Recently I heard the Lord say:

‘Allow Me to examine alignments for some alignments are hindering assignments,’ and immediately I heard Psalm 139:23-24:

‘Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart;
Test me and know my anxious thoughts;
And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me,

And lead me in the everlasting way.’ 
Psalm 139:23-24 AMP


The Lord spoke to me:

’Many have become comfortable with some alignments. Many have become familiar with alignments and some of these alignments are allowing the enemy access. There is a shaking of alignment that I am doing right now to sift out wrong alignments, and to make room for new alignments and the move of My Spirit and what I am going to do. For some have been given new assignments in this hour and they are wrestling deeply with these assignments because their heart has been in wrong alignment. There are others that are still aligned with people and places that I have been calling them out of and they have not yet moved on My instruction. There are others that have been living in double-mindedness and I am calling them deeply into the place of aligned faith with what I have spoken. There are many alignments that I see in My Bride that are allowing access to the enemy and there are alignments that are hindering the assignments that I have given to many in this hour.’

‘I am calling My people to My feet, to allow MY Spirit to examine their alignments. I am not calling My people to examine their alignments in their own human wisdom or effort. I am calling for a deeper level of surrender. I have been shaking for a long time and I am shaking again, and the shaking is about to intensify again because I am making room for My Glory. I am making room for My manifest presence in a way that has never been seen before. I am calling My people to relinquish control and allow Me to rearrange ALL that I need to rearrange. For some alignments I am shifting were established by Me in the previous season, but that alignment now needs to be shifted. Let go! There are alignments in hidden, dark places that are festering dross and sin within My Bride, I am uncovering and bringing things into My light for I am cleaning house and cleansing My Bride. There are alignments of the heart in the hidden places that are not thriving in truth, and I am exposing these lies and alignments, to make room for My truth and My Word.’

’Allow My fire to go deeper still. Allow My fire to go deeper still. I am bringing My people to life — true life in Me — and prepared, fortified and strengthened to partner with Me in all that I am going to do in this new era. There is still a deep preparation and purging taking place and I am calling for an even deeper face down surrender to My fire. For I am exposing the areas of pride within hearts, for I am raising up a people who walk in true humility before Me. I am exposing areas of allegiance to other things before Me. I am raising up a people who burn with first-love fire. I am raising up a people whose eyes are locked with Mine and live for an audience of One.’

’I am asking you, My people, to continue to lay down your way. I am asking you to lay down assumption and presumption, for this is the era of the unexpected. Align with Me in surrender and make room for Me to move and align you, however I choose. For now is the time for the demonstration of My power, being demonstrated in places of your deepest dependence on a level that you have never seen before.’

’It is time for expansion that comes from walking the narrow path with Me. It’s time for expansion that comes from walking the narrow path with Me, but you MUST allow Me to rearrange alignments in the way that I need to. I am calling you deeper My people. I am the One who defines your assignment. I am calling you deeper into realms of trust that you have not walked in before. Many of you who have been walking in such deep wrestle over assignments: watch as these wrestles suddenly fall away as I REALIGN. Watch Me realign alignments that have allowed the enemy access. Watch Me close these doors and watch Me strengthen you, watch Me heal you, watch Me deliver you, watch Me fortify you, and watch Me release you into new territories and new lands. Watch Me, watch Me. It’s time! Watch the limitations, the chains and the heaviness COME OFF in the REALIGNING.’

‘Watch the hindering of assignments fall away in the realignment and watch the EXPANSION of assignment take place in the realignments There are wells in the realignment. Wells of My presence where you will find all you need for the assignments. You will find wells of My presence. You will find ME in the realignment. Repent and Relinquish control in your alignments and allow My Spirit to bring you into a greater realm of walking in all that I have for you in this hour. The path is getting even more narrow, but it leads to life. I am raising up a people so deeply consecrated unto Me. I am raising up a people so deeply in awe of who I am and in love with Me and SURRENDERED to My ways, and burning with first-love fire. My friends will carry My Glory. This is a time of great deliverance and purging, cleansing and purifying, refining and fortifying. I exhort you, do not stand on the sidelines assuming that your refining is done, I am going deeper and deeper still. Even in the deep examining — at times painful — I am raising you up to life: in strength and deep intimacy with Me to truly walk in who you were created to be and all I have called you to walk in. You, My beautiful Bride, are being refined.’
