Daughters Of Victory! Step Into Your Land of Promise! – Prophetic Word by Annamarie Strawhand

Daughters Of Victory! Step Into Your Land of Promise! – Prophetic Word by Annamarie Strawhand

The Lord Jesus Christ – The Lion Of Judah is calling up His daughters for this time!  I heard Him speak this to me out of a powerful vision – and I knew it was a message for many of His daughters currently in the time of waiting and wilderness:

“You My daughter are being called out of the wilderness.  You have been seeking Me, spending hours at My feet. Even into the night watch you have come before Me with your prayers and petitions.  I have been preparing you. I have been growing you, strengthening you. My Spirit has been working with you, mentoring you to hear My voice and instruction, bringing you the revelation and clarity you needed and the wisdom to be ready for your Divine Purpose.  It is time. Come now daughter! Rise up, walk and follow Me boldly! I, the Lion Of Judah am leading you out of the wilderness into Your Destiny. It is time to step into Your Land of Promise!”

While in prayer, I felt the strong presence of the Holy Spirit come upon me and I went into a deep vision.  In this vision, I am standing on the edge of a green, grassy fertile land looking far off into a dry, sand driven desert. I begin to hear music in my spirit.  It sounded like an ancient Hebrew tribal sound, with a steady slow drum beat. I look as far as I can to the desert horizon to where the music is coming from.   I see a Lion, a mighty Lion coming out of the desert. He is flanked by two very large Warrior Angels on horses. They are walking with a strong stride, almost in slow motion, but I can sense the power, purpose and authority.  Walking behind the Lion, I see in a large ‘V’ formation are women – lines and rows of women! I hear in my spirit the voice of the Holy Spirit: “These are the Daughters of Zion! My daughters of Victory! I have prepared them and now they are ready!”  I watched this amazing scene. Hundreds of women walking out of the desert with strength, determination and purpose! Women of all colors, shapes and sizes! I could tell these were women of strong faith and a deep love for the Lord. I had a sense that they have overcome much to be here.

I looked, and each of these women are carrying different things – some of them had scrolls, large books and gold feather pens. Some had baskets of fruit. I also saw some carrying full satchels draped over their shoulder, the satchels were filled with beautifully designed things they had made.  Some women had what looked like blueprints or house plans. These women looked strong, confident and capable. I even saw young and older women with bows and arrows, some with axes and tools, some had musical instruments. There were mothers carrying their babies on their hip. I noticed the women in the front were carrying large jugs of water, oil and wine. The women with the water are actually pouring some of it on the dry soil before the rest of the women as they step ahead.  They were wearing golden sandals – when I looked at their feet my spirit quickened to the word in Isaiah 52:7:  “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”   

The hundreds of women in the rows and rows as far as I could see were wearing flowing fabrics that were billowing in a wind gently pushing them forward.  On the ends of each line of women I saw more Warrior Angels on horseback. I looked further back and bringing up the rear behind all the women were more Warrior Angels on horses.  It was a sight to behold. I looked again at the great Lion who was leading them – I then saw a magnificent crown on the Lion’s head. I knew it was the Lion of Judah! The Lord Jesus Himself!  I hear in my spirit: “These women have activated their gifts and anointings during this wilderness time. Today they step into their promise to fulfill what they have been called to do for My Kingdom.”

Then I saw some of the women with mantels – bright colored flowing scarves of silk draping over their shoulders!  I realized those women had asked for these mantels and received them by overcoming great adversity while they matured in their wilderness season – I realized that these women were called to be leaders in their area of influence.  I looked over myself for a moment – I was dressed in the same way.

In the vision as I am witnessing all this into my spirit, I ask the question in my mind; “Where are these women going with what they are carrying?”  The answer comes to me from the Lord Jesus, The Lion of Judah in my Spirit: “My faithful daughters are here and taking the Land for Me! You see? I have anointed them! It has always been their Promise! I have a place prepared for them in government, libraries and schools!  The women with plans and blueprints will build homes, churches, raise up tent meetings and revivals and restore buildings and towns for MY Glory! The daughters with the tools and axes will chop down the old, clear the fields, expand tents and pound in the tent pegs and help My people plant and grow great harvests for Me! The daughters with fruit, oil, water, wine and satchels will be in ministry and the marketplace!  The women with the scrolls, pens and musical instruments have books, music and films I have commissioned them to write and produce! The mothers and their children will be restoring family life according to My Word and bring healing and restoration to families and My children! They will be the nurturers of the poor and broken in their community.  Families will grow with more children, fathers and husbands shall return home and be blessed! The daughters with bows and arrows will be the prayer warriors and the intercessors! Do you see? Do you understand? I have prepared them for this time of Promise and by faith they have boldly stepped into it today! I am pleased with My Daughters!”

Then as I observed the vision with that last question in my spirit – I looked to the Lion and He became King Jesus as He stepped across the green line and turned, overlooking them – raised His Scepter up to heaven and then towards them and Blessed the women. He was giving them the command to step into the green land of Promise!  I felt His satisfaction, pleasure and He smiled and said, “Go and tell this Annamarie! It is time! My daughters must not be afraid and trust Me! I need them now and I am calling them out of the wilderness! Teach them to come to Me boldly and ask of Me! I have reached My Scepter out to them!  I will answer their request! I will lead them out of the wilderness and My Angels are with them! But they must seek ME so I can prepare them. It is time for My daughters to step into their Promise!”

Then the vision ended. I knew what to do.  I was assigned by the Lord to reveal this word prophetically today.  I thank You, King Jesus for trusting me to share this important word for Your daughters.  Women of God, I encourage you! It is time to take your destiny boldly and in faith! Activate today, go outside of your homes, speak to the heavens and by faith say: “Lord Jesus, thank You for coming for me! I now by faith take my first step into the Land of Promise that You have for me!  I am ready to be prepared and led by Your Holy Spirit and I accept the destiny You have for me right now in your name King Jesus O Lion Of Judah! Amen!”

Then take a physical step, right where you are, symbolically, by faith and praise Him!  The Lion of Judah is here and He is leading you out of your wilderness into your Promise, O Daughter of Victory!!  Hallelujah!!

Love, Annamarie



This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, “Faith At Full Speed – Your High Horsepower Manual To Success” I told this story on my Youtube broadcast on March 20th 2019 – and everyone was so moved by this story I wanted to share it here.
Uncle Dan – Basement Millionaire……
I was much younger when this amazing thing happened for my Uncle Dan, a Retired NAVY Chief. In the late 70’s and early 80’s after the NAVY my uncle had tried his hand at many different jobs and businesses looking to create something good for his family after leaving the NAVY, Including running a farm stand during the summers where we would go and help stack watermelons and lettuce – we had so much fun working with him and our cousins. Uncle Dan was a hard worker – he always put 110% into everything he did and a he was a natural leader. He loved people, and was good at creating solutions for others. These were his God given gifts.
One year in the mid 1980’s he was working a 9-5 job at General Electric Company in Upstate NY. He was building and organizing their computer systems and client training, which included military contracts. He had done a great job for them, and they sent him and his family to the west coast to build a program out there for the company. As soon as he arrived in California – he threw himself fully into the project, created the program, hired people and had everything in place, purchased a home and bought furniture ready for his family to move in.
A few days later, the GE Executives came to him out of the blue and said they wanted to drop the program out west with no real explanation. My uncle could not understand why, because everything was all set up perfectly and ready to go. He went and had meetings with them and no matter what he did, he could not convince them to keep it. They wanted him to just shut it down and move back east. This really upset my uncle and he looked the GE Executives in the eyes and said, “Well, I resign from this company and I will go and get these contracts myself!” The GE Executives laughed at him! This made my uncle even more determined, and he told them: “Watch me.”
Uncle Dan and his family moved back home to Syracuse, NY to a rented house. My aunt was working in a shoe store to make ends meet. She started to see her husband go down in the basement every day into a makeshift office with a phone and an old desktop computer and spend hours on end working on something top secret. One day, he came upstairs and said, “Maryellen – I am going to go and get these military training contracts. I am going to go up against GE and all the other big companies and get it. I am going to be working on my proposal and I just need you to make me coffee and meals – and be patient while I do this.”
My aunt was always a devoted military wife, and fully supported her husband on this next adventure. She trusted in his gifts and believed he could do it. As for me, in my early twenties at the time – I remember when my uncle was taking this serious “basement time” because when I went over there to hang out with my cousins – my uncle came upstairs and it looked like he had not slept for weeks! He was wearing a rumpled t-shirt and his beard was all grown out – I hardly recognized him!
My aunt said to us, “Try to be quiet because your uncle is working on something very important, please do not disturb him.”
At the time I really did not “get” what was going on or the importance of it until later in my adult life.
One day after weeks and weeks of “basement time”, my Aunt said my Uncle got up early in the morning, shaved, put on a nice suit and with his finished proposal, he said to my aunt: “Maryellen, when I go out this door today our lives could change immediately, I am going to give this everything I got – when I come back home we could be millionaires if they accept my proposal.” He was off to his meeting to present his proposal to the government to go up against all the corporate big guns.
Now that is FAITH and knowing without a doubt you have the gift to do something great with no fear.
A few days later an official letter came from the US Government, my Uncle Dan opened it. It was good news. He got the military contracts. He beat out GE and all the other big corporations! My Aunt said he held up the letter and yelled “Maryellen, we are millionaires – go quit your job at the shoe store and then we are going out to dinner!”
I remember things changed quickly for my uncle and his family, and there were celebrations and joyful happenings at their house with lots of food! Uncle Dan went on for many successful years doing these military contracts, they traveled to Spain, and took my grandmother on a trip to Italy. My cousins all got new computers almost every Christmas and they moved to a beautiful big house in Maryland. He retired 15 years later to Virginia Beach with a nice financial nest egg and was asked back into the NAVY as a Master Chief (which is one of the NAVY’s highest honors to serve as a mentor to other officers and upcoming officers).
I loved my uncle and I looked up to him – but I did not realize the lesson in all this and the impact of what he had done back in that “basement time”. I was young and all I saw was one day he was wearing an old t-shirt and growing a beard, and the next day he was driving a brand new Lincoln Continental and we were all going out for steak and lobster. Looking back, I really wish I had taken the time to understand what was really happening and asking more questions and learning more for my young mind.
In October of 2011, my Uncle Daniel Malfitana sadly passed away from cancer. He knew when his time was near so he told my aunt to take him to the NAVY Hospital where they stood and saluted him “Master Chief” as he left this world. At his funeral, they told the story in detail on how he got the big government contracts, the time in the basement and what he was preparing down there – and I was absolutely floored. I was so inspired and so encouraged by the fact that he knew what his gifts were, and he was upset that the people he worked for would not use and appreciate his gifts! He knew he was meant for something greater and he had enough faith and determination to go up against one of the biggest corporations in America (GE giant). Uncle Dan used what he had at hand, had faith and took his “garage time” (basement time) to make it happen. Uncle Dan, by great faith went up against the giant and defeated him. (who’s laughing now…)
I come from that DNA, that strong family bloodline, but I now also have the DNA of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. I sat in that funeral saying goodbye to my Uncle, in his very last moment he left me a huge gift – I knew I could do anything and I could defeat my giants in front of me! I could get that big dream. Yes I can! It changed my life when I came to that realization.
We are meant to use our God given gifts fearlessly. Even if people laugh at us. God is behind it, nothing can come against it.
Think, what is in your DNA – who in your family did something extraordinary and brave? What did God put into your family bloodline that you also have? Most of all WHO lives inside of you now? Jesus said, the KINGDOM of God is within you. You have the power and might of Almighty God – King of the Universe is with you! Time for you to RUN towards that Giant. You will take the giant down and you will win!
“ David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” – 1 Samuel 17:45
