What Happens with Swaddling

Well, I posted about something I saw in prayer—the Lord’s desire to swaddle our souls. Today I ask what actually happens when we go there with Him? These are some influences I noticed this morning in a swaddling time with Him.

As I turned my attention to having my soul swaddled by God, I was aware of the peace and light and truth of God reviving and registering within. They gradually become the contrast by which to evaluate other influences that have happened:

    • Messages that did not come from Him and have lodged detrimentally; it becomes evident how they mess with peace and joy, even undermining hope and expectation, or clouding our faith. A fresh wind of His Spirit is called for to correct, adjust, or purge altogether messages that do not serve or honor His purposes.

    • It reinforces the messages that do come from Him, builds and encourages and reminds us of their intended confirmation and empowering.

    • It’s a time to cancel out the dampening or robbery of spiritual opposition to the things of God and clear whatever shadows of it remain.

    • It brings His assurance into events which challenge our faith and can tend to separate us from God’s help in the event and His peace through it.

    • It revives the meaning and fruitfulness of the things we are about with Him and continually deepens and cements our bond of oneness with Him.
I am more convinced than ever that it is a necessary, preferably daily, maintenance of soul, since there is no day that does not present one or more of these challenges and the grave, though subtle danger of losing ground. Without swaddling proportionate to the challenges we may barely perceive loss and be unable to intercept and correct it with sufficient authority.
