Doug Addison

This is a special time when God is sending new angels to you! How do you know and catch what God is doing? Let me give you some deeper insight on this supernatural subject.

Being aware of angels
In the Christmas story in Luke chapter 2, the shepherds were terrified because an angel of the Lord appeared to them. Maybe you’ve noticed angels that way, but my guess is that most of us have not had such a powerful, in-your-face experience. Angels don’t usually come with blaring trumpets, splitting the sky.

I have found God’s angels to be much subtler. They can cloak themselves so that they don’t get the glory that belongs rightfully to God. I have learned over the years how to become more aware of the spiritual atmosphere around me, and this includes being aware of different angels.

Most of the time God will help you be aware of angels by understanding their function. You can notice an angel’s purpose by what they do. Here’s an example.

Angel called Love
In 2009 I had several dramatic angelic encounters while in South Africa. Since that time in many of my events, an Angel of Love will show up. I don’t necessarily see this angel with my natural eyes. But I am spiritually aware enough to know that an angel is present. Because of the atmosphere that Love brings, the room is suddenly filled with an overwhelmingly thick and tangible presence of God’s love. Whenever this occurs I have noticed that even after we dismiss the meeting for a lunch break, no one moves. That is a sure sign that God is present!

New angels assigned to you
In November, God showed me that angels are being reassigned right now based on your new assignments.

There are many different kinds of angels. Some are specifically assigned to you and your family. Some will be assigned for the rest of your life, while others are those who are on assignment only for a season. “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” Hebrews 1:14 NIV

Partner with God
When the shepherds in Luke 2 experienced God’s angels, they did something remarkable afterwards: they responded. The shepherds said, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see,” and then “they spread the word,” Luke 2:15 and 17.

How do you respond? Ask God to show you how to become more in-tune with the spiritual atmosphere around you. Take notes on what you feel and experience when you sense the presence of God.

If you haven’t been aware of angels, don’t worry. They most often cloak themselves so that you are not distracted by their glory and miss what they are bringing to you. God’s angels are sent to you daily to help you in some way.

Learn More
If you would like to read more about angels, I have fourteen chapters in a new book called Angel Stories by Jonathan Nixon. It is a compilation of many angel encounters and you can check it out by clicking here.

Harness Your Thoughts for a Powerful Destinyhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/12/harness-your-thoughts-for-a-powerful-destiny-2/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/12/harness-your-thoughts-for-a-powerful-destiny-2/#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 17:06:46 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7616 …Read Full Post]]> Creative PowerHarness Your Thoughts for a Powerful Destiny

Doug Addison

There is a clear connection between what you think about yourself and reaching your highest calling. Let’s look at three key ways to harness your thoughts to bring dynamic change resulting in a powerful destiny and a better life.

First, we need to unpack the biggest destiny-derailer: Negative thoughts.

You are not your negative thought
Here is what I mean. Negative forces want you to believe bad things about yourself like: “I’m depressed. I’m worthless. I can’t change. I’m stupid. I’m ugly. I’m such a failure…” the list could go on and on.

It is important to realize that your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are situational and you can change them. The reality is that feelings and behaviors are not who you really are. You may struggle with your thoughts, but that is not your identity in Christ. Most people don’t see that there is a direct connection between the way they view themselves and their destiny.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7a, NKJV

Many of the thoughts and behaviors we battle daily have a root cause: something we have done, knowingly or unknowingly, or things that were done to us. Healing these emotional wounds can be a process. If you commit yourself to the journey, you can overcome them. It is part of your destiny to find healing and live healed.

Keys to powerful positive thoughts and destiny:

1. Diffuse the power of negative thoughts by inviting God in
My life turned around for the good when I realized that I spent too much time beating myself up for having negative or lustful thoughts. I remember the day that I invited God to walk with me like a loving father would. I prayed and asked for an extra measure of grace to get me through each day. Surprisingly, when I stopped focusing on the negative thoughts and talked to God about them as they were happening, they began to lose their power over me and eventually became less of a driving force in my thought life.

 2. Don’t beat yourself up
Another key to recovery is not beating yourself up. When you invite God each moment into your imperfection, he is not surprised by your thoughts or behavior. God loves you just the same. Be gentle with yourself while you change. Learn to enjoy your life even though you are not yet perfected. Progress toward your destiny is what you want.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 NIV

3. Don’t live in the recovery room
We live in a therapeutic society with a diagnosis for just about everything. When you start worrying about your dog suffering from Separation Anxiety Disorder, you know there is an over-focus on labeling people and situations. There is value in recognizing negative patterns. I am not trying to downplay the effects of pain, addiction and abuse.

But we need to find a way to identify the negative pattern, get healed and leave the recovery room so your identity is in the new life God has given you, not the old life that tried to destroy you.

These keys will help you take daily steps straight to your destiny. Believe it!

Blessings,

Prophetic Word: Time for a Sudden Turnaround!http://dougaddison.com/2014/12/prophetic-word-time-for-a-sudden-turnaround/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/12/prophetic-word-time-for-a-sudden-turnaround/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:08:05 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7566 design-17 copyProphetic Word: Time for a Sudden Turnaround!
Doug Addison
December 2014

God is releasing something powerfully new starting in December. He is revealing the assignments that are coming to you in 2015. Watch for prophetic dreams and words of confirmation that will give greater insight into the promotions you received recently. You will find yourself getting deeper, better results with less effort as you enter into God’s rest. It’s a time to pull back and look at what happened in 2014, as there are clues that will give you more understanding. Strategic new alliances are coming to you that will help you get to a new level.

11/11 turnaround
I release Daily Prophetic Words that I get a month in advance and I often do not remember them once we load them onto my website and social media. My Daily Prophetic Word on 11/11 was, “Expect to see repayment in all types of ways as God is giving new recognition and favor to your efforts.”

We are entering into a time of extended repayment for the extreme losses we have experienced over the past seven years (since 2008). It will take effort, and in some cases a battle, to get it. So don’t back down.

My ministry has taken some financial losses, and I also lost many key relationships and favor over the past few years. We are now seeing a rapid repayment coming through many different streams.

Proverbs 13:12 The Message
Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.

This is a time of “sudden good breaks” and life-turning events, in other words, rapid turn around!

East and West connection
I woke up from 1:00–3:00 a.m. on November 11 (11/11). God showed me that there was a changing of the guard over us. Angels are being reassigned right now based on your new assignments. There are angels who have been assigned to you and your family. Some will be assigned for the rest of your life, while others are those who are on assignment only for a season.

Hebrews 1:14 NIV
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

God is also assigning angels to bring unity in the spiritual realm to the United States. At 1:00 a.m. on 11/11, I saw a new angel now assigned to the West Coast of the US. The angel was sitting in a chair, facing east, not saying a word, but watching. I knew this angel was a watcher (Daniel 4). This angel has been assigned to watch and call things in for us from the East.

Psalm 103:12 NIV
“as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

Some people in the East have looked at the West Coast with words of judgment. Cities like Hollywood, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Seattle might seem like the least likely places for God to move but that is exactly what He has in mind. God is releasing the West Coast to be a birthing place of another revival greater than the Jesus People Movement of the 1970s (the last major revival in the US).

Spiritual constipation
I was speaking at the East Coast Elijah List Prophetic Conference in Maryland with Jane Hamon and Steve Schultz. As prophet Jane Hamon was speaking, the Holy Spirit spoke to me that many people are suffering from spiritual constipation.

There are things that are backed up and a release is desperately needed. This includes things like unanswered prayers, unfulfilled prophecies, healings, and financial breakthroughs, to name a few.

In my case, the Holy Spirit told me that I was prophetically constipated. If you follow my ministry and blog you will see that I release a lot of prophetic words: daily, weekly, and monthly, usually too much to articulate. So how could I be prophetically backlogged?

Then I remembered there were a handful of words and dreams that I got for certain people that I had not shared. I stood up immediately at the conference and went to the back to “relieve myself,” so to speak. I texted as many as I could and posted some on the Internet. Notice that it was only a few areas where I was urged to make adjustments. Small steps done in obedience release greater blessing than we may realize!

When I returned to my seat Jane Hamon had me stand up while she gave me a life-changing prophetic word unlike anything I have gotten in decades! This is a prophetic word for others as well. What have you not completed or shared that God has spoken to you to do? No matter how small it may seem to you, do it or release it and see what happens!

Treasures hidden in darkness
While at the conference I got several prophetic words that further confirm the new time we are in.

Isaiah 45:3 NIV
I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

I have heard this verse so many times as people have prayed it but I am declaring it right now. God is giving insight for “secret place” riches of wisdom and revelation.

The Vault of Heaven is now open
In December of 2011 I had a spiritual experience in which I heard a tumbler lock, like the kind from a big bank vault, click into place.

I heard God say that the vault door is not just unlocked but “It is now open.” Watch as wisdom, revelation, strategies, and finances for the Kingdom open at a greater level, including finances for new media and creative business projects. This is a direct result of God reallocating resources and finances from people who are not currently sharing them with the Kingdom.

Hoarding the wood dream
I had a prophetic dream in November that I was on a beach with a group of people who had gathered there to wait for something new. We needed to build a fire so we gathered a small amount of wood and lit it. I blew on it and a long deep prophetic wind came out of me that ignited the wood into a small fire. We got the “new fire” going but needed more wood. We asked other groups who had an abundance of wood—even extra lying around—but no one would give us any. These groups represent individuals, churches, and businesses that have the calling to help start new Kingdom projects but are hoarding the wood for themselves out of fear.

This is a prophetic word right now: there are groups starting new things and need Kingdom resources.

There are people and groups that really need to give into something new. This may be a comparatively small investment for them, yet it will ignite many and even release promises to the givers as well. God is igniting a flame on Kingdom projects for new media, businesses, and radical new churches.

Get ready for 2015 to bring a major shift. God is bringing fulfillment to the promises we thought were lost. Getting a clear vision is a key to major turnaround and will help you see the breakthrough that you need. God is releasing a new way to do things for you that will help maximize your impact with less effort.

Unity is so important right now! We need to agree together for change! Bless and do not judge. Talk to God about what offends you and release it to Him. Ask Him for His perspective about the conflicts you face. I agree with Heaven over the breakthrough that you need in your life!

Blessings,

Slow Down to Love Othershttp://dougaddison.com/2014/12/slow-down-to-love-others/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/12/slow-down-to-love-others/#comments Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:30:15 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7531 relax, keep calm, enjoy life and other motivational lifestyle reSlow Down to Love Others
Doug Addison

As the pace of life ramps up this time of year, how do you stay peaceful with all the excitement of Christmas? Here’s how to slow down and then from a place of peace, reach out to others in love.

Slowing down… 
While the Christmas season is about the Prince of Peace coming to us, sometimes we get too busy to recognize God’s peace. For many of us, it is difficult to step back and consider the person in front of us when our to-do lists are never-ending.

But here’s how I find peace and slow down:

1. Deep breathing 
Take at least five deep breaths. You can change the way you feel by the way you move your body. Make a habit of walking with your shoulders back and breathing more deeply and your emotions will begin to have more of a positive response.

Sometimes I breathe while thinking about a peaceful verse like, “Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you!” John 20:21 NIV

Also, most people do not breathe deeply enough. When you take a deep breath, be sure to allow your stomach to rise instead of your chest. This allows oxygen into the lower area of your lungs and goes directly to the area of your brain that stimulates creativity.

2. Two-minute vacation
Take time for yourself with God even if it’s just a few minutes. That two-minute vacation in your spirit can bring an amazing download of peace. Quiet yourself to listen to God speaking to you. God usually speaks to us in a faint impression or small voice inside.

3. Turn on the tunes
Listen to positive, uplifting music. Music can set the mood or change your emotional condition. If I want more energy, I tend to listen to upbeat songs to start my day. I listen to slower, deeper worship music when I want to relax.

Helping others by listening
When we can settle ourselves to into a peace, the atmosphere of stress starts to fade and we can hear God, connect with others, and see where God wants us to spread His love by helping them. One way to help others and love them, is by listening to them.

Be aware of people’s needs
People tend to give one another clues about how they feel, what they value, or what they need through the way they talk, their body language, and facial expressions. But most people are not aware of it because they are not trained to perceive it and they only listen with their ears. Our goal in life is to be an encourager of other people by listening with our heart with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Most people don’t like to listen to others, yet they value being listened to. The ability to listen is really an art that, through practice, increases your ability to focus on what a person is really saying.

Jesus listened and loved
Quite often people came to Jesus and asked a question. His answer spoke to their hidden need or revealed their hidden motive. To pinpoint this, Jesus often asked them a question back. Too often we launch into our own story, advice or latest teaching without regard to the needs of the person approaching us.

Let’s listen from a place of peacefulness to bring hope, healing and love to those all around us this Christmas season. Go and have fun, the Prince of Peace is with you!

Blessings,

Positive Change by G-Force: Grace, Gratitude and Generosityhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/11/positive-change-by-g-force-grace-gratitude-and-generosity/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/positive-change-by-g-force-grace-gratitude-and-generosity/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 10:00:10 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7092 Gratitude AttitudePositive Change by G-Force: Grace, Gratitude and Generosity  
Doug Addison

Many of us get the chance to be with family and friends today. These moments are perfect opportunities to grow in our destiny.

And even when we make positive change towards our destiny, I know personally the holidays can be rough when we do not have some of our special people around. But, there is still a way to experience joy in every moment and circumstance of your day…

Encouragement
Let me tell you how to not only bounce back from losses, but come back even stronger by taking advantage of the continual opportunities that God places in front of you for positive change. Here are three tools I have used to transform my life that will help you today.

1. Grace
Grace is cutting people slack, instead of cutting them down. It allows us to forgive others. Grace helps us slow down enough to listen to others and understand what they have been through and what they are feeling. Grace helps us develop patience and greater character that will set us apart.

God’s love for us is given as a free gift. This is often referred to as the grace of God. And we are encouraged to show this same grace to others. “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.” Matthew 7:12a NIV

  • Grace Challenge: Where is your opportunity today to offer grace to someone?

2. Gratitude
When you have gratitude flowing in your life, you find ways to love and connect with others because you are grateful for all that you have received from God.

Gratitude is a sense of indebtedness to God and those around you. You can never pay back God for your life, so you practice thankfulness by freely giving to others. Gratitude allows you to see the best in each situation and to be thankful for every part of your life.

The apostle Paul talks about how important it is to be grateful:

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV

  • Gratitude Challenge: Even when it is difficult, what is positive about your situation? What can you give thanks for?

3. Generosity
Generosity goes way beyond the spiritual principle of giving. You may have heard it said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35b.

As this principle takes root in your life, you will move from giving in order to get, to giving because it is good. You will come to a place where you give because it helps others.

  • Generosity Challenge: Be generous with your love today.

Sowing and reaping delay factor
Grace, gratitude and generosity are an important part of a spiritual principle: “…a man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7b

Most people are not aware of how much this principle influences them, because there is a delay factor involved. What you do on a day-to-day basis typically will not affect your life until later. This is one of the quickest ways to see positive change in your life.

Start intentionally, giving away your love and grace with gratitude, being as generous as you can. Doing it consistently, you will begin to see people treat you differently, and things will start flowing your way.

Blessings,

doug-sig

Why Am I Not Getting Healed or Financially Blessed?http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/why-am-i-not-getting-healed-or-financially-blessed/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/why-am-i-not-getting-healed-or-financially-blessed/#comments Thu, 20 Nov 2014 10:00:42 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7031 Blessing, Curse Green Road Sign Over Dramatic Blue Sky and CloudWhy Am I Not Getting Healed or Financially Blessed?
Doug Addison

Have you noticed that there are a lot of prayers for healing and yet there is not an abundance of miracles happening at the level we need. A lot of giving is happening but the financial reaping has not come up to the level of the giving. It is not because of lack of faith or the need for a certain formula.

God spoke to me recently, giving me some insight into things that hold people back from receiving healing and financial breakthrough. I want to share this much-needed revelation with you. It is what helped me get healed of Lyme disease and brought a radical financial turnaround for my ministry.

Surprising revelation
Have you noticed a spirit of accusation dominating our media and even the Church for the past few years? Christians are accusing other people (Christian and non-Christian alike) of lots of things, with theological and political differences adding even more fuel to fire. Listen, it is okay to disagree but when anger or hatred is involved, we are agreeing with darkness and not God’s higher will for people.

Overall many people have fallen into judging others to the point that we have lost effectiveness in sharing God’s love and authority in prayer. We have become so used to judging, we do not even realize when we are doing it.

Jesus said,Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Luke 6:37-38 NIV

Give grace
Most people associate these verses in Luke with giving money, and the principle does apply. But more importantly, the context is about extending grace and forgiveness to others. I was shocked when I read this in context and realized that forgiveness and judgment play a huge part in receiving “…a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over… into your lap.” Luke 6:38

“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” Matthew 5:23-24

Bless by speaking good
As we move from judging into blessing, we open the Heavens over us to receive a full measure of revelation. This lifestyle opens the Heavens over you to hear God accurately and consistently. This is a strategy that God has given me and over the years I have lived this lifestyle of blessing and love. It has opened the Heavens over me to hear God.

Bless and not curse
You do not have to agree with someone to love and forgive them. God is releasing a spirit of reconciliation to offset the strong negative spirit of accusation. “Bless and do not curse.” Romans 12:14 NIV. We MUST break this negative spirit of accusation. As we do, it will bring more breakthrough and healing.

How do we bless and not curse?
Here are some things I have done to make sure I am blessing someone in my own heart:

·      Check your own words as you go about your day. If you mess up, recognize it quickly and move on. We get lots of chances to start over and do it right the next time.

·      Notice when you might be listening or saying something which empowers the enemy.

·      Try a seven-day fast from all negative thoughts and talk.

·      Ask God to bless your mouth to help you speak only life-giving words.

·      Declare that your own mouth will bless and not curse.

Here’s a prayer that I use: “If my tongue has cursed me, knowingly or unknowingly, I ask forgiveness.”

If you need a breakthrough for healing or finances, ask God to reveal to you if any of these areas apply, then respond. Watch as new revelation and strategies from Heaven start flowing to you.

Blessings,

How to Know God’s Timing for Your Destinyhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/11/how-to-know-gods-timing-for-your-destiny/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/how-to-know-gods-timing-for-your-destiny/#comments Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:00:20 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6663 Time ManagementHow to Know God’s Timing for Your Destiny
Doug Addison

When we talk about destiny, a question that often comes up is knowing the timing for walking out your destiny in God. I have found that one thing that can limit the pursuit of our destiny is what we think we can actually accomplish and when.

I realize that this can be a dangerous message. On one hand, you need to be careful not to focus on your own strength to force the changes into your life. God must be your source of strength and energy. On the other hand, you must take action, be proactive and move forward, or you will run the risk of becoming stagnant and getting stuck.

A difficult part of finding your destiny is knowing what to focus on at any given time. Here are

Learning time
First, there may be periods of time in your life when God is teaching you lessons to help you grow deeper in spiritual maturity. It may seem as though He is holding you back, but in reality He is training you. It is important to recognize these times so that you can work with God and not strive to accomplish something that is not time for you to do yet.

Testing time
Second, it helps to be aware of times when God is testing you and wants you to move forward. God brings situations around where YOU have to take proactive steps.

Strength-training time
Third is the aspect of spiritual warfare when you are pursuing the next steps God has for you and you are on target, but dark forces try to hold you back. You have direction from God but obstacles surface. So figuring out the proper timing is very crucial.

Balance
The point I am trying to make is that you cannot just go all-out trying to get whatever you want and assume it is God’s will and the right time in your life. Your destiny will unfold over time, and it will happen in God’s timing. Be sure though that you are holding up your end of the deal by pursuing it.

One major setback tactic
I meet people all the time who are afraid to move forward because they don’t want to make a mistake or get out of God’s timing. If you are afraid to move forward, then be aware that a negative force may be trying to hold you back by scaring you into believing that you are not in God’s timing.

Getting out of these negative patterns will require change. It is similar to training for a sport or learning to play an instrument. You would not be able to do it well if you tried just a few times. It will require conditioning yourself and practice. Soon it will become automatic and much easier.

Encouragement
Knowing God’s timing does take some figuring out, but the important part is allowing God to help you walk it out. Your destiny in God is an exciting journey! Keep on moving closer!

Blessings,

Destiny Stealer: Dying Too Muchhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/11/destiny-stealer-dying-too-much/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/destiny-stealer-dying-too-much/#comments Thu, 13 Nov 2014 10:00:56 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6554 New Life, Old Life Green Road Sign Over Dramatic Clouds and Sky.Destiny Stealer: Dying Too Much
Doug Addison

There is a sneak attack that Satan uses to keep you from your destiny: getting you to die way too much by overreacting to your sin, which kills your passion. It can even kill your God-given passion.

A powerful, transformed life
To experience your destiny through a radically transformed life, start with renewed thinking. It is interesting that while writing about finding God’s will for your life, the Apostle Paul says we must first change our thinking by renewing our minds.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 NIV

Die to your old sin nature
The process of renewing your mind involves a principle called dying to yourself. There are several verses in the Bible that talk about dying to the sinful nature or “old self” and allowing God to live through us. This is a necessary process for transforming your life. However, it is also a misunderstood principle.

Satan wants us to take this to the extreme and believe that we must die to all of our heart desires and plans that we have.

Did you die to all desires?
In reality, dying to ourselves does not mean that we cannot have any desires or ideas of our own. If that were the case, you would become a robot for God. God wants us to be his sons and daughters and to have authority on the earth.

Creativity from God
God created the Heavens and the earth and we are created in His image (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, we all have the ability to be co-creators expanding His Kingdom on earth. Whether you realize this or not, we are all creative. You have a God-given ability and passion inside to create things around you. You have a built-in desire to contribute to things greater than yourself, and be a part of changing the world around you through God’s unlimited love and power.

I often jokingly say that God was trying to prophesy this through Bruce Willis in the old movie “Die Hard.” God wants to give us good things and once our motives are right, He can do this without limit. It is no wonder that so many people don’t know their destiny; it may be because they have died to any desire they once had.

Dying to yourself means that your heart has the right intentions because not all of our desires are necessarily from God. I remember when I was young I learned how to spell the word Christian. A lady told me it is spelled “Christ” plus the acronym i-a-n, which stands for “I am nothing.” I grew up believing the lie that I was not allowed to be anything. I realize now that God wants us to be His creation. It will require dying to our sinful desires but also living a life full of His creativeness.

Revived desires
When you renew your mind, you are powerful! And when you focus on God, finding happiness in Him, your passions will be revived, even[NE1]  after a harsh enemy sneak attack designed to kill your desires and passions. “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4

Desires are needed
God will give us a passion or strong desire to fulfill something in our lives. Passion is important because it brings about a divinely-inspired drive to accomplish things for God. And while it is not good to die to all desires, we also need balance.

For example, we do not want to be too prideful but on the other extreme, we do not want false humility. We often quote the Bible verse, “He must become greater and I must become less…” John 3:30. The problem with false humility is when you try to become less without allowing God’s character and gifts in you to become greater, you wind up empty.

What to do
Hold onto your God-given passions and desires. Let God remind you of what they are if it has been a long time since you died to them. You have permission to be passionate and creative! Your desires are an essential tool designed to lead you to the heart of your destiny.

Blessings,

Prophetic Word: Time to Recover It All!http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/prophetic-word-time-to-recover-it-all/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/11/prophetic-word-time-to-recover-it-all/#comments Wed, 12 Nov 2014 08:30:01 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=7007 nov pwProphetic Word: Time to Recover it All!
Doug Addison
November 2014

November is a time when God is building your faith and repairing the walls of doubt from past failures. A new plan from Heaven is being released over you but you will need to battle and be assertive to get it. God is continuing to reveal and restore lost prophetic promises and inheritances.

Repayment for losses over the past seven years is here NOW and will continue over the next few months. Expect some extreme signs from God to know you are on the right track. Love and new freedom are coming to you. I have released several prophetic words recently about generational inheritances and repayment being restored to you. It is starting now!

Eleventh month
November is the eleventh month of the calendar and the eleventh book of the Bible is 1 Kings that begins with a transition and generational battle. King David was dying and there was a battle for his position. God divinely caused a supernatural generational inheritance to shift to his young son, Solomon, who had wisdom. Watch for changes in leadership and a greater level of Heavenly wisdom to be released.

Reconcile 2008
On Sunday, October 19, I awoke at 5:20 a.m. with an angel in our house. God spoke to me that He is currently reconciling the books in Heaven, so to speak, from 2008.  Not just in 2008, but God is reconciling the past seven years as well. There are adjustments and repayments due to people because the enemy overplayed his hand. God is a just God and He has not forgotten you.

To respond, I spent several hours going through every entry in my journal from 2008, making a list of things that never took place, were stolen or delayed. I was quite surprised at how many things I found and had to do it several times. It pays to journal regularly.

Declare your repayment
After 2008, our ministry went into over $40,000 in debt, which lasted until 2013. We lost a lot during that time, paying interest and having to work really hard to compensate for the losses! Even though we paid the debt off, I asked God just two weeks ago to supernaturally repay us $40,000.

Within one week, we got a strategy to offer one thousand new people our Internet training and we made over $40,000 in four days!! We had run specials in the past but have never had this level of response. This was an anointed breakthrough! What do you need repayment for? Press in and take action.

Family inheritance dream
I had a dream in October that many people and I were at an amusement park standing in a beautiful, crystal clear river like a wading pool of flowing water.

Many people were unaware that they were dropping jewelry and clothing into the pool. A machine would come through and rake up all the lost items. The items were waiting to be reclaimed. I went to the lost and found to help get back what had been lost.

The dream shows that there are lost spiritual inheritances, callings, and prophetic promises that God is storing up, waiting for you to reclaim them. This is a season to recover it all!

Ebola is a terrorist attack
I have had so many prophetic dreams and words over the past month revealing some of the covert attacks of the enemy. Ebola is just another one of many attacks of the enemy trying to get you off balance with fear. The demonic realms want to remove your peace. It is time to fly above it!!

I was at the Cleveland, Ohio airport on October 13, the same exact time Amber Vinson, the nurse from Dallas infected with Ebola, boarded and flew to Dallas/Fort Worth. My flight from Cleveland to Dallas was at the same exact time but on a different airline.

I had a dream on August 26 about Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and Ohio. In the dream things were delayed but everything was working out fine. Everything is going to work out fine. We must let go of fear!!! This dream and being at the airport at the same time were prophetic signs that God is way bigger than these types of attacks and knows your needs.

Strongman dream
I had a dream in October in which God revealed a major plan of the enemy against leaders. I was watching a boxing match. In the ring were two large men. One was a leader that I recognized but did not know his name. Although he was big, he was out of shape. He was once a great fighter but had not been in the ring for years.

His opponent was a very large, physically fit, dark-figured strongman. I knew he was evil. While the leader was not paying attention, the strongman opened a case and pulled out a special “boxing glove of death,” putting it on his right hand.

I knew that with one blow of this death glove, the other boxer would be taken out. I began screaming to the leader to watch out. But the leader was a bit arrogant and overly confident.

The evil man took a hard swing, just missing the leader by a fraction. The second punch missed the leader too, but I knew that things were not going to turn out well and we had to stop it. So I sounded the alarm.

This is another attack of the enemy right now to take out people who are not expecting it and unaware of what is coming against them. I am sounding the alarm to pray for leaders, asking God to step in and have mercy.

Promotions and major shifting
This time of year, God brings a large number of spiritual promotions. Last year at Yom Kippur, God spoke to me that more people were promoted in the spirit than ever before in history.

This year there were many promotions but some people have also lost their positions for not using their gifts and showing love. I had several prophetic dreams and spiritual experiences where I was shown that October was a time of reconciling in Heaven.

Many people are not using their greater gifts and callings so their assignments are being removed and given to others. I realize Romans 11:29 says the gifts are irrevocable, but the anointing and assignments can be shifted to others. King Saul and David is one of many examples of this shift.

I awoke at 3:04 a.m. and wept for nearly an hour. We do not want to rejoice when others lose out. When one member of the Body of Christ suffers, we all suffer. I asked for mercy instead. As a result of this shift in Heaven, there will be a large number of people and leaders shifting positions and changing jobs.

Like the parable of the ten virgins (Matthew 25:1-13), God is promoting those with oil in their lamps who are ready for this next movement of God.

Land and business battles
This may not be for everyone, so pray through this: if you are holding onto or battling over property or businesses, make a decision to step up or step out. The battle over property and houses is weighing many people down.

If you know it is God speaking to you about this, ask for a confirmation to step up and stay in the battle. But many may want to consider stepping out, because in doing so there will be a new breath of fresh air and God will repay your losses.

Don’t use logic here, you must hear God’s voice if you plan to stay in the battle. I keep hearing the words: Fire sale!! In some cases, people need to get out of connections to the past!

Take-away
I saw the word “Reconfigure.” It is time to reconfigure things but many people do not know where to start.  As I was reading the word “reconfigure,” it turned into the phrase “I can figure.”

God has given you everything you need to get through this time in your life. This is a major transitional time but be confident that you will not only make it through, you will also come out the other side in better shape.

The season has shifted over us all! Do not expect things to go the way they used to. But when you do get attacked, have faith to expect and ask for the opposite in any bad situation. Ask for extreme repayment!

Blessings,
