Step Into a New Place!
October 7, 2019
It's time to draw a line in the sand, step over it and not look back. It's a time to fully step into the new things that God is orchestrating for your life. It's time to fully step into obedience. Do the little things He is telling you to do. Do the BIG things He is telling you to do. Trust His leadership and timing in your life.
He is preparing you to be the size and shape to house the vision. Then, you will run freely with a strength that has been built through the Holy Spirit's "resistance training". Resistance training increases the strength of your muscles as they contract against an external force. The forces that have come against you have only served to increase your strength. You will find that you are stronger than before as God has used what the enemy meant for evil to now propel you forward.
It's a time to step in to all that God has prepared for you. The Lord promised Joshua in Joshua 1:3 , that He would give him every place where he set his foot. Joshua's steps were important and your steps are important too. You are taking NEW TERRITORY and He will direct where your feet are to go.
Your step is your act of faith. Your step is your physical act of obedience and it will bring breakthrough. Do not despise the small steps. Make the step of obedience that is before you no matter how small. Your one step may be the tipping point that initiates a massive breakthrough.
As Joshua told the children of Israel to "get their supplies ready" in Joshua 1:11, God's quickening Spirit is moving in the hearts of His Church saying, "Get ready, You are stepping in! Tie up the loose ends for you are entering into the NEW! For I have a new realm of the Spirit awaiting you. I am a calling you to come up higher, to go down deeper, to lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. Enlarge the place of your tent for I am coming to bring GREAT EXPANSION to the way you have seen and understood My Kingdom. Build up the highway and remove the stones. Prepare the way of My coming."
The Lord is looking for a people who will set their hearts on pilgrimage with Him. He is not sending you on this journey alone. No, He will be with you every step of the way, guiding, directing, protecting and communing all along the way.
"How enriched are they who find their strength in the Lord; within their hearts are the highways of holiness! Even when their paths wind through the dark valley of tears, they dig deep to find a pleasant pool where others find only pain. He gives to them a brook of blessing filled from the rain of an outpouring. They grow stronger and stronger with every step forward, and the God of all gods will appear before them in Zion." Psalm 84:5-7 TPT
There are those who have been deeply hurt and wounded on their journey, and who weren't able to access the "pleasant pools" for various reasons. You may feel now as if you are paralyzed with unreasonable fear and are experiencing an inability to move forward. I see God moving in as the Healer and Deliverer to loose your feet from where they have been stuck. He is going to immerse you in the refreshing and cleansing pools of His love. He is breaking off mental torment, dread, regret, and shame. He is giving you a brand new start!
As you make the steps of faith to move forward in obedience you will find that you have stepped into a NEW DIMENSION of God's grace, power, and anointing. There will be a noticeable strengthening in the stepping. Jesus is going before you as the BREAKER, breaking open the way before you.
"The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before the, the LORD at their head." Micah 2:13
It's a time to be intentional about our steps. Step forward, step up, step out, step in!
