Prophetic Word As We Enter 2023:
“It is Time to Clear Out the Clutter and the Clatter”
I tend to keep things fairly organized, but one of my methods of organization is to use stacks and piles. That way everything’s not strewn about, and I can look at a pile and know what it is. That stack over there is outlines for livestreams and shows. That one is notes for Sunday messages. That one is bits and pieces for the next book. That stack is paid bills that need to be filed for end-of-year tax reporting. That one is books publishers have sent me to consider interviewing their authors, etc.
One day recently, I looked around my office and suddenly had the sense that the stacks and piles were getting to be a bit much. It wasn’t like I was at hoarder-level heaps that were narrowing me out of my workspace, but I knew it was time to deal with them.
Once I got done with the stacks in my office, I started to notice how things had piled up on some of the bookshelves and end tables, as well. All of a sudden I felt a strong desire to go through the entire house and sort out all the places where things had piled up.
What began as a quick project to organize my office a bit, ended up being an entire afternoon and evening of clearing and cleaning. I filled the back of my Jeep with sacks for our local donation center. There was a half-dozen large bags of books to take to church and give away to our members. Plus, I was well on my way to filling both our large recycle and trash bins. It was on the third or fourth trip out to the bins that I asked the Lord why I had felt such a sudden desire to deal with all of this. Immediately, He spoke to me and said, “It is time to clear out all the clutter and the clatter.”
When He spoke, my whole body started to tingle and vibrate. So, when I came back in from the bins, I grabbed a notepad and pen, sat down on the couch, and waited for Him to unpack that a bit more. Specifically asking what the “clutter” and the “clatter” is.
He let me know that “clutter” is anything that has been getting in our way. I could feel that this was not even necessarily just sin issues, but anything that has been distracting us or taking up space in our minds and hearts. Habits. Practices. Relationships. False comforts, or anything else that has gotten out of order to the point of distraction.
And just like the clutter I was dealing with in the natural, the “clutter” the Lord is referring to is stuff that has “piled up” over the years – to the point of we barely even notice how it gets in the way and at times keeps us from Him. It could be something as simple as having gotten into the habit of checking emails or headlines first thing in the morning, which can often turn into an hour of dealing with correspondence or scrolling screens, instead of making Him our first focus in our day. Or “clutter” could be some long-term issue we’ve been dealing with for so long that it has us more focused on the facts of the situation than His Truth that is the solution”Clatter,” He said, were the thoughts, words, and emotions we allow that don’t sound like Jesus or that violate the standards of Love.
He has made us in His image and after His likeness, and we are here to be His representatives and re-presenters (see Genesis 1:26-28). Offense, bitterness, anger, discouragement, despair, murmuring, complaining, and cursing don’t do that. They are “clatter” – like the noisy gong or clanging cymbal in 1 Corinthians 13:1, where the Apostle Paul talks about what we sound like when we speak without love.
However, the love-less “clatter” that we are being invited to clear out is not only our thoughts and words. He let me know that it also refers to other sources, like the murmuring, complaining, and haranguing of media that often gets us stirred up in negative emotions to the point we are releasing more darkness into the darkness, as opposed to shattering that darkness with His light!
I sat for a bit to let all that He spoke sink in. I asked Holy Spirit for help in being aware of any clutter or clatter that I needed to clear up. It wasn’t long after that the Lord spoke to me again… “It will make room for the NEW that you have no idea is coming.”
How exciting is that?!
We are on the cusp of something so new, so big, so God… we really have no idea of what is coming. And the way we get there is to respond to His invitation to clear out the clutter and the clatter. This is not a stern rebuke from a disappointed deity. This is a tender invitation from an expectant Father who knows what is coming and longs for you (and me) to be a part of it .
As we come into 2023, it is time to clear out the clutter and the clatter to make room for something so new, we have no idea it’s coming!
Pray this with me:
Holy spirit, search my heart, my words, my thoughts, and my choices. Help me be aware of any clutter or clatter that needs to be dealt with and cleared out. Help me, always and in all things, seek first the Kingdom of God and draw nearer to my Beloved so that this year, I become an even greater, fuller, more powerful, and miraculous representative and re-presenter of my Heavenly Father here on earth. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen!

CHOOSE LOVE –MP3 Download from Robert Hotchkin
Love is more than an emotion. It is greater than a feeling. It is the fullness of who God is and all that He has given us. There is no greater power than love. When we choose it, we activate the tangible reality of the Kingdom in (and through) our lives. We also disempower all the traps, lies and lures of the enemy that can so subtly hinder, limit and interfere with us walking in the fullness of our calling. In this message, Robert reveals how you can carve out a Kingdom realm of love in your life. He also shares what blocks love, what steals love, and what keeps us from moving in the power of love.
BE THE SOLUTION – MP3 Downloads from Robert Hotchkin
There is a reason you didn’t go home to glory as soon as you got saved. It’s the same reason that God chose to manifest you right here, right now. It’s because you have a key role to play for His Kingdom on the earth. These three sessions will make you aware of the tricks and traps the enemy uses to try to minimize your effectiveness for the Kingdom, as well as the power you have in Christ to be God’s solution in any situation you face and every sphere of influence you are called to.
