This morning the Lord showed me a picture of a field of flowers. It was beautiful and serene, there was just a hint of a gentle breeze as the flowers softly swayed. The field was a gorgeous display of color, some I recognized and some I have no words for. In the distance I could see snow capped mountains, with wispy fog along the base. It was neither cold, nor warm, I was comfortable. There was a blessed sense of peace. I bent down to smell the flowers and was overwhelmed by the beautiful sweet and spicy fragrance of each one. Even though there were flowers of the same species, each one had a different and unique scent, yet the scents did not clash with each other. I found them to be complementary. I heard the Spirit say “Pick one” so I did. As I held it in my hand, marveling at its beauty, I noticed it had my name and the word “write” on it. I picked another and another and another until I had a bouquet of different flowers, each with my name and a word.
“What does this mean?”
I heard the Lord say “This is the field of your dreams. Each dream is a planting of My Spirit within you; some have already been fulfilled, some are yet to come, and others will be fulfilled in your seed. Every dream and desire of your heart is here in this field. Even the weeds serve my purpose. Look around, though they seem the same, each flower in a species is a rendition of the dream I am fulfilling for you. Every step you take when you dream of the next level is a sweeter and better version of the one behind you. They are all here. Dream big, Child, I have so much more for you.“
I don’t think I can adequately describe what this vision means to me, and not only me, but to each of us. How many dreams have we had which we thought were dead and we would never see come to fruition? How many dreams did we have we are glad were not fulfilled? King David wanted to build a house for the Lord, but the Lord told him he was not the one who would build it. Another in his lineage would (1 Chronicles 17). And the Lord fulfilled this. If He does it for one, how could He not do it for another? Dare to dream, and dare to dream big! Don’t give up on your dreams, all things are possible with God!
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires (Psalm 37:4 NLT).
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12).
