Dream of Maturity
On a recent weekend, I was reminded of a dream the Lord gave me that was quite profound. It was actually made up of two dreams, both with the same exact details on the same night. I don't believe it was just for me, but for the entire Body of Christ. I also believe we are in the time of the manifestation of this dream.
As I awoke from these dreams, pondering about how I had dreamt the same dream twice in one night, the Lord reminded me of a Scripture found in Genesis 41:32 that says, "And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass." With this confirmation, I felt prompted to share my dreams with you.
The first dream began with a scene in which I had two babies. Both babies were newborns, and both were in bassinets. I would take each baby out, one at a time, feed it and change it, and then put it back in its bassinet. Several times I did this with each baby.
There was also a man in the dream with me, directing me in what to do and when. Suddenly, I knew it was time for the babies to mature. I then took one of the babies out of the bassinet and placed it on its stomach on the floor. I knew when I did this that it would strengthen the baby, and it would soon be crawling and then walking. Somehow I knew this would strengthen the baby for what was laying ahead. As I did all this, the man stood by watching me and nodding his approval.
In my dream, I went to sleep while the baby was on the floor, strengthening its body. The very next day that baby had matured into a full-grown man. It was supernatural and awesome! It happened suddenly as if time had been sped up!
I woke up from the first dream, then went back to sleep and had the same dream again. As I awoke the second time, I knew the Lord was showing me that there is a "baby" in my life that will mature and come to a time of fullness and fruition overnight I believe that in dreams, a baby can represent many things: ministry, business, a desire, a prayer. And God was showing me that this "baby" would literally mature overnight.
Focus Our Vision
As I began to seek the Lord about the importance of putting the baby on the floor, I studied the reasons for this action, and I gained insights into my dream. Here is what was revealed to me: First, when you place a baby on the floor on its stomach, it must look up! As it does, its eye muscles get stronger and the baby's visual development goes to a new level.
This bore witness with me, as the Lord has been telling me for days, "Lift up your eyes..." As we look up to God and place our focus on Him, our vision in the spirit will become stronger and stronger, and our visual development will go to a new level in God. I knew this was part of what God was showing me in the dream.
Strengthen Our Spiritual Body
When you put a baby on its stomach, it strengthens its neck, shoulders and its core. I believe the neck represents our will, it represents stubbornness, self-will and unbelief. This too made sense to me, as God has had me studying hardness of heart which breeds unbelief. I also understand that shoulders in dreams can mean "burden bearer" and our core represents our inner man.
So, what do I feel God is saying to me? I believe He is telling me that there is a "baby" in my life or the life of the ministry that can mature overnight; it can come to fruition overnight. This overnight maturity or coming to a time of fullness, is God's desire and plan and He intends to establish it in my life.
However, the baby needs strength in some areas. It needs to look up! To look only to God for this supernatural harvest, this supernatural time of maturity, I must get rid of all unbelief and self-reasonings as to how it will happen. I need to put the burden of it on God as I look to Him and focus on strengthening my inner man.
Angels to Help Reap Our Harvest
As for the man standing nearby in the dream, I believe he was an angel of God. I believe God has given us angelic hosts to help us bring our harvest to fruition. I believe angels are necessary as it is a supernatural event. Matthew 13:39 says, "...and the reapers are the angels."
God Has Supernatural Maturity for Us All
I don't believe this dream was just for me. I believe you too may have a ministry, a book, a business or a dream that you feel has been in a time of infancy way too long, and it is time for it to come to maturity, to come to fruition, and to come to a time of fullness.
It's time for you look to God to bring overnight maturity and fruition. It is time to strengthen yourself in the inner man and get rid of all doubt and unbelief. It's time to check your heart and make sure it has not become cold and indifferent to the things of God and the miracles of God. If your heart has become hardened to the supernatural ways of God, it is time to do something about it.
Friends, we are in a supernatural time where our God is ready to do supernatural things, and I want you to be a part of it. I want you to see your harvest. I want you to see your dreams and prayers come to fruition. It's time to see it happen right before our eyes! Trust God for the supernatural once again.
Believe God for things to mature and come to fullness, even overnight. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
