When Preparation Meets Opportunity

David Lebo
March 30,2020

It is a kairos time in history. His story in you is being written – a divine moment in time. Many have endured great trials and testing, and the words they have received from the Lord in days past have seemed to be delayed over long periods of time, seeming as if they may never come to pass, almost as if they have been forgotten or missed.

My heart has been heavy for these ones. Many of them feel as if they are running out of hope and can't seem to understand what the Lord is doing – even questioning if they heard God correctly in the first place those many years ago.

As I have been praying into this, the Lord began to speak concerning these things:

The Father said, "My banner over you is love! I'm so full of love for you that I want to shout it out to the world! I love you," says your Abba Father, Papa God. He declares over you, "My child, My child, I am so delighted in you. I want to shout it out with the very shofar of God, into all the nations, how proud I am of who you are and who you have become in Me. I give My angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways (Ps. 91:11).


Your Weapon of Praise

"In your times of worship with Me, as you begin to lift up your voice, you'll begin to sing with My angels. The very choirs of Heaven will join in on your worship. You are a worshiper first and foremost. That is who you are, and that is a mighty powerful place to be. The Father seeks those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23).

"When you bow down low, all of Heaven – you demand its attention. When you begin to sing to Me, the angels are called to attention! I call you today, O mighty warrior, and I sing My songs of praise over you in this moment, in a 'Zeph. 3:17' reality. Your praise is not just a pretty song, it is a weapon! The sounds of Heaven begin to join the sounds in the earth. You will not just sing to Me, you will sing with Me!

Like a Diamond Ring Set in Gold

"This is a divine moment of your positioning. You've been a little off of your position. You didn't know it fully – who you are and what I have called you to be. Man tried to place you but it didn't fit – wrong place, wrong time. There was some pain and much frustration involved.

"But now I, the Lord your God, am hand placing you by My mighty hand, taking you from the 'Stonemason's Altar' – the place of the pounding of the hammer. You have heard it for many years, for some even decades. You've said, 'OK, Lord, enough is enough, I get it. I have felt the pounding, the purpose in the pain.' There was almost a rhythm to it. You could feel the rhythm of the hammer upon your life. 'Is not My Word like a hammer that breaks the rocks to pieces?' (Jer. 23:29). You said, 'Lord, why?'

"All the while, I was shaping you and refining you, getting every rough place smooth in you. I was polishing you. You weren't ready yet; a little more here, a little more there; a little polishing here, a little more sanding – a finer refining. There was some friction; sparks were flying. It was a tough process. You said, 'O God, how much longer?' The Father said, 'Not much longer, My child. I am developing My patience and My character in you, chipping away at all you don't need.'

"And now, at this kairos moment of 'His-story' in you, at the right moment, at the right time, you are ready now. You are ready now! I am placing you in a divine placement in the right moment, at the right time, apostolically and prophetically, by the very hand of God, in the wall of My tabernacle," says the Lord. "You are ready now. You're ready now. And from the moment of your placement, you'll be transformed from a common, ordinary rock, seemingly with little value, that was pounded on for years, into a bright, shining gemstone in the tabernacle of My wall. You will shine brightly as a sapphire, ruby, or diamond, full of many lights with many colors – a full-spectrum blessing with many expressions coming forth from you!"

I'm also hearing the word "gold." God says, "You'll be wrapped in gold, a symbol of the divine nature of God, like a diamond ring set in gold, taken from the King of king's finger and placed on His beloved in a divine setting and positioning through relationship!"

In this new season, you are now rightly fitted, rightly placed by the very hand of the Master. It's the perfect fit now! It feels right; looks right! It's perfect! Beautiful! Your ring is custom made – perfectly your size! It's a perfect size, perfect fit, perfect shape, perfect timing and perfect placement now, in Jesus name.

You'll shine now with the glory of God because it's right now – the right time, the right place. People of God, there was divine purpose in the pounding and the pain, but now I declare to you today that the pounding is over. The preparation, though it has been hard, is now over. Your preparation has met opportunity – the right time, right place, right moment, and right opportunity! Preparation meets opportunity – a kairos time with God – a divine, opportune moment in time.

Your New Name

Get ready! God has called you by name, set apart for His purposes, and you belong to Him and Him alone. You are coming into your divine identity with a name change. "Faith" will be your spiritual name in His supernatural dimension, because you will walk by faith and not by sight anymore. Hallelujah. You'll believe for the impossible from this day on, and you will walk in a new dimension with God that is the faith dimension. You'll have anointed feet to walk into the destinies and callings of God, placed by His hand for His purposes, missions, and assignments.

You have been hand placed, hand planted, in the garden of the Lord. There is deep seed in you – some 20 to 30 years old – that will flourish in this time, in the house of my God, and from this day on, with great acceleration. The seeds of His Word combined now with God's Spirit create a miraculous combination being watered deeply by Holy Spirit rain (Hos. 6)!

Divine Relationships

It's the right time, right place, and right moment. As you abide in Christ, your vines will grow miraculously up into the heavens, and they will bring supernatural harvests with supernatural growth. They will be super green growth, producing supernatural fruit that will feed the multitudes – such a heavy fruit with divine connections through divine relationships!

We all have to understand this principle: God will always move through relationships! When you have the real deal – good, genuine, and healthy relationships – when people have your back and you have theirs, it's God's perfect alignment through relationship. Glory to God! You don't have to do this thing alone!

God is putting together a Kingdom people who will bring in the harvest together. They will plant together. They will water together. They will bring in a harvest together. It is not a one man show or a one woman show any more. God is raising up an army of like-minded people who will come and sit at the table of the Lord and say, "Lord, I put everything in my life on the altar, in Jesus mighty name."

An Invitation to Surrender All

It is a day to put everything in our lives back on the altar of God. The days of sitting on the fence are over. If we hold back any portion, God will hold back. The New Testament Covenant requires you to give it all; then, God will give it all. Religion makes it hard; relationship makes it easy! Surrender everything to the Lord, right now, and put it all on His altar. If we hang onto our stuff, we are saying to God that we can do a better job than He can with this portion, no matter how small.

It is a day to let go of our control and put it all on the altar of God. The invitation of the Holy Spirit is for every Believer to give it all; then, God will bless it all. And in this moment of time, in this one day in your history, God is supernaturally aligning your next 10 to 20 years! This is the magnitude of this now moment with God. This is what you have been feeling for quite some time now, a divine pull of the Holy Spirit that something was about to break. He just needs your permission to do what He wants to do with you and in you! If you say, "Yes, Lord, yes!" and believe His word, you are going somewhere today.

It's a day You have made, Lord; we will rejoice and be glad in it (Ps. 118:24). We choose to rejoice! It is a gift You have given to us – one day, 24 hours – that we will not waste or squander, but we will be walking in the footsteps of Jesus, walking in Your divine footsteps. I pray that we would have anointed feet to move when You say move, anointed lips to speak when You say speak, anointed ears to hear, "Go here, go there," and to hear a voice behind us, Your still soft whisper, say, "My sheep hear My voice and I know them, and they follow Me." (John 10:27).
