I feel pregnant with a vision from God and just like the creation of a new baby, this seed has lain dormant for a long season. Like Mary, I have pondered of it and even tried to forget about it, but time and time again the Lord has brought me back to the same place and every time the desire to bring this vision forth has grown stronger.
I’ve prayed about it, meditated on it and fought God over it but I now feel humbled and subdued; what will be though His Holy Spirit will be. Each time he has given me verses to endorse the vision like Joshua1:9, 1Chronicles 28:10 and 20 and now Habakkuk2:2.
I once asked my friend, Esther Baker, who is the author of “I once was a Buddhist Nun” what it was like to know when God wanted you to do something and she said it was like being pregnant. Well now I know what she means. I’ve been through the first trimester of feeling sick, scared and wondering what was happening, I’m in the second trimester of being happy and content with my condition, but all the time this seed is growing and sometime in the future, sometime quite soon this full grown baby is going to come out. Even if I wanted to stop it, I can’t because His ‘word will not come back void’ and who am I to even think of trying. I just thank God for the privilege of serving Him.
I only mention all of this because I need you dear friend to stand alongside me, to pray for me to honour God, to give Him all the glory and to submit to His mighty hand, however and whatever His will may be. Pray for guidance and for me to be prompt to obey because whatever He wants to do or say, a new born vision of God is on its way. Just wait and see!
