I heard in my Spirit “It’s time to dust off your feet!” A word of closure as we cross over into 2022.
This isn’t a word for 2022 as much as it’s a revealing His desire for us to be unshackled from the season behind us and prepared for what we are crossing over into.
DREAM OF THE OPEN DOORWAY
I have had many dreams of doors in my life but this dream was profoundly to the point and spoke volumes to me. In the dream I saw an open doorway and I was about to step through it when felt a deep pain or a grief hit my heart and so I stopped in my tracks. “What is going on?” I asked myself. Then I heard the words “It’s unfinished business”.
But what is unfinished? Then I began to think of how many personal promises from the last few years have felt UNFINISHED.. so many. The grief hit my heart again. I knew I could not move on until this was dealt with.
Then I looked down at my feet and I saw mud and dirt on them that I didn’t see before. “Wow, that’s a lot of dirt!” I thought to myself very confused that I didn’t see it before. (The new will reveal the old) Then right then and there I knew I needed to remove the mud and dirt. As I did, it was as if I was able to see the witchcraft that had come at me during the last season. The times I was slimed by people and my name was dragged through the mud. The time people flung dirt at me and tried to find dirt on me. In reality it was never people but the spirit of assassination. Then I heard the words of Jesus saying what He said to His disciples;
“If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet” Matthew 10:14
I had been walking with this mud, dirt, and dust for too long and I needed to finally shake it once and for all and move on. So I did. Then I heard a loud instruction. “Forgive them”. So I did, then the dream ended.
DON’T LET DISTRACTION FOLLOW YOU
As I was processing this dream with the Lord and talking through it, I saw an image flash before me of a magician doing a slight-of-hand trick. “What was that?” I asked.
Then I heard, “Distraction has been the game but don’t let it follow you”.
It made sense. 2021 was a year of so much smoke and mirrors and the enemy constantly trying to lure us into fights and situations and false emergencies and fears that were all show. Why? So that we would get exhausted by chasing something that didn’t exist or need our participation, and take our eyes off what we were really called to.
Distraction was sent to get us focused on who was speaking against us. Who didn’t like us. What wasn’t working. What could happen, and what didn’t happen. All the while, we were being tricked into a slight of hand game. Look back and you’ll see this was true. We can’t let distraction follow us.
I pray for next level discernment and wisdom over you right now in Jesus name!
