A vision from God
I’m not one to get all kinds of dreams, visions, or words of knowledge (at least not outside of the Bible), but I did get one giant dose of supernatural truth directly from the Lord himself one evening. I have more recently received one very important word of knowledge that bugs me to this day, and should bug anyone who believes in Christ Jesus, and can be found in the About Me drop down menu. That is a biggie, but I have had one experience of a vision that was from the Lord a whole lot of years ago that flat out changed my outlook on things that should otherwise cause for me to tear the hair out of my head.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve only had these kind of experiences a handful of times throughout my walk with Christ Jesus, and am not one to call everything a vision, or every dream prophecy, or that kind of thing. Most of what I talk about is the Word of God, and the revelations that the Holy Spirit has given me concerning it for whatever the reason. If you have been following this site as it’s progressed, you’ll know that this is a bit out of character.
Panic and Anxiety Attacks
Have I ever experienced either panic or anxiety attacks? Yep, check those off of the list of things to do. There was a period in my life several years ago that I was facing many different challenges, that at the time, was really wearing heavily on me. My prayers eventually started turning into nightly (also momentary) complaint sessions, as things around me were becoming much worse. The stress was taking its toll physically, giving me heart palpitations, panic attacks, and setting my nerves into a frenzy.
I think I’ll take the liberty here to coin a phrase “Panic Prayers”. Thinking back, so many times God ever heard from me in those days that’s all he ever heard. Panic prayers. I’d say that the best indicator to whether or not you’re partaking in panic prayers, is if you feel better or worse when you’re done.
On to the Vision!
One day after a good stretch of time dealing with a bunch of these problems, I was in prayer rifling through the usual list of complaints and grievances. I was given a vision that changed my perspective in all situations. I was wide awake when the following happened…
I was taken up through the house, being lifted face down so I could see the house getting smaller & smaller. Then the landscape smaller & smaller & picking up speed, I could see the country, as I’m now racing straight up. As if I was being zoomed right out of the planet, I saw the whole earth as it got smaller & smaller till eventually it became a small blue dot among the stars in space. I mean, I was really moving, it only took about 2 seconds to get to the point of just seeing the little dot of the earth.
As I was staring at the earth, squinting to try to see it as it was so far away, I heard a booming voice from behind me that shocked me when he said, “How big do your problems look now?” Right after I heard the voice I was spun around to see what was behind me, and from the left all the way to the right of my field of vision, I saw a massive city skyline. To this day I believe it was a glimpse into heaven. What else could it have been?
Just as soon as I realized what I was looking at, I snapped back into myself (or came too) & felt like a complete nut for the way I was anguishing over the things I was going through. The Lord that moment completely changed the way I look at life’s troubles that, for seasons, like to barrel through unexpectedly. All the problems were dealt with in one way or another, but notice that the Lord didn’t erase the things that needed to be faced, but instead changed me, not the circumstances.
Since then, I’ve faced (and still face) things that I never would have dreamed in a million years that I’d even need to worry about, never mind see through. But that vision that the Lord gave me has never left, neither has his voice. And I’ve been taking it as all joy to learn to abound & abase being thankful in all things, praying constantly (Philippians 4:12 & 1Thessalonians 5:16-18). Trusting in Him and knowing that the Lord is faithful to be an ever-present help through any trial or trouble. All glory & thanks to the Lord Jesus!!! Amen
