There is a wind of time to shift and change things in our lives. A new wind will remove old obstacles, challenges and trials and make way for a fresh new season. The word wind has been used in the bible, to represent the move of God, the Holy Spirit and the angels of God. “And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:2). The Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, came in like a rushing wind and filled the house. Immediately, those present spoke with other tongues as the spirit gave them utterance. This was the manifestation of the Holy Spirit which was promised.
David made several references to angels, appearing like the wind and the messengers like a flame of fire. We know that God created the elements and manifests his presence through them. It was an east wind, which drove back the waters of the Red Sea. “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided” (Exodus 14:21). God also instructed Ezekiel to summon the wind to fill the valley of dry bones. “Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live” (Ezekiel 37:9).
Jesus also made reference to the wind, as the spirit of God in the New Testament. “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8). The Holy Spirit within us, like a mighty wind, fills our bodies with power for service. The wind of God also drives away, people out of places and positions which they occupy illegally. “Let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them away” (Psalm 35:5)! They also push back the enemy, who try to pursue God’s children.
I sense a fresh wind, a mighty wind to bring in a new move of God. A mighty move of God is taking place and the spirit and breath of God, will clear every obstacle which stands in our way. The breath of God brings new life and the north wind of winter and rain, gives way to the south wind. This brings spring time and harvest and a fresh new vegetation. It’s time for planting in the kingdom of God and for new things to be established. The wind also carries us and gives us fresh new momentum. Like an athlete who is supported to run with the wind behind him, we are being accelerated by the spirit of God. There is new life coming into dead situations and this wind will bring revival.
