As I spent time with the Lord today, I asked Him, "What is Your Kingdom priority for this moment?" The answer came quickly and powerfully: "SATURATION!" God is ready to SATURATE you with His Presence! Are you positioning yourself to receive all He has? Keep reading for the full word.
Kingdom Priority: Saturation!
"Take all the time you need to come and be SATURATED in My Presence. For the refreshing rains of heaven are falling right now on My people, and those that hear the sound of the rains will come and soak in My revelations.
This is a time of unbridled revelation straight from the Throne. No censorship, freely open to all: all ages, all genders, all races, all people. Why shut yourself out? What is stopping you from entering in? Do not let the limitations of past seasons or current difficulties hinder you from pressing in to My goodness and encountering Me. No other source of wisdom will both SUSTAIN you and PREPARE you for what is coming.
Without the cleansing of this rain upon you, you will miss the upcoming move of revival. Let My rains wash off of you the filth and dirt of previous adventures in the Spirit so that you are ready to experience - taste, touch, and see - all the goodness of the coming ones!
That which has been 'caked' onto your eyes, covering you like scales: the old perceptions, the old limitations - has prevented you from seeing the new things I am doing. Let me wash your collective eyes so that what is now being revealed may also be perceived.
YOU CANNOT RECEIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT PERCEIVE! If you fail to take the time to watch and listen in this hour, you will miss the goodness of what I am planning. Be diligent to set aside TIME in the Spirit so that you are part of the "planning board" for the next phase of My Kingdom!"
Reflect and Pray
1. What is stopping you from taking time to be with the Lord? If you do take time to pray but still feel dry or weary, how can you "up your game" to meet the challenges of your life as it is now? (Example: with my children home from school all summer, there are multiple people in the house all the time. Extended prayer times, which I love, are few and far between! When my kids set up a tent in the yard one weekend, I took advantage of the new structure and still spent a day at home, "alone" with Jesus! That kind of creativity helps me meet the challenges of daily life so that I can continue to be sustained and prepared spiritually.) The enemy's goal is to weary you. God wants to both sustain and prepare you. When can you plan time to pray so that you are refreshed and ready?
2. Do you believe that God desires your input on Kingdom plans? Or have you been taught that you should simply "take orders" from God? Take a look at the following scriptures and determine for yourself: what does the Word say? Exodus 3:10-14; Genesis 18:22-33; Job 15:8; Jeremiah 23:18; Acts 1:24; Colossians 4:3; Hebrews 5:7.
3. Ask the Lord to show you what preconceived ideas or valid past experiences in the Spirit may be hindering you from seeing or receiving new ways God wants to work in your life. Just as we do not expect our children to remain the same forever, so God expects His kids to be growing and maturing, and experiencing new things! Are there changes you need to make in order to welcome the "new things" for your new spiritual season?
