The Lord recently spoke to me about this being a double advancement season. In many of the airports I have visited, there are things called a moving walkway. The moving walkway is designed to take you from one part of the airport to another at double speed.
On a moving walkway, you can stop and allow the walkway to take you from where you are to where you are going. However, if you don't stop and keep moving, you will reach your destination in half the time and arrive twice as fast.
I believe this is a season where God is taking many from one place to another and advancing them at twice the speed. Whenever God calls anyone to a season of prayer, fasting, rest or retreat, He is actually setting you up to advance.
Prayer is like a moving walkway. It will carry you forward and accelerate you in everything God has called you to do. God has called me to these kinds of seasons of set-apart time with Him more times than I can count. My wife, Autumn, always makes sure I schedule these kinds of retreats to get alone and hear from God. Every time I have pulled back to retreat in prayer and get in the presence of God, when I begin to move forward again, everything accelerates in double time!
Double advancement is coming to those who have been hidden in the place of prayer. God can accomplish more in one hour of prayer than we could accomplish in hours of work.
This double advancement is for those who have been like an arrow in a bow. When you shoot an arrow, you must pull it back first before you shoot it. The farther an arrow is pulled back, the farther it will go when it is released.
I believe that many are like an arrow in this season. As the Lord has been pulling you back, when He releases you, you will hit your target and advance!
God is advancing so many in this season and acceleration is coming double. Some will accelerate so quickly that you will know this was your word from God. Keep moving forward with God as the advancement comes and you will hit your mark at full speed.
For those who have been faithful in prayer, fasting, obedience and sowing, God is about to launch you forward into the fullness of what He has for you. Get ready for this double advancement season!
