Lana Vawser: “A Word for Those 55 and Over: Your Best Days Are Ahead, Not Behind You!”

THE ELIJAH LIST Mar 21, 2018


Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
Being in my 60s, I can say this was a word I thoroughly enjoyed reading and receiving for myself.
We’ve posted words about God re-firing, not re-tiring, the mature and well-seasoned ones in the Body of Christ.
If you think you are in your golden, leisure years of no purpose…you are WRONG! God is not done with you at any age and you have so much to offer to the younger generation. They need to hear about your testimony, your experience and your wisdom you’ve gained over the years! They need mothers and fathers to sow and pour into them.
As our friend Lana Vawser shares here:
I heard the Holy Spirit say: “Where you have been through intense seasons of fire, it is now time for you to move into a season of awakening, impartation and release of My fire through you. You are now to carry My fire more powerfully than you ever have. Great healing, restoration, increase and freedom was given to you in the fire. Now it is time for you to take your place in greater ways. Get ready for great favor to open up over you. Get ready for the activation of My Spirit upon you to FATHER and MOTHER many in the Body of Christ and in the world – to nurture, to model, to build, to assist and to mentor.”
Please do me a favor and send this word out to all your mature friends and family who need to know that they have great destiny and purpose…even much more than in their younger years! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

For quite a while now, I have had a strong stirring in my spirit of a fresh new move of the Spirit of God upon those 55 years old and above in this season. As I have carried this word for a few months now, I felt the Lord prompt me to release it now. When the Spirit of God began stirring this message in me for those 55 years old and over, I heard Him whisper to me:
“Many of My children 55 years old and over have felt forgotten. They have felt abandoned. They have felt left to the side – while others have an excitement in their spirits for what is to come and what I am doing, but are awaiting My direction. There have been circumstances, people and the enemy who have spoken words and lies over My precious ones, suggesting their ‘best days’ are behind them. But I am decreeing the exact OPPOSITE.
Their Best Days are Upon Them
“The best days for these precious ones in Me are upon them. Many of these precious ones are now moving into a season of such great awakening. Awakening to their identity in greater ways, as many have not known their identity deeply. They are awakening to who I am and awakening to their giftings and callings in greater ways.
Where you have been through intense seasons of fire it is now time for you to move into a season of awakening, impartation and release of My fire through you.
“Many have dreams left behind, dreams left on the wayside and many are carrying regret, but I am decreeing: My beautiful children, you are moving into a season of seeing Me move more powerfully IN and THROUGH YOU than you have ever seen before, and you are going to move into a deeper place of ‘DREAMS DO COME TRUE!’ There is a great season of REFRESHING upon you that is being released in the WONDER of who I am and the work of My hand.
I have been feasting on a Scripture from Psalm 92:12-14:
“Yes! Look how You’ve made all Your lovers to flourish like palm trees, each one growing in victory, standing with strength! You have transplanted them into Your heavenly courtyard where they are thriving before You. For in Your presence they will still overflow and be anointed. Even in their old age they will stay fresh, bearing luscious fruit and abiding faithfully.” (The Passion Translation)
I heard the Lord whisper over His beautiful children 55 and over: I am decreeing flourishing, victory, strength and thriving upon you! Oh, the encounters with Me that shall be had!
Instantly, I was taken into a vision of Jesus in the garden again. The Lord was inviting those 55 and over down a beautiful, golden pathway. Flowers lined every side of this beautiful pathway, and as His people accepted His invitation afresh to follow Him, they would take the hand of Jesus and walk together. I saw the flowers SO vibrant, SO alive – like there was a decree being released from them. Joy was all around and I heard Song of Songs 2:10-13:
“Arise, My dearest. Hurry, My darling. Come away with Me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to My heart and lead you out. For now is the time, My beautiful one. The season has now changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth with bright blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of My purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘There is change in the air.'” (The Passion Translation)
Radical Freedom and Increase
The atmosphere over these beautiful ones was filled with the sense of CHANGE. I saw the harvest of promises and a harvest of prayers suddenly bursting forth. I saw a deeper, beautiful season of awakening and a time of significant positioning and a greater awakening of destiny. It’s a season of radical freedom and increase.
The place of intimacy that the Lord was leading these ones into was a land that was BRANDED with the decree of the Lord. The land was branded with the fire of His love so that in this season, there would be greater manifestations of victory, greater flourishing, fruitfulness, thriving and strength (see Isaiah 40:31).
The Lord was leading them into a land of encounters with His heart and His Word that would supersede any other season. They are entering a season of the greatest encounters with Jesus and an outpouring of the Spirit of God in their lives.
I prophesy over you that this is your season of flourishing. This is your season of your greatest fruitfulness, thriving, strength, vision, creativity, destiny, harvest and victory. This is your season of your greatest awakening! This is your season to TAKE YOUR PLACE in greater ways!
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
Jesus showed me that in this new land, there is such a depth of receiving fresh bread and staying fresh! He is taking them into a deeper place of receiving greater revelation of the Word of God – the daily, fresh manna from Heaven.
“Bread alone will not satisfy, but true life is found in every word, which constantly goes forth from God’s mouth.” (Matthew 4:4 The Passion Translation)
“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the Bread of Life. Come every day to Me and you will never be hungry. Believe in Me and you will never be thirsty.'” (John 6:35 The Passion Translation)
A New Fire – More than You Ever Had Before!
The Lord showed me a fresh baptism of fire coming upon those 55 and over. This is a fresh baptism of the fire of His presence and fire of His love – such a beautiful, deeper branding of His presence and love. Things that have attempted to hold you back will be burnt away. Things that have laid dormant will suddenly be ignited. A great activation is upon you and a great birthing is taking place. The Lord is positioning you for the more.
They are entering a season of the greatest encounters with Jesus and outpouring of the Spirit of God in their lives.
Through the preparation, the positioning, the purification and the pruning, God has been preparing us for what is upon us right now in the Body of Christ. Many of you have been through a time of intense fire, and just when you thought you were coming out, the fire got hotter. The Lord showed me that major breakthrough is upon you. There is a DOUBLE PORTION that is being released TO YOU and THROUGH YOU. I saw such powerful moves of the Spirit through you. Moves like signs, wonders and miracles have been moving through you and they have awakened the fire in you for MORE. They have awakened passion for Jesus like never before.
Many of you are being SUDDENLY awakened to what you carry and the weightiness of it. Things that have tried to hide you, lie to you or give you lack of direction, are suddenly falling off as you are awakened to what is possible in Jesus. You are awakening to the ideas of dreaming again, and you’re becoming free from disappointment or regrets from the past. The understanding of what you carry woke you out of slumber and filled you with a sense of excitement for the plans the Lord has for you. It gave you an understanding that it is not over, it’s just the beginning.
The enemy has come with fire to attempt to kill you, but you have remained steadfast as you saw the fourth man in the fire (Daniel 3:25). The Lord came with His fire and purged, purified, refined and prepared you.
I heard the Holy Spirit say: “Where you have been through intense seasons of fire, it is now time for you to move into a season of awakening, impartation and release of My fire through you. You are now to carry My fire more powerfully than you ever have. Great healing, restoration, increase and freedom was given to you in the fire. Now it is time for you to take your place in greater ways. Get ready for great favor to open up over you. Get ready for the activation of My Spirit upon you to FATHER and MOTHER many in the Body of Christ and in the world – to nurture, to model, to build, to assist and to mentor.”
Instantly, after receiving this word, I had a vision. I saw many 55 and over, who were sitting on the sidelines, be suddenly catapulted to the forefront in different realms and areas. The Spirit of God was sending them to spearhead a mighty awakening of the fathers and mothers in the Body of Christ and the world. There is a great move of the Spirit of God restoring the place of the fathers and mothers in the Body of Christ.
55s and Over, Thrive and Shine!
I heard the Lord say: “55s and over, you are a key!” This strong sense surrounded me that many who are 55 years old and over could have been feeling like there has been focus only on the younger generations within this great outpouring and move of the Spirit of God. The question has plagued many of them, “What do I carry?” They had a sense and feeling of being left behind, but the Lord showed me that what the Lord is doing now is multi-generationally. What the over 50s CARRY is a KEY to UNLOCK more of what God is wanting to manifest in the Church and into the nations of the world. He is going to release this THROUGH them. There is going to be a great UNLOCKING that will take place and it will be through those 55 and older! (Photo via Flickr)
“Heavenly wisdom will be unlocked and restored in many ways in the Body of Christ through those 55 and over.”
I saw these treasure chests of heavenly wisdom and revelation stored within many of these 55s and over, but it had not been called out, it had been overlooked – not appreciated and thrown to the side. But I saw JESUS HIMSELF placing His hand of release and activation upon these treasure chests that were deep within the hearts of those 55 and over. SUDDENLY, wisdom and revelation were flowing out like tidal waves into the Body of Christ. The wisdom and revelation were bringing an even greater unlocking, activation and impartation in the Body of Christ.
I saw many over 55 who have passionately sought after the wisdom of God. They have chased it, positioned themselves for it, and it has cost them a lot, but they received great revelation that wisdom is the most valuable commodity.
“Wisdom is the most valuable commodity – so buy it! Revelation knowledge is what you need – so invest in it!” (Proverbs 4:7 The Passion Translation)
It’s time for the 55s and over to arise in greater ways! A significant shifting season is upon you. It’s time! You’re going to THRIVE AND SHINE! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
