My heart cannot help but leap with anticipatory joy at the promises that are being breathed over this season. If you are a follower of prophetic words, you will agree with me that there is so much promise breathed over this season! While we did see God come through in several ways, the past season had carried a note of foreboding doom and gloom: several prayers went unanswered in the way we were hoping it would be; fear ran rampant trampling saints into defeat and dejection. I for one kept reading the Old Testament accounts where God showed up in wonders and miracles and made nations quake and tremble and asked Him to be exalted again in the world.
If you are echoing these thoughts in your mind, I want to be the voice of encouragement in your lives: God is doing something new this season! The past season served to anchor our faith in God, recognize and repent of our devious behavior patterns, sins and draw us closer to Him. Thankfully we are now on the verge of a new season, purer, closer and more conscious of the fact that we are loved by an almighty God. Draw closer to His heart - this season is all about being hidden in His love for us and He will draw us closer to Him. Be encouraged!
Read slowly the invitation from our Bridegroom in Song of songs and get ready, for the best is yet to come!
Song of songs 2: 10-13 (TPT - Emphasis mine)
Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me!
I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out.
For now is the time, my beautiful one.
The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone.
The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you?
The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth.
The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere.
The fragrance of their flowers whispers,“There is change in the air.”
Arise, my love, my beautiful companion,and run with me to the higher place.
For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
