This morning during my prayer time God put the number in my mind “441” and an image of a flower blooming. The top looked like a daisy, though the stem looked more rugged and wild. As I went to go look up verses that correlated with that address, I (typing quickly) only typed “441” and hit search. It was no accident. The very first result was “US ROUTE 441”.
This is a highway that runs through Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, hitting the major areas of Miami, Orlando, Ocala, Gainesville, Athens, and Knoxville. With recent political action bringing Georgia front and center, I immediately thought of the nation. I was listening. I got the impression that God is MARKING US ROUTE 44 for a powerful move of the Lord. Watch this area of the nation for powerful works of the Lord! Things that are rugged and wild-looking, but bringing JOY are coming into FULL BLOOM. Almost like John the Baptist preparing the way for an even bigger move of God- rugged, wild-looking, and full of joy.
Now, knowing the context, I looked up 441 in Bible verses. His Word is the lamp unto our feet and the light unto our path, so in taking a spiritual “Route 441”, I went to His word for what path that might be. First, God showed me John 4:41 which reads “And because of his words many more became believers."
Things are going to happen according to GOD’S WORDS that will make MANY MORE BECOME BELIEVERS.
The second verse highlighted was Mark 4:41, “But they were overwhelmed with fear and awe and said to one another, “Who is this man who has such authority that even the wind and waves obey him?”
Church, the wind and waves still obey Him. Though you may not SEE reason to hope or SEE how God can come through, watch with awe as God shows that He STILL HOLDS AUTHORITY.
Finally, Isaiah 44:1 came up, the opening verse of Isaiah 44. I journaled about this chapter not long ago about the election. Important highlights from this chapter that God is saying that are STILL TRUE:
Don’t be afraid (v 2)
I will help you (v 2)
I will pour out on dry areas (v 3)
I will bless your descendants (v 3)
God has proclaimed His will from long ago, and no false idol can prophesy truth- only the Lord (v 7-8)
In fact, I foil signs of false prophets and overthrow the “wise” (25)
But I carry out the word of my servants and fulfill the predictions of my messengers (v 26)
I still have plans to restore these ruins (v 26)
My shepherd leaders will accomplish all I desire, and WE WILL REBUILD (v 28)
Strongs Concordance 441 is correlated with both “alluwph” , meaning “Chief” or “captain” (Hebrew), and “anthropareskos” meaning “man-pleasing as opposed to God pleasing” (Greek). God is raising up shepherd leaders that will accomplish all He desires. Do not fear. All His plans will still come to pass. Now especially it is CRITICAL to pray for DISCERNMENT specifically to “see what is pleasing to God versus pleasing to man”. Take this to the Lord in prayer and ask for Him to reveal to you how to walk in the ways that are truly pleasing to Him and don’t just have the appearance of goodness or wisdom. In the days to come this will be like a guiding light.
God’s not done.
