A Dream And Word By Ruth McCormick And Her Son Mickey
I want to share a dream my youngest son had over the weekend. He came to me and said, â€śMom I have a dream I need you to interpret that I had last nightâ€ť
My son has planted a garden and it is coming up great.
However, in his dream he walked out to it and it was all dried upâ€¦no fruit or vegetablesâ€¦just dried up twigs and leaves. He went back out later that same day and he was going to water it in hopes that he could bring them back, but when he walked out there it had already come alive. It was full of fruit and vegetables.
It inspired and excited me because I immediately heard, “In My time I will do a quick work”.
When it is a kyros timeâ€”the timing of Godâ€” it will happen, in spite of human efforts or the lack of human efforts.
The plants were deadâ€”having no life just as those things we have hoped for and dreamed aboutâ€¦just as those things we have waited for to happen.
The Body of Christ has become at times so disappointed because they haven’t seen their hopes, dreams or promises manifest…haven’t seen what they where waiting forâ€¦but was it their time?
Did they grow weary waiting on Gods’ timing and in turn become upset with God when He denied them their hearts’ desires (Galatians 6:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:13) Did they grow weary when all He was really saying was “It’s not time”. Are you growing wearyâ€¦.Am I?
Did they grow weary and walk in unbelief when the whole time they were only sitting at a yellow light thinking it is was a red lightâ€¦taking the wait for denial. How about you? Have you been seeing red?
And when my son walked back out to his garden with a watering can in hand to water it himselfâ€¦to bring it back to life, it was already alive and fruitful. And it was not from any of his own effort (Zechariah 4:6).
This is the day of grace and abundant life, and this grace will not have anything to do with human effort. For man shall not get the Glory! Those things we have been waiting onâ€¦things we thought were dead and gone, God is now speaking into. God is speaking life to wombs, dreams, marriages and lives…speaking life to what was once dead. He is now calling you and I…calling our dreamsâ€”our promises right of the grave. And just like He called Lazarus out of the grave He is doing the same thing for us and our dreams…our promises. He is calling us. He is commanding…He is saying, “Come Forth!”
So there maybe something you have gotten disappointed about in past seasons because the Kingdom promises have not manifested in fruitfulness and abundance. But know this, in “His timing He will do a quick work”.
Therefore do not grow weary in doing good for He is good and His love endures forever. Most of all, He is not a man that He should lie. Have faith…have hope, for you are coming forth in His time…and the substance of things hoped for will be…faith will be.
