The Lord has been giving me a prophetic (meaning: accurately describing or predicting what will happen in the future) word for each season we have moved into. This is the sixth season we are moving into with a specific word.
(You may remember the post I shared a couple months ago called Spring of Suddenlies.)
It has been incredible to watch how the Lord has come through on his promises and what he is doing!
A while ago I saw a picture of a catapult and the Lord placing us into it. That represented HOPE. Hope that we were going somewhere! Hope that he was using us!
Then the release came in late August. I felt like we were flying crazily through the air. Out of control, and not sure exactly where we were going. We felt vision, but didn’t see it. We knew because God had promised us that there was a future, but it didn’t make sense.
But as I saw us flying through the air the Lord showed me the next part. It’s the word for fall. The picture for autumn. It’s the season we are entering.
We landed. We were face down in the new territory.
This is the FURTHER FALL! This is the season where we find ourselves further than we should be! Further than we could have expected!
This fall is where we land!
This will be unknown territory! We will wonder how we got here.
Some of you are going to stand up in the new land and be excited by the adventure of the unknown!
The devil is going to try to derail us by planting fear in our hearts. We need to be on guard.
You might feel the need to PANIC. You might feel the need to SCRAMBLE to be ready for this new place.
You might grow angry and say I wasn’t prepared for this! I didn’t pack the right stuff. No one told me we were headed here!
But this is what the Lord says!
Trust me. I am the God who has FLUNG you here. Although you may not have a plan, I DO. I will give you strategies. I will give you ENERGY. This is a divinely inspired season, so you will need divinely inspired strategies!
The Lord is asking us to hold onto this verse during this next season:
“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you and he will lead you in every decision you make. Be intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go” Proverbs 3:5 (TPT)
As you press into him, he is going to make everything clear! Some of you are going to experience unexpected success in your business or an unimagined promotion at work. You will have favour from God that will blow your socks off!
You are going to find yourself with more boldness, more wisdom, more spiritual maturity than you should have in the natural course of your walk with God, because he has supernaturally flung you further!
But remember, he did this because time is running out! Jesus is coming back and he needs us to be FURTHER, mature, grown up and ready to spread the HOPE of Jesus everywhere!
