My Sunday morning began around 5:00 am, I was awaken oddly with an excruciating headache on one side of my head. It was unbearable to have the light on or my eyes open, so I got up to get some water and then laid back down. I laid back down and got on social media and was quickly reminded of something I needed to pray about. So I shut down my phone and went into prayer...I don't remember the ending of the prayer, because I fell asleep soon after. The rest was not too pleasant, but within a hour or so I woke up again still in pain and from a dream that God immediately gave revelation and meaning.
I had a dream I was with a group of people and throughout the course of the day, I had refused to go along to get along. I did not compromise or follow what they did. Everything they did, I did not do, yet I watched in question because I knew it wasn't what I was supposed to do. I didn't do what they did and It was obvious that I was with the group, but I stood out among them.
The group was led to a great big field filled with fresh fruit and vegetables visible to anyone from a distance. I remember taking my time getting there and seeing the field from a distance. As I got closer, I was able to see that the field contained fruit and vegetables that I was allergic too and could not eat. What was in the ground had the potential to cause pain, hurt, or kill me. So as others were preparing to follow the leader, I stood on the sidelines refusing to partake in what was about to take place.
The "leader" then looked in my direction and said to me, "Enemies against us do not win."
I then boldly stated: "To think of me as such when I am not one explains how you really feel about me. Secondly, any enemy of mine will NOT triumph over me!"
I then watched the leader and her followers pick fruit and vegetables out of the ground blindly without knowing what they were picking up. As they took the fruit and vegetables from the ground, as soon as it came out of the ground, it was all dark, dead and covered in soil.
I then stood on the outskirts holding a toddler little girl in my arms watching what had just taken place and I woke up.
So this is what God began to immediately revealed...
You will be among crowds, groups, and in the midst of leaders and those in authority, but if it's NOT God, do not bow! Do what God says, and even though your obedience will be put on trial and to the test, stand firm on what God has said!
He reminded me of the story in Daniel 3 when his friends refused to bow to the king...and then he reminded me of Daniel himself and his character as a man of excellence who was sent to prison because of his faithfulness and excellence towards all that God had given him (go figure huh?). So, yes concerning the things of God his enemies were looking for something to accuse him of. (Daniel 6- it's a GOOD story, make sure your read it)
Listennnnnnnnn...The very thing your enemies will use to try and hurt, harm and kill you is the very thing that will not prosper for them! He will cause that thing to turn immediately in your Favor, but for their FALL! What do I mean? Well, what they wanted to use to kill you would have given them "life"...BUT in turn will not be able to give them what they want or what they expected!
God then reminded me of Micah 5:9 that states, "Your hand shall be lifted against your adversaries, and your enemies shall be cut off (destroyed)."
Hear God... because you refused to bow and stand in the face of your enemy and declare God's WORD, you shall live and not die! Annnnnnd the very thing God gave you to birth and and raise up and entrusted you with (toddler symbolization),is going to GROW (prosper)! I am writing this in pain, but the weapon formed will NOT propser!
It is this praise you shall declare: Psalm 30:1-3:
I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
(2) O Lord my God, I cried out to You,
And You healed me.
(3) O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave;
You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit...
I dare you to stand and look the enemy in the face and declare, "you tried it!"
