PREPARE THE HIGHWAY!

“And one has said: “Build up! Build up the road! Prepare the highway! Remove every obstacle from my people’s way.” (Isaiah 57:14)

The other day when I arose from bed I looked down and there on the floor beside my bed was a large centipede! Not really the kind of greeting you want to see first thing in the morning! Centipedes are commonplace here in Hawaii and they are not friendly. As a matter fact they have a very painful bite and often inject paralyzing venom. This unfortunately, I know all too well.

I scrambled around to try and find something to kill it with before it got away. As I was searching I kept an eye on the centipede to make sure it didn’t escape. As I did I noticed something peculiar. The centipede was not moving. There was no movement at all. Even when I approached it, it did not move. I thought to myself, “is it dead?” It did not look dead. It looked very healthy but it was not moving. So I finally found something to kill it with but when I poked at it, it still did not move. I realized, sure enough, it was already dead! This was very odd as I had not sprayed the room and it was not injured in any way. How is it that there is a seemingly healthy yet dead centipede in the middle of my floor? And then I heard the voice of The Lord say,

“I have put to death what was . . .

 SENT-TO-IMPEDE

you!”

I then had the revelation of what I was seeing. This was a prophetic sign from God for what He is doing, not only in my life but also in the lives of many in this hour.

For years the enemy, because of the obstacles that he has sent to impede our way, has thwarted destiny. Centipedes along with spiders and scorpions are symbols of the demonic. I knew that the Lord was killing off demonic blockages in my life. That he was showing me prophetically that he was clearing a way, preparing a highway for destiny!

Some have been battling the same obstacles for years and years. As a result your walk has literally been paralyzed. Perplexed you may have been wondering how in the world you were going to kill off this impediment. As I was starring a the dead centipede wondering how it died I again heard the voice of the Lord, very clearly, say,

“The battle is the Lords”

 Which is from the scripture in 2 Chronicles 20:15,

 “He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

We are in a season where God is simply going to remove the obstacles many have been battling in their own strength for years. Welcome to your,

SEASON OF VICTORY!

The Lord himself is going to do it!

The long season of warfare where Satan has blocked your way,

“For we wanted to come to you–certainly I, Paul, did, again and again–but Satan blocked our way.” (1 Thessalonians 2:18)

 IS OVER!

 It is time to build yourself up. Hallelujah! The Lord has prepared a highway!

There is another reveal that I would like to share with you. Just like I was wondering how the centipede died you may be asking yourself how exactly is the Lord is going to remove the obstacle that you have been battling for so long? Well, I discovered that the name,

Centipede

means

“One hundred legs”

centipede

Yet a centipede does not have one hundred legs. Depending on the species, a centipede can have as few as 15 pairs of legs, or as many as 171 pairs. Centipedes always have an odd number of leg pairs, so they never have exactly 100 legs (because 50 pairs is an even number). A centipede’s name therefore is –

A LIE!

 The way God is going to free you is by causing you to stop believing the lies of the enemy!

I want to encourage you to join me in being expectant today.

Begin to praise and rejoice. God has heard your cry and he is killing off old mindsets. The Lord has prepared a highway. He is removing the obstacles from HIS PEOPLE! It’s time to march on to victory because just like the centipede, the lies that were, sent-to-impede you, are finally being put to death!

LIBERTY! By Joey Rocha

2056_3

 “And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.”

—Leviticus 25:10

In a vision during prayer, I saw the hand of the Lord. He was holding a giant chisel. In His other hand He was wielding a hammer. I saw the chisel positioned directly over the Liberty Bell. Then I watched the hand of the Lord strike the chisel with the hammer and the liberty bell was cracked to the bottom.

I immediately understood the word of the Lord –

LIBERTY!

He is setting the captives free!

 Until this vision I knew very little about the Liberty Bell. In my limited research what I discovered was that The Pennsylvania Assembly had the Liberty Bell made in 1751 to mark the 50-year anniversary of William Penn’s 1701 Charter of Privileges, which served as Pennsylvania’s original Constitution. The liberty bell was created to,

PROCLAIM LIBERTY!

It is a symbol. I love how God uses symbolism to speak to us!

Inscribed on the liberty bell is the scripture from Leviticus –

“And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants.

The Jewish calendar year 5777 or Gregorian calendar year 2017 is a fiftieth year. This is a year of Jubilee! There have been plenty of words on the jubilee year so I won’t expound much on that except to say as a reminder, it is a year to:

Proclaim liberty!

Set captives free!

Break bondages!

Cancel debts!

Heal relationships!

Restore properties!

Gain health!

Restore family!

Establish dreams!

And obtain destiny!

Many of you are aware of this already and have been waiting expectantly for your deliverance. But this word is for a very select group of God’s children who have been seemingly plagued with delay after delay after delay. For some, your heart has grown cold in the waiting. And the enemy has used the very thing that God uses as a blessing, the calendar, to discourage you.

Child of God –

THIS WORD IS FOR YOU!

The word of the Lord is –

Look for the crack!

God is beginning to crack things open! Look for the crack! Focus your eyes on the little openings, the small victories, and seemingly small beginnings. Position yourself under them when you see them. Praise God and activate your faith!

Because just like a crack starts small but gets larger with pressure, God is going to use the small beginnings to ring in your large victory!

Your days of walking in the wilderness are numbered. The dry bones are coming alive and the birth of your Isaac is imminate! It is time to raise your head and your hands in praise because there is a sound resonating throughout the land! It is the sound of the veil of the temple being torn from top to bottom; it is the pitch of God, the note of freedom, the sound of liberty! Do not give up hope. God has not forgotten you. Look for the cracks and align yourself. God loves you!

And just like the Liberty Bell – He was broken for you!

Let that sound resonate through your spirit and build up your faith! As you do, you will begin to see the manifestation of all that he has promised you. God is going to finish what he started beginning . . .

THIS YEAR!

On a side note, I find it mysteriously interesting that although there are many theories, experts don’t really know how the recast bell got its now-famous crack. The crack is a big subject of debate among historians. However this I do know. The word of the Lord is sure. You can expect liberty this year beloved!

Because the meaning of the vision . . .

is clear as a bell!

IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE By Joey Rocha

joeyrochaframe2

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

Jesus

John 14:2

 I had a dream . . .

 I was hanging out with Elvis. He was alive and retired. And he was showing me all of his different houses. They were all mansions!

In the dream I was perplexed that Elvis was alive. I was awestruck at the splendor of the mansions. No two were alike. But I actually felt small and insignificant because he had such things. That is until Holy Spirit revealed to me the interpretation of the dream –

THE KING IS ALIVE!

Was the first revelation.

After I realized He was the Lord, I was curious as to why He was retired? And this is what the Lord said,

“My child, can you not see? You are the mansion! You are my dwelling place. And all the other mansions are the rest of my children. My work is finished.”

Wow!

The beauty and splendor of the mansions I saw were beyond what I can describe. And when I received that revelation my feeling of insignificance turned to confidence because I had an identity revelation of who God had created me to be! I saw the magnificence of His finished work.

Maybe you, like me, have been going through a long season of wondering in the wilderness wondering if this is all going to be worth it or if and when your long suffering will ever come to an end. Well, be encouraged my friends,

“I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”

Philippians 1:6

You can enter into confidence today with full assurance that He is going to finish what He started and that the end result is going to be beyond description because –

You are worth it!

 You know it is amazing to me what you discover when you yield yourself to the Holy Spirit’s leading. Jeremiah 33:3 reads:

“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

 When I was seeking the interpretation of the dream and looking up the title verse, John 14:2 The first thing that popped up on Google was a song from – Elvis Presley! And the title is, you guessed it –

IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE

In my father’s house are many mansions

If it were not true he would have told me so

He has gone away to live in that bright city

He’s preparing me a mansion there I know

Jesus died upon the cross to bear my sorrow

Freely died that souls like you might have new life

But I know that soon there’ll come a bright tomorrow

When the world will all be free from sin and strife

(Do not shun the saviors love, from up in glory)

(Or you won’t be there to sing the gospel story)

In my father’s house are many mansions

If you’re true then to this land you’ll surely go

Rooted in Love

IMG_2846

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:14-19

My sister lives in New England. Every morning she walks her dog in the woods by her home. One morning while on her walk, she was talking with God about some troubling circumstances. As she prayed she noticed a heart shape image formed on a root of a tree in the ground. As she looked at the image she heard the Lord say,

“Stay rooted in love!”

She took a picture of it, which is the picture you see here.

We live in troubling times. Even with the positive changes we have seen lately: our world, our country, our families and even our own souls seem troubled. We see a world desperately crying out for love, a country deeply divided, families in chaos and souls afflicted with an ongoing war between flesh and spirit. We are indeed, hard pressed on every side. Our problems and our difficulties with other people seem to all stem from a lack of love. The word even says that in the end times,

“because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold” (Matthew 12:24)

So what is the solution? How do we navigate such times? How do we deal with difficult people and troubling circumstances? Well the answer is always – love. For the bible tells us that –

“Love never fails.”

(1 Corinthians 13:8)

 Yet we seem to consistently fail in our loving. Why is that? Why at times does it seem so hard to love?

I believe my sister received a revelation on how to navigate these times. You see there are really only two choices. We can choose God and form a love root or we can choose self and form a bitter root.

The fruit of the tree reveals its root.

 We must be deeply rooted in love. This may sound strange but the truth is we are not here to – learn how to love. We are here to manifest love. In order to do that, we must step into our identity as Sons and Daughters of God. Because

God is love.

So when we live from who we really in are God and draw from the root we will manifest love effortlessly! The key is to stay rooted in love! We must not strive to love. Instead we must be filled with the fullness of God. By doing so we actually become love!

When we behold Him we become like Him. You are from the Father from whom every family is named! You are His child. That my friend is who you really are! If you are His child that means you carry all His characteristics, you are love! The devil in contrast carries a bitter root against God. That is why the Pharisee’s where never able to love, because they were the children of their Father (John 8:44). However you don’t need to strive to love because you are a child of your Father God and love is already the fruit of your root! That’s why we must draw strength and power through his Spirit from our inner being. Love is not something that’s contrived from the outside. Love is an inside job! It comes from the root!

Sometimes on our walk with God, like my sister on her walk in the woods, we need to be reminded of who we really are. It’s not what we do, it’s who we are that matters! So I want to encourage you, the next time you face a difficult person or troubling circumstance, dig deep into the well that is already there. You will find ample supply. It’s your inheritance! Love never fails.

The heart of God is in the root, so simply remain,

Rooted in Love ~

THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY! By Joey Rocha

joeyrochaframe2

“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison”  2 Corinthians 4:17

When I go to church I always ask the Lord to lead me to the hurting people in the room. During worship as I was scanning the room the Lord showed me a man and as soon as I saw him I convulsed in pain. I then went into a vision . . .

I saw a huge railroad car sitting on the tracks. It wasn’t moving. It was just sitting on the tracks. There was a heavy fog around it. I sensed that the man had a heavy weight he was bearing that seemed almost like oppression. I could see that this person had a dream and a vision, a desire from God, but was unable to move on it. There was something heavy that was weighing him down. I could literally feel his frustration. It reminded me of my own struggles and I shed a tear as I continued to watch. As I gazed at the man and the vision I suddenly saw something burst through the fog. It was a huge locomotive barreling down the track at full speed! And God spoke this word to me, He said . . .

“The heaviness that he feels is not of the enemy. It is the weight of my glory that is upon his life!”

I knew that I had to speak this word into his life. As I was about to go to him the Lord spoke again and said . . .

“Speak the word openly to the entire congregation for this is a corporate word that I am doing in many!”

He also told me that if I spoke it openly the Pastor would preach on it!

So I did.

And he did!

I’m sharing the word here with you as well. I believe this is true of what the Lord is doing in many today.

Be blessed . . .

You have been sensing a heaviness upon you life and it feels like a weight pulling you down. You have a God given dream and vision but every time you try to move forward it feels to heavy to move. So heavy at times that you’ve thought about giving up on the dream. You have been thinking that this heaviness is an attack of the enemy. But it is not. The heaviness you have been experiencing is not from the enemy.

 It is the, Weight of His Glory that is upon your life!

 You have a high call from God. And because of the heaviness of the calling it has been difficult to begin to move in it. Don’t be discouraged and don’t give up! As you feed the fire-of-desire the coals of his presence the furnace will begin to burn. As it does, the wheels will begin to turn. Slowly at first because of the massive weight of his glory you are carrying. Continue in faith believing that this desire is of God and continue feeding on the fire of His word. As you do, this train will begin moving along the track that He has placed you on and you will reach an acceleration that will clear the fog. Once you are up to speed there will be no stopping you – for this train cannot stop on a dime! For the same heaviness that seemed to be pulling you down is the very Weight of His Glory that will propel you forward. Do not give up! You are on the right track!

Well it turns out that the Pastor grew up in the Midwest by a railroad station. He began to tell the story about how as kids they would watch the trains come and go. They would see huge railroad trains go on for what seemed like miles. And as kids they wondered how they could ever move. They looked so heavy!

locomotive

They would watch as the Conductor would start the locomotives. Everything seem so slow at first. There would be a small puff of smoke from the smoke stack, then a little steam. They would hear a loud clanking noise as the coupling rods began to jerk. They would jerk then stop, jerk then stop until finally the wheels on the train would gradually begin to turn. But the wheels would just spin in place and then they would stop again. This seemed like it went on forever until finally the wheels would catch! And the locomotive would begin to slowly move forward. They could hear all the clanging sounds of from the weight of the cars being pulled together.

Then the train would finally start to move down the track. So slow at first that the kids would simply walk along side the train. It was easy. As the Trainmen kept feeding the fire the train would gradually pick up speed and they would have to walk faster. Soon they would hear the rumble of all the wheels turning, the sound of the steam hissing and train whistle blowing which meant the train was getting up to speed. They would have to run to keep up. But it didn’t last long as eventually the momentum from the weight would propel the train and they couldn’t keep up at all. What was once just a huge heavy weight sitting on a track was now somebody’s ride into the their tomorrow! It was glorious to watch!

There is something else that the Pastor said that I would like to share. It’s about that dream and vision God gave you to carry. You know, that desire of your heart. Well it turns out that the word desire means “of-the-sire” or “of the Father” in other words that very dream and vision you long for originates from God himself! Now wonder it’s so heavy!

Don’t give up! You are carrying a God given dream! A precious load that is of the Father! And although it seems weighty at first, remember, that is the very weight that will be the momentum to carry you down the track!

As I’m writing this I see the train from the third Back to the Future movie! Better hold on tight! Because the Weight of His Glory is about to catapult you . . .

Into your future!

A GREAT THAW! By Joey Rocha

tear

He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow. (Psalm 147:18)

In a vision while in prayer . . .

I saw a great thaw.

It was winter and all the trees where covered with ice. The landscape was covered in snow, like wool, it was barren and it was very cold. As I gazed upon this picture of winter suddenly a gentle breeze began to stir through the trees. I could see beads of water forming from the ice. Soon drops of water began to fall from the trees. Everything began to thaw. I realized that this cold, barren season was coming to an end. As I continued to gaze upon the vision, a revelation unfolded, and I deeply understood that the drops falling from the trees where not made of water at all – they where the tear drops of the Saints who had endured a long winter season.

Oh what a wonderful time we are entering my friends! God has revealed that the cold winter season that so many have endured is finally coming to an end. In the natural it is only January but I suspect that for some the thaw has already begun. God has heard your cry and captured your tears. For He has sent His word to melt the ice and His Spirit to stir up the breezes. Be encouraged –

The living waters of life are about to flow again!

THE LION’S LICK! By Joey Rocha

lion-04

“And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” (Revelation 5:5)

I would like to share part of a dream that I had. I only share part because I believe the first part of the dream was personal to me. However I feel led to share the second part as way of encouragement to those that are seeking God’s . . .

FAVOR.

In the dream . . .

I saw myself on a journey. As I was walking along suddenly this giant ape like creature appeared and was blocking my path. The creature was large, skinny and decrepit looking. It was foaming at the mouth and it’s intentions where obvious – to block my way.

As I stood there somewhat dumbfounded contemplating what to do, behold a Lion appeared! The Lion belted out one load roar and the ape creature vanished. That alone would have been enough but it’s what happened next that I would like to impart –

The Lion then turned to me and licked my face!

For many believers the journey, like my own, has been difficult. Many have been plagued with obstacles along the way. So much so that weariness has set in. Sometimes it seems like we can be our own worse enemy when it comes to faith in who God says we really are. I believe we are entering into a season of God’s favor for all those who have remained despite the setbacks and obstacles and even unbelief along the way.

The opening scripture from revelation declares the truth that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has made a way where there was no way.

When the Lion licked my face in the dream I immediately felt something lift from me, replaced by – the favor of God. It was a lick of affection, like a Father hugging and protecting his child. Almost as if God was smiling at me!

GOD WANTS TO IMPART FAVOR!

As I was praying about the dream I actually saw what the obstacles were that others were facing. I could see people stuck along the way and as I looked more closely I saw what looked to be stamps on peoples heads. The obstacles that were blocking their way where all kinds of false labels representing false identities that had been stamped on their foreheads!

I saw labels like: failure, insecurity, freak, disabled, diseased, abandoned, worthless and many more! It was these labels that were the obstacles stopping the children of God from continuing on their journey. The creature along the way wasn’t the obstacle but only the lie that was reinforcing what the label was already saying! They couldn’t free themselves from the labels because they believed the lie. They were literally – stuck. And so was I!

Have you ever tried to remove a stamp from an envelope once it has been sealed? It is next to impossible! But fear not. I have some good news! The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered! He can remove the seal!

I did a bit of research on a lions lick. What I discovered is amazing . . . because God is amazing.

First,

The lions tongue is extremely rough. The reason a lion’s tongue is rough is because it is covered in organic spines called papillae. These papillae are rougher than sandpaper and can scrape flesh off a human being with ease! For lions, getting all the nutrition they can from the carcass is critical. The papillae on lions’ tongues let’s them make the most of their kills by scraping off the excess meat that would otherwise go to waste. In other words a lion can scrape off the meat from a bone with a lick of its tongue!!

So if that is the case. How much more can the LION OF THE TRIBE JUDAH scrape off a label that has been stamped on you!

Second,

After feeding a lions habit is to lick each other. It is referred to as social licking. Lions cannot clean their own head and have limited ability to clean other parts of their body because they are not particularly flexible.  After feeding lions often lick their pride mates to remove blood and clean wounds. Licking is also common after rain to help dry out the coat of another lion.  Social licking helps to reinforce social bonds and in combination with head rubbing actually produces close functional relationships within the pride!

What I found was something that I believe is sorely missing in the church today . . .

Lions lick each other’s wounds!

I believe we would see a lot more functional relationships and unity within the body of Christ if we would simply learn from lion’s pride. (Romans 12:15, Galatians 6:2, 1 Corinthians 12:26)

Nuff said.

God has appeared along the way because He is going to make sure that his children reach their destiny knowing who they are and who’s authority they carry.

You see it is the sound of the Lions roar that dispels the lies of the enemy but it is with the lick of his favor that identity is revealed. The pinnacle of lassitude descends in deference to the Lions might. He is bent on seeing us finish the journey strong! And no one will snatch them from his hand! (John 10:28)

So hear the roar of his prophetic word!

If the enemy, the church, your family or anybody else has stamped you with a label of false identity then it is time to . . .

Receive the Lion’s lick!

Sin removed! Shame removed! Guilt removed! Offense removed! Condemnation removed! Bulling removed! Worthlessness removed! Lack removed! Insecurity removed! Intimidation removed! Hopelessness removed! Poverty removed! Doubt removed! Self Pity removed! Victim removed! Addicted removed! Failure removed! Abandonment removed! Sickness removed! Disabled removed! And any other label that comes against the word of God!

It is time to weep no more; beloved, for the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David has conquered!

And he is about to lick open the scroll of your life that has been sealed! The Lion has appeared to remove the obstacle of false identity and reveal to you who you really are. Identity revelation will clear the way for the remainder of your journey. And because you now know who’s you are, you will carry a greater authority!

So receive GOD’S FAVOR today! And remember, there is no label that has been stuck on you strong enough to withstand . . .

The Lions Lick!

PEN THE PROMISES! by Joey Rocha

bow5

Prophetic art by Joey Rocha

“Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God. (Isaiah 66:9)

I had a dream . . .

I was at my desk writing with a pen. As I was writing I noticed that the ink coming out of the pen was rainbow colored!

When I sought the Lord he said,

“I want you to PEN THE PROMISES.”

When we have been in a long season of waiting for something it is easy to become discouraged. One of the best ways to navigate these times is to write or speak the promises of God.

God has not forgotten his promises to us. He uses them as faith builders. There is something about writing down and speaking the promises that helps us to believe them which leads to birthing them.

I looked up the definition of the word promise –

a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.

As I read the definition it dawned on me that God has already,

PENNED HIS PROMISES for us!

Like a good Father he is teaching his children to do what he is doing!

“Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” (John 5:19)

God wants us to actively participate in what he is doing. By penning the promises he has written we are partnering with him to activate them!

So if you are feeling discouraged in the waiting – pen the promises. Write them down with a pen or type them out. In doing so it will serve as a declaration of activation.

Penning the promises is a doubt killer!

Here are a few that I wrote down –

“It is not good for man to be alone, I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18)

“and my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

“take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)

“being confident about this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

They need not be just scripture. Write down the personal promises and dreams that God has given you as well. Meditate on them and delight in the Lord, for in doing so he has promised to give us the desires of our hearts.

By penning the promises you are actively participating with God, building your faith, and declaring that he will do exactly what he said he would. Promise is fuel for the soul that leads to destiny.

“It will be like a woman suffering the pains of labor. When her child is born, her anguish gives way to joy because she has brought a new baby into the world.” (John 16:21)

God will surely bring to delivery everything that he is birthing. And he will bring to pass everything that he has promised.

So if you find yourself drenched in the storm of waiting, begin to pen the promises!  Just as joy comes after the birth, you can be assured that after the rain comes . . .

the rainbow!

BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE TO FLY! by Joey Rocha

b

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)

In a vision I saw a beautiful butterfly. The butterfly was sitting on a branch fluttering it’s wings but it was not flying. As I pondered the butterfly the Lord spoke to me and said,

“there are many who have been set free but are not yet flying!”

Did you know that a butterfly cannot fly in cold temperatures? Butterflies need a body temperature of 85ºF to fly! When air temperatures range between 82º-100ºF, butterflies can fly with ease. But Butterflies cannot regulate their own body temperatures. So on cooler days a butterfly has to warm up its wing muscles, either be fluttering or by basking in the sun!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

As it is with the butterfly so it is with the new creation. We have been set free but sometimes find ourselves sitting on a branch rather than taking flight. Wondering why it seems so difficult to fly. It is because we have yet to learn that in order to take flight we must first warm up our wings by spending time –

BASKING IN THE SON!

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

The new creation cannot fly on it’s own. Just as the branch cannot survive apart from the vine! So if you find yourself a flutter, wondering why, in your newly found freedom, it seems so difficult to fly. Simply stop trying so hard. Rest on the branch and let the warmth of the Son strengthen your wings. Soon you will be up to temperature taking flight for all to see –

the new creation you where born to be!
