The best has not been told about your story. God will take you from obscurity to prominence, from Marah to Naomi because of His great mercies. All your good dreams shall come to pass in Jesus’ name.
Some contemporary scholars have described dreams as mere myths; figments of people’s imaginations and sometimes illusions. To them, dreams are fantasies, pictorial metaphors which were semi-consciously put together by human senses. However, the truth is that in these last days, God is revealing more of Himself through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. God speaks through His word; prophesy, preaching, through your wife, husband, children and yes, through dreams. Numbers 12:6, ‘’…if there be prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak to him in a dream” BUT NOT ALL DREAMS COME FROM GOD!!!
Psalm 126:1-5 is testimonial and prophetic. It is about the deliverance of God’s people from Babylon back to Zion. This month you will leave Babylon and enter God’s desired Zion in Jesus name!
“WHEN the Lord turned the captivity of Zion… (v.1a),” There is a divine timing for your turn-around. There is a time appointed for your release. It is now! Total emancipation from captivity is not subject to probability. It is certain. It is a matter of time and the time is now. We can’t really explain why the people of Zion went into captivity. It may be based on their sin or disobedience? But then, one thing is clear, their movement into captivity was not for their destruction but to teach them a lesson. It was not for the purpose of consuming them as dross is consumed in a fire but for their transformation just as gold passes through fire so that it could shine better. God’s plan for you is that you be like Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18). It also says, “When the Lord” it does not say “If the Lord.” This means that there is a time for everything. There is an appointed time for your deliverance. It also tells of who worked out their deliverance. The Lord is the only person who can turn any situation around. It is only He who has the power to set any captive free. No matter how much you look up to man, if the Lord does not help you, no one else can. It was after the Lord stepped into their situation that there was a turnaround. It also explains to us that there is no help from any man that can last long like that help that comes from God. In the same vein, no victory is ever achieved by the strength of human arms or the whims of the human mind (Ecclesiast 9:11).
Imagine how long Sarah had been held in the captivity of barrenness but when God stepped in, she became the mother of a child. She whom the world had written off that nothing good could ever come out of her now became one that people gathered to celebrate. How about Hannah and Elizabeth? These were held captive to the spirit of barrenness as well, but just when God remembered them and came to their aid, their story changed. It was as though they were dreaming because no one expected that something good could still come out of their lives.
Joseph had been in prison for not less than thirteen years until God stepped in. Imagine in a strange land, with his Jewish accent and no Green card, where he had no family or relatives, he was crowned as the second-in-command to Pharaoh. The dream he had for a long time ended up coming to pass. This is to tell you that it is never too late for God to do whatever He has decided to do for you. For years the Israelites were in captivity in the land of Egypt, but when God stepped in, they got their deliverance
Joseph was constantly dreaming. He was a dreamer per excellence. It was not a dream of defeat, downfall, disgrace or death. It was a dream of greatness, lifting, distinction, dominion and glory. The dreams became a vicious cycle and he couldn’t keep it to himself alone. One day, he found himself on the throne where he had dreamt about. His brethren came to him and bowed down to him exactly the way he had dreamt it. May all your good dreams come through in Jesus’ name.
