The momentum of God is soon to make a way where there has been no way…

Codye Reystead

As the sons and daughters of God continue to forge ahead this year, many have found themselves fighting relentless and resistant situations–situations not only affecting their own lives but also the lives of friends and family…

Due to the seemingly resistant situations before them, many feel as if they are unable to move forward–as if there is no progress to be made…as if they are at a literal standstill in their circumstances…

With hearts continuing to stand in faith, they have yet to see movement, yet to see breakthrough…yet to see a way through... 

But May will bring the beginnings of divine shiftings–as a new authority to rule over the “relentless and resistant” will begin to come into fruition. Heavenly authority will now begin to override and overwhelm that which has stood “relentless and resistant” to the forward movement of God’s people in this hour.

This is the month we begin to see the manifest movement–of the hand of God, into our lives and into our situations–And this manifest movement of God will begin to create a new way through–a way though that which seemed utterly impassable.

Pay attention sons and daughters–be watchful for God to do a new thing…to create new ways through the resistance, through the challenges set before us, that were not there before…

We must be ready…waiting and watching, for God to do a new thing–to create unexpected ways through…

In the days and weeks ahead we must be intentional to wait on the Lord–to get still (before God) in order that we might see His hand at work in our lives and in the lives of those around us. We must ready ourselves to move with Him as the pace picks up–to partner with Him for the greater Glory…as the manifest movement of God begins to make itself known...

It will be the Glory of God, seen in our lives, that will override the seemingly relentless and resistant (the enemy has set before us)…

This is the month, (beginning now)…that a time of “divine pass through” will begin for many

There have been multiple moments of “divine pass through” for the people of God this year, but this one will be more on a corporate level than before–created specifically to propel the sons and daughters of God not only through the resistant circumstances set before us, but also into the future plans, destines, and territories God has for us…both individually and corporately…

Be encouraged! Just as we may begin to feel as if there is no movement, only great resistance, God is about to create a way through–a new way through…a way that was not there before… 

For many it will prove to be an unexpected, innovative, creative way through...a way to pass through the resistance, bathed in the creative Glory of God, that will far outweigh anything we have ever thought of before. 

Look for God to do a new thing. Like the parting of the waters, this new thing, this new way, will be beyond our thoughts–beyond what we could have imagined, would provide a way through. Get ready. Get ready and get still. Watch for God to move on your behalf in creative and unforeseen ways 

As the children of God choose to stand in faith, we will see the resistance before us suddenly be confronted with the manifest momentum of God. This manifest momentum of God will be as the wind that parted the seas–causing that which seemingly looked impossible, to suddenly become not only possible but even viable and plausible. 

Again, get ready sons and daughters…for as we have continued to stand in faith in the face of great resistance, we will soon feel the holy momentum of God–the movement of His Spirit in very tangible, inarguable, and indisputable ways…

The momentum of God is soon to make a way where there has been no way!

Get ready sons and daughters! Get ready to say, "I know–there was no way...But now, my God has made a way!"

2019 - Learning the Embrace the Beauty of Intensity - PART 3

God will be actively teaching His sons and daughters through on the spot training in 2019. There will be an all hands on deck–a learning as we go evident amongst the Body, as many of us are being called into territories we’ve never seen nor been before.

Because many of us are moving into unfamiliar territories, we will need a new level of hearing the voice of God this year. Therefore, God is making an increased sensitivity to His voice available to us, but we must ask Him for it. We must ask and keep on asking.

It will be those who boldly pursue to hear Him well who will receive this increase.

Though navigating the waves of ongoing circumstances will continue, those who choose to focus on the voice of God (instead of their circumstances) will quickly learn to move with God, in His timing, and by His direction. Increased sensitivity to His Spirit will allow us to navigate the new with God–new territories, new directions, new strategies, and new blueprints for the future.

I believe 2019 will be a massive shift year, a year in which we will be moving from the old and moving into the new! We are living in the days when God, the Master Artist, is rolling up His sleeves–revealing Himself as CREATOR and beautifully creating something new! There will fresh and new ways coming forth this year–new ways to do life, ministry, and community. This year we will be actively partnering with our Creator in new ways–to bring Heaven to Earth in new and powerful ways.

The process will be paradoxically intense, beautiful, and powerful…

The process of learning to partner with our Creator to do the new will echo with the sound of beautiful intensity. 2019 will not be a year for the faint of heart, but for those willing to live boldly with God and step into all the new He is partnering to create.

In order to make room for all the new God intends to create within the Body this year, the mindsets of man must fall overboard. The process of leaving man’s limited thinking behind will prove to be intense, but the new being created will be both beautiful and powerful. As the sons and daughters of God choose to step into the new, and embrace this paradoxical process of beautiful intensity, I’m believing “His Kingdom come” will truly awaken within the hearts of all mankind–And many will rise up to become the world-changers and history-makers God has truly destined us be.

Jesus was once asked by the Jewish religious leaders, “When will God’s kingdom realm come?”  Jesus responded, “God’s kingdom realm does not come simply by obeying principles[b] or by waiting for signs. The kingdom is not discovered in one place or another, for God’s kingdom realm is already expanding within some of you (Luke 17:20-21 TPT).

Jesus is looking for those who are willing to commit to the process of Heaven invading Earth–those who are willing to carry the Kingdom of God within…

He is looking for those who are willing to embrace the paradoxical process of beautiful intensity…

Note: The following is Part 2 of “2019 - Learning to Embrace the Beauty of Intensity.”

Please click here for Part 1

This coming year, the sons and daughters of God will become more skilled at learning in the moment–as God is actively engages us with on the spot training. Our good, good Father is actively teaching His sons and daughters how to keep our hearts pressed into His–And our spirits increasingly sensitive to the winds of His Holy Spirit, though the waves of circumstance(s) may persist.

I believe we are moving into the days the prophets of ole’ longed for! The days when God, being the Master Artist, is rolling up His sleeves–fully committing Himself to the rather messy creative process of teaching His sons and daughters how to live and abide in a more powerful way. This is the year our Creator God will be teaching us how to live with one foot firmly positioned upon the infinite waves of eternity and the other upon the finite shores of earth. This is the year God desires to teach us how to live in the very space where Heaven and earth collide. Ans as we learn to occupy this new space a new connectedness to Heaven is going to emerge. Hearing God’s heart will become much easier for many.

2019 is going to come with its own beautiful intensity. The process of learning to abide in the very space where Heaven and Earth collide, will seem rather paradoxical at times–as we begin to experience the beautiful and the intense at the same time. However, if we choose to embrace the paradox of beautiful intensity 2019 will bring, I believe “His Kingdom come” will truly awaken within the hearts of all mankind. And the sons and daughters of the Kingdom will truly rise up to become the world-changers and history-makers we destined to be.

Jesus was once asked by the Jewish religious leaders, “When will God’s kingdom realm come?”  Jesus responded, “God’s kingdom realm does not come simply by obeying principles or by waiting for signs. The kingdom is not discovered in one place or another, for God’s kingdom realm is already expanding within some of you (Luke 17:20-21 TPT).

Jesus is looking for those who are willing to commit to the process of Heaven invading Earth–those who are willing to carry the Kingdom of God within…

What God has begun, this process of training up of those who are willing to embrace the beauty of intensity–and learn to live in the space where Heaven and Earth collide, will continue far beyond 2019. Look this year for those who are willing to say yes to this process, for they will rise up to become God’s truth carriers and hope distributers; shining their Father’s truth and hope into the darkness–

And Heaven will begin to manifest within–

This will be a turning point year–And we had better get ready if we are to going to step into the plans and purposes God has for each of us. It’s going to be a year of choosing where you stand and then staking your ground–refusing to go backwards, only forwards. Intentionality towards the heart of God will be key in our advancement and the Kingdom of God advancing upon the Earth.

It will be a year in which we will continue to toil, but we will also harvest–and we will learn to do both at the same time. Again, the beautiful intensity and paradoxical nature of the year will be evident. Watch, as the seeds of harvest are going to begin to come forth in massive acceleration, and then be planted once again. Multiplication is coming. Be encouraged, for many of you will experience the ground you have been toiling for many years, suddenly bear tremendous fruit in 2019. 

The sons and daughters of God must get ready–ready to lay our hands to the plow, ready to toil, ready to plant, and ready to harvest–ready to be multitasking harvesters in the Kingdom of God…

And ready to live, move, and abide where Heaven and Earth collide…

Get ready to embrace the beauty of intensity…

2019 - Learning to Embrace the Beauty of Intensity - Part 1

2019post image.png

I believe many of us experienced this past year to not only be a seemingly speedy adventure, but also quite intense at times. It’s been a year of learning how to do the familiar, but in an entirely new way–newness mixed with the inevitable unknown. And it has been a year of seeing things come back-around–a year of pondering past seasons while dreaming of future days.

Personally, 2018 could be summed up as a year of learning to sail with no map and blindfolded as well!–I’ve journeyed with an ever-present holy knowings. Keep going, keep going…my heart senses the winds of destiny are about to blow, yet when I look to the horizon it remains blanketed in a quiet, foggy mist. Countless days I’ve traveled like a sailor without a compass–simply willing my heart to stay tuned to quiet whispers of my Creator Captain, and my spirit sensitive to the ever increasing holy knowings stirring deep within.

Yes, 2018 has proved to be rather intense, but I have discovered God’s empowering grace to be just as intense. His grace has proved to be with me, empowering me in ways beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Grace now travels with me…and I choose to remain in His Shadow.

I believe God is in the process of teaching us how to abide and dwell in His empowering grace. 

Many of the sons and daughters of God are in the process of learning how to lean-inhow to lean-in hard and fast. Like an anchor leaning in to the seafloor to hold the ship secure in the storm, God is training us to lean our hearts into His. 

I believe in these days, many are learning the art of leaning into the heart of God, while we navigate the storms of continued circumstances and adversities. And in the midst of it all, God is lovingly teaching us how to keep our eyes fixed upon the Light of the horizon and our hearts set upon the Everlasting Son…

The Overcomers are Coming...

Codye ReysteadComment

Today, I clearly heard the Holy Spirit say, THE OVERCOMERS ARE COMING…

As I listened, I began to see an army of believers emerging on a desert-like horizon. Every believer’s heart was set ablaze–burning with the fire of God set deep within. Then, walking with great purpose and resolve, they began to gather–forming a solid line of fire on the horizon.

Again, I heard, THE OVERCOMERS ARE COMING…their hearts forever set ablaze by what they have been through in these past seasons. They will carry the FIRE OF GOD because they have been through the deserts of great trial and tribulation. Ultimately, through their circumstances, they have found the Heart of God to be Ever-Present–illuminating their journeys through their darkest hours of various trials and tribulations.

Though they have had to walk darkened deserts, they have learned to follow The One who has made Himself known to them–The One who illuminates their way through the deserts of life. They have become resolute to follow the FIRE Of GOD, even in their darkest hours. They have learned they must keep their eyes fixed upon THE LIGHT, The One who has made Himself known to them…THE ONE WHO IS their Ever-Present LIGHT in the darkness…

Now, they are coming–the overcomers who know no other way than to travel in the LIGHT of HIS COUNTENANCE. They are coming, their hearts burning with a holy resolve, “I must to stay close…I must, at all costs, stay close to the fiery flames of His Presence…”

By keeping their eyes and hearts fixed upon His Presence, THE SPIRIT OF GOD is bringing them forth–And they are emerging from the deserts of tribulation much stronger than when they went in. They have been made larger-larger of heart and of spirit…they are the OVERCOMERS….

THE OVERCOMERS ARE COMING. Through their resolution to follow the FIERY PRESENCE of GOD, they have attracted the fiery hosts of Heaven…

Angels of fire are now being dispatched to escort the overcomers through their deserts of tribulation. Fresh winds are coming to infiltrate their lungs. New resolve is coming to their bones.

Now, the overcomers are being empowered to fully overcome. With holy power, beauty, and authenticity, they are being empowered by the hosts of Heaven to carry the FIRE OF GOD–HIS HEART TO THE NATIONS–

And upon their mantles it will read, I AM CHOSEN - CHOSEN TO CARRY THE FIRE OF GOD…

Father, bless your overcomers…

To those who feel their lives have become a fiery crucible...
by Codye Reystead

Their are many in the Kingdom who have have been experiencing the effects of an intense and long warfare, coming through various forms of trial and tribulation. And for many, this warfare has been going on a very lengthy period of time.

"The Indwelling Presence" -  Prints now available

"The Indwelling Presence" - Prints now available

Many are feeling as if they are stuck in position of simply “fighting for their lives”--fighting for themselves, fighting for their loved ones, fighting for their future, their destinies, and the future destinies of those around them.

Some have been encountering these relentless circumstances as though they were walking through a deep and forgotten valley. Some have been experiencing these trials and tribulations as though they were walking through the flames of Hell itself--the unyielding, ever present tribulations have continued to press in upon you--like fiery furnaces, ever increasing in harshness and momentum. Yes, the intensity of the warfare for many has been that great.

But know this, a massive shift is coming. I Am doing a new thing. I Am bringing forth a people group from the crucibles of great challenge--a people group unlike the world has ever seen. Yes, the hidden ones who have been formed in heat and fire are being brought forward. I am bringing forward those who have been in the crucibles of life; glowing with powerful truth and illuminating testimony. Get ready, for the distant ones are soon to emerge, bearing the flames of tribulation and the brilliance of triumph. I have formed a new people group soon to be revealed.

Watch as story, truth, and testimony will begin to come forth in new, powerful, and creative ways, for they have been birthed in the flames of great tribulation. Though I could have removed many from flames of their circumstances, I chose instead to allow the heat of relentless battle to become their very making. In My wisdom and love I chose to allow the crucibles to continue, knowing I would never forsake My beloved ones as they continued to press on, gaining faith and courage with every step. I chose to allow the challenging battles to continue, knowing the fires of circumstance would become holy shortcuts to great growth and another realm of illumination–-a realm in which they could become illuminated with the glory and presence of their Maker."

Now restitution is at hand. The intense battles many of you have been fighting, the ongoing circumstances and challenges meant to destroy, will now become the very things I will use to bring you forth, in My glory.

Yes, My beloveds, you are being brought forth, unscathed and burning brightly for your King. Be encouraged! Absorb My courage burning within you, for nothing can dim the brilliant reflection of My Light burning in you. Take joy, for you are created to be consumed–-consumed with My indwelling presence, My LIGHT burning within you.

Nothing will be able to dim the fiery flame of My Presence burning so brightly within you, for it is MY LIGHT and My eternal presence burning within you–-it is of another realm, it is of Heaven.

Do you feel the shift beloved ones? For I declare you are now carriers of My Kingdom coming! No longer will you be defined by the fires of your circumstances, for My fire within you will burn stronger than anything that may choose to come up against you! Yes, My beloved ones, My Light within you will burn so brightly it will bring violence to the darkness, illuminating every atmosphere with the light of Heaven. You are carriers of MY LIGHT. My LIGHT in you will shake the darkness simply when you choose to enter the room. Darkness will tremble simply from My Presence burning so brightly within you.

So take courage My burning ones, I am THE LIGHT and you are Mine! The Light of My countenance shines upon you and through you! No darkness that exists can overcome the indwelling presence of My Light within you. So from this day forward, consider My Light within to you to be your weapon against the forces of darkness.

Wherever your feet tread will be changed--changed by the LIGHT of My indwelling presence, burning so vibrantly within you!

"He said, 'Look! I see four men loose and walking about in the fire without being hurt! And the fourth one looks like a son of the gods (or the Son of God)!'” (Daniel 3:25 NLV)

"I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘These are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’” (see Zechariah 13:9 NLT)

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12 ESV)

On the brink of BREAKTHROUGH

Codye ReysteadComment


“My breath is beginning to blow fresh winds upon you. This is your time! Woven into your very DNA are the plans and purposes I spoke over you at your creation. I Am releasing My impenetrable hope to fill your lungs, for it is impenetrable hope that will activate the fruition of your destiny to come in fullness. Look again as I call up divine restitution to invade your atmosphere, and cause that which has been used to hold you back to become lost on the horizon…”

I believe there are many who have been experiencing a ‘barrage’ type of attack from the spirit of hopelessness (specifically in the last week to ten days). The spirits of hopelessness, weariness, and chaos (moving simultaneously) have attempted to keep many from their daily processes–both in the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Issue after issue, situation after situation has been coming up against the sons and daughters of God–attempting to invade our space, our place, and our journeys–even our spheres of influence have come up against the spirits of hopelessness and chaos.

Many have found their personal time to be in the cross-eyes of chaos–And many have battled increasing weariness in the last few weeks as you saw what was stabilized suddenly spring into ‘disorder’ and ‘chaos.’ Hopelessness has worked overtime to escort ‘the spirit of weary’ into personal lives–attempting to introduce chaos and disruption not only into the daily activities of God’s people, but also to the minds and spirits of the sons and daughters of God.

However, as I sat further with this revelation, I began to hear “though it may seem as if you are on the brink of breaking, you are on the brink of solid breakthrough. New ways are being made for those who make-way for the Kingdom of God…” In the Spirit I could see many sons and daughters standing on the “brink” of a cliff. In other words, they were standing on the ‘brink’–the threshold, the edge, the verge…

Many in the Kingdom are ‘on the brink’And though it may seem as if you are on the brink of breaking, you are on the brink of solid breakthrough. Hold steady and hold fast. Breakthrough is coming…new vision and new sight are coming…coming to broaden your perspective yet again, so that you can see the horizon before you and how to navigate toward it. God is releasing panoramic-vision to many so that they might receive the many holy knowings the Holy Spirit is releasing in this hour–holy knowings that will create new paths for the expansion of God’s Kingdom here on Earth.

Creating new, fresh, and creative paths for Kingdom expansion are on the increase, but these new paths must be just that–new paths. New paths must be found, formed, forged, broke open, and broken through. They have, and will continue to require, “a breaking open and a breaking through” because they will break-ground and forge new paths in the spiritual realm for the Kingdom of God to advance. These fresh new paths will claim new territory for the Kingdom of God–in every facet of culture and every spectrum of society.

So though you feel as if you stand ‘at the brink’, hold fast for you are on ‘the verge of breakthrough.’ You are chosen. You are the groundbreakers, the spearheads, visionaries, and innovators of a chosen generation. You are the history-makers and history changers–And this is your time! This is your time to hold fast to your dreams and visions, to not let go of the promises of God, and to dig in even deeper to His faithfulness as the Dream Maker and the Dream Giver…
