Breaking through the glass ceiling

Two weeks ago - almost in a state of exhaustion - went to lay down in our sick room at work and I heard in my spirit the words "glass ceiling" and as I pondered this it resonated as it's felt for a very long time that at Malham we get glimpses of heaven .... that heaven sees us ... our prayers are ascending, but bouncing off this "glass ceiling" - the encouraging aspect though is that whereas in the past there has been a fog hanging over us - now it's clear.

So last night - as the sung worship was happening kept hearing in my spirit "look up - look up"  as I did so, saw a staircase (literally stone stairs suspended in the the air) and the Father impressed on my heart about Jacob's ladder and that a doorway was opening - the glass ceiling was being shifted.  I knew that we were not called to climb "higher" BUT that there was an exchange happening and that the room was being filled with an angelic presence and they were fuelling the sung worship) .  Reading Genesis
(28:10–19) today has encouraged me so much and I trust that you will be encouraged:
"He came to the place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or "beside him"] and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants; and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you." Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place; and I did not know it." And he was afraid, and said, "This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."
I went across to Terry as I know he is a seer - told him about the above and then almost as a joke said "If you see them - let me know and let me know what they are doing".  I had hardly got back to the other side of the room when Andy boomed out with Revelation 5 which is a clear description of angelic activity before the throne.  How awesome is our God - it tipped me into a state of total awe and wonder at how God does that! 

As I've been trawling through stuff about angels - the thing that chucks at my heart is the fact that angels only act on God's command - SO - that tells me that HE is hearing us, HE is responding to us AND this is the advance guard to prepare us for receiving HIM.
