DAY THREE – The Pit-Stop Pause is Over!
In 2019, five months before the first Covid lockdown of March 2020, God spoke to me through several dreams about a Great Pause that was about the fall on the earth. (I wrote about these in my 2020 book The Divine Reset*).
Several months later, in January 2020, a prophetic friend confirmed these dreams at a leaders gathering where she prophesied:
“We are about to enter a new era, but first there will be a pause”.
Two months later the world was in a great pause, due to Covid lockdowns.
A Pit-Stop Pause
As we entered the first lockdown in March 2020, I had a vision of a vehicle coming into a pit-stop, removing an old, wrecked and ragged wheel, and replacing it with a brand-new formula-1 racing tyre.
“This is a pause that will lead to acceleration” I wrote in my journal at the time.
The 3 Years Are Over…
As 2020 lockdowns gripped the nation that spring, I was hoping it would all be over by the autumn. I’d had enough of long walks, boring days, Joe Wicks exercise videos and online church services – anyone else?!
But several of my more prophetic friends confirmed, quite separately, that it was going to take longer:
“This is going to be a 3-year season.”
I hated that word with a vengeance. I was already tired by the middle of 2020 – and now it was going to last until 2023?! Urgh!
Well, here we are – it’s 2023. In fact, we are days away from March 2023, exactly 3 years since the first UK lockdown and the great global pause.
I believe that means the pause is coming to an end. The ending of the old era is ending! Ha! We are shifting towards God’s new thing with increased acceleration and accuracy.
So, are you ready to run in the purposes of God?!
MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES:
“He changes times and seasons.” Daniel 2:21
“The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” Lamentations 3: 25-26
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” Jeremiah 29:11-12

It will stir you to embrace all that God is outpouring in this time and the paperback version is also designed as a journaling or small group guide, with space to respond to questions and discussion points as you take time to reposition your own life and leadership for all that God is going to do next.
