As we prayed at church yesterday I was looking at the nation of New Zealand from a very high perspective and saw the overview of the whole land. As I watch a line came down over the land and I felt the Lord called it a plumb line. It stretched the length of the entire nation and was totally straight, crisp and clear even as it was laid down over the mountains, hills and valleys. As the plumb line came down, another line that matched it exactly rose up out of the depths of the earth, and I felt that it represented the will of God for New Zealand that had been laid down in its foundations from the very beginning. The two lines came together and merged. As they connected there was an activation, a charge, that magnetised the plumb line. Immediately particles that looked like metal filings began to emerge from the land and were pulled to the plumb line. There were too many to count, and the movement increased and increased.
The particles represented all people and things being drawn to Jesus, and their movement is the “move” of God we’ve cried out for and are beginning to see. This movement will transform our nation into the true mirror image of heaven that God created us for. Let us continue to pray, praise, worship, align our hearts and minds with heaven, and declare our “Amen” to heaven’s “Yes” over Aotearoa.
