By Mark Wyatt
Many prophetic voices have been prophesying for a long time that God is doing something completely new. The truth of Isaiah 43:19 has been booming loudly in the spirit:
"Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert."
The Alarm is Sounding, He is Coming
I have been feeling a significant urgency in the spirit recently, I can hear an alarm sounding in the spirit but it's not an alarm that sounds emergency and is negative. This alarm is sounding urgency, expectancy and a call to position.
It is resounding like the cry of John the Baptist and Psalm 24:9 both echoing. He is coming! The King is coming! Make way! Make Room! Prepare ye the Way! The King of Glory is coming In!
The invitation I am feeling in the spirit has been so intense, I have been feeling the Holy Spirit saying, "This requires a response from My people, this requires a response."
When I asked the Lord what response He required, the Lord said to me Deuteronomy 30:19: "Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessing and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness to the choice that you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants may live."
Instantly the Lord reminded me of a dream that I had where He made it very clear that He was inviting His people into a whole new level of surrender, and it was a whole new level of surrender to trust in His way!
The positioning into the new is to give God the freedom to be God in our lives. To not try and squeeze Him into a box, into how we think He should move, when He should move, where He should move, but a deep, deep yieldedness to Him that says, "I trust completely in Your way!"
We are transitioning into a completely NEW season; we have not been this way before, and in this transition, God is requiring a deeper level of surrender from His people to trust completely in His way. The way He chooses to move you, the way He chooses to shift things, bring breakthrough, increase, promotion, however He chooses to move, that we as God's people would be so deeply rooted in Him and surrender that we trust completely in the way He is leading us, knowing that He is working for our good. Whatever He chooses, we receive it because we know that He is good and leading us into things bigger and better and more amazing than we could imagine.
Deep, Deep, Deep in the Secret Place
But there is a very heavy emphasis of the Lord right now that we must be ready. We must be pressing into Him, our lamps full of oil and wicks trimmed, ready for His coming because He's about to show up and show out and He's stretching His people in order to receive what He is releasing, but we must respond in surrender, humility, and yieldedness.
He is going to show His people His goodness and how creative, wise, far above and faithful His ways are. His ways will not lead you to a place of harm (Jeremiah 29:11) but the pathway to increase. He needs to stretch you for where you need to go.
Overnight Positioning of the Humble
Sudden promotions, sudden accelerations, sudden increase, sudden position, sudden momentum is falling upon the lowly and humble places. Those who are bowing low in humility, the Lord is going to exalt in significant ways for the extension in His Kingdom in this season and it is going to be literally overnight.
A Key is to Pray in the Spirit On All Occasions
The Lord showed me many who are fearing the change, fearing the WAY of the Lord in this season, PRAY in the Spirit continually (Ephesians 6:18) and you will be built by the Spirit of God in greater strength, peace, joy and chains of fear will break and JOY will flood in.
Out of the Pit and Into the Palace But Your Alignment is Key
This is the season where God is leading His people out of the pit and into the palace.
In this transition, we must stay aligned with the truth of the Word of God and what He is saying. There is an intense battle in the spirit right now where the enemy is attempting to get God's people to align with old mindsets, old pathways, lies, unbelief, fears, and anxieties because he wants to keep you caged. The enemy wants to keep you in the prison to stop you from your new position in the palace.
Did God Really Say?
The enemy is whispering "Did God really say?" The enemy is whispering "Don't trust God, His way will hurt you" amongst many other lies. Warriors of God, cast down these lies, cast down the vain imaginations that raise themselves up against the knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:5). Demolish the arguments, feast, feast, feast, and don't stop feasting upon truth. The Lord is setting a table before you in the presence of your enemies.
Choosing to align with fear, death, lies, putting trust in those things, trusting in the "Pharoah" or the "ways of Egypt" will lead to slavery again. God is wanting to lead us out into victory and the new thing He is doing is requiring that decision from us as God's people to continue to choose life through their surrender, trust, decree, yieldedness and humility. Don't trust in what you have always known in the "slave mentalities". Invite Him in through your intimacy with Him, your total surrender, praying in the Spirit, and renewing your mind with the Word to prepare you for the new that is upon you!
The cry of "however, whatever, whenever you want to show up, it has to be Your way Lord!!!!" is going to positioning you in new places that you have never imagined.
God's decree is "Trust Me, hold onto Me, let me be God and I am leading you to a new level of breakthrough, freedom, positioning and abundant life."
"This is why the fulfillment of God's promise depends entirely on trusting God and HIS WAY, and then simply embracing Him and what He does. God's promise arrives as a pure gift." Romans 4:16 (MSG Translation)
You Will not Be Disappointed
You will not be disappointed by the new thing God is doing. He is leading you out with joy and peace (Isaiah 55) into a new level of maturity, strength, and joy.
Now is the time to prepare! Do not fall asleep! The awakening of the new day is upon us, and as God's people He is calling us to be ready, prepared, our lamps full of oil and found ready.
"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8)
Your destiny and moving into your double portion place of positioning in the new is upon you! The King of Glory is coming, but we must make room for Him. No agenda, no box He has to fit into, no agenda, whatever WAY He chooses to come and move we cry out "Come Lord Jesus!!!" and we live as the mature saints that know that this call to deeper yieldedness and surrender is setting us up to see His goodness and Glory demonstrated in ways we have never imagined.
Angels of Increase
I saw in the surrender, in the yielding, in the bowing low, angels of increase appeared all along the Lord's pathway for individuals and the move of His Spirit upon the earth. Increase will abound all around, but there must be an alignment of the heart in the right posture for this increase.
He Won't Be Bound
He won't be bound by man's plans and His amazing Glory, power and kindness in going to be demonstrated in this new season is profound ways restoring the awe back to the Church.
"I don't think the way you think. The way you work isn't the way I work. For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don't go back until they've watered the earth, doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, so will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They'll do the work I sent them to do, they'll complete the assignment I gave them." (Isaiah 55:8-11)
"Embrace My way, it's leading you into a glorious new, joy filled day!"
