“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” – Isaiah 40:31
“When the time is right, I, the Lord, will make it happen.” – Isaiah 60:22
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” – Galatians 6:9
I know the battle is intense right now. I know you’re being held to the fire on both sides. Now is not the time to jump ship and get off course though. Now is the time to seek the Lord through it, let Him change your heart, and see what He’s trying to show you. The Lord has been refining us, and the enemy has been trying to stop us. But today I come with good news! The kairos time is here — the blessing and harvest time is here! The enemy always seems to fight the hardest when you are about to level up or step into new blessings and plans the Lord has for you. Now is the very time to press in harder, fight even stronger, and get on the offensive team. Fast, pray, seek, and then fast, pray, and seek even more.
The Lord isn’t coming back for a bride with spots or wrinkles. The Lord is coming back for a bride who stood their ground and rose up to spread the Good News. We are warriors and soldiers for the best Kingdom that has ever been — the Lord’s Kingdom. If you know any true thing about Jesus, you know the ending of the story… the part where Jesus and His disciples WIN! We don’t need to live in fear and we don’t need to get panicked from watching the news. We can turn off the news, get into the Word, seek the Lord’s face, and fully and completely trust and follow what He says. This is why the Word says we walk by faith not by sight. We have to deny our flesh and CHOOSE to fight the good fight of faith. This is why we cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We need to know that we know that we know the Word.
As my sweet friend Angela so recently said: we have not missed our blessing. The Lord is bringing it around again and all we have to do is seize the moment and receive it! It’s going to be scary in the natural. If it wasn’t, the Lord wouldn’t get the credit for it. The devil will absolutely try and stop it with everything he’s got, because he knows the power we hold with our authority in Jesus. Satan knows what the Lord is about to do, and the devil is fighting with every last string to try and steal it from the world. I’m here to tell you now is not the time to jump ship. Now is the very time to press in like never before, fight the good fight of faith, and remind Satan where he belongs — under your feet! Hallelujah!

At 19 years old, Hannah joined the Army. After moving around the country, getting a divorce and losing what seemed like everything, she landed back where God wanted her in Ohio, even though she fought the whole way. She is now in charge of the prayer team at her church and seeks the Lord with all she’s got.
Hannah is married and a RN, but works as a stay-at-home mom to her daughter, Isabella, and her son, Grayson.
She loves to hike, travel, drink coffee, and talk about Jesus. Hannah also has a heart to create a home and life in which she can be a safe place for the hurting and the broken.
To her readers, Hannah says, “I believe that God set every single one of you reading this apart, for such a time as this. It is my hope and prayer that God would use the words I say to change your life in a way you and I never thought possible!”
