Are You In The Tomb or The Womb?

Recently I read a FB post from my friend Heidi Bass entitled Are We in the Tomb or in the Womb - Time for Unveiling is Coming! I was so struck by it that I asked her permission to share it here. I'll do that in my style of a Self Discovery Journey. I hope you will choose to use your time here with me and with Him. Grab your journal and a pen and come along!

This is such a great question for where we are today!

Where are you? I encourage you to start by taking a minute to invite Holy Spirit to join you and to bring revelation and insight where you need it.

What's it like for you locked away in your home. Are you in the Tomb or the womb?

Take a moment to picture yourself there.

Describe it in your journal...What does it look like?

What does it feel like?

What can you hear around you?

In her post, Heidi talked about the enemy --not only has he tried to isolate us for Easter--we're now encouraged to wear masks or cover our faces in public!

While she talked to Daddy God about it he said this is just another way the enemy is trying to mask & muzzle God's people. Then her aha moment came about the words that God had given her and other prophetic voices for 2020 - hidden time is over, it is time for the unmasking & unveiling of authentic selves! It is time for people long hidden to be seen and heard! It is time for Royal announcements and decrees!

What are the grave clothes that you have wrapped yourself up in, hidden in that tomb?

What authentic self does He want to unveil?

What Royal announcements and decrees does he want to use you to deliver?

She went on to share the word God had given her for the church for 2020. He is unmasking our True Identities & releasing Authentic Voices so we, His people, can walk in the fullness, wholeness, and completeness of their calling, blessing, plan, purpose, and destiny for our lives!

The enemy, knowing this is God's plan for 2020, then creates a situation to try to thwart it-- where people are now hidden most of the day, and then when we do go out--we are masked, muffled, and covered. We can't even smile at each other! The enemy thinks he has won--yet many are the plans of the enemy and man--it is God's plan that always prevails!

The Beauty is we have a choice to stay hidden in the tomb of our homes and behind that mask with our voices muffled...or not.

Take a minute to picture yourself hidden behind a mask... What do you look like?

How does it feel breathing through this mask? Describe it...

Ask the Lord what you're hiding from and let Him respond using your non-dominant hand to write His response.

What does your voice sound like muffled? Can it be heard?

Ask Him what the enemy is trying to muzzle and muffle in you...

What does He want you to do about it?

She continues...Here's the thing--we may feel like we're in a cave or a tomb--hidden, unseen, unheard, isolated and alone--the Truth is--we're really in the womb--being fed, nourished, reset, and restored to His Original Design and Intent--another Word He gave me for 2020 to corporately declare over His Bride.

So now if you saw yourself in the Tomb, I want you to shift your vision from the Tomb to the Womb.

What does it look like there...

What does it feel like?

What emotions are you feeling?

See God wants to call His people deeper, call His people higher during this time in the womb. Deeper into rest--marinating in His Presence, soaking, seeking, full immersion--going deeper with Him than we've ever gone before.

What does it feel like to rest, truly rest in Him...

What are you soaking up in His Presence?

Describe the feeling of safety and protection in the womb.

Higher with Him--seated
