Please share with others!

Yes, God still speaks. God is NOT dead and He is VERY active. He is an active God that is intentional about what he is saying and doing. Nothing is a coincident. So, be still and know that He is God and that he wants to communicate with you CLEARLY.

"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." Acts 2:17

Let me testify to an ACTIVE God:
1. God has spoken to me audibly
2. I frequently hear God in dreams
3. He gives me direction to pray against evil
4. His still small voice helps me avoid bad situations

I thank you that I can hear your plans more clearly. I thank you that the Saints are being awakened to your plans as well. O' Lord, I thank you that I get to partner with you to drive back the enemies' plan and declare your victory on this earth. Teach me O' Lord, show me your plans to turn what the enemy meant for evil to good. I ask for supernatural sight to see how you will restore all that the enemy tried to steal. I believe in your mighty power God. I am confident you are God and you have given me authority to trample on spiritual darkness. Thank you father for letting me into your battle plan. I love you Abba. Amen.
