Jump Off the Merry-Go-Round!

 

I saw the scene from the Mary Poppins movie where she is on the
merry-go-round. She is sitting on the horse and the ride is going around
and around. Suddenly she hops off and starts flying in the air on the
horse. Dick and the two children automatically started to follow her. They
all end up on a race course where there is a number of horses racing.
The jockeys on the horses were racing in their own strength trying to win
the trophy and get first place as fast as they could! Suddenly, Mary
Poppins appears flying above them, and as the wind is carrying her, she
ends up at the finish line before anyone else.

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They
will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow
weary, they will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31).”

The Lord says,
It is time to get off the merry-go-round and allow the winds of My Spirit to
captivate you into freedom, liberty and rest. I am decreeing that it is your
day to move out of the “flesh” and into the “Spirit.”

“LET GO AND ALLOW ME TO SIT ON THE THRONE OF YOUR
HEART .”

You have been created to live in the “Spirit” and not in the system
created by man that only keeps you going around in circles. Many are
weary, and tired because they are trying to build in the flesh. This system is
focused on “self effort” through our own reasoning, through our own
strength, just like the horses that were running on the race course. They
were trying in their own strength to win the race . They were pushing
themselves to achieve great heights to be the one who gets the trophy
at the end of the race. Mary Poppins, however, was flying above with
ease in the current of the wind and was able to reach the finish line
before anyone else. She took the ground and was able to win with very
minimal effort.

It is the sign that you have been born from above just as I spoke to
Nicodemus in the book of John:
What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is
spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born from
above. The wind blows wherever it wishes, and you hear the sound
of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going.
So it is with everyone who is born from above.

To live in the Spirit means to trust me in the process. I am in charge of
your sanctification, I am in charge of your purification, I am in charge of
escorting you through the doors of opportunity that I have assigned for
you. Your position is one of abiding in Me and to enter My rest for in this
way you shall soar in My Spirit and win the race set before you.

I AM THE SEAT OF REST, a place of freedom, trust and ease.
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God: for he who has
entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from
His (Hebrews 4:9-10).”

In this place you will grow in intimacy, hearing My voice and feeling the
prompting of My Spirit giving instructions, escorting you into new levels,
new heights, new revelation, new experiences and new levels of
freedom. You will walk through the transformation process with the
strength of My ability in you and produce fruit that My Father may be
glorified. He is the gardener! Not you!

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. Every branch in
Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that
bears fruit, He trims so that it may bear more fruit. You are already
clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I
will abide in you. The branch cannot itself produce fruit, unless it
abides on the vine. Likewise, you cannot produce fruit unless you
abide in Me.”  John 15

Jump off the merry-go-around , Let go, and let Me! A love gift from Me to
you, a gift of “Abiding”, a gift of “Rest”, a gift of “Intimacy”, a gift of
“Freedom”….

All honor, All Glory
to Our Abba, to Our King and to Ruach Hakodesh,
the Holy Spirit of wisdom, truth and teacher.
