The time is right before us that the spiritual bondage of Satan is going to be shaken! There is a movement coming that is going to roll like thunder, twist like tornadoes and blow like the wind due to the movement of God. During this time of God’s movement there will be a large resistance from the darkness of the world but Jesus says,” Have faith as a mustard seed in trusting God and the waves will not overtake your ship.”
Everyday we encounter barometric changes within our spiritual being that can affect our state of mind unless we are anchored to the cross of Jesus Christ. Without knowing how to trust God when changes come our way we often allow Satan to spiritually enter our minds because we simply don’t understand what is taking place. This often causes us to feel as if we are losing control due to looking for answers in the physical instead of recognizing what is taking place in the spiritual. At this stage of change and lack of understanding it can be a good thing because then we are learning how to deepen our faith in simply trusting God by letting go of whatever is holding us back to be shaped in the hands of our Creator.
Why is it that we have fear when storms or change are in the horizon? Is it because we are not prepared or is it simply because we are not anchored in Christ? To be anchored we must embed ourselves in the Word of God for our roots to be entrenched in the depths of our foundation and locked to the Rock of Jesus Christ. As changes occur in the atmosphere they also occur in our spirits between one another until we learn how to love each other for who God has set us out to be.
Storms can occur in our spirits when we allow something to brew over time due to our lack of communication in love or when we allow another spirit of darkness to fight with the light of Jesus Christ. Often spiritual storms can be avoided if we would just learn to be humble and receptive to hear God’s Word. The longer we contain the spirit within us without learning how to let it flow in the love of God this causes the pressure to build until the point of release. The object is learning how to release in the love of God without allowing the pressure of our emotions to misguide our actions as Moses did when he struck the rock.
As one cloud unites with another cloud without knowing how to release the rain a storm can build to a point that can be as destructive as a hurricane. This same principle takes place in our spirits when we unite with others due to the momentum that is gained when the spirits join together as clouds just before a rain. When united in Christ we stand in love but if we allow our emotions and fears to mislead our actions then we get tossed around in the winds of the world. Can you see the relation to the tears that we hold back from our internal pains or from the tears that come when the Truth is being held back in the Word of God? Or, can you see the Power in the spirit of God that is gained when we learn how to unite in the love of God with respect for each part of the body in obedience to God’s Word?
There is unity, harmony, strength and security in the spirit of God when we learn to join together in the unconditional love of our Father in Heaven. For as long as we allow our spirits to question everything that is taking place without trusting the Lord daily for our direction then the atmosphere in which we live in will feel pressured and uncertain. Holding back the spirit within us can be dangerous until we learn how to let it go and turn it over to our Father in Heaven above. Not only is it dangerous when we hold back our trust in God but it also restricts us from moving forward to where the Lord wants to take us in the inner peace of His Kingdom.
The Word of God tells us not to suppress the spirit of the Lord and for us to develop our senses through the Word of God. It is important to recognize the differences between the love of God that falls like a gentle mist and the storms that build due to our lack of understanding how to release in His love. There is alot that can be learned in the wisdom of nature and the atmospheric pressures of this world when we open our eyes and ears to hear the Spirit of the Lord. God still speaks today in ways that we often miss because we simply don’t know how to listen…I can hear that thunder in a distance, can you? There is a train coming and we can feel it in the trembling of our bones as it is coming around the bend…Amen
