Scripture: Joel 2:26
“You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God; Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame.” The word ‘wondrously’ is the Hebrew word paw-lah. Moses said ‘Lord, go with us. If you don’t go with us, I’m not going up from here. I’m done.’ Moses is saying, ‘How will all the peoples know that You are with us unless You are seen? You have to be seen. People have to see Your Presence. I want Your Presence.’ This encounter with God is in Exodus 33. After God agreed to go with Moses, then Moses said in verse 18, ‘Show me Your glory.’ And God did just that! Moses’ response after seeing the glory was, ‘Take us as Your inheritance. Make us Your family!’ God’s answer to that was, ‘Behold I make a covenant with you this day before all your people I will do paw-lah.’ God obligated Himself by covenant to judicially intervene so that judgment can be seen. The promise by God, ‘I will do paw-lah’ speaks volumes. It means that which no man can do except God, that which is beyond all human agency. God says, ‘I will show up for you and I will give you signs and wonders that only I can do.’ That is quite a promise. In Joel 2 God says ‘I will give you a paw-lah.’ In Exodus 32:10, God says, ‘In My covenant I will give you paw-lah.’ In Exodus 3:20 we have the definition of paw-lah, “So I will stretch out my hand and strike the Egyptians with all my wonders (paw-lah) that I will perform among them. After that, he will let you go.” Those are judgments, those are all the judgments of Egypt. That is exactly what they are. Is it possible that this prophetic progression has now been initiated in our nation? I believe that was the Word of the Lord to me last year. Joel 2 unfolds a restorative prophetic progression that fills our nation. The judgments of Egypt are available to us! Verse 26 says, “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord your God who has dealt wondrously ( paw-lah) with you.” What does a paw-lah look like for you? Is it the healing of a child? Is it the restoration of a broken marriage or being debt free? Is it freedom from our own personal ‘prison’? Is it crushing the enemy under a thousand feet of water after we walk through the Red Sea, our own ‘Red Sea’? What does it look like? Does it look like hail stones that kill all the cattle for those who didn’t obey the prophetic word to get them back into the safety of the barns? What does it look like? Does it look like turning water into blood, or bringing forth frogs or lice or covering the sun so there is darkness for three days. It is all on the table. It is all available. God said, I will do paw-lahs! Wouldn’t it be amazing to walk through DC with that anointing. Paw-lah, paw-lah, paw-lah and let all the Jezebels of DC get to know the personal paw-lah of the Living God. Business might possibly boom and jobs would skyrocket as darkness is removed. God would create an economic boom in the nation. What does a paw-lah look like? Tell God that He is the One Who promised it, Who has dealt wondrously with us. It may look like the gift of a suddenly or of freedom and the breath of the Spirit that catapults us out of captivity and into the next level of growth, perhaps even a supernatural surge bringing freedom through the removal of enemies!
