In a vision, I saw a woman standing upon what felt like a small island. I saw her from about her mid back upward, as she faced the clear blue waters. She was wearing a bikini and I sensed this meant she had been “Son-bathing” or “soaking up the Son”. There was a sailboat slowly sailing by her with no one in it. I sensed this woman’s determination to investigate this strange sight. She walked forward and actually walked on the water. This seemed like nothing to her, as if this was something she always did! Then she got into the boat and sat down. I didn’t see Yeshua in the boat but I strongly felt that He was there. The sail of the boat unfurled and the wind immediately caught in the sail. The boat took off. I wondered why I felt Yeshua but didn’t see Him. Then I heard Him say, “I’m here. I’m the wind in your sails.”
Recently, the Lord has been drawing my attention to the concept of parousia, His coming or presence. I remember learning about the word on The Quickened Word a long while ago but didn’t know much about it. When I looked it up in the article called Straightway Airlifted by My Wind, I was surprised that sailboat was connected to it, for I have been repeatedly quickened to sailboats in the last two weeks.
Mark 6:45 (NKJV) And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
This process of being drawn to the concept of parousia through God’s breadcrumbs to me also reminded me of the woman in this vision. I sensed this sight of a sailboat with no occupant in it was a curious sight to her. It reminded me of Moses and the burning bush, how such a curious sight caused Him to turn aside and investigate. This one moment that stirred his curiosity was life-changing for Moses, and in effect became life-changing for all the children of Israel. It was his launching point.
As for the woman walking on water, I am reminded of the song Oceans (Where Feet May Fail):
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand
Whatever God may be drawing you aside to in this season, it is well worth turning aside and investigating the mystery! In fact, this point in time might be life-changing for you! Let faith and a childlike curiosity draw you out into the unknown. Christ will be there to meet you and launch you forward!
