The Winter is Over...
The season has changed,
the bondage of your barren winter has ended,
and the season of hiding is over and gone.
The rains have soaked the earth
and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Song of Songs 2:11-13
It's a new season! A season of pruning the vines in preparation for the new wine that God has in this season. When God prunes you, it feels like there is nothing left of you, but in the place of helplessness, vulnerability and surrender, God shows you that He prunes us to prepare us for fruitfulness. He is turning us into new wineskins, ready for His new wine.
"The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.”
Oh, so much change in this new season.
"And I saw the water,
but You saw the wine And I saw dead branches,
but You were the vine And I saw my weakness,
but You saw Your blood And I saw my failure,
but You were enough."
Can I not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around me?
The early signs of His purposes and plans are bursting forth...
