And the LORD answered me:"Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it."
What was Sent to Drown You
becomes a Wave of Destiny
I was taken into a vision this morning where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos, and distraction sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it caught them off guard.
I’m originally from Northern California where the coastline is known for “sleeper waves”. These are very large and powerful surges that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline, producing a powerful and deadly undertow. These waves are known for pulling a swimmer, or a person walking on the shore, out into the turbulent sea.
This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It is as if you were swimming in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him on shores of grace, and suddenly you are caught by a sleeper wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the sea.
In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person drowning. As I saw this, I also saw the Lord with them and heard Him say,
“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”
When someone is drowning, the worst thing they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax, depending completely in the good intentions and competence of the person who has come to save them, the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.
The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. The fear has been blinding you from seeing Him, but know this; He is with you to rescue and save you.
The vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They relaxed into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to shore. Yet it was not the shore that they has been on, but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny.
So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us than would have been possible if the attack not come. This is happening for many right now. We know from Scripture that when the enemy comes; like a flood the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.
Years ago God told me to be aware that demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him, it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. The demonic forces fall into absolute chaos and confusion; and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven!
If you have been caught by a spiritual “sleeper wave” that has pulled you into its grip, threatening to pull you under and drown you, then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the shore of destiny, where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
