Recently I had an encounter with the Lord and I saw a girl sitting on a kerb with her head in her hands. Her heart was crying out “Where are you Lord?”, “What are you doing in my life?”, “I don’t understand.. what’s happening..!!!”, “when will this all make sense and the pressure lift?”. The cries were rising from her heart to the Lord and I could feel the despair and discouragement in her heart. Not only from the ‘lack of breakthrough’ and still being in the ‘place of waiting’, but feeling like things had changed in her relationship with Jesus. The heaviness and pressure of the season had left her feeling like she was not as close to Him as she once was, and things felt dry. She reminded me of the Shulamite woman in Song of Songs longing, crying out and looking desperately for her Beloved.

As I am looking at her sitting on the kerb, my vision was narrowed and I could only see her. My vision was then expanded and I saw Jesus, He was sitting on the kerb next to her. He had his head rested on her shoulder and He had a smile on His face. The sense surrounded me so strongly flowing from His heart “I haven’t left you, I am right here with you. I am enjoying just being with you. Being still with you. In this place you have been brought into a deeper level of contending with Me. Our intimacy is indeed going deeper. In this place I am increasing your hunger and I am EXTENDING YOU so I can add MORE TO YOU. Where you feel I may be silent, I am right here! I am doing more than you realise.”

This sense then fills the atmosphere that is so strong it almost had an audible voice. I heard “LIFT UP YOUR EYES AND BEHIND YOU”. Instantly I see that the Lord gives this girl vision to see what has been going on “behind her back” (in the most glorious way).

I watch as she begins to see what has been happening behind her back. There are angels everywhere. These angels are marking out a “plot of land” with plumblines and levels. They are going around measuring. These angels have one pencil in their mouth and one behind one of their ears. In one of their hands they each have a clipboard and they take the pencil out of their mouths and they begin to “take note of the measurements”. Everything needs to be exact and precise to what Jesus has told them. They start putting tent pegs in the ground and attached to them are strings. They are stretching these strings all across the ground to measure “something”.

Instantly I hear the Scripture from Psalm 16:6:

“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”

I am surrounded with the sense of EXTENSION and INCREASE that is about to EXPLODE in SIGNIFICANT WAYS in this girls life from the inheritance she has in Christ.

Immediately after that Scripture I hear 1 Chronicles 4:10:

“He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.” (NLT)

Instantly the sense comes to me that this girl represents many in “the Bride”.

The atmosphere becomes electric and I hear “Many in My Bride are feeling like I am being quiet in their personal lives, or they aren’t hearing as often, or things in our relationship feel dry and not as deep as we once were and they think they have done something wrong, but amongst those feelings they continue to chase hard after Me, I say unto them “Look with eyes of the Spirit and look what I am “setting up behind your back and behind the scenes. I am setting something up that is bigger than you could imagine. I am actually extending your borders and your tent pegs. I am extending you to CARRY MORE. You are about to move into greater promotion and responsibility.”

I want to encourage you today that if you’re feeling like the girl in this encounter, hold on. He is with you! He hasn’t left you! He’s setting things up for you. Look with the eyes of the Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to EXTEND your vision. He is extending you in the contending to carry MORE than EVER before. Your intimacy and encounters with Jesus is going to go to a whole new level as His increases your hunger, and in the natural you are about to “put your hands to” more than ever before. Your boundary lines HAVE FALLEN in pleasant places and the revelation and greater manifestation of your inheritance in Jesus is about to be seen SIGNIFICANTLY MORE!!!!
