Winter Is Past, Spring Is Here

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen(Isaiah 43:18-20 NIV).

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone (Song of Songs 2:11 NIV).

This Is What You Were Born For

Though winter has come in your life, your spring of destiny and purpose is rising in rushes of green, shades of green never before seen, dripping with the dew of heaven (Genesis 27:28 Deuteronomy 32:1-3) ). Dawn is exploding with the music of My songbirds (Proverbs 4:18). I have sent them to sing, to proclaim over this season in your life, to make song among the branches of your life (Psalms 104:12). Listen to them sing. Flowers laden with the scent of heady perfume push through the earth. Though winter approaches in the natural, you My love will see and know a spring resulting in the greatest fruitfulness of your lifetime (Song of Songs 2:11). This is what you were born for.

Can You Smell The Freshness

Winter has been long, with only occasional showers of rain and you have overcome. I have been so amazed, so delighted at the thoughts and intents of your heart. Though you struggled, though you made mistakes, the purity of your heart and love for Me prevailed. Shafts of revelatory light are breaking forth through the portals of heaven. Can you smell the descending freshness? Dare you proclaim and no longer just hope. Yes!

The Pleasures At My Right Hand

How can two walk together unless they agree and you have agreed with Me. Therefore, a shifting has come (Amos 3:3). No longer will you cry, plead and beg, hoping somehow maybe, just maybe, victory will come. You have shifted from being a lowly beggar in your own estimation to a Priest of Proclamation, thereby becoming a radical receiver, a literal container for the power and glory which flows from My right hand (Psalms 89:13, Psalms 118:14-16). Ah, yes, there are pleasures at My right hand for evermore and I want you to experience them here and now (Psalms 16:11).

I Am Pulling Back The Curtain

I am pulling back the curtain, and you will see unexpected revelations and plans I have for you. What has been hidden is now seen. I am touching your eyes, your ears, and the deep senses of your heart. I am anointing your words with clarity and kindness, making them like a sharp sword (Psalms 45:1-3). Absorb the living Word and watch it manifest itself in full blown color (Psalms 19:14, Psalms 119:11). The words of your mouth will create spring wherever you go. I cause it to be so.

Stand Up, Spring Up

Stand up! Spring up! Proclaim the truth you have come to know; if you ask according to My will and believe I hear you, I will give you what you ask (1 John 5:14-15). I will back up every word of My will for you. Your heart of faith pleases me. Arise and shine! Spring has come and you are laden with fragrant aromas and drip with honey (Song of Songs 4:11). I will collect each bloom that is spent and disperse the seeds for future harvest. Not one drop of your life will be wasted. Not one drop of My blood shed for you will be wasted. I cover you, I cover the earth of your heart. I say, Come out into the Spring of your life. I am here.

Prayer

I humble myself before these wonderful words of love and embrace Spring, for my winter is past. The dew of Heaven is falling over my life with great mercy and grace. You are my delight Lord and I rejoice in you with exuberant praise for all you have done and will do. I receive Your words of declaration over me, over this season of my life. I watch expectantly as you pull back the curtain of revelation and understanding. Always keep me in the Secret Place of Your love.

I will hide the Word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Help my faith to grow to it fullest potential. I spend my life on You, Lord Jesus for You are worthy. I can smell and feel the newness of life You are imparting to me. Increase my faith and create in me a clean heart. May I always bring glory to Your name. I love you. Amen

Reflect and Journal

1. What songs of love can you hear the birds of heaven singing over you?

2. What does it mean specifically for you to enter a new season in your life?

3. In what areas do you need your faith to increase in and what can you do to facilitate the growth?

4. Reflect on the promises above and write a letter of adoration to the Lord and listen for His answer. He may answer you in a song, a poem, or cause you to remember a verse or maybe a promise you have long forgotten.
