Vision during early morning prayer meeting in the city Atlanta, GA
Against a clear blue sky, a great eagle began to soar, circling higher and higher, gliding effortlessly, seemingly at rest, but yet climbing to greater heights. The eagle was not flying by the power of its wings, but using the unseen wind currents. I did not see the eagle flap its wings during the entire flight.
Wind currents and shifts in the atmosphere are created by the Holy Spirit unseen by available to those who are leg by the Spirit. As the eagle, they will rise to new levels of intimacy, as they trust the wind of the Spirit. In this season, it will not be by power nor by might but by the Spirit of the Lord.
Later in the same meeting, another person saw a lone blue bird singing followed by a group of sparrows flapping their wings, almost in a panic.
After leaving the meeting, while still in heavy (Atlanta) city traffic there was a wild turkey by the side of the road. The turkey appeared disoriented, not knowing which way to go, just walking in a circle on the grassy area by the side of a very busy street, in a semi-commercial area. A wooded area was nearby, but the bird seem too dazed and confused to head in that direction.
New beginnings will not come by works, but by the resting on the new wind of the Spirit, allowing it carrying us into a higher place with the Lord Himself. From the place of rest in intimate relationship with Him renewing comes. We are to be renewed, see with greater clarity and revelation receiving “new strength” to do the greater works we long to see.
It is a time of one-on-one intimate relationship with the Lord Himself that brings us to the place of contentment in Him that will bring forth a new song birthed from love and worship from the inner most being.
The caution during this season is to remain in the place of rest with the Spirit and not shift over into doing the “works”, as it feels we should be doing something. No matter how vigorous we flap our wings, so to speak, we will not add or build one lasting thing. The Lord is calling us to rest in Him, cease from our labors and rest in His promises. Trusting God, we stand at a crossroad as does our city and nation. Our positioning in the Lord’s presence during this season will determine if we cross over in His rest or if we labor in vain.
He gives us the choice to flow with Him in His purposes, building and establishing His Kingdom, His house or to stand along the sidelines watching things pass us by, not understanding how we came to be in that place, and seemingly going in circles, instead of soaring on the wind of His Spirit. His place and position of destiny is calling us to bring change, to change and to be change in our individual our individual relationships, but also our churches, city and nation.
The winds of change are in the air and we have a choice in how we respond. Will you be as the eagle or the turkey?
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. Isa 40:28-31
Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. Ps 127:1-2
