I heard, “God is speaking to us in the night seasons.”
Not only at our lowest points, which are “night seasons” of the soul, but also in the literal night season, in between sleep and waking.
I call it the “In Between World”; the Realm of The Spirit where our Father can have our full attention without the cares of the world creeping in.
Like Jesus came to the disciples in the Fourth Watch of the night, so He comes to us in our night season when we are crying out to Him in our need.
God is speaking to us 24/7, but sometimes it is hard to hear His Voice.
God is so gracious and loving that He will come to us in between sleep and waking, to open our ears and give us messages, to comfort us and seal His instructions and give us revelation.
“Beloved. Do not fear. I AM He who keeps watch over you. I neither slumber nor sleep.
When things happen to you in the extreme, and when you think I have forgotten you, I shall unexpectedly appear for your relief and rescue.
All of a sudden, the storm shall become calm with one Word. Through all ages, I AM He who delivers you from your distress. I alone walk upon and still the sea of troubles.
I AM the God who reigns over Time. I come in the Fourth Watch of your night. Just when you think all is lost, I bring relief.
Not only do I come to calm your stormy sea, but I come to speak with you and call you out to walk with Me where I AM.
I AM your very present Help in time of need. I never want you to be in the dark, My Child.
Even when your soul is in distress, I will come to you in your sleeping and in your waking. I will come to you in the night seasons and in The Realm of The Spirit.
I will open your ears to hear. You will hear,”Be of good cheer— it is I — be not afraid.”
I shall give you Dreams and Visions to teach, and comfort, and uplift you. For what the natural man cannot hear or understand, you shall understand and hear by The Spirit.
I will give you counsel and instruct your heart in the night season. I AM your Help. In the Shadow of My Wings, you shall rejoice.
No matter how dark the Night may be, I AM He who is Light. Even the darkness is not dark to Me, but the night shines like the day.
No matter how late it may seem, I shall come to you walking upon the seas of chaos, and I will take your Hand and invite you to walk with me in The Realms of The Spirit.
You never have to be afraid of the dark, My Child. Arise, My love, My Beautiful One, and come away. Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says The LORD of Hosts.
