By this point it is no secret that collectively we have crossed a threshold into a new era. The future is bright because Jesus is there, but we can’t go back. We can’t unlive what we are living now. Globally, we have all crossed over into unfamiliar territory, and what’s ahead depends on our response. Will we rise up to the “higher place”? Or descend into the lower place of fear, anxiety, and self-protection?
Surviving Or Thriving In The New Era?
Beloved, are you surviving or thriving in this season? Are you living disconnected from this moment? Does it feel like you’re white knuckling it until you get to the other side? What if instead of looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, you found the light IN the tunnel?
A new season requires a new way of being. The modes of operation quite simply, just won’t work in this new season the earth is in. If Jesus is your savior and you have His Spirit living in you, then you have the Spirit of the Creator living in you, longing to partner with you—to live the adventure of life with you—to release heaven on earth through you, even now! His plans and purposes for you have NOT changed, though the expression of them might. All that stands between surviving and thriving is leaning into creative process with the Creator.
Creative Process, quite simply, is the process of the Creator. He has shown us from the very beginning that it is His way to create from nothing, to redeem, transform, deliver, make new—creating is His way. Consequently, it is your way too, whether you are aware of it or not. It’s your way because you bear His image. It’s your way because you were made by Him and exist within the context of His ever unfolding creation, that is constantly in the midst of process. God LOVES process and He wants to teach us how to embrace it, yield to it, and thrive in it.
When we come into the saving knowledge of Jesus and His sacrifice made on our behalf, we are simply becoming conscious of the greatest story ever written (and still being written), and our small yet valuable part in it. It is the moment of waking up to who you’ve always been—His Beloved. It is the first awakening.
Right now we are all awakening, some slower than others, but awaken we must! For the slumber of disconnection from God is deep and convincing, and yet in a moment we can be awakened to the alarm in the spirit, alerting us to His presence and goodness, as if it’s always been set for that moment. This is one of those moments in time for the Bride collectively. We are being invited to run with Him in a new way, and for such a time as this!
“Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.” – Song of Songs 2:13 TPT
Living In The New Era
Everyone has an opinion on how you should be living in this season, this new era. However, no one can make the decision for you. Only YOU can surrender your life to the call of the good Bridegroom King. His invitation requires surrender, but on the other side of that surrender is holy empowerment.
Is He calling you to a new rhythm?
A new schedule?
A new refined focus?
What baggage do you need to lay down in order to run with Him today?
I echo with the voice of the One who’s calling you – we need you! We need you to shine His light in only the way YOU can. We need your voice to speak up and tell the stories only YOU can tell. It’s time for your facet on the diamond, to shine His light all over the earth! Your engagement with the call of God on your life in this new era affects us all. I hope and pray that as it becomes clear to you in this season how He is calling you to run with Him that you will say “Yes!”
What’s one thing you can do today to embrace the invitation to run with your Creator who calls you Beloved?
