There are times when our Father’s word to us is simply, ‘Rest and be replenished.’ And the Holy Spirit comes to us like a gentle breeze.
But there are other times our Father comes to us with His earthmoving equipment.
He is digging deep.
If you feel as though you have had the deep dealings of God lately, or circumstances have tried and sifted you, be encouraged:
Your Father is making a way! His glory is about to be revealed.
‘Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 40:4-5 NIV
It’s Time to Enter the Miracle Zone
It’s time to let go of past information about who you are!
It is time to let go of what history has said about who you are—and other people’s opinions about who you are.
It’s time to enter the miracle zone of who your Heavenly Father says you are.
‘Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.’ (Heb 12:1)
As the writer to the Hebrews indicates, sin can trip us up and prevent our progress.
- But not ‘everything that hinders’ is sin
There may be positive labels and definitions, or even prophetic pictures that we’ve had in the past—that have been superseded. At these times, God says:
‘I want to give you new definitions for a new season. Don’t settle for less than all I have for you.’
Out of the Mold and Into the More
‘More’ means that what God has for us, is outside the confines of our past and current experience.
- A ‘mold’ (mould) is a container that has an imprint or pattern, that can be used again and again
- It produces a predictable result
“And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see.” (I Samuel 3:2 NKJV)
Recently, I felt the Holy Spirit stirring me with an alert—a warning that in the prophetic, many of us are in danger of becoming like Eli.
The ageing priest was losing his eyesight; he was lying down at rest in his usual place.
It was his comfort zone.
In the meantime, young Samuel was in the intimate presence of God and hearing His voice.
I believe a Samuel anointing is here. A fresh encounter with the voice of God is available for all of us.
More and Prophetic Ministry
It is time to stir out of our ‘usual place’ and to seek the intimate Presence of God.
- To have the attitude of being novices in the new.
Those of us who are prophetic seers and visionaries, and who have felt jaded at times, are about to be awakened and refreshed.
The name ‘Samuel’ means ‘heard of God’ (1 Sam 1:20, Strong’s H8050)
So, be hungry; ask and seek God for a fresh encounter with Him.
Be open to discover new ways of hearing God’s voice and responding to the Holy Spirit.
The Samuel era is here.
Hear the Spirit calling. It’s time to emerge; to get out of the mold and into the more of God.
Prayer of Response
- ‘Father today I choose to say ‘yes’ to You. I say ‘yes!’ to Your dream, to Your destiny for my life.
