There is a wrestle that wants to take you away from Me. But you must fight within, and fight with all your might. Learn to come and be quiet, to understand what I am saying to you. I am speaking with a great command. Come up with Me and I will equip you might and power. My Spirit comes to hover over thee, you cannot do this without Me! I shall carry you in this hour, every step of the way. I have given you the path of righteousness, for Me.
Excerpt from a prophetic psalm on February 23, 2017 in Hear My Heart’s Cry.
This present global shakening is very unsettling. Nothing is the same. We try to do things we used to do, and find it is hard or impossible. God is using this time to expose to us the wrestle that is within us, showing us the areas where our flesh is out of alignment with God and His ways.
Amos 7:8-9 “…I am setting a plumb line in the midst of My people…”
A PLUMB LINE is a weight suspended from a string used as a vertical reference line to ensure a structure is centered. A plumb line is always perpendicular and always straight. God has set a plumb line in His Word for how we are to live our lives, it is called HOLINESS!
Even though we as believers have God living within us, we don’t always LINE UP with Him in every area of our lives. In this “change of seasons” He is calling us to come closer to Him so He can bring about a realignment, reboot, recalibration, and renewal…in all our lives. In order to do this, we need to honestly face the giants in our own lives, and stop making excuses for our attitudes and behaviors that do not line up with God’s ways.
Walking in alignment with God’s plumb line requires deep intimacy with God that is developed in the garden – our time alone with God in worship, His Word, and conversation (prayer) with Him. God’s plumb line never compromises, and it never moves. We must be Holy as God is Holy!
God spoke to us in prayer this week that we must position ourselves in Holiness in the garden to abide and eat from Him. He desires to speak to us and to give us revelation. The Lord went on to tell us that if we sit and abide with Him, He wants us to be an olive tree that will produce fruit. This fruit will then be crushed and pressed to make the purest and best oil to be used in God’s temple. Then we will be able to be a light to the nations.
That is God’s cry to us in this time of history. God’s people are being crushed and pressed at this time. We must arise and line up with God’s plumb line and live holy lives, so we can then be a light to the people all over the world who do NOT know the Lord Yet. God does not want anyone to perish, but come to know Him intimately for all eternity! God is pleading with us in this time to completely bow to Him and His ways of Holiness! Will God find that our oil is pure?
