A Vision, Jan 1, 2016

I was alone on the shore of the ocean. The waves were pounding upon my back. I tried to stand but they were strong. My face was in the sand.  I stood and tried to run but my feet buried deep as the water pulled. The waves continued to beat. I cried for help. I cried out to God. I began to see a Rock behind me. It was big and tall and wide, able to stand and endure the beating surf.  I leaned against it and then I felt His arms. As the next wave crashed over the rock, Jesus said to me, “The punishment that brought you peace was upon Me”.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; It is God’s gift.

2 Samuel 22:31-32 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?

I see you seeking out others thinking they will be a strength to you. You begin to idolize them and follow hard after them in a way that you should only follow Me. When I allow you to see their weaknesses and faults you are broken and hurt. You come up fighting and judging with blame and accusations. Anytime you lay on a foundation of sand it will be washed out from under you. I am your foundation. I am a Rock that withstands the storms. After you confess your idolatry and after the pain of your disappointment recedes, after the death of a thing, new life emerges. I will enable you to love what IS not what you thought should be. And through this Christ-Like love a transformation occurs because LOVE never fails. Don’t give up when all feels lost because in this place of winter, this place of disappointment, at the end of your hopes is where I do My greatest works! And you will reap a harvest if you do not give up! ~ God
