Recently, the Lord has been calling us to prepare for a shift that is taking place. On Sunday I took us through what Holy Spirit is saying by asking five questions from the story of Moses. I recommend watching the message [click on the image above], but here are the questions:
- Have you given up on your calling because it hasn’t turned out the way you imagined?
- Have you accepted that you are a stranger in a strange land?
- What is the Lord doing to get your attention?
- Will you drop your plans and turn aside?
- Are you prepared to say, “Here I am”?
We are in a time of change, an in-between place, and it’s essential that we are focused and intentional in this window of time. We are moving from one thing into something completely different in each of our lives, in Wellspring, and in this nation and the world. A shift is taking place, and part of this shift will require a turn. And the Lord is watching and waiting to see what we do.
When the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.”Exodus 3:4 [English Standard Version]
When we turn aside to see, I believe the Lord is going to speak dramatically from the very thing He used to get our attention. That strange thing is an invitation to a conversation about what will come from the shift. Are you anticipating something strange? Are you ready and willing to turn?
March 20th Debbie Countryman, the leader of our intercessory team, is going to be teaching on our belief system. Get ready to hear a fresh word on how God created us and where we stand in this present world. Welcome to change like the world has never seen before! Can you believe that the Lord intentionally and in His supreme wisdom decided to create you and place you in this important moment? For such a time as this… Are you a victim or a catalyst?
Let’s seek His pleasure together!

DAILY WORD FOR MARCH 16
“At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars.”
— Psalm 75:2-3 ESV
God has chosen the proper time to “judge with equity”. Equity comes from the Hebrew word “yasher” that means to be smooth, straight, or right. When all things appear unstable and unreliable — when even the ground we stand on and the proud leaders we look up to are shaken and lose their resolve — God Himself will measure out and restore balance.
God’s judgement makes things right. Psalm 75:7 says that when He executes judgement, He puts down one and lifts up another. His hands are the scales that demote and promote in order to bring rightness.
We may look around in dismay, thinking how are things so imbalanced around us? We grasp for the moral rails that once guided us, but they’ve been shrouded by a smog of heady arrogance and deceptive agendas. What is clearly wrong has been popularized and lifted as right, while what is clearly right has been beaten, bullied, cancelled, and gagged. The very earth is beginning to shake under the paradox, the absurdity, the contradiction to truth and reality. Such foolishness cannot stand when God takes hold of the pillars and restores steadiness.
At the Lord’s chosen time, He will say, “Be still.” And in that moment, He will move the pieces, cutting off the strength of one and elevating the cause of another. All authority (in the heavens and the earth) has been given to Jesus Christ. Hold on and faithfully trust that your King’s hands are on the pillars.
