I asked the question today, “What’s The LORD saying or showing you about the first three months of 2023?”
As one or two comments started to drift in, The LORD asked me the same question, and without waiting for me to reply, He took me into a Vision.
I was in a dark place. It was very dark, but I knew in my spirit that I was walking in a long tunnel. My first thought was of a now defunct railway tunnel, if only because there appeared to be no rails running through the tunnel.
This set me at ease as my imagination showed me trains rushing through the tunnel, and me clinging to a wall in order to be relatively safe!
So I stopped wandering around, because I had no idea where I was headed in either direction. I was just there — wandering aimlessly in the dark!
I asked The LORD what He was showing me? Instead of answering me He pointed out a tiny pinpoint of light.
So small, it was barely discernible, but because it was the only light source in sight, it made its presence obvious.
Then, for some reason, I turned my head in the opposite direction. Another pinpoint of light! Another light source, a long way off, but again, clearly visible.
Then He spoke. “Either direction will get you out, but one direction is My Direction, while the other is not!”
“Oh great, so how do I know which to go to?”, I asked.
“Listen for My Directions!” came the response, “Follow Me, and I will get you to safety. Get it wrong, and it won’t be so easy!”
I stopped and listened — nothing obvious, but in my ‘knower’, I felt it right to head one way. I felt at peace!
“You choose correctly, you hear Me well!” came His small still Voice.
I came back to my armchair at that moment and began to interpret what I’d seen. It was an odd Vision, full of unknowns and questions, yet I felt strangely at peace with it all.
It came to me spiritually that it really didn’t matter where the tunnel was, or even that it was a tunnel. The important thing was that I was groping about in the dark.
It didn’t matter which way I went, as there was light at both ends of the tunnel. The important thing was for me to take my direction from The LORD rather than blundering into the unknown, blindly accepting the first light I saw as the solution to my dilemma!
These next few months have been prophesied as the darkest yet and this Vision appears to confirm that, while at the same time showing us that it’s all catered for in The LORD’s Plans for us.
Turn to Him and listen to Him but almost more importantly, do whatever He says, when He says it.
This coming year, is a year of obedience to God’s Voice!
