Yesterday while driving to work I was at a stop light and watching the cars cross the intersection when I began to see each car as a bulldozer. Every car on the road after that was a bulldozer and I said “Ok, Lord, where are You going with this one?” and started paying closer attention.
This morning, not only did I continue to see bulldozers, but amongst them I began to see walls, wrecking balls and construction hats on people. I saw the wrecking balls swing, bringing down the walls and then the bulldozers moved into place to push the rubble out of the way.
I hear the Lord say “I AM the Wrecker of your carefully built stronghold. The walls you have constructed around you are not there to keep you protected, you have built them based on lies you allowed yourself to believe. Your walls were erected because you felt the need to withdraw and protect yourself, but I AM telling you, the walls were strategically built to keep you in. I AM bringing destruction to the walls, no longer will you be hidden behind them, no longer will you live with a false sense of security. Stand still and see the deliverance of the LORD! I am breaking down the stronghold and building you up on the Rock of Christ, the solid foundation, the Chief Cornerstone! This wall I AM building with you is one of liberty. I have set you free, released you from prison and broken down the wall of lies. Do not be afraid of the landscape before you, keep your eyes on the work I AM doing and remain hidden in the shadow of My wings.”
He will break down every high tower and every fortified wall (Isaiah 2:15 NLT).
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain (Psalm 127:1).
