A few weeks ago, as I was in prayer the Holy Spirit began to take me into a vision where I saw various coins being placed in a pocket that had holes in it. As the change was falling onto the ground I then began to look up and saw a flock of black birds that appeared to be crows or ravens. They were all searching for the place in which they were going to migrate and the Holy Spirit reminded me that these birds represented the familiar spirits that we have gotten so accustomed to which were literally coming and pecking at our goods. There are specific targeted places where these “distractions” will come to derail us from our God given assignments and responsibilities. They also represent those old people, places and things that have been sent to keep us in a place of bondage.
Haggai 1:5-7 (NKJV) states:
5 Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!
6 “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”
7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!
It is a time when it is easy to point the finger at all those things and situations that can alter our thinking and in turn affect our actions and keep us from making healthy choices. Those “birds” can come in the form of Insecurity, Doubt, Excessive Worrying, Wandering and Reasoning which can also lead to Fear and Depression among many other things which ultimately lead to spiritual death and at times even natural death. This is not a time to waver from our God given values that we can only receive by being rooted, grounded, and established in His love and in His word.
2 Corinthians 4:7 states that we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not in us. The good news is that this is not something that we have to strive to achieve but to really consciously choose to be a part of our daily life by our constant choice to surrender to His Lordship and to yoke ourselves to Jesus. We need to know that we serve a Savior who has already conquered all sickness, death, and the grave by His own ultimate sacrifice of His blood that was shed at Calvary. There is nothing we can ever do to change that as it was already established that very day. What we do have to option to do is to invite Him into all of the holes that have come from those imposters of the soul that have tried to rob, kill and to destroy our individual inheritance as a Son and as a Daughter of God.
There are many at this present moment who are contending for revival and God is preparing the Earth for the biggest outpouring of His love this world has ever seen but it must first begin with us individually. Revival first starts with our willingness for him to come into all of those areas of unbelief and to allow Him to bring to the surface those things that have kept Him from fully inhabiting His people with His Spirit. The truest form of Revival is when we can posture our heart in humility and know that we can do absolutely nothing without Him.
