An Overnight Harvest – Many Things Will Mature
and Come to Fruition Overnight
February 23, 2017
This past weekend the Lord gave me a dream that was quite profound. It was two dreams, with the same exact details on the same night. I don't believe this dream was just for me but for the entire Body of Christ.
As I awoke from these dreams and pondered that it was the same dream twice in one night, the Lord reminded me of a Scripture found in Genesis 41:32, "And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass."
Dream of Two Babies – First Dream
The first dream began with a scene in which I had two babies. Both babies were newborn and both were in bassinets. I would take each baby, out one at a time, feed and change them, then put each back in their bassinet. Several times I did this with each baby. Also there was a man in the dream with me, directing me in what to do and when.
I suddenly knew it was time for one of the babies to mature. I took it out of the bassinet and put it on its stomach on the floor. I knew when I did this that it would strengthen the baby and it would soon be crawling and then walking. Somehow, I knew this would strengthen the baby for what lay ahead. The man stood by watching me the entire time, nodding his approval. In my dream, I went to sleep while the baby was on the floor strengthening its body. The very next day that baby had matured into a full-grown man. It was supernatural and it happened suddenly – as if time had been sped up!
Dream of Two Babies – Second Dream
I woke up from the first dream and then went back to sleep and had the same dream again.
As I awoke the second time, I knew the Lord was showing me that there is a "baby" in my life that will mature overnight and come to a time of fullness and fruition overnight. In a dream a baby can represent many things: ministry, business, a desire, a prayer. Therefore, God was showing me that this thing would mature literally overnight.
I began to seek the Lord about the importance of putting the baby on the floor. As I studied the reasons for this action, I gained insight into my dream.
First, when you place a baby on the floor on its stomach, it must look up! As it does, its eye muscles get stronger and the baby's visual development goes to a new level. This bore witness with me as the Lord has been telling me for days to "lift up your eyes..." As we look up to God and place our focus on Him, our vision in the spirit will become stronger and stronger and our visual development will go to a new level.
Also, when you put a baby on its stomach it strengthens its neck, shoulders and its core. The neck represents our will, as it represents stubbornness, self-will and unbelief. This made sense to me as God also has me studying "hardness of heart" which breeds unbelief. Shoulders in dreams mean "burden bearer."
So, what do I feel God is saying to me? I believe He is telling me that there is a "baby" in my life or the life of the ministry that can mature overnight – that can come to fruition overnight. That this overnight maturity or coming to a time of fullness is God's desire and plan and He intends to establish it in my life. However, the baby needs strength in some areas.
First of all, it needs to look up! To look only to God for this supernatural harvest – this supernatural time of maturity. Furthermore, I must get rid of all unbelief and self-reasonings as to how it will happen. I need to put the burden of it on God as I look to Him and focus on strengthening my inner man.
As for the man standing nearby in the dream. I believe he was an angel of God. I believe God has given us angelic hosts to help us bring our harvest to fruition. I believe angels are necessary as this is a supernatural event. Matthew 13:39 says, "...and the harvesters are angels."
I don't believe this dream was just for me but for the Body. I believe many may have a ministry, a book, a business or a dream that you feel has been in a time of infancy way too long; and it is time for it to come to maturity, to come to fruition, and to come to a time of fullness.
It's time for you look to God to bring overnight maturity and fruition. It is time to strengthen yourself in the inner man and get rid of all doubt and unbelief. It is time to check your heart and make sure your heart has not become cold and indifferent to the things of God and the miracles of God. If your heart has become hardened to the supernatural ways of God, it is time to do something about it. It's time to rid ourselves of all hardness of heart and ask God for a pliable heart – and as we do, our hearts can and will receive all God has for us.
Friends, we are in a supernatural time where our God is ready to do supernatural things. I want you to see your harvest, I want you to see your dreams and prayers come to fruition as much as you want to see it. It's time to see it happen right before our eyes! Trust God for the supernatural once again. Believe God for things to mature and come to fullness, even overnight. God is wanting to bring your "new thing" into a place of fullness...will you allow Him to?
Pray this prayer with me: Father, I repent of all doubt and unbelief. I ask You to soften my heart and remove all hardness and callousness from my heart. Cause me to trust like I have never been disappointed. Father, I receive this word today. I expect You to bring my promise, my baby, my ministry, my business and my dream to full fruition, supernaturally and overnight. I believe it God, and I receive it now by faith. In Jesus name. Amen.
Today, are you allowing your faith and your words to produce the outcome you desire to see? If have been speaking against what you want to ultimately see, God will turn it around for you. You must stop cursing your blessings with your words and instead, release the blessings with your words. It's so simple. Yet, sometimes we let this truth slip, just as I have. The walk of faith is a walk of discipline and sometimes we have to check ourselves to see if we need to change our words...it happens to all of us.
I want all of you to see your blessings – today, not tomorrow. Let's make sure our words line up with what we want to see, and when they do, let's be careful to keep it that way. God is listening and He has said, "Whatever I hear you say, that I will do to you."
