Lana Vawser: "I'm Leading You Deeper Into the River of My Rest - For Greater Empowerment"

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

On this Labor Day...which is a day of rest for many of us here in the US, we wanted to post this prophetic word from the Lord from Lana Vawser, in which she shares about the "deeper rest" the Lord is leading us into.

Now, let this be clear...Rest doesn't mean inactivity, it means trusting Him, being full of peace, letting Him refresh your soul, and get charged for much more that He is leading us into.

Lana shares here:

I then saw many of God's people continue to float along, and I watched a level of empowerment coming through the place of rest into their hearts, souls and lives that they haven't experienced before and their capacity is being increased. The intense weariness that has plagued so many was breaking off.

If you're dealing with weariness and need the refreshing rest of the Lord...this word by Lana is for you! Let it empower you as the Lord leads you into HIS rest!

As I spent time with the Lord on a recent morning, I kept seeing a river that was flowing strongly. The current in this river was very powerful, but this river was also inviting and full of peace.

As I am watching this river flowing strongly, I felt the Lord saying, "I am leading My people deeper into the river of My rest where they shall find a greater empowerment and be led suddenly into the 'next best' that I have for them! The invitation into this river was inviting and was very strong. The invitation wasn't, "Come and dip in your toes," the invitation was, "Come all in, in over your head."

On the banks of the river I could see the swirling of what has been going on in the spirit over the past while, where many had been left wondering where they were going or what's going on. The sense of invitation in the atmosphere suddenly increased even more. I could feel the passionate, longing heart of Jesus for His people to come into the river. I then began to hear the same verse again that I heard in the Lord speak to me about in July of this year:

So we conclude that there is still a full and complete "rest" waiting for Believers to experience. As we enter into God's faith-rest life we cease from our own works, just as God celebrates His finished works and rests in them. So then we must give our all and be eager to experience this faith-rest life, so that no one falls short by following the same pattern of doubt and unbelief. Hebrews 4:9-11 (The Passion Translation)

As this verse was so loud in the spirit all around me, I watched as many of God's people began to jump into this river and dive in deep. The only requirement of diving into this river was answering His invitation with, "YES."

Jump In and Trust Him

I watch God's people, who have jumped into this river simply through obedience, be overtaken by a peace they have not experienced before. I see them floating on their backs so rested, so joyful, so full of confident expectation of hope and joy of what Jesus is doing and about to do. (Photo via Pixabay)

As they were floating along in this strong and powerful current, I noticed that many of their eyes were closed. The peace is SO deep, the trust is SO deep in Jesus, that there's NO FEAR. They don't even need to "SEE" where they are going. They just know they are held by Him and He is leading them.

But as they are flowing along I hear the Lord saying, "STRIVING AND SELF PROMOTION WILL SNAG YOU!" I could feel His heart of love in the "letting go" and coming "deeper still" in trust, and there is a temptation of the soul for various reasons to "push ahead" when He is saying "wait." The key of flowing in this river of His rest was laying back into His arms in surrender with a heart cry that says, "Your way, Your time!"

We must continue to examine our hearts in the light of His presence and make sure no striving or self-promotion creeps in. If it does, we must move toward His heart in repentance and invite Him in to bring us to a place of deeper rest and healing of heart and soul.

I then saw many of God's people continue to float along, and I watched a level of empowerment coming through the place of rest into their hearts, souls and lives that they haven't experienced before and their capacity is being increased. The intense weariness that has plagued so many was breaking off.

Rest to Your Heart and Soul

Flowing along in this river, I could see the Spirit of God doing such a deep work in their hearts and souls. I heard the Lord saying, "Yes there has been great opposition, yes there has been great weariness and pressure, and now in encounters with Me and encounters with My love, I am bringing REST to the heart and soul. Many have been 'treating' this weariness externally, where the 'root issue' needs to be healed internally. (Photo via souvenirpixels)

"I am dealing with unbelief and fear and I am bringing My people to a higher level of faith. In seeing Me, I am BREAKING OFF the pressures of man that have come over many in this season in the place of surrender and repentance that many of My people are moving in, for moving in unbelief and fear, I am releasing an UPGRADE AND IMPARTATION OF FAITH! SOAKING in this season is a KEY for many. Soaking in worship, soaking in My presence is a KEY that will set them FREE and see them flow deeper in My river of rest."

What had entangled many of God's people - deep fears, deep worries, deep anxieties, and deep concerns - were all falling away in this beautiful river of His Spirit; the great river of rest that flowed from seeing Him! Cyclical entanglements of the soul and ongoing issues suddenly began breaking off and a whole new realm of glorious whirlwinds of the Spirit, revelation and change will be released in its place.

As many of God's people are flowing in this river I see the SHIFTING of mindsets, heart beliefs and the very season many have walked. The SHIFTING to the revelation of what I felt He was declaring from His heart: "I'VE GOT THIS! No matter what you are facing I'VE GOT THIS!! I am moving you TOWARD LIFE as you rest in Me."

The river was so accelerated, yet so peaceful. In this place of rest in Him, I saw greater fruitfulness flowing through the lives of God's people like they had never experienced. I saw bodies being healed suddenly. I saw hearts being mended. I saw a breaking free of generational limitations, unbelief limitations and fear limitations. Where many have thought the "rest of God" meant "do less," the Lord was highlighting that this was a "heart and soul" issue. While entering deeper into this place of rest of heart and soul in Him, the PROMOTION was taking place. He was adding more!

God's NEXT BEST STEP is before MANY right now, but the KEY to getting to that NEXT BEST STEP is LIVING DEEP IN THE PLACE OF REST! Trust! Faith! Hope! He is healing hearts, souls, bodies and minds in the river of rest. JUMP IN! The river of rest is leading you to a place of greater faith, seeing impossibilities bow, sudden shifts, and HEAVEN INVADING EARTH MANIFESTED!
