I saw this amazing photo from storm chaser and photographer Brandon Montgomery, and the Lord spoke to me. He led me to Psalm 18 and Deuteronomy 32. Though torrents of chaos surround you, Beloved, God is arising to defend you and carry you! Even the fiercest of storms are no match for your Dread Champion! He parts the heavens and comes down with dark clouds beneath His feet! Like a Mighty Eagle, He soars on the Wings of the Winds! He has come to save you, Child of God! He has come to show Himself MIGHTY on your behalf!
A dear contributor to Diary of Hope, Angie van Greuning, passed away on 25 August 2021 unexpectedly after years of worshiping through intense pain and many trials. Our hearts are very sore Angie, but we hold onto your wonderful words and encouragements given to us through you from the Lord over many years.
Listen to a wonderful song and live stream she left us that will encourage and uplift your soul. Especially to anyone that recently lost a loved one.
“Lord forgive me for so often reacting to the enemy and the attacks that he launches, without thinking first, and listening to Your heartbeat on a matter. Holy Spirit, please convict me when I try to do this…. to live in response to my Father instead… For Your glory in Jesus name!”
“Because I have learnt to fight for myself and those I love for most of my life, that I never realized that actually I often live in “reaction” to the devil and his attacks on our lives, not realizing just how powerful it must be to rather ALWAYS, not sometimes, choose to ask God what He wants me to do or say, and then rather “responding” to my Father in that moment…”
“Cause if I did that, I would be able to get my Father’s heart in the matter and His perfect will. It’s strange how we can daily submit our character to Him and our lives to Him, but still operate in the natural and not in a Supernatural way…”
“Let’s be encouraged today, that He knows the way we take, and He knows the pitfalls that lay ahead. And He already has a solution, before we knew that we even had a “problem…” and if we live in response to our Father, we will always walk in His perfect will! And if the road you’re walking on, with Him, is rough, know that even this very moment, He will move Heaven and earth, to answer our prayers according to His will…”
“A WORD TO FELLOW “BROKEN ONES…” THOSE WHO GOD HAS CALLED TO BE “DISPENSERS…” IMPARTING “RESURRECTION LIFE…”
“I sense God telling us these things… let’s keep being there for one another. Not one of us can say that they are not, or have not been broken at some time in our lives. There is a reason why we have made it this far. Brokenness comes in many forms. Yet God will meet us where we find ourselves. So we must not give up!”
“Brokenness gives us access to a dimension of God and at the same time, a depth of understanding humanity, that can come in no other way! The most intimate form of love, is to worship the object of our love, Jesus Christ, even with every broken piece of our hearts…”
“Even when it hurts…God is saying to us, don’t dwell on the why’s or the why nots, focus on the Who…! The person of Jesus, who IS STILL worthy of it all!”
“We are so much more valuable in our brokenness, cause God pours that gold refined in the fire, into the cracks, and puts us all together again. But our hearts will still have the “cracks” and patches, and even pieces that have been torn out by the circumstances of life, but only when we have been broken, can we help heal others.”
“Today, lets take every shattered piece of our hearts, and let every piece worship our Faithful God.”
“When we are able to access this dimension of love and worship, we will walk in the Supernatural, cause the natural has failed us. But just watch what God does, when we lay each piece of our brokenness, at the foot of the cross… we will experience the true essence of RESURRECTION LIFE! Because He rose, we WILL rise, and reach those that so many simply don’t understand.”
“WHAT SHOULD THE CHILDREN OF GOD BE DOING….AMIDST ALL THIS FEAR, CHAOS, DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OF THE CORONA VIRUS…?”
“I have seen that our God Himself, is using “evil” as His slave, so it CANNOT become our master! He is RIGHT NOW turning what the enemy meant for evil, into your good! He is still the Master of the universe and has authority over EVERY created “being…” The enemy is a tool in God’s hands to take you to levels in Him, you never even dreamt of!
“In these dark times, what should the children of God be doing…? Keeping our eyes firmly fixed on Jesus! He is the Answer for the world today! It’s time for the children of God to ARISE!! We CANNOT allow a spirit of fear to rule our lives! “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND..!”
“No matter where you and I are right now, this world needs us to SHINE and BE His light, to light the way to Him and His Supernatural ways! No matter how small. Imagine… God made it, so that the light of a small candle, can cause the darkness to flee!! He is calling us all to collectively, BE THAT CANDLE….BE THAT FLAME…and watch what He will do…” 🔥🔥🔥
“He is RIGHT NOW releasing something so powerful into His children who are ARISING, that we will operate on another level of authority. We will not recognise what we see! We will look back at these times and realise, it was actually the “LAUNCHING PAD” for the future of the RISE of the remnant that was forgotten, but God has been training you in the deep, dark and even obscure places and times of your life…
When things are happening in your life and you don’t see a way out. When you feel so weak and in so much pain, that you wonder why you are still here. When you feel your prayers are not being heard, and you want to give up, thinking surely my God has abandoned me…
Sometimes we find ourselves in a dark place, unable to get out of it on our own. Angie shares part of her own story, and how God delivered her from severe depression. She shares some simple actions that has taken her from despair to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and standing in victory. She speaks about worship, reading scripture out load (even if it is only a whisper) and spending time in the presence of Jesus.
Things may seem too broken to be fixed, and each person’s story and experiences are different. But dare to take a small step everyday to take the hand of Christ, who has unimaginably great things planned for you, if only you would trust him and take that first step.
Please read her testimony below…
“God said this to my heart… The enemy is trying to break you, cause ALL of hell knows that My purposes in your life WILL be fulfilled, and he is terrified of you My Warrior Bride, My remnant, that is this very moment rising up out of the ashes, and taking her position and standing at her “post” as part of my great end time army …cause the “fire” you have been going through, has caused you to come forth as PURE gold, shining SO brightly for ALL to see, that the enemy cannot even look in your direction, for My glory is shining in you and through you! For I am your glory and the lifter of your head….”
“We can all draw close to Him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into His very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 (TPT)
“I have placed a “breaker anointing” inside you, for I am using you as a wrecking ball, to take out and crush strongholds of religion and legalism that has robbed My Church of its power! Many things have tried to break you, but they have only served to make you a more powerful “weapon” of mass destruction for My Kingdom purposes!! These things have increased the authority and intensity of the anointing you walk in that destroys and shatters strongholds, just by your very presence!”
I see a great opening into Heaven, a vast expanse of extraordinary light shining down over the earth! As I look up I see pieces of paper made from thin “slices” of gold, it almost looks like gold leaves, and it’s falling down from this “open heaven”… “It’s time for My Glory to cover the earth as the waters cover the sea! These golden “notes” have been written by the very finger of God! And they’re not just falling randomly! Each and every one has a specific destination! No one will fight or scramble to grab as much as they can, I have purposed that each “note” will get to the exact person or situation or challenge that it’s meant to get to!”
Please read the full vision as received by Angie to release God’s heartbeat for us in these times.
If you are feeling broken, discouraged and confused by your current or past circumstances and trials please read this post that Angie received from God to share with you. He has knit you together perfectly in your mother’s womb, you are no accident. He never dropped even one stitch…
He has placed you exactly where He needs you to fulfil the purposes He has for your life, if you keep on walking in obedience, and let Him complete the good work in you.
“You are not in the “place” you are in right now, cause I dropped a stitch in the beautiful tapestry that I am weaving together in your life. You see only the underside. You see what looks to you like a mess. It looks like it’s completely messed up and you see no form. But I see the blueprint, cause I knit it together. I designed the pattern. I am making the “picture” of what your life is meant to be…”
Take courage from this word, read all that He is promising you, rejoice in where you are and where God says he will take you. For He is not a man that He should lie.
The Lord has spoken to Angie so clearly regarding the season we are in now, and how we will get through this confusing time of shaking and sifting, the “what must I do now?” season. “Keep seeking My face when things are shaking in your life. To get to My new level things need to change.” Read more on the very clear instructions to His humble, obedient children. Much more is needed now from His people. Keep standing on the promises and instructions that the Lord has given you. Please read and if it witnesses with your spirit, humbly receive it…
