The Winds of the Lord are Blowing!
Read Ezekiel 37:1-14
There is a call from the Spirit of the Lord to His people right now:
- Speak / Prophesy
- Hear / Receive
- Respond / Obey
- Establish / Occupy
v.1 “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, o dry bones, hear the word of the Lord…”
The Lord is breathing afresh on His people. There is a voice calling out for the breath of God to breathe again on His people to rise up, take their place, and be the mighty army that we are called to be. He is releasing a fresh baptism in the Fear of the Lord.
This weekend at the “Reset” conference there was a continual declaration and call going forth from the heart of the Lord to receive the wind that He is sending forth in this moment in history. The breath of the Lord is breathing on the dry bones of our lives. He is setting us free from the bondages, mindsets and entanglements of the last season.
I want to challenge you to first speak and prophesy over your life. I encourage you even now to lift your hands in a new place of surrender to the Lord and speak out of your mouth, “Father, I declare the breaking off of the bloodline curses of the past season and I receive Your fresh wind for my life. I want to rise up in the newness of resurrection power to accomplish the task You are setting before me in this season. I break off the old mindsets and thought patterns that would keep me in a place of bondage to the dysfunction of the last season, and receive the wind of Your breath to bring forth the newness of life for the new season!”
The voice of the Lord is calling things into order in His people. The winds of deliverance are blowing across the earth. There is a fresh release of the Fear of the Lord. The Father is bring us to a renewed place of devotion and consecration. He is breaking off the old and setting us into the new place He has for us in this hour. Receive the order of the Kingdom of heaven in your life in a new way.
v.4 “‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’”
Secondly, tell your spirit man to hear and receive the word of the Lord. Begin to speak to your spirit man and call it to attention to the word of the Lord. Say to your spirit man, “Perceive what the Lord is doing in this hour. Receive a fresh impartation of the breath of God. The life of God.” Allow your spirit man to receive a fresh impartation of the wind of the Spirit and let Holy Spirit break off the old of the past season.
v.10 “So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.”
Thirdly, respond and obey what the Lord shows you to do. The dry bones stood. They responded to the word of the Lord. I declare over you as you receive the breath and word of the Lord for your life in the new season, that you would be endowed with great grace to follow through with the direction of the Lord. Stand and take your place in your kingdom authority in this hour. It is not a time to cower back and allow your heart to wax cold. Let Holy Spirit reignite your first love and send you out with a fresh anointing to do Kingdom exploits.
v.12-14. “Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. 13 Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, My people. 14 I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken and done it,” declares the Lord.”
Lastly, as you rise up as part of the mighty army, with renewed strength and Holy Spirit power… OCCUPY YOUR INHERITANCE! When you respond in obedience and the fear of the Lord, He will cause you to take the land that He is giving you. Be encouraged. Receive the fresh wind of God’s Spirit. Obey and respond in the fear and reverence of the Lord. Occupy your inheritance!
