Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

Month of Iyar-Turning Bitter Waters Into Sweet

  • On the Hebrew calendar, we are in the month of Iyar. Iyar is the month of the Tribe of Issachar. The sons of Issachar were those who were able to discern the signs of the times and who knew the times and seasons of God. During the month of Issachar, we receive increased revelation, and numbers and time are significant with how God is moving. Iyar is also a month where God wants to show Himself to us as Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer.

     

    When the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and were on their way to their promised land, God took them by way of the desert to get to Mt. Sinai. The Israelites journeyed three days into the desert without any water. After three days journey, the Israelites came to a place called Marah, but the waters of Marah were bitter. The Israelites grumbled, were weary, and became discouraged because of the harsh conditions on their way to their promised land. Moses interceded to God on behalf of the people, and God showed Moses a piece of wood from a tree to throw into the bitter waters to make them sweet. Moses threw the wood into the water, and the waters became sweet. God spoke to the people of Israel and said, If you do what is right in my sight and obey all My statutes and commandments, I will put none of the diseases on you that I brought on the Egyptians, For I am the Lord who heals you. (Exodus 14:22-27). The Israelites then camped at a place called Elim, an oasis in the desert.

    Read decree 

    I prophesy, your bitters waters are turning into sweet! I decree: the places where you had angst, disappointment, and discouragement; Holy Spirit is stirring the waters and bringing healing, restoration, and recovery. I prophesy God is moving by His Mighty Power on your behalf. This is your season of replenishment, turnaround, and Joy!

    Now when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. Exodus 15:23-25
