Word of the Lord 2016
By Sharon Parkes
1.JOY and OVERCOMING
2 Chronicles 20:27 KJV
 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies.
2015 there were divine reversals which brought joy to us. As we saw somethings being reversed it gave us hope and joy to believe for more. And that joy and hope is launching us into 2016 with a greater expectancy of what the year will hold. A joy to Overcome as we saw the Lord fight for us and help us overcome our enemies.
1 Peter 1:21 KJV
 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Many struggled with issues of rejection and fear but this will be the year they will be left behind. New levels of freedom and breaking through for not just us but our families.
2.POSITIONED FOR DESTINY
Important to be plugged into a local church and under right spiritual authority and covering. There will be a release of joy and blessing corporately and those that are plugged in will receive that corporate anointing for them personally to receive what is being released corporately. Many healing, financial and family miracles will be released as the saints gather together
2 Chronicles 30:25-27 KJV
 And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.  So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.  Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.
2 Chronicles 30:24-27 MSG
[25-26] The whole congregation of Judah, the priests and Levites, the congregation that came in from Israel, and the resident aliens from both Israel and Judah, were all in on the joyous celebration. Jerusalem was bursting with joy—nothing like this had taken place in Jerusalem since Solomon son of David king of Israel had built and dedicated The Temple.  The priests and Levites had the last word: they stood and blessed the people. And God listened, listened as the ascending sound of their prayers entered his
3.CONTINUED TIMES of FOCUSED PRAYER
As we continue to have a focused time of prayer it will be a key to position us for destiny and right alignment. As in the movie the war room it’s not religious but getting us back to standing in a place of prayer standing in the gap.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. We don’t have to beg God but we must be diligent in our prayer life.
4.I sense that 2016 we are going to see things clearer and have more revelation .
Spiritual eyes to see ahead and hidden things exposed. And what seems unreachable not attainable is going to be attainable as we get the revelation.
This all has to do with the Hebraic year of 2016 meaning Eye and to see.
Matthew 13:11-15 KJV
 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.  Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.  And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.  But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Matthew 13:11-17 MSG
[11-15] He replied, “You’ve been given insight into God’s kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn’t been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That’s why I tell stories: to create readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they’re blue in the face and not get it. I don’t want Isaiah’s forecast repeated all over again: Your ears are open but you don’t hear a thing. Your eyes are awake but you don’t see a thing. The people are blockheads! They stick their fingers in their ears so they won’t have to listen; They screw their eyes shut so they won’t have to look, so they won’t have to deal with me face-to-face and let me heal them. [16-17] “But you have God-blessed eyes—eyes that see! And God-blessed ears—ears that hear! A lot of people, prophets and humble believers among them, would have given anything to see what you are seeing, to hear what you are hearing, but never had the chance.

5.2016 IS A TIME TO SEEK HIM AND KNOW HIM as FATHER / TRUST
Putting aside distraction and entering into a place of trusting Him. Having faith that He will come through.
The word trust means reliance on the integrity, strength,ability of a person or thing confidence . A person on whom one relies.
2 Samuel 22:3 KJV
 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Jesus said “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”. Also
“Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in His mercy” (Psalm 33:18)
“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” (2 Chron. 16:9)
In spiritual terms the eyes and the heart are directly connected: “And the LORD said … I have heard thy prayer … I have hallowed this
house … my eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.” (1 Ki 9:3)
