The Lord gave me a vision while I was in worship and I saw it so clearly while I was caught up in the spirit. A multitude of Believers were gathered together and everyone had their hands and heads lifted to the heaven. It was a beautiful sight because all were in one accord. I even saw little girls and little boys, practically babies, extending their hearts of worship and praise to the Lord. Many wept with burdened and broken hearts as they worshiped. And as everyone pressed in and warred in worship, The Lord said to me, “Do you see the spirit of heaviness that is rising to heaven with their praise? Do you see the atmosphere being realigned in the praise being released?” As I watched in my spirit it became very clear to me that there is a very specific exchange that the Lord is making in this day. The Lord is again inviting us into His presence and He is releasing a garment of praise that will usher ALL people into the throne-room to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. As we step into this garment many things will fall off of us automatically, one of which the Lord desires most specifically is the spirit of heaviness that has plagued the body in the last season and is seeking to sabotage us and stop us from pressing into our new place. The Word teaches that the Lord inhabits the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). The word inhabits means to live or reside in; to be present in; to fill, as in a place. So as we praise the Lord in this season we are guaranteed and can be encouraged of the guarantee of His presence.
And Father says to His children today, “I Am making an exchange and even as you have walked in anguish fear and despair I desire for you to release that yoke to Me and receive from Me the garment of praise. Today I say to you, receive the exchange, receive the garment [expressive] of praise and release to Me your heavy, burdened, and failing spirit that has long been ruled by the heaviness of despair. In making this exchange you shall be given a new name. Your name shall be My righteous ones and you will be an expression of your God; lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God and it will all be for My glory. Yes this is the season of My glory; I will display and establish My glory in you and through you. And yes even the babes will worship as I Am pouring out My Spirit on ALL flesh. Your flesh will be stretched so that you are in perfect conformity to My will. Even the flesh that has tried to resist My Spirit will be defiantly stretched for it is a season like no other; My purpose shall stand and My glory shall overtake you. So come in, come in, enter into My gates praising and worshiping because you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. I am Faithful to bring these things to pass even as your eyes and your heart fails you know that I am He who has called you and I will help you. Look to Me for there is no other help in this day. Humble yourselves and be transformed by the Word and the Spirit. So lift up your heads and hands oh ye gates and be lifted up so that the King of Glory might come in. Worship, worship, worship and praise, praise, praise and I will come in. There is a move of God that will commence when My people offer up to Me the sacrifice of praise and come into one accord. This is that time; let the sound come unto Me and I will respond, I will respond. To those who are unfamiliar this is a strange sound, a sound that has been birthed in despair and disillusionment; it is the sound of those who have decided that they have no other choice but to praise Me until they get their breakthrough. It is a defiant and violent sound that knows that the Kingdom suffers violence but the violent must take, take, take, it all by force. Have you not desired a response, says the Lord. Then you must enter in, cloaked in the garment of praise and I will respond to your sacrifice and obedience with the supernatural release of My provision for this new place.”
Psalm 69:32 “The humble will see their God at work and be glad. Let all who seek God’s help be encouraged.”
