I spent a little time with God this week asking him just what is he doing in this crazy time. Next thing I know he is showing me a vision. Bear in mind this is how God speaks to me personally. I’m not saying I’m an all-mighty prophet to the people. But, I think there was definitely something there for others besides me to know that God has not left us.
Here’s What I Saw
I was kind of hovering up above the clouds with Jesus. We were looking down at the earth. I could feel this love coming from him. It was big enough to cover all of the earth. And then he said to the world – “Do you think I have left you? Do you think I am still here?”
Then he smiled and said: “No. I have not left you. I am fighting for you. I hear all the prayers that are being spoken to me. I catch all of them in my hand and draw them up to me, and read each one. I am not a God that abandons his people or anyone who cries out to me”.
“What is happening in the world you ask? You say You want life to go back the way it was.” Then he said “I need you to wake up. I need you to know that there are people in this world, some of them next to you, that are dying. They need hope. I need you to extend your hand to them as an extension of my hand. So many of you have been hiding in your homes. You have treasures that you can share. You all have gifts. Use your gifts. That is what they are made for”.
How This Applies To Me
My next-door neighbor AND my across the street neighbors both have cancer. I just didn’t know what to do for them. I sometimes think that a grand gesture is what people need in a time like this. As I prayed about it I got the idea to simply create a get well, or thinking of you card, or baking some homemade bread for them. Just to let them know that there is kindness in the world and that someone cares.
I hope this inspired you to reach out to those around you. Don’t forget that you have amazing gifts that only YOU have. These gifts are meant to be used to love each other.
