It is exciting to be involved in what God is doing in this hour!
My expectations are lifted up to the hills from which comes his help, my help come from the Lord.
When I prayed aloud in early morning prayer, I prayed ‘our expectations,” are lifted up to the hills, from which cometh forth our help.
I knew well that the scripture says, ” Our eyes,” yet I repeated it again as our ‘expectations,’ are lifted up, because I sensed a interpretation or a new perspective was being released.
Psalm 121: 1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the hills ( His Holy Dwelling, Mt Zion) from whence shall my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Our expectation comes many times from what our eyes are seeing.
If we see spiritually, we are looking up . God is always calling us to come up!
Joel 2:28 prophesies in the last days, God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh! Your young man shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams.
Acts 2:17 Confirms Joel 2, we are in the last days, and God is pouring out revelation. He will continue to do that until the last day!
In the ‘Divinity Code to Understanding Your Dreams and Visions,’ the writers explain that these passages are not talking about ‘natural,’ age. They are speaking spiritually.
Dreams come to everyone, believers and unbelievers alike. God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh. But visions come to believers.
The old man is dead to the things of God. However, God can speak to him in dreams much like Jesus spoke in parables.
Young men refers to those who have been born again, who have what Paul calls the ‘new man.’
2 Corinthians 5:17 ” If anyone is in Christ , he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”
The old man was before Christ and the new man is after Christ. The old men dream dreams, the young men see visions.
We have a tendency to think naturally, when God is speaking spiritually. That’s is why God is speaking to us today!
He speaks to us everyday, in various ways. We just have to listen.
The Old Testament Prophets heard God through parable type dreams and visions. In the New Covenant, all who have ‘ears,’ to hear, will be taught by His Spirit.
Holy Spirit is our representative of the godhead on earth. He helps us connect to heaven!
We must train our ears to hear. We must discern our dreams. We must be open to visions.
Like Habakkuk in chapter 2 : I think I will sit upon my watch and wait and see what God will say to me. Then I will write the vision and make it plain, so that those who read it may run with it!
I am prepared to listen spiritually, whether in dream or vision, or any of the various ways He speaks!
We can count on the truth in Hebrews 4:12 “The word of the Lord is living and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
What are we expecting God to do today? Not much? Above and beyond?
We have to lift our ‘eyes,’ and have ‘ears,’ to hear and agree with God for our lives!
Then our mouths will declare His expectations for our lives!
It’s fun to live expecting the best, not the worst!
