I hear the Lord say, “Do you hear the sound of many waters, it’s time to push, for your promise is at hand.”
Behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the EAST. His voice was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with His glory.
Ezekiel 43:2 NKJV
Mid-January 2020 before the rain started to fall in Australia, I stood in my garden and heard the sound of a deep rumbling frequency. As I turned around I saw a huge wave of water surging from the east. I sensed this water coming was going to be a sign of what was about to take place. And it will be like nothing that we have ever seen before.
The Lord has been showing me through dreams, visions, sounds, water leaks in my family homes in both Sydney and Adelaide, and floods across the east coast of Australia, that there is a great birthing about to take place in the spirit. These waters represent the sign of the promise being birthed.
There are many of us giving birth to something bran new and there is a sense in the air of intimidation and even rejection, because the onlookers do not understand the call on your life. Take courage and keep going. One day others will see, and some won’t but don’t allow the options of others to stop you from going after what you know you were made for.
I hear a loud cry rising out of the mouths of God’s people. They are roaring the words, “Am I now trying to win people’s approval or God’s? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Messiah!
Galatians 1:10 TLV
While hearing God’s heart on this word, I went into a vision that brought me back to a dream I had recently of a woman giving birth. It was a supernatural birth as the baby was so big it was humanly impossible to give birth to it. After the lady gave birth, she stood up and went about her business as if she didn’t give birth at all. Then I heard the spirit whisper, “What appears humanly impossible is more than possible with God. For God can do what man cannot.”
Luke 18:27 TPT
Mary had an impossible promise from the Lord, she chose to trust ‘the God of the impossible’ and trust in His divine plan to bless her. The odds seemed against her, facing the possibility of being stoned to death or outcasted from her community. Despite these odds, Mary chose to say yes and birth the promise. Through this act, Mary became the vessel of God for the entire World to have an opportunity to come into right standing with God, through the promised Jesus, the Messiah.
Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Grace to you, young woman, for the Lord is with you and so you are anointed with great favour.” Mary was deeply troubled over the words of the angel and bewildered over what this may mean for her. But the angel reassured her, saying, “Do not yield to your fear, Mary, for the Lord has found delight in you and has chosen to surprise you with a wonderful gift. You will become pregnant with a baby boy, and you are to name him Jesus.
Luke 1:28-31 TPT
The Lord is saying, Do not allow the pain of the pushing/birthing to dishearten you. This birthing pain is necessary to enable you to carry the weight of the promise and walk it out with endurance. “And know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NKJV
The Lord is reminding me that there is exceedingly abundant joy on the other side of birth. Once you get through the pain of the final pushes of childbirth and get a hold of your promise, all of the birthing pains are forgotten! “Just like a woman giving birth experiences intense labour pains in delivering her baby, yet after the child is born she quickly forgets what she went through because of the overwhelming joy of knowing that a new baby has been born into the world.”
John 16:21 TPT
After giving birth, you do not comprehend fully how to steward your baby (promise), but as you walk hand in hand with God, He guides you step by step in what to do. Sometimes you may fall, but falling is ok, through the falling you will be reminded of your need for him. Our Father desires intimacy and connection with you, more than the outcome or achievements of your work. Trust that as he partners with you in the birthing, and as your trust deepens, he will work all things together for your good because He loves you!
This is a call to take hold of faith and to cease doubting the sovereign power of God at work in you, that he will accomplish every promise if you choose to never quit.” He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” Ephesians 3:20 TPT
“ITS TIME TO PUSH, FOR YOUR PROMISE IS AT HAND”
