"It is time! It is time! It is time to rise up and fly! The season of flight is upon you, to stretch your wings and fly. In flight you will gain a new perspective, one you were always intended to have. You started on the ground but you'll end in the air! You begin in the flesh but you soar in the Spirit. Rise up, rise up my dove, and come away with Me into realms of the Spirit previously unknown to you.
Open your heart to Me more fully so that your spiritual eyesight is sharpened. For I would give you the eyes of an eagle and the wings of a dove. You have needed neither of these on the ground, but both are essential to your survival in the Spirit," says the Lord.
"Do not let past circumstances hold you bound, for they were never meant to hold you, but to FREE you. Yes, the discomfort you experience is always - I say ALWAYS - meant to drive you upward to My glory in greater measure. Flee the discomfort as you rise to the sound of My voice, directing you, wooing you, calling you up, up and away!
I will always provide the way of escape, the path through the wilderness, and the means to come up higher. Soar with Me, fly away to your restful place and be at peace above the storms, above the valley of death. I will show you how to navigate both winds and currents so that you end up in a better place than before. Your safety is not on the ground but in the air, soaring at My commands. For it is there (in the air) that you can hear My voice more clearly, away from the din and turmoil of earth's shouting.
Enter in to the fray only to snatch others from that fire, for you yourself are called to live ABOVE your circumstances, on a higher plane, and with greater peace and confidence than the world around you. I do this for a sign, as a witness to the world of My goodness and uniqueness in a world filled with trouble. If you do not soar, they will not see and look up. I have made you a sign and a witness to My goodness, and a testimony to their true calling and destiny. Rise up, loved one, and come away with Me!"
