Here I am at the bottom of the sea with Jesus and the Treasure chest. It’s been a somewhat exhausting swim, but valuable in growth and learning! Now the goal is within reach. The front of the chest has buckles holding it shut tight. Releasing these, and already escaping from opening cracks is a bright golden light. Gently lifting the lid, amazement fills my soul. What is contained inside looks like parchment encased in translucent golden balls.
Touching one golden globe sends an electric sensation through my fingers. A vision fills my mind. A person I know with a fiery wound in her chest. Tell me Lord, is that physical or emotional? “Mary, Holy Spirit will lead you; go to Him; He will reveal to you why she is the one who needs prayers. His love flows as He downloads other details of the situation.” My prayers will be a lifesaving moment, a healing touch of the Father for her. What a wonderful privilege to work with the power of God to help people and bring His love and salvation to them.
Eyes closed, I meditate on the Holy Spirit asking for Him to pray through my mouth. Each golden globe contains a plan, a task for me to perform, each laid out along a path. This is the supernatural strategy of God for my life, an objective of propose and power. Raising with the globes through the sea, my head crests the surface, and I eagerly watch the globes movements; some are settling like buoys, and others moving toward land. I try to keep eyes on them, but their speed is beyond my ability to follow. Lord now what? Smiling, Jesus looks tenderly and reminds me to trust. “All things will come to you at the proper time. Everything My Father has for you, you will find. Fear not!”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord,
‘plans for well-being and not for trouble,
to give you a future and a hope.
I have found the heart of God, the love for His children and His will for my life. He has assigned me the task of bringing His Word of healing and love to teach His children how to come into relationship with Him. Whispered words fill my spirit:
“Mary you have found your desire. Your seeking has pleased Me. As you walk your journey I will lead and guide you to the places and people who are your assignments. Trust in Me. As you travel I will draw closer to you, and you will live in my Presence. I am your ever present help.”
Psalm 46 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
