"New Land is Birthing - Kingdom Territory is Yours"
By Helen Cobanov
I have felt, for some time, that there have been people sitting in a place of waiting and prayer and some who have been really contending for their destiny. I believe that God has been taking us through a process of refining His Bride, ready
for all that is ahead. I have felt recently that a pressure has been building and have this very expectant feeling in my spirit.
I can feel it in the atmosphere around me, like the air is pregnant. I feel a painful cry of endurance building
like something significant is about to take place. As God made me aware of this expectant feeling, I heard the words singing out, "New land is birthing! Kingdom territory is yours!"
As I heard these words, I saw a vision of people standing
on water. God showed me that these people are ones who have been willing to step out of the boat, so to speak. They have endured storms and at times they have struggled to keep their heads above water. They have been treading water and contending in
prayer; crying out to God for breakthrough. But through all they've endured, they have built an unwavering faith and a determination to keep their eyes locked on God and trust Him in all things.
"Then Jesus said, 'Be
brave and don't be afraid. I am here!' Peter shouted out, 'Lord, if it's really You, then have me join you on the water!' 'Come and join me,' Jesus replied. So Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus." (Matt. 14:27-29 TPT)
Then I saw a wave of God's Spirit rising up and moving across the earth. I saw new land rising up from the depths of the ocean. This land was springing up in front of people and I heard the words: "It's time to come to shore. It's time to take the land."
Place Your Feet on the Shore and Advance
Then I heard the Lord say, "I am birthing new land and you are to place your feet on the shore and advance! 'I will give you every place where you set your foot,
as I promised Moses' (Josh. 1:3). Now take this land and claim it for My Kingdom.
"I have heard your prayers, your cries for breakthrough, for new territory. As you have been willing to come out of your comfort zone into places you thought
were out of your depth, you have learned to trust Me and to listen to My voice. At times, you have felt that you're in way over your head, or that you've been treading water in the waiting.
"But through all this you have not looked back,
and I have built in you a deep endurance and a strength as you have learned to keep your eyes fixed on Me. From that place you have seen Me lift you up and you have experienced the joy of walking on water with Me. Through all this I have been aligning you
and preparing you for the path I have ahead."
As people stood on this land, I saw it extending and growing. I saw more land rising up in this ocean. More Kingdom territory was being claimed as more people started to receive breakthrough.
Strategy for Greater Territory
As I saw this unfolding before my eyes, I could see God's Spirit moving strategically across the earth. These new areas of land started to connect, and people started to
advance together like a mighty army covering the earth. I saw strategic paths aligning with strategic connections, which then took greater territory and brought an even greater move of God's power. This move of God's power reached places which were once thought
unreachable, and changed places that were once thought unchangeable. People were receiving this new land at different times, yet God's timing was perfect.
"Don't doubt your delays, but trust My ways. Fix your eyes on Me,
for you are about to see ALL that I have planned. Now come with Me, My Kingdom territory is yours."
"I admit that I haven't yet acquired the absolute fullness that I'm pursuing, but I run with passion into His abundance so that I may reach
the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. I don't depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight
for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. And
let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path with one passion." (Phil. 3:12-16 TPT)
