In a Dream….
The Lord had me go down, swim down into a deep cave under water, and I began to dig out rocks which represented buried lies. (Years ago I went to a class taught by Missionary Marty Delmon. She wrote a book “Buried Lies” which goes into great detail about how buried lies affect our souls.)
The first rock I found was a rock representing unforgiveness, then fear, doubt, unbelief, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness and finally anger. As I dug them up it was too much for me to carry alone. I looked up and saw a man, “Peter” who took off his towel that was wrapped around his waist and jumped into the water. He brought me down nets for each one of the rocks. He helped me bring them up to Jesus who was now standing above by the pool of water.
He crushed the first stone of unforgiveness with one hand, the powder disintegrated into the clean pool, turning it into a milky white color. Jesus said, It’s milk – you are bathing in it and the water immediately turned warm. (Later I felt as if He were saying it is time to let go and grow up. “Get over it!” would be what my Pastor would say.
Next Jesus took a bat and began to hit each rock out into the depths of eternity never to return. He knocked every buried lie out of the earth and then I handed Him one last stone – Disappointment.
He said, “No more will you be disappointed. I cherish you, you are my pleasant one, my darling. Others might misunderstand you, but I know you, I created you, to be strong, strong enough to wait faithfully. Strong enough to weather the storms of disappointment and to love those that are embittered, even toward you.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but you are not hopeless, for I have created you for such a special time, just wait. I WILL to supply and finish every dream I STARTED in you, and if the dream was not from ME, then discard it, don’t count on it for it is only meant to DISTRACT and DISARM you from the tasks I have for you.
I WILL PUT MY STRENGTH IN YOU AND remember those lies are finished, destroyed, diminished and cast into outer darkness.
NO MORE shall oppression and grief have a hold on you (ISAIAH 54). I do not wish to destroy you, but only to build you up in MY most HOLY FAITH. Receive MY WORD, Receive MY WORDS. Receive and let your faith flourish. Look to me and none other.
Don’t let the enemy deceive you for I have released you, MY CINDERELLA RELEASED… Go forth in the name of the LORD and preach MY WORD. Be strong and of good courage!
