FREELY GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT
It is of uptmost importance to keep our hearts free, guarding it with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.(Prov.4:23).
I heard the word, “Pile-ups” in the spirit and knew that the Lord was giving me a warning not to allow issues and difficulties to “pile up” in my consciousness and sub-consciousness, becoming burdens, stresses and pre-occupations.
As I was fellowshiping with a close friend, we realized again how subtle the enemy is, creeping in with all kinds of things that cause stress, stealing your joy. If we do not deal with these things by bringing it before the Lord, it will pile up and before you know it, you will be stressed and oppressed, bearing “burdens” which are not from the Lord. In the process you get distracted and side-tracked from doing what God has called you to do and you lose momentum.
Therefore I want to encourage you to take some special time out with the Lord, waiting on Him and rising up to get heavenly perspective. (Is.40:29-31)
Ask the Holy Spirit to put His spotlight on the things that you subconsciously stress about in the deepest layers of your heart, allowing pile-ups which will deplete you of energy and focus. Now bring it into the light and intentionally deal with it!
RELEASE AND BREATHE!
Release these issues one by one to the Lord (MATT.11:28-30/PHIL.4:6) breathing deep into the Spirit – into the provision of His grace, His wisdom, His provision, His blessing and whatever else you need, which are all supplied in Christ Jesus.
You will be replenished, receiving His perfect peace in the midst of any storm and your joy will be full in Him.
Remember, where the eye goes, the mind follows. Take every thought captive in obedience to the Lord and turn your eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb.12:1-3), taking every thought captive in obedience to the Lord. Thank Him for working out all the details of your life and choose to rejoice in His goodness and grace.
RENEW YOUR VISION & PURPOSE
Simply get your vision before your eyes again and keep viewing your life form above, from His viewpoint and counsel, deliberately speaking His Word into your situations with prophetic declarations, knowing that your mouth determines the outcome! (Prov.18:21)
ENJOYING THE FREE GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT
Now you will be on a free glide on the wind streams of the Spirit (not flapping your wings in anxiousness), but living from above the static, releasing God’s will and His Word into the earth for His glory! Enjoy the glide in His Presence!
