And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ (John 1:32, 33 NKJV)
A dove is a very sensitive animal. Remain is very important. If I have a dove on my shoulder and I walk down a few steps, how do I keep the dove from flying off? Then every step is with the dove on my mind. We need to learn to Host the presence, so that every place we go the atmosphere becomes charged by His Presence. What you are aware of, you can release. What you are conscious of, you are positioned to manifest.
Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth. He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore. (Genesis 8:7-12 NKJV)
The dove is always looking for the resting place.
So that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed. (Acts 5:15, 16 NKJV)
Shadows have no substance, but your shadow will always release what overshadows you.
