Habakkuk 2:2-3 King James Version (KJV)
2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
I have really struggled to write this post since it is so vision heavy and perhaps confusing. However, I know that this post might touch one person who needs to hear this. So here I go….
24th June 2018, I woke up to document a puzzling and detailed dream at around 7:30 am. The dream was different, and I knew there was a profound message woven in it. The details were intricate and surreal. The dream was that I was given a baby. I then asked God for further explanation about the dream, which I did receive over the next few months.
I initially thought the dream only had a spiritual meaning, perhaps regarding my ministry. With further revelation, I found out that the year 2019 was set to be the year of “multiple births”. I documented the dream and the significance to the new year here in my blog post.
In October of that year, I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I were not planning on having another baby, but we were elated with the promise of one! Looking back, I didn’t connect the dots yet as I honestly had resolved that the dream had one element only.
One day when I was driving home from work, God reminded me of the dream I had in 2018. He asked me to go back and look at the dream I documented. He asked me to look at the date of the dream. When I looked through my dream book, I started crying. The due date for my baby was 24th June 2019, exactly one year from the day of the dream. I cried so hard. Only God can speak so loudly yet gently at the same time.
I started to ask God; was I wrong to think that the dream had only one element (spiritual). Does this mean that I should abandon my ministry since that is what the dream wasn’t about? Should I remain at my job and forget about blogging and ministering? I was confused.
A few months later, God started to remind me about what he told me a few years back. He had said to me that when it was time to leave my job, I will KNOW for sure. Then he asked me what my start date at my current job was. I then immediately blurted, 24th June 2013. Then once I heard the date repeat once again, I sobbed. I sobbed so hard. It was indeed a God moment. When it came to naming our baby, we gave him a Christian name as well as a Tribal name. His tribal name loosely translates to “new beginnings”. This signifies the revelations that God gave me regarding the start of a new chapter in my life.
I know my chapter is only beginning, and I don’t have much to say regarding what to expect. I can only encourage all of you to stick close to God and listen to the Spirit! He is there, and he is speaking! You need to listen. He will speak to you the in the best way you can receive him. He can speak to you in a dream, through a homeless person, a cashier, etc. Ultimately, the best approach is to always tie back the messages to the word of God, which is truth and absolute. Don’t ignore that God dream or God idea. He is waiting for you to move when it is time. He is waiting for you to listen to divine instructions and embrace your destiny. He is with you and will walk with you if you allow him to! Your calling is connected to so many souls; you cannot afford to ignore it! You need to be obedient to our Lord so that you can not only find your fulfillment and destiny but so that you can help others towards their redemption road in the process!
