There comes a time where a person must throw himself at the mercy of the Lord in order to hear what He really is saying. There are times when it seems as if you have dried up the well all by yourself, and what’s left is the mud at the bottom of the well. Are you trying to draw water from a cistern that once had such an abundance of water as a resource that you weren’t paying attention when it was running low?
Remember the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis where He had the Word of Knowledge from interpreting a dream about the seven years of famine that was coming? What did he do? He commanded that wheat be stored up for the next seven years for the seven years of famine that was coming. In other words, he prepared the nation of Egypt for its utmost survival, as well as for his brothers and his father’s house . He had no idea that he was about to save, through his actions, his own family as well.
It should be pretty obvious that God’s ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so much higher are His ways than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. But we are not always aware of the obvious. When we think we have it all together, He can allow a few things until we become aware of how short we really are of His excellence. But we are made in the image of His dear Son and He will not allow you to go through more than you can endure without providing the way of escape. .
You are being emptied by His ways because His ways are higher. You are being transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you will have the mind of Christ; because His thoughts are higher and purer. You are being given the vision which He wants you to write because it is meant for such a time as this. You are being prepared through trials that you had no knowledge of beforehand so that you will have to trust the Author and Finisher of your faith. For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross despising the shame of it, and has sat down at the right hand of the Father, having triumphed over it, as well as triumphing over death. Now endure the writing of the vision, for you will triumph as well.
With ever increasing joy you are about to enter a time where water is being restored to your wellspring of life. When you thought you had used up all that you have, He is saying: “I have a new thing for you.” The wells of salvation are being made known to you so that you will know what is really true, and the truth about the wellspring of life will set you free. It will pour into your spirit as the anointed river of life, and will flow through your life as the anointed overflow of the Lord’s Presence. Therefore with joy shall you draw water from the wells of salvation. When the Lord gives you the vision, He will provide what the vision needs.
Your walk with Me is about to change. There are legions of angels doing battle in the heavenlies, knocking down and disrupting the strongholds of your enemies Where you had been weak in your attempts to resist temptation, the Lord has sent forth His Word into your weakness to restore your strength. This is the anointed river of life that is restoring unto you the years that the swarming locusts have eaten.
This is the river of life that is speaking to you, it is the Voice of the Lord that is calling out to you. “I have been calling you by your own name and you are mine. I have not forgotten you, nor have I ever left you. But turn around and run to Me says the Lord, for I am your fortress, I am your deliverer. For he who runs to Me will find Me, for the door will never be shut unto you. For the Name of the Lord is a strong tower, and the righteous run unto Me and find safety”; says the Lord.
“Now write the vision, and make it plain on tablets so that he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2: 2.
