When I changed the name of this blog to A Prophetic Walk, it was strategic. This walk is not an easy one. The Lord showed me a vision years ago, that I did not choose. It was sovereign. I could not have picked this for myself in a million years. But God said it, I didn’t.
For years now, it just did not seem to fit. It just seems that what I have seen is just not going to happen. But with time I have begun to understand that God has reserved me for the new, not the old. So there is no way I can connect with the old.
Sometimes we don’t understand why people connect better with others, but it’s because they have spirits that are alike. There is only one problem. If you connect with people who fit in your life now, they may not fit in your life 5 years from now. It’s like an undelivered man selecting a mate in his undelivered state. He may want a model now, but in a few years, he will need a woman of God.
Well back to the vision. God let me know that something could happen and get really close, BEFORE my vision came to pass. No surprises here at all. No, I am not happy about it, but in another sense I am. If God withholds something or somebody from your life now, it’s because they are not ready for you and you are not ready for them.
I had a dream about a door and as soon as I began to move toward that door (which I have done NUMEROUS times in the past) I saw a snake, and I went back home. It’s not that God didn’t want me to go, or that I was not willing. It’s just that darn snake. lol You can’t trust a snake. God is all about protecting his people, especially his handmaids.
1 Kings 18:21
GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
21 Elijah stood up in front of all the people and asked them, “How long will you try to have it both ways? If theLord is God, follow him; if Baal is God, follow him.” The people didn’t say a word.
1 Kings 18:21
New International Version (NIV)
21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”
But the people said nothing.
