Last night as I slept I had a vision of myself standing in a very shallow river where the water only reached up to my ankles. I do not know how I got in this river of shallow water; I just know that as the vision began I was fervently looking around because of a loud rushing sound that I was hearing off in the distance. Scared and feeling deathly alone I looked in all directions to see where this thunderous noise was coming from. I wanted to run but I did not know what direction to go in. I only knew that I wanted to go in the opposite direction of this overwhelming sound. The sound then began to escalate as though it was getting nearer to me. It sounded like it was coming from behind me. Then it sounded like it was coming from in front of me. The suddenly it seemed to surround me on all sides. I frantically looked for my escape route but found that my feet seemed stuck. With my feet seemingly nailed to the ground I could not move. As much as I tried to get loose it soon became clear to me that I was stuck in that place. I soon realized that the sound that I was hearing was the sound of rushing water. It sounded like when water flows over a waterfall, except this sounded like it had greater force and pressure. It sounded like this water was rushing toward me unhindered and would soon engulf me. I decided that since I was faced with inevitably being swallowed up by this approaching wave of water that I would just brace myself for the impact. I closed my eyes and sought to bury my feet deeper and more firmly into place; I clenched my fist and braced myself for the impact. As I squeezed my eyes tightly closed the Lord said, “Though the rivers of your past and the river you are now standing in may be shallow there is now a deep river forming in you and around you. Brace yourself because I am sending Living Water to flood your soul. For I Am Living Water (John 7:38)(Jeremiah 7:13)and I have lead you to this place where you shall receive living water for your soul (Rev 7:17) and only I can provide this Living Water (John 4:9-11). In this season I Am asking you to see with your ears. Just as you heard the sound of My Living Water coming into your atmosphere now you must receive it as though you have already seen it with your eyes because it will surely come upon you. At the appointed time streams of living water will overtake you. My Children will learn to engage all the senses of their souls in this season to trust and expect My will to come to pass. Eyes must hear, ears must see, hearts must speak and mouths must wait in silence. There are deep rivers forming, immerse yourself and drink of My Living Water so that you are sustained for your Promised Land.
