Gifts From Papa!
By Lana Vawser of Lana Vawser Ministries
I saw the people of God lifting up their worship to Him. Hands were raised and such adoration flowing from the hearts of His people to His throne. As they sung, as they worshiped, their worship was rising to Him like gifts. Gifts were surrounding His throne from all across the world in every tongue, giving Him praise. He was being enthroned in the praises of His people. (Psalm 22:3)
As the people of God worshipped I saw all distractions, fear and worries falling away. Everything not of Him was falling to the “wayside”. Hindrances being broken off, such a deeper positioning into deeper intimacy was taking place. Scales were falling off eyes and ‘plugs’ the enemy had placed in ears, suddenly POPPING OUT.
The Lord was SO delighted in the praises of His people. His eyes filled with tears of joy at the beauty of His children!!
I then saw Papa lean down from the throne and with an expectant excited heart He spoke.. “ASK ME.. go on.. ASK ME!!!!! Share the desires and dreams on your heart with Me that are arising to the surface as you worship Me. ASK ME! ASK ME! ASK ME!”
As I watched this my spirit began to leap in my belly with the excitement of a good Father, just waiting for His children to ASK, so He could LAVISH His good gifts upon them. What was bubbling up in their heart as they worshipped as what He had placed in their hearts.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:7-11)
As He spoke, constraints of fear of dreaming, fear of ‘asking for the wrong thing’, fear of ‘maybe what I am asking for isn’t what He wants’ was being broken as perfect love surrounded His people, the delight of a good Father.
I saw the people of God then climb up on His lap, and begin to share their hearts and dreams. He listened with such intent, such care, not to miss a detail. As they shared, I heard the sound of doors unlocking all around. New levels of intimacy were being unlocked with the heart of the Father.
The Lord was beaming with excitement and joy. The look in His eyes of “Oh you just wait and see!!!!!”
Suddenly, the vision changed and I saw the people of God standing before the throne again in worship. All of a sudden it began to RAIN. It was raining GIFTS AND SURPRISES. Fulfilled desires of His people’s hearts were raining down. 7 fold restoration gifts, raining down. Surprises raining down.
He spoke again..
“I am a GOOD GOOD Father. Do not be afraid to ask Me. Do not be afraid to share your heart with Me. Do not be afraid to dream with Me. As you worship, pay attention to what comes to the surface, for I am stirring the desires and dreams in your heart. Do not let fear hold you back any longer. As you open these gifts, not only will you receive incredible blessing and manifestation of your hearts desires and dreams.. but something even more precious…!!!”
The people of God began to open, gift after gift after gift and they began to sob. Tears of joy, tears of restoration, tears of healing, tears of freedom. At first, I thought they were sobbing because of their fulfilled dreams and desires before them, and that was part of it, but then there was something deeper.
IN the display of His faithfulness and provision that was SO above and beyond.. hearts were being healed by receiving a greater gift.. the gift of REVELATION. The gift of SEEING PAPA!!! Seeing JUST HOW GOOD HE REALLY IS!!!! How much He cares! How much He loves!
He kneeled down to each one and spoke “This is the season where gifts and surprises, manifested hearts desires and dreams will rain down in greater acceleration than you have ever seen and in the midst of the abundant rain, you shall see I AM MORE GOOD THAN YOU THINK I AM!!!!!!!!! Get ready to be thrown into a deeper SEA of SEEING My goodness.”
