When I write what I am hearing from the Lord, I don’t often process it until I’ve finished. It helps me to keep my own thoughts out of the writing.
What I am seeing for the past few months is the Lord communicating a similar message with different visuals.
My last post used a visual of a winter tree and letting go of withered leaves. This post is,again,about letting go of things and coming into our true destiny.
It’s easy to get caught up in this world which is why we are to guard our hearts and transform our minds daily with His living word, the Bible. Everything we expose ourselves to feeds into our spirit either in a good way or a bad way. It must be a daily heart check with Holy Spirit. When we fail to do so, we end of carrying a lot of unnecessary weight.
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
CONCLUSION: We are in a season of transition and it is very important that we let go of anything that hinders in the new season. God wants us to obtain all He has promised and we must free ourselves of the clutter so we can obtain the promises.
COME OUT OF THE CAVE
Some people have felt like Lazarus lying in your grave clothes and hidden away from the life that they know God promises. Just like Lazarus, they belong to Jesus, believe in Jesus, but remain bound in their grave clothes.
Today Jesus is calling you to come out. Take steps to encounter Jesus outside the cave. Allow your grave bandages to be removed from your hands and feet for you are the hands and feet of Jesus and he is calling you to your destiny. Rise up and come forth!
The following was recorded November 2, 2016 as I was seeking the Lord:
It is time. The time has come. Many have reached the end of themselves and they can no longer offer only so much of themselves to the Lord.
The old life/old covering has become itchy and uncomfortable like a wool sweater. For many, right now, you are like a sheep that needs shearing so a new coat can come forth. I see many layers that have been piled upon your shoulders…old and tarnished coverings that do nothing but weigh you down.
I see old hats and coverings that distort your thoughts.
Today, I want to tear off these grave clothes and coverings that only hide your light, my glory. Release them.
Allow me to replace them with your true covering, pure and righteous.
It will be as new life. You will feel lighter. You will breathe easier. You will see and hear more clearly. You will feel, perhaps for the first time in your earthly life. For what you thought was feeling was so dulled by the weight you’ve carried.
It is time to release it all and surrender these grave clothes.
My people are meant to walk in life and not death, in light and not darkness, in health and not sickness, in wholeness and not brokenness.
What are you holding onto? What needs to be released today?
What needs to be emptied so I may fill it?
