The Lord took me to Psalm 91 tonight. It is alongside Jeremiah 29:11-13 (both Mouse and my life verse) in terms of scripture that has been meditated on with great length. I’ve prayed Psalm 91′s prayer many times over the years committing the chapter in its entirety to memory. Yet tonight I felt the Lord blowing on this Word with a Rhema emphasis, that this is a prophetic declaration to be spoken by His body this year.

I sensed the Word of the Lord come to me ‘It is so easy to access My favor, if you will just invest My Word into you. My people have grown anemic in My Word, and I want them on a steady diet rich in nutrients and power, by digesting My Word. My body has been swinging like a pendulum where some have become full of the Word in their head, but empty of Me in their heart, and others have become focused on My gifts and seeking My glory, yet lacking in the knowledge of who I am. Yet there are those who seek Me with their whole heart and fill their mind with My goodness who I will reveal things to that will astound them this year!
This is a year where I will remove my little ones from their nest, and they will learn to fly. I will not promise all lessons to be easy, however I will allow them to develop the muscles to allow them to soar above their circumstances, and people will look and see the Son shining down on them with favor. This year is a year of renewed acceleration, and exhilaration as you walk in victory when I come on the scene in your circumstances says the Lord. This will be a year for some where they find themselves enrolled in the school of hard knocks, but I enroll you to only celebrate your graduation. Know My Word – Hebrews 12, I do these things to allow you to soar so high in the Spirit and in My will activated in your life.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
This year, My remnant who hear My voice and seek My guidance will find Me, and I will give them rest under my arm of protection, provision and safety. I will grant you rest, those of you weary from years previously spent toiling with great strength, crying out for respite.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
As your papers, and news media, and even some of my own leaders are preaching impending doom & certain destruction, I will yet rescue you individually. Your cries are not too weak to reach my ears, and I am a compassionate God who loves His bride, call to Me, and see that I will protect you in the midst of chaos and calamities around you. Repent of godlessness, and return to Me with your full heart.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
You will see My supernatural hand of intervention in things that appear to be heading with certain speed in one direction, and I will come in and change the direction as My Spirit blows on your weakened condition and circumstance. This year the thing that has terrified you will be something I will allow you to possess and wield against your enemy, just as I granted David Goliath’s sword – the same sword that was used to terrify and subdue the people. (1 Samuel 21:8-9). Not only will you see Me as your personal intercessor this year, and deliverer, but you will see Me bring honor to you from your sustained trust and hope in My goodness that will abound forth. For it is I AM who will do these things says the Lord your God.
