Day 53: Running in the Draft of the Holy Spirit (Feb 22)

The past several days, I have felt a deep, deep stirring.  One that I am becoming familiar with, but at the same time is always new.  It’s Holy Spirit breathing over me.  Breathing something new.  Stirring my spirit to begin to receive some new outpouring from the One.  My One true Love.

I am learning to begin to rest into that feeling.  When I begin to feel the stirring, I know that’s not the end of what is being said, but rather the beginning of fresh revelation and outpouring.  So, I have been soaking in Him a lot.  Spending all extra time worshiping and feeling the deepness.  Oh, how I love Him.  Oh, what a privilege it is to breathe in the breath of Life.

Recently, while running, I was worshiping and all of the sudden I saw myself.  As I was running, I started to sob, but immediately that broke off and I was surrounded in Light and full of joy. I could see a trail of golden light flowing from behind me as I ran.  I stretched my arms into the air and said, “Yes”.  God said, “Do you not know that I have already won this race you are running?. You are to enjoy running the victory lap”

He has turned my sorrow into JOY!

With a word from God, there is always an invitation.  Today He has invited me to run life as a victory lap!  Imagine if we all grasped that anything and everything we ever needed to see defeated, was already defeated at the Cross.  That moment in history that turned the whole world upside down and ripped the veil and Jesus took final victory over death.

Let that sink in a little bit.

We are running a “race” that’s already been won for us so in essence, if we just run in the draft of God we would be much less weary and increase in confidence in Him!  If that becomes our reality then I believe we would truly do the “greater things” that Jesus said we would do.

Yes, God is inviting me to step out further and further…..I won’t resist Him.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”  Isaiah 6:8

This verse keeps circling over my mind.  God has shown me my mission field and I accept! What shall I fear when You are leading me out!  What can mortal man do to me?

Oh God, You are my Redeemer, Lover and Friend. My Stronghold and Peace.  I commit myself to be fully Yours all over again.  Let my life be a delight for You.  Let me always delight IN You.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

What, then, shall we say in response to this?  If God is for us, who can be against us?  Romans 8:31

You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.  O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.  Psalm 30:11-12
