The Breaker is Coming

Updated: Jul 30, 2021

God showed me an image of a wave coming to a crest. The crest of a wave is defined as the point in which reached “maximum displacement”. Displacement can be defined in a number of ways, some of which include a forced leaving (from normal territory), the distance from the original starting point, or (in psychology) redirecting a negative emotion from the rightful recipient to another person or object. There has been a swelling wave since last year that has made many feel like they were forced to “back down on spiritual territory”, forget their original starting point, or even redirect negative emotions and efforts from the enemy to other people or things. This has all been building a greater distance between the church and getting back to equilibrium. Equilibrium is defined as all opposing forces being cancelled out. Spiritual clarity and balance. Unshakable and standing on the Word. As I saw this wave cresting, I heard “the wave is breaking”.

I began to look into what exactly happens when a wave crests. When a wave crests, it’s called breaking. A BREAKER is a wave in which the amplitude reaches a point in which it is overturned. We also hear the term breaker spiritually when an attack is not allowed to continue. Breaking of waves happens when there is a dramatic change in depth below the water (as when a wave is getting closer to land fall). Likewise, spiritual breakers happen right before a new wave of Heaven meets earth. Also, when a wave BREAKS, it becomes surf-able. Spiritually, that momentum is turned to be able propel us instead of working against us.


The wave that has been building has caused huge feelings of disorientation and displacement- even division and anger. This has been a result of what has been building in the Heavenlies. As it gets closer to “land fall” on earth as it is in Heaven, there is going to be a BREAKER shift. The forces that have come against the you in the past year are actually going to be able to be turned and used to “propel” the a new wave of revival. We must be ready to “ride the wave”.

Preparing to ride the wave involves four things-

  1. Ask God to remind you of your territory. As you allow Him to realign your boundaries you’ll remember the space He has commissioned you to occupy. The enemy has been trying to force you out of the very territories that you are supposed to partner with Him for the Kingdom.

  2. Realign your vision to your “original starting point”. In the shuffle a lot has gotten out of alignment. As I read about military leaders in the times of Saul and David, realigning your focus meant realigning your troops. Our modern day troops are our time and effort. Where we are focusing is where we are sending the “troops” of our time and effort. Make sure your focus has not shifted. Many times a “realignment” will look like returning to the simple callings of loving God well (taking a step back to soak with Him) and loving others well (remembering to stop for the one and do the small acts of love that build the Kingdom in greater ways than massive movements of thousands).

  3. Correcting any “displacement” back on to the original enemy. Ask the Lord to illuminate places in which you’ve let your fight against the enemy turn into a fight against CIRCUMSTANCES or PEOPLE. In these areas begin to battle in prayer against the actual source, even blessing your enemies and surrendering your circumstances to the Lord.

  4. Watch the small things. This readiness is like that of Elijah watching the skies in 1 Kings 18.

“And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” 42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees. 43“Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked. “There is nothing there,” he said. Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.” 44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.” So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ ” 45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel. 46 The power of the LORD came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.” (1 Kings 18:41-46)

Elijah had gotten a word. He stuck to the word and even in the SMALLEST sign of its fulfillment he was ready to run. God is moving in the SMALL THINGS. Treat the little things as opportunities to be faithful. Don’t wait until the wave breaks to start paddling. Don’t wait until you see the fulfillment of God’s promises to start responding faithfully.

Like a wave building momentum, taking this time to do these simple realignments will position you to ride the breaker that is swiftly about to make landfall. Things that have been getting “off track” for over a year now are going to begin to turn. This is a critical time to not lose focus.


Activation Prayer:

Lord,

Thank you for all you’re doing that I cannot see. Thank you for the turn around you have planned. Thank you that we feel a shift drawing near. God, remind me of the specific territory you have called me to steward for Your Kingdom. Help me to set my boundaries well. I pray that you would refocus me on being faithful in the small things and loving well. Help me to realign the “troops” of my time and effort to match what you would have me doing in this season. I pray for renewed focus and clarity, and I pray for eyes to see and ride the wave of revival coming.

In Your precious and Holy name I pray,

Amen.
