For many, we see our life as a blurred image as likened in a mirror but He promises soon if we faint not we will also see very clearly what He has done throughout our life. Beloved at present our knowledge is incomplete but one day we will understand as God has complete knowledge of us and knows all things. 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
God the author of life
Tom, 15 months old
Dearly beloved, while you were yet in your mothers womb I knew you. Before you were created I knew you. In My mind and in My heart you already existed. I loved you with a passionate unconditional love. I am the author of life, I am the giver of life. I make no mistakes. Each and every person born either premature or full term is within My knowledge. I make no mistakes. The color of your eyes, the formation of your lips when you smile,every tear you'll ever cry are mine. They are My creation, you are My creation. You are wonderfully and fearfully made My child. Psalm 139:1-24 I give life, I have breathed life into you, I birthed you in My own image and likeness. My glory resides within you My little one and you know it not. What is My glory? Why all My promises. All My hopes and all My dreams My little one. I did not create an imperfect life but a perfect one. All the promises of God are yea and amen are they not? Within you lays a dormant future which in time will be awakened. Piece by piece, here a little there a little until you can walk on your own. Do not fear baby steps or steps of the unknown for around each corner of your life are places, people and things which you have never seen or experienced before. Baby steps My child are the things you take when upon first you are discovering and exploring your environment but then when confidence finds its place within your heart and mind you will soar. I promise.
Dare to Dream
Tom, 5 yrs with his first record player
You are such an incredible person. Intuitive, delightful with every turn. Please be careful My child as you are growing to not let circumstances dictate to you to rob you of your dreams. I have created you to fly emotionally and spiritually and yet today someone hurt you. Forgive them My child, it is within you do so for you are like Me. It's within your power to forgive. Let them go. Matthew 6:14 I love when you sing, I love when you laugh. I love when you dream, dreams are of Me My child. Do you think I the Alpha and the Omega, the One who knows the beginning from the end would leave anything undone or incomplete? I am omniscient and I am omnipresent My child, I know and knew every dream you would ever have. Your dreams and visions are not hap hazard but preordained because they were already built into your life. My child, think about this for a moment. If a man builds a simple machine, places all his time and energy into making sure it performs accordingly before he sells or gives it to the public, then how much more thought have I put into you? Does the man who built the machine have infinite knowledge of the machine? Since he built it, then he would be in a sense omniscient would he not? This same person also has a preordained knowledge that the consumers do not have and yet you would not look at the inventor or creator as not possibly possessing this ability. You would accept it. Just accept the fact you don't know what omniscient means and you won't hold it against Me if I use terms such words as predestination. Do not get bound up or caught up by the lack of your understanding concerning predetermination or predestination. Just dream My child and know that I am watching and listening.
Visions are of God
Tom, 35 years old
When you weren't looking. When you were not expecting to be blessed this way I told you it was of Me. Together My child we walked through yet another door. Long gone are the days of your youth. Baby steps are mere photos hanging upon the wall but strangely reminiscent are those dreams of childhood. I told you My child I would bless you in due season if you faint not. The dreams and visions that held you captive in the night watches were of Me. The songs of deliverance you hear now have became medicine for the masses, no longer your wounds. Echoes of thunder in the distance remind you that I am near and coming closer still. I am in your dreams, I see your visions. The seeds of the very thoughts were assigned by Me to become fruitful in their due season if you fainted not. My child your life has become a work of obedience and not of sacrifices. I honor your obedience even unto death of self, self fulfillment, and self gratifying promises. My child I have taken your dreams and visions and turned them on their side, emptying them of yourself lest you should boast about what you have done. I am the God who has given you the dream, let Me bring it to pass in My own way in My own time. Joseph, Moses, Abraham,David and yes even Jesus had to submit to the fact that when they didn't know how or when I always had the plan of their and your life in the palm of My hand. I will never let it or you go until it comes to pass. Work with Me, Submit your visions and plans to Me. Romans 8:1-36
God says, It's not over yet
Promises of yesterday fall behind you like leaves cascading from their lofty boughs. Memories of people, places and events are organized like fine books upon the shelves of your mind. Your heart is full with the promises of God and yet there is still more. My child as your life has progressed and changed so has your anointing and your gifting. Once you were a child, thought like a child and acted like a child but one day you grew up putting away childish things. You were not even aware of the day you became a man. 1 Corinthians 13:11-13 I have not forgotten you nor are we quitting. Although your feet have seen many miles, your body carries many scars and your heart has been pierced through so many times, we are not finished yet. We have only just begun. With age comes wisdom, with youth comes zeal. With age comes a steadfast confidence that only a time tested soldier understands. You are a warrior for Christ My child. You are no where near done, we are no where near finish. Gone are the days, the hopes the dreams and grandeur of youth but they have been replaced by wisdom infused with passion.
Love knows no age.
Passion is a fire that burns not just within your soul now but your spirit. My child your steadfastness, your confidence no longer resides in your fleshly ability. You know and understand what it is to be crucified with Christ. Galatians 2:20 Do not despise your age nor forget your past but hold onto the promises I have given to you since your youth. I have not forgotten nor have I lied. I am not a man but God who knows and understands all things. I have created all things to be beautiful in My time and your in your season. When is the appropriate time? You will know the season has come when you bloom with the promises of God not just at your back but all around you. Look up and see the salvation of your Lord. What I have said, spoken, whispered into the ear of a newborn I will bring to pass. My words are life. They inspire, they thrill, they tantalize even the old to think they can do the work of the young. Psalm 92:1-15 Although Sarah laughed behind the tent My promises were true and in due season they beheld the promise of God, so shall you My child.
In your latter years give to Me your sword, let Me re-fire it. Give me those bygone dreams and watch Me heal, fix, deliver and set the captives free once more through you. You are not finished My child, there are those who have been predetermined to be in your future... they need you. Are you with Me?
