Earlier this year, I had a vision where I saw portals opened up in the heavens. When I saw it, I knew that this was connected to a fresh sound of heaven breaking through into the earth.
It was also clear that this was also a breakthrough in the hearts of God's people. Through the spirit of worship, God is unclogging the wells of people's spirits that have been clogged through lies, doubt and unbelief. Through worship, we experience the reality of God's presence.
"Isaac dug again the wells of water, which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham. He called their names after the names his father had called them" (Gen. 26:18, MEV).
In this Genesis passage, Isaac unclogs the wells that have been clogged and shut down by the Philistines. This picture of Isaac removing the "clogs" of the enemy is a spiritual parallel of how we also need remove the stuff of the enemy out of our lives.
When we pursue God and have encounter with God through worship, there is a fresh faith released in us. This helps open up our spirits and the heavens over our lives. We begin to hear His voice more clearly. We can also see how our worship affects our attitudes and every aspect of our lives, for all that we are is surrendered in worship to God (Mal. 3:8-12)
When we break through in our worship to God, we begin to experience an overflow of God's presence in our lives. The river of God flows out of us and simultaneously removes the hindrances both in our spirits and in the heavens. Some may feel as though their lives have a heaviness, like a hindering dark cloud. That cloud is easily blown away when our lives are truly abandoned worship and devotion to God. When we find His refreshing in our lives as the spirit of worship takes over. This also affects the glory that is released when we come together corporately. Our personal breakthroughs help us enter into even greater corporate breakthroughs where God's presence is experienced in even greater measures.
Tapping into the spirit of worship and prayer opens up the flow His river to break us through into a place of abundance in His presence. When we capture a fresh sound of worship, it will open things up within us in a way where refreshing and joy will be released in our spirits and God will increase and bring increase in us from glory to glory.
"But we all, seeing the glory of the Lord with unveiled faces, as in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Cor. 3:18, MEV).
God really is a God of increase. This is His language. Heaven is always expanding, light is always traveling and taking more distance. As we connect with God through worship, it will contribute to that increase, His blessing being manifested in and through us.
