I saw a Child of God walking on the water. Under the surface of the water, there were shadows.
They were shadows of the past. Things that haunted them. There were sorrows and pain and mournings for people who had passed, for things that could have been.
But The Spirit is speaking, “Be free of your sad stories, Beloved, they are but shadows under the water.
I have called you to walk up on the water. You are over and not under. You are above and not beneath.
Beloved. Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold I AM doing a new thing; now it shall spring forth; do you perceive it? The shadows of the past shall no longer haunt you as you focus on Me.
I AM turning things around, Dear One. I cause all things to work together for good to those who love Me and are called according to My Purpose. You are the called, the chosen, and the faithful.
Come out upon the Waters. Step out by faith. The Spirit keeps your feet steady and secure. Fear not, for I AM with you; be not dismayed, for I AM your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid. The Waters are the nations. I have called you to the nations. You were born for such a time as this.
The enemy below shall have no part in you. It is only a shadow with no substance. The devil has no more dominion over you.
I AM the God who wipes every tear from your eyes. The past shall no longer bring dark thoughts to mind.
My Light is shining upon your paths. Yea, when you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you shall fear no evil.
The LORD God is your strength, and I make your feet like hinds’ feet, I make you to walk upon the high places.
Greater Things shall you do! For I have shown you the Way. I AM opening up Paths for you to walk to the nations and I will not let you slip.
On these Paths of the Sea you will find your joy and peace and fulfillment. Arise and shine, Beloved.
Take My hand and walk upon the Waters. In My Presence is fullness of joy; at My Right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
WATER in the Bible : The sea, a body of water, symbolizes “peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.” (Bible Tools)
PATHS IN THE SEA : There are actual paths in the seas! On a monument erected by the state of Virginia to Matthew Maury’s memory is found a plaque that reads as follows: “Matthew Fontaine Maury, Pathfinder of the Seas, the genius who first snatched from the oceans and atmosphere the secret of their laws. His inspiration, Holy Writ, Psalm 8:8; Ecclesiastes 1:6.” Maury’s most famous Scripture-based insight is that the oceans have subsurface currents with regular circulation patterns—the “paths of the seas” in Psalm 8:8. (“The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the PATHS OF THE SEAS.”) (ICR,org.)
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
“God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” Revelation 21:4
“But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” He said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. “Why was your faith so small,” he said, “why did you doubt?”” Matthew 14:27
“They will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will triumph over them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and He will be accompanied by His called and chosen and faithful ones.” Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw…, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.” Revelation 17:14
