SING YOUR WAY UP AND OUT!
In worship I saw what looked like a large wall directly in front of me- I looked around and saw no way past the wall. Then I noticed like a little ladder of praise and thanks- each rung was a song of praise and thanks to the Lord! ‘Sing your way up and out!’ He said. So I began to sing and step up and up and up until I reached the top and I realized it wasn’t a wall but a very large step- and it opened out into a broad field. I looked down and saw a swarm of flies on the step below where I had just come from- ‘You have risen above the lies of the enemy in praise and now you are in an open field! It is a field of dreams!
The Lord has been saying to me for a while ‘Welcome to the season of skipping through the field of your dreams!’ But it had not felt like I was skipping! It felt like I had been swatting flies! I believe this vision was a prophetic key to stepping up and out of the lies and into the promise!
These two psalms came immediately to mind:
My heart, O God, is quiet and confident all because of you. Now I can sing my song with passionate praises! Awake o my soul, with the music of his splendor. Arise my soul and sing his praises! I will awaken the dawn with my worship, greeting the daybreak with my songs of light! Psalm 108:1-2
He stooped down to lift me out of danger from the desolate pit I was in, out of the muddy mess I had fallen into. Now he’s lifted me up into a firm secure place and steadied me while I walk along his ascending path. A new song for a new day rises up in me every time I think of how he breaks through for me! Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until everyone hears how God has set me free! Many will see his miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with him! Psalm 40:2-3
So sing those songs friends- awaken your souls with the songs of His splendor! Give praise and thanks as you recount the ways he has broken through for you in the past! REMEMBER and sing- REMEMBER and sing! And the lyrics of your praise will become an access way into the higher ground, a prophetic road map for the breakthrough to come!
Blessing after blessing comes for those who live and trust the Lord. They will not fall away, for they refuse to listen to the lies of the proud! Psalm 40:4
