Vision: In your lifetime
2nd March 2014
I saw many people, in ones, twos, and threes, in canoes.
They had been travelling in these canoes for some time, in search of the place the Lord had told them to occupy.
They had been divinely guided all the way.
Now their canoes slowed down and they were directed to look up at the land the Lord had told them to inhabit.
When the people looked up, they saw that the lands that were allocated to them were filled with strange large and peculiar trees and other odd-looking foliage.
The weird shrubbery and trees and all else that grew upon the land was so unusually tightly packed that there did not appear to be much land they could lay their foot upon.
Furthermore, they had not been given a single instrument to clear the land.
The people looked flabbergasted. The Lord had supplied them the canoes, the direction, the guidance and a safe journey thus far; why had He provided the land but not the equipment with which to clear it, and make it inhabitable, they wondered. They despaired for a mere moment, that without the proper equipment, their lands would never be cleared in their lifetime; that they would be confined within a minuscule space, in so large an area.
“Will this land be cleared in our lifetime?” the people cried. “Lord, send us instruments with which to at least clear enough space to build a hut”.
They bowed their heads, and as they waited to know what God would have them now do, they all heard one word, “WATCH”.
The canoes pulled to the side.
The people looked up and saw the strongest and strangest storm their eyes had ever witnessed. Never in their lifetime had they witnessed such a storm, and they knew that they would never see another one like this again.
As they watched, they instantly recalled that the Lord had assured them that they would see wondrous things in their lifetime.
What they were seeing was a once-in-lifetime occurrence.
Everything strange growing upon the lands they were to occupy was in one clean sweep, brushed away by this unique storm.
To their delight, the storm did not touch them; there was not a ripple in the water, nor did a leaf turn, in the place where their canoes were positioned.
The lands were larger than they had expected and each one hastened to their allocated places to find that all that they needed to make the place inhabitable had already been provided.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
14 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
