Let’s talk about steps!
Ezekiel went from ankle deep, knee deep, and all the way to his waist to waters you had to swim in.
The LORD is saying, “It is past time for My Chosen Ones to have a change of heart and make up their minds, that they are not going to splash in ankle deep waters, but they are preparing to swim.
I have come to tell some of you who are treading water, “You are going to make it!”
The enemy may be saying over and over that you can’t make it, but remember this on your way to the ‘honey’, you may get stung a few times, but it will be worth, it as you swim out into the deep and keep advancing.
Those standing in ankle deep are about to say goodbye to the old pattern of wading in for something new is about to begin.
In the ankle deep water, it serves as a place to keep the waters just stirred up and muddy. But, I AM beckoning you to take another step, and go knee deep, for the deeper you are willing to go, the less flesh you see.
So, go ahead and take the NEXT step into waist deep waters. Now, pause, take a deep breath, and just like Ezekiel, make that decision to go on.
It is a choice just as it was for Ezekiel to decide to leave where he was. For in order to go on, you must choose to leave where you are,” says The LORD.
“The next step for some will completely change your lives. It is a whole new dimension. What does that look like to you?” asks The LORD.
“It means the end of some old familiar stuff. It means the confusion of the battlefield is clearing. The dust is settling. The caterpillar is breaking loose to the next stage, and just like the butterfly, you are getting your wings.
It is time to leave the Drama and Trauma and the misery of yesterday. The next step,” says The Father, “is taking you out of the mud!
The Holy Spirit is leading you out of the struggle into the next step. You are ready to step into a new current. As Ezekiel 47 speaks of, rivers in which to swim.”
In a Vision, I saw that some may choose ankle deep waters, but I saw some progressing to their knees.
I am seeing them moving a little farther and the water is now up to their waist. I hear the voice of the King of Kings calling to you, “Come on out into the deep. Yes, Deep is calling deep!
I have made you ready to be immersed completely in The River of Life. Go ahead and take that Nest Step, that will cause you to be totally immersed in the flow of new life,” says The Life Giver.
“The RIVER speaks of your progression. You may not be where you want to be, but take the Next Step, for with each step you come a little closer.
You may not be at the end, or even quite ready to begin. Maybe you are somewhere in the middle, but you are well on your way.
You have tasted of My Goodness,” says The Father, “and it made you hungry for more. I will not leave you wanting. So, go deeper, get ready for The Next Step that will take you to the next level.”
“He walked to the east with a measuring tape and measured off fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water that was ankle-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water that was knee-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet, leading me through water waist-deep. He measured off another fifteen hundred feet. By now it was a river over my head, water to swim in, water no one could possibly walk through.” Ezekiel 47:3-5 TMT.
The LORD says, “The Next Step is a step up. It is a major promotion.
The battle has been raging and very intense over the past week for many, because this is a Major Promotion.
This is not something you could make happen, but I AM stepping in to order your next step.
I AM moving in accelerated ways and I AM moving you into more than you can imagine.
So do not be moved by how the situation looks, even if it seems all the odds have been working against you, I say, do not be dismayed, for I AM shifting things.
I have heard your sighs, that it is too late, but I AM announcing to you that it is not over, for I AM releasing an alignment that will bring great joy, joy unspeakable,” says The Father.
“There have been many times when you were in over your head, and I stepped in and rescued you from drowning in your own sorrows.
But I, The Holy Spirit, AM The Comforter, and I say the flood your tears have reached a magnitude and healing has come.”
