The Prevailing of Heaven's Purpose: A Word for October


“Man makes many plans, but the purpose of the Lord will prevail.”  
Proverbs 19:21

This Scripture sums up the whole month of October. And for that matter, it is the season we are now in – the time of God’s purpose prevailing.

The word purpose means – 1. The reason for which something is done or created; the reason for which something exists. 2. To have as one's intention or objective. 3. Resolution. 4. Determination.

The Lord began showing me in September that we have entered into “the time of His intention.” He was very specific, and the biblical basis He gave me for this is Proverbs 19:21.

As He explained it further to me, I began to understand there are set times of God’s intention that are pre-appointed by Him. And when we do come into these times, His purpose overrides and prevails over the plans of people.

I first wrote about this last month in a word I entitled, Entertaining Angels. If you haven’t yet read it, I encourage you to do so because it applies to all of God’s people. It’s very revealing and exciting.

The intention of God is now at the forefront. His purpose is working in our individual lives, as well as within the corporate Body of Christ. He is aligning and drawing people together for His purposes.

The Kingdom of Heaven has divine mandates on certain people for certain things at certain times. There are God-appointed commissions on certain sons and daughters to work together for specific God-appointed reasons. And The Father is in the process of bringing them together to begin the orchestration of those reasons. It's His appointed time for this. Call them Kingdom purposes because that’s exactly what they are. 

It won’t all happen at once, but October is a key month He will begin establishing these divine alliances among His people. In fact, He’s been at work behind the scenes over the past several years preparing us for this very time. Another pivotal month concerning this was July. He put certain things in motion then that will now accelerate in this time

So it’s no coincidence you are where you are. It’s no coincidence you’ve been learning what you have. It's no coincidence God has repeatedly placed certain people on your heart and mind. It's all a part of His preparation process to get you ready for Heaven's purpose. And what will start unfolding this month is no coincidence either. There are no coincidences with God.

Trust is always a part of the process. He’s brought you this far so know He will complete the work He first began in you. Know His intention is prevailing over you; even if you can’t see it yet. 

October is clearly a month of change (in the natural and in the spirit). Here in the US, the weather shifts into a set autumnal pattern. Vibrant colors emerge as leaves begin to turn. The past seasons of winter, spring, and summer culminate into the glorious beauty of this season  fall.

That’s a key for this month and time also – turning. And it has everything to do with His purposes. 

The Father is turning us, and matters concerning us, in the direction He wants. And as we turn, a spiritual vibrancy will begin to emerge that directly coincides with His purpose and intention for our lives. The beauty and glory of this season will reveal itself through the turning. God’s etching on our lives will become more evident.

Heaven's purpose is prevailing and October is but a foretaste of what's to come.
