"Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." - Proverbs 4:5-7 KJV
When God began to answer my prayers for wisdom and understanding of what was going on in my life, the first thing He told me was that I need to understand the bigger picture to understand my part in it.
It doesn't take much to realize that the signs of the end times are increasing in the earth today. Also, the Church is becoming aware that we are much closer to the return of the Lord than we thought we would be at this time. But there is something else going on that much of the Church doesn't quite understand unless God has revealed it.
Have you carried personal promises of God with you for a long time? Are you in a place of delay or contradiction to what the Lord has spoken to you?
If so, then let me ask you this. Have you been doing spiritual warfare against the enemy for breakthroughs in these things and not seen results?
If you have, and things haven't changed, then have you considered that it might be God allowing these things? Is it possible that you are fighting against God unknowingly and perhaps that is why you are not receiving breakthrough?
Maybe the things you are experiencing are being allowed by God. They could be permitted by Him to get you to turn to Him as your only source to show you things that need to change, to prepare you for your destiny, or to strengthen your faith.
Perhaps prayer for wisdom and understanding of what He is doing in your life is in order.
We give the enemy too much credit. He can't do anything unless God allows it, and his only real attack is to our minds. He wants us to change our minds and turn away from God. If we have the mind of Christ, we can fight the enemy, just as Christ did in His own wilderness experience. If our mind is renewed, we realize that the trials we face are opportunities for us to become over-comers.
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." - Romans 12:1-2 KJV
It seems that everyone I talk with lately is experiencing great trials in one or more areas of their life. But be encouraged. There is a reason for all that is happening, and it is preparation.
We are in a new season with the Lord, and He is preparing us for His plan for this season.
Today's prophets have been prophesying of a significant transition for several years now. There have been many prophecies about this transition. Not many about what we are transitioning to; what God requires of us during the transition; or how to transition safely. I don't have all the answers, but I believe God has given me some insight, and I am seeing that others are now releasing what the Lord has shown them concerning this.
Over the years, I have had several dreams and visions of rivers of fire, and I will share a couple of relevant visions in later posts.
There were common threads in all the visions. These rivers of fire were referred to as the Fire of God's Love that removes all that separates us from Him. It is a fire that consumes but does not harm or destroy, and it is a fire that grows and draws others in.
There are many facets to God's Love, and the fire of His Love is one of them.
