Take the Bridge

Isaiah 35:8 (MSG) “There will be a Highway called the Holy Road. No one rude or rebellious is permitted on this road. It's for God's people exclusively— impossible to get lost on this road. Not even fools can get lost on it. No lions on this road, no dangerous wild animals— Nothing and no one dangerous or threatening. Only the redeemed will walk on it. The people God has ransomed will come back on this road. They'll sing as they make their way home to Zion, unfading halos of joy encircling their heads, Welcomed home with gifts of joy and gladness as all sorrows and sighs scurry into the night.”

The Spirit of God has been ministering to me that the entire earth is most definitely in ‘the set time of the Lord.’ Although many have felt as though they have somehow stumbled off the right paths into muddy paths and still others are just gaining ground and sure footing after a long season of affliction and testing; God is saying to us that there is place of light speed velocity that will propel us into our destiny. So, even if you feel as if you have lost ground, or if you feel as if you have fully lost your way, God is still requiring that we would be steadfast, setting our faces as flint, even as we forget those things behind us and begin to press unyieldingly to those things ahead that He has ordained for this set time. As I have been seeking the Lord concerning this season, during a time of meditation the Lord spoke very clearly to me “take the bridge”. I immediately knew that God was speaking about Jesus and our need to stay vitally connected to Him in this hour. We must again and again crown Jesus as Lord and Savior in every aspect of our lives. We should not neglect in giving Him full authority and sovereign rule and power in every area; spirit, soul and body. There can be no limitations because God is removing the ceilings and the sky is the limit. Just as He said to Abram as “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can.” God is saying the same things to us today. God is saying that His promise is beyond our physical ability to comprehend without faith; yet it shall be as He has said and if we will just believe, we will apprehend it in Righteousness. God spoke this to Abram while he was in a place of doubt and struggle about his future. Abram had in obedience followed God to the place where God had led him. And in this place God now reveals Himself and His covenant Promise to Abram. Abram immediately tapped in and received the Word of God as Truth. This propelled Abram into a place of supernatural trust in a supernatural God. This is God’s desire for His children in this hour. As we have been led and have followed in obedience God has now brought us to place where we can hear Him and receive His covenant promise by faith in His spoken Word.

The word “take” denotes to accept something, to bear something, to have strength to hold something up and is defined as to carry or transport something or someone from one place to another. Bridge is defined as a structure allowing passage across obstacle a structure that is built above and across a river, road, or other obstacle to allow people or vehicles to cross it; a means of approach or something that provides a link, connection, or means of coming together; to create a means of communication or understanding between people or a means of reconciling their differences.

And the Lord says, I am the Bridge between the mountains and through the valleys, I lift you up so that your way is made safe. I enlarge your footsteps so that your feet might not slip and I lift you up lest you should dash your foot against the stone. I lift you above the storms and give you the divine perspective that empowers you to walk on water and believe for the impossible. Your circumstances are seeking to separate you from Me but I have a plan for your life and I know it full well. Nothing is impossible with Me and nothing shall be impossible for you as you believe. Even as your doubts have tried to plague you I am the bridge that connects your past to your present and your present to your destiny. I am the bridge that has worked all things together for your good. I am the bridge who testifies that what the enemy meant for your destruction I will use it for your good. I am He who stands in the gap on your behalf; connecting the pieces of your fragmented life. Most assuredly I say to you, you do not need to fear because I am the Bridge to oneness with the Father in which is found completeness and perfection. This bridge will not give way because it is the very sure, firm and steadfast foundation of your God. Stay connected and confident because you have built your foundation on My Son and it is strong enough to support your every load. I have bridged the gap and now you are free to come boldly into My presence. Take the Bridge that will lead you into the Promise both here in the earth and in eternity.
