“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:19 KJV)

During a recent corporate worship gathering, I had a vision that I believe reveals a key for Kingdom expansion and provision in 2018. I saw an endless expanse of water and as we worshiped, gold as fine as dust motes shimmering in the air were released over the water. As the gold poured out over the water, some of it was carried on the current and some began to rise up unto the throne of God. When it reached the throne, it then became solid gold that dropped down to us. I heard, “Cast your bread upon the waters and after many days it will come back to you.”

“Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many day. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.” (Ecc. 11:1-2 KJV)

I thought that was an odd verse to hear, because I saw gold, not bread, being released over the water. I asked the Lord and heard, “When you worship and the glory within you is released, it is carried out on the river of My Spirit into the nations. As the glory increases, expansion occurs. As it rises to Me, it is re-formed to become the supply that you have need of, and the supply for My people in many places.”

I wrestled with this, trying to understand how the gold of glory dust is reformed. Holy Spirit then counseled me, saying, “You try to understand in your natural mind how a thing will be accomplished. How the works of God are accomplished in your life, the provision coming forth, cannot be understood by the natural mind. It is enough for you to know that as you continue to trust and worship Me, especially in those hard places that require you to press through doubt and fear, I take your worship from your heart of faith and trust in who I am, and reform it into your provision.”

“As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.” (Ecc. 11:5 KJV)

When I shared these things with my husband, Holy Spirit prompted him of the following:

“If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the [gold] of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” (Job 22:23-28 KJV)

I looked up Ophir and found that it was the city on King Solomon’s trade route where gold was traded for goods! Holy Spirit is bearing witness to me that what I saw in the spirit was what happens when we release the glory of God that is within us onto the rivers of the Spirit. It is supernaturally traded – transformed into – our provision!

Holy Spirit reminded me that the angels assist in the supernatural processes, bringing to my remembrance two other visions I have had in the last year about worship and angelic assistance. In the first, our worship created a fortress on which the angels positioned themselves at key places. When we began declaring the Lord’s attributes, the angels took our words, transformed them into weapons and hurled them at the enemy’s camps, destroying them. In the second vision, as we worshipped, angels ascended to the throne of God with our worship, descending to us with tools and strategies we would need to enter the new gates. In the most recent vision, explained previously, our worship released glory that became our provision.

The angels are the messengers, those that respond to His words (Psalms 103:20) and ministering spirits for the heirs of salvation (Hebrews 1:14). It is interesting that the definition of the root word for ministering in the Hebrew (Strong’s Concordance) includes aiding others with resources and relieving poverty! This is a supernatural work of God, not striving according to the world’s ways!

What the Lord has been showing me through these multiple visions is that worship is key to defeating the enemy, receiving strategies and tools to go through the gates into new territory, and release of our provision. We can’t worship with a religious spirit, as a formula, with the intent to receive as our goal. True worship is expression from a heart full of love and adoration for our God; He is all that we desire, He is the quintessence of good, beauty, wisdom, love, glory.

Are you facing dire circumstances, hard places where it seems there is no hope? Be expectant! Worship! Rouse yourself up and take ascendancy in the spirit because we serve the Most High God, Maker of heaven and earth; Jesus Christ Lord of all! When we worship from this place of eternal truth, the glory of God within us is released and, in the spirit realm, this is transformed into our victory, strategies, tools  and provision! Praise God, He is so good! This will be a year of great victories and expansion of the Kingdom of God in and through our lives as we worship Him in spirit and in truth and release His Glory! I am hearing the Lord say, “Trust Me in this. Let your faith arise and My glory flow and the heavens will release to the earth below what is needed for My Kingdom to grow. Keep your eyes on Me alone; provision will come forth from My throne.”
