I heard THE LORD say, “Hold on, what you see is a distraction!”
Every day comes with its own troubles. Even if yesterday we were so filled with The Spirit, happy and praising God, if we are not filled today, the troubles of the day may come against us as though they didn’t know we are carriers of God’s power.
We have a lot of promises from The Word, but I see something needful that seemingly looks simple, but the most difficult to do in seeing the fulfillment of God’s Promises. STANDING.
A lot of places in scripture we see the word.. stand and see the deliverance of The LORD….
We also see the case of Israel and the Egyptians as they were faced with the red see before them and the Egyptian army behind them!
“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace,” Exodus 14:13-14 emphasis added.
A lot of people blame the Israelites for complaining and murmuring, yes that is bad but there was a pressure.
They could see their enemies right behind them and the red sea right in front of them, but they could not see their God.
Yet they were asked to ‘Stand Still.’ All they had was one man saying to them STAND STILL and see the salvation of the LORD.
The enemy understands that one thing the heart hates is Standing Still, even though it is the greatest weapon in our warfare.
We are in a situation where the fires are behind us and the overwhelming waters before us.
The truth is that if we want to look the way the Israelites looked we will murmur and complain and wish we had being left to slavery in Egypt.
But if we choose to Stand Still by looking at things from the heart through God’s Word we will see the salvation of The LORD upon us.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee,” Isaiah 26:3.
In a vision of two wrestlers, a huge strong man and another man, they had a coach over them.
I saw them in a training session and as the coach left the two men to train while he went to fix something in the next room.
I saw the huge strong man turn the training into a real fight, without hinting to the other man, and was knocking the head of the man on the floor, intending to knock him off before the coach would return.
Coming out, I was led by the Spirit to;
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil,” Ephesians 6:11.
Then The LORD said to me, “Say to My Body, ‘The season of abundance is upon you, but Stand and be Alert, for the enemy intends to knock you off before your breakthrough arrives.
All the troubles you see today, you will see no more as your heart is turned and fixed on Me.
You are crossing over to the unprecedented manifestation of My Glory. But hold on, what you see is a distraction.
My Salvation is manifesting for you, as your eyes are fixed upon Me.’ “
