Last night I had a dream, in this dream I was in a building with hundreds of people, I was on the stage and leading them in some way… I am not sure exactly what was taking place but I directed everyone’s attention to the big screen and I told them to wait for the message. I didn’t know what was coming so we all sat staring at the screen…..it seemed like an eternity in total silence and then it appeared, it came through like a “tweet” and it read like this:
God @God “He calls out moments”
And the place erupted with yells, shouting, dancing, singing, excitement and praise …. it went on and on for a very long time. It was like a brand new revelation and fresh word from God, and the feeling in the building was like fresh rain falling on a parched dry land. Soon the sounds of excitement turned to weeping, I mean deep weeping….and I woke up.
I could not shake that dream and I tossed and turned rest of the night — you know one of those dreams that you know is from Him. Rest of the night and into the morning I spent trying to figure out exactly what that means to me, to the body of Christ or even if it really was from Him or was it just one of those crazy dreams? About 5:00 am I felt the Holy Spirit say “ask me” and I had to laugh a little … I think I laughed out loud laying in bed as Diane slept. So I prayed and asked……
I know this is for me, but I feel like it’s for ALL OF US. We are always looking for “what do you want me to do?” or “What is your plan for my life?” You know we want God to show us our future, speak it clear as day as to what he wants from us for the next 50 years….I believe he has called us all to GREATNESS and mighty things. But He calls out ONE MOMENT at a TiME for all of us!!
In the Bible he called out many men and women that have done amazing things but it was always one moment at a time and as they followed him there life became His fully. For me, man I am not a young man any longer, I’m always telling God how He has called me, what is your plan? I want to do this and I want to do that……My time is short God what is YOUR plan? I envision myself doing great things and going out of this life with a bang…..when are you going to bust a move God?
I told Him 3 years ago I am willing to do whatever you ask and if you ask me to never preach again I am willing…. I meant what I said……I am willing. God is showing me that He calls out movements in my life and they are very important moments…. grab hold of them and be all that He has called me to be. These moments could look so many different ways…. as small as smiling at someone, it could be preaching a sermon, visiting someone, praying, giving, being a servant…. this is the LIEFSTYEL of a believer but within this life there are moments that are life changing, kingdom building, transforming moments.
I will keep searching out the answer to this dream… but at 7:30 am I feel like I’ve got a pretty good insight on why he gave it to me. I am humbled and thankful. And I do believe that this is for ALL OF US!!
Now go out and have an EPIC day today
