while spending some time in prayer and worship, God gave me a picture relating to a vision he gave me on Sunday morning at church.
in my vision i saw a large field, ready for harvest…but something was wrong. the stalks were all dying and bent over, it was as though they had been very poorly tended and were almost out of life. then i saw two young girls, completely radiant with the joy of the Lord on their faces, run down a hill into this field and as they reached the dying stalks of wheat in the field, they began to laugh and sing and dance in praise to God. as the girls danced, the stalks began to be healed and grew upright, coming to full fruit. and it was the time of the harvest!! but the girls kept on dancing and more and more wheat was being restored as they praised and sang and danced in joy. pretty soon, the wheat itself started changing into other people who began to dance also. however, some of the people who began to dance turned from the field and gazed up the hill the girls had come from and instead of continuing to dance, they left the field altogether and ventured up the mountain where they found MORE people. the people on the mountain appeared to be the same as the girls below but something about them was different… the people on the mountain were watching the girls dance and instead of joining in, they scorned and mocked them, judging what they looked like, how foolish they seemed! soon enough, the people who had left the field began acting as those who were on the mountain, turning cold and dark. the whole mountain began to be covered with a dark grey shadow whereas the field was glowing with the radiance of the sun.
what i believe God is saying through this vision is that we, His people on the mountain, need to NOT be afraid and to reach out to others for the harvest is plenty but the workers, they are few. dancing might push us out of our comfort zone, and those gazing in on our lives may think we are stupid and foolish but what joy we can share and what life we can bring when we only obey and follow His word!
