The cloud formation was unreal.. so unreal that my feet were glued to one spot.. This is the fidgety me, mind you! As I kept gazing at the skies with its unique combination of colours – this not in the direction of sunset but rather on the opposite side. I could see a rainbow with my spiritual eyes. Demanding to God that He now needs to bring it to manifestation in the natural, I dragged a chair (not knowing how long this was gonna take), and positioned it so that my eyes didn’t have to leave the area of interest in the skies..
Yes the chatterbox me kept chattering away with her Heavenly Father marvelling at His handiwork as if this was the first time I was seeing a unique scene, thanking God for His love and revelation of His presence and most importantly totally in awe of this increasing heavenly realm touching the earthly realm. Yes… God is speaking much through all these scenes and I know there will be more and more revelations in days to come… I was thanking God for His impartation too as this is not a coincidence and I know He is depositing truth in the spirit.
It wasn’t long before the rainbow did make its grand entrance. This wasn’t the first time this happened to me, where I had seen the rainbow with my spiritual eyes and to just press in to see it manifest revealing it to my natural eyes . Yesterday’s event was even more spectacular in the sense that I had already seen a wider than usual spectrum of a rainbow in full semi circle with a faint second one just over an hour prior to that.
God is encouraging us to keep pressing into all that He has revealed to us in the spiritual realm.. that He will bring about the manifestation into the natural. Keep pressing into Him, praising Him, magnifying His Name and having a heart of gratitude.. that even in the ‘absence’ of the promise not being tangible in the natural, that God has held back for a time and a purpose for our good… He never intends evil . The season of allowing the enemy to hold back that healing, that provision of abundance for His Kingdom, for those broken relationships etc etc.. was a purpose. Whatever the enemy intended for harm, God turns it around for good.
It has been a time for us to deepen our intimacy with Him, delighting in HIM without the distractions that health, wealth, relationships will have to offer. Right now I’m reminded of the parable of the sower that Jesus narrates..
When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” – Matthew 13:19-23
For the seed to produce with much greater yield it has to die to itself.. it has to be deeper in the soil, hidden, not seen, alone… it had to distort its original shape and be made new, sprouting up as a small plant and taking shape as the big tree that then ministers to so many others.
The preparation stage was needed… God also tested us so that like Job we would know whether we were in it for selfish gain or because we were indeed soaked in His love and that was all that matters – whether lack or abundance, our goal was intimacy with Him and to see HIS Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
Keep pressing in reveling in His love, mesmerised by His glory.. and keep remembering the vision in the spiritual realms for it to manifest in the natural. What He has shown you in the spiritual others may not comprehend but you know.. and He is not one to lie, it will come to pass.. The time has come!! He is pleased with you.. The assurance is given through this brilliant rainbow.
