The Winds of Adversity Will Become Still

Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord showed me a vision of men and women walking against a fierce wind that was blowing against them. They were having to lean over to take steps forward which kept them facing the ground. Rather than letting these winds of adversity blow them backwards, they slowly but surely pressed forward (even while bent down). As they walked against these winds I saw them go from a weakened state to a place of great strength. An exchange had taken place that took them from their human strength into the supernatural strength that comes in surrender and dependency upon His strength.

Then, suddenly, the wind ceased. These men and women stood upright and all that they had spent years pressing in for dropped upon them. These winds had not only strengthened them but they had shifted things in spirit realm and the natural realm to cause them to come upon His sons and daughters. Transitions had happened and alignments had occurred as these winds blew. These men and women suddenly could access what they had spent years fighting for. In the sudden stillness rest and refreshing came upon them as well.

Last, as these men and women were now strengthened as they learned to walk in the Spirit and as they now were able to access the things that the enemy fought so hard to keep them from, a new wind began to blow. This is a wind of the Spirit that will be at their back to make the journey ahead be filled with a great grace that they will give them a far greater joy in the journey ahead. It is a wind of grace that will be the breath of God upon all that they do.

A sovereign rest and an incredible joy will be upon these ones that overcame the winds of adversity as they came into complete reliance upon the Spirit of the Lord. The yoke of human strength has been replace with the easy yoke of the Lord that gives rest. The limits of human wisdom have been replaced by the fear of the Lord that ushers in the wisdom of God. Doors of access to spiritual and prophetic promises will open and the doors where the enemy previously gained access will close.

Don't stop moving forward! The winds that have left you bend over will become still allowing you to stand upright in His righteousness. You have been changed, you have been trained, you have been refined, you have been overcoming the things that have kept you stuck in past seasons. The fear of the Lord is now the standard over your life.

"From the west, people will fear the name of the LORD, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the LORD drives along.”
Isaiah 59:19
