WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2010 -

"A YEAR TO EMBRACE MY GRACE AND SAVOR MY FAVOR"
by
Lisa Jo Greer

 

I released this word at my meeting for Awake The Bride Ministries last Tuesday, January 5, 2010. I am putting it into writing for those of you who were not able to be at the meeting and/or who do not live in this region. I would ask that you do not reprint, distribute, or reproduce it in any way without my explicit permission and/or authorization. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. Should you wish to reprint it, etc., please do not hesitate to e-mail me or call me. Thank you. I will most likely grant you permission to reprint it; however, I just like to know where it is going. I make it point not to read anyone else's words regarding the New Year until after I send the word that the Lord gives to me out. As a result, I have no knowledge of what other prophetic voices are saying for this year. I have not read anyone else's word yet for this year. This is a word of blessing and encouragementin the Lord. I pray that you are blessed by this word.


I. 2010 - A Year of Transition

2010 will be a year of transition for many in the Body of Christ. "Do not fear the transition, but embrace it. For I have seen your faithfulness to Me and your humility before Me, and I will reward you. I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me with all of their heart. Seek Me with all of your heart this year." Hebrews 11:6 states, "And without faith it is impossible to please God," because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him." It is crucial this year that as the transitions come, we have faith in the midst of those transitions. Faith greatly pleases the Lord.

II. 2010 - A Year to Believe

"This is a year to believe - to believe in the dreams that I have given you. Even though Joseph was in prison, he never forgot the dream. You must never forget the dreams that I have given you and have placed within your heart.
For they will come to fruition." In Genesis 37: 5-7 we are told of Joseph's dream: "Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. He said to them, 'Listen to this dream I had: We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.'" Joseph also had a second dream which he shared with his family as well: "Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. 'Listen, ' he said, 'I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.'" Genesis 37: 9. Joseph never forgot the dreams which the Lord had given to Him. This is a year where we must reclaim the dreams which the enemy has attempted to steal from us. The enemy is a thief, and he comes to steal, kill, and destroy. You must not allow him to steal your dreams. You must not allow him to kill your dreams. You must not allow him to destroy your dreams. You must not give up on the dreams which the Lord has placed within you. Joseph did not give up, and we must not give up either. It would have been easy for Joseph to do so. It would be easy for us to do so as well. But we must not. We must go forward, even though all hell may attempt to stop us.

III. 2010 - A Year to Overcome the Darkness with His Light

I had a vision of a flashlight illumining a dark cave. As I saw the vision, I heard the Lord say, "Just as a flashlight illumines a dark cave, so shall My people overcome the darkness this year. For the dark will flee when My Light is
shone." Isaiah 9:2 states,
"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned." This is a year to overcome the darkness with His Light that is within each of us. And as we shine His light that is within us, the darkness will flee from around us. As we shine with His Light, the darkness has no choice but to flee.

IV. 2010 - A Year that will Begin the Breaking Down of All that is not His.

I heard the Lord say that this is a year that He will begin to break down all that He has not built. Ministries and Churches that are not of Him will come down. "For I seek a Bride who is wholly devoted to Me." He seeks a Bride who abides in Him. He then gave to me an acrostic regarding the abiding nature that He seeks from His Bride. It is as follows:

A Always

Attentive to the Leading of the Holy Spirit Attuned to the Voice of the Holy Spirit

Acceptive of the Perfect Will of God

B - Broken Before Him

Beautiful in His Sight

Bare - Transparent Before Him

I - Inner Life with Him

Acts Interdependently with the Holy Spirit, colaboring with Him, Not Independent of Him.

D - Draws strength from Him and Him alone

Does Not Disobey

Devoted and Faithful

E - Ever Radiant with His Love

Ever Reverent and Submissive Toward Him

Ever Awaiting His Divine Direction

Not Easily Distracted By the Ploys of the enemy

V. 2010 - A Year to Flow into the Divine Current of His River

I heard the Lord say, "Just as a stream flows into a river, this is a year to flow into My Divine Flow, My Divine Current. For there is Healing in My River. There is Life in My River. There is Abundance in My River. There is Provision in My River. My River flows from the Throne of God. Tell My People, if they desire they have access to My Throne, but they must get into My River, They must flow with My Current, not, not, their own."

"The man brought me back to the entrance of the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar. He then brought me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate facing east, and the water was flowing from the south side." Ezekiel 47: 1-2

"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." Revelation 22: 1-2.

This year, more than ever, we must be in the River. We must flow with Him. We must allow His Divine Current to take us where He wants us to go. The current in a river cannot be controlled. Man cannot control the Holy Spirit. We must flow in conjunction with the Holy Spirit's leading at all times. We must allow the Holy Spirit take us where He wishes us to go. No longer will the Lord permit man's agendas. He has His own Divine Agenda which will and must be met. There is great healing and provision for us in His River. But we must go with His current to receive His healing and provision. We must allow ourselves to be carried by the His current.

VI. 2010 - A Year to Watch and See

I heard the Lord say that this was a year for the righteous to "Watch and see." "Watch and see Me provide." "Watch and see Me deliver." "Watch and see Me set free." "Watch and see Me save." "Watch and see Me do abundantly more than you can ever ask or think." "Watch and see. Watch and see. Watch a see." For many of us, 2009, was a difficult year. I believe that whatever you may have gone through in 2009, the Lord is saying in 2010 to "watch and see." For He has not forgotten you. He loves you deeply. And He will never leave the righteous begging bread. He cares so much for each of us, even the very minute, intimate, details of our lives. He cares for us. We must never forget that. 2010 truly is a year to "watch and see" the goodness of the Lord.

VII - 2010 - A Year of Angels At Your Service

There will be angels at your service this year. I believe we are to "watch and see" for the angelic assistance that will be coming our way. There will be increased angelic awareness and angelic assistance this year. The Lord desires for us to colabor with the angels. An increase in angelic awareness, and more encounters with angels will occur this year to many of you reading this word.

VIII - 2010 - A Year of Rewards and Discipline

I heard the Lord say, "this is also a year where I will reward obedience ( I always reward obedience but it will be more clear, more obvious this year), and there will be discipline for disobedience. There will be no 'hell' in My people. I will get it out. And I will begin with My pastors, My leaders, and My ministers first. A holy fear will once again come upon My people." Many in the Body do not want to hear this. I did share a similar word in November of 2009 regarding this. The Lord really wants to and will purify His Bride. For those of you reading this, please, please heed this. I am not going to elaborate on this. I think the above is clear, very clear.

IX - 2010 - A Year of Rending Our Hearts to Him

This is a year to rend our hearts to Him. I believe that we are living in the days prophesied by the Prophet Joel in Joel 2: 12-14: "Even now," declares the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing - grain offerings and drink offerings for the Lord your God."

This is a year to rend our hearts to Him. To set our hearts before Him. To have no other gods but Him. To be wholly devoted to Him. I believe that our nation, America, is at a turning point, as are many countries of the world at this crucial time in global history. The Lord is gracious and compassionate, and He is giving us an opportunity to return to Him and to receive His grace and His mercy.

Will you rend your heart and receive His grace and His mercy? Will you receive His favor and His blessings for your life? Only you can answer that question. For He is seeking a Bride that is wholly devoted to Him, who has rended her heart toward Him and only Him.

X - 2010 - A Year to Embrace His Grace and Savor His Favor

2010 will be a year of multiplied grace and favor for those who are His. We are to "Embrace His Grace and Savor His Favor." He is extending His grace to us.  We must accept His grace and go forward in our callings, our anointings, and our destinies. No matter what occurred in 2009 - the setbacks, the attacks from the enemy (and many of you were buffeted by the enemy in 2009), the disappointments, the trials, there is grace in 2010. There is multiplied grace in 2010. Five (5) is the number of grace, and in 2010 there is multiplied grace. Multiplied grace awaits you this year. But you must embrace it. I once took a ropes course when I was in college. It was an indoor ropes course, and we were approximately thirty feet in the air. I remember having to jump and grab a trapeze bar that was in front of me. There was a net there in case I missed. I missed the first few times. Then, I remember the instructor saying to me, "see it, and grab it." When I did that, I made the bar and held on. God is like this sometimes. We must embrace His grace. We must "see it," so to speak, and grab a hold of it. He is reaching out to us. Like the father in the story of the prodigal son, God is reaching out to you this year with grace and favor. But you must grab it. You must take a hold of it. His mercies truly are "new every morning." We must also "savor His Favor" this year. On my recent trip to Hungary I had wonderful Hungarian goulash soup. I savored the flavor of that soup. I enjoyed every bite. This year, the Lord wishes us to "savor His Favor" like that. He is about to pour out His favor upon us in unprecedented ways. We must enjoy His favor. Even little things like giving you a parking spot close to the front of the grocery store is an example of His favor. It is not coincidence. It is His favor. Thank Him for His favor. For He so desires to lavish His children with His great love for us this year. It truly is a year to "embrace His Grace and to savor His Favor. "

Conclusion

In concluding I only wish to say that I hope that you are blessed and encouraged by this word. I pray that 2010 will be all that God desires it to be for you, and that you will receive all that He has for you this year. May it be a year of deep fulfillment and purpose in Him. May you "embrace His Grace and savor His Favor" this year.
