Will You Dive today?
I was on my weekly Monday Morning Manna-Festation Prayer Broadcast this morning and the Lord lead me to give a word regarding seeking Him. He placed on my heart that many were afraid to go deeper in Him to where He was actually calling them. He told me to tell the people not to be afraid to “Dive” in Him. To dive into His spirit. As a diver/swimmer dives off of the diving board unafraid, do not be afraid to dive into the presence of God. Into the things of God. Into the New that He is taking you into.
The enemy wants to put fear into the lives of many so that they will not step out and dive into God fully and faithfully. But The Lord caused me to speak to the people and say “A diver dives with assurance knowing that the water’s job is not to hurt him/her so there’s no need to be afraid. A diver/swimmer knows that when they dive into the water they are working with the water. They know that as a diver/swimmer you have to at some point get off of the diving board and into the water to actually be deemed successful as a diver and swimmer.
The Lord also had me liken it to an alligator. An alligator can operate on land but eventually has to go into the water. There are many animals which have been created this way. They have to get into the water to operate as they were created and called to operate. They dive!
Choose to dive and Swim
This applies to you as well! Are you abiding in the water? Has fear kept you miles high stuck on a diving board afraid to launch into the deep? In scripture it talks about being washed by the water of the word of God (Eph 5:26). To be born of water (Jn 3:5). We must be in the water of God, not afraid of it. The water is to help us, keep us operating effectively, renew us even more and to refresh us to say the least. It is in the water where any rubbish from the earth that may have attached to you can be washed away. What’s stopping you from diving into the water? What's stopping you from diving into the perfect will of God for your life? Honestly the best place to be is totally submerged in the water. Diving head first INTO the Holy Spirit. Not just having Him but now being IN Him.
You’re a swimmer/diver in the spirit. You were created to fearlessly dive into God. No regrets, no plan B’s. Even if you think you can’t swim, remember the water helps guide the swimmer. Will you dive head first into the water today?
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
