Recently the Lord showed me that there are many people holding onto old seasons and not allowing the old doors to be fully closed. He revealed to me that many are meant to be transitioning into a new season, but the old open door is hindering and delaying the process.
VISION OF A DARK ROOM, A MAN, AND AN OPEN DOOR.
While the Lord was speaking to me about the invitation for the Earth to pause, I had a vision of a dark room and a person trying to force the door behind him to stay open. He didn’t want that door to fully close because he wouldn’t be able to see anything. Once he gave up the struggle and let go, the door closed and there was a time of waiting and PAUSING in the dark before the new door would be opened to him.
I believe the Lord was highlighting the importance of FULLY CLOSING THE DOOR to the old season, and FULLY LETTING GO of the old things, places, and circumstances, so there can be a pausing in His presence, and a waiting upon the Lord. This will make way for the preparation process, and the new strategy to land for the new scroll (the new season ahead)
The Lord has been revealing for many weeks that His people are in a time of “PAUSING” before the Lord. This pause is crucial in this hour to SEE what must be left behind, to enter into the new land he has been preparing for those who love Him.
I have being sensing strongly that the Lord is pulling His lovers into an even deeper place of intimacy with Him to lead them into a deeper place maturity. This maturity is KEY to entering into the new scroll for this new era.
The Lord is reminding His people to take heart, His perfect plan always leads you into the purpose for which you were created for. Trust the process, trust the delays, trust The Lord even when nothing makes sense right now. Continue to press into the realm of the spirit, and soon your eyes will be AWAKENED to what you must do next.
FOR YOU ARE HIS LOVER WHO HAS BEEN CALLED, GRAFTED IN, AND DISPLAYED TO FULFILL HIS DESIGN AND PURPOSE.
“So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.” Romans 8:28
Stay focused on the Lord and REST In Him, and know what He is requiring of you in this NEW SEASON, And what He is inviting you to let go of.
The Lord is calling His people to leave behind the luggage that came with the old season, because that will only cause distraction and hindrance in walking out the new scroll. The old door must be FULLY CLOSED, then a time of PAUSING before the Lord is NECESSARY, before the new door can be opened.
Trust in the Lord during this moment of pausing that may feel like a delay In the dark (a time of uncertainty and searching for answers) because you are about to enter into a whole new book (scroll) you have never seen or imagined before.
The Lord is preparing you to carry the new book you are about to walk into during this time of pausing. Do not try to skip this processes or even fear of missing out on anything. Trust the delays and trust the necessary process of letting go, so you can take up the new thing he is preparing you for.
KING DAVID WAS PREPARED IN DARKNESS
Just like a baby is created in the dark and birthed out of darkness, so was King David birthing his kingship during his time of hiddeness in dark caves. He could have thought of all the years he was missing out on being king and getting ahead, but the Lord was preparing Him to carry His position. David was prepared in the dark, but those years of waiting, hiding and crying out before the Lord was the very thing that got him ready for the next chapter in his life; the scroll that was written about him long ago.
A PSALM OF DAVID
“Then I said, “Behold, I come [to the throne]; In the SCROLL of the BOOK it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart.” Psalms 40:7-8
”Be still before the LORD; wait patiently for Him and entrust yourself to Him; Do not fret (whine, agonize) because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.” Psalms 37:7
A PRAYER FOR A READY HEART TO CARRY THE NEW HE HAS PREPARED FOR YOU
“God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting ways— the path that brings me back to you.” Psalms 139:23-24
