Moving Targets vs Sitting Ducks


While I was at a conference last week, the Lord brought my attention to the worshipers.  Many of them were dancing with abandon, rejoicing exuberantly and others were worshiping passionately with multicolored flags.  They were all continuously moving as they glorified Jesus in an extreme anointing.  As I observed them, The Lord showed me a picture of a shooting gallery with moving targets.  The faster the targets moved, the more challenging it was for the shooter to hit them.  The Holy Spirit said, a moving target is more difficult to aim at than a sitting duck.  As long as you keep moving with God, the enemy can not effect you.

The Lord says,

“I am calling you to move with Me and become ablaze with My glory.  As you continue to persevere and press in through difficult times, you will soon recognize the strategies of the enemy.  Allow the difficult situations to catapult you ahead, rather than allowing discouragement to overtake you.  Those who have confidence in Me, will not be moved by the fiery darts of the enemy.  They will have the wisdom to overcome every fiery dart that is sent against them.  Don’t allow anything to pull you back and don’t procrastinate any longer.  Be strengthened as you allow My word to dwell in you richly searching your innermost being and as you do, you will then discover the assignment that I have for you.  You will not go out in your own strength, but you will go in the anointing and authority that I have placed on your life.  Be willing to burn your bridges behind you and forget the mistakes from your past.

Run with the truth so that the adverse situation’s that arise will bring endurance rather than lethargy.  I will teach your hands to war and your fingers for battle.  I will train you how to adjust in difficult situations and show you how to use the stumbling blocks as stepping stones.  I will show you how to use every trial to take you to a higher level.  As you continue to move with Me, I will release you into a greater glory.  Allow Me to rekindle the fire in your life once again.  Don’t allow the enemy to gain ground, and don’t become a sitting duck to be hit.  As you continue to run with the vision, the enemy will not have a foothold.  Don’t do anything foolishly that will make you an easy target for the betrayer.  Those who know My word are not vulnerable to the adversary because they know who they are in Me.  I am calling you back to gain the spiritual momentum that you once had, and I will meet you as you draw close to Me, I will draw close to you,”
