We are created to operate with our natural senses and our spiritual senses – to see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. As a visual learner, I pick up on things quickly if it is shown to me visually, as opposed to being spoken to me. Pictures, visions, or images given to me by God open up revelation that allows me to see in the Spirit that which may not be visible in the natural. God gifts me this way to discern what is going on in the Spirit in order to pray, give a word of wisdom or knowledge or just to know, to be aware.
I am learning that the increase of this supernatural anointing flows through grace and humility. In other words, God looks for those with whom He can share His heart. The purity of a heart, filled with love for Christ and people, clears the eyes and opens the ears to clearly see and hear and then, perhaps, to speak. To see through a lens of pride, arrogance, or judgment only serves to weaken this gift of life. Then what use is it to any of us?
What about hearing a supernatural sound? This is a new path for me, one that opens up year by year. For instance, I remember the first time I traveled through Finland in 2002; I heard the sound of rushing water. I had no idea at the time how to interpret this supernatural occurrence let alone what to do with what I was hearing.
What I heard, and heard quite often, was a prophetic sound of release that God desired for this nation. Soon the sound of the water accompanied a vision from Holy Spirit. I saw rushing water, flowing down from the north of Finland to the south. I would encourage you NOT to do what I did in my earlier years.
Instead of rushing along with some premature interpretation, sensing you may know what the sound and the vision may convey – wait and be still, knowing that He is God. He will reveal, in His time, what He so freely shows His children. God gifts His children with an ease of grace because He desires to enhance our Christian walk with His life and His light. Christianity is founded in a supernatural movement as we live, move and have our being in Him.
The sound, the vision – as I waited on God to speak concerning the meaning of it all, He did.
As water rushes down from the north to the south, flowing in power and strength, so is the heart of God for the nation of Finland. That He may flow from the high places to the low places, bringing with it, healing, deliverance and freedom from years of captivity that has been imposed upon this land. Establishing courage within a people who are indeed long-suffering, God sees them and knows them to be a people who will stand when others fade away from the pressures of life. This water, continually released from the throne of God, will flow, increasing in intensity in God’s timing and in His way. One need only watch to see the flow of the water indicated the faithfulness and love for this nation.
He is a good Father, teaching us as we go along, walking in sync with Him. Developing our spiritual senses is necessary in a world filled with chaos. Our eyes are flooded with visual media and our ears are accosted with noise on a daily basis. Desire now to see how heaven is moving in the earth today. Long to hear what God is saying. It is your inheritance in Christ.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.
