Standing or Moving Forward

Melissa—The more we wake up the more we live as a son.  I had a recent revelation about prayer.  You know how sometimes you pray and pray and pray for something to change or manifest in your life and it seems like the prayer falls on deaf ears? The Lord showed me a picture of me just standing in one spot praying my repetitive prayer and nothing happening. Then He showed me a picture of me doing the same thing but instead of standing still I was moving forward, putting one foot in front of the other, continually moving ahead and reaching the answer.  Then He broke it down for me. The first picture of standing still was a victim posture, staying in the same posture, waiting on a “magical moment” to change my circumstances.  The second picture of moving forward was the posture of a son walking onward knowing there is good in God’s intention for my life which is ahead of me.  So, let me say it this way, a victim waits for magic but a son walks in inheritance.  I am waking up.  Thank God.  Awakening is upon us. Get ready.  Being awake is a whole new state of existence.  For this reason He says, ‘Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light’.” (Ephesians 5:14 AMP) [Final segment of “Waking Up”]
