The Gazelle — The Power of God
By Thomas Downes
A number of months ago I had
a dream, or vision, of a gazelle bounding along some elevated railroad tracks in the brown, dried up fields, coursing across the plains of the Serengeti in Africa.
As the gazelle bounded along, at the
same time, a lion was running stride for stride, along the base of the elevated tracks.
As the lion tried to jump up on the tracks, it would tumble back down, get up again and continue its chase of the
Every time the lion tried to jump up, it would fall again and again, and each time, the gazelle was able to distance itself more and more from the lion.
In Isaiah 35 it says
“And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools
will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get up on it; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of The LORD will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting
joy will be upon their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
The gazelle is a very vulnerable animal; it represents you and me, vulnerable to the
wiles of the devil if you are not staying in tune with the Holy Spirit.
The lion represents Satan, who goes about seeking whom he may devour. Scripture says to resist him by being steadfast in the
faith, for you know that your brothers in The LORD are going through the same kinds of things.
The LORD has been calling you. “Return to Me, you who have been trying to run your own course, the course
of what you think is your own design.
I did not lead you that way, the way in which you have no access to the peace I have for you. For I AM your peace, and I have broken down every wall that has
kept you from truly finding My Presence.
Present yourself therefore, as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable unto God; it is the right thing to do.
not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. For I have called you by name, and you are Mine.
I AM jealous over you with a Godly jealousy. Now come unto Me, for you have heavily laden yourself with those things that don’t belong in your life.
For the Blood of Jesus will make
you whole again. Come now, call upon and search for Me with your whole heart, and I will be found by you”, says The LORD.
Miracles happen when the Power of God is present.
The Power of God is present in the Word That Is Sent. Jesus is the Word That is Sent..
Jesus is the Wisdom of God and the Power of God. Miracles will happen, because the Power of God is in the very Name of Jesus.
In Jesus Christ dwells all the fullness of God. Reach out to Him and
touch Him, now, and let Him fill you to overflowing.
In the Presence of The LORD there is fullness of Joy.
The Power of God
of God will be found in the open door.
No man can close it. No unclean entity can stop it. No lie can deny it. All doubt will be prosecuted by the truth and will be rendered useless.
No weapon formed against you will prosper; the words spoken against you, you shall condemn.
This is your heritage in The LORD, and your vindication comes from
Now stand and see the Salvation of The LORD, For He is Faithful Who promised and He will do it.
Great Grace is ahead of you. It is
time to believe!
