Feel like you have been dropped in a well? A Deep Well? You are not forgotten friend.
These powerful words flowed out in a prophetic word for Dave and me last week while attending school (BASSM):
“You have been digging a deep, deep, well for a long time. Many, many, years….Fresh new water is coming in..It tastes like wine…” This was the beginning of a long prophetic word from the beautiful and anointed prophetess, Lacy Thompson. It was a night to remember.
This “deep well” word brings up many thoughts and reflections of waiting, praying, and believing God for the restoration of a heart’s desire.
A few days later I spent some precious time with a friend reading over Isaiah 58. As we talked, a light went off in my spirit. So, as I share this Vinedresser word from a year ago, may I encourage you with these short thoughts in the Vine?
He knows where your heart is breaking and trusts you to walk through the process for healing.
“Few are patient enough to be dropped to this level of intimacy.” (The Vinedresser)
He sees you extending your heart to those around you, ministering faithfully to others, as you wait for Him to move on your behalf.
As you walk faithfully in the Vine allowing God to do the pruning of your heart, the breaking off brings the making for the breaker anointing.
You can impart and extend your breakthrough to those close to you.
Stay in His Presence friend. Seek Him out in the midst of your darkness or your questions.
He is here. His glory is on you. Open heavens are with you every place you walk.
This is the year for favor to arise for you. You are being called out from a hidden place to walk fully into your destiny.
From your home to your workplace, to your circle of family and friends, God is raising you as a forerunner to bringing Heaven to earth. He has called you not to break the mold but create the mold of what a true Kingdom messenger looks like.
This is not an agenda. This is not about your performance. This is not about fasting and doing a list of religious duties. This is not about you striving to bring about what you think needs to happen.
This is about relationship. This is about abiding. This is about intimacy.
I hope you can read all of Isaiah 58 and let the Lord draw some deep, sweet, revelation wine for you to drink.
I’ll leave you with a few verses that seemed to go well with this Word from The Vinedresser.
Hold on. He won’t drop you. Will you trust HIM to drop you deep into the well of His Presence?
“If you extend your soul to the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places:
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
You may be in a battle right now. You feel the heat of the moment with stress clinging to your mind, sapping your strength. The abide mode here means you step away and rest to refresh yourself. Drink deep from the refreshing pool of His Presence. Drink the wine of hope and love.
Stop. Listen. Do you hear that? He’s telling you how much He loves you and He won’t let go.
Listen To The Vinedresser
“You do not have to be afraid. I have bought you with a price. I have called you by name. You are mine. Even if the water around you is cold and dark, I am still here. Do you trust Me to drop you deep down into the well of My Presence, My pleasure?
“I have the rope and I will not drop you. Where I take you the water is sweet and refreshing. If you try to climb the rope back up the well, the water will be bitter. So do not press and strain. I am taking you to a deep place in the well of My Heart.
“I trust you with this process. Few are patient enough to be dropped to this level of intimacy. It may seem cold, damp, and lifeless. It is not. You will learn that My Presence is here to warm your heart with My peace, to bring light and hope amidst the waiting. I have not forgotten you. Nothing will compare to what I am going to do. I am doing something new and it’s beginning to happen. You will find a refreshment that will spill out to others. I trust you with this pure water, this message. As I refresh you, I cause you to refresh others with words of life. Hold on now child. The sound of the drip in the deep well is your assurance I am here.”
Love The Vinedresser
I’ll cover you in prayer. I believe in you. I am honored to be in your grandstands of life waving my white towel as I cheer you on in this race you’ve have won called life.
In the sweet spot…In The Vine,
PS Please share this word with a friend who may be in a dark place needing hope. Thanks.
Praying for you!
