As a teenager living in a rural area, we had no local swimming pool. So everyone went to a particular bend in the river to swim. Travel down a gravel road winding through a field would bring you to a lovely spot where you had a great beach and a good deep hole to dive into. That place is now blocked. A gate lies across the old road and I guess nobody swims there anymore. Fun times were had by many a family back in the day.
God speaks to my heart: Back in the day is full of good memories. But you can’t go back and relive the old ways. Quit standing at the blockades of the past and wishing you could return. Instead look forward to the things I AM about to do. My Name is I AM and I will show you a future full of my spirit and love if you will dare to move on with Me.
Oh beloved, aren’t we blessed? We have spiritual memories that are good and heart warming. But we are alive in the here and now! Not only that, we have great blessings ahead! Times may look rough, you may not think you can make it, but God is with you! People are wondering how they will navigate this new world that seems so hostile towards God and His people. God doesn’t want to bar the way for you, He simply wants to take you to new and greener pastures, to deeper waters of faith. His Presence is your divine right as a child of God. His Word is modern and up to date and useful in this generation. You don’t have to look to the past for your sustenance. Just as the manna of the Israelites couldn’t be harvested for later – God’s plans for you are for today. You can’t hoard yesterday’s blessings, victories or miracles. Today is your day and God’s day to show you His wisdom, power and love. He wants to revive your heart, fill you with His Spirit in a fresh and flowing way, give you a new heart and a renewed mind! Times may look bad but we are in the greatest times of history for God is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh. Sons and daughters are prophesying and old people are getting fresh vision about God’s Kingdom!
God loves you and He’s for you! Although the past is gone, there are no blockades in the Spirit for you this day! Rejoice that you can leap over walls, sing without shame, share the Gospel everywhere and live in the Light of His Wonderful Love!
