The Eagle was used to flying, and one day as it visited the ground, it noticed a dark oil coming from its feathers. Thinking that it might be rain, the dark oil continued to seep, when the eagle became annoyed and began to beat its beak on a rock.
Then more dark oil became to seep out all over and the eagle thought that it was loosing its mind, and because of the vexation, began to claw its talons down on the rock.
Covered in dark oil and misunderstood by other birds, it was treated with disgust, because many thought that it was a buzzard; the dark oil covered it, causing its appearance to be unrecognizable.
It could not fly and come down on its prey anymore and was unable to feed itself. It remained in the valley from which it set, thinking it would never be able to get out anymore.
Then suddenly, it noticed other eagles flying in the air, that would come by the valley to drop meat and feed it. The dark colored eagle was grateful. It could not do anything but eat the meat and stay in the valley.
It had seen other remains of eagles that did not survive the dark oil and the valley, hoping that it would not be the eagle’s fate. The eagle was tormented that it had done something wrong or brought about its own demise.
When suddenly the dark oil stopped seeping out of its body. Then within weeks it noticed its beak and talons back. Not realizing that it stopped hurting itself because the dark oil caused it torment, to where it began to turn on itself.
The eagle realized that those eagles that did not get out of the valley, whose remains were still present, were the ones who did not realize that the dark oil would stop, and they went mad thinking they would never make it, so they turned on themselves as the dark oil seeped out.
The eagle had made it, It’s wings were washed by the rain that was sent to bathe it in beauty. The dark oil gone, its beak sharper and its talons longer, suddenly the eagle lifted up to flight and saw that its wings were actually stronger than before!!! It could go higher!! Its eyes were focused on the Sun, to where its reach became all the more realized knowing that nothing was impossible.
However, it took the valley of enduring the dark oil that came out and covered it, so that it would not beat itself up, but rather it continued to go to the rock and beat its beak and scratch its talons.
The dark oil represents the sin nature that has to be removed as we go higher in God. Not many make it through this valley, because they do not look to the ROCK, that took the beating for their sins, but rather they beat themselves up, not realizing that they are killing themselves in the valley as they are tormented and vexed by the dark oil.
The eagle who makes it through, takes itself to the rock, and endures the process of WAITING. When they are still, the rain is sent to wash off the dark oil, which is the Washing of the Word, that cleanses and prunes us. As we wait for the dark season, nighttime to end, we are waiting on the Lord and the bringing forth of His Light, showing us that WE ARE CLEAN BY JESUS CHRIST, THE ROCK OF OUR SALVATION!!!!
In your dark place, know that Jesus can heal you and deliver you! Wait on the meat of His Word and do not be vexed to the point that you hurt yourself, but rather, know that the Rock took the beating for you!
As You wait on the Lord, He will renew your strength, mounting you up on the wings of eagles in a greater grace, where you run and are not weary!!!!
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. Isaiah 40:31 Ampc
I hear the Father saying:
Do not be disappointed My child, for I have brought you a way that you have not seen, through a path of difficulty, rendering My promise in you, to be fully known.
You would not have recognized that which I had called you, had the path been easy. I have seen your struggles, knowing that you have held onto My Word, giving Me honor and glory, as you came to the end of your strength, entering My rest, where I have performed surgery on your heart, removing that which is of the carnal nature, and making you strong in spirit.
You are entering a time of greatness, where like David, I make that which seems impossible, possible, removing the hand of the enemy off of your neck, sitting you in a dignified place, where no longer the unclean shall come near you!
I Am the God Who has chosen you, and I will perform My mighty work through you, giving you grace and strength to know My power, which will be needed as you enter the plans of My promise!
I Am bringing you many returns in this season, where I will restore all that the cankerworm and the locusts have eaten, revealing the gifts that I have bestowed on you, as you have been faithful with a little, and now I will make you ruler over much!
I Am the God that hears and heals you! I will cause you to recognize the triumph that I Am performing in your midst, as your sons and daughters cry out for Me, knowing that I Am the God Whom they will serve!
I Am turning your circumstances around, only believe, knowing that I work all things to your good, showing you the open door that I have opened and cannot be shut!
It is time My child to enter into the Land of Promise!
Amen and Amen!
I have to share all that is confirming God’s Message in this hour, as He had me preach on Jeremiah 29:11-13 and Hebrews 4, on Monday’s Live broadcast, sharing about trying to use what I thought was quarters in the Laundromat for months, later finding out that they were not once I put my reading glasses on. One was a peso from the Philippines and the other was a Canadian quarter. God had me do a message on how we might have gifts and are trying to use them, but we are doing it in our strength. It was an awesome message.God kept talking about how our talents are treasures within a treasury.
Then Hannah Fisher sends me her devotion for that day in messenger, which was titled “The Best Treasure of All.” Then the NEXT day, Tuesday, she sent me this message.
“This is crazy we get to one of our clients house just now and she has her exterminator here named Sam who is a coin collector and they’re looking through a bunch of her coins, so we walk in and they’ve got all these huge coins scattered all out on the counter and she randomly had a 2 dollar coin from Canada (1996 with a bear on it) LOL I thought that was a cool coincidence!”
Then yesterday, Wednesday, God had me teach Dream Loud and Dream Large, Part 1, which is a new series for His people to know the dreams God has called them to. After I am through preaching it,Tracie Mark sends me a message that right after she watches the live video on Dreaming Loud and Dreaming Large that her music turns on and the song by Casting Crowns of “The House of Their Dreams” comes on.
If that is not enough she messages me a couple of hours later and tells me she was just given a wine bottle, to make a candle for someone with it!!! And here is the wine bottle; what is also awesome is on the Jeremiah 29:11-13 teaching I taught briefly on the wedding feast in John 2 of the water being turned into wine!!!!!! The name of the wine bottle is THE DREAMING TREE!!!!!!!”

Below, without giving it any thought, write down the first thing that comes to your mind, about two stressful life events. Remember just one is enough stress, but with two there is compounding stress, that is continuing a chronic stress pattern in your life.
Life stressors can be financial, marriage, children, health, etc. Only choose 2 at the most to look at right now. Make a table with the two stressors at top, and underneath write the first thing that comes to your mind.
Event 1 __________________________ Event 2________________________________
From these put a check mark by all that are negative.
Afterwards, on a new chart, identify opportunities that you see in the midst of your the same stressful life events. Look at the chart regarding opportunities and see if you can expand on the life events one more time each day. It always takes us getting the creative juices flowing, to where we are more OPEN to other ideas. You have a huge reservoir of ideas, especially in the subconscious and that is what we are reaching for, wanting to strike oil.
Opportunistic thoughts on Life Events: Do not be quick to write, rather think and consider the most radical thoughts, to the ones you “wish” would come true. The bottom line is to write down your aspirations. The thing with radical thoughts, is, that it provides a boundary for aspirations. If you never go high enough, you will not be able to dream. This will help with the self-schema, and again we are going for the subconscious thoughts like a child believing in anything; we enter the Kingdom like a child. There are many thoughts that are God directed resident within, causing you to believe that the sky is the limit.
Event 1 __________________________ Event 2________________________________
When you look at these opportunities, put a check mark by the one that gets you excited about life.

HELL TREMBLE!!!!!!!! IN JESUS NAME!!!!!
10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategiesand the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist andstand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude andright standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people). Ephesians 6:10-17 Ampc
I declare every attack of lying spirits that has brought discouragement and disappointment, are exposed to the light, and the power of God’s Word of Truth in you, yields a hundred fold standing grain harvest, bringing strength and grace to strengthen your inner man, sending the devil fleeing in seven directions, as the Standard of His Promise, is made known to your soul of resurrection power! In Jesus Name!
I declare your soul is made whole and that your heart will not be broken, in the Name I Jesus! I declare God’s anointing of the Spirit of the Lord binds up your broken heart, and that you will rise up in the power of His strength, knowing that you are a tree of splendor, an Oak Tree of Righteousness, in the Righteousness of Christ Jesus, a planting of the Lord for His splendor, as He causes you to shine like a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden! In Jesus Name!!!
God says that He has not forsaken you, that it is a lying spirit coming against your mind, and He says that He cuts it off! Glory to God! He says that enough is enough, and that your past trials that you have endured of pain and agony, is enough, and no more will you be in that season, for He is bringing you into the season of breakthrough, making you strong in HIs might, like the Wild Ox in Micah 4:13 that is lifted up from the threshing floor and dances on the enemy, as sheaves of grain are brought in under the feet of the Wild Ox, who has bronze hooves, devoting the victory to the Lord God Almighty!
God says He is giving you strength and purpose to know that you have had enough, and you will not tolerate the enemy’s messages, his lies and his torments, as you are bold in the Faith of His Word of Truth, declaring It is Written!
God says that He is bringing you up out of your wilderness leaning on your Beloved, as you come to know the grace of Christ Jesus, overcoming all the powers of this world! Glory to God!

I hear the Father saying:
Get ready for your Jubilee for I have brought you through the fire, and you do not smell like smoke! I have brought you through the flood and you have not drown! I Am the God of More than enough and am supplying to you the power of My promise, to you and your children, and your children’s children, as they see Me spreading your tent pegs, lengthening your cords and strengthening your steaks, to bring in the abundant supply of My Promise!
This is the time of Jubilant praise and rejoicing as I open your mouth wide open, filling it with laughter, as you dance and sing, seeing that I have brought in the promise, making a way for the impossible to become possible! I Am the God of the impossible, and in this hour, I will bring you into the broad place of the promise, filling you to overflow in front of the water gate, as the power of My Word washes your soul with abundance of My grace, making you whole, relieving you of all pain!
I Am your deliverer, your strong tower and defense, Who hears and heals thee! I Am the God of the supernatural, as I made a way for Israel out of Egypt with the gold and silver, I Am making a way out of your season of leanness, bringing you into the season of My glory, sitting you in the place of My Promise, manifesting the greatness of My Name!
The wealth of the wicked has been laid up for the righteous, and watch what My holy people will do, as I bring in the abundance of the nations, shaking the heavens and the earth, where the treasuries will be shaken and I will bring in the gold and silver, into My house, to feed the poor, clothe the naked, and heal the sick!
My harvest is coming into the Kingdom in this hour and some have planted, others have watered but the increase is the Lord’s! Your prodigals will come in, and that which I have promised of the outpouring of My Spirit will happen quickly, as I cause the enemy to be under your feet, increasing My power and strength in your life, as I cause your eyes to be open, seeing that the fields are white like snow for the harvest!
GLORY TO GOD!!!!! AMEN AND AMEN!!!!!
