Seek Him Now
This past Monday before 5am God woke me up. I was still very tired and could’ve easily gone back to sleep. However, I couldn’t with all God was flooding to my heart. It was only the second time ever that God spoke to me so clearly in a dream. He literally told me everything I was to preach about this coming Sunday. So, I sat up in my bed and wrote down every single word God told me.
The last God dream I had was back in 2007. At that time, God made it very clear that one day I would be preaching to masses of people. In that dream, I could see every tribe and nationality throughout the world. I’ve never forgotten how overwhelmed I felt by all God was revealing. I didn’t understand then and I don’t know fully understand now, how I’m supposed to carry out such a big vision. Fortunately, it’s not my job to figure anything out. My job is to seek God and go where He leads.
I found one thing in common with both of these God dreams. They both came in seasons I was seeking God more than ever before. I wasn’t looking for just a religious experience. I was looking for even deeper fellowship with God. I was in total pursuit of God’s perfect heart and perfect will. It makes me wonder what God dreams I may have missed in the past. After all, it is the way we’re all called to seek the Lord if He is to be found by us.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the LORD. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes.” Jeremiah 29:11-14
“In the last days,’ God says, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.” Acts 2:17
