In prayer recently I saw a field with many holes which were dug about 3 feet deep. I asked the Lord what were in the holes and I believe he said two things. The first was the Lord has been digging up things within us, giving revelation of our misperceptions of His truth, so it no longer affects our present behavior and beliefs.
The holes were then being covered up because the truth had now been revealed.
The second thing He was doing was uncovering unanswered prayers that we got tired of praying and had laid down, and even forgotten about. We lost hope, got discouraged and disillusioned that they would ever be answered. He is now uncovering some of those unanswered prayers, encouraging us with a new hope and passion that now is the season for those prayers to be declared again and watch what happens by His grace. These holes were then being covered up as each prayer was now answered.
It is a new season of transformation from some of our old ways of thinking and behavior. This is ushering in a new energy to revive the forgotten prayers that God by grace is now ready to answer through new declarations of faith. Thank you Lord for your grace to persevere, relying on your strength to accomplish your purposes.
