This year, after another year of difficult drought in Southern California, scientists are saying they had a March Miracle, with almost double the normal amount of rain in March alone. This set the desert up for a phenomenon called a “super bloom.” Though these usually only occur every 10-15 years and under some of the most difficult situations, Southern California has had three super blooms in the last four years! I believe this is a sign.
Watch for the Super Blooms
Last year, I heard a UK prophet named Rachel Hickson mention a story about the “super bloom.” She said that the Flanders Fields in Belgium are famous for all the poppies that sprang up after the agitating of the soil, boots and bloodshed during the trench warfare of WWI. She taught that at times it takes harsh conditions, droughts, fires, floods, etc. to agitate the seed and wake it up for a super bloom.
Right before that, I had had a dream in which God spoke to me declaring a season of “Crazy Increase,” a season of super abundance. I felt these messages were a confirmation to one another about the times and seasons we were coming into, and I heard the Lord say, “Watch for the super blooms. Expect the super blooms.” Many, may say, “Are you kidding? We are in one of the most challenging economic seasons we have ever been through.” This actually makes the promise of God even more powerful and the signs God is sending us even more profound.
This year in February, the Dead Sea area of Israel experienced the first super bloom in history. On 2/19/20 and 2/20/20 the headlines in the Israeli news read, “Rains bring stunning displays to parched Dead Sea area,” and “Dead Sea Blooms Floral Wonderland for First Time.” This sea is full of salt and the land is one of the harshest on Earth, yet it burst into beautiful fields of flowers! This is what God can do in our lives. He can bring rain on our dry ground and cause our desert places to blossom and bloom like the rose.
From Trial to Triumph!
Hear the promises from the Lord in Isaiah 35 from The Passion Translation:
“The wilderness and dry land will be joyously glad! The desert will blossom like a rose and rejoice! Every dry and barren place will burst forth with abundant blossoms, dancing and spinning with delight! Lebanon’s lush splendor covers it, the magnificent beauty of Carmel and Sharon. My people will see the awesome glory of Yahweh, the beautiful grandeur of our God.
“Strengthen those who are discouraged. Energize those who feel defeated. Say to the anxious and fearful, ‘Be strong and never afraid. Look, here comes your God! He is breaking through to give you victory! He comes to avenge your enemies. With divine retribution He comes to save you!’
“Then blind eyes will open and deaf ears will hear. Then the lame will leap like playful deer and the tongue-tied will sing songs of triumph. Gushing water will spring up in the wilderness and streams will flow through the desert. The burning sand will become a refreshing oasis, the parched ground bubbling springs and the dragon’s lair a meadow with grass, reeds, and papyrus.
“There will be a highway of holiness called the Sacred Way. The impure will not be permitted on this road, but it will be accessible to God’s people. And not even fools will lose their way. The lion will not be found there; no wild beast will travel on it—they will not be found there. But the redeemed will find a pathway on it. Yahweh’s ransomed ones will return with glee to Zion. They will enter with a song of rejoicing and be crowned with everlasting joy. Ecstatic joy will overwhelm them; weariness and grief will disappear!”
You may be in one of the driest times of your life, but God is getting ready to send the rain of His presence in abundance upon you to wake up the seeds of destiny, prosperity and purpose within you.
Your place of trial is becoming your place of triumph! Your place of barrenness is becoming your place of blessing! Your wilderness is becoming your place of victory!
Every place of delay and dormancy are becoming places of a superabundant super bloom! It’s time for crazy increase!
