STEP INTO THE RIVER

It was about 5 am that I moved from my prayer chair to the bed. “Ok Lord, time for me to get a little sleep now.” Or maybe not… It seems that these times tend to be when the Lord visits us. It seems that it’s those times when you have prayed and waited and prayed and waited and finally “given up” for the night that the Lord says “Here I am.” I laid down on my bed and was caught into a dream that unfolded before me with someone narrating the dream to me as it went.

There were hundreds of people and even more angels standing at a transfer station on a river bank, next to a river that was quite wide, deep and flowing with a powerful current. I had a knowing that this river would take each person to their unique destination.. The voice was explaining that this was a new season, a new direction with a more powerful manifestation of God’s presence. The people were being directed into the flow and the angels were going in also. The power of the current meant that all we had to do was allow the current to take us.

I heard the voice say “This is a new move and you will need to pray new prayers. I had a sense that we had to pray “bigger” prayers that matched up with the flow we were in.

6 Just make sure you ask empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next. 7–8 When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition? (James 1:6-8 TPT)

I knew the powerful current was the Holy Spirit. He was empowering this journey and the Heavenly host were encamped around us even as they flowed with us.

…’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6 NKJV)

One thing that stood out was that everyone was there for a purpose. No one had to be prompted to get into the river. They all knew what they were there for. This was a confirmation that those who had been given words from the Lord were ready to go. People were launching into the deep without hesitation.

Did I know where everyone was going? No, I did not. I knew that this was not an issue as long as we stayed in the flow of His spirit. His power would move us even as we yielded to it.

Are you ready?
