Recently the Lord has been waking me up with sounds. I wrote a blog about one and now I feel led to write about another.
The second sound the Lord woke me with was the sound of a person on a high dive hitting the water. It was a very loud sound.
This is what the Lord said about this sound and the significance of it: “It is time to go deeper with Me. I am asking you to dive deeper with Me. It is time that you and I make a BIG splash together. I am taking you into deeper waters, a deeper realm with Me. I want you to go 'way beyond you’. There are greater things for you below the surface, greater treasures are in the deep. Trust Me and dive into the deep with ME.”
Oh, the sound of the impact I heard when the person hit the water. It was such an impact and it made such an impact on me just hearing the sound. As we go deeper with God, we will make a greater impact to those around us and even in this nation. There are great treasures in the deep. We have to leave the surface in order to go deep. We have to jump into the deep.
Psalms 42:7 (NKJV) “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.”
I want to share a personal story here. Several years ago my husband Jay and I were invited by a minister friend of ours to go to Cuba on a ministry trip. We agreed to go and on this trip. The Pastor and some others from the church wanted us to all go to the
beach. Well, just for the record, Jay and I are more mountain people. Well, we did go. And at the beach everyone was going pretty far out in the water. I really wasn't comfortable going out into the deep. But I decided to go anyway. I had so much fun out in the deep. Had I given into the fear of going out into the deep, where I couldn't feel the bottom at all, I didn't even know how far down the bottom was, LOL. I truly went out way beyond my comfort zone. Oh, but I had so much fun out in the deep. My point in sharing this story is, I would have missed out on so much had I not gone out into the deep. But, because I was willing to go out into the deep, in spite of being uncomfortable and a little afraid of the deep, I had an incredible time and experienced something new. I would have missed out on so much fun and an incredible experience of being in the water in Cuba.
I had to go out into the deep in spite of my feelings. God is wanting us to dive deep with Him. He wants us to JUMP into the deep. Not just step, but JUMP into the deep. Stepping doesn't make as big of an impact as it does when we jump. It is easier to step than it is to jump. Jumping requires more faith and trust in Him. When we jump from the high dive we will be entering the deep with God and a new adventure will begin. We won't be entering the normal we are used to because God is up to something NEW and wants to take us beyond us.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV) “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth: shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Old ways are over. They will not be productive anymore. Church, God is calling us to lay down and walk away from the old and dive deep into the new with Him.
Mark 2:22 (NKJV) “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins. The wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.”
God is pouring out new wine. He is asking you and I to get rid of the old wineskins and get ready for the new wine. Dive into the new. Leave the old behind, climb to higher levels and JUMP into the deep with God.
I heard the Lord say, “I have saved the best for last”. We are entering into a NEW season of NEW. We can choose to dive deep with God or stay in the shallow and miss out on the greatest move of God in history. I only speak for myself, but I am diving deep with God. We are on the verge of something absolutely incredible with God and I do not and will not miss out on one second of it. God is extending His hand to you and me to dive DEEP with Him. I am accepting. Will you?
I wish I could totally convey to you in words what I am seeing, hearing and sensing from the Spirit of God. It is absolutely incredible. Church, we are just at the tip of it and God is saying, “Come on let's go deeper, let's go further in, let's go to the depths.”
This is not small, this is huge. This will take absolute trust and faith in Daddy God. I am not saying this to scare you off. I am
saying this to spur you on for MORE. Don't settle for the lower water levels, dive deep. There is so much more. I am about to explode with excitement as I write this. I can hardly contain my excitement. People of God, it is starting. The high dive is waiting for you. God is waiting for you to jump with Him. It is time to tear the old wineskins, get out of the old and dive. Drink of the new wine God is pouring out. Walk out of the old, embrace the new, go deep with Him, and drink the new wine!!!
