Waste Places & The Gavel of God
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters" (Genesis 1:1-2). Another translation for "waters" in Hebrew could also be waste places.
This is a Word from the Lord to His Church:
Many are still living in dark places, allowing themselves to be susceptible to the enemy's schemes, filled with fear and loathing of themselves for doing so to the point of despair. Some feel that your life has been wasted. To you, I heard the Spirit of God say, "I am even now hovering over the wasted places of your lives." Within these areas that you have not yet fully surrendered to the Lord and have, thus far, been wasted, He desires to enlighten your eyes and bring revelation so that His creative power at work in you will cause fruitfulness and multiplication. In the dark places, He is bringing light. He is entering the scrapyard of your life to bring forth treasure that the enemy hid from your sight. So do not fear the light, for He exposes only to set you free from the enemy's deception and is hovering with the intent not to judge but to create anew in you!
Also, I saw three gavels, decisions rendered against someone from three different sources. Then, I saw a giant gavel come down from heaven and break these small gavels to dust blown away by the wind of the Holy Spirit. Finally, I heard the Lord say, "My judgments are true and righteous altogether!" So do not fear, for the Lord has reversed the enemy's indictments against you and ruled in your favor!
“The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than the honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.” Ps. 19:9-10 NASB95
