Prophetic Word for the season:  A fresh hunger and thirst for God

Some months ago God started to speak to me about a ‘new wineskin’ that is needed for the ‘new wine’ He wants to pour out.  I was especially excited when I found the song “new wine” from Hillsongs worship (There is More).  Many times God uses specific songs to speak about what He wants to do on the earth..and this song is such a prophetic voice. A new internal wineskin The ‘new wineskin’ that God wants to build does not refer to structures in church or ministries.  It is actually our internal......
