The Lord showed me millions of hot air balloons being released way up into the sky. They were arrayed in various colors, shapes, patterns, designs, styles and sizes. Each one was beautiful and unique in appearance. They were vivid in color and extraordinary to watch.
It was a marvelous sight to watch as the balloons continued to ascend to higher heights but some seemed to be just lingering in mid air. Then I noticed that there were those that began to descend back down to earth. It seemed as if the balloons that were descending were losing their air. Some were flowing down slowly but there were others that were descending quickly. This is what the Lord was showing me.
Every one of us has the opportunity to rise up to new heights and new levels. There is a great acceleration in the body of Christ and the balloons that continued to ascend represented those Christians that are experiencing all the benefits of the Covenant that Jesus made with them and some are receiving divine encounters with the Holy Spirit. They are being raised up to a greater level and walking in the power and authority that was freely given to them. These are the ones that are entering in to their positions and callings. They are as the three hundred men chosen in Gideon’s army. Those men were not particularly favored but they were chosen because they were not fearful, they were bold and ready for challenges. They were strong in warfare, alert and watchful of the enemy.
Judges 7:7 “Then the Lord said to Gideon, “By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go, every man to his place.”
The balloons that were stuck in mid air represented people that seemed to be stagnant and stuck in the same position for some time. Those of you that are in this place need to encourage yourselves in the Lord and rise up once again.
1 Samuel 30 :6 “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.”
The balloons that were descending represented those people that have become weary in well doing. They feel as if they are losing their anointing. They are losing their zeal and power that they once had. Those of you that are in this place needs to make a decision that you are going to push through no matter what is holding you back from rising up.
Galatians 6:9 “And let us not be weary in well doing : for in due season we shall reap , if we faint not.”
Jesus is calling us to come up higher. I want to encourage you to press in for what God has for you and you will be amazed at the heights He will take you to.
Revelation 4:1 “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.‘“
