This has been a unwanted season for many, a sense of desolation. A season of difficulty. It has been a time of change and of renewal, of praying and pressing in. A time of cutting off thought processes and portions of teaching that were not truth.
It has been difficult to release the old wine skins and accept the new. New Wine is now being poured, which requires New Wine Skins, those who have and are accepting the new Wine Skins are filling up, you are overflowing with the New Wine. Old Wine Skins would burst in this day. Removing the old and coming into the new is necessary change, for this season. Do not despair and do not fear. [“You can’t put new ideas into old mind-sets. You can’t get new results with old behaviors.”]
The Lord says,
“I have seen your anxieties and your frustration, think only on today for sufficient for today is the evil thereof. I AM lifting you out of this place, bringing you to a new level of growth through this seemingly desolate time, I AM smoothing the pathway ahead. Cutting off that which was not truth and re-training your mind-sets, to declare and decree promises I have made to you, for My promises are yes and amen.
I have brought you into a wider place. You will walk in strength and your land will be healed. I AM bringing you into a wide place, a place of blessings and favor, as you seek Me with all of your heart and soul and mind. Barrenness and desolation will not be your portion for this is the time for you to accept the fruit of the vine and to impart this to others.
The anointing that comes with the impartation will take your breath away. That which you have received from Me through these past seasons, you will impart to others. The emptying of yourselves is a necessary process to serve others, to love others even as I have called you to do, even as I have loved you.
Testimonies will bless many and will lift many out of their pit of despair. Where hope has been deferred, new hope will be released through the testimony of the goodness of God to all men. Release hope everywhere you go, have you seen the face of the hopeless?
See them and become the vessel I have called you to be, as I have called you out of darkness into My marvelous light, would you not be the vessels called to do the same.
Go into the highways and by-ways and feed My sheep. As you are fit for the Masters use, emptied of yourself and thinking of others, doing for others, serving others, for you have need of nothing. I AM your provider and you are the Sparrows that My eye is upon, you and you and you!
I watch over and caring for each one. The treasures of Heaven will be your portion.”
