Back in the Saddle
IF A PICTURE PAINTS A 1000 words, then I want to paint a picture of HOPE for you! I have been seeing many prophetic signs of the Lord’s promises, and I know these signs and wonders are not just for me! The Wonder of Wonders, El-Shaddai, our Glorious God who does for us what we cannot do, is on the move. I have heard the voice of the Father declaring to satan: “ENOUGH”!
The warfare has been so intense for the past few years. The sifting and shaking has shaken many of us to the core. But, knowing Jesus is always interceding for us and as we cry out for our Father’s help, He draws us to a deeper place of trust. Even when we want to quit, the Lord says, “Hold onto Me!”
As I was preparing to preach recently, I wanted to worship to the song Oceans once again. This song has been an anchor of HOPE! As I worshiped, the YouTube video got stuck on 1:11. Oh my, it would not start again and I have played this at least 50 times in the past couple of months. I know what 1:11 means to me, and I knew the Father was allowing this sing to get me to wonder and HOPE in His promise again! The first promise I have been praying for over two years is:
Deuteronomy 1:11 NAS
“May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are and bless you, just as He has promised you!”
He gave me these promises as fresh oil from His word that morning! Let each of these pour fresh oil into the lampstand of your heart!
Ephesians 1:11 MSG
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living…”
Ephesians 1:11 NAS
“…also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will…”
Colossians 1:11 MSG
“We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul – not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy…”
Joshua 1:11 NAS
“Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you are to cross this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you, to possess it.’”
HOPE IN THE PROMISES OF GOD! Believe His promises and Receive your inheritance! Praise His Name and let an attitude of gratitude open the gates of heaven, as we worship our loving Father! Through the power of HOPE, He is bringing His children into overflowing JOY!
The Father once again spoke to me through a hot air balloon! He reminded me of the Intrepid Hot Air Balloon.
A hot air balloon consists of a bag called the envelope that is capable of containing heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket (in some long-distance or high-altitude balloons, a capsule), which carries passengers and (usually) a source of heat, in most cases an open flame. The heated air inside the envelope makes it buoyant since it has a lower density than the relatively cold air outside the envelope. The Lord gave me the word Buoyancy at the beginning of April.
1. the power to float or rise in a fluid; relative lightness.
2. the power of supporting a body so that it floats; upward pressure exerted by the fluid in which a body is immersed.
3. lightness or resilience of spirit; cheerfulness. (online dictionary)
Dunamis power of Holy Spirit gives us buoyancy! He is the fire that fills us so we can go higher!
HOPE FLOATS, it takes us higher! Christ in us THE HOPE OF GLORY is taking us higher into the heavenlies of grace to see from His point of view! It looks better up here! He has all things in His hands from the beginning to the end!
The harvest fields are calling and I hear the Father saying, “Get back in the saddle again.” It is time to ride into the hi-ways and bi-ways with Him and see who is awakened to His call. I have enjoyed a time of contemplation, rest, renewal and realigning. Now, it is time to answer My Beloved! May we all respond like the Shulamite Bride does in Song of Solomon 7:10-12 (TPT):
Now I know that I am filled with my Beloved
And all His desires are fulfilled in me!
Come away my Lover
Come with me to the far away fields
To those who need us most.
We will run away together
To the forgotten places
And show them redeeming love.
Let us arise and run
To the vineyards of Your people
To see if the budding vines of love
Are now in full bloom!
We will see if their passion
Is awakened toward You—
There I will display my love for You!
Getting back in the saddle means to start doing again what you had stopped doing. Yes it is that time! HOPE empowers us to get moving again! My friend Diana sent this to me:
May Abba’s wrap-around presence give you the power of HOPE, so that you get in the saddle and ride with the Lord! Ride with Him in glory, as He leads your intercession! Ride with Him in faith as He sends your seed into the harvest! Ride with Him in Love each and every day, as you encounter the awakened ones on your path! Get back in the saddle of Joy, as His Hope Overcomes and His Presence Empowers you!
In Abba’s HOPE,
Tracee Anne Loosle
PS – When it stopped at 1:11, it was the line : For I am Yours and You are mine. If you’re interested in viewing the video for yourself, please click the link below.
