This morning the Lord encouraged me with these words – “I am digging up your fallow ground because I am ready to pour out My rain. My rain will fill your furrows and My reign will level the plane.”
“Even as you have felt the pain of my digging those areas of hard ground – old mindsets, habits, lies the enemy had sown – this is so every place that the sole of your foot treads will prosper. The ground must be broken up so that the seeds long buried will come to the surface as I pour out the rain of My Spirit. Those seeds will receive living water, come to life and prosper. I speak to dry, lifeless places in your soul: receive a fresh infusion of My life!”
I dreamt of being on a journey that was filled with obstacles, twists and turns. There was flooding and I got stuck in mud. There was snow and I had no boots. I heard the Lord say, “I am bringing you into a wide open place, but the way is narrow. It has required a training through hard places so that you would lean in hard to hear My voice and follow closely. This was necessary training, for the wide open place can only be traversed accurately by My Spirit.”
“A fresh wind of My Spirit is now being poured out, clearing away the clouds of confusion that have blocked your vision. For now you will see that I am moving in your midst.”
“The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” (Nahum 1:3 KJV)
“Now faith is rising. Now the path is clearer. Now you can see the places the enemy has stopped the flow of the wells of living water that were dug by My Spirit in times past. As you see, and by your will agree to walk with Me, I will bring help for the work at hand. You can not do this alone. There are many wells the enemy has covered and others will help them to be discovered. Some of My wells have been forgotten, where troubles and cares have brought a blinding to heart and eyes. There is a shift in vision causing reposition. Many will realize areas of compromise that brought a blinding to their eyes. Even as Hagar was despaired in her circumstances, expecting death for herself and her son, an angel was sent in response to his cries. I opened Hagar’s eyes, showing her the well that was in her midst. I have not forgotten you; I have seen your tears and heard the cries of intercession rise and the veil is being removed from your eyes.” (Genesis 21:9-20)
“And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.” (Genesis 21:19 KJV)
Holy Spirit reminded me of a storm that occurred in San Diego around 30 years ago that caused a major transformation of landscape. It happened to be on the same day (Martin Luther King Day). After the storm, I took my children and dog to the nearby beach. We stood at the top of the cliff and were shocked by what we saw. Most of the sand was gone and huge boulders were exposed that had been hidden. It was an eerie, disconcerting moment. In fact, the dog growled and her hair stood straight up.
Holy Spirit prompted me to look up “level the plane.” According to Merriam-Websters dictionary, one of the definitions of plane is a level of existence, consciousness, or development. I heard the Lord say, “Do not be surprised in the days ahead. Do not let your heart be filled with dread. The furrows are dug to receive My rain; the landscape of your life will not look the same. For I am shifting and filling, removing and replacing. The blinders are being removed as the winds of change are coming and you will see what has been blocking you from moving forward. Even now there is a fresh rain that is filling to make you willing. For the time of transformation is upon you. As I level the plane you will see new lands to attain for My reign.”
Many are running to and fro, trying to find the way to go. Hold on to Me in the midst of the storm, and I will fill you and give you new form; this will become the new norm. This new is what was and what will be, but you must have eyes that can see to be free. It is time to uncap the wells that have been stopped and you will see an outpouring of My spirit of such magnitude that the mouth of the enemy will be stopped. For this is a time of new paradigms. I am filling your furrows with water. Those dead, dry places will bring forth life in this season of birth, and your heart will rejoice in an outpouring of mirth!
I am hearing by the Spirit of God that He is forming a new order. “My rain is coming; the furrows will be filled. The flooding of My Spirit will come in strong and remove every obstacle. I am forming a new order. I am making the crooked places straight. Do not be surprised, see with spiritual eyes and testify of My goodness even in the midst of chaos. Look to Me in the midst, hold on tight, My justice will make every wrong become right. For I hate an unjust balance, all the weights of the bag are My work.
“A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are his work.” (Proverbs 16:11 KJV)
My deep furrowing has prepared your heart to receive the fullness of rain. Declare My goodness, knowing that I am working in your midst. Bring your offerings of praise, and a strong standard will I raise. Raise Your Praise as a banner and the banner of My faithfulness will be seen. My rain will fill your furrows and My reign will level the plane.”
“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.” (Isaiah 40:3-5 KJV)
