The other day I was in a department store and I noticed that the “up” escalator was not working. An escalator is a moving staircase for carrying people between floors in a building. Several people including myself, didn’t want to walk up a malfunctioning escalator, so we walked away and took the elevator. This is what the Holy Spirit showed me. The Lord wants to take us to another level, but many of you are depending on Him to advance you to a higher place without making an effort on your own.
Some of you are trying to gain momentum in your spiritual life without spending time with Him or reading His word. The only way to understand spiritual things and learn to hear Jesus voice is through a personal relationship with Him.
The Lord says;
“I am calling my people to come up to new levels. I am calling each one of you to a place of intimacy where you will experience My presence in a new way. As you come in to this place of rest, you will develop the relationship with Me that you have longed for. This is the place where I will meet with you. This is the place where you will hear My voice. It is the place where My anointing will be released and you will encounter Me in a fresh and new way. This is the place where My revelation is deposited, My gifts are cultivated and My Word will come alive. This is the place that brings refreshing to your soul. As you come into this place, you will escape out of the distractions of the world.
Don’t be afraid to go to a higher level. Don’t fear the higher heights. As you come to Me in this secret place, release your fears, your burdens and anxieties. Approach Me in a new way, asking for wisdom and revelation. Submit your requests to Me and make your dreams known to Me as you come before Me with your prayers and petitions. This place of intimacy is the stairway to a higher level. This is the place where you will find joy unspeakable and full of glory. This is the place that will bring peace to your heart and mind. All the turmoil that you have been experiencing will dissipate as you enter the secret place and take your mind off the natural realm. As you allow Me to usher you into a higher place, you will find peace even in times of distress because I am present and My Shekinah Glory is in this place,”
says the Lord.
