I asked the Lord this question recently and he reminded me of the many times that I have seen the dreams of others manifest about a certain situation and God told me this is no different. The manifestation is happening, but the end result will not be as the people think. It’s just that simple.
I have to admit, I really dislike having to go through this, but God told me, it is what is qualifying me for where He is taking me. This test is just one of many and I have to be strong enough to stand at the level He is taking me. Whew. It’s a hard thing. I feel like Mary. She was carrying Jesus, and no one believed that she was not wrong. Sometimes that is exactly how it is. But I have been on this journey for nearly 10 years now, and NOTHING God has told me, as not come to pass.
How is God going to do this? I’m not sure, but sometimes people have to see for themselves. It may seem intimidating, but it’s necessary. God may not give us ALL the details, but he we really don’t need them. All we need to know is that God is going to do it.
If He didn’t show me ahead of times through dreams and visions, I would have given up a long time ago.
New International Version (NIV)
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
