Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
Do you ever have dreams and visions? In the last days, more servants of the Lord will dreams and visions.
Write them down so you will remember them. Write them plainly and legibly. Write the date you had it. If you have an interpretation or meaning, write it down also.
Godly dreams and visions will come to pass. It may take time but wait for it.
Your dream or vision may not worldwide ramifications. It may just be for you or someone close to you.
I had a few visions many years ago, most about the church I pastor. At the time, I did write them down.
And you really don’t need to wait for a dream or vision. Perhaps you could journal, blog, or keep a daily diary of your relationship with the Lord.
Write down scripture you read or a prayer need.
Maybe write down when you feel God answering a prayer or a small Godly miracle in your life.
It’s great to look back and see what was going on a year, two years, or five years ago.
This Morning Thought blog is a journal of sorts.
Here’s one from October 2008.
I got the finger the other day though I don’t think it was intended for me.
As I pulled out on the highway this red Mustang drove by in the other lane.
I noticed up ahead that a Camaro pulled into the path of the Mustang, causing the driver to slow down and then veer into the right lane in front of me.
The Camaro then went into the middle turning lane, which caused me to pull into the left lane and go around the poking Mustang.
As I pulled up even with them both the guy driving the Mustang gave “the finger” and though I think it was intended for the Camaro, I’m was blocking his view and was the only one to see it.
Not long after His resurrection, Jesus got the finger.
It wasn’t from the high priest, a Sadducee, a Pharisee, or a Roman soldier.
It came from one of the disciples.
Here’s what happened.
All of the disciples were in a room when Jesus appeared and talked with them.
Well, all of them but one, he was doing something else but when he returned he couldn’t believe that Jesus had actually been there.
The next week Jesus returned and said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” John 20:27
When Jesus got the finger from Thomas in His hands, Thomas’ doubt disappeared.
So next time someone gives YOU the finger, remember that Jesus died so their sins and attitude could be cleaned up.
