Why does God give us dreams and visions?  Because biblical symbolism causes us to look “beyond the natural” to find out more about what He is doing in the “spiritual” realm in and for us.  Jesus used symbolism to reveal (and conceal) spiritual truths, depending on the spiritual maturity of the individual(s). We must bear witness beyond our own perceptions, for it is possible to frustrate that which God desires to do in us if we cannot “see.”  Biblical symbolism is key to unlocking deeper meaning, and shines new light on God’s plans and purposes… It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. Proverbs 25:2.  While praying, I began to see by Holy Spirit.  I saw a young man, brown-haired and barefoot, grab the arm of one whom, it appeared, he had been looking for. The two greeted, then sat down together on the pavement in the middle of the street to exchange shoes!  Their smiles confirmed that they’d found their fit! Finding the perfect fit (spiritually speaking) can represent a major breakthrough experience!  The Lord began to download…In the Jewish culture, feet represent supreme power and possession, as does the shoes on them. Shoes symbolize our faith and readiness to be of service to God. Shoes are what protect our feet, and feet represent direction or where we are going. The Lord is saying today:  “I am “re-fitting” you for Kingdom advancement, for this is a time of “no-more-business-as-usual”…both in the natural and in the spiritual realms!  Be willing to relinquish that which no longer provides room for spiritual growth.”  Pray and ask God to show you what hinders Kingdom advancement…old mindsets, rebellion, religion (biggie), pride, doubt and unbelief…, etc…!! These things are not a proper fit for where He is taking us right now, in this very moment. Untie yourself from all prejudices and intolerance, for taking a worldly position to repudiate what IS GOD may be the very thing He is trying to use to graduate you!! Please don’t miss this!! And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.  For this comes from the LORD who is THE SPIRIT. 2 Cor. 3:18 ESV (emphasis mine).  True surrender will release long-awaited fulfillment of promise, innovation and greater anointing, BREAKTHROUGH, in the here-and-now!!!  “BLESSING YOU will prove beneficial for My Kingdom,” says the Lord, “therefore, let go to receive.”  The Lord is “resizing” our spiritual capacity, making ready those of us who’s passion is to move beyond where we are, and into a dimension where LIVING in the spiritual realm is the norm!!  Important:  Confirm your allegiance by way of leadership, and consider this…you will only be as anointed and powerful as the level of anointing and power your leader has available to impart to you. Wow, Holy Spirit, thank You!! Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17 ESV .  “I am asking for that which cripples not only your spiritual walk, but your relationship with Me,” says the Lord, “that you would trade it, now, for more depth, height and width in the spiritual realm,”…for I am a consuming fire, a jealous God…” Deut. 4:24 ESV.  Thank you, Yeshua.  “Your breakthrough is waiting on YOU,” says He Who sits on the Throne of Grace. Expect divine appointments, stay prayed up and tuned in, for the Holy Spirit has orchestrated Heavenly connections that will have profound effects on your lives and ministries…if you do not miss it. The Lord is reminding me of this morning’s prayer, initiated by Trisha, lead by John and Lydia…a prime example of how the Lord is linking together, I am hearing, “Spirit-Style!”  (I love You, Yeshua, and your creativity!!!!!)   Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it…?  The Lord is connecting the dots in this season, from point A, the point of promise, to point B, the point of fulfillment….So, don’t be dismayed if you feel out-of-sorts as the Lord is redirecting your steps, for He knows what it will take to get you to fulfillment, as He said, “Business as usual has reached its end, and the only way to secure your promise is to walk this way.”  We are living in exciting times!!! Take us where you want us to go, Lord, that we may “…be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Eph 3:19 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens… Eccl. 3:1.  Blessings in Yeshua!!!  Sherri
