Strap On Your Waders

The picture you’re looking at is not one of those web-bought photos I usually pull out come blog time. It’s the real deal. Taken a few weeks ago during one of our Sunday Celebrations. After our worship time, a wonderful young woman named Annie discovered that her jeans were soaking wet, from mid-calf down. Check it out. She sure did. Looked for whatever could cause enough water to soak her pants like this. Didn’t find a thing. Nothing else was wet around her. Not the floor. Not the chair. Not her young daughter who’d been playing at her feet.

So what happened? Why the wet pants? All I can come up with is the stream of water that flowed from the Temple in Ezekiel’s vision. (See chapter 47.) The one that trickled out from under the door, growing deeper and deeper, from ankle-high to knee-high to waist-high to too-high. The one that became a mighty river with trees along its banks – trees with leaves that “will not wither” and fruit that “will not fail.” The one we sought God for in our pre-service prayer meeting.

I believe Annie’s soaked pants is a prophetic picture of what God has in store for us, as a church, in 2017. The river of His presence flowing in us, around us, and through us in greater measure than we’ve ever experienced before. Growing deeper and deeper. From ankle-high (think Annie) to knee-high to waist-high to overwhelming-high.

This river of revival is our great passion, and we can’t wait to see it overflow its banks during the coming year.

If this is something you and your church desire, please feel free to plug into this prophetic promise from God. It’s yours for the taking. Just strap on your waders and believe with us for a mighty flood of His glory during 2017. It’s time for revival.

By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.” (Ezekiel 47:12)
