Psalm 5:12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Walking On Water
The Lord is calling us out of the natural realm into the supernatural realm. In the book of Matthew, Jesus came to His disciples walking on the water as they were in a boat. When they first seen Him they were in fear thinking that He was a ghost. But then faith rose up in Peter and he said, Lord if it is You, bid me to come to You, walking on the water. Jesus said, come. Peter began to walk on the water until he put his focus on the raging wind and waves. He then sank calling on Jesus to save him.
The Lord says, I am calling My people to step out of the boat of the natural, into the realm of the supernatural. I am looking for those who are not afraid to step out of the place of complacency. I am looking for those who desire to go to a new level, and are not swayed by the havoc that the enemy is trying to bring. They are those who are not afraid of the winds and the waves of adversity but are trusting in Me for provision no matter what their circumstances are. Don't be moved by rising currents that try to pull you in the opposite direction of My will, but be determined to overcome all obstacles that come against you. Trust Me in this season as My glory is about to be revealed in your life. I am calling you out of your comfort zone into a place of intimacy. The way into the supernatural realm begins with an intimate relationship with Me. It begins by spending time with Me. It begins by spending time in My word. As you read the bible, rejoice knowing that I will watch over My word to perform it, and My plans and purposes will come to pass in your life as My word will not return void but accomplish what it says it will.
Just as I reached out my hand to save Peter as he attempted to walk on water, I am also reaching My hand out to you to lead you into a journey of the supernatural realm. Trust Me to walk you into this lifestyle of faith. Trust Me to meet all your needs. Trust Me as you begin to step out against your natural thinking because that very thing that you are battling will be your greatest testimony. Do not give in to fear and doubt. I am your healer, I Am your deliverer, I Am the God of your destiny. Resist the temptation to give in to the flesh. I Am with you as you step out of the boat. I Am the God of the supernatural and I am challenging you to come up higher. I am looking for those who are not afraid to step out into new levels of My glory and as you do, I will surely show Myself strong on your behalf says the Lord.
Matthew 14: 25 - 32
Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid." And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water." So He said, "Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God."
Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side of the lake." And they launched out. But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, "Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!"
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

"LET THERE BE LIGHT"
Due to hurricane Sandy I was left without electricity for fifteen days and was staying with family members. It was nothing less than a miracle that I didn't have any floods whatsoever at my house as ocean water and raw sewage flooded many homes and businesses. What a blessing it was when the men from the electric company arrived and turned the power back on with just the push of one switch. I asked them if I would have to light a pilot light or if the heat and hot water would go on automatically. They replied, yes when we push this switch, everything will instantly be restored.
The Lord says, just as I am the light of the world, I have also called you to be the light of the world. Rise up and let your light flood the darkness that is trying to invade the earth. Become a guide to those who are in dense darkness. Become a light to the spiritually blind. Rise up to take dominion over the powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. You have been called for such a time as this. Don't be pulled into the vortex of fear that the enemy is trying to pull so many in to. Take your stand against everything that is contrary to My word and that which is opposed to what you believe.
Just as a lamp must be plugged into the outlet to be energized you must also stay connected to Me. My Word is light. As you follow My Word, My word will be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path to lead and guide you. Don't follow those who can not see. Don't be as the blind leading the blind. You can't be led by someone who has no vision, neither could you have double vision. As you are sensing a shift in the spiritual climate, don't allow the things of this world to infiltrate your spiritual vision. Guard your eyes. Take heed to what you see so that the light in you will not become darkness says the Lord.
The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
"The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

Seated With Christ In Heavenly Places
As the body of Christ we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, and if every Christian had a revelation of who we are, and what Jesus entrusted to us, we
would begin walking in unimaginable favor as well as authority and power. No matter what it looks like in the natural, we are living in a time when the Lord wants
to do wonders among us.
The Lord says, Do not be moved by what is happening around you. Do not look at the wind and the waves but keep your eyes on Me. I am releasing authority to My covenant people, as you are seated with Me in heavenly places. As you arise and take your rightful seat, I will show you things to come. You will understand My unconditional love, My protection, My provision and receive My personal guidance. As you continue to press in through prayer and supplication, you will understand
My ways and know My direction. You will have favor in My sight, and I will teach you My ways. I will open the doors of revelation to those who are diligently seeking Me.
To those of you who are pure in heart I will enlighten the eyes of your understanding. I will reveal mysteries as you come up higher. Stand strong without wavering and don't falter in difficult times. Darkness cannot overtake you, as long as you walk in the light of My Word. As you store My Word in your heart, your mind will be renewed and your way of thinking will be transformed. Don't be swayed by anything that doesn't line up with My word. You will be strengthened and able to endure the storms
that come into your life as you prepare yourselves for the days ahead through fellowship with Me. Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow I will do wonders among you,
says the Lord.
Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people, says the Lord.
And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you."
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Greetings from Elaine
Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ. I will not be sending "A Word In Season" this week due to power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy. I live in an area that was affected but all is well. I didn't have any flood or tree damage where I live. Thank you so much for your prayers. A Word in Season will resume next week. Abundant Blessings
Luke 6: 46-49
But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great."
The second that light is exposed, darkness loses its power
