a minister preach about a man under King David named Shammah and the Philistines kept coming and stealing his harvest. One year, he said he had had enough and fought back and the Lord was with him and they did NOT take his harvest and the cycle stopped! (2 Sam)
Partners, if this is not a glorious confirmation to the word Kim is delivering to us today! I declared out loud this morning that the enemy would no longer steal my harvest and an hour later I read the same words from Kim. God is speaking! Shammah means “astonishment”. I say we astonish our enemy from this day forward as we draw a bloodline over our harvest and declare Enough is Enough!
And one more thing: The Lord had me reading in Judges 7 yesterday as I was meditating on the Sound of Breakthrough Kim taught. I kept thinking how God magnified Gideon and his 300 men and the sound of 300 jars breaking, 300 trumpets blaring and 300 voices shouting. It frightened the enemy and they panicked and ran. (they were perhaps astonished??) The Bible says these Midianites were so many they looked like locusts, yet, when Gideon and his 300 men released the sound of breakthrough and were obedient to God, they were victorious. God is also confirming His word with this as well, because as Kim was preparing the principle of what we are to do to get our harvest, God had me reading the victory that takes place in the very next chapter. Friends, God already has our victory planned and promised before we ever get there!
It’s time friends…God is speaking over and over again…it is time to HARVEST what we have sown!
I am excited today! What a mighty God!
It’s that time again. Time to start our New Partner List for 2018.
Please note: We start a new partner list each year – that list is compiled ONLY by the donations that come in online and through the mail. If you currently receive our daily motivations you will continue to get them daily, even if you don’t remain a partner.
Our 2018 list will begin with January 2018 donors.
IF you sent a donation in January and did not include your email, we will not be able to add you to our 2018 Partner List, therefore make sure when you donate that you include your email. Please don’t assume we know your email, it is all kept online, and we don’t have access to your personal information unless you give it to us.
Many of the donors who give monthly did NOT include an email on their donation form…so if you are one of those make sure we have your current email.
If you remain a partner in 2018, you will continue to get the daily Appoint My Days & notices or Partner Calls. You will also continue to get our monthly notes and replay recording from those prayer calls.
If you do not get the partner emails from this point on, let us know how you gave this year, either online or by check, give us your email and we will make sure you are added to our list.
Thank you so much for being partners with this ministry. God is moving us ALL forward into the best times of our lives…and I am excited AND I am thankful to go there with you.
If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. – Henry Ford
