NEW SHOES; IT’S TIME TO RUNNN!
Updated: Apr 12
New season, new wineskin, new shoes!
It’s time to runnnnn!
I hear in my spirit, “Ready, Set, Gooooo!” as the shot of a gun goes off!
The time is quickly coming and for many it is now upon you when you will run and not be weary. You will walk and not faint! The pain of the past season in your walk will fade away very quickly as you put on your new running shoes. You are coming into a season of running and walking with joy and ease and you will do it with others!
You are coming into a season of running with your tribe! The ones that God destined you to run with. This is a company that is like hearted, like minded, like focused and are like family.
You have been obedient and have waited a long time for this— to find your people and be able to fulfill the call on your life with others for the glory of God.
Can you feel it?
Can you smell it?
It's like the feeling and smell of a spring rain! It's fresh, it's new but yet it feels and smells like 'home'. A place of belonging. A place of purpose. A place of laughter and comfort.
It’s the new wine that’s being poured out!
It is a place of VICTORY!
The load you carried will be no more.
The pain and ache in your feet from your walk will be no more. The squeezing and the pressure will now be released. You will not run alone anymore. You will not carry alone anymore. The Lord has corrected and directed your path into new fields of favor with new shoes on! You will walk in great authority and power running the distance by faith!
As you go, I can see the clearing coming! You have waited to see the promise on the horizon. It’s coming!
I declare all fog is lifting. I declare all the distractions are lifting. You will even feel it in your body, a lightness will return as the spirit of heaviness flees! I see scales and thick mucus coming off your eyes so you can see. The enemy has tried to bind you and blind you with his schemes to distract you with insults, offenses, systems and programs but you have not been ignorant to his strategies.
You have gained wisdom and keen seeing even in the blindness of the past seasons where the enemy tried to block your view and sabotage your call.
The chains are falling OFF.
The bit and bridle of the enemy OFF!
The old shoes OFF!
The burdens of others OFF!!
OFF I SAY!
You will receive the yoke and burden of Jesus as you run in your new shoes and are fueled with the new wine!
This is the race you’ve been waiting for! This is the one you have trained for and the Lord has prepared you for!
I hear in my Spirit, “Ready, Set, Gooooo!” As the shot of a gun goes off to launch you!
OFF the starting block YOU GO!!
The Lord is pleased with you. You have not given into the enemy or fainted in your flesh!
You have been submitted to His teachings. You have sat with Him. You have let Him into those areas of your heart you once protected.
He has searched you and He knows you! He has seen your path, the pain, the betrayals, the control, and the disappointments but now he says, “Enough!”
The rigorous training has ended and the race must now begin.
GO, DO, RUN, BUILD!
Do it all for His glory! He is cheering you on from the sidelines!
You have been trained and well equipped and He will continue to teach and lead you as you go!
And as you go others will come to join you on your journey to help fulfill the purposes of the Lord assigned to you and them.
Put on your new shoes and
GO, DO, RUNNNNN!
The future is glorious!
Finish the race!
Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NKJV
 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.  And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.  Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus, I fight: not as one who beats the air.  But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 10:36-38 NKJV
 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:  "For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.  Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him."
Psalm 139:23-24 NKJV
 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;  And see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Timothy 4:6-8 NKJV
 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
