As I was out walking this morning I heard the wind in the trees and the phrase – the horses are running – can you hear them?
David had already defeated the Philistines and named the place of his breakthrough.
Then David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Wilt Thou give them into my hand?” And the LORD said to David, “Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand.” So David came to Baal-perazim, and defeated them there; and he said, “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim. 2 Samuel 5: 18-20
Yet once again he face the same enemy, the giants he had previously defeated were before him, on his horizon. He enquired of the Lord and was to wait until he hear the sound in the tops of the trees then he was to go at the Lord’s command. He was not to go against the enemy the same way he had previously defeated him, as he was to do something new. We are facing many of the enemies we have previously defeated, but the Lord desires to bring a final victory that we might have peace in the place of His calling. Sometimes have to face the same enemy, but in a new way and the timing of the final defeat is the key to moving into a place of lasting peace. We are to move forward only at the Lord’s command. If we move to soon things will not have been prepared and if we wait too long the moment of victory may have passed.
Now the Philistines came up once again and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. And when David inquired of the LORD, He said, “You shall not go directly up; circle around behind them and come at them in front of the balsam trees.” 2 Samuel 5: 22-24
In October, I saw the following: There were armies of horsemen lined up; coming into order beginning to face the same, direction and many being reposition to be aligned with those on either side for effectiveness. In times past, He has passed before the troops inspecting and bringing order. The troops are trained; readied for a pass and review. They will pass before the Lord and all eyes will be on Him. He is now releasing and sending forth. In His positioning, many are released into that He has prepared, trained and equipped to do; building and establishing His Kingdom as we co-labor with Him.
He’s releasing His Spirit of Might. It’s not by power and not by might, but by His Spirit, as it is the power of His might emerging. The closer we draw to Him the more understanding we will have of His Spirit of Might. Suddenly God will establish His promises as He is restoring lost dreams, visions and promises; dreams are being brought to remembrance, times of renewed vision. We’ve been waiting for a sound, the sound of Him moving in the earth.
Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; surely it is near, Joel 2:1
Do you sense the swirling or a stirring in the heavens? While it is yet dark, you know, you sense and you feel the effects, but since the sun has not risen you don’t have the ability to see. You are to keep pressing upward towards Me, as I am arising in your midst. When I arise, there will be light to see that which has been stirring; soon you will have tangible evidence of what you’ve been hearing and sensing. You are to stand in faith believing for those promises. You are to stand in what appears to be the dark places waiting for My light to make entrance, to unfold and as it does your anticipation will give way to action, but it will be at My direction and timing. You are to wait in faith looking forward and keeping watch to see what I would say. It may appear nothing is happening but I am arranging and preparing behind the scenes. I am speaking in a still small voice, but I am also speaking in all things that surround you. Your cry is – open my eyes Lord that I might see what you’re saying – open my ears that I might hear your word and the sound of your preparation. This is a season to have your spiritual senses expanded. You are not only to have eyes to see and ears to hear, but you are to have understanding. I am not only giving you understanding during this season, but I am working to give you wisdom. The sons of Issachar not only knew the times and seasons of their God, but they knew what was to be done. You have the ability to see and hear, but are transitioning into a season where you will know the timing of what you should do. You are not to run ahead of Me, but to wait on My timing, wait on my sound so that you can move when I move, rest when I say to rest and wait when I say wait. You are in the transition place of ceasing from your labors and entering into My rest, which is co-laboring with Me, as I build My house, My tabernacle, My dwelling within you to bring forth My purposes in your lives and in the earth.
