Lay Low and You Will Be Released to GO

On Sunday at church during worship I had such an amazing and powerful vision. I was on my knees with my face on the ground and my hands in the air – I was surrounded by darkness but above me were great clouds of glory. They were all different colours but what stood out to me the most was a royal purple and a deep gold. As I looked on at myself from afar I could see the glory clouds above me and massive wings rising up from behind the glory clouds. The wings were over me and the wings were covering me as I looked on over myself – surrendered, emptied and laid low. As I was praying about this vision this morning I was taken back to looking at that place of me surrendered on my knees, the glory clouds above and the massive wings hovering over me. As I looked the vision expanded out further and I saw the darkness that I was in reaching to the four corners of the earth. But on the four corners of each of the earth were the four winds of the Spirit and the winds were about to move mightily and powerfully. Then I heard this word from God:

“I am coming in power! I am coming like I promised! I am doing what I said I would do. I will come in power and engulf, equip, fill and empower you to do my will, to be my messenger, to take my words to the ends of the earth. I will do it, because I have said it. Continue to empty yourself – so that I can continue to pour myself into you – to fill you with my Spirit and empower you to do my will – daily, hourly, moment by moment, surrender and empty yourself and ask for my fresh infilling.

I will come in power! I will come in glory! I will engulf you with my purifying glory fire! My Spirit is in you and my Spirit rests upon you, now I will continue to increase myself as you continue to decrease yourself.

I will continue to increase Myself as you continue to decrease yourself

I can only use those who are emptied of themselves. What I have ahead is so great and glorious that I can only entrust my power and partnership to empty vessels, to weak worshippers, to surrendered souls. Get on your knees and lift up your hands to me – just like the vision you saw in worship – that was my throne room! That was my glory cloud and the mighty magnificent wings of my Spirit! It was not an angel, but my Spirit – dove wings – hovering above you, over you, surrounding you and protecting you. You are on your knees because you are surrendered! Your hands were in the air because you are truly abandoned. You were on the earth because I have a great call for you and the colours of the clouds of glory over you are my promises, my protection, my presence, my purity, my power and my authority

You are under my wings, my dear one. Safe in the wings of the Eagle. You will soar high and fly high by my power and my strength, the lower you go in yourself. You are truly abandoned. You are truly mine. You are truly covered in my presence, power, protection and promises. You are draped in royalty. You are purified like gold. You are my child and as you rise up in your identity in me you will see the earth shake and my glory come.

You are draped in royalty. You are purified like gold. You are my child and as you rise up in your identity in me you will see the earth shake and my glory come

Abandon yourself, more and more. Go lower and I will take you higher. For I can only use those in this time whose hearts are pure and whose hands are clean. I have washed you and purified you. Through my blood and water you have been made as white as snow. You are the righteousness of God, because of Jesus Christ. I have adopted you as mine – called you, chosen you, you are my child, my very own.

With a surrendered heart I empower and engulf you and I will go with you, to the ends of the earth. Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit upon you, in you, through you and around you. Surrender to me! Lay low  and you will be be released to go.”

With a surrendered heart I empower and engulf you and I will go with you, to the ends of the earth

“But I promise you this – the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be seized with power. And you will be my messengers to Jerusalem, throughout due dear, the distance profit provinces – even to the remotest places on earth!” Acts 1:8 TPT

“Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them. They were all filled and equipped with the Holy Spirit and were inspired to speak in tongues – empowered to speaking languages they had never learned.” Acts 2:3-4 TPT

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Zech 4:6 NIV

“For God made the only one who did not know sin to become sin for us, so that we who did not know righteousness might become the righteousness of God through our union with him.” 2 Cor 5:21 TPT

“Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favor now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin!” Rom 3:24 TPT

“When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. ” “When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?” Ps 91:1-4 , 9-10 TPT

“Be willing to be made low before the Lord and he will exalt you!” James 4:10 TPT

“God resists you when you are proud but multiplies grace and favour when you are humble. If you bow low in God’s awesome presence, he will eventually exalt you as you leave the timing in his hands.” 1 Pet 5:5-6 TPT

“As you yield freely and fully to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life. For your self-life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you! And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your old self-life from dominating you! So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self-life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit. But when you are brought into the full freedom of the Spirit of grace, you will no longer be living under the domination of the law, but soaring above it!” Gal 5:16-18 TPT
