I was driving yesterday when I had a vision of many tree roots that were hidden under the ground. The trees had been cut down below the soil and the grass had grown back over them over time but the roots were still just laying there.
Then I heard the Lord say, “I’m pulling out the roots!” This is the season God is dealing with roots so He can launch you forward. There are many situations you dealt with in the past that have still been hanging over you because the roots are still intact, holding you, chaining you to a season you are no longer in and engaged in a battle you have already fought. But watch as over the next few months God takes an axe to every looming situation that has been stealthily keeping you in limbo. It’s time for a fresh break! It’s time for a fresh slate!
There are spiritual ties being cut to people and places you didn’t even know you were still connected to that God is bringing finality to. Decades of bondage and unresolved injustices against you are being brought to light and being washed and covered in the blood of Jesus. Where you are going is going to require you lose the monkey on your back, the python around your neck, and muzzle from your voice.
This is the clean up you need to break all ties with apathy, confusion, and the internal conflict you have been living in so you can embrace the new roads before you. Don’t let the momentary discomfort stop you from seeing God deliver you from giants you didn’t even know were still taunting you from the sidelines, but watch as the freedom of the Lord comes upon you in ways you have never experienced it! Then in the same place as the roots, God will establish strong foundations and build something new upon it. In the place of former devastations will spring up new movements that carry the fresh wind of the Spirit.
Do it Lord in Jesus name!
“Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees” Matthew 3:10
“Just as I watched over them to uproot and tear down, and to overthrow, destroy and bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and to plant,” declares the LORD” Jeremiah 31:28
