I recently had a prophetic vision of what some would call a lifesaver or a life-preserver flotation device. In the vision, I saw a lifesaver on the side of a boat.
Then I heard the Lord say, "Do you know why I give people prophetic words? I give prophetic promises to people when they are about to drown and feel like they are sinking. My prophetic promises are like a lifesaver that people can hold onto when they feel like they may go under."
Through this prophetic vision, I knew that the Lord wanted me to share this with those who feel like they are sinking in life. I want to encourage you to hang onto the dreams, the promises, the prophetic words and the purpose that God has given you. Hang onto them as if they were a lifesaver, because they are.
You have to learn how to use your prophetic words as a flotation device. There are many times in life that, if you only look through a natural lens at your circumstances, you will see that nothing is making sense. However, you can hang onto the prophetic words and promises when you feel like you are sinking and going under. You will not go under or drown because the Holy Spirit will keep you afloat with life-saving promises!
The prophetic words given to you by God are like a lifesaver because you can hang onto them. In the natural, if someone has gone overboard or is drowning, someone will throw them a lifesaver flotation device. The person who needs to be rescued can hang onto the lifesaver and the person on the other end can pull them to safety with the rope attached to it.
You may feel like you are sinking, but God has thrown you a prophetic word you can hang onto while you wait for the Holy Spirit to pull you back in to safety. You will not drown if you hang onto every word God had given you.
Many are treading water, spending all their time, energy and effort to keep from going under in life. It does not have to be this way. When you encounter seasons or situations where you feel like you can barely keep your head above water, grab hold of the prophetic words God has given you. They will be a lifesaver to you.
In your darkest moments, do not give up or let go. Hang onto every word that God has spoken to you because He is faithful to fulfill every promise. I want to encourage you today that you will not drown.
I don't care how impossible your situation may seem or how high the waters may seem. You will not go under or be overtaken because God will do everything that He has told you He will do. Just hang onto His Word and you will reach your destiny and destination.
