Overcoming the Giants

This is an encouraging word which I received from the Lord last week during a prayer vigil. I hope it is an encouragement for you as well. I heard the Lord say to me:

I have brought My people to such a time and such a place as this. In the Spirit you are in a very wide place – can you see? As far as the eye can see is the territory that I am giving to you My children, it is yours. It is your glorious inheritance in Me. You will stretch far and wide – even beyond the horizon will your influence be felt. Your territory will be magnificent.

All that has stood in your way – the strongholds of the enemy will be demolished, pulled down and rooted out by My anointed ones. You will face your giants and you will overthrow them. The giants in your land are being overthrown. Giants of false religion, giants of wickedness, giants of rebellion, giants of depravity and filth, giants who take captives and feed on My people.

Enough is enough. My remnant, My faithful ones, My anointed ones – they will rise up with wings as Eagles and they will drive out the enemy from this territory.


I am bringing a fresh anointing of My Holy Spirit upon you. The wind of My Spirit is going to blow and propel you into places you have never been before in the physical and in the spiritual realm.

This is the day of the Lord. Rejoice and be glad for your King has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

My blessed and beloved ones. My angels are encamped all around you. I have sent them to help you and to carry out My commands. They will war with you and they are for you in the battle to evict the enemy from your territory.


All honour and glory and power belongs to the Lamb who sits upon the throne forever and ever. Amen and Amen. Let all who know the King say Amen.


Later as we prayed I saw a vision of an angel in the Spirit. He had a scroll tied with red ribbon in his right hand and in his left hand he had a trumpet. He was blowing the trumpet to awaken the people of God. I believe that this angel was sent to carryout God’s commands which were written in the scroll and which were in response to the prayers of the Saints. As the angel blew the trumpet, I saw the land of the nation being ploughed up and down its breadth and its length. I believe it was God’s Word and the prayers of the Saints which were breaking up the soil.

These verses which Peter spoke when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost from the Prophet Joel were brought to my remembrance. I pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us.

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”
Acts 2:16-18

Biscuits 🍪

You’ll be pleased to know this isn’t a post about giving up biscuits (cookies) for Lent but rather about the unusual ways God sometimes gets our attention and speaks to us about big things.

I love the fact that the Lord loves to engage with us. He speak to our hearts and sometimes brings a big thing to reflect on but in an engaging and fun way. This happened to me the other night.

My friends and I were having a our weekly chat/pray/bible study over WhatsApp and we took 5 minutes out to listen to a worship song and ask the Lord to speak to us. The word I heard in my spirit was “Biscuits”. Initially, I was like “Lord really? are you teasing me?”Biscuits had nothing to do with what we had been talking about and I wasn’t even thinking about biscuits. Either this was a completely random thought crossing my mind or a word spoken to me by the Lord.

I said Lord -“You want me to share the word “Biscuits” when we all come back together”. In my mind I was already thinking that my friends will think what!! She’s lost it, lockdown has finally tipped her over the edge. However, that still small voice said again “Biscuits”..and “Just you wait and see”….

Ok, so when we came back together to share what we believed the Lord has spoken to our hearts, I just said “Biscuits”. My friends laughed but then asked if I had anymore from the Lord to which I replied .”No, just Biscuits.”

My friend Heather (bless her) had the key though to unlock my word “Biscuits” and interpret what the Lord was saying.

She shared that when I said “Biscuits” she was immediately reminded of a word the Lord had given her about Expectation. Heather has a dog Lola who like all dogs loves Biscuits. Whenever Heather takes her for a walk, Lola knows that in Heather’s pocket there are biscuits. She expects to receive a biscuit when Heather reaches in her pocket and she certainly expects to receive a biscuit on her walk. She will sit down and stare at Heather’s pocket knowing that there are good treats to be had. She just has to patiently wait and Heather will give her a biscuit. The Lord challenged Heather on her walk about whether she also expects to receive good things from God and also what her expectation is of God. Is He a BIG, BIG, BIG God to her?

If you have read some of my recent posts on No bargain basement, Good Gifts and Open Sesame that this also follows a theme that God has been speaking to me about recently. God has been encouraging us to Ask him and Expect to receive good gifts from our Father in Heaven. Yet again, God is finding another way to speak to our hearts and gently challenge us by asking us “What is your expectation of Me.”?

I pray that we will all prayerfully consider this question and if our expectation of God is wrong that we will allow Him to show us and bring us into a right expectation of Him. The Lord is so gracious in how He speaks to our hearts. I am reminded of the word I shared some time ago about Expectation and have posted the link below in case you have not read it before.

Expectation – What is my expectation

I pray you have a blessed day and now I’m off to have a cup of tea and a biscuit x

Expectation – What is my expectation

I have been thinking about this today and it is a challenge.   What am I hoping/expecting to receive from God when I pray to Him or seek Him for direction in my life?

Do I have a confident expectation in the goodness of God?

I sense God is saying– What is your expectation of me?  

Don’t be limited by past experiences. Widen your expectation – expect the unexpected.

God can do immeasurably more than we can do or think.  

Do I come to Him with a limited expectation based on past experiences or disappointments and a misunderstanding of His word and character?  

The truth is that God can do awesome things and totally surprise us by His grace and mercy.

It is easy to get in a rut and expect the same to happen all the time.

Expectation can be stifled through habit and tradition.

I am being encouraged to look for the new and expect something different – After all – God’s ways are far above our ways.

God reminded me of the story in the Acts of the Apostles of the lame man who was seated outside of the gate Beautiful begging for money.  

He must have sat there day in and day out holding out his hands expecting to receive money from the people going in and out of the temple.

He had the same expectation of Peter & John, but they gave the lame man so much more than he expected. They gave him healing & restoration by the power of Jesus Christ.

It was interesting that the story also says that the people around did not expect a miracle of healing either because the man was said to be “old” – he was above 40 years of age – goodness what an expectation!

Does our age and what other people think of us affect our expectation of God – that we are too old, too young or don’t qualify for God to move in our lives in power.

God forbid.

The beautiful aspect of this story is that the lame man received so much more than he expected to receive. It is such an amazing demonstration of God’s abundant love & mercy.

I pray for us all to have a right expectation in the goodness of God, not limited by past experiences but to be inspired by the Holy Spirit to increase our expectation and expect the unexpected.

Amen 🙏
