Learn to Ride the Waves

As the self-professed “perpetual student,” I’ve been participating in a few prophetic courses over the summer to continuously sharpen my gifts. Last week there was an activation that took place in one of the classes to which the prophet instructed each of us participants to visualize a river. Before she ever said a word, God began to show me a picture of a large body of water. This body of water was not just any body of water, it was special. There was lots of chaos, yet many blessings flowing in the midst of this water rafting ride. This large body of water was a torrent river of miracles to those who fervently pursue righteousness.

There was a water raft filled with people and they were riding the wave just as a skillful sailor would. The waves were no ordinary waves. These waves were wild. The waves roared as the raft skillfully navigated the pre-appointed course. Isaiah 51:15 reminds us that the LORD our God, stirs up the sea and its waves roar (the LORD of hosts is His name). The large body of water is controlled by the Lord of Hosts and even though situations seem to be controlled by the adversary, I am here to assure you God is in control. You may have been experiencing unfavorable situations lately, but I declare this is a time of favor in your life. The waves may seem wild and the situations you have been facing may seem as if they’re unbearable. Your back may have been against the water and you may not see a way out, but the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and its waves roar (the LORD of hosts is His name). "I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, 'You are My people.'" Isaiah 51:14-16 Now is the time to declare with your mouth, His words that supernatural favor is indeed your portion and you will receive supernatural favor in the second half of this year. I prophesy to you now that you will not die in the dungeon and you will not lack anymore. The exodus from your exile is here. Our God has the power to terrify the sea, in turn making the waves roar...This. is. His. Favor. He’s terrifying the situations in your life and causing them to favor you in your current situation if you’d just learn how to ride the wave. Reframing your perspective is imperative in this season.

Just as God favored the Children of Israel during the Exodus from Egypt, God is favoring you during your exodus from bondage into the land of favor. It has been made clear that Israelites are His people and He is the one who keeps them.   Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain – Psalm 127:1. A life apart from Abba is no life to live at all. The wild waves you deem unbearable in your life, The Lord of Hosts has allowed and if you just open up your mouth with His words, you could navigate the waves and ride them with immense favor just as a skillful sailor. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. –Proverbs 3:4 I speak to all of the believers fervently pursuing righteousness, yet still facing much opposition: there is a river on the inside of your belly and living waters shall flow forth as you begin to command favor concerning the wild waves along your course. From those dry places, when you seek Abba you will be filled, you will receive an overflowing experience of God’s power upon your life. How many of you know that’s supernatural favor? Heaven’s trumpets have sounded and supernatural favor is flowing forth in your life just as the torrent river those rafters sailed on in the vision I’d had in class. Choose today to ride the waves where the rushing water flows. - PT
