In a time of corporate prayer, the Lord spoke this to me, "Download. Downpour. But not downsize." As I continued to pray, I saw a vision of a barren land. It was very dry and desolate but I could tell that there was seed in the ground. Then, suddenly a downpour of rain came and replenished the land. This downpour brought renewal and refreshing. I believe there is a downpour coming to many people. A downpour of God's love is coming to wash away the hard places in your heart and lies you have believed. This downpour of God's love will also wash away hurt, pain and resentment that has held many people back for so long. There is also a downpour of blessing coming. Many have been faithfully sowing for many years, but this downpour of blessing is coming for you to reap. This downpour will water those seeds of destiny and increase that have already been planted.
Many people want to move forward but they are missing key insight from heaven. You know how it is when you want to use a new app or system on your phone; you have to download it first. Sometimes the download takes a minute. But until the download is complete, you cannot use your device the way you want to. If we try to move forward before the download is complete, we will not be able to fully operate the way that we know we should. Then we will become frustrated and take a step back; therefore, they downsize. We must wait and trust God's timing, then move forward when we have fully received the download from God. I believe God is giving many people a download from heaven during this season that will help them function at a higher level. A download from heaven is being given to the body of Christ to move us forward.
I have seen many people in life, ministry and business experience a few rough seasons and downsize. There are times in life that you have to stand firm on the prophetic word that God has spoken over your life. Even when it looks impossible in the natural, remember to see with spiritual eyes and believe the promise. A downpour of God's love and blessing is coming your way. Then a download from God is going to come and make you operate at a higher level. And during the process, as you're waiting on the downpour and the download, do not shrink back, give up or downsize. Don't move forward just to move back. I'm telling you, my friends, stay firm and hold onto what God has promised you!
