I heard, “The LORD of the Waters” and “Sad stories are but shadows.”
I had a vision of an expanse of water. A Child of God was looking down upon it. There were shadows in the water, but his feet were far above the surface. And I heard this: ” Fear not. Take My Hand and dance with Me upon the Waters of Life.”
“Beloved. Be free of your sad stories, My Child; they are but shadows under the water. My Spirit is hovering over these chaotic waters. I have rescued you from these deep waters of trouble.
When the waves of death engulfed you; when the torrents of chaos overwhelmed you; when the snares of death confronted you, I drew you out of the deep waters.
I rescued you from your powerful enemy, from foes too mighty for you. Though they confront you in your day of calamity, I AM always your support.
I have brought you out into the open; I rescued you because I delight in you, My Child. I have called you to walk UPON the water.
Though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you shall fear no evil. You are over and not under. You are above and not beneath. My Spirit keeps your feet steady and secure.
I AM He who brings order out of chaos, beauty from ashes, miracles out of mayhem, testimonies out of trials! Fear not, Beloved!
Because of your new birth, you have been translated from this kingdom of darkness into My Marvelous Light. You have flourishing vitality and LIFE through the Son. I AM The LORD of the Waters.
As I have walked on the seas and calmed fierce tempests with a Word so shall you, Dear One. Greater things shall you do.
Let not the dark shadows of evil fill your mind but concentrate on the Light of My Face. Come, take My Hand and escape the shadows of this earthly life and let Me lift you up by the Spirit.
You belong to Me. Dance with Me upon the Living Waters!”
CHAOS : Strong’s Hebrew 8414: chaos, confusion, desolation, unreality, emptiness.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and void, (chaos) and darkness was over the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters,” Genesis 1:1-2.
“He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from foes too mighty for me. They confronted me in my day of calamity, but The LORD was my support. He brought me out into the open; He rescued me because He delighted in me,” 2 Samuel 22:17-20.
“To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of The LORD, that He may be glorified,” Isaiah 61:3.
“I will call upon The LORD, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies. For the waves of death engulfed me; the torrents of chaos overwhelmed me. The cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon The LORD; I cried out to my God. And from His temple He heard my voice, and my cry for help reached His ears…. He reached down from on high and took hold of me,” 2 Samuel 22:4-7 BSB.
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of The LORD for ever,” Psalm 23:1-6.
