It is time for you to set sail!
In sailing, a yard is a spar on the mast from which sails are set. It is time to put your yards in place. What is the vision that the Lord has asked you to write and make plain? What is the vision in your heart that you know is time to be fulfilled?
Well, it is time to raise your sails because a Northeaster wind from the Lord is coming. When it comes you will declare, “This is the wind I wanted and now I have it!”
God has given you plans and ideas. Now it is time to move forward with action and an expectation that He who has spoken will perform that which He said would come to pass through you.
When you raise your sails on a boat you are lifting up your expectation. You are letting the wind know you are ready to move forward with it.
Without a sail, you will not go far if you move at all. We must have an expectation of God in order to move forward. We must believe that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. We must believe that because we are His sheep and we hear His voice. When we respond to His voice, we must believe that He will be the wind beneath our wings that will help us to accomplish what we heard in prayer.
Raising your expectation in God means that you will no longer strive within yourself to move forward but you will seek His face first and trust the direction you receive in His presence. You will move from the guessing room to the dressing room of God. It is here that He will clothe you and cover you with direction. It is the secret place.
I must prophesy and proclaim what I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying,
“Your foundation must be strong and I must be at the center of your life. I have given you the first steps and now you must be ready to move with Me without hindrance. I AM sending a wind that will push you forward. Now is the time to come behind the veil and join Me in the secret place. The secret place is where your worship comes up before Me and your heart pours out all of its concerns. This is the place where I pour back into your heart. It is here that I teach you how to guard your heart because it guides the course of your life. Everything I pour into your heart will flow out of it in your daily life. I need you to be an unhindered vessel. I cannot flow through clogged spiritual arteries. Release doubt, fear worry, anxiety, unforgiveness, bitterness and hurt. Lay prostrate before me and spend time in perpendicular praise. I will bring out your true identity to you in plain sight. You will be able to see who I have called you to be. This will not be a reflection of your history but watch as I prepare you for destiny. Take hold of Me and I will blow the winds that will push you forward. Lift up your anchor. You cannot stay grounded. It is time to take new ground! It is time to set your sails! It is time to set your sails!”
Raise your expectations. Raise them high! Expect to see the hand of the Lord move on your behalf. Without expectation and faith in God, you will be like a docked boat.
