Over the past few days I keep hearing the words over and over “It’s time to jump” and I saw many of God’s people and they were standing on the edge of a cliff. Many were waiting for ‘direction’, many were at about to step into new assignments, many were were receiving downloads from Papa’s heart and He was calling them to step out in faith.
As I looked at each person on the edge of the cliff there were TWO things in common.
There was a great level of feeling ‘overwhelmed’ and ‘under pressure’ by these ones, and the second thing was ALL of them required a HUGE JUMP off the cliff. The time to a HUGE leap of faith. There were risks ALL AROUND but the Lord was calling the people of God to JUMP OFF into HIs arms in a level of trust they had not known before.
Many were struggling with fear and anxiety because of the level the the Lord was asking them to “LET GO” in. I also saw that “WAYS” that they moved in, in the previous seasons, the way they did things before, were not working anymore. The Lord was teaching them a new way, and this new way required a DEEP LEVEL of trust!!! The Lord was leading His people into the “NEW” and the “NEW” can be scary because it’s territory that many have not walked in before. There are pioneer trails being formed AS the people of God JUMP off the CLIFF OF COMFORT and freefall into His arms.
The thing I paid particular attention to was these faith jumps were things that were bigger than anything they had ever faced and in the natural these new levels of favour, opportunities, faith steps, geographical moves, new assignments, things the Lord was asking them to do looked SO overwhelming and doubt and fear was surrounding BUT these things were really taking the people of God from places that were “comfortable” in the last season and asking them to move into an area where there is a deep trust being birthed in the revelation of their need of Him.
Even though what was before many of God’s people seemed HUGE, it seemed OVERWHELMING, it seemed TERRIFYING to JUMP, these areas were actually the areas where many of God’s people would see the greatest manifestation of the power of God in their lives and through their lives. The ‘outcome’ of the JUMP is not known, but jumping deeper into what He is calling you to do is the most glorious and safe place. These very areas that God was calling many of His people to jump into, even though the jump was scary, there was DOUBLE PORTION blessing, anointing and favour waiting on the otherwise of the JUMP.
I kept hearing Him say over and over “I will NOT fail you, I will NOT fail you, everything will be okay, I will NOT fail you.”
It’s time to JUMP! The jump may seem terrifying but as you jump led by His Spirit, you will find LIFE in the JUMP! You will find JOY in the jump, you will find PEACE in the jump. There is MORE PEACE and JOY in the jump of FAITH He is asking you to do, than staying on the cliff of comfort that ‘feels comfortable’. The Lord is going to send the people around you that are going to champion you, stand with you, encourage you and provide resources. It may FEEL like you are jumping alone, but you are not. The Lord is there with you IN the JUMP and He is there waiting to CATCH YOU after you JUMP and He is rallying other troops to come and stand with you. Rejoice! This JUMP is actually FOR YOUR GOOD and leading you to greater intimacy with Him, breakthrough and promotion in the Spirit.
