This Is the Hour to See the Impossible!
I heard the Lord say, "I am moving in a way that you have never experienced before. Do not miss Me because you do not recognize Me. Listen for My voice. I am doing something new. It is time for you to step out on nothing but My Word. Your eyes must be focused upon Me, and your ears tuned to My voice. This is the hour to see the impossible!"
Stuck in a Storm
One day, with face to the floor, praying in my prayer room, I sensed the Lord leading me to a particular passage of Scripture that I have read hundreds of times. As I began to read, the words became alive to me, and I saw a revelation I had never seen in my studies. It was the familiar story of Peter stepping out of the boat and walking on the water with Jesus.
"Immediately He directed the disciples to get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side [of the Sea of Galilee], while He sent the crowds away." (Matthew 14:22, AMP)
The King James version reads: "...Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side..."
The word "constrained" is translated from the Greek word "anagkazo," meaning "compelled." Jesus forcefully compelled them to get into the ship and cross to the other side. (Photo via Pixabay)
"And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, He was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea." (Matthew 14:23-25, KJV)
In this passage, the Greek word that is translated as "tossed" also means "tormented." The disciples were stuck in the middle of the sea, tormented by the winds and the waves crashing in all around them. Could it be that you, too, are stuck in the center of a storm? Are you tormented? Today, it seems that the whole world is tormented and full of fear. In fact, fear has become a pandemic. Fear is not a feeling or an emotion, but it is a spirit, and it is not from God.
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7, KJV)
Set Up for New Revelation of God & a Miracle You've Never Dreamed Possible
Have you been obedient to His voice—just as the disciples were when they climbed into the boat and started to the other side—only to have the contrary winds blow against you? The enemy has tried to convince you that God has abandoned you. He has lied to you.
The Lord declares to you that He has not forsaken you! Instead, you are being set up for God to reveal Himself in a new way to you, performing a miracle you never dreamed was possible—all for the purpose of getting you unstuck!
"And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid." (Matthew 14:25-27, KJV)
Notice that Jesus walked on the very thing that was trying to destroy them. Many times Jesus will use unexplainable situations as His mode of transportation to give us a fresh revelation of who He is.
When Jesus came walking on the water, immediately the disciples were fearful. They had never seen Him walk on water before and reasoned that He must be a ghost. They were unable to conceive that this was their breakthrough.
Get Ready for God to Use the Unexpected
It is imperative that you do not miss the new thing God is doing because you have never seen Him move like that before. Don't allow fear to rob you of what God is doing for you. Get ready for God to use the unexpected. (Photo via Flickr)
Out of the Storm & Into Your Greatest Breakthrough: You Are Stepping Into the Supernatural Realm
"And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water. And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased." (Matthew 14:28-32, KJV)
Peter was the only one that believed that Jesus was who He said He was. He asked Jesus if he also could walk on the storm of destruction. Jesus said to him, "Come." That one word was all that Peter needed. When Jesus released that word, Peter stepped out on that which he thought would kill him and walked into a supernatural miracle. As Peter climbed out of the boat (the natural realm), he walked on the water with Jesus (the supernatural realm).
I prophesy to you today:
You are stepping into the supernatural realm. Your breakthrough is here. This is the hour for those who know their God to do great exploits. The enemy's storms that were sent to trap you in fear are now turning into your greatest breakthrough!
