The Lord woke me up with these words:
"Rosangela, get ready! You're going from the PIT to the pulPIT!"
I instantly opened my eyes, sat up and said: "No Lord!! You know I hate standing, and talking in front of people!! It's my biggest fear!"
He replied: "If you want to follow Me as you say, you don't get to choose! Joseph did not choose to become second in command in Egypt! Esther didn't choose to become queen! But they were set there by Me! To bring deliverance and salvation to My people! Don't you know, I use the foolish things of this world to shame the wise? Don't you know that what you struggle with the most, is the area that will bear most fruit in your life?"
I believe this is a word for many! This is the season of promotion! The more you stay low and humble, the more you will be lifted up by God and men! The Lord will use your biggest struggles and fears to bring freedom and deliverance to many! Just as Joseph and Esther had to face their fears, and insecurities in order to fulfill their destinies and bare the most fruit, so will we have to face what we fear the most in order to bring to pass what He Has written in our books!
OBEDIENCE IS EVERYTHING!
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”
14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
THE LORD IS SEPARATING THOSE WHO HAVE LAID THEIR LIVES DOWN FOR HIS KINGDOM PURPOSES, FROM THOSE WHO WON'T.
OUR LIFE IS NOT OURS!
THE FLOW OF EVENTS HAS BROUGHT US HERE, NOW, AT THE APPOINTED TIME! THE KAIROS TIME! FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE ARE CONVERGING TO BRING FORTH THE MIGHTIEST FLOW OF GOD'S SPIRIT OVER THE EARTH!
HOW? THROUGH THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD! WHO WILL MANIFEST HIS GLORY ON THIS EARTH BY FULFILLING THEIR DESTINY, AND FULLY WALKING IN THEIR GOD GIVEN IDENTITY!
DID YOU NOTICE ALL THE 4s AND 1s??
THIS IS NO COINCIDENCE!
To write "41" in Hebrew, they use two Hebrew letters, mem and aleph. The mem means water, and the aleph means an ox.
The Hebrew numbers from 41-49 are all signified by water (mem) in some way. The series of the 40's generally have to do with a flow of events or a flow of time.
When paired with the aleph, the ox signifies strength or that which is first, since it is also the first letter of the alphabet. In this case, paired with water, it signifies a strong flow of water, a rushing stream, which can separate people on either side of the river. In fact, the Hebrew word badal, "separate," has a numeric value of 41.

Fourteen (yod-daleth) Deliverance, Release
To write fourteen in Hebrew, they wrote two Hebrew letters: yod-daleth. These signify the hand (outworking) of the door. It pictures a release or deliverance from the prison with the opening of the door. Fourteen is the number of deliverance or release. Israel was delivered from Egypt by the Passover lamb that was killed on the 14th day of the first month (Passover). When the ship that was carrying Paul to Rome was caught in the storm, they were delivered on the 14th day (Acts 27:33, 34)
