Walking Through the Fire of Oppression and into Our Promise Land

Steward Well Our Time

One of the gifts that the Father has given us is time. Yet it is something we take for granted. We don’t seek Him like we should. He is warning us to steward well the time he has given us. We need Him now more than ever, so train yourself to be still in His presence and to hear His voice today. Reflect on the Father’s call and look at what you are doing with your time, your gifts and blessings He has given you.

Testing Where We Are Spiritually

We are in a new season that will test where we are spiritually. In this season you will either sink or swim. So, search for the Father with all your heart. When you seek Him; is when you will find Him. So, examine your hearts as you go through the fire of oppression where you will be purified but don’t worry the flames won’t consume you. It will bring you to a place were everything is naked and exposed before His eyes.

Great Testing of Our Heart and Faith

This is a great testing of the heart and our faith, like never before, in order for a shaking and stretching to occur. There will be a shaking off of the old things that weigh us down and things that have been rooted within us.

Outpouring of The Spirit

There will soon be a great outpouring of the spirit. A time of refreshing and rest. Faith filled rest. In this time of faith-rest we will enter into a different realm of fullness, but don’t let this time past you by. We have been hurting, in pain and not fully understanding this season we are in, just trust the process. The Lord is calling us to go higher but in order to do so we have to go deeper.

Deeper Place

Take us deeper; into a new place were the crooked paths are made straight. Where rivers are created in dry wastelands. Father let there be an emptying of ourselves and fill us up with You until we overflow. Take us into the Secret Place, the Holy of Holies were Your presence resides. It’s during this time in His presence that He will release specific instructions. Once we receive our instructions be quick to obey them. Remember the Father gives freely but He can also take away. So, pay attention and accept His instructions and correction.

Our Promise Land

We are so close to our promise land but it is unchartered territory. Although it is an unknown territory don’t be afraid for the Lord goes with us through the deep waters and through the fire. He has ransomed us and called us by name for such a time as this. We are pioneers called to do a new thing. A great awakening is taking place within us, within His people and within His church. He is fulfilling His prophetic promises, this hour. Know that the Fathers ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours. His plans are perfect and He is surrounding His faithful servants with abundant favor because others were given in exchange for us because we are precious to Him.

New Levels

So be prepared, you are about to be propelled into a new level. What has worked in the past will no longer work. If we do what we have always done we will keep getting what we’ve always had. New opportunities are coming but they will never arrive unless we take advantage our time and gifts now. It may be uncomfortable at first and feel like you are in the wilderness but this season will re-align us and transition us into a new era.

Referencing Scriptures

God, please make my heart new and clean. And make my spirit strong and true, deep inside me.

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.’

Isaiah 43:1-2

 “But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness.

Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my chosen people can be refreshed.’
