I feel we are in a critical time in the spirit right now. It is a time of great opportunity and potential, but also a time of great challenge. It is a time when God is allowing His people to see the things that we have allowed to limit us in the past, as well as ways we have fallen short (perhaps even regularly or habitually).
If during this time we listen to the familiar voice of the flesh, this will be a season of rationalization and justification unto self-defense that keeps us stuck in the things that have held us back in the past. If we listen to the accusing voice of the enemy, this will be a difficult time of condemnation unto disqualification.
But if we are willing to listen to the revealing voice of Holy Spirit, this will be a glorious time of conviction unto new levels of consecration that launches us into greater manifestations of His promises.
This moment is rich with the potential of Joshua 3:5: Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things in your midst."
God is calling each of us up higher, not in our own strength and abilities but in His, to leave behind those things that have held us back in the past and step out into a powerful future, exploding with miraculous signs, wonders, and breakthroughs!
Do not fear or avoid the pressure you are feeling in the spirit right now. Turn to God with it. Allow it to press you into Him like never before. What He has for you in the midst of all you are sensing, feeling, and going through is "glorious transformation".
Like in Song of Songs 8:5, you are about to hear those around you declaring with wonder, "Who is this coming up out of the wilderness leaning on her beloved?"
I am not making light of the challenges of this season (I myself have been deeply convicted on several fronts recently); I am simply declaring that I believe with all my heart that we will see the goodness of God in the midst of all this. The enemy is not winning. God is simply answering our prayers in a wonderful albeit unexpected way.
Don’t miss the glorious opportunity of this challenging season. Invite Holy Spirit to go deeper than ever before, listen to His voice, do business with Him, and look forward to amazing transformation and empowerment as He brings you into greater manifestations of all you have been believing for!
