Connie Hunter-Urban: Positioned
This morning, I saw a vision of my husband and me standing in front of a great water that I thought was our own Red Sea. Then the Lord spoke one of my favorite passages from Scripture. When Moses was positioned at his Red Sea with the impossibility of the sea looming large before him and the huge Egyptian army coming up from behind, God spoke to Moses to “Go forward” (Exod. 14:15). Impossibilities would’ve overtaken that large group if they stood still and didn’t proceed in faith. Then, their inactivity would’ve become their destruction.

However, as I looked around me, this wasn’t flat desert land but rather filled with hills and crags that overlooked the place where God would bring deliverance and direction to the Promised Land. Many of those people around me were ready for battle–sitting on horses, suited up in armor, and carrying their spears–but they couldn’t go forward. They were positioned in places where going forward was impossible, so they could only watch what God would do. Many were on hills and crags where going forward would mean plunging to their own destruction. Before they could find the place from which God wanted them to proceed forward, they needed to come down from the high places where they had taken up residence while they readied themselves for battle. Then they could re-position to where God could make both a way for their escape from their enemies and entrance toward their destiny.
As a new year is breaking upon us, let the high places where we reside not be idols that we’ve erected and grown comfortable with but rather the heavenly places where we can sit with Jesus, hear His heart for us, and receive new vision (see Eph. 2:6). We can’t reside in our past revelations but receive new revelation that makes us look forward then go that way. Let us proceed in confidence in the task that’s impossible with man but is possible with God because we’re positioned where He wants us to be as He leads us to places we can’t imagine.
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
