Have you ever had a prophetic dream you knew God wanted you to share—but it was for a later time?
This happened to me when I had a dream on Christmas Day last year, and now eight months later, I hear the Holy Spirit say, “This word is for right now!”


Water Hung from the Ceiling

Waterfall, "God is turning your ceiling into a new beginning"In this dream, I was in a room, observing a ceiling that stretched above me.
And everywhere across that ceiling, hung water in great droplets, low and heavy. In the dream, I knew that there was a “water table” above that ceiling. A saturated place.

Then suddenly, I saw a hand in front of me, stretched out. The palm was open, and I saw that this hand bore a red nail scar.
It was the hand of Jesus!

As I woke, I realized that it was still 25th December 2020—Christmas night.


Ready to Fall

A ceiling can have a positive meaning:

  • It can represent shelter, protection, or being undercover
  • A ceiling can speak of your home

I believe that for many, a ceiling represents waiting or confinement. But a ceiling can also be symbolic of a barrier to progress. For example, we sometimes talk of “bumping our heads against a ceiling”.
You may relate to this, or to feeling there’s a hindrance between you and a new level.

By the grace of God, a ceiling can be the beginning of something new in your life!


They Touched Heaven

On the Day of Pentecost, God’s people were waiting in an upper room (Acts 2).
And that place of confinement became a birthplace of outpouring.
This was an event that touched nations and made history!

There was a time when Paul and Silas were imprisoned in a dungeon (Acts 16).
As they began to sing and praise God, Heaven visited that jail. Chains fell off and the doors opened!
They may have been in stocks on the ground, but the sound of their voices touched Heaven.

No ceiling can stand between you and God’s promise for your life.

Today, whatever your own “stuck place”, or waiting place is, hear your Father singing over you.

That place of confinement is going to become the birthplace for the next move of God in your life.


The Holy Spirit says, “Now!”

A prophetic dream has its own time frame.
And when you first receive it, you may not know what it pertains to.
So, you jot it down. But there comes a day when the Holy Spirit says, “now!”

Here in Melbourne, Australia, we live in one of the most locked-down cities in the world.
Now, we are in our 6th lockdown and have been confined for more than 200 days since the start of the pandemic.

A few days ago, it felt as though the ceiling was closing in on me. How I longed for wide-open spaces! But at that moment, it suddenly struck me.

I was in the place of the dream, and I was also in the SPACE of the dream!


The Promise is Within Reach

The water, hanging heavily from the ceiling.
It is for all of us right now.
Oh the glorious promises of God!
They are not out of our grasp—they are within reach.
The promises of God are accessible!

If you relate to feeling confined, be assured that God is turning your frustration into fruitfulness.
His favor is working on your behalf!
Hear Jesus say, “I am coming to your ceiling!”


“Pull Up a Chair”

Have you received a prophetic dream or vision, and it’s coming to mind right now?
I encourage you to revisit such dreams and visions. Meditate on them with the help of the Holy Spirit, for His gifts are not rigid but like a river!
And perhaps God has more to show you about that dream or vision, as you wait on Him.

Maybe, He has chapter two, or three!

As I prayed again about the dream, I heard Jesus say, “Pull up a chair!” (Rev 3:20)
That’s when I realized that if I pulled up a chair—even stood on a footstool—I could touch that ceiling. The water was hanging heavy ready to fall—and even though it seemed out of reach at first, I still could step into it!

And so, with the eye of faith, I became immersed in the water and it fell around me, reaching the floor below.


Destined to be a Vessel

Sometimes we are waiting for God to move. Yet He has taken the first step and is waiting for us to respond! 

Today know that through you, the water of the Spirit will become a mighty river that touches the earth.
You are destined by God to be a vessel through whom that living water will flow.

“… He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Rom 8:32 NKJV)

Now, that ceiling that has frustrated you, represents a new beginning.
And you will discover His gifts in the very place you least expected.

I’ve been privileged to receive extraordinary prophetic mentoring, as one of a ministry team of prophets and teachers with David McCracken Ministries.

But it hasn’t always been that way. When it comes to spiritual gifts, I know what it is like to go on a long journey, and often a lonely one.

My own experience of struggling to find good mentoring is why I am extremely passionate about helping others learn how to hear God’s voice, and grow in their gifts of prophecy and discernment.

The best mentoring and teaching I can give you is now rolled into this one place, on the Enliven School of Prophecy and Discernment.

You can view and sign up for my self-paced video lecture series in the Enliven Prophetic School here. Choose between a small monthly subscription or a one-off payment with no expiry date.

  1. Hi Helen,

    Firstly, I want to say thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us. I only found your blog about 6 months ago but a number of the prophetic words you have shared have spoken to me.

    At about the same time I found your blog, the Holy Spirit told me to “make room.” At first, I thought that this was something I needed to do (make more room in my life for Him by surrendering more, giving more, serving more etc.) But He quickly revealed to me: “No, watch how I am going to make room in you!”

    Over the last 6 months, the Holy Spirit has been speaking to me about this room (the doors, the walls, the floor, a table) and less than 2 weeks ago He started to reveal “the ceiling” of this room to me.

    Your prophetic dream about Jesus coming to my ceiling and the subsequent word you have brought forth lines up with/ties into and confirms so many things the Holy Spirit has been sharing with me. This has encouraged me greatly today so I wanted to let you know.

    For me, the ceiling in the room He has been making in me is one of intercession. Jesus’ outstretched arm/opened hand reaching through my ceiling represents His intercession for me! And as I enter this room, close the door behind me to pray (and give my gifts to Him in private) He will reward me by pouring out His Spirit/promises.

    There is so much more I could share and say but I will leave it there for now. Thank you again for your ministry and this blog.

    Blessings,
    Lauren

    1. Hi Lauren, that is so precious, and oh, the glory of what He is revealing to you in this place where Heaven touches earth through your prayer.
      I say amen, He is making room in you a season of enlargement <3

  2. Praise King Jesus Helen,
    I bless the Lord for using you to share the timely message,
    I have never given birth but in this season I feel like I’m in my final days of giving birth (spiritually) I’m tired all the time gasping for air, very weak and tired, I’m looking for my midwife to help me push the baby.

    God bless you Woman of God

  3. Good afternoon Helen
    I can relate to this dream.
    I was praying in my former church one day and as I looked up at the ceiling there was a sack of water hanging it stretched from one side of the ceiling to the next and it was heavy with water .
    Thank you for Sharing your dream .

    DEAR SISTER HELEN I READ YOUR EMAIL REGARDING THE DREAM ABOUT THE CEILING AND IMMEDIATELY SAW IN THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM PSALM 91; HE THAT DWELLS IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH, SHALL ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW [ HIS CEILING, HIS OWN VERY PRESENCE], AND I BELIEVE THAT UNDER THE CEILING AND SHADOW OF HIS ABIDING PRESENCE, IS A REMINDER THAT GOD IS EVER PRESENT ALWAYS SURROUNDING YOU, AND THE APOSTLE PAUL WROTE TO THE EPHESIANS, HE( THE LORD), IS IN YOU ABOVE ALL THROUGH ALL.
    EPHESIANS 4:1-7 GOD MOST HIGH WHO HAS CALLED YOU OUT OF THE DARKNESS OF SIN HAS REDIRECTED THE STEPS OF YOUR LIFE TO FULFILL HIS PURPOSE IN BUILDING UP THE INHABITANTS OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THAT WILL HOLD SPECIFIC POSITIONS WITHIN THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THIS DEEP PROFOUND DREAM ABOUT THE CEILING AND IT’S MEANING IS A PROPHETIC REMINDER THAT GOD IS EVER PRESENT ALWAYS SURROUNDING YOU. FOR IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS PEACE [ SHALOM] , AND JOY, AND THIS DEEP PROFOUND PEACE IS TO BRING CONTENTMENT IN HIS STRENGTH AND GRACE THROUGH FAITH FOR WHAT LIES AHEAD OF YOU THAT HE IS ABOUT TO REVEAL AS YOU’RE BEING ESTABLISHED IN THE PLAN FOR YOUR NEXT ASSIGNMENT, ALL GOOD IS YOURS. UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF THIS DREAM IS DEEPER THAN WHAT’S SEEN ON THE SURFACE, BECAUSE IT IS HIS OWN GLORY TO CONCEAL A MATTER, BUT ALSO THE GLORY OF KINGS TO SEARCH IT OUT: PROVERBS 25:2 , REVELATION KJV, AND HATH MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS: GOD IS NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSON OR GENDER, A KING OF GOD IS JUST A NOBLE HONOR OF POSITION OF AUTHORITY AND DOMINION POST WITHIN THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND NO DIFFERENT THAN A WOMAN BEING CONSIDERED WORTHY TO BE A PRESIDENT OF A COUNTRY, AND WHY YESHUAHAMISHIAC JESUS CHRIST IS KING OF ALL KINGS AND LORD OF ALL LORDS. THE LORD JESUS CHRIST BLESS YOU UNPRECEDENTEDLY AND GIVE YOU HIS ABUNDANT SHALOM AMEN AND SMILE ON YOUR FACE AS HE SURROUNDING YOU WITH HIS ETERNAL LOVE! HALLELUJAH SHALOM
