RHEMA 6/14/12  CORRALLED FOR A SEASON, CORRALLED FOR A REASON

 

HEARD:   I saw ostrich feathers hanging around a neck, as in a Hawaiian lei.

 

 

HEARDQuickened thought.  Transparent. 

 

FROM THE WWWDo ostriches put their heads in the sand?

 

Actually, thatís a myth: ostriches do not bury their heads in the sand! When an ostrich senses danger and cannot run away, it flops to the ground and remains still, with its head and neck flat on the ground in front of it. Because the head and neck are lightly colored, they blend in with the color of the soil. From a distance, it just looks like the ostrich has buried its head in the sand, because only the body is visible.

 

Born to run

The ostrich is the largest and heaviest living bird. It is a flightless bird that can never take to the skies, so instead itís built for running. Its long, thick, and powerful legs can cover great distances without much effort, and its feet have only two toes for greater speed.

 

Ostriches can sprint in short bursts up to 43 miles per hour (70 kilometers per hour), and they can maintain a steady speed of 31 miles per hour (50 kilometers per hour). Just one of an ostrichís strides can be 10 to 16 feet (3 to 5 meters) longóthatís longer than many rooms!

INTERP:  This is a parable of laying still and low before the Lord. 

 

History of the Hawaiian Lei

The lei custom was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by early Polynesian voyagers, who took an incredible journey from Tahiti, navigating by the stars in sailing canoes. With these early settlers, the lei tradition in Hawaii was born.

 

Leis were constructed of flowers, leaves, shells, seeds, nuts, feathers, and even bone and teeth of various animals. In Hawaiian tradition, these garlands were worn by ancient Hawaiians to beautify themselves and distinguish themselves from others. The Maile lei was perhaps the most significant. Among other sacred uses, it was used to signify a peace agreement between opposing chiefs. In a Heiau (temple), the chiefs would symbolically intertwine the green Maile vine, and its completion officially established peace between the two groups.

 

Prov 16:7 NKJV

When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

 

PIXI saw a horse in the coral.

 

HEARD: Corralled.  Itís not that much longer sweetheart.  Things are going to be changing.  In a good way, I promise. 

 

QUICKENED MEMORY TRANCE VISION:  In the 1980ís I had a vision where I saw a horse in a coral and it was tied to a post.  It was leaning and faunching at the bit to be set free to run a race.  I saw there was a divine restraint upon the horse and there was a padlock on the post keeping the horse restrained there.  I suddenly saw a top of a  writing pen that had a clicker that one pushes down to start writing.  I heard the pen click, and the padlock was opened and the horse ran wildly out of the coral.  At the end of the vision I was inside the horse and was running as fast as I could out of the pen.

 

WORD TO PONDER:  CORRALLED FOR A SEASON, CORRALLED FOR A REASON  6/14/12

Dear one, sometimes I bring you into a safe place where you are corralled, and feeling like you are going nowhere in your promises and dreams.  Yes those are times of humbly waiting upon Me, in quietness and confidence, as I allow danger to pass.  You need to trust Me that this is for your safety, because My timing is always perfect.  If you are restrained from running freely right now it is because I have a very strong purpose for your laying low.  Itís not that much longer dearest, Trust Me please.

 

Isa 30:15-16 NKJV

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." But you would not, 16 And you said, "No, for we will flee on horses" ó  Therefore you shall flee! And, "We will ride on swift horses" ó  Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
