What does this mean prophetically to me and perhaps to you? At this point, I can’t allow anything to slow me down or to interrupt the pace at which I walk or move in Holy Spirit. I can’t allow anything to get me off of my pace or cause me to deviate from my rhythmic flow in grace.
I believe this is a ‘transition’ time for many of us. I know. That’s been said prophetically for a long time so I can grow weary of hearing it again. Yet, after years of wilderness wandering, God is speaking to me to trust, to watch, to believe, to hear, and to know. I hear the voice of God. As a Christian, you hear the voice of God.
My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me (John 10:27 Message)
For years I have been moving, even when it felt like I was standing still. Holy Spirit leads and guides. Sometimes the surroundings were dry. Other times there was a fog or a mist blocking my vision. Yet, I am moving through it all. Today I find myself in a place where Holy Spirit speaks and says, “Don’t break your stride!”
God sets up a rhythmic pace for me in Holy Spirit. Learning to be sensitive to His voice is key. Obeying His directives is also key to movement. We move in His grace, trusting Him with each step of our journey.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me––watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill–fitting on you (Matthew 11:28-29 Message)
Don’t break your stride!
My peripheral vision can pull me off focus. Looking at people, situations, or circumstances that are on the ‘edges’, off to the side trying to capture my attention, can be a major distraction. If I break stride due to weariness or even unbelief, I lose focus. I can also break stride because of a cynical attitude that says, “Has God indeed said?” I break stride by looking around and seeing others moving faster than I am so I hurriedly try to catch up to them.
I will stay in my ‘grace stride’ ordained for me by Holy Spirit. Through times of intimacy in prayer and worship, I hear His voice.
Breakthrough is taking us from glory to glory, from faith to faith. Each step Jesus Christ reveals Himself to me by Holy Spirit. My faith increases to believe in Christ alone and His way for me. It is a journey in Christ by Holy Spirit.
February is a turning month for me. It may be a turning month for you too. Let me show you how the Spirit so beautifully and clearly sets up His way in that word of turning. My eyes only have to be open to see and my ears sensitized to know.
When Holy Spirit moves us, we are moved suddenly or we can move through signposts in the road. February is a month of signposts to show me the way to turning out and moving out. February 1 brought me to a prophetic conference where I received a clear word of destiny. Shortly after that, I stumbled upon a book on Amazon. From the very beginning, it felt like the author was speaking to me. Then, one day on Facebook, an acquaintance I had not heard from in some time asked a simple question, “How are you?” After just a few minutes she invited me to Canada for a time of refreshing and renewal in her home. Step by step, this February is turning for me. This is my way, my path in which I am walking.
Holy Spirit is leading you in Christ’s way and directions for you. Be still and know. Be sensitive and listen.
