Not A Lie, A Dream

Not A Lie, A Dream by Kirk Hunt

So he said, “Call her.” When he had called her, she stood in the doorway. Then he said, “About this time next year you shall embrace a son.”

And she said, “No, my lord. Man of God, do not lie to your maidservant!”

2 Kings 4:15-16 NKJV
Please also read 2 Kings 4:11-17.

Her hands came off her hips and covered her mouth. Her piercing and knowing eyes were suddenly wide and full of tears. Elisha’s prophecy released the hidden dream of her heart. The dream lurched from its dark cell, or crypt, into the bright light of her heart.

In verse 13, she was a strong, self-assured woman. In verse 16, she was a tender, vulnerable girl. Our dreams have power. Especially the dreams that should have died.

There you are, building the Kingdom. You have not asked, or expected, a reward for your faithfulness. Our omniscient and omnipotent God will select an unlikely place and space to fulfill your dreams.

You may have forgotten your dream. Perhaps you thought the dream was dead. In His timing and power, your dream will emerge and prosper.

Your season is coming. A season when you will hold something precious. A season you did not think possible.

Some dreams do not die. Some dreams linger, waiting for God’s power and the right season. Some dreams you did not ask for, but God gave to you anyway.

Think: Nothing is impossible for God.

Pray: “Father-God, no dream is impossible with You.
