Recently I heard the Lord say, "It's time for a new lease on life." When I researched the meaning of this phrase, here is what I came across: "A new lease on life" is defined as "an occasion when you become more energetic and active than before; an increase in the period for which something can be used or continued."
When the Lord spoke these words, I felt His heart for those people who have been battle weary, who have felt that they have come to the end of themselves, like the battle has been ongoing, where the "dark night" and the "stormy trials" just seem to gain intensity, rather than indicating the sun of a new morning and day rising.
Your New Lease on Life
I felt His words of comfort surround me. The excitement in His heart bubbled with the anticipation of a new day; the anticipation of the demonstration of His faithfulness toward His people.
As I leaned into His heart to hear more of what He was speaking, I heard His whisper:
"My people, the time to trust Me like never before has arrived. Trust not what your eyes can see. Trust in Me and My nature. Trust in My Word, for what I am doing in you now is more beautiful, glorious and wonderful than you can imagine.
"I am working deep in your hearts, I am working and rewiring your minds as you feast on My truth, and I am strengthening you for what is ahead. I am bringing you further into John 10:10, the abundant life that you have in Me. I am bringing you forth into a time where you will experience a new lease on life. You will have greater strength in Me than you have ever had. You will have greater peace in Me than you have ever known. You will have greater resilience against the schemes of the enemy than you have had before.
"I am increasing you, I am breathing life into you, I am strengthening you, empowering you, reviving you and refreshing you. I am the God who finishes the work that I started (Philippians 1:6). Be confident, My people, and trust in Me knowing that I am doing deeper things within you than you realize, and preparing you for all that is ahead. It won't be long now before you see the signs of the 'new lease on life' beginning to spring forth all around you. (Photo via Unsplash)
"Do not despise the pruning, for the pruning is happening to prepare you to carry more than you have carried, to go further than you've been and to do what you never thought you could do. I am establishing you in your identity in Me and the revelation of My life. You will not only find yourself again in Me but come forth stronger than before."
Developing in the Dark Room
I had a vision of a dark room where film is taken in to be developed. I saw Jesus standing in this room and it was very dark, quiet and still. He was gently, carefully and strategically working with these "negatives" and "film" to bring forth the photos. Once they were developed they were so crisp, so clear and so beautiful. They were such amazing photos!
I sense that many feel like they are in that "dark room" right now. It looks dark and it feels very quiet, very still, and you can't see what's happening, but Jesus is there with you and He has got this.
I heard His words surround me: "I've got this and I've got you, and VERY soon you will SEE what I have been developing IN you and FOR you."
Then the vision opened up before my eyes again, and as Jesus was hanging these beautiful photos up on the wire to dry, He turned one around and there was a Scripture written on the back:
"This is why the Scriptures say: Things never discovered or heard of before things beyond our ability to imagine—these are the many things God has in store for all His lovers." (1 Corinthians 2:9 TPT)
"But, as it is written, 'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.'" (1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV)
Trust Jesus and trust what the Holy Spirit is doing in your life. You might be feeling like you are in that "dark room," not knowing exactly what is happening, but He does. He is developing something more precious and beautiful than you have ever imagined. He is preparing you for something greater than you realize.
I then saw Jesus turn to me and whisper, "One of the greatest gifts My people will receive in the developing room is the place of REST in Me. The quiet trust and REST in Me will bring about great healing, strength and freedom."
"I am humbled and quieted in Your presence. Like a contented child who rests on its mother's lap, I'm Your resting child and my soul is content in You. O people of God, your time has come to quietly trust, waiting upon the Lord now and forever." (Psalm 131:2-3 TPT) (Photo via Pixabay)
"Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear"
The vision then shifted and I saw a car driving down a freeway. My eyes were drawn to its side mirrors. On the mirrors it said, "OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR." In the natural, this statement is placed on mirrors as a "warning," but when I looked at this statement in the vision, excitement rose up within me.
I heard the Lord say, "Many, finding themselves in the dark developing room right now, feel like the things I have spoken to them are further away than ever but, the truth is, My promises are CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR!
"My people, it is IMPERATIVE, in the dark developing room, that you fly as the eagle high above the natural, come up the mountain, and see from My perspective. For the developing room will be but for a moment, then you will enter into a fullness of your promises, destiny and acceleration unlike anything you have known before.
"This is the season of radical breakthrough. This is the season of seeing My power manifest like never before. The moments in the dark developing room do not mean the breakthrough is further away, it means I am developing deeper things within you so you can move further into breakthrough, promotion and acceleration of all that I have for you.
"You MUST have eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart that KNOWS My ways to understand what I am doing in these days.
"Lean in, push past the natural, and listen to My voice and you will see that some of the greatest 'developments' of My hand within you and for you are taking place RIGHT NOW!" (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
