Don’t Despise Small Beginnings
This may seem strange that I would entitle the post with such a phrase as the one I used. However, it is not the first time that the Lord has spoken this very thing to me. We, at least me, tend to compare what we are doing for the Lord with what those in large popular ministries are doing and we judge whether or not we, again at least me, are a success or failure along the same lines. The Word itself admonishes us not to compare ourselves with others.
2Co 10:12(12) For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
With that said I am going to re blog a dream I had approximately 3 years ago because part of the dream has come true and partly because I have some fresh revelation. The dream is as as follows:
In this dream, I was at a place with people in it. I don’t feel that the place was important, however. I remember getting ready to leave when I was asked to take 12 babies home with me. I wasn’t able to because I had 3 children in the backseat who were mine, but I did not recognize any of them, just that they were mine. I remember not wanting to leave these kids, in fact, I even held one of them. As I was leaving, my wife pulled up in her car. I remember that I wanted to return for the 12 and I didn’t want to leave them there.
I’m not sure about the meaning of the kids in my car. But, from what I understand about the number 12 in biblical terms, it stands for perfection of government. I knew in my dream, as I do now that the babies were /are important. I feel that the Lord was intrusting me with a precious position of his, both the kids in the car and the other 12.
The 3 kids in this dream are, I believe the grandsons of my wife and I. Because of a situation that I won’t get into here my wife, myself and my son, the boys father, are the only ones allowed to watch them. It is like the Lord put 3 little lives into our hands. While this may not seem like a ministry to sum it is to the Lord. I was praying about the Lord using us in ministry last night and I was shown a vision of 3 diamonds and they were in my possession. I was a steward and not an owner. Something that must be remembered in ministry. There’s no such thing as, “my ministry”. Furthermore, diamonds, from my understanding are the most precious and costly stone known to man. Three is what I am entrusted with right now. 12 was the additional in the dream. This can, I believe, be spiritual as well as physical. The bottom line that I see is that even with my wife’s car there was no possible we could have taken all 12 babies plus the 3 already in my car. This I take to mean that the ministry is bigger than we can humanly handle and it will be the Lord who makes things happen.
