Wake: The track left by a vessel in the water.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a small pond, a lake, a flowing river or even the ocean. You are not to be determined or identified by where you are or what you are moving in. It doesn’t matter if you’re a slow moving fishing boat or a giant barge pushing large containers of oil or a luxurious cruise ship carrying many passengers or a fast moving speedboat. It doesn’t matter if you have a glossy sleek new finish or you’re a pitted, rust stained, chipped painted vessel.
What matters in the Kingdom – what is in your wake? What is behind you in the taste and hearts of those you have walked with in former places and past seasons? Wherever you are and whatever the condition you are in, the destination is the same. We are all on a journey into the Kingdom, into His presence – transformed into His image. It matters not who is with you, because He is always with you
What matters – what’s in your wake? How did you leave those past seasons? Is there debris in the wake of past relationships, places and methods? Are things hidden under the surface, those hidden things are what ensnares us and prevents us from the fullness of our destination, Kingdom living.
Those things in our wake may only appear to be behind us, but they are part of who we are, connected to us by invisible cords and bonds. They may not seem to be relevant to our destination. We may be revving our engines; water may be moving past us giving the illusion of forward momentum, but are those things in our wake holding us in place with patterns of the past?
The purity of our wake is the determining factor of our forward progress. If the propeller of a boat fouls with invisible cords, we can hear the sound of the engine and see the movement of the water – but we are not moving.
The Lord is saying – It’s time for us to be known by the fruits of the Spirit, our love for one another not for our gifts, insight or the critical/negative words towards others, most especially to those we consider we have moved on from or are no longer connected with.
