Many of you have been in a period of agony and despair because of what you thought was unanswered prayer. If that's you, the Lord gave me an encouraging word for you today.
I saw in a vision that the Lord was holding a sword. A person was standing before Him, and they were bound with ropes and cords. The cords were attached to the person's arms, legs, and torso at one end–and bound to other things at the other end.
The cords represented situations, emotional ties, and concerns that have held God's people back. They were not limited to emotional or spiritual bondage. They represented all manner of unresolved issues.
Then I saw the Lord begin to hack at the ropes and cords with His sword. He went at it vehemently, with passion, for the fullness of times had come. One by one, they fell off and the person was freed.
And I heard the Lord say: “The parting of the Red Sea is coming!”
You have prayed many prayers, but have yet to see many of the answers you looked for. However, as you have asked vehemently, the Lord is coming with His answers just as vehemently.
Hold everything loosely.
The Lord's answers may take a different form than you expect. Do not let yourself drift into fear; the Lord's answers are always a blessing. But, also don't limit the miracles you are able to receive by holding a limited picture in your mind of how He will answer.
I saw the Lord bringing radical changes into the lives of His people. They were changes that allowed the sweet rainstorm of His blessings to fall upon His people. When the Lord brings these changes, His people will dance with joy. They will be changes as dramatic in nature as the parting of the Red Sea, which He accomplished for His people Israel when He delivered them from Egypt.
Once your change has begun, it will happen more quickly than you expect.
Be prepared for the glorious, the unexpected, the swift, and the sudden. 🙂 Your prayers have been stored up in vials in Heaven, and the tipping point has come. It is now time and the Lord will act swiftly and in unexpected ways.
One last thing: You will know changes are coming before they come.
Many of you have been feeling like a radical change is coming. You are right. You would do well to heed the voice of the Holy Spirit, for He adores telling you what will happen before He moves. Pray into whatever inklings you may have–that His Kingdom would come and His will would be done on earth (and in your life) as it is in Heaven. Your prayers into the radical changes you sense will help you handle those changes with joy.
